From the Desk of Leslie Marlar, November 2023
S.T.A.R. Guild met on the 24th and looked at the new moon eclipse on Oct 14th at 21 Libra and noted any events that we had. We are noting the upcoming full moon lunar eclipse at 5 Taurus on Oct. 28th. We will report on any events that we experience at November’s meeting on the 28th.
There were some powerful events that happened in Oct.
On Oct. 1 the roof collapsed in a church during mass in Ciudad Madero. 10 people died. Pluto was right on the Ascendant and squaring Mars which was right next to the South Node. So a T Square involving Mars, Pluto, the Nodes, and the Ascendant was in effect. This structure repeats as the correspondent for other events in Oct. We will look at this shortly. The Moon was right next to religious planet Jupiter also for the Church event.
Mars was squaring Pluto until mid-month. And the nodes in Aries and Libra were with and opposing Mars and squaring Pluto during this time.
Other events that happened during this time and under the above planetary structure were McCarthy being ousted on the 3rd, a bus crash in Venice on the 3rd, a damn bursting in NE India on the 4th, the war starting between Hamas and Israel on the 7th, floods in Cameroon on the 9th, Hurricane Lidia hitting Puerte Vallarta on the 10th, “Day of Rage” on the 13th, and 3 earthquakes hitting Herat Afghanistan on the 7th, 10th, and 15th.
Additionally, The attack on Israel happened under a Cancer Moon which connected with Mars, Pluto, and the Nodes. And these bodies were in angular houses. In terms of the Herat earthquakes, in the 1st, the Moon was connecting with the structure from Cancer. And Neptune, “shaker of earth” was oppose the MC. In the 2nd, our grouping was angular. And in the 3rd the Moon in Libra was connecting to the group. (see my site piece on the Hamas/Israel War)
The Lewiston Maine shooting happened with the Moon next to Neptune which can be delusionary. Shooting sign, Sagittarius was angular. And Mars was opposing Jupiter. This aspect is associated with breaking rules. Mars is the breaking, Jupiter is the rules.
For the start of Johnson’s speakership, fixed signs are angular and there are 5 planets in these fixed signs. Could his position last for a while?
For Hurricane Otis, the Moon was in wet Pisces and the 1st house ruler, the Sun, was in a weather house, the 4th. Mercury and Mars were also there. And Jupiter and Uranus were in the 10th. Troublesome Mars was opposing weather planet, Jupiter.
In November, The Nodes and Pluto are still square, although a bit weaker. And Mars is not connecting with it. Venus connects with them from late Libra, late in the month. This can affect women and the arts.
Early in the month the Sun opposes Jupiter and the sense is that there is too much of something.
Mercury in the 1st 9 days is oppose Uranus and trine Neptune. This sounds like interesting news articles.
For most of the month, the Sun and Mars are moving together. This charges us up but can bring problems. They oppose Uranus in week 2 and 3 which adds to this. Towards the end of the month they square Saturn and things may worsen.
Mars, the god of war, will leave Scorpio on the 24th. While in Scorpio in connects powerfully with the Israel chart. Namely, Mars in the 1st, opposing a Taurus Sun, and squaring Moon, Pluto, Saturn, & Mars in Leo in the 10th.
Fairly good days based on the Moon are: 2, 3, 7, 8, 14, 17,22, 29, & 30.
New Moon in Scorpio on the 12th and most of the 13th is a new start in our psychology. There is an unusual aspect involved.
Full Moon in Gemini on the 27th and 28th makes us smart.
I will be speaking on the Astrology of ’24 on Dec. 3rd at 9:30 am at the Spiritualist Church in Melbourne, near the Library.
