*…At Your Service…*


For anyone as Persephone as me.

SINCE PLUTO IS IN THE SPOTLIGHT, THIS ECLIPSE… that’d be, July 13, 2018, here are the 3 degrees of interest: the KARMIC degree (20); the ECLIPSE degree (21); and the QUEST degree (22).
Below, will be the Cancer SUN/MOON Eclipse Degree.

(from Elias Lonsdale’s “Inside Degrees”)



But before we begin, I’d just like to say I once Loved a guy with this degree; and it couldn’t be more accurate:  

Many different perfumes carried by a breeze.

We bear within us many past lives, each one complete, autonomous, and emitting its own subtle, special fragrance. There are points along the journey when we must stand together with the whole line-up of our previous selves and follow out the journey they were all leading to. This is a formidable task. There is a lot to live up to. It grants you authority and conviction and it makes it very hard to get started. In order to get anywhere you must at times deny the awareness that everybody is there, and do whatever you can do, apparently on your own. But truly the depth of experience, the substantive inward development and the power of your inner drive give it away–you are destiny-charged in a larger-than-life fashion. Being self-possessed is your watchword. There is so much to accomplish. And at the center of the journey lies self-knowledge and the overriding determination to clear the karmic slate, to free up what has been trapped and bound and to come to yourself afresh. This destiny-will is guided, cosmically supported, centrally relevant to your whole world, and you will do it. Turn the darkest of hours into the brightest breakthroughs by refusing to stop anywhere or to back down from your resolve to wake up this time and get on with the greater path, at long last.

… and wake-up, he did not, in the time that I knew him. He chased different women like wisps of perfume… confused by the rainbow his Soul Journey was asking him to integrate. He stopped here, and there, delaying his Reunion – running from it, even, to keep The Drama of Samsara alive. Like other men I’ve known, he just wanted to play with new toys.
I hope he makes it. His degree says he will.
He was grieving when I met him – but his Aries South Node didn’t know we all were.
They never seem to think about the ways in which others might need them.
I transform my sorrows and losses into lessons and guiding lights for the way; the one that leads us all home, to unity consciousness.
I will tell you, that we had the kind of synchronicity that makes you both feel like the universe is on your side; it wants you to win.
One time, I was looking for a new movie to watch, and he had updated online, that he HIGHLY recommended iOrigins.
I watched it, and I smiled… that entire plot is summed up by this exact degree; no wonder it spoke to him.
With Pluto dancing on his Sun, he might be on his way home, soon…   


A stately old house in a ruined condition.

Karmic entanglement in patterns, syndromes, and worlds which have no future. Dwelling in worlds apart and worlds gone by. Intent upon salvaging the essence-spark of what was once there and claims your allegiance still. You are heavily drawn back in a virtual stupor or enchantment of following out a script, fulfilling a fate. Every line written ahead of time. Starchy and formal. Haunted, intrigued, bound up within what would seem to be no longer happening. Yet inwardly brooding all-pervasively upon the reverberations and echoes of what went wrong, of what was lost, of the severances and the tragedies. Doomed to stay in the lost places until Divine Spirit intervenes. Self-sentenced to limbo, half glad of it and half miserable and full of longings.


A bare altar covered with black velvet.

Death is a force that brings into Earth something from beyond and this something is the X factor in the human equation. Your own previous deaths as major sign-posts which hold you to your noblest and most surrendered ways of being. Mortality has spoken; immortality arises from the ashes. A threshold awareness that hugs the edge between the worlds and bows before a God who presides over the living and the dead. You stride across worlds, in tune with myriad frequencies, and are quite able to make way for the unknown, the infinite, the other side of life. A fiercely-held intention to bow before what truly is and fall for nothing less, no matter how attractive or appealing.



High up on a mountain an eagle’s nest.

Heritage and birthright, the soul’s inheritance. Being granted a belongingness, an attunement to rarified worlds. Consciousness triumphant. Maintaining the Crown vista of universal essentials, you are imbued with natural wonders and treasures. Wakeful, vigilant, and clear. You have superlative faculties of sifting through and finding what we all need to see here. Remarkably untouched by personal limitations and distortions. Called upon to uphold the truth and knowing it. Serene, focused, and unsentimental. Diving right to the place where the goods are. Impeccable skills used under constraint. The finest accompanies each breath. The mark of previous karmic attainments of the highest kind. Resuming where you left off, steady, self-assured, and righteous in the best sense. Beyond reproach.

And lastly, here is the perfect movie for this eclipse:


She represents the Archetype of Cancer, naturally. But that’s all I’m going to say. I might review it in its own post, someday.

  1. I wrote this 2000 word comment on Big Sky Astrology – but the limit was 1500 *characters*… lol.

    So, I thought I should probably make it into a blog – only, it feels just a bit too personal.

    So… I thought I’d hide it in, in the comments, where only the really curious go.

    “I just watched a movie the other night, where the daughter leaves a note for her lying, cheating dad on the concert tickets he got for him and his mistress; she writes: “This is the saddest day of my life.”

    *This*, is the saddest day of mine:

    “Pluto has been strutting around my neighborhood for months. Each day seems to bring another empty lot, where a 90-year-old bungalow used to stand, waiting for condos to be built in its place.” – April Ellliot Kent

    I can’t tell you how sad this makes me, to know and witness it happening all over the world (I’m Australian).
    People think I’m crazy for being horrified at Tree-Murder (not the kind with poisoned roots; the magnificent kind that made a neighbourhood smarter); for feeling traumatised by bad architecture, steel, grey, sharp angles, and concrete. The Uprising of the *most* unnatural environment man has ever made. (unless it’s aliens…)

    Neptune has been transiting my 4th House for around 7 years – *instant* homelessness when it hit my late-Aquarius IC, and homeless, on and off, for the last 7 years. I’m only half-way through… although, its transit of my South Node at 8 degrees is finally over. I also have Neptune Rising, *and* Pisces South Node in the 4th House. I’m extra environmentally-sensitive.

    My point, is, is that all these condos keep eating houses – and homes – and yet, homelessness is rising.
    I live in Melbourne, which won the award for “World’s Most Liveable City”, 6 years in a row. The truth is, there are homeless men sleeping all over Swanston Street. (The Women hide elsewhere.)
    Since were talking Pluto in Capricorn, “government” springs to mind.
    If I didn’t have Mars in Cancer, in the 8th House, I’m sure I’d have the energy to demand things of the government, like… for every condo you ALLOW to be built, you HAVE to give a percentage to affordable housing.
    Progressive countries GIVE housing away; in the long-run, it’s better, and cheaper. They are smaller countries, but… it’s the best idea.
    GIVE housing – necessary infrastructure – and give a “living wage” to everyone to compensate those who already bought a house, and built a home.
    In the end, we want to evolve humanity – not fight over resources that were all stolen to begin with.
    Have you ever had a family xmas, where everyone brings enough food to feed everyone else, and you all just have way too much!!
    That’s how life on Earth *could* be; abundant.

    The thing that *really* pissed me off, the most, lately, was this STUPID reality tv show they keep making, called “The Block”, where they transform houses, and one of the couples wins – or something.
    They ruined this unique, octagonal hotel around the corner where I grew up, essentially stealing the iconic building, uglifying it, and selling it to yuppies.
    Their next crime, was stealing “The Gatwick” – this was a hotel where society’s most unfortunate lived.
    What made me *so mad*, was how the council/government could allow this tv show to STEAL FROM THE POOR – and not give anything back. Like, not one of those apartments they will build in The Gatwick, will be affordable, or government subsidised.
    One reality tv couple will win one, and the rest will be sold to yuppies – whom I do NOT want in my neighbourhood, fyi.
    St. Kilda used to be a cultural mecca, and one constant festival of celebration, generosity, instant friends and interesting people. Hookers and drug-addicts were just part of the vibe, part of the scenery, and kept to themselves, and their side-streets. We all mingled amicably, and shared cigarettes, because back then, they didn’t cost more than $1 each, like they do, now.
    When Jeff Kennet started mosaic’ing around the homeless people who slept in Acland st shop doorways, and were always respectfully gone by morning, a *flood* of beige people swooped in and demanding the live-music venues be quiet at night.
    These (clones? Uniform Androids?) destroyed the vibe, the culture – and physically polluted the beach, that us locals LOVED, TREASURED, and cared for.
    I have no idea where they came from; I was horrified.

    These days, 2,800 people move to Melbourne each week.
    I don’t want to live here, anymore. 😦
    Melbourne, Earth…
    “What is not here, is nowhere.”

    Actually, I will copy/paste my short-list of grievances about the loss of my local freedoms (sorry this entire comment is so long; I’m reaching out. Need to chat with people who understand what is out of our control, and what is in it. And people who understand a Bad, or Sad Moon. My Mars is 25 Cancer, and the eclipse is in my 8th House, and YES: Pluto is coming for my Mars. I have a Natal square, anyway.)

    “Just making a short complaint-list of all the ‘small’ freedoms that have been taken away from me/my city, where I was born and raised, in less than the last year or so…
    This is the opposite of a Gratitude List; this is a REALITY LIST. For those of us paying attention, and not making excuses for the government.

    To me, it wreaks of Agenda 21/2020 – whatever they’re calling it.

    So it first started, with a guy driving through the city, and killing pedestrians; 6 people, including two kids – one of them was a baby.

    So the city decided to put all these concrete boulders everywhere there was walking space… basically interrupting the free-flow of foot traffic, and enforcing an environment of fear.

    …the driver laid-low for about a year, until I read he was let-off because he was a police informant; further cementing the theory that the event was government designed and orchestrated.

    Then we could no longer have a drink on the beach…

    Then we could no longer have a smoking section at dinner…

    Then more recently, they implemented a 10% Import Tax on items under $1000 – which really hurts the little-guy. Including me, who likes to get my essential oils from India, because of their purity.
    I would rather DIE than contribute financially to a corrupt government (“McGovernment”) – especially one that advertises itself as “The World’s Most Livable City”, whilst the city-streets are actually littered with homeless bodies in plain view.

    And on a smaller, even more local level… Uber. It used to be $6 base fare, from A-B. Then it went up to $7.50.
    Now, it’s $8.60.

    So it goes from ‘basically’ being 5 bucks, to ‘almost 10’.

    Before Uber, I didn’t leave the house, because of my c-ptsd.
    Then it came, and I used it, a lot…

    Now, I’ll just have to go back to life before Uber, where I didn’t go outside.


    I fucking hate this planet, to be honest.
    The planet is beautiful, the prison is for life.”

    I care about yuppie condos, because I suffer from chronic homelessness (Living on Neptune Rising has been the Ultimate Fall from Grace).

    I’ve been on the “Emergency Housing Waiting List” in my town, for FOUR YEARS.
    (I put up with three of my 7 Neptune Years, until I couldn’t take it anymore, and had to be practical.)
    I feel like I have excuse my poverty and crimes against my life-force because the internet hates poor people – especially rape-victims.
    (hey; it’s a Pluto-Eclipse. A “Hades Moon”… I’ll also add, this eclipse triggers my Abuse-Asteroid Stellium that surrounds my Mars; including Persephone, Dejanira, and Nessus.)
    Rape of women and rape of Mother Earth are the same thing. Thank goddess The #MeToo movement exposed the global rape of women. Next, the planet!
    …the perfect movie for this Cancer/Pluto eclipse, is: mother! (Jennifer Lawrence)
    Read all the reviews, or watch it.
    Watch it; *experience* it…

    SO…! For anyone as Persephone as me (Pluto is hovering over my Progressed AC, too), I thought these degrees would be an interesting contemplation over this eclipse.

    SINCE PLUTO IS IN THE SPOTLIGHT, THIS ECLIPSE… here are the 3 degrees of interest: the KARMIC degree (20); the ECLIPSE degree (21); and the QUEST degree (22).
    Below, will be the Cancer SUN/MOON Eclipse Degree (21).

    (from Elias Lonsdale’s “Inside Degrees”)

    …and the rest, you know.

  2. And here is another eclipse-comment I left on blog, somewhere… It’s about Manifestation and Intellectual Property – or is it? Who owns Lore?

    Here’s one for free. 😉


    There’s a difference between “Manifesting”, and “Marketing”.
    Cease and Desist letters are really just BOUNDARIES that keep wealth inside them.

    Some people are generous, some aren’t.

    And yes; Jamie said it, below: “Think and Grow Rich” was written in 1937.
    (Article: https://www.thinkandgrowrichlessons.com/post.php?post=285
    You can also have it read to you on youtube)

    It’s a classic, that even Lana Del Rey has read, and advocated.

    One of the fundamental “secrets” is actually transmutation of your sexual energy (classic, Ancient, Tantric Kung Fu) – this is why crimes against the life-force are *so bad*. And, why you might have trouble manifesting if your life-force has been damaged.
    Life-force is also our passion and desires – for whatever it is that we want.
    “Force”, belongs to Mars, in Astrology – it’s our drive, determination, sexual power, unwavering direction, and yang-ness.
    If your Mars is also not strong in Astrology, you might have trouble manifesting.

    It’s a very complex and vast topic… google: “The Microcosmic Orbit” to learn to harness your sexual energy.
    Mantak Chia is a good teacher – rogue internet articles teach it wrong, and incomplete: women shouldn’t leave the energy in the head, but wind it, and store it, in the Hara (behind the belly button). So it is a different practise for men.
    Mantak has vids.

    FYI I’m no longer on fb, but am on MeWe if anyone wants to chat. x
    You are welcome to share my information elsewhere if you credit me. xx
