Invitation to : Astrology Webinar on 12th March’12.

Venus trine & transit

February started with a Mars-opposition-Venus. On the 15th Feb, Venus-squared-Pluto!! That energy overshadowed Valentine’s day.. Guess what? 14th March is looking brilliant. Venus-trines-Mars! (good) Venus-conjuncts-Jupiter (auspicious). ..and Venus-trines-pluto (Hot n intense!)..and and..Mars-tines-Jupiter.. (project and expand!)…and following day (15th Match), Mars-trine-pluto (more heat and passion..and raw sex!!) That’s not all. We are building up the expectations of the Venus-transit of the Sun, due to take place on 6th June!

On the other hand, we have got an intense aspect of Uranus-square-Pluto and Jupiter-square-Neptune , taking place on 24th/ 25th of June. Squares in astrology are the most excruciating ones that agitate us into taking action on pain of internal stress (not even oppositions are that challenging. They just require compromises and balances).

I’ve been exploring western astrology for over 2 decades. I’ve written weekly forecasts for AgeNet in the mid-90’s, provided private Chart & interpretations, and have freely given transit advise for close family & pagan friends for many years. My personal interests are in forecasting, and in what I call Astro-magic (using charts and transits to do personal magical work – not quite chart-correcting, but similar in a magical way).

The upcoming *double-grand trines is one not to be missed for personal work… especially when beneficial planets are involved. Let’ be honest- we can all do with more fortunes, wealth, luck and love. (*grand trine happens between 3 planets, and a double-grand-trine is when 2 of these happening at the `same time’).

So I like to share my insights on these, on how you can tune into these stellar energies and benefit from them in your lives.
Join me in a special webinar – totally ** free! Post questions beforehand. Log-in, tune in, phone in ..and listen.. watch…and even interact via chat with other

listeners! (Why Free? because astrology is a private calling, and these very trines are compelling me to share them. There is plenty of energies and good fortunes in the known universe to benefit all lives – we don’t need to hog, hide or hijack any of it).

Here’s the link for the Webinar.. Just go take a look now..
And on the night, click in to `listen to webinar’ and …listen. It’s that easy.

So, I hope to speak to you on the night in the net or via phone / skype.In case some of you are thinking that you don’t know astrology, transits, aspects.. Don’t panic. The webinar page has a link to an astrology article that gives all a simple beginners guide. In addition, I will spend a little but important time covering the basics of astrology in the webinar itself. Besides which, knowledge of astrology is not required at all, for you to benefit from it. Most of us drive a car but not all know how the machines work under the bonnet. Same with astrology. You can use it, without knowing the details of its mechanics.

Bright Blessings & great fortunes

Mars-Venus factor analysis for Valentine’s Day

Well, 14th of February..  Valentine’s Day, right?   How many singles are feeling lonely? And how many in relationships are feeling pressured to perform (not just in bed..  but in pleasing their lover / romantic partner).

astronomically, it’s not looking good am afraid.

February started with a Mars-opposition-Venus.   Mars is already (recently) begin to retrograde in the earth sign of Virgo (It will be doing this till 14th April  😦    One saving grace (not that planets do that) is ..Venus is in Aries at the moment..     So it may be a case of the Ladies feeling the heat, while the men are stuck in some earthy chores, duties, work..etc.

On the 15th Feb, Venus-squares-Pluto!!   That energy is going to overshadow Valentine’s day..  Arhhhgg!   Yeap, people.. expect all sorts of sexual mis-adventures, probes and power-struggles!   Expect little things to make things worse.  So measure what you say!   Mercury just entered Pisces.   Communication ain’t gonna be clear… and if anything might prove to be airy-fairy   (or poetic?!)

Guess what? 14th March is looking brilliant.    Venus-trines-Mars!   (good)    Venus-conjuncts-Jupiter (auspicious).   ..and Venus-trines-pluto (Hot n intense!)..and and..Mars-tines-Jupiter..  (project and expand!)…and following day (15th Match), Mars-trine-pluto (more heat and passion..and raw sex!!)

My advise..  postpone Valentine’s Day to 14th March 2012.  🙂

Jupiter-Moon-Venus photo

Two days ago, I was out in the local park, doing some filming (some video tutorials for the e-witch course). And on my way back home, looked up and saw the crescent moon & venus, and a little further away the planet Jupiter.

I was able to identify them as such because the ephemeris gives planetary positions, as well as moon positions for every day. And on some occasions, when the moon moves closer to planets, it’s easy to work out which bright `dot’ is a planet and not one of the many hundreds of stars in the sky.

So here’s the Jupiter (top left)  1’5″ Taurus, and crescent moon (right) ..about 4′ Pisces and Venus ( closer to moon) at 13’37” Pisces.

Photo taken with just an ordinary digital camera, on 25th January 2012, around 5pm (GMT) from Beddington Park, South London.

You can still see these stellar objects in the night sky.

By the way, 14th March’12 is going to be very special…that’s when Jupiter and venus conjunct (9’37” Taurus).  Moon will be wanning then and in Sagittarius.  (On that day,  there is also a venus-trine-mars, venus-trine-pluto, mars-trine-jupiter…It’s going to be a very auspicious day… magically, astrologically).

ps. If you are going to use this photo, can you pls mention that it was taken by `Mani Navasothy’? Thanks.

pps. The Eclipse Magic e-workbook (with full transcript of the webinar added) is coming along..  Will be published in a few months, in time for the next set of Eclipses.  There ‘s also some info in it – magical workings, for the upcoming venus-transit of the Sun (happening on 6th June).

Stellar Event of 2012 – Transit of Venus

TRANSIT of VENUS    (6th June 2012)

The biggest astronomical event of 2012 – that both Scientists and Astrologers are talking about – is the Venus transit of the Sun!   This is where the planet Venus is going to be `seen’ passing in front of the Sun.  (It’s like a Solar Eclipse – where the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun and blocks out the Sun temporarily..  But because of the stellar distances involved, Venus will be seen as a little spot moving across the width of the Sun.  (Warning: do not look at this with naked eyes or any optical devices. It will blind you). It happens every 100+ years or so, and so is very unique.  It happens in pairs – and what we are about to see in 2012 is the 2nd of the pair (first of this pair was in 2004, and lasted 6 hrs!).  Next one will be in the year 2117 – and none of us alive today will see it again!!

“Transits of Venus are among the rarest of predictable astronomical phenomena. They occur in a pattern that repeats every 243 years, with pairs of transits eight years apart separated by long gaps of 121.5 years and 105.5 years .”  Says the Wikipedia article.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transit_of_Venus

I am in the process of writing about the astrological symbology of this, as well as the Eclipse-Magic that can be done centered around the Transit of Venus.  The `Eclipse-Magic e-workbook‘ will be published in early 2012.   Keep an eye on my website  http://www.craftandmagic.org/ for details of this in January.

ps. Reminder:   BBC Tv’s  Astronomy show  `Stargazing Live!’    returns in January 2012  – for 3 nights – 16th, 17th & 18th January (8pm on BBC2). It covers the surface of the Moon, our galaxy the Milky Way, and Planets beyond Solar system (is here life out there?!)   I’ll do a reminder nearer the time.

Happy Yule

Birth of the Sun-Child

Winter Solstice – when the Sun enters the sign of Capricorn..  shortest day..longest night..!

This year it’s happening on Thursday 22nd December 2011.. at 5.30am (GMT). That’s the astrology.
Pagans, Wiccans, Druids and New-Agers  celebrate this – and have done so for thousands of years – and consider the Sun-child being born.  Makes sense as after this, the days get longer…Sun gets stronger ..growing   its full force by Summer Solstice.
Of course this has been somewhat  `acquired’ by Christianity, and repackaged as celebration fo the birth of Christ (baby Jesus!).   Any decent effort at historical research will show that Christ was not born in December, but in earlier part of the year (if we can even consider the birth of Christ as `real’).
I have no problems with Christianity.  Brought up as a Hindu, I also went to the nearby Church with family – once in a  back in Ceylone in the early 70’s.   No one would deny the `magic of this time’..
These days I look forward to the annual special show of Doctor Who on Christmas day..   and yes, I have a Yule tree in my home, and it has lights…and I think about those Christmassy feelings of childhood gone by..
