(Astrology Explored) Tomorrow’s new moon eclipse will be in the zodiac sign of Scorpio. As we’ve seen with General Petraeus, there is a Pandora’s box of secrets and abuses of power waiting to get released. How is this going to affect you? The fly in the ointment is Uranus, the planet of the unexpected making a stress aspect (inconjunct) the Sun/Moon combinations threatening to blow up even the most well managed of situations.
Where the eclipse falls in your chart is the area in your life that will be sensitized for the next six months. Look in your chart to see where this eclipse is going to concentrate its energies.
If you don’t know your chart, then maybe its time to have a chat with your local astrologer.
Scorpio in the first, Uranus in the sixth house—While work is lucky for you right now, overdoing the late nights at the office bring on a round of sudden stress related illnesses. If you must work around the clock, at least eat healthy and get enough sleep. Continue reading

(Astrology Explored) What’s so unusual about a Washington extra-marital affair? Titillating the American public? Embarrassing an innocent spouse? Highlighting the after-hours antics of America’s men in power? Absolutely nothing. Mostly these things are fodder for the political spin cycle of one party trying to get one up on the other.
So what makes David Petraeus, a highly educated and highly decorated general, just formerly the head of the CIA, the latest sound bite in media reports?
It’s not that his mistress threatened another woman who was communicating with the general bringing in an FBI investigation. (Did she really think that if he cheated on his wife of 38 years, he wasn’t cheating on her too?) Continue reading
(Astrology Explored) Astrology for the week of November 9 to November 15
This the final week before the next Solar Eclipse, a kind of a wrap up of the previous six months. The moon moves from Virgo, to Libra, to Scorpio through this week, touching on material concerns, relationships and money, and other people’s resources. It is this week where we find ourselves depending on others instead of our individual selves, when we recognize that we are stronger as part of group than as a lone wolf. Venus in the relationship sign of Libra, urges you, if you feel you walk alone, to immerse yourself in activities that involving the sharing of yourself. Helping others will benefit in more ways than you know. Even before the holidays begin this is the time for sharing and caring.
Aries—The planet of individuality, Uranus, has recently moved into your sign. Have you noticed that your life is more erratic of late, that things keep cropping up that place more obstacles in your life? Aries is never afraid of a challenge, but this is a horse of different color. The problem is that you are unable or unwilling to recognize that your sense of independence runs counter to what is expected of you. Continue reading

Iardin du monde aupres de cité neufue,
Dans le chemin des montaignes cauees:
Sera saisi & plongé dans la Cuve,
Beuuant par force eaux soulphre enuenimees.

In the path of the hollow mountains:
It will be seized and plunged into the Tub,
Forced to drink waters poisoned by sulfur.
