Obama’s announcement chart

posted by Lynn Hayes

Pluto in Capricorn and the Eroding Infrastructure

posted by Lynn Hayes

One of the things I believe we’ll be facing over the next few years as Pluto travels through Capricorn is the erosion of the structures that support our human lives on the planet. Bridges, tunnels, buildings – all are ruled […]

Dharmaruci on Obama as Medicine Man

posted by Lynn Hayes

Dharmaruci evidently hasn’t been swept away by Obamania as I have, so his post on Obama as “The Medicine Man” is a clearer-headed one than any you will find in this column: The man creates a very strong impression on […]

Sunday Inspiration: Feeding the Wolf

posted by Lynn Hayes

With transiting Mars bearing down on my own Mars which is already being pressured by Pluto, I found this a wonderful bit of wisdom: One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. […]

A rigorous astrology study – another “horoscope” rant

posted by Lynn Hayes

Here is a questionnaire from a sincere questioner who would like to determine whether astrology has any validity, but their only knowledge of astrology is from the “astrology” columns on the comics page. The only problem is – sun sign […]

The Eclipse and the unmasking of John McCain

posted by Lynn Hayes

Last night’s eclipse was spectacular! We had a thick blanket of clouds here, but the clouds parted long enough to expose the eclipsed Moon through a smoky light. I wish I had decent nighttime photography equipment. Of course it kept […]

The Millennial Generation

posted by Lynn Hayes

We’ve been talking in these pages about the generational impacts of this year’s presidential election, including the early boomers (Pluto in Leo), late boomers and generation X (Pluto in Virgo) and generation Y (Pluto in Libra). Each group as a […]

The Candidates and the Lunar Eclipse

The Pesky Inconjunct and Quincunx

posted by Lynn Hayes

Many people have commented ever since the eclipse about the heightened rage, anger and arguments in the air. Jill wrote asking “Is Aries in Mars or something”? Evidently the political blogosphere had heated up with diatribes and blogroll deletions, and […]

The Return of Mars Pluto and the second Eclipse

posted by Lynn Hayes

Mars is preparing for its third and final opposition to Pluto where it tends to foment rage and inspire explosions, and one might think the opposition has already happened. School shootings, mall shootings, shootings in the city council – people […]

What your Valentine wants!

Pluto in Capricorn and the Surveillance State

Predictions for Year of the Rat

posted by Lynn Hayes

There are a lot of things you can learn in the astrological world, but keeping track of basic Western astrology is about as much as I can manage. Still, synchronicity is at work everywhere, and Chinese astrology probably is just […]

The Descent of Britney Spears

posted by Lynn Hayes

Quite a few of you have written asking me to give an update on Britney Spears, which you can find at the National Ledger. Britney is going through some difficult planetary cycles, but they are no more intense than the […]

Sunday inspiration for Hope

posted by Lynn Hayes

A new day is dawning… We have been engulfed by the politics of fear for too long, where 9/11 was used as a way to scare up votes instead of a way to bring us together around a common purpose […]

From the Advice Column: What’s wrong with my mom?

posted by Lynn Hayes

I realized I hadn’t posted anything from the advice column for quite some time. I’m very interested in the way health issues manifest in the birthchart, and this was a good example. Q: My mother has been really nervous, lately […]

Pluto in Capricorn: Enough Happiness Already

posted by Lynn Hayes

Capricorn is known for its dour nature and embrace of the difficult, the challenging, and the just plain sad. After all, it is ruled by Saturn whose domain encompasses all of this and worse. So with Pluto having just entered […]

Obama, Early and Late Boomers, and Pluto generations

posted by Lynn Hayes

There are two articles in the latest Newsweek magazine that have inspired posts, so you’ll get one tomorrow about the end of the happiness craze. Today, though, I am excited about Jonathan Alter’s article about the battle between the Early […]

Molly Hall on the New Moon

Elsa on the Bill to Ban Fat Diners

Super Tuesday and the Eclipse

posted by Lynn Hayes

Superbowl Astrology: Quarterback Chic

posted by Lynn Hayes

Sunday inspiration: Trusting the future

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
