Saturn Conjunct Pluto

The astrology of Clarence Thomas

When I have a session with a new client, I like the astrology to speak for itself. I never Google the client, or look at their website when they send me a link. Rather than try to fit the astrology into my idea of who the person is, I would rather see what the astrology says since my view may be flawed. That process is more difficult when doing a profile for a public person. We see their actions, and we have an opinion about them. And while I try to remain neutral in these profiles my bias will sometimes leak into the astrological information. This post is about Clarence Thomas as a human being and is not meant to be an endorsement of his political influence.

Clarence Thomas has a fascinating biography. He was born into a poor Gullah community (descendants of slaves who have lived relatively intact in the sea communities of Georgia and South Carolina since post-slavery times) and went on to attend Yale law school and sit on the highest court of the land.

(Thanks as always to Astro.com for hunting down accurate birth information.) Thomas was born with the Sun in Cancer, the sign of deep feelings and love of family. Cancerians tend to have a strong sense of history and connection to community. Thomas’s Sun conjoins Mercury, planet of the mind, which always suggests an individual of high intelligence; however, when the planet of the mind is in the sign of feelings, there is an emotionality in thought and communication that is not always helpful. The Sun/Mercury pairing includes the addition of Venus (relating) – a Cancerian stellium of deep sentimentality and like the crab it symbolizes, a rough outer shell which hides a well of emotion and vulnerability.

A look ahead to April’s Jupiter/Neptune conjunction

art by Peter Rodulfo

Being an astrologer is a bit like being a meteorologist. You can observe the trends, but you can’t predict the details, at least not with reliable accuracy.

The past few years have been interesting to say the least.  We had the conjunction of Saturn (hardship) and Pluto (death and regeneration) in 2020, which astrologers warned could bring financial and other hardships. With Neptune in Pisces, sign of its modern rulership and associated with viruses, there was an indication of a mysterious illness. But the kind of pandemic of the wide-ranging proportions which we have experienced came as a surprise to all but the most tuned-in virologists.

In 2021 we had the challenging square from Saturn to Uranus, planet of radical change and liberation. Civil unrest, rebellion against Covid control measures…all of this was relatively predictable.

In 2022 we have a conjunction from Jupiter to Neptune on April 12.  Conjunctions from Jupiter to Neptune occur about every twelve years, but what makes this one relatively unique is that Jupiter and Neptune are connected through their co-rulership of Pisces. Jupiter is the traditional ruler of Pisces (with Neptune being the modern ruler), and Jupiter and Neptune share an expansive view of the world, and a desire to bring true meaning into our lives.  However, Jupiter’s focus is more on the expansion of the Self through a pursuit of meaning and Truth where the Neptunian desire to submerge the Self requires an annihilation of individuality for the sake of Universal consciousness and creative inspiration.  It is here where trouble can sometimes occur.

Pisces is represented by two fish swimming in opposite directions, tied by a cord. The cord is the only thing keeping the fish from separating entirely […]

Sunday inspiration: The opportunity in adversity

As you may know, last year a stellium of planets in Capricorn including Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto induced a period of compression and restriction from the Coronavirus.  This year we are in an Aquarian time of awakening and new ideas, so I thought this piece from Eckhart Tolle was a very appropriate way to inspire the transition from the adversity of Saturn and Pluto to the logic and “out of the box” thinking of Aquarius.  For more writings of Eckhart Tolle, visit his website here.


Life unfolds between the polarities of order and chaos…

It is important at this time to recognize these two fundamental opposites, without which the world could not even be. Another word for disorder is “adversity.” When it becomes more extreme, we might call it “chaos.”

We would prefer, of course, to have order in our lives, which means to have things going well. We would like relative harmony in our lives. Yet, that very often is marred by the eruption of some form of disorder. And, usually, we resent that—we get angry, or despondent, or sad.

Disorder comes in many, many forms, big and small. When disorder comes it usually creates a kind of havoc in our lives, accompanied by strong underlying beliefs. “There’s something very wrong, this should not be happening, maybe God is against me,” and so on. Again, we need to understand that disorder, or adversity, is inevitable and is an essential part of a higher order.

From a higher perspective, a higher level, the existence of order and disorder, or order and chaos, is a necessary part of the evolution of life.

Many people have found that they experience a deepening, or a deeper sense of self or beingness, immediately […]

Monday astro update for the week of September 28, 2020 including the Aries Full Moon

Here’s your regular weekly update, complete with a bit more about the Aries Full Moon (but be sure to check out my complete post on this lunation which I feel will be important in helping us integrate the planetary intensity of the moment).  We also have both Saturn and Pluto turning direct for more big energy shifts, and Venus moving from Leo into Virgo.  I’ll also be weaving in the details of lunar influences so that you can put the whole picture together for your planning.  Transcription is below, but as I always I encourage you to watch the video to get the more complete picture as I feel that a lot is lost in the translation!  Have a great week everyone.

Hey everybody, welcome back to my channel. If you’re new here, my name is Lynn Hayes. And every week I give you all the astrological information that you need to have a great week. In today’s video, we’re going to be talking about the Aries Full Moon, Saturn and Pluto changing direction. And we’re going to be talking about Venus moving from Leo into Virgo. So without further ado, let’s get started.

This video is covering the period between September 28 and October 5, and on September 29 Saturn is going to be turning direct. So just to recap, if you’ve been watching these videos you’ll know that we’ve had a lot of retrograde planets all through the summer, and now the number of retrogrades is beginning to diminish. So with Saturn, which has been retrograde all summer, turning direct, meaning it will […]

Musings on the Coronavirus

Over the years I have studied a great deal of correlations between historical events and the associated planetary configurations.  Often there are clear connections that are easily described.  The conjunction of Uranus (radical change) to Pluto (destruction and regeneration) in the mid to late 1960s is one example – it’s easy to see how this planetary combination correlated with the dramatic social upheavals during that decade.  Same thing with the square aspect between Uranus and Pluto between 2010 and 2017.

To prepare for this article I wanted to see what other astrologers said about the Coronavirus.  Several astrologers say “this is definitely the result of Uranus in Taurus,” creating sudden changes (Uranus) in the stability of our world (Taurus).  One says “it’s the lunar nodes shifting into Gemini/Sagittarius” (by the way, this doesn’t happen until May 2020).  One says it’s because Mars was in Scorpio when the first case was announced, and Mars rules death in traditional astrology and is in its domicile where it is most powerful.  Frankly, none of these explanations really make sense to me.

For the past year I and many other astrologers have been predicting some sort of crisis to occur when Saturn and Pluto collided in January.  Neptune has been in its own sign of Pisces since 2012, where it is associated with flooding, addiction, conspiracy theories, and mysterious illnesses with no apparent cause or cure.  We are certainly seeing this with the Coronavirus.  Where did it originate? How is it transmitted? There is no known answer to these questions – all very Neptunian.  At the same time, Saturn and Pluto converged in mid-January of this year, on the exact date that the first death from the mysterious new virus was announced (the illness began to appear in Wuhan in December […]
