A Behenian Fixed Star called Antares & Astro-Update

I’ve decided there are more to the game than previously thought, for that, this post will become an article =]


tumblr_m5qtrqoz9K1ry4sypo1_500.jpg

Recently (August 23rd, 2016)  I wrote on Facebook page:

“♂+ ♄ = If you are a strategic person full of knowledge and good sense, these days are yours! Mars conjunct Saturn in Sagittarius with fixed star Antares.”

Actually, can you see the astro-perfection? Mars when conjunction to Saturn boosts us with self-structure and straight up discipline, it rules the majority of ‘military’ vibration. Mercury just conjunct Jupiter in Virgo and will soon do it again as Mercury turns retrograde and Jupiter advances into tropical Libra. This is also an opportunity (Jupiter) to expand one’s best ideas and following the conjunction of Mars-Saturn to Antares, this sounds the ground for action. I wrote about it where I called it the “babel effect”:

“Mercury begins to conjunct Jupiter in Virgo. Mercury rules Virgo and Jupiter hates being in Virgo, it feels too unfastidious. Yet, glory yourself from this aspect, Jupiter-Mercury aspect is always good to think-big and outside the box. Many many great ideas come from this aspect. I had many ideas that shall be in the website soon, at least one of them. Enjoy this time to reflect upon what you wish to expand in your life, and in Virgo that shall be reflected upon the minimum details of life. Did you know Mercury rules over small pets, such as cats? My little ones are so messy today! I just got home after a week of a quick travel to the coast and found the cats very loud, and still are, so cute, so cute. Jupiter is noisy and activate the babel effect in a chart among with Uranus. Where is transiting Uranus ♅ ? Uranus is at 24°degrees Aries my people, do you realize we are about only 7° degrees away from the cusp of Taurus? Jupiter ♃ is at 24° degrees Virgo, forming an exact inconjunction or quincunx (150°) to Uranus in Aries. There you go, a babel effect. Where are Mercury, Jupiter and Uranus in your chart at this exactly momento in your life? Investigate now.”

About the Mars-Saturn conjunction I also wrote on the Facebook page and at the last Full Moon which was in Aquarius (August 24th, 2016):

“Although Mars and Saturn have nothing to do with the lunation, both planets are in August 24th in exact conjunction in Sagittarius at 9°53′ degrees, which will be the first quarter of the Moon. By December 4th 2016 Mars in Aquarius will then sextile Saturn in Sagittarius at 18° degrees. Mars-Saturn aspects are never easy to handle, although sextile can soften and trine make it seems effortless. Sue Tompkins for example, believes all the aspects among Mars and Saturn can sometimes generally take us nearly to the breaking-point once the combination gravitates people towards “situations where their capacity for strength, endurance and stamina will be tested and stretched…” (Aspects in Astrology, 2002). The transit at its best activates our capacity to deal with seriousness in life, people are strongly capable of dealing with the worst conditions or scenarios, events and issues related to government or any other form of authority over another.”

Natally I own a Sun/Mars trine Saturn and Mercury exact square Saturn, thus I am not surprised by this effect of Mars-Saturn contact. Owning such aspect makes me prepare myself better than others that lack the aspect, like millions others like me. But with Antares, there are many things new to me.

  • The mysterious Lady in Red or hero Antar/Antarah?

There are at least 7 thousand visible stars by naked eyes splashed by all the celestial sphere, and millions more by an expansive telescope. Astronomically, the fixed star Antares is located at the heart of constellation Scorpius, yet it is in tropical sign of Sagittarius by astrological perspective. Giant Antares happens to be one of the brightest in our skies ranked as the 15th one in  the position because of its 1.0 magnitude, yet this star also happens to occupy its gaseous body near the ecliptic, being considered one the four brightest “suns” near the path of the Sun, the others 3 are Aldebaran, Spica, e Regulus. Curiously, Antares was romantically associated as one of the four Royal Stars in the sky of Persia around 3000 BC. The star is also known since early ages as one of the four key stars in the heavens, also called archangel stars: Michael (Aldebaran) watcher of the East. Gabriel (Fomalhaut) watcher of the South. Raphael (Regulus) Watcher of the North. Oriel (Antares) Watcher of the West. It wouldn’t had been too late for ancients to correlate the stars to specific events and situations, once they were/are so obvious in the sky, having its appearance astrologically (magical works, mark of events etc.) and astronomically (navigation, point of reference etc.) as permanent points of interest.

Mars, the planet of war is Aries’ rulership and was always seen that way by our ancestors, the same for Ares being the god of war. The ancient perception was categorical and logical by the visual effect the stars emitted when compared, and for that, the name Antares is believed to be focused on the resemblance of the same brightness and reddish color planet Mars emits, therefore being pictured as the rival of Mars, an Anti-Ares star yet still having its same attributes or even more dangerous then Mars or completely opposite – beneficial once also attributed to Jupiter as said above. An astronomical curiosity is the fact little is known and talked about but there are actually 2 Antares stars in that region of the Scorpius constellation once we are pointing out to a binary system of stars, it is usually called Antares B, a greenish color makes contrast to Antares A, but its brightness (magnitude) is so low near the A that B is invisible by naked eye, yet B is more luminous than our Sun, the life-giver. Antares B is about 2.9 arc-seconds, or 550 AU apart from Antares A. So whenever you are searching in the skies for Antares, you will be in reality looking at 2 big celestial and gaseous bodies, and not just one big yellowish ball. The light Antares emits is about 10,000 times the luminosity of the Sun, having characteristics enough to be a future supernova.

  • Astrological Antares – A military Star

“A Mars nature, in which the powers of Mercury and Jupiter and Saturn are also added. Antares makes people tough, belligerent and pugnacious. This is an important star for military personnel and is said to convey mental alertness, strategic ability and courage and to make dare-devils, especially if tied up with the MC, Ascendant, Sun or Jupiter. If associated with Mars, courage is said to become foolhardiness, leading to increased dangers. Natives with this particular configuration have to be prepared at all times for sudden incidents, unforeseen events and potential accidents. According to tradition, Antares is of violent character and is credited with being significant for a violent death, either in battle or by process of law. On the other hand, danger may come about by fire, weapons or machinery. Antares is also said to be unfortunate for the eyes, if in conjunction with the Ascendant, Moon or Sun and this has proven to be the case by later researchers. [Fixed Stars and Their Interpretation, Elsbeth Ebertin, 1928, p.70-71.]”

antaresFor astrological purposes, Antares in its geocentric celestial longitude is now positioned at 9° degrees and 46 minutes of Sagittarius (Agrippa1531 corScorpii.png at 9°46′ tropical Sagittarius), but apparently it can vary from material sources. In the 1900’s Antares was at 8°22′ degrees. This fact alone tells that fixed stars are not actually fixed but always slowly moving, not enough though to be witnessed in a lifetime, thus the term “fixed stars” is only a way of saying how slow or the stationary display they seem to appear relative to Earth. Annually around December 2 the Sun passes 5° degrees of Antares, for that reason Antares is said to be less than 5° degrees of the ecliptic and can be hidden by the Moon (as it did in July 31st of 2009) and rarely by other planets. Although ruthless, violent and dangerous in nature, astrological fixed star Antares has no direct impact in someone’s life direction if not conjunction by the closest orb as possible to the Ascendant or Midheaven, not even conjunction to personal planets can influence that much on the life’s path. However, when in severe contact to personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars and even social Jupiter and Saturn), it can drastically change its nature, overcoming the ability of the other planet to fully express its condition accordingly to its own’ energy. Having this in mind, stay away from the evil mind that drags you down to the hell. This is not to encourage though, blind spots. The Mars-Saturn conjunction is already a hard to knock it down combination, it is prevailing, persisting and can be extremely annoying to many people. Curiously, huge star ball Antares is said to be characterized by the nature of Mars and Jupiter as once classified by Ptolemy. Supermassive Antares is part of the 15 Behenian Fixed Star in our skies (in the article ahead I explore more of it). The majority of these stars are bigger than the Sun itself. Actually if you place the star Antares in the place of the Sun it would reach its outer parts between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. Surely, the lady in red is seductive in may forms, it needs to appear!

The deal is simple. Mars with Antares promotes success in battle as well as can indicate a violent death, assassination and the down fall for the one involved, yet, it foresees a great strategic person full of courage to act in the name of Antares which can cause lots of disaster along the way, banishing demons have physical consequences. Moreover, Mars-Antares is associated to success in war. It is like having double Mars attached to the chart altogether, and the Jupiter-association is highly viewed by astrologers as the factor of “lucky” in war as well as success by well strategic plans. If contact with Jupiter, there could be a great fortune, career success and other joys of life in expanded manners, or in its downfall – it brings instantaneous false hope, hypocrisy and huge fraud.

Now, what about the other planets in astrology and sensitive points? How can we relate that? In her book entitled “Fixed Stars and Constellations in Astrology, 1923” – author Vivian E. Robson explores the world of the fixed stars in detail format. Here are her hints about Antares conjunct each of this points or planets in the chart:

If Rising (conjunct 1st house): Riches and honor, violence, sickness, benefits seldom last. [Robson*, p.137.]

If culminating (conjunct 10tht house): Honor, preferment and good fortune. [Robson*, p.137.]

With Fortuna or its dispositor: poverty. [Robson*, p.137.]

With Sun: Pretended religion, insincere, honor and riches ending in disgrace and ruin, military preferment, danger of treachery, violence committed or suffered, fevers and sickness, injuries to the right eye, violent death. If rising or culminating, great honor through violence attended by difficulties and casualties. If with Mars also, pestilential disease. [Robson*, p.137.]

With Moon: Popular, broad-minded, interested in philosophy, science and metaphysics, liable to change religious opinions, influential friends, favorable for business and domestic matters, active in local affairs, great power, honor and wealth but benefits may not prove lasting, danger of violence, sickness, drowning or assassination. If in 1st or 10th houses, honor and preferment but many dangers and calamities. Liable to blindness or eye injuries especially if at the same time Mars or Saturn be with Regulus. If Saturn be with Aldebaran, danger of a violent death probably by hanging; but if Mars be with Aldebaran death by a stab, blow or fall especially if in angles. If a malefic be with Aldebaran in the 4th, 7th, 11th or 12th houses, death by a sudden sword-thrust, stab or fall (operations can be substituted for stabs nowadays). [Robson*, p.137.]

With Mercury: Suspicious, wrongfully accuses friends, unpopular, uses ecclesiastic influence in business, money obtained slowly and with much difficulty, danger of sickness to the native and his family, and death of a relative at home or away. [Robson*, p.138.]

With Venus: Insincere, dishonest, energetic and able but selfish. [Robson*, p.138.]

With Mars: Detrimental habits powerfully affecting the life, quarrels with friends and relatives, fairly favorable for gain. If at the same time the Moon is with Aldebaran, danger of death by sword or hanging. [Robson*, p.138.]

With Jupiter: Great religious zeal real or pretended, ecclesiastical preferment, tendency to hypocrisy, benefits through relatives. [Robson*, p.138.]

With Saturn: Materialistic, dishonest through circumstances created by environment, religious hypocrisy, many disappointments, loss through quarrels and legal affairs, trouble through enemies, many failures, hampered by relatives, unfavorable for domestic matters, much sickness to and sorrow from children. If at the same time the Moon is with Aldebaran, danger of death by sword or hanging. [Robson*, p.138.]

With Uranus: Abnormal and extreme ideas, hypocritical, lies and exaggerates, extremely socialistic, incites to riot, lawlessness and anarchism and in danger of imprisonment on this account, occasional poverty, disharmony with relatives, more than one marriage, unfavorable for children, violent death. [Robson*, p.138.]

With Neptune: Shrewd, cunning, unbalanced and mentally unsound, secretive but apparently candid, dishonest, tendency to theft, economical, untruthful, strange religious ideas, evil environment, gain through hard work, sudden and unexpected death brought about by treachery or through enemies who will escape retribution. [Robson*, p.138.]

As concerned above, saffron-colored Antares in astrology has only potency when in strong contact with the chart according to certain prior considerations. First of all, fixed stars should never be treated like a planet in any astrological method, for astrological purposes, fixed stars ‘cast no rays’, therefore the conjunction (0° degree) aspect shall be only considered among all the others aspects.

At the website astrology.king author Jamie Partridge writes about known people with Antares prominent on their charts: “Antares was conjunction Ascendant in the birth charts of Ghandi, who died by assassination; general Schleicher, murdered by Hitler; Helen Keller. A conjunction with the MC has been recorded with boxer Ten Hoff and Bormann, minister under Hitler. A conjunction with the Sun can be found in the charts of British Prime Minister Churchill, Field-Marshall Kesserling and the former Reichsarschall Goering. Antares was conjunction the Moon of Copernicus, and bound up with the lunar Node and Moon of the philosopher Nietzch, who at age 45, became an imbecile. The Austrian Kulturphilisoph, Rudolf Kassner was bornwhen the fixed star was conjunction Mars. because he contracted infantile paralysis, he had to use crutches all his life.” – (Fixed Stars and Their Interpretation, Elsbeth Ebertin, 1928, p.70-71.)

Astrology can be easily feared by this point, that’s why professional astrologers are here to help students of the art and science to progress fearless. By such intense interpretation from Ebertin over said by Jamie is terrific in essence. You read those sentences and you actually get to be scared by the effect of such tragic correspondence. Reading about Gandhi does bring a comfort to the idea Antares can also be spiritual in nature, but the assassination followed can give people a chill. A brighter side of Antares by itself and only can be interpreted as a constituted association to the 16th manzil which stands for Arabic Moon Mansion or Al Kalb (the Heart), which is said to be one of the fortunate stations, but this is something out of my jurisdiction. This is a serious study that demands detached quality of the mind.

  • Astrological Fixed Stars and the Behenian World of 15 Stars

In astrology, the Fixed Stars (also called that way to distinguish them from planets) prove to be a collection of source that ultimately brings a deeper understanding of astrology in its various methods of application such as astro-meteorology, mundane astrology, elective, time and Natal. “The first catalog of Fixed Stars was compiled by Timocharis and Aristyll about 250 years BC in Greece”; Ebertin-Hoffmann (Fixed Stars and Their interpretation), therefrom we easily deduce its application in astrology and occultism in general comes from really ancient times, Hoffman also claims in his book (ibid) the name of the Fixed Stars has its origin in It was Babylonian.

“The strength and efficacy of the Fixed Stars is to be considered from their magnitude, their splendours, their natures or properties, their nearness to the Ecliptic, their place in the World, their multitude, their first oriental appearance, the purity of their place, the similitude or agreement of the body or rays of a Planet with them and their circle of position.” — The Seven Segments of Cardan [ed. William Lilly, 1675]

However, most of the ancient students and practitioners of the art used fixed stars preferably and mainly from Horary astrology to magical preparations of itens such as metal rings and talismans, also the making of rituals for casting spells of whatever the nature of intention – all by the occultists of those times, and being an astrologer was considered one. But among all those seven thousand visible stars, the occultists had a time correlating some of the mainly ones accordingly to their logic, to specific happenings in humanoid’s affairs, and that happened to be chosen 15 of them all, which are known as the Behenian stars. The cool part is that each one of them may represente a planet, two to more, like if each one was a result of conjunctions of planets accordingly. They also have a glyph for each other, some are complex while others are very simple but never alike the glyphs of the Zodiac’s signs and planets.

The Behenian fixed stars are the selection of the ‘finest’ of all the visible stars in the sky, fifteen stars chosen to represent powers of nature unknown to humans but which can be detectable by astrological methods and investigations, they were so luminous, bright and conspicuous to the point of needing a special treatment from people sensitive to reality in other forms than the majority. The 15 stars are: Algol, the Pleiades, Aldebaran, Capella, Sirius, Procyon, Regulus, Alkaid, Gienah, Spica, Arcturus, Alphecca, Antares, Vega, and Deneb Algedi. Astronomers, magicians, occultists, and surely astrologers did used the behenian stars as a meaningful source of interest since early ages of humankind. As for magicians and the occultists, those specific stars were especially useful for magical applications in variety of rituals, artifacts and charms, believing the fixed stars were correlated to certain gemstones and planets, these people used to put heavy weight and concerned when exploring the world of astrology in the physical world, attracting or repulsing accordingly to each star’s symbolism and nature by one’s own will. Thus, the name these stars were derived from Arabic bahman word which means “root”. Perhaps, whenever we want to reach to the ‘root’ of a situation, occultists of those amazing times knew the power of the behenian stars had in order to reach out for the event, creating eventually a chain of attraction when utilizing them as symbolic representation of power in the making of spells, talismans and other kinds of magical interpretation given by older magicians.

When a planet was within six degrees of an associated star, this influence was thought to be particularly strong.

“QUOTING”

tumblr_mzb9brf97q1tne2txo1_500

Note I: As I wrote on Facebook page: “Mercury begins to conjunct Jupiter in Virgo. Mercury rules Virgo and Jupiter hates being in Virgo, it feels too unfastidious. Yet, glory yourself from this aspect, Jupiter-Mercury aspect is always good to think-big and outside the box. Many many great ideas come from this aspect. I had many ideas that shall be in the website soon, at least one of them. Enjoy this time to reflect upon what you wish to expand in your life, and in Virgo that shall be reflected upon the minimum details of life. Did you know Mercury rules over small pets, such as cats? My little ones are so messy today! I just got home after a week of a quick travel to the coast and found the cats very loud, and still are, so cute, so cute. Jupiter is noisy and activate the babel effect in a chart among with Uranus. Where is transiting Uranus ♅ ? Uranus is at 24°degrees Aries my people, do you realize we are about only 7° degrees away from the cusp of Taurus? Jupiter ♃ is at 24° degrees Virgo, forming an exact inconjunction or quincunx (150°) to Uranus in Aries. There you go, a babel effect. Where are Mercury, Jupiter and Uranus in your chart at this exactly momento in your life? Investigate now.” – Indeed, the configuration is part of the Full Moon as the Moon activates a Yod with Uranus both pointing to Jupiter in Virgo. I will explore more of that, and the babel effect as well.

Note II: Although Mars and Saturn have nothing to do with the lunation, both planets are in August 24th in exact conjunction in Sagittarius at 9°53′ degrees, which will be the first quarter of the Moon. By December 4th 2016 Mars in Aquarius will then sextile Saturn in Sagittarius at 18° degrees. Mars-Saturn aspects are never easy to handle, although sextile can soften and trine make it seems effortless. Sue Tompkins for example, believes all the aspects among Mars and Saturn can sometimes generally take us nearly to the breaking-point once the combination gravitates people towards “situations where their capacity for strength, endurance and stamina will be tested and stretched…” (Aspects in Astrology, 2002). The transit at its best activates our capacity to deal with seriousness in life, people are strongly capable of deal with the worst conditions or scenarios, events and issues related to government or any other form of authority over another.

Note III: Saturn is no longer Retrograde, although we are in its shadow period. When Saturn is Rx, we feel our obligations in life is doubled and indeed they are, only to show you how to feel serene after such lessons as it comes back to direct motion, where we can feel soften by all the pressured left by the heavy marks of Saturn’s feet in the sand and no longer have to work the double to achieve such reality.

I must say this: it does feels like an eclipse my dear ones, a slight one as said in the last New Moon’s article, there shall be an actual urge to feel the content with an extraordinary vision, bringing forward things that should have been still vague in the unconsciousness. But that what eclipses do, they bring forward events that you think it should happen only in years to come, events we thought it could have never ever happened thus far. In all Full Moons of Aquarius, we learn our emotions can be detached from us in order to improve mental faculties and make progress in the house it falls, a time to understand the true purpose of advancement in life. The Sun in Leo is now consciously telling you what is going on, but the with the Moon, we never know… until the Full Moon comes! The transiting Sun in Leo exposes the need to shine, to be applauded at and to give love generously, while the Moon in opposite sign of Aquarius is revealing where you need to applaud to and at the same time to receive love back, to belong to a circle. Naturally, we learn in astrology that opposition indeed isolates, but the major purpose is the integration of the polarity instead of focusing on the separating parts, and that is the beautiful knowledge that the studying provides not only in technique, but in practice, in real life.

The New Moon in Leo 15 days ago Mars had just entered Sagittarius after a long stay in disturbing but focused Scorpio. In Scorpio I felt my personal and career strategies were much more persevering and I prefer that way, even when I have Venus in mutable sign of Gemini. But we have to navigate with the cosmos with the tools available. Mars now in Sagittarius operates in our will accordingly to our beliefs and what we think is correct and wrong respectively, it boosts us with too much blind confidence, although that could be pretty useful in small kinds of events. The New Moon 15 days ago also initiated a well structured cycle to your new seeds, have you noticed that? The New Moon was in a comfortable trine to Saturn. Moreover, to understand this lunation understand the now Mars-Saturn aspect and the long go Saturn-Neptune aspect which are strong forces behinds this period.

When the Full Moon comes in Aquarius, we get to be aware of our future-self, becoming curious enough to discern between the now and then, the place where you belong now and the place where you will or could be in the future. The Full Moon in Aquarius has 2 rulers by traditional astrology which are Saturn and the Sun, too powerful and contradictory forces from the cosmos operating as a singular ruler of the skies. Saturn is not involved. Uranus is the modern ruler of Aquarius, thus transiting Uranus in Aries is trine by the Full Moon in Aquarius and sextile by the Sun in Leo. Surprising endings an unpredictable unfolding of events are hugely expected. However, here we are able to ’cause’ something that others may feel impacted by it. The Yod (isoceles triangle) activated by the transiting Moon pointing to Jupiter, indicates a focal point in the chart, telling us something isn’t accordingly to what we want, and that is usually indicated by the third planet involved, which in this case is Jupiter. Look at this planet in your chart, it needs you to conduct the energy rightly. This configuration by itself brings suspicious scenes and produces unusual situations. Definitely this lunation feels like Aquarian in all forms.

At this ending cycle, we are able to change ideas quicker as they come, we are able to make progress with certain endings now, disclosures and announcements. Such events will deliberately leverage advancements in life. The Moon trine to Uranus already informs us there will be sudden break ups or sudden connection of whatever kind and as for the aspect ‘trine’ it tells us right away this will be for the good of the individual. Emotional enlightening is also highly possible as well as feeling electrifying, more friendly than usual and even more socially aware. The darker side is that people will use others to get their ends meet and many will turn to be a rebel without a certain cause.

  • ADDITIONAL

Seeing closer the chart, independently of the lunation’s mainly aspects to it, there are others factor going on behind the wheel, which I think is prudent to briefly discuss about them.

The T-square formed by Jupiter is no longer with us. However, Venus is now activating in its place! the minor octave of Jupiter’s.

THE T-SQUARE – It is clear to astrologers by the geometry formed by planets in the skies, the zodiacal aspect known as the “T-square” is particular in this new beginning. Here we are dealing with squares, which are hard aspects in astrology, not as much as opposition though, but it has its stressful conditions attached, and we are also dealing with oppositions, which mean this will be a very challenging lunation. It will deal about beliefs, religion, idealism, irrationality and human’s unconscious is lightly more sensitive. Since Venus is activating the T-square, many women may rise to the power of a nation during the whole cycle. Whatever is started out today, may bring serious development and will be on the people’s mind for a very long time. Here, we are motivated by an accumulation of personal self-interests, which can make us communicate and pass on the wrong information. Prejudice, feminism, machismo, racism, women in power, religion and beliefs will be major thematic the next 28 days or so, again! A T-square is the aspect more dynamic than the opposition itself, because it actually involves one opposition and 2 squares from the apex which in this case is Saturn Rx, the opposition then lies between Venus in Virgo and Neptune in Pisces. The recent New and Full Moons also had this configuration which is expected within the short window of time. A hard stimulation coming from the skies, it forces us to look for alternatives, for challenging that don’t exist but will if you act, and this is especially because the configuration urges us to foster ambition, and transiting Saturn will tell exactly where (the house it is transiting my dear, in your own chart). Neptune transit in the chart shows you where you are putting a beautiful scene, glamorizing… Jupiter transit in the chart shows you where your higher vision is being influenced, the house it occupies will tell you where exactly, and between these two planets, we are about to experience witchcraft, the square to Saturn though reveals an urgency to get matters done and resolved. Remember that the lunation will be totally in tune with this configuration itself, thus suggesting us where the real focus of attention should be at.

  • The Saturn/Neptune square – The combination by itself between the two planets is the major player in astrology for 2016. Saturn will be direct again on August 13th 2016 but before it will square Neptune on June 18th at 12° degrees [ALREADY DID], then it will square Neptune again on September 11th at 10° degrees either Neptune in Pisces and Saturn in Sagittarius. However, be ready for a restorative yet rousing Saturn trine Uranus by the end of 2016.
  • Recently, Jupiter exactly opposed Neptune in Pisces and squared Saturn in Sagittarius and if you turn on the TV for an instant on the news, things are getting rougher with ISIS taking over, conflicts kept in constant motion to promote violence on the Middle East. ISIS live map, shows an expansion of territory since the last Full Moon in Sagittarius, which still increases their control [watch here by yourself].

Qualities and Elements

  • 18% Cardinal
  • 18%Fixed
  • 64% Mutable
  • 36% Fire
  • 45% Earth
  • 9% Air
  • 9% Water

The chart shows a preponderance of Mutable quality, yet Cardinal and Fixed qualities are in equal but lower in percentage, we are willing to cooperate with the flow, becoming more flexible and able to adapt to changes. The medium percentage of fixed and cardinal signs, are still enough for us to ground ourselves into the physical reality and act cautiously but assertive.

The Full Moon’s chart shows a complete lack of Air and Water signs, while the majority of the planets are transiting in fire, earth signs. The elements in astrology are the essence of all the energies at the game, the lack of element Air compromises our intellect, interpretation of reality, jeopardizing our arguments and the capacity to rightly analyze events, people and ourselves. The lack of of element Water compromises our emotional responses and awareness. We won’t be able to feel it ‘deep’ but above the skin literally. And guess this energy is good enough for us to walk through rough waters. The fact by itself assures the lack a precise rational perspective in oneself and the world, we can also lack empathy for others, but we are willing to overcome that with courage and will, persistence and practicality. A wise and sufficient instruction, would be finding in practical forms in real life the element or elements the lunation most lacks, which in this case, are the elements of Air and Water. The chart tells planet Earth is already balanced with other elements by planetary astrological alignments, therefore, equivalence must be afforded through thinking, reflecting and using logic to close chapters as well as trying to reflect better before action.

SECONDLY, SEE WHERE THE LUNATION EXACTLY FALLS IN YOUR OWN ASTROLOGICAL CHART, WHAT HOUSE?

thehouses-title

Today we are about to celebrate it with a very friendly but individualistic unconscious behavior, for that, the sky announcing to humans and planet Earth: a Full Moon in Aquarius – The most eccentric and unpredictable of all the Full Moons by any astrological means. The houses the axis Leo-Aquarius govern are the succedent 5th and 11th houses respectively. In the session “Study Astrology” – “Houses” here at the website, I wrote about each house:

  • 5th house – Leo wants to affirm the unique expression of being, in this house we learn that creativity allows us to achieve our higher sense of self, and it becomes clear we are special somehow and unique, here the order is to create from the source, to feel the joy of being alive and full of life, Leo wants the world to know their presence and…
  • 11th house – Aquarius then enters laboring the idea that we need awakening from the terrible truth of death, and insure you won’t be alone, there are friends, groups to establish common likes and goals, learned that you need goals while in the 10th house of sober Capricorn. Here we learn we are no different from the other of the same, and that we are citizenship of the world. We are able to create groups so society can interact with, and from that we are able to change society as it is, being unique in expression.
The 5th house is where humans experience their ego manifested in many avenues, such entertaining activities are felt individually and may bring instantaneous pleasure, this is the house of the Sun and Leo – here we want to shine by our own essence and not of others. In contrast, the 11th house is where humans experience their individuality within a certain group of people of the same mind, interests and ideals, which will provide the native with an incredible perception of the self as an unique individual while belonging to a part of society where it can be identified the group as a whole. The serene thought of ‘belonging’ in terms of social acceptance and adequacy within certain principles in a group can bring a sense of unity, wholeness, unanimity and singularity. The axis formed by Leo-Aquarius houses, is understood as the axis of ego, and from this line of conception, the houses represents the experiences where our ego is torn apart only to reconstruct in a generous and humble manner. The second succedent points are a reminder that we must follow our hearts as well as accepting the hearts of others that share the same umbrella of interests than you, that is, these houses are where we need to satisfy our own needs as well as meeting something greater than ourselves, from personal to collective bond. Here, we are dealing with fire (5th) and air (11th) houses, that means, the 5th house of Leo has an extraordinary courage to keep up being what it is supposed to as a singular individual, while the 11th house of Aquarius gives us the mental experience of being that singular being integrated in the whole, someone different and unique but of the same. Saturn the celestial taskmaster is the co-ruler of the 11th house among with its modern governor Uranus, therefore there are 2 qualities attributed to this house which can be easily interpreted: everything new (Uranus) gets old (Saturn). But everything must be first new to this house, to then be old in the 10th house of Capricorn also ruled by Saturn, but only Saturn. Aquarius likes what is recent, fresh and new, even when a ‘vintage’ touch may be evident in the character. In this house we experience strange events, situations, people and weird transits. Outer planets transiting this house activates our friends, our social networks, our influence in groups, events occurring to our identity where we are no longer a professional based on status (10th house), but someone belonging to a brotherhood, a sisterhood and what one does to a greater cause than themselves, where a human becomes unselfish enough in order to fulfill humanity’s utopic dreams. While in the 5th house we experience our greater individuality following one’s heart and only, the 11th house is where we experience our uniqueness following a group’s ideas, goals or some kind of belief system that has root on the intellect. Everything that happens in the 11th house are strongly in tune with one’s association to groups, networks and friendships, the use of technology and how one approach to people as a friend or someone without ill intentions.

The Astrology of Jean Piaget

 

tumblr_md3tsejdoa1rwemzgo1_500New Moon in Leo Child

New Moon in Leo children are exceptional, they are as shine as the reflection of the golden rays of the sun in a glossy white marble, provoking others with their generosity that something seems too good to be true, but that’s their nature, undeniable! These natives are full of self-expression, they have no shame of being who they are, and usually want to cause with their self-image. New Moon Leo natives are known for their true sense of faithfulness to the people they love, also something to be proud of when in the life of these creatures. The Leo sign has a fixed nature and fire element, therefore we see a fire that is nowhere to go but to burn eternally in only one place, indicating  the latent urge to dramatically increase such fire in order to reach the borders of life. The philosophy I just created serves as an illustration to the understanding of how the Sun and Leo urge to be absolute.

Leo is the 5th sign in the Zodiac thus it occupies the 5th position in the astrological wheel. Also known as The house of the Sun – once the luminary is Leo’s rulership. The Sun represents our ever burning fire, the legit child inside of us all, that creative burst that can only come from our most innocence-self, no corrupted neither unvirtuous energy is is experienced with the Sun, however when planets transit such house where our ego is placed at, for example, malefic planets, they can alter the expression in which one experiences the events related to the house. But at its best, this is the house of fun, romantic meetings, casual dates, children, leisure time activities, all those things in which we spend time having a blast and all the entertaining world we take grand pleasure with. Whatever planets in the 5th house, the native’s urge will be about showing off the best of the planet’s operation and rarely the adverse part of it. The individual wishes as a consequence, to the planet in question to behave like the Sun, shiny and pretty even when impossible, the faith one can keep up with the best of the planet’s energy in this house is encouraging and outstanding.

  • Who was Jean Piaget?

Graduated in Biology, soon he became interested in researching the development of knowledge in humans. Jean William Fritz Piaget (born in Neuchâtel, Swiss; 9 August 1896 – 16 September 1980) was a renowned Swiss psychologist and philosopher known for his pioneering work in the field of children’s intelligence, being considered one of the most important thinkers of the twentieth century. He advocated an interdisciplinary approach to the epistemological research and founded the Genetic Epistemology, theory of knowledge based on the study of the psychological genesis of human thought. Piaget actually spent much of his professional career interacting with children and studying their thought process. His studies had a major impact on the fields of psychology and pedagogy. Jean Piaget was an exceptional kind of person. Since early age Jean Piaget had showed his powerful ability of observation.

0119228440577fc4f9ceea4dc7cb8c4dHis rising sign was in dexterous Gemini, an airy sign boosted with observational skills and intelligence, not to mention 2 major generational planets conjunct the 1st house (powerful Pluto and hypersensitive Neptune), affecting all of his vision of the world in general. Piaget was a prodigy child, becoming interested in natural history when a child, it is said that at his 11 years old, he published his first paper on his observation of an albino sparrow he noticed in the city’s square, leading the brief studying to be considered the beginning of his outstanding scientific career. In the 4th house we see the events related to the childhood of the person, while the 3rd house we see events related to the learning process of the child in school, with siblings and of the mind. Notice the Leo Stellium sharing both 3rd and 4th houses among Jupiter the universal teacher conjunct the cusp of the 4th house, telling us such child would show his gifts since young age, and the New Moon in Leo only do but to enhance the energy to its most creative potency. Fire signs are tendency of the all Zodiac element’s triplicities, they usually put their ‘discoveries’ out there and make them universal. The theories of Jean Piaget try to explain how intelligence develops in humans (specially in children), hence the name given to his science of Genetic Epistemology (the theory of knowledge), which is understood as the study of the mechanisms of increased knowledge.

astrological-chart-of-Jean-Piaget-by-rafael-vr.png

By the time he developed the genuine interest in psychoanalysis, Jean attended the famous lectures by Carl Jung. The 3rd house is where a human experience its pure intellect, here we hardly choose what to learn, it is the natural process of learning, while the 9th house represents the selective mind in which a human can decide rather or not that is worthless to maintain as truth to their hearts, to their capacity to simulate what kind of information will be useful in the near future. In Jean’s natal chart, the ruler of the 3rd which is the Moon, and the ruler of the 9th house (Saturn) are in almost exact square, remembering the New Moon falls in the sign of pedagogo Leo. The New Moon falls in the first house of intellect, that is, the house of Gemini and Mercury – the 3rd house of early education; in the year of 1921 when Jean wrote his first pedagogical theories, Neptune was transiting exact his New Moon in Leo (that is, the Sun as well) in the 3rd house. That year, Mars was also transiting the first quadrant of his chart to the second, that means Mars was activating his Leo Stellium among a conjunction to transiting Neptune. Mars is his 6th and 11th houses ruler. Mars ruled his daily life mundane activities (6th house – other house of Mercury) as well as his wishes and hopes for the future located in 11th house, the modern house of Uranus.

His studies of pedagogy revolutionized education because they actually overthrew various views and traditional theories related to learning, and that is Uranus! The planet square all his Leo Stellium, rebelling all his understanding about education while taking it to another level of perception. Realize that his natal Uranus was also conjunct traditional Saturn. We realize the T-square formed by Mars in Taurus opposite Uranus in Leo and both square Moon, Sun, Jupiter, Venus and Mercury all in Leo. With North Node in Aquarius it forms a grand fixed cross, indicating all his contribution to society where ‘intelligence’, children and knowledge are concerned. Jupiter wants to teach what is right, Saturn wants to teach you what is wrong, what you shouldn’t have done. But Jupiter wants more of you, it wants you to expand with such information, this is not the malefic teacher but the benevolent one. Saturn is conjunct Uranus in Scorpio in Jean’s chart, a none-conformist of regular rules and traditional understanding of society, and while in penetrating Scorpio, it offers a wild but deep focus on a subject of interest while shaking the foundation of what was considered a taboo in his life time. His natal Saturn more specifically was square his natal Moon by 1° orb only.

In 1918 while living in Zurich, Piaget worked in a psychology lab and apprenticed in clinical psychiatry, that year Jupiter entered Gemini, the planet of university and higher learning, thus it was transiting his 1st house while conjunction his natal Neptune and Pluto in Gemini. Jupiter is the planet that expands, and in Gemini, it expands our mental skills. In French, he studied psychopathology at the University of Sorbonne while conducting researches on the characteristics of child’s thought with French children and those mental disabled. Gemini and Virgo share the same planet ruler in astrology, that is, Mercury, the planet of the intellect and perception. As Gemini rises in Jean’s chart, Mercury is automatically ruler of the entire chart. Mercury is also ruler of his 5th house of children. Mercury shares the same and exact degree of Venus in Leo, which also rules the 5th house of children once the sign is intercepted in that house (in the milled of 2). So, we notice how important Mercury and Gemini for that matter, are in his chart, transiting as well as natal. The Jupiter transit actually activated his observational skills leading him to own a gift that was innate after all, initiating a process of learning and teaching, theorizing and applying it as truth. In that exactly same year of Jupiter’s massive transit to his chart while in Gemini, Jean obtained his Ph.D. in natural sciences at the University of Neufchatel.

REPORT

“Play is the answer to how anything new comes about.”
― Jean Piaget

Note I: By the time the  Full Moon in Aquarius comes in 15 days from now, it will be an almost eclipse, and for that I wouldn’t actually count that as an eclipse, perhaps a slight initiation provoked by but nothing major, why? timeanddate.com calculations show that the Sun, Earth, and Moon will be very closely aligned on this day, but there will be no lunar eclipse. There are several different ways to calculate eclipses, so some sources are listing this event as a penumbral lunar eclipse. In any case, viewers on Earth will not be able to see the Earth’s shadow on the Moon. So enjoy this New Moon cycle without feeling ‘eclipsed’ by 15 days from now.

Note II: The Saturn square Neptune is far in this particular new beginning, but the orbs are still countable. Once Saturn in Sagittarius is direct at 09° degrees in August 13th, it will soon square exact Neptune in September 11th, and for the sake of the Moon, we see her transiting tropical Sagittarius in both these days just cited. Interesting huh? The truth will be put under files for many people, Saturn means governmental and monetary issues to additional capitalist, Neptune is socialist an cares about humanity and the perfect society but it needs to sacrifice something really personal in order to transcend individual’s needs that are ego-based. I see a leader being arrested, captured or even killed, a powerful one, now, if that leader has high morals or not I couldn’t tell. The New Moon has ‘visibility’ in most part of Northern and Southern hemispheres, where the Moon and the Sun are at their highest position in the sky settling down to the west where Brazil is located at concerning the luminaries. While in Russia, North and South Korea, Japan, west of Australia and New Zealand are having the Moon rising on the East. The rest of the world will have their darkest night of the month as the Sun and the Moon are in opposite directions of the globe. Let’s see.

The most creative of all the New Moon has come, finally, with dramatic but well-studied entrance, the New Moon in Leo is trine Saturn retrograde in Sagittarius. Saturn has been in aspect with nearly all the New Moons so far in 2016. This is important, Saturn is still retrograde after 4 months and a half, all these New Moon with Saturn Rx in Sagittarius we were able to practice internal structure, others crumbled or simple denied every truth around the house it is transiting and the planets it is touching to natal ones. But once direct as told in August 13th, the denial will be burned out, there will be no more resistance to the truth, although the path to get there may be slow, as with Saturn, everything is.

Today you are invited by the Moon and the Sun to share with them, your intentions. I am Sun/Mars and Moon in Cancer, I really understand how our intentions have further development once settled in the mind and unconsciousness of the native as the consciousness allow such expression to happen in furtherance. But since this is a New Moon in the sign of ‘look at me’ Leo, we are going to talk about that. If  you notice the Leo glyph ♌ – we realize how much that reminders us of the lion’s tail. Renowned for its majesty, “the king of the jungle” reunites in its image both beauty and strength. When you look at a lion, it seems it is always proud of who ‘he/she’ is while sitting under the Sun with all that vary of colors in yellow-brow coats, slowly closing their eyes projecting the presence of a king. Mature male lions are unique among big cats due the thick brown or black manes that encircle their necks and protect them while fighting. This is a masculine sign, lions are bigger when male than female according to statistics, and both genres can reach loud roars that can be heard from 5 miles away. Lions are the second largest living feline species, second only to the tiger. Leo is governed by the Sun, today we are giving that chance, to roar so loud people will hear from us over miles away. This lunation we are giving the opportunity to start something really creative from the sketch, something you can be really proud of.

The New Moon falls in first decanate of Leo, although some astrologers will consider it to be falling in the second once the Moon is at 10° degrees and 57′ minutes almost completing 11° degrees. But this detail can drastically change the whole picture. The second decanate’s ruler of Leo is Jupiter. Jupiter is moving fast and forward and has nothing to do with the New Moon, it is isolated indeed, it is not even forming the T-square anymore by countable orbs, it has now reached its 22° degrees. I will stick to the Sun. Its seems this will be a lunation to be heard, seen and definitely to road out loud, such seeds will be very shiny and will need a total attention of yours when the Full Moon in Leo comes in 6 months from now, as shiny as they were, you will know the event was brought up by today’s new Moon emotional cycle. The Sun/Moon then trines Saturn by 1° orb. This tells me we are about to give our newly seeds a complete different structure, with many vibrant colors attached but we are to be very realistic about it. Mars has just entered Sagittarius (o° degrees), a complete different approach to achieve our goals will be standard as one reached for the truth of one’s own seeds. Mars lift up the condensed veils of dark Scorpio as daring as he is and reached the fiery eternal light of Sagittarius, the truth-seeker. From this New Moon, we no longer want our actions underground but above it. Although Saturn, the mainly planet the New Moon touches, is square Neptune, the Sun and Moon in Leo provide us with self-discipline and tremendous energy to keep going the rough waters of Neptune and to destroy the rigid walls of Saturn we have considered under all its retrograde period we are still under, because the Sun when it is in Leo, brings us a sense of self that is comfortable the consciousness, that is, we are instigated to feel more proud of ourselves than ever, and when the Moon comes forming a new phase, it invites us to look the best of us in order to reach emotional satisfaction.

  • ADDITIONAL

Seeing closer the chart, independently of the New Moon, there are others factor going on behind the wheel, which I think is prudent to briefly discuss about them; and in this case that would be the still going T-square where Saturn in Sagittarius is at the apex of the T-square and retrograde (meaning it will be experiences inwardly mostly) where it square Jupiter in Virgo and Neptune in Pisces.

THE T-SQUARE – Although Jupiter is moving on, it is clear to astrologers by the geometry formed by planets in the skies, the zodiacal aspect known as the “T-square” is particular in this new beginning, which means this will be a very challenging lunation. It will deal about beliefs, religion, idealism, irrationality and human’s unconscious is lightly more sensitive. Here, we are motivated by an accumulation of personal self-interests, which can make us communicate and pass on the wrong information. Prejudice, feminism, machismo, women in power, religion and beliefs will be major thematic the next 28 days or so, again! A T-square is the aspect more dynamic than the opposition itself, because it actually involves one opposition and 2 squares from the apex which in this case is Saturn Rx, the opposition then lies between Jupiter in Virgo and Neptune in Pisces. The recent New and Full Moons also had this configuration which is expected within the short window of time. A hard stimulation coming from the skies, it forces us to look for alternatives, for challenging that don’t exist but will if you act, and this is especially because the configuration urges us to foster ambition, and transiting Saturn will tell exactly where (the house it is transiting my dear, in your own chart). Neptune transit in the chart shows you where you are putting a beautiful scene, glamorizing… Jupiter transit in the chart shows you where your higher vision is being influenced, the house it occupies will tell you where exactly, and between these two planets, we are about to experience witchcraft, the square to Saturn though reveals an urgency to get matters done and resolved.

  • The Saturn/Neptune square – The combination by itself between the two planets is the major player in astrology for 2016. Saturn will be direct again on August 13th 2016, then it will square Neptune again on September 11th at 10° degrees either Neptune in Pisces and Saturn in Sagittarius. However, be ready for a restorative yet rousing Saturn trine Uranus by the end of 2016.
  • Recently, Jupiter exactly opposed Neptune in Pisces and squared Saturn in Sagittarius and if you turn on the TV for an instant on the news, things are getting rougher with ISIS taking over, conflicts kept in constant motion to promote violence on the Middle East. ISIS live map, shows an expansion of territory since the last Full Moon in Sagittarius, which still increases their control [watch here by yourself].

Qualities and Elements

  • 18% Cardinal
  • 17%Fixed
  • 55% Mutable
  • 55% Fire
  • 36% Earth
  • 0% Air
  • 9% Water

The chart shows a preponderance of Cardinal and Mutable qualities, we are more than just able to initiate a process of rebirth, we are willing to cooperate with the flow, something that cardinal people fail to understand, the more mutable energy, the easiest to adapt to changes carried on by the New Moon cycle. The medium percentage of fixed signs, is still enough for us to ground ourselves into the physical reality and act cautiously.

The Full Moon’s chart shows a complete lack of Air signs, while the majority of the planets are transiting in fire, earth and water signs. The elements in astrology are the essence of all the energies at the game, the lack of element Air compromises our intellect, interpretation of reality, jeopardizing our arguments and the capacity to rightly analyze events, people and ourselves. The fact by itself assures the lack a precise rational perspective in oneself and the world, but we are willing to overcome that with courage and will, persistence and practicality, emotional intelligence and sensitiveness towards others. A wise and sufficient instruction, would be finding in practical forms in real life the element the lunation most lacks, which in this case, is the element of Air. The chart tells planet Earth is already balanced with other elements by planetary astrological alignments, therefore, equivalence must be afforded through thinking, reflecting and using logic to close chapters.

FIRST OF ALL, SEE HOW IS YOUR SUN, MOON AND RISING SIGN CONDITIONS IN THE TABLE BELOW – HOW ARE THEY COMPATIBLE TO THE LUNATION?

TABLE-OF-SIGNS-AND-THEIR-COMPATIBIITY-2

Here we are dear ones;  Remember, here we are unconsciously dealing with beginning not with endings, somehow our body will respond to the Moon’s cycle that way, simple as that.

12 Ways people in general are about to experience whenever the Moon is New and is in Leo:

  1. very dramatic
  2. wanting to be a star (add the field of choice)
  3. feeling irradiante/radiant 
  4. wanting to lead a major project

Gambling on the future you

85367901491ea3e1bf8667b31276a594In 2002, the website American Psychological Association published an article entitled “Gambling on the future you” on gambling that helps explain why we make commitments we later regret. Leo is the sign that gambles, the risk-taker where with the Sun, they want to risk everything for the new sunshine of tomorrow, not caring enough for their daring actions of the night before. Fire signs, are optimistic by nature, by their elementary position they are already blessed with keeping up faith and are the most encouraging signs of the Zodiac. However, fiery decisions are the hardest to hold up back again when the consequences hit the fan, they come back as a shooting star. Many of our long-term decisions are no perfect than you and me, we commit mistakes. Choices such as deciding the people will be in our lives in a month to a decade from now, what to eat, our marriage partner, career, etc. As Harvard psychologist Daniel Gilbert, PhD, puts it: “We’re babysitters or caretakers or providers for our future selves, but we don’t always do such a great job of it.” The study first published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology (Vol. 131, No. 3) informs us psychologists Michael Sagristano and Yaacov Trope, PhD, and Tel Aviv University psychologist Nira Liberman, PhD, all from New York University, suggest by the research that when deciding on future courses of action, we tend to overemphasize abstract, high-level goals and ignore the concrete, low-level steps needed to reach them, telling us that as a result, our future obligations can turn out to be far riskier, laborious and more time-consuming than previously imagined. The simple method was the use of gambling tasks in order to investigate the importance of risks and rewards for decisions about the near and far future. The 5th house is where we experience our gambling in life, the events in which we risk much of all we have in order to bet for the most positive outcome. It was found through the investigation that individuals who expect to gamble in the near future prefer safe bets with small payoffs, but those who expect to gamble after a delay of several months prefer much riskier bets with high payoffs. Leo is a fixed sign, it needs to load up before gambling further bets, unless there is an addiction factor attached. Very different from Aquarius and the 11th house, the opposite sign and house, where here we worry much about the future that gambling seems out of the cards for many. Trope and Liberman’s anteccedent research has shown that whether humans render a future action in terms of its abstract or even concrete features, much depends on its distance in time, that is, the farther away it seems to be – the more we think about it in the theoretical format, leading one’s best guess with a dramatic impact on the decisions made. The daring analyzes also inform us how our far-future obsession with abstract goals, that is, thought of apart from concrete a reality and not knowing what to expect in the process, can cause us to focus on the desirability of an outcome while ignoring its practicability, even when the outcome is entirely arbitrary. “What these researchers are showing us is that the exact temporal distance of the future about which you are thinking makes an important difference,” says Gilbert. “They’re offering a very neat psychological explanation for a very robust economic phenomenon.” However, the studying of this particular phenomenon wasn’t new.  George Loewenstein, PhD, a professor of psychology and economics at Carnegie Mellon University, provides the simple example of an academic who decides months in advance to attend a conference in Europe: “The higher-level idea of going to Europe is really exciting you know, international travel… but then a week before the trip you start thinking about jet lag, about preparing the talk, how to cover your classes, getting your passport,” he reports. The idea of international travel to the academic is thrilling, exciting and it surely brings antecedent thoughts of happiness and fun, the former is here abstract, high-level and superordinate; but when the individual develops in the mind the whole process of practicability that needs to be done before such fun to happen, “getting the passport” and all of bureaucracy, the latter is concrete, low-level and subordinate. This examples resumes the typical of the difference between thinking about the distant future and thinking about the near future, say Trope and Liberman. “In the distant future,” explains Trope, “we think about how much the outcome is attractive to us. In the near future, we think, ‘Is it feasible?'” –  According to Trope and Liberman’s, here we see the nature in the differences in construal level (CLT) may be able to explain why the attractiveness of a trip to Europe declines as it grows nearer in time, as in this case, the concrete details are less pleasant than the abstract goals.

Having the final considerations considered, I hope now you become more vigilant when betting your own future, gambling on this that shouldn’t be seen as a gamble but important life choices. In the 5th house, we just want to enjoy life and not get it too serious, here is where we demand of no future’s worries neither wishing to have one, but simple exist in its most creative form of living. Here, at this house people are blazing to play, burning to speculate and impulsive to gamble.

Today we are about to celebrate it with a very dramatic unconscious behavior, for that, the sky announcing to humans and planet Earth: a New Moon in Leo – The most causative of all the New Moons by any astrological means. The house the Sun and Leo govern is the 5th house. In the session “Study Astrology” – “Houses” here at the website, I wrote about each house:

  • 5th house – Leo wants to affirm the unique expression of being, in this house we learn that creativity allows us to achieve our higher sense of self, and it becomes clear we are special somehow and unique, here the order is to create from the source, to feel the joy of being alive and full of life, Leo wants the world to know their presence and…
The 5th house is where humans literally experience their identity, which can be confused with the 1st house of appearance. While the 1st house we  keep ourselves under a mask, the 5th house is where we explore the originality inside us, the place where we no longer hide but simple exist, as a unique being. Planets transiting the 5th house can activate our original self, demanding the individual to be truth to oneself despite efforts to control the self-image from the 1st house says otherwise. When the Sun transits the 5th house of children and play, we want to enjoy what life has best to offer, that includes many entertaining activities. If that is not possible, the native will definitely feel more dynamically creative at work, at home, or in others kind of institutions. When Venus transits the 5th house, there could be many real possibilities of blind dates or casual romances, sometimes leaving emotional damaged when leaving such house of wild sex but erratic relationships from such placement, if not, the reinvigorating night could be used as a simple pleasure to dramatically fuel one’s life when in lack of it for a certain time. Ok enough of dirty talk. As far the 5th house is a succedent point in any astrological wheel, the 5th house is where humans concentrate their projects at certain transits here, at this point we no longer want to initiate something meaningful, but want to develop what has been started from the 4th house’s actions. Here we are told by astrology, the 5th house is where and how our latent and fiery creative expression can be explored at its maximum, our relationship with children can be seen here and the interest to exert an authority figure to such angels of innocence. Events occurring to our children, the coming of a child, the pregnancy couple’s expectations and validation, can be identified here in this house of the Sun and Leo, the house that curiously is related to events that brings the sudden interest for games and gambling. In solar returns, it is always interesting to notice that whenever planets are there connected with the Sun (even if the Sun is in another house, specially if in Succedent house), the native, if possible, is going to experience a great development of the creative self, an old sport is practiced again (vitality), romances are felt more passionate specially if really wanted/wished/praised by the other partner where the attention is fixed and aroused. This is not a discreet house like the antecedent 4th house, the 5th house we need to shine our self in order to be seen by the 11th house further on. The second fire house (meaning it is succedent) needs freedom of expression, otherwise it has problems, here in the 5th house we need to reintegrate our-self to establish a direction to the energy that shall be put into a fixed state, and that is usually spiritually motivated. As part of the quadruplicity of the fixed signs and ruling Succedent houses (the 2nd, 5th, 8th and 11th houses) it rightly tells us the experiences will be directed towards something condensed and synoptic concerning the sphere of money and possessions (2nd house), affecting the way we spend time to enjoy life (5th house), the events surrounding deaths around the individual and its own (8th house), and last but not least, as a consequence, the native’s hopes for the future and wishes (11th house) will be resulted of that coherence  where it can be applied.

The Astrology of Stavros Niarchos

THE-ASTROLOGY-OF-STAVROS-BY-RAFAEL-VR.png


Who was Stavros Niarchos?

Capricorn Moon children has a powerful instinct of fame and it is usually apparently the fact they are usually very ambitious since young age, they worry about the future than the majority and find in adults a magical presence of authority and discipline, projecting in them their own industrial emotional nature. Niarchos knew it better, and was the one who threw the net on the market and became a magnate in the family, from rich to multi-billionaire. Amidst the Great Depression, this man turned to be one of the world’s most innovative and successful 20th century businessmen. Niarchos built the first ships able to transport large quantities of oil, earning millions of dollars as the global demand for his ships grew. Stavros for many years used to be the owner of one of the largest privately owned tanker fleets in the world, consisting of an estimated 80 ships, had once owned a personal fortune which was estimated to be some four billion dollars.

“Stavros Spyros Niarchos (Greek: Σταύρος Σπύρος Νιάρχος, Greek pronunciation: [ˈstavros ˈspiros ‘ɲarxos]; 3 July 1909 – 16 April 1996) was a multi-billionaire Greek shipping tycoon. Starting in 1952, he had the world’s biggest supertankers built for his fleet. Propelled by both the Suez Crisis and an increasing demand for oil, he and rival Aristotle Onassis became giants in global petroleum shipping. Niarchos was also a noted thoroughbred horse breeder and racer, several times the leading owner and number one on the French breed list.”Wikipedia

Born already in a rich and wealthy family, his parents had origins in Lakonia and had just relocated to Greece (3 months before Stavros was born) from the United States where they were naturalized and had owned a department store in Buffalo, New York. Niarchos graduated from the Varvakios School and the Law School of Athens. In 1929, he started working in his uncles’ gristmill and soon exhibited his talent in business administration. During this period, Stavros was involved with merchant for goods convincing its great profits that could be obtained if the firm possessed vessels involved, that is, if they obtained their own private ships, once he recognized the substantial transportation expense in importing wheat. Stavros had Mercury conjunction Pluto in Gemini, a configuration that assures individuals privileged of the power of speech, in other words, a person that truly knows how to convince, or better yet, in his case, someone who knew what the transportation market (Mercury) would later need to survive (Pluto); In 1956, the Suez Crisis caused a crisis in the Suez Canal, increasing as a consequence the demand for those large tonnage ships that Niarchos had built 4 years earlier. The business flourished and he became a billionaire. Mercury-Pluto people are also known for their really deep persuasive techniques, sometimes unconsciously. The Moon-Uranus conjunction also has a touch in his ‘visions’ of the future and its needs. Uranus is future-oriented as well as Saturn, Capricorn and Aquarius, but Uranus foretells the future by generalized insights and quick perception of reality than the ordinary Mercury’s perception of the reality of now, Uranus and Aquarius foresee what is next and wants to be there at all cost. But lets talk more about the Moon now  and observe his astrological chart for a moment.

  • The Astrology of Ambitious and visionary Stavros

Unfortunately, the time of his birth is unclear, but the website astrodatabank has a clue but doesn’t know the origin of source and I will stick to that. According to them, the magnate was born on the third day of July in 1909 at 12:51 pm in Athens, Greece:

Stavros-Niarchos-chart-by-Rafael-VR.png

e1d5f7676d68ef0b2084926ac1f33ce4Capricorn fears the future, it needs somehow a proof that the future exits! They worry and are in constant concerned about where they will be at in 5 to 10 years from today, from yesterday, from the whole life. Realize this ambitious men was born during a Full Moon in Capricorn, meaning he had Sun in Cancer – the opposite sign. The Moon is detriment in the sign of cold-to-feel Capricorn, as it lies in a sign it is opposite the sign she rules, that is again, Cancer. If his birth time is right, Stavros had an almost total reversed chart of the natural order of things, which was projected as a very motivated person; the Moon is detriment in Capricorn, Jupiter is detriment (in Virgo), Saturn is at fall in Aries, all of his houses are opposite beginning from the rising sign in Libra when Aries, the opposite sign of Libra is the organic ruler of the 1st house etc. Whoa! This was a men that wouldn’t had never been stuck in life, not to  mention the cardinal cross, where cardinal signs of action (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) form the cardinal angles of the chart. The Full Moon proposes the 3rd of communication and transportation would be very luminous as well as the 9th house of the international land where the Sun occupies, a men who knew how to use his knowledge to literally execute his own dreams.

The Status, Uncles and a a $2 million Reimbursement

His emotional satisfaction lied on the 3rd house of close relatives. His uncles had a great part in the final cycle (Full Moon) of his life involving emotional security from this area of the chart, Stavros convinced his uncles to master and own a private squad, assuring them the action could bring millions more. Niarchos was a naval officer in the Greek Navy during World War II, during which time part of the trade fleet he had developed with his uncle was destroyed once the Allied Forces leased his first vessel. As the website snf.org writes, Niarchos participated in the Allied operations in Normandy and was awarded, among other distinguished service medals, the Commander of the Order of the Phoenix in 1977, the Royal Order of King George I, and the Royal House Order of SS George and Constantine. However, while Niarchos was serving in the Greek Navy. After receiving a $2 million reimbursement for his sunken vessels and a total of 16 Liberty vessels gifted to him by the American administration, Niarchos’s finances recovered, allowing him to convince his relatives to further reinvest in big tankers – remember that Mercury also rules over close relatives. He proved to be right. He created the largest private fleet in the globe and was therefore globally nicknamed as The Golden Greek. The nickname is usually seemed as a personal status of the person brought to the light of the public attention, that is astrologically, the 10th house, the place of our reputation.The ruler of his 10th house is the Moon, and the Moon is… well you know, full! Luminous while reflecting the golden rays of the Sun. The Sun opposite Moon in his chart is the aspect most exact in his chart. Remembering again, his uncles (Moon in the 3rd house) had a great role in it as well, they also assure all their future (Uranus) financial status, once the Moon conjunct Uranus in Capricorn, the business-minded sign of the Zodiac.

niarchos1Again, this was a great men full of ambition. Mars in Pisces was soft yes, but it was what gave him permission to go after the open sea, very Pisces indeed! Pisces and Neptune govern over the immensity of the ocean, different from the beaches that Cancer rules, or from those deep mysterious dark lakes without movement that Scorpio rules and enjoys. Mars in Pisces means: “seek for the high seas, the unknown! built your own ship, your own way to the oceans my men!”. So he did it. Mars in Pisces was part of his T-mutable square where Mercury and Pluto are at the apex of it, meaning that his will and desires (Mars), his higher aspirations and need to expand (Jupiter) were all stimulated by his intellect and perception of reality (Mercury) and deep survival instinct (Pluto). Mercury rules the area of transportation while Pluto virtues a person with powerful resources.

Interesting Fact I: The Sun in Cancer made him very famous among the woman. He had 5 marriages during his life. The Sun conjunct Neptune in Cancer would project in him as someone perfect for the woman in general, and ‘ideal’ men that all woman of that time would wanted to have as a husband. Of course, all his legacy was also an attraction indicator, and I think he knew that well and used to his favor. He attracted Princesses to woman from important and wealthy families since the beginning. Libra rising in his chart would have favored his good-looking and magnetic attraction even when someone is not seemed as “socially” beautiful, Venus as ruler of the chart inspires popularity among the opposite sex. For multiple marriages we usually see a mutable cross right away, Jupiter on the 1st or 7th, excess of mutable signs, which are things that his chart lacks. Perhaps if he hasn’t been famous and a successful persona, he would have stick to his first wife, perhaps 2 marriages maximum. But this was a men of money, big money, he had everything in his hands already, and Aries on the descendant means he would see relationships more of a challenging game than an actual urge, an area of conquer instead of surrendering to a significant other. Success changes people, as they see more from above than everybody else once they witnessed the world conspiring in favor for themselves in millions multitudes. His natal Venus, the planet of love and marriage was also in Cancer.

Interesting Fact II: 9th house is a place where everything is bigger, larger and better, this is the place of  large animals such as horses. According to wikipedia Niarchos was also a noted thoroughbred horse breeder and racer, several times the leading owner and number one on the French breed list. Only in this house, Stavros had 4 planets including the Sun. As wikipedia writes: “Niarchos began investing in thoroughbred horse racing in the early 1950s and won his first stakes race with Pipe of Peace at the Middle Park Stakes. After leaving the business for roughly two decades he came back in the 1970s and eventually put together a highly successful stable of racehorses that competed in France and the United Kingdom. He acquired the Haras de Fresnay-le-Buffard horse breeding farm in Neuvy-au-Houlme, France and Oak Tree Farm in Lexington, Kentucky where in 1984 he bred his most successful horse, Miesque. Niarchos was the leading owner in France twice (1983, 1984) and topped the breeders’ there list three times (1989, 1993, 1994). His prize horses were all trained by François Boutin, whose skill was a vital element of Niarchos’ success in the field.”

Interesting Fact III: Neptune rules over oils. Niarchos had Sun conjunction Neptune in the 9th house of Sagittarius and Jupiter, a conjunction that happens once a year for a few days. People with many planets in this house think big! here we see 2 personal planets (Sun and Mercury) interacting in close relation to 2 outer planets Neptune and Pluto. The Mercury-Pluto conjunction in there also tells me how much such configuration was needed in order for Stavros to seek for his oil’s transportation in real life.

Interesting Fact IV: Libra is rising in his chart, that means Venus rules his astrological chart. Venus is the planet of the arts in general, Libra and Venus people know how to admire the beauty of an art, its aesthetic nature and all things satisfying to the senses. Neptune is the higher octave of Venus, like in music, thus it brings a more tapered energy that is generational. Venus was conjunction his 10th house of public image. In 1956, when already wealthy, Niarchos acquired an important collection of arts actor Edward G. Robinson, and over the years put as one of the world’s major art collections, with over a hundred Impressionist paintings and post-impressionists. In 1989, he obtained the self-portrait of Picasso, “Yo Picasso” for US $ 47,850,000 million, not including Vincent van Gogh’s works, Francisco de Goya, El Greco and Peter Paul Rubens. As much fortune this men had, having a famous painting was perhaps the most satisfying thing ever in his life.
