You know, when an event happens, we can go back to find the culprits, but ask a dozen Astrologers and you will have about a dozen different opinions…. and usually they are all right. Smaller events, like the over eating on brownies maybe you will find Jupiter with the hand in the cookie jar, but for larger events, especially those time stopping, earth shattering events, multiple factors will be present. This is when we also want to pull out as many different charts to look at. I suspect the more often we find triggers in the different charts, we get an idea of the magnitude of the event.
So lets look at August 8th, 2008 at 3:17am Colorado Springs /Mountain time. After weeks of recognizing a bipolar meltdown approaching, I had a decisive moment to ruin my life 🙂 It was one of those times where I said something when the rest of my brain was shouting…. no no no, the keys are still in the ignition as my hands were slamming the door shut. Then I went O.o I am an Astrologer, quick what is the time?
We can start with the obvious, transits against the Natal chart. I still get my charts online, so no fancy point out of stuff in the margins or borders, so to keep from missing anything, I created a synastry chart with my Natal and the Transits. The Ascendant for that moment was conjunct my Cancer Moon (off by 4 degrees) and on my natal NN. That would put my Capricorn
Sun and the natal SN on the Descendant, how ironic, the house of open enemies, I find my Ego. Transit Venus is also Conjunct the Natal Moon, so she is opposing the 7th also. Do we want to include BML? I am not inclined to… but the Transit one is Conjunct my Natal Ascendant and Mercury and Mars…. so she is riding through the 7th house at the time of my “attack” and does it surprise me that she would be sitting on the verbally nasty duo of Merc and Mars? Not at all… Asteroid fans? Vesta is now on my Natal Descendant and Juno moving into a Tsquare with my Luminaries… hope she finds solice with my Natal Jupiter a few degrees away….. aaaaahhh Jupiter hoof and mouth disease, I guess when the tention broke through the Tsquare, natal Jupiter would have triggered. When we have a “decisive” moment, we usually will find the fast moving Moon in there somewhere. The transit Moon was 11 degrees Pisces…. opposing my Uranus and Pluto Natal conjunction in the 8th house… Ouch, but wait…. that means she is also ontop of my Chiron EXACT in the 2nd house. I really have to work through these self worth issues…. for those of you that don’t know what triggered an outburst of “stay away” He wrote “Love you”…. self worth… I had a melt down… very, very Chironic and in that sense, the wound that will never heal. The transiting trio of Chiron, Neptune and Jupiter going rx in Aquarius… bleh, they are having a party on my Natal Anti Vertex. More going on, but those are the big ones.
Now lets look at transits and progressions, shall we? That same trio of transits ran over my Progressed Sun, Mars, and Saturn. My progressed Moon is in orb, but not a direct hit. Hmmm, Natal Juno is seperating from its conjunction with Progressed Venus.
Now lets see what happened with Solar Arcs? What I have been finding in this is that at the moment, there was no activity that should have set off the charges, but OMG the activity over the next few days!!! When the Moon has triggered one, or the Sun in Leo will soon too…. I want to just hide under a rock. Soon afterwards, the Moon set off the Solar Arc Venus (Conjunct his natal Venus).. Whoa hold up!! Just found the Solar Arc POF is conjunct my Natal Uranus, and transit Mercury is possitioned there too… now add in the Transit Pisces Moon and KAPOW… that must be the moment I hit send… the rest of the charges will be coming up and I am sure regretfully.
Being that it involves another person, we should see some activity in their charts also… with out delving too much information we have a Natal Sun, Chiron and the MC all dealing with the Aquarius rx trio. Natal Venus is now in orb of Uranus conjunction/opposition with Saturn… He was a mess before I sent the note… The Lunar eclipse might have done a number with his Solar Arc Moon conjunct Natal Uranus at 13degree Leo… combustion was in the air.
Finally, I am going to look to the composites and progressed composite…. and we have a composite NN, Venus and still in orb Chiron being relentlessly hammered by the trio of rx transits…. who also are enjoying an opposition to the composite Uranus. Transit Uranus is conjunct the composite Mars and squaring the Composite Moon. I should be glad that this was as mild as it was… I mean ouch this hurts bad… but that combo could have been really explosive. The progressed composite has the same hits in different variations.
Where does this go now? I don’t know, I have just been trying to keep focus November there is a return of some sanity in the Universe. As for the Bipolar and Depression…. it wasn’t an attack from the stars… that was my not keeping up with my medication. And needing to remember, during an episode, any time you think you have broken through and made a life altering decision that is to your benifit….If it is 3am, it probably is something you should think out first before acting upon.
