Is Elon Musk the harbinger of the Aquarian Age?

Elon Musk is in the news again, this time for attempting a hostile takeover of Twitter.  He is such a fascinating character – clearly so brilliant, but also kind of a mad genius and a bit nutty. Just the type I like to profile. 😃

The astrology of Elon Musk.

Unfortunately we don’t have a birth time for Musk (there is a birth time on Astrotheme but it comes from an unverified source in India), but even without it we can see some very interesting things (noon chart shown with Sun on the ascendant).  Musk was born under a conjunction of the Sun and Mercury in Cancer, a sign of feeling and emotion, and this conjunction is tightly squared by both Chiron and Uranus. As I have noted before, Sun/Mercury conjunction individuals tend to be of great intelligence, and when Mercury is ahead of the Sun as it is here there can be a tendency, literally, of the mind getting ahead of the Self. The fact that Uranus, planet of innovation and radical change, is locked in a strong square aspect to the Sun and Mercury enhances the ability to think outside the box as well as inspire somewhat impulsive and radical behavior even when the Sun and Mercury are in Cancer which tends to seek greater security and a sense of safety.

The emotionality of the Sun and Mercury in Cancer is easily activated due to a strong square from Chiron to the Sun and Mercury. Chiron is in Aries, suggesting that the wound (Chiron) is to the evolution of the Self (Aries) and in fact Chiron is the only planet in a fire sign in this chart other than Neptune which is a generational outer planet. When a chart lacks a certain element, the personality traits […]

Astrological update for the week of December 6, 2021:

This week we really don’t have any major planetary events of any note so it’s a good time to re-center and find your balance going into the holidays.  A little later in the month we have the final-ish phase of the square from Saturn to Uranus, the cycle which has brought so much social crisis, but the two will still be within range of a square aspect throughout 2022 especially in the late summer and early fall so we can’t relax quite yet.  Especially in the United States where we are just going into the US Pluto return.

But that’s another story, and this week with Venus beginning to slow down in preparation for her retrograde turn on December 19th we can take some time to relax and re-discover ways to find pleasure and enjoyment. Under Venus retrograde, relationships can be repaired and re-discovered, and while it’s true that these are not the best times to begin new relationships of any kind. a relationship begun under a retrograde Venus can help us to learn more about ourselves.

In the meantime though, Venus and Pluto are close to a conjunction throughout the week, and this can create some rough waters for relationships and perhaps financial difficulties as Venus represents everything that we value and not just people.  Avoidance of difficulty isn’t always helpful, and if you value personal transformation this is the week to enhance and deepen the bonds of all kinds of liaisons from romantic, to business, to children.

And now, the week ahead. Dates and times are for the Eastern time zone, please adjust for your locality. 

Monday December 6.  Mars forms a sextile to Pluto very early in the morning and this aspect (building since Saturday and Sunday) will remain throughout the […]

1.23.21 A day of creative inspiration and grounded centering

art by Holly Sierra

Huzzah!!  With the end of the square from Mars (action and aggression)  to Jupiter (expansion and acceleration), the intense cycle of Mars aspecting Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus over the past few weeks is at an end.  I don’t know about you, but I intend to take a nap. 😀

Today we have a beautiful sextile from Venus (beauty and love) to Neptune (creativity and spirituality) which will help us to slip a little more easily out of the constraints of modern life and bring a little magic into our world.  The Aquarius Sun is illuminating ideas of change and new paradigms, and conjoins Saturn to help us to ground and to bring in a little more practicality and organization.  And to top it off, the Gemini Moon facilitates conversation as it harmonizes with all of the Aquarius planets as well as Chiron to help everything make sense.

1.22.21. Getting ready for Mars square Jupiter

art by Bob Doucette

Since Mars has been in Taurus it’s been setting off a lot of fireworks, beginning with a challenging square to Saturn in Aquarius on January 13th.  Mars is in Taurus now where it tends to resist behavior that is too radical, but if we try to stifle our resistance it may blow up like a bull (Taurus) in a china shop.  Mars aligned with Uranus on the 20th in a conjunction in Taurus which thankfully did not bring the kinds of explosions many of us feared.  Mars activity continues, though – still in range of the conjunction to Uranus it will form a square to Jupiter at 2:48 am EST on the 23rd (the energy is still building, and the potency of the Mars fire is still very much with us.

Mars square Jupiter can enhance confidence but it can also raise tempers and create conflicts.   Channeling this energy into a project that requires faith and confidence is a helpful way to manage this Mars/Jupiter combination.  In our personal lives it could have the effect of shaking us out of anywhere we have felt stuck and unable to move forward with a dream or idea of change.  In Taurus, Mars can make it more difficult to actually take action to break us out of old patterns, but the square to Jupiter can help to break up stuck energy and enhance our higher vision which is the first step towards growth. ❤️

Astrological update for the week of January 18, 2021: Inauguration astrology, a lot of Mars, and heads up for Mercury retrograde

Today’s video is not political! And I’m very relieved that the weekend did not turn out to be the chaotic disruption that was promised after January 6th so I’m hopeful for a smooth presidential transition this week after the inauguration.  However, I do spend a few minutes talking about the chart for the inauguration, as well as some thoughts for how to manage these challenging times. Mercury will turn retrograde on January 30th so we might as well start to prepare now as the speed of Mercury begins to slow down.  Transcript follows the promo material.

Transcript (transcribed by electronic monsters and roughly edited by me, please forgive errors)

Hey everybody, it’s Lynn Hayes here. Welcome back to another video. And if you’re new here, a special welcome to you as well, especially to my Facebook friends who joined me this week, there was a big group of them that all signed up. So I really appreciate your being here and look forward to sharing more videos with you.

We’re living in very interesting times right now. And just to recap a little bit last year, we had a lot of compression and restriction under a big influence of Capricorn. This year, we are moving into Aquarius and also a square from Saturn to Uranus, Saturn, the planet of restriction Uranus being the planet of radical change, radical revolution, and Jupiter, the planet of freedom is also tied in there. It’s not surprising then that there’s a fair […]
