Meet King Virgo & Knight Mercury

King Virgo and Knight Mercury were quietly discussing the details of their current plans in their wood

-paneled castle with a nice fire in the fireplace. King Virgo was dressed in tailor-made garments that fitted well but in earth colors, and his hair was perfect. Their delicate, beautiful wooden chariot was under the skillfully crafted shed next to the castle. They liked to go over the details of their plans in sequence to make sure the job would be done right and would not fall apart. You see, if a step is skipped, whatever they are doing, building or planting will not succeed. And they do not really enjoy fixing other’s mistakes because of non-sequential planning or not following the prescribed plan. King Virgo’s castle, although furnished in earth colors with much wood, was beautiful and tasteful. Knight Mercury, in his service to King Virgo, was a natural artist of plants and animals, and some of his art was on the walls adding to the beauty of the castle.

Knight Mercury serves two kings: King Gemini and King Virgo. He serves King Gemini with very quick thoughts that continually change because of insatiable curiosity. King Virgo is served with careful, methodical, sequential, practical thoughts. Each King and Knight in their own ways are flexible, although on the surface it does not seem like King Virgo is flexible. Both Kings like detail, with King Gemini wanting others to actually do it and King Virgo wanting to analyze the details himself.

All of a sudden, there was a bright, dramatic rush of air outside with someone trying to come in the locked door. Who is so pushy? When King Virgo went to the door, he discovered his next-door neighbor King Leo smiling and extending an expensive gift to King Virgo. Knight Sun was there, too, shining with bright warmth. Their friendly expansiveness mollified King Virgo who invited them in. You see, King Leo is generous by nature and gives to almost everybody. King Leo was grandly dressed with gold buttons and buckles on his clothing.

King Virgo invited King Leo to his see garden of herbs, vegetables and of course, wheat. King Virgo is the King of the harvest, so he told King Leo when the herbs and vegetables would be ready to pick and talked about how he would cook and serve them. King Virgo does not have an animal pet because he is interested in work, gardening and the environment. King Leo tried several times to turn the conversation to himself, but Knight Mercury deftly kept the conversation on King Virgo’s interests which King Virgo talked about with every little detail. King Virgo’s abode was furnished in earth colors with potted plants all around. He even had a pot of wheat beside the window. Knight Sun’s warmth heated the room without the fire, because Knight Sun is fire!

King Leo talked King Virgo into inviting the other kings. The first to arrive, of course, was King Aries and Knight Mars, who get along well with King Leo, but throw King Virgo off balance with their impulsiveness. Then King Taurus arrived with Lady Venus who get along well with King Virgo because King Taurus appreciates King Virgo’s garden and food so they talk about gardening and cooking.

With a whoosh of air, King Gemini arrived, who gets along with almost everybody. The conversation quickly became scintillating with many topics of conversation in no order. This bothered King Virgo who could not follow the continual changes in the topics of conversation. Kings Aries and Leo joined King Gemini in conversation and they laughed and laughed.

The next to arrive was King Cancer with Lady Moon. They get along well with King Virgo until King Virgo criticizes them, and they retreat to think about it. It took Lady Moon a few centuries to learn that King Virgo was really criticizing the situation, not her and King Cancer. But they still had to retreat sometimes to mull about it.

King Cancer and Lady Moon joined King Taurus and Lady Venus who they are quietly comfortable with and could talk about food, family and their homes. King Aries and Knight Mars joined them. Now, Kings Aries and Cancer are not supposed to get along, but they do, sharing their impulsive love of adventure and learning new things. After centuries of knowing each other, King Cancer learned not to let King Aries statements provoke him, and King Aries learned not to provoke King Cancer too much. Knight Mars had to learn not to be too forward with Lady Venus and Lady Moon because they would leave him to talk with others and his ego did not like that.

King Virgo prepared healthy and wholesome food for everyone. The table was perfectly set with beautiful decorations and serving dishes in precise placements. The food was perfectly cooked and served in order. Because King Virgo wanted a perfect dinner party, he arranged for compatible kings, knights and ladies to sit together so the experience would be pleasant. Knight Mercury put a small gift at each place setting in appreciation for the Kings, Knights and Ladies present.

After dinner the Kings, Knights and Ladies around groups discussing King Virgo’s latest project, sometimes adding helpful comments, which King Virgo had to take time to think about, so he did not make an immediate response.

It got late and time to end the nice party. As the Kings left, they each expressed an interest in meeting King Virgo’s other next-door neighbors, King Libra and Lady Venus. We’ll do that next time.

Aug 23 to Aug 30 2021

 Aug 23 to Aug 30 2021

Pluto is still at 24 Degrees Capricorn, Neptune at 22 degrees Pisces and Uranus at 14 degrees Taurus. Saturn this week is at 8 degrees Aquarius. If you have these degrees in your horoscope, they are active and are more important, meaning have more impact on your chart than the daily predictions. For instance, Uranus is relating to  my chart and has more focus than any other planetary relationships, meaning it is good for me to pay attention to where the changes occur and how to deal with them for the highest good of everyone.  (Personal note: Pluto is opposite Cancer. I am a Cancer and two more of my friends have died; meaning changes in relationships beyond my control. ) The other, daily, forecasts are secondary.

Venus is in its own sign of Libra, indicating relationships want to be inter-dependent and cooperative with diplomacy, grace and courtesy. Mars is in Virgo meaning projects need to be in order, practical with sequential or detailed instructions and process.

The outer planets are like the hour hand on your clock, with the dailies the minute hand, and the Moon’s movement would be like the second hand. This means the outer planets take longer, the inner planets much less time and the Moon fleeting.

The same for the USA: the outer planet of Neptune is in opposition to the USA natal Neptune and is more important and has more impact than the daily predictions. We are witnessing, and some of you may be experiencing, the emotional situation in Afghanistan. When you read the daily predictions for the USA, the Neptune situation is the most important and visible. There may be good days for the USA and they will happen, but in the midst of the chaos and may not be noticed.

Aug 23: Nice day. Balance and cooperation in relationships and benefits for the good of large groups. Overall, a stable but bright day. Your loved one may be cooperative and want to be with your friends, too. There could be good news regarding the pandemic. Libra and Aquarius have a great social day, including Gemini. Aries may be asked to be with your partner instead of alone, but you will have fun. Cancer and Capricorn have a good, mildly stimulating social day. Leo may have the opportunity to be included in a social event but let go of being in control.

Aug 23 USA:  the president has success with a change regarding the medical situation and perhaps the work force: the beginning of the infrastructure activity?

Aug 24: the news either opposes humanitarian efforts, opposes a court decision and may oppose everything, the news is critical of the chaos and lack of hard facts. Virgo is especially frustrated because of the lack of facts and detail, which they try to solicit to no avail. Pisces may feel picked on, with Gemini and Sagittarius irritated by either the news or conversation. Taurus and Capricorn can help Taurus, with Cancer and Scorpio helping Pisces. Sun and Moon in the see-saw quincunx relationship showing that things do not go as expected, asking you to accommodate minor changes, especially with Aries and Virgo. Practical details are asked of impulsive plans. Taurus and Capricorn can help Virgo; Leo and Sagittarius can help Aries.

Aug 24 USA: the news strongly challenges laws and agreements but reveals the lack of planning for the Afghanistan situation and urges speed.

Aug 25 USA: opportunity from one in authority regarding the foreign situation for the president. Let us hope this opportunity is taken.

Aug 26: attempt to balance relationships by cooperation and interdependence. Libra and Aries trying to balance. Cancer and Capricorn have a mildly challenging day, which they enjoy. Better news about solution to a big problem using practical methods. Virgo and Capricorn help solve a practical situation, with Taurus helping manage. Cancer may continue to  experience relationship changes. Scorpio and Pisces have the opportunity to be included in the problem solving.

Aug 26 USA: announcement from the White House of a financial solution to a foreign situation and to the emigrant and refugee situation. Could be the announcement of the evacuation and resettlement of the Afghan refugees around the world.

Aug 27: adjustment to humanitarian situation, meaning the details of the situation require more practical or realistic application to a situation involving many. Could be news of the administration of the vaccines. Virgo announces the details and practicality of the situation, asking Sagittarius and Aquarius to make adjustments. This is mild and should be accomplished easily with cooperation. Moon goes into Taurus, adding practicality and common sense to the situation.

Aug 27 USA: the president either challenges the opportunity from the one in authority or lets go of the entity. The deadline is fast approaching for evacuations.

Aug 28: relationships adjust or accommodate changes because someone does not want to act. Libra frustrated because the situation seems stuck. Libra is a leader sign, meaning they like activity. Cancer and Aries may have a mildly challenging day, Gemini and Aquarius a pleasant day.

Aug 28 USA: the news is incomplete and changes what is reported, then agrees with a big plan that brings practical change. The president offers a diplomatic solution and there is an opportunity from the one in authority to a proposed law or agreement. The day ends well for the USA, remembering the above with Neptune.

Aug 29: Moon goes into Gemini adding light conversation, positive outlook and the ability to perceive all sides to a problem.

Aug 29 USA: change in a relationship with someone from the past regarding finances. This may mean discussion of who will pay for what and could be the Afghanistan situation or the southern border immigrant situation. It is not settled, only a change in the way something is done.

Aug 30: Mercury goes into Libra through end of October because it goes retrograde Sept. 27. News and conversation about relationships, diplomacy, contracts, agreements and the law. Libra becomes more verbally assertive than usual and announces plans. Aries is challenged to be cooperative, with Cancer and Capricorn having challenging conversations requiring cooperation and diplomacy. Gemini and Aquarius enjoy good conversations, Leo and Sagittarius the opportunity to be included. Quarter Moon in the signs of Gemini and Virgo who feel the most irritated, followed by Sagittarius and Pisces. The Moon in Gemini adds diplomacy and the ability to see all sides of situations, even though it may be an active day.

Aug 30 USA: announcement from the White House regarding diplomacy, agreements and perhaps a law. The desire is for cooperation and diplomacy, hopefully accepted.

Afghanistan! & a Viet Nam Vet reply


The situation in Afghanistan!

The announcement of halving the number of forces in Afghanistan, was announced Nov. 17, 2021 by the previous president. This was the beginning of the change in the USA situation in Afghanistan. (T Pluto quincunx N Neptune). This began to give the Taliban time to plan their takeover.


We’ve been saying for some time now in previous newsletters that the USA would be going through our Neptune Opposition. What does that mean? It would have been written in previous newsletters that a foreign entity would disappear or be deceptive. Well, that is certainly happening!


   The opposition indicates losses or disappearance of a foreign entity. This began to actively happen behind the scenes the last two weeks of this April, 2021 and was active until end of May, appeared to go away, but actually was just hidden between end of May until the last week of this July, last month, when it became more visible. The degree will be exact August 22, this month! The situation will be active through September 7, with September 11 the stated withdrawal by the previous president. This gave the Taliban plenty of time to make their plans. It also gave plenty of time for the deposed Afghanistan president to plan his escape, which he did with airplanes filled with cash. 

   Something is certainly and apparently amiss regarding intergovernmental communication. Communication would have been, and still will be, incomplete, incoherent, sometimes chaotic and at times deceptive, certainly from or about the foreign entity. The situation continues at least through first two weeks of March 2022, then wanes. This means the news may not be reliable because it is incomplete, chaotic and sometimes deceptive. Remember the Afghanistan’s are a different kind of people whose values are different from ours, and they do not like us, remember. So, what is reported may be deflective and deceptive methods. 

   Even though this relates to Afghanistan, other communication in the USA is incomplete, sometimes chaotic and at times deceptive. It is wise to fact-check what you see and read in the news and online; especially online because it is too easy to print anything anyone wants, true or not. 

   This is a major time of transition for the USA, most likely indicating the end of foreign intervention in other nation's affairs. This is the prelude to the next major experience to bring transformation to the country. This is the Pluto return, which only happens every 247-248 years. We will report about this in a forthcoming email.

   It is also wise to have what the Cayce readings call an Ideal. The Ideal is the Ideal way you want to be: whether peaceful, joyful or whatever. I do this by asking myself what virtue do I want to express? When situations become incomplete, upsetting or confusing, I apply my Ideal. That means I ask myself: how does the virtue or Ideal I want to express relate to this? Then decisions can be made according to that Ideal or virtue.

Remember to apply your Ideal or your desired Virtue to your situations. You will be glad you did because it may just bring you peace. Cayce readings said this is the most important think you can do.

A Viet Nam Vet replied about Afghanistan

Thank you for this perspective


In April 1968, myself and a man from Georgia stepped off the plane at Ben Hoa airbase, Viet Nam. In less than two weeks, we engaged with South Viet Nam soldiers on our side and immediately determined they would not fight on their own for their country and that S. Viet Nam without American support could never win the war. Nonetheless, they were very nice people and fun to be with. Attached is a picture of a group of S. Viet Nam soldiers. The soldier on the right is Jimmy P. He lives in the U.S. He got out.  (Picture not included).

EVERYONE that was there on the ground knew the U.S. would not win the Viet Nam war 7 years before the war ended in 1975! The same thing was happening in Afghanistan. The same exact thing. 

Did everyone back home in the U.S. during those 7 years know what was going on? No! In fact, just the opposite. We loved and played with the Vietnamese children in the field and had great trust and friendship with their parents. All of them! And what were Americans told back home? We were baby killers! 

My strong recommendation regarding the Afghanistan War is not to conclude anything based on information from any press or any administration. Conclude nothing. For example, even after 50 years, most people still don’t know that Charles DeGaulle ‘planted the seeds’ for the Viet Nam war. We have to wait a few decades to gather enough reliable information to really understand what happened in Afghanistan. Right now, it's only a Shakespearean play.

Nonetheless, until then, I’ll put my ‘money’ on the following: The Afghanistan people and their children are really NICE people.
