Summer Solstice
June 21, 2018

(Northern Hemisphere)

By Star the Good Witch

It seems to be quite common to have Grand Aspects between the planets/points when the Summer Solstice occurs, because it is considered a gateway to the higher realms which are bringing in new lessons and spiritual knowledge. This year we have a Grand Cross, two T.Square's and a Grand Trine. (see Chart Wheel below).

The most dominating Planets/Points involved in these Grand Aspects are the Sun, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and the Black Moon Lilith. The ones that are most affected are the Moon, Mercury, Saturn and Chiron.

What makes a difference to the aspects this year is Uranus. Uranus just recently left Pisces and moved into Aries. In Pisces Uranus was more on a spiritual path, much enlightenment is reached when Uranus is in Pisces although there is a vulnerability towards illusions, delusions and melancholy. In Aries, Uranus tends to be more the rebel and revolutionist. Pisces is about the depths of our subconscious mind, our instincts and spiritual growth. Whereas Aries is about ego, action and self responsibility. So over the past few years, although the aspects have been challenging it has mostly occurred on an inner level. Now is the time to get a grip on reality as our thoughts, actions, and creativity, will now burst into life at a speed that is way beyond our control. We must use this energy wisely and at the same time, think outside of the box to break free of earthbound restrictions that block our spiritual and mental growth. It sounds simple on paper, but the reality can often be intense and alarming.

The energy is fast moving and speeding up in dramatic and intense ways. Manual labour is needed less and less, while the field of technology continues to grow and expand. We need to adapt to a new way of living, thinking and acting, but also be careful, watchful and vigilant with our sense of mindfulness. We are evolving so fast that it is taking a serious toll on our health, even for those who live a healthy life and exercise regularly will be concerned about their lack of energy or feelings of nervous tension. It is more important now than ever, for us to take great care of our nervous system, digestive system and psychological health.

That phrase, “those who don't hear must feel” is apt throughout this Summer Solstice as pride and resistance stand in the way of much spiritual and emotional growth. We must not “cut our nose to spite our face”. There is a great potential towards self abuse as old wounds come to the surface that have either been previously overlooked, or hidden within the dark depths of our psyche. This deep reflection may be overwhelming and hard to face for some, while for others it will be a relief and release of a final letting go. Many tears may be shed over the next few weeks as we face up to our pain and confront our deepest fears. Some of us could get stuck in freeze mode when it comes to facing our shadow self, due to a lack of self esteem. Fears of rejection, change, or losing face, will continue to entrap our minds and block us from moving forward. This is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign that we are on the last leg of the journey and like they say, “the last mile is always the hardest” Let's throw our Ego's to wind and embrace authenticity. Let us be honest about our feelings. Let us love ourselves unconditionally and let go of past inhibitions or feelings of guilt. Let us be a part of the change that will be for the good of all.

The energy coming in is very competitive and testing. We must not blind ourselves or use forms of escapism to avoid the inevitable, but to embrace these lessons and experiences, and move forward with more wisdom and enlightenment. The world is changing and we must adapt with it accordingly. We must not fear our destiny.

Unconditional love is the Key to freedom this year, but so is mindfulness and inner strength. If your Key doesn't fit the lock, then you are at the wrong door.

For this Summer Solstice I suggest that we spend much time in meditation and pay attention to your Sacral Chakra, Heart Chakra and Solar Plexus. Light a Pink Candle and burn Rose Incense to sooth the mind and encourage self love.

Use the affirmation:

I am grounded and use my inner wisdom to listen to guidance of my higher self. I have clarity of mind and a balanced heart. I am at peace.

Much Love

The Moon in the 13 Signs

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…

Just like the tides rising and falling with the pull of the Moon, we are bound by the cycles of birth and death.  Our bodies create and then burn chemicals from the food we eat while our brain fortifies our physical and psychic reality with meaning.  The vibe we get from other people are all under the spell of the Moon.  If we focus too much on the Moon’s energy, we can become epi-delusional with a lack of will as we navigate the unseen waters of our existence.  With too little focus on the Moon’s energy we can become hermetically disenfranchised from the humility inherent in our primordial collectivity, a collectivity brought to life when universes are formed in chemical stews of synchronistic explosions, or when birds fly in murmuration, or our bodies bleed into one another as we heat light and sound to create something new.

The Fall of the House of Trump

The Player's Fall: Noble-Peace-Prize winner Trump (NOT)

Trump is a Taurus with his opposing Moon in Ophiuchus. He is like a white-trash wizard, who can revitalize his followers to jump and shout as if they had got the Holy Spirit in them. Trump's Holy Spirit, however, is the acknowledgment of the cruelty and sadism that lies within his American audience of white "dreamers". Unlike the immigrant dreamers, Trump's supporters don't look for a better future; they dream of the rotten past, when white people were the majority and foreigners were foreign. They dream of the 1950s, when white people were driven like a herd of happy sheep into a cold war; when it was OK to be culturally, sexually, emotionally repressed, with consumerism as the only permitted activity. They dream a stupid, unrealizable dream.

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

Gemini by Hiroko Sakai

Gemini! Gemini!
said the spider to the fly

June 20-July 20

Geminis are players; they like to play. How could that be bad? Geminis don’t like to lose; they really don’t, and they can go to any extreme to win. Gemini can dazzle, obfuscate, seduce, or coerce with their talking points. Geminis got game, the hip patter, the street cred to talk their way in or out of anything in any language. They are often our most fascinating person, and that's because they agree. Gemini is childhood at its best. They ask a lot of questions. Life is a secret garden for the two celestial twins, one of whom is a boy and the other, a girl; these two opposing elements are yet joined at the hip to explore and play inside the Gemini world. They both share many exemplary qualities, intelligence, vivacity, curiosity; however, they become bored and restless easily, instantly, always needing new and wilder stimuli for the voracious brain, their biological hard disk with all memory. The visceral reaction and trauma that other signs have to this quick-change robs Gemini of friends and lovers. But, after all, they always can make new ones!

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

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.

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.

MORE about Walter, plus an exclusive interview.

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
