Let the Horary Begin!

I am now taking 300 B & C at Kepler College on horary astrology, so expect some posts on topics related to the classes on Horary from Lee Lehman, Gary Gomes and Bruce Scofield!

Canada’s 2008 Federal Election: A Full Moon & More of the Same ’08!

This morning at 12:30am (Ottawa, EST time) marked the end of voting for the Canadian Federal Election, yesterday across Canada our polls opened for the final day of voting.


Just 45 minutes following, the moon went full in Aries, ruling over Mars in its own domicile in Scorpio, activatin the Sun in Libra and Venus in Scorpio.

I was slightly disheartened to see that not one US news network gave any coverage. CNN and Fox news were focusing on blunders at the podium.

There is a seat system adopted here, but majority and minority governments often occur when there large percentages of one party’s dominance when municipal ridings are won in certain areas.




Presently we have a couple parties, with 5 major ones

1. CON – Conservative Party
2. LIB – Liberal Party
3. NDP – New Democratic Party
4. GRN – Green Party
5. BQ – Bloc Québécois

AAE – Animal Alliance Environment Voters Party
CAP – Canadian Action Party
CHP – Christian Heritage Party
COM – Communist Party
FPN – First Peoples National Party
LBT – Libertarian Party
M-L – Marxist-Leninist Party
MP – Marijuana Party
NRP – Neo-Rhino Party
PCP – Progressive Canadian Party
WB – Western Block Party


Elections Canada stated this morning that the seat distribution is counted

so far, counting is not yet complete:

Conservatives: 143 seats, 37.6%
Liberals: 76 seats, 26.2%
Bloc Quebecois: 50 seats, 10%
NDP: 37 seats, 18.2%
Other parties: 2 seats, 8%

So the polls ended at 9:30pm last night in Vancouver, PST time, making it 12:30am here in Ottawa, Ontario, the captial of Canada.

Here is the chart for this morning at 12:30am for Ottawa, as the last ballot is cast in BC.



The transits are here in green over each of the candidates natal charts.
Please be advised that the times are NOON BIRTHS, so please disregard the ascendant.


Democratic Leader Stephen Harper


Liberal Leader Stephane Dion

NDP Leader Jack Layton

Bloc Quebecois Leader Gilles Duceppe

Green Party Leader Elizabeth May


This election at the present moment the Conservatives went up from 127 seats to 143, and the liberals dropped 19 seats to 76. Basically, everything is staying the same, but the biggest loss was the Green Party’s inability to get a seat in the House for the first time in history.


Does it look as if the candidates charts reflect the popularity showing in the polls?  It appears if Canadians are pleased with the current state of affairs, and wish to continue the same course.

The Moon’s Beating Heart

In the month of January we have the first full Moon of 2007. The internet is frantic with movies of the Moon’s phases throughout any given month. We are accustomed to examining its phases throughout the course of a cycle such as below:

In another approach to analyze the cycles of the Moon, http://www.pixheaven.net/ decided to illustrate the varying distances and wobble phases of each full Moon last year dating back 20 full Moons to May of 2005. The results they collected are below:

It is excellent that the Moon would not only inaugurate the year so quickly with this luminous full Moon, but also in its own domicile, . The below animation is built on the above images. When you stop to observe the difference between each full Moon, there is a definitive difference depending on each frame in proximity and libration.


The irregular elliptical orbit of the moon is intensified through this snapshot of each full moon, as the orbit is neither a perfect circle, or centered exactly around the earth.

The lunar apogee and perigee of the Moon is different in these shots, giving the impression of a beating heart. This might indicate a reason why some Full Moons are more intense in nature, corresponding to the environment, and the emotional sway of people. Does the Moon consistently beat stronger in certain signs? here is the amount of difference the size between the lunar apogee and perigee is:

The apogee and perigee are explained below. The Apogee is the farthest the Moon can be from the Earth, and the Perigee is the closest the Moon orbits to the earth.

In the end, not only can we view the waxing and waning appearance of the Moon and view her many faces in the course of a month, but now we can see and feel her pulse on the earth, over a longer period of time. If you are curious enough, review the listing of zodiac signs in which the moon was full, and see if you can pick up on which zodiac signs the Moon was the closest and the farthest. Were these heated times for society? This ‘beat’ that the Moon animates itself with, truly adds another facet to looking at the earth as a cosmic animal, with the Sun and Moon pumping and churning the earth’s mantel on a continual basis, much like the heart in our own bodies.

Love the Moon with all of your heart
