I've decided to take a little jaunt myself!

I'm breaking my 30 year moratorium on flying and taking to the air to celebrate Jupiter, life, and Thanksgiving.

I've got an exquisite vintage wine from Borneo I've been saving and a new song I've composed for this very special occasion.

See you when I arrive!

Well, of course flying by magic carpet is OK! Look at the view one would have, like riding a bike! :-)

Have a great time!!!

I can fly low on my carpet and catch all the twinkling light displays.

Don't bite anyone but the turkey neith!

Hello down there, speaking of grounding!:-)

I was trying to figure out where in the world you were with your flighty Gemini Rising!
And humor hath returned!

In all the excitement I forgot that the Sun went into Sagittarius today to add to the joyousness of Jupiter's travels. Lynn Hayes has an excellent post which reminded me beautifully.

Expansion, Joy, and Life

So the Sun will join Jupiter Friday for a couple of days to kick off the season. Glad I'm not shopping!

No wonder I was watching a gospel music video last night and getting goose bumps...Mahalia Jackson, the Staple singers, the incredible inimitable ace guitarist Sister Rosetta Tharpe, and if you really want some jubilation, check out the Clara Ward Singers, a pentecostal group of fabulous women with more spirit than any human could possess.

And of course!

These books popped off the shelf at me yesterday in the library:

On Truth
On Earth
The Eternal Questions


From the Questions:
The most beutiful experience you can have is the sense of the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science. Whoever does not know it and can no longer wonder, no longer marvel, is not fully alive and his eyes are dimmed.

Right now we have Sun, Moon, Venus & Pluto in Sag . . . early tomorrow the Moon moves into Capricorn for a traditional T-Day. Say, Joe, are you doing the cooking tomorrow? With all the Earth Moons in your household good eats are a really big deal . . . :-)

"consciously thinking"????

I'm gettin down man!

BTW, Jupiter will be conjuncting your "Neptune"(uh-oh) and Mercury in the 7th, a great opportunity for expansion and intellectual exchange with your people. The recent elimination paved the way for the good times.

Yep, we're having 12+ people over, including my parents. Mostly a collection of friends and acqaintances who have nowhere else to go for whatever reason(s).

I remember that before I struck out on my own in 1997, I made a wish that I wanted to have a house where people were welcome to come and eat. And it came true. :o)

Of course, Mark's 20+ years of experience in the kitchen make for delicious food and tremendous amounts of it. His gravy is out of this world. :o) I wish I could upload it into the blog for y'all, but I'm afraid it wouldn't make it safely...

And that's a tricky one to master.

Raise your hands if you've had too much starchy, lumpy, congealed, tasteless gravy in your history!

Yep, I finally grasped this concept over at Neith's kitchen, just now. Amazing how an offhand way of stating something crystallizes it for me.

Was that ever a trial and a half! I felt like I'd gone through the wringer.

Ha, Ha, Ha!!! That doesn't apply to me & thee . . . :-)

ME! That's one of the reasons I do my own cooking for T-Day . . .

You know, joe. I was in it too. The wringer that is. And a lot of others . That was a helluva lot of Scorpio, even for a Sun in Scorpio.

That's exactly why I have so much confidene in the immediate future. We've paid the piper.

One of the reasons I am taking a break, turning off the phone & only interacting with those I choose too. R & R is just what the cosmic physician ordered for all of us. Speaking of Chiron, he will be much happier with Jup in Sat instead of Scorpio . . . Chiron is currently traveling through Aquarius.

That's the 'between the line' factor I adhere to for knowledge. The spontaneity is the best. And Trust. We get it when we're ready. The dawning.

Excellent point!
Could the healing get easier? Or at least the pain might be less noticable with the increased activity and involvemnt in higher things outside the personal.

I knew it. I could feel it coming. This will be a perfect time for some zodiacal wanderings such as through the Nodes of the Moon!

Please do!! Your input on the Nodes has added a whole new level of interest to the way I look at charts now. From what I'm seeing, they play a much greater role than I've heard any other astrologer say.

They are so fundamental neith. They are always behind the problems.

If we go back through charts you know and add this factor you will see it all.
It makes it a million times easier to understand people and why they do what they do...repeatedly.

I have a theory as to why they are the most important thing, and I'll go into that first.

One of the best things they do is simplify. I think the major pitfall is complicating interpretaion. Looking at one aspect will tell you little. It has to be synthesized. Even in transit.

The answers and identical patterns are repeated everywhere in dissection but a lot of it is unneccesary unless you enjoy that kind of thing.
Applictaion to the life is a lot easier when simplified.
I make all my decisions based on the nodal axis.

This Ten Eternal Questions book has got some great quotes in it. You'll enjoy them. Going to get them posted and we can add our insights.

Exactly why those long, detailed astro reports leave most people shaking their head. The way we go into different aspects here is far more helpful.

All your decisions?! :-)

Well, the Big Ones that keep recurring.

The long detailed astro reports don't connect.
From the very beginning when I started reading charts I could actually see a story. That's more of the right brain involvement. The mathematical part is there too (I don't struggle with it and make it a big iissue), but without the saga, the myth, the novel, the music, etc., a chart is meaningless to me.
It's a wheel of life and full of insight.

I use the blueprint as a take off point. I never fail to see many many real things in people's lives in the wheel. The Nodes alone speak volumes.

The problem I always had with a chart was how much of a story was in each aspect. So I tend to dwell for a long time. Past and present are all there in detail and it's rich.

My Moon conjunct Jupiter for example. Of your Moon conjunct Neptune. I can tarry forever contemplating these things.
And actually, with Jup in sag, I just might.

One of the things that I've always had trouble with in this world is the too fast forward motion. The nervous exit from the present experience. Avoiding what you call savoring. I feel this way about being in too much of a hurry inside a chart.

22/11/06 6:06 PM

So by lingering I see basic themes.
For example in your chart. The situation in your life with your family now is a repeat of a basic theme with the Moon/Neptune, Pisces 4th, NN in the 7th, and the last 29th degree of libra Sun(very telling of a story).

The 29 is asking for a complete pertnership this time around with the Node. The undertow is the past and confusion as to who really represents this partnership. It happened early with your parents with the Moon and Sun in Libra, maybe the mother being most problematic. You've been pulled in conflicting directions in the search for the perfect one on one. Others wanting you to themselves. You being taken advantage of, yet your Scorpio gets it. Now it's surfacing again. Whose problems will dominate and require most of your attention and things like that. Then Venus in the 1st says it's ME I really love. Then of course the Saturn/Pluto in Leo and the search for center stage.

But the NN is the winner ultimately, and because of the trine to the Libra, lessons of love from the past, despite the conflicts, will turn out to be of great help in establishing the perfect marriage. The goal. With the warmth of Leo love.

jm - you truly amaze . . see why I started looking at the Nodes more!! You are right on in identifying the Neptunian themes. My Libra mother & i have gone back & forth with who parents whom since i was a teenager.

It is the Uranian theme in both our charts that seems to be coming to the fore. That urge to become the most unique individual ever! I truly believe Uranus both natally & by transit has saved my a** more than once in this life . . . it keeps reminding me to be true to my most creative self. I do love astrology . . . repeating myself here but it's so true!! :-)

Yes. The Uranian help is there. The 11th house placements and Uranus with the NN. It's really fascinating with the Uranus transit now. It's an opportunity to get free somewhat from the pattern.

I forgot to tell you who authored that quote:

Wonder-full quote from Uncle Albert, reminding me what I have to be thankful for, what I offer, even if it does not much come through in this medium.
Many blessings to you all. How sweet it is to sit in my study, reading your words as I face the Sun and Jupiter rising in tandem.
