Lecture: Archetypes, Astrology and the Soul of the Cosmos. this Friday Evening (Feb 21)

Strange energies–yes, big astrological energies, not “just the usual”.

Random thoughts about Time and Aging and, well, where are we now.

How to improve almost anything.

1. Lecture: Archetypes, Astrology and the Soul of the Cosmos (by Anne B.) 6:30 pm, AOMA South, Austin, Texas. (4701 West Gate Blvd)

OK, bottom line here:  If you really “get” archetypes, you can read the mind of the universe.  This lecture will trace the path that brought me to this realization, and will offer you practical ways to use these patterns to understand and improve your life.  I’ll look forward to seeing you there if you can make it!

2. Astroweather:
The “Wandering” Planets
and the Wacko Year

Yes, it’s still the year of wacko

wandering planets.  What is unusual is the VERY long sequence of retrogrades of personal planets, one after another, giving us a total of barely a month “free” before July.  I’d say it’s a year of false starts, but also of slipping unexpected things through the cracks in the system.  To catch you up,

1. Venus is no longer retro-grade.  I lift my absolute restriction on starting new relationships….BUT….

2. Mercury is now retrograde, through Feb 28. Good for research, review, reconsiderations.  Not good for contracting new things (unless you do that all the time, in which case it’s nothing new, right?). Watch luggage, timing, etc. if you travel.  Engage patience for computer glitches–in fact for any technical glitch.

3. THIS month (February) and next (March) we’ve got the same tight collisions between not only Uranus (surprises, rebellion) and Pluto (ultimate power), but a slower than usual Jupiter makes it bigger, and the transiting Moon a few days ago engaged emotional responses.  Look at the situation in Ukraine to see how these forces play out if a person (or country) has planets involved in this pattern.  If you were born near the beginning of January, April, July or October you’ll be seeing this in your own life.  (Other points can also deliver this energy directly to you, but a personal chart analysis is necessary to determine this.)

The tensions we’ve been living with this year are supercharged.  Jupiter, while a benefic, makes bigger anything it interacts with.  In this case what’s getting bigger is self-righteous and irrational power struggles.  Watch it play out in the world scene over the next six weeks.  And reign in any tendency toward self-righteous anger if you encounter others who may trigger you.

4. IMMEDIATELY, on March 1, Mars goes retrograde til MAY 19th.  Mars is the DO-er.  This is a good time to go back and redo (or finish) something you’ve left hanging for a while.  It’s a long time, so you might be able to get a lot redone.  Just don’t count on others to do what they say.  Mars isn’t strong in Libra in the first place–to busy trying to be nice to accomplish anything.  You may get sweet words and promises, but actions will be low.  During this period the Uranus/Pluto Jupiter combo becomes very agitated and MARS (the Retrograde for this month) becomes tied up in it by the end of April.  Watch out for bombs of one sort or another.

5. May 19 Mars goes direct just 19 days later Mercury goes retrograde again, this time in Cancer and Gemini, stationing trine Neptune.  We’ll all be subject to the fantasy of glamour and apt to believe anything at this point.  Please don’t jump into any life-changing situation til after Mercury goes direct on July 1 (and avoid jumping into your fantasy around July 18, also).
