Last week, me, Emily Moyer and Randy Maugans from Off Planet Radio got together and broke down Chiron in Aries and where it’s headed, personally, socially and galactic(ly).
As part of my application of Mercury Retrograde in all it’s finest, I’ll be posting a video a day from my youtube page with basic primers on every sign, so let’s get the party started with a little Aries 101.
The ghost of Stephen Paddock materializes in Atlantic City, flanked by Asian dolls at his elbows, the women match his dating profile. Like Elvis, a fixture in Vegas during his life and after his death, Paddock seems destined to haunt casinos, taunting digital sleuths. Much like Eliot Rodger who seemed to pop up almost immediately after the travesty of Santa Barbara.
Piscean Jason Aldean flows from Vegas to Rockefeller Plaza, opening for SNL, abducting the spirit of the late Tom Petty, staring straight into the camera, telling us all, “that he won’t back down.” Once he did that, he appropriated Petty’s song, and grabbed in a way that bordered on the banal. Who won’t we back down from? Mental illness? A phantasm patsy? Some middle-aged white guy that simply had enough?
SNL is a progressive incubator and the likes of Aldean rarely show up at 30 Rock, their brand Americana more suited CMT, than NBC, but this is the crossover moment, the moment that The Left seduces the Lite Right, the millennial edge that’s open to being swayed by tragedy, abdicating their so-called birth right of God, guns and country.
Aldean’s the pied piper, moving them, left of center. While he didn’t come right out and denounce the second amendment, that’s the re-frame that’s taking place.
Aldean has Chiron in Aries at 28 degrees and on the night of the shooting, transiting Uranus in Aries, was conjunct Aldean’s Chiron/South Node/Venus. This is the nature of Uranus. It happens suddenly, swiftly, like machine gun fire sprayed against the night sky, assassins cloaked in the guise of security, literally wearing the apparel of false flags.
Chiron is ruled by the god of conformity and duty (Saturn) and radical disruption (Uranus). The event in Las Vegas, primed to be a precursor of the coming revolution of masculine energy as Chiron shifts into Aries on 4/19 of 2018, marking Chiron’s return to the sign of the Ram, where it was last seen in 1969, making it’s annual seven-year-stay. Even before we can begin to determine what this new, male energy is, it’s being hijacked in a psychological operation, jumping the timeline, guiding the collective emotional signal.
Aldean, with his True Node at the end of Libra (26 degrees) will have Jupiter exactly conjuncting it in the next few days. Uranus of course will be occupying not just his South Node, but also the aforementioned Chrion in Aries. This a complex aspect taking place in Aldean’s life. Is he supposed to instantaneously become a bridge, the social equivalent of Libra’s scales, a symbol of balance between the left and the right? Or, is he being played by an anti-gun agenda with Uranus and Chiron, exploiting the weakness and vulnerability of his South Node? Already there is backlash coming at Aldean as he was supposed to open for Dana White’s MMA event(Aries/warriors) and White is pissed that Aldean ditched his commitment to open for SNL instead. In White’s own words, “He needs to stay out of Vegas.”
Aldean has Mercury in Aquarius at 27 degrees (also Mars in Aquarius at 14 degrees and Venus in Aries at 20 degrees), which was conjunct both transiting Moon in Aquarius, and the MC for the Vegas shooting. Its no coincidence that it was Aldean’s voice (Mercury) that was heard under the bap, bap, bap of machine gun fire, or at least a sonic facsimile, because, quite frankly, the gun shots raining down upon the concert aka the “Killing Field” likely weren’t the only ones, if they originated there at all. We’re talking boots on the ground. We’re talking “friendly fire.”
I recently came in possession of Stephen Paddock’s birth time. Born at 11:05 AM, in Clinton, Iowa, on April 9th, 1953, Paddock is an Aries, but now, with the time of birth, we also know that he’s a Cancer rising, with Sun/Venus in Aries in the 10th House. This aligns with the Aries/Aquarius symbols/energy throughout the charts of the moment and key players in the unfurling of this false flag.
DOUBLE YODS OF MYSTERY
Besides the obvious connection to Aries, guns, violence, the odd conjunction between Jason Aldean’s Venus at 20 Aries in conjunction with Paddock’s Sun at 19 Aries, are the two Yod’s that bisect Paddock’s chart like slices of enigma. A Yod is made up of two inconjuncts that are connected by a sextile. The inconjunct is a 150 degree aspect where two planets/planetoids/aspects are separated by 150 degrees and a two-degree orb max. The opposing planets/signs have nothing to do with one another. In this case, it’s Mercury in Pisces inconjunct with Pluto and Saturn/Neptune. The broken line of the inconjunct indicates the fuzzy path that’s laid out between the two points. Mercury here is also in the 9th House, which is travel. Mercury is the messenger of the gods and in the 9th House it gives us some clues about Paddock’s supposed activities as a pilot involved in any number of illicit and illegal sorties. One of Paddock’s pals was Geary Danley of Fayetteville, Arkansas. There have been hints that Danley and Paddock were connected to the Air CIA flights that originated in Mena, Arkansas. While this is still in the realm of speculation, it’s also part of the inconjunct between Mercury in the 9th (foreign travel) and Neptune/Saturn which is the fuzzy interface connecting that odd conjunction of authority/worldly structure (Saturn) and nebulousness/drugs (Neptune). The other side of the inconjunct is Pluto, which is intensity and the underworld. Mercury is both the focal point of one Yod while Neptune/Saturn the focal point of the other Yod.
Transiting Chiron in Pisces has been hovering over Paddock’s natal Mercury, which as we’ve seen before in Jason Aldean’s chart, is an aspect of vulnerability. Pisces is the Alpha and Omega of the chart, the sacred and profane. Over the past few months, it’s been triggering Paddock’s Yod. Did he become unstable? Or did he himself drop down some type of rabbit hole, as just another company construct and cut out popping up in Atlantic City? Running guns and drugs via his two private planes, one of which is registered in Virginia (CIA country), traveling to the Middle East on cruise ships with Marilou Danley, supposedly converting Islam?
Paddock is an enigma, a regular Joe who just played video poker down at the local bar. He and his gal got lattes at Starbucks. But he was also worth over $5 million with two planes and multiple properties. Understanding Stephen Paddock and what took place in Las Vegas can’t be solely accomplished by logical deduction. The inconjunct requires us to take leaps. We haven’t even dove into Rapiscan, Sheldon Adelson and Michael Chertoff, all of which is an after effect of what’s gone down in Vegas.
Four-years-ago, I rode Colin Kaepernick’s blazing comet across not just our lives, but also the inner sky in such a connected way, that I was able to predict, to the week, when he was going to start for the San Francisco, 49ers, and along with it, Alex Smith’s injury, which would facilitate the change. I also predicted that not only would Kaep start, but Alex Smith would never start again. It wasn’t rocket science.
Smith was going through his Saturn Return and he is a Taurus (May 7th). Kaepernick, is a Scorpio (November 3rd). Saturn’s transit, would impact both of them. With the Saturn return, opposite Smith’s Sun, he would suffer a concussion against the Rams. The Rams are Aries and Aries rules the head.
Smith had something to work out with his father through then coach, Jim Harbaugh. Smith’s father is a high school principal—a Saturnian character, an administrator, Capricornian. Alex Smith is the type of man, then a young man, who always played by the rules. He was an honor student and even graduated from Utah State early. He was the All-American boy, but he needed to reconcile the opposition between himself (The Sun) and his father (Saturn). Enter Jim Harbaugh.
Harbaugh took Smith under his wing when he moved up the Peninsula from Stanford to coach the Niners. Smith had been about as traumatized as he could have been as a football player. Being the solid Taurus, he endured the bizarre coaching of both Mike Nolan (Pisces) and Mike Singletary (Libra). Neither knew anything about the offensive side of the ball and both threw Smith under the bus when the quarterback was not only ineffective, but also injured. In Nolan’s case, he not only threw Smith under the bus, but also ran over him repeatedly, even questioning his toughness and manhood. Harbaugh, a former QB did everything he could to reinstate his QB’s confidence. It worked so well, that Smith even caddied for Harbaugh at the Crosby Open in Pebble Beach. Professional quarterbacks just don’t do that.
What makes this even more interesting (I hope you think it is) is that Harbaugh is a Capricorn, a living, breathing, agent of Saturn. He took on the role of Smith’s administrative father, setting the stage for Harbaugh’s ultimate betrayal and Smith’s, Saturn return, psychic integration and becoming a man.
On 11/11/12, Rams linebacker, Jo-Lonn Dunbar delivered a blow to Smith’s head. Concussed, he would have to leave the game and Colin Kaepernick, would replace him and Alex Smith would never start for the Niners again. It had nothing to do with his performance. Smith was one of the leading passers in the NFL that season and the year before was just one game away from taking the Niners to the Super Bowl and this is where it gets interesting. Harbaugh violated one of the cardinal rules of sports; You don’t lose your job to injury. Once Kaepernick stepped onto the turf, Alex Smith’s job was finished. Jim Harbaugh, the Capricornian, Saturnine figure, the paternal stand in, betrayed Alex Smith. This was the first part of Alex Smith’s Saturn Return. He would be traded the next season to Kansas City, where he would take the Chiefs to the playoffs, two years straight. This was the integration and individuation for Alex Smith, where he became a man, his own man.
Enter Colin Kaepernick.
While Saturn was opposing and challenging Smith, it was getting closer and closer to Scorpio, Colin Kaepernick’s Sun. He was about to be shot out of a cannon, and would take the NFL by storm, leading the Niners to the Super Bowl, where they would square off against Harbaugh’s brother, John in an epic game in New Orleans, where the lights would go off for thirty minutes, just after Beyonce’s strobe flashed ritual to Baal.
Kaepernick was “Maximus” and Harbaugh “Proximo,” two gladiators united once again in this lifetime. Unlike the solid, sturdy, Alex Smith, from your above-average, middle-class-family, Kaep was adopted. Born to a single mother in Milwaukee, he was given up for adoption (Moses/Superman myth) and raised by a Smith-like family in Turlock, California. 6’4, 235 pounds, tatted up and raging, Kaepernick quickly grabbed endorsement deals and had the NFL’s most popular jersey from 2012 to 2013, but his stay at the top was short lived, as Saturn would conjunct and move past his Sun and it would be Kaepernick who would have to go through his Saturn Return, in Sag.
His mentor, and father figure, Jim Harbaugh left, abandoned him due to Harbaugh’s ongoing struggle with the front office. The abandonment theme is one that had already been played out in Kaepernick’s life. During the 2013 pre-season, Kaepernick’s mother made the news, wanting to re-connect with the son she had given up for adoption. He not only rebuffed her, he used the energy of resentment to fuel his assault on the NFL. What Kaepernick failed to address, even if publicly, was there was another parent who abandoned him as well; his birth father. Ironically, this mirrors the situation of Danney Williams, the young man who claims that Bill Clinton is his father, but I digress. Just as Harbaugh played out the Saturnian role for Alex Smith, he did the same for Kaepernick, by leaving him.
While Harbaugh was busy turning Michigan back into a national power, Kaepernick was floundering under the comical coaching of Jim Tomsula (Aries) and getting hurt too.
Betrayal is a common theme throughout this story and it plays a role in who Colin Kaepernick was about to become.
In Summer of 2015, the Niners insanely talented but also unstable pass rushing phenom, Aldon Smith was finally let go from the team, this time for violating his parole, as Smith allegedly bashed in a car in the early morning hours. Something was amiss about the story and Smith was livid, telling the press that people would find out the truth. In our TMZ driven society, it didn’t take long at all, as the rumors began to fly that Smith had destroyed Kaepernick’s car for stealing his girlfriend, a young and very pretty radio personality named Vanessa Diab, aka “Nessa” Hot 97’s morning girl.
Diab is of Egyptian descent and is a Taurus (5/6/81 one day before Alex Smith, 5/7) with a super stellium in the sign of the bull (Sun/Mercury/Venus/Mars/Chiron), and her Sun in almost in exact opposition to Kaepernick’s and we all know in astrology, when it comes to men and women, opposites attract. Her Uranus in Scorpio (28 degrees) is conjunct Kaepernick’s Venus in Scorpio, at 29 degrees, adding a radical, trans-personal kick to his life. The conjunction also offers up a look at an unconventional connection, lovers separated by an entire continent.
Just for the record, Aldon Smith is a Libra and Kaepernick has Mars in Libra (more about this later for Kaepernick) and the two seemed destined for a clash over relationship as his South Node in Libra is conjunct Aldon Smith’s Sun in Libra. Interesting to note that two players, both named Smith, played a key role in Kaepernick’s time with the Niners and both were ruled by Venus (Taurus/Libra).
Aldon Smith was released and Kaepernick wound up having a season from Hell. His play was abysmal, he lost the locker room and then he got hurt. Subsequently, he lost his job to a Libra, Blaine Gabbert. Here, again, we can clearly see the Kryptonite of the South Node as it relates to the sign it is in.
While Kaepernick rehabbed in the summer, he began to change. His hair grew out, and he lost a considerable amount of weight. He also changed his diet, becoming a Vegan. It was clear that the influence of Diab, from his diet to his politics, was emerging, though we wouldn’t quite know to what extent just yet.
During the 2016 pre-season, during the third game, he was photographed sitting next to the Gatorade cooler during the national anthem. That’s how far he had fallen. It took people three games to notice. But when he was asked about it, he was opening up the doors of a revolution. We can clearly see this in his chart as transiting Uranus in Aries has been on his Moon (16 Aries) and Jupiter (22 Aries) in Aries since last year. The Moon in the chart is the mother, and in true, astro-sync fashion, his mother’s last name is “Russo” which translates into “red.”
Aries rules athletes and sports, especially football, which is the most war-like. Sag, rules the open spaces sports are played on, like Golf, Baseball, Football and Soccer. Kaepernick has a Saturn/Uranus conjunction in his chart in Sag, so he’s here to impact the mainstream through radical action. As he prepares to start once again for the Niners, this weekend as the Full Moon in Aries, will conjunct his natal, Balsamic Moon, and transiting Saturn conjuncts Natal Saturn, in some ways, Colin Kaepernick has come full circle, with his new father figure in the guise of Chip Kelly, a Sag, who has been supportive of Kaepernick from the moment he came into contact with him. Perhaps this is the karmic pivot for these two men, both of whom have had to struggle with public perceptions of who they are.
In Philadelphia, Kelly’s last coaching stop, he was accused of being a racist by some of his players and while Kelly still rostered Riley Cooper, a player that had blurted out some stupid words at a concert, captured on video, Kelly himself was never captured uttering a racist thought. The universe is an exercise in irony. Here’s Chip Kelly about to oversee the comeback of a player who has publicly challenged race relations and fairness, while become a viral firebrand. The man that was once, unfairly branded a racist in the “City of Brotherly Love” is now the steady hand that will guide one of America’s most controversial and hated athletes because of his position on race.
While I fervently support his right to protest, I think it’s missing the mark though it is supported in the mainstream media, because it is ultimately more correct politically than not. If Kaepernick was questioning the conventional narrative around 9/11 or the brutal practices of the Israelis on the Palestinians, I don’t think he’d be given the same respect he’s been accorded in the space of the mainstream media. Nor would Obama have been as eager to laud and support his stance either. Mars in Libra needs a cause, or else it can be passive aggressive and even a bit churlish. And with Uranus in Aries, spending most of the past year in opposition to his natal Mars, it’s charging and revolutionizing his outlook. As Jupiter in Libra begins its path towards conjuncting his natal Mars, I wouldn’t bet against him on the field.
As far as his relationship with Diab goes, her influence seems to have seeped deep into Kaepernick’s life, with his Venus at 29 Scorpio, dangling on the edge of the obsessive and transformational. Are they two young people being played and paid by Soros’ millions and through BLM or are they both working out their evolution of consciousness, both spiritually and politically, together?
With Kaepernick and his Sun/Pluto conjunction in Scorpio, it’s doubtful that we’ll ever truly know, but with a lack of Earth in his chart, Nessa and her Taurus Sun, opposite his, she is the grounding cord in his life.
All eyes will be on the gladiator that refused to bow before Caesar, this Sunday in Buffalo and for the NFL, no matter how controversial, it will be epic theater and all eyez will be on the adopted kid from Turlock.
As Mars hangs low in the celestial theater, closest to Earth as it’s been for the last eleven years, it’s also retrograde in Scorpio. Mars retrograde Scorpio, ruled by Pluto/Plutonium manifests in Obama’s trip to Hiroshima to revisit America’s nuclear holocaust on the people of Japan. Mars is moving backwards through time itself
The retrograde look at Mars/Wars (notice the inverted MW) includes of course Memorial Day, when we celebrate the bankers aggression against the people of the world and their bullshit, trumped up conflicts, grand and innocuous, from WWII to Guatemalan coups.
On Friday’s show, I’ll host author, Perry Ulander on the Friday FARcast. Perry is the author of “Walking Point: From The Ashes Of The Vietnam War.” I met Perry through my site as a client and he told me had a finished book about his experience in Nam, which surprisingly led to a spiritual awakening. I forwarded the manuscript to my friend Richard Grossinger, founder of North Atlantic Press. Richard loved the book and a year later, it’s out, distributed by Penguin/Random House. In a world where we often hear stories of failed dreams and disempowered lives, Perry’s book is not only an affirmation of the creative spirit, but a testament to fortitude and patience. Perry’s story is one of unique transcendence as the war that split a generation became a catalyst for healing and transformation. Don’t miss him.
MARS IS A BEAST THAT NEEDS BEFRIENDING
Mars in Scorpio is scary shit, especially since we’ve been flying the Mars in Sag flag, ragged and raised on the USA ascendant. Mars in Scorpio is a different beast and we’re revisiting our shadow, but this isn’t like any other time, the Scorpion Mars is a caged animal, panting, pacing, wanting to rip the throat out of convention and it’s lurking out there and in there. It will station maddeningly at 23 degrees for an agonizing three weeks, from June 19th, through July 12th. Remember 23 is the number of the curse, and just recently the Swiss held a ridiculous opening ceremony/ritual for a tunnel that’s 2300 meters deep.
There was also another recent more that went down at the Cincinnati Zoo that involved the death of a beloved and rare gorilla named “Harambe.”. The video is a mixture of touching emotion and harrowing physical activity. At times, Harambe seems very protective of the boy, and at others, he seems angry and slightly confused. Remember, this is four-hundred-pounds of wild instinct, even if held in captivity for a decade. After ten minutes, zoo authorities made the decision to shoot and kill him. This terrible event is indicative of Mars Scorpio retrograde.
Harambe’s instincts were natural and pure. He was assessing the situation and he knew that the child posed no threat whatsoever, however, the threat quickly emerged from his captors, whose instincts were not as natural or even remotely organic. The zoo itself is a repository of our caged and repressed wildness, on display in safe zones of ice-cream-cone-comfort. I avoid zoos like the plague.
This “socially justifiable” act for the “safety of the boy” whose mother was in utter fail, is symbolic of Mars’ retreat. In fact, if you watch the video, you’ll see Harambe hide the boy in the darkened corner of his airy pen, retreating into the shadows. This is the phase, and cycle we’re in and as cynicism rises, as paranoia grows,as angst expands and restlessness abounds, it triggers us, our past, the hang-ups, the defeats, the out and out obsessions and compulsions and it’s all roiling in the 12th House of the USA chart. That’s the collective spirit and a whole lot more.
Mars is the planet of the warrior, armies, and Scorpio is sex, death and rock and roll. It’s rattling the bones, and it’s essential that we go here now, to push into discomfort and face where we’re locked up, instinctually, facing sides of ourselves that we had left cowering in the corner of the gorilla exhibit of our lives.
The Sabian Symbol for Scorpio 23 is interesting; “After Having Heard An Inspired Individual Deliver His “Sermon On The Mount Crowds Are Returning Home.” This speaks to at the very least the sermons being delivered by the likes of Trump, Hilary and Bernie, whether or not they’re inspired is another topic altogether. This symbol contains the feeling of aftermath and what people do after they’ve been reached at a social level by a singular consciousness, which is actually an extension of their own thoughts, feelings and perceptions, an amalgam of their spirits bouncing back at them. This of course brings us to Trump
MARS VERSUS MARSDonald Trump is entering the danger zone. Transiting Mars in Scorpio is taking one more swipe at Trump’s natal Mars in Leo at 26 degrees. Starting Monday of next week, Trump could actually be in peril and if he manages to skate past any close calls, the space around him will be angry and violent and while this isn’t anything new, this cycle, which really lasts until July 30th, reaches new, scalding heights.
I haven’t been writing much lately and it’s because I’ve been extremely busy with clients and working on an astrological video series, called “The 11th House Academy.” We’re nearly finished and you can get a pre-order special that includes a ½ hour reading with me.
