TRANSCRIPT Episode 200

 Good day, invisible pal ,April right here, and the date right this moment is September 18th, 2023. Welcome to Episode 200 of the Massive Sky Astrology podcast.

It’s a little little bit of a quiet sky this week. So earlier than we get began with right this moment’s episode, I’ve obtained simply a few issues to let you know about.

To start with, this 12 months’s Podathon was an incredible success! We did handle to lift sufficient cash to cowl bills to provide a whole 12 months’s price of episodes, together with the additional Podathon episodes and even the bonus episodes for donors. It’s utterly wonderful to me that every 12 months I put out the phrase – the podcasting bat sign, if you’ll – and that the listeners heed the decision and ship precise cash to provide this podcast! What can I say apart from, thanks. It’s humbling.

You recognize, I observed this 12 months what number of donors have contributed to each single Podathon and I’m going to be including that little piece of knowledge once I give them their annual shout out. And whereas I’m fascinated about it, listener Shellie Crow, who I shouted out on Episode 199 is one among these contributors who has made a contribution to each single Podathon for the reason that first Podathon in 2020. Shellie, thanks a lot.

The drawing for prizes was held on September twelfth and I emailed the winners on September thirteenth. So right here have been the winners for the drawing.

Thanks once more to everyone who made a contribution. It’s really appreciated. And naturally, everybody who donated $10 or extra will get entry to my donors-only, bonus episodes that can come out on the Equinoxes and Solstices. The primary one for the Libra Equinox, in reality, shall be arising this week.

Now, there’s something else particular that I wished to speak about this week, and that’s that that is the two hundredth episode of the Massive Sky Astrology Podcast! I began this present again in November 2019 with my co-host, Jen Braun. And after we hit 100 episodes in October of 2021, we produced an episode with loads of fond flashbacks and laughs and journeys in our Wayback Machine. I’ll hyperlink to that episode within the present notes so as to take pleasure in having a look again with us.

The present moved to a single host format, that will be me, on January thirtieth, 2022, and since then I’ve produced 92 exhibits, together with two Podathons. We obtained a lot nice suggestions as a cohosted present, and I actually didn’t know fairly how issues would go as soon as I used to be alone. However I’m actually proud to say that the listenership retains going up, and I’ll have a good time 4 years of the podcast on November nineteenth. I hope that you’ll be right here celebrating with me.

And now for this week’s present!

This week, the Solar points Neptune and Pluto, a Sagittarius First Quarter Moon is ideal for a leap of religion, and we formally enter Autumn within the Northern Hemisphere, and Spring within the Southern Hemisphere, because the Solar reaches its Libra equinox.

Solar opposed Neptune (Sep. 19, 2023, 4:17 am PDT)

The week begins with the Solar’s opposition to Neptune on September nineteenth at 4:17 a.m. Pacific Time at 26º16’ Virgo and Pisces. The Sabian image for the Solar is 27 Virgo, Grand dames at tea. And the image for 27 Pisces is A Harvest Moon. And I do know we’ve had an opposition on these identical symbols comparatively not too long ago. It was most likely when Mars opposed Neptune. In any occasion, that Sabian image of the “grand dames at tea” provides me a imaginative and prescient of social norms and doing issues in a correct and chic manner, versus A Harvest Moon, the Sabian image for 27 Pisces, which speaks to that wildish lunar understanding that we have now at a Full Moon, a Harvest Moon.

Now this might additionally imply that within the means of attempting to get issues executed simply so, as we regularly do when the Solar is in Virgo, they may go a bit of bit off the rails because the Solar makes this opposition to Neptune. It appears the extra we attempt to strategy issues in a cautious, methodical, detail-oriented manner, the extra issues simply form of go in their very own course.

I believe what we all the time need to be taught throughout Neptune instances is to form of settle for that typically, we will’t precisely plan for the best way issues are going to go. And that, in reality, there’s something of the spirit of discovery that comes after we go off the crushed path, after we go outdoors of what we plan to do and kind of interact with the forces round us. Go alongside for the experience and see what may come up that we would not have actually thought-about.

Solar trine Pluto (Sep. 20, 2023, 10:21 pm PDT)

Then on September twentieth at 10:21 PM Pacific Time, the Solar trines Pluto at 27º59’ Virgo and Capricorn. The Sabian image for the Solar is 28 Virgo, which is usually written as A bald headed man who has seized energy. In its easiest type, it was only a bald-headed man, however I’m truly gonna have a look at the expanded model of this image at this Solar trine to Pluto, as a result of it’s such delineation for the Solar in facet with Pluto. I consider {that a} mixture like this one says, this can be a time when our Virgo work, and sometimes Virgo describes the method of working that isn’t essentially heralded and celebrated, the place we’re toiling away quietly, targeted on simply doing our greatest attainable work. However when that Solar in Virgo comes along with Pluto, and particularly in Capricorn, which is a really highly effective signal, I believe that is all the time a suggestion that this can be a time when, if we have now been doing our greatest work, that we truly get acknowledged for it.

Sagittarius First Quarter Moon (Sep. 22, 2023, 12:32 pm PDT)

And now for the Moon Report. It begins with a Sagittarius First Quarter Moon on September twenty second at 12:32 p.m. Pacific time at 29º32’ Sagittarius, on the Sabian image 30 Sagittarius, The Pope. Now a First Quarter is all the time the part of the Moon when one thing has to occur, whether or not we take motion on one thing that was initiated on the new Moon, or whether or not one thing is resolved on our behalf. The First Quarter is when issues get transferring. Sagittarius is an indication of optimism and perception, so I believe that is the proper First Quarter Moon to take a leap of religion.

This can be a Sagittarius lunation in a lunar part household cycle that started again on December 23, 2022 on the New Moon at 1º32’ Capricorn. And the entire different main lunations on this lunar part household cycle are in Capricorn. That is the one one which’s on the very finish of Sagittarius.

The New Moon in Capricorn could be very very like making New Yr’s resolutions, and deciding what your goal is for the approaching calendar 12 months. So, the issues that you simply have been fascinated about… And I can keep in mind this one actually clearly as a result of I used to be sick as a canine. I had gone out of city and flown for the primary time in three years and all the remainder of it. And I got here again, and in the course of the time of 12 months, once I usually could be taking per week off from work, and resolve what it was I wished to do within the 12 months forward in my enterprise – Capricorn – I obtained terribly in poor health, so I wasn’t in a position to do any of that.

Now the First Quarter in that cycle is that this First Quarter Moon. And it says, you realize what, perhaps you didn’t get an opportunity to take a seat down and actually plot all the things out the best way you’ll have appreciated to have executed at a New Moon in Capricorn. However now and again, should you simply take a leap of religion, should you simply take some step within the course of what you assume you may wish to do, then it could actually work out rather well for you.

This Sagittarius First Quarter Moon on the Sabian image The Pope, is a few spiritual chief that can be the chief of a rustic. So, the best way I’m studying this image for this First Quarter, as a part of a Capricorn Lunar Part household, is that it is very important not simply have worldly targets and goals, however to be strongly motivated by some form of perception or precept. And I believe that this First Quarter is a chance to mirror on that.

The opposite essential moments on this Lunar Part Household Cycle are the Full Moon on June twenty first, 2024 at 1º7’ Capricorn and the Final Quarter Part on March twenty second, 2025 at 2º5’ Capricorn. So you’ll be able to word these in your calendar, and that’s when your plans for long run success will actually start to come back into focus, so as to make one final push at that Final Quarter and produce it to fruition.

Void-of-Course Moon durations

Let’s have a look at the Void of Course Moon durations for this week. On September twentieth, the Moon in Scorpio sextiles Pluto at 3:21 a.m. Pacific Time. It’s void-of-course for a bit of below 4 hours earlier than it enters Sagittarius at 7:06 a.m. As transiting Pluto is stalled out right here in the previous few levels of Capricorn by means of the start of January, we’re beginning to see repeated messages within the Void-of-Course Moon durations, as a result of so most of the Void-of-Course Moons are starting with a side to Pluto.

That is a few theme that I’ve form of been coming again to in latest weeks, and it has to do with controlling our emotional nature as a way to wield extra energy on the planet. Moon in Scorpio is so passionate, feels issues so intensely and deeply. And when it’s connecting with Pluto in Capricorn, the problem is to carry these emotions in test as a way to attain some form of goal represented by Pluto in Capricorn. Principally, it’s about controlling our feelings as a way to obtain larger empowerment.

On September twenty second, the Moon in Sagittarius squares the Solar in Virgo. That’s our First Quarter Moon at 12:32 p.m. Pacific Time. It’s void after all for just a bit below one hour after which enters Capricorn at 1:20 p.m.

The stress between Sagittarius and Virgo is sort of all the time a pressure between pondering huge, which is Sagittarius’ regular mode, and form of pondering small, which is Virgo’s realm. Now, I don’t imply small in an insignificant manner. I imply issues intimately, at form of a molecular degree. There’s the outdated saying, you’ll be able to’t see the forest for the bushes. And in that saying, it could be Virgo that’s actually kind of counting every tree. And Sagittarius is seeing the entire forest as one.

So I’d say that this Void-of-Course Moon interval permits us a brief little window of 1 hour to ponder the methods wherein we could be lacking the large image as a result of we’re getting too caught up in particulars.

On September twenty fourth, the Moon in Capricorn makes a conjunction with Pluto at 1:05 p.m. Pacific Time. It’s void after all for about three and a half hours after which enters Aquarius at 4:29 p.m. So, once more, just like the Moon in Scorpio, the Moon in Capricorn is concerning the methods wherein we comprise our feelings. And I’d say the Moon in Capricorn has a bit of simpler time doing that than the Moon in Scorpio.

However the Moon in Capricorn coming along with Pluto is, once more, “You’ve gotten denied your self many issues,” Pluto says to the Moon in Capricorn. “And now, I’ll reward you with energy.” It’s a extremely highly effective Void-of-Course Moon for altering all types of habits or approaches to issues. As a result of Capricorn is assigned with loads of willpower. And the Moon in Capricorn, once more, is absolutely good at holding itself in test. So, nearly any form of behavior you wish to break, or new wholesome habits you wish to develop, or letting go of outdated feelings which might be now not serving you, good for this Void-of-Course Moon interval.

Libra Equinox (Sep. 22, 2023, 11:50 pm PDT)

On September twenty second at 11:50 p.m. Pacific Time, the Solar enters Libra. That is the Libra Equinox, and it’s the start of autumn within the Northern Hemisphere and spring within the Southern Hemisphere. This can be a harvest time of 12 months right here within the Northern Hemisphere. And I consider the Libra time because the Full Moon part of the 12 months. If we expect energetically of the pure world starting on the Aries equinox, and now we’ve gone by means of half the 12 months since then, and now’s when issues are revealed. What was it that we initiated with a lot zeal and vitality and zest at that Aries equinox? What form has it taken? And the way are we seeing issues now?

We’re midway by means of what we started on the Aries equinox. And now we will see what we initiated then. And, what we took motion about on the Most cancers Solstice. And what we’ll want on the Capricorn Solstice to good, overview, superb tune, in order that by the point we get to the subsequent Aries equinox, we’ve accomplished a full and fulfilling cycle.

Libra can be the signal of relationship, and others will typically mirror our personal points. Take an in depth look because the Solar goes into Libra, and as we transfer in the direction of the Libra New Moon at what you’re seeing within the individuals closest to you. Not essentially even all the time in your interplay with them, however the issues that they’re going by means of, the issues that they’re attempting to perform, the challenges that they’re going through. As a result of typically different individuals are taking part in out issues which might be occurring in our personal charts, and it can provide you a chance to be a greater pal, a greater accomplice for them, but in addition to make use of it as a possibility to mirror on what you may must be taking good care of.

Listener Query: The South Node with different planets or factors

On this week’s listener query, a listener whose identify is withheld by request asks, “As a followup to listener Halley the Comet’s Episode 188 Lunar Node query, what’s the clue given by the universe when one’s south node is in the identical home or signal as one’s Solar or Ascendant? Is that this an admonishment to reject the message of each feel-good film of the 12 months and knock it off with the “simply being your self”?

Moreover, what are finest practices in utilizing astrological timing with lunar nodes? Ought to I signal a brand new lease when transiting North Node is conjunct my natal fourth home cusp? Ought to I hit ship on the net job software type when transiting North Node is conjunct my natal midheaven? Ought to I serve divorce papers on my astrology disparaging husband when transiting South Node is conjunct my natal seventh home cusp?”

April: Properly, thanks, my invisible and nameless pal. Now, the South Node, as alert listeners will recall, is kind of the outline of the qualities we should always purpose to transcend in favor of the North Node qualities which recommend paths for progress. And I do encourage individuals to return to Episode 188 and hearken to that listener query and my response.

Now, many astrologers paint the South Node of the Moon within the bleakest attainable phrases. I’m not one among them. I consider the South Node’s place as describing the place we’re too comfy and wish to make use of our inherent items to transcend the consolation zone in order that we will transfer ahead.

The best way I typically clarify this to my purchasers is, should you’re 12 years outdated and residing at dwelling, your mother is cooking all of your meals, doing all your laundry, nicely, that’s commonplace. It’s not a foul factor. However, should you’re nonetheless in the identical scenario if you’re 42, nicely, we all know you’ve form of gotten caught in your consolation zone and also you’re not rising.

However at the very least to my mind-set, the South Node of the Moon doesn’t characterize an evil place, and it’s not essential to throw out all the things that’s related to its signal or home. You simply can’t let your self get caught there. So the planets or factors you might have in the identical home or signal of the South Node can truly assist with getting you out of that consolation zone should you make a aware effort.

The Solar in the identical home or signal of the South Node may point out that your willpower and your charisma, your sense of self, can be utilized to get you out of that South Node so long as you select to make use of it that manner. Now it could even be simple to get away with simply form of spinning your wheels within the South Node by counting on all of these charming photo voltaic qualities that may form of allow you to get away with not altering.

As for the timing issue, I can’t say I’ve checked out it in an excessive amount of depth. I can report, anecdotally, that on the day the North Node made a conjunction with Jupiter proper on the midheaven of my beginning chart, the profession level, I obtained a extremely great profession enhance and validation. However it was much less about sending issues out in that case than pretty issues coming in. And I imply, that would have been the Jupiter issue as nicely. However the North Node will typically, I believe, deliver us good issues which were constructing for the whole lot of its 18-year journey by means of the zodiac.

So, one factor to recollect concerning the nodes is that they’ve an extended cycle, in order that they gained’t make a conjunction to something within the chart greater than each 18 years. However, what you may wish to mess around with is to test the transiting Moon every month, and see if good issues come your manner when it’s crossing over the North Node in your beginning chart. That might be a time of the month when nice issues which were making their solution to you for some time lastly present up at your door.

Properly, I hope that helps, nameless pal.
