Retrograde Webcasting

The Mercury Retrograde phase is with us again and this time its an Aries affair. In celebration and as way of paying homage to Mercury Retrograde I decided to tempt fate my producing a Webcast Presentation about the very event! Perhaps you may think that I am tempting fate by such an audacious and reckless goal? Never the less I decided to appease the Gods with the aim to diffuse any disruption to my world, seeing as though Mercury is going Retrograde on my Sun Degree.



I timed a Facebook event to coincide with the publishing of my presentation. I must admit to losing several key slides and videos along the way but still, I persisted and produced the Webcast PDF and posted to my Facebook on time. There are some missing links and other banners in the presentation due to the temperamental nature of the software but you probably wouldn’t notice.  So hopefully I have appeased Mercury Retrograde experiences in my neck of the woods and gone some way to help with “his” public image.

Popularity Contest

On Monday the twenty-seventh of February at ten o’clock in the morning, members of the Australian Government caucus will decide the outcome of a popularity contest. The official time for the meeting sets up an event worthy to judge Astrologically. This official time holds more than any Astrological Event chart could show, because it’s the chart of a contest. Contest charts are similar to predictive Sports Astrology or Buy Sell charts where two teams or people engage with each other to one end. They say winning is everything however perhaps the element of “chance” is less important in tomorrow mornings chart?

`The outcome of the “popularity contest” between Julia Gillard and Kevin Rudd is much like Court case scenario where the presiding judge or jury votes for either defendant or plaintiff. The judge or reigning authority decides this matter which is a 10th house affair and ruler Saturn.  In contest charts the challenger takes the ascendant position and the incumbent party takes the descendant degree.

One can see that the first house seems to give Kevin Rudd a great deal of support with the Moon, Venus and Jupiter there. I always use the day time ruler for Aries and that Means that Rudd is represented by the Sun. The Sun sextile to Jupiter certainly looks beneficial for him. In games of chance we look at the fifth house for associations to winners, however on this occasion (according to the Ancients) we must look to Saturn’s “choice” for the winning party.


Winners are grinners they say and with Saturn in Julia’s “house” it seems that the ruling goes with her. Saturn is not in the best condition being retrograde and perhaps there will be a recount amidst a supportive Rudd camp but the event chart of this contest points to Julia retaining the head job. I have had a varied success rate in the practice of Sports Astrology, it’s a very fickle process. To counteract the terrible possibility of making mistakes when being so vocal about ones predictions, I turn to the natal charts for some confirming information.

I didn’t have to look far to see that Kevin Rudd is approaching a progressed Moon return, Neptune opposite his Pluto, Nodes conjunct his Saturn and the eventual Uranus opposite his MC. The latter Uranus transit is a very interesting one, if his rectified chart is correct. I am relying on Dymock Brose’s rectification work here. When the progressed moon comes back to its natal place, there is an emotional turning point in life where “letting go” is the theme. When Neptune opposes PLuto one goes through a precarious period of psychological adjustment. I am the same age as Kevin Rudd and experienced this Neptune aspect all of last year.



In a day and age where popularity is the most important factor in staying in government, the Australian Labor party could choose Kevin Rudd tomorrow. Kevin does have great appeal and support from the public but are politics that fickle?

Julia on the other hand is going through a great test for “control” with the Nodes square to her elevated Pluto and a tiring Saturn transit to her ruling planet Mars. No doubt Julia Gillard will be somewhat burnt out after all the recent events but I doubt whether this is enough to astrologically reflect losing her grip on the current position.

If the Kevin Rudd chart is correct then I would say he will relocate when Uranus hits the 4th house and live in another country.


On the Mark

So far there have been some interesting writings about Neptune and Pisces over the internet. I haven’t read them all, however there is one theme emerging from such Neptune posts that is hard to put ones finger on. It’s interesting to see generic descriptions used by authors in their attempts to define Neptune in Pisces. The internet is a place where collective imagery, bits and pieces merge from here and there into writings that appear to come from the “same school”. I have even seen some writers using my own terminologies in their posts too. One would expect that any descriptive Astrology terms should be similar from writer to writer, that is, if we are all using the same language.
Even without the internet and technologies, Jung discovered that across isolated cultures, myths and legends were very similar from country to country. How can this amazing phenomenon occur between cultures separated by oceans and continents with no means of intercommunication? The answer to this question lay in the fundamental nature in which humans observe and understand their unique environments. Life experiences between non connected cultures are somehow described as similar overarching truths. So if the myths describing gods and unique archetypes are replicated in some way, without plagiarism or Chinese whispers then just imagine how the internet amplifies the Collective Paradigms”?
Clutching to one’s early teachings in the cosmic languages is perhaps the only sane way to make sense of such an ethereal planet. Neptune is hard to put ones finger on and some of the best articles I have read about this mystical force also describe its journey through the previous signs. It will take a few more years to truly work out the generational meanings of Neptune in Aquarius so how do we even begin to predict a Pisces journey?                  
At a time when structure and reality serves us well, Neptune in to Pisces has a truly magnificent chance to create a spiritual and interconnecting force over many dimensions. Sounds ambiguous indeed! If we are fooled by imagery and charisma or even accidental plagiarisms as the absolute truth, how will we know that? It seems that whatever we decide as the truth, it just doesn’t matter whether that is real or not with Neptune in Pisces. If the Global Collective carries on in Pisces  –  with its “co-creative” ways (stolen from Mountain Astrology Page), the whole world would seem to sublime into new consciousness’ without really knowing.
Sounds fantastic!

The Unknowns

The Unknown areas of our lives could be classified as “mysteries waiting to be discovered” or perhaps “the unknowns” are seen as worriful elements that present dilemmas worth avoiding? In the field of Astrology and Psychology its the Unknowns that spur us on to learn more about ourselves and our interactions in life. It makes sense to bring the “Unknowns” into conscious thought so that we may live better lives. I must admit to searching for answers in both Psychology and Astrology to align myself with all the potentials, variables and mysteries.


There are particular cycles in life where personal energy levels are high however one’s directions in life are confusingly unclear. These times in life often present mysteries worth investigating for insight and clarification. Clarification and awareness can be achieved through either psychology or astrology however their paths to discovery are extraordinarily different. In the end it doesn’t really matter which path is taken if one can turn their “Unknowns into Knowns”.

The cycle of the New Moon is a time of high energy which can present periods confusion. These times are also inspirational and quite motivational for discovering the Unknowns. The New Moon presents the idea of a new cycle developing, an new idea or development in life that has not yet been born into ones consciousness. The New Moon is often called the “seed” and the  “promise of which is delivered at the full moon”. Ask anyone who has been born under a New Moon and they will tell you that discovery of self-identity through courses and an array of experiences, is an ongoing process!

The Progressed New Moon is a wonderful example of a high energy cycle that might be confusing to begin with. The progressed cycle is perhaps a very significant creative psychological cleansing where new directions manifest into life, literally. The New Moon is a seed of unknown variety and poses a mystery that beckons to be discovered.

The monthly cycles of the Moon are familiar life cycles that represent beginnings and endings. The New Moon represents a “refreshing” of the routines which can leave questions about how incidental life situations might unfold. Therefore, on the day of New Moons like today, there are high energy patterns and unknowns which affect us in subtle ways.

The New Moons brings hope and discovery through a seed planted and the idea of the “Unknown becoming Known”!


Escapism and Disguise

Since the beginning of time we human beings have relished the exploration of disguise by changing ones appearance into different forms. Disguising ones appearance contains the idea of fantasy and escapism from a self reality that may have become too mundane but is this behaviour as simple as it seems? Wearing a simple mask hides ones eyes but behind that, the minds owner experiences a kind of euphoria via a disconnection of an all too well-known persona. Escapism is a known trait born in the Astrological Sign of Pisces so it might pay to investigate the mythology of the twin fishes to find out more.


The story of Pisces indicates that disguising ones form and appearance is primarily to escape a terrible earthly monster called Typhoeus.

“The horrible earth-born giant Typhoeus suddenly appeared one day, startling all the gods into taking on different forms to flee. Jupiter, for instance, transformed himself into a ram; Mercury became an ibis; Apollo took on the shape of a crow; Diana hid herself as a cat; and Bacchus disguised himself as a goat. Venus and her son Cupid were bathing on the banks of the Euphrates River that day, and took on the shapes of a pair of fish to escape danger. Minerva later immortalized the event by placing the figures of two fish amongst the stars.

The zodiacal constellation Pisces represents two fish, tied together with a cord. The constellation is neither particularly bright nor easy to find, but it lies near Pegasus.” (By Cathy Bell)

Venus and her son Cupid are at the centre of this fishy tale and as we all know, the mythologies surrounding these two are primarily concerned with love and enjoyment. The sign of Pisces is a mutable environment where adaptability and change are fundamental traits. If many Gods changed into different forms when the monster suddenly appeared, there is a self-preservation element to this story with a goal to live another day.

If the of the story of Pisces embodies two pleasure orientated archetypes such as Venus and Cupid, one of the primary roles described in the constellation of Pisces is a transitional one, with a theme for pleasure and enjoyment. Escaping the reality of such earthly monsters in the story of Pisces conjures up a myriad of more mortal and human behaviours when we consider the monotony and harsher realities of life, in the monster Typhoeus.


In my view the sign of Pisces contains the idea of an older soul that is not only wise and experienced but less ego driven in the same way as other signs. The constellation of Pisces is the last sign in the Zodiac which means that Pisces has “lived through” all the experiences of other signs, starting with Aries. There is a melancholic sense for the Pisces archetype and less desire to integrate into specific roles other Signs of the Zodiac identify with. So at the last outpost and final transitional environment, the horoscopic wheel turns to fantasy and escapism with a primary motivation to disguise the reality of ones identity!

We can’t really stop there when considering the Pisces constellation and the idea of manufacturing different realities for the purpose of escapism. The imagery of the myth is symbolised as two fishes tied together with string and swimming in opposite directions. Perhaps a duality of directions here represents the inner conflict supporting a perpetual and incomplete gestalt in life. No wonder the Piscean kind turn to “disguise” and attempt to escape reality through drugs and alcohol? We could list numerous positive and negative behaviours here relating to escapism. Even the simple application of applying perfume and latherings of lotions, disguise and re fantasize ones identity in the “real world”.


` The domino effect of the “yes we can” message

The other main component of the mythology is the string that ties the fish together like an eternal reliance on the “other”. In this day and age the Piscean idea of the relationship between “We” instead of “I” is perhaps an ultimate wisdom that hopefully intoxicates a collective form into change? The hidden and less egotistical ideals of Piscean forms may have their negative manifestations and co dependencies, however there is an underlying and creative message ringing out in the unconscious collective here. The fact is we are dependent on many things and we will always need other people or external leanings to survive those fearful and symbolic “monsters” of life.

The age of individualism and separationalism of the 1960’s was a necessary “therapy” to establish a global collective identity of which similarly permeated our personal need to evolve. Now that Neptune has entered Pisces the complexities of our unconscious workings will require different kinds of global analysis and transformations? Like some forms of psychoanalysis we need another person and trusting unconditional relationships to access intersubjective spaces for awareness. The sign of Pisces contains such rich and supportive environments for explorations into the unknowns. If it’s through these kinds of “clinical” escapisms that holds a more complete gestalt then the two fish tied by string is certainly an apt symbol for the sign of Pisces.

The idea of fantasy and creative disguise can behold a variety of literal and psychological outcomes. Through the watery journey of the sign of Pisces, we can access realms never before experienced and dangerously enough, be tied to the destructive tendencies of escapism.
