New Moon Magic October 12 - 15, 2015

We have a New Moon on Monday Oct 12th, at 5:05 pm PDT.  New Moons are magical times.  The energies and lessons from the previous month are waning down and we are preparing for new beginnings and new energy to come into our lives. This particular New Moon happens to be in the sign of LIBRA, which is the sign of relationships. All one-on-one relationships that is - platonic, romantic, business etc..

The New Moon is at 19 degrees of Libra, and it also happens to very closely oppose Uranus and square Pluto. Uranus is the planet of liberation and freedom and change, and Pluto is the planet of transformation.  Put this all together and we have a new beginning that has to do with liberating ourselves from old habits/situations/people that are no longer in our best interest. We are all transforming from the inside out, and this New Moon is helping us to more fully own our own power by no longer giving it away to the other people in our lives. The Uranus aspect is a very separative aspect, so those in relationships that are just going through the motions are likely not going to make it through the next month. Which is a good thing, because how can you go ahead and do what you're here to do if you're bogged down with energy and people that are not supporting you in that way?  This New Moon can also be a wonderful time for meeting new friends and new lovers - people that are interesting and different (Uranus) or maybe even from a different culture. Even if you're in a strong relationship, you may feel the need for more space during this time, so be sure to give it to yourself.

New Moons are fabulous times to set intentions about what you want to manifest over the coming month.  Ancient lore says to always have money in your pocket during the actual New Moon, to ensure that you will have money all month long. Write down what you want to manifest in your life, or do some sort of ritual that has meaning for you. Doing a ritual involves invoking powers greater than ourselves, such as God, Goddess, Archangels, Angels or even fairies and elementals to help us achieve our aims. One could also use animal totems or animal medicine.

The window of opportunity is a few days - the New Moon is exact on the 12th afternoon, so you've got until the 15th to make use of this powerful energy for growth and manifestation.

Friday, 25 September 2015


Moonbathing - where one actually sits outside and views the moon -  helps to balance all aspects of the body. It's incredibly healing.  Just as absorbing the rays of the sun is important to the body, so is absorbing the rays of the moon.  The Sun is more action oriented, and the moon is more receptive. Moonbathing helps one to become more sensitive, more receptive, and more still. It activates 'yin', and can help to balance someone who has too much 'yang' or too much fire or anger.

 During a full moon, the body's healing potential is at its peak, and the body's energy flow is activated and harmonized. Moonbathing accentuates that. Moonbathing also stimulates the pineal gland, a tiny gland that helps to regulate the sleeping/waking cycle, as well as many other body rhythms. When we go outside to see the moon, our bodies can more easily adjust when we are physically outside in nature picking up nature's signals, and visibly seeing the moon with the naked eye.

So, get thee outside and bathe in the moon! Or, at least gaze at it through an open window.

Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse Sept 27, 2015

Yes indeed, we have a Total Lunar Eclipse on Sept 27th, 2015 which is also known as the Blood Moon, which also happens to be the 4th Blood Moon in the Tetrad of Blood Moons. This is a Total Lunar Eclipse, which means that the Moon passes directly behind the Earth and into the Earth's shadow. Partial eclipses are when the Moon only gets into part of the Earth's Shadow, but a Total Eclipse is when the Earth blocks all of the Sun's light from reaching the Moon.   During this Total Lunar Eclipse, the Moon turns a rusty red colour, which is why its called a 'blood moon.'

It's also a SuperMoon, which refers to a lunation with the moon approaching very close to the Earth, and thereby will look larger than usual -about 15 % larger. This is why we feel the lunar effects so intensely.

Lunar Eclipses are super extra powerful full moons (not to mention that its a supermoon to boot) so emotions and passions are going to be running high. This is 'truth telling' time.  If you've been unhappy in some part of your life, you're going to feel like you just can't hack it another moment longer, and what were you thinking sticking it out this long, and you're going to take action.  Same goes for relationships, which is why this can be a rough time as emotions can just suddenly erupt out of nowhere. The Sun is in the relationship sign of Libra, so love relationships are going to be a big focus for this eclipse. Some start, some may end, and some may just reboot.

This Eclipse also happens to be the last of the much talked Blood Moon Tetra. There have been many biblical references to 'the 4 blood moons' and so many people have been recoiling in fear at what this means for humanity. I think a lot of that is hype. Its really just fear-mongering, which is what a lot of the organized religions did very well in order to control the masses. Eclipses are the Universe's way of pushing you back on track when you have gone off course. Eclipses give you an inkling of your best future. Yes, eclipses can be quite uncomfortable - simply because their energy is so intense.Think of it this way, the degree to which you resist is the degree to which you suffer. Best to go with the path that the eclipse shows you.

This Eclipse week is pretty active. That is the week that the Pope comes to the US to appear before Congress. Many believe this is when he will come out and admit to the existence of extra-terrestials. Apparently its a race to disclosure, and some want to control the narrative of that.  It also happens to fall on the 7 year cycle of the western economy. There has been a crash, or a major correction, in the stock market every 7 years for the last 60 years or so, almost like clock work, and since the last one was Sept 2008, people believe that the next one will be Sept/Oct 2015. This one may actually be true, because as an astrologer I know first hand that cycles work. It's what astrology is based on. Saturn squares itself every 7 years, and in marriages it has been dubbed 'The Seven Year Itch. This Saturn square may have something to do with the regularity of these economic crashes/corrections. Every time we've had one, Saturn has been in a mutable sign...and since it just entered the mutable sign of Sag, it looks like all bets are off for the next couple of years, since the market is so extremely volatile right now.

Get outside to view this eclipse if you can. It helps to relax the brain and is good for the body/mind/spirit connection.  It is visible here on the west coast of North America - including Vancouver - between 5:11 pm and 10:22 pm - with maximum exactness at 7: 47 pm  However, the moon will be seen just over the eastern horizon at its exactness at around 8 pm, so if you live in an area with a lot of trees, it may not be high enough yet to see it.  It should be more easily visible by 9 pm though.

The Full Moon Eclipse is also called The Harvest Moon. This is the full moon nearest the autumnal equinox, bright enough to allow farmers to work late into the night, bringing in the last of the harvest. Apparently, if you stare at this full moon with a question, it will become clear what has to be done.

I like the mystical and magical effects of these rare celestial influences. These are times when we can really harness the energies and make a difference in our lives. If you want to let go of an old habit or instigate a new one, do it under this Full Moon Eclipse.  Instead of sitting and waiting to see what will happen, decide what YOU want to have happen and harness this energy for yourself.   This is a very rare and powerful time, so be sure to use the energy somehow - you have 2.5 days to use this energy!  Write out intentions and read them aloud. Do a ritual. Do your best to go outside and look at the moon at this time, as the primal brain responds to its energy. It reminds us that we are indeed connected to the cosmos and it has beneficial effects on our emotional, mental and physical bodies.

Saturn enters Sagittarius today!

Saturn entered Scorpio in October of 2013. and now leaves it for good on Sept 17th.!  Everyone was affected by this intense transit in some way, although some more than others.

We had a brief preview of Saturn moving into Sagittarius earlier this year, but then he dipped back into Scorpio for the summer, just to bring one last push to whatever it was we were working on for the last 2.5 years.

Sometimes its easier to see what something was about when we are able to get the bird's eye view and look back on it.

What happened in the fall of 2013?  You embarked on a mission of transformation, letting go or healing in some way at that time. Saturn in Scorpio demands we go deep, and we emerge healed in some way at the end of it.  Many of us lost loved ones and now we're moving on and dealing with that loss in our lives.  In effect, everyone is now moving on in a new way, with some sort of transformation and healing having taken place on a physical, mental, emotional or spiritual level.

Saturn in Sagittarius is a much lighter energy thank goodness.  For more info on what you can expect, check my post Saturn in Sagittarius.

Sagittarian Sun, Moon and Asc people are really going to feel this transit the most, or anyone who has personal planets in Sag.

Saturn enters Sag today, and goes forward through to 16.24 degrees of Sag before he turns retrograde.  The thing with Saturn transits, is that they are in effect from the moment that they move forward toward aspecting a point in your chart. So, for example if you have your Sun at 14 degrees of Sag, guess what, you're going to feel that Saturn starting tonight!!!  Yes, Saturn is interesting that way.  Some transits you only feel when they get very close to the planet in your chart, but not Saturn.  Saturn starts from day one.  However, if you have a significant point at 17 degrees of Sag, you won't feel Saturn until later next year because he goes retrograde before he hits it.

So, for everyone Sagittarius born from  Nov 22nd to Dec 8th, you're in the midst of a Saturn transit to your Sun starting tonight.  You may even get a little symbolism tonight or tomorrow as to what this transit may mean for you - sort of like Saturn saying hello. In general, Saturn transits bring more work and we take om more responsibility - this can be when someone buys a house, or gets married or get pregnant.  It can be when we take on that big project at work that requires long hours, or when we start our own business. It can be when we need to start taking more responsibility for aging parents, or simply when we start to look toward consolidating for our future. Saturn can also show us where we need to pull back, as well as make us accountable if we've been treating others, or even ourselves, unfairly.  Saturn doesn't let anyone get away with much of anything, which is why Saturn represents authority.

Some famous Sagittarians who are going to be feeling this Saturn transit starting tonight are:

Scarlett Johansson
Britney Spears
Miley Cyrus (backlash?)
Tyra Banks
Ian Somerhalder
Julianne Moore
Amanda Seyfried
Ben Stiller
Katherine Heigl
Christina Applegate
Ed Harris
Marisa Tomei
Bette Midler
Anna Faris

As well as some Sun in Geminis who will have Saturn opposing their Sun:

Angelina Jolie
Nicole Kidman
Colin Farrell
Morgan Freeman

Jupiter in Virgo August 11, 2015 - Sept 2016

Jupiter entered a new sign this month after being in Leo for one full year. Yep, Jovial Jupiter enters the sign of Virgo on August 11th and he stays there until September of 2016.

Jupiter is the largest planet in our galaxy, which is perfect symbolism as astrologically he's also the planet that urges us to grow, to expand and to reach for the stars.  He rules higher education, the law, international travel, philosophy, not to mention just having a really good time.  He's a party animal, that one.  Everything to excess, he always says.  Growth and expansion are his thing, and not just on the mental level either. Jupiter is usually around when women get pregnant and expand on the physical level.  He's also around when people gain weight (typically when Jupiter hits the Ascendant).  For the most part, Jupiter brings opportunity and he helps us to feel confident in ourselves.

Jupiter in Virgo is a little different however, because here Jupiter wants us to expand by actually making things smaller - by streamlining procedures and cutting back on excess.  Yes, as you can probably already tell, Jupiter is not at his happiest when he's in Virgo.  Jupiter in Virgo is actually in its detriment. He can't just throw caution to the wind and expand willy-nilly. Nope. Here he has to be more refined and cautious.

Jupiter in Virgo seeks to improve things, to expand and grow by cutting back on the non-essentials. Here he's going to get rid of excess and focus on what really works. For example, Jupiter also rules publishing. So here, in Virgo, Jupiter can help someone grow and expand in the publishing world by editing and refining copy and being particular about which words to words. Virgo is a master wordsmith by the way.

Another good example is picking off the deadheads off your flowering plant. If you pinch off the faded flowers, the plant is coaxed into produced even more buds and flowers.

Jupiter in Virgo is where less really is more. Here he's not going to be the big party animal.  Here's he's going to be urging you to go the spa and to go on a juice fast and to take up pilates. He'll urge you to put down the Snickers bar and to be more particular about what you eat. Jupiter in Virgo is great for anything health-related or diet related or fitness related.  He supports you in your journey to better health - that's how he's supporting you in growing. Restaurant trends will be for healthier food, and there will be more allowance for dietary restrictions, thank goodness.

Virgo is picky and detail oriented, so Jupiter in Virgo is the time when the small picky details are going to be magnified. People are going to see the trees instead of the forest.

Jupiter's sign sets the trend for the coming year.  It shows what will be in favour, and also what industries will expand.  Business astrologers say to invest in business and industries that represent whatever sign Jupiter is transiting in, because their profits will increase.

So, what will be trendy or in favour for the coming year?  Health!  Anything to do with being as healthy as you can be. Super green smoothie drinks, even better blenders, spa packages, new and better diet tips and tricks, meditation and yoga. New and better ways to meld body, mind and spirit. Because the whole planet is waking up in consciousness, I wonder if the trend will be for people to adopt a higher vibrational diet. More plant based food, and perhaps more compassion for animals and how we treat them. Walter Palmer killing Cecil the lion and the outrage around it happened just as Jupiter entered Virgo, and it raised awareness of the collective responsibility to protect and respect all of earth's animal life.

Getting a massage is a pleasurable way to maintain good health - very Jupiter in Virgo.  And on a tropical beach is even better, as Jupiter does like to travel.

Virgo also rules craftsmanship, or anything you do with your hands. Crafts of all kinds will be a big trend, and the more skillful and detail oriented the better (Martha Stewart has Venus in crafty Virgo). Knitting, needlepoint, decoupage, or any kind of home improvement or decoration projects are all likely to be this year. Hairdressers use their hands in a skilled way, and they will have a good year, or people will want to train to be a hairdresser. Precision and skill are definitely favoured. Virgo also rules small pets, as well as vets. Perhaps adopting pets from the SPCA will be an even stronger movement than it is right now.

As far as fashion goes, Virgo looks tends to be more on the conservative side. It may bring back the 'buttoned up' look.  It can still be very sexy...think of tall laced up boots. Or blouses with a zillion little tiny buttons on it.  There will be lots of detail and exquisite designs. Understated elegance is the trend here, such as Gwyneth Paltrow or Jennifer Aniston or Audrey Hepburn or Chanel. Nothing too showy or dramatic or colourful. It's more about subtlety, like a super expensive watch or amazing bag. There will be clean lines and elegant simplicity. Expect to see even smaller, yet even more amazing and adaptable versions of tablets and phones and electronic gadgets. We may see more smart cars, or minis. More fuel efficient and smaller cars.

Virgos are going to be having a great year as Jupiter comes up to conjunct their Sun. All earth signs will too, as Jupiter trines their Sun,

So, in general, look to see where you can grow by cutting back or refining or better defining techniques. You have celestial permission to simplify your life! That's the trend for the coming year and you will be celestially supported in doing so, and in fact great gains, rewards and growth will occur because of it.

Have you been seeing 11:11 a lot lately?


Are you seeing a lot of 11's?  Or especially 11:11? I sure have. I was reading a book I got from the library and found the due date slip inside the front cover, and it read Aug 11, at 11:11 am.  I happened to glance at the clock and it was 11:11 pm.  Hmmm.  This has been happening a lot lately, so I queried an expert on the matter. Apparently this is a phenomenom that is taking the world by storm she said.

11:11 represents the awakening of consciousness on the planet.  It's also called' The Shift'. Many awakened scientists confirm that the Earth, and of course humanity, is being bombarded by Galactic Waves of Love.  These are really electromagnetic waves coming from the centre of the Galaxy that are very high in frequency and that have been hitting the planet in waves for the last few years, awakening us to what is really going on in the world (history is not what you think it is), and also supporting each and every human to rise in consciousness.  These waves are increasing in intensity, and will really be intense this September. This involves the releasing of karma....which means the actual physical and emotional releasing of lifetimes of pain and hurt. As you can imagine, this is not the most comfortable process, yet it is necessary to evolve.  The human race and Gaia (the earth) is evolving and ascending into a new dimension.  We've been living in the third dimension for about 26,000 years, and now, right on cue astrologically, we are now in the throes of ascending into the 5th dimension.  Throughout history this new era we've been looking forward to has been called 'The Golden Age'.  David Wilcock's book The Synchronicity Key:  describes the 26,000 year cycle quite well.  Guess what - we're at the very end of that cycle. This is when the Age of Aquarius is really beginning. Every human on the planet is shifting on every single level - physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Whenever you see 11:11, a portal for manifestation is open at that exact moment. This is when you're totally dialed in to the Universe. Pay attention to what's going on at that moment, or what you're thinking about at that moment, because your thoughts at that moment have a strong Universal support to manifest.  It's actually a fantastic time to make a wish - what do you want to manifest!  It's like you're tapped into the centre of the source - its a huge Synchronistic happening and you're part of it.

Jennifer Aniston Marries Justin Theroux - a chart comparison

Jennifer Aniston married Justin Theroux  Wednesday afternoon August 5th, 2015!

Let's look at these charts and then compare them and see what kind of long-term compatibility they have between them.

The third chart is bi-wheel, with Jennifer's chart in the middle, and Justin's chart on the outside. This makes it much easier to see where and how their planets aspect each other.

Jennifer has Venus and Saturn together in Aries in her 7th house. This speaks to challenges in relationships throughout her life, and in fact is one of her karmic lessons. Hers are 12 degrees apart, but I think its strong enough to say they're conjunct, so I will. I wrote a whole post about people who have this aspect. You can read it here. Typically Venus Saturn women tend to marry later in life, or have problems finding the right one. There are usually feelings about not feeling good enough, or deserving, or they feel like they need to 'earn' love.  Often these women make a career (Saturn) from their looks (Venus). Many successful models have this aspect I've found.

First off,  I notice that Justin's Moon in Aries is in Jennifer's 7th house of relationships, so right away she feels comfortable with him.  We tend to feel drawn to those people who have planets in our 7th house. His Moon in Aries is conjunct her North Node (destiny point), as well as her Venus. This is a lovely aspect to have, as she exemplifies what he is looking for emotionally.  Even more importantly, they have the number one aspect of successful marriage (according to the Magi astrologers), which is his Chiron conjunct her Venus.  This is a very strong bond, as the Chiron person, in this case Justin, feels like Jennifer is a soothing balm to his soul. Somehow he feels healed in her presence. (By the way, JLo has this aspect with Casper Smart, which may be why she feels so strongly drawn to him).

On top of that, Justin has Sun and Venus in Leo, which nicely trines her Aries planets in her 7th house. They both have Venus in fire, which shows that they share the same interests and they can get along in a harmonious way. People who have Venus' in different elements or in harsh aspect don't always have a lot in common and they often end up doing many things apart from each other.

His Sun in Leo trines her Saturn, which is a lovely aspect of commitment and longevity. Saturn is the cement that holds people together, for better or for worse, so you need to have aspects with Saturn if you want a long-term relationship.

His Jupiter on her Mars says he inspires her to move forward and to take action, whilst she helps him to to feel supported and inspires him to grow and move onward and upward.  His Mars on her Sun shows that he finds he quite sexy and desirable.

Their individual Mars' are not in harmony though, as his Mars in Aquarius squares her Mars and Neptune in Scorpio. Justin has a Sun Mars opposition natally, and it T-squares to her Mars.  That's a lot of energy to deal with, and it can be passion and excitement on one hand, but also arguments and conflicts on the other.  I bet they have some very heated arguments!  Mars square Mars can be a deal breaker in relationships when it gets activated by a heavy transit. Mars square Mars can be all about competing egos...who's gonna win? Positively they can push each other on to greater things, but negatively it can be an all out war. I'd be very watchful in 7 years when Uranus comes up to trigger their Mars square. Plus, the 7 year itch is a real thing by the way - 7 years is when Saturn in the sky squares the Saturn in the wedding chart.  Saturn squares itself every 7 years, which is why so many couples go through trauma at the 7 year mark.

Mars in Scorpio (Jennifer) is passionate and intense, and can be quite jealous and territorial, depending on the person of course. You don't mess with a Mars in Scorpio person. Mars in Scorpio need to be in control, and they don't like to be too overt about it, as Scorpio is a very secretive sign. I've seen this combination in action. They often hold back the whole truth, or will just say what they need to say to ensure the outcome they want. They are expert, expert manipulators. I know one person with this who is the most expert manipulator of people I've ever seen in my whole life. Add in Neptune, which can be quite deceptive, and you've got a double whammy for passive aggressive behaviour. This aspect can lead someone to play the victim as a means of control. As always, this completely depends on how conscious and self aware the individual is of course, but for sure there will be tendencies towards it, and more enlightened types will have learned how to channel that energy in a different way. My take is that she's not there yet. I think she has controlled the media in such a way that she is perpetually seen as 'the victim' in the whole Brangelina triangle. People forget that she started seeing Justin while he was still living with his then-girlfriend Heidi Bivens. You can read more about that here Celebitchy.

PLUS, she has has Pluto square her Moon.  Yep, another aspect speaking to issues around control and trust. Pluto Moon people don't trust you out of the gate and it takes a lot for them to let you into their circle. Pluto Moon like to control the outcomes of things, so this adds even more oomph to the control issues of her Mars in Scorpio position. Jennifer is also known for being very controlling of her image.  Justin's Pluto squares her Moon as well, making for some intense control issues between them. People with strong Pluto tend to be very charismatic and magnetic in general, which makes them winners in the Hollywood realm.

On the positive side, that Mars Neptune makes her very photogenic and glamorous, as does her Sun square Neptune. Most successful actors have strong Neptune, which allows them to blur their boundaries and actually morph into different characters.  Because of this ability/yearning to lose their boundaries, strong Neptune can also make one more disposed to escapism through drugs and alcohol, which we've seen a lot in Hollywood. Jennifer is known for loving her wine (don't we all!) as well as her pot. I wrote a post about this here
Neptune and Artistry in Hollywood

Jennifer natally has Uranus opposing her Venus. She also has Uranus rising, and she is an Aquarius, so we can safely say that she is a 'Uranian' type.  Uranian types have powerful needs for independence and autonomy. With her Venus and Saturn in the 7th house she has strong needs for a committed relationship too,  yet she fears it as well, and that independent Uranus fights it tooth and nail. Venus oppose Uranus is like a push-pull in the love department. It's hard to satisfy both sides. Justin's Uranus happens to be close to the same degree as Jennifer's Uranus, so he basically triggers that dilemma inside of her. His Uranus opposes her Venus, which is usually a very hard aspect to navigate in a relationship. It tends to be a deal breaker for most people. The best way to deal with it is to allow each other to have a lot of space. It works well if one person works out of town a lot, or if there are frequent breaks. It does not work well between people who want a quiet, cozy routine home environment.  But then again, they work in Hollywood where they go to set for months at a time. Maybe this could work for them.  Maybe.

Jennifer also has her Moon in freedom loving Sagittarius.  Are you starting to see a theme here? She has issues about freedom and space and its hard for her to be tied down, despite what she says. People say that it was Brad that left her, but when someone has freedom/commitment issues, it doesn't matter who leaves who. Often the person who has freedom issues commits to someone who they know on a deeper unconscious level is not the right one, so they know they can 'escape' at some point.

His Moon is conjunct her North Node, and her Sun is conjunct his North Node. This speaks strongly to a past life involvement, as well as a strong support for them growing together in this lifetime.

Overall I'd say they have just as many positives as they do negatives, but I do wonder how that Uranus Venus aspect is going to manifest, as well as all that harsh Mars energy. I wish then well and I'm sure we'll see how this plays out in the media.

The astounding astrological symbolism in Vancouver (and other cities)

If you take most of the major historic and geographic points of interest in Vancouver, including Queen Elizabeth Park, the Burrard Street Bridge, Vancouver Lookout, Christ Church Cathedral, The Masonic Building, Science World, Olympic Village, Sun Tower, Stanley Park, Lions Gate Bridge, City Hall etc...and you pinpoint them all on a map, then you get this.

                                                 Image from

They create a circle divided into 36 equally spaced lines, all equidistant from one constant centre point - the Masonic Building.

The Ancient Egyptians recognized 36 constellations. They divided the year into 36 decans.  We still use decans, so each astrological sign has 3 decans in it.  So, each 3 lines on this map corresponds to one astrological sign.  It's really just a big astrological zodiac circle, much like you would read an astrological chart.

One of the 36 lines goes to the HR Macmillian Space centre, which has a Crab at the entrance, which of course symbolizes the sign of Cancer.

From there, you can go around the 'chart' and see what locations corresponds to what signs on this map. If Cancer is at that location, then The Sun Tower, which also lies at the end of another those 36 equidistant lines, but a little more north, would represent Taurus. The Sun Tower has an obelisk right in front of it in Victory Square, with the sign of Taurus right on the front of it.

The sign of Sagittarius on this map corresponds directly to the airport, and of course Sagittarius rules travel.  The sign of Scorpio corresponds to Iona Island and the sewage treatment plant, which is very Scorpionic indeed. Capricorn which rules ambition and career and prestige corresponds to the richest area in Vancouver called The Crescent in Shaugnessy area.   It's fascinating stuff.  One could go around find correlations for the whole zodiac this way. I'd like to go out to all of these places and see if there are any actual astrological and zodiacal symbols in the area.

The distance from the Masonic Building to the Lions at Lions Gate Bridge is 3.333 miles. In East Van there is a big famous Neon Cross. The distance from that to the Celtic Cross in Stanley Park is 3.033 miles, to the Vancouver Lookout is 3.33 miles, and to the obelisk in Victory Square 3.033 miles.  Distance from Masonic Centre to Queen Elizabeth Park is 3333 m. QE Park, which is the highest point in the city, aligns directly over 33rd Ave. There's a very precise astrological and mathematical grid in place in this city, as well as grids in TorontoNew YorkDenver and Phoenix.

Gold and Silver and the Economy fall/winter of 2015

I wrote a post last year about what to expect with the prices of Gold and Silver in 2014-2015 and how the market responds to the Jupiter Saturn cycle when it comes to stocks and precious metals. You can read it here.  We were hoping that Gold would rise in price as Jupiter entered Leo and was helped by that Uranus in Aries.  Unfortunately that Saturn dipping back into Scorpio in June has kept the lid on things regarding price. I think that Saturn also represents all the corrupt banksters that continue to manipulate the price of gold and silver. Pretty much everyone now knows that the markets are rigged, thanks to the internet. Saturn dipped back into Scorpio in June of 2015 and will leave Scorpio for good in mid-September 2015.  September is certainly a month to watch.

This continued depression of gold prices is validated by Mike Maloney's short video that came out today. It's a must-see if you're interested in where the price of gold and silver is going. He says, and has always said, that there will be a depressionary plunge in the value of gold before it takes off and goes sky high. Which is really what is happening now with Saturn back in Scorpio squaring the sign of Leo, the sign that rules Gold.  As I mentioned in my previous post, Saturn squares tend to keep prices low.

Saturn leaves Scorpio in mid-September, which takes the pressure off of the sign of Leo (gold). 

There's another reason Gold and Silver could move up this fall, and that's because the economy and the stock market could tumble with the Saturn Neptune square (precious metals are the first place people go to invest when the economy/market gets scary).  

Saturn and Neptune in hard aspect are the two planets that can represent markets crashing, or at least correcting.  They were in opposition in 2007, which is when the big crash really started, according to financial experts. It was technically called 'the bear market of '07-09' when the market averages drop was greater than 20%.  Back in the fall of 1998, Saturn and Neptune squared each other, and there was the Russian financial crisis.  It was huge, as the Ruble was devalued by 66%.  Back in October of 1989, Saturn and Neptune were conjunct, and we had the 'Friday the 13th mini-crash' caused by the failed leveraged buyout of United Airlines. These things always seem to happen in September or October oddly enough.

This fall, Saturn moves into Sagittarius and then is immediately within orb of squaring Neptune.  It squares it exactly in mid-November 2015. At the same time, Jupiter has moved into Virgo, and squares that Saturn by sign. These are double whammy indicators of a shaky economic market.

Now, as Mike Maloney has pointed out in his video, what has happened historically and what is likely to happen again, is that the price of precious metals will fall with the depressed stock market at the beginning, but then there will be a divergence. All of a sudden the price of gold and silver will start to move up quite quickly. I've given up on timing this really, since there are so many factors in play, but as I said before, this September to November are the months to watch for some changes to take place. 

If you've been doing your own research, then you know the stock market is way overdue for a huge correction.  All bubbles pop, as is the nature of bubbles. Its just a matter of when. This September also has the final eclipse of the Blood Moon Tetrad, as well as the Saturn shift into a new sign and squaring that Neptune, as well as Jupiter's shift into a new sign (August) and t-squaring the Saturn and Neptune signs.

Proof that your Thoughts Influence your Reality - the work of Dr. Masaru Emoto

Dr. Masaru Emoto was a Japanese Scientist who worked with water and water crystals and studied the effects that different water crystals had on the body.

He would freeze water, and then examine the frozen water crystals under a microscope. What he found was extraordinary.  He found that the water crystals that were frozen from water that had been exposed to loving and kind thoughts or words, took on beautiful symmetrical shapes.  Water that was exposed to unkind or rude thoughts or words created ugly, asymmetrical and broken shapes.

Water exposed to the words 'love and gratitude' looked like this:

Water exposed to the word 'appreciation' looked like this:

He also found that water exposed to beautiful classical music exhibited beautiful symmetrical patterns, but water exposed to heavy metal music became misshapen and ugly and broken.  He also collected samples of water from different parts of the world.  Below is a sample of the water crystals from the toxic water from Fujiwara Dam.  And beside it is the beautiful symmetrical crystal that was created after prayer over the water for one hour.

Dr. Emoto did the famous rice experiment where he had 2 containers of rice. On one he wrote 'you fool', and on the other he wrote 'thank you.' He than instructed school children to say the labels on the jars out loud everyday when they passed them by.  After 30 days the rice in the container with positive thoughts had barely changed, while the other was moldy and rotten.

You can do these experiments yourself with any kind of food and see what happens.

The human body is 97% water, so you can imagine what will happen if the human body is subjected to less-than -loving thoughts and words, and what miracles can also happen when the body is exposed to loving and kind thoughts.  He found that drinking water that has been exposed to loving and kind thoughts has the power to heal.  The words that carried the strongest positive energy he found were 'love and appreciation', as well as 'gratitude;.

He then went on to figure out exactly which kinds of music healed which kinds of ailments.  I have his book called 'Water Crystal Healing'.  In it he has two CDs of beautiful well-known classical songs, and with each song he shows the image of the actual crystal that is formed from the song music, as well as what physical maladies it cures. For example, the song La Mer by Claude Debussy gives relief from depression and motivation to move forward, as well as improving immune function.  It's beautiful to listen to.  Or, Swan Lake by Tchaikovsky gives relief from rigidity and obsession as well as smoother joint movement.  Fascinating stuff.

I write the words 'love and appreciation' on my glass water bottles and then drink the water from them, knowing that my body is receiving the benefits from all the loving and kind crystals inherent in the water.

So, remember to say kind and loving things to yourself.  It does a body good!

Here's a few of Emoto's most popular books:

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner

There have been multiple reports coming out lately saying that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are headed towards divorce, some of them saying it's due to his cheating. The kicker came when he was spotted up in Nova Scotia, Canada on Jennifer's birthday without wearing his wedding ring when he was supposed to be filming down in Oklahoma. Some sources say they are already secretly separated.

Their astrological charts should tell us whether this is a possibility in the near future - Uranus, the planet of separation would likely be somewhere in the mix by transit or progression for them.  Sometimes Saturn or Pluto is in there too.

I remember before Tom Cruise announced that he was divorcing Nicole Kidman, I saw that they had a strong Uranus transit hitting both of them at the same time, Uranus transits don't always mean divorce, although it frequently does, so  I was wondering how it was going to manifest for them. And then they announced it. Uranus at its most extreme. Both Tom and Nicole and Venus in Leo, and Uranus in Aquarius came up and opposed both of their Venuses (love planet) at roughly the same time.

So, what's going on with the charts of Ben and Jen

Ben and Jen both have Cancer rising, which gives them great affinity with the chart of the USA, a Cancer Sun.  Americans like them. I've also noticed that many foreign-born celebrities that found success in the US usually had strong Cancer in their chart, as that sign resonates with the American public.

Ben is extremely likeable and good-looking with his well placed Venus in Cancer right on his Asc.  Angelina Jolie has this same placement actually.

Ben is in the middle of Saturn squaring his Mars. That's the aspect of feeling thwarted. And in a man's chart this can be quite literal with Mars representing his sex drive, so if there was any cheating going on, Saturn won't let him get away with it.  Oftentimes Saturn is represented by the other committed partner, or the spouse. The timing of this aspect lends me to believe that Ben was cheating and that he got caught.

At the same time, transiting Mars is coming up to conjunct his Saturn.  Double whammy Mars Saturn.  He's not getting away with much these days.

Venus is just now going over Ben's South Node. Venus represents his love life, and the South Node is asking him to let something go. Something, habit or attitude that is no longer serving him.

Ben also has Saturn paralleling his Moon this June.  A parallel is like a conjunction, so in effect its bringing restriction, or sadness to his domestic life.

So, where's Uranus in all this?  Ben's progressed Uranus has come up to almost conjunct his Juno, the asteroid of marriage. That does not bode well.

Jennifer has wounded Chiron exactly squaring her Moon right now.  This is a painful transit where she's forced to confront and deal with some sort of painful experience that could also be triggering an event from her past. Her Moon represents not only her emotional life, but also her home life. This transit could also point to this cheating rumour being true, and that she is navigating through a very painful time in her life. The Moon is also her chart ruler, so this transiting aspect if affecting her whole life.

It's not over for her. Transiting Pluto is squaring her Chiron.  Pluto is in her 7th house of relationships, and is aspecting that wounded healer Chiron.  This aspect lasts all year for her. This aspect denotes deep pain, as well as deep healing....eventually. Someone is challenging her and she is forced to find new ways to deal with the situation.

Jennifer has Saturn opposing her love planet Venus all next year as well, which usually means some sort of sadness, loss or disappointment in one's love life.

So, let's check their wedding chart.  They were married June 29, 2005. This again stands as the birth chart of their married life together.  Uranus will come up and conjunct their wedding chart Moon, which is likely around 21 or 22 degrees of Aries. That's a huge deal-breaker.  Uranus is going to conjunct it next spring, so of they do separate now, that could be when the divorce is finalized.

They do have strong Saturn aspects between them, and Saturn cements relationships, even though it doesn't make them easy. Jen has Moon in lighthearted Gemini, and Ben has Moon in deep and intense Scorpio.  Not a good match there, since Moon signs are probably the most important aspect between people who live together. That Moon in Scorpio speaks to Ben's addiction problems.  He's a deep guy, probably deeper than people realize. Jen actually has 4 planets in Gemini - Saturn, Venus, Mars and Moon, so she's pretty optimistic and upbeat most of the time, along with her positive Aries Sun.  Jen actually has ZERO planets in water, whilst Ben has both Venus and Moon in water, making him more emotional than she is.

Jen's North Node lies in Ben's 8th house.  She's here to help him deal with his issues  -  or at least she shines the light on them which more or less pushes him in the right direction. Just by virtue of being herself, she's pushing him to confront his demons.  Ben's North Node falls in Jen's 7th house of relationships, which is a very good sign for marriage. He supports her in working out any of her issues around relationships.

They have some good aspects between them for sure, but also some very difficult ones, especially the Moon signs.  Her Moon,Venus and Mars all fall on his Saturn, which is a long-term kind of aspect, and which demands lots of patience and endurance to work through all the hard times. But also a very push and pull kind of aspect. It's a control issue here, and not a fun aspect to have between partners.

I'd say that yes, it looks like they are going through a huge traumatic event in their married life right now. Absolutely for sure. Based on that Uranus hitting their marriage moon next year, it's not looking good.

Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed

What can I say, this couple intrigues me for some reason.  It was just all so out of the blue, and fast ! I always thought Ian was an incredibly good looking and sexy guy. Perfect typing to play a vampire too with all his Scorpio!

 Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder just recently got hitched on April 26th of this year. Nikki was previously married to American Idol alum Paul MacDonald from October 2011 to March of 2014 when they split. They were engaged after just two months of dating.

Nikki and Ian began dating in July of 2014 and they got engaged in January, and then married this April. They were engaged after 6 months of dating.

Too soon? Too fast? I'm inclined to think so. There seems to be a pattern here of jumping into engagements and marriage without getting to know someone well. Unless there's another reason that's more business oriented that the public doesn't know about. I know many actors and actresses date and hire beards to hide the fact that they are gay from the public. I'm not saying this is true here, but its certainly a popular practice in Hollywood. Or, sometimes people in Hollywood get hitched just to boost each other's career in some way - it's a limited contract. Who knows what the reason is - these two may really be into each other and in the throes of passion and love. They certainly do like to broadcast it though - tons of instagram pics. Many gossip columnists call them 'thirsty.'  A new phrase to me, but I get it. They seem to really want the attention.

So, what's going on with their charts?

Below is a comparison of their charts. Ian's natal chart is the inside wheel, and Nikki's chart is the outside wheel. This way you can see which planets aspect what.

Right off the bat you can see that Nikki's Pluto conjuncts Ian's Venus and Uranus conjunction in Scorpio. Holy smokers....and I mean that literally! That is one super hot aspect between two people. Super sexual, super exciting and I can see why they're into each other. Yep - hot.

Ian's Venus Uranus conjunction in Scorpio makes him perfect to play unpredictable and sexy Damon Salvatore.  Venus conjunct Uranus in Scorpio makes Ian quite sexy and unpredictable himself. This aspect is not known for being the 'settling down' type of energy. They love their freedom, and they seem to dig the rollercoaster of excitement when it comes to love and romance. Ian is also a Sag, which is also a very freedom loving sign. This aspect between Nikki and Ian is more about lust and excitement than it is about love.

Nikki's Uranus Saturn conjunction in Capricorn squares Ian's Moon in Aries.  Ruh roh. We usually see Saturn aspects between couples who are married for a long time as Saturn is the cement that is needed to hold people together. But Saturn square Moon? That's a tough one to navigate, as the Moon person usually ends up feeling like the Saturn person is too controlling or that they just can't make them happy. Or Ian may feel like Nikki is more like his mother than his wife.

Then, Nikki's Uranus squares his Moon.  That's another aspect of excitement and unpredictability.  It can feel very addictive and exciting and erotic at the beginning of a relationship, but it's very unstable and does not bode well at all for a marriage. Uranus aspects can be very separative. I'd say this aspect between them could be a deal breaker right there. 

Nikki's Neptune in Capricorn also squares Ian's Moon. Wow, Ian's moon is really getting nailed. This is the same idea...its all romantic and dreamy at the beginning, but when reality sets in it can just feel like he never really knew her at all. Neptune can cloak things and put them in a lovely rose coloured light. Or, it could be that Ian has Nikki on a pedestal, which of course means she will fall off one day.

Ian's Venus in Scorpio could possibly be trine her Venus in Cancer...except we don't know Nikki's time of birth. Her Venus might be in Gemini, which would'n't be that great.

Ian's Uranus also squares Nikki's Mars. Another aspect of excitement and up and down energies.  Again, there seems to be a lot of that between them. Not a good aspect to have for a long-term union. The couples who do well with Uranus aspects are couples who can channel this separative energy in a positive way. For example, say if one of the couple was an airline pilot and was away from home for long periods of time. That could be symbolic of Uranus. Or, a couple who engaged in highly unusual and exciting activities together - that could channel Uranus. Aside from these cases though, harsh Uranus aspects tend to be extremely hard to deal with, as this separative energy has to come out somehow.

Nikki's Taurus planets do reside in Ian's 7th house of marriage, so that's good. I don't know if its enough though.

There's lots more between them, but I like to get to the nitty gritty of Saturn and Uranus and Pluto to see what's really going on.  I can see that they are in the throes of lust and passion right now, which is awesome, but taking one's time before getting married may be prudent with all that Uranus floating around. The Uranus excitement will wear off eventually and then they'll see if they are meant to be.
