Jack Parsons: Darkside of the Moon

June 17th, 2009 by Voxx

BelarionToday, Wednesday, June 17, 2009 at 5:08 pm PDT, marks the exact time of the 57th Anniversary of Jack Parsons‘ tragic death.  Parsons, (born, Marvel Whiteside Parsons, and also known as John), was a brilliant scientist who was one of the main founders of Jet Propulsion Laboratory (affectionately known as “Jack Parsons Laboratories, by Parsons fans).

Jack was the inventor of solid rocket fuel, which was the single most important contribution to the Moon missions, for without Jack’s contribution, there never would have been a man on the moon (at least not within the time frame, it was achieved). For his contributions to the field of space exploration, Jack was given the honor of having not one, but two craters on the moon, named for him (albeit, both are on the dark side of the moon … amazingly appropriate.) Read about Parsons’ craters here.

Despite enough intelligence to have garnered him lasting fame for his contributions in the field of science and chemistry, it was Parsons’ secondary interest and practice of the Magick of Aleister Crowley, that has since overshadowed his more worldly legacy.

In 1939, at the young age of 26, Parsons was introduced, by Wilfrid T. Smith, to the magickal philosophy of Aleister Crowley, the head of the organization known as, the Ordo Templi Orientis.

Parsons life took a strange turn when he undertook a ritual he named,The Babalon Working, wherein he performed an intense Enochian Ritual, specifically designed to manifest an earthly incarnation of the Thelemic primal goddess, “Babalon.”

Much has been written about this extraordinary ritual, and its shocking, seemingly tragic outcome, in the form of two books, “Sex and Rockets“, and “Strange Angel“. (Purchase these books, via links listed below).

I have created several Astrological Charts regarding the highlights of Parsons’ fascinating life, which are available upon request, to serious Magicians, and those interested in the Jack’s magickal career.

In honor of Jack’s memory, there is a group on Facebook, dedicated to this amazingly talented man.

There is also a collector’s edition, Jack Parsons’ Memorial T-Shirt, available here.

Christian Bale’s Astrological Blowout Explained

February 4th, 2009 by Voxx

Christian JesusPoor Christian Bale — um, strike that, I meant to say “poor Assistant Director of Photography who happened to piss off Christian Bale”, yesterday.

Well, the verbal tirade Bale launched on the set of his latest film, (The Terminator: Salvation) was one for the books!

After checking out Bale’s Astrology Chart, it became apparent to me (as a professional Astrologer), that his violent verbal abuse happened when Mars conjuncted his Venus in the last intense degrees of hard-core Capricorn. Astrologically speaking, it was obvious to me that Bale felt morally superior, as a look at his chart shows a hardcore perfectionist who has no time for those who disregard his work.

It didn’t help that the Moon had just entered the martial sign of Aries, making an Opposition to Bale’s Pluto in Libra, an aspect that had him make some extremely hateful statements. Still, close to the end of the tirade, Bale stated that he thought the assistant was “a nice guy”, trying to show that he was not personally mad at him, but professionally disgusted with the crew member’s lackadaisical attitude toward screwing up the film scene.

Although Bale’s time of birth is unknown (making an accurate horoscope for him difficult), I’m suggesting that Bale has a Scorpio Ascendant, which would put transiting Venus in Aries in his 6th House of Work, where he happened to be when he had his emotional blowout.

If Bale indeed has Scorpio Rising, it would do much to explain how he is able to transform his body so drastically in his films (check out The Machinist to witness what I’m talking about!) And just look at Bale’s wildly successful portrayal of Batman, which is deeply steeped in Scorpionic symbolism — a secretive man with great intelligence, spies on criminals and kills them, all the while donned as a bat, famed blood-sucking creature of the night

In addition, having a Scorpio Ascendant, would indicate that Bale must have had a very negative effect as a result of the last New Moon (A Solar Eclipse), which would have occurred in his 4th House, which rules the Home and Family. This Solar Eclipse Conjuncted Bale’s Sun in Aquarius, and Trined his Pluto in Libra exactly at 6 Degrees, and I’m assuming it occurred in his 12th House, the home of Karma and self-undoing. No kidding.

And it’s not over yet — as Bale also needs to be careful on this upcoming February 9th, when the upcoming Full Moon in Leo happens in his 10th House, the place of Career, Reputation and Fame. Needless to say, as the stars “cast their shadows” before they make their aspects, a measure of damage has already been done to his career.

Warning Signs: Bale showed signs of anger issues, back on July 20th, 2008, when he apparently lashed out at his mother and sister (family, which is ruled by the Sign of Cancer). On July 22nd, the day the Sun entered Leo, ruling his 10th House, he was arrested for the incident which occurred 2 days earlier. Interesting to note the effect of the Eclipses in Bale’s chart; 28 days after he was arrested, there was a Solar Eclipse in Leo (again happening in Bale’s 10th House of Fame).

Now, almost 6 months to the day, Bale once again makes headlines with another hateful outburst. Astrology has proven that the effects of an eclipse can last up to 6 months — I rest my case. And for those who doubt, you might want to research the effect eclipses had on the sinking of the Titanic.

Anyway, long story short, I think it’s important to note that Bale’s outburst was set off by a sense of someone’s disregard for the hard work he puts into his roles. Clearly, it’s time for a little Healing Candle Ritual for Mr. Bale. I hope he can learn to channel more of his rage into his characters, rather than toward those who clearly don’t possess the good luck to have achieved such great success, so early in life. Have a heart Christian — and in the meantime, call me for a Psychic Reading while you’re at it.

[Note: If you'd like to hear the rant for yourself, it's easy enough to find on the web -- I had to take out the link from this page.]

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.

Obama’s Oath Snafu: Mercury Retrograde

January 22nd, 2009 by Voxx

sword 08
With President Obama’s Inauguration already behind us, there are a few things that no doubt have started gnawing on our memories, such as; What in tarnation was up with Aretha Franklin’s rendition of America the Beautiful? Why was Herbie Hancock playing in the wrong key on One Love? And of course, what in the world was Chief John Roberts thinking when he screwed up Obama’s Inauguration Oath of Office? Hmmm? Anybody?

I, for one, blame good ole’ Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius, which is ruled by Uranus, considered to be the Higher Octave of Mercury, Lord of Communication (amongst other things).

Well, what can you do? After listening to Obama’s golden-tongued speeches for a couple of years now, I was really annoyed to have the wonder of his normally flawless oratorio smudged by the senseless flubs fed to him by Chief John Roberts.

Psychic Flash: As I was preparing dinner (a wonderful raw, vegan salad), I suddenly flashed on the idea of Obama re-taking the Inauguration Oath, which I thought was pretty crazy. Imagine my surprise when I saw that Obama had INDEED re-taken the Oath in private, at the White House!

I’m sure there are those of my readers who wonder how I can possibly continue to be amazed when I get Psychic Flashes like this, but I do. I hope I never lose the capacity to get a thrill when my Psychic ability proves to be correct, yet once again.

Anyway, now that I’m fast becoming known as The Presidential Psychic, I’ll be regularly posting more interesting Psychic Flashes regarding Obama, as they come to me.

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.
