Sideral Astrology

Today I was studying sideral astrology.
How different people I knew of their birthday could fit into nearly 20 archetypes, during which the sun passes over a year. This deep analysis is making me changing my ideas about the start and end date for each sign/constelation. After all, after some much confusion between sideral and versus astrology, constelational or equal sign astrology, one has to watch several person born for each day of the year and conclude where does one sign begin and end.

For example, there are many people, supposely Taurus in tropical astrology, born in late April, that for me seem definitely Aries, some genious and dictators for example. But people born in early May are defitively Taurus due to their strong sensuality and earthy qualities (this works for celebraties and for my friends)
Again in early July, people do not seem like Cancer, they are too airy and highly active, something that late July born people have not so much. So, I would suggest early July people to be Geminis and late July to be Cancer, and not Cancer and Leo as most tropical astrologers assume.
Definitively arond 16-25th September most people correspond to their Virgo archetype, but before and after this blend into the Leo and Libra energies.
For November, December and January born people, I am still trying to distinguish Scorpio, Sagittarius and Capricorn properties. Sagittarius characteristics seem to be appear all over December, but blending into Scorpio for late November and blending into Capricorn for some late December people. But real Capricorn (ceptic and saturnine people) only seem to appear more often after the new years day.

Please understand the zodiac as a continuum of constelational energies which is not boundary-cut defined but in which a energy merges and blends into the following.

Here it goes the approx loosely correspondence to birthdates:
This may apply for predicting weather conditions, world events and plant growth!
Aries 17 Apr - 1 May (a lot of fiery genious or dictators, or both! are born curiously between 18 and 30 April, such as Hitler, Lenin, Salazar, Saddam Hussein, giving in my humble opinion more credit to sideral astrology than tropical; this fiery place is from the Aries start, in Mira until star Hamal)
Taurus 1 May - 4 Jun (early sideral Taurus gives sensual and extrovert people, until hiades and aldebaran star light; middle and later ones are more serious, critical and thinner people, a bit between taurus and gemini archetypes, from around 12-19th May onwards, after Aldebaran; all are practical and sensual people)
Gemini 5 Jun - 28 Jun (Oríon) (these still seem Gemini)
Gemini 28 Jun- 10 Jul (until early July, particularly by early July in between the gemini figure, all people are definitive Gemini, talkatives restless people)
Gemini emotionals (Canis minor) 11 Jul - 21 Jul (from 11th on, Geminis are more emotional, still artistic-oriented but more of a watery and not so airy mood; would these be Gemini or Cancer? these are born just with the sun outside the gemini figure, on its way into cancer)
Cancer 21 Jul - 2 Aug (particularly until around 1 August, when sun passes through the middle of crab, people are shy and sentitive ones, then more leo-like)
Leo 3 Aug - ~30 Aug ( the Leos seem rather clear all around this time period, particularly in second half of August; leo seems to be located around Regulus star plus 10º for each side)
Leo more virgo-oriented (Sextans) 1- 15 Sep (in early September some seem very concerned with pratical ways, like Virgo, would these be Virgo or Leo? this occurs as sun is leaving leo into virgo)
Virgo 16 Sep - 3 Oct (late Septembers are very clear Virgo prototypes, when sun passes through the Virgo first part)
Early Libras 4 Oct -17 Oct (After Spica, the virgo archetype starts blending into Libra)
Libra 18 Oct - 20 Nov (around 1-15 November are a bit of intense Libra people, social promoting, atractive, easy going, enjoyable, calm, some rather assertive, people; these are a bit more energetic and social after sun crosses the scales in 12 Nov; the strongest people are those born with their sun between the scales)
Scorpio 20 Nov - 30 Nov (shy, committed, intense and deep people, as sun passes after the scales into Antares and the scorpio sting)
Opphicus 30 Nov - 18 Dec (rather diverse group: around 30 Nov these are more open than former scorpios, then around 2-3 Dec again more extrovert and powerful, when sun conjunts Antares, then again scorpio like around early 4-8 December, then more extrovert starting from 10 December, as sun passes right in the figure of opphicus; and still by 17-19 Dec or even 21 Dec, as sun crosses galatic center into Sagittarius)
Sagittarius 19 Dec - 4 Jan (again this group seems a mix of Sag and Capricorn energies, these are social, fun and sport-loving people, but not philosphical, emotional open, especially in early January; maybe this is due to all the mess tropical astrology has caused into our preconceived concepts about signs; particularly intense is the passage of sun above the trapezoid figure of the constelation)
Capricorn 4 Jan - 28 Jan (Aquila) (all capricornian like, some in early Janurary may share sagittarian traces of optimism, thought and independence; for January second half, they tend to be more airy like; this occurs as sun crosses all void space between sagittarius and capricorn constelations)
Aquarius type I (real Capricorn) 28 Jan - 16 Feb (the first are mostly aquarian, particularly by first half of February, strangely this occurs as sun crosses through the capricorn constelation! this are airy, rebel, bright and hard working people, although work-oriented and worrying)
Aquarius type II (real Aquarius) 17 Feb - 10 Mar (these are gradually more piscean, more social and soft guys particularly by first half of March; as sun passes through aquarius figure, these are more detached and less-worring than first aquarian ones)
Pisces shy types (Pisces) 11 Mar - 27 Mar (until 27 March, all are friendly easy going people, most social, soft and easygoing, a few very shy - mostly until 19 March -, a few a bit more extrovert and talkative, maybe due to their risings)
Pisces animated types (Cetus?) 28 Mar - 16 Apr (after 28 March, when sun just passes close to Cetus border, some are fiery already, other piscean, but none that fiery or genial when compared to late April born ones; more piscean types occur with the sun entering again last fraction of pisces constelational figure)


The 13rd constelation in Opphicus which the sun passes in December but of which I still dont know the archetype. Opphicus (~30Nov-17Dec) seems to be a philosophical energy more extroverted than Scorpio, identically to Sagittarius, but more vivid and densily emotional. Sideral Sagittarius (~18Dec-15Jan) seem to create more social people, less serious and wanting to have more fun, at least taking from my wide list of birthdates I have analysed.

Am I a Hydra rising, have my Moon in Sextans or my Venus in Orion?

Accordingly to the ascendant should be not the point where eliptic crosses the horizon, but the constelation itself which crosses eastern point in horizion around the time of your birth.
After all, that WAS the sky during that moment and not the product of a astrology software!

So, we would have 16 risings to choose from: Pisces, Cetus, Eridanus/Taurus, Orion and Monocerus (corresponding to Gemini rising), Canis minor (Procion star, corresponding to Cancer rising), Hydra (a long long constelation which rises east when Leo is also rising), Sextans (when Leo also rises!), Virgo, Serpens Caput, Opphicus, Serpens Cauda, Scutum/Aquila and Aquarius.
Yes, Aries never rises now over eastern horizon, but did it thousand years ago (due to procession movements; the reason why there are no more heros, accordin to lulu.astrology)

Myself have Aquarius-Pisces rising but Sextans descendent, and Opphicus was culminating over south horizon, when I was born. And very curiously, Pluto which maybe 6th house over my astrology software chart, is however setting in western horizon using a sjy simulator software; so it was not in 6th but really in 7th house cusp!)

Furthermore, during somewhat common declinations in orbit, Mars may be in Cetus as well besides Aries, Venus maybe be in Orion and the Moon in Sextans or Hydra! What does this mean???? has some insights on it. Some star astrology books also provide new insights.

Astrology of 2003 EL61 and 2005 FY9

Like I described the possible astrological meaning for new "planets" Sedna, Quaoar, Eris, Ixion, Varuna and centaurs Phollus and Nessus, I will do the same for yet un-named minor planets 2003 El61 and 2005 FY9, both with still unknown size (theirs is still a calculation based in rational assumptions) but eventually as large as Pluto.

2003 EL61 - a magic flash awakener
Looking to my natal chart and transits I have (very curiously) 2003 EL61 conjuted with my 7th Virgo Moon and 2005 FY9 conjunted with my 27ºLeo DSC.
2003 EL61 solely conjucted Pallas (archetype of effort, wisdom and crafts) about 2003 to 2006 when then started sextiling my Sagittarius MC, from 13º Libra.
These were first times of a radical shift in my mind ideas, due partly to spiritual experiences and psycoactive experimentation and then a radical awakening and shitfing on professional aimings.
This may mean then that 2003 EL61 is related to radical shifts, a bit like Uranus, flashes of radical novelty. Furthermore 2003 EL61 is conjunted natally with my Moon, and as such I seek partners and tend to atract partners of radical perspectives. This "planet" may bring also a bit of magic.

2005 FY9 - challenging endurance

2005 FY9 is natally conjucted my DSC and did conjucted my Moon (and 2003 EL61) in 2000-2001 and is now preparing to square my Sag sun, in 25º Sagittarius.
This novel planet seems to brought a spiritual awakening in 2001 which was also much linked and brought by platonic loving atractions I had during that year, due to its conjuntion to natal Moon and natal 2003 EL61. During that year things were a bit plutonic, obsessive and very long suffering. It may therefore be a little bit more like Pluto, bringing slow lasting challenge and events, as it will again bring by 2008-2011 when it squares my natal sun and neptune. 2005 FY9 to me, seems a bit like Saturn as well (and would very well justify its position over my DSC degree).

Astrology of new planets and asteroids

There are six novel trans-neptunian planets. The first two are much farther away than Pluto.

Then there are four asteroids used in astrology (Ceres is more than half the size of Pluto and considering it is much closer, one should clearly include it in natal chart analysis) Aditionally there are some asteroids located between Saturn and Uranus, called Centaurs, such as Chiron, which by itself it is not too big (and maybe one should not attach its meaning as wounded healer just because someone named it as such)

TRANS-NEPTUNE PLANETS-----------------

SEDNA: Initially, I was not sure what was its effect, something idealistic and peaceful
Now, this very very distant ~10000 year rounding planet, takes a role of a bit of neptune-like, showing allowance, allowing a feminine principle. This may be linked to its very long-term cycle around the sun. Only its redish colour dont make sense!

It may be now effecting resources issues for mankind as it travels through Taurus, bringing all these idealistic economy schemes and struggles for ecology protection and global warming. Funny, about one Sedna cycle ago, mankind was eventually through the end of the ice age and atlantida civilization. Sedna, it seems to me, may bring guidance, disease or rest, peace, surely a calm and freeing planet

ERIS, XENA: initially named as a warlike venus, now as a healer of discordia myth
and its myth may make sense. Eris, through either my chart analysis of world events, seems to bring rather charged energies, confrontation of pending issues and sensibility to vibes or powerful things. Bringing harmony or not, bringing diplomacy or not?
Related to world art events? Novel periods in world building arts. Libra traits (may co-rule Libra)
Looking at my Eris transits, may bring eventually powerful images, dreams, colors and charged energies, a half calm half active planet
surely a desire for equilibrium for healing and understanding and concordia (it is of a bright withish colour)
a little bit uranian nature? It disrupted pluto nomenclature as a planet!!!! at a time of reconsiliation and weather changes and surely some people associate Eris to a new Uranus.
Although some people associate it with discordian events, for me it seem it brought heavy dilemas which are now turning into a new revolution of ideas
Note that Eris was and it is still for long in Aries, in a century marked by wars and new starts.
I have both Sedna and Eris in my second house and thankfully now I can explain why I have such a heavy second house nature without any known planet, node or sign in Taurus or 2nd house. The two are heavily aspected in my chart too :-)

In a word, Sedna seems a neptunian allowing planet bringing guidance, Eris a charged changer aiming for reconsiliation and new artistic patterns or harmony

QUAOAR: through my very first look at it, seems to act a bit like Pluto.
Through a generational calm slolwy transforming way, yet very very powerful
Maybe even more transforming than Pluto, but that was my initial judge.
Fateful changes, people and confrontations with things
yes, it may bring slow profound change.
Other astrologers associate with its archetype: return to natural law, sacred, natural world
And for me it surely makes sense, as I sense a scorpio or pisces nature to it
in my chart it created very strong changes, of a global nature, as it transited my MC
note that was discovered shortly after 911

Some people associate Quaoar to a liberator, or a transcended Saturn, maybe a new Jupiter bringing new philosphy, or concerned like Saturn to spiritual security and order instead of material or social security (for me this also made sense when it transited MC as it shattered my world view, awakening spirituality on me)

IXION: first insights: "more discipline oriented, detailed, mentally or organized",
"purposed-oriented, brings insights?" "these last are plutonian like calm, slow planets"
"saturn quality??"

My research found that Ixion is maybe related again to Pluto-like issues, abuses of power, tiranny and liberation. Surely its transits on me were also related to this but more.
Some related it civilized versus natural dilemas (again a heavy part of its transits on my chart), life vs death (still I assume a bit or ordering saturnine atribute to it)

VARUNA: first insights: "mental quality, visions, insights, transformations, plans, aspirations
sagittarian?" well, then I realize I hit on its meaning fully! Varuna seems a beyond visions and aspirations, beyond real and everything, influence. A inspirative Neptune-like. I say the same. I have it right on my IC.

ORCUS: the other side of pluto
first insights: "strong and powerful meanings"
"not as dramatical as last ones but surely exotic"
"far away change and desired dreamt change/manifestation"
"a sagittarian or exagerated pluto?"
"guidance? drastic, may bring violence or confusion/pluto-neptunian quality?"
Now I continue to attribute a underworld atribute to it. Maybe dark for some people, but although strange it was a wise influence as it transited my DSC. (Again Pluto trine the DSC as well at the same time!) R
emember that even it sounds like a different Pluto, it is now moving in tandem in Pluto, so maybe it is just Pluto interfeering. In my chart it coincides with powerful changes. Discovered at a time of terrorism wars. One astrologer said it acts more through external means unlike Pluto which is more internal-related.

In a word quaoar is fateful catharsis, ixion strutucturing, varuna is mental visions, and orcus is exotic change and contact to hidden worlds


NESSUS: artistic? uranian? further away than chiron
cooperation between astrologers and astronomers. Astrologers associate with it a theme of sensual or sexual awakenings, and hidden issues in relationships. Almost non-civilized sensual nature. A bridge to Neptune?

PHOLLUS: a bit venusian, bringing peace, loveness, simplicity. Ok, these were my first thoughts. One astrologer associate with it a fated transcendence learning influence, a bridge from saturn right to pluto.

CHIRON: link between saturn and social and uranian depths nature
HEALER, HEALING ISSUES, promoting lessons, related to conventional vs natural healing methods?


CERES: nurturing, feminine nature, nature, slight venusian nature
taurean?? the "mother"

VESTA: again feminine natures, humble devoting, stewarship and gratitude

JUNO: taurean needs (one astrologers associates the asteroid of soul lovers, true lovers)
possessions, needs, marriage needs WHAT AND WHO OUR LOVE PARTNER WILL BE

PALLAS: effort, wisdom, crafts, active quality, manifesting, ideals and good ideas
achievement (yes, in some charts I could see clearly its wise, crafting influence, a bit virgoan or libran as well?) THE ABILITY TO SEE PATTERNS, AND RE-ARRANJING THINGS

in a word ceres is nurturing, vesta the protective caring feminine and pallas wisdom acting
these seem also very related to feminine universe, equilibrating influence.

Some astrology blogs - Moon Mansions

And it was morning as God stood before his twelve Children, and into each of them planted the seed of human life. One by one each child stepped forward to receive his or her appointed gift......

To you Aries - I give my seed first that you might have the honor of planting it. That for every seed you plant one million more will multiply in your hand. You will not have time to see the seed grow, for everything you plant creates more that must be planted. You will be the first to penetrate the soil of men's minds with My Idea. But it is not your job to nourish the Idea, nor to question it. Your life is action, and the only action I ascribe to you is to begin making men aware of My Creation. For your good work I give you the virtue of Self-Esteem.
... Quietly, Aries stepped back into place.

To you Taurus - I give the power to build the seed into substance. Your job is a great one requiring patience, for you must finish all that has been started, or the seeds will be wasted to the wind. You are not to question nor change your mind in the middle, nor to depend on others for what I ask you to do. For this I give you the gift of Strength. Use it wisely.
... And Taurus stepped back into place.

To you Gemini - I give the questions without the answers, so that you may bring to all an understanding of what people see around them. You will never know why people speak or listen, but in your quest for the answer you will find my gift of Knowledge.
... And Gemini stepped back into place.

To you Cancer - I scribe the task of teaching people about emotion. My Idea is for you to cause them laughter and tears so that all they see and think develops fullness from inside.
For this I give you the gift of Family, that your fullness may multiply.
... And Cancer stepped back into place.

To you Leo - I give the job of displaying my Creation in all its brilliance to the world. But you must be careful of pride and always remember that it is My Creation, not yours. For if you forget this, people will scorn you. There is much joy in the job I give you if you but do it well. For this you are to have the gift of Honour.
... And Leo stepped back into place.

To you Virgo - I ask for an examination of all that humankind has done with my Creation. You are to scrutinize their ways sharply and remind them of their errors, so that through them my Creation may be perfected. For doing this I give you the gift of Purity of Thought.
... And Virgo stepped back into place.

To you Libra - I give the mission of service, that man may be mindful of his duties to others. That he may learn cooperation, as well as the ability to reflect the other side of his actions. I will put you everywhere there is discord, and for your efforts I will give you the gift of Love.
... And Libra stepped back into place.

To you Scorpio - I give a very difficult task. You will have the ability to know the minds of men, but I do not permit you to speak about what you learn. Many times you will be pained by what you see, and in your pain you will turn away from Me and forget that it is not I, but the perversion of My Idea, that is causing your pain. You will see much of man that you will come to know him as animal, and will wrestle so much with his animal instincts in yourself that you will lose your way; but when you finally come back to me, Scorpio, I have for you the supreme gift of Purpose.
... And Scorpio stepped back into place.

Sagittarius - I ask that you make people laugh, for amidst their misunderstanding of My Idea they become bitter. Through laughter you are to give man hope, and through hope turn his eyes back to Me. You will touch many lives if but only for a moment, and you will know the restlessness in every life you touch. To you Sagittarius I give the gift of Infinite Abundance, that you may spread wide enough to reach into every corner of darkness and bring it light.
... And Sagittarius stepped back into place.

Of you Capricorn - I ask the toil of your brow, that you might teach men to work. Your task is not an easy one, for you will feel all of man's labors on your shoulders; but for the yoke of your burdens I put the Responsibility of man in your hands.
... And Capricorn stepped back into place.

To you Aquarius - I give the concept of future that man might see other possibilities. You will have the pain of loneliness, for I do not allow you to personalize My Love. But for turning man's eyes to new possibilities I give you the gift of Freedom, that in your liberty you may continue to serve mankind wherever he needs you.
... And Aquarius stepped back into place.

To you Pisces - I give the most difficult task of all. I ask you to collect all of man's sorrow and return it to me. Your tears are to be ultimately my tears. The sorrow you will absorb is the effect of man's misunderstanding My Idea, but you are to give him compassion that he may try again. For this, the most difficult task of all, I give you the greatest gift of all. You will be the only one of my twelve children to understand me. But this gift of Understanding is for you, Pisces, for when you try to spread it to man he will not listen.
... And Pisces stepped back into place.

Then God said, "You each have part of My Idea.You must not mistake that part for all of My Idea, nor may you desire to trade parts with each other. For each one of you is perfect, but you will not know that until all twelve of you are ONE. For then the whole of My Idea will be revealed to each of you."

And the Children left, each determined to do his job best that he might receive his gift. But none fully understood their task or gift, and when they returned, puzzled, God said...

"You each believe that the other gifts are better. Therefore, I will allow you to trade."

And for the moment each Child was elated as he considered all the possibilities of his new mission. But God smiled as he said...

"You will return to Me many times asking to be relieved of your mission, and each time I will grant you your wish. You will go through countless incarnations before you complete the original mission I have prescribed to you. I give you countless time in which to do it, but only when it is done, can you be with Me."

2010 next economic crash and onwards . PEAK OIL - how to survive

In 2010 a major T-square involving most of planets will occur, and even more surprisingly in the strongest points of the zodiac, the cardinal points.
Starting in 2009 fall and climaxing in summer 2010, Uranus and Jupiter in first degrees of Aries will oppose Saturn and Mars in Libra and all will square Pluto in Capricorn, which did not happened since 1760s, a time that preceeded the american revolution and the french revolution.

Of course, one aspect is never the same. In 2010, the coming T-square will resemble some aspects that happened in the 60s but more similarly to those that happened during the 30s, during the Great Depression. Pluto is now entering Capricorn, first time since 1760s when those important world changes happened. During the Great Depression, Pluto was exactly in its opposite sign, in Cancer.

In 2010, due to a similarly of aspects, it seems rather assured that at least a small major economic crash is coming. Pluto will make this a worldwide change affecting business, governments and the basic structure of society. The Pluto-Uranus aspect (which will happen from 2010 until 2015) will recreate the instability from the revolutionary times of the 30s and the 60s, bringing worldwide tensions and radical change.

It may be climate change, terrorism or war, oil industry collapse, a second big depression or simply a combination of these. Some economic experts already pinpoint a coming economic collapse (we can see its signs begining already- the huge fall of dolar, the house market crash and the huge increase in oil, gold and wheat prices). Some of these point to 2010-2015 the coming crash. In another way, the oil industry is predicted to start declining or even crash around this time, exactly the same period when many people predicted drastic weather changes, while others predicted a novel era beginning.

Pragmatically speaking, a economic crash in 2010 would put oil in prices five ten-fold higher, economic fall, fall of prices, general unempolyment and collapse of goverments and companies, what Pluto in Capricorn may mean after all. But, like Pluto also simbolizes, it will the birth of a new society, bringing new technologies, new ways of living, etc.
When the crash comes, if it comes, we must start preparing growing our own food, using solar or eolic energy, reducing our needs and dramatically changing our habits. All of this seems also a bit of aquarian, which will certainly unfold during Pluto entry into Aquarius. It may be that growing our own food may be mainstream like happened during the 30s or happened in the 90s in Cuba. Or it may bring social chaos and refugees then resorting to those solutions later on. Either way, it will be the first drastic fall of oil industry, since Pluto-Uranus-Saturn will align again since the former crises and Neptune will enter Pisces and then Aries.

Moreover, the sun, MCs, ASCs, moon and other important points of the natal charts of several western countries like the US, Mexico and Canada, UK, Spain, Russia, Germany, France or Portugal , China and Pakistan, almost all Middle East and most Asia southeast will be affected. Please read for more. Less affected countries seem to be Sweden and Finland and South American like Brasil and maybe some parts of Africa.
At least I hope more for a worldwide depression and change than other sort of stronger changes.

Search "self-sufficiency", "self-suffient", "peak oil", "self-reliant", "ecological living", "simply living", "voluntary simplicity", "growing our own food", "alternative energies", "green building", "homesteading", "intentional community", "law of abundance", "co-housing" for some pratical clues and solutions.

By 2025, a new sense of ideal will permeate the world (Neptune entering Aries)
By 2060, when Pluto enter Aries, surely a new age will be starting, since it will resemble such a new cycle compared to that that industrial revolution brought (last time of Pluto in Aries).
