Anne Taylor Loft & Yup Astrology

Two or so weeks ago I cut my hair to just above my shoulder, truth be told I wanted to go back to brunette temporarily but I’m unable to do so because all the pictures I use for acting are me as a blonde. I can cut my hair, shave it, dye it, braid It, hide it beneath a wig personally I do not care; I’m not emotionally attached to my hair. I never really understood women that cry if its cut “too short” or flip out if the color isn’t that perfect ombre shade they wanted or worse yet women who have never cut their hair. I don’t get it I really don’t. Needless to say changing hairstyles is nothing new I’m actually very good at it in terms of French twists and curls etc but when I walked by Anne Taylor Loft and drooled in the window at the knee length skirts and boat neck chiffon dresses this gave me pause for some very serious introspection. I have a passion for fashion (Neptune on the 10th house) but not of the Anne Taylor Loft/ J Crew Variety I can assure you. Still there I was at work mixing and matching outfits, piling up my virtual shopping bag oh the pastel pink pants and black pencil skirt were to die for. I never actually completed the purchase because I just kept thinking this is just so not me. I shop at places no one has heard of to wear things that no one has seen. I never get why celebrities end up on the red carpet in the same outfit. Wasn’t that Oscar Del a Renta contracted as one of a kind? I pack a 2nd outfit in my Honda trunk in the event that someone is dressed like me in a random restaurant in New York City. I like hot pink, sequence, shiny gold and silver but here I was oddly fascinated by Anne Taylor a retailer originally owned and operated by a man from ah…. Connecticut. Visions of Anne Taylor Loft danced around in my head the following day as I was getting ready to attend an astrology class. Out of my closet I selected a sweater vest (YES a sweater vest) with a white colored shirt underneath, in my mind I calculated mathematical figures, how much would it cost to redo my entire wardrobe, maybe I can wear pearls after all. No No! That is taking a bit too far. I thought this is really fucking weird. Maybe it’s a phase, I’m 35 maybe this is what people are suppose to do after 30 shop at the GAP and Banana Republic. I don’t know I’m eternally young (Venus in Gemini, Aquarius Rising and Sun in the 5th house) Forever child like who knows. I thought still calculating how much it would cost to buy the entire spring line at Anne Taylor Loft.
In astrology class we were discussing changes to one’s health and appearance. My brilliant instructor remarked:
Transits to the 6th house (house of health) or transits to the ruler of the 6th house indicate internal issues such as disease and sickness.
And
Transits to the 1st house (your appearance) or the ruler of the first house will cause structural changes; you’ll cut your hair, maybe you will have an accident etc.
I have Aquarius rising, Uranus rules Aquarius, Aquarius is in my natal 8th house, Saturn is currently conjoining my Uranus AKA chart ruler I wrote about that here. http://starsmoonandsun.com/tag/transiting-saturn-conjunct-natal-uranus/

Ah-ha moment Saturn is a conforming or as I prefer to say confining energy, It assimilates where as Uranus is rebellious.
Ann Taylor and haircuts all make sense, supposedly when Saturn conjuncts a natal planet, it silences it and after the conjunction you will emerge a new.
I wonder who I will be when this transit is over. What will I wear?!
I can rock some cute pencil skirts and a cardigan but If you see me and I’m showcasing one of those little sweaters around my neck please use it to strangle me and if you ever see me with something bedazzled or bejeweled please use them to stone me.
Thank You
Sincerely an Aquarius rising but future conservative*

Pluto Transits to the Midheaven

All the cardinal signs are feeling the crunch; YES hello that is you Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. Look at your natal chart and see where you have cardinal planets or points to see where Pluto planet of transformation is at work, for me Pluto is opposing my cancer sun (Capricorn is opposite of cancer) and squaring my Aries moon. While Pluto is digging, shall I say gutting out the cardinal signs in some manner, Uranus planet of sudden change is placed in Aries and will soon square my sun and conjoin my moon. If you are a cardinal sign the universe has undoubtedly signed you up for some dramatic changes, like it or not. For better or worse. For me the first of these changes have begun with Pluto conjoining my progressed Midheaven in Capricorn. Just as human beings do not stay the same, we change we grow, our chart changes somewhat and this is known as progressions. That is the short story.

This is what Pluto has in store for those of you that have a midheaven in a Cardinal sign; death, rebirth and transformation. In my previous post I explained how the people I work with have similar patterns in there solar return indicating we would experience some level of change in the year. How much change quite frankly I was unable to see although I knew it wouldn’t be good. It has been beyond not good, it has been excruciating and I feel as though someone is gutting me like a fish. Someone said to me I have to get use to it and “I’m sorry you don’t like change”. Uh no that couldn’t be further from the truth, I’m a Aquarius rising I enjoy shaking up the status quo My 8th house (home to transformation) holds Uranus and Pluto, I breathe change, I laugh in the face of it….ordinarily. Now today at the present moment; not so much.

I now know how people feel that work in corporate America and watch people in the cubical next to them pack up a box and go; I wonder who will be at work when I return from my two days off. Once my boss saying “We didn’t know if we should call you or we shouldn’t. We didn’t want to bother you on your days off”. I’m like call me; I want to know who is no longer employed prior to getting to work.

There is apart of me that wants to hide, if I’m 100% honest I want to hide away from the world. Why didn’t I become an accountant I yelled the other day. Truth is I can’t add or use a calculator;) I’m not in a position to hide, to run, to take 3 months off to catch myself; I work in a customer service based industry, a place where I’m told 3 people were laid off and 5 were fired but go outside and make sure to smile! My colleague that is on reduced work week, meaning she comes in occasionally said wow this place doesn’t even feel the same. Indeed I feel like we are dying in a way. Pluto rules death not always in a literal sense.

I’m a big fan of change but I’m not of the belief that all change is good, or that change for the sake of change is progress….quite frankly it isn’t.

Many people have been laid off and the powers in charge chopped our shifts quite frankly going into work I have no idea who I will be working with. Every day is like a surprise. When I walk into the building I say “Welcome to so & so where your future is unclear and your nipples are always hard”. I swear they have lowered the heat in an attempt to save money. So we attend daily meetings that are prefaced with plastic smiley faces and we have the pleasure of having smoke blown fully up our ass as they strip the marble from underneath our feet. Pluto rules renovation so it should come as no surprise liquidators are buying furniture, I can guarantee the once beautiful floors will now be updated with carpet. Termination, transformation, renovation…what is next will be anyone’s guess.

When this first began to transpire I thought I was going to be the pillar of strength, instructing co- workers, let’s not complain it will only make things more difficult. I do maintain that complaining solves nothing and it is my hope I will become tight lipped and loosen my firm grip on the reality that I have so firmly held onto that no longer exists. That one day I’m not crying in the bathroom on my lunch break. I will go with the flow more on Monday I tell myself, I will let go, that’s what I told myself last Monday Ok maybe NEXT Monday . Maybe next Monday I will feel better.

I work a late night shift now so I have to go to the grocery store and battle the senior citizens wheeling there cart without a care in the world because they have nowhere to go. It’s like some sort of bumper cars for the over 80. I use to go at midnight when it was empty, but now I’m still at work. To go to work, I leave around the same time the kids get out of school and are shocked daily at the audacity of women in minivans double parked or driving like lunatics to get their children from school. I find people in this country that have children think this entitles them to a lot including the 1st 50 parking spaces at target. Uh no. I have shit to carry too.

So I drive and I park by Plutonic loves parents house daily because he is the closest block to the train where I don’t have to feed a meter, I pray to never see him because quite frankly these days I’m not very happy. I rush into the day battling the New York City wind with my purse obviously, a lunch box because the food in my work cafeteria is no longer editable and I secretly swear they are attempting to kill us in order to avoid laying us off and having to pay unemployment, so with my purse, my lunch box Oh and my other bag with my uniform because our lockers have been under renovation for a year I scurry onto the train only to have my bag break, my lunch, my clothes and my tampons flying to the floor insuring I miss my stop. I gather my stuff with the assistance of gentlemen that looks like he probably throws up gang symbols in his free time. It’s been a hard week I said; taking a seat contemplating riding the train till the last stop just to catch a breather, all this transformation is exhausting here is too hoping next Monday is better and if not next Monday perhaps the Monday after that.

Living with Pluto in the 8th house

Usually I plaster some catchy title, but let’s be honest Pluto and the 8th house do not need cheesy catch phrases or introductions.
Pluto planet of death and rebirth is at home in the 8th house and I’m accustomed to Pluto in the 8th house considering it has been there my entire life, people experiencing this via transit may be privy to some sudden and life altering experience and it can be quite alarming because they are not accustomed to the energy. I think if you have a planet nataly over time you will learn to harness that planets energy, have it work for you instead of against you.
The back story on Pluto
Pluto rules: death in all manners, physically, metaphorically, spiritually and rebirth. Pluto rules power, the fight for power, perhaps for some feeling powerless, control, domination, darkness, depth, endings, and beginnings. Pluto’s Nickname is Lord of the Underworld. Look to the natal house that holds Pluto to see where you fight for control, where you will meet powerful people and where you will die and be reborn.
The back story on the 8th house
The 8th house rules similar things that is why Pluto is comfortable there, death rebirth, power, it also rules joint resources…you look to the 8th house to see what will occur with people you share money with. This can be a bank, a spouse, a business partner, the 8th house also rules sex; I’m going to say the darker part of sex not the light and fuzzy part look to the 5th house for unicorns and hand holding. I have the Sun in the 5th so yes I do believe in fairytales 😉
Pluto in the 8th house manifestation
Change and Transformation
I have been thinking about Pluto in the 8th house lately, how it manifests for me and what they do not tell you in Astrology 101 textbooks. A “psychic” once told me; you bring men face to face with who they are and this makes it difficult for you to have relationships or friendships because people do not want to know who they are, they prefer to hide. I have been thinking about this lately. Torn between the notion of accepting people as they are or catapulting them to a better truer existence. I have an issue with this; I have an issue with accepting people as they are. I think in personal relationships we should seek to bring people to live there highest potential. I’m unsure if we should allow people we care about to perpetuate there less than glowing attributes. In personal relationships don’t we want to be involved with those that deliver us to our higher selves? Don’t we want someone that holds us accountable?
That is the deal with Pluto in the 8th house, Pluto is a probing planet when making an aspect to another person’s personal planet (Sun, Moon Mercury, Venus, Mars) in synastry or perhaps our own personal planet we seek to transform that planet. If Pluto in on your Sun or someone else’s, we wish to change their identity, if it’s on the moon we wish to purify and strip old feelings and replace them with new. It represents a cathartic transformative process, purge the old and make room for the new. Death and Rebirth. Personally I’m always changing; I have Pluto in my 8th house aspecting my sun, moon, mercury and Venus and is a part of a cardinal t square. Plutonian energies are always at work.
That being said, I have began to question my own motives, the fact that I wish to transform people. I do think at times who the fuck am I? If someone is happy screwing up there life, living a lie or in some faux relationship, let them. Ah but Pluto is Compulsive, to me it represents truth. Textbooks say With Pluto in the 8th house this is indicative of having the power to transform other peoples’ lives. Its compulsive really, I find myself digging and probing, the more reserved someone is the more I want to get in there, get inside and figure them out and truth be told once I get in there I’m gone, I lose interest. Mission Completed. I like to go where others fear to go, explore emotional depths and visit the crawl spaces of peoples mind.
The Truth
Pluto in the 8th is on a quest for meaning and truth. You can skip the pleasantries and the how was your weekend bullshit. And don’t even think about lying to me, because I know. People with Pluto in the 8th house pick up on the undercurrents. I also prefer heavy conversations; preferably the less long winded the better. This isn’t a placement for mincing words. I ask questions that others wouldn’t dare ask and people actually tell me there truths. Not all but most. I don’t do frivolous conversation and I hate meaningless chit chat. I want to know if you think you are married to the wrong person and which child of yours is your favorite? One of my favorite book series is: Post Secret I have the collection; people write in to a PO BOX there darkest secrets anonymously. I love that idea, write it down, send it in and free your soul. I have 0 judgments when it comes to confessions; I think the truth is a gateway like astrology to greater understanding. Pluto in the 8th house is a natural born psychologist.
Extreme in temperament, power struggles and death oh my
I’m a person of extremes; love/hate beautiful/ugly. I think I unconsciously seek out relationships with power struggles. Was I the only kid in camp that “dated” my camp counselor? Probably. Power struggles, digging, searching, changing and oh yeah dying. People always die on me, I can discuss death the way most people would talk about chores, it’s just with Pluto in the 8th house you are accustomed to it. I’m not the one to hold your hand when you 101 year old grandmother died, just saying. Like my fellow 8th house Pluto friend would say, call me when you lost a parent, a grandparent before the 6th grade.
Crisis
Pluto in the 8th is great during an emergency, I can handle high-pressure situations with ease, but have me miss my train to work or misplace my house keys and I’m crying in my purse and cursing at the top of my lungs. I always find that to be a weird dichotomy in my personality. I also fee easily wounded, Cancer Sun in the 5th house can be very needy, fragile but eventually I see my way through the tears, heart break and disappointment and use it to transform into some one greater.
Where is Pluto in your Natal Chart and how is he working for you?

Changes in work, who got fired, who was laid off and who remains employed while suffering

I knew something big was going to happen at work when we were bought by an investment company. A hotel, once owned by Royalty who hosted a grand opening to some of the highest rates in Manhattan, there were days we feast on filet mignon, were privy to car rides home if we worked late, there were raffles each holiday party iPods were given out along with trips to Napa Valley, Hold Up! Fast Forward to present day where tap water is on the menu along with chestnuts yes chestnuts and rice. Last time I checked I was not a squirrel. I like to review the charts of the people I work with it makes for great practice. I examined the charts of several people. One that was let go, one person that is on a reduced work week, one that is on complete lay off and the rest of us that are made to suffer with construction noise, more work and less people, rearranged schedules, never mind the sadness that our entire lives have been rearranged. So long Black Card Holding guests hello to those bearing plastic bags instead of luggage and carrying coolers to avoid going to the actual bar. Hmm wait Do we still have a bar? In any event no one is going to pay $700.00 a night when a property is under renovation so Expedia and Travel Zoo it is. I have reviewed the charts of my coworkers and will outline the themes I have noticed in the solar return charts I have studied. Oddly they all have a similar signature. The 10th house of career and life direction is highlighted as well as the 6th house of daily habits and actual work etc. One thing is clear everyone whos chart I reviewed indicated we are a long way off from filet mignon….
A. Person A Was Let Go/Terminated See Chart

The natal 6th house which rules, habits, daily work, your routine, your schedule, what you do on a regular basis is on the solar return 12th house. The 12th house rules sorrow, hardship, isolation, prisons, asylums, self undoing, and sickness.

Person A has this both ways; the natal 6th on the solar return 12th and the solar return 6th on the natal 12th; sorrow over loss of job, perhaps feeling imprisoned by his or her current situation, sorrow and loss. The 12th and 6th are not joyous houses. He/She does however have Jupiter in the 12th house of the solar return which can act as a guardian angel offering protection.

Uranus the planet of unexpected change is placed in his natal 12th house falling into his/her solar return 6th house, indicating a sudden change in routine, shaking things up, unplanned and unexpected change.
The Solar Return Uranus is located in the Solar Return 10th house of career and reputation. Again indicating change, this is further enhanced by the moon, the moon indicates fluctuating circumstances.

B. Myself Still Employed
I’m the last to go due to my position as a Union Rep so I’m here till the building burns down or I find another job I suppose. I’m ½ way through my solar return. I have the Solar Return 6th house on the natal 12th house. Mercury is placed in the Solar Return 12th house falling into the 6th house; I work in the travel industry so I talk often at work. Mercury in the 6th indicates, talkative coworkers and a job where you speak and multi task regularly. Mercury rules the mind, thoughts and communication with it being placed in the 12th conjoining my natal Saturn in the 6th, mercury on Saturn can give a serious if not depressed mind. I can tell you my mind is burdened, I also seek solitude, but unfortunately I cannot escape because I’m required to be a part of many conversations and discussions regarding employee rights. People are depending on me.

Similar to the person that was let go I have this twofold; the solar return 12th is also on the natal 6th. Feeling imprisoned by day to day tasks, anguish, I have a strong desire to escape and feel stuck in my current situation.

I do have Solar Return Jupiter and Venus in the solar return 10th house which is a very fortunate aspect. Obviously I’m still employed so I’m grateful but I think this stems more from my side activities, acting and writing. I also moved and bought my own home, which is indicated by the solar return 10th house falling into the natal 3rd house (writing) and 4th house (real-estate)

C. Still Employed
The Solar Return 10th house on the natal 12th house, again the 10th house rules your career, your life’s direction falling into the 12th house of sorrow, confinement, as well as confusion.
The Solar return 6th house of work and daily habits is falling into the natal 8th house of shared resources, death, transformation indicating life as you know it is going to serve you with a complete metamorphism. The Solar return 8th house is also on the natal 10th house indicating death and rebirth to your overall life’s direction.
Saturn in the natal 8th is also falling into the solar return 6th house Saturn is the planet of restriction I have Saturn natally in the 6th this position indicates additional responsibilities, having to do more than your share of work….we have the same amount of work with less people. With Jupiter falling into the natal 8th this person may receive financial assistance from someone.

D. Co-Worker Still Employed
The Solar Return 10th house on the natal 6th house this can indicate you are working (6th house) for your superiors, being a slave to those in charge. The Sun and Mercury are placed there as well indicating this is going to be a strong focus point for the year. The Solar Return Ascendant is also falling into the natal 10th house indicating this is a strong focus, perhaps this person will look for employment elsewhere. With Saturn Falling into the natal 6th similar to my other coworker extra work is indicated.

E. Layoff Employee till further notice
Uranus planet of change is falling into the solar return 6th house indicating change to daily habits and yes work. Once again the 6th house is activated and placed in the 8th house home to transformation, death and rebirth. This colleague visited the other day and gasped this doesn’t even feel like the same place. This theme continues with the solar return 8th house falling onto the solar return 10th house of career. The solar return 10th house also holds the moon indicating fluctuation

F. Someone Leaving on own accord
The last person has Uranus in the solar return 1st house falling into the natal 10th house indicating change in career and life direction, more likely then not due to your choice. You are directing the direction of your life with the 1st house in the natal 10th house. The Solar Return 10th house is also on the natal 6th house once again indicating being a slave to superiors

In short if a career house (6th or 10th) falls on an unfortunate house (12th or 8th) this isn’t going to be an amazing year at your place of employment. With the Moon or Uranus placed in the 6th or 10th expect some sudden changes. Saturn in the 6th you will be working your ass off!

Once Upon a Time, Mazzy Star and Neptune Square Natal Venus Transit

once upon a timeclockimagesCA1ESM6SimagesCAUM0JOXTransit Neptune Squaring my natal Venus is the only major transit I have right now, though Pluto in Capricorn opposing my natal Sun is well on its way and even closer is Pluto in Capricorn squaring my natal moon in Aries. I expected this transit to be a “feel good one”. Ah not so fast. When does it end I want to throw my hands up into the sky. Apparently not until sometime NEXT year. I cried today while grocery shopping I always wonder why am I never given the opportunity to dream a bit. Recently I was telling a story to someone; I had a date with some guy ; many years ago. We went back to house, nothing happened but I had taken off this very heavy gladiator bracelet I had on and put it on his sofa table. He gave me a tour of his place and upon seeing his walk in closet I exclaimed, “Wow I can fit all my shit in here”. Next thing I knew he was handing me my bracelet and quickly escorting me to my car. I knew he wouldn’t call; quite frankly I was 22 and didn’t care. When he handed me the bracelet I felt this surge of energy, the I’m never calling you again I’m not ready for you to move all your shit into my house energy.

This tale is indicative of my entire existence with men, and lately the question has been on my mind; why can’t I just dream a little bit. Why is every beginning so obviously marred with a tragic ending. Why do things end before they begin? I watch other people conduct entire faux relationships you know who they are, they dress alike, perhaps one is always cheating but there are these large enouncements concerning there relationship on face book, perhaps they even share a facebook account (not that anything is wrong with that) and I’m like who is actually believing this shit show. It all seems so very transparent. With that being said I would like to dream for awhile, I would like to be that naive to believe what someone tells me, never question and dare not know any better. But I’m not afforded this and I would like to know why?

The technical stuff
Neptune is currently in its sign of rulership Pisces; it will remain in Pisces until 2025! Neptune rules dreams, illusions, addictions, charlatans, deceptions, self sacrifice. Neptune is currently squaring my Venus in Gemini; Venus rules love, beauty, finance,and sex to some extent. Text books say during this transit you are in danger of picking up liars, schemers, martyr, expierence problems with finance, people taking advantage of you and indiscrimination when selecting a partner. They say it is better to wait until after this transit is complete to enter into a relationship, I say sign me the fuck up, I want to dream! Bob Mark the Astrologer so eloquently put it you are prone to like people because of their issues “Oh you poor little thing. I know you’re an alcoholic, a junkie, a con-artist, and tri-sexual. Let me marry you and make you all better! Do yourself a favor and use the magic number instead. Please memorize it. It is 911. Dial that and have them taken away. Let a professional take care of them”

My issue is more of the fact that I don’t get the chance to dream I would love to have some moments where I can escape (Neptune rules escapism) my daily life! I want to listen to Mazzy Star (Neptune and Venus rule music) and dance around my living room with someone while drinking some wine (Neptune rules alcohol) Venus can rule excess. I can say with direct honesty that I’m looking for an escape from my day to day existence and none has been provided. I want the pleasure of believing even if it isn’t true; instead here I’m in reality everything so painfully obvious. Never permitted to dream. I listen to women tell me, oh I know he has no job”, but I really love him”. And I think hmmm ok or he hit me but it was just once. I think to myself there isn’t a transit in the world that will make me love you more than I love me. Ok. But still I would like nights that you believe will last forever, that feeling when 2 people are first falling in love & you know it. You can feel it on the other person and you believe it. It has been so long since I loved someone and even longer since I loved the right someone. I have been blissfully unaware how closed I have been until just recently. I invited someone over I will call him “Scorpio moon”, we talked about life, astrology, music, Mazzy Starr oddly playing and for a minute I believe she was stuck on repeat, and I felt like I was outside myself watching time move on. I haven’t talked with or kissed a man since my plutonic love which now oddly feels like another lifetime ago. When telling the story to my coworker I said it was so weird I feel like a part of me has been frozen in time and Scorpio Moon set my clock forward. Your biological clock, she teased 😉
No like the clock on the show Once Upon a Time on ABC, all these people are trapped in time for the first season unaware of there previous lives. Karmic Ties and lost Loves Oh my! They know something is missing, but not sure what it is. One of the characters on the show is a child that demands an adult Bring back the happy endings.
I cant help but wonder where is my happy ending or atleast faux happy ending. Neptune square Venus in astrology is dubbed the “farytale aspect” Apparently the only farytales that exist for me are on tv because I never get the chance to dream. Reality is an ever looming prescence.

A solar return & solidifying preference for reading strangers

I prefer to read the charts of people I don’t know, when I know someone I can’t help but put my own thoughts & wishes upon them. This is also the reason I look to other astrologers to read my chart so I’m not guilty of seeing what I want to see instead of what is actually and factually there. I first realized this when I read the chart of my plutonic love see entry here:

A Dedication to a Plutonic Love

He was due to get married & I kept thinking this wedding is not going to happen. I didn’t see it in the solar return. There are certain indicators when looking for a year of marriage in solar return such as
1 Venus rising
2 Planets in the 7th (marriage) 9th (legal activities) 3rd (rules contracts)
3 Mars, Pluto, or Saturn angular
4 The Midheaven coming to the Ascendant indicates an event

These are some vague examples; I never predict anything without 3 placements AKA three confirmations
You can find extensive interpretation tools here:
http://www.docstoc.com/docs/20033787/Solar-Return-Book

I believed he would never marry her, when in fact the wedding, the event; the reception was placed on hold due to weather constraints. A natural disaster swooped in. An instructor would later say how appropriate Pluto rules hurricanes, tornadoes etc. Plutonic Love indeed. In any event I leaped to conclusions seeing what I wanted to see because I wanted him, had I not known him perhaps I would’ve seen the event not occurring or rather being postponed, instead of having bouts of delusions. Please god let him leave her at the altar. Yes I know I’m going to hell for but hey I would rather party with the sinners than cry with the saints!
Fast forward 2 years: my friend has been the victim of identity theft someone has committed crimes using his identification. I read for him early in the year & didn’t predict this. My friend is an upstanding citizen, a marvelous person that I certainly didn’t foresee being wrapped up in any troublesome legality. He travels often, for instance in this year alone he probably has taken 8 trips for leisure…. he has a loaded 3rd house-Moon Pluto, Jupiter & Saturn so travel is essential. This year however he had Saturn planet of hardship and restriction in the Solar Return 9th house I advised him to not schedule a trips abroad & that if he did he would experience some sort of issue. I was thinking detainment, delays or bad weather. The other day he called me & told me all about his stolen ID & the crimes etc he said I know it’s in my chart & I’m like no no no. He demanded I find it! I know it’s there, he said. He is an Aquarius ya know when they are right they are right. So I pull up the chart & see Saturn in the 9th house. The 9th house rules far off travel, higher learning & legalities! The 9th house is on the natal 3rd house, the 3rd house rules siblings, and general correspondence. While traveling to California his home state he received a letter stating his license had been suspended due to 3 DWI’s. He is now stuck in California sorting this out. To add further insight he has Neptune in the Solar Return 7th house, I know he is in a relationship so when I read for him I inquired if both of them were being honest with one another. Yes! Of course he assured me, but the 7th house doesn’t only rule partnerships, it rules open enemies. & lawsuits! Neptune rules alcohol and scandal. Damn so someone has stolen his id, blaming him for their 3 DWI’s he has found out this via a letter while he was traveling cross country. My mind is alive with insight mini landmines are going off. Why didn’t I see this before! Because I know him that is why, an astrological lesson learned.

Solar Return Saturn in the 9th

2013 Happy New Year…. a few weeks in advance

Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right- Aquarius Sun Oprah

I don’t profess to be Deepak Chopra the fact is I’m not relaxed, possess a disdain for yoga, and have lived off cigarettes & frozen dinners for a good portion of my life. I’m impulsive & hot-headed & will tell someone off in a New York City minute. I feel particularly stressed lately. Weighed Down by responsibilities. I had an epiphany last night that I can’t continue working, existing really under this immense pressure, internal pressure that I put myself under. I was thinking about happiness & how really it does come from within. Money really doesn’t buy happiness I realized that just recently. From designer handbags to a house to a new car monetary things can only offer temporary joy.

I sat around the other day thinking: there isn’t a single thing I need or want this Christmas. I have everything how weird! But am I happy? I wouldn’t say these things make me happy, contribute perhaps but define my happiness, absolutely not. Things do not make you happy and we certainly cannot rely on other people to make us happy because when they go, when they leave; when they die our happiness goes with them. Never rely on another being for your joy. Really joy does come from within. I never really got that until now. With the Sun in the 5th house I’m always waiting on someone else to fill me up, I’m the type of person that can be surrounded by a dozen people and still fee alone. That is because happiness is not an external force nor can it be based on external circumstances.

I’m going to take a journey with in for 2013.

My New Years Eve resolution encompasses several things but mostly to schedule an activity that brings me joy once a week. We as individuals need something to look forward to, we are so often busy doing things for others, working, a lot of you raising kids, you need to set aside a day, several hours where life doesn’t consist of anyone else’s desires but your own. For me this is booking a TV show, writing, eating out, and seeing a Broadway show. I have natal Sun in 5th house my happiness stems from creation.

Look to your natal house placement of the sun and make up your mind to feed it in 2013. Nourish yourself. Sun in the 4th house; prepare some lovely desserts, if you have Sun in the 3rd take a new class, Sun in the 11th house join a new association with like-minded individuals. Its time…
