Upcoming Aspects for Nov 26th & 27th 2018

Guest article by Dave from AmorStyleAstrology.com.

I used AstroMap to look ahead to see if I could find an energetically concentrated period of time in the immediate future. The time that jumped out at me was November 26th & 27th. It looks like we’re in for a storm of news building towards that point in time.

As always, my summary is followed by my analysis. And, for the full article, please see my website AmorStyleAstrology.com.



Working up to the 26th and 27th of November, we have an energetic situation that is building for leaders around the world. This situation should play out in the media or through channels of mass communication. Whatever is discussed will seem like a big deal, or, there will simply be an abundance of it. The influential areas are legal and judicial, suggesting that the greater population will get to follow more activities that are aligned with arrests, or indictments or subpoenas or lawyers arguing points and whatnot.

The situation is expected to be emotionally impacting for the source of the fight comes from a water sign. There are strong ties to socialistic philosophies, but in an agitated way. The activities may seem explosive and abusive and they will strike at the heart of the cultural identities of the groups in conflict.

Think of the next couple weeks as the unfolding of a legal drama that is played out over the airwaves. Expect well known figureheads come fourth and make declarations and then back it up with subpoenas and indictments. This energy comes from a place of protecting freedom at all costs. Or doing anything that the leader can do to protect freedom using judicial actions and mass media. Expect press conferences where heads of organizations use the law to make forceful statements.

And it’s not just one event, but it’s a number. It’s like the energy has aligned to setup a collection of events that unfold all at the same time. Come the end of November, the general public will probably be tired of hearing announcement after announcement and they will wonder about the state of things. Wonder about the culture and the impact these announcements will have on it. There will be an accompanying feeling to fight, but it might be expressed through crying or turning off the TV so as to try to escape what is unfolding.


The planetary hotspot looks to be southern California for the Sun Jupiter Mercury conjunction. This could indicate that that litigation could be about the fires in California or the election in Arizona. Nevada can also come into play. Because Mercury is in play, we want to think about this as being intellectual and news travels fast.

The point of contention for Saturn is sitting over Florida hinting that there could be lots of restrictions or blockages in that area. Also, the contention point for Pluto is just sitting off the coast south of New York or just off Washington DC. This suggests that the transformation energy could still be playing out on the US government or through the US lawmakers.

The conflict between Uranus and Venus seems to be far enough away from Hawaii so as to not bring that into play, thus I’m looking towards the African and European alignment with Venus. Look for litigation to ‘spring out of the blue’ from the below-mentioned countries and that the people will see it as being anti, or in defense of, their culture.

Now let’s look at the data.

Gratitude 11-11-11 Energy!

Guest article by Mona Delfino from Sacred Reconnections

Everyone on the planet is going through change, and many are experiencing the transformation of their internal chaos.

This is a very important time in our history! Chaos isn’t bad, and it doesn’t hold us back. It begins the process of movement, which can then shift into the deepest of the subconscious desires we created many moons ago! Actually, if you tune into the heart, you will witness a feeling that sits down deep in the soul. It is an alignment created by you so many lifetimes ago, when we were in heaven.

A very high energy of the Supreme Being that we were created from has now become a reality on Earth. As hard as it is to see this, we are still here… experiencing the magnificence that real life has to offer. All we need to do is give our higher self permission to express itself and come out of the hiding that was brought on by old patterns, protection, pain, etc. These are emotions that have been present, however, if you let your mind open to change, you will see that it was all created by the hierarchy of this world.

I am writing this article on 11-11. As a matter of fact, it’s 11:00!! In my world, I have allowed the truth of my inner wisdom to come forth, without concerns of judgment, or other peoples ideas. Even science has become hijacked with untruths so that money and popularity would become its priority.

The heart is real, it speaks and it is now OUR unified priority!
Physical conditions are popping up for many people as these shifts are taking place world wide. I am a healer who works with so many people throughout the world, and it is this information that I share with you to help you understand the reality of your body’s language. Your body is responding to your higher self. The adrenal glands are tired of holding on to patterns no longer serving your health. Your heart, and your nervous system, is mostly affected during this period.

So many are developing a fast heart rate, a deep quickening that feels like anxiety, but somehow is not. This is energy. It’s the meat of life at work. You have so much to offer, so much to stand for, and most importantly, so much to witness in order to become the soul you came here to be. 11-11 marks this time in history where we are rising to this epic consensus through what we see the world going through and experiencing. We can no longer hide what the soul knows.

Rather than listening to false leaders, or holding people on a pedestal, we must recognize the internal leader of which you are and came here to know, experience, learn from and act upon. All of us are so similar; we just have different experiences that have caused us to react differently. Down deep, there is only love that unites all of us, no matter what these superficial opinions try to demonstrate.

Many people are allowing themselves to get to a rock bottom state in order to redesign their lives. It isn’t feasible anymore to continue a pattern that hasn’t changed a thing. So the truth is expansion is at hand, to allow the heart to reopen in a new direction. This is what the 11-11 means…. A beginning of change that will significantly recreate a world of chaos into wisdom, peace and clarity.

As an international healer, I ask that you give yourself acknowledgment in a world that waits for your wisdom. We’re listening… Much Love and gratitude for all of us in this dynamic world of change!

All my love, Mona Delfino~

Planet Alert November 2018

We just watched a blue wave of women come to the foreground to help change the energy in the United States government. Our government has been male dominant for a long time and I think we have needed some soft feminine energy in a leadership role. Our election chart had Venus conjunct the moon (female energy) in Libra and both objects were opposing Uranus, the planet of light.

Uranus was also in a perfect square to the north and the south node on zero degrees Leo and Aquarius. The north node is now on 29 degrees Cancer which is the degree of “A daughter of the American Revolution”. That means to me that many women who were connected to the government in the past are back in power. The sun was on 14 degrees Scorpio on Election Day and that degree means “the need to establish new lines of communication.” What a nice way to start the New Year of 2019.

The good news is that Uranus was in a perfect square to the North Node on Election Day, which means women will now start to be heard more than they have been in the past. We are in the age of Women (Virgo) which started on July 11, 1991 when we entered into the sixth sun in the Toltec-Mexico calendar. That was the day there was a total solar eclipse over Mexico City and lots of UFOs appeared in their videos.  The transition period into the sixth sun lasts from July 1991 to 2021. This transition period has been very hard for many people. The Harmonic Convergence in August of 1987 started many people on their journey inside so they could start releasing their past and make way for the new energy.

We are now in the transition period of our old government to our new government which starts in January of 2019. During this two month transition period the energy will still be very chaotic because Uranus has gone back into Aires and will stay there until March of 2019. Uranus will again be doing a dance with Eris. Eris is the planet of chaos. She was first announced by Astronomers on January 5, 2005 right after the Tsunami happened in SE Asia. This is the power of that Asteroid Goddess. She has been activating one disaster right after another and Uranus has been helping her because they have both been in Aries.

Vesta, the very powerful fire goddess was conjunct Pluto on the November New Moon chart. That has brought forth some very powerful fire energy that has been expressed in California. Jupiter has also moved into the fire sign Sagittarius where it will stay for one year.  The first degrees of Sagittarius are expressed in southern California up to about San Francisco. Thus, the fires started when Jupiter moved into Sagittarius and they are very large because Jupiter is a huge planet.

I received an email this morning from a woman on my list that just lost her home in the fire. I have much compassion for those who are losing their homes and some people are losing their lives. Please send light, prayers or whatever you think will help to these people who are going through so many traumas. In fact, I think it would be a good idea to send light all around our beautiful Earth because there are so many Earth changes that are happening all over the world. We could also send light to Mother Earth because she is also going through much trauma. We could tell her we love her and thank her for being our home.

We experienced a solar eclipse on September 13, 2015 which was in the sign of Virgo. This was the beginning of the dark night of the soul for many of us because we entered a very dark period of time. The dark ones from the Astral plane were sent down to Earth to cause havoc for a period of three and a half years which will end in March of 2019.  The war that had been going on in the Astral (4 D) for a long time came to an end and the dark ones fell to Earth to finish the war energy here on Earth.

The dark ones were given total control and we have had to witness this event for three years now. I do see a changing of the guard with the Blue Wave of women who were elected to change the energy of the house to one of balance. That is a start.

With Jupiter now in Sagittarius we will see many more law suits, arrests, subpoenas, and court hearings. Sagittarius also rules the higher mind, schools, colleges and religion.  The Vatican will probably come to the forefront now because of all their accusations of sexual misconduct. The sun is still in Scorpio right now which rules sexual energy. On November 22 the sun moves into Sagittarius and the energy starts to change. The full moon also happens on November 22 at 9:39 PM PST and the moon will be conjunct Jupiter. This starts the energy of Sagittarius big time and Jupiter will be in that sign for one year.

There are other things that happen this month. Venus goes direct on November 16 and Mercury turns retrograde on that day.  Mercury turns retrograde in Sagittarius and this can bring up things from the past that needs to be settled like old law suits or things on that order.  This could either be personal issues or worldwide issues. Then Mercury goes back into Scorpio again on December 1 and stays there until December 13 when it goes back into Sagittarius. This energy brings much confusion or change of plans so please keep your cool when things do not go as planned, or your electronics go a little crazy.

I think that our president Donald Trump has to look at some issues from his past that he does not want to see. He has entered a very hard period of time with Saturn opposing his Mercury.  This energy will last until mid-December. Trump said he came to power to drain the swamp. What exactly does that mean? I think he has been doing that by bringing up all the corruption that has been going on in the world for a long time, and bringing it to our attention so we can learn from that experience.  We should be grateful that he came in to tear down the structure of the United States government. Someone had to do that and apparently it was his job. The old has to fall before the new can arise. He said he came to make America Great Again. I think this blue wave of women elected to the house are about to ignite that new energy.

I also think Trump had a very hard and unloving childhood and he has been looking for love his whole life.  This is why he became so angry. He has not been experiencing the love he craves to make him feel good so he expresses anger. This has been a good lesson for all of us because it has given us a chance to look at our own anger and release it. In the process it has brought up a lot of chaos. Can you imagine all those angry thoughts flying around everywhere so people can pick them up and then use that anger to hurt people?  No wonder the world has been in so much chaos.

Maybe some of us need to change the anger we feel toward Trump and send him the love he needs. We could also send this love to ourselves so we can also heal. The holiday season is here so let’s enjoy this season by manifesting love and just be who we are, which is Love.  Everything is going to be alright.   So Be It!

I wish everyone in the United States a Happy Thanksgiving.

Inferior Solar Conjunction of Venus

I (Dave) found it interesting that Alison woke up inspired to talk about the inferior solar conjunction of Venus at the same time I was inspired to mention it. I posted a video on my new website (Inferior Solar Conjunction of Venus) with a mundane interpretation of what we might look for which, in hindsight seems very masculine for the distinctly feminine plant.

Alison’s point of view is unique and clearly feminine. When I view what she came up with and review what came to me, we’re both talking about the same thing, yet using different works and points of view.

I’m including a link here so you can enjoy Alison’s point of view and feel her inspiration.


Mother of the Isles

by Alison Dhuanna, UK Astrologer

I share this story as a transmission for this moon cycle which began with New Moon conjunct Ceres and will reach fruition on the 24th/25th October with Full Moon in earthly Taurus. This coincides with Venus reaching Inferior conjunction with the Sun and beginning its journey into the underworld. This moon cycle is a very good time to break destructive patterns as it represents in spatial time the 40 days and nights Christ spent in the desert.

The Sabian Symbol for this Full Moon is on Taurus 2: AN ELECTRICAL STORM ILLUMINATES THE HEAVENS AND THE FORESTS and Venus is retrograde on Scorpio 5: A MASSIVE, ROCKY SHORE RESISTS THE POUNDING OF THE SEA. This story is also a transmission of the outpouring of Holy Grail waters from the conjunction of Astraea, Hygeia, Neptune and Chiron in the early part of Aries. Chiron has moved back into Pisces to a powerful point of endings and beginnings in the zodiac.

Mother of the Isles

I tell this story of the Mother of the Isles with the tongues of seals for they are far older than us humans and remember the stories of the Earth well.

55 billion years ago these rocks upon which I stand were part of Greenland. Their story has poured from the fissures of fractured Lewisian gneiss, arrived as a stampeding herd of white horses on the violent spray of Atlantic waves rolling in and gales the likes of which I have never known. I have pitted my wits towards the raw power of the elements, I have come to know myself as both immortal and insignificant, allowed it to blast away all irrelevancy to be left with this one clear thought.

In the great tearing apart of Gondwanaland into many pieces, which happened over countless aeons of time, these rocks anchored here in the shape of a face called the Mother of the Isles * or the Outer Hebrides as it may be located on the world map.

Through earthquakes and volcanic eruptions beneath the ocean she metamorphized. She was transformed also by the great meteor which hit earth and formed the volcanic island of Skye. She has twice been swallowed whole by the Earth, and her unique strata with flesh coloured intrusions which form her rosy hue arose once more to reach for the sky. In her third rebirth she was cloaked in ice for thousands of years which carved her shapely form as we know it today. Always she is changing, battered by the elements, and yet also unchanging.

It is said that St Rodin arrived here in the 6th Century with the mysteries of Christ, riding upon the back of a whale and founded the Church of St Molua’s with its sacred well that cures madness. It’s unusual ground plan of a t-square connects it to an ancient Norse church at Gardar in Greenland. The dedication of the church may be connected to the Sea God Lug from the “Iua” syllables of Molua. In the olden times people brought home brewed beer which was offer to the sea god “Shony” at Samhain, asking for fertility for the land through the gift of a special seaweed washed up by winter storms. St Molua’s church sits in the ‘crown’ of the Mother.

A church of identical ground plan was dedicated at the southern tip of Harris in Roghadal. Here there is a strangle tale indeed. A bardic poetess Mairi Ruaidh born approximately 1615, who was part of the Macleod clan, is buried here. She is buried face down to the ground at her own request. Mairi’s power as a songstress was marred by being accused of hurting the children of the clan leader through her songs of love to them and she was for many years banished to Mull. Her story is a tragic one, and truly the story of so many of the women (and men) of these islands whose creative life has been silenced.

In this St Clements church are many mysterious carvings such as the meeting of Sun gods of `European and possible Mayan descent and a man of `Mongolian appearance holding a skull, the symbol of the `Holy `Grail’. There is also a `Sheela-na-gig of graceful beauty given birth to a seal. The sacred relationship to the Selkies and the creatures of the sea, their infinite wisdom has been left here as a message in the stone and into the fabric of the coming Christ Consciousness birthed from the Earth herself.

The Isles of Bernera, North and South Uist, Eriskay and Barra form the remainder of the face of the Mother of the Isles and how I long next spring to be a pilgrim there. I caught sight of a postcard of Our Lady of the Isles with Christ in her arms at South Uist and it set my heart alight.

Let me speak now of the Earth dragon leys to which we have been shown which flow in from the sea where the seal colony live and form a first portal at St Molua’s church. These two lines of great telluric power sweep through the front and back of the head of the Mother. The feminine line, which I will name Mairi, after the poetess and the Lady of the Isles (Gaelic Mary) sweeps down the west of the Outer Hebrides (front of the face).

The male line which I shall name Columba, as he passes through at least 3 churches dedicated to this seafaring saint, runs down the east of the isles and the back of the head. Thus, Mother of the Isles embodies both genders, as do all life forms.

The second portal of the telluric lines is in Callanish I, II and III which lie close together in front of the Calleach mountain known as Sleeping Beauty where the moon rises and infuses her silver light upon this holy mountain every 19 years. This central point of Callanish would broadly coincide with the pituitary gland in the human head in location. Here the telluric line is like a great river running across the land, the largest I have experienced even at Avebury and such major sites. There has of course here been less interference from people in subduing the power of the land. In some ways it’s a blessing the Church believe all this to be nonsense. Callanish, where Mairi and Columba meet, is the place where the passions and desires are tamed and brought under control of the indwelling Christ consciousness and the heart. When we reach this place of love and understanding of the negative impact of pandering to our desires on self and others, we want to stop of our own accord.

My prayer is for the birthing of the Christ Consciousness to bring peace upon this land and all peoples of the Earth. May the love which is our birth right arise from this ancient Mother, the Mother of the Isles and in all the mountains and rivers of the Earth where pilgrims walk and sing their songs. My gratitude is to her in showing me her story, the ways of her changing. In this huge turning of Europe, Britain, USA and the whole world may love and more love prevail. Amen.

News Flash October 2018

Full Moon   –    Election

Hello everyone. I am in a much better mood than I was when I wrote my last letter. I think it is alright to express anger if you see things going on that you do not like. If we could all stay in a peaceful state all the time we would be superhuman. I am usually a very peaceful person and try to stay that way. This time I will just talk about what the planets are doing.

We are approaching a very powerful full moon on October 24 at 9:24 AM PST. At this time there will be a T cross in the heavens with the Sun conjunct Venus opposing the moon conjunct Uranus and squaring Saturn. Uranus always brings surprises and it is hard to predict just what will occur. The exact degree helps figure out what may happen.

The sun is on one degree Scorpio. The meaning of this degree is “The fundamental human eagerness to expand one’s social horizon and to experience the results of collective achievements and a new way of life”. Venus is on the degree of “A youth carrying a lighted candle”. This could mean that many young people are waking up and wanting to take part in a group effort. Maybe this is referring to the upcoming election in the United States.

The moon is conjunct Uranus on one degree Taurus. This degree means “the pure uncontaminated and spontaneous manifestation of one’s own nature. Out of the past a new pure release of potentiality has emerged. This energy is ready to perform whatever work its dharma is to accomplish”. Saturn is on four degrees Capricorn. This degree means “The ability to use natural resources and basic skills in order to achieve a group purpose”. There seems to be a flow of energy for change written in this upcoming T cross in the heavens.

The ascendant for this chart is on 23 degrees Scorpio (West Coast time). This degree means “The raising of animal drives to a higher frequency.” Mercury is on 21 degrees Scorpio. This degree means “The readiness to face the results of a refusal to follow the authoritarian patterns of an aggressive society”. These degrees tell a story of us moving into a new way of life. I guess we will see how this all works out. “These degrees are from the book “An Astrological Mandala”.

Jupiter is making its last stand in the sign of Scorpio and has brought to light many misdeeds of the past and many of them have been of a sexual nature. On November 8 at 4:38 AM PDT Jupiter will move into Sagittarius. This sign has an entirely different meaning than Scorpio. Sagittarius is a fire sign and rules freedom. It also rules higher consciousness, judges, supreme courts and other courts of law, colleges, the Vatican and religions. Watch how the energy will start to change as soon as Jupiter moves into Sagittarius. I find it interesting that Jupiter moves into Sagittarius shortly after our election is finished. This full moon energy will be in effect until the election here in the United States.

There are other events that will occur before and after this full moon. The first thing is the sun is opposing Uranus which brings changes of all kinds to light. Two days after the full moon the moon will be opposing Jupiter. The two areas that will be affected by Jupiter will be the West Coast USA and the Middle East.

On my world map Taurus rules the west coast and Scorpio rules the Middle East. There is already an event that happened last week with Mohammed Bin Salman, the ruling prince of Saudi Arabia. He was accused of killing an American reporter from Virginia. The latest news is that 19 of his people have been accused of this murder. I think there will be more chaos in the Middle East from this full moon.

Mohammed Bin Salman came to power in 2016. When he first came to power he arrested several of his relatives and business men in a hotel and then stole all of their money. Then he started the war in Yemen which has been very devastating. On this full moon day there will be a Future Investment Intuitive Conference in Riyadh. Some leaders have backed out of this meeting in protest of the death of the reporter Jamal Khashoggi.

The West Coast will also be involved in this full moon energy. We could have some stormy weather along the coast. There are also 4, 000 emigrants on their way to the southern border of the United States and Trump said he will not let them into our country. This could cause another major challenge when they arrive here. Right now, they are at the southern Mexican border. Link: Mercy and Compassion Meditation.

We are in the energy of chaos and have been there since September of 2015. Everyone seems to be in chaos in one way or another. It has been a rough time for light workers, especially the ones who have held the light for so many years. We are getting tired and are ready for a change. Hopefully we can vote our way into a new energy that will put balance into our government.

We are in a very critical time period and it is time for us to stand up for what we believe and express this energy in a peaceful way. Our country has become totally polarized. How can you get anything done when there is always fighting between the two parties and this has gone on for a long time. Now it has reached the point of total chaos. United you stand, divided you fall. What do you choose to experience?

Uranus, the planet of change is retrograde in Taurus until Nov 7 and then it moves back into Aries until January 7, 2019. In January Uranus moves into Taurus to start a new cycle for seven years. Taurus rules money and the Earth.

The North Node moves out of Leo and back into Cancer on November 7, 2018. This is a big deal. Cancer energy is very different from Leo energy. Cancer rules women, home, family and food. The node will be in Cancer for the next year and a half.

Hang in there because we will make it one way or another. Please visualize the energy of love and light surrounding the whole world, and please stay in that energy of love and give thanks for all of your blessings. Giving thanks works wonders.

All is well in my world. So Be It.

Love to everyone.    ***** Mahala Gayle *****

Election Day Astrology – What’s Your Take?

Article by Dave

I have to give a big thank you to all the community members! Your support has directly funded the astrology software that was used to generate data for this article. At the end of this article you will find links to all the data files so you can review and interpret the data from your own point of view. I would love to see your comments or suggestions, particularly – your interpretation of the data.

Election Day – Can astrology help predict the outcome?

If anyone were to use astrology to predict the outcome of the election, what would they look for? Or maybe I should word it this way, can astrology give us an idea regarding who might win an election?

My approach is to look to see what types of energies should be flowing for each political party on election day in order to see who will be ‘swimming upstream’ and who will be ‘going with the flow.’

Drum roll please…

Wait! Before you take my word for it, skip to the reference section at the bottom of this article and go look at the data. If I left out some key data, please let me know so I can include that information in this article too. When you do analyze the data, please share influences that you think are critically important to consider so we can all get a clearer image regarding what’s coming our way this November.


To me, the energies show situations that are currently harmonious for the republican party and restrictive to the democratic party. The democratic transits-to-natal report sums it up with the Saturn square Pluto interpretation seen in the Cosmo Natal Interpretation:

“Your personal aims, ambitions, and interests meet with unexpected obstacles at this time. Doors that you have been hoping would open are closing instead.”

Likewise, the Uranus trine Mars interpretation for the republicans:

“With confidence and courage, you assert yourself boldly. You energetically accomplish a great deal during this time period. Your energy level is much higher than usual, and you can work for long hours without fatigue. You will find yourself up late into the night, without getting sleepy.”

The biggest thing that I see as a detriment for the democratic party is that the energies are aligned to force the party to deal with emotional issues which they will not be able to control. The energy is aligned for ‘death like’ experiences and their leadership communication ability is restricted. It’s like they will be in a situation where they will have to plan a funeral, watch their company go under, have their computer break and then they forget their password. The energy doesn’t seem conducive to coming out on top.

Now, please, review the details.

Democratic Party

The time selected for the birth of the democratic party is January 8th, 1828 @ 10am in Washington DC. This is a widely accepted time which gives confidence to the placement of the houses. Here is the wheel.

Please note that I’ve included five major asteroids, the mean nodes and the standard planets. For clarity, I only included the major aspects of the standard planets.

What immediately stands out?

  • Pallas is conjunct the ascendant, yet in the 12th house
  • Pluto is in Aries in the 1st house
  • Pluto is opposing the Moon where both are square Mercury
  • Sun and Neptune are conjunct in opposition to Saturn
  • Mars and Jupiter are conjunct trine the ascendant

Pallas is the Goddess of just warfare. This asteroid carries with it the influence of wisdom, courage, strategy and skill. This energy is conjunct the ascendant which would make you think that the energy is in direct relation the what defines the democratic identity, Yet, it’s in the 12th house. This puts it at the end of the cycle where that energy is put to work in order to digest what has gone right or wrong. The 12th house is where you either fight to hang onto what didn’t work or you release that energy and regroup for what’s coming. It gives me the feeling that the energy comes from a position of weakness rather than strength. If so, it might manifest as a calculating feminine energy that works from behind the scenes or from a hidden vantage point, rather then standing for justice in the open.

Pallas and the Ascendant are in Pisces which give’s the overall character of the party a likable energy. It’s a softer energy that is gentle, wise, musical and forgiving. Yet, the planetary influence in the 1st house is Pluto. This is the planet of the underworld, secrets, hidden agendas, violence, transformation, terrorists and dictatorship. Because the 1st house is directly related to the concept of self, Pluto should have a large influence here. And, this is not going to be a tame Pluto energy, it’s in Aries. It’s going to be on fire. Its aggressive, physical, impulsive, short-tempered and competitive.

Pluto then sits in opposition to the Moon which resides in the 7th house which has to do with stepping outside yourself and building relationships with others. The Moon will make all the partnerships emotional and with Pluto in dissidence, you might expect the darker aspects to be at the root of the emotion.

The Moon and Pluto are both square Mercury in the 10th house. That house is all about the intent of the leaders. In this case, it’s all about communication. Seeing that the square is with the planet of the underworld and emotions, it would seem that the leaders of this party will have a strong understanding of the transformational aspects of emotion.

Neptune is the ruling planet and it’s conjunct the Sun in Capricorn both in the 11th house. The Capricorn sign is going to bring up the type of energy that will make this party dislike just about everything at one time or another. They can be responsible and disciplined, yet at the same time unforgiving and condescending. Neptune is all about water and it’s the planet with the strongest ties to socialism. This planet is linked to fraud and deception. Together, both of these planets are in the 11th house which is all about emotional maturity and all the aspects associated with making decisions. The sun represents the leaders, figureheads, prime ministers, presidents, etc.

Taking that conjunction one step further, we can see that Saturn is in direct opposition to it. Saturn is all about restrictions, regulations, structure, poverty, elderly and the like. It’s in the 5th house that is all about how you want to be seen and what your moral actions are. This puts the leadership in an emotional position that is at odds with their morals. It that politics, or what?

The last natal aspect that stands out to me is the Mars and Jupiter conjunction in Scorpio in the 8th house all trine the ascendant. Mars is the planet of war, violent crime, aggression, force, violence, sport and competition. Jupiter is about overflowing abundance, prosperity, law, justice, religious figures, religion, etc. Scorpio will bring out the brave, passionate, stubborn and resourceful aspects of both planets, yet, because they are in the 8th house, these traits will be attributed to how they deal with others. The 8th house is the testing house. It is all about what you love or what you hate. You will be confronted by things that are out of your control and you’ll be forced to have to deal with it. Seeing that this conjunction is trine the ascendant, one might expect that this party will thrive on the energy of conflict and abundance. They will be at home with dealing with these highly emotional interactions between people.

Follow planetary ruler – Rising is Pisces which is ruled by Neptune which is in Capricorn which is ruled by Saturn which is in Cancer which is ruled by the Moon which is in Virgo which is ruled by Mercury which is in Capricorn which is ruled by Saturn. Thus, Saturn is the sole dispositor and it will be a key player for this organization.

Republican Party

The time selected for the birth of the republican party is March 20th, 1854 @ 2 pm in New York, New York. As with the case of the democratic birth time, this time is also widely accepted which in turn gives us confidence with regards to the house placement. Here is its wheel.

What immediately stands out?

  • Leo Rising
  • Mars in the 1st house in Virgo
  • Mars conjunct Venus; both square Saturn
  • Mars Trine MC and Pluto
  • Mars Quincunx Sun

There we have a chart that shows a clean Leo rising. We can expect that this party will identify with Leo characteristics that include being creative, passionate, generous, arrogant, stubborn, self-centered and inflexible. Leo’s are natural born leaders and tend to be pretty self-confident.

When you look energy that will be pivotal in determining what the party identifies with, you’ll find the energies of Mars in Virgo. As I’m sure you’re well aware, Mars is the planet of war, violence, crime, military action, riots, fighting, sports, etc. Seeing that Mars has just changed signs into Virgo, it doesn’t amplify the showy Leo aspects of the war like energy, but rather brings in an analytical, loyal, hardworking aspect of the energy. The Virgo energy is methodical making sure nothing is left to chance, thus one might interpret the Mars influence as being violence with purpose, or war when it’s necessary rather than being emotionally triggered or initiated on a whim.

Mars is in direct opposition to Venus which is in Pisces at the end of the 7th house. Venus is going to represent the arts, fashion, leisure, luxury, entertainment, money and peace. The softness of Venus is magnified in Pisces which is the gentle, wise, musical, intuitive energy that can be overly trusting and fearful. Venus sits on the edge of the 7th house which is all about partnerships and agreements. This is the house where you make emotional connections to other.

When I look at this aspect, I see a party that has a very strong identity to a nit-picky masculine energy that is at odds with the emotional free flowing feminine energy. It might represent an energy that will find flaws in everything artistic or it might be that it will fight anything that is emotionally based.

As it turns out, both Mars and Venus are square Saturn. As with all squares, this will create agitation between the planets by amplifying the restrictive, controlling properties of Saturn. These squares are going to highlight the need for rules and regulations and push for the establishments of contracts. Seeing that Saturn is in Taurus, this party may put lots of effort into creating contracts. They will want the marriage set in stone so no one can change it. You might look at this three-planet configuration as the man saying to the woman – ‘we signed a contract. Fulfill your end of the deal or you’ll be sorry.’

Here, we also want to look towards the Midheaven and we’ll find a couple more aspects with Mars.

Pluto is in Taurus in the 10th house. As we know, the 10th house is all about the intent of the leaders. It is the house that shows how they rule and what their principles are. In this case, we find Pluto (and Uranus and Saturn all independent). With this placement of Pluto, we find that the underworld is a little more grounded. We’re still dealing with secrets, hidden resources, violence, transformation, dictatorship and secret police, but the energy is more reserved. It’s as if the leaders of this party are willing to use the power of Pluto to accomplish their objectives, but they’re not going to jump into it. The only complication is that Pluto is trine Mars. The energy of Pluto and Mars will work together when it’s needed and the trine suggests that there will be good uses of this energy.

It’s also worth noting that in the 10th house, which represents the attributes of the leaders of this party (their principles and mission), we find Uranus, which can bring an explosive energy and Saturn, which brings in restrictions. This is a very strong trio with ties to the ascendant and Mars, which is fortunately grounded in Taurus.

Its also worth looking at the Sun. The Sun influences come from Pisces and are applied in the 9th house which shows a strong understanding to how the social order works. This is the house of higher education and social growth. The unfortunate part is that it’s at odds with Mars in the first house. This might indicate that the energy at the heart of the party is threatened by higher education. Or that the party both wants and doesn’t want higher education or that it only wants a particular type of higher education. Or maybe that this party is very passionate and actively pursues higher education.

Follow planetary ruler – Rising is Leo which is ruled by the sun which is in Pisces which is ruled by Neptune which is in Pisces. Thus, Neptune is the sole dispositor.

Election Day

Now we want to look ahead at November 6th, 2018. Ultimately, we’re going to want to know where the planets are and how they might affect the two different political parties.

Rather than drawing a chart for election day, we’re going to simply create a bi-wheel that shows the transits relative to the natal charts for both parties during the election. This way, we can look for aspects that might be interesting and interpret at what they might mean.

Election Day – Democrats

To review, we know that:

  • The identity of the party has Pluto at its core
  • The Pluto traits of the identity are in a hard aspect to the Moon and Mercury
  • The Sun and Neptune are in a hard position with Saturn
  • Mars and Jupiter are connected directly to the ascendant and Pallas
  • Saturn plays a key karmic role for this entity

Now, do you see any aspects in the biwheel that are worth noting?

To me, there are a few aspects worth talking about.

Transit Sun is Conjunct natal Mars

Notice the Transit Sun is just coming out of a perfect conjunction with Mars and a few days before that, Jupiter. In the natal chart these are harmonious aspects to the identity of the party. Seeing that the Midheaven is also aligned to the ascendant, it would seem that there will be an abundance of fighting energy particularly with regards to emotions that are outside the party’s control. This would be the influence of the 8th house.

Transit Saturn is Conjunct natal Mercury

Also, we know that Saturn plays a key karmic role in this chart and it’s sitting next to the natal Mercury all in the 10th house. Keep in mind that this is the house that shows the traits of the leaders in this organization. Saturn is going to bring the resistance, rules and regulations as it influences how the leadership is able to communicate. I would expect all aspects of communication to be impacted by this aspect.

Transit Pluto is Conjunct natal Sun + Neptune

We also know that Pluto plays a key role in the identity of this party. That underworld energy is nearly on top of the natal Sun + Neptune pair all in the 11th house of emotional maturity. This is the house that represents the most mature aspects of the organization. It touches on how it is run and how the long-term decisions are made. Pluto, in this role, will most likely bring transformation to the leadership and how decisions are made. Note that this is a longer-term transit so some of the effects should have already been felt.

Transit Pluto is Opposing natal Saturn

This transit might be a little out, but Pluto seems to really have an impact on this party. If you roll back the clock to July 24th 2016, you’ll see that Pluto was perfectly conjunct Neptune and nearly perfectly in opposition to Saturn right around the time that news broke that Debbie Wasserman Schultz stepped down from her leadership position in the party which was a time where the party was pledged by scandals and secrets.

If you want to look at nearly perfect aspects, I ran the software to give me the exact list of nearly perfect transits-to-natal and this is what it produced.

25 Oct 2018     11:54 AM  ( 9 Oct to  6 Nov)            Sat Sqr Plu
 5 Nov 2018     12:34 AM  ( 4 Nov to  6 Nov)           Sun SSqr Moo
 5 Nov 2018      2:26 AM  ( 2 Nov to  7 Nov)           Ven SSxt Moo
 5 Nov 2018      8:00 AM  ( 3 Nov to  7 Nov)            Ven Sqr Ura
 7 Nov 2018     11:28 PM  ( 6 Nov to  9 Nov)            Mer Sqr Asc

From this collection, it would seem that the transit Saturn will be in a hard aspect with the natal Pluto. If we where to see any transformation, it’s going to be with regards to the identity of the party.


The leading days right up to the election has the Sun amplifying the Jupiter and Mars energies in the 8th house. This is the house of death and birth, but more importantly, it’s about having to deal with things that happen to you that are outside your control. They are generally deeply emotional and force you to have to mourn. It’s not a great place to have your key power planet.

In the 10th house of leadership, this party has restrictive energy. As seen in the natal chart, the strength of this party is to be able to lead in an emotional way. How they communicate is critically important to how they lead. With Saturn creating resistance here, I would expect that there will be breakdowns in communication or restrictions that hinder how this party gets the message out.

What makes this even worse is that Pluto is in the 11th house which deals with the long-term aspects of ruling the organization. That is the house where structures are put in place to make sure the organization functions successfully over generations. Pluto has passed Neptune and still has a little hold on the Sun, which suggests that the transformations to the party have already been taking place. This is not a good sign for the long-term functioning of this group.

As I see it, the energy for this organization is more aligned with fighting for its survival and having to defend itself against emotional energies that it has no control over. It’s more of a struggle then a celebration.

Election Day – Republicans

Let’s do the same thing for the republican chart.

To review, we know:

  • Mars energy is at the heart of the identity of this party
  • Mars and Venus are at odds with each other
  • Saturn is in a hard aspect with both Mars and Venus
  • Mars and the Sun energy can be misunderstood
  • Neptune has a key karmic role to play

When I look at this chart, I want to find aspects that challenge Mars or cause conflicts with any of the planets in the 10th house of leadership. Yet the first thing that stands out is Neptune.

Transit Neptune Conjunct natal Neptune

We’ve already established that Neptune is a planet with karmic significance for this party. Even though it’s a longer transit, it’s probably going to carry strong undertones that will make this party feel ‘at home’, ‘in sync’, ‘aligned’ allowing the mind to dream and entertain ideas that are not grounded in the physical.

Transit Uranus Nearly Conjunct natal Pluto

The current location of Uranus is in Taurus moving retrograde. It falls back into Aries exactly during the election. It doesn’t come back out of Aries until March of next year. Uranus can signify radical change, upheaval, rebellion, anarchy, independence and unexpected events. Uranus is temporally moving from a grounded feminine sign of Taurus into the fiery masculine sign of Aries. This planet is also playing with the cusp of the Midheaven between the 9th and 10th houses. I would expect that this sign transition will accentuate the differences between male and female and we’ll see this again after it turns direct.

Looking forward, Uranus will be coming back to transverse the 10th house and complete its conjunction with Pluto on April 4th, 2019. We might be in for some explosive transformational changes to the leadership of the party come springtime.

Transit Pluto nearly Conjunct natal Jupiter

Pluto is starting to work on transforming the influence of natal Jupiter. Natal Jupiter is in the house that represents the results of your work. It is a karma type situation. If the work is harmful, the results will show in sickness or disharmony. Likewise, if the work is helpful, the results will show a new state of health. The interesting thing about this aspect is that it doesn’t come exact until March 24th 2019. It’s as if this chart is setting up for some significant transformations next spring.

When I run the transit-to-natal report, I get the following aspects that are in effect on the 6th of November.

21 Oct 2018      2:38 AM  ( 9 Sep to  3 Feb 2019)      Nep Conj Nep
27 Oct 2018      9:11 AM  ( 2 Oct to 22 Nov)          Ura Trine Mar
28 Oct 2018      7:59 AM  (13 Oct to  9 Nov)          Sat Qucnx Nod
 4 Nov 2018      5:23 PM  (11 Oct to  3 Dec)            Ura Conj MC
 5 Nov 2018      8:37 PM  ( 3 Nov to  8 Nov)          Ven Qucnx Sat
 6 Nov 2018      7:09 AM  ( 6 Nov to  7 Nov)          Sun Trine Nep
 7 Nov 2018      2:10 AM  ( 6 Nov to  8 Nov)           Mer SSqr Jup
 7 Nov 2018      2:59 AM  (25 Oct to 17 Nov)            Sat Sqr Mer
 7 Nov 2018      3:10 AM  ( 6 Nov to  8 Nov)          Sun Sesqu Sun
 7 Nov 2018      4:17 PM  ( 3 Nov to 12 Nov)          Jup Trine Sun
 8 Nov 2018      3:40 PM  ( 4 Nov to 13 Nov)           Jup Qucnx MC
10 Nov 2018      4:37 AM  (16 Oct to 12 Dec)           Ura SSxt Sun
10 Nov 2018      4:38 AM  ( 5 Nov to 14 Nov)            Jup Sqr Mar
 1 Dec 2018      1:27 PM  (14 Jun to  2 Jan 2019)     Plu Sesqu Nod
28 Dec 2018      7:33 PM  ( 9 Sep to  3 Feb 2019)      Nep Conj Nep
 6 Feb 2019     11:27 PM  ( 6 Nov 2018 to  6 Mar)      Ura SSqr Nep

With these aspects, we’re looking to see if there is anything to activate Mars in the natal chart. There are a few:

Transit Uranus trine natal Mars

This should be a very favorable transit for this party. Uranus will energize, encourage and give confidence to the party. It will feel like they will be able to get a lot done and that they can make forward progress.

Transit Jupiter square natal Mars

Even though this is a square, it’s going to kick the Mars energy into action. It will bring that bold, daring willingness to make your next step and break free of limitations. It’s going to open up new opportunities and possibly inspire the party deep down to its core.

Transit Sun trine natal Neptune

This transit is really going to empower the imagination. The party will feel very creative and will spend time enjoying the figments of their imagination.


There is a lot of activity unfolding for this party on election day. The energies seem to embolden and give courage to what they are doing. The ruling energy seems to be exalted and unopposed.

And, if you follow the Part of Fortune, you’ll see that Uranus, the planet that rules technology and unexpected changes is nearly perfectly conjunct. It would seem that their good lucky is energized.

Stormy Moon Goddess

by Alison Dhuanna, UK Astrologer

The New Moon in Libra and brings two important and inter connected themes – connections with the Divine Mother as it is conjunct Ceres, and relationships.

Yesterday I visited a wonderful artist Simant Bostock in the wilderness of Bernera, Outer Hebrides, Scotland who has worked with the Gaelic Goddess energies for many years. Driving through the mountains three golden eagles flew over us as we headed into this autumnal place of enormous sky, ancient gniess rocks and selkie lochs on the far West of the British Isles.

Simant related to us over a cup of tea in his studio, filled with mythical sculptures, paintings and skeletons of swans found on the beach, the story of Boana the Mother Goddess. Boana is a Cow Goddess all giving and often depicted as pregnant. She has connections with Mona the Celtic Cow Goddess and Hathor from Egypt. Boana has blue skin.

Boana was married to Nuada Silver Arm, Chieftain of the Tuatha de Danann and they resided at Newgrange in Ireland. However, as reflected in many other Goddess traditions like Ceres, Boana broke with conventional morality. In this case by having an affair and conceiving a child. Nuada during this time had been enchanted and entered another dimension which he could not leave.

What mysterious light can this archetypal myth shine on the unfolding relationship patterns for this month? This unfaithfulness of the Goddess almost always points to the ‘wild spirit’ part of feminine consciousness being in need of attention. This part is creative, independent and pleases itself. On a soul level this part must be nurtured by a deepest connection to oneself, to ones still place within. The lover is therefore the core part of ourselves, the Beloved talked of in every mystical tradition. To not feed the wild woman within, to suppress her needs results in depression and other forms of mental and emotional distress and sometimes physical illness. The pregnancy of Boana points to the fertility and abundance of the Goddess.

This moon cycle with Venus in a challenging square to Mars and Uranus opposing Mercury is likely to bring the unheard voice of the wild woman or man to the surface. The level of disruption of this will depend on one thing only, the willingness to listen to that voice which is deeply connected to your intuitive self.  You already know the answers. Retreating to a place of wilderness where you can be with the Beloved within will bring miraculous results in your relationships in the outer world. In a world that is always calling for our attention outwardly though this takes discipline and ruthlessly making space for our inner world to flourish.

Planet Alert October 2018

Yesterday was a historic day that will go down in history. The Republicans now control the Senate, the House and the Supreme Court of the United States. They now have total control of the power and can use it for their own benefit.  We are now living under a dictatorship and it appears like the dark has won although the battle will not be over until after the upcoming election on November 6, 2018. We can take back our power by voting for the people who have the desire for freedom and do not want to be controlled or live under a dictatorship.

I looked up the Astrology birth charts of both the Republican and Democratic parties. I found out that the Republicans are ruled by Mars, which has been considered the God of War. No wonder the Republicans have caused so many wars in the past. Mars is considered a red planet and in the past was very violent. Look at what George Bush did. He created a war that killed thousands or maybe even millions of innocent men, woman and children in the Iraq war. There was no reason for that war. Iraq did not have weapons of mass destruction and they had nothing to do with 9-11. There was no need to kill all those people and George Bush got away with what I call a War Crime.  Look at the karma he will have to deal with over time and the United States still has karma for creating that war. It looks to me like people still want that war energy to be in control because they voted for the Republicans and the red planet Mars.

The total eclipse that was over the United States on August 21, 2017 was on 29 degrees Leo. This activated Mars energy in the Republican chart. It also activated Mars energy in Trump’s chart because his Mars is on 26 degrees Leo and his rising sign is 29 Leo which means he brings in the energy of control, chaos, money, power, and arguments to the White House. Whoever he does not like he fires, just like in his TV show The Apprentice. His Leo energy makes him feel all powerful like he can do anything he wants to do.  The Republican Party is all about money, power, big business, control and violence. Look at the huge tax cut he gave the rich people. This energy will change soon and he will start feeling much opposition against him as soon as Saturn starts opposing his Mercury on 8 degrees Cancer which will occur before the end of this year. It is possible that aspect can put an end to his job as president

The rights of women have now been taken away and if Trump stays in power women will have no control over their life and their bodies. Is this the kind of energy you would like to live under? In the last few years women have come out in the open to express their power. Now they are starting to feel like they have no power and are very angry. Do you want to feel powerless? We can be heard if we go out and vote in mass to change the result of this power and control energy. I realize that Trump was meant to be president because all of the darkness had to come out into the open to have the light shine on it for the benefit of humanity. I also realize he would have to play the part of a Dark Lord to have all this corruption come out into the open.

Jupiter moved into Scorpio a year ago. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, the God of the Underworld. I like to look at Pluto as the transformer, which is what Pluto has been doing, but the original meaning was the God of the Underworld.  This is why so much corruption has come out into the open and a lot of it has been around the misuse of sexual energy towards women. Jupiter moves into Sagittarius on November 7, the day after the election. Sagittarius rules justice.

On Election Day we will find Jupiter on 29 degrees Scorpio. This is the most powerful degree of the whole zodiac. I know that from my own personal experience. I went to the dentist with that aspect in affect and almost ended up dead because the dentist gave me a double dose of Epinephrine. I started to leave my body with a heart attack. If the dentist had not given me oxygen right away I would not be here today. It took me two years to recover from what that event did to my body. When Jupiter is on 29 degrees Scorpio it will be in exact opposition to Alcyone, our central sun. This is like the dark against the light. Who will win? Alcyone is on 29 degrees Taurus which is ruled by Venus, the Goddess.

It takes 26,000 years for our solar system to go around Alcyone in the Pleiades. The Earth is part of the Pleiades system which is called The Seven Sisters. The Pleiades star ships are now here in full force. Apparently, they are waiting to see what happens and if we need help these benevolent space Beings will help us. Who knows what may happen because we are in the end times and a new beginning.

There was a war on the Astral level for many years and on March 20, 2016 the war on the astral was over. I know that from personal experience and the really dark beings from that level were thrown down to earth and have attacked and gone after many people. Their time is short although in the mean time they are causing chaos and violence anywhere they can create that energy.  It is very important that you enclose yourself and your family in a bubble of White Christ Light that is very thick so no one can break into it. The White Christ light is the energy of the Goddess.

Now back to the original chart of the Democrats. This party is ruled by Neptune, which is the higher Goddess energy for our solar system.  Venus is the Goddess of Earth. Neptune is a gentle planet and is blue in color.  The Democratic Party likes to help people and they created health care for everyone. Raising four children without any health care because we could not afford it was a challenge.  I was so happy when the Democrats provided health care for everyone whether you had money or not. I think food, shelter, and health care should be available to everyone.

When I hear people say Obama did not accomplish anything in his term as president I wonder what they are talking about. People had been trying to get health care for everyone for a long time because it was needed. Obama became president in 2008 after George Bush had crashed the economy. Obama put the economy back together within two years.  I was proud to call him our president. He presented himself in a dignified and gentle way. He was all for women’s rights. I thought he was one of the best presidents we have ever had. I would like to see that gentle energy back on this planet.

In my last article I said “The fire goddess Vesta will be conjunct Saturn, which is on 2 degrees Capricorn in the Fall Equinox chart. This will give a lot of power to that degree. The meaning of that degree refers to the disruptive consequences of negativity. The leaders who claim power over the people to lead them must reckon with the consequences of their too-impulsive use of power. Saturn is/was the karmic planet and whoever uses their power in a negative way will be called on to pay their debt. This energy is occurring now with the leaders of the USA.”  This energy will be in effect until the Winter Equinox. Leaders of our country pay attention or you may start experiencing your karma big time.

I would also like to address all the conspiracy theories that are out there. I have a question for those who are caught in that energy. Do you feel any love from those groups? Isn’t everything they talk about negative?  Do you want to spread that negative energy? Wouldn’t it be better to join a group who express love?

I have given you my opinion and hope it does not offend you because I do not like negative thoughts sent my way. I do not like the idea of being controlled. I believe in Freedom and Justice for all. I do not like seeing my country going down and turning into a dictatorship. I choose to live in a reality of love and peace.

Please surround this upcoming election with the White Christ Light for the highest and best good for everyone. Also surround all of the computers connected with this election so they will not be hacked again.  Please VOTE. We need to do our part. Let’s get out of this dark illusion and walk into the light.  It is time!  I will get off my soap box now and wish you a happy holiday and New Moon day which is today October 8, 2018.

I send love and light to all of you.

Why would an Astrologer want a Solar Return?

If you think about it, if an Astrologer can read their own chart, why would they want to get something like a Solar Return? In a way, this question would be similar to asking, if a chief can cook their own food, why would they want to go to a restaurant? Or maybe, if a musician can make their own music, why would they buy an old record?

It might seem weird, but from what I’ve observed, Astrologers tend to notice the universal energy patterns that interact with everyone on a continuous basis and they are driven to try to figure out how and why those influences happen.

Every Astrologer knows that this influential energy is ever present and predictable (to some degree), yet figuring out how it’s going to manifest in someone’s life is an art.

Alison is a practicing Astrologer and a long-time student of the art. She sent Mahala and I the following video where she shares her excitement regarding her Solar Return.

I love seeing this because it shows her love of the art of Astrology. Sure, she could read her own Solar Return, but then she would miss out on the art as it is expressed by another fellow Astrologer. The reason she gets her Solar Return might be similar to the reason why a chief goes out for dinner or a musician goes to a concert.

From my point of view, it looks like it is rooted in her love of the art.

If you love Astrology and you’re anywhere near the Isle of Lewis, I’m sure Alison would love to talk astrology with you.

May your soul be filled with the light of understanding.
