It must have been moonglow
Way up in the blue
It must have been moonglow
That led me straight to you.

You'll find it. Maybe with the Moon and Mercury in Libra and the north node in Pisces. Or the Sun. Libra-Pisces. The match made in heaven.

Few things are worse than putting a lot of thought into a blog entry (or three) and then watching them sink without a ripple of response from the readership.

These last few days have been particularly rough riding for me, so I'm not in any good frame of mind right now.

Sorry to hear it Joe.
It's the same here.

Just stopped by to leave a wee note for jm similar to yours.

You are a kind and thoughtful guy. I hope what is rough will smooth out for you. We are getting some hopeful glimmers here.

Same here. The serious times I expected are arriving. Things to be faced honestly. Things to do. The Mars in Cancer is going to be rough in ways, but worth it. I guarantee we will all emerge changed a little. The recession is finally here and acknowledged which probably means down times all the way around. Not without sparks of joy in between though. But it's different already. Frankly, I'm relieved. The fallacies could use deletion. Today was one of the deepest feelings of relief I've felt in ages. I saw myself in a moment of clarity.

You can rest assured, joe, that ripples of response will occur in this outpost. Where have you been posting? Don't need a literal answer.

We can look at astrostuff.

People are tired. You can only be so clever and then poof! And honestly, not many are all that faithful in their devotion. They do what suits their purposes. They could even be getting a little more serious and genuine, doing a little less of the yes-man nod. Possibly. Response is so up and down. You can put out something one day and get grand applause, the next day, the exact same thing will meet ignorance. Can't take it personally.

There's a lull now with the Mars in Gemini transit but it will pick up soon as Mars comes to the opposition to Pluto. So get your words ready.

FYI joe. Mars in Gemini at 19 just bumped your Saturn starting last Saturday. It's over. Even made you forget you're an astrologer. Perfect timing as usual.

Libra-Pisces. The match made in heaven.

I was in a relationship with a Pisces for nearly 5 years, this is a long time ago. I can see what you mean by “made in heaven”, but I was so happy when I got out of it, it had turned into the opposite. Have to say though that he gave me one of the biggest gifts I received in my life, of course it came with a high price.

watching them sink without a ripple of response from the readership.

As to that, I think I have commented enough for a few month earlier on! I rather spare myself right now the intensity of diving so deep into a theme in such a public space, I get to feel all the psychic energy to such a response and I feel that belongs to my SN. Still have to learn how to share without absorbing so much. All those mutable planets I have and those squares and oppositions. I think that will be on my life´s menu in the next few years, how to balance that out very consciously. It is a process.

Yesterday I asked if I could please have a dream in which I would be given a image of what steps I needed to take right now. This is what I dreamed last night: me lying down to take an afternoon nap on a wooden pier by a lake. My hat covering my face from the shining sun.

I feel thinks will start moving for me in October after my new solar return chart kicks in. In my last solar return chart, I think except for 1 or 2 planets, everything was below the horizon, was like being in a cave for the whole year!

Oh, I think I should clarify that when I asked about what steps to take right now, it was in relation to some outer circumstances in my life right now, nothing to do with me commenting here.

I suppose this is true for the collective but for me the serious times have been here for the last three years already. I think I can trace it to the beginning of Saturn\Neptune. That was an illusion killer for me and I have been extra hard at work since just before it started. I could use a break, but I don't see one on the immediate horizon. People are tired Count me in, I've been sleeping extra hours all week.

Me too. That should do the trick.

Be back on this one mpk. It's interesting. The effects of the transit are slowly becoming manifest now. On the long ones it takes quite a bit of time to process and apply them. Saturn in Virgo opposing Uranus in Pisces is actually a little more of the same.

I've given a lot of thought to the function of illusions.
You are basically serious with Capricorn rising and Sun-Saturn. Mars in Pisces, however is the illusion lover. More in a bit.

Here's some of it.

You have Moon-Jupiter in Aquarius straddling the 2nd house cusp, indicating a good material setup, potentially great relationship with money and an ease in attracting it. It ties in with your Cancer 2nd house so partners are involved. It can work the opposite way, though, and they can bleed you. Moon-Jupiter is generous when expressed. Usually emotionally giving in a big way.

Three years ago Neptune was on the Moon-Jupiter (illusions concerning money, losses, sometimes unexpected gains) and Saturn moved in later putting a clamp on things. Normally a Jupiter in the 2nd doesn't have to work hard for money unless he wants to. Sometimes, though, they work excessively. Sometimes they can be too insecure about money. I think in your case it can free you up to apply the Capricorn effort elsewhere.

Anyhoo. Pluto was also opposite your Sun-Saturn in the 6th house of work, so no wonder you were working hard. Again, Moon-Joops are often meant to find abundance easily and enjoy life. The Saturn indicates applied effort to learning most of all, and self mastery, regardless of financial considerations.

What's interesting here is the hard working Saturn in the 6th combined with the material ease of Jupiter in the 2nd. Saturn is coming to your Neptune right now for more illusion work. In time, it could work out differently from what you think, in terms of work, a big destiny factor with your Sun-Saturn in the 6th. You don't want to waste your tremendous talent on less than miraculous achievements with Mars at 28 Pisces. This could change in the next few of years.

I could use a break, but I don't see one on the immediate horizon

It will be interesting to see what happens to your finances when the north node goes into Aquarius soon and crosses your Moon-Jupiter. This aspect is a huge asset.

But possibly the main thing is Pluto finishing the opposition to your Sun in the 6th. It will probably take a couple of years to see how your routines have been transformed. Mars in the 3rd squares, also being transited by Pluto, pointing toward writing. Things should change after the retrogrades are complete and Pluto moves fully into Capricorn. This is a good time to study astrology for the tracking purposes you mentioned. You want to make the most of that gift of Moon-Jupiter.

The illusions we've all been groping within are not over yet. Uranus has a while to go in Pisces with Saturn opposite. I would think, though, that after all of this some clarity is coming.

The illusions have actually been a good thing with the NN in Pisces. I think we need them for very sound reason as we explore altered dimensions then bring them home into this semblance of reality with Saturn. We can't live without an active dream state. We are getting a huge dose of this learning as a prelude to Pluto through Capricorn so we can use the inspiration practically. The veil is removed at just the right time, and if we go willingly into illusion, incorporate it, then the reality uncovered is not so bad. That could be the primary lesson these years. Not to be afraid of illusion. Use it. Pain comes and goes no matter what the dimension, so that shouldn't be problematic.

In other words, maybe we should stop running from our illusions! Reality is doing just fine. We'll never escape that.

Interesting. I've not wanted to believe this about myself but it all seems to be true. I have been working hard, have felt insecure about money, but at the same time I have been able to bring in a relatively large amount of money in a short time if I look at it objectively. I have a hard time being objective about it. I feel like this is just an initial stage of my existence, even though most would consider my career position of somewhat high accomplishment. It feels like my life energy is of infinite worth and so anything that's taking up my time should be "miraculous" as you say. It's pure gold! I look at the amount of money I need in order to be able to direct my life as I will, have resented the fact that I need to spend time accumulating money at all. I can't judge these thing the way others around me are judging them.

Ultimately you might not have to. That's a major aspect and potent. That's the story I get from your chart. Time spent in other dimensions, huge mental pursuits, higher learning with Pluto in the 9th, self mastery with NN Capricorn on the ASC. NNs in the first are given carte blanche to map their own destinies. They're given a wildeness to work with where no others have gone before. As an artist, I'm exactly like this. A shame to waste it along with Moon-Jupiter in the 2nd. And this says it all:

I can't judge these thing the way others around me are judging them.

Amen.

North node in the 1st. We think for ourselves, do for ourselves, feel for ourselves, work for ourselves, believe for ourselves, and live for ourselves. But we're really good people. The best. Actually good providers once we get centered. What they do is not really our business. You express that part quite well.

Thanks for these insights JM, you've expressed with great insight here who I feel myself to be. I'm just amazed at the power of your astrological insight.

Is there something about NN1's perception that is altered?

I saw a great performance last night by a true master of bass, Michael Manring. I was seeing him seemingly reach thru many dimensions playing his music. Another performer later joked "I think I'll practice Tai Chi for about 10 years and then try putting some music to it" as a way to describe the way the energy was flowing into the music. The look on his face and the radiance infusing could never be taken away, was not temporary. Greater than any response any audience could make. No self doubt there at all. No worries about execution. Technique completely transcended.

Exactly what I want. Thanks mpk. It can be done. What kind of venue was it?

Is there something about NN1's perception that is altered?

I think so. It's the true solo path, even if there is a relationship. So I associate it with the enlightened solitary seeker. I see it in you all the time in the way you establish your separation from the crowd. It has to be done, even if we are within one. You do so very well with this. There is no mistaking your independent stance, and I love it.

This node just doesn't identify with others although some try to. There is an instinctive separation of perception all the time, even if we momentarily coincide with them. The true longing is to go our own way. The 1st house rules the head so there could be a lot to your question about altered perception. I know from my perspective, I see things from angles no one else does. The challenge is not shying away from the solitary viewpoint. Embracing it fully, and in reality, it's for others to follow the NN 1. They're ahead of the pack. Someone has to be. Another challenge is to get past loneliness to fulfilled aloneness. Then comes pleasure alone or together. Makes no difference.

I think the NN1 sees further and broader than others in an unobstructed wilderness, so in this sense it's altered perception. I associate it with the scout who goes ahead to get the lay of the land, and most importantly, goes into uncharted territory. NN1 is a true pioneer. We want to experience what has never been known before and we have the nerve to do it. Our experience is ours alone so this is why the separation is necessary as we get it first hand.
Like the bass player who you saw as going into his own territory, leaving the audience to do what it wanted to. I like this so much.

The venue was Freight and Salvage in Berkeley, CA. It's got great acoustics and a great atmosphere:

http://www.thefreight.org/about.html

They call it a coffeehouse but really it's a somewhat historical musical venue that also has coffee. They have any amazing variety of artists who play there, and you really get a sense that the place exists for the sake of the art.

Exactly what I want Oh good...I sense you have it thru your writings, I thought you might appreicate this.

I'm enthused now, I'm off to get my copy of solar fire and start studying and playing... :-)

Oh mpk, I'm excited. You'll be a wonderful astrologer. We both have the big Pluto transit coming up to unlock reserves of potential energy, and I'd like to share insights.

This is great news about the music. I've been thinking a lot about the next moves, place-wise, and these creative environments are cropping up more and more. This is nourishing information. My dive bar days are over and a whole new territory is opening up, still a little vague but will soon come into focus. In fact, there's one coffee house, wine bar, I have in mind right now. Very very good.
