So, I have a #Gemini rising buddy who knows me well, and knows what intrigues me astrologically, especially if a politically "mundane" astrological event also intrigues them. They've found one, since mundane astrology mostly bores me to tears. So, thanks & kudos to them.
Trump did something really interesting yesterday. He published an Enemies list, pretty much 47 years and a day before Richard M. Nixon did on August 16, 1971. Yes, that's a #JupiterReturn. So, that's the 1st interesting thing. Here are two charts for the two Enemy lists.
Nixon's enemy list publishing date is in the center and Trump's is the outer wheel. I used Regiomontanus for this chart cuz I wanted to see exact house cusps.
Looking at my #Gucci, it's about that time. It's #Cancer time. (Older heads will know, I likely don't literally have a Gucci. But a stroll down hip-hop memory lane is apt for this sign, no?)
And this is special for me since there might be folks of a particular sign, either by Sun, moon or rising, who are your Ride-or-die folks. Well, #Cancers are mine. I don't have to go looking for them or that. It just happens. Consistently. So, they're dear people for me.
Once consciousness has explored dimensions of risk & curiosity in #Gemini, it seeks out safety, responsibility, containment & renewal in #Cancer
On June 14, 6-7:30 pm EDT, I'll be hosting a webinar: "Discovering your part in your generation’s mission with Uranus." Uranus has gone into Taurus.
It’s now time for those born with Uranus in Sagittarius (roughly born between February 1981-December 1988) to step forward with their mission. This doesn’t mean other generations are off the hook, though. During this 90-minute webinar, I will clarify:
• How the 7-year transit of Uranus through a sign clarifies each generation’s mission
• When that generation will likely act on its mission
• Ways to discover how this mission will likely manifest in your personal chart.
Let's talk about tonight's #Scorpio full moon. This year only one or two countries will celebrate this moon as Wesak, the day assigned to the Buddha's birthday. It will be next month's full moon in more countries, many who follow the sidereal zodiac.
Last night, I had a celebration, of sorts, attending a Sufi dhikr at a friend's house, led by a Sheikh schooled in the Sudan and other places where the tasawwuf is taught. It was magical and worth the trek back to Bed-Stuy, where I lived until last year.
The Sheikh made clear that this work was about the purification of the heart. I don't think he's into astrology. But I couldn't help but marvel at the timing of the event. That's what the #Scorpio full moon is about too.
As we move from time of the Ram (Aries) to the Bull, there's a shift from "Being" and an interest in fiery identity to embodying, holding, and having.
We could say that Light takes shape or form.
As the light of Aries crystalizes into shape & material expression, we find those changes in Taurus like greater groundedness, build-up of reserves of energy, more purpose in movement & a smoothness of coordination.
So, this convo about qualifications of this curator position for African art at the Brooklyn Museum has gotten me thinking about #SaturnInCapricorn. I would love to know if Brooklyn Museum purposely sought out qualified candidates of color, especially of African descent.
But I also can believe, per even the little I know about the Art AND Archeology field, since both new curators have degrees in that field, that there aren't many sisters & brothers in that field. We are not plentiful in all areas of academia & cultural institutions.
Yes, some of that is systemic racism and based on the root causes of systemic racism. That I've never questioned. But there's another issue here, too. Some folks also don't play the long game, either. That's #SaturnInCapricorn.
For starters, and I own this as my opinion & not practice for all astrologers or astro-lovers, I never recommend casting a chart in the early stages of dating. Get to know the person before you get to know his/her chart.
I say this because a chart should be used as a means to understand a person deeper, so that's more for when you're getting serious or making some joint big decision together, whether that's sex (beyond the 1st date), moving in, getting married, becoming exclusive...
In 2000, when I was a tech trainer at a Catholic elementary school, I went on a field trip to Baltimore to Dr. Carson speak. Had heard great things about him. But hearing him speak & reading his energy, I felt he had lost his way. So many brothers like this...
They mistake their brush with hardship as testament to the fierceness of their will, rather than also chance, grace of God, or whatever. The whole message of "If I can, you can, too!" is...good, but limited. It's 1 story of possibility out of many others...
...with less or more possibility. My observation is that people who forget this lesson often feel they're entitled and have earned more than what's due to them. (Like I often describe exalted planets, like the coming Mars in Capricorn.)
