Solar Eclipse in Aquarius: Into the Maelstrom

January 27th, 2009 by Voxx

SolarEclipseThe New Moon in Aquarius created a Solar Eclipse on Sunday, January 25th, 2009 at 11:59 pm (PST). The eclipse occurred at 6º Aquarius, a quite favorable degree, sub-ruled by Neptune. It’s a good thing the degree itself is so positive, as having a Solar Eclipse happen so close to President Obama’s inauguration has made me a bit nervous.

I’ve always found that solar eclipses really do tend to portend serious challenges, in whichever astrological house they occur (and even as I write this, I just heard that a volcano in Alaska has just become active again!)

New Moon Info: The chart of the New Moon in Aquarius occurred when the Ascendant was at 0º Scorpio, promising that the ensuing Solar Eclipse will have very intense ramifications for those with Scorpio rising — that means President Obama, amongst others.

As the great astrologers of old have stated, that “the stars cast their shadows” before major events. Some of the craziness that has been grabbing the headlines as of late, consist of senseless slayings, such as the gang kids in Miami who were gunned down by an AK-47; as well as a relative replay where a young Asian student from Virginia Tech brutally killed a female student with a knife. No doubt, we’ll continue to hear startling stories such as this for the next six months.

About Aquarius: Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, which makes it a highly-volatile sign — for good or bad. Sudden outbursts of rage and joy alternate, making for quite a wild ride.

Ordinarily, a Solar Eclipse by itself is intense enough, but right now the astrological energies are really unstable — what with Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn, and Saturn retrograde in Virgo making unsettling aspects to Uranus in Pisces, it’s no wonder that everyone seems to be whirling down into a maelstrom of madness.

If you want to find out how this most recent Solar Eclipse is going to affect you, it might be time to call me to get a Psychic Reading to prepare yourself for the uncertain times ahead.

Mini-Healing Ritual: In the meantime, light a pale blue candle, and take a Lavendar bath and find some time to meditate on balancing your emotions. It’s going to be one of those days — for the next 365 days in a row.

Aleister Crowley’s Greater Feast

December 1st, 2008 by Voxx

s_univ.jpgToday is the 61st Anniversary of the death of the avatar of Western Magick, Edward Alexander Crowley (more famously known as Aleister Crowley). Thelemites (those who follow the magickal tenets of Crowley) refer to this special day as Crowley’s Greater Feast.

As a Thelemite, I always observe the Holy Days of Thelema, and earlier today remembered to meditate on the special energy of this day; however, at 11:34 pm (PST) the remembrance hit me full force. I felt his spirit must have left close to this time all those years ago.

Of course, today’s observance of the anniversary of Crowley’s death is extra special, as it’s also the day of a rare Jupiter/Venus Conjunction, an Astrological signifier of blissful union.

After looking over the Astrological Chart of Crowley’s death (December 1st, 1947), I saw that the Sun was at 9 Degrees in the sign of Sagittarius. I suddenly realized that this exactly conjoined one of my karmic planets at the exact degree. No wonder the path of Thelema called out to me so strongly in this incarnation!

In closing, I’d like to end this post with one of the more stirring passages from Crowley’s own Liber XV (The Gnostic Mass), wherein the Deacon of the Mass states:

“Unto them from whose eyes the veil of life hath fallen may there be granted the accomplishment of their true Wills; whether they will absorption in the Infinite, or to be united with their chosen and preferred, or to be in contemplation, or to be at peace, or to achieve the labour and heroism of incarnation on this planet or another, or in any Star, or aught else, unto them may there be granted the accomplishment of their wills; yea, the accomplishment of their wills. AUMGN. AUMGN. AUMGN.”

Wherever you are Frater Perdurabo, I hope you can see the beauty of the legacy that lives on in all of your magickal children.

Total Solar Eclipse 2008: Dragon-Eating Moon

August 1st, 2008 by Voxx

Don’t forget to watch the Solar Eclipse via the internet at 3:21 am (PDT).  (Click the NASA link at the bottom of this post to watch the eclipse via live-streaming). The New Moon will be in Leo at 9 Degrees (the exact degree of the Sun, which is what causes an eclipse in the first place).

This eclipse concerns me greatly, as it occurs within one degree of some very inauspicious Fixed Stars.  According to ancient star lore, here is a bit of info:

South Asellus:  8° Leo 35 – Asellus is considered unfortunate, and it’s energy is related to both the Sun and Mars.  In particular, this star concerns military preferment, blindness, eye trouble, shipwreck, mass murder, horrors, self-willed, unwillingness to cooperate

Giansar:  10° Leo 20 – Although Giansar is considered a “neutral” energy, it’s connection to Saturn and Mars, causes additional concern, as it shows danger of robbery and accidental poisoning.

This particular eclipse threatens to dethrone, maim and kill emperors, rulers and those who are in high authoritative positions.  Not only that, but the influence of eclipses is generally felt for up to 6 months afterward!  Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

For anyone with any planets at 6 to 12 degrees Leo, there is no doubt that major changes are underway.  Time to get it together — it’s going to be a bumpy ride alright!

UPDATE:  I was up until sunrise, performing a New Moon in Leo ritual, using my Scrying Mirror to catch the the Moon’s magnificence.  I’ll be posting some pix soon.  Seriously, I haven’t felt this much energy from an eclipse since 1991.  The view was exhilarating, even if it was only caught on my television.  Now, we have 4 planets in the sign of Leo, which promises this to be a very historical time, that will no doubt begin immediately.

Midsummer’s Nite

June 24th, 2008 by Voxx

I’m actually writing this on June 23rd — waiting to set out the silver bowl to collect the morning dew of Saint John’s Eve (Midsummer’s Eve).  I use the dew to concoct some very magickal potions and brews for the rest of the year.  It definitely works.  I’ll add a bit about Midsummer Legends to this post, when I can on an on-going basis.

LVX,

Pluto Enters Capricorn

January 26th, 2008 by Voxx

s devil 1Finally … something to write about! I’ve been waiting for this day for quite awhile and it’s here. Pluto will move into the Sign of Capricorn at 6:37 pm PST! The importance of this planetary movement is literally historic, and quite momentous.

Pluto has been in the sign of Sagittarius since November 11th, 1995. Chances are you remember exactly where you were, who you were with and what you were doing when Pluto switched signs — I know exactly what I was doing, that’s for sure. (Insert deep, private thoughts here.)

Whatever transformations you will experience depends on a few things:

1) The placement of Pluto in your Natal Astrological Chart and how this transit will aspect it; and

2) The placement of Saturn in your Natal Astrological Chart and how this transit will aspect it;

Pluto is considered the Planetary Ruler of the sign of Scorpio, itself the Zodiac Sign of Transformation, the Occult, Legacies, Sex and Death.

Capricorn is ruled by the planet Saturn, which is the planet which rules Career, Recognition, Restriction, Karma and — you guessed it — Death.

What happens when the planet of intense transformation enters the rather harsh sign of Capricorn? Nothing less than a revolution. A physical, economic, spiritual and psychic meltdown of epic proportions.

Not to mention the fact that the end of the Mayan Calendar (December 21st, 2012) happens to occur during this particular placement. Coincidence perhaps? Yeah, right. Still, it’s not all bad news you know. Especially if you happen to have Capricorn Rising (or anticipate positive aspects as the result of this placement).

Still, it’s going to be time to wake up and smell the cat food, as it were. I’ll post more about this historical bit of Astrological news in my Magickal Forum under the Astrology Section as soon as possible.

In the meantime, take some time to light a Candle (Indigo Blue, Black or Dark Red) and meditate on how you can get the most out of this intense time.
