Ellen’s Two Cents: June 26, 2012

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

Tweet Now that both Saturn and Venus are essentially motionless in the sky, there is a feeling of watching and waiting.

Gemini Sparks Fly

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

Tweet The Moon is rapidly approaching to the longitude of the Sun. At 5:09 pm Eastern, they will be so tightly aligned that the Moon’s shadow will block a portion of the Sun’s surface if you are standing on the right corner of the Earth. Such an alignment is called a solar eclipse. Astrologers have […]

Pluto Turns…

Saturday, April 9th, 2011

Tweet Astrology is literal. When a planet pivots and changes direction it literally marks a turning point. Today Pluto literally changes direction as it begins it five month retrograde journey (it turns direct in mid-September). Unlike rapidly moving planets like Mercury, a Pluto station, that point when it appears to slow down and stop before […]

It’s Not Heavy; It’s Saturn
