Most astrologers focus on time.  The questions that begin with ‘when’ are innumerable.  The ability to analyze the present moment, the past and the future using a natal horoscope  reveals larger patterns that would otherwise go unnoticed.

In 1986 -ish I attended a weekend workshop in CT taught by Jim Lewis, the pioneer of what is today called Astro*Carto*Graphy. (Where you were born holds equal weight with when you were born You are the intersection of time, place, and DNA)  This 3 day course was an amazing intellectual exercise with stimulating and provocative material.  I soaked it up.  But, unlike a natal (time) chart, the calculations necessary for a ACG map were impossible.  I would have to be satisfied with theory.  In 1989 astrological software became available. I immediately purchased a computer and the proprietary software that had just been released.

Theory could be tested now, first hand.  I calculated hundreds of maps & charts for myself, family, friends looking for the places on the planet that showed up in significant ways.  All  personal traveling became infused with curiosity. How would the planetary energies  manifest in different locations.    I’ve gathered up a few amazing stories over the years to illustrate my research.  On April 9, the Astrological Society of Princeton will host a lecture on Sunday and I look forward to sharing my research there.

 

 

This May I will bFloridaastromape spending 3 weeks, nearly a lunar cycle, on a ‘new’ line of my personal astromap,  the paran of Saturn and Chiron .  Looking around the globe I see that although I may have crossed this line a few times I ‘ve only crossed it and never spent much time there, not nearly enough to absorb/recognize the ‘energy/vibration/prana/chi’.   Obviously I am in for a new experience.

Saturn lines aren’t necessarily fun places to spend time.  Saturn’s influence is always serious, studious, and disciplined.  Saturn doesn’t do anything easy.  And, Saturn is slow.  If Saturn stood alone at this Florida location I may not have chosen to visit there.  But paran lines reflect a relationship between 2 planets, and in Salt Springs, FL and locales nearby, Saturn intersects with Chiron, and that combination is one I am cautiously curious to experience.

The nature of my visit there is Saturnian which bodes well for my stay at this newly established ashram with a world recognized Guru. I have volunteered for Seva there.  It’s location on this particular line seems quite fortuitous and prescient.  I’ll let you know more when I come back.

I  recently re-located myself to Long Beach, CA.  I have a brand-new grandchild to welcome into my heart and the time is now for me to leave home, just for a while,  and experience life differently.

I’ve lived on my Jupiter line nearly all of my life and what a gift that has been for  six decades.  Abundance, knowledge, wisdom and grace… are a few of Jupiter’s gifts.  I was lucky in some ways.  Jupiter is in it’s detriment in my natal chart….good things are only just so good, and no more.

My Pluto line (on my astro-cartography map)  runs through Long Beach, CA.  (You might want to read this post if you need help  to understand the terminology)

No doubt my adventure here will be an interesting experience.

This is not a location I would  choose for this stage of my life.  Pluto renders us power-less a lot of the time.  The fact that I am having a major Pluto transit to my Moon/Venus/Uranus stellium is both comforting and terrifying.  But, the pull of grandchildren is strong.  You get to see how generations are different and similar.  That’s a function of Pluto as well…taking a longer, larger view of things so that evolution and transformation have time to happen.

Anyway, Pluto is showing up all over the place most recently with the toxic, exhaust fumes that flow through my apartment on a daily basis.  It might be the exhaust from the car parked underneath me (I’m in a garage apt) or it might be from the cars that are parked nearby in the alley behind my bedroom.  This morning it got so bad I immediately put on my sneakers to go for a walk to the beach which is right at the end of my street.
