Virgo By Hiroko Sakai

The Volatile Virgin
and Human Potential
Sept 16-Oct 30

You can't discuss Virgo without bringing up the question of cusps. Cusps are the divisions in the 360 degree circle of the Zodiac that separate the constellations from one another. 12-sign astrology divides the Zodiac into 12, equal 30-degree segments, one for each constellation. However, this was done for convenience, not accuracy. You can't cut the Zodiac up like a pizza, since each portion is actually a different size. The constellations vary in width and scope, and each of them has a unique share of the Zodiac. The degrees of every sign is determined by the time it takes the Sun to travel from one end of the constellation to the other, from one cusp to the next cusp. Astronomers, NASA and 13-sign astrology all base their calculations on the 13-sign Zodiacal wheel and the irregular cusps that accurately plot the Sun's movements across each sign. Virgo gets the largest share of the Zodiac, with 46 degrees, Scorpio, the smallest with 7 degrees, and the rest of the signs all have their own characteristic share of the circle. This means that Virgo gets 45 days of the year to proliferate, and this makes for more Virgos in the world than any other sign.

This is why Virgo is the most versatile and active sign, you find them everywhere, doing everything. Virgo is the sign of humanity, and they dominate Earth's population by sheer numbers. Virgo has many faces, they represent the endless variations of the world's people, and their connection with the land. They serve the needs of others, they can embody the best nuances of human aspirations and the renewal of the spirit. They are known as the "virgins" of the Zodiac because they are able to remake themselves into a fresh incarnation of themselves. There's an endless permutation of variation. They are selfless workers and faithful partners. They measure and evaluate their lives with great attention to detail, and are fearless in their desire to change and improve themselves and influence the lives of others. Skillful, crafty, practical and observant, they are the capable and connected. They look out at the world with an objective serenity, innate intelligence and a calming rational gaze. But that's what we see. Behind their gentle exterior, there's a hint of fire in their eyes.

Uranus in Aries
Freedom's Just Another Word for Nothing Left to Lose

image by clipartxtras

Uranus means revolution, the sudden outburst of new ideas wiping out traditional restrictions and outmoded systems. The power of Uranus is the lightning bolt of inspiration, revelation and the unstoppable spread of a human demand for freedom. The question is, freedom for whom? The freedom for a few is not comparable with the freedom for the many. Is individual freedom really freedom? Or it it the height of selfishness? There is no real freedom until we are all free. This is at the the core of democracy. MORE

Retrograde Roundup

Sometimes you just have to take it slow

So what can you say about a transit report that has five retrograde planets—soon to be six? Watch out? Slow down? Stand in place? Be humble? Don’t take anything for granted? Check your oil? Take your vitamins? It's more than a cautionary advice; it's a chance to look back and see the problem. As Tchiya Amet reminds us, "Rx" is not only the astrological symbol of retrograde, but also, not coincidentally, the modern symbol of medicine and healing.

This period, which will run through the end of the year, give or take a planet or two, will illustrate exactly how connected we are to the ambient forces of the Universe. It's a pause, a breather, a warning, a break in the action. We are supposed to take stock of the situation and wait until a better moment to proceed, and correct what is wrong. If our lives are like walking a tightrope, then stopping and regaining our composure in this retrograde is a better strategy than pushing forward when we are off balance.

Discovering Chiron

By Natalie Miller

Chiron is an comet that was discovered on November 1st, 1977 in Pasadena, CA.  Comets are believed to incite great changes on the land and perhaps in individuals as they pass our sky.  Traditionally, these changes were a process of purification.  For example, if the emperor was corrupt, he would fall to his death as the comet passed.  Ancient people did not take the omen of the comet lightly, and they were greatly feared.

Most modern astrologers believe that where Chiron is in one’s natal chart is where our childhood wounds present themselves.  Our deepest pain oftentimes comes from our childhood due to the vulnerability childhood has over our impressions of the world and through traumatic experiences that happened in or out of our family circle.  MORE

The Moon in the 13 Signs

photo by Todd Diemer

By Natalie Miller
To really understand the Moon in astrology one needs to be able to resurrect a sleeping sense of primordial duality.  To me the Moon stands for energy itself.  For example, there are a lot of ingredients that go into making a cake, not the least of which is the heat required to transform it.  This is what the Moon does in astrology, it gets us from point A to point B, it heats us up.  The sign your natal Moon is in will color how your cake rises… in a conventional oven, a big factory, an earthen stove…

Trump is a Taurus with his opposing Moon in Ophiuchus.

August is a key month for his troubles to beset him; he's likely to suffer public shaming and legal problems, and Sept. and Oct. will be even worse. According to his transits starting in the Spring of 2019, his resignation is a real possibility. MORE

Astrology: more than the signs

For thousands of years, astrology has been lurking in the shadows of our consciousness. Shrouded in mystery and chaos, the study of astrology has thus far only hinted at its true gift to humanity. MORE

A lot of what you learned about your Moon from mainstream astrology is false or misleading. The 12-sign Zodiac doesn't represent the truth. A 13 sign astrology horoscope reveals the facts about your real birth planets and luminaries by finding the right sign and degree. 13-sign astrology also includes the sign Ophiuchus, the goddess of women's power and accomplishments. The 12-sign, tropical view of the horoscope deficient and outdated.

Ophiuchus and her origins

Another vital placement in the horoscope is the The Black Moon and Lilith, which are linked to the dark, hidden extreme in Lunar polarity, the opposite of the lighted moon, our romantic archetype. Again, traditional astrology rarely acknowledges this mysterious influence, and gets the sign wrong.

Ophiuchus and Ether

Yin and Yang

Men are scared of women's power because she stands in the way of their determination to exploit and usurp nature and to deny their own mortality. Women's bodies are the inherent acceptance of natural law, as in their covenant with birth and death. In this dispensation of consciousness, what's good for women is bad for men. Where would men get their slaves and concubines if Ophiuchus was the guide for our imaginations and incantations? Men therefore regard Ophiuchus as a poisonous infection; yet women regard her with reverence and love. Ophiuchus can't and won't alter herself to suit anyone. When this celestial goddess changes form, it's only in the way men and women see her differently, as an aspect of her polarity and a reaction to which of us is in control. Ophiuchus isn't two-faced; it's which face we see when we gaze at her constellation. Men instinctively see her as Medusa, the monster. Women see her as a healer and an advocate. MORE

13 Sign Tarot by Maji

EGO IS THE DEVIL - When one begins to ascend, the devil arises. The devil can come in many forms, fear, hate, doubt, envy, stress, jealousy, worry, possessiveness, manipulation, anxiety, temptation, and sometimes other people. But these things and people are NOT the devil. They are just the reflection and the precursor that allows the devil inside of ourselves to appear. Asking us, right before we ascend into heaven “are you sure?” One Hand pointed up, the other hand pointed down, Saturn (SATAN) Allows us to confront these illusions that arise within ourselves and ascend OR repeat the entire cycle over again. And it will continue to repeat until we take responsibility and have learned the lesson presented. The objective of the devil is to keep us pinned down, it doesn’t want to learn and evolve, it wants to destroy, trap, and hold us in our lower self which contains fear, hate, doubt, envy, stress, jealousy, worry, possessiveness, manipulation, anxiety and temptation. Until these negative entities are dealt with we will never enter the higher self where we have access to love, freedom and compassion. We must ask ourselves, what is keeping us down and what is keeping us from enjoying and progressing in life? What idea/illusion have we bought into that has kept us in debt/bondage?

The Nation of Women

"Medusa" By Hiroko Sakai

Thousands of years ago women dominated human society. They were the clan leaders, hunters, astrologers, warriors and healers. We can only speculate about such antiquity because much of it lies beyond what is actually known or academically supported. However, astrology gives us a clue, since many original Zodiacal archetypes are female and were changed to men or animals by the Greeks and Romans. Ophiuchus, Aries, Leo and Taurus were all originally imagined as female symbols, only to be transmogrified much later into male stereotypes by male astrologers.

The dates shown are approximate. Find out the exact placement your Chiron here

You may also have the ability to tap into universal or spiritual creative ideas. You may teach in a way that benefits humanity.

CHIRON IN CANCER (1992-1993)

You may feel unsure of yourself in your own family. This may stem from a painful relationship with your father, or perhaps another painful experience in your home. You will intuitively know how to care for your family members and loved ones for their highest good.

CHIRON IN LEO (1994-1996)

You are afraid of having fun and being creative. You may have been prevented from expressing yourself as a young child, and have difficulty overcoming your feelings of inadequacy.

Walter Berg
Greatest Living Astrologer

Our 13-sign astrology group is extremely honored and proud to present Walter Berg to our readers. Walter single-handedly created modern 13 sign astrology from years of dogged observation and hand-calculation in the early 1970s. Using astronomical data, he corrected and redefined the over-simplified astrological wheel used by 12-sign astrologers to a 13 sign and 13 house horoscope that updates astrology into the space age.

His tenacity and devotion to the true Zodiac, which resurrected Ophiuchus from a 2,000 year banishment, was a supreme and solitary sacrifice, which put at risk his career in astronomy, and was ignored for decades by astrologers.

Walter also wrote extensively about the effects and meanings of the planets and the signs, not only beautifully expressed, but also creating the most accurate descriptions of the archetypes that we all use in our astrological methodology.

Women Who Kill

Women pushed past their limits

The confidant, boastful world of men is spinning out of control, and women are fomenting a not-so-silent revolution. The yielding, supportive and suffering female is disappearing, and being replaced by a much more militant version of herself. Their pliant codependency with men has not served them well enough to let it continue, and women have had enough. Women are sifting through the rubble of their hopes and dreams and demanding more of themselves, and more from the men who have sabotaged them for centuries. They won't be willing victims of the system any longer. MORE
