Pompeii in Pink

I love Love LOVE Floyd.
You can find my interp for
Syd here.

One of my favorite things is waking up in the morning with a fresh cuppa java, listening to KQED while I read cards.  You can find KQED an hour with Floyd on the sidebar under Neptunes.

Thrillingly, David has whammy sensitive / artistic / musical water placements !

Sun and Venus (exalted) in Pisces trine a Mars Saturn Rx conjunction in Cancer.
Aries Mercury also trines Mars/Saturn, as well as Pluto Rx in Leo.
Obviously, he’s a workhorse (Mars/Saturn) in the name of art and music, (Pisces) with 5 retrogrades and heavy water placements, he hits his groove in solitary productivity.
Saturn hermits, conjunct Cancer Mars – in order to work freely, quietly without distractions.

Incredible how many artists are working T-Squares as a catalyst to creativity.
David has Mars/Saturn as focal point square Aries Moon and Jupiter Rx in Libra.
Aries Moon and Mercury is fiery fuel under all that sensitivity / creativity – head space and emotional space are  in tandem – courageous, passionate, inspired. 

Jupiter expands the exploratory creative drives of Venus ruled Libra – while conjunct Chiron Rx – he writes and teaches the wound & the healing in his music. Lyrics are compelling and magnetic with Uranus in Gemini square Sun in Pisces – Uranus cuts  straight to the universal nitty gritty lyrically, but with an inherent sweetness and hope for all life and love. (Sun Pisces)

david-gilmour-6
Gemini Uranus trines Neptune in Libra – brilliant communicator through art – both are sextile Leo Pluto which is powerful creativity, risk and play via music (Sun Pisces).
David has North Node in Gemini indicating a need to share and distribute ideas.  This is a total thinking placement, but in regards to doing so with others rather than exploring independently.

Lilith in late Scorpio is delving deep into unseen desires and with an exact trine to Venus, we have an independent trailblazing creative without a shadow of a doubt.
Mercury quintiles Uranus which again solidifies he is an inspired communicator.

I saved the very best for last !

I always knew they were sincerely playing some kind of cosmic tribute to the dead.
I have asteroid Pompeja aka Pompeii 203 bang on my natal Uranus.

David has asteroid Melpomene conjunct Pompeii in Capricorn (earth, past) exactly quintile Chiron Rx (the wounded healer) in Venus-ruled Libra.
OoOoo musical healing across timespace – gives me gooseflesh ! !

Leo rules Italy; Aries and Sagittarius rule Naples.  Pluto and Uranus rule volcanoes. In  79 AD, devastating volcanoes of that magnitude were unheard of.  I will link a doco in comments.

Look to asteroid Pompeii to see how you deal with completely unexpected circumstances that blow your mind and your world inside out.
I guarantee you having Pompeii on Uranus is a wild ride.

gave birth to thunder

She gave him a smile and in turn
he crafted a planet out of her.

He piled her fears deep under ground,
and covered them with soil
so dreams, like flowers, would bud.

From her tears he created the oceans,
waves of sorrow and joy.

Her sighs turned into wind,
and her screams,
of passion and anger
gave birth to the thunder.

She was the Earth,
and in turn he perished
and became the moon.

Forever cursed
to orbit around her.

Wheels turn and changes are upon us…
Apologies for being late with this – I was having a bit of a breakdown breakthrough  transit myself.  Two Toro Moons opposite Saturn (my ruler, nearly Rx) with Pluto coming and going.  Tower card showed up a couple of times, fun weekend.
So on to what’s up in a nutshell…

Sun into Pisces is a dream paradise vacation in the la la land of mystics, soothsayers, inspired artists of all kinds, healing, vivid dreamscapes – both waking and sleeping. 
Pisces have such a lovely energy … they are sensitive, compassionate – thinking in terms of inclusiveness and cosmic consciousness. 

Negative people and energies can be toxic to the Pisces psyche.  They are sponges picking up vibrations of whatever is around them; one reason they – more than any other zodiac sign – need to cultivate friendships with hi qi sensitives like themselves.   Spiritual intelligence is strong with Pisces Suns, they are transcenders who are highly intuitive, and sacrifice for the greater good.  [ Low qi Pisces can be delusional, escapist, impractical, prone to addictions, timid and deceptive.]

Saturn Rx brings inner revisions of structures, achievements, goals and responsibilities; in Scorpio, Saturn Rx delivers re-working and transforming the power that drives the building.  Saturn likes it lean and clean – Scorp house is keen to formulate re-birth.

Saturn Rx in Scorp is also an aspect of re-defining relationships – with authority and men, particularly older men, or fathers.  note: Saturn is re-applying to an exact sextile with Pluto in Cap – mutual reception with metamorphic Pluto – take the opportunity presented – transformation and metamorphosis is imminent and supremely supported  re: the above – count on it.

Mercury Rx in Pisces is primo for subconscious revisions of how we flow through our lives and perceive and relate with the cosmic ALL ONE.  Mercury is thinking, messages, communication, perceptions and self-expression of all kinds.  Mercury Rx in Pisces spins a fantastic tale of the ultimate spiritual quest in the final frontier – our minds.
Oy – in tandem with Saturn Rx in Scorp the house of the unseen mysteries – honey we are going deep sea diving in the SUBsubconscious … this oughta be good.
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Full Moon in Virgo has our feelings in opposition to a googob of Pisces: Neptune, Sun, Chiron, Mars and Mercury Rx (re-applying conjunction to them all).  In addition, Moon at 7 is opposite Sun at 7 – both in square to Jupiter in Gemini at 7 degrees.

::: any planet near 7 degrees (+/- 5 degrees) you will be feeling this Moon ! :::

That makes ginormous thinking / chattering Gemini Jupiter the focal point of the superhighway Lunar information glut.   haha lucky Jupiter makes me visualize cloverleafs on the freeway…

What do I mean by that ?

Full Moon saturation illuminates Mercury-ruled Virgo house – information and messages are most certainly incoming to all Virgos – and Virgo sorts by nature.  Pisces Sun absorbs and Gemini is the revolving door of factoids.

Mercury Rx on the 23rd, Full Moon on the 25th means the brainpan is shifting and popping – times near stations are often bumpy.  Keep in mind – Mercury is dualities, rules Gemini and Virgo.

Note: Uranus (polarities) is quincunx Moon just prior to Full, so expect a weird emotional message to pop in re: actions, men or powershifts that will change your thinking and emotions revolving around some long-standing structures.

Also note:  Pisces 19 degree Mercury Rx re-applying to 18 degree Mars puts them in trine to 19 degrees North Node of Destiny in Scorpio as Saturn Rx retreats from a conjunction to NNode.  Authority, an older figure or crumbling structure of some kind retreats to lick its wounds via a re-applying trine to Chiron, Sun and Neptune in Pisces.
 It is meant to be…go re-read Saturn Rx if it freaks you out.

Adaptation, improvisation.

We will feel Full Moon emotional tug of war / peace talks in these areas:
what we think / how we perceive
how we act upon it / how others react to us
are we healing / inspiring to ourselves and others
what does our spirit desire / what is our life work – are they compatible

The Wind’s Song
by
Saul Stacey Williams

the square root of a kiss is a hum
 i hum under my breath when i contemplate
the drum of your heartbeat
and my heart beats for your breath
 i revel in the wind for mere glimpses

i’m tornado over you
would you look into the eye of my storm
 i whirlwind through your life like breeze
and fill your lungs
 as we achieve the second power of a hum

I love…

as instruments come to life through breath
the wind sends my high notes to indigo communions
with Coltrane’s “Favorite Things”
…this is my body
which is given for you,
this is my blood
 which is shed for you…

my love like the wind, uncaged
blows time into timeless whirlpools
 transfiguring fear and all of it’s subordinates
(possession, jealousy, fear)
into crumbling dried leaves

my love
is the winds slave
and, thus is free

my love
 is the wind that is shaped
as it passes through the lips of earthly vessels
becoming words of wisdom
songs of freedom
or simply hot air

my love is the winds song
 if it is up to me, i’ll never die.
 if it is up to me, i’ll die tomorrow
one-thousand times in an hour
and live seven minutes later

if it is up to me, the sun will never cease to shine
 and the moon will never cease to glow
 and i’ll dance a million tomorrows
in the sun rays of the moon waves
and bathe in the yesterdays of days to come
ignoring all of my after thoughts
& preconceived notions

if it is up to me,
if it is up to me.
and thus my love:
untainted
eternal

the wind is the moons imagination wandering:
it seeps through cracks
explores the unknown
and ripples the grass
my love is my souls imagination
 how do i love thee?

weavers of webs

Let me tell you I have loved Loved LOVED  Janet McTeer since Tumbleweeds !  Then came Songcatcher, a tale full of backwoods bluegrass and a teacher hellbent on documenting  the culture and music of hill people.  A great concept, well done.  I know everything  Janet does will be top notch.

Pictured above is Glenn Close with Janet (right) – I recently watched Albert Nobbs and loved it !  It’s a great story of poor 19th century Irish women making their way in the world under difficult circumstances.  If you haven’t seen it, do – these women are fabulous !
::::::::::::::::
Janet is a Leo Sun, Gemini Moon.

Janet has Sun, Mercury (not conjunct) with Uranus conjunct North Node all in Leo.
Hello ! Born for the camera, and the camera loves her.  She is versatile with her Gem Moon, it sextiles Mercury making her a chameleon of sorts.  She has this lovely underlying earthy Saturnian vibe (in Capricorn, it rules) with a kick of unusual visionary perception – Jupiter in Aquarius – that is just flat – out fun and quirky !

Janet has the octaves of artistic creativity trine one another – Cancer Venus trines Scorpio Neptune.  Neptune (rules inspired creativity and film) is also the focal planet of a T- Square with Mercury and Jupiter – Scorps don’t miss a thing.  Those planets are all fixed and that means building.  She is just so fun to watch – minute details (Jupiter and Saturn trine Mars in Virgo) that give each character such depth and complexity unfold with such grace. 
:::::::::::::::::

::::::::::::::
Glenn Close is obviously also fabulous, with credits such as The Big Chill, Fatal Attraction, and Dangerous Liasons (my personal favorite).

Glenn is a Pisces Sun, Aquarius Moon, with Leo rising.  She has 8th house Pisces Mercury conjunct Mars both square Uranus in Gemini on the 11th.  That one is edgy – whipsmart and otherworldly perceptive, she can play creepy very well.

Glenn has an Grand Air trine with 11th house Uranus in Gemini, 3rd house Neptune in Libra, and Venus conjunct Moon in Aquarius 7th.  Those are stellar intuitive planets and placements for artistic ability and depth of communicating the soulful underbelly of human nature.

She also has a Grand Trine (out of sign) with Scorpio Jupiter, Pisces Sun and Saturn in Leo.  Pluto and Saturn are rising in the dragon hours, giving the traits of unpredictability, ambition, strong opinions, being outspoken as well as lucky.  Pluto is conjunct the ASC from the 12th and opposes Venus in the 7th – her artwork needs to reveal and transform – always.  She is one intense lady who has created a fabulous body of work.
:::::::::::::


Some quickie synastry between Janet and Glenn:

Janet’s Sun is conjunct Glenn’s Pluto.
Janet’s Mercury is conjunct Glenn’s Saturn, both of which trine Glenn’s Sun.
Janet’s Neptune is conjunct Glenn’s Chiron, both of which trine Glenn’s Mercury / Mars conjunction.
Janet’s Moon is conjunct Glenn’s North Node, both of which trine Glenn’s Neptune.

Amazing work ladies !  Thank you.

May I introduce singer, songwriter, poet and actor John Doe.
He has appeared in over 50 films and television productions, with some of his most notable roles in Road House, Georgia, Roadside Prophets, Great Balls of Fire, Pure Country and Roswell.  Long list here.

He founded the LA punk band X, soon after he met Exene Cervenka at the Venice, California poetry workshop in 1976.  X released 7 records from 78-93, the documentary of the life of their band The Unheard Music  was included in the Sundance UCLA Archive of greatest films of all time.  X is still actively touring today – they open for Pearl Jam in June in Europe.

John has recorded more than a half dozen albums as a soloist or in collaboration with other artists, such as Patti Griffin, Aimee Mann, Eddie Vedder and many more.  The video above features Cindy Wasserman and Dave Carpenter.  I am pleased to tell you a bit about the astro behind this amazingly talented man.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

John is a life path 1, this is a life of innovation, vital potential, he is a creative pioneer.

John is a Pisces Sun, conjunct an exact conjunction of Venus and Mercury, also in Pisces.  Pisces are compassionate and artistic, they see the depth of human nature and are sensitive to the environment, the vibrations of the people and places around them. Venus is exalted in Pisces – conjunct Mercury, making the communication of inspired creations prominent in his life.

Sun is the creative force, the house that ‘shines’ in the natal.  John’s Sun squares (internal tension) the houses of the lower (learning thinking) and higher (philosophies and ethics) mind, giving him the urge to manifest creations from what he thinks and sees – the creative outlets release this inner (square) tension.

Venus is not only exalted, but also in mutual reception with Neptune in Libra.  This creates an easier expression between the energies and houses – they are in the sign the other rules, so they ‘get each other’ and can work well as a team.

Venus is cultivated artistry, Neptune is the higher octave, inspired artistry.  Neptune rules poetry, film and stringed instruments, and is trine (easy energy) with Jupiter in Gemini – Jupiter expands and Gemini communicates through thought and word.  Gemini Jupiter is opposite Sagittarius Moon / Mars conjunction making John a wordsmith.


Mars conjunct Moon gives the feelings (Moon) a kick start energy expression – though the moon fluctuates by nature- this energy may come and go in waves with the cycles of the Moon.  Mars fires up the emotions, this aspect can be a spitfire, half-cocked, impulsive type of energy, with the emotions leading rather than the mind.  This aspect is best relieved by physical labor or creative pursuits.

John soaks up (Pisces feels the vibes) all he SEES  (Sagittarius motto) and feels (Moon) while he travels (Moon and Mars in Sag) near and far…everything is an opportunity to create beauty through words, music and film.

This Pisces conjunction squares John’s Moon / Mars conjunction in Sagittarius; it also squares Jupiter in Gemini which oppose each other, forming a t-square with Venus as the focal planet.  The focal planet becomes the driving energy that needs expressing, it is where the T-square aspect feels the most tension.

Artistic Venus also is trine Saturn in Scorpio and Uranus in Cancer.  Saturn in Scorpio is a powerful placement for achieving deep seated goals that require patience and endurance.  It can easily be crafted into punk, it is an aspect of USING (Capricorn motto – Saturn rules) DESIRES (Scorpio motto) to create art. (Saturn trine Pisces Sun and Venus / Mercury).

Uranus in Moon-ruled Cancer gives an unusual approach to expressing feelings and creating art – instantaneous inspirations are often rising up from the subconscious, giving insight, directions in creativity.

Libra Neptune is trine Gemini Jupiter, again the expansion of ideas and communicating them in easy energy to brainstorming artwork and finding personal balance through expressing the creative self.

John has 5 retrograde planets: Mercury, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.  These planetary energies will express themselves inwardly until an event in the outer world forces the energy to express outwardly.  As the energies begin to express outwardly, they will be a driving force, leading to growth as an artist and communicator.

John has North Node of Destiny conjunct Chiron in Capricorn.  The path to healing (Chiron) will come through patient, long-term work efforts, a life-long love of learning, exploring, and finding new approaches to creative work.  Defining the best USE of his creative gifts and conveying the richness of human experience (Scorpio) will guide him on the path to success.

Thanks for the music~

Naked Rant

Pisces and Neptune peeps often get slapped with labels like vacant, spacey, out to lunch, dreamy, foggy, delusional – one of my personal faves – I assure you.

Such a misconception of ginormous ahem cosmic proportions.

I have Neptune most highly aspected, let me be perfectly clear – Pisces and Neptunians are perfectly aware of the boundaries, and when they have been breached.

We choose not to engage you.

Pisces remains secluded by choice  due to an overabundance of sensitivity.  Weak Pisces seeks medication to numb themselves from the onslaught of psychic information coming at them from the cosmos 24/7.  Neptunians must have seclusion on a regular basis in order to disengage and recharge the psychic boundaries.

Pisces (and Neptune, its ruler) is a sign that suffers until it grows in strength and turns the burden into a gift.  They are often misunderstood because they experience life on a higher plane, the subconscious pours into the conscious waking perceptions. The hidden must be revealed and dealt with in broad daylight in order for Pisces to grow in spiritual intelligence.

Pisces and Neptunians can read you through psychic feelers.  In an instant, your body language, vocal patterns and vibrations are read – enlightenment of your emotional status is acknowledged and released back into the cosmic waters.  Pisces and Neptunians learn quickly to disengage from over absorption and create psychic and emotional boundaries of colossal strength. 

They get off on music, art, mysticism and nature.  They are tapped into the cosmic source of inspiration and spiritual transcendence and universal understanding.
The fishes know when to go with the flow, they know when to swim upstream.

Pisces are capable of great healing powers, and with wise use of the force, they are the Jedi Masters of the Zodiac.

rutilated forsythia fortifier

Forsythia blossoms steeping in Pisces solar power.

1. Use unmarked glass lidded dishes (to keep nosey felines away) – these were half price at a local store.

2. bottled spring water

3. meditation to raise energy with the plant, a blessing.

4. a pendulum question and answer session with the plant.  ie: one plant was more receptive to offering than another

5. gently pick flowers- enough to cover the surface of the water.  Since this essence is for me I didn’t get all weird about touching the blossoms and transferring my energies etc..

6. You may boost the power of the essence with the appropriate stone by putting it in to steep with the flowers.

7. Let your blossoms steep in sunlight (or moonlight if you prefer- I did that for my fall clematis on the last Neptune in Aquarius Pisces full moon) for 2-4 hours in direct sun in a place you know shadows will not fall upon the jar.

8. Strain with cheesecloth, have a sterilized bottle ready for the essence.

9.  Fill bottle halfway with essence, top off with rum, or brandy to preserve the subtle vibrational quality of the Mother essence.

10.  To prepare for dosage: use two drops of Mother Essence in a one-ounce dark-glass bottle with a glass dropper, and fill the remainder of the bottle with half rum and half spring water.

11.  Drop 3-4 drops under your tongue daily or as needed.

Flower essence and gem elixir work with the subtle bodies, the etheric field.  They have a vibrational quality that directly relates to the individual – they are based on sympathetic molecular structure.  The essences work harmonically, in tandem with the electromagnetic field of the etheric and physical body, raising the vibration and thereby, health of the individual.

The stone I chose to use is rutilated quartz : tissue regeneration, brain stimulator, enhances and increases thought forms; storage and broadcast of thought forms.

I also chose citrine : mental discipline, greater emotional control, clearer thought forms. Thought forms and broadcasting of them is stimulated.  Self-destructive tendencies are alleviated, confidence is rekindled through a balancing of the astral, emotional, mental, soul, and spiritual bodies; meridians and nadis are stimulated.

Mercury Rx (thinking) and Uranus (intuition and clairvoyance) are conjunct in Aries now.
Moon is in Aquarius square the planets of abundance, Venus and Jupiter; Venus and Jupiter are part of a grand earth trine.

So abundance is based in the mindset, yes  ?

There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way.

In my natal, Mercury is at MC; Uranus conjunct Virgo Sun and Pluto in 9, and Uranus is quintile Sagittarius Mars in 11.  Thought forms and the broadcasting of them will be stepping up to the plate on my astrological ball diamond here soon, so I am fortifying with gem elixir & flower essence.

Forsythia :

The Forsythia elixir has the capacity to energize many aspects of the loving nature in people, bringing them to more easily accept this in themselves. Sometimes this will make it easier to tolerate and accept others; to really see people of completely different cultural, ethnic, religious, even class backgrounds, and be able to more easily love them. The emotional body is significantly cleansed with Forsythia, especially where it is connected to any other person, and most people will find themselves more energized. Use of this flower helps one to see abundance in all things, let go of the concepts of short supply, and recognize abundance in oneself and in others.
