Bear your own message.
Mercury Retrograde, upon us once again. It falls in the season of the water bearer. The water bearer is the message bearer, the bringer of news, change, waves of influence and even revolution. How does it impact you? On a mundane level, find out where Aquarius is on your chart/cusp and look at the degree, because this important during this MR as it starts out in the kingdom of air then it retreats into the elevated plateaus of Earth aka Capricorn.
For those of us engaged in the work of change, we might actually be considering a change of work, or at least how he we do it. This is a re-evaluation period or cycle for people involved in the healing arts, standing up for social causes or the power of personal empowerment.
The reverse course into Capricorn forces us to ask ourselves how well are we doing? Are we feeding others without feeding ourselves? Are our messages effective, powerful and in alignment with where we want to be? Are we in conflict with Aquarian ideals and the ability to be Capricornian managers of our work?
For those of you involved in other things, not associated with an Aquarian occupation, you can check in with where you are as it relates to the Capricornian forces in your life. Have you been considering a career or life work that has more meaning than just climbing the corporate ladder to a steady 401K? If you have, this might be your moment. Saturn in Sag re-affirms that you follow the correct, authentic and true path for you. In this case, an astrology reading/session might actually be really appropriate for you at this time and if that’s the case, you came to the right place. Use this code, “Parsifal” when you inquire about a reading and get $25 off the normal $125 fee for a reading. If you ever had any doubt about my magical powers and visionary abilities, here is a recent testimonial I had on Facebook, “Just had an amazing reading with Robert Phoenix! If you’re in need of insight I recommend Robert 100%.” Just sayin’.
As far as activism goes, on The Friday Farcast, I’ll be joined by Dave Parker and Alexandra May Hunter as we discuss “Free Energy” and “Chemtrails” respectively. Please join us. The Friday Farcast With Dave Parker and Alexandra May Hunter.

Tell me about your father.
Nothing is what it seems. Perhaps it never was. In the future lies our unclaimed memory for times that we have mistakenly forgotten. I used to hang out with a therapist a lot back in Oakland. He had secrets that I won’t reveal as he himself was a secret keeper, being the Gemini that he was. He did however tell me a few things about some of his clients, anonymous as they were. One of the aspects of psychotherapy that he had become more or less an expert on was ritual abuse. He worked with patients that had been part of a heinous cycle of familial-occult-practices, resulting in ritualized acts of deviance perpetrated upon them as children.
One of the common threads that ran through all of his clients was repressed memories that would later surface as adults, brought on by similar shock and trauma related to correlative events in their current life. These repressed memories have been at the heart of a number of very public cases, probably the most famous being the trial of the “Martin” (there’s that name again) daycare center. Keep in mind that it was children in the Martin case, who were recalling the horrors inflicted upon them.
In my friend’s work, these were adults accessing dark, childhood memories. I think it’s right about here where I am supposed to insert what I am going to talk about, so that you have the option to keep reading, since I know you all have busy lives.
Ahem. I am going to look at what happened in Paris at the offices of Charlie Hebdo on 1/7/15 through the astrological prism and I am going to connect it to a number of things, but primarily, the repressed memory syndrome on a collective level. Are you with me? Good. If you are, keep on reading. Read the rest of this entry »

It was my pleasure to return to the studios of Gaiam TV earlier in the month and speak with Regina Meredith about the astrology of 2015. We cover a lot of territory in sixty minutes, focusing on Saturn in Sagittarius, the Pluto in Scorp and Pluto in Sag kids, Jupiter in Leo and Virgo and the ominous dates between 3/13 and 3/20. Have a look and listen, free for seven days at Gaiam. You can watch the preview HERE.

Zero degrees Saturn in Sag, it’s here and it’s right on my ascendant. While I appreciate the fact that Saturn is no longer lurking like Moby Dick in my 12th House, I can feel the constraint and the restriction already.
Unfinished business hangs like a heavy yoke around my neck and I have to clean up to catch up. It’s Saturn, always Saturn, the damned infernal Satan of the chart.
Yes, there are days when I am more in accord with it, since I have it in it’s own sign, I understand it’s nature at a deep, conceptual level. It’s doesn’t mean I always agree or like it. But there’s no getting away from it. We always return to it’s karmic gravity, without fail.
I’m hunkered down at a Barnes and Noble, where there is a Starbucks, but only by name. They don’t take Starbucks gift cards or even sell them. The desserts and other Starbuckian goodies aren’t here either. So what the hell is this place? It’s not a Starbucks, so why even call it “Starbucks” just because they sell their non-fair trade, overpriced and over hyped coffee? And I don’t even really like Starbucks. I’m just here for the free wi-fi and that’s not even working. Hello Saturn in Sag, smack dab, ASC. But we’re all here, aren’t we?
My utter disdain for modern media grows with each passing day. I have to go through Yahoo’s home page and I can’t escape the emotional larceny they’re peddling on a daily basis. If they’re not running some sanctimonious, feel good story about being a Gay, married, celebrity, waiting on pins and needles for a test-tube baby, they’re throwing up a story about some young, black male, who was wasted by a white, racist cop. Don’t mind the details though. The kid had a gun, had just held up a liquor store, flashed away in a stolen car and fired on the cops after he crashed the car and they chased him on foot, in pursuit. Forget those nagging little details that are buried in the story–just let your eyeballs become inflamed by the social injustice, and move onto the next, 1500 word Psyop. That doesn’t mean that the “Po Po” are paragons of fairness and constraint–far from it. Read the rest of this entry »

Virgo Rising, Pisces Sun. Welcome to the new America
Well, I suppose we had to have the dramatic Pluto/Uranus square step in before I did part two of this. Well, that and I had a big baseball weekend for my son, so here we are looking int the future of the USA. One of the things that really jumped out at me from this chart is that early on in Obama’s first term, he made the proclamation that America will lead from behind. There were a lot of ways to interpret this declaration. His critics suggested he was weak and that intention would lead America to be bullied by any number of forces or nation states throughout the world. His supporters applauded the sentiment, having tired of wars in Iraq, and Afghanistan.
The embarrassment of Abu Ghraib and the ongoing defilement of human rights at Guantonomo. Bush’s Texas styled global justice and the “spreading of democracy” had left many Americans weary, shame riddled and powerless in the face of Neocon, full spectrum dominance, who were high off the 911 ritual, flush with cash and armed with Patriot Act, which gave them permission, to preemptively dec;are war without approval, spy on potential victims and torture without reprisal. The mood of the country was dark, depressed and hollowed out. The financial crisis of 2008 wasn’t just a material bankruptcy, Americans had been left with little hope and their emotional and spiritual bank accounts were equally drained.
When Obama came in and intoned that we would lead from behind, it was in many ways a sigh of relief. Leading from the front didn’t look that good anymore. The Virgo Ascendant reflects not only that sentiment, but it’s actuality. The Sag ascendant of the original chart, which has expansion as it’s energetic expression, has given way to a more conservative and service oriented nation. With this ascendant, the USA should not be in the business of spreading anything, let alone democracy. The thrust here is to serve and come to the aid of others. Healing is also an aspect of this ASC.
One could make a case that the latest foray into West Africa to deal and heal with Ebola could very well reflect this ascendant, if the intention is to actually heal, versus using it as a pretext for other covert acts and means. This can be seen with Leo in the 12th House. While Virgo on the ASC appears to the world as helpful and ready to meet the needs of those around them, Leo in 12th can indicate a very different agenda. Leo here is most certainly the power behind the humble front. Think of modern nobility, who have abdicated their formal rule in favor of the nation state, while still exerting control from behind the scenes, posing as mere figureheads. With this chart, it’s also interesting to note that Obama’s supposed Sun sits in the 12th House, which means that not only is he fully seen, but his own identity is a mystery, shrouded in the vast oceanic space of rumor, intrigue, controversy and his nebulous origin.

Enter Saturn in Sagittarius
Saturn in Scorpio moves steadily towards its final degrees. These are the critical degrees as planets, especially the transpersonal giants like Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto begin to shift into the next sign. The last degrees are volatile, explosive, catalytic and unstable. We are talking the 27th, 28th and 29th degrees, the latter also known as “The Anaretic Degree.”
On 3/11/11, The Daichi earthquake devastated the Fukushima nuclear power plant. Uranus was at 29 degrees in Pisces and Neptune at 28 Aquarius. Both aspects represent water (Pisces/Neptune) and uranium (Aquarius/Uranus). The volatility of those degrees was more than evident on that day. We’re talking cosmic wobble, matrix shifting, cultural and planetary tectonics.
Let’s go back to October, 2008, when “The Maverick” LOL, John McCain was theoretically running against Barack Obama. And just before the ballots were punched in November, the economy bottomed out. All of those nasty derivatives were like the China Syndrome, a full out meltdown to the core. Where was Pluto? 28 degrees. Critical. The degree shift can also herald the arrival of the new energy of the next sign. The meltdown was a harbinger of the titanic superstructures that would become Pluto in Capricorn.
On September 11th, 2012, radical Islamists raided the US embassy where four Americans were murdered, including Christopher Stevens. Saturn was at 27 degrees Libra. While the Benghazi affair was muted as much as possible, it did have a significant impact on Hilary Clinton, Scorpio, who left her Secretary of State position In February of 2013. Saturn was about to move into Scorpio.
During the final days of Saturn in Scorpio, Ferguson lays in charred and broken memories and dreams. Just as the energy of Saturn is not quite yet extinguished, neither are the flaming embers of what happened last week in Missouri and across the country. Read the rest of this entry »

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. Read the rest of this entry »
