Chiron Neptune

News of Chiron from the Expo

Sorry, there will be no Astrological Musings Radio show today because I’m at the Body, Mind Spirit Expo in Raleigh this weekend.  Rich and I do these two shows a year where we showcase beautiful crystals and mineral specimens and some jewelry, and I do astrology and tarot readings.  They are a lot of fun and a great opportunity to meet some fabulous people.

Next week we’ll be talking about the big planetary events coming up in September.  Of course I’ll be writing more about those events as well so watch for that over the next week or so.  Tomorrow I’ll be writing the September Skywatch article (visit my website for your free subscription!) so I’ll repost something interesting for you, and then Tuesday I’ll get back to regular blogging.

It’s been interesting talking to other practitioners about what their clients are going through.  Everyone has the same report:  Clients are more emotional than usual.  I had several readings yesterday with people who couldn’t keep from crying – their emotions were so close to the surface that they could no longer hold them back.  This is the effect of the Chiron/Neptune conjunction – the soul (Neptune) is releasing the pain of our old wounds (Chiron) so that healing and real transformation can bring us back to an ecstatic connection with our true self.

Sometimes when clients are going through a Chiron cycle they will want me to help them “get rid of all of this pain.”  Sometimes the emotional pain is instead transmitted into physical pain.  But the purpose of a Chironic event is not to get rid of the pain, but to walk through the fire of the pain and come out on the other side.  That painful sensitivity, however it manifests, is coming from painful memories that […]

The Solar Eclipse unmasks the fact that racism is alive and well

The major force of the eclipse is now behind us, although its influence will linger for the next few days.  Eclipses are often associated with the “unmasking” of something that has been hidden – in the solar eclipse, the power of the lunar unconscious force unmasks that which has been hidden from the conscious mind.

So here we have the revelation that Professor Henry Louis Gates, arrested last Thursday (July 16) was arrested for trying to open the front door of his own home in Cambridge Massachusetts after a passer-by called the police to report a break-in. There is some debate over whether Dr. Gates provided identification when asked, but I know from personal experience with friends how sensitive these things can be, and I can just imagine how Dr. Gates would feel, returning from a long trip to China and probably exhausted, being confronted on his own front porch and asked for identification.

The eclipse fell about five degrees from the 8th house Mercury (communication) in the US chart, provoking discussion and inquiry (Mercury) about the hidden motives and power imbalances (8th house)  that are still alive in the US.  I sometimes think that it’s the African Americans who hold the cards now – we have a black president, everyone wants to be hip and talk like black people, and our most powerful cultural leaders are black.  But evidently there are still pockets of prejudice left to be cleansed.

The Chiron/Neptune conjunction (together with Jupiter) occurred within a degree from the Moon in the US chart.  The Moon in a national chart represents the heart of the people, and the Chiron/Neptune conjunction is serving to open up old wounds (Chiron) to be healed so that […]

Conspiracy Corner: Swine flu hysteria continues

The swine flu began as a mysterious strain of flu, a mixture of swine, bird and human flu strains, just as Chiron and Neptune were moving closer towards their exact conjunction.  At the time I wrote of my suspicion over the sudden appearance of this hybrid strain of flu. After all, it wasn’t long ago that scientists recreated the Spanish flu virus that killed an estimated 50 million people back in 1918.

Flu epidemics provide billions of dollars of income for pharmaceutical companies and allow governments to step in and exercise control over a panicked citizenry.  And sure enough, it appears that the British government plans to immunize the entire British population:

The UK government has ordered enough vaccine to cover the entire population. GPs are being told to prepare for a nationwide vaccination campaign.

Peter Holden, the British Medical Association’s lead negotiator on swine flu, said GPs’ surgeries were ready for one of the biggest vaccination campaigns in almost 50 years.

What a bonanza for the entire medical establishment in Britain. France has ordered 90 million doses, Germany 50 million, and the US has ordered almost $900 million worth of vaccine product from two pharmaceutical companies.

Evidently I’m not completely crazy.  My research uncovered this lost news story from back in February which reported that Baxter International “unintentionally” contaminated vaccine samples with Bird Flu virus.  The contaminated vaccines were sent to subcontractors in several European countries.  “Coincidentally,” Baxter International began working with the World Health Organization to develop a vaccine against the Swine Flu in April.

Investors are salivating over the potential for stock gains of the companies involved.

Most alarming of all, the World Health Organization evidently has the authority to impose regulations regarding travel and vaccinations in the 194 countries who are signatories to its charter.  Even if you dismiss […]

Song for Saturn in Virgo

In case the Chiron/Neptune conjunction is getting you down, here is some comic relief from Al Yankovic complete with lyrics.  I found this on the Astrology Weekly forum, and the poster there included the lyrics.  Some of the most accurate Saturn in Virgo lyrics include these pungent lines:

Think you’re really righteous? Think you’re pure in heart?

Well, I know I’m a million times as humble as thou art.

This is one of Al’s all-time classics. Unfortunately it can’t be embedded, so watch it here.

Words of wisdom from Barbara Hand Clow

Barbara Hand Clow was one of the first astrologers to identify the wounding and healing process of Chiron that I work with in my own practice, and I owe her and her excellent work a great deal.  She is doing some groundbreaking work now that some may find a bit out there, but I suspect in a few years we’ll see that she was right all along, just as she was 30 years ago.

Here’s an excerpt from something she wrote about the Chiron/Neptune conjunction that we’re in the middle of right now.  You can read more about it on her site.

We astrologers talk on and on about Neptune as a guide for connecting with spirit worlds. It has become a cliché, and most people just don’t think about what that means. So, I will attempt to find other words to describe Neptune’s influence. Most of the time, we are separated out from all-that-is, the timeless energy fields of our cosmic bodies. We are caught in time and place, and then once in awhile we experience a breakthrough into all-that-is-a peak experience. When this happens, the boundaries around our separated selves melt, and we experience “oneness” or enlightenment. Children frequently exist in oneness-especially infants-but then painful experiences cause them to close up and separate from divine consciousness. While we are alive, Chiron’s transits-usually by conjunction, square, and opposition-erode the boundaries of the separated self by means of piercing stabs into deep inner wounds. When these wounds occurred in this life or past lives, we erected boundaries around the wounds, yet the very energy that could reconnect us with spirit-Neptune-is locked out. So, Chiron and Neptune working together can erode these boundaries that block cosmic fusion. In other words, accessing pain sometimes opens spiritual connection, and this is […]
