In the News: Madagascar June 26, 1960

Between a famous lion meeting a tragic fate to mysterious washed up airplane wings, Madagascar is being mentioned multiple times in the news of late so I'm posting details for anyone who wishes to set up a natal horoscope for Madagascar which gained independence from France on June 26, 1960 as the Malagasy Republic. Celebrations were held during that morning but as Nicholas Campion mentions in The Book of World Horoscopes, a time of 00:00 hours would be the normal French practice and this gives an Ascendant of 6Ari11.

If you set up the chart, you'll see Madagascar's Midheaven (MC, the most visible point in any horoscope) @5Cap59 and natal Saturn @15Cap57 Rx in the public 10th house, and ruler of Capricorn. I note this because astrological Pluto is one of the major indicators of death and power (both power's use and abuse) and transit Pluto has recently crossed the MC of Madagascar, and has and will again conjoin natal Saturn. From these astrological conditions it is no surprise that such tragic issues are in the news and are affecting Madagascar's public reputation and status (MC). And as you know, both Saturn and Pluto are considered karmic planets that can bring weighty events stemming from the past and into the present. Actually, the two are in friendly, cooperative mutual reception since transit Saturn retrograded back into Scorpio.

Of course there are several other chart factors of note such as chart-ruler Mars in Taurus (2nd house) opposing Neptune Rx in Scorpio in the 8th house of Big Business, Transformation, and Death so perhaps you'll wish to calculate the horoscope of beautiful Madagascar and see what you can see concerning this double Water Sun Cancer-Moon Cancer locale well known for its amazing waterfalls.

Summer Solstice 2012: Sun Cancer-Moon Cancer

On June 20, 2012 the Sun reaches 00Can00:00 and summer begins in our hemisphere. The Moon at that precise moment will position at 15Can so we have a Sun Can-Moon Can flavor for the season with the Moon ruling over all from its own sign of Cancer--home, domestic scene, family, security needs, real estate, shrewdness in business, protection, and a range of every emotion. And since the astrological Moon relates to the physical body, our natural mind-body connection is of the utmost importance along with the gut-immunity link. As Brenda Watson says, "The road to perfect health is paved with good intestines."

Here's a brief video of Brenda Watson lecturing on Probiotics. Perhaps you've seen her lectures on PBS:

Sun Cancer-Moon Cancer (Water-Water = imagination, feelings, nostalgia for the past, going misty with emotions, an ocean of subjectivity, leaks) is a cagey and defensive blend of energies indicating huge mood swings along with brooding or sulking. Yet on its best days there's a talent for inspiring others through art, literature, music, and poetry.

Ordinarily this is a kindly, emotionally intelligent combination yet over-sensitivity is problematic and will affect our gut-immunity connections which can lead to 'leaky gut' syndrome where toxins enter the blood stream causing itchy skin rashes, tummy aches, and dis-ease. Adding to our Cancerian picture is oceanic Neptune now in its own sign of Pisces indicating that leaks, contagion, flooding, tears, and other water-related concerns are on our collective menu for Summer 2012. And of course, the Moon in Mundane Astrology signifies The People and the public--plus, US natal Venus, Jupiter, Sun, and Mercury Rx are in Cancer within the 3--24 degree range of the sign of The Crab making protectionism a constant and traditional issue in public discourse.

Leaky Boats Afloat?

Ask the denizens of the White House because they know something about leaks already and it isn't even Summer Solstice yet! Apparently Summer 2012 may bring more allegations and emotionally disturbing investigations into who leaked what to which journalists with every actor struggling to protect his or her own position and turf as Cancerian-Piscean undercurrents threaten to spiral them down into the depths of ruin and despair. Such is the practice of Politics but who will be tossed under the bus?

Rocks, Stones, and Gardens

Interestingly, the creative Sun Cancer-Moon Cancer blend is natally shared by Tom Cruise, now appearing in the film Rock of Ages (a Saturnian romp of musicality which is very Capricornian for putting lyrics and notes into Saturnian form--even rock music's drug connotation is Saturnian, as in 'stoned', an attempt to lift one's heavy Saturnian mood of depression), Woody Guthrie (This Land Is My Land--very Cancerian and once what we believed as Americans--We the People need to get back that lovin' feeling!), and George Orwell, born during the Balsamic phase of the Moon, the darkened phase of The Prophet.

Now let's see what the Harveys have to provide us in the way of their Images for Integration which refer to the balancing of Sun (conscious) and Moon (unconscious) minds, the left brain-right brain duality:

"A gosling peeks out of its shell as mother goose chases away the farm cat...A theatrical family performs Midsummer Night's Dream in their own garden."

(Sun Sign-Moon Sign, by Charles and Suzi Harvey.)

Arghh! Not Politics Again...

You may wish to view the Horoscope for Summer Solstice 2012 set for Washington DC where you'll see that the Solstice Moon 15Can06 in 7th house conjoins 8th cusp of Big Business, Corporations, Shared Resources, Transformation, Debt, Credit, Insurance, Legacies and the Occult indicating fluctuations in markets, a potential for changes in America's financial condition, and possible moodiness over the economy. Will this relate to the Republican threat to cause another credit downgrade just to make their ideological point? Let's hope not because the Supreme Court is due to release their decision on President Obama's health care act later in June which is liable to cause all sorts of ill feelings to begin Summer 2012.

Solar Eclipse and Jupiter's been kerpow'd! July 21/22, 2009

Well, I was starting the think this Newsletter about this evening's Solar Eclipse would never arrive; oh, and something hit Jupiter:

Space Weather News for July 21, 2009

SOLAR ECLIPSE: The longest total eclipse of the 21st century is about to begin. It starts just hours from now at approximately 9 pm EDT on July 21 (0100 UT on July 22nd). The path of totality crosses many major cities in India and China, setting the stage for possibly the best-observed eclipse in history.

Photos from the path of totality will be posted on SpaceWeather as the event unfolds.

COSMIC COLLISION: Evidence is mounting that something did hit Jupiter no more than a few days ago.

The impact site (a dark "scar" in Jupiter's clouds) was discovered on July 19 by Australian amateur astronomer Anthony Wesley, and NASA astronomers quickly confirmed the find. Infrared photos posted on today's edition of SpaceWeather News are consistent with an asteroid or comet strike on the giant planet. The debris zone in Jupiter's clouds is itself as wide as a small planet, making it an easy target for backyard telescopes.

SPACE WEATHER ALERTS: For less than the cost of a night at the movies, you can get real time space weather alerts on your cell phone and never miss another big solar flare or geomagnetic storm.

Astrologically, I've written so often about tonight's Eclipse at '29 Cancer' that I'm Eclipsed out, both here and on Jude's Threshold (see sidebar of Pages for Eclipse charts.)

But as far as people who share a Sun Cancer-Moon Cancer personality blend, I shall add a quote by such a one, a quote that someone may find useful in this crazy world:

"But I want first of all to be at peace with myself...I want to live an inner harmony, essentially spiritual, which can be translated to outer harmony."
