….Unhappiness is basically unfulfilled expectations, expectations that are flawed.  In those expectations reside all those “shoulds” our parents, relatives, and friends filled us with.  Sometimes it would be nice to do without parents, relatives, and friends because they give us such “good” but anxiety-producing things.  Looking at a smiling face has one thousand times more power to change the world than a friendly opinion spoken with concern.

If you look at the stars that encompass us, they reflect what is occurring within us.  The Hermetic axiom “As above, so below” is what astrology is all about….

As I write this Saturn, according to the “true” method of measurement, and Ketu are exactly conjunct.  As I said last week, timing with the Nodes is difficult to exactly pin down.  I am of the opinion though that pivotal moments are near for you and I. 

I don’t know about you, but  I notice these things because I write about them all the time;  many times the particular emotions I am moving through I hear similar reports of by my friends, associates, and even people in the media.  Does this mean certain planetary influences affect us all simultaneously, or that like sees like in each other and other people out of my sphere are affecting other modes?

If you look at the stars that encompass us, they reflect what is occurring within us.  The Hermetic axiom “As above, so below” is what astrology is all about.  So I think we pretty much are all simultaneously affected collective influences, within these occur our personal cycles.

 Probabilities of Change

Since the exact date that the aforementioned Saturn/Ketu astrology becoming exact will be extending over the next week or so; I am confident that energies shall peak in such a manner that permanent changes will be wrought in the psyches of many across the planet, and that these psychological changes will result in physical life-changes in not a few of them.  What may break on the planetary level in consciousness could very well be reflected in mundane events. 

Most notably in the news we can see events of a pivotal nature unfolding in the escalating Turkey-Iraq military situation, and that of the bombing in Pakistan of the convoy of former prime minister Benazir Bhuto where over 100 people were killed. The area of Malibu, California and it's residents are having literally searing life-altering circumstances.  

As Saturn and Ketu are rather “dark” planets, I see rather serious things going on.  A lot of people don’t like “serious”, they just don’t understand it and they prefer to put on a façade of happiness and smiles.  Maybe they just don’t like facing serious issues, and their mothers, uncles, and grandmothers told them people should be happy all the time, and they still haven’t gotten over the need to please them. 

Unhappiness is basically unfulfilled expectations, expectations that are flawed.  In those expectations reside all those “shoulds” our parents, relatives, and friends filled us with.  Sometimes it would be nice to do without parents, relatives, and friends because they give us such “good” but anxiety-producing things.  Looking at a smiling face has one thousand times more power to change the world than a friendly opinion spoken with concern. 

Effect on SWN

At any rate, I have been very seriously lately getting my astrology site up to a new level of quality, not so much seen on the frontend right now, but will be very soon.  Before I can create relevant content articles I have to set up the framework, as it were, that will allow me to continue to do so.  I am almost finished, if you look at the site on a day by day basis right now you’ll be seeing changes.  Some of the changes are “commercialized” but in other ways the changes will be in delivering to you more actual relevant, useful content. 

Saturn and Ketu in Leo  moving through my tenth house are certainly bringing this about in my life.  Saturn is about to move straight over my Pluto, so my time of getting “serious” may not be over yet:)

Serious as a Saturnian quality is not morose, depressed, or overly harsh with myself; those are the lesser manifestations of Saturn upon our psyche.  Focus, determination, and accomplishment are Saturn’s outstanding qualities; it’s moving over my Pluto certainly is going to bring about a nuclear-powered manifestation of those.  Lucky for you I already have an established website in place 😉 

As I said, I am working mainly on infrastructure for SWN this past week or so, in a few days or a week Astro-Success and other important content will be forthcoming in a good way.  Keep it bookmarked here.  

{tab=Day by Day} 

Mon, Oct 22
Be careful of what you think and perceive today.  The mind may be overly influenced by what it has a personal agenda to beleive in.  All sorts of dishonorable and deceitful tricks of the mind may have to be dealt with, including co-dependent and delusory traits.  There could be a mysterious "fog" that hampers perception, and beware of tendencies for escapism including that of the use of mind-altering substances.  (Mercury tridecile Neptune)

Tue, Oct 23
There may be an intensity that would seem to more than you can bear, but a co-equal strengthening power should rise within to meet it.  In so facing it, new dimensions of being should be opened to you.  The need to act and be according to your proclivities should be acutely felt, especially as it may be resisted by outer people and circumstances.  (Saturn conjunct South Node, Sun and Mercury conjunct sesquiquadrate Uranus)

Wed, Oct 24
Boundaries defining who and what you are may blur and dissolve somewhat today, deceitful tendencies may come out including the self-deceit to not face up to your challenges and seek a means of escape.  Escape can be in a bottle, a novel, or convenient electronic medium.  What otherwise seems unreal may temporarily become more real in our minds as we lend to it our power of belief which energizes it.  Mysterious and hard to define illnesses, weaknesses, or states may come over us, subtracting from our effectiveness.  Relationships should be cordial.  (Sun tridecile Neptune, Mercury, Juno and Venus aspecting)

Thur, Oct 25
Unusual, exciting and maybe short-lived relationship situations may come about; be careful of the tendency to grasp and hold on to a connection to the other person, its very coarseness may cause it to break.  An urgency and impulsivity may afflict (for better or worse) the mind today; causing maybe a conflict or two, but maybe also a creative stroke of brilliance.  (Venus opposite Uranus, Mercury tridecile Mars, Juno trine Uranus)

Fri, Oct 26
Penetrative brilliance may occur; the ability to persuade or charm others will be amplified.  Be careful of how you use your abilities today, as the temptation to abuse power for course egoistic ends may be activated.  (Mercury sextile Pluto)

Sat, Oct 27
An animation of spirit can occur today, which can be profitable.  Be careful of over-exaggeration, over-confidence, and arrogance which make you look more like a buffoon than a leader.  (Sun semisquare Jupiter)

Sun, Oct 28
No peaking influences

Mon, Oct 29
This could be an amazing day as two very bright and benefic planets dynamically aspect each other, lifting the spirits of all.  You need to be careful however of mistaking self-indulgent excesses for valid social and cultural experiences.  There should be however a moderating and balancing influence, helping to bring things to realism.  Hopes and dreams for the future should wax strong, as should a great feeling of social togetherness.  (Jupiter sextile Neptune, Venus square Jupiter, Venus quincunx Neptune, Sun sextile Saturn)
