My own interpretations of the unfolding drama of the planets, stars, asteroids, newbies, fixed stars, archetypal astrology, archeo-astronomy, psychology, meditations, information, what this means for you. I am a professional Astrologer since 1990.
RIP JOAN of the acerbic witted tongue. I started writing this on Sept 4. I knew Joan was not going to make it.
But lots of comedians are trading jokes in heaven these days
Be careful what you talk about. Joan Rivers, the 81 year old comedian was apparently cracking jokes about dying a day before she experienced cardiac arrest on August 28 undergoing a routine surgery in a doctor’s office in Manhattan. Since then she was in a medically induced coma and has been brought out of it and is apparently on life support but out of the ICU.
I love comedy and have been a fan of Joan’s especially when she was young and appeared on the Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson. She was even given the job as guest host in 1983. Most people know of her biting wit and she does fashion crime reviews now and has a very successful line of jewellery. She has had numerous plastic surgeries, she jokes about it all.
Joan Rivers birth and death chart
JOAN was a GEMINI- a fast thinking, verbally obsessed whirlwind of energy. Gemini is like Peter Pan and Joan needed to look and feel young. Her infamous plastic surgeries. Communicating, selling, dual natured, quite charming. I dont think she cared what she said to people. She was like an eternal child in some ways.
Where did her infamous acid tongued humor come from? Sagittarius is the sign of humor and of course Joan had her MOON- her instincts, feelings, moods, her early childhood, her mother in Sagittarius exactly opposite her Gemini sun. Her Mother and father were tied together but opposing.
Both SUN and MOON are SQUARING MARS and conjunct JUPITER at the powerful 15th degrees of VIRGO sign of the Critic in the house of work.
She was a very fast- Jupiter- ruling the Moon-processed feelings quickly, analytical, acid tongued Martial communicator. Very hard worker and a total perfectionists all that Virgo energy and angry- MARS conjunct Jupiter. It was her own inadequacies and others taste which she made fun of. Neptune,planet of imagination, addictions in Virgo it is health and the physical body, is also closely connected in Virgo to Jupiter and Mars and Joan’s SOUTH NODE is at one degree Virgo indicating in her past lives she was also very hard working, intellectual, analytical, perhaps a real salt of the earth peasant.
with her North Node in PISCES in the 12th house in square to CHIRON, the wounded healer at zero degrees Gemini. Joan was actually a spiritual healer in disguise. With Chiron in her 2nd house of resources her tool for healing was her lightning fast tongue, her mind, her quick jibing wit which was both wound and her healing balm. Joan’s highest spiritual goal was to learn compassion, self- acceptance, charity. I m sure she often felt very alone.
JOAN SAID “Humor doesn’t come out of the good times, it comes out of the anger, pain and sorrow. Always the anger.”
Very telling of this aspect.
MERCURY at the last degree- “critical” of GEMINI- she was the COMMUNICATOR par excellence. Mercury rules Gemini. Its place in the natural 3rd house.
JOAN had LILITH the first woman, the first Feminist conjunct her Gemini Sun and opposite the Moon. She had some issues with her own mother and childhood and probable was always rebellious and ornery. Joan pushed people’s buttons and you either loved Joan or hated her.
Aries Ascendant Joan was fearless. She was an Amazon warrioress of a comedian. She fearlessly said whatever was on her fertile mind. Mars in Virgo rules her Aries Ascendant.
Saturn is Retrograde in Aquarius in the 11th house. An important man in communications would be like a manager and mentor to her- Johnny Carson. Johnny’s I.C. the roots of his chart are at 12 degrees Aquarius and his natal Saturn Mercury are at 10 and 14 degrees Scorpio in a perfect square to Joan’s Saturn indicating they had a karmic relationship. Joan was like his daughter.
Saturn is quincunx Jupiter Mars in Virgo. I really don’t know anything about her relationship with her father. I know that her husband Edgar committed suicide and the difficult aspect of Saturn to Mars Jupiter would indicate that.
Joan had Lilith opposite her independent gypsy like Sagittarius Moon which is also the highest elevated planet in her chart. Her emotions were always on display. relationships ended suddenly for Joan. She wasnt afraid to be reviled. she was very strong in herself, Uranus in Aries in her 1st house makes a trine to her Moon with Pluto square Uranus. A very self motivated woman. Very strong. She did it her way.
At her death:
Neptune opposite Neptune. This is a very spiritual signature. It was time for Joan to leave the planet.
CHIRON in PISCES opposite her natal Jupiter Mars in Virgo- a quick spiritual death.
Saturn and Mars transiting her 8th house of death. Saturn has been squaring Joan’s sun for the last few months, turning Direct at 16 degrees Scorpio.
Sun is conjunct her Neptune. The light to heaven
Jupiter in Leo is opposite Saturn and trining her Moon.
transmitting Venus on her South Node. she leaves with love.
We will always have records of your finest wit Joan. You will be missed by many.
PLease share widely

just to let you know I am at a a writing retreat and will be in transit for a few days.
BEAUTIFUL when enhances and with music but these solar flares are dangerous. They could destroy the U.S. electrical grid, they do disrupt satellite and radar communications. They definitely affect human and animal behaviour.
If things weren’t wacky enough with the planets. The Sun is head honcho and holds the most gravitational weight in our neighborhood.
I feel dizzy when these solar flares are active. Do you feel any different?
WORK WITH THE ENERGY
Do deep belly breathing and ground your energy from the bottom of your spine. Imagine growing a tail and sending it down deep, deep into the earth. This will help stay grounded.
VERY SPACEY SPIRITUAL HEALING FULL MOON Sept 8/ 6:38 pm PDT/ @ 10:38 pm EDT/ Sept 9 1:38 am GMT
NOT KEVIN from House of CARDS- which I havent watched yet.
FULL MOON Features a Very watery GRAND TRINE on Sept 8/9
O I FEEL STEFON from SNL channelling herenow:
“THIS FULL MOON’S GOT EVERYTHING”
“Saturn in Scorpio, that means SEX, conjuncting with ASTEROID VESTA,no puns ntended
to MOON dancing cheek to cheek with CHIRON PISCES which also Trines
ASTEROID GODDESS JUNO in a big bubbly bath in the sign of CANCER . “
LISTEN TO THE GODDESSES as the GREAT DIVINE FEMININE energy descends, rebirths, re-awakens. JUNO is specifically FEMININE GENIUS, her 8 armed symbol, like Hindu ancient goddess DURGA is of many means.
VESTA and her Highest Honor to serve her as Sacred priestess in the ancient temples. they tend the sacred TANTRIC sexual fires of healing.
This is a huge sexual healing time. Millions of women have been raped, abused, tortured. They need to heal this pain and women must take back their power and hold boundaries, against such wide and deep fear and hatred of all women.
VESTA focuses intellect, and devotion of being of service, relates to health.
VENUS IN VIRGO OPPOSES NEPTUNE IN PISCES- super romantic but also deceiving
VERY SPIRITUAL< empathy is out of the park > need boundaries.
QUE the fog machines, smoke and mirrors, don’t believe anything you hear, read or sense. You wont be able to tell what is real and what is your projections. We all project what we deny and want to see or idealize onto others. Like what HOLLYWOOD does. The TIFF begins in Toronto on September 5.
Swept away, old dogma, vs transformation of what is inevitable. Letting go, the ending of cycles. PISCES is the end of the entire experience. Having compassion for ALL life, ONENESS. The ISIS menace, disparaging the sacred Goddesses name in the media. Executing beheading, torturing. We will all feel acute sensitivity to others feelings, empathy, pain. A time for listening,caring for others, cuddling as divine healing.
Difficulty with boundaries,martyrs. Feeling woozy,try to stay feeling Groovy. Be careful about any medications or drugs medicinal or not.
VERY CREATIVE and family oriented, with all that feminine energy. Pray together, let your family know how much they mean to you.

Speaking of Robert Plant
I was feeling very woozy all day Aug 29 – and you? I realized that Sun and Neptune both at 6 degrees Virgo/Pisces were exactly in 90 degree Square angles to my Sagittarius Sun at 6 degrees.
So If you too were born November 29 or May 29 you are feeling that woozy dreamy spiritual square.
Great for meditating with. hard for focusing.
MOON ENTERS SCORPIO AUG 30 in the wee hours

The XULTAN TAROT by Peter Balin 1976

GRAB IT NOW! my secret special Sedona Autumn equinox readings LIMITED SPECIAL http://www.taratarot.com
Aug 28 Venus, the Goddess of LOVE BEAUTY Relationships exactly conjuncts her Dark Sister, LILITH at 19 + degrees of LEO.
Time to LOVE the DARK GODDESS of sacred sex in your heart and take her out of bondage.
Lilith was The ORIGINAL WOMAN- created equally to Adam from the red earth. From ancient Mesopotamian myths. She has many legends and names. She was almost written out of history. She is popularly portrayed on TV in True Blood.
As First WOMAN, Goddess Divine, on fourth of G*d’s emanation-SHE was /is the primordial Feminine- NATURE HERSELF. She was never a demoness. she was demonized.
Instinctive, sexual, untamable, self-contained,, all-powerful, birth giver, death bringer. She was the Moon embodied, the powers of the Unconscious. She was depicted as BEAUTIFUL, half animal with birds or goats legs and wings. She was identified with owls.
Lilith refused to be sexually dominated by Adam and fled Paradise to live by the Red Sea. God sent three angels to try to convince her to return but she refused because Adam didn’t respect her as an equal.
Genesis is a symbolic, psychological, part historical, absolute brain washing campaign to take control of and repress the Original Nature pagan Goddess worship which was obvious and common sense.
Eve was a man-made creation, created from 2nd hand parts of Adam. Lilith came back as the Goddesses’ animal, the snake in the Tree in PARADISE to tell EVE to think for herself. And EVE did. For Eve’s daring to defy the newly minted patriarchal religion, they blamed all women to be born in sin. They meant to destroy all the beauty of the feminine, her intuition, for having autonomy, intelligence, personal strength, and self-sufficiency.
This was the original split created by MAN himself when he declared himself to be above nature, the animals and woman. The fall from Paradise was mans own creation! Totally ego bullshit.
Lilith’s horrible smear campaign has waged against her for 5,000 years. The dark face of the Goddess, still worshipped as KALI today in India was made out to be hideously ugly, feared, a vampire, succubus, child killer.
Lilith attributes were as TANTRIC sacred sexual Priestess. Every woman worked as one of her priestesses for a year before being allowed to marry. These priestesses or Houri- the word whore comes from this-originally meant Hours- and the Hebrew dance the hora. The Goddess priestesses had respect, property, power, freedom.
In the THOTH Tarot the card of STRENGTH #11 which is LEO shows the WHORE OF BABYLON riding a lion.
The Thoth Tarot Strength card is called LUST. It shows the naked Whore of Babylon/Lilith riding the Lion/beast/heart. Mentioned in the Book of Revelations. What is the Beast? The Catholic church, the patriarchy itself. Scapegoating women for what men themselves cannot control? She is taming the beast of Lust and guiding it. Leo is the heart. It is also lust for life in general.
LOVE THE DARK GODDESS
The natural DIVINE FEMININE is where true love, connection and spiritual oneness source from. To be whole WE NEED TO HONOR LILITH, women’s sacred sexuality and allow women to be free from patriarchal lies. Lilith governs Scorpio. MARS and Saturn are also conjunct in Scorpio – desire to transform all sexuality.
The great and HOLY goddesses was aka ISIS, Egypt’s primal Goddess.
That horrid acronym NOW being used by the media shames the original Great Goddess ISIS. Makes me feel sick. ISIS are Muslim, criminals using a pretext of religion for their insane acts.
Women’s sexuality is all-powerful. Men are weaker, they know it. It is naturally created that way. Once men honored the Goddess as sexual and sacred and both revelled and thrived. We all are born of women. Sex is where we all begin. We are sacred Holy creatures. Say yes to your own sacredness.
LOVE YOUR LUST in sacred Tantric sex. Yes you can easily profane sex through pornography. By not being honest or fully present and in your heart for a partner. Using others for your own selfish animal instincts-that is negative lust.
HOW WILL YOU LEARN TO LOVE honor and revere your inner LILITH?

I’m in a Virgo New Moon mode. Did a lot of sorting, cleaning and de-cluttering. Felt much more focused. It’s good.
Paid homage to serious Saturn in Scorpio conjunct Mars in ceremony with my husband. It felt good. We have been doing New and Full Moon rituals for 18 years together now.
Mars is HOT. Pure masculine libido, testosterone, drive, daring, spontaneous. Saturn is COLD. Ancient wisdom, seniority, plodding, depression, serious, father, death. Two polarities. Marshall McLuhan Toronto’s media philosophy guru used to talk about mediums being Hot or cold. But they can work together. Saturn slows down Mars hot headedness. Mars brings passion and new life to seniors or depression.
Three Faces of Man by Judy Chicago 1985
“Youth is wasted on the young. ” George Bernard Shaw said. But energy always be accessed, manifested, held molded and intended for powerful, long-term, practical goals, through patience and persistence. Like the embodiment of the “superior Man” of the I Ching. We can create a middle polarity balance point.
I feel that Mars has taken Saturn hostage temporarily. Mars is the dispositor being Scorpio’s ruling planet.
The warrior and the tax man together. Life force, sex and old age and death. The young action hero, like Luke Sky walker and Obi Wan Kenobi in Star Wars and the wise old sage. The young punk and the cops. Pure energy and a wall of lead. There are many ways to think of these two planets.
As Saturn literally represents your father and if your dad has passed on like mine has, use this three days of the Dark Moon to connect with him more easily. I had a very powerful dream last night and my Dad was very present and spoke to me very clearly.
You better use this energy well, Mars can conflag Saturn’s controlling energies. You could also be feeling more like Saturn’s dragging your heals,got your under his thumb.
The planets don’t make us do anything. It’s all in how you use it. So use these powerfully intense planetary energies positively. You can use my intention. This is how Magic works. Put all your Mars desire into it.
“I invite this life-giving martial energy to energize my body, and my long-term goals,to completely transform my life into my Soul’s highest manifestation.” Ho. So mote it be.
Try it on for size and let me know how it feels. Feel free to invent your own variation.
