Me and My Shadow – Taurus

You got me JF! I was showing the shadow of my Gemini South Node — jumping around too much. Your comment was correct – I SHOULD go to the opposite of the Scorpio North Node now – not jump to another nodal axis. Ah ha – I tossed in another word – Nodal Access. You know one thing I hate about astrology is when people try to make it totally confusing and inaccessible. The zodiac is a circle – go look at a chart – it is round – right? So, if you have a North Node on one side

Me and My Shadow – Scorpio

I have a friend into whom I have tried to pound the basics of astrology for months. Being born with a Scorpio South Node, she constantly gets lost in the minutia of each astrological concept despite my urgings to see the big picture. Scorpios are the detectives of the Zodiac – they love to root out the secrets – all of the details. (The South Node, remember, is where our soul has come from in previous lives and from which we need to evolve.) So this Scorpio South Node, Moon Child rising friend is regaling me in the many projects

“I Have A Dream” Neptune’s Whisper

I have been so taken by the Inauguration of President Lincoln, I mean President Obama, and the talk of Dr. King’s “I Have A Dream Speech” and the dream realized that I took at look at the astrology behind the day. I was struck with the realization that it was singer Mahalia Jackson who whisper to Dr. King, “tell them about the dream” as he was speaking to the participants in the March on Washington. His “I have a dream” was ad libbed – not a part of the original speech. Amazing. What made her do that – what was

3rd Presidential Debate

Tsk, Tsk, John McCain – you didn’t read my blog and you let that anger sneak out just as I predicted. Your “that one” comment, referring the Senator Obama, while ignored by the corporate controlled main stream press, was one of those debate errors that will live in infamy. It also cemented in the minds of many of us what we have believed for a long time – that you hold your competitor in some contempt. As we turn our eyes toward Hofstra University and the Oct 15 debate, we see many of the same dynamics as we did in

Saturn – Uranus – The Past and Future of the Presidential Election

On election day 2008, Uranus and Saturn will be in exact opposition to each other. That is, they will be directly across from one another on their path around the Sun. The choice has been written in the stars – old and new across from one another. Which way will we go? Saturn is all about tradition, and doing things by the book – all about form and structure. Uranus is new, electric and represents upheaval and change. I don’t have to tell you which candidate is represented by each do I? The fact that we have the elder McCain,

Second Presidential Debate – Showdown in Nashville

When they met for the first presidential debate, both candidates had so few aspects between their natal charts and the planets transiting over Oxford, Mississippi that it was difficult to figure out if anything would happen. I guess that is why it was sedate. This is not true for Oct. 7 and the Nashville debate. There is A LOT going on overhead!If I were advising the Obama campaign astrologically I would tell them this is the best time to try to get under McCain’s skin and allow America to see that famous McCain temper. Transiting Mars is in McCain’s 12th

VP Debate – Sara on Neptune

At the time of the only Vice Presidential debate, Oct 2, 2008 at 8:00 PM Central Time in St. Louis, Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin’s natal Mars will be squaring the transiting Moon. A disharmony between the Moon, which controls emotions, and Mars, named after the ancient god of war – leads to irritability, aggression and argumentativeness. So she might be more inclined to go after Joe Biden during the debate – to play up her “hockey mom toughness.” Sarah’s Mars lies in the conjunction with the her Sun in the 7th house natally (no wonder she is known

Soulsign Astrology

Check out my website! http://www.soulsign.com/practitioners/joan.html started “playing” with astrology when I was in grammar school. I always had a fixation with the planets – Pluto being my favorite (surprise I am Scorpio Sun!) –and yes, Pluto is still a planet to me! I put my astrology “toys” away when I grew up and went into the “real world” – sadly convinced that it was time to do more important things. The universe woke me up in my mid thirties and I began an intensive study of Western astrology. Happily, I was directed to Adam and found my home in “Soulsign.”Modern
