I've had Uranus in my sixth for ages, and man, it's a pain in the ass.
Neptune will be passing through Pisces
for several more years,
so the effect is certinaly NOT yet
visible or clear.
Neptune’s function is to erode
your hold on reality in the area
in which it falls in your horoscope,
encouraging you to surrender
your previous fixations on
what you think reality is all about.
No sense claiming
it is only your spirituality emerging.
Although that is true,
Neptune usually also reflects
your deepest, escapist, fantasy craving
to blur your pain
with distraction after distraction.
It can also seduce you to follow
your most distorted projections
about what you are doing here,
why you are here and
whereyou are going.
It is your soulful dedication,
and marks the period when you must
fling yourself forward,
allow yourself to be carried
by what you are convinced is happening,
only to learn later that something
utterly different was actually transpiring.
It can never be second guessed or figured out,
mianly because it describes
the many sides of a prism
that can only be viewed
in many dimensions at once.
To even attempt such a perception
we are forced to give up
our vision of a three-dimenional world
and acknowledge the fact that
there aare many levels and posisbilities
occurring at the same time and space.
The western mind balks
when challenged to think prismatically.
Our fear of being fooled,
along with our desperate longing
to not be considered crazy,
creates a resistance to the subtlety
that lurks behind Neptune’s inexorable
unraveling of everything we thought to be true.
It invariably presents an existential crisis,
forever hinting that something initangible
and just out of reach is going on,
demanding your absolute faith
but promising nothing in return.
It suggests ecstasy
and delivers disappointment,
causes abject despair,
only to follow by manifesingt a miracle.
It often shows up in your life
represented by people
who are there but not there,
people who are not all there,
mad musicians and sad-eyed poets,
wild-eyed mystics and magicians,
pathetic junkies and sexy hustlers,
humble healers and fraudulent clerics,
It’s the semi waking state
that makes you swear
aliens were in your room last night.
The first sip of the second martini
when even the sweaty,
It’s a voice you cannot be sure
comes from the mouth of God
or the mental patient
you run into on the street.
It usually denotes
your longing for something to be true,
whether it is or not.
It’s the ability to find beauty in ugliness
and to venerate the fiction
that is life.
In that sense it is the most
It is the sand in the hourglass
that measures the greatest illusion of all
It’s the long shot that comes in first,
provided you don’t bet on it.
Wherever you have it transiting
in your Sun or Rising sign,
throw the book away and accept
a force that is not a force,
a wave that is not a wave,
a vibration that is not a vibration,
a message that is not a message,
It’s an elbow in your cosmic ribs
to wakeup and start dreaming.
ONLY WHEN YOU UNIFY
CAN YOU SOLVE
THE MYSTERY OF NEPTUNE
And as for the horoscopes....
No matter what sort of wily, crafty,
keen-eyed, survivalist you are,
you can be just as much of a sucker
for love as the rest of us fools.
Although romantic love is probably
the greatest illusion of all,
when Neptune moves forward
in your whole sign fifth house,
you need an adventure,
wherever it leads.
It may not be age or
life condition appropriate,
so it may have to remain
in the realm of fiction
or spiritual yearning.
You have to blind your eyes
to a whole lot
(kids on drugs etc),
but you are challenged
to allow heart to rule.
Okay, so I've been told I go for this. Or shall we say, went for this since those days of hormones are over. To which I was all, "FORMER bad boys, thanks." I don't put up well with addictions or anyone going to jail, but god knows my exes ah....Really Got Around and I certainly heard some wacky stories of shit they got up to in the teen years here and there. Meanwhile, I stay out of jail and am generally sober (of course, that's because I can get drunk on an empty stomach in less than a half hour).
So why is that shit? Well, lookie here.
"I’ve had a look through the birth charts of clients and friends who have found themselves in the habit of getting involved with these “bad boys,” and it’s hard to see a definitive astrological cause. However, two patterns do seem to stand out.
1) The “bad boys” in question seem to have major placements that fall in the Twelfth House of the women they get involved with.
2) The women in question seem to have stronger-than-average Mars placements."
Hmmm. Well, I probably qualify for the latter one. I can definitely say that my favorite old celebrity crush qualified for the former, though I wouldn't say that anyone I actually dated IRL did.
"Most astrologers accept as fact that Saturn, the Greater Malefic, located in the natal 10th house of fame, status, and career indicates a problematic career, infamy, or a public fall from grace. We will attempt to determine whether this is in fact the case, whether there are exceptions to this rule, and if so, when do exceptions occur."
I have this aspect and I did not think it was thaaaaaaaaaat bad.
Her conclusion is that "As is often the case, the truism of “Saturn in the 10th = disaster” is only partly right. It is only the case if Saturn lacks dignity and receives no easy aspects from benefic planets. If you have Saturn dignified in the 10th house with no bad aspects, you can probably relax."
Well, mine is in detriment with both trines and squares. I guess I will have mostly disaster.
This is an interesting writeup on the topic.
"Under Leo, Saturn is brought into the spotlight, into the limelight and is forced into doing something that Saturn abhors generally, and that is being the centre of attention and being “fun”. In analogy, Saturn in Leo is the “old man” who takes to the stage, who acts and is given both fame and fortune. Saturn naturally is alien to the world of glamour, of stars and of attention, so when Saturn is asked by Leo to be “the star”, to show off, to be an individual he responds by doing what he always does: taking it seriously. Leo Saturn must act but is not spontaneous, he must be an individual but at his age, it is a serious thing. The result then is that Saturn looks rather comical in his position, for his placement in Leo is that of being the one that everyone looks up to and wants to be because he is in essence the “hero”, but the way he goes about being hero is matter of fact, duty, and he will save the world, and say at the end “I´m just doing my job”."
or: why you are compelled to act.
Pluto doesn't mess around.
When it first hits whatever house Capricorn rules
in your Sun and Rising Sign charts,
It wraps gently on your door.
It politely invites you on a trip
to a place you’re supposed to go now.
It gently requests that you welcome the change.
You have no idea where it is leading.
You can’t see around the bend.
Very nicely it suggests a major
you need to accept
in order to grow and evolve
during this incarnation.
Many folks just don’t answer the door.
They pretend they are not home,
mainly because a change of this nature
is a scary challenge
to all relationships and projects.
It also demands you become something
you’ve always been scared of becoming.
The longer you resist,
the louder Pluto knocks,
until it drives a sixteen wheeler truck
through your life.
Whatever decisions and actions you take
and the paths you choose
will take you long-term
in a new direction.
So here we are.
Pluto has entered
the second decan of Capricorn.
Below find which way it is pointing.
Outcome? Unknown at this time,
but whaeever you do,
don’t wait for the truck."
As for this week's horoscopes: Taurus's basically says not to lie--which I don't generally do for the reasons it says, so it's a big duh to me. But Scorpio....
"It’s both great and lousy
to be alone,
but you’re probably thinking
it's better to beon your own
than depend on people who screw up
or drop out just when you need them."
Hah, yeah. I have been thinking the exact same thing.
On a related note, this looks like a good website to talk about the whole Pluto thing. In my case:
Pluto in Capricorn impacting your 3rd house. You will move into this time of Pluto in Capricorn by bringing forward information that you have to speak or to write and to bring the Truth forward in ways that may not be the most popular amidst a society that still thinks the world is flat. The Pluto explosion cracks open the world of Truth that has landed in your lap. You are here to bring this information forward and you are moving into a time when you have your calling come into reality. You may have passed the point of retirement or you may just be graduating from college, either way, the impetus to bring information forward has now reached your venue. No longer will the false information and lies exist, you have lived through the experience as Pluto has finished it's time in Sagittarius in which the choices of Money or Truth showed the realities of the choices. You are moving into a time in which your business and your career will be a direct response of the situations and events that you have experienced. You are moving into a time in which you will speak up, you will say what needs to be said and your communication will echo through the halls of the old structures that chose money rather than truth. You are here to say what no one else will say, but you can't turn your back on the information that you now have sitting in your lap. The handwriting of destiny on the wall pushes you to grab your passion, your voice and speak up. The energy comes from deep in your being, you know that you are walking into your purpose, this is what you have come here to do. Regardless of the age or generation you come from, your message encompasses a universal message of Truth, one that crosses over the generations and becomes the Truth that is vital to everyone.
This sounds....spookily accurate, I gotta admit. Sounds like the most recent NaNoWriMo stuff I have been working on.
- The motivations and goals of your Sun need to be satisfied. How does your Sun like to be creatively fulfilled? What represents a deal maker or a deal breaker for you?
- The house in which your Sun is shows the area of life you can look to- a spotlight on your natural talents. Sun in the 5th? Creativity abounds. Sun in the 6th? How and where can you be of service?
- What about the planet ruling your Sun? Where is that?
- Are there any planets linking to your Sun or its’ ruler that can help or hinder its’ activity?
- Check out the sign and element on the Midheaven, or cusp point of the 10th house. This is your career zone. It shows how you like to be seen by the world, your attitude to public recognition and the extent to which career goals matter to you.
- The planet ruling your 10th house is your “career planet”. What sign and house is that in? The placement of this adds further information regarding your natural talents and inclinations.
- What other planets are in the 10th? What can they tell you about your career?
Activities or professions associated with the 7th house: anything associated with marriage (arranging it, being in it or mediating the end of it), anything which matches people with other people (for jobs, relationships, causes or tennis), anything which involves compromise or negotiating an agreeable (or semi agreeable) outcome.
Leo on the cusp of the 10th house (Scorpio Rising)
Ok, by now you know the drill. Pride and vitality is associated with wherever Leo happens to be. On the 10th (or Midheaven), you are proud of your ambitions, the achievements in your public life and the image you present to the world. No matter what your career- and that includes anything from President to Stay at Home Mum to lobbying for better access for disabled kids to business analyst- you need to shine (and be seen to shine) in order to feel great about yourself.
You have natural leadership potential and charisma and prefer to be in charge- this allows you to bring great energy to your role- whatever that is. You need to be recognized for your accomplishments.
So as you probably know by now, I have been wigging the hell out at the idea of Uranus going through my sixth house. (One particularly panicky example can be found here.) I have naturally assumed that I am going to get my ass canned, since I am low man on the totem pole at work, the universe probably wants me to move the fuck on already, etc.
So far that hasn't happened--I have been temporarily working my job (which hasn't had much going on in summer) AND another job for the summer, at least until they decide to hire someone else or whatever to handle it. That one has been going very well and my second supervisor totally loves me these days.
Well, I got bad news and good news. The bad news is that the thing I work on at my regular job, that I have been doing for 10 years, is being discontinued. Pretty much because the vendor of the product has been flushing down the toilet and not doing their jobs correctly/at all. And since I am low woman on the totem pole, realistically speaking they wouldn't need me any more to do what I do.
However...would I be interested in working in another related group instead? Does some similar things to what I do? Same pay grade so I wouldn't be laid off or losing pay? By all means, let me at it! Sounds like it has more variety going on as well. More public-service-y (I will miss being in the "quiet office", but not my location within said office), but by now I am kinda used to that given the temporary job. So it's all going to be fine.
I am pleased that so far Uranus hasn't been a total streak of "you are constantly unemployed and can't get a job to save your life for seven years." So far, anyway. Changes at work, fine, as long as it's going my way.
