July 1, 2016 Weekend Ricksterscope


5R’s – Incredible to 1R – Awful


As the weekend begins, the Moon is transiting the sign of financially conscious Taurus. However, the Moon moves into chatty and gregarious Gemini very early Friday morning. We are feeling sociable and in the mood to chat. Facebook and twitter should be quite active this weekend. Transiting Venus (in Cancer) sextiles transiting Jupiter (in Virgo) just after Noon on Friday. Our creative and peaceful mood lead to an optimistic outlook with regard to work and/or health matters. The Moon squares transiting Jupiter on Saturday morning. We could be tempted to take unnecessary risks then. Proceed accordingly. The Sun (in Cancer) trines transiting Neptune (in Pisces) early on Sunday morning. Home and family issues shine a positive light on spirituality and our imagination and dreams. We might want to take the family to see a good movie with a happy ending. The Moon enters emotional and family oriented Cancer on Sunday morning. The home and family theme continues with the New Moon in Cancer very early tomorrow morning. We are family.


Aries – You’ll likely have a lot to say this weekend, much of it quite positive. Let someone know how much you care. A more peaceful and pleasant home environment seems to make you healthier as well on Friday. Your words are colored with more emotion on Saturday, some of which are a bit cloudy. You’ll want to stay close to home on Sunday. The New Moon on Monday shines down on your home and family life. It’s all good. Next week: More time at home and then a playful spirit emerges.  RRRRR

Gemini – You’re in the spotlight much of this weekend as the Moon beams down on your sign. What would make you smile? It’s definitely time to go for it. On Friday, a home improvement or renovation you’ve made recently could make you feel more secure and comfortable. It has likely increased the value of your home as well if you own it. Your career or professional reputation could also benefit from this weekend’s influences, especially on Sunday. Things are looking up! Next week: Work on your budget and deal with finances. And, communicate. RRRRR


Cancer – You might want to lay low much of this weekend. If someone has hurt you or ignored you, know that it was not done with malicious intent. Try not to sulk or seethe.

A legal or foreign matter gets a boost on Sunday as well. You might want to go out and celebrate on Sunday evening. A good time is had by all. Next week: Go for what you want on Monday.  RRRR


Leo – Joining in with friends for some fun and lively conversations seems like the way to go for you this weekend. Somehow, a behind the scenes event could benefit you financially on Friday. And, you yourself seem to want to continue to take action to make the lives of others better in some way. Good for you! A boss or higher up is favorably inclined toward you on Saturday. Take some time on Sunday to consider your overall plans for the future. Keep an eye on the big picture. Your finances or those of a partner get a boost on Sunday. Next week: Lay low on Monday, and then you’re in the spotlight on Tuesday and Wednesday.  RRRRR

You might be able to solve a problem that you had not been able to before on Saturday. You may need to revise your goals to reflect those of a group you belong to on Sunday. You’ll make the adjustment easily if you try. Next week: Have some more fun with friends and then gets some R & R.  RRRRR


Libra – Take an overview of various situations in your life this weekend. You might like what you see more than you originally thought you would. The details seem a bit muddy though. Some of you might want to take a short trip to get away from it all. Your creativity shines through on Friday (and, Sunday as well). You might want to do some career planning on Saturday. You’ll likely have some big plans. You’re thinking about your relationships in a very positive light on Sunday,  but make sure you understand what is reality and what is fantasy or something you wish for in the future. Next week: Find your friends midweek.  RRRRR


Scorpio – After all the wonderful festivities last weekend, you might want to spend some quality time with someone very special to you. The crowds are fine, but you really enjoy close intimacy better. Your mind is clearly on serious concerns on Friday.

A home improvement project gets a boost. Next week: Isn’t it time for a vacation or holiday? RRRRR


Capricorn – This might be one of those weekends that you have to work. In your case, it doesn’t bother you at all. You’re one of the most productive signs of the zodiac.

And, you’re in a more playful mood as well. Next week: Working and playing hard - not necessarily in that order.  RRRR

Pulse






In my previous post, “The Orlando Tragedy,” we analyzed the charts for Omar Mateen (the shooter/killer), the city of Orlando, and the chart of the event (timed at 2:00 AM in Orlando the morning of the massacre). Now that I have the date that the club opened, I will analyze its astrological chart(s) as well. It was opened on July 2, 2004.


In that natal chart, we also have a YOD (eye or finger of god). There is the Sun at 11 degrees Cancer along with Saturn at 16 degrees Cancer. They are in a sextile aspect (60 degrees) to Jupiter which is at 14 degrees Virgo. Those planets are all in an inconjunct aspect (150 degrees) to Neptune which is at 15 degrees Aquarius. Neptune is at the apex of the configuration and is the critical point. Aquarius is the sign that best represents the gay community. In the mythology, Ganymed is the lover of Zeus. He overtook Hebe’s place as cupbearer to the gods. And, he was placed in the constellation as Aquarius and is therefore an indicator of homosexuality. By the way, in this chart, Ganymed is conjunct the major asteroid, Ceres. Part of the symbolism of Ceres is loss and grief. However, it also represents nurturing. Many in the LGBT community probably felt nurtured or at least very comfortable there.


In this chart, Mars (gunfire and violence) in Leo opposes Neptune in Aquarius. So, this type of an event (the shooting/massacre) is indicated or at least hinted at in the chart. This aspect can mean others things, but this event is clearly among them. Mars is also in square aspect to the asteroid Adonis. In the mythology, Adonis is the ideal man, and he had homosexual relations and thus is also an indicator of homosexuality. Mars also squares the (north) lunar node. This node indicates destiny, and this aspect seems like an ominous sign. The node is conjunct the asteroid, Sappho. Sappho is an indicator of lesbianism and is also squared by Mars. Some our lesbian sisters were among the victims.   


In that chart, Pluto (in Sagittarius) is in a square aspect to Jupiter (in Virgo). This would tend to indicate that crime, fear, and/or death could threaten this club’s good fortune. That has been the least of anyone’s worries after this event, but it is what the chart indicates. At the same time, the club had been experiencing its Jupiter return, which is usually very fortunate. I would not be surprised to find out that the club had been doing very well prior to the massacre. And, it could mean that it will come back. But, a transformation is definitely in process.

The natal chart shows a t-square in mutable signs. There is Uranus at 7 degrees Pisces, Venus at 10 degrees Gemini, and Jupiter at 14 degrees Virgo. So, this t-square is and has been activated by the transiting Saturn/Neptune square. The Saturn/Neptune square represents a challenge or a conflict between (material and structural) reality and fantasy/dreams and spirituality. Our dream of a world in which we (Uranus - LGBT community) live in peace and harmony (Venus) with joy and abundant opportunity (Jupiter) has been challenged or is in conflict now with a harsh reality (Saturn) that there are still people out there who still hate us and will take some drastic, intense, violent, and hateful actions (Mars) against us. Our battle for equality and acceptance continues.

The Orlando Tragedy






I will try to analyze the Pulse gay nightclub (in Orlando) mass shooting in the following paragraphs. This is now the biggest/largest mass killing of LGBT people in this country ever. It had been the Upstairs Lounge fire in New Orleans in June of 1973. I have waited a few days to write this, so that I could be more objective and analytical about the event. Obviously, this is a very tragic event for the LGBT community, so it has been difficult for me - just as it has been difficult for most and probably all other LGBT people. And, I lived in Orlando for years after I first came out in the late seventies and early eighties. So, this horrendous tragedy has hit close to home.


First, we need to take a look at the background influences. Since we began to experience the Sun and the other inner planets transit the sign of Gemini (in late May), we have also experienced a grand cross (or square) in the heavens. The grand cross is with Jupiter in Virgo, Saturn (and, Mars for a period of time) in Sagittarius, and Neptune in Pisces. This is a difficult configuration, and it encompasses a great deal of energy and very stressful tension. The killer (who I think we can safely say was troubled) probably felt like he had to take (strong) action. It probably did not help that the killer had Chiron (the wounded healer) in Gemini. The Sun (and Venus) were in close proximity the morning of the massacre. His progressed Moon was probably conjunct his natal Chiron, and his progressed Sun and Uranus are in opposition to his natal Chiron. He had issues and wounds that he needed to be working on. Rather than seeking the healing that he clearly needed and going within to seek what was going on within himself, it appears that he decided to blame others and take it out on them.


Omar Mateen was born on November 16, 1986 in New York City (specifically Queens). We do not know an exact time of birth on that day. He was a Scorpio, and his natal Mars in Aquarius is in a square aspect to his natal Sun. It has been widely reported to us from folks that knew him that he had anger issues. His natal Moon is likely in late Taurus in opposition to his natal Sun and in square aspect to his natal Mars. His natal Moon could possibly be in early Gemini, but the Taurus Moon makes much more sense to me. This would add to his anger issues, and his ex-wife has stated the he used to beat her. This intense, difficult, and powerful configuration (because his Sun and Moon are involved) - a t-square - clearly caused some major problems for him. Mars (the planet of violence and gun fire) was conjunct his natal Sun at the time of the event. Mateen’s progressed Mars is in Pisces, and it squares his natal Saturn and transiting Saturn. Transiting Neptune is also conjunct his progressed Mars. That is an awful lot of Mars (anger) energy. He is/was also experiencing his first Saturn return. This aspect/period is one of pruning the unnecessary from one’s life. It is a time of endings and new beginnings. And, many folks experience this aspect as difficult and, sometimes, even painful. It is a time of reaching full maturity as an adult.


The astrological chart above Orlando at the time of the massacre puts very late Pisces on the Ascendant. It has been reported that the event began at 2 AM local time. However, if it had been just two minutes later, 0 degrees Aries would have been on the Ascendant and Mars would have been the ruler in the chart and of the event. At 2 AM local time, Neptune would be its ruler. Neptune turned retrograde on Monday. Major events sometimes take place when a major outer planet is about to change directions. So, either chart could be correct. In either chart, Mars is found in the eighth house of death and fear and was retrograding in Scorpio (the sign of death, power, and intensity). And, since Neptune is prominent in this event chart, an element of confusion and mystery surrounds some of the matters concerning this event. For example, we may never get a clear idea of what Omar Mateen’s motive was in committing this horrendous act. His motives are likely confused and nebulous. He might have been gay or bisexual and had issues with his sexuality - or not. He might have had an association with ISIL and was radical and dogmatic in that regard - or not. Perhaps, it was a little bit of both. We may never know. Mr Mateen has Jupiter in Pisces and Moon in Taurus - both could indicate dogmatic religious views. He was experiencing his first Saturn return, so his Saturn is in Sagittarius - another possible indicator of strong/dogmatic religious views. Transiting Neptune in Pisces was probably challenging his view of reality and what was the truth and real and lasting. That can be very difficult for a young man.


One of the major configurations in the event chart in Orlando at the time of the tragedy is a YOD (Eye Of G-d pattern). Uranus in Aries is sextile (60 degrees) the Sun and Venus in Gemini. And, those planets are all inconjunct (150 degrees) Mars in Scorpio and the eighth house in the chart. Mars is at the apex (the critical point) in that configuration. This astrological pattern has traditionally been thought to be fated and malevolent. It doesn’t always work out that way in reality, but it is another indicator that something fated and/or very difficult might happen. And, it certainly happened that way in this case.


If Neptune is the ruler of this event chart, then Mercury would represent the victims of the shooting. Mercury is in opposition to Mars in the chart. In addition, Chiron and Neptune are in the twelfth house (of death and loss) and in Pisces in this chart.


Orlando was incorporated on July 21, 1875. Transiting Mars was in a square aspect to Saturn (business and commerce) in that chart when the attack occurred. And, Orlando’s natal Saturn is conjunct Omar Mateen’s natal Mars and squaring his natal Sun and Moon. Perhaps this is why he chose Orlando (rather than Daytona Beach, or Ft. Lauderdale, or West Palm Beach). There are no shortages of gay establishments in Florida. Orlando’s natal Moon (the people) is in Pisces and squaring Mr. Mateens’ natal Saturn. Transiting Mars is also opposite Orlando’s natal Pluto (crime and criminals). Saturn squaring Pluto in Orlando’s chart looks ominous with this transit of Mars. This is the second time transiting Mars has gone through this area. It will make one more pass. We should get additional information then.


We do not have an exact date that the Pulse bar opened its doors for business, but we do know that it opened sometime in 2004. In that year, slow moving Pluto transited between 20 and 23 degrees Sagittarius. This puts the Sun and Venus in opposition to the establishment’s natal Pluto.

So, Mars (gunfire, violence, and anger), Neptune (confusion, deception, and alcohol), Pluto (sex, fear, death, and crime), and Saturn (pain, sorrow, authoritarian/judgmental, and depression) play very influential roles in the above charts and analysis.

UPDATE:


I do have an opening date for Pulse now. It's July 2, 2004 per Wikipedia. I will analyze that chart in another post. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the victims of this awful tragedy. You can find it here. Please donate if you can.


UPDATE 2:


The Sun had activated the March 8, 2016 Solar Eclipse forming a square aspect to the eclipse point. The Sun/Moon in that chart is in the fifth house of entertainment. The event happened at a night club - Pulse.

June 17, 2016 Weekend Ricksterscope


5R’s – Incredible to 1R – Awful


The weekend begins with the Moon transiting intense and clever Scorpio. Our feeling could still be intense and raw from recent events. Venus enters home and family oriented Cancer just after Noon on Friday afternoon. We may want to make our homes more pleasant and beautiful in the coming weeks. The Moon moves into adventurous Sagittarius early in the evening on Friday. We may want to try out a new place to party and/or to have a good time. Transiting Saturn (in Sagittarius) squares transiting Neptune (in Pisces) later in the evening. We may be confused by current events and wonder how it affects us personally and how to respond appropriately. Some confuse dreams or dogmatic religious beliefs with reality. The Moon conjoins transiting Saturn and squares transiting Neptune early Saturday evening. Our emotions are activated by the Saturn/Neptune square.
