What Does Mercury Retrograde Look Like?

Mercury Retrograde (Mercury Rx) makes the orbit of Mercury look as if it is moving backwards once the planet’s orbit has reached maximum distance and has to orbit in front of the Sun. This left-to-right motion as the planet transits across the sun, as it appears to look like it is going in reverse is called retrograde motion.

This video will illustrate what the retrograde motion is in the sky. This is a time lapse on the same time at noon. Then we turn the lights off so that you can see the other planets more clearly.

Johannes Regiomontanus’ Calendar – Housecleaning

One slick Calendar

In typical ADD housecleaning, you check out the mess and attack it piece by piece.  I noticed my links are littered with, well, some whatever.  I thought the images in the calendar were so striking that I wanted to show this artwork off.  Cleaning up my links however, this deserves a post.


☿ Mercury Rx / ♆ Neptune D

☿ Mercury Rx / ♆ Neptune D

About fifteen hours ago… Neptune went direct. It’s been few years since I blogged on here, discussed astrology, or explained any astronomical physics. Fire up Starry Night Pro is what I’m thinkin. Seems like a time of some fresh planning and follow through.

How to Stop the Oil Leak in the Gulf of Mexico

How to Stop the Oil Leak in the Gulf of Mexico

This image is meant to be spread around to engineers, television stattions, politicians, or to anyone who might be able to use it to help in stopping this leak from continuing.

My aim is for this to be passed on to CNN, BP, Fox News, BBC News and any other news network which might expose this to someone who can help.

This device is created to be inserted into a high pressure hole with little resistance. I don’t know if this will be the right answer or if it will surely work, but I attempted to design a diagram illustrating the effect of plugging up the leak(s) in the Gulf of Mexico.

If the opening is equal in diameter, the sides would then be bent inward to create a smaller opening.

The device would then have cones which would open at the same time, and use the force of the ocean to push the opposing cone against the smaller opening.

Once the leak is plugged, it could then be more easily sealed and blocked off permanently.

This could function well if there are many holes, and at varying sizes in diameter as the design and cone shape is scalable.

If you find this useful, please pass it on to the appropriate think tanks or to BP themselves

Moon in Scorpio: 1000 Ways to Die on Spike TV

Spike TV has unveiled a new series bluntly named 1000 Ways To Die, showing a couple ways every week ranging from the quick and dirty to the silent but deadly.  As graphic as it is, this show pulls my morbidly curious Saturn-Mars conjunction in Scorpio to see what happens, and the fact that each different way to die is preceded by a time, place and person – perfect for the execution of a fateful transit.

The show does not put them into any specific order, so the numbers will be random, it appears as if Spike plans to air all 1000 ways to die.  The evening I first caught this show, I witnessed Way to Die #629… “Sex Ray”



The content displayed here is very graphic and must not be attempted by anyone.  If you try anything you see here, YOU WILL DIE

Once the torrent is done, I’ll put up the charts and examine to see if there is a relationship between the dates, events and the transits – Like a deathly Horary question asking “How Will I Die?”  Here is a snippet of one of these episodes:

Transits coming soon…

Pink’s Saturn Return in the Local News

 From the Metro News in Toronto today:

Pink (born September 8, 1979) is waiting for her birthday next year to seek clarity in her own life, and she has speculated that this will come about via her Saturn Return. Your Saturn return is the same as your birthday, but instead of being the time when the Sun comes back to where it was when you were born, Saturn’s orbit takes 28-30 years, so this will mark Pink’s first ‘Saturn Birthday’.

It is not often that we see celebrities openly using practical astrology, especially in the media, as the Saturn birthday is as much of an important stepping stone in life as ones own regular birthday.  Solar returns give much insight into the year to come, but the Saturn returns launches you over the threshold to adulthood, from where you meet the limits of time, maturity and death.

It is commonly accepted that one does not reach adulthood until the age of 30, and Saturn signifies maturity, structure, and limits – a threshold once passed, adults must face these turning points of life, or be doomed to repeat the lessons first met at 28 years at the second Saturn Return.  This usually occurs around ones mid-life crisis. Liz Greene is one of the most knowledgeable authors on the topic of Saturn, and has written the book Saturn: A New Look at an Old Devil.  A must read for anyone approaching or mystified by this event.

28-30 is the coming of age in the astrological world, and there is no better planet which teaches us this lesson than Saturn.  Pink’s Saturn is amidst a huge Virgo stellium

Pinks Natal Chart (time unknown) with transits for her Saturn Return Next Year in September 2009

Pink's Natal Chart (time unknown) with transits for her Saturn Return Next Year in September 2009


Exactly squaring her natal Neptune at 17° Sagittarius (currently her Neptune is being squared by transitting rebellious and disrupting Uranus in Pisces).  So we may see a more mature, sophisticated and potentially reserved Pink come next year.  Uranus in Pisces is not only squaring Neptune, but it is also opposing that entire Virgo stellium, looking directly at her Saturn and challenging it.  Pink may face many problems in the following year concerning Virgonian (mercury-ruled sorting, cleaning, nutrition, cleanliness, education, legal matters, business) and Piscean (jupiter-ruled belief, knowledge) and her stellium will only complicate matters further.  There may be some more rebellion against the musical status quo, but once Pink has completed the reuturn, which will probably en once Saturn leaves Virgo for Libra – if Pink is prepared, she will surely change her outlook and perspective at this juncture and reap Saturn’s rewards.

WHASSSAP!? Budweiser Ad Makes a Comeback in Sagittarius for Obama

Budweiser created one of history’s most memorable commericals in 1999, forever iconizing the American Dream of beer, football, and spending time with friends.



In lieu of current politics almost ten years later, Venus crossed over the budweiser commerical’s natal Pluto in their birth chart, and Pluto made a conjunction to their natal Sagittarius Sun, on top of Mars transiting over their natal Venus in Scorpio, all reflecting the comeback in interest towards a group of friends (Sagittarius Sun in 5th house) with interest from friends (transiting panets in 5th house – more matters pertaining to friends and fun stuff)

-football, friendship & beer are represented in the 7th house with Neptune transiting over mars (neptune is alcohol, mars is the ‘brothers’, the 7th house is them being each other’s partner in this event)

– the dark part of the allure to this commercial’s chart transits is that Pluto has wreaked havoc on each of the characters in the ad, each individual suffering from problems relating to the last 8 years [of government].



What makes this commercial special is the reflection of time, and the change of events stemming from post-1999 season up to now.  The commercial has a good chart for drawing the attention of friends and ‘good times’ in general, but the transits of this commercial explicate a deeper message of global change and re-examination of personal, and communal values.


Now enjoy the new WHASSSAP Budweiser Ad!
