The single subject area I deal with the most when doing a reading for clients is relationships. Sure, family relationships and boss/co-worker relationships often come up, but there’s nothing like romance to send someone to consult with an astrologer.
Facebook — where we all get our news from since the collapse of real-world society somewhere around 2010 — is abuzz with the news that our Solar System is probably home to an undiscovered planet roughly the size of Neptune. As a long time fan of astronomy, I am both delighted and unmoved by this news story, but as an astrologer I am actively annoyed… not by the planet, but by the reaction of many astrologers and astrology enthusiasts I’ve seen out there.
It appears some unscrupulous web site has been pointing traffic to our hidden landing page for paid charts, without informing surfers that we charge for our charts. As a result we’ve gotten some rather nasty messages when we’ve informed people these charts aren’t free. Some of these people seem to think we’re fishing for email addresses or something, and that is NOT the case. We don’t maintain a mailing list at this time, nor have we for several years. The only way we would do that is strictly voluntary opt-in, but right now we don’t market that way at all. The only email you should ever get from the “astrology.ca” domain is a response to some inquiry you make of us, such as when you purchase horoscopes for your web site, or a personal reading. We don’t do unsolicited email. If you get any unsolicited email that appears to come from our domain, please let us know.
We have suspended our chart service through the web for the time being, until we track down the offending page(s) or find a way to hide them better from unscrupulous competitors.
If you are interested in a free computerized chart, please visit AstroDienst (Note – We have no relationship with this site).
Dear Astrology.ca: What does the alignment of Moon, Venus, Mars, and Jupiter mean?
There is just such an alignment currently happening, though the placements are not close enough to be astrologically significant right at the moment. In my experience, you need planets to be within 3-5 degrees of each other to consider this a conjunction (other astrologers may beg to differ, to each their own). These planets right now range from Jupiter at 18′ Virgo to the Moon at 13′ Libra.
In a natal chart, It would depend a lot on what house these planets are transiting in, and what aspect if any natal planets the stellium (a collection of three or more planets in one sign or house) makes to other planets in both the natal chart and the transiting chart. All that analysis is one reason an astrological reading is so costly! (laugh). It takes a lot of time to nail all that stuff down, and you can never be sure you haven’t missed something.
Without that information, I wouldn’t be able to say where, if at all, something might manifest. Generally speaking such an aspect would be fortunate in love, romance, possibly in money. Venus and Jupiter are “lucky” while Mars brings energy and the Moon sensitivity. The Virgo/Libra energy makes healthcare, relationships, daily work and income possible beneficiaries of a boost of creative and positive energy right now. Where this falls in your chart would give an indicator of the area of life most likely to benefit.
It’s a powerful alignment, regardless. If you would like to have a chart calculated, you can get one free of charge at Astrodienst. Or,you can purchase a chart with a computer-generated interpretation from Astrology.ca by clicking here.
Did you know that planets and stars actually give off music? Although space is a virtual vacuum, this does not mean there is no sound in space. Sounds still exists in the form of electromagnetic vibrations and can be detected using specially designed instruments developed by NASA.
Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party’s election to a majority government on Monday, has inspired me to post some work I’ve done on Canadian history over the years. Transiting Mars made a conjunction to Jupiter in tropical Virgo two days prior to the Canadian federal election on Monday, October 19, 2015.
“If you don’t feel like cleaning out, clearing out and getting organized now you are either cleaned, cleared and organized or immune to planetary energies.
At the risk of offending the delicate sensibilities of the anti-astrology crowd (why are they reading my posts, anyway?) having Jupiter, Mars and Venus a few degrees away from each other in the “Winter Is Coming” sign of Virgo means the background music of daily life now is “Get Ready ‘Cause Here I Come,” with “I” standing for whatever is headed your way, known and unknown.
Do your best and you’ll be better prepared than if you do nothing. Seems simple because it is but you’d be surprised how many people would rather not think about being prepared because it requires that you think about something “negative” and, this always gets me, they think preparing for something/thinking about it brings it on. Now THAT, not astrology, is superstition.”
I am totally feeling this energy lately. The past month or so, I feel like I have to “get ready” for something, but I don’t know what! I invite you to share your own experiences with this energy on Monte’s Facebook page. Lots of other people are feeling it too. – Brandi Jasmine
Nodal Shift – Mean Node Virgo/Pisces October 11th 2015 – April 27th 2017 by Cosmic*Intelligence*Agency
On Oct 10 at 1:53 am UT, the mean nodes shift focus from the Libra/Aries polarity to, Virgo and Pisces, this shift comes 11 hours after Mercury turns direct after a recent retrograde, conjunct the North Node at zero Libra, adding to the shift placing huge attention in a shift of focus at zero degrees of a cardinal sign. Cardinal signs are the dynamic change agents in astrology charts, and this shift this week, will be more significant than you may think, as the past 19 months take on the next season of growth and progress. The nodes take 18.6 years to move around the zodiac, and spend 1.86 months in each sign and moving backward in zodiac 1 degree every 18.6 days.
As the Moon progresses through the highly emotive sign of Scorpio, she meets up with the asteroid Asteria this afternoon, between 1pm and 5 pm (AEST). Asteria is the archetype of “the starry one”, Titan Goddess of the darker or night time aspect of magic and oracles.
