September 9 2013 to September 15 2013

Monday September 9
Degree Ceremony

Saturn is now at the seventh degree of the eighth division of the ecliptic. Astrologers work with twelve of these exactly equal divisions. These in turn are subdivided into 30 'degrees'. Each degree is made up of 60 'minutes'. Saturn began September at 7 degrees, 11 minutes of the eighth division. It has now reached 7'53". And today Mars, which began the month at the second degree and the 49th minute of the fifth division has reached 7'53". The two planets are forming an exact right angle. Among many other things, that could imply more trouble in Syria soon.

The Great Divide

Yesterday I explained how divisions of the sky are subdivided into degrees and minutes. It wasn't an easy piece to read. I could have made it simpler to understand if I had only used the phrase 'zodiac signs'. But I was making a point. What we astrologers call signs are equal divisions of the Ecliptic, (the Sun's apparent path through the heavens). But the same phrase also applies to what astronomers call the constellations that also lie along the Ecliptic. These though, are not so equally spaced and the precise start and end points are subject to some debate.

Wednesday September 11

For some while now, astronomers and astrologers alike have been getting excited about Comet Ison. I can't remember the last time we had so much talk, so long in advance, of a bright, historic vision. According to all calculations, it should be starting to show up in telescopes later this month and might even become a naked eye object next month. But comets are notoriously unpredictable and this one is turning out to be extremely idiosyncratic. Over the past two months it has been beyond observation, 'behind the Sun.' Now it has reappeared, fainter than the experts expected.

Saw Point

Yesterday I explained how the experts are revising their opinions about how bright Comet Ison will be later this year. Some say it is now unlikely to become a daylight object. Others even wonder if it will be visible to the naked eye by night. The truth is, we still don't have enough information to know. You may be wondering why I am reporting the scientific uncertainty rather than just making a prediction. But the point here is that I am an astrologer, not a psychic. This is a bit like asking a carpenter to make his own saw!

Tell Tails

When Comet Ison graces our skies from November onwards, it may be a streak of light that stops people in their tracks when they notice it. Or it may just be a faint object that can only be seen under perfect conditions. As I explained yesterday, even those who hope to use it as a predictive tool can't predict whether it will be usable as such! Comets, as some astronomers say, are like cats. They have tails and they do as they please! Traditional planetary alignments are considered equally significant regardless of visibility. But with comets, visibility is everything!

Your Week Ahead

This week takes us closer to the time when days and nights are of equal length. For those in the Southern Hemisphere, it's the Spring Equinox. For those in the Northern Hemisphere, the Autumn (or Fall) Equinox. But, seasonal differences apart, the cosmic phenomenon has one meaning. It speaks of a time to redress imbalances and address inequities. That's why so many of us, no matter where we may live, are now feeling inspired to start clearing out our clutter. And for some, this week's Full Moon may add an extra edge of emotional urgency to that universal impulse!
