Film crew finds DNA of Jesus?

posted by Lynn Hayes

This story falls under lots of categories: Saturn opposing Neptune and destroying the illusion; Pluto in Sagittarius and turning our established theology and religions upside down, and possibly even the end of the Age of Pisces. When Pluto entered Sagittarius, […]

Supernovas and Magnetars

posted by Lynn Hayes

Thanks to Universe Today for this fantastic photo of Supernova 1987A (click photo to enlarge). It’s hard to say whether supernovas contain any astrological symbolism that we can use, but there’s no doubt about the gamma ray energy that is […]

Hillary, Obama and the Saturn Return

posted by Lynn Hayes

Hillary Clinton’s campaign is sniping at former supporters who are flirting with the idea of supporting Barack Obama. Says Arianna Huffington at a campaign event for Obama this week, “It’s like being married, and suddenly you fall in love. You’re […]

Al Franken: He’s good enough, he’s smart enough, and doggone it, people like him!

posted by Lynn Hayes

Jupiter in Sagittarius and the Fear and Greed Index

Astrology and the False Identity

Some things just work.

posted by Lynn Hayes

Recently these pages witnessed a dramatic debate over whether astrology could be or had been proven in the now defunct Skeptics Challenge. (I learned my lesson – as revealed by a commentator, skeptics don’t have an open mind but require […]

War and Saturn/Neptune

posted by Lynn Hayes

A comment from Cathy to the previous post reports: I looked back on previous oppositions between Saturn and Neptune and the wars that were going on then did not end when the aspect ended. Far from it! 1971-72 – Vietnam […]

Saturn/Neptune in the News

posted by Lynn Hayes

Saturn is nearly exactly opposite Neptune now, and there are a lot of qualities to this configuration. Deception (Neptune) is confronted by law (Saturn). The mysterious (Neptune) is being challenged by pragmatism (Saturn). Big Brother (Saturn) wants to spy on […]

Happy Chinese New Year!

posted by Lynn Hayes

This New Moon marks the New Year of the Chinese calendar, and 2007 is the Year of the Golden Pig. In Chinese astrology, each year is represented by twelve different animals with the pig being the final animal in the […]

In preparation for the March eclipse series…

When does the Age of Aquarius start?

posted by Lynn Hayes

“Aquarius” from Eclipse of the Firefly gallery I’ve been surprised to still find writings that fix the beginning of the Age of Pisces at year zero, roughly coinciding with the birth of Jesus, with the Age of Aquarius beginning in […]

Aquarian New Moon

“New Moon over the Atlantic” by Mark Daffey from art.com The New Moon on February 17 links the Sun and the Moon in Aquarius, the sign of idealism, innovation and revolution. Aquarius is the radical, the inventor – it seeks […]

More on the Archway UFO mystery

What is my true sign? A cusp question

Hillary Clinton, Saturn and Chiron

posted by Lynn Hayes

It was almost a year ago that I first profiled Hillary Clinton in these pages: Hillary Clinton’s birthchart shows a strong personality: She has four planets in intense Scorpio, including her Sun, Chiron, Venus and Mercury. Scorpio is an intensely […]

Mercury turns retrograde tomorrow night.

posted by Lynn Hayes

Although for me it won’t make much difference, I’m sort of getting used to the kind of technological craziness I’ve been experiencing lately with the square of Jupiter to Uranus and evidently I’m not alone. Although this aspect made its […]

What I learned from the Skeptics Challenge

posted by Lynn Hayes

For the past few years I have written to anyone who wrote a post or an article debunking astrology offering to do a free reading for them so that they can try it for themselves before making a judgement on […]

Valentine’s Day Love Triangle

UFO sighting in the UK

posted by Lynn Hayes

There seems to be a rash of UFO sightings over the past couple of months (Jupiter/Uranus anyone??) but this is a big one: PEOPLE screamed and cars came to a halt when dozens of mysterious lights hovered thousands of feet […]

Anna Nicole Smith: Another case of Chiron/Uranus/Pluto

posted by Lynn Hayes

Plenty is being said right now about the death of Anna Nicole Smith, and I’m not going to add to the frenzy of media coverage and obsession over this sad creature’s life and death. For me the pertinent item of […]

Good and Evil

Robert Wilkinson has a lovely post today on Good and Evil in the birthchart: Our birth charts show us what cycles we’ve set into motion, and what we’re dealing with. All of us are learning to deal with the results […]

The Case of the Astronaut: Narcissism in the Birthchart

posted by Lynn Hayes

Any time someone does something completely bizarre and out of character, it’s always makes me want to look at their astrological chart. Often we have subconscious elements that we are able to keep in the “basement” of our psyche until […]

Science and Multidimensional Reality

posted by Lynn Hayes

From Universe Today: One of the great outstanding questions in science is known as the “theory of everything”. What underlying laws of physics explain the forces we see in nature? Are gravity and electromagnetism the same force? One popular theory […]

Generation Next: The Saturn/Uranus influence

posted by Lynn Hayes

A column by David Brooks the other day intrigued me when he wrote about students he taught at Duke University last fall, calling them “Children of Polarization”: Today’s college students, remember, were born around 1987. They were 2 or 3 […]

Renaissance Astrological Magic

Our friend Ursi once again delights and amazes with this beautiful article on Renaissance astrology and magic which was taken from Christopher Warnock’s excellent site on the subject. Christopher tells us that for Renaissance astrologers, the planets were the link […]

Ryan and Griffin O’Neal

The Skeptics Challenge: Paul responds

posted by Lynn Hayes

Trusting the voice within

posted by Lynn Hayes

Recently I’ve been doing more typed readings. Typically I prefer telephone readings because they’re more interactive, but the typed readings are powerful because there’s no instant feedback, no assurance that I’m on the right path. Just me and the computer […]

View of the Comet from Down Under

Diana shares her experience of Comet McNaught: My first sighting of comet McNaught was with a group of people, all gazing expectantly into the darkening twilight, and it was a little girl who caught first glimpse. And as our eyes […]

Saturn/Neptune and Bird Flu – the panic arrives on schedule

posted by Lynn Hayes

I have to admit I was skeptical when astrologers predicted that the opposition of Saturn and Neptune would bring with it a deadly flu pandemic. The planets rarely act as they are expected to perform, and this was too easy […]

February Skywatch and planetary news this week

An astrological tribute to Molly Ivins, the Radical Virgo

posted by Lynn Hayes

Although I was a fan of Molly Ivins for years, it wasn’t until the Bush administration that her biting yet hilarious wit became a must-read for anyone skeptical of the Bush presidency. Ivins was celebrated for her unconventional and unabashedly […]

Saturn/Neptune: Deflating the illusion

posted by Lynn Hayes

Work entitled “Alchemy” at Mamtaart.com I don’t see how the American public could have been convinced by the Bush White House that the threat from global warming was political, but there certainly is no escaping the reality now according to […]

Goodbye Molly Ivins

posted by Lynn Hayes

Jill says it as well as I could: Molly Ivins can’t do that, can she? Alas, she can. Molly Ivins died far too soon [yesterday] at the age of sixty-two. I’m not sure if we could have made it through […]

Sunday inspiration: Trusting the future
Astrologers have a reputation, which we ourselves and our forbears have propagated, of being able to foretell the future.  If you run a Google search for "Can astrology predict the future," the very first article is from a well-known astrology site titled "Predicting the future with astrology."

Neptune in Pisces and the question of reality
Neptune just slipped back into Pisces where it will remain until 2025.  Neptune's role in the astrological pantheon is to cause us to question where the physical world ends and a more transcendent reality begins.  It therefore rules our spiritual experience, but it can also be confusing and induce
