Hi community members.
Just wanted to post up a notification that the latest reports are now up and viewable.
Also, I’m in an investigative shopping period as I’m prepping to acquire another astrology interpretation for community members. If anyone has a specific preference about the next type of report, I would love to hear about it. You can do this via email. Would love to see your ideas.
If you’re a One Year Subscriber, I’ve just uploaded two new reports for you and an asteroid chart.
The first report is ‘4 Major Asteroids and Chiron Report’ which is a short, yet manageable report that covers the basic influences from Juno, Vesta, Pallas, Ceres and Chiron.
The second report introduces you to a much larger collection of asteroids that are conjunct and in opposition to your major planets.
Here is a video overview.
Would love to hear your feedback about the larger Asteroids Report.
If you haven’t noticed, I’ve uploaded Lunar Return reports for all the subscribers. You’ll notice that the reports show influences for the next few months. I tried to cover from now until late winter.
Please note that these reports are calculated on 28-day cycles. The start of the cycle is different for everyone because it’s based on your birth Moon location. This means that you may have received 3 or 4 reports.
Because these carts are based on your living location, if you’ve moved to a new city, you’ll want to email me so that I can update your current location and rerun the reports for you.
Also note that I’m running weekly transit reports for each of you. I try to get these out by Saturday each week and they show the week ahead.
I would like to thank Alison for sending us this video showing her approach to using the weekly transits information that is posted for all community members.
Let this video be your reminder that your next weekly report has just been posted.
Have a great day!

Quite often you’ll hear an astrologer mention that ‘if you don’t know your exact birth time and your exact birth location, your chart will not be accurate.’ Thus, there is this feeling that you’ve got to know your birth time right down to the second and the birth location right down to the building.
Well, if you look at this issue relative to how the earth spins, you’ll start to realize that there is extra room in the interpretation which allows a person to be ‘close enough’ regarding the location and time.
I cover what I state below in this video:
This issue is this: how accurate must my birth location be in order to get an accurate report?
The example is, can you use the city in which you were born if you were born 5 miles outside the town?
Well, the time written on your birth certificate is usually accurate to the minute. Yet, if there is any complication during delivery that delays the doctor from calling the exact minute of birth, what is written might be a few minutes off. Thus, is it accurate enough and how does that relate to the location on the earth?
To get a feel for this, you’ll have to figure out what a reasonable accuracy ‘zone’ is for astrology.
When I think about this, the important point that determines your astrology house layout is the rising sign – the degree & minute. It would be important to figure out how many miles on the earth’s surface would fall into the time frame to figure out the accuracy of a minute.
This involves a little math. Searching on Google, we find that the circumference of the earth measured at the equator is about 25k miles. If you travel 45 degrees north or south, you’ll find that the circumference at that point is about 17,500 miles. Because this northern point covers northern US and pretty much the center of Europe, we’ll use that circumference.
Time wise, a day is 24 hours of 60 minutes each giving us 1,440 minutes in a day. Because the earth spins east to west, we can divide the circumference into the distance traveled per minute which is just about 12 miles per minute (17 miles per minute at the equator).
This basically means that during a minute, the perfect tangent line that represents the rising sign spans 12 miles in each minute.
If the person that delivered you was perfect in their timing, all the people born in that 12-mile zone (east to west) would have the same minute on their birth certificate. If the doctor was off by a minute or so (either way) the latitude area covered by the clock could easily stretch another 12 miles east or west.
Thus, having a situation where you’re birth certificate lists a location that is 5 miles from your actual birth location is probably accurate enough to get the same (or very nearly identical) rising sign degree and minute.
If you have a birth certificate that lists a time value that is a quarter hour increment, it is probably a reasonable assumption that they guessed at the time you were born. On these birth certificates, the margin of error for the location is larger. Thus, the ‘zone’ for the latitude location is larger, maybe 5 minutes either way, which makes for a 60-70-80 mile range for calculating your rising sign.
So, when using your birth location to calculate your rising sign, you want to be within a reasonable distance from your actual birth location. It’s not uncommon for this distance to be 10 miles (east or west). This would still be considered very accurate.
The only complication is when your rising degree is nearly perfectly on the cusp of a sign – ether nearly perfectly 0 or 30. Anyone that has a chart where the rising sign falls in this zone should investigate their situation in order to determine for themselves if the doctor stated the correct time on the birth certificate by inspecting the traits of each sign to see how they are reflected in your own personality. You have to determine the adjustment that needs to be made to your chart.
In my experience, when choosing the location to generate the latitude points for a report, any location within about 10-15 miles works just fine.
I would like to announce that there is another report posted for all community members. It is the Advanced Forecast Report and it spans an entire year. This report is similar to the One Year Cosmo Forecast but covers more planetary aspects and covers the houses for the planets.
To see the report, please login on the reports page. You should find it as the one of the top reports.
With the addition of this report, we will also start providing a short weekly report that outlines the transits that are occurring for the upcoming week. These weekly reports will be called the “Weekly Advanced Forecast for [month], [year]”.
Here is a video where I talk about this new weekly report.
There are more reports in the works so stay tuned!
All the Community Members should now have a current Lunar Return Report on the website. If you bought a One Year Subscription, login on the reports page and you’ll get to view your reports.
Now for the details.
The Lunar return is a cart that represents the moment that the current position of the moon is directly conjunct your birth moon. Because of the 28-day cycle of the moon, this conjunction happens 13 times a year. Not only are there thirteen cycles, but because everyone’s birth moon is in a different location in their chart, Lunar returns start and end of different days for everyone.
When it comes to publishing these reports, I’ve tried to make sure that everyone in the community has a report that represents time in, and through, October.
The Influences of a Lunar Return are aligned to the cycle of the return. They start at the lunar conjunction and last until the next one. When viewing your Lunar Return Report, look for the section title that looks like this: “LUNAR RETURN: 15 September 2018 at 6:55:42 PM”. The title represents the starting date for the influences. Expect them to last about 28 days.
Lunar Returns are also aligned to your current location. If you look at either the wheel or report, you’ll see the location that I used for you. If you have moved, or the location was simply not accurate, please email me the location that would be appropriate for your future Lunar Returns.
Moving forward, I’m hoping to review the Lunar Returns around the 15th of the month to make sure everyone has a report that is current until I’m able to put up the next Lunar Report. This means that for anyone that joins the community now, they should receive up to 13 of these reports!
This post is to announce that there are a few more reports up for your enjoyment. If you are a community member, please login on the reports page to see your latest reports.
This is the Book of Destiny – Yearly, Karma and Money & Success reports. Please note that some card configurations do not have karma cards, thus a couple of you did not get karma reports. At this point, I don’t know if that is a good or bad thing. But I do know that it is what it is so I wouldn’t worry about it.
It’s worth noting that when I ran the Book of Destiny Reports for you, the report software requires that the birth card be selected for every report. To that, you can add other cards like your planetary ruler or the karma cards. So, with your karma reports, you’re going to find that the first half of the report is a repeat of your yearly report birth card. I wish I could have filtered that out, but it is what it is. We’ll just have to skip over it to get to the karma cards.
I hope you enjoy these reports. I find it fascinating how much things seem predetermined via this card system!
If you don’t know what our Community Program is, you’re missing out on the fun! Please check out our One Year Subscription. Most members have anywhere from 12-16 reports posted so far and I have a couple more in the works that should be posted within a couple weeks. I’ll let everyone know more about the reports closer to posting time.
Hi Community Members,
There are two new reports for all the subscribers: The Edgar Cayce Past Life Report and the Book of Destiny Life Report!
This weekend I moved all the community member birthdays into the Book of Destiny program. I’m now going to be able to run the reports that it offers for each subscriber. Because it takes a long time to upload these reports, I’d like you to login and review your first report. I always double check things, but if I got your birthday wrong, please let me know. I’m looking forward to running the rest of the reports.
This video says the same thing, but with different words.
This first report from the Book of Destiny program is the Life Report. I did an overview of this report a few weeks ago. Overview of the Book of Destiny Life Report. From this collection, we’ll get a couple yearly, a karmic and a find money & success report.
Solar Return reports have been uploaded for almost all the community members. If you did not receive yours, please send me an email.
In this video I also outline one of my passions – crypto-currencies. I’ve created a couple astrology reports for both Bitcoin and Litecoin. The Litecoin articles are due out this week.
I know some of you have no idea what crypto-currencies are or why they are interesting, yet, you’ve been reading about the changes that are coming for the financial world for years. It might be time to but two & two together and take a look.
I’m looking forward to putting together the next set of reports for you or helping you explore what is already posted. Have a great day!
If you’re going to analyze an entity using astrology, you need to seriously consider the birth time. When dealing with a person’s time of birth, you generally don’t have to look too far because it’s common practice to record that time on the birth certificate. Yet, you still have to consider the human element regarding that time. Did the doctor look at the clock at the birth instant? Was the umbilical cord cut first? Was there anything else that needed to be done before the clock was referenced? How much time passed before the moment of birth was recorded?
This can be significantly more complex when trying to figure out the birth time of something else, specifically if there is no certificate. Many astrologers won’t even work with a client if the client doesn’t have an accurate birth time. Why? Because the rising sign, midheaven and moon location are so important to the overall personality and a shift of a few minutes could easily change the sign of any of these. Keep in mind that there are twelve houses, thus the wheel rotates through a sign in about two hours. The Moon moves 13 degrees every day, which means it moves more than 1/3 of a sign in this interval.
If you practice mundane astrology, the birth times may, of may not be available to you. The research that you do regarding the time accuracy will determine the level of confidence that you have in the time that you’ve selected. You might also need to provide some type of argument to support the reason(s) why you performed the reading that you did at that particular time.
The reason for this is that it determines the scope of accuracy. If you know the exact time, everything (meaning the rising sign, the houses and all the planets) can be read and interpreted to their full extent. If you know that the birth time was early morning, say, somewhere between 2 and 6 am, you know have a time window that spans three houses. As an example, does the person have Scorpio, Sagittarius or Capricorn rising? When dealing with some organization, the best research may indicate that the ‘birth time’ was somewhere in a particular week of time. In this case, every sign is up for analysis and the moon could be in any of a few signs. There could be a number of aspects that the Moon made during this time and you won’t be able to include those specific aspects in your interpretation.
So, what does that mean for the mundane astrologer? It means that the confidence scale slides from the slower moving planets into the faster moving ones and then into the houses and the exact house (if the exact time is known). As an example, Uranus traverses the chart in 84 years. This puts it in each sign for about 7 years. Saturn, 2 ½ years, Jupiter 1 year, etc. (Quick Search Planetary Movements for all the planets.) The more accurately you define the birth time, the more detail you can use in your report.
Now, how does all this relate to the crypto currency Litecoin?
Well, we need to ask the question – when is the moment of life for Litecoin?
One of the coolest things about this project is that many of the different crypto currencies, including this one, have time stamps in each of the data blocks. This includes the first block. After doing a short search online, I found a website that displays information about the first Litecoin block. Follow THIS LINK to view that data. Notice that it decodes the block information so the time is easy to read.
GMT: Friday, October 7, 2011 7:31:05 AM
Your time zone: Friday, October 7, 2011 12:31:05 AM GMT-07:00 DST
So, do we simply accept this as the ‘time of life’ for Litecoin? Or do we look deeper?
Well, I want to know if the currency was functioning at that this point in time or just in a pre-functioning published state. To see these types of details, we want to look at the block history. Here is A LINK to that block history. If you follow that link, you’ll get to a page that shows the first couple thousand mined blocks. If you scroll to the bottom, you’ll see the genesis block and then all the rest that follow.
Now this is curious, notice that the genesis block happened on October 7th, 2011 but there was no consistent output until October 13th, 2011. Litecoin was designed to process blocks four times faster than Bitcoin, thus we would expect to see a block published every two and a half minutes. The first few blocks which got recorded over these first few days hints that the system might not have really been fully ‘alive.’ Yet when it starts pumping out blocks, those blocks get recorded at a rate much faster then the designed interval. In either case, the activity after block #3 looks steady, the few before that don’t.
So, which is it? The block published on the 7th, or where the steady activity starts on the 13th?
This is where we need to take what we know about the Litecoin community and go investigate to see which time represents the personality that we have witnessed about this project.
To do this, we can run a natal report on both times and read what we know will be different between the two charts. Because these two times are about six days apart, we know that the rising signs, the midheaven, and the positions of the planets in ALL houses will be different. And, the Moon has moved about 75 degrees, so everything about the moon will be different.
Here are the links to the two natal reports:
I’ve included the key data at the end of this post regarding the location of the planets for each time.
The first key difference is the rising signs for each. The genesis block has Cancer rising and the 3rd block has Leo rising. Let’s look at the difference.
You appear gentle and soft, and you act rather reserved with others until you know them well and feel it is safe to be open with them. You have a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and are deeply attached to the past: your heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is known and safe can be very painful and difficult for you. You tend to cling and hold on to people, memories, possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to you.”
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, you like to be impressive and to be seen as Somebody Special. You are not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and are rarely content being in the background or in the subordinate position. You are a natural leader, and do not take orders from others very well. You must have something of your own, something creative – be it a business, a project, a home or whatever – that you can develop and manage according to your own will and vision. Whatever you do, you do it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. You like to put your own personal stamp on it.”
To me, the Cancer description is the obvious choice between the two.
For the Sun. The genesis block:
“Sun in 4th house:
You are a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. You prefer to work at home or in a very personal small business.
You invest a lot of your creative energy into your home, your family, and your inner life.”
Versus block #3
“Sun in 3rd house:
The urge to learn and to communicate is essential to you, and you express yourself very well through writing, teaching or sharing ideas and information. You are persuasive and fluent with language.
Restless and inquisitive, you enjoy being mobile and taking short trips and excursions in order to see for yourself what is going on in the world around you.”
Sun in the 4th house seems more accurate, but it could go either way. Skipping a few, let’s look at Mars. For the genesis block:
“Mars in 1st house:
You are a doer and an achiever. Energetic, courageous, and often impatient, you will forge ahead with your plans regardless of others’ reservations. In fact, you often feel other people get in your way and you prefer working on your own. You are active, assertive, and rather competitive as well.”
Versus block #3
“Mars in 12th house:
Asserting yourself and being direct and forceful about what you want is very often difficult for you. Though you may have a great deal of energy and drive, you lack confidence or simply the desire to put yourself and your interests first. Positively you can be very unselfish, working more on behalf of others rather than for yourself.
You deny your own desires and needs too much, however, and you are likely to secretly become very angry, which will sabotage your finest efforts.”
I would again lean towards the description presented in the genesis block. Let’s skip ahead again to the Uranus house description. The genesis block:
“Uranus in 9th house:
You are unconventional, even iconoclastic, in your attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics. You tend to see traditional religion as restrictive, meaningless ritual with little to offer you, and you’re eager to experiment with other, alternative pathways. You have lots of creative, innovative ideas and you often feel that others are unwilling to take risks and venture out of their deeply ingrained perspectives and views.”
Versus block #3
“Uranus in 8th house:
Your life is characterized by sudden disruptions and events which change the direction of your life quite unexpectedly. You may be impatient and reckless at certain times, impulsively acting out your urge for new life and change. You are an emotionally complex person and you are capable of intense, unexpected outbursts of feelings and desires.
If you share material assets and resources with another person (as in a marriage or business partnership), your fortunes are likely to fluctuate wildly or change quickly for better or worse.”
Again, the genesis block seems to represent what I see unfolding in the Litecoin community.
After performing this exercise over all the houses, it seems pretty clear to me that the ‘heart beat’ of Litecoin really did happen with the genesis block. The synchronized block processing could have been a bug in the processing algorithm.
I now have confidence in using the genesis block time stamp as the exact marker for when Litecoin came into existence. This is exciting because it allows anyone to use all the data that is available to describe that is going on. All the houses come into play, the rising sign, the midheaven, everything.
Here is the birth chart for Litecoin.
Here is the time:
GMT: Friday, October 7, 2011 7:31:05 AM
Your time zone: Friday, October 7, 2011 12:31:05 AM GMT-07:00 DST
Special note: The birth location is also important and must be considered during the investigation. I found no reason to question what I found on the Beyond Binary website with regards to the location being Union City, California. There information aligns to what we know about the founder and the early history of the coin.
Would love to hear any argument that can defend a different time as the birth time for Litecoin.
I would love to run some personalized astrology reports just for you. Please consider joining the Mahala’s Astrology Community by becoming a One Year Subscriber. Keep in mind that when you support us by becoming a community member, you benefit directly. It’s a win-win situation.

Here is a video update for Community Members.
In the video, I show the layout of the planets for the eclipse that is happening today (into tomorrow) followed by a request for community members to send me the location of where they were on their last birthday. I can’t run a Solar Return Report for you until you’ve done this.
For those of you that have sent me this information, I show you how to log in to the website so you can view your reports.
Also, there are a few people that still haven’t gotten through the registration process. If you bought a subscription and you haven’t heard from me, it’s probably because my email has ended up in your junk folder. Thus, please send me an email so we can get the process started (and completed).
Lastly, I added a “Current Planetary Positions” widget to the side bar on the website. It displays the current location of the planets when you visit the website.
I hope you’re all having a great Eclipse!
