Oh My Stars

matthew-currie-astrology-galactic centerNASA recently released the first image of a black hole ever captured, and it was a huge achievement. Many of you may have read the story and noted that it was in the constellation of Virgo, and may have wondering if it has any astrological influence. Personally, I doubt it. But let me tell you about my all-time favorite black hole — one that does have a distinct astrological effect.

At the center of our galaxy lies Sagittarius A, a gigantic, massive black hole. In Western astrology terms, it lies at about 27 degrees Sagittarius. I say “about” because, as with everything we call a fixed star in astrology, it tends to move (precess) at a rate of about one degree every 72 years. That, and the thing is so huge that even though it’s about 100,000 light-years away, if you could see it in the sky its energy would take up more then just the usual dot of space that other stars do. It has the equivalent mass of four million Suns

Mind blown a little yet? It will be. That’s what it’s like when you start learning about The Galactic Center.


There was a time when Earth was thought to be the center of the universe. Science demonstrated otherwise, and as you can imagine this is a significant let-down for many people. But later on we discovered that although the Sun is the center of our solar system, it isn’t the center of the universe either. Our entire solar system orbits The Galactic Center about once every 230 million years. And as it turns out, not even our galaxy is the center of the universe. It’s debatable as to whether or not the Universe even has a center!

So what can the astrological influence of the Galactic Center be, other than to make us feel cosmically insignificant? Well, in a sense, that’s exactly the point of the Galactic Center… but in a good way.

Find 27 degrees Sagittarius in your birth chart. What House does that fall in? Odds are good that when it comes to the matters of that House, you may have some unusual beliefs, or you may feel that you are connected to some larger, unearthly force there — and you may very well be right about that.

When planets transit across The Galactic Center, they become energized in a new and unique way. Don’t believe me? Take a look at the world as it was in 2008, as Pluto passed over The Galactic Center… and take a look now. Both personally and with the world around you, what has changed? I’ll let you answer that for yourself.

Also, in my experience, if you have any personal planets in a close major aspect to The Galactic Center? Odds are good that you’re a fan of science fiction or fantasy. Fun fact!

So fear not that you are insignificant. You are just as much a part of the Dance Of Reality as everyone else, and that’s a good thing. The Universe is still keeping watch over you, ultimately in a caring away. If that’s not one of the big takeaways from astrology, I don’t know what it is.
