You’ll be able to know “astrology” through the pop-culture categories of dime-store booklets or through reading your daily horoscope in the newspaper. They’re supposedly the descriptions of who you will be and what is going to happen for you today according to some mysterious elements at work inside sky and smaller more than the luck on the draw you had been handed over a day of the year you have been born. Usually the dime-store booklets are simplistic but accurate as far as they go. Daily horoscopes within the newspaper, though, resemble actual zodiac signs about up to Styrofoam resembles actual food.
I’m an astrologer. If I do say so myself, I’m a beneficial astrologer … who has for over thirty many years studied this interesting metaphysical subject, and when people say the daily horoscopes in the newspaper are meaningless and silly, I need to agree. But it’s also meaningless, silly, and short-sighted to judge the whole field of astrology itself as worthless in accordance with what even good, competent practitioners on the craft (and you will find plenty of us around!) agree are ridiculous distortions. Most daily horoscopes are not even an amusing cartoonish representation of what real astrology is all about.
It is feasible to write a decent daily horoscope. In fact, I write a single that reflects the varying emotional climate because it shifts and realigns itself — changing its focus sometimes quite a few times a day. I publish it over a front article of the Enchanted Spirit website; it’s named “The Lunar Light.” It’s accuracy sometimes astonishes even me, and yes, I consult it myself incredibly often as I go about my daily routine. But the info there’s just that … a thing or a couple of of knowledge for getting and hold in mind.
I also stay aware of what else is going on inside the sky the way I stay aware from the days of the week, the changing seasons, as well as the daily weather patterns. But, even I don’t run my life “by astrology in any way I’d call superstitious or grossly inconvenient … and neither should you. I also say it’s just excellent sense if it’s stormy outside to dress for your occasion. Give yourself some extra time to get exactly where you need to go. Plan for ones unexpected. Keep in mind how the roads are slick and you’ll want to drive with caution.
And when Mars is opposing Pluto inside the sky … because it is as I write this article, understand it is probably folks are feeling pushed, impatient, hassled, and on edge. Tempers may flare. They may consume foolish chances. They won’t react kindly to interference or delays. There’s lots of resentment and anger floating close to just under life’s surface — and it won’t take significantly to “set it off.” So … maybe a smaller additional patience can aid defuse a dilemma — or avoid it altogether. Possibly a little extra courtesy can support ease this bump inside the road for everyone. Maybe considering twice ahead of you act — or react — could add additional safety towards the daily hustle whose deceptive calm … or already ruffled edges … conceals explosive possibilities.
If you ask me, that attitude that can’t hurt. As an astrologer, I know that any square or opposition in between Mars and one more planet implies a time for caution … again, some thing to retain in mind. Stressed Mars energy (which is what an opposition or a square represents) is explosive, temperamental, and indicative of poor judgment — and there’s often something “spectacular” about what occurs at such times, as soon as elements go terribly, terribly wrong.
Mars was opposing Uranus the night The Station Nightclub fire in New Jersey became the 4th deadliest in U.S. history. Mars was opposing Uranus and Neptune when the Waco compound in the Branch Davidians was stormed … with the resulting fire and carnage. Mars was opposing the Moon and moving into an opposition with Jupiter on September 11, 2001 when the World Trade Center in New York City was demolished by terrorists. (Saturn was also opposing Pluto; the Sun was square to both of them; and Venus opposed Uranus. To an astrologer, it was a messy day inside the sky as well as a tragic 1 on the ground. )
Mars was moving out of an opposition with Jupiter and into an opposition with Pluto the night Nichole Brown Simpson was killed by “somebody.” Mars was square towards the Moon, Uranus and Jupiter the night Princess Diana was killed. And sure, most men and women on earth produced it through those people exact same nights without getting murdered or dying in a car accident. So were there unique factors why individuals a couple of women have been particularly “at risk” at that time. Yes.
The night Nicole Simpson died, Mars — already “in trouble” in the sky was conjunct her Natal Mercury (an indication of feasible arguments and decisions made in anger), opposing her Natal Neptune (an indication of self-sabotaging or self-destructive actions), and square to her Natal Uranus (an indication of hasty, ill-considered, impulsive actions.) Are these probably the most conditions under which to walk out of your house and confront a shadowy figure inside your driveway, regardless of whether you know … or think you know … who it is?
(The greatest theory I have read about what may possibly have happened that night suggests OJ, angry at his ex-wife’s appearance at their daughter’s recital with one more man, May possibly have gone to her house, not to kill her, but to slash her tires — expecting that his imminent trip out of town that night would give him an alibi for ones incident. That explains the timing of the attack — just before the limousine coming to eat him for the airport — and also the reason why he was at her property having a knife. But Nicole’s mother had forgotten her glasses at a restaurant that evening, and Nicole was watching for Ron Goldman to drop them by her home on his way household from work. Instead, as the theory goes, she saw “somebody” messing with her car, went out to confront whoever it was, and was killed after that “somebody” panicked at getting discovered.) This scenario definitely fits what her horoscope describes.
The night Princess Diana died, Mars, once again “under pressure” in the sky was square to Natal Mars in her chart (indicating actions “at cross-purposes” with each other). It was conjunct her Natal Neptune (indicating self-sacrificing actions and actions undertaken for emotional rather than logical reasons). It was square her Natal Uranus (again indicating hasty, ill-considered, impulsive actions.) It was square her Natal Jupiter (indicating excessive, “over the top” reactions.) Almost certainly not essentially the most conditions under which to have into a high-speed midnight chase in the paparazzi in the streets of Paris … to say nothing of using a drunk at the wheel.
