Thrice

 

frogsnailSnails will only thrive where the atmo is clean and clear.
Pretty sure Dom mentioned this in Wild Things… don’t ask me which episode ..!?

Snails are super sensitive and directly in contact with all they touch through their skin. 
They are watery moist animals ruled by moon (and in my opinion) also Neptune.  Yes, I know that seems a bit counter intuitive as land snails and salt are a deadly combo, but there are salt-water snails like the conch for instance.  So yes, also Neptune.
Skin is Saturn, sensitive skin is Aquarius.

My Neptune is in 11 (natural Aquarius house) opposite (peace talks) Moon in my natal. Dealing with tons of public (Moon) is draining (Neptune), even if the public is sweet as pie.  I am an empath, a receiver.  Whatever they carry, I also end up carrying a bit of it.

– Recently my day job has been super busy and I have been feeling it.
– I missed a personal (private) deadline (though I was previously warned over 10 years ago I would, I did my utmost to avoid it) I freaked out, and broke out in a rash (hives?) started peeling like a freakin lizard.
How’s that for a Uranus Pluto transit ? I’m moulting.? really ? wtf !
– The last foray into Middle Earth, very bittersweet.
– My anti-anxiety meds (yes, nerves: I have Mercury at MC and Uranus elevated conjunct Sun/Pluto) were cancelled by my pharmacy (why ?!) and I have been days getting that straightened out.
– No meds = stomach (moon) issues
I finally got them last night, took two and slept for 10+ hours. yesYesYES

Neptune is the giant sponge of the zodiac.

If Neptune (or Pisces) is in contact with other outers only aka Uranus or Pluto you predominately feel it as a generational member.
eg. all late 60’s born have Uranus conjunct Pluto, those born now have the square

Neptune in contact with the socials aka Jupiter and Saturn means you will feel it when in large groups or when dealing with society at large.

Neptune in contact with the inners aka Mercury, Venus, Mars means you feel Neptune when you communicate, love or take action – with – young people, women and men, respectively.

Neptune in contact with the luminaries aka Sun or Moon means you mainline Neptune as part of your spirit or emotional life 24/7.  Your self and instincts are light bearers for the spiritual sun.  Conscious and/or subconscious are feeling the tuning fork always.

Planets with Neptune contacts or planets in Pisces will feel the mystical powers of the planet of visionaries, artists and healers.  Use the power of Neptune wisely. 
Speaking of Dom, he has Sagittarius Sun conjunct Neptune and look at all he does to educate humans about wild animals, brilliant !

Here’s a bit on Neptune rulership to give you a better idea.
Read the short descript of the symbolic meaning here, speaks volumes.

One vibe

Isao HASHIMOTO

“I created this work for the means of an interface to the people who are yet to know of the extremely grave, but present problem of the world.” ~ Japanese artist Isao HASHIMOTO
Each nation gets a blip and a flashing dot on the map whenever they detonate a nuclear weapon, with a running tally kept on the top and bottom bars of the screen.

here is the video link for my subscribers on e-mail: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LLCF7vPanrY
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Tonight’s sky… three planets are at the 29th degree, the degree of saturation, culmination.

Sun is awareness -presently in Capricorn (self- interest), soon moving into progressive Aquarius (Earth tribe).

Saturn is Earth- presently on the scales of Libra (cooperation), soon moving under the scrutiny of powerful Scorpio.

Neptune is spiritual intelligence- presently in eccentric Aquarius, soon drifting home to the healing waters of Pisces.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This sky feels heavy.  I have natal Sun at 29 degrees.
The world is sick. I am sick, and my cat is sick.
When I am feeling better, I will discuss the 29th degree more fully.

Transit Mars is in my Virgo house (pets) activating my stellium (Sun/Uran/Pluto), transit Mars is also activating my natal Neptuner (which happens to be conjunct all my Egyptian kitty cat asteroids- and opposite my Leo stuff.)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As I write this, Saggo Moon is quintile Neptune and Mercury is quintile Uranus.

Please join me in dark moon blessing for our Mother Earth and all Earthkind.
We depend on Gaia, we must defend her as well.

The New Moon is Monday in Aquarius.
Visualize, initiate and manifest changes that will heal.

New Moon in Aquarius is an electric, magnetic vibe

Moon rules the public.
All one.

As our Moon and our blessings grow to full ~ our collective thought energies will create change.

the face of the Earth

As the palms of the hand or placement of moles on the body tell tales of the life of a human, meteorite falls speak the history and future of Gaia.

Chinese face reading is based on the same ancient science as acupuncture, references have been found in texts that date back to 600 B.C.E.  The study is based on the micro/macro universe, meaning each part of the body is a representation of the whole.

The face is broken up into zones of life: hairline is adolescence, forehead 20’s, eyes 30’s, nose 40’s, mouth 50’s, chin 60’s, jaw 70’s, sides of face 80’s & 90’s, bottom of chin 99/100.

The top third portion of the face is the analytical zone, the middle is the practical zone, and the bottom third is the intuitive zone.

The right side of your face is the public side, the left is the private side, what you keep to yourself.

Chinese face reading considers anything that sticks out on the face a sign of good luck.  For instance, most moles are considered good luck, they are extra metal – metal refines, it is inward moving energy, contracting and hardening.  Metal represents the time of late fall and old age.

Any scars on the face have the effect of diminishing the power that feature symbolizes.  For instance a scar on the chin would decrease willpower, a scar on the eyebrow would decrease self – confidence.  (A unibrow signifies an overabundance of pushy wood energy, a tendency towards bossiness, frustration and anger.)

It is interesting to note my Mother and I each have a mole above our eyebrow.  Mine is above my left (private), hers is above her right (public).  She has a chart that is very nearly a grand sextile and she enjoys groups, clubs etc…  I have Neptune (the hidden) most highly aspected, Sun conjunct rebellious Uranus, and I do my own thing.
I. don’t. do. groups. or clubs. or etc.. haha
(The only herd I belong to is its own indescribable chaotic masterpiece.)


Barringer Crater, east of Flagstaff, AZ

Mountains are Yang – masculine, active, outgoing energy.
Day, conscious awareness.

Valleys are Yin – feminine, reactive, introverted energy.
Night, unconscious instinctual awareness.

Barringer Crater (yin) is located in the middle third (practical zone – builders and steady achievers *), on Arizona’s (ground standpoint) left half (privately owned crater), on the right (public or famous) half of the United States.

*Daniel Moreau Barringer’s struggle to prove the impact origin of his crater is an example of the enormous difference that one determined individual can make – even if that individual is a non-scientist working to change the prevailing scientific view. His story tells us about the importance of intuitive leaps, careful data-gathering, stubbornness, and even self-interest in the progress of science.

The native Saguaro cactus are found in the lower third of Arizona, the intuitive (water) zone.  Saguaro can absorb hundreds of gallons of water during a storm, sometimes weighing up to 3 tons.  They are only found in the Sonoran desert (SW Arizona, part of Baja, California).
Arizona means ‘small spring’, the state motto is “Ditat Deus” or, God Enriches, it is largely known for being the Grand Canyon or Copper state.

When considering the ‘scar’ or crater…the meteor fell 50,000 years ago during the last ice age.  Arizona is ruled by Aquarius, the sign traditionally ruled by both Saturn (earth and time) and Uranus (sudden surprises).   Saturn also rules falling and rocks.

In Chinese face reading, the placement of a scar (age zone) will be when the issue or lesson will be re-addressed in the life.  Around 50,000 years ago humans began building more efficient tools, and making art to bury with their dead.  Linguists surmise it may be language that made the leap possible.

Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury (communication), so perhaps when humans start communicating telepathically, via the earth energy grid, we will have learned the lesson of the crater.

The above is a map of US meteorite finds + falls as of July, 2009.
The map below is world-wide falls as of 2000.

Keep in mind that the earth is covered by 70 % water, and many craters are under the sea, only detectable by satellite imaging.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Recent worldwide meteorite falls (click here – takes time to load)

Most of the world-wide landmass strikes have been above the Tropic of Cancer, the upper third of the world (analytical).  The falls seem pretty evenly divided on either side of the prime meridian, so that’s a toss up.

One could always read the landfalls like tea leaves…I see a boomerang or maybe a kangaroo with a long tail in Australia.
It could be divination through meteorite ‘constellations’…!
Connect the dots, study and make your myth.
I also find it interesting that Hollyweird is about as right (public, famous) as it gets in the US, and in the lower third (intuitive Neptune/film zone) of California.

So what do you think ? 
What do read in your face and on the face of our earth..?

Listed below are the major 2012 meteor showers visible during the night where the expected Zenith Hourly Rate (ZHR) of meteors will be 10 or more, or where the rate may be variable.

Since more meteors are always seen after midnight, these dates are the best mornings to observe.

Much more geology and meteorite impact info here (click).

Transiting Venus (which is conjunct transiting Neptune) is opposite the degree between my natal Venus/Jupiter conjunction (that square Neptune) in the 8th at the moment…snap !

Divination post !

Neptune is waterfalling all over the place, and Neptune rules divination.
Pluto also rules divination / metaphysics and by transit is square my Saturn (earth), which is my chart ruler.
ta da !  Earth divination !  …enjoy…  & stay tuned, the actor’s chart I am doing next has a connection with this crater !

Lastly, for the record, I don’t think we are going to die from a giant meteor strike, giant comet, giant aliens, etc… I just love science and divination !

Fantasea

How cool is this ?
The photo is from here, a terrific photo-filled post about the sculptural artist Jason deCaires Taylor . (click for artist website)

My biggie Neptune (sea) square Venus (art) in Leo (creativity) really digs this !
My Neptune is also opposite Moon, (Neptune= ocean, Moon= tides) so oceanic art is right up my alley ~> Sculptural art placed in the sea and left to age ?!  Very cool !
(Saturn rules age and time, and is my chart ruler)
I was a sculpture major in college, so this really speaks to me.
Working and weaving art in tune with Mother Nature.
(Saturn rules work and spiders/weaving webs/ knots.)
Naturalists are Saturn and Neptune ruled.  Neptune rules inspired art.
Does Jason’s art inspire you..?

Look to the Neptune in your natal chart to see how you are inspired, and how you inspire others

Look for conjuntions to indicate where matters are dreamy, foggy, underwater, basically you are operating on pure inspiration and spiritual guidance.
 (This is also also where you need to be cautious of illusions, and delusions.)
Look for any squares to Neptune to see how you will reach deep within for inspiration.
Look to any oppositions to Neptune to see where others will directly inspire you.

International Space Station Commander Dan Burbank captured spectacular imagery of Comet Lovejoy from about 240 miles above the Earth’s horizon on Wednesday, Dec. 21, 2011.

Spectacular !

Saturn rules ice, dust ; Neptune gas (comet contents) and escapes !

Astrobling

One of the things I love about astrology is how it explains so much about people.
Astrology explains who and what, even how you like.
For instance Neptune is my most highly aspected planet and it rules the sea.
I should be an ocean gal, then right..?!
No.
Mountain girl all the way !
Why is that..?
My Neptune has squares (conflict), while my chart ruler, Saturn (Saturn is Earth, rules Capricorn my Ascendant, is the mountain goat) has a trine (ease) to Mars.
That feels better.
Look to your chart, you will find yourself naturally going for the trines and sextiles every time.  They are the back door, the trapdoor, and the secret passage out of trouble with squares and oppositions in your chart.

Here is a pic of stuff I had gathered pre-astro knowledge.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have Saturn trine Mars (steel, fire & the forge).

Sun conjunct the morphed metal is my Virgo Sun conjunct Uranus Pluto (heat, change, morph, forge) in the 9th (lucky horseshoe).I have Libra at Midheaven (ruled by Venus, art), hence balance sculpture/art.
My Venus (art, friends) is conjunct Jupiter in Leo (creativity, luck).
I am an artist, and have creative friends, I like cats.
I have a ‘thing’ about naming things. Mercury (names) at MC, with Neptune (fictitious names) most highly aspected.
I have changed my name to something mystical – representing polarities, time and union.
My cats have names that mean ‘friend’.
Neptune is my most highly aspected planet and it rules film & photography.

Look to your chart to see what you like written in the symbols of the skies …

Swingers

It’s a void moon in Pisces and Uranus is trine the Mercury Venus conjunction so grab your pendulums, folks.

Uranus rules pendulums.
Mercury + Venus = love communication.
Pisces is the cosmos, divination; the Moon, intuition, receptivity.
A trine is the easy swift path between energies.

Moon enters Aries at 1:02 pm Sunday, CST USA.

A void moon is when the moon is not making any significant aspects before leaving the sign it is in.  The Moon rules feelings, intuition, fluctuation, subconscious, the public.  When the moon is adrift in the sky (so to speak) all these matters may wildly fluctuate.

Some folks say that the time of a void moon is a time to stop everything that involves judgement, signing contracts, starting projects or otherwise getting involved with decision making.    I suggest you follow your intuition where this is concerned, though I do suggest caution, after all…better safe than sorry.

Neptune is my most highly aspected planet and it falls in the 11th (natural house of Aquarius, Uranus rules) and my Sun is conjunct Uranus, meaning I get the vibes, and I go with it.  I treat most void moons as if they were dark moons, or introspective times to retreat into quiet thinking, contemplation- a time for release.

I sense it is very similar to a momentary retrograde where the moon energies take a break from going out, and instead flow inward.  It is very much like a high tide and low tide- after all moon is what brings the ocean tides.  The energies are flowing from the outside towards the inside.  Prime divination time- try it !

Above all, the Moon is intuitive so go with what you feel regarding void moons.

As a rule I get better results from a pendulum when I am not feeling well.

Here’s why : Moon rules Cancer, which rules the breast and stomach.  I have Moon (intuition) on the 4th (natural house of Cancer) in Taurus (exalted) opposite Neptune (divination) in Scorpio (metaphysics, the unseen) on the 11th (natural house of Uranus-pendulums- ruled Aquarius).  Uranus rules stress, pendulums, and my stomach issues are stress-induced with high-strung energies of Mercury (MC) and Uranus strong in my chart.  Mercury (communication) is sextile (oportunity) the 8th (unseen) and Uranus is sextile Neptune (opportunity for whammy divination), so if my vibes are outta whack, or strong Uranus action is happening- Yowsa !
Alex- “What is_____” for $500. lol

I have successfully dowsed a hidden water line in my backyard, the gender of unborn babies, and scratch-off lotto wins.  (No I won’t give you the winning numbers, lol. )

Each user generally has a particular direction for yes, no, maybe that is unique to them.  When I began dowsing, I asked which direction meant each answer and it has followed the same since- except when I change pendulums.  In which case, I ask the new pendulum for each direction/ answer when I begin.

I have used Odin stones on leather thongs, forked sticks, rods, rings.
Sacred space, reverence and purpose is the key.  I ask each time I enter sacred space what means what and move forward from there. Some pendulums differ directionally or are very fast/slow it depends on the pendulum. Each pendulum has an inherent energy signature.  Merry meet, find ways & part.

I have 3 crystal pendulums and vary the stone pendulum in accordance to the type of question being asked.  In matters of health and love I have an amethyst & rose quartz, for business I use sardonyx.  I also have a faceted clear crystal which has an energy that is off the charts ~ it is like the Ferrari of pendulums, seriously ~ quicksilver, fast and wild !

Makes sense, since Mercury is quicksilver, and Uranus is Mercury’s higher octave- facets in a gem allow for more refraction of light.  Sun is light, illumination, Mercury quicksilver communication, Uranus prisms, telepathy, Neptune rainbows and divination.

Dowsing works well with a forked stick and a ring on a string, so don’t get the impression that I am all about needing fancy stone pendulums.  Simply open your mind and your eyes to the possibilities, everything on Earth is sacred and vibrating at one speed or another…as long as it swings, it’ll work.

Check your chart for where Mercury, Uranus and Neptune fall and the aspects they make for an indication of your dowsing talents.  

Before I go, one last thing…my brother Jeff (mega- Aquarian) took me to the Wheel Bar in Estes Park, Colorado in the early 80’s where we sat and watched this giant pendulum (that I put into motion) make a spirograph drawing while we ate.
Was the coolest thing ever for 2 Uranian arty types to be doing, really.  (Uranus also rules scientific contraptions.)

I have used Odin stones on leather thongs, forked sticks, rods, rings.
Sacred space, reverence and purpose is the key.  I ask each time I enter sacred space what means what and move forward from there. Some pendulums differ directionally or are very fast/slow it depends on the pendulum. Each pendulum has an inherent energy signature.  Merry meet, find ways & part.

This post is dedicated to my friend who has lost a friend, and to my brother, Jeff who I miss every day.
