From the Desk of Leslie Marlar, Oct ’23
STAR Guild met on the 26th under an Aquarian Moon. We discussed disposition, the current & upcoming position of Mars and the Sun, the astrology of events in Morocco and Derna, and special things in students’ charts.
The biography of Elon Musk cites a birth time of 7:30 am. I plan an article on my cite on Elon and his chart. The solar house chart we have been using for him is close to the actual chart. And this genius has Mercury very close to the Ascendant.
Here are some of the events that happened in September. Let’s look at the data.
Hurricane Idalia made landfall in Keaton Beach, Fl at 7:45am. A late Aquarius Moon was near Saturn in wet Pisces. Mars in air sign, Libra was square extreme Pluto. The Moon went into Pisces at 10am and the storm was very wet.
Mexico decriminalized abortion on Sep 5th with the 2nd Quarter Moon in Gemini. This is the sign opposite faith sign, Sagittarius. 3 things come to mind: Aquarian Age values, El Dia de Los Muertos, and Our Lady of Quadalupe, the Virgin of the New World. However you feel about this, it is a good example of Aquarian Age values versus Piscean Age values.
On the 8th at 11:11 pm an earthquake took place in Oukaimedene, Morocco. Unexpected Uranus was on the Ascendant and ruling the 10th house, and the Moon was square destructive Mars within a degree. A square describes that the planets are 90 degrees of arc away from each other. A square is powerful & tense. This quake killed thousands. The 10th house is the public identity of the moment and the 1st house or Ascendant is the personal identity of the moment.
On Sept 10th Daniel was moving along the coast of Libya. Two damns broke from the excessive rain, the first at 3:00 am on the 11th. A wall of water destroyed Derna and killed thousands. At the time the wall should have reached Derma, the Moon, associated with water, was in the first house of the chart at that time and place. The 1st house would be the identity of the moment.
Hunter Biden was indicted under a new moon in Virgo. This is a new start for him. Mars was opposing his Mars and on his Uranus. This could have been a surprise.
A stealth fighter went missing over S. Carolina with the Moon with Mars in air sign, Libra. Mars in Libra sounds like a fighter jet.
On the 18th with the Moon in government money sign, Scorpio, the Iran prisoner swap happened costing us 6.5 billion $. Also under this Moon Hunter Biden sued the IRS for agents’ testimony against him.
The increase in immigrants coming here is partially overwhelming Pluto in the sky opposing Pluto in the U.S. chart. This has been a long term aspect.
Menendez and his wife were indicted for bribery on Sep. 22nd. Later that day, the 1st Quarter Capricorn Moon was in his Sun sign.
Over 100 people were killed in a wedding fire in Bakhdida, Iraq on the 26th. The Moon was with loss and death planet, Saturn.
New York City got 8 inches of rain on the 29th, the day of the Full Moon.
Next month The Sun in week 3, Mercury in week 3, and Mars in week 1 and 2 will square extreme Pluto, so, expect extreme events. On days when the Moon is in Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn, it will connect with this.
Mercury through the 4th will oppose Neptune; this suggests deception.
Venus will square Uranus in week 1 and oppose Saturn in week 2. So expects tense events that involve women, the arts, and money.
A New Moon Solar Eclipse in Libra takes place on the 13th and 14th, which shows a new start in ideas, justice, and relationships.
A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus is happening on the 28th and 29th in money signs.
Fairly good days this month are: 1, 2, 3, 11, 12, 13, 15, 19, 24, & 25.
Under eclipses it is good to do something special but also be circumspect.
Next month, STAR Guild meets on Skype at 6pm on the 24th.
