Mars square Saturn

posted by Lynn Hayes

Although this aspect didn’t culminate until yesterday, it’s been in effect for some time as part of the Grand Cross so it hasn’t received the attention from me that it deserved. Mars square Saturn is often described as “driving with […]

The Secret Moon

posted by Lynn Hayes

Beth Owl’s daughter reminds me: By the way, as I’ve been discussing on my website, this New Moon is also a second New Moon in one month, as rare as Blue Moons, but not as widely known (since by definition, […]

Update on the Grand Cross

posted by Lynn Hayes

(For more information, see these past articles discussing the Grand Cross of Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune in effect for the next few weeks.) For the past month or so, four planets have been dancing in a “Grand Cross” formation, […]

Merry Christmas and a Cool Yule!

posted by Lynn Hayes

Surprising discoveries about Uranus

posted by Lynn Hayes

In astrology, Uranus symbolizes radical change and eccentric behavior, it is the revolutionary of the zodiac. Astronomers have long known that Uranus possesses unusual features such as the fact that it is tipped nearly on its side relative to the […]

Venus turns retrograde and conjuncts Chiron

posted by Lynn Hayes

Venus, traveling through Aquarius, turns retrograde on December 24. When Venus is retrograde we are often forced to pay more attention to our dealing with others and our own sense of connectedness and how well we manage our connections with […]

Bush Update and this month’s Grand Cross

posted by Lynn Hayes

Thanks to Jill for posting this article by Peter Daou from Salon about the dynamics of a Bush scandal. This corresponds very precisely with the Grand Cross occurring right now between Mars (aggression), Saturn (law/rules/restriction), Neptune (confusion and illusion) and […]

Sun enters Capricorn today

posted by Lynn Hayes

Happy birthday Capricorns! Those born when the Sun was in Capricorn are ruled by Saturn and tend to take their responsibilities very seriously. The mission of Capricorn is to master the material world. In doing so, they may face many […]

Born on the Cusp?

posted by Lynn Hayes

Happy Birthday Brad Pitt!!

posted by Lynn Hayes

Every now and then I have to use astrology for fun, like to peer behind the curtain and find out what in the world is going on with Brad Pitt. Taking up with Angelina Jolie, admittedly probably the most fascinating […]

The end may be near for Karl Rove

Full moon this morning

posted by Lynn Hayes

The Full Moon occurs when the Moon opposes the Sun (they are 180 degrees apart); symbolically the instinctive emotions represented by the Moon are illuminated by the more rational light of the Sun. This is a time when creative energies […]

Explosions, earthquakes, executions, race riots

posted by Lynn Hayes

Explosions in an oil depot near London and in New Jersey, earthquakes in the Kashmir Valley, Australia and Afghanistan, execution of Tookie Williams, and race riots in Sydney Australia. Disturbing, but not surprising during this Grand Cross period. The tension […]

Mercury back in Sagittarius

posted by Lynn Hayes

…where it will remain until January 4th. Mercury first passed into Sag on October 30 and remained there until it retrograded back into the intensity of Scorpio back on November 25. With Mercury in Sagittarius, communication (Mercury) will be of […]

Tookie Williams loses last appeal

posted by Lynn Hayes

The story of Tookie Williams could be my own. Tookie Williams and I both came of age during the era where Power to the People was the rallying cry, where women needed men like fish needed bicycles, and where Black […]

Mars turned direct today!

posted by Lynn Hayes

Mars has been in retrograde motion since October, and the Grand Cross alignment has been slowly but surely working its way into place. Only Saturn now remains retrograde, and the energy of the Grand Cross is beginning to intensify. With […]

Stephen Colbert joins the war on Christmas

Happy Birthday Jim Morrison!

posted by Lynn Hayes

The death of Jim Morrison was one of the first really sad events of my young life. As a young and lonely wanna-be hippie, his music took me to places beyond my reality that really did open the doors of […]

What’s in store for TomDeLay?

posted by Lynn Hayes

Middle Earth Journal has a good story today about Tom DeLay’s situation, inspiring me to take a look at his astrological situation. DeLay is an Aries – ruled by the god of war. Aries are forceful, dynamic, and can be […]

Chiron in Aquarius

posted by Lynn Hayes

The synchronicity between the names given to planets by astronomers and the way they operate in astrology is one of the great mysteries of the heavens. In ancient times the astronomers WERE the astrologers, and as they observed the planet […]

Mars opposes Jupiter tonight

posted by Lynn Hayes

When aggressive Mars confronts the king of the gods, watch for blowhards to blow even harder. Mars is retrograde in Taurus, the sign of economic and material security. During the retrograde portion of Mars’ journey, it is gathering together material […]

The honeymoon is finally over

posted by Lynn Hayes

It’s about time. Evidently, administration sources say Cheney’s role in formulating policy is over. “Cheney’s influence has waned not only because of bad chemistry, but because the White House no longer formulates policy,” another source said. Any astrologer could have […]

One last look backward

posted by Lynn Hayes

Mercury is “stationary direct” today, meaning it has slowed down to a near stop before making its turn into forward motion tomorrow evening. Because astrology views planets from our perspective on earth, occasionally the planets appear to be moving backwards, […]
