Synchronicity #1

January 14th, 2011

Hi, everyone.

Just a quick post to share one of those moments in astrology which is beyond explanation.

I just sat down to write a post for my Astro4Business blog about Uranus and its travels through the zodiac in 2011.  In the back of my mind was that I needed to be sure to look at Uranus in connection with Neptune because although they are traveling through different signs this year, the degrees they will cover in the respective signs are about the same.

The impact of this is that if someone has chart points in those degrees, they will have a double-whammy this year:  both Uranus and Neptune will aspect the same points.  The geometric angles will be different but the points affected will be the same.  I wanted to be sure to give my readers some information about how this might impact them.

I opened my astrology program, Solar Fire, to look at the transits of Uranus for 2011.  Whenever I open my program the first image that comes up is the chart for the sky at the exact moment I open the program.  Using the filtering function, I often will ask the program to show me only those aspects between the bodies which are within 1 degree of exactitude.  That way I can see if I can sense the impact of the most prominent aspects of the moment.

This is what I got:

The sky at the moment I'm writing this post.

Neptune is the trident symbol at the left of the chart in house 12.  Uranus is the antenna-like symbol in house 1.  I don’t know if you can see it, but there is a dotted line connecting these two planets.  At this very moment, Uranus and Neptune are forming an aspect called a semi-sextile, a 30 degree aspect, exact within 10 minutes of each other.  (These minutes are not time-related but degree-related.)

I’m about to write about Uranus and Neptune together, and they are forming the closest aspect of all the planets in the sky right now! 

The aspect is called a waxing semi-sextile, so I went to my database to see the definition I have collected over time for the waxing semi-sextile.  It is:

Vague hint of what the planets may achieve at fullness; enticing promise of fulfillment to come; feeling that we need to grow and develop in a new direction; must overcome resistance, inertia, hesitation.

Sounds like a good time to write about the year ahead, doesn’t it?  And yet, I didn’t write that post first but was inspired to write this one instead.  Hmmmm.  Is that a hint about Uranus and Neptune this year?  Will resistance, inertia, or hesitation be a factor?

Just the last thing I noticed:  the sign on the Ascendant is Pisces.  The Ascendant contains the general tenor of the moment and Pisces is the sign most favored by Neptune and currently contains Uranus.  So all in all, it seems like the perfect moment to write the post.

Astrology is so cool, isn’t it?

  1. Just stumbled on your blog today. It’s the first blog I’ve ever read. I am hooked. 17 years in Japan myself. Married w/o children. From both NC and NJ/NY stateside. My major contribution was the Zuiikin’ English fiasco several years back when I uploaded a few clips. It was fun until Fuji-TV found me. Anyway, thank you very much for this awesome prose.

    Hi Ellen,

    Is the ascendant read from your physical location where you cast the chart? So it would be different if I ran the program from here? I noticed at Aquarius Papers that ascendants are given for major cities around the world when there is an eclipse, for example.

    I have no idea where I’m going but today I took a first step out the door, synchronous timing indeed. I think this year is going to be as exciting as a roller coaster ride. Wheeeee!

      Yes, Luna, the Ascendant is read from your actual physical location. It’s sort of easy to picture; my horizon point is not the same as someone’s in London, for example. Just for fun I just ran the following and came of with these Ascendants all within the same minute of time: New York, NY 19 Capricorn; El Paso, TX 25 Aquarius; Mumbai, India 4 Pisces; London, UK 6 Pisces; Denver, CO 13 Pisces; Los Angeles, CA 17 Pisces. So you see, they can vary widely depending on our spot on the earth. Thanks for your question – I learned something too.

    Why would Pisces be the ascendant at “this” moment? What determines this?

    • admin says:

      Hi, Mary. The ascendant is the actual zodiac sign on the eastern horizon at any given moment. And the degree of the sign changes every four minutes. So all day every day there is a tick, tick, tick of the signs of the zodiac wending their way degree by degree around the path of the sky, completing a full circle each day.

      Thanks for commenting, Mary.
