Current (and Useful) Astrology Blogs

I don’t mean to pick on the Catholic Church, but I can’t help but notice that the Pope seems to be in big trouble. Born on April 16, 1927, Pope Benedict XVI has natal Uranus at 0°51′ Aries, square the nodal axis. (The North Node is at 0°09′ Cancer, directly on the infamous — and currently very “hot” — Aries Point.) This places Uranus “at the bending,” that critical place where a planet squares the nodal axis. The native’s ability to integrate the planet becomes a key theme in keeping the life on track. (Please go here for an explanation of planets “at the bending” from my previous article.)
(Midpoint watchers may also be interested to see that Pope Benedict has the natal Mars/Uranus midpoint at 15°09’ Taurus, also on the Aries Point.)

The Astrology of Location and Pope Benedict XVI’s Destiny at Vatican City, written by Scott Wolfram before the Pope’s current troubles, looks at the Pope’s A*C*G and local space connections to Vatican City.

Although I suggested the explosiveness of the immediate situation with the Uranus/Aries Point emphasis, Glastonbury astrologer Dharmaruci takes a longer, more nuanced view in his article, Popegate 2010-2015. (He includes the Pope’s natal chart and solar return for 2014.)

Another big story is the Health Care Reform Bill, covered by Jamie Funk in his blog, Astrology of the U.S.A. Health Care Reform Bill. The author includes fixed stars, Lilith, and asteroids in his article. (This blog has been up for nearly a week, so there are some interesting comments along with Funk’s assessment and great graphics.)

Over at the Political Astrology Blog, Patrick Watson takes a more streamlined approach in President Obama Signs Health Care Reform Bill Into Law.Watson emphasizes the many dignified planets in the signing chart. He also reconsiders a previous prediction that he made regarding passage of the Bill.

There is an extensive, ongoing astrologer’s paradise happening at 2010 International Astrology Day Blogathon. This is a big collection of articles addressing The Cardinal T-Square of 2010: Saturn, Uranus, Pluto. Within its pages are various blogs organized under key themes, i.e., Uranus in Aries: Claiming a Self-Reliant Future; Look After Saturn and Saturn Will Look After You, and Pluto Problems Got You Perplexed? Here’s What Helps. This is a fine collective effort. (Each section is co-coordinated by a different astrologer —TMA favorite Donna Cunningham has brought together 17 (so far!) articles on Pluto.)

On a more immediate note, here’s a gentle look at today’s Full Moon at 9°17’ Libra.

Have a good week, everyone!

  • Is there room for one more blog? Mine is called Slushpile Astrology, and it is fairly new (only a few months old). It deals with offbeat astrological topics that may not get a hearing elsewhere (I dig ‘em out of the slushpile) and also with some mainstream topics that happen to catch my fancy.

    Check it out on slushpileastrology@blogspot.com. I could use some more friends, so I would love it if you would friend me.

  • HI, Mary, thanks so much for letting people know about the Cardinal t-square collection of over 70 articles designed to help people who are being affected by those transits understand them better and find helpful resources and tools they can use. It has evolved into a permanent reference library at the link you gave.

    The authors include many fine astrologers who haven’t gotten national recognition, but who are doing exceptional work. Do come and peruse the collections! Thanks again, Mary. Donna Cunningham

  • I love the blog list! Thanks.

  • Hi Mary,
    I just came across your blog on facebook. Love it!
    Donna Cunningham inspired me to create my own blog when I contributed articles for the Blogathon. I was interested to see your piece on the Pope and the Aries point. I just posted a piece that includes info about the Pope in a posting titled. My blog is http://amandaastrology.blogspot.com
    I’ll add you to my blog roll. Hope you will do the same!
    Trines,
    Amanda
