#Astrology and #Election2020

(Astrology Explored Blog) Democrats, after the defeat of 2016, are suffering a bit of PTSD over the electoral map. Though polls in 2016 saw Secretary Clinton leading, and pundits forecasted a win, the electoral map came up much different from than seasoned prognosticators expected. Below is the electoral map at the final total. Continue reading

(Astrology Explored Blog) Venus, the goddess of love and money, moved into the Virgo Suite of the Zodiac Hotel on October 3rd, and ever since, there’s been trouble. I got this message from one of my friends on Facebook:

Friend: So is it the stars that are making me feel so off-kilter?

Me: Venus in Virgo—so neurotic!

Friend: Exactly how it feels.

But perception isn’t always reality, so I decided to visit Venus and ask her what’s up.

Beth: (Knock, knock)

The #Astrology of Anaretic Degrees

(Astrology Explored) Why Is The 29º Of A Planet (the anaretic degree) considered More Than All The Other degrees?

Mercury is retrograde which is my excuse. I have bunches of good astrology articles on Quora that aren’t getting as much love as they should and the WordPress phone app makes it easy to post, so I’m sharing a few here.

Astrologer Anthony Picco asked me the above question on Quora, and pleased as punch I answered it straight away.

Astrologers consider 29 degrees of any sign an anaretic, or critical degree. Actually, there is a broad list of critical degrees, and not just the number 29.

Here is a list critical degrees I got from Cafe Astrology:

Classic critical degrees are as follows:

0, 13, and 26 degrees of the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn)

8-9 and 21-22 degrees of fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius); and

4 and 17 degrees of mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces).

And then there are 29 degrees which also seems significant. But why? Continue reading

Astrology, Conspiracy Theories, & Calling Them Out

Astrology has enough of a credibility problem. This is why I despise, yes, despise, when an astrologer uses his or her platform to promote conspiracy theories.

Recently, at the above mentioned Facebook group, I called out one such conspiracy theory where the admin promoted Rudy Giuliani’s “October Surprise” that Hunter Biden left his laptop for repair and surprise, surprise there is all sorts incriminating evidence proving the corruption of Hunter and his father. The New York Post had picked up and printed the story.

(Astrology Explored) Shockingly, the FBI and the Attorney General of Michigan announced 13 arrests in a conspiracy to kidnap and murder Governor Gretchen Whitmer. The men arrested belong to the militia group Wolverine Watchmen.

The extensive investigation, court documents showed, relied on confidential informants, undercover agents, recorded conversations, text messages and social media, with federal agents detailing what it called a plan to violently overthrow the government, which included a conspiracy to kidnap the governor, take her to Wisconsin and put her on trial for “treason.”

Trump Health Downturn?

(Astrology Explored)

As a forensic astrology technique, I often put the event chart in the center and the person’s chart in the outer ring. The Sun, according to Rex Bills in The Rulership Book represents the President, along with the 10th house and the zodiac sign Leo. Trump’s Chiron, “the planet of something wrong,” and Trump’s Jupiter (the king) sits on the ascendant of the event chart. The ascendant is dawn, the first rays of the sun shining at the beginning of the day. Trump’s Neptune (the planet of infections) buries itself further into the twelfth house of secrets. It is in opposition to the day’s Chiron in the sixth house of health. Chiron is in Aries, which is ruled by the planet Mars, the planet of trouble. The president is, indeed, “not out of the woods.”
