posted by Lynn Hayes

More about the Pluto Triad

posted by Lynn Hayes

Two astrobloggers whom I hold in high esteem have quoted my ponderings on the “tripartite nature of Pluto” including Eris and Ceres. Their comments are really wonderful and help to expand this concept. From Jeffrey comes this beautifully written story […]

Owen Wilson and Commitment Conflicts

posted by Lynn Hayes

You can tell Owen Wilson is unusual the first time you see him in a film. Shaggy hair, crooked nose: he doesn’t look like your everyday film star. And even though the parts he plays are typically the sophomoric doofus, […]

Astrological financial news

posted by Lynn Hayes

The opposition from Saturn to Neptune was expected to decrease the supply of oil (Saturn is “dry” and Neptune is “wet”) causing oil prices to rise, but the addition of Jupiter’s expansive properties (in a square to Neptune) has boosted […]

Andrew Harvey’s Dark Night of the Soul

posted by Lynn Hayes

Art by Larian While I was on vacation I happened on a radio interview with Andrew Harvey, a mystic and Shakespearean scholar who believes as many do that the earth is heading for some troubled times. I was very impressed […]

Keith Olberman tells it like it is

posted by Lynn Hayes

Keith Olbermann, our generation’s Edward R. Murrow, lets Bush have it with a scathing comment in tonight’s newcast.

The Birth of Al Qaeda

posted by Lynn Hayes

Philip Brown has an interesting article about the birth of Al Qaeda that started me thinking. Philip uses the date of August 11, 1988 as the date for his chart; however, the book I just read by CNN’s terrorism expert […]

The Sharks are Circling

posted by Lynn Hayes

As noted here a few days ago, President Bush is having a major planetary crisis in terms of his relationships. Saturn with its tests and challenges is affecting Venus in his chart, creating limitations and restrictions in his relationships with […]

Planetary news this week

posted by Lynn Hayes

Venus in Virgo squares off with Pluto over the next few days, creating potential crises in relationships (Venus) as issues that may have been buried are dredged up by Pluto. However, the sextile (60 degrees) between Saturn and Mercury will […]

Happy Birthday Libra!

posted by Lynn Hayes

Art by Thomas Hamann The Sun entered Libra yesterday (see yesterday’s article for the connection between Libra and the Autumn Equinox). The sign of the Scales, Libra is the sign that seeks balance, harmony, truth and beauty above all else. […]

Autumn Equinox and the Tropical/Sidereal Zodiacs

posted by Lynn Hayes

(I’ll write more on Libra later or tomorrow). The Sun entered Libra just before midnight EST last night, marking the Autumnal Equinox. As written in my earlier post, the Equinox this year follows just hours after the New Moon Eclipse, […]

The Astrology of Grey’s Anatomy

posted by Lynn Hayes

The twelve astrological signs represent twelve archetypes of personality, and representations of these archetypes can be found virtually everywhere. The television show Grey’s Anatomy, which I’m embarrassed to say I watch religiously each week and which premiered its second season […]

Another great new astrology blog

posted by Lynn Hayes

Astrotalk is a really interesting new blog from the UK. Here’s a tidbit: Since 1993 we have been in a rare period in which all three outer planet pairs – Uranus-Neptune, Uranus-Pluto and Neptune-Pluto – have been in the waxing […]

Solar eclipse, New Moon and Autumnal Equinox

posted by Lynn Hayes

photo by Tony Howell We are currently in the dark phase of the Moon just before the New Moon cycle begins at the conjunction of the Sun and Moon on September 22. This New Moon has some exceptional characteristics: Besides […]

Rumi on Saturn/Neptune

posted by Lynn Hayes

If the opposition from Saturn to Neptune at 17 degrees Leo/Aquarius is affecting a sensitive point in your birthchart you may find yourself feeling destabilized as the pressure to contract and give form (Saturn) conflicts with Neptune’s pull to dissolve […]

Headline: Lies Provoke Riot in Hungary

posted by Lynn Hayes

Why does this not happen in the US? I guess the difference is that in Hungary they admitted the lies. And the fact that as long as Americans are leading comfortable lives they are less willing to risk that comfort […]

Links

posted by Lynn Hayes

There’s some good stuff out there for your reading pleasure: Elsa is running a series of articles on the Saturn/Neptune opposition. I particularly like this: “You will see your fears dissolve, but before that happens you’re going to have to […]

Spinach: The New Flu

posted by Lynn Hayes

The unfolding drama of our lives is a magical mystery tour, which is why we can’t predict the future. Astrologers were pretty much in agreement that the Saturn/Neptune opposition (where the trials and tribulations of Saturn are confused by the […]

Current placement of Eris

posted by Lynn Hayes

Several people have asked where Eris is now: Retrograde at 21 degrees Aries 5 minutes. Just to give you an idea how slowly it moves, Eris will won’t advance from 21 degrees Aries into 22 degrees until 2013. One way […]

from the advice column – a difficult transit of Pluto

posted by Lynn Hayes

From time to time I’ll post a Q&A that might have relevance to others. Because Pluto has been making a square to the Uranus/Pluto conjunction of those born between 1963 and 1967 I thought this might be helpful for them […]

Rambling thoughts on Eris

posted by Lynn Hayes

Jill posted some interesting links on Discordianism which is evidently a quasi-pagan pseudo religion or a quasi-pseudo pagan religion, I can’t tell which. It may in fact be little more than a joke. Although this religion evidently began in the […]

Mars and Mercury in Libra bring all kinds of dialogue

posted by Lynn Hayes

There are some interesting events in the news that seem to tie in with the conjunction of Mars (aggression) and Mercury (communication) which are both in the sign of Libra where they seem to be opening new lines of communication. […]

The astrology of Eris, the newest planet

posted by Lynn Hayes

Along with the elevation to Planethood of 2003 UB313 (formerly known as Xena) now comes an official name: Eris, named after the Greek goddess that set off the Trojan war by throwing the golden apple into the circle of goddesses […]

Greetings from Mount Olympus!!

posted by Lynn Hayes

(Washington, that is.) I can totally see why the Greek gods chose to live in the highest mountains – the stark majesty of these places are just incredible. We have seen things of such a tremendous scale over the past […]

More on September 11 conspiracy

posted by Lynn Hayes

From Tim Boucher comes this gem. First Tim quotes the White House website as saying that the terrorism we face today springs from several different sources, one of which is “subcultures of conspiracy and misinformation.” Tim responds: Mark my words: […]

A detailed look at fall astrological events

posted by Lynn Hayes

Dan Ciubotaru has an interesting astrology blog from Romania, and he has taken an extremely detailed look at the planetary configurations for September 24 as a significant date to watch. September 24 is within the shadow of the New Moon […]

Edgar Cayce on Planetary Reincarnation

posted by Lynn Hayes

“Ascension” by Juan Carlos Garcia I found this article about Edgar Cayce and astrology linked to the Astrology Weekly forum. I am particularly interested in the comments about the afterlife realms: Reality is multi-dimensional. We are multi-dimensional beings who exist […]

9-11 Conspiracy Theories and the Saturn/Neptune Opposition

posted by Lynn Hayes

Five years ago today, America witnessed the greatest attack ever experienced on its own soils. Five years ago a seed of conspiracy and distrust was planted that is now bearing fruit as Saturn begins its first of a series of […]

Mt. St. Helens: the Pluto/Ceres connection?

posted by Lynn Hayes

Rich and I are riding back from a visit to the Mt. St. Helens volcano, giving me a chance to catch up on my blogging. It was a powerful experience to witness firsthand the devastation imposed by nature, and still […]

The End of Tony Blair

posted by Lynn Hayes

With Gemini rising (an appearance of flexibility and adaptability) and a twelfth house Sun (showing an individual who prefers his real agenda to remain hidden), it’s no wonder that Tony Blair has been under criticism throughout his career for dishonesty, […]

Martian news this week

posted by Lynn Hayes

Mars entered Libra yesterday as I began my vacation. You would think that Mars ( the god of war and aggression), would become the diplomat when in the sign of the scales, but you would be wrong. The fullest expression […]

Steve Irwin and Suri Cruise

posted by Lynn Hayes

One of the coolest things about the astrology blog world is the fact that we are all so different – each one with our own point of view and own voice. I’ve just found Gryphon Astrology from Nina Gryphon, which […]

Jung’s Quaternity and Alchemical Transformation

posted by Lynn Hayes

I’ve just found a great site called the Book of Thoth thanks to a link from Astrococktail. (Thoth is the Egyptian god of wisdom, and many believe that Thoth was actually an Atlantean priest who brought the secrets of magic […]

Life is a Rhythmic Dance

posted by Lynn Hayes

Beyonce and the Yod: Destiny’s Child

National Ledger has my profile of Beyonce Knowles up on their site (turn on your popup blocker! I’ve snipped part of the article here, you can read it there if you’re interested. But her chart has some fascinating configurations which […]

Lunar eclipses, dragons, and the Nodes of the Moon

posted by Lynn Hayes

Lunar eclipses occur when the Full Moon (Moon opposing the Sun) occurs close to the nodes of the moon (the point at which the sun’s path and moon’s path meet). Molly at North Node.com has a lovely animated graphic that […]

Eclipse!!

posted by Lynn Hayes

We’re heading into the shadow of the Full Moon which will be a partial lunar eclipse. (Although the Full Moon doesn’t occur until September 7, its effects will begin to make themselves known in the next day or two.) There […]

Saturn/Neptune, William Lilly and the Great Fire of London

posted by Lynn Hayes

340 years ago today, the Great Fire of London burned down two-thirds of that great city. (Details and anecdotes of the fire itself can be found at this fantastic site.) The renowned Renaissance astrologer William Lilly had predicted this fire […]

Pentagon Moves Toward Monitoring Media

posted by Lynn Hayes

I may be wrong, but “monitoring media” to me sounds like a lot like censorship. Is this the kind of free democracy we’re trying to spread to the middle east? WASHINGTON (AP) – The U.S. command in Baghdad is seeking […]

Skywatch posted & new links added

posted by Lynn Hayes

Skywatch for September is now posted here, including information on the upcoming eclipses. More details on the eclipses will be posted here of course as they unfold. I’ve also had a chance to visit the sites of my frequent visitors […]
