29 September 2012

HARVEST MOON: This weekend's full Moon is the Harvest Moon, the full Moon closest to the autumnal equinox, which marks the beginning of autumn in the Northern Hemisphere and spring in the South. Before electric lights, farmers working after sunset relied on the light of the Harvest Moon to help them gather ripening autumn crops. Look east for the Harvest moonrise on Saturday night. The Harvest Moon will float just above the planet Uranus in the sky and sky watchers can get a great look at the celestial show. If sky watchers wish to see Uranus through their own telescopes Saturday night, they should scan just below the moon and look for the only green "star" in the field of view.

INCOMING SOLAR STORM CLOUD: Magnetic fields around sunspot 1577 erupted on Sept. 28th, hurling a coronal mass ejection (CME) almost directly toward Earth. The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) recorded the cloud as it raced away from the Sun faster than 2.2 million mph: NOAA forecasters estimate a 50% chance of strong geomagnetic storms around the poles on Sept 30th when the cloud reaches Earth. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras, which might be intense enough to see in spite of the full moonlight.

The Solar storm cloud would intensify the energy of the full moon, so expect a busy Saturday night and Sunday. The Moon and Uranus will both be at 6 degrees of Aries; the Sun opposite at 6 degrees of Libra, with Pluto at 6 degrees of Capricorn. This is an explosive situation, possibly a trigger point of the Mideast crisis, which involves the United States. As you know, the full moon brings the “lunies” out, and people overreact. This full moon indicates the ones overreacting will be Aries, Libra and Capricorn, with Aries the instigator. Aries gets bored with stagnant or slow-moving situations and stirs the pot to get things moving. Libra wants to smooth things over – but only until pushed too far, which could be this full moon. Capricorn wants plans to be in order, and Capricorn’s plans are provoked out of order with this full moon. The areas of the body indicated are the head, especially the brains and upper teeth; the bladder and adrenal glands; and if Capricorn resists too mightily, the knees, bones and skin. Aries is the sign of guns, fires and explosions, Libra is the sign of beauty and diplomacy, and Capricorn is the sign of structure and plans. 

Cancer can feel the vibes from all the activity and enjoy it if you wish. Taurus and Scorpio may want to withdraw but may be included in money issues. Gemini and Aquarius are good with people and can help others see all sides to the issues and manage the situation, asking Leo for their good administrative help. Virgo and Pisces may want to get away from it all, and Sagittarius goes on a symbolic trip, although Sagittarius likes to make peace.

What can you expect with this unstable planetary situation that is mirrored in world events? More explosions, fires, gunfire and revolutions. As you know, the world is experiencing drastic change as revealed by the Mideast revolutions. This weekend some situations could come to an explosive or sudden crisis. The United States is embroiled in the controversy of government reporting of the assassination of the Libyan ambassador, and this may peak this weekend. Watch the news.

Uranus' atmosphere is dominated primarily by hydrogen and helium, with a small amount of methane that gives the "ice giant" its bluish-green tint. The planet has a ring system and 27 known moons. It's also tilted so far that it essentially orbits the sun on its side; researchers think the planet may have been knocked askew by a collision with another large body long ago. As for Uranus with its singular green color and wild axial tilt, its permanent overcast never allows us to see markings of any kind, and yet its story is nothing short of fascinating.

Do you think you could apply this to your Aquarian Friends? Could the 27 moons indicate 27 different types of interests and friends? Are your Aquarian friends so tilted they see life  from a different perspective? We know our Aquarian friends think differently, and this could be why; their patron planet is tilted, enabling them to perceive life from a different angle. Uranus is the planet of change and Aquarians dance through life to a different drummer; they love change around them, are independent, enjoy knowing many different kinds of people and having different, exciting experiences. Uranus is called the ice giant above, and Aquarius is sometimes called cold and abstract. In reality, Aquarians are generous, loving people, but they make decisions based upon knowledge instead of feelings. They love children.

THE ONLINE SLOOH SPACE CAMERA will webcast live observatory views of Uranus and the most famous full moon of the year Saturday (Sept. 29). One show begins at 7 p.m. EDT (2300 GMT), and another follows three hours later; viewers can watch the free broadcast on their computers or mobile devices at A panel of experts will be on hand during both webcasts to discuss the Harvest Moon, Uranus and just what Slooh's feed is showing. These panelists include Bob Berman, contributing editor and monthly columnist at Astronomy magazine; Slooh observatory engineer Paul Cox; and Slooh president Patrick Paolucci. “The Harvest Moon is widely misunderstood," Berman said in a statement. "Its behavior is unique, and yet its appearance is no different from any other full moon. That will be one major focus of Saturday night's live coverage. If sky watchers wish to see Uranus through their own telescopes Saturday night, they should scan just below the moon and look for the only green "star" in the field of view, Slooh officials said.

Earthsong: Music of the Spheres

Edgar Cayce often referred to the Music of the Spheres in his readings. Science is gradually catching up with spiritual knowings. 

The video is beautiful and scientifically described, well worth two minutes of watching.

Astrological forecast for the United States.

The extreme Islamists declared war on the United States again 11 September 2012.

Libyan official says attack on US Consulate in Benghazi that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three American staffers was a two-part militant operation timed to 9/11, carried out under cover of anti-American protests, that continued today — an account that comports with what House Intelligence Chairman Mike Rogers earlier told Fox News. Read more here

The attacks are at the end of three Saturn cycles, transits or processes that began between the middle of November and the middle of December of last year, 2011. They repeated from the end of March to the middle of May this year of 2012 and ended with focus dates of 8/6, 9/11 and 9/13 this year of 2012. These dates reveal the long-range planning of the attacks that were meant to be deadly. One of these Saturn cycles, though, reveals that protection was provided for many, so the death toll was not so high.

The United States is the brunt of the violence (obviously) exploding on the 11th anniversary of 9/11. For the United States, the public violence is from 9/9 and 9/13 and then it should subside from the public eye. The United States government should have been aware this should happen and should have had protection in the embassies around the world. There will be more upheaval regarding either foreign powers or the population of the United States October 14 this year.

The planets of revolution, Uranus and Pluto are in a very tense situation with each other, reflecting the agitated world situation, with the Arab revolutions and anarchy throughout the world. This is evidence that the old, out-worn, established order of things is breaking down. The extreme tension and danger is a process that began the end of June this year of 2012. The world situation is explosive again, and is especially contentious between August 20 and October 1 of this year. The most dangerous time will be September 19, when you can expect something decisive to happen. It may seem to ease off after the crisis, but it re-surfaces the end of May 2013, the beginning November of 2013;  the end of April, middle of December of 2014 and finally, the middle of March 2015. It is obvious this is a long-term process with spikes of violence that demand attention. 

Not only are transiting Pluto and Uranus in stress with each other in the sky, they are busy indicating drastic change in the United States. More is written about that here. The last time Pluto went through Capricorn was between 1762 and 1777, the years of the American Revolution. More is written about that here.

The planet Pluto transited, or passed into, the sign of Capricorn the end of January 2008, signaling strong upheavals in society brought about by strong political force, generally focused in business and structured entities, as revealed by the sign of Capricorn. I had not written about this transit of Pluto because I thought it signaled severe danger to the life of the President of the United States and did not want any writing to add to a dangerous situation. Hindsight reveals that one person, perhaps the president via executive order, has forced change upon the country that affects the homeland itself, the employment and financial sector, foreign relations and immigration.

The presidential elections of 2008 swept in lawmakers who quickly passed laws and a president who created executive orders that by-passed the Constitution and have changed the United States. Pluto either signals transformational change with cooperation of the populace, or transformational change at the direction of one person. Pluto is forceful, domineering and “my way or no way” in the negative. Pluto is strong, cooperative and steadfast in the positive. You can decide whether Pluto is cooperating with you or ordering you about by reading what the slew of executive orders are. A list of them is here.
Transformational or structural change in the financial sector began 9 March 2009 and lasted through 19 October 2010. The first activity was the government takeover of GM and Chrysler. This same time period reveals change in the labor unions, which benefited from the GM and Chrysler takeovers.

Between January and November of 2011, there was focus on forced changes in allied relationships, immigration and funding of services for the population, some of which was done by presidential executive order.

The Occupy Wall Street movement began 17 September 2011. The restlessness and possibly behind-the-scenes planning began in May. The strength of the movement went through end of February 2012. There are two transits that indicate the Occupy movement, one just restlessness and fun for the youth, the other an attempt to change America via anarchy and violence.

Now we come to 2012:

The end of February through first ten days of March ended the anarchy, but there will be changes as a result, and let us hope the changes are to be more free instead of change without thought of consequence.

Beginning February 20, repeated 2 June and ending 20 December this year, Pluto reveals necessary, forced adjustment in the labor force because of financial circumstances. Accommodations must be made to take into account the lack of money in the country.

Uranus has a cycle that indicates sudden breakthrough or freedom for immigrants. The first date was 19 April, will repeat 14 October, with the third date 8 February 2013. This means immigrants experience more freedom of movement. There could also be sudden change in public relations and alliances.

Jupiter joins the situation, with a cycle of freedom of the work force related to immigrants. The first date was 24 July and repeats 23 December this year and 11 March 2013. This may not be entirely peaceful, as Jupiter also indicates rebellion between 29 August and 19 November this year and again 14 April 2013.

Neptune began a fortuitous situation with young people and workers in May that is quiet now, but will begin to benefit them the end of February 2013, and finalize between 29 September and 27 December of 2013. Neptune is associated with glamor and charisma, and in the United States chart Neptune reveals glamor around the president. He certainly has had a good time with movie stars and being on TV. In a personal chart this would be an ideal love situation where both would sacrifice for the other, or a time of becoming noticed and famous. Perhaps the sacrifice of labor will benefit them through 2013, and add more people to the work force.

It looks like an attempt to balance the finances or budget the beginning of September, again 4 November, just before the elections and again April of 2013. 

Exact on 5 October, an indication of the financial adjustment of the real estate market, adjustment of workers and youth, adjustment to college grants and loans. This being the realization that the Utopian prices, grants, high salaries and benefits are over and everybody is brought down to reality. Any unrealistic demands or expectations will not be granted. 
The 31st of October there is a one-time calming of the work force and a stabilization of finances, which precedes balance between responsibility and freedom, and between Democrats and Republicans. This begins after the election, the first date of the balancing cycle the 24th of November of this year, and repeats 31 May and 14 August of 2013.

The election coverage will be another article.

The United States ends the year with a combination of stability and civility and the beginning of adjusting responsibility with freedom and changes.

As the nation goes into 2013, there is an adjustment, especially for the media, of the perception of the president and the presidency.

Blue Moon and solar Flares affecting you

The full, blue moon was August 1, 2012 and the magnificent solar flares are happening through September 3. 
The beautiful blue full moon and solar flares are all happening with the sun in the sign of Virgo. The full moon was in the sign of Pisces/Virgo. Virgo will be stimulated with a lot of solar energy, making you more nervous and possibly having stomach upsets. Eat a light diet with small amounts of raw vegetables and you will be okay. Pisces may believe you are being criticized, but it is only irritation coming from the other, and is not personal. During the full moon both Virgo and Pisces could have acted in a more daring manner. Gemini and Sagittarius can be irritated because of requests for mundane detail.

Taurus and Capricorn are in the right place at the right time for successful work or practical endeavors.  Cancer and Scorpio have opportunities to expand your field of work, please accept. Leo and Libra are somewhat neutral. Aquarius and Aries adjust to dealing with practical details.
