From the Desk of Leslie Marlar, July ’15
For those of you who are local, S.T.A.R. Guild Astrology study group meets Tuesday, July 28th at the main library in Cocoa at 308 Forrest ave. at 6 pm.
We will look at the horoscopes of authors Patricia Cornwell, Steven King, E.L. James, and J. K. Rowling. Bring your own chart as always.
This past month, the shooting in South Carolina and the events of Caitlyn Jenner were in the news.
When Dylann Roof entered the Church in Charleston, 24 Sagittarius, the sign of churches was rising. This area defines the identity of the moment. Mars and the Sun were in Gemini in the open enemy, 7th house in close opposition to the Ascendant. The chart clearly shows the presence of danger in the church.
A time of 9:05 pm is estimated as the time the shooting started. The Ascendant was at the 6th degree of Capricorn moving toward an opposition of Pluto in Capricorn and the Moon in Cancer at the 15th degree. This makes sense in that Roof has a Capricorn Moon. He may have needed the stimulation of the Capricorn Ascendant to start shooting. (The Newtown Ct. shooting has Pluto, the Moon, Mars, and the Ascendant in Capricorn.)
We have no birth time on Roof at this time. He is an Aries Sun with a Capricorn Moon. This means that the Uranus Pluto square in Aries and Capricorn has been upon him. His Mercury is very close to Mars and in the same sign with Saturn, Pisces. His Capricorn Moon is in the same sign with Neptune and Uranus showing intelligence and also potential darkness and strangeness of mind. (Adam Lanza also has Uranus, Neptune, and the Moon in Capricorn. His Mars is also in Pisces, and he has Mercury and Venus in Aries.)
Someday, when we are further into the Aquarian Age, parents and teachers will know their childrens’ charts and be able to better guide them in the use of the planetary energies that are shown in their horoscopes.
One of our guild members at our study group suggested that we look at the chart of Charleston to see if there were connections between the city and Roof’s chart. Charleston’s Mars is at 13 Aries as is Roof’s Sun. Mars is the violent planet.
We also looked at Caitlyn Jenner. Bruce was born with the sexual sign, Scorpio rising with the Sun very close to the Ascendant. His Moon is in Aquarius near the Nadir. We have the Sun, a masculine body, in the feminine sign, Scorpio and the Moon, a feminine body, in the masculine sign, Aquarius. These two bodies are square, showing conflict between the two most important bodies in any chart. The Ascendant is early life and the Nadir is late life. He came in as a man and she will go out as a woman.
In late June the Supremes made two important rulings. Venus with Jupiter, the planet of judges, made their judgments Venus-like, popular, generous, and lenient. Both rulings came under the Moon in the justice sign, Libra. This Libra moon was a First Quarter Moon aspecting Mars. This describes the violence that happened at this time, the killling of the found convict and 3 ISIS attacks. The Ascendant for the gay marriage ruling was in Leo with Venus and Jupiter.
The two beautiful and good planets, Venus and Jupiter, which are and have been together in the sky now also represent our awareness of the lovely people of Charleston.
Full Moon on the 1st and 2nd of July in Capricorn contrasts private and public life. Full Moon in Aquarius later on the 30th and 31st focuses on power. New Moon in Cancer on the 14th and 15th gives us a new start in domestic and emotional matters.
Mars connecting with the Uranus Pluto square at mid-month is best dealt with by maintaining a positive state of mind along with positive aciton.
Fairly good days this month are: 6, am 9, 13, 20, 26, 27, and am 28.
