The recent Royal Tour by William and Kate from 19–26th March was an eight day visit to the Caribbean region – specifically Belize, Jamaica and the Bahamas – intended to celebrate the 70-year rule of William’s grandmother and to shore up support for the monarchy in the region. What was supposed to be a “charm offensive” on the part of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge soon turned into a PR nightmare with images described as “cringeworthy” by The Washington…..
The planet Mercury has much in common with its opponent, Jupiter, who sits as ruler of its own signs on the other side of the Thema Mundi chart. Together Jupiter and Mercury rule the four mutable signs: Jupiter rules mutable fire and mutable water and Mercury rules mutable earth and mutable air. The four signs are called bicorporeal because they are the combination of two separate images. Jupiter’s Pisces are two fish swimming away from each other but bound by…..
Saturn is the last of the visible planets and holds a unique position in the Chaldean Order of the planets. Traditionally it was believed to be the planet closest to the 8th sphere, the home of the Primum Mobile (the term introduced by Ptolemy for the singular God). Saturn was the first planet visited on the soul’s descent and the last planet when the soul rose to the heavens at the moment of death. Its orbit through the zodiac takes…..
Jupiter owns two of the mutable signs which have a quartile aspect to one another. Sagittarius is a masculine sign with a combination of hot and dry qualities and belongs with the fire element signs. As a fire sign it allows Jupiter to seek external stimuli, and lives on the anticipation of something new and exciting waiting around the next corner. When Jupiter is located in two of the fixed signs – Taurus or Scorpio – it cannot see Sagittarius……
The next two signs to be examined in this series belong to the Sun and the Moon. Both the Sun’s life-giving light and warmth, and the Moon’s nightly visits, have a deep visual impact on our lives but there is another connection which links these two celestial bodies. Their two signs of rulership lie side by side in the zodiac and aversion makes clear how difficult a relationship can be when two neighbours decide they cannot get along together. Aversion…..
Taurus and Libra are the two signs belonging to the planet Venus. Similar to Mars, these two signs hold no Ptolemaic aspect, rather they are inconjunct and their one link comes through being ruled by the same planet. Taurus is feminine in gender, cold in active quality, dry in passive quality, and together the two qualities create the element of earth. Taurus rising is cautious, slow to react, and fundamentally tied to the safety of routine and the realm of…..
The two signs belonging to Mars, that is, Aries and Scorpio, have little in common with one another. Aries is a masculine sign, a fire element, and a cardinal modality. Aries is blind to one singular sign and this is the sign which follows it in the zodiac. If Mars resides in Taurus it is in aversion to Aries and we have the condition of a blind Ascendant ruler. Scorpio is in complete contrast to Aries; it is a feminine…..
‘World, Can You See Me? Do You See What I See?’ The first house, whose beginning is from the eastern part, is called the Ascendant, and this house….signifies life, the body of any particular native or querent, and it signifies the beginning of any work and of every election, and every beginning, and it signifies the beginning of life of any nativity. (This house) comes from the hidden to light, and from parts occult to those manifest, so he who…..
