Mars in the 12th house I take action against my own best interest

Published November 22, 2016 by starsmoonandsun

Mars in the natal chart is where we take action, where we are aggressive. Mars rules young men, the military, often referred to as the god of war, it oversees sex and action. Its funny to watch Mars in action; if someone has Mars conjunct Mercury it is most apparent they will talk with their hands a lot. Mars ruler of action will work in unison with Mercury planet of communication.

Mars in the 12th house says: I take action against myself, I take action that goes against my own best interest. The 12th house is home to self undoing, what we don’t see. However everyone else can see what is happening in the 12th house its visible to others just not yourself. Mars is not comfortable in Pisces nor is it comfortable in the 12th house the aggression and focus gets lost, Mars becomes watery; think of the symbolization of Pisces two fish swimming in circles this energy isn’t direct. The person with Mars will stick to a decision to their own detriment; they blatantly refuse to see the choice they have made is not the best one.

I know someone with Mars in the 12th house that made a bad business decision I told them this is not the right choice, this is going to backfire on you in a HUGE way They were quick to deflect and put the issue back on me. That’s the negative side to Pisces and 12th house planets, they play victim, they do not want to take ownership. Mars in 12th house also suffers from misdirected anger. People were begging me not to tell this person about this poor choice as they would take it out on everyone else.

Fast Forward many months the bad choice became too big to ignore, it got out of hand and had to be dealt with. This person would rather die than admit I was right.

Having to be right is an ego thing, I was right I don’t need anyone to confirm this.

My point is those that have Mars in the 12th house should be open to guidance from others, they need to acknowledge that perhaps the action that they take works not for them but against them and most importantly get a hold of your anger. Anger should be dealt with directly; it will take a conscious effort but can be done. When you are upset or feel slighted address it right in that moment if you know you are upset or angry at one person do not take it out on someone else. Release the need to play victim, take ownership of your poor choices, be aware of your skill set; not everyone can excel in all areas in life and that is ok.

A Neptune Affair; you are the dream and I am the dreamer

Published October 22, 2016 by starsmoonandsun

In another life he could have been mine I suppose all of his planets fall in my 7th house and 3 of mine fall in his. Perhaps that is why I had to know him. The 7th house is what you seek in a mate and a part of me felt like wow there you are.  This vague I am so comfortable to be here with you.

7th-house-overlays

I see him through this film this kaleidoscope of colors. I think he is beautiful

I have had this song on repeat for a minute

strange-and-beautiful

 

I was reading a book that said our combined energies is a “gossamer fabric” very beautiful and delicate, light and ethereal.

Neptune is the planet of dreams, addictions, escapism; it rules what you don’t see it over sees fantasies and all things magical.  Neptune eludes, deludes and is evasive. Now you see him now you don’t. My Tarot Reader who knows nothing is particular about my situation pulled out the Magician card a few weeks ago and told me “don’t let him dazzle you with bullshit”. Neptune themed relationships often involve someone with addiction issues, someone looking to be saved and most definitely someone looking to escape.

Sometimes I think Neptune relationships have a difficult time surviving  or even getting off the ground in this cold Saturn ruled world where buying homes and laying down foundations take precedence over dreams and connections on a soul level.  Neptune contacts after all are otherworldly and not of this plane.  The keynotes are telepathy, dreaming of one another, and they are marked by an evasive you just can’t put your finger on them quality.

I have Neptune conjunct my Midheaven, my Neptune is a part of my grand fire trine with moon and Saturn too much reality erodes me, I much prefer the dream the smugness of it all; the gossamer fabric.

Perhaps for someone more cerebral this would never do.

I feel him on the perimeter of me, so close but yet so far. The other day I yelled why are you hiding from me?! And laughed and thought what a Neptunian thing to say, hiding in plain sight. He appears and disappears like a rabbit in a hat. I told him I hope I haunt him forever; I have no doubt I will. One night I will seep into his subconscious while he is on his 7th dream.

 

My Neptune squares his Moon, Mercury and Mars; His Neptune opposes my Venus and Mars.

A lot of talk goes on about who is deceiving who in these connections, perhaps it is neither. Maybe we just deceive ourselves.

I am not sure how he experiences me, he is very clear if not heavy handed in speech and I wonder with my Neptune squaring his Mercury do I bring him some sort of mental confusion. I generally do not talk a lot, not an excess of words. I believe this aspect is said that the Neptune values the intellectual accomplishments of the mercury person but I also feel the Neptune person (moi) is here to teach the mercury person something about spirituality.  A lesson I am going to presume the mercury person doesn’t want to learn  because these two planets meet by square. A square is an obstacle, it shows tension.

With the opposition it has a see saw effect; it is often debated who sees who like a dream. His Neptune opposes my Venus and mars and I see him as this magnificent I don’t even have words to describe sort of way, I tell myself that isn’t who he is that is merely my perception but no matter I see him through that sparkling veneer. It can also be and I have had it the Neptune person project his ideals onto Venus, I dated someone for a year and we had this aspect 100 years later he will say he never loved anyone like me.

These relationships or connections can be marked by forgiveness and compassion so even if something goes wrong an element of –its ok- will permeate.

Neptune relationships are supposed to be the most heart breaking; the dream doesn’t meet the reality. That’s what is written, it offers the promise of paradise that it can’t quite deliver.

Time has taught me to let things be as they are, I do believe what’s meant for you flows to you effortlessly and lets hope whats meant for me strolls in on a pink puffy cloud

Neptune in Synastry A Perfect Illusion

Published September 28, 2016 by starsmoonandsun

Neptune in synastry is a dream; Neptune rules illusions, deceit, con-artists, drug addicts, the victim and the savior.

Neptune corresponds with several Tarot cards one of them being the 7 of cups.

The 7 of cups looks like it has all these wonderful options all these cups are calling you; enticing you with promises of dream fulfilled. All you ever wanted, all you could ever dream of are right before you.

When you see the 7 of cups in a Tarot reading it foretells that A. everything is not what it seems, B. the person you are inquiring about may have addiction issues or C. (in a romance reading) they may have several options and are playing the field.

I have been thinking about Neptune in synastry lately mostly when I hear Lady Gaga’s New Song “Perfect Illusion”

I don’t need eyes to see
I felt you touchin’ me
High like amphetamine
Maybe you’re just a dream
That’s what it means to crush
Now that I’m wakin’ up
I still feel the blow
But at least now I knowIt wasn’t love, it wasn’t love
It was a perfect illusion (perfect illusion)
Mistaken for love, it wasn’t love
It was a perfect illusion (perfect illusion)

Gaga has a pretty hefty Neptune in her natal chart this is what makes her creative but with Neptune also squaring her sun she has to watch for the tendency to pick up men (sun) that have addiction issues or that she sees through this Neptunian filter.

They say nothing brings greater disappointment in love then heavy Neptune in synastry, the dream perhaps never meets the reality.

some-people-are-magic-and-others-are-just-the-illusion-of-it

(According to Abrhahm Hicks disappointment is taking score too soon. I love that)

Projection is very likely in Neptunian theme relationships, particularly with personal planets opposing Neptune you project your desires, hopes and wishes on to the Neptunian person. But people are people and it is hard for them to live up to ideals. If you place any one person on a pedestal it is only a matter of time before they fall.

It is a lot to live up too; being someone’s dream. I have been called a dream and have viewed others as my dream.  It is an impossibility really. Neptune will have you telepathically communicating, walking through portals in between worlds, it feels otherworldly not of this realm and that why perhaps Neptunian theme relationships aren’t meant to last this world is simply too harsh. I don’t think that it is the Neptune person that is always deceiving us perhaps as much as we deceive ourselves. Yearning to escape a world of mundane, drift away on puffy clouds when the cold real world (Saturn) is just too much to take.

Saturn aspecting Venus; This isnt personal its business

Published September 28, 2016 by starsmoonandsun

Lately I have been thinking about love being the antidote for everything & how its important to love people even when they are unlovable. Of coarse from a distance, on a universal level: I see you are a human being made up from the same molecules and stardust as I am so I can love you even you aren’t lovable. I can send you waves of love from the sanctuary of  my own space.

I have written extensively about Saturn in regards to love, I would say I write about Saturn and Pluto the most because these are the two energies I am most familiar with. I have Saturn in the 7th house I have written about this a lot, how those of us with Saturn in the 7th or on Venus (Saturn opposite, conjunct, square to Venus) struggle with divine time in our love lives, how we attract authoritative partners or we have to be the authority in our relationships, how we have to work so hard when it comes to love, the way we use defense mechanisms to hold people apart from us. We cant take rejection, we can set the bar very high in love, we can meet people at the wrong time, we can meet people that aren’t available and anyone we do meet usually has a heavy karmic debt or element to it.

Where ever Saturn is; life is hard, life is difficult. As a cure to my own Saturn in the 7th I think to myself if you hurt me I will love you –from a distance any way- I have made a conscious effort to not set the bar so high that people have to climb to some idealized height. When something feels uncomfortable and I wish the whole earth would swallow me whole I will stay and face it. I have decided the next time I find love I will put the work in instead of running for my life because this seems “so hard”. And I will accept that my relationships will never be equal, never on equal footing that someone will always run the show though in all honesty I would rather someone else take charge. If I trust you to lead I will surely follow. Saturn in the 7th believes in traditional roles, conservative relationships that last. And I do believe in love the kind that captures your soul.

I was thinking about the men I attract that have Venus in hard aspect to Saturn; these arent warm and fuzzy men I suppose. These are the type of men that put work over love, that have blocks to love, the types that might bail if they sense that you may require too much. Some that may take an intimate expression as a sign of being needy. People that have Venus in hard aspect to Saturn are often not comfortable with physical expressions of love, Saturn is the planet of Authority, business, coolness, structure, restriction and aspecting Venus planet of love and leisure they likely have blocks to love. They are not at ease expressing love and affection. They may chose work over love, hide behind their work, keep love at a distance and deep down believe that they are unworthy of great love. They may forgo real love all together believing it is simply too hard or unrealistic.

I must tweet once a week

We have to let it all go, people only love you from their own levels of consciousness

I wanted to caution those of you  (and perhaps remind myself) that have met someone with Venus in aspect to Saturn to not take it personally this is their issue. Sometimes we have to leave people to do the fucked up things they do, sometimes we have to recognize that people have blocks and defense mechanisms within them so high and so deeply embedded in their unconscious minds that an lifetime may pass and they will still hold love apart from themselves.

My advice: Don’t take it personal love them any way recognize it is all their loss. They may very well let a lifetime pass them by never knowing what it is like to let someone in close enough to see the texture of their soul In the words of Dr Wayne Dyer if-you-meet-a-soul

“you’re needy” the air and water sign dilemma

Published September 25, 2016 by starsmoonandsun

I have been called needy before I have been told I require too much attention. I attract mostly air sign men though Libra and Gemini will be the two that most often label me this. Something about Aquarius suns they understand me most they really get me out of all the air signs. Perhaps that is because I have Aquarius rising.

I am not needy and laugh at the utter absurdity of labeling me as such. But generally speaking I dislike labels. I have an Aries Moon this it itself means I do not need anyone (the moon rules your needs and Aries is the sign of self). I am comfortable alone, I am actually quite the loner not particularly social So when someone labels me needy I really want to tell them instead of affixing me with such an insulting adjective why don’t you apologize for having the inability to actually meet my needs. Isn’t that really the case when someone calls you needy? This is their way of confessing they have an inability to give you what you desire

“People only see you from their level of perception”

Water and Air signs do not understand one another on an ego level…on an identity level. Though I am inclined to say water signs appreciate air signs intelligence I love someone intelligent it’s admirable to be well read to know facts and figures on topics I have really no strong interest in.  I as a Cancer sun can celebrate the more cerebral parts of a person. After all I do have Venus in Gemini and feel that love can first begin in the mind and nothing is as beautiful as a man with a big vocabulary. But I still possess a water sign sun and nothing could describe me more than the quote below:

it-doesnt-interest-me-in-what-you-do-for-a-living

But we live in a society where intellect and achievement is valued over intuition and feeling. And here is where water signs are often labeled needy…our contributions aren’t celebrated like air signs and air signs rarely if ever can understand us. I am not sure they even try; sometimes I feel they are quick to dismiss us so easily feeling swept up under a wave of our emotion.

Air signs project qualities onto us without actually communicating or asking what we need or desire they so often think they know everything.

I dated a Gemini man that would always say to me “I don’t want to talk about having children”  this man assumed I wanted children he never even bothered to ask me …I surely would have  told him I don’t want any.

They see us only through their level of perception and that level of perception is what they think we need/feel/desire without having any real knowing of what we need/feel/desire

Air signs need to be free and have the most difficult times relating to others on an emotional level. If you think of air it’s the breath and they need plenty of room to breathe and roam. Air signs never want to feel held down they have the fear of suffocation…that’s an air sign for you. They filter everything through the mind and love if anything has no place being sorted out through intellect. It must be felt.

Water signs however use intuition to process everything we are formless like air yet we seek someone to house us and be our container. Water signs seek to emotionally connect, we want to merge with you on a soul level we want you to house and be a safe place for our ever changing emotional states.

Water signs use touch and non verbal communication as modes of expression

So while air signs tend to think we are all up there ass we are simply communicating without words how much we like/admire/desire them

Air signs use words as a means of expression.

I do believe this can be sorted out if water signs would allow air signs that room to breathe and if air signs would acknowledge and celebrate that we don’t need them we merely connect through physical and intimate expression.

I think water and air have a great deal to teach one another with air encouraging water to be more rational and detached and with water teaching air to get out of their head and into their heart. Water can teach air that in essence not everything that counts can be counted.

Liz Greene writes in her book “relating”

“The airy type has a problem with feeling…because feelings like everything else which comes under his microscopic eye cannot be classified, structured, analyzed or fitted into the framework”

She goes onto say about the air signs

“His richest relationships will be with the feeling types for they are both his greatest fascination and the reflection of his own inner self”

Greene goes on to mention that water signs have a “problem with reason”

And that “water is magnetically attracted to air and if these two types could cease their endless skirmishing they could learn much from each other about their own unconscious lives”

For a long time now I feel we should just accept people as they are without labeling them one thing or another. The truth of the matter is people cannot be boxed in, we are multifaceted human beings and often the things we love about someone are the same features we devalue overtime. (See the Before Sunrise trilogy) Water signs are drawn to air signs for the way they can be objective and analytical and air signs love water for their creative energy and for having a way of tapping into what the air sign needs on a subconscious level to diminish and weaken these connections with adjectives such as needy (water signs) and shallow (Air signs) is an assault on the very soul of what we love most about one another.

The Astrology of Brad and Angelina’s Divorce

Published September 20, 2016 by starsmoonandsun

brad-and-angelina

I don’t have a personal opinion on Brad or Angelina as I am not really a fan of either. I do however have an affinity for anyone that adopts children I think it is one of the most selfless acts a person can do.

The Divorce is quite obvious angelina-jolie-divorce-transits

Uranus is squaring Angelina’s Venus in Cancer though it never reached an exact square one would presume a divorce or separation would be eminent . Venus in your natal chart along with your 7th house and the ruler of the 7th house all relate to relationships and partnerships. Uranus is the planet of the unexpected and yes separation it is often prominent in the charts of people that file for divorce (though not always). Angelina Jolie has Venus square Uranus in her natal chart which reflects her several marriages. This is often in the charts of people that marry more then one time. Elizabeth Taylor famous for her multiple marriages has Uranus conjunct Venus Via progression Angelina’s natal Venus square Uranus is almost exact indicating a break up or separation is likely

Uranus rearranges whatever it touches, it shakes things up, breaks things up, awakens us and brings sudden abrupt changes.

It isnt always mentioned but when Uranus transits the 10th house -as is the case with Angelina you see a change in marital status. the 10th house rules your reputation and how you are publicly seen so clearly marriage and divorce change this.

brad-pitt-divorce-transits

 

Brad Pitt has Venus in Capricorn and today the exact day they have filed for divorce Uranus is squaring his natal Venus so here we have the theme of separation, a break up etc

When a couple has Venus signs in the same mode (Cardinal, Fixed, Mutable) they will be challenged at the same time. It can be very difficult because one person  cant be the voice of reason when 2 people are both itching to sever ties.

I have discussed this before with Ben Affleck’s divorce You can read more about this here: PREDICTING DIVORCE AND A LITTLE BEN AND JEN

(Though clearly they seem to be attempting to make it work, Ben Affleck has moon in Scorpio however destructive he may be this can be a sign committed to family in its own right)

Brad Pitt also has Saturn sitting on the Ascendant, the 1st house cusp. When Saturn leaves the 12th house and crosses into the 1st it is a time to get serious about what we want. The 1st house is YOU, its the first house, it rules our first breath, its the start of the chart. When a planet transits there we are asked to consider; what do I want? You also have to think in terms of polarities what happens in the 1st also influences the 7th-which is the house of marriage.

It is reported that Brad had an “affair” let it be noted that my astrology instructor said  you can cheat when a planet is in the 12th house after all the 12th house is the closet, it holds our secrets but once a planet crosses into the 1st your secrets will be revealed. The 12th house -no one sees not even you-it holds our self undoing but the 1st house everyone sees.

Brad Pitt also has Uranus squaring his Moon- the moon rules the women in your life, it also rules your home where you live .  Most recently Johnny Depp had this transit we all see how that turned out.

Lastly we take a look at the Composite chart this is the energy of two people coming together; what do they create. Everyone is different  with different people and the composite chart shows how you function together as unit.

brad-and-angelina-composite-chart

Uranus here is prominent it is opposite the composite Venus and here we have those themes of divorce and separation. Also Jupiter is about to enter the 1st house this transit is one known to seek freedom (interestingly enough they first got together when Jupiter entered the composite 1st house their relationship lasted one full Jupiter cycle)  and  this last eclipse hit there Composite Sun head on. The Composite Sun is the life force of the couple, the identity  a full moon eclipse often signify endings, completion and the end of an era.

Pluto Conjunct Sun in Synastry “Something about you has given me a heightened curiosity to know you better”

Published September 19, 2016 by starsmoonandsun

comet-movie-quotes

This is a quote from the movie Comet

I think it pretty much sums up a Pluto conjunct Sun in synatsry

I met someone recently and this is exactly how I feel, I need to know him no rhyme no reason.

Just this vague curiosity that sort of gnaws at you, a whisper a light come hither

Subtle Pluto is always subtle….until it isn’t LOL the drive is unconscious

Instinctively I knew my Pluto had to be on his Sun.

I prefer Pluto in synastry, the depth, the darkness, the transformation

I have Pluto on my Sun natal so this is going to be mirrored in my relationships with men

I always say I would chose Pluto over Saturn anytime

I would rather climb out of the fiery pits of hell but at least I will be reborn

If you don’t master Pluto, Pluto will master you. Where Pluto is in your natal chart is where you will experience things beyond your control

Pluto is square my Sun from the 8th house; all relationships with men are these transformational journeys-feel my eyes roll-

I have learned to harness the energy if you don’t and you are like me attracting Plutonian men and situations you will always attract situations where power plays take center stage. It takes an evolved person to work with Pluto.

Pluto is the planet of power; who harnesses it, who exerts it and who holds it. When you have 2 unevloved people with heavy Pluto contacts you have what I call the –check mate –situation one always holding court over the other.

Its always strange to me when you know astrology you can feel the energy that is activated when you meet someone

Pluto has to do with control, so knowing my Pluto is on this Mans sun I’m controlled  I am grounded I am conscious of the energy I am putting out

In Jewel Mayberry’s Youtube Video (See here)  Sun conjunct Pluto she described Pluto Conjunct Sun in a way I never quite thought of

“the sun person makes them (Pluto) feel warm where usually these are the cold, dark, parts of themselves ”

“You (Pluto) are use to it being zero degrees but now its 90 (Sun)”

After I kissed him I tweeted

Kissing you was like being dead for a thousand years and being brought back to life.

How Pluto conjunct Sun can I get? Pluto rules death and the sun is the life force

During a conversation he mentioned something alluding to ruining his life.

In Jewel Mayberry’s video on sun conjunct Pluto she mentioned

“The sun person can see the Pluto person as a threat to their identify”

Pluto is an agent of change, Pluto transforms whatever it touches so while I was annoyed at the implication I was reminded that Pluto can perhaps come off as an imminent threat to the Sun persons identity

When I see him again I will try to travel lightly as to not send him running for the hills after all I haven’t I finished knowing him and Pluto loves unearthing whatever it touches bit by bit
