2 million views!

Yesterday this blog reached a landmark:  two million page views since 2005.  I want to thank all of my readers, especially the ones who have stuck with me year after year, through interesting times and not-so-interesting times, for the inspiration to keep coming up with articles that are worth reading.

While I’m thanking people, I want to thank my sister Jill who was the first blogger I ever knew and helped me set up the initial Blogger format, and Jeff who was the first astroblogger that linked to me.  Jeff recently helped me with the change to my blog format and provided hours of relentless support.  And of course Elsa, who may have been the first astrology blogger ever and who used her growing success to encourage and support the rest of us who came later.

Finally, I’d like to thank Beliefnet for the exposure offered by its hosting of this blog, and for granting me ownership of the contents and the freedom to do with it what I wish.

I remain committed to providing you with the highest quality astrological reporting, and always welcome your comments!

Astrological Take on the Year’s Craziest Political Stories

I’m working feverishly to write the January Skywatch and to finish my forecast article on the Astrology of 2010, so rather than write a fresh post for you today I will post a link to this fascinating look by Patrick Watson of the political events of the past year and their astrological significations.  The White House party crashers, the significance of Joe “You Lie” Wilson, the Healthcare town hall protests, the election protests in Iran, and the Obama “Birther” controversy – all are detailed here with full-color astrological charts.
Enjoy!  And if you’d like to sign up to receive the Skywatch article tomorrow and the 2010 article over the next few days, just visit my website and fill out the form (it’s free!)..
Happy New Year!

The return of the Astrological Musings Community!

The bugs and kinks have been worked out of the Community, and I’ve got a nice little box on the blog to help people to access it.

Thanks for your patience to those of you who are members, and if you’re not, this is a good way to continue some of our discussions. If you have questions about astrology or about your chart we can talk about it here, and in the past some of the members have posted their charts so that the group can discuss it.
I’m going to start some interesting topics, so I hope to see you there!

Astrological Musings Radio: Sunday Morning 11am EST

Tune in Sunday morning at 11 am Eastern when we’ll be talking about Uranus and Mars.  Mars is the planet that governs our drive and desires, and it will be turning retrograde soon, demanding our attention and energizing us for change.  Uranus, planet of revolution and change, turns direct on Tuesday and will be re-energized itself.

We’ll be talking about the kinds of experiences we are likely to encounter as Mars travels back and forth through Leo over the next six months or so.
The placement of Mars in the chart is important in assessing various health issues and I’ll be talking some about this as well.
We also have a Full Moon coming up this week so we’ll talk about the energies that this Full Moon will bring.
I’ll be taking your calls (new callers only please!) about halfway through the show, and the call-in number is 646-478-5731.  To listen, use the player in the sidebar or visit the Radio page on my website here.  You can also listen to the show later, download it to your mp3 player, or subscribe to the podcast of the show (details and instructions on my website page).
I’ve scheduled December’s shows:
December 6:  Jupiter and Chiron, revisited.  When the planet of expansion (Jupiter) meets the planet of wounding and healing (Chiron), expect an opportunity for emotional transformation!
December 13: The importance of Uranus (no scatological jokes please!!).  Uranus turns direct this week and we’ll talk about the important role this planet plays in our evolution as individuals.
December 20:  The Christmas Show.   This will be a concept-busting show.  We’ll be talking about Astrotheology and the connections between the Christmas Story and the story of the Winter Solstice Sun, as well as the astronomical Star of Bethlehem.  We’ll also talk briefly about Mercury turning retrograde on […]

Computer Glitch Grounds All FAA Flights

I found it interesting that this occurred right after Mercury (communication) squared the progressed Sun in the US chart at 1:53 am.  The computer glitch occurred between 5:15 am and 5:30 am, and by 9 am flights were being canceled just as the Moon was moving out of Sagittarius (air flight) to Capricorn (grounded on the earth).  Once the Moon moved into Capricorn at 10 am it was conjunct Pluto in Capricorn (transformation) and squared by Saturn (restriction, challenge).
Probably just a coincidence, but interesting nonetheless!!
