Pluto in Aquarius – The Global Spiritual & Psychological Implications

Pluto in Aquarius, the destroyer, has entered the lesser burning ground to prepare the way for The Pouring forth of the Waters of Life. The Aquarian Labor of Hercules: The Cleansing of the Augean stables has begun! Two of the other non-sacred planets—Mars and Pluto—function in connection with the sacral centre (Mars) and the solar plexus (Pluto). This latter planet becomes active in the life of the man who is “becoming alive in the higher sense, his lower nature passes into the smoke and darkness of Pluto, who governs the lesser burning ground, in order that the man may live in truth in the higher land of light. – Esoteric Astrology, pg. 78 I would like to suggest that Pluto is the hose & shovel of Hercules. Over these next 20 years, he will bring about the destruction of many outmoded ideas and limiting concepts in humanities consciousness & psyche: It will destroy limiting concepts in the realm of science which are holding back a truer understanding of the nature of reality. It will destroy outmoded concepts in the realm of Government and clear away some of the more totalitarian and authoritarian elements and personalities. The effects will enable humanity […]

Esoteric Astrology – Sacred and Non-Sacred Planets and Veils

Lately I’ve been giving a lot of thought to understanding just what are the Astrological Veils and why certain non-sacred planets veil. We are told that the following planets are non-sacred: Earth, Moon, Mars, Pluto and the Sun, and veil the three sacred planets: Uranus, Neptune and Vulcan. See the full discussion in Esoteric Astrology by Alice Bailey, page 506-510. A few key excerpts are here: The effect of the influences of a sacred planet or a non-sacred one are very different, for one will affect primarily the life in the three worlds whilst a sacred planet will aid in the processes of affecting the fusion of soul and body, of consciousness and form; it will also produce the quickening of the intuition (the spiritual soul) which is the lower aspect of the Monad…. The sacred planets are: Vulcan, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Uranus… The non-sacred planets rule the: 1st, 4th, 5th and 8th houses and these correspond to the four aspects of the “lower man” or human personality and his 4 lower bodies: Physical, Etheric, Astral and Mental bodies plus a 5th which is a fusion called the Personality. In order to properly understand veils, one must have a […]

Pluto – The Transition From Capricorn To Aquarius

I’ve been thinking a bit about the effects of the transition of Pluto in Capricorn to Pluto in Aquarius and I believe we can already somewhat see some of the signs. 1) Pluto is a planet of both power and the power to transform. It is a destroyer.  It destroys not by smashing with a hammer, but by going down deeply into situations and lifting hidden things up into the light of day so that they are seen for what they are and can be transformed. This “power” aspect of its energy “empowers” whatever it touches. Good as well as bad structures. It is like electricity which is neutral and will power up any machine good or bad. Essentially it stimulates the life at the center of whatever it touches and forces it to grow and evolve despite itself. This tends to initially overstimulate the bad outer aspects and which eventually blow themselves apart. When these bad structures are institutions or corporations or governments or people they tend to get cocky and overreach and expose some of their more nefarious hidden agendas. And then, being exposed, they are forced by outside forces (or inner ones) to reform and transform. If […]

Astrology of Ezekiel & Why It Has Absolutely Nothing to Do With UFOs

The increasingly prevalent Urban Legend  that the first chapter of Ezekiel is an example of a UFO sighting has become a pet peeve of mine. It has been a staple of the Ancient Aliens and Christian Ufology TV shows and Podcasts for years. But now, one increasingly hears it mentioned on mainstream news by Bible Belt Congressman who are being interviewed about the recent Congressional hearings on UFOs or the Navy’s acknowledgement that it experiences frequent UAP/UFO incursions into its air space. As someone with some understanding of classical spiritual texts, Kabbala and astrology I find this theory both amusing and also moderately annoying. This article will attempt to explain why Ezekiel has absolutely nothing to do with UFOs. Hopefully this article will dispel some of the nonsense around the subject by showing that Ezekiel is a spiritual teaching that uses symbol and allegory to teach its message. The full paper which is as scholarly as this author can make it is attached here: Ezekiel Research Paper (pdf) Showing Why It Is NOT About UFOs The longer article discusses the allegorical and symbolic nature of Ezekiel as a typical example of ancient spiritual teachings. It attempts to show how the […]

Thoughts on Astrological Cycles, the USA, and War

This article started as an investigation of astrological cycles relating to the birth horoscope of the United States in an effort to develop “historical proofs” for the Tibetan (Djwhal Khul, D.K.) Master of the Wisdom’s statement that the USA has a Gemini Sun with Aquarius Rising (Destiny of the Nations by Alice Bailey, pg. 51-52 & 82-83). It evolved into an historical analysis proving the efficacy of Astrology and the the role played by Uranus and Pluto in the psychology of the USA and world events, with implications for the upcoming period between now (Mar. 24, 2022) and 2036. Astrologers conventionally cast the United States Natal chart using the July 4, 1776 signing of the Declaration of Independence for the birth date. But this date produces a Natal Sun in the sign Cancer and is in conflict with D.K.’s statement of a Gemini sun, implying that July 4th is not the correct “Birth Date”.  However, those with an historical understanding of the period can find better and more esoterically valid dates. This author finds the period of June 7-11, 1776 to be very interesting. Let us look at history and cycles and see if we cannot substantiate DK’s statement. For […]

Part of Fortune Calculation

After I added Part of Fortune to iPhemeris I began getting emails from users complaining that their “Part of Fortune was wrong”. It was rather annoying and demonstrated that many do not do their homework, and simply use the tools without really understanding the why’s and wherefore’s. Here’s hoping I can get people sorted out on this…. The history of the Part of Fortune is really quite interesting and the calculation commonly considered correct is a perfect example of an error in translation becoming a fact! The Part of Fortune is one of the Arabic Parts, which are quite old and according to this WikiPedia article date back to Pre-Hellenistic times. How old they really are is not clear and cannot be proven by conventional means, but all good students of the Ageless Wiz, know that Astrology is very, very, very ancient indeed (probably as old as humanity itself) and that certain schools of Astrologers in India, claim to have written records of their Astrological observations going back over 100,000 years! Personally I don’t doubt them, and of course dead brained academics think that is ridiculous, but what do they know! Most of them still say we were running around in tiger skins a mere 7 or 8,000 years ago…. Then we found Göbekli […]
