In the Stars

Many years ago when I was just getting started in websites one of my clients was a very talented gentleman that had a penchant for many things esoteric and one of them was astrology. he “ran my chart” and while I have never been one to believe in astrology as such there are some quite profound things related to the field that have happened in my life that make me wonder.

Here is what my friend Mark Saint Amand came up with.

View of the Whole Sky

The curved line that the planets are on is called the ecliptic, it is the Sun’s yearly path through the zodiac.  All of the planets will be found on or near this line.

1955_J11The dominant feature is that it is just after sunrise, a day person willing to work out a new life time.

With Scorpio at mid heaven we have the beginnings of an ability to make things, to work with the hands, as we go along we will see if this is reinforced by the planets and stars.

The square of the zodiac is square to the four directions, but not aligned.  Aquarius, the south of the zodiac is below the eastern horizon, soon to rise.  Scorpio, the west of the zodiac is at the southern mid heaven.  Leo, the north of the zodiac, is the west horizon.  Taurus, the east of the zodiac, is below the north horizon.  Although not aligned east to east it is still aligned square to square.  This would then be a stabilizing quality.

Venus is about as far from the Sun as Venus gets with Mercury clear over on the far side, quite a wide spread, approaching that of the widest possible.  I would think this would make a person wide minded in family matters and good with people although it is nearly opposite the ideal placement of Venus quite near the Sun and Mercury nearby.

Eastern horizon

1955_J12Equuleus is a colt in front of Enif, the nose of Pegasus.  Delphinus is considered the most beautiful of constellations, associated with the dolphin, and the Delphic oracle of old Greece.  Cygnus is a swan and Aquila an eagle.  The arrow of Sagittarius, Sagitta, flies between them adding a dynamic to the eastern line.  The bright star in Lyra is Vega, called Abhijit in India, the star of Krishna amidst the constellation of music.  On the whole a lovely east.

 The Sun is a Capricorn, an earth sign, practical.

Southern Horizon

1955_J13Venus, Saturn, and Neptune across the south.  Venus is just approaching the plane of the galaxy.  Saturn is right at what is called the ‘gate of heaven,’ a circle of stars in Libra.  Saturn is hard, has a long memory, and is thought to be the revealer of that which is hidden.  Neptune in Virgo would be what, idealism in a favorable emotional climate?  Saturn so placed would probably make a person’s handiwork more practical than extravagant, the Saturn influence is towards physical limits, something we all must adjust to.

Lupus is now a wolf although of old, in the old Greek, Lupus was Therion, a wild hairy creature that gets educated to the ways of heaven by Centaurus.  Wild hairy creatures can be educated by words or blows or both and Centaurus, just below the horizon can do it all.  With Centaurus below the horizon the teaching influence goes to Ophiuchus.

 Ophiuchus is a doctor with two snakes, Cauda is the big strong one that seems to go up and away to the high left, Caput is caput, hence vertical on the favored right.

Western Horizon

1955_J14The bright star next to Neptune is Spica in Virgo, it is associated with the bright sat at the bottom of Bootes, Arcturus the shepherd.  This is a favored area of the heavens.

Leo is about an hour from setting, still quite influential.  Pluto moves so slow that your whole generation for about 5 years before and 15 years after will have Pluto in Leo.  Courage is a virtue unlike any other virtue.

Corvus is called the ‘Raven of Apollo’ and Crater is called the ‘Cup of Apollo.’  Sextans is a modern constellation, a sextant I think, but I usually ignore the modern constellations and look rather to the old Greek scroll of the heavens.

Northern Horizon

1955_J15Cassiopeia is the ‘Queen of the South’ and Cepheus is the ‘King of the North.’  Draco is thought to be part of the ‘hold the universe together’ energy.  The galaxy Andromeda in Andromeda is about an hour before rising, it is about below the NNE point.

Risings and Settings

The angles of observation for the rising, zenith (the time the planet is at mid heaven) and setting are:

The numbers in parentheses at the end of certain lines seem to be a slight correction for real location as different than apparent location due to atmospheric refraction.  As such these could only be approximations for refraction will vary with air pressure and temperature.

The Circle of the Ecliptic, the Zodiac Constellations

1955_J16Jupiter and Uranus in conjunction, this would work with the Scorpio energy, Jupiter would offset the undue technological influence of Uranus.  The two bright stars at the head of Gemini are Castor and Pollux, the twins.

Mercury is at or near the center of the southern quadrant of the zodiac.  Pisces Australis is the constellation for the ‘gold fish of esoteric knowledge.’

The moon and Mars in Pisces, looks like intelligence in family protection, social protection, the guardian, a smart Mars.

Sidereal Astrological Chart with Aspect Chart and Extended Aspect Chart, Equal House System

1955_J60Note that the chart is sidereal, real time.  It is not the tropical chart commonly used by western astrologers.

In an equal house system the first house starts at the eastern horizon.

A stable Sun, a smart Mars, a smart matter of courage with Mercury Pluto, good distribution around the circle.  An astrologer could talk for hours, you may as well be your own astrologer.
