It has been going direct for a while now (if it wasn't for my occasional personal horary self-reading I wouldn't know that).


I read a creepy story about a family with different numbers of retrograde in their charts. They were involved in an accident. The daughter had like zero or one retrograde and had her head completely destroyed. The mom had two retrograde and was seriously injured. The two sons had four and five retrograde respectively and they were either unharmed or got out of hospital with virtually no scar. It later turned out that the mom was abusive and the son got away from home. The 5-retrograde son later got into some more road rage situations but he always got away unharmed.



I could link to that article if you want. I'm too lazy to go search for it right now But that story really got me, as I also have 5 retrogrades and also got involved in troubles on the street more frequently than I want to. And I also have never taken much damage. The worst I got from a road rage was a big scar on my feet.



Anyway what do you think of retrograde?

I have known at least four Taurus and none of them are obese. One could be considered overweight, but she goes to the gym frequently. One Taurus is even so thin she is the butt of the joke.

Since the Moon's Node is a mathematical construct rather than a physical body, its position is a matter of how you define it. The Moon's nodes are formed by the line where the plane of the Moon's orbit intersects the plane of the Earth's orbit. Projected onto the zodiac, this line creates the Moon's North Node, and exactly 180 degrees from this, its South Node.

Because of a slow twisting motion of the Moon's orbital plane, the nodes move completely around the zodiac in retrograde motion every 18.6 years, or approximately 3 minutes of arc every day. The lunar node position calculated according to this long-term trend is known as the Mean Node. Within this large cycle there is a short-term wobbling of the Moon such that if you projected an orbital plane from the Moon's position at any given moment, the nodes created by the orbital plane would wobble backward and forward in the zodiac over a period of a few days. The lunar node calculated with this short-term wobble added in is known as the True Node.

The two types of node calculation are equally accurate, because over the long run the Mean Node and the True Node cover exactly the same distance in the same time. According to Robert Hand in Horoscope Symbols, "The wobbling nodes are no more "true" than the mean nodes, as they are in their own way just as abstract a concept.

Dr. Farr presented the concept that, although the planets never really reverse course on their own orbital paths, they do reverse direction along the Ecliptic from our Earth-centered, astrological point of view; and, therefore should be astrologically INTERPRETED as being in what he called a "Retrograde state", in comparison with being in a "Direct state".

The "True" setting of an astrological indicator is simply where it's located in the Chart at any given time.

Whereas the "Mean" setting is a mathematical average of how long it takes to complete a full circumnavigation of the zodiac, regardless of direct/retrograde movements of the True settings.

So, the True setting is where an indicator actually IS, in the Now. And the Mean setting is where it eventually WILL be, in the Future.

Saturn, for example, transits the zodiac 0 to 8 minutes of arc per day, stays in one Sign for approximately 2 1/2 years, and returns to its original position in a Natal-chart in about 29 1/2 years. Those are the Mean calculations.

But, we use Saturn's True position at any given time to determine its actual location as an astrological placement.

It seems that PH & co. has no problem with members of the RF making money using the family name. Yet they famously ghosted Meghan’s father for staging paparazzi photos, in an apparent effort to better his image to the world media.

Re: Random Thoughts, strictly Text

In the documentary just aired in the UK entitled Thomas Markle: My Story, he states Harry said he would not have had a heart attack unless he spoke to the media. But Harry, who has been mentored in how to deal with the media his whole life, made an off-hand remark at the beginning of his relationship with Meghan, about the RF being the ‘family she never had.’

It appears there are right and wrong on both sides but Meghan’s Dad has been ghosted by his daughter for making a similar mistake to what PH did.

There will also be a court case this year against the Daily Mail and PH&MM, who are suing the newspaper for publishing a private letter which Thomas Markle published, apparently in response to Meghan’s friend giving a wrong interpretation of it to ‘People’ magazine.

There is again right and wrong on both sides but MM may win the case with the help of benevolent Jupiter in transit in her 7th house. This can also cause healing for PH&MM’s relationship, or the expansion of Jupiter could cause the relationship to end. Time will tell this year if the relationship will end or not.

However, I am reminded of the concept of ‘Being’ and ‘non-duality,’ where once our mind realizes the oneness of consciousness, that there is nothing to forgive and things ‘just happen.’ Once the dust settles in the minds of those involved, the feeling of forgiveness will help to create a feeling of non-duality in all those concerned. Therefore, this situation is a lesson created in order to teach all those involved a lesson.

Although I am aware of the concept of non-duality, I am also aware I have not yet realised it myself and moments of clarity on the matter are fleeting until such a moment where a situation is created for myself to make me permanently conscious.

This will probably be a traumatic event to give it to stick, like this traumatic event being played out on the world stage will effect primarily Thomas Markle on his death bed and MM when she grieves for his death. PH is still in a state of being traumatised by the death of his Mother and has only just begun the adventure of being a Father, this event will surely help when he looks back with a more mature and less sensitive mind in a few years time.

Re: Random Thoughts, strictly Text

When Jupiter or Saturn enters MM’s 8th house, which is currently in transit in her 7th, her father will probably die, he is 72 years old overweight and with a recent heart attack and now a broken heart. This will pave the way for healing to begin with MM but I suspect a whole new life is needed before this lessons is fully completed.

In the next life, maybe Thomas Markle will be PH’s son, who knows because consciousness can and has created everything.

I want to add a sun/Venus conjunction in Taurus is an indication of weight issues. Her venus is in the same 5th house with Mercury and Mars in Taurus.

Edit: In sidereal, her Venus is in its ruler sign, Taurus. Closely looking at both versions of astrology, it looks like I'm right again.

The True Node forms Modernistic aspects at any given time. That's something the Mean Node can't be used for.

Modernistic aspects? What is that?

I decided to switch to using the true nodes after watching David's (not Starling ) video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mw7BxOrTthc

Same as topocentric longitude - reality > scheme.

Speaking of "abstract concepts", the Lines of Celestial Longitude are an abstract way of translating the the locations of celestial objects onto the Ecliptic. And, these "abstract" intersections of those Lines within the zodiacal Chart is foundational to how most of us are reading the Charts.

Celestial longitude is indeed a mean relationship, but only it can represent the real universal/cosmic placements of the planets independent of their natal placements (the twelve so-called houses). - https://www.astrologyweekly.com/foru...&postcount=139
