View Full Version : Vulcan

I've read somewhere that the Planet Vulcan was predicted to be discovered soon. It's supposed to be the true ruler of Virgo. The Lame God/ The God of Thunder- it's supposed to have some sort of disability or lameness to it. Could it be that Chiron is actually what the prediction was talking about? The Wounded Healer and The Lame God seem to have a lot of the same qualities. Just curious.

That's an interesting concept. Have you considered exploring what Barbara Hand Clow and Marting Lass and Zane Stein might have to say about that possibility? Perhaps you might try connecting with them and successfully begin a dialogue that might be addressing a question others share. That being the possibility it will bring more folks to think and maybe consider why or why not. I encourage you to try. ;)

Personally, I don't accept 'Vulcan' at all.
None the less, I thought you might find this link interesting:

I remember reading over books in libraries (that I cannot remember titles or authors of) back in the 70s and early to mid 80s that included astrologers who either digressed themselves with the excitement of someone awaiting new discoveries or mentioning others who seemed to respond that way. Always it speaks to me that there is something mature in the flexibility to stand in the middle of one's experiences of gaining knowledge and wisdom and know that while it is amazing what an astrologer can learn, it is also awe striking to consider what each of us is yet to learn. Astrology along with individuality are both Uranian issues. As we connect with both we can bring value to our experience as Astrologers. Developing curiosities feeds the hunger and thirst for knowledge and this builds progressive development in any discipline worthy of a lifetime of interest.
We each develop in different areas based upon our individual interests. For anyone who knows me personally in the part of life that doesn't include Astrology, it has never been shocking when I chose to reveal my experiences that I would have a focus on spirituality, lessons for life or personality. As a minister with emphasis on spiritual life development and an openly expressed interest in personality types who occasionally divulges an interest in Enneagrams, my life in Astrology isn't so much a shock.
Draco is a wonderful example well known for his expertise in Horary. Regardless of where someone is in the development of a personal focus on the stars, it reflects their individuality. Sometimes the mere act of a minor investigation that may never result in a major focus but it can develop your personal process of how you approach a special area of study within Astrology.
Draco's article referenced is quite intriguing and hearing what others have to say is a great guidance, always listen to your inner nature as you decide what you will study because it will always come easier and allow you to go further perhaps than anyone before you. Too, as you look at a chart, always remember you can encourage someone and help move them forward into the best parts of their potential if you are privileged enough to be given their birth data and respectfully heard.
Just some thoughts from someone who has always found value in the little diversions along the way of life. They tend to sharpen our vision so we might know what it is we're looking for in a way that only hints of the confidence we will have once we are on the right road and know it for sure. I'm not trying to overspiritualize Astrology. As humans because we all have a soul and it tends to either grow or deteriorate , a perspective that includes a conscious recognition of that dynamic shapes my views. I know we don't all share the same ones. This in no way is a dogmatic statement that distances me from those who see things differently. Curiously though I would like to know if any other Astrologers here think similarly about any of these ideas.
