Gails Predictions at SATORI on Janurary 6th, 2006December 21 2005 Winter Solstice predictions for the winter and 2006
January 6th, 2006- Notes from Lecture given at The
Satori meeting in Fort Worth, Texas by Gail Carswell
Mundane Astrology is different than Natal Astrology. Most of my astrological study, knowledge and talent has been focused on assisting myself and others with understanding our inner workings and what current transits are asking of each of us to grow using our birth chart or road map we chose for this time around on Mother Earth. I started my quest in this field with my 7th grade Science Fair project at Castleberry here in Fort Worth. The year was 1965.
In Mundane astrology, there are several techniques to predict events for
the coming year. One technique says that if the Winter Solstice chart has a
fixed sign on the ascendant then this chart will be in effect for the total
of the coming year. We will look at this chart for the winter and please
keep in mind that this year we do have a fixed sign (Taurus) on the
ascendant. This chart and the aspects will likely have a bearing on the
whole of 2006.
This chart has the element of Earth predominant. Things are likely going to
be slow moving and all of us would be advised to check our plans and
carefully place one foot in front of the other and not get in a hurry and
miss steps that are essential to the best outcome.
The mode of the chart is predominantly fixed. This can give great ability
to stay the course in the face of any odds we are facing. This same energy
can bring stubbornness.
Before we go further I want to bring our attention to a couple of aspects.
The first one is the Moon trine Jupiter. This is called a guardian angel
aspect. There is another planetary configuration that is called a mystic
rectangle. Here we have two sets of planetary energies that are in
opposition but brought together by sextiles and trines. This configuration
can be used to find solutions to concerns that occur during this time
period. I have seen many clients with guardian angel aspects who use this
aspect wisely. Remember even our guardian angels can get weary if we abuse
the gift they bring..
The Sun in this chart is in the eighth house and conjunct Pluto. The Sun in
Mundane astrology can indicate our president. Pluto can indicate
assassinations and/ or great catastrophes. The eighth house can indicate
death and/ or accidents. There are no other aspects in this chart to the
Sun. I have not compared this chart to President G.W. Bush to confirm if
there are further indicators of danger..
The conjunction of the Sun with Pluto could also indicate that President
G.W. Bush will continue to feel he is above the law and has total power to
make laws and/ or policy with his own mind and desires. There can be an
obsession with power. There could even be some thoughts of using nuclear
The eighth house is the natural house of Scorpio and Pluto is the ruling
planet. Using the high side of this the president can get others to join in
and work for the good of the universe. On the negative side there can be
the desire to know what others are doing and "spying" can take over
I feel that everything is a mirror of each of us. The weather, our leaders,
there are signs about what is going on inside of us all around us. We each
would do well to have a look at how we are using our individual power. Are
we pushing to have our way and not taking the time to consider how what we
do in our lives will effect the universal good of all?.
This Sun conjunct Pluto can be a concern because the raw power of this
combination is frequently used with no thought to what is best for others.
However, the President and each of us have the choice to take this
planetary energy to a higher level. The best use of this energy is to
create committees and join with others to see projects moved forward to
assist all others we are sharing our time with here on Mother Earth..
The Sun and Pluto in the eighth house could be telling us that we will be
dealing with a continuation of storms. Some of these storms will come from
nature. Flooding, earthquakes, fire storms are all very likely..
Mercury in this chart is about as far away for the Sun as is possible. The
President as well as the rest of us could be making decisions again with
only the Sun and Pluto influence and not mentally take the time to think
through decisions. Many people could be making decisions based on
obsessive behavior. It will be important to consider your decisions and
choose the best time to have calm discussions with others..
Mercury is the focus point of a planetary configuration called a T-square.
The other two planets involved are Uranus and the Moon. Here again we are
seeing that everyone could be restless, stubborn, impulsive and even
fanatic. Slowing down mentally and taking time to feel our way through our
decisions while listening to our intuition will serve us best. If we choose
to make our decisions based only on our emotional needs of the moment we
will likely make some poor decisions..
Mercury is part of a Grand Trine configuration. This could lead many to
again think that they have the right to make decisions and not take the
time to feel our way through how these decisions will affect others..
There could be continuing concerns with our freedoms. Watch and take any
action you feel inclined to concerning the Patriot Act. Our reputation as a
Nation could be in question, especially how we treat women. There could be
more discussion about Roe v Wade. Much of this discussion will likely be
behind closed doors..
Covert listening and monitoring of our correspondence is continuing. This
will be on all levels. E-mail, phone, cell phone. The Law and Order of the
land is likely being discussed behind closed doors as well. If more
catastrophes occur the government is likely making plans to assist but also
on taking control of the areas. I personally hope they are making plans now
so the decisions can be discussed before hand. Decisions made on the fly
are again not going to be the best choice..
The Moon in this chart is in Virgo. This can indicate all of us wanting
what we want and wanting it just the way we want it. This can be a good
thing as long as we understand when it is time to compromise. The stock
market is likely going to be emotionally driven and experience wide
fluctuations during this period..
Our leadership could feel we do not need or even desire other countries
participation in World affairs. Some big social blunders are very likely.
This is for our nation as well as for each of us. Venus is un-aspected in
this chart so social graces could be lacking. I have not followed the
stories for how our leaders ultimately responded to other Nations offers
after recent disasters. This has been brought to your consciousness so ask
yourself how will you respond to offers of assistance. What shape are our
social graces in.
Venus turned retrograde on December 24 2005 and will go direct February 3
2006. This will not be in effect for the whole quarter but only for the
dates mentioned above. During this time period our personal relationships
are likely to go through some trials. There are likely more divorces being
filed. Some other possibilities are again our social skills are not at
their best. Blurting out something without thinking how our words might
affect others. Money is ruled by Venus so many of us are likely to feel
"poor" or that there is not enough. I do not mean to make light of the
poor. There are many people struggling with finances and this will likely
be a more difficult time..
Use caution on any purchases of art or jewelry, clothing or really
anything. There is a good likelihood you will not find them as beautiful or
useful as you had thought. The worst-case scenario could be that you have
been deceived and the art or jewelry is a fake. If you do buy antiques, art
or jewelry get certificates of authenticity and know the reputation of the
Friends or lovers from your past could contact you. This is a good time to
contact others from your past..
I feel that one of the best uses of this planetary energy is to take a long
look at how we feel about ourselves. Do we have our self worth connected in
an unhealthy way to the amount of money we earn or have in the bank. We
have recently seen how our material possessions can be gone quickly due to
flooding, hurricanes and fire storms. The chart for the time period until
the Spring Equinox indicates these types of events are likely.
Understanding our true value is inside our heart and is the most important
lesson. Loving ourselves and showing love to companions and environment is
the goal for this time period..
Our leaders as well as each of us are likely to feel more aggressive and
could be discontent. Mars is conjunct the ascendant. This can indicate a
sense of superiority and can go as far as aggressive superiority on the
negative side and can indicate enormous creative ability on the high side..
Mars is one of the planets in a configuration called a T-square. Mars is
opposite to Jupiter and the focal planet in this configuration is Saturn.
Understanding controlled expansion is important. These two planets can be
rash and make decisions that are made with passion and not well thought out
logic. Self control is not a strong point. Having Saturn as part of this
planetary configuration can be seen as a good thing. Saturn will encourage
our leaders and each of us to slow down and make appropriate plans before
we take action. If we choose to make rash choices Saturn is there to assist
us in learning some tough lessons..
Mars in Taurus can bring some frustration in not getting to move ahead as
fast as desired. The opposition to Jupiter will only add to the possibility
of frustration. There is a good likelihood of many people making poor
decisions and I feel that road rage will continue to be a major concern.
Knowing that there will be many people that are not conscious of the
planetary energies but are still expressing the energy could assist you in
avoiding combative experiences. Use caution on the roads..
This configuration indicates that there again could be difficulty in many
marriages and relationships. People can get into wanting what they want at
any and all costs. Greed and jealousy can be concerns and some could let
these emotions take over bringing explosive situations..
There is an indication that we can get some great intuitive insight into
the direction of our future goals. Working diligently to not buy into the
feelings of frustration and paying attention to not promising more than we
can deliver or over committing ourselves is important..
There are more indicators that the divorce rate will likely be higher than
other periods. Again, I want to reiterate that there is a guardian angel
aspect that could be helpful to anyone that wants to do the hard work that
There is indication that the leaders will really want to expand some war
efforts and deception could be used. This is an important time to join
together and visualize and pray for calm decisions and peaceful resolutions
to world events..
The Mystic rectangle is indicating that we do have access to resolutions
available to work through the difficulties. Keeping a calm head and slowing
down will allow the intuition to kick in and bring ideas forward to assist
working through some difficult times..
There are indications that our national reputation is not seen in a good light..
As I was looking at this part of the chart I thought about miners and the
indications of danger for this occupation. Jupiter in the 7th house
(business establishments) square Neptune (Miners) in the 10th house
(reputation of our nation) I took a break leaving my computer right after
this thought and that evening I turned on CNN to see that there was a
mining accident. With this chart I feel that this is a dangerous time
period for those in the mining field. Neptune also rules over gas, oil,
chemicals, the ocean, war ships, drugs to name a few. All those that are
working in any of these fields would be wise to use caution. Use caution
when you are filling up your car at the gasoline station and any other
circumstance you are using any of these substances..
After watching some further news on the mining company that are dealing
with the workers that are at risk right now, their safety record is poor.
The number of violations was increasing over the last two years. Again our
reputation as a nation will likely be seen as not caring about our workers
in these areas. The governing bodies over these industries would be well
advised to step up the on site checks and follow up on violations..
Watch for local gas drilling and be vigilant on contacting the local
officials and ask about the safety timing and let them know you have
concerns. I know people that work in this field and there are more risks
than most of us would want to imagine..
There is another T-square configuration that has Jupiter as the focal
planet. Saturn and Neptune are opposite and both of these planets are
square to Jupiter. This is a building aspect and those of us with charts
with Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius prominent, will feel this planetary energy
Watch for any planet moving through the missing fixed sign Taurus for this
T-square to become a grand fixed cross. While those of us with our natal
chart having more fixed energy are feeling this energy the most, all of us
are in the planetary energy mix. This aspect has been building for a while
and will continue to build well into 2006..
Our homes and the authority and control over our homes could feel nebulous
and uncertain. I feel that there will be many storms from many different
types of weather elements. Rain and flooding, mudslides, Earth quakes and
fire storms are all possible. (Check our specific Weather Prediction
article for Fort Worth) Again we are being shown that we can get into fear
and frustration that our control of our physical possessions is not what we
once thought and counted on always being there..
We are being encouraged to look at our philosophy in life. What has true
value and meaning. I feel there will be a good number of examples shown to
us of people reacting to the planetary energy poorly and using deception to
get what they want..
Looking at the weather more, there are indicators that we all would be well
advised to be prepared for emergencies. Be sensible and have plenty of
food, water, medical emergency supplies, solar ovens, hand crank radio etc..
Our agricultural concerns are likely going to have difficulty. There could
be difficulty with government subsidies or other regulations..
Our nation's goals as well as our private goals are undergoing some
adjustments. I feel that more and more people will understand the value of
having a good spiritual attitude and daily practice. There are many
indications of feeling restrictions in our life and having a good spiritual
attitude will help us overcome these feelings..
Spring Equinox March 20 2006
This chart is very different in that there is no planetary energy in the
element of Earth. There is more of the element of Fire than Water or
Earth. The element of Fire is very enthusiastic and spontaneous. This
energy can be used for good or can be used for selfish and overly forceful
The mode is more mutable and this can be very beneficial in moderating the
fiery nature of this chart. Mutable energy is more adaptable and
sympathetic. The low side of mutable energy can be used to be deceptive,
unpredictable and undependable.
We will look first at the placement of the Sun and the aspects. The Sun is
in the ninth house. The ninth house gives us indication about the judicial
system, religion, diplomats, the Supreme Court, our navy, foreign shipping,
interstate airplane traffic, progress and development. These areas of life
will be very important to our leaders and to each of us. Other areas are
publishing and advertising.
The Wright Amendment will be ruled on. I would think with the trine aspect
that this Amendment will be repealed and Love field will become busier. I
personally believe there are several smaller air fields that are
There is an element of deceit with the Sun conjunct the North Node. Will
this be the president and our leaders deceiving the public? This could be
the president being deceived by others around him. We would be advised to
look at where we could be deceiving ourselves.
If you are advertising during this time period be sure to proof and have
someone else check your advertising for errors or omissions. It is
important to be very truthful in your wording. There are indicators that
there is deception in many areas of life and you will want to pick your
wording carefully. Mercury is retrograde and in Pisces. Both of these
facts are not the best for clear communication. If you are having a book
published, please check the work more than usual and after the printing
check for printing errors.
There will be plenty of hard work during this time period. There are
indicators that planetary support will assist us. Like any chart, there are
contradictions. There are indicators that many of us will be concerned with
health and financial issues. Likely there will be reports of many more
people living below the poverty level than had been reported in the past.
The general health of the nation could be a concern. The general conditions
of our nation will be of hard work, restriction and somber feeling. We will
be questioning authority and the use and misuse of authority. There are
aspects that offer support to work our way through these feelings.
It will be more important than ever to get out and get physical. There are
indicators that we could feel restriction of our physical movement and have
the "deer in the headlight" syndrome. One thought is Yoga. This is a
wonderful modality to move your body and bring more peace to your mind.
Having a friend or a group that you exercise with will bring further
meaning to your session.
The Sun, Moon and Ascendant are in good aspect to one another. This aspect
is called a Grand Trine. This will bring some ease to the hard work and
somber feelings. This same energy can make us feel that it will all be
taken care of by others or the Universe and we can get lazy on making the
most of the energy available by taking personal action.
The emotions of the country are going to be running high and there will be
a lot of passion. Our children's health, education and welfare will be the
focus of many discussions. The population will be asking our leaders some
hard questions about our country's continuing foreign investment and how
this is affecting our investment in our own country.
Motion pictures and theaters will take on a more spiritual and
inspirational leaning. We already know that Da Vinci Code and Celestine
Prophesy are being made and many more movies will be highlighting spiritual
and metaphysical subjects.
The stock market will again be running on emotions with very wide swings.
There are indicators that more high profile companies questionable
accounting practices will be revealed. Pension funds look like they will
continue to be a concern. Many people could find that they have worked for
most of their life believing that they would be entitled to a guaranteed
pension check of a certain amount of money and find that the amount will be
much less or that the pension fund is non-existent. What we once thought
was our foundation in life will have to be reevaluated. Our enthusiasm,
exuberance and joviality are likely subdued. This is a time again to find
our own internal balance and not look to the outside world to understand
our true value.
There are concerns about our thoughts not being clear and we could question
our beliefs. There is the possibility for more leaks and scandal
surrounding the White House and other political figures.
We have talked about Uranus in the Sign of Pisces here at Satori and at
Owl's Clover. You can read this information on our web site. A short note
here is that more and more people will be experiencing "knowing" or
"seeing" through the veil and having spiritual awakenings.
Looking at this chart for March 20th through June 21st, pay close attention
to your intuition. Plan more time for meditation to allow messages, visions
and deeper spiritual understanding to come to you.
The beliefs of the whole country can be shifting. It seems that tough times
are the normal way of getting us humans to make shifts. This chart shows
the possibility of more concerns with water--flooding, high tides, mud
slides, earthquakes, storms of many different types. There will be a
further Weather Forecast available on our web site for the Fort Worth area.
Besides the weather there will likely be more deaths from accidents,
suicides and there is a good possibility of some type of epidemic.
Emphysema could be dramatically on the increase.
There could be a breakthrough in the area of understanding electromagnetism
and the use of magnets. Uses of nitrogen can make advancements. Science in
general can make some great strides forward. Some old beliefs in the
scientific field can be shattered.
There are indicators that our international affairs could be confusing and
again deceit could be occurring. There are signs of great risk at
misunderstandings. If we can use the energy available on the highest level
we can bring a spiritual aspect into all of our partnerships.
More money will be spent on the war effort. It could be very difficult to
track how and where the money is being spent.
Spiritual tours and vacations could do well. Healing on a deep level from
these experiences is possible.
Anyone offering professional services and bringing their spiritual
enlightenment as part of their service, will be on the leading edge.
We will all feel we want to move forward with our goals. It will be
important to get out of the talking stage and getting the plan written down
on paper so we do not miss steps in the planning and organizing of these
goals. Attaining our goals could cost more than we had thought and could
require more of our time away from home life. Additional time will also be
needed for any goals.
It is very important that you exercise self control. The aspects here are
going to have most all of us wanting to break free and move forward without
hesitation. This could be a costly choice.
I believe that the latest mining tragedy could bring many mine closings due
to safety. The housing market will likely be softer than the recent past.
There is a Lunar Eclipse on the 14th of March at 24 degrees Virgo 15
minutes and a Solar Eclipse on the 29th at 8 degrees of Aries 35 minutes.
We will offer a class at Owl's Clover to assist understanding these eclipse
energies for the world, our country and you individually.
Summer Solstice June 21 2006
The chart for this period is again mostly Fire. Rash, quick decisions are
likely. There is a great opportunity for all of us to give very little
thought to our actions and the motto, "just do anything even if it is
wrong" could rule. We will have to be very conscious to bring logic,
objectivity and be unprejudiced in our life. The abundance of the element
of Fire can have us being overly forceful and bossy.
The mode in this chart is fixed energy. Fixed energy is determined,
stable, good ability to focus and concentrate. The negative side of this
fixed energy is stubbornness and egotistical.
The Sun is in the 11th house. This house in a mundane chart tells us about
the nation's income, national treasury, future plans, international friends
and countries. This house also can tell us information about Congress, the
House of Representatives and the will of the people. The only aspect to the
sun is an opposition. This aspect brings an awareness and can be a tension
of opposites. The key is to find a compromise between the two energies. Be
gentle in all of your social dealings.
This can be a strike first and make sure you win. This is another
indication that all of us must use logic and compassion in our
lives. Pluto is not exactly known for compassion or anything low key.
Pluto is more about destruction and then rebuilding, making it better.
There will likely be attempts to further restrict abortion rights. There
will likely be more revelations about members of Congress and the House of
Representatives taking illegal money and gifts. Money that is owed to the
USA by foreign countries could be defaulted on or we will have to
renegotiate the repayment.
The communal harmony could be a concern. Perhaps this is about continued
discussion on getting the different states reimbursed for the expenses due
to the evacuees from Katrina.
There could be a real concern about the debt that is on credit cards and
the announcement that the government is mandating that the minimum payment
be raised. There could be many people that just will not be able to meet
this new amount due monthly.
This time period could see air disasters and concerns with transportation.
There could be an air disaster with the plane going down over water. The
aspects could also be showing something about air travel and water in
general. This same planetary energy could play out in concerns with
computers. Perhaps a virus or worm that could take out large numbers of
The president and many in the country could be feeling at a loss in their
emotions. There could be a feeling that there is a lack of emotional
support. The president's popularity rating continues to be on the low side
and he could feel many of his friends have deserted him.
Many of us could have similar feelings. Solitude and perhaps meditation,
journaling and talking to a trusted friend could help. There will likely be
a record number of people seeking help for depression and antidepressant
drugs could be the short term answer. Homeopathy can offer a gentler
option. Please have an astrological consultation and see how these aspects
are contacting your chart.
Finding ways to communicate with our closest friends and family will assist
in better emotional stability in this quarter of the year. Looking at this
chart, this could be the last thing we will want to do.
President George W. Bush could have concerns with accidents or there is the
possibility of violence. We would have to do a chart comparison to see how
these planetary energies are contacting his birth chart. He and many of us
will be feeling like we are driving with the brakes on.
The position of Mars in the first house and in the sign of Leo is very good
but there are many aspects that can indicate frustration, violent feelings
and that others are keeping us from moving forward. Sudden unexpected
events can make a change of direction necessary.
The country could be faced with mines being closed and some type of
limitation in our natural resources. Farms are facing some difficulty. Our
freedoms are likely being challenged and communal harmony is being tested.
We could see some educational institutions close. Housing is feeling
sluggish and the evacuees from New Orleans and other disasters could be
doing well if they even have a tent.
The fourth house can indicate natural calamities. Jupiter is retrograde and
with the aspects to this planet I feel that there is a good likelihood of
more natural calamities from June 21 through Sept 23 2006. There will be a
separate article dealing with the weather for the Fort Worth area on our
This house can also give us indicators of the political and general
stability of the nation. There will continue to be turmoil and hard work
for most every one and especially for the Democratic Party.
This chart has 80% more squares than typical. Squares can be stumbling
blocks and we can choose to feel like we are boxed in. We can equally
choose to use this energy as building blocks. As with any building this
will take our intention of staing optimistic and lots of hard work.
Using Astrodynes, Saturn had the most Power and the most Discord in this
chart. Saturn planetary energy demands we have a plan, follow the rules and
do the hard work. Rewards from Saturn will always come but they are slow
in coming and are in direct relation to the amount of work we do. Venus has
the most Harmony, but there is very little harmony in this chart. Venus is
about your social life. Be sure that your plans have some social time included.
The first house has the most Power. We are advised to take personal
responsibility and develop our own plans. Making our health régime a
priority is a must. Health is on many levels, be sure to include all of
them. The most Discord is also the first house so we can be our own worst
enemies. The 11th house has the most Harmony. Our long term goals are
important to understand. Spending time socially with friends that truly
support us is one way to bring more harmony into our life.
The sign Leo has the most Power and the most Discord. Find ways to be
creative, have fun, and watch out for needing to be "center stage". This is
the balance we are working toward. Pisces is the sign with the most
Harmony. Our spiritual life and assisting others in the world will help
bring more harmony into our own life.
Mundane Astrology is different than Natal Astrology. Most of my astrological study, knowledge and talent has been focused on assisting myself and others with understanding our inner workings and what current transits are asking of each of us to grow using our birth chart or road map we chose for this time around on Mother Earth. I started my quest in this field with my 7th grade Science Fair project at Castleberry here in Fort Worth. The year was 1965.
I love working with Medical/Health astrology, looking to see what vitamins, supplements we might require and how we tend to deal with our emotions. Career/Vocational astrology and Locational What we experience in different locations. Prenatal Eclipse What we come to teach and what we come to learn, and there are several other areas, even Black Holes, Quasars, Pulsars and let's don't forget Asteroids.
Now I have shared with you some of the ways Astrology can be consulted to help us have a better understanding in many different areas of our lifeLet's get on with Mundane Astrology. This branch of Astrology looks at world events. Mundane come from the Latin word mundus, which translates, to world. Just like personal astrology there are many areas to consider. In Mundane Astrology we could look at Financial, Business, HealthPlagues, bio-terrorism, WeatherEarthquakes, floods, Agriculture, Political and what the group thinking will be focused on.
Two of the oldest methods used when looking at Mundane Astrology are the Cardinal Ingress Charts and Eclipse Charts. The Cardinal Ingress Charts are when the Sun enters the Cardinal signs Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn.
- December 21 2002 Winter Solstice/ Capricorn Ingress chart
We will look at the Capricorn Ingress chart first. This chart is for December 21 2002 and will be in effect until the spring equinox, March 20th 2003.
Some Astrologers look at the rising sign and with it being Fixed this chart is in effect for the whole year. Most of the planetary energy is of a Fixed nature. The mass consciousness is not in a free flowing frame of mind. It could be difficult to think out side the box.
We have Jupiter retrograde. Jupiter energy brings us optimism, with the apparent backward movement this energy feeling backwards we aren't feeling very optimistic. This is the general outlook of the people of our country as well as the whole world. Jupiter in aspect with Mercury, we are seeing and feeling communications full of stress. Labor strikes, health concerns and our nations security just feels shaky and will continue with this feeling.
Saturn the planet that helps us with feelings of structure but also feelings of restriction is also retrograde. We feel that our income and future plans are not going in a forward motion. Saturn is in hard aspect to the Sun. This will continue to bring the Stock Market and other speculative ventures feeling a lock step movement at best.
Uranus is the planet of the sudden insight and sometimes pulls the rug out from under our feet in the house of War and Open Enemies. There will be continued sudden and unexpected events in our foreign affairs.
- January 3rd Mercury goes retrograde at 28 Capricorn (direct on January 23rd).
There could be misunderstandings and miscommunications particularly at the work place. Any mechanical equipment could cause concern. Governments and employers will be going back over old ground looking at how to cut cost and be more effective. Use caution when signing contracts especially any concerning land or real estate. This is a good time to re-organize. Orderliness in your life will be a focus. Skin, teeth, or bone health issues may come up. If depression is a concern this is a good time to consider alternative options to assist with this. Your natal astrology chart will show if this is a life long concern and when the transiting planetary energy will bring up concerns. There will likely be more talk about polio.
- February 22nd Saturn goes direct at 22 Gemini.
Promotions that have been delayed will come through now. If you have felt thwarted on any forward movement this will ease. Gemini's, Capricorns and Aquarius will especially be feeling this. Watch for erratic drivers that have felt like their personal lives had the breaks on and now want to experience forward movement behind the wheel.
- March 10th Uranus goes into Pisces. This will be a major shift for all of humanity. The keyword for Uranus in Pisces is visionary.
Uranus was discovered in 1781 during the period of the French and American Revolution. This was also the time of the Industrial Revolution. This would indicate that Uranus is connected with modern technology as well as political unrest. Our group consciousness will be shifting. This will not happen all at once. Uranus has been in Aquarius since 1995. The Internet really took off during this time period. This was the Information Age. Uranus was last in Pisces from 1919 to 1928. Looking at the events during this time period will give us ideas about this coming time period, 2003-2011.
Uranus will go into Pisces on March 10th and only go to 2 degrees of Pisces and the planet goes retrograde on June 7th the retrograde motion will take the planet back to the sign of Aquarius until December the 31st. Uranus will be in late degrees of Aquarius or early degrees of Pisces until the Spring of 2004. Where Aquarius has objectivity, Pisces will have our feelings running strong. The victim/victimizer theme will come into play. Utopian hopes that are founded on illusory ideals will prevail.
Some events from the previous Uranus in Pisces are:
The 18th Amendment banning alcohol in the United States was passed. The effect of this was the "Mob" and gangsters that "took over" and the formation of the "Untouchables".
The American Communist Part was formed in 1919. This went on to see this country running on it's feeling of the fear of the "Red Menace". Thousands of people were arrested without any real cause.
In 1920 the 19th Amendment was passed giving women the right to vote.
There was a prevalence of fear of "something out there".
These themes will likely play out in new ways. We will see large numbers of people arrested for questioning about terrorism.
I feel that more people will become more psychically and intuitively aware. The intuitive intellect will awaken. People will be consulting psychics more. Intuition will be honored more. People can become aware of past lives. People that do not have a community that supports these new "flashes of insight" will likely be the ones most fearful. Neptune in Aquarius, 1999 through 2012 will accent this. More women will be in Power. This could be in politics as well as all other areas. There will be more and bigger Earthquakes. Designer drugs will increase as well as discoveries of new drug therapy for diseases. Many people will search for escapes through drugs, alcohol while many others will take a higher spiritual route. Water uses and abuses will become an even bigger issue. New species will be discovered in our bodies of water. Our shipping harbors will need better security.
- March 20th Spring Equinox/ Aries Ingress chart.
Our thinking will be shifting and we will want to get on with things. Our nations emotions will be more accessible and healing our collective wounds will be a big focus. More insider trading will be brought to light. The stock market will be very volatile. There will be more concerns around insurance. Our courts and government will need to address the problems concerning insurance of all types. Churches will be facing a restructuring and feel their attendance smaller while people look for their true spiritual path. Intuition will soar and will likely scare some that are programmed that this is unnatural. Those working in the psych field will be busy. The emotional stability of the US is a concern. Some will turn to Medical doctor for drugs others will go to street drugs. Watch for new designer drugs to surface. The veils will be thinner and past life memories will come for many. Focus on your Spiritual path.
- March 23rd Pluto goes retrograde at 19 Sagittarius. (Direct on August 28th)
Pluto is relentless and often ruthless. Pluto's only aim is to transform that which needs to be transformed. We have watched Pluto go through and show up some areas that our government needs to transform and also the organized religions as two examples. This retrograde period will continue with these themes. In our personal lives we will want to look at the house that Pluto is transiting and the aspects it is making for insight on what the transiting planetary energy is assisting us in transforming. The TRUTH is out there and Pluto in Sagittarius will help get the Truth known.
- April 4th Jupiter goes direct at 8 Leo.
Jupiter went retrograde on December 4th. This in combination with other things produced a slow retail holiday season and fewer holiday parties. Jupiter is the most benefic of all the planets. This is our guardian angel. With Jupiter going direct along with other aspects we will see the beginning of an attitude shift in our feelings about our financial situation. The Stock Market could have an up swing, however it will be short lived.
- April 26th Mercury goes retrograde at 19 Taurus (direct on May 20th)
This Mercury retrograde could find snafus with ATM machines or other banking. Check all financial statements carefully for errors. Use caution buying artwork, carpet, and coins. If you are expecting a raise it will not likely happen during this time. Loan applications will likely be lost or rejected. Do your background work and send in applications after the 20th. Throat ailment, thyroid concerns, eustachian tubes, or esophagus could be an area of concern.
- May 15th Neptune goes retrograde in Aquarius (direct on October 22nd)
Neptune rules over oil as well as many other things. This time period could see more concerns about oil. Watch out for lies, deceit and fraud. We could put on "rose colored glasses" and find ourselves swindled. This is a good time to schedule some time to watch your favorite old movie or read your favorite old book. Plan time to finish up creative projects. Spend some time in introspection and if there are any psychological beliefs that you want to get rid of this is a great time to identify them.
- May 15th Lunar Eclipse at 24 degrees Scorpio ***Please see separate Eclipse article coming later.
- May 20th Mercury goes direct at 11 Taurus.
Things will move forward.
- May 31st Solar Eclipse at 9 Gemini ***Please see separate Eclipse article coming later.
- June 4th Saturn goes into the sign of Cancer.
Saturn will be in Cancer until July 17th 2005. This will be a heavy time for President Bush. He will be forced to answers some questions about his actions over the last 7 years. Saturn is the taskmaster. President Bush will be reaping what he has sown. The rest of us will be looking at our homes and our own inner workings more seriously. Watch for feelings of isolation or seeing obstacles as permanent. Learn how to face any painful emotions. All of us will feel the need for support, but it could be hard to come. Now that you are aware of the coldness that this planetary energy could bring you can find ways to antidote the coldness. The emotional reserve will be useful to handle difficulties with fewer emotions.
- June 7th Uranus goes retrograde at 2 Pisces (direct on November 8th)
This is what we talked about March 10. This shift will take some years but there is a BIG shift in the making.
- June 21 Summer Solstice/ Cancer Ingress chart
There will be concerns over grounding. A daily meditation on grounding would serve us well. This will be a very serious time period. We have the Sun conjunct Saturn with a hard aspect to the Moon. Health will be a major concern many could be struggling with depression. There could be many sudden and unexpected acts of aggression. Children could be a target. Communal harmony will require work. Riots and concerns around labor relations are two examples of possibilities. This chart shows water as an area that should be watched carefully. This could be floods or other natural calamities. The water concerns in California, Nevada, and Colorado over water usage will likely be to a breaking point. The government will struggle with communicating with the public.
- July 29th Mars goes retrograde at 10 Pisces (direct on September 27th)
Mars goes retrograde approximately every two years for 80 days. Watch out for accidents, breaking things, feeling restless, fatigue, concerns with inflammations, burns, and cuts among other manifestations. Our energy level could be low. Look at how you are using your Mars (aggressive-assertive energy) and find a healthy balance. Our government could use this time period to step up covert activity. Do not have elective surgery during this time period. Mars rules surgery and surgeons.
During this time period Saturn will be closest to the Earth in many years. Last time this occurred was 1974. We were dealing with Watergate and Nixon resigning. Before that was in 1944. We were in World War 2 and within 8 months President Franklen D Roosevelt died.
Mars will also be closer to the Earth and some could mistake it for a UFO.
- August 28th Pluto goes direct at 17 Sagittarius.
Pluto the great transformer will bring more truths out of the closet for us to deal with in our personal lives and watch for more news stories about our "leaders" concerning their morals and integrity.
- August 28th Mercury goes retrograde at 26 Virgo (direct September 20th)
This will be a time of miscommunication and lost medical tests. This time period would be best used to look at our diet and life style to promote and protect our health. Watch for food poisoning. Our daily routine will likely not go smooth. Relax and allow time for delays. Military communications will be spotlighted and any flaws will be shown. Clothing bought during this time will not serve you well. Check any prescriptions for errors. Concerns about the nations health will be in the news even more than we are seeing now.
- September 20th Mercury goes direct at 12 Virgo.
Keep up the focus on a healthy lifestyle.
- September 23rd. Fall Equinox/ Libra Ingress Chart
Uranus and Mars are still traveling together and this could continue with sudden aggressive events during the next three-month period. This could also indicate more intuitive flashes. Police will have a busy time period. Anyone working in law enforcement fields should use extra caution. Many will feel a great amount of courage and will possibly do some foolish things. Falling passionately in love or expressing your love in a passionate way could be a good use of this energy. Our daily routines will not go as usual. Have all files on your computer backed up. There could be disruptions in our transportation and with communications.
- September 27 Mars goes direct at 0 Pisces.
Military action will likely move forward and increase. The public will likely be kept uninformed. The Navy will be particularly active. People will pull together for their spiritual searching.
- October 22nd Neptune goes direct at 10 Aquarius.
- October 26th Saturn goes retrograde at 13 Cancer (for remainder of 2003)
This will have a close contact with President Bushes natal chart and with the chart of the country. We could feel locked down in many ways with not many choices.
- November 8th Lunar Eclipse at 16 degree Taurus. ***Please see separate Eclipse article coming later.
- November 23rd Solar Eclipse at 1 degree Sagittarius. ***Please see separate Eclipse article coming later.
- December 18th Mercury retrograde at 12 Capricorn (goes direct Jan 4 2004).
There could be misunderstandings and miscommunications particularly at the work place. Any mechanical equipment could cause concern. Governments, employers will be going back over old ground. Use caution when signing contracts especially any concerning land or real estate. This is a good time to re-organize. Orderliness in your life will be a focus. Skin, teeth, or bone heath issues may come up. If depression is a concern this is a good time to consider healthy options to assist. Your natal astrology chart will show if this is a life long concern and when the planetary energy will bring up concerns. There will likely be more talk about polio. This will be THE Christmas of returned merchandise.
