VENUS IN PISCES

“I am sure if you analyze your feelings, you will find you love Justine better because she betrayed you!… The whore is man’s true darling as I once told you, we are born to love those who most wound us “

(Lawrence Durrell – The Alexandria Quartet, Balthazar)

Venus is entering Pisces tonight and will stay there until February 8.

When I saw this instead of my usual announcement on facebook, I spontaneously put up an astro-quiz – and asked people, by which Venus would they describe all the whores on this planet. I put up a video with pictures of prostitutes, which had all the symbols and environments of Pisces: doorways, dark passages and streets, hidden hotel rooms that hide all screams and moans. Black lace, high heels, (feet are the symbol of Pisces, all footwear and fetishes that tend to go that way, lace and especially fishnet stockings.) All these women are alone; they don’t even have their own identity. Once upon a time they had a name, today they have fake names and nicknames. Many of them don’t even have any documents, and often end up in a police station. All that smudged make up, all those teary eyes, lonely nights which bare the uncertainty of tomorrow, all that is wandering, it is hopelessness, despair, the bitterness of tears cried everyday. And who she is, nobody knows..  nobody knows what she dreams about, no one knows her fears, or what her favorite color is. Nobody knows what she dreamed about when she was a little girl, nobody knows and nobody cares to know… Read More>>

MARS AND SATURN – THE SWORD IN THE STONE

Is there any kind of order, Mars and Saturn ask themselves, whether they find themselves in a bad or good aspect in your chart, or whether any one of these planets meets the other during it’s transit through the sky, which happens to all of us several times a year… Is there justice? Where are the crimes and where are the punishments? Why do I always have to go in headfirst and only after the fifth time, when I am almost left without strength, a door will finally open? Why is it that I never seem to achieve anything when I am elated, but only when I have calmed down, when the anger quiets down, when I am almost ready to give up on everything during that endless wait for some action that I always seem ready for? Why does it takes ten years of some apparent peace and quiet only to be making a decision in one day, and as many before me, have to start from scratch and build everything up again? And do I always, and I mean always have to fight this battle completely alone? How hard it is even for me, Mars the warrior, to pull out the Excalibur from the stone and start my conquests that I keep summoning and wishing for? The questions are the same, same is the understanding of the world and people- whether Mars and Saturn are in a good or bad aspect, the difference is that the person with a bad aspect will often without compromise declare people and the world as a state of constant anarchy and often become uncompromising himself, unscrupulous, difficult to others and even himself; seeing his life as a battle against everyone which he has to face alone, and driven by the fear that if he waits, if he tries to be patient and finds peace within himself, that silent call, he will then give up on everything because he wont have any strength left… read more

Planetary Dispositors (or, some thoughts on Saturn in Scorpio, Pluton in Capricorn, Mars in Virgo and Uranus in Aries)

Today I want to write about planetary dispositors. Traditional astrology has generally looked upon the planetary dispositors as the final response to the meaning of an aspect in a horoscope. Dispositors are therefore about PLANETS (not astrological signs). For example when we say that a person is an Aries, it means that her Sun is in Aries, further meaning that Mars, who is the ruler of Aries, is also the dispositor of the Sun. You will also find on the internet more about dispositors locally rather than globally, so if you have Mars squaring Venus, with for example Mars in Cancer and Venus in Aries, and then also if the Moon (dispositor of Mars since the Moon is the ruling planet of Cancer) and Mars (as the dispositor of Venus) are also in a difficult aspect, what you have here is a story of intense passion, inevitable destruction, un-acceptance, great struggle and a bigger conflicts in love than if the dispositors (Moon an Mars) of this same square were in a trine.. There, they will still somehow bear with each other.

But if we talk about global happenings, dispositors are more than significant, but then again rarely mentioned. Uranus is in Aries since March, where he will stay for quite a while, approximately another 7 years. During all that time his dispositor will be Mars, but it seems that even this Mars, who is hovering over our heads now, isn’t the same old Mars that we used to know. This Mars carries from March until further on, information he more or less gets from Uranus. This is a different rebellious Mars, who is not diligent anymore, he is now known to be giving up on everything, throwing away his tools, dismissing everyone, destroying everything, and demanding that anarchy be the new world order. The signs through which he goes through (Gemini at the moment) just show the scene, people and other events where this ‘new’ nature of his will manifest itself. This is what makes him more dangerous, unpredictable, prone to changes of heart, sudden decisions, able to get angry in a second, and he who was known to be unbearable, now is even worse, irritable, and insufferable. We will witness this at best during his passage through Virgo that will take almost 8 months (from November 2011- July 2012) Since Virgo is also about the work environment, apart from notices and strikes that are already causing problems, this also means raids, riots, chaos (as opposed to order)- we will be asking ourselves what happened to the exemplary, ”by the book“ Mars in Virgo, who now instead of training everyone else and being a role model, is setting libraries on fire, mocking knowledge and undermining all that effort man has put in to becoming human, all morality, values, the system, and that biggest illusion of his that he believed in – righteousness. Righteousness stays in the books and this is why he will be burning them, books, rules, he will turn laws into criminal ones, and make work look like nonsense. Who burned the wheat fields? Remember that? That is the picture of Mars in Virgo, who burns down all sorts of fruits, achievements, especially now, with Uranus.

Same thing with Venus, who wherever she is now seems to be carrying some sort of sadness, chill or eminence, while Saturn is in Libra because she is his dispositor.  She is being very serious now, although overwhelmed with doubt, busy- no time to spare, rational- she also, started thinking …Now while in Cancer, she goes to the shrink, the astrologer, she wants to ‘understand’ what’s going on, and during her transit through Cancer I got served, at home, with not a lover, but a piano (Saturn in Libra). But when she enters Leo, there she goes chasing after her very long sought ambition, instead of just swaying her hips on a dance floor. And then next year when she goes retrograde in Gemini (from April to August 2012) you will see even the most frivolous conversation turn into a dead serious one, nobody has time to chat anymore, and everything superficial and frivolous turns into something that despises shallowness more than anything. Well if nothing else, there is no better aspect for art and creation, or taking your vows –there will be marriages then, because there will be no stalling, but also lying and cheating – but not successful ones so be careful not to get caught, because it will mean separation and divorce.

Mars in Scorpio

Mars is in Scorpio until the 28 of October

Bitterness. Rage. The defiance of time passing by. Which says, “You cannot stop time or life itself with your power, oh, you, god of the warriors, courageous, and the uncompromising! There is no principle of yours that can put a stop to our ephemerality. “And can this Mars in Scorpio, that will be streaming through our beings until the end of October, really bring that naïve and expected Martian optimism, aiming towards its goal with euphoric enthusiasm, full of self admiration, existence, life? No… this is a story about the hopelessness of strength, courage, will, this is the awful truth that one day everything, and I mean everything, will find its way into the river of death… read more »

Uranus in Aries

Welcome, bold vision, clarifying thought, daring youth, ingenious action, brand new science which, as Prometheus did, have come to awaken from slumber, the minds, of those of us still blind. I don’t care about your contra-revolution and new technological evolution, or about wars, treaties, new frontiers, more strict laws, and modern militarisation. And I do not care about the fact that you already know, that many will misuse your good intention and turn into hell a brilliant idea, for they do not understand and cannot fathom the greatness of your visions… read more »

Some Thoughts on Love and Relationship

Love – my favorite subject. One of my clients, Italian by the way, told me recently: “Sanja, when it comes to love issue, your English suddenly became perfect!”. It seems that I start speaking from the very core of my Libra ascendant, that is disassembling the subject of love and relationships between partners into millions of factors and which is capable of understanding, knowing and feeling that love has millions of faces. And of course, I am not talking now about the love between mother and child or love towards God or something abstract… read more »
