It’s time for Pluto in Sag kids
As Saturn moves into Sagittarius, we’re starting to pick up signals already, as the Pluto in Sag children are beginning to make themselves known. Saira Blair, just 18, Cancer Sun (July 11th) was born with Pluto in Sag at 0 degrees retrograde, which is significant, since Miss Blair was not only recently elected to the West Virginia legislature, making her the youngest elected official in the USA, but also illustrates a return (retrograde) to more conservative values. With her True Node in Libra, she was elected during her nodal return. Balance, justice and equality are the elements that she will aspire towards. However, she will be tested over the course of the next five years as Saturn will oppose her Venus and Mars conjunction in Gemini. Saturn is the old guard in opposition to her Gemini youth. This could be a difficult phase for her as she will feel too old for her peers and too young for her colleagues. Then, when Saturn transits into Capricorn, it will oppose her Sun and Mercury in the sign of the crab. This will be the confrontation of institutional forces, the old guard again, the oligarchy confronting her conservative (Cancerian) values. With Jupiter in Capricorn will she allow herself to be bought and sold or will she buck the system?
Then there’s Jaden and Willow Smith’s now infamous interview where the talk about time travel, slowing down time, the dreariness and drudgery of school. This is what happens when you’re raised by a high priestess of Scientology, and a devoted follower of Pablo Coelho. Their ideas were interpreted by a university professor of philosophy. The results were quite interesting as he related their concepts to ideas by Descartes and Du Bois. While most of the world was scratching their heads, he was able to decode their obtuse abstractions. This will be one of the hallmarks of this generation as they evolve unusual theories and transformational philosophies. These are the kids of the big idea and as Blair has shown, also the big ideal. They’re just getting started.

Bill and Brian
Uranus has been doing a number on men if you haven’t noticed. One of my last posts focused on Adrian Peterson (Aries) and the disturbing details surrounding the excessive discipline he meted out for at least three of his young children. Peterson’s explanation for using a switch on his five-year-old was that, that was how he was disciplined, or was “given a whoopin’. The league suspended on the third week of the season and now, thanks to his very deep pockets and ace attorney, Rusty Hardin, Peterson basically pled out. What can usually take up to a year for a trial date, happened with an Aries-like alacrity.
For now Peterson has had his season officially ended, pending appeal, as NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has suspended Peeterson, without pay for the rest of the season and is forcing him into a therapeutic program. Here is the most astrologically relevant piece the things that Goodell said in his statement, as it relates back to Peterson’s Aries/First House Mercury in Aries 18 degrees first house along with the extremely rare and potent Aries Sun at 1 degree on the ASC, also at 1 degree. centric chart. Here is what he said; “When indicted, you acknowledged what you did but said that you would not ‘eliminate whooping my kids’ and defended your conduct in numerous published text messages to the child’s mother.” And Goodell added this; “You also said that you felt ‘very confident with my actions because I know my intent.’ These comments raise the serious concern that you do not fully appreciate the seriousness of your conduct, or even worse, that you may feel free to engage in similar conduct in the future.”
We are in a brave new world and the energy, actions and psyche of the male is on trial and very definitely in public view which leads to Bill Cosby.
We are witnessing perhaps the greatest fall of a public figure un recent, eclipsing that of Lance Armstrong’s tumble down from his peak of popularity. Bill Cosby was accused by actress, Barbara Bowman, for forcing himself upon her without her consent. The event had occurred over a decade ago, but Bowman added her voice to the list of at least another 12 women who had accused Cosby something similar. Cosby settled these claims out of court, usually supplying some form of monetary compensation in exchange for silence. Cosby either didn’t offer Bowman anything, it wasn’t enough or that Bowman was not going to be bought. This led to Cosby’s cancellation of a Letterman show appearance as well as other public appearances.
Bowman’s broadside was launched on the 13th, when Mars was in Capricorn, just two degrees off of Pluto, which is exactly conjunct Bill Cosby’s MC in Capricorn. This is a massive moment for Cosby, his career and his legacy. He’s had a long, successful and influential career, one of true, Capricornian ascent. Opposite his MC, down in his Fourth House, the Nadir of the chart lies his Sun, Mercury and Pluto. That’s the house of the home and family and Cancerian Cosby became synonymous family and became America’s dad during the 1980’s. His Pluto in the 4th is indicative in some ways of the transformation of the father and the family from the standard, White American family and father figure, to a Black American family/father. Pluto in Cosby’s 4th played a pivotal role providing the transformational boost, flipping the script from white to black.
The U.S. Sun is at 14 Cancer and the U.S. Mercury is at 25 Cancer. That would put Cosby’s Sun conjunct the U.S. Sun and his Mercury and Pluto conjunct the U.S. Mercury. These are powerful conjunctions, especially in Cosby’s 4th House, Cancer, sign of the USA. But now that Pluto and Mars have arced and stand in opposition to Cosby’s IC, the shadow of the man is revealed. Mars is sex and male energy. Capricorn is power. Pluto and transiting Mars are dramatically uncovering Cosby’s. Adding yet another Plutonian layer, one that is truly fascinating Cosby’s Pluto in Cancer at 28 is exactly opposite the US Pluto, also at 28. Again, this underscores the deep process of cultural transformation via Pluto. Ironically, it appears that “The Coz” will assume the role of cultural change agent, although in this instance, it comes through the destruction of the previous identity, which was the “Black Father Knows Best” to “Father Does Worst.” However, Cosby is far from alone in this disingenuous projection of morality, patience and kindness of the archetypal, American. T.V. Dad.
In early October, Stephen Collins, America’s first father of faith and family, star of The WB’s “Seventh Heaven,” confessed to having sex with an underage girl and exposing himself to another in 1972. Collins is likely a member of one of the thirteen Illuminati families as revealed by Cisco Pike, in Fritz Springmeier’s “Bloodlines Of The Illuminati.”. His great, great Grandfather was General James Baird Weaver, a member of Populist Party. Weaver ran for president in 1892. Collins is a true “Blue Blood” having grown up in Hastings-on-Hudson, and graduating from Amherst, cum laude. One of the sordid themes that’s exposed in Pike and Springmeier’s book is that the children of these families are often abused and traumatized. Like Cosby, Collins is a cardinal sign, Libra, October 1st, 1947.
Cosby has other dramatic transits taking place, including Uranus in Aries transiting his 12th House. This is active disturbance emanating from the deep zone of the house of mystery. Note that Uranus was squaring Mars in Capricorn at the time of Bowman’s revelations. Another fall out of transiting Uranus in the 12th, was Cosby’s ill advised move of challenging the Twitterverse to create memes of him. The collective gratuitously obliged as thousands of Cosby rape memes exploded like buckshot across the world wide web. These memes can be a form of cybernetic voodoo.
Lastly, Saturn, just recently passed over Cosby’s Mars in Scorpio at the rim of the 7th House. Whenever Saturn crosses any planet, it forces the planet to undergo a reset. As it does, the psychic component of the planet/sign is released under the pressure of Saturn, and the accumulated encoding of the planet/sign, thirty years of history is revealed and dealt with, so that there can be a new beginning start of planet and sign. This isn’t always an easy condition and process. Saturn brings with it a type of reckoning, think of the Aeon of the major arcana. In essence, Saturn triggered a karmic release of how Cosby used, for better or worse his Mars/Male energy, under the powerful influence of Scorpio, lord of the underworld. As Saturn moves forward, it’s going to descend into Cosby’s 8th House, with Sag as the ruler. Sag is the ruler of law, philosophy and colleges amongst other definitions. Cosby might lose one of his earned or honorary degrees as a result. He’ll also seek legal help from behind the scenes as well, something he appears to have done in the past.
This is the complex chart of a man going through an extreme crisis, as his identity gets disassembled, his reputation called into question and his legacy tarnished. America loves a comeback story, but he will have great difficulty unless he is willing to be annihilated by Pluto.
While “The Coz” is being dragged through the virtual town square, Brian Bosworth aka “The Boz” has willingly stripped down and exposed his bare psyche on ESPN’s, “30 For 30, Brian And The Boz”documentary, which looks back on Brian Bosworth’s wild days as a linebacker at Oklahoma University, where he transformed into “The Boz.” The Boz was part, pro-wrestling villain, and Johnny Rotten meets Vanilla Ice. During his stay at OU, he was a popular as any player in any sport, college or pro.
The documentary begins with Bosworth and his son in a storage unit, where his he kept all of his clippings, trophies, medals and newspaper articles. Bosworth’s personal memorabilia, act as historical ciphers, which catapult him into his pain filled past. As he shuffles through his ruffled and faded history, he recalls events and memories of his father, whose unrelenting push for perfection ultimately wound creating is essence, a trauma split in Bosworth. And while it’s not as sordid and grisly as much more intentional versions of trauma based conditioning, it nonetheless resulted in a dual persona which he marketed to the hilt. We can see this clearly in his ascendant.
Brian Bosworth is a Pisces Sun, Gemini Rising with a Gemini Moon. His North Node is also in Gemini, submerged in his 12th House, which is ironic, since he seemed to love the spotlight, which he did, with Saturn, Venus, Sun and Mercury, all in the 10th House, the first three in Pisces, and Mercury in Aries. His Mercury is at the same degree 1, as Adrian Peterson’s Sun and ASC. Peterson and Bosworth are also both Sooners.
The Boz has an extremely complex chart with a mystic rectangle and packed 4th. 10th, and 12th houses. You can see the father’s influence on the MC via Saturn, the stern taskmaster of the zodiac. Then there’s the Sun in 10th as well.
The Boz has Sun opposite Pluto and Uranus., which can be challenging to say the least. These are mythic energies, titans. And when they are conjoined like they are here, straining against the identity in malleable Pisces, there is a tug of war inside Brian Bosworth between “The Boz” and his the father that never praised his efforts or celebrated his achievements.
By the time Bosworth got to OU, “The Boz” was ready to spring into full effect. From the punk pompadour, multiple earrings, gang bandana; “The Boz” looked every bit wrestling rock star, on the field, he played like a special-forces commando, a prelude of the coming super soldier. While at OU, Bosworth suffered a shoulder injury, which led him to use steroids to speed his recovery. The only problem was that he didn’t stop. An intense regimen of weight training and anabolic steroids was the finishing touches to the creation of Bosworth’s Frankensteinian alter ego. Mars, sextile Uraus, trine Jupiter, he used Uranian, experimental methods, to enhance his Mars and expand (Jupiter) his performance. But the more that Brian Bosworth hit the needle and the iron, the bigger “The Boz” got. Again, with his Gemini ASC, Bosworth was more than able to assume a double identity. In some ways, he needed it.
Bosworth was suspended by the NCAA for violation of steroid use in the 1986/87 season and paraded around the Orange Bowl sidelines wearing a shirt that said, “National Communists Against Athletes” which was a play on NCAA, college football’s governing body.
Bosworth’s 4th House is a mass of tangled influence, confused cross-purpose and a painful contortion towards some type of purity and redemption. Pluto, Uranus, POF and Mars are all conjunct in Venus, from 12-18. That’s the home of Brian Bosworth. That’s where he grew up with the martial influence of his father, unrelenting in his non-stop drive to illicit perfection in his son. In the 10th House, ruled by Pisces, his Sun, Venus and Saturn rise to the collective in the guise of “The Boz.” It’s where he did drugs (Steroids) to enhance his almost cartoon-like persona. Saturn on the MC is the NCAA, his coach at OU and his father, the forces of order and authority that would shape him and that he would eventually rebel against. Saturn rules the entire skeletal structure and after just two seasons, playing for the Seattle Seahawks, Bosworth retired due to his shoulders failing. A doctor said that at 24 years-old, he had the shoulders of a 60 year old man. With his South Node in Sag in the 6th House, athletics and sports would impact his health. Now on the clever side of Brian Bosworth, he called out Denver QB, John Elway before the Seahawks game with the Broncos. Ten thousand Bronco fans wore “Ban The Boz!” t-shirts, that they paid $15.00 for. Little did they know that Bosworth’s t-shirt company printed and sold the shirts to the unsuspecting Bronco fans. That’s the clever NN in the 12th House.
Over the course of the 30 For 30 documentary, Bosworth goes through a grieving process in front of his teenaged son, each trophy, t-shirt. newspaper clipping sparking memory, loss, regret and the emotional lurch towards some kind of reconciliation with his past and “The Boz.”
So why am I writing about Adrian Peterson, Bill Cosby and Brian Bosworth? Because Uranus in Aries is forcing men to deal with their masculinity as normal patterns of relating and emoting are disrupted, broken and hacked.
For Adrian Peterson it’s the beguiling realization that actually did something that went above and beyond merely correcting bad behavior. BTW, Aries, rarely if ever apologize and it’s clear that Peterson, even in the face of a year-long suspension, can barely show any contrition.
For Bill Cosby, he’s having to deal with the ghosts of his past, moneyed privilege and a hidden yet powerful network of influence and support. And now he’s fending off a new accuser a day as Janice Dickinson, the former super model claims she was drugged and molested by Cosby when she was in her thirties. Cosby is dealing with the deceptive and errant use of the phallus. One of my readers suggests that he might be headed towards a Jimmy Saville type of demise, but only to be alive and a witness to it. At one time, Cosby was partner in a music label called, “Tetragrammaton.”
Brian Bosworth, now living in Austin and in the oil and gas field (typical Pisces) comes to some sort of reconciliation with his past and how he male energy and alter ego were out of control and he does it with his son as a witness. There’s something powerful and sad, simultaneously as he does his best to show his son what not to do. The filming of the documentary took place when transiting Saturn was going through his 5th House of children, passions, hobbies, loves and past times. Fairly appropriate.
Bosworth went on to be a direct-to-video actor, acting in over a dozen films since the mid-eighties, his latest being a Christian, end times flick, “Revelation Road” where he plays a nasty, non-believing, biker. Saturn will be moving into his 6th House (Sag) at the end of December, where he may go deeper and become more committed to his faith.
In my own life, I’ve been dealing with Saturn going through the last degrees of Scorpio in my 12th House. It’s been a blessing and a wound. I haven’t been writing much because I’ve been so busy teaching astrology in my 12th House mystery school. But Saturn’s transit through the 12th marks the summoning and reckoning of my past thirty years. It’s been no picnic, especially in the latter degrees as Saturn flashes with intensity, the last fiery embers before it shifts into Sag. Scorpio is death and Saturn brings the law. Much like “The Boz” I have been doing my own grieving as well, being hit with the intensity of loss that I stuffed as deep as I could. As the final degrees unwind, I feel like I’m moving closer to the moment, getting in synch with real time, watching my phantoms and demons rise to the surface.”
I suppose we’re all dying in some ways, and as we move forward, every pass of every major transit seems to go deeper, cut wider, burn more and push harder. Our awareness and pain manifests in mutuality, as we are aware of how close to the bone we’re all living. Social networks become the central nerve center of the planet as our own bio grids extend into real and cyber space. The collective field of awareness is about to go to the next stage of transpersonal story with the arrival of Saturn in Sag come Christmas Eve.
But until then here’s a little of Led Zeppelin for the final degrees of Saturn in Scorpio.

A Mutant Strain Of Awakening
No matter what I do, I keep returning to Chiron. The big sexy is the Pluto/Uranus square, which has been doing the planet like Dirk Diggler did Amber Waves in Boogie Nights. But it’s Chiron in Pisces which has cast it’s beguiling, if not mind numbing spell over the planet.
In my private practice where I consult people and read their charts for them, most of my clients are people with Chiron in Pisces (1961-1969) and they are trying their damnedest to understand what they are going through, while gently penetrating their mystery of their own experience, the limits of faith and the geometry of possibility in a world that seems to offer less and less of this with each passing day. Chiron in Pisces denotes extreme sensitivity and I can assure you that these good people can feel the walls of this dimension closing in on them, while they sense the space outside of these four walls, defined by the monolith of Mecca’s Kabaa, the black-hypercube of our eternal imprisonment and exile in this seemingly godless dimension.
During one of my sessions with a student, I was explaining the evolutionary cycles of the 12 Houses and I was moving from the 11th to the 12th Houses and breaking down the potential of the 11th House as it relates to free energy, the end of work, enlightened, group consciousness and the dawning that we are all one; from every perplexing microbe and vexing sociopath, to the wonders of the natural kingdom, the elements of creation and the courage of the human heart. Once we begin to live with this realization of consciousness, we are on the cusp of the 12th House, signifying the end of our human journey on this world.
Ironically, we are technically moving from the Piscean Age, to the Aquarian Age, or at least that’s what our planetary custodians are intending for us, and I can assure you, that their version of the Aquarian Age is anything but egalitarian; Think a more homoerotic version of Soviet ruled communism, with a Social Democratic aka Fascistic topper, and a double shot of corporate control. But I am getting ahead of myself. I’m here to talk about things like Formaldahyde in the water supply of “developing” nations (do they ever really develop?), wherein the mixture apparently produces symptoms in people that look a whole lot like Ebola. Do the math; Water is Pisces. Formaldahyde is the contaminant. It creates a wound in the water. Speaking of Neptune, Pisces and Chiro, Masaharu Emoto, on cue, has exited the world stage. He’s taken that graceful dive into the great cosmic ocean of the 12th House. Emoto was born on July 22nd, on the 29th degree of Cancer (water) and he returned again and again to it’s message as the source of spirit which nurtures all of us.
Serums and vaccines are also Piscean in nature via their fluid distribution and many of them are dispensed in hospitals (12th House institution) and we are and have been witnessing their impact on the health of people all across the planet. Go back four years and return to the hype and fear surrounding cervical cancer (sexual transmission) and how via the HPV vaccine young girls could guard against cancer invading their most sacred space. Well that worked out well, didn’t it? A number of young women suffered from bouts of catatonia, depression, narcolepsy and confusion. I could go on.
In West Africa, the locals are telling anyone who will listen that the people getting sick are the ones getting a vaccination. The Red Cross is the pusher and they want them out.
Meanwhile, back in the states, Thomas Eric Duncan lands in Dallas and officially becomes “Patient Zero.” Wearing a kick-ass, lime green pullover, Duncan supposedly died on 10/8, the day of the Super-Duper Blood Moon, but likely, in reality, he died on 10/5, which is not as cool and super sexy as dying on a Babylonian holiday. But then, was Thomas Eric Duncan even real? Reports are that he worked for the Peace Corps, and later for Bank of America in Liberia. Rumor has it, that he was worth over one million dollars. He would fall into the category of “crisis actor” and it would seem that we are witnessing another Sandy Hook, or LA Airport, or Elliot Rodger (remember him?). If that’s the case, then what about Amber Vinson and Nina Phan, the two nurses who have supposedly contracted Ebola from being in close contact with Duncan? Are they part of the production or are they really sick? If so, what are they sick from? Is it Ebola or something else?
Off the coast of Belize (Pisces/Neptune) another Dallas nurse is on a cruise ship, placing herself in a self-monitored quarantine. I suppose the CDC said it was okay, just like Amber Vinson’s trip to Cleveland on Frontier Air. The CDC gave her the green light to go. Is it standard practice for nurses to go on vacation right after a potential carrier of the modern plague has been in their care? I wasn’t aware of this unique relaxation protocol offered to nurses, excuse me HEALTH CARE WORKERS after coming into contact with terminal plague victims. I must say, I like the idea, but the execution needs a little work. Allowing them to do it with the general public doesn’t seem like the safest strategy. But what do I know? Speaking of which . . . .
Just yesterday, Thomas Frieden, head of the CDC, went before Congress and testified that “You cannot get Ebola by riding public transit and yet, if you are exhibiting Ebola-like symptoms, you cannot ride public transit because you could spread Ebola. Huh? Run that past me again? That was one, slick, Orwellian mind fuck. When people hear that, they ask themselves what the hell is going on? The double speak of spellbinding has their heads twisted in knots. We’re supposed to trust and rely on Frieden and the convolution coming out of his mouth is enough to make us crazy and perhaps that’s the plan. Remember, the CDC, Texas Presbetyterian State Health and the NIH are all hospitals, 12th House domains and with Chiron, we can see something is very wrong and deeply wounded coming out of these hidden realms of institutionalized medicine. And it all really got rolling on that Blood Moon, the day Thomas Eric Duncan supposedly died
It was the Moon that Christians love—The Blood Moon—the pale and swollen orb that hangs low in the night sky—pure rapture porn. This Moon’s bloody aura was highlighted by its position in Aries. The Aries Moon is hot, passionate and willful. In this dance between the Libran Sun which wants balance, harmony, symmetry, and accord and the Aries Moon, which wants what it wants and wants it now, there is a creative and dynamic tension, one that starts in heated opposition and ends in shared perspective, common ground and hopefully, hot sex. That was the headline for this explosive dynamic in the interpersonal realm. And, what’s interesting about this dance is the impact that Libra has on all of us. You don’t have to have the Sun or Rising or Venus in Libra. You see Libra rules ALL relationships, so the Sun/Moon opposition impacts us all, regardless of our signs, since we are all engaged in relationships and personal contracts, so this Moon illuminates the state of those unions and agreements. But there is more—much more. Let’s return to The Rapture shall we?
It’s all lining up now; wars, plagues and droughts. The only thing that’s missing (for now) is pestilence and hunger. With the backdrop of Ebola (blood disease), the Blood Moon took on an even more, symbolic meaning. This Blood Moon and eclipse fell on The Feast Of The Tabernacles aka Sukkot. This particular feast is an important one for the Jewish people. This feast is a reminder of their deliverance from Egypt. It was also during this feast that Solomon’s Temple, one of the most important structures in the Freemasonic mythos was consecrated. When the temple was destroyed, it was rebuilt and finished during “The Feast.” In some circles, it is said, that this was also the time of the true birthday of Jesus, though I think that 9/11 is more likely.
Don’t think that this auspicious Moon isn’t going unnoticed by people who keep an eye on these things. As we review Blood Moons of the past we can see some interesting events emerge. On the Blood Moon of December 3rd, 2013, Ebola broke out in West Africa. In 2014, on February, Russia moved into Ukraine. Most recently, on June 3rd, Israel started it’s crushing offensive on the Palestinian people.
These events have specific significance for the likes of the dispensationalist Christian prophets of our time; John Hagee, Pat Robertson, Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland, et al, all preach from the pages of the Scofield Reference Bible.
Cyrus Scofield (1843—1921) was a lawyer (that should tell you everything) and he had a pretty serious drinking problem, and abandoned his family, forcing his wife to divorce him. Scofield eventually went through a religious conversion of the charismatic variety, thanks to a fellow barrister. He re-married and was born-again. His version of the bible focuses mainly on Genesis and Revelation, with a heavy emphasis on Revelation. Scofield’s bible is the most influential since the King James version. By the start of WWII, his bible had sold over two-million-copies.
One of the key commentaries in the SRB is the notion that Israel needs to be intact as one country, divined by God and given to his chosen people so that the Second Coming could be initiated and the children of Israel would be given one, last opportunity to repent before the gaze of an avenging Christ. If they would not, then God’s wrath would rain down upon them. Of course all the good Christians would be shuttled out of harms way via the rapture. Down below, on Earth, Revelation would unfold and the scourges of the final judgment would be unleashed upon mankind. And right on cue, it is reported that Thomas Eric Duncan died from Ebola (a blood disease) on The Blood Moon. This makes for some juicy, prophetic speculation, but in the underground news world, it was reported that Duncan had passed on Sunday night, early Monday morning and while this is disturbing, in and of itself, it doesn’t have the fear porn factor of crossing over on the eclipsed, Blood Moon and yet, it is supposedly happening, according to the signs that conform to Scofield’s end times script.
We are nearly at the mid-point with Chiron’s journey through Pisces. I have been looking at Chiron in Pisces for a while and it’s one of the major drivers of the meta-reality we’re in. Nothing is as it seems. Jetliners disappear over the South Indian ocean without a trace, only to reappear in a death spiral over Eastern Ukraine. Guys named Jihadi John slice heads for fun and games, all the while sporting perfectly creased execution garb while captured on high-def video, and it’s more reminiscent of a studio set than a desert death pit. Neptune rules all things hopeful and illusory. It is crystalline faith and the crush of delusion all at once.
And so it is with the Thomas Eric Duncan’s passing, which is more illusory mind warp, conforming to the Blood Moon cycle and the hyper-charged revelation program.
While Wikipedia paints a mostly positive and sober, if abridged version of Scofield, the reformer, there are dirty, dirty details to his life, the work of the SRB and the symbolic ramifications are both startling and strange.
One of Scofield’s benefactors, a key promoter in his cliff noted version of the bible, was one George Bannerman Dealy, a 33rd degree Freemason from Dallas. Yes, that same Dallas, where JFK was murdered, in of course, Dealy Plaza. Dallas is just below the 33rd degree parallel. Another one of Scofield’s handlers and benefactors was Lyman Stewart, president of Union Oil and founder of “Biola” University. There were four others, including John J. Ingalls. They called themselves “The Secret Six” and they were all high ranking Freemasons. Scofield would eventually wind up as the minister of The First Congregational Church of Dallas (there’s that city again) where he would fall under the spell of the writings of John Nelson Darby, who was the founder of the “Any Moment Now” school of rapture doctrine. Darby’s ideas would play a large role in Scofield’s annotated bible.
Scofield’s first version of his bible was printed in 1909, when Chiron was in Aquarius. The revised and final copy was printed in 1917, when Chiron was in Pisces. It’s this version of the bible, which is widely in use today.
Perhaps this is not so off topic, but a few weeks back, just before the Ebolamania was about to hit, I was watching Oliver Stone’s, “On Any Given Sunday” his football movie, where he luxuriates in his love of Roman spectacle and large, sweaty men, with anger issues. His pre-game speech to the team, just before their big finale against the DALLAS KNIGHTS is a classic. It’s a compendium of all late Pacino; Devil’s Advocate, Scent Of A Woman, Glen Garry, Glen Ross, a guy at the edge of existence, laughing in the face of the devil, cursing at God. It’s great speech actually, pure Oliver Stone overwriting, but Pacino is the guy that delivers it. The walls of the locker room are splashed with odd, illuminated symbols like an All Seeing Eye atop a pyramid with a flaming sword. The symbol also appears at mid-field. At one point the camera flashes to the symbol on the wall behind Pacino, then it cuts to LL Cool J’s character, who is wearing the number 33, the number of The Sovereign Grand General Inspector. Then the camera cut to Jamie Fox’s character, wearing the number 13, the number of death.
Stone’s symbols on the locker room wall and Knight uniforms gave the film this surreal Templar effect, with of course, Dallas as the backdrop of it all, where JFK was murdered. Stone, the JFK’ophile was reminding us on a subliminal level of Dallas, resting just below the 33rd degree, where on Dealy plaza, named after a 33rd degree Freemason, history, life and time changed forever.
Movies are interesting, especially their timing and placement. They are classically a Piscean art form. The theater is the ritual space that takes place apart from the world, where symbols, archetypes and even inter-dimensional life forms, all fueled by human emotion is cast upon an external screen of our minds. The theater space is a twelfth house location. Film itself is a gelatinous amalgamation of petroleum, an element of Pisces viscous fluidity, stopped down and frozen in time. The timing of certain films or television shows cannot be overlooked, especially in times of a planetary crisis.
For instance, Brad Pitt’s latest movie, “Fury” takes us back to WWII. It happened to be released when both Uranus in Aries (War) and Neptune in Pisces (Film) were both retrograde, so going back into time would be an appropriate set of aspects for a WWII film. Pitt is always good for a cipher read on the times we’re in—so is his partner in crime, Angie Jolie. Pitt plays “War Daddy”, a commander of a tank battalion, caught behind enemy lines. It’s a classic look back that extols the heroism and courage displayed by Americans during the “Great War” which 99% of Americans sign off on without any critical or second thought. While it cements the “official story” of WWII, it also serves as a back drop to the current battle against ISIS/ISIL/IS which translates into America fights the good fight in the face of tyranny, regardless of the odds. In essence, it’s timely propaganda, dressed up in a nostalgic narrative of real men, heroes, and acts of courage from another time.
In an era where the most courageous, white male on the planet manifests as an unabashed cross-dresser or metro-homo-sexual who comes out in the face of so-called social pressure, we have to travel back into time, where Pitt’s testosterone and machismo can exist without the blight of censure or criticism and yet, this version of will and courage are readily summoned in the service of supporting the general spirit of war in our time. War Daddy is a ghost slave conjured up for the marketing of the global death machine driven by the military industrial complex.
Over on TCM, Ted Turner, globalist kingpin’s movie channel, they have inexplicably been showing films that have Black/African themes, just as the first wave of so-called Ebola was breaking. One week, it’s “Zulu Dawn” a classic film from the 60’s, where the English suffered their worst military defeat of all time at the hands of 60,000 Zulu warriors. The next week, it was “Blacula” a truly underrated film starring the great stage actor, William Marshall in the title role. Marshall plays an African prince of sorts, who was infected by a Vampire’s blood, thousands of years ago in Egypt. So in the short course of a week, TCM has managed to run a film about Africans overrunning the fragile outposts of White civilization and a Black African transmitting a virulent blood disease that turns people into the undead.
Timing as they say, is everything.
Meanwhile, under Jupiter in Leo, we have “The Royals” (Leo) and “The Giants” (Jupiter) facing off in the world series–tt should be a good one. Ironically, both teams have a guy named Cain that plays for them. Nothing like a little, biblical sub-narrative, even though Matt Cain is injured and won’t be playing.
So just to wrap up this uber-long and long overdue post, do your very best to stay cool, calm and collected. Know that the cosmic ritual of the changing of the ages is upon us. Stay strong, stay together, stay free.

I am ready to take on a new group of students for the Fall of 2014. I’m offering five, ninety-minute-sessions, where you will learn everything you need to know about how to look at a chart and begin to break it down and you’ll learn them one-on-one with me, on your schedule, your pace.
Here is a testimonial from a recent student;
“It was during my first reading with Robert that I asked about a course of study with him. His astrological perspective had brought amazing new insights about myself and the world around me. I wanted to learn more. Robert is extremely knowledgeable, patient, responsive, and broad-minded. He has a contagious enthusiasm for astrology, and is always practicing. During our classes, he divided the broad field of astrology into manageable sections so I could grasp it. It is as if he set up the structure of a library for me in my mind, and now, I can add to the shelves on my own, following my own specific interests. I especially appreciated the individualized nature of his mentoring.
I also appreciated the case studies, the characters that he was able to describe based on his vast experience. He could immediately answer any questions I had. The quizzes were great too, as they allowed me to have some practice at giving readings. I am profoundly grateful for the course I had with Robert. Comprehending “the why” of things has always been of paramount importance to me. Approaching the understanding of people and events in my life through astrology has been one of the greatest things that has ever happened to me, and has made me able to be more tolerant and less reactive.
Another great benefit is being able to help others by explaining their own personalities and struggles. I now have a growing practice in this area. I would recommend Robert’s course to anyone hoping to make use of astrology to improve their own life and the lives of others.”(Rev. Dr. Kimberly Kidd)
We’ll also break your chart down together in our last session. Send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org or CLICK TO FIND OUT MORE AND GET STARTED.

Peterson’s Pater Sins
The giant, Red Eye, swiveled and locked in on Adrian Peterson this past week. Peterson, was born on 3/21/85. That’s just one degree off the astrological new -year, aka Aries 1. It’s one of the most powerful degrees of the zodiac. Its pure, undifferentiated will. If you have ever seen Peterson run with a football, you’ll see that degree clearly in action. He is the unstoppable force that very few unmovable objects have been able to deter. He bounced back from a devastating knee injury in record time to run the football almost further than anyone else in one season. And up until last year, Peterson had managed to avoid many of the pitfalls that other players had descended into. There has never been any talk of drugs, recreational or performance based around AP. He was never caught with any guns at the airport. He wasn’t doing tequila shots off stripper’s booties on a lake cruise like some of his former teammates. In essence, AP was pretty clean—until last year.
In the middle of the season, Peterson left the team to attend the funeral of his son. On the surface, this sounds tragic, and it was, but not for the obvious reasons. The boy was just two and had never met Peterson. In fact, he had just recently found out that it was his son; thanks to a paternity test he had to take. The circumstances surrounding the boy’s death are cloudy and charges have been filed, but what we do know, is that there was serious neglect. That death, attending the funeral of a child he never knew and had just recently became aware of was just the first step in Peterson’s strange and very public odyssey.
Just one degree off of his potent Aries Sun is his Moon in Aries at 3 degrees. This is a vital stat. He was born to athlete parents. His father was a gifted basketball player and his mother a state champion track star. And they stayed together, so Peterson was not the product of a broken home, in fact with the Sun/Moon conjunction, at that tight of a degree, it would indicate a closeness between the mother and father and Aries is the sign of the athlete, so we have both mother and father checking in as budding sports stars. However, his father’s hoops dreams were shot down when a gun (Aries) discharged into his thigh, shattering muscle, nerve and bone. When AP was just seven, he witnessed his brother get killed on his bicycle by a drunk driver. He overcame this tragedy by becoming a star, youth football player, coached by his father. And then his father got messed up in a dirty little coke and not just the super tight Sun/Moon conjunction, but also Mercury/Venus in Aries mark money-laundering deal.
Peterson’s chart as well (18 and 20 respectively). And, as we are about see, a very telling conjunction with Black Moon Lilith at 21 degrees Aries with Venus at 20. Adrian Peterson also known as “All Day” by his teammates apparently has at least three separate mothers with at least three different children. When asked about this in the past, Peterson has been cagey, evasive and not that forthcoming, The BML conjunction with Venus would indicate that the shadow of these relationships and women would surface at some point and the unveiling might be quite dark. Enter Uranus. With Uranus in Aries at 15 degrees, it would classify as a classic conjunction with Mercury, Venus and yes, BML. And as it moves backwards, it would have a revelatory impact on Peterson and his life, especially via the media, social or otherwise.
Last week it was revealed that Peterson had punished his five-year-old son so severely (a whoopin as he calls them) that the boy had lacerations and welts all over his lower torso, including his testicles. The pictures were released to the media and once that happened, Peterson was indicted in Texas on charges of child abuse and child endangerment. The photos by law, were not supposed to be released, but here we go again, with the veil between public and private thins beyond our ability to control it. And here is where it gets tricky. I don’t agree with Peterson did, and perhaps such a glaring spotlight is the one thing that might stop his unconscious violence and abuse, because, quite frankly, Peterson was just reenacting the punishment that he received at the hands of his parents, from the velocity of a wooden whip and who knows where this started? Perhaps darkly, in the plowed over fields of a forgotten plantation, but I digress.
Two days after the Vikings had suspended Peterson, they lost, getting their asses kicked, 30-7, the reinstated him. It’s clear that they missed Peterson, who was not just their best player, but also the face of the franchise. It was clearly and crassly and economic move. But it didn’t sit well with sponsors as Raddison pulled their local sponsorship deal with the team. Then governor of Minnesota chimed in and didn’t think he should play. So 24 hours after bringing him back, he’s suspended again. And right on the heels of that, more allegations hit the wire. Mother number three had texts and pics from AP that showed yet another child with injuries. Peterson had disciplined the child in the car. Here is what the texts read. “What happened to his head?” the boy’s mother asked in a text message, according to the report.
Peterson: “Hit his head on the car seat.”
Mother: “How does that happen, he got a whoopin in the car?”
Peterson: “I felt so bad. “But he did it his self.”
Sometimes astrology just has its way. Mercury was in Libra, opposing Peterson’s Mercury/Venus/BML when all of this started. And with Uranus kicking in as well, as part of the transit, this shit was going to come out. And speaking of BML, while Peterson has dodged questions about mothers, paternity and children with as much deft as he’s eluded 250LB men trying to bring him down, it’s come out that he has at least 7 children with 7 different mothers.
There is a special interest group that is starting a petition to keep him from his son and perhaps other children.
Let’s face it, if he was a bus driver for Greyhound, nobody would know and wouldn’t care, but he’s just the latest in the NFL’s high profile blotter sheet, run out in front of the public, the latest sex crime perp paraded out for our condescending shakes of our heads and even worse, bitter words of condemnation and even hate. The saddest part? Peterson isn’t even aware of his transgressions. He admits to everything and is standing by that this was how he was raised. But we also can’t look the other way when we see seven kids with seven mothers, one of which has already died.
It’s like a train wreck of epic proportion in America’s unchecked and unabated love affair with sports, icons, heroes and institutional enabling. Other than his home fried whoopins, Peterson was passed along and feted from school-to-school, team-to-team. That, along with a whole lotta male chi/Aries planets and Peterson is all energy, action and dissemination and we have a man that is acting purely on his instinct and energy with not a lot of conscious awareness of the results it seems. He’s also got a lot of cash, which helps these things along on many levels, but affording a child doesn’t equate with good parenting and it seems as though Peterson has sort of a rotating tour of sorts with his kids.
This is nothing new. The late, Derrick Thomas had eight different children with various mothers. Antonio Cromartie (another Aries) has had twelve different kids with eight different mothers. He finally married Terricka Cason, a TV reality starlet and they’ve had two kids, with twins on the way. So, you can see, there’s an alternative lifestyle here, not unlike BB King or Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, both of whom make Peterson look like a monk of sorts.
Getting back to astrology, Peterson is going through his Saturn Return (of course it’s Scorpio). He’s dealing with how he uses his Scorpionic powers (sex, violence, anger, whoopins legacy) while society Saturn is now doing it’s best to restrain him. Man, does this open up a cultural Pandora’s box or what?
Peterson is now the image of the Mandingo gone rogue, fuckin’ and whoopin’ without regard to consequence or safety. And his owners (yes, the Vikings own his contract) wanted his ass back on the plantation, that was until the owners, owners stepped in and disapproved.
Now the White House is getting involved in all of this NFL messy house cleaning and of course that’s never good thing, because at this point, they’re just Al Sharpton with a much higher security clearance.
In a lot of ways I feel for Adrian Peterson, the boy that was subjected to those whoopins, the young boy who saw his brother die before his eyes and watched his father go to jail. He’s a byproduct of all of that and he needs to stop before he hurts one of those children—for their sake and his. And it’s unfortunate that it’s the public, the Eye Of Horus (now you know what it means) that is the one that sees all and judges all summarily through the collective aggregation of guilt, anger, special interest, Twitter and cell phones. But ironically, it’s not getting us any closer. We’re not asking uncomfortable questions about ethnicity, double and triple standards, genetic memory and the whole notion of the family in the 21st century. All we’ll get is headlines, 140 characters of noise and virtual judgment.
Ironically, Peterson was born in Palestine, Texas and as many of us know, Palestine (the other one) is ground zero for the violence and abuse of children.
Bless the beasts and the children.

Posted by: admin in Aquarius, Astrology, Sports, tags: Harvey Levin, Janay Palmer, NFL, Ray Rice, Roger Goodell, Super, TMZ, Uranus In Aries
The social conscience has devolved into the electronic eye of reckoning. There is no longer any privacy and one’s words and deeds, whether good, bad, indifferent or misguided are used as ample evidence to judge them, with the holy arbiter being the collective morality of the Vox Populi, which delivers it’s crushing sentences devoid of any context or nuance, with a chilling efficiency that the Bolsheviks and their ideological descendants would be both envious and quite proud of.
Yes, that’s where we are. The Pisces Super Moon blurred the edges and distinctions of reality and our judgmental hold over it.
By now, most people have heard of Ray Rice and seen the TMZ video of him knocking out his then fiancée and now wife, Janay Rice. This has opened up a ripe can of worms in the realm of social media and the role it plays in defining truth and judgment. By the way, for as long as I’ve been shopping, I’ve never seen a can of worms on the shelf of a grocery store, but as a metaphor, it works, since we all have that imaginary can or worms in our heads.
This is a fairly complicated issue that has a number of layers, especially on the astrological tip, so let’s try to shine a light through the Neptunian fog.
The NFL’s current struggles began when Uranus entered into Aries. Almost concurrently, a group of former players filed a law suit against the league for damages sustained to their brains from concussions suffered on a continuous basis during their playing days. Guys like Dave Duerson and Junior Seau killed themselves because of the unending hell they were in due to a scarred brain that was causing not just mental degeneration, but also severe depression. Aries is the head and it also represents war/warriors and their modern-day-equivalent, athletes. Uranus is shocking, disruptive and electric. It transforms through swift action and judgment. The ultimate goal of Uranus is liberation from static forms of consciousness that have become entrenched or fixed. It starts as chaos and ends in reformation.; Ab Ordo Chao. And while this is a seemingly natural process, it’s also one of the most manipulated when it comes to astrological dynamics; See Aquarius, dark manifestations.
The latest, Uranus in Aries explosion that involves the NFL is the Ray Rice incident. Rice by the way is an Aquarius (1/22/87). He has Sun at 1 degree Aqua, with Mercury at 7 degrees Aqua, conjuncting it. The Sun/Merc conjunction, especially in Aquarius denotes intelligence, an individual he thinks for himself and is known for using his mind. Now Rice does have Mars in Aries at 8 degrees. It’s conjunct with his True Node in Aries at 15. He is a warrior. However, Uranus at 15, was right on his True Node yesterday, opposite his South Node in Libra. Libra is partnerships and relationships and with Uranus exactly on his TN, opposing his South Node, well, Ray was going to go through something along these lines. Aries is the head and he hit Janay, square in the head, knocking her out.
Uranus is social media. It’s TMZ and Twitter. It’s the read and react of our current network of information, chatter, squawk and noise. And with video cameras in place, the all-seeing, electronic eye, the synthetic conscience of humanities digital soul is everywhere. No longer are we judged within the confines of our own consciousness, with our own God, but out there, by equally flawed and judgmental others. This is the Eye of Horus, the all seeing eye of judgment, now cast upon us.
Calculated and cool, TMZ released the full version of the Rice, elevator video, just one day after the NFL’s opening weekend for the 2014 season. Once the tape was released the narrative wasn’t about the season, but about Ray Rice, Roger Goodell and whether or not Goodell and the Ravens were aware of the full-length video before suspending Rice for two games. Rice had entered into a pre-trial, interdiction program and was sentenced to counseling and therapy. He and Janay wed, and even had a child in the interim. Life went on and then the TMZ media scud missile exploded.
TMZ was born out of a merger between AOL and Telepictures, the parent company who produced “The People’s Court” amongst many other shows. debuted on 11/8/05, making it a Scorpio entity, as it probes like a paparazzo sentinel, burrowing through the underworld, expurgating muck and mire, the oozing spectacle of society and the dark navel that we are gazing into. TMZ is run by Harvey Levin, an openly gay crusader, who has specialized in this sort of thing for many years now. Harvey was the legal counsel on The Peoples Court, which was the first, modern step in trying and convicting people in the court of public opinion. On a side note, I actually met and knew the creator of The Peoples Court. He was a fine man, classically educated and erudite. I don’t think he ever had any intention of this virtual court infesting our lives the way that it has metastasized before our very eyes.
While the Rice drama is getting cooked up, Bruce Levinson, owner of the Atlanta Hawks, along with G.M. Danny Ferry, are being accused of being racists. Levinson had a memo that was released to the press where he was trying how to get more “white” fans into Hawks games. Levinson was almost immediately forced to sell his shares of the team. Danny Ferry supposedly said that Luol Deng, “Still has some African in him.” We saw what happened with Donald Sterling.
Codes of conduct, speech and thought control are being mediated and implemented. Somewhere in the backs of our minds we are policing our own thoughts and feelings, wondering who or what will be offended, to what extent and how it might impact us, especially if we are in the public eye. This sort of self-policing is a result of the panoptical society where we are all observed and observe one another. We become our own jailers and wardens in an increasingly restrictive net of social modification and control.
Roger (which means “to fuck”) Good (God) Ell (Elite/Saturn) is right on the cusp of Aquarius/Pisces. The Pisces Super Moon was right on Goodell’s Venus in Pisces, illuminating the messy diffusion, the lack of boundaries and blurred lines of communication between the league, it’s media partners, the justice system and the public. Goodell has Jupiter in Sag at 0 degrees and Mars, in restless and peripatetic Gemini, at 3 degrees. The Mars/Jupiter opposition has manifested as a disaster in Goodell’s punishment policies. He has been accused of being too hard on players and hits, fining the likes of James Harrison, hundred of thousands of dollars for rough play. At times, his verdicts have appeared as arbitrary reaches, creating an uneasy sense of boundaries when it comes to tackling and hitting. There have been times over the past two seasons, where players didn’t know what was a legal or non-legal play, and yet had to pay for their errors of judgment.
As it relates to the Rice case, Goodell suspended Rice for two games. Just before the season started, he admitted that he didn’t punish Rice enough and that there would be a zero tolerance rule when it came to domestic abuse moving forward. That was just days before TMZ released the elevator video. Jupiter judged and Mars brought the fractal chaos. This is inherent in Goodell’s chart. Even now, he is saying that while Ray Rice was indefinitely suspended, there is a chance for him to play in the NFL again. Jupiter, meet Mars.
So after reading all of this, you might say; “So what, I don’t care about sports.” That’s not really the point. The point is, is that we are being conditioned, entranced and entrained to rush to judgment, cast aspersions and condemn in the court of public opinion, under the gaze of the all seeing electric eye, God’s virtual doppelganger and synthetic over soul. But don’t trust me—you be the judge. . . .

The Axiom Of Choice
Mercury has just entered Libra and oh what a fine, balancing act it is. Libra is the way station between Virgo and Scorpio. On the one side, Virgo represents order and control. Have you ever met a Virgo that doesn’t like being out of control? Oh, I forgot, Charlie Sheen is a Virgo, but is Charlie Sheen even Charlie Sheen anymore? I digress, just slightly. Virgo’s embrace of chaos is done out of the need to create order, which is essential to it’s operating system. On the other side of Libra is Scorpio, which isn’t anything like Virgo, save a need for control (for different reasons).
Scorpio will never shirk from a challenge or temptation as it’s seduced by the lure of not just the thing or the act itself, but the power of death, rebirth and transformation. It may want to control people or events at a superficial level, since it is a fixed sign, but really, the journey is anything but safe and predictable for Scorpio. And then there’s Libra.
Libra sits in the center between the two and hence the balance and the scales. One side rests Virgo and the rational function, on the other, Scorpio and the irrational immersion into obliteration. Libra is the mediator between the two, staking its turf with one foot in one world and one in the other. Libra’s relationship with beauty leads it closer to the Scorpionic caverns of the underworld. The ability to pull back and objectify the experience tilts the scales back in Virgo’s direction and the need to manage the impending chaos and loss of self that will follow the plunge into the nether regions.
This is the agonizing chaos of Libra’s axis mundi and the desperate need to achieve balance between the two. Of all the signs, this is why Libra often has the most difficulty in committing to something. Commitment threatens their precious, precarious, balance.
This gets played out intensely with Mercury in Libra and the playground of the mind. During a collective phase of Mercury in Libra, we deal with levels of temptation. It can be as simple as agonizing over that Tequila Lime cheesecake with coconut crust versus simply stepping away from the table.
That’s Mercury in Libra on a mundane level. On a higher, more complex plane, the temptations get more intense. The stakes are higher. How does Mercury in Libra reconcile it? Why make art of course! That’s usually the best course of action and for Mercury in Libra art can be anything from a conversation to a canvas. It’s that wide.
So, on a collective level., we’re feeling the push and pull, the sweet tug into the crackling fires of Scorpio, and the occasional restraint coming in the other direction of Virgo. Libra can be the most moral and immoral sign there is and sometimes it occupies the same being. Crowley was a Libra and we see the Western Godfather of sex magic, the veritable beast himself. And yet, his desire for magic and knowledge was to destroy the mindless and numbing conformity of not just religion but the institutions of the state, such as school and government, which reduces a person to at best, a number and a statistic. This is what fueled Crowley. He saw the immorality of the system itself and the reduction of the human. So he took a moral stance and flipped it inside out. This is the basic premise of Satanism by the way and on the surface, it’s a very sound argument. However, the methods used to achieve personal liberation are far darker than the street version that’s peddled.
Virgo is pure and virtuous. Scorpio is lustful and degraded. In Libra we are faced with the cardinal function of will. Opposite Aries, Libra well knows what the consequences are. And Mercury is psychic amplifier.
On the plus side, Mercury in Libra does offer us the ability to see how the other feels. Notice I said “see” and not “feel” because we’re dealing with the approximation of emotion. Mercury is the mind and Libra is air, so it creates movies, scenes in the mind of how it must or could feel. By doing so, it evokes a type of kindness based on protocol. From a mental perspective it sees how the other is or will be treated and then it has to make a judgment. JUDGMENT. In many ways, that’s where we are now.; Days of judgment, moments of choice. Don’t underestimate them.
But it’s not all a test for one’s soul, oh no. Mercury in Libra can be positively peaceful and dedicated to social harmony and with a world that seems more and more un-hinged, you can stake your claim for the next few weeks and become a diplomat for the race itself. Open some doors for people, let them slide into your lane without a honk or a dirty look. If someone says something a little nasty, take the high road and leave them with a compliment. We can always look to William Blake for a little inspiration, so from “The Proverbs Of Hell” I give you this; “Damn braces, bless relaxes.” Mercury in Libra is much better at blessing than damning. You be the judge.
