Another “Pluto Square Mars” Villain in the Headlines

Another “Pluto Square Mars” Villain in the Headlines

What are the odds, that two notorious men in the headlines this month, (October 2017) both have a Pluto square Mars aspect featured in their natal charts? Two infamous men, one who pulled out his penis in a confrontational and repetitive manner over the course of decades, the other a mass killer who pulled out his semi-automatic gun, shooting 500 + concert attendees within 10 minutes, share something in common. Both were engaging in the dark-side of their Pluto square Mars aspect.  Both tools, the penis and the gun, are ruled in astrology by the planet Mars and its higher octave Pluto. Weinstein and Paddock both have a dominant Pluto square Mars aspect in their natal charts – the need to exert power, oftentimes through destructive or controlling means.  Pluto square Mars individual’s tend to have an untouchable quality – making it difficult to influence or interfere with their behavior. This harsh aspect is most helpful in survival situations or high-risk professions such as surgeons, fire fighters, police and politicians.  But when used as an exploitive tool it is a dangerous threat to others.      ...

What Can We Learn from Harvey Weinstein’s Chart?

Posted by on Oct 17, 2017 in Astrology | Comments Off on What Can We Learn from Harvey Weinstein’s Chart?

What Can We Learn from Harvey Weinstein’s Chart?

What Can We Learn from Harvey Weinstein’s Chart? One of the outstanding aspects of Harvey Weinstein’s chart is a tight 1 degree square between Pluto and Mars.  This combination reeks of the need for power and influence, creating power-hungry individuals and potential predators. The old image of Arm and Hammer captures the toughness this square implies. It clearly is  an indicator of a warrior, someone who needs to prove their skills in a public fashion.  This placement suggests a rough and tumble approach to problem-solving.  Finesse is out; bluntness is in.  A Pluto Mars Square enshrines testosterone in men, going for what they desire and winning, many times beating out their competition, in a showmanship manner.  Pluto square Mars naturally creates enemies. Enemies which never forget or forgive their perpetrators. This is a great placement for builders, construction workers, surgeons, soldiers, boxers or auditors.  Their ability to endure criticism, shrug off insults, tolerate crap, or shirk off shame is impressive.   Think arrogant surgeon, dogged auditor, hardened criminal, or weathered construction worker. You can almost hear the strains of Rocky in your head, the little guy (gal) who becomes the dominator! The dark-side of the Pluto Mars Square drops to the beltline and accentuates intense sexual urges. This is a harder energy to reign in, as it is very instinctual, and can literally pop up with little notice. Sexual addictions, weirdness or abuse can result.  Sex can become the equivalent of popping a champagne cork, an established tradition for every “win” in life. Lesson learned:  A Pluto/Mars Square is a powder keg in a chart, demanding the individual take risks beyond normal, and find (healthy) ways to satisfy their need for domination.    P.S. The above article focused on Pluto Mars Squares in a man’s chart. Women with Pluto Mars squares often encounter domestic violence or sexual abuse early in their life, propelling them to (run) or set out for a better life.  Their goal is to gain wealth or personal power, to dominate or win out over powerful men.  Think Oprah Winfrey!  ...

Trans-Zodiac Babies

Trans-Zodiac Babies

Trans-Zodiac Babies         By Kate Wind www.thekatewind.com This is a great article for those born at 29 Degrees of any Zodiac sign! Kate sheds some insight into the benefits of being born on the cusp! I am proud to say that Kate is my daughter, but more importantly she too is a practicing astrologer and available for 30-minute astrology consultations. If you are a cusp baby, you probably already know it, or at least have heard it!  Cusp babies are those born on the last day of a zodiac sign or within the opening degree of a zodiac sign.  Born when the sun was sitting over two signs, these babies can have mixed feelings, as they eerily relate to the traits of both zodiac signs.  For example, someone born on September 22, the cusp between Virgo and Libra, may have an eye for (Virgo) detail but a strong appreciation of (Libra)beauty.  Why not have the best of both worlds, right?   We have 365 days in the year, but it takes the sun 365 and 1/4 days to rotate around the earth which throws the sun off by a degree year to year!  I recommend looking up your zodiac sign if you are on the cusp. Refer to the chart below as a general guidelines of cusp birthdays.  If you want to know for sure, contact me below and I will confirm.   Back to this idea of living two lives, the cusp baby excels at portraying one life while engaging in another.  For example, a religious business man during the day that bartends at night to put his kids through college.  Or maybe a charismatic personality in the workplace who struggles with anxiety behind closed doors. This trans-zodiac dilemma can play out favorably or can entrap the cusp babies in a web of lies. The term “two-faced” may accurately describe cusp babies.   A client was dating a guy born on September 21st.  It ended when she became aware of his second life across the country, complete with girlfriend and a job of low status – not at all the image he projected on their first 6 dates.   A client was born on the cusp of Sagittarius and Capricorn, Dec 21st.  She showed extreme opinions.  On one hand she was intellectually open-minded subscribing to (Sagittarius) dreams, psychic vibes and liberal policies but was quite the hawk about (Capricorn) law and order.   Robin Williams is a classic example of a cusp baby.  Born on July 21st, on the cusp of Cancer and Leo, he portrayed a life of comedy (Leo) performance and humor but suffered from (Cancer) depression and alcoholism when not in the public eye.   Other famous people with cusp birthdays are Rosie O’Donnell, John Travolta and Rihanna.   Rihanna, born on Feb 20th on the cusp of Aquarius and Pisces she is a (Aquarius) visionary woman with songs about strength and working (werking) but has struggled with being a (Pisces) victim of domestic violence.   Rosie O’Donnell born March 21st, on the cusp of Pisces and Aries has played the (Aries) conflict confronting, loud mouth but has (Pisces) nurtured her private life of family and children.   Since people born on the cusp are straddling two signs, they are good at straddling worlds or juggling. What is your story? Do you know, or have you dated someone born...

New Astrologer in the Family

Posted by on Sep 15, 2017 in Astrology | Comments Off on New Astrologer in the Family

I am happy to announce Kate Wind, our daughter has joined the ranks of astrology. On the day she was born, Bill ran home from the hospital to run her chart.  With Uranus conjunct her Midheaven and her therapeutic Sun and Moon  in the 12th and 6th houses, we both agreed, she was a fellow astrologer. In the 80’s Bill and I hosted a late-night astrology call-in radio show, and there was Kate, less than a year-old resting in her carrier on the studio floor, never making a peep. Eyes wide open! Or maybe it was ears wide open!! Kate grew up in a culture of astrology, so when she started asking for resources to learn astrology, I was in. Kate ramped up her astrology skills this past year, studying with world-class astrologers, and having full access to all my resourses. Check her out at www.thekatewind.com She is offering 30 and 60-minute consultations and some specialty readings for group gatherings, parties and conferences. I couldn’t be happier for her and for her many clients to come. Congrats...

Aries and Libra Alert: Summer 2017

Posted by on Jul 22, 2017 in Astrology | Comments Off on Aries and Libra Alert: Summer 2017

Aries and Libra Alert: Summer 2017

Your passions are rising!! Deep-seated feelings are bubbling up. No matter your age, you are questioning your values and lifestyles this summer of 2017. You may be asking yourself, “Is this just a passing whim?” Should I buck-up, bury these feelings and double-down on my current lifestyle?” Fair Warning to the reluctant or timid Aries and Libra. Boring does not stand a chance this Summer 2017. Surf this wave of change over the next 12 months, or let the undertow pull you in un-expectedly. Sometimes life has a way of doing that, upending creature-comforts or dashing the familiar. As Uranus entertains its entry into Taurus, calculated or unforeseen choices or reactions disrupt the status quo, creating chaos. Be pliable and adaptable. Pack for Florida, but be prepared to land in Pittsburgh. Either way, Aries and Libra, you will not miss this window of opportunity. The good news? Financial backing or psychological support will be evident between August and October 2017. One more closing thought! Team up with another Aries or Libra. You will need someone who can relate to your restless-ness and abrupt re-visioning of your future. Do not rely on family and loved ones to “think it out” with you. A lot of “should-of, would-of, and could-of” advice will sound irrelevant. Friends and family are too heavily vested in the status quo and blinded to your new possibilities. By Fall 2017 you will be on your way, feeling more alive, relevant, truthful and …. vulnerable. You are trading in the predictable for a more authentic and well-lived...
