9th House Hosting Sun Plus 4

The astrological 9th House is known to be a broader version of the 3rd. The energetic relationships between planets and the influence of planetary archetypes can manifest in the 9th House and be relative to long-distance travel, higher thinking, philosophy, higher education, and publishing and literary pursuits.

Right now, Taurus is taking up the majority of space in the 9th House, and there’s definitely an abundance of energy in Taurus.

There’s a conjunction with the Sun on the 26th degree and Uranus on the 19th degree. Taurus is a sign of love and beauty, it’s ruled by Venus the Goddess of love, and it’s natural home is the 2nd House of possessions.

A conjunction between the Sun and Uranus can deliver a blast of will power to a necessary awakening. Taurus energy can be lazy, and the 9th House is definitely not a place for laziness. Uranus is jolting us to awaken because there’s much to gain (possessions) from pursuits in the 9th House. It could be a sudden interest to travel somewhere , or it could be a sudden interest to study and devote oneself to sacred or philosophical texts. Possessions need not always be something tangible, the truth perhaps, can be one of the greatest possessions of all.

On the other end of the sign, we have Jupiter 0 degree, the moon 4th degree, and Mercury on the 6th degree; that’s a three planet conjunction. Jupiter is sign of expansion and abundance, the Moon represents our subconscious mind, and Mercury represents our the part of our brain we use for everyday thinking. Given the sign and house and the conjunction between Uranus and the Sun, this three-way conjunction is showing an opportunity for mental expansion, and more importantly, the discovery of something previously unknown.

The presence of Mercury indicates communication of some kind, and this could be a conversation with someone who’s in possession of information or knowledge you need. It could also be you communicating the discoveries you’ve made during quiet study or meditation.

It’s not often we see five planets in one sign, and it wont last long. The Sun and the Moon will both enter Gemini in a few days.

Harmonious and Favorable

This morning, at approximately 10:08, the 10th House Sun (9 degrees ♉️) was within 120 degrees of the 3rd House Moon (9 degrees ♍️). In astrology, when two planets are within 120 degrees of one another, we call it a trine; it’s a harmonious and favorable aspect.

Because Taurus and Virgo are both earth signs, it’s an earth trine.

The energy right now is favorable for communications and local travel. Today is Sunday, and if you have the day off from work, it’s the perfect time for shopping, visiting family and friends, or doing something you’ve been dying to do all week but haven’t had the time. Just getting out of the house and cruising through your old neighborhood might be what you need to put things into perspective.

As far as conversations go, right now, it could be extremely beneficial to speak with someone of the opposite sex, maybe your significant other. With the Moon and Sun in trine, only good things can come out of sharing information, your feelings, or your plans about your current profession.

Someone from the opposite sex might be able to provide you with an angle or a view you were previously unaware of.

I see something more in this reading.

With the Sun and Moon in trine, there’s harmony between man and woman, night and day, and all the other things represented by both luminaries. In addition, through Virgo, the Moon brings tremendous focus and attention to detail to the table. In Taurus, the Sun, which is already blessing 10th House endeavors with will power, will now because of the Bull, have staying power and the ability to settle in, get comfortable, and make a serious run.

With the placement of the Moon in the 3rd House, and the Sun in the 10th, I think this might be the perfect time to start a home-based business. I see nothing but opportunities for success and public notoriety.

You can write, start a podcast, and create a website from the comforts of your own home, and with the Sun shining in the 10th House, public recognition is sure to follow.

Open up the lines of communication and bring the discussion to the table!

Don’t Judge a Book…

Hello Everyone!

I hope you’re doing well, and capitalizing on Pluto’s assistance with Venus and the Sun (Post: Pluto Creates Ideal Future..). Pluto is an outer planet that ultimately has the power to affect groups on a generational level, but don’t underestimate Pluto’s ability to shape the lives of individuals in the short term. Think about it like this; The way your life is now in 2022 will be completely different from what it will be like in 2050, but it’s the events and experiences that happen along the way that create that future change. You don’t wake up 30 years from and life is different. That’s why it’s important to make the the most out of each and every day!

The Moon tonight will be full and she’ll be in the astrological sign of Taurus. This a time of culmination, which began at the October 25th new moon in Scorpio. That day was awesome. If you remember, the moon was new and the sun was just beginning his transit through Scorpio.

Right now, the 4th House Moon is pulling back hard against the oppositional forces of the Sun, Mercury, and Venus in the 10th House, which is causing an issue right now between our careers and public image, and our lives at home. The Moon is trying so hard to get our attention refocused on matters that are near and dear to us and close to the heart over our pursuits for money and fame, and she’s not alone.

The amazing thing about this alignment is the Moon’s conjunction to Uranus, the planet or originality and sudden awakenings. Some how some way something at home is going to happen that forces us to stop and consider what the Moons is trying to tell us.

There’s nothing pretty about bulls, well, on the outside. They’re intimidating hairy beasts with big horns, but don’t judge a book by it’s cover. The bull is territorial and protective of what he loves. He’s warm and comforting. Astrologically, Taurus is an earth sign ruled by Venus.

Under the full moon this evening, think about the value you place on material possessions and the things that appeal to your senses. In our pursuit for money and power we sometimes lose sight of what matters most to us.

Have a great day!

The Sun’s Transit into Taurus

We have eight more days of the Sun in Aries. According to most sources supporting the Tropical Zodiac, the Sun will begin its transit through the astrological sign, Taurus on April 20th. Keep in mind, in the Tropical Zodiac, astrological signs and actual constellations don’t always align, but that’s not an issue.

So, the Sun enters Taurus on the 20th day of April. The symbol representing Taurus is the bull, and a bull can be both fierce and gentle. Aries is where the zodiac commences in the 1st house, so Taurus would be the natural 2nd house. The sun’s energies and qualities blend with that of Taurus and the combination manifests in the arena of possessions. What do you have?

Taurus is a feminine earth sign that’s fixed, and those born under this sign will be celebrating their birthdays between April 20th and May 20th.

Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and harmony, rules over Taurus, which is kind of funny because we don’t think of love and beauty when we think about bulls, but in terms of the house the bull rules, it fits quite perfectly. In the house of possessions we acquire those things we consider beautiful or that which we love because they bring a sense of harmony into our lives and our environment. And the key word there is sense because Taurus is an earth sign, and the element of earth is about sensibility where happiness is gained through flexibility.

There’s a connection between what we possess (2nd house) and beauty (Venus) and our senses (earth). Does it smell good? Does it look good? Does it sound good? Does it feel good? You get the point.

For those of us who are born when the sun was in Taurus, we have the will power and energy to fill our lives with everything pleasing. To go after our love! And that’s the struggle for the bull who is seen as a ferocious creature. To show the world that looks are deceiving, and I’m not the man or woman I appear to you to be. There’s more to me. Love and money are in focus here.

Happy Birthday Season to all you Bulls out there!


Second House

Amongst other things, I’ve always considered astrology to be an art, and the astrologer, an artist. It’s a possibility that if you had your chart interpreted by five astrologers, you might end up with five different interpretations.

And this speaks to my reasoning for considering astrology to be an art. Art is an expression of the individual; a creative uniqueness. Every astrologer, at some point, should develop their own unique style or way of interpreting the symbolism in a chart. And that’s what makes him/her an artist.

I wouldn’t consider myself to be an astrologer at this point, but rather more of a student. So, I brought material from several sources together to compare their second house descriptions. Most sources say the second house is the house of possessions, however, one said it was the house of value, esteem, and self-worth.

In a broad sense, possessions can relate to anything we own or acquire. Money is highly stressed here also because in today’s modern society, money is one of the most important possessions we can have. As they say, you can’t wear it or eat it, but it has potential and can convert to other things.

The second house might show activities or projects that can be a source of income. We own our feelings and emotions, so they’re considered to be inner possessions. What does money mean to us? Do we care about having it? Does it matter how much we have? Are we motivated to earn it, and how do we go about that?

I think it’s a good idea to consider the sign Taurus because Taurus rules the second house, and Venus because Venus rules Taurus and is home in the second house.

When I see the “bull” that represents Taurus, it reminds me of Wall Street, and Wall St. relates to the Stock Exchange and money. Venus is the planet of love and beauty. With the involvement of Venus, we can see how emotions and feelings come into play here. There is an emotional attachment to certain personal possessions.

Now, keep in mind, the second house, like the other eleven houses, represents the area in our life certain energies will play out, which is dependent upon planets and their relationships to one another.

Taurus is a fixed earth sign, and the sun makes its way through there between April 20th and May 20th.

Uranus Transit

As you know, I’ve been reading Barbara Hand Clow’s book, Chiron Rainbow Bridge Between the Inner and Outer Planets, and in the book, Clow talks about three major transits that occur during our lives; the Chiron square, the Saturn return, and the Uranus opposition to itself. I do agree with that.

These are the times when it’s crucial to put in the self-work. My Uranus opposition to itself is coming up so I’m going to break that down, and hopefully, by me doing that, it will make it easier for you to do the same if you happen to be in the same situation. Let me start by explaining what the hell this all means, because I know there are a lot of people who are interested in astrology and would like to follow it, but find it difficult to learn on their own.

My interest for astrology came out of nowhere back in 2007, but I can’t sit here and say I’ve been feverishly studying it since. It’s been more of a side thing or a hobby that I study, practice, and put to use in my spare time. The more you live the more you understand so it’s best to take astrology in stride-not to mention the system is so vast in information that it can be overwhelming and confusing. Take your time with it.

In my natal chart, Uranus is in the 5th house on the 25th degree of Scorpio. An opposition is when you have two planets directly across from one another; an opposition is an aspect of 180 degrees. The Uranus opposition occurs around the age of 42, but it could be later because Uranus goes retrograde and that slows the transit or it’s path around the zodiac. When it finally reaches opposition to itself, it will be directly across from where it was when you were born, or its position in your birth chart. For me, that’s Taurus 25 degrees just past the 11th house cusp.

Uranus in Taurus Analysis

Taurus is the sign of people who revel in the pleasures of life. It’s about security, comfort, and the warmth of relaxing in the home environment. It’s care. The flip side to this is that Taurus can be bullish, willful and stubborn, but not because they’re assholes. The issue is that Taurus is kind, devoted, and loyal-sometimes it hard to let things go.

Uranus is the planet of invention, rebellion, reformation, and unpredictable changes. It’s about discovery, independence, and improv. Uranus brings liberation, genius, science, originality, and breakthroughs.

As Uranus transits the fixed, feminine, and negatively energized earth sign that is Taurus, he will shake it up-house included. He will wake it up with sudden awareness and lighting insight so that the necessary changes can be made. Changes that ultimately promote growth and evolution.

Good luck!
