On February 6, 2014 Mercury went retrograde conjunct Neptune with a little over a degree orb. Mercury Neptune is lies and deception. When it comes to weather a simplistic interpretation is moisture carried in the air, depending on where you live and its normal climate will determine whether it be snow or rain.
For the past 25 years I have been watching the Mercury stations retrograde and direct to determine if we are going to have rain, snow, and whether it be cold or warm. I gave a talk in October 2013 discussing what I look for and what had occurred to cause Sandy and then I forecasted the weather for the winter of 2013/14. I recorded that lecture and can forward it to anyone who is interested, for a fee.
Now back to today’s storm, the Sun is semi-square Uranus, midpoint Saturn Admetos, an unusual and erratic day that will cause stand stills and delays but can also cause possible deaths. Everyone should take extra caution and stay home if you can. Mars/Saturn equals Mercury/Neptune via 22 ½ aspect, Mars Saturn can indicate death, due to today’s precipitation. Another indication of accidents that can occur today into tonight is Mars/Uranus equals Saturn and the Sun Hades midpoint, tells me that is storm is more dangerous that it appears to be. Tonight will be very dangerous as many attempt to travel home from work as Mercury/Saturn equals Sun/Admetos all of this will equal Neptune/Hades. Mercury Hades means dangerous mistakes due to misjudgments, as catastrophes due to water can occur if not careful. Road and walking conditions are worse than it appears. Due to today’s bad weather many will be disappoint tomorrow St. Valentines, as Venus will be 22 ½ to Mars/Saturn. Mercury will square Admetos, equaling Pluto, disappointment that can cause things to be said that should not be said, because it can cause irreversible damage as Mercury/Mars angry words or rash driving will be bringing in Mars/Uranus accidents and equal Neptune due to what you do not know, or can’t see.
Take my advice and take it very slow today and tomorrow and forgive others because you and everyone around you are dealing with the same frustrations.
Storm Sandy, by Arlene Marcia Newark
The east coast of the USA just experienced something it has never experienced before. A storm named Sandy wreaked havoc from Virginia up through New Hampshire. Everyone is blaming the full moon. Yes, full moons effects tides but that is not enough to cause a disaster of this magnitude to occur. So let us see what was going on Monday October 29th, 2012, besides the full moon. Just a refresher, black Tuesday occurred on October 29th, 1929. Another hurricane by the name of Mitch devastated Central America and made landfall at Choluteca, Honduras on October 29th, 1998.
Many times I refer to either a planet stationing retrograde or stationing direct. I owe my knowledge of these stations to the late great astrologer Eleanor Bach. Many of you reading this never heard of her, much less met her. She was a dynamic NY astrologer who produced a monthly publication entitled “Planet Watch” where she informed her readers of planetary and asteroid stations, retrograde and direct, along with her interpretations of what could manifest when these points are transited. I attended many of her lectures on planetary stations. When I became interested Uranian astrology, I applied that knowledge to all the planetary stations.
In her lectures she said that when a planet stations to go retrograde, the energy of that planet gets infused onto that degree until the planet goes direct and crosses over that degree again. But when a planet goes direct the energy of that planet stays infused on that particular degree until the planet goes retrograde again. In February, 2012, Saturn went retrograde at 29 degrees 30 minutes of Libra, which remained a sensitive degree until June 25, 2012, when Saturn stationed direct at 22 degrees 45 minutes of Libra. Even though Saturn is currently in Scorpio, the 22 degree 45 minutes of Libra will have a Saturnian – influence until Saturn goes retrograde again. The same principle applies to all planets, especially Mercury. Since Mercury goes retrograde and direct three times a year, and Mercury not only has to do with all forms of communications – it also has to do with weather; it has to do with air, especially the winds and wind velocity.
Back to “Storm Sandy” which hit the Jersey coast almost four hours after the full moon. To see what was transpiring to cause such devastation, I first set up the chart of the full moon for Washington DC. I saw that the Sun and Moon were semi-square sesquiquadrate the vertex, which means that what occurred was meant to happen, or for lack of a better description, a fated event. At the same time the MC Cupido conjunction fell midpoint Saturn and the full moon and 22 ½ from Admetos. This planetary picture describes the destructions and death of many communities as well as physical deaths. Another planetary picture in the full moon chart involves Mercury, which was square Neptune with only a four-minute orb and both of these planets were semi-square Zeus, implying fierce winds and water. If Mercury/Neptune = Zeus wasn’t enough, these planets also equaled 0º Aries/Mars, Jupiter, which further indicated a mass violent disaster that encompassed at least seven or eight states.
Now what does all of the above have to do with planetary stations, you ask? While everyone is focused on Mercury going retrograde the evening of the election, no one is looking at the 1 degree 26 minutes of Leo which was the Mercury station direct degree of August 8, 2012, which continues to be a Mercury sensitive degree until Mercury goes retrograde again. This will not happen until November 6, 2012 at 6:04 PM EST. One of the main triggers of events is the transit of the Sun and Mars over sensitive degrees. At the time the full moon was transiting Mars at 16 Sagittarius 22, making a sesquaquadrate to the Mercury station direct degree of August 8, 2012. Also at the same time, these two points = Pluto/Admetos, representing the violent winds which uprooted homes, businesses and people. The electricial transformers that blew, as well as the fierce fires that destroyed over a hundred homes in Breezy Point, astrologically is indicated by Uranus making a 22 ½ to Vulcanus (never forget that 22 ½ can be a murderous aspect, literally and figuratively speaking).
Storm Sandy hit land on the Jersey shore at around 8:00 PM EDT. The transiting Sun/Saturn = the midpoint of the Moon and the Mercury station direct of 8/8/12, and the midpoint of these four planets was 22 ½ to Admetos, as the Moon = 0º Aries/Mars, Jupiter. When Mars is combined with Jupiter it can mean fortunate activity, or enlarged anger and/or violence, in this case it was the latter. Add Admetos into the mix, and you get intense and focused violence. Then you add Saturn, Sun, Moon and Mercury energy to the equation and you end up with violent winds that caused the physical and emotional destruction and disaster that will be very slow in healing and rebuilding. The hopelessness people feel is described by the Mercury, Neptune = Sun/Moon, as many are reduced to tears as they feel victimized by Sandy.
Another poignant planetary picture is Sun/Admetos, real estate, = Venus/Hades is to grieve, and we have seen many grieving over their destroyed homes and businesses. The last planetary picture I want to bring to your attention is Mars/Jupiter 22 ½ to the Uranus station retrograde of July 12, 2012 at 8 degree 32 of Aries, which brought about this sudden mass violence destructive eruption/occurrence.
This is an original piece by Arlene Marcia Nimark
Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011an earthquake with a magnitude of 5.8 occurred in Richmond VA at 1:51PM, EDT. This earthquake was felt in 22 states. Monday evening, August 22, at 11:46PM, MDT, (1:46 am, EDT) a 5.3 earthquake struck Denver, CO, just 12 hours prior to east coast earthquake.
As an astrologer I went to my computer after hearing what happened and as a uranian astrologer, I transferred everything to my 90 degree dial. The picture was crystal clear, Mars was squaring Zeus and both were at the midpoint of Saturn and the Admentos axis. This planetary picture translates into “the earth belched”. It is a good thing that the earth did not fart at the same time or we would have been in really big trouble. Mars Zeus is to ignite, and the Saturn Admentos energy created a bottleneck. This planetary picture interprets an action or activity that causes insurmountable difficulties. Another planetary combination occurring at the same time was the Uranus/ Admetos midpoint which equaled the cardinal axis/ Neptune.
This earthquake was totally unexpected and stunned everyone. Whilst this combination was occurring, the Sun was midpoint Uranus and Vulcanus. This translates as a day of menace and danger. The reason there was such minimal damage was that Apollon was squaring Vulcanus, so it was part of the planetary picture with Uranus and Vulcanus. Apollon (expansion) is also the reason that the earthquake was felt in 22 states. This transneptunian planet contains a Jupiter Mercury quality, it can also be beneficial, but it can spread what it is involved with far and wide.
Wednesday, August 24th, with the earthquake behind us, the east coast is bracing for Irene. This is classified as a category 3 hurricane that could turn into a category 4 hurricane before it hits land. This is occurring as the Mercury stations to go direct. This Mercury station direct will be a little unnerving, depending as to where it is falling in your chart or the chart of the city where you live. It will be making a sesquiquadrate otherwise known as a sesquisquare, 135 degree aspect to Uranus. This could bring sudden unstable violent winds such as a hurricane. I informed some of my friends and clients that even though the hurricane season normally begins in June, this year, the real hurricane season will begin on this current Mercury station direct.
The last Mercury station direct in was squared by Saturn, and that produced deadly tornados that destroyed everything and anything in its path.
On a less dramatic tone, the Mercury Uranus tells us to expect the unexpected to come our way. Come mid-to-end of September, Uranus will be midpoint Pluto and the cardinal axis, at the same time, Hades will be the midpoint of Uranus and the cardinal axis. There will be sudden changes and more unexpected changes. Some may be nasty and unpleasant while others may bring pleasant surprises. My advice to you, my readers, is to tread carefully for the next month at least!
On Sunday, August 28th, Saturn will be semi-square Neptune and both will be midpoint Mars and Zeus, resulting in water damage and destruction especially with machinery, like cars, boilers, computers, etc. If you are living in the path of Irene, place all of your movable mechanical appliances in high places. Then on the 29th, Jupiter will station retrograde; some will experience some form of financial losses! We then move into September and Summer ends as the midpoint of Pluto and the cardinal axis equals the midpoint between Uranus and Hades. General changes can occur due to sudden meanness and nastiness. This planetary picture gets worse as Mars’s energy is added to the mix.
On September 6th , Mars will be 22 ½ Cancer on the cardinal axis. He then moves to 22 ½ to Hades, and then on to Uranus, thereby ending his reign of terror in a big way. Mars then makes a 22 ½ to the Pluto station direct, while at the same time falling midpoint Saturn and Jupiter on September 16th. Transiting Venus sets off Hades and Uranus. My suggestion to all of you out there in cyberspace is to hide or cut up your credit cards especially on the afternoon of September 21st as Venus will be midpoint Saturn and the cardinal axis.
September 22nd, Venus moves to the midpoint of Hades and Saturn. September 23rd, Venus comes to the midpoint of Saturn and Pluto, while the Sun will be on the cardinal axis setting off Uranus and Pluto ... Yuk, Yuk and more Yuk! One thing for sure, we will be living the Chinese curse: “May we live in interesting times!”
At the end of May, 2011, I was preparing to write about the three eclipses and the Saturn station direct when the Neptune station retrograde got into the act, and suddenly I totally vegged out. Now, as Saturn is stationing to go direct, I am back on track again.
Neptune, I would say, is the most misunderstood planet. Some would refer to it as the planet of spiritually, and mysticism. I, on the other hand, refer to Neptune as the big deceiver that turns us into con artists and illusionists -- that have to pay the piper when Saturn comes around to get into the game, like now.
I have found that as Neptune goes retrograde its veil of deception begins to crack, and when it goes direct again the emperor’s new clothes are revealed and this scammer stands as naked as a jay bird. Neptune had gone retrograde June 3rd two days after a solar eclipse. It's clear to see Neptune at work as a new can of worms has been opened with the Wiener photo scandal.
Previously an individual had a certain amount of anonymity on the internet. Now, with face book and twitter what you put out there comes back to haunt you big time.
Before I go forward with this, I want to take you back to April 23rd when mercury went direct opposite Saturn. Until Mercury goes retrograde again in August, we are living under the influence of Mercury/Saturn. Look at all the scandals that came to light since Mercury went direct: Dominigue Strauss-Kahn, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and now as Neptune was going retrograde, Anthony Wiener.
On Sunday June 12, Saturn will go direct and the cosmic bill collector will be out, demanding payment for unwise deeds done and wise deeds left undone.
On June 1, we had a solar eclipse at 11 Gemini 02, Venus/Kronos was midpoint Pluto and Uranus, and Hades was only minutes away for 0 cardinal. The world heard about a very narcissistic political leader who had aspirations of becoming the next Mayor of New York City. He sent pictures of himself on twitter that had sexual overtones. What makes it so funny is that he is funny! I guess that is the Neptune station retrograde. Then Saturn stations and he gets slapped down because this solar eclipse squared the midpoint of his Sun Uranus and semi-squared his natal Venus, and Neptune stationed retrograde conjunct his Saturn. This person is Anthony Weiner and his birth date is September 4, 1964, Queens, New York, time unknown.
As Saturn will go direct at the midpoint of Mars and Admetos, there will be a decrease of work. Many projects come to a standstill and the unemployment numbers should go up again. It also means your actions are etched in stone especially since Saturn is going direct with Hades on the cardinal axis. Hades on the cards means your dirty laundry is flapping in the wind and will be talked about for a very long time. On the day Saturn goes direct Mercury will be conjunct the Sun and the midpoint between Saturn and Sun Mercury equals the Moon. This combo says face it, the gig is up and take your lumps. The public will not be able to close their eyes to what is going on any longer. And, if the public wants things to change they will have to speak up.
Then, on June 15, three days after Saturn goes retrograde we have a lunar eclipse of 24 degrees 23 minutes of Gemini/Sag. and semi-square Poseidon. After what had come to light this past month or so many couples will be looking for insight into their relationships to see if there is any hidden signs of trouble. At the same time Hades will be on the cardinal axis 22-1/?2 to Venus, as Hades cardinal axis is midpoint lunar eclipse and Kronos. There will be more sexual secrets coming to light that will be used against them at the appropriate time. This planetary picture also indicates sex crimes are on the rise due to police cut backs.
On July 1, we will experience another solar eclipse at 9 Cancer 30 squaring Saturn with a tiny degree orb, and this Saturn will be 135 to Anthony Weiner’s Jupiter. He most likely lost his bid to be Mayor long before the candidate process starts.
On a more mundane note this solar eclipse will be 22 1-2 to the midpoint of Mercury and Venus. It is summer vacation. At this time, many will be making party plans for the 4th of July weekend. My suggestions to you is keep the costs down as the Pluto/Uranus midpoint will be the midpoint of Saturn and the cardinal axis, as Pluto will be midpoint Saturn and Hades. The financial picture will be unstable, and if not careful and you give into your urges, things can turn out ugly – as the Venus/Uranus midpoint will be Hades. Then, ten days after the solar eclipse, Uranus will go retrograde, and the Uranus Pluto midpoint will be at the midpoint of Saturn and the cardinal axis. On July 13th Venus will be squaring Saturn, with a bad financial picture as Mars will be 135 to Neptune. This planetary picture indicates financial losses due to some destructive deceptions. On the morning of July 15th, there will be a full moon at 22 degree 28 minutes of Cancer/Capricorn, which is on the cardinal axis. In the evening of the same date, Mercury will be semi-square Uranus. Something weird will hit the airwaves. I think hurricane winds will blow. It looks like we will have a very intense hurricane season – and that it will start early.
One thing for sure is, we will be experiencing the Chinese curse, which is; “May you live in interesting times”.

Charlie Sheen was born September 3, 1965, at 10:48 pm EDT in NYC, 40N45, 73W57, the youngest of four children of Martin and Janet Sheen.
The first aspect that caught my eye when I looked at Charlie Sheen’s chart was his Mars square his MC. It indicates that he is an aggressive individual and someone who does it his way. My next thought was, how complex an individual he is and why at this time he is on such a self- destructive path. Since he is a public figure, I set my sights on the cardinal axis and looked at his compulsion to live his life out in the public eye with no closed drapes to retreat behind. Then I looked at his chart on the 90 degree dial and saw that the midpoint of his Sun/Venus = Uranus/Cupido = the cardinal axis = Hades. In 1974 at age 9, when his progressed Sun was at the midpoint of his Moon and his Uranus, he was given a small part in one of his father’s films, and that paved the way and influenced who he was to become.
He pursued acting in high school which graduated into film roles. His Sun/Venus = cardinal axis planetary picture tells us that the public would receive him in a positive manner as would the opposite sex, big time. But his Sun/Venus = Uranus/Cupido = cardinal axis = Hades planetary picture tells a darker story, and when hit by a transiting planet shows us a nastier side. Uranus/Cupido = the cardinal axis could indicates changing cast member; adding his Sun/Venus = Hades tells us that he likes the attention he gets from females. Add Hades and you get someone who likes hookers, and the seedier side of sex (where hurting his partner is part of the game). He is one person who should never have married. He is not monogamous, especially since the cardinal axis + his Moon = Jupiter, and this Moon is 22 ½ to his Venus. This man can only be faithful to one woman for a short period of time. He can be very charming but does not know about humility
At the same time he has a Mercury 22 ½ to Pluto. He would rather tell others what to do than be told what to do. He was also born when Saturn was opposite Uranus. This says that at times he will find himself between a rock and a hard place. On the 90-degree dial, his Uranus falls on the midpoint of his Saturn and his Pluto, and this bring in his Mercury by association. He does not take no for an answer, wanting things done his way.
He married his first wife, Donna Peele, on his birthday in 1995, with Saturn at the midpoint of his Pluto and Jupiter after a stint in rehab. He wanted to show the world he could curb his wayward behavior. The divorce came a year later on November 19, 1996 as transiting Saturn came back to the cardinal axis for the second time and transiting Uranus was semi-squaring his Pluto, and the midpoint of both was his Mercury. He then married Denise Richardson on June 15, 2002 four days after transiting Neptune stationed retrograde, setting up a picture of natal Moon + tNeptune station retro = Venus. What was he thinking? He married Brooke Mueller, his third wife on June 30, 2008 just after transiting Uranus stationed retrograde with his Moon at the midpoint of his Jupiter and transiting Uranus. One thing is very clear he never consulted an astrologer before he got married. All three of his marriage dates indicated that they would have a short life span.
On April 23, 2003, Two and a Half Men aired as transiting Jupiter fell on the midpoint of his Pluto and the cardinal axis - what a configuration for a successful change in his world! At the same time, his progressed Sun was 17 Libra 12, (keep that figure in mind) semi- square his Ascendant and on the midpoint of his Moon and Mid-heaven and 22 ½ to his Mars. He began a whole new career and different phase in his life.
His latest troubles began at Christmas, 2010 when the cops were called in the wee hours of Dec. 26th by a hooker who was entertaining him as the cardinal axis and his Hades were on the midpoint of transiting Saturn and of his Sun and his Uranus, and transiting Pluto was semi-square his MC/ASC career axis. All this heralded the beginning of the end, as transiting Uranus was midpoint his Moon and his Jupiter. A scene of total irresponsibility was acted out that night in the presence of the media.
Now remember that I said his progressed Sun at the time his program, “Two and a Half Men, first aired was 17 Libra 12. Well, on January 26th 2011 Saturn stationed to go retrograde at 17 Libra 14, just a little over a month ago. Saturn will give you rewards if you have your nose to the grindstone. On the other hand it will yank it all away if you are playing games and are taking life for granted, as Charlie was and is doing.
Transiting Uranus is getting ready to cross the cardinal axis again. This will set off his entire chart on March 12th, and then Mercury will go retrograde on the 31st of March on the midpoint of his Neptune and the cardinal axis, preparing the stage for his exit from center stage. The midpoint of his natal and progressed Sun, which tells you where he is at this stage of his life, falls midpoint the Mercury station retrograde and his Sun /Uranus midpoint, then on April 9th Pluto will go retrograde at 7 Capricorn 30, 22 1/2 degrees from his Uranus and the midpoint of his Pluto and his Saturn, and on the midpoint of his Moon and Venus. Not very good for his wallet. Then Mercury will go direct on April 23rd, on the midpoint of his Mars and his Pluto and 22 ½ degrees to his Moon /Uranus midpoint, and his Mercury and ASC. There is one aspect I forgot to mention; where is his addiction is indicated in his chart. It is not the Neptune alone but the combination of Pluto (obsessive compulsion), and Neptune “to need to escape” and this midpoint in his chart falls on his ASC. This midpoint is 22 ½ degrees to his Mars and was set off by the Saturn station retrograde. It will be transited three times by Mercury, beginning with the full moon of March 19th. His ride on the fast track to destruction could either land him in a mental hospital or the morgue.
Transneptunian planets that this system of astrology is known for including:
Cupido: Family, marriage, groups and community, society as a social group, art and artist colony. The negative side is clannishness and exclusivity.
Hades: Secrets, matters that can be nasty, vile or evil. We all know this can be contained in secrets. Hades also has to do with the three major professions: medicine, especially surgeons; astrology; and prostitution (not necessarily in that order). I, for one, think we should include legal practices as a Hades manifestation. Lawyers actions are sometimes more criminal than the activity of their clients. Hades also has to do with poverty and neediness. Our newspapers and news broadcasts are working hard to make us aware that no one is immune to the effect of Hades.
Zeus: Fire, machinery, rockets explosives. Power to rise above, productive performances, creative energies. Goal oriented. Fearless and independent. Negative side is misdirected or out of control energy like rage. Overconfidence and egotism. Procreation rather that creation.
Kronos: Ruler, leader, father, master, king, nobility. Authority, judge, D.A. head doctor, the boss man/woman. Head of state, police. Independence and mastery. Kronos is anyone who is looked up to and held in high esteem.
Apollon: A combination of Jupiter and Gemini, and translated into mass communications and/or great success. It also has to do with far and distant places. It is commerce, trade and science. A strong Apollon one can get away with murder. Great powers of intellect, and multiplicity. Negative, overconfidence, overlooked details, not seeing the trees from the forest.
Admetos: Beginning and ending of life. It is the womb and the tomb. Closed in spaces like closets, boxes and coffins. It is cycles combined with closed in spaces washing machines come to mind. It represents fences that enclose a space. Most Uranian astrologers have a strong Admetos, because we use dials that turn and use focus and deep concentration. Plus raw materials, landfills, real estate and durability.
Vulcanus: This transneptunian represents great strength, powerful force, and volcanic eruption. It is vitality and good recuperative powers. Omnipotence, power plants and storms. Violent and out of control energies is Vulcanus’s negative side.
Poseidon: Stands for enlightenment, spiritual and intellectual wisdom. This transeptunian planet represents illumination. You will find that inventors have a prominent Poseidon. Religious leaders, psychics, spiritualists, mediums, and prophets have a strong Poseidon. It is also found in charts of those who are in the spotlight like performers and movie actors.
