World Series 2014 Game Three Giants vs. Royals thru an Astrological Lens


This Friday, October 24th. just one day after a momentous Solar Eclipse in Scorpio, Game Three is on tap tonight @ 5:07 PM Pacific for the first pitch. We are now at pivotal Game Three of the World Series in San Francisco with the Royals and Giants tied at one game apiece. I am predicting the Giants Take Game Three and later in this report I will explain why! Of the 56 previous occasions in which the World Series has been tied at a game apiece, the home club is 26-30 in Game 3, winning three of the last five. Pitching for the Giants is veteran right hander Tim Hudson (born July 14, 1975) with a tenacious Sun-Saturn conjunction in cardinal, Cancer and Mars in persistent Taurus. Tonight Hudson is supported by a harmonious trine from these Scorpio planets and bodies: Venus-Sun-Moon-Pallas-Saturn and Ceres. Since all those Scorpio planets are ruled by Mars and Pluto both in the most public of all houses the 10th. The Tim will be making his first World Series start, Tim Hudson is trying to help the Giants gain a 2-1 Series advantage. His control and steadiness will keep the Giants in the game till the middle innings when hopefully the Giants have scored multiple times on singles, doubles and at least one home run.

Before we go into more details about the astrology chart below set for the first pitch, it appears that with Aries rising, there should be lots of explosive action and our share of hits. Even if the game turns out to low scoring at first and appears to be pitcher's duel, there is a coiled feeling that things could break out any time. With Aries rising and Uranus in the first expect the unexpected along with sudden hits and record breaking defensive plays. Speed on the bases will be another factor in the game as will be the relievers not just throwing heat but being accurate. Yet in the final score it will be those hits and sacrifice plays that drive in runs which will separate the winner from the loser.
Using the Ascendant Aries to represent the Giants we see that Mars ruler of this chart is at Mid-Heaven in expansive and volatile Sagittarius and has I have been saying Mars is Out of Bounds so we will see some extremes

\ Chart Below:
Looking at the chart above, I have ascribed the KC Royals to the Descendant. ( So called because planets at this point descend beneath the horizon and are no longer visible to the naked eye. ) The descendant is the degree of the ecliptic (zodiac) that meets the western horizon, and which denotes the 7th house cusp. Libra is on the 7th house cusp with the Scorpio stellium of Venus-Sun-Pallas all in Scorpio with a one degree orb. Mercury found in the 7th. and now stationing to finally move direct along side the N. Node. This could mean more errors or mistakes from the Royals. There are four TSquares in this chart all mostly involving the ongoing Uranus-Pluto waxing square known for sudden upheavals on and off the field. One of those potentially tumultuous disruptions could even involve the weather for Game Four with e clouds ready to let loose with some powerful rain. If the Giants win this one, which I am still saying they do, they will take the entire series especially since the rains could mean a major delay which will eat at the Royals resolve and confidence.

A Potent Partial Eclipse in Scorpio Adds Intenstiy


Today's New Moon is in the sign of Death, Rebirth, Transformation, Secrets and great Passions, Scorpio. It is also a Partial Solar Eclipse. There are many layers to this highly potent event.

 Generally Solar Eclipses which fall on a new moon tend to bring about events that are more external and focus on outer happenings and personalities. Lunar eclipses are more internal and emotionally oriented but with this eclipse rules like this will be broken. Keep in mind that the very nature of Scorpio is deep, dark, intense and passionate moving from the internal to the external. This eclipse will continue to open portals for the light and dark. For some it will seem likean opportune time for many strange psychic phenomena to materialize. This is the  perfect eclipse for cloaking devices,  shape shifters, warg,s wizards, witches  or even zombie (since the Sun-Moon-Venus in the sign fo the Scorpion will be trine Neptune in Pisces).  The media will continue to paint more images of weirdness and even try to deny
any glitches that have been happening in the Matrix after yesterday's lunar occultation of Mercury. In Notice this "tongue in cheek" article from the HuffPost discussing The Worst Places To Seek Refuge During The Zombie Apocalypse!

This highly significant and powerful eclipse occurs on October 23, 2014 @ 2:56 PM PDT or 5:56 PM EDT
The Sun and Moon will be @ 0 degrees 24 minutes of Scorpio and the Sabian Symbol for 1 degree Scorpio is:
"A sightseeing bus filled with tourists."
This image speaks of observing life, enjoying the unknown and less traveled journey. On that sojourn we will see lots of emphasis on the unusual, strange and mysterious.
Here is a real life example relating to the Sabian Symbol above:
A video of a
San Francisco - city sightseeing tou guide at her last working day

Regarding traveling, in this eclipse Vesta, an asteroid connected to both the hearth and devotion is in Sagittarius and moving close to fixed star Antares. In other words there could be danger from traveling as this eclipse develops over the next few months. Antares, is a red binary star, found near the center of the constellation Scorpius and was sometimes called "the Heart of the Scorpion." Everyone seems to agree that Antares blends the nature of Mars and Jupiter. Whether it is Robson or Ebertin, older astrologers tend to connect Antares to both a martial and malefic nature. Robson waxes negative saying that "Antares causes malevolence, destructiveness, liberality, makes its natives rash, ravenous, headstrong and destructive to themselves by their own obstinacy." I don't necessarily agree about Vesta in Sagittarius which can help athletes achieve greatness.  Of course Elsbeth Ebertin (from that German family dedicated to astrology) continues with the bad rap: according to tradition, Antares is of violent character and is credited with being significant for a violent death, either in battle or by process of law. On the other hand, danger may come about by fire, weapons or machinery.

More importantly the  Sun/Moon will also be conjunct the planet of love and pleasure Venus so that the Moon actually occults or eclipses Venus @ 2:12 PM Pacific less than an hour before the new moon. Venus is in the sign of her ‘fall’ in tropical Scorpio, having entered Scorpio@ 1:52 PM, just before the partial solar eclipse.

 Eclipse facts and visibility:
The partial solar eclipse on October 23, 2014 will be visible from many parts of the United States and Canada. The next lunar eclipse, as seen from the states, will be on April 4th, 2015. That eclipse in the spring of 2015 is another Blood Moon event. Partial solar eclipses happen when the Moon comes between the Sun and the Earth, but they don't align in a perfectly straight line. Because of this, the Moon only partially covers the Sun's disc. In a partial solar eclipse, the Sun looks like the Moon has taken a bite out of it. This is because the Moon casts the lighter, outer part of its shadow, the penumbra, on Earth. The eclipse will be seen from 49 states except Hawaii! Maine, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island will technically see the eclipse, but it is very unlikely, since the eclipse will begin seconds before sunset. The eclipse will begin near the Kamchatka Peninsula in eastern Sibera at 19:38 (7:38 pm) UTC. As it moves east, much of North America will be able to see a partial solar eclipse. The maximum eclipse will take place at 21:45 (9:45 pm) UTC over Canada's Nunavut Territory near Prince of Wales Island.

Today we will have a triple conjunction all in a critical degree which is called a ‘via combusta,’ or ‘the burning path’ of the skies which can be considered to be weakening. Per Skyscript: The area between 15 Libra and 15 Scorpio is termed the Via Combusta: 'Fiery Road' or 'Combust Way'. It is considered to be a debilitating area, particularly detrimental to the Moon. Al Biruni wrote of it: "The combust way is the last part of Libra and the first of Scorpio. These two signs are not congenial to the Sun and the Moon on account of the obscurity and ill-luck connected with them and because each of them is the fall of one of the luminaries."

 There is no doubt that this conjunction of the Sun-Moon-Venus will effect relationships and particularly women & women's issues along with revealing secrets. In a chart set for Washington DC @ 5:56 PM EDT. Venus falls in the ‘angle of the West,’ or 7th house which in astrology is also known as the House of Marriage, Partnerships open enemies and all types of relationships. In the chart below, Aries is rising ahead of the S. Node and Uranus putting oneness on surprise attacks or confrontations. Ruler of this Chart, Mars is in the 9th house in Sagittarius and Out of Bounds by declination and conjunct fixed star Acumen which I cover later in this report. Suffice to say, Acumen, a companion to Aculeus is known to literally cause problems with eyesight. More likely we are talking about a morbid outlook, when people are seeing the worst rather than the best in everything. Since Mars is in the sign of the archer, Sagittarius, religious views will be affected, and there is a tendency to be either the 'hellfire and damnation brigade' or to will rail in a fierce athiest, anti-religious and even anti-God stance

Using longitude the only star that the Sun-Moon-Venus and close to is a minor fixed Miaplacidus, a star in Argo the ship. Miaplacidus found in the the keel of Argo the Great Ship is now @ Scorpio 1ยบ 58’. Robson says of the constellation Argo.“Is said to give prosperity in trade and voyages, and strength of mind” The star is in the Keel, which holds the whole ship together like a spine and is build first. Mars (ancient ruler of Scorpio) will be conjunct fixed star Acumen, an open cluster of stars above the stinger of the Scorpion.
Acumen is a companion cluster of star to Aculeus which tends to have the same nature and influence
Per Robson, Acumen merges the nature of Mars and the Moon and effects the eyesight.
Acumen is said to cause blindness of one or both eyes (or being mentally blind to what is happening around you). Robson goes on to say that if Acumen is in conjunction with an afflicted luminary (Sun or Moon) or in conjunction with a malefic that afflicts the luminaries...

A  preview of the New Moon/Partial Eclipse Chart set for San Francisco @ 2:57 PM PDT on October 23rd.
Look Below and notice that Aquarius is rising @ 10 degrees for some extra surprises and ruler Uranus is in the 2nd house of investing
along with a packed 8th house where the Sun-Moon-Venus are all in Scorpio relating to secret debt and intimacy in marriage and relationships
This position   of the Scorpio conjunction in the 8th house will connect to the deceased, autopsies, inheritances/heirs , partner's possessions, sexuality, loans and a lot more. Having this triple conjunction in the natural house of Scorpio will explicate many things including new secrets uncovered about about sex, taboos and many extreme news items.
Chart Below:
Note that Venus in the 8th house for the Pacific Coast tends toward an attraction to what is forbidden, erotica, even faded and macabre. It will start to feel like an erotic/exotic ball even before All Hallows and with Mars the consort of Venus, finishing up that riotous transit in Sagittarius and entering Capricorn on October 25th. more cryptic and occult. Two days after the eclipse on October 25, 2014 partial eclipse, Venus will shift to ‘evening star’ cycle (until August 2015) and will rise and set after the Sun. Venus plays the role of the Evening Star, Hesperus, which means western. It is said that Evening Star Venus types are more likely to be passive, prone to being invisible yet can be highly strategic in their actions. Venus not only symbolizes emotional processes and attitudes,but also how we interpret, evaluate and make sense of our life-experiences and the world around us. As the ruler of the 2nd house and Taurus, it is how we relate to possesions and how they possess us.

World Series 2014 Game Two Giants vs. Royals thru an Astrological Lens

Tonight we are back at Kauffman Stadium in KC and after last night's thorough whipping of the Royals by the comeback team of the decade, the SF Giants, undoubtedly the KC kids are out for blood. Historically the team that wins the first game usually takes the series and as Giants fan I believe they will but Game Two will be tough. Even though from an astrological standpoint both charts for game one and game two seem similar, there is strange energy tonight as we build up toward tomorrow's Partial Eclipse in Scorpio. This eclipse a partner to the Total Lunar eclipse on Oct. 8th will be visible over much of North America. And in the USA from 49 states except Hawaii! Maine, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island will technically see the eclipse, but it is very unlikely, since the eclipse will begin seconds before sunset. Everyone could feel the tension before the game started. When we look at the final score and think back to the start of the game, it seemed counter-intuitive reflecting both Mercury retrograde, Mars Out of Bounds in Sagittarius and Venus Void of Course There was a Royal Reversal as the Giants dropped the second game of the World Series to the KC Royals - 7 to 2.
Update: First Inning seemed lie replay witGregor Blanco hit the first leadoff homer in the World Series since 2004. With Blanco's hitting this blast in Game 2, we expected the Giants to kick ass again. That is not exactly what happened as the Royals got another run themselves in the bottom of the first and by the 2nd inning were ahead leading 2 to 1. Then in th 4th. Sandoval and Belt put two well hit doubles together. Two batters later, Brandon Belt doubled to even the score. Adding to the sudden change of score tonight is that Uranus still in orb of the S. Node in Aries is supported by Mars the ruler of the Ram
Uranus is also conjunct fixed star Alpheratz,s a double star, with magnitudes, 2.2 and 11, colored white and purple and found on the head of Andromeda the Chained Woman. Alpheratz is said to give independence, freedom, love, riches, honor and a keen intellect. Combine with Uranus and shocking and irregular behavior can also occur - More on the Hunter Strickland's sudden angry disruption in the 6th. inning. It all started with a a two-run homer by Omar Infante off Hunter Strickland. The way it came down was that Strickland, the rookie reliever, started barking angrily at Perez, the American League’s starting catcher in the All-Star Game, when Perez and Infante crossed the plate. In full Mars in Sagittarius out of bounds style there was a lot of posturing happened and even brought many of the Royals onto the field, and when Strickland was lifted for Jeremy Affeldt, one of the umpires even escorted Strickland off the field.
Note that Strickland (born Sept. 24 1988) has both his natal Uranus in Out of Bounds by declination and Mars in fiery Aries in opposition to his natal Sun in Libra. He also has Saturn @ 27 degrees and Uranus @ 28 degrees both conjunct Aculeus which is an open cluster of stars above the stinger of the Scorpion. Aculeius is a companion to cluster to M7, Acume which is closely conjunct Mars at tomorrow's Solar Eclipse Aculeius like Acumen negative Mars-Moon quality in people who have them poorly aspected, with a tendency towards a morbid outlook, seeing the worst rather than the best in everything. . By the seventh,the Royals had a flurry of hitting adding another 5 runs. By the bottom of the seventh the score was 7 to 2 in the Royals favor. Looking at the Sun and Venus in the last or Third Decan and the ruler Jupiter now in Leo which supports this Taurus is rising which I will call the Royals using both the ascendant for the home team and the color blue closer to Taurus than Orange With Scorpio on the descendant/7th. house we relate to the Giants colors of Orange and Black. One of the subtle differences is that Venus ruler of the Home Team is moving closer to a beneficial conjunction with the Sun. That conjunction won't occur till tomorrow @ 2:21 PM when both signs will be in Scorpio @ 1 degree. These early degrees of Scorpio from 1 to 10 are called "Decans" meaning 10. When we look at the Table of Faces (or Decanates) we see that Mars is the ruler. Scorpio is also planet relating to transformations and in this case to a type of resurrection. Of overall the Giants themselves are the champions of Phoenix like behavior during the 2014 season. Keep in mind that Mars the planet which most correlates to energy, desire and athletic ability is now out of bounds in Sagittarius when extremes can occur. Also with Mercury (retro.) near the N. Node of future fate in the sign of the scales, things can tip either way with this game. chart below:
Speaking of the scales of Libra by the 4th inning, the Giants had tied it. Sandoval led off the top of the fourth inning with a double after his liner to deep center field bounced off Lorenzo Cain's glove just before Cain crashed into the wall. Two batters later, Brandon Belt doubled to right field off Kansas City starter Yordano Ventura to tie it at 2.

World Series 2014 Game One Giants vs. Royals thru an Astrological Lens

Final Score: Giants 7 Royals 1 Giants on a record breaking streak with 7 straight wins in all the post season series. Bumgarner now 3-0 in the Fall Classic Hunter Pence's two-run homer fueled a three-run first inning in Game 1 as the Giants proceeded to complement Bumgarner's seven-inning effort with their second-highest scoring total of the postseason Astrological Breakdown on How They Got There.
Here we are at the World Series. We have two Wild Card teams who persisted , one - the Giants, veterans of two other victories in 2010 and 2012 and their rival the Royals haven't been here since 1985 when Motely Crue was in the house. It has been 29 years since the Royals were here and they are focused on winning but so are the Giants. As I said in my last two astrological appraisals, impressions and semi-forecasts with Mercury still retrograde till October 25th, errors and mistakes could mean the difference between winning and losing. Also with Uranus retrograde and fired up in Aries and opposing tonight's Moon in Libra.
We seen some amazing and unexpected hits which have launched the Giants from the amazing Blood Moon Eclipse on October 8th. when the Moon and the planet of sudden shocks were cojoined. And the Giants who are one of the greatest post-season teams in history and players like the Panda, Pablo Sandoval who has rocked the ball with dynamic power like in the 2012 Series.

Without further hesitation even with today's indecisive Libra Moon, I am saying the Giants will hit the Royals hard in the early innings. The chart below is set for the first pitch tonight @ 7:07 PM CDT in KC. Using Sports Astrology where:

Taurus is rising which I will call the Royals using both the ascendant for the home team and the color blue closer to Taurus
With Scorpio on the descendant/7th. house we relate to the Giants colors of Orange and Black.
chart below:

Let's look at the two starting pitchers:

Let's look at the two starting pitchers:
Madison Bumgarner (born Aug. 1, 1989) vs.James Shields (born Dec. 20, 1981)

First of all Bumgarner who is hot and was given the MVP award just last week for his work in the NLCS Championship.
Bumgarner who not only has a dominant Leo stellium which can sustain over the long haul
along with a Uranus-Saturn combo in disciplined Capricorn and opposing Jupiter which is about spontaneity and originality
versus control and is also a "Lucky aspect".
Madison also has Uranus is slight Out of Bounds position which means the unexpected superlative performance.

James Shields who is an adaptable and bold Sagittiarus with Uranus-Juno-Vesta-Neptune-Sun all in the sign of the archer
He also has a close alignment between Mars, the planet representing desire, phsyical energy in Libra to his natal Uranus for sudden athletic performances.
this is an aspect which represents superb athletic inuituition.

Back to the analysis of the two pitchers: Madison Bumgarner vs.James Shields
Sagittarius Shields (born Dec. 20, 1981) the Royals pitcher is about 7 years older than ultra-Leo Bumgarner (born Aug. 1, 1989)
Both throwers can fire heat, cutters and have a change-up.
Of course from my stand point astrologically Shields is at disavantange due to a recent bout with kidney stones and with his natal stellium of Mars, Pallas, Saturn, Pluto and Moon all in Libra
and Libra rules the kidneys.
As the Grand Cardinal Square involving Uranus and Pluto in a waxing square
And with the tonight's moon transiting in Libra to square Pluto and Uranus (exact AM tomorrow) he could get blindsided. Also Shields has a natal Mars-Neptune conjunction in sometimes over-confident Sagittarius which can mean performing magical feats or falling prey to resignation and not finishing.
Below is a dual wheel chart with the older James Shields in the center and Bumgarner on the outer wheel:

NLCS 2014 Game Five - Giants vs. Cardinals thru an Astrological Lens

Forget all that doom, gloom, fire & falling stones stuff.
Let go of the Ebola Propaganda, fear mongering and Psyops/Hoax
Take a break the sixth extinction and 7th root race and just have some fun on this Leo Moon

Now for some Baseball, Cheering, Peanuts and Popcorn..
I am specifically talking about Game Five of the NLCS with Giants vs. Cardinals
Will this be a repeat of last Wednesday night's game, a come from behind thriller?
In Game Four, the Giants out fielded, pitching and hitting the Cardinals To win 6 to 4.

Yes Game Five was not just a nail biter filled with what has been dubbed "torture over 9 innings" and nirvana at the end. Yes as with any moon in a fixed sign like Leo, it is all about alls well that ends well!
And for the Third time in Five Years:
The SF Giants are back in the World Series
Plus with Juno (partnerships) - the Moon (emotional upsurge) and Jupiter (success) all in dramatic, fiery Leo

There were lots of heroes:

Looking back at my astrologically descriptive forecast for Game Five:

First of all once again Uranus in Aries is intercepted in the first house meaning things will start fast and many hits and plays will be sudden and shocking.
Watch out for Game-Changing Errors and Errant Winds with Mercury continuing Retrograde till October 25th.

More than likely with Mercury retrograde, there will be some crucial errors.
On the other hand iwht Mars aligned with Mercury, some totally amazing plays, hit and runs, base stealing and ferocious pitching
In other words add in the Moon-Juno-Jupiter all in Leo - so expect some heroic efforts!
Before we bring in the pitchers, let's look at the chart set for the first pitch @ 5:07 PM PDT
Chart Below with Pisces rising at this time @ 22 degrees with this over the top Sabian Symbol:
"A prophet bringng down the new law from the mountain."
Time for the Giants to lay down the law?
What kind of revelations will we all experience in this super-exciting Game Five?

UPDATE: Giants 6, Cardinals 3

SF Giants win pennant on Travis Ishikawa’s walkoff homer.
One of the Heroes Tonight was Libra Travis Ishikawa (born September 24, 1983)
with an explosive natal Grand Fire Trine led by Mars-Venus in Leo aligning well with tonight's Leo Moon/Jupiter and yes Mars now out of bounds in Sagittarius - relating to extreme athletic performance.

As After Michael Morse so improbably tied Game 5 of the National League Championship Series with an eighth-inning homer off Pat Neshek, Travis Ishikawa hit a three-run homer off Michael Wacha with one out in the ninth for a 6-3 win that sent AT&T Park into a state of delirium, and the Giants to the World Series.

Here are the astrological factors that help the Giants Achieve the Third Trip to the World Series in Five Years:

Once again the chart's rulers are Jupiter (ancient ruler) and Neptune (modern ruler)
Most conducive to a blow away victory is Jupiter in the 6th. followed by Juno and Moon in the 5th.
Mainly due to positive support from Vesta and Mars both in risk-taking, bold Sagittarius both in the 9th. house adding reception.
Where as Neptune is in the 12th. house of things hidden, institutions and imagination
which doesn't have the high energy ramifications

Once again with sports astrology:
the ascendant(ASC) represents the home time and the descendant (DSC) the visiting team.
The Giants with Pisces rising have the abundance advantage with ruler Jupiter
The Cards with Virgo on the 7th house cusp (DSC) are the perfectionists who have to deal with Mercury retrograde
Yet Mercury is conjunct Venus both in Libra and intercepted in the 7th house
which can bolster communications between the players but also be a hinderance..

Now for the two ace starting pitchers: Madison Bumgarner (August 1, 1989 vs. Adam Wainright (August 30, 1981)

Undoubtedly we will see a great pitching duel..
Compare their current records:
An 18-game winner this season with a 2.98 ERA, Bumgarner figures to finish in the top five in the NL Cy Young Award balloting along with Wainwright, who won 20 for the second time while posting a 2.38 ERA.
Madison of course is 8 years younger with a potentially longer career ahead.
His style is perhaps less refined than Wainright, the elder who can also throw heat!
Below is a dual wheel chart with Wainright's natal chart in the central wheel and Bumgarner's younger natal chart on the outside ring.

Both pitchers are equally matched but Madison the younger is less experienced than Adam Wainwright
If powerful Madison can dominate with his fast ball and get lots of fielding support
Also Bumgarner is a double threat being the best hitting pitcher in baseball.
His natal Leo Stellium should burn thru the Cards.
while on the other token, it will be Wainright's Virgo Combo
that will increase perfect pitching.
Of course is Wainright's other stellium of Saturn-Jupiter-Vesta-Venus-Pluto in Libra
could mean he gets flustered if he starts getting off balance from Giants hitting.

Also in Sports Astrology - The 5th house, and 11th house (counted as 5th from the 7th) describe how they play the game.
In this case the Leo cusp for the Giants represent maybe an over-confident stance
which could be there downfall.
Ruler is the Sun now in Libra near Mercury (cooridination/reflexes) now retro. in Libra causing the game to go the way of the Cards.
In the case of the Cards,11th house (counted as 5th from the 7th) has Aquarius on the cusp
with Ruler, Uranus in that angular first house as I mentioned which has meant unexpected hits including an hit by Jay which was mishandled by Travis.

Update from the 7th inning with Chris Issac singing God Bless America with Chris Dale Johnson.
And the Cardinals Lead 3 to 2 over the Giants
Using my chart animation program we see at 7:13 PM that the Leo combo of Juno-Moon-Jupiter are now in the 4th. house which could favor the Giants.
While Capricorn is on the cusp of the 10th. house now and ruler Saturn is near Ceres in Scorpio and in the 7th so it is about how steady Wainright and the Cards can remain.

For the Giants it is all about coming back with an abrupt rally or home run. And as we know this is what occurred not just once but three times!

Blood Moon Eclipse on October 8, 2014


October 8th. 2014 - Don't worry if you are feeling a little anxious or out of sorts after this morning's Blood Moon Eclipse,
you are not alone and the remedy is patience now the Aries Moon moved Void of Course (exact @ 7:20 AM)
When Luna is Void of Course in the sign of the reactive warrior, impulsive and premature actions will only add to the problems.
Also avoid direct attacks since confrontations tend to be ineffective.
Don't forget that Mercury is both retrograde and void of course in the sign of death,rebirth, transformation and the 8th. house.
Even after Mercury goes backwards into Libra on October 10th, Saturn and Ceres will continue in the sign of extremes and secrets, Scorpio.

With an Aries Moon passing Uranus and meeting the S. Node - there will be many first time events and some of them won't be fortuitous or pleasant...
Mars which is out of bounds in Sagittarius is in a close square to Chiron the wounded healer in Pisces.

1st Ebola patient diagnosed in the US has died

DALLAS (AP) — The first Ebola patient diagnosed in the United States died Wednesday morning in a Dallas hospital, according to a hospital spokesman.

The next Eclipse is a Partial Solar Event
and also seen across much of North America, Asia, the Atantic and the Pacific
and occurs@ 1 degree Scorpio on October 23rd. @ 2:57 PM Pacfic
This next eclipse and today's Lunar Eclipse are part of a
family of eclipses or saros series aka New North when hectic and impulsive energies are brought into social situatons..

Another more doom-filled story from today involving Scorpionic themes and Ebola
connects Mars ruler of this Blood Moon in Aries in that Mars is in an "extreme/risky" place being Out of Bounds by declination in the sign of expansion, Sagittarius
and in a contra-parallel (like an opposition) to Hygeia (asteroid relating to Public Health and Illness)
CDC Suggests "Hermetically Sealed Caskets" For Ebola Victims - AKA "Fema Coffins"
Even more sinister is that this article insinuates that:
"the CDC has been expecting the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans due to infection for at least the past six years. That is a LONG period of preparation. Such preparation requires I said yesterday, any Aries Moon can be hyper, slightly chaotic with a tendency toward waxing berskerk and this one is both a Full Hunter's Moon and a Blood Moon
Even astronomically this event was considered rare:

Today's Blood Moon is part of a family of eclipses or saros series aka New North per B. Brady:
This series brings an impulsive energy to events.
Socializing becomes hectic as issues emerge that motivate the individual as much as the group maybe more.
This motivation may be concerned with financial projects, relationship issues and be intense, passionate and exciting.

October 8th. Transits for Your Edification:
Also right before the eclipse began for the West Coast, the Moon was in occultation/conjunction to Uranus (exact @ 2:52 AM)
As we know Uranus is the the planet of shocking, jolting and sudden events.
The Moon was between us and Uranus at the same elevation in the sky, an exact lineup.
Many of the shocking events and revealings will be obscurred by our emotional blindness or denial
Anything can happen now and it probably will. It’s a time for social experimentation, uproar, sudden eccentric events , and risk taking.

This afternoon on this day of shockers with the Moon separated from and occultation with Uranus
from an opposition to the Sun and Venus in always balancing Libra
and today's Pluto-Venus square (when cooperation is forced and demanded in this time of panic-epidemic

Out of Los Angeles - Breaking News:
‘Possible Ebola Patient’ Placed in Isolation at Inglewood Hospital After Arriving at LAX

Then @ 3:51 AM PDT or 6:51 AM EDT came the Super Moon and Lunar Eclipse
Also known as the Full Hunter's Moon, Blood Moon, or Sanguine Moon by Native American tribes.
Native Americans named this bright moon for obvious reasons. The atumnal leaves are falling from trees, the deer are usuallyfattened, and it’s time to begin storing up meat for the long winter ahead.
Full Moons are always turning points and critical junctures and this one is no exception with much more active and explosive aspects.

As I said the Moon and Uranus were in combustable Aries with the Moon @ 15 degrees 05 mintues with a "curious" Sabian Symbol for 16 degrees Aries:
Brightly clad brownies dancing in the warm dying light.
The image tells of the magic of dusk, reveling in nature spirits, believing in the assistance from spirit guides and a lot more..

The Sun will oppose both the Moon and Uranus and will be @ 15 degrees 05 minutes of Libra with this appropriate Sabian Symbol for 16 degrees Libra:
After a storm, a boat landing stands in need of reconstruction
This image deals with not just rebuilidng to create new opportunities but rebuilidng security after a major natural disaster.
Below is a chart set for San Jose, CA. @ 3:51 AM - where Virgo is rising and the ruler Mercury is posited in the 3rd. house of communications, transportation of all kinds from cars to airplanes, education mostly pre-college and any sort of media.
Mercury has recently stationed retrograde (Oct. 4th) in Scorpio and the Sabian Symbol for 2 degrees Scorpio is telling: "A broken bottle and spilled perfume." This image relates to concentrated emotions, desires, aromas, chemicals that are shattered and spill. A time of accidents, disappointments and outbursts. With Mercury retrograde expect lots of glitches, hacks and thievery.

Later in the morning - Venus in Libra Squares Pluto in Capricorn @ 10:31 AM
As we are seeing stressful, life or death events may occur during this challenging transit.
Also a difficult time for open talks, trust, and sharing.

Finally into the early afternoon a much more positive yet more thrilling aspect as
Mars in now OOB Sagittarius Trines Jupiter in Leo @ 1:43 PM
Time for outdoor activities, taking the initiative, risky ventures, speculations, enterprise, and quick judgments.

On another side of the Mars-Sagittarius alignment with Jupiter-Leo involves dissemination of informaton via publishing
Mars in Sagittarius and in an extreme Out of Bounds declination is about being self-rightous and telling the truth or exaggerating.
Mars in Sagittarius also relates to foreign actions and hoaxes.
Here we have German Journalist and Editor Dr. Udo Ulfkatte ha gone public with some shocking admissions.
He basically admitted what all of us who read the alternative media such as BeforeItsNews have known for a long time – the entire mainstream media is totally fake!
He went into a very detailed talk in this video and spilled the beans about everything!

Redux: Severe Weather reflects eclipse
with today's story: From Yahoo: Supertyphoon Vongfong, which rivals Haiyan on course for Japan
If you remember how in 2013, Haiyan left nearly 8,000 people dead or missing when gusts of around 300 kilometres (190 miles) per hour tore through the country, generating giant waves that swamped coastal communities.
When Haiyan made landfall on November 8, 2013 both Sun-Saturn where conjunct in Scorpio and Mercury/N. Node at that time
were opposing S. Node and Hygeia.
The chart below set for today's Blood Moon exact in Okinawa @ 7:51 PM LMT has both a Grand Cardinal Square but also a Grand Fixed Square when you add in the Ascendant in Taurus closely square Jupiter in Leo...

Severe weather and Super Typhoons reflect today's monster Blood Moon

Super Typhoon Vongfong Now World's Strongest Cyclone of 2014; Dangerous Threat to Japan This Weekend

Looking below at a chart set for the Full Moon - Lunar Eclipse in Okinawa,Japan
WOW - Taurus is rising @ 19 degrees - with this prophetic sabian symbol: A new continent is rising out of the ocean
Sounds like an Edgar Cayce prediction as this image reflects a new place, a new country and new trends like Atlantis rising out of the ocean.
Venus ruler of the chart now in Libra near the Sun is opposing Uranus and the Moon - in weather terms Venus relates to moisture - sudden and upheaval like!
Aquarius is at Mid-Heaven pointing to the ruler Uranus near the Moon and in oceanic Pisces
Juno in Leo is TSQ both Mercury in Scorpio and the Mid-Heaven and finalizes a Grand Fixed Square with a Taurus Ascendant.

Like I said: Any Aries Moon can be slightly chaotic and over-active and this one has conjunction to Uranus, the planet of shocking, jolting and sudden events.

Per Example: Watch out for accidents as we head toward the exact Blood Moon
We see with breaking news out of Canada where
Canadian Train Derailement Leads to Fiery Explosions

A major train derailment took place at 10:40am CST near Wadena in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan.
Reports indicate that as many as 26 railway cars have derailed, and the train was hauling a total of 100 cars. Large explosions and massive plumes of smoke have been reported by witnesses near the scene.
Officials say the smoke pouring from the accident is toxic, and due to that concern are keeping residents several miles away from the scene for their own safety.

A chart set for 10:40am CST has Scorpio rising with Saturn and chart's ruler Mars now Out of Bounds also in the first house
Mars of course is the ruler of this explosive Aries Moon and is square Chiron
Saturn also is square Jupiter adding to major security issues.

Parts of the USA are in the shadow of dangerous weather too as the Total Lunar Eclipse comes together
Severe Weather Forecast: Tornado Watch in Kentucky, West Virginia, Virginia; Hail, Wind Threats for South, Ohio Valley
The Storm Prediction Center has issued a tornado watch valid until 11 p.m. EDT for parts of Kentucky, West Virginia, and Virginia as another round of severe storms breaks out along a frontal boundary.
Some of the cities included in the watch are Lexington, Kentucky, and areas west of Charleston, West Virginia. See below for the current map showing the watch and active warnings with a radar overlay.
Severe weather broke out in parts of Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia Monday afternoon and evening, producing hail up to the size of hen eggs and damaging some homes in Georgia. A pair of EF1 tornadoes have been confirmed, one in Ringgold, Georgia, the other near Agee Ridge, Kentucky.

Initial reading:

NLCS 2014 - Game 4 - Giants vs. Cardinals thru an Astrological Lens


Back to Baseball and specifically Game Four of the NLCS with Giants vs. Cardinals
With start time 5:07 PM Pacific Time and the Giants leading and trying to keep the momentum going. Final Result SF Giants come back with power and desire to beat the Cards 6 to 4

An astrological analysis
Since the moon is Void of Course, some sports astrologers say that: Nothing much happens, i.e., the favorite wins."Nothing much happens" means that the expected result occurs.
Not so sure about that or how it will be business as usual! With the continued Mercury retrograde period and fiery trines led by Mars in Sagittarius...

Giants starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong (born July 22,1977) another pitcher like Hudson born with Sun in latter degrees of Cancer.

Vogey also has a Leo conjunction with Saturn-Mercury-Vesta which can mean exceptional control or wild pitches.
Most favorable for Voggie is his natal Mars in Gemini relating ot manual dexterity and quick reactions along with a Ceres-Pluto-Moon combo in Libra which indicate power struggles which can be resolved by cooperation with his teammates and self-determination.

Another Pitcher that figures into tonight's game is Yusmeiro Alberto Petit (born November 22, 1984)

This former Venezuelan professional baseball pitcher now makikng a name for himself in San Francisco
as a clutch reliever who throws strikes.
Petit in his natal chart has an heroic Sagittarian Stellium with his Sun (identity) @ critical 0 degrees - Uranus @ 13 degrees and Mercury @ 22 degrees
all these planets are well aspect with current transits from fire and air signs.
Speaking of air as an element which can enhance pitching abilities
is Petit's Grand Air trine led by Mars in Aquarius! >Notice the sequence of Petit's last two outstanding performances: Tonight's shut out innings piled atop his six shutout innings during the NLDS against the Nationals, here’s Petit’s postseason line: 9 innings, 2 hits, 0 runs, 4 walks, 11 strikeouts. Yes, that’s the equivalent of a complete-game, two-hit shutout.
>In sports astrology:
the ascendant(ASC) represents the home time and the descendant (DSC) the visiting team.
Pisces is rising with the (ASC) @ 20 degrees with this Sabian: "A table set for an evening meal."
Could this mean that the red-hot Giants will bring home the bacon tonight?
I would say there will be an element of devouring with this game but the question is who will serve and who will eat?
Jupiter, which is the ancient ruler of the chart also connects with Mars now in Sagittarus
Jupiter is in Leo and positioned the 6th. house relating to how the game is played on an inning by inning basis .
With Leo it will involve grand gestures.
Neptune the modern ruler of the chart below is in the 12th house which can represent some confusion, resignations and hidden motivations - not that positive.
Uranus is intercepted in the first house indicating another unusual/swift start to the game perhaps involving a sudden home run or hit to quickly drive in runs.
Virgo is on the cusp of the 7th house representing the Cardinals - remember that Mercury ruler of Virgo is retrograde so
the Cards could also have there share of errors.
Also since the 7th. house is dominated by the Libra Stellium which is intercepted , we could see the Cardinals shift and re-balance with a victory
Or once again come back strong with rallys and home runs. Chart Below set for 5:07 PM PDT starting time

Update: The Giants are one home game win away from capturing their third National League pennant in five seasons because they are playing fundamental baseball a whole lot better than the Cardinals.

One of the biggest factors in this game was and is Mars
at Mid-Heaven @ 22 degrees 21 minutes of Sagittarius - In other words Action-Packed per this update from SF Gate: Packed first 3 innings of NLCS Game 4
Mars fits in well today, since this hard-hitting planet is part of the Waning Square by Quincunx to the Moon in Cancer
When games and competition can fluctuate quickly....and since Mars is in Sagittarius - we will see more than our share of hits and errors.
Yet Mars is also aligned with the Sun in Libra - a Hero Making aspect!
Since Mars, the warrior planet that gives athletes and all of us desire, energy, that motivating force that makes things happen!
Having Mars Out of Bounds in the sign of the sportsman, risk taker and clown Sagittarius makes this game exciting with some unusual circumstances happening in rapid fire. (That describes the Giant's rally that kept on giving)
Mars is well aspected with the Sun (just separating from an exact sextile) which encourages assertiveness, bravery and trying new things.
well aspected with Mercury in Libra which can mean fast reactions, quick decisive action and great motor control when you swing the bat, catch sizzling drives or pitch cutters that spin away. Notice how the Giants came from behind!

An Exodus Moon Rises on Friday the 13th.


You can feel the excitement building towards the next Full Moon in Sagittarius occurs on June 12, 2014 @ 9:11 PM PDT or June 13, 2014 @ 12:11 AM EDT The Full Moon will be @ 22 degrees 5 minutes of Sagittarius with this Sabian Symbol: "A group of immigrants fulfilling the requirements for entering a new country." This and the fact that massive shifts in population or the departure of large number of people Full Strawberry Moon – June This name was universal to every Algonquin tribe. However, in Europe they called it the Rose Moon. Also because the relatively short season for harvesting strawberries comes each year during the month of June . b>TIME FOR THE FULL MOON OVER THE WEST COAST
Today marks an active, explosive, expansive Sagittarius Full Moon exact on June 12th. exact @ 9:11 PM PDT
or on June 13th. or Friday the Thirteenth @ 12:11 AM EDT
The native americans of every Algonquin tribe called this Full Moon in June, "the Strawberry Moon". For those natives this lunation marked the short season for harvesting strawberries in month of June.
In the Northern hemisphere, the June full moon is sometimes called "a Honey Moon", possibly because it never gets very high in the sky.
I am dubbing this Full Moon in June - The Exodus Moon
I say this first because:
This Full Moon will be @ 22 degrees 5 minutes of Sagittarius with this Sabian Symbol: "A group of immigrants fulfilling the requirements for entering a new country."
Secondarily since Jupiter ruler of Sagittarius deals with travel, movements of people even evacuatons which are forced upon populations. Currently Jupiter transiting in 23 degrees Cancer is Quincunx the Sun and Moon creating major adjustments
Jupiter is also in a 90 degree angle or square to the Moon's Nodes in Libra and Aries adding to this focus of the departure of large numbers of people.
We saw earlier this week how as : al-Qaeda takes swathes of northern Iraq, sparking a mass exodus of civilian

Chart Below is set for the Full Moon in San Francisco @ 9:11 PM on June 12th .
Capricorn is rising with the moon esconsced in the 12th house of dreams and seculusion
Ruler of this chart, Saturn, claims an an angular spot on the 11th house cusp and opposes Venus, goddess of love and pleasure in Taurus
and found on the 5th house cusp.

Full Flower Moon rieses near Saturn Adds Inspiration to the Darkness


All times are in Pacific Time Zone
Today's Full Moon in Scorpio occurs @ 12:16 PM PDT or 3:16 PM EDT or . Just as spring is a time when wildflowers rise up from the earth, this lunation is known by Native American tribes as The Full Flower Moon or Full Corn Planting Moon which reflects a time of abundance and blossoming. During this fullness the moon will be @ 23 degrees 55 minutes of Scorpio. The Sabian Symbol for 24 degrees Scorpio: "Crowds coming down the mountain to listen to one inspired person." hints at time when a powerful message will resonate with large numbers of people similar to Jesus Sermon on the Mount. Perhaps a better image for today's potent and mysterious Full Moon is that of flowers rising from the ashes of a once great flames which resulted in utter devastation as described in this story about blooms known as a "fire follower,". This is a flower that grows only after an extra-hot wildfire has devastated a landscape. In San Diego we are seeing another massive wildfire gain strength which has destroyed over 20 homes and prompted the evacuation of 20,000 + people. Never before have we all needed the power of regeneration along with "phoenix-like" forces to awaken on our planet. I would like to say that everything is just fine and the Grand Cardinal Cross is over but since Mars, the ancient ruler of Scorpio in reception to Saturn by sign will soon station to move direct (May 19th.) we are just getting started. But today it is about fixed signs where the Moon occults Saturn ( @ 5:02 AM ) known to be a position of denial as emotional Moon is between us and Saturn at the same elevation in the sky. Saturn the planet representing accountability and taking personal responsibility is hidden. One thing is for sure the collective need for security is strong and with the sign most related to investigatiosn, secrets and surveillance, Scorpio highlighted even real reasons for the Flight MH 370 are revealed as a UN agency is calling for global tracking system. Saturn also corresponds astrologically to mining underground and the recent Turkish coal mine explosion and fire has resulted in238 perishing, 80 more injured and protests against the Erdogan-led government. Also this expose with the scent of Saturn-Pluto in reception: Bankers killing bankers for the insurance money and another look at 9/11 What did you expect with a Full Moon in Scorpio near Saturn?
Since Saturn in Scorpio, the sign of death, insurance and secrets is in reception to Pluto in Capricorn, the sign of business, bones mining and masons. Add in that the Sun in Taurus, the sign of banking, investments and real estate and ruled by Venus now in fast moving Aries and applying toward a square to Pluto (death, decadence, depravity) (exact today @ 10:47 AM)

Speaking of fixed signs like LEO, the conquering lion and protective house cat per this video of Tara saving a little boy from a vicious dog attack Pallas continues direct in Leo @ 29 degrees. Twenty-nine degrees is the most karmic degree for any sign - a place where we will see extremes of beauty and majesty to climate changes. Some of the weather changes involve where record heat and fires like the one in San Diego, to severe thunderstorms/tornadoes leading to more flooding back East. In case we forgot the earth element, represented by the Juno and the Sun in Taurus and Pluto continuing retrograde in active, earth element Capricorn, we shouldn't forget the magnitude 6.5 quake which struck on May 13th. which was centered 81 miles off the pacific coast and for that matter a 6.5 shaker in the Southern Pacific Rise the day before. While the fickle media reflected by the passage of Mercury in Gemini keeps us all distracted by the news of celebrity brothers and sisters like Solange Knowles freedoms are eroded and nepotism continues to the point of farcical appointments like that of Joe Biden's son to Board Of Largest Ukraine Gas Producer. Never before do we all need personal, self-engendered inspiration and independent thinking and yes as the moon shifts into Sagittarius this evening @ 10:44 PM we have a window for awakening to insights and illumination these next two weeks heading toward the next new moon this time in Gemini on May 28th.

The Tetrad Begins with a Blood Moon Rising and a Cardinal Cross


On April 15th at 6 minutes past midnight Pacific Time (3:06 a.m Eastern Time), the Moon will entered the sunset-colored or orange shadow of Earth, producing a total eclipse of the Moon. The moon will be full exactly @ 25 degrees 16 minutes Libra. The Sabian Symbol for 26 degrees Libra: "An eagle and a large white dove turning constantly into each other." With this image there may be some confusion whether to use force or love in some situations.

This event marks the first of four Total Lunar Eclipses and this Full Moon in Libra precedes an annular solar eclipse @ 9 degrees Taurus which will occur on April 29, 2014. Per B.Brady: "These eclipses are part of Saros Series 16 South which started on September 21, 1653 and ends on October 20, 2897. "Under the influence of this family of eclipses, individuals will find themselves dealing with wasted energy, or misdirected motivation, particularly when dealing with groups. `There can be sudden motivation but this is potentially unfullfiling, no real action should be taken. "
Events that occur in the days around an eclipse are always memorable using an orb of + or - 10 days. A total eclipse is the most powerful of all lunarLunar Eclipse can have an effect about 6 weeks before and after the lunar eclipse although events connected to the eclipse to occur as long as 1.5 years after the phenomena. 
In our personal charts, where a Lunar Eclipse falls can have specific effects per example: 
On the Ascendant/Rising it  is said to be indicators of bad health for the native.

On the  Descendant is said to indicate of difficult times ahead for partnerships.

Eclipses affecting the MC are said to be indicators of disastrous effects regarding the
honor, position and credit of the native.

Eclipses on the IC / Imum Coeli (directly opposite the Midheaven) -  affecting the IC are said to be indicators of upheaval within the family, extended family and home locaion.

 Below is the Full Moon chart set for the West Coast of the USA, San Francisco
Wherever we create a chart for the Full Moon whether on the West or East Coast, the potent Grand Cardinal Cross will dominate with whatever position the  planets (Mars-Uranus-Jupiter or Pluto  are posited).
In this chart, Sagittarius is rising @ 27 degrees 7 minutes which is near the degree for the Galactic Center. Mars now at it's closest point to the Earth is at the top of the chart right at the MC @ 17 degrees Libra. A prominent Mars tends to represent fires (like this one in the Mission District on Tuesday afternoon.),  aggression and accidents in multiple forms. Plus since Mars is the ruler of the Aries Stellium opposing the Libra grouping which also includes Vesta, Ceres and S. Node. Besides signifying violent people, the criminal element in general it also denotes militants and agitators. In this case Mars is connected to sports, athleticism teams like the SF Giants,.  SF Warriors and lots of competitive energy. Plus Mars is applying to oppositions with both Mercury (exact April 16th) and to Uranus (April 23rd) In the next few days we will see the police reports flashing red as conflicts, quarrels and attacks increase along with protests like this one targeting Twitter. ..
Ruler of this chart is Jupiter, the sky god - Zeus and sits in a strong angle intercepted in the 7th. house opposing Pluto. Jupiter now in Cancer aligns with families, issues about food  and opposing Pluto relates to rising food prices. Pluto stationed this afternoon (@4:44 PM) and is now retrograde. Pluto, the lord of destruction is intercepted and in the first house natural house of Aries and Mars. The first house represents interior affairs, urban population shifts, domestic affairs, general conditions and the psychology of the masses . Pluto signifies the power of the masses, compulsive collective, pressures, regeneration, fanaticism and obsession. In an Eclipse chart stressful aspects to Pluto produce volcanoes, earthquakes, oil spills, fires, war, mudslides, avalanches, erosion and anything which involves widespread death and destruction

From my website on April 14th. 
There has been  is massive hype and prophetic promotion leading up to tomorrow's"Blood Moon" eclipse coming after midnight AM on the West Coast of the US and visible in all of North and South America along with the Pacific Ocean region, including Australia and New Zealand. ("The most unique thing about the 2014-2015 tetrad is that all of them are visible for all or parts of the USA," says longtime NASA eclipse expert Fred Espenak). The end of times cadre, Pastor John Hageelike televangelist Pastor John Hagee can't say enough about the four total eclipses (Tetrad) aka "Blood Red Moons" appearing in the skies on the early AM of April 15th. Regarding all the buzz of a blood drenched moon - Per The color of Earth's shadow, and thus the color of the eclipsed Moon, depends substantially on the amount of volcanic ash and other aerosols floating in the stratosphere. According to atmospheric sciences professor Richard Keen of the University of Colorado, the stratosphere is clear. This means the eclipse was not always "blood red," and at times bright orange. Since Neptune-Venus-Chiron in Pisces, a sign relating to prognostication and faith trine Jupiter now in mediumistic Cancer expect to hear more about how these significant eclipses are tied to Israel, prophecy and feast days. Speaking of weird signs in the sky, this image of a Big Black Ring above Leamington Spa, UK on Friday evening has weather pundits baffled. Yes since tomorrow's eclipse has the entire Moon shadowed, the face of the Moon will be turning a sunset-red for up to an hour or more as the event slowly unfolds. As I said on daily forecast for Monday - April 14th. One thing is for sure today, Monday - April 14th, most happenings will NOT unravel slowly. Before you go back to what is one of the busiest days of April, rivaling even Easter Sunday, April 20th. listen to SO News for April 14, 2014 which adds a much more scientific and original analysis. Back to astrology and Monday's confluence of ricochet and boomerang-like aspects triggered by the moon and mars in cardinal, balancing, indecisive, socially-adept and justice-proned Libra. Since there are there are (9) separate lunar and planetary aspects including Pluto, Lord of Transformation and Destruction stationing(exact @ 4:44 PM) and heading retrograde, I won't spend time and list them all. Note that Mars the warrior and ruler of both Aries and Scorpio conjuncts was conjunct the Moon to trigger  added ferocity to the already challenging oppositions to Mercury-Uranus and the Sun in combative and explosive Aries which reflects two deadly blasts that tore through a bus station on the outskirts of Nigeria’s capital, Abuja. Yesterday's news demonstrates how fast moving planets like Mercury when in direct, spontaneous and combative Aries TSQ Pluto and Jupiter in Capricorn/Cancer the solstice signs which all relates to getting the word out about how man-made efforts like hydraulic fracturing create earthquakes - case closed! Yes Mercury in Aries is in a 90 degree angle to Jupiter in Cancer (@ 11:32 AM) when communications involving emergencies on an international scale arise along with continued exposure of moral/ethical failings. Since Mercury also conjuncts Uranus in a sports oriented sign and relates to eccentric behavior like Niners linebacker Aldon Smith getting arrested Sunday at LAX for a bomb threat. Regarding the shocking and strange dramatic twists reflecting current planetary aspects. Keep in mind that Aries represents the push for independence and we add Juno (partnerships) and Sun (leadership) into the mix, Don't even try to keep up with the unique and controversial circumstances that will arise when Mercury (mind/thinking) met Uranus(unexpected and sudden) meet in the sign of trail blazing, Aries.One of the major aspects on Monday  involved Pluto, the Lord of Transformation stationing @ 13 degrees 34 minutes Capricorn (exact @ 4:44 PM) to move retrograde till September 23, 2014. The Sabian Symbol for 14 degrees Capricorn: "An ancient bas-relief carved in granite remains a witness to a long-forgotten culture." This symbol graphically represents longevity and a type of stability in the foundation of our society and culture. Of course with the next Uranus-Pluto waxing square on the horizon (April 21st), it is not a good idea to be stuck in the past or remain inflexible. Whenever Pluto moves into retrograde motion, the process of destroying and rebuilding via turbulent situations and outside forces could intervene on a large scale. On a more inter-personal level you may see people go to extremes and are prepared to cut away anything useless in those areas of life represented by the house where Pluto is transiting...

Updates for April 15th. from my daily forecast After yesterday's non-stop action culminating in a spectacular Total Eclipse which started right after midnight on the West Coast, you are either wiped out or totally invigorated. Afterall this was a long eclipse, with lots of hype and anticipation since Moon spent more than three hours gliding through the shadow of Earth. Yes in some places this beautiful Libra Moon did turn "red" during the transit because the core of our planet's shadow was a reddish color. This eclipse will be followed by another on Oct. 8, 2014, and another on April 4, 2015, and another on Sept. 28 2015, so you have lots of time to observe and photograph. All prophecies and predictions aside this first three more Total Eclipses in a row was quite spectacular as more pictures like this one from Melbourne, Australia are being shown online at galleries like this one.
 Breaking it all down astrologically since Full Moons are always turning points and critical junctures and this was no exception. Luna was Full @ 25 degrees 16 minutes Libra exact at 12:42 AM PDT or 3:42 AM EDT The Sabian Symbol for 26 degrees Libra seemingly offers mixed messages regarding potential wars and the peace process: "An eagle and a large white dove turning constantly into each other." This sympolic image tells of possible confusion as to whether to use force or love in many situations.
At times tough love is needed. Echoes of this symbol are dramatically playing out in the Ukraine where a Ukrainian military op commander threatened: Those who don’t lay arms, will be destroyed This Full Moon in the sign of peace and cooperation tells us that our mind, will and spirit need to be integratred by feelings of the heart in order to temper many dangerous and challenging situations in the world. Moving forward today, we get a brief respite from some of the confusion as the moon entered more passionate yet determined Scorpio @ 9:20 AM. Into the evening, this creative and sexual Scorpio Moon Trines Neptune in Pisces @ 9:39 PM adding to fantasies but also encouraging displays of needed serenity, sensitivity and compassion. Definitely time to kick back and ponder on your personal future... Let's step away for a few minutes from the ongoing confrontations which the current Mercury-Uranus transits in aggressive yet progressive Aries opposing Mars, now retrograde in Libra which reflects frustrations and is usually motivated by strategic action not war. Only by getting an overview of the current potential for massive upheaval, militaristic impulse for takeovers via Mercury/Uranus/Mars TSQ to Pluto which stationed yesterday @ 14 degrees Capricorn, can we possibly understand the perilous nature of the current geo-political situation. In other words there are a lot of powerful and life-changing aspects in to the offing as we head toward Easter on April 20th: (1)Jupiter in Cancer is Square Uranus in Aries which is more about controversy which can continue to spark political unrest and economic tumult. Yet it along with the Mercury-Uranus conjunction in Aries is promulgating an explosion of new discoveries, ideas, inventions, and innovations and in the realm of discovery we are seeing things that are totally unprecedented: first in the realms of space with this shocking find that Saturn May Have Given Birth to a Baby Moon. On the more terrestrial level we have a rare and mysterious find involving a 500-million-year-old embryo fossil.
  (2) Once again we have Jupiter in Cancer opposite Pluto in Capricorn (April 20th) (which already has resulted in Two dead as a ferry sinks off the South Korean Coast
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Dozens of boats, helicopters and divers scrambled Wednesday to rescue more than 470 people, including 325 high school students on a school trip, after a ferry sank off South Korea's southern coast, killing at least two and injuring 14, We also have seen the effects of this transit when it comes to food prices and other inflationary extremes. Corporations/cartels are immersed in profits which border the obscene. When Pluto is involved there can be devastating losses and yes more unnstable financial conditions. One of the areas that will be directly affected from this transit is the availability of food due to weather modification, geo-engineering and GMO per this dark but realistic article (3) Last but definitely not least the mega transit which really has defined this period of time from 2012 to 2015 and was present back in 1931 to 1933 but not with this ferocity: Uranus in Aries is Square Pluto in Capricorn (for the fifth exact waxing square) (exact on April 21st) This is the core transit for massive change which also will continue to trigger geological and technical/man-made disasters. (Hopefully most of the quakes or volcanoes will occur in unpopulated areas like the tremor last night a magnitude 6.9 in the Bouvet Island region. Since Uranus relates to sudden events and in Aries flashpoints and abrupt even unforseen conflicts and Pluto to sweeping, transformative change society and the fabric of culture will shift. "The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance." Alan Watts
