Rebels, genius, beauty and balls
Well it’s here, right on time for revolutionary season, it’s Mars in Aquarius. Mars in Aquarius is a most enigmatic sign and yet, it is perhaps the most distilled expression of the Aquarian experience at large. Let’s try to understand this aspect and then zoom out to the world at large and examine it’s impact on our current milieu.
Astrology is a lot like math, painting and cooking. You add things up. Colors are mixed. Ingredients combined. It’s an art of synthesis that blends a multitude of elements together. It’s very much like being a DJ, who mixes beats, samples and loops. But being a DJ has it’s own inherent rules and so does astrology. If a DJ mixes beats at the wrong tempo, it’s called a “train wreck.” If a cook adds too much salt, no matter how expertly they’ve infused orange rind, sage and maple syrup, the over abundance of salt will kill the dish. All things in measure, all things according to the natural order of their structure must conform to the potential inherent in their relationship to one another. Does that make sense? Okay, let’s try some astro math.
Mars is action, will, focus, violence, passion, sex, blood, war, conflict, energy, drive and conviction. It is the cosmic expression of the male principle. Wherever your Mars is in your chart, that’s where you put your energy and how it is channeled. What sign it is in is how it’s colored and the tone of the expression. That is the same for any planet/sign config. Aquarius is the rebel. It’s the code breaker and the social de-stabilizer. It is almost always contrarian. I’m surprised I haven’t heard a rap rhyme yet that flows with “I’m an Aquarian, a contrarian, a meat-eating vegetarian, ” You get the drift. If there’s an opposing POV, Aquarius will take it on.

Centurion for hire.
The Earth game is a power game. No matter how you slice or dice it, the horizontal playing field is defined by resources, command and will. Now the cosmic game is a totally different set of parameters, and has very little to do with what’s happening in the 3D holographic theater. The two are not mutually exclusive, but in order to connect both Earth and Sky, one must be willing to sacrifice both. Not many understand this or know how to get there. But this isn’t about that dynamic per se. It’s about “The Earth Game” especially as it manifests in the life and chart of one, Jim Harbaugh, the embattled coach of the San Francisco 49ers.
While I was out in Boulder taping a segment with Regina Meredith for Open Minds on Gaiam TV., the national sports news was blasting stories about the growing discontent between The San Francisco 49ers coach, Jim Harbaugh and their young, CEO, Jed York. The Niners had just gotten their clocks cleaned by the their rivals from the north, The Seattle Seahawks, at home, on national TV, on Thanksgiving, This was the marquee, prime time game, after everyone was happily sedated, tryptophantic angels massaging frayed neurons, overtones of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, French vanilla, and chardonnay. The Niners were at home, in their brand new, totally wired, Silicon Valley stadium. A far cry from grungy and swampy confines of “The Stick” an aging testament to land fill and urban renewal that never renewed. Read the rest of this entry »

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 »

Taking the leap.
As we sat in the dark, waiting for “Interstellar” to begin, there were some interesting coming attractions. The first that caught my eye was the latest, robot-feel-good flick, “Chappie” directed by Neil Blokamp (District 9 and Elysium), which stars Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel and Die Antwoord’s , Yolandi Visser. Without knowing too much about “Chappie” the trailer plot (filled in by yours truly) seems to be about a robot who is rejected, turned out onto the streets and befriended by street people. Can you see the rejected people/robot trope? In the course of a three-minute trailer, you can also see Chappie get humanized and beloved by his fellow rejects. Then it looks like Chappie gets in trouble, leads some sort of rebellion, and does so heroically. Get ready for scores of films comin’ acha , where the robots will be more evolved, beloved and human than humans. Time to soften us up and accept the coming robot race.
Neil Blokamp is making a career out of augmentation, mutation and automation. In District 9, Blokamp takes us into a world where a human cop morphs into an alien thanks to the alien blasting the cop with its DNA.
District 9 is a reality play on racism and exclusionary culture wrapped in a Sci-Fi flick.
Matt Damon plays an augmented human in “Elysium” where he becomes a transhuman super soldier who is going to take on the 1%, living in an upper atmospheric utopia.
Now here comes “Chappie” and another, Dickensian take by Blokamp on anything other than a straight human.
Then there’s “Exodus: Gods and Kings” a far less passive take on Moses and the flight from Egypt. Ridley Scott directs, Christian Bale leads his people, blah, blah, blah. Read the rest of this entry »

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. Read the rest of this entry »
