Astrology of Depression in the Natal Birth Chart, Robin Williams, and SOLUTIONS


We have all felt it at one time or another in our life.  Is there an astrology to it that makes one person more vulnerable to it than another? Well sort of.  Let's look at the following:

Drug abuse leads to depression.  If you look at the natal chart any kind of prominent neptune or pisces or hard aspects to neptune, especially involving the 8th or 12th house, would be one indicator.

Pluto problems. Depression could also be seen as a difficult pluto in the natal chart.  Pluto and scorpio can go hand in hand with obsession.  If there is a hard aspect to Pluto from
one of your personal planets, or if Pluto is near your ascendant, you could have pluto problems.  Donna Cunningham has a really good book that I recommend everyone read it's called Healing Pluto Problems.
Sometimes it is not you directly that has the pluto problem.  It can also be someone close to you that has it.  You kind of get caught in the crossfire of his or her pluto problem. It's a good read for anyone who wants to learn more about pluto, the astrology of it, and more important, what to do about it.
You can purchase it from Amazon here.

Abuse. Let's talk about abuse for a second.  Abuse can be seen in the natal chart usually through a hard aspect between mars and uranus. The pattern of abuse can be set up at such an early age that it very hard to ever get over it.  It also sets up patters of abuse in the future. 

Chiron.  Chiron is the area of your chart where you do feel the most pain.  Part of your lesson here at earth school is to learn how to take your pain and use it to heal.  A good read is Melanie Reinarts book Chiron The Healing Journey.  You can purchase it here from  It is an on demand book ships in 1-3 weeks.

Neptune in the Fourth House and the Father This is a tough one.  Typically, the father was absent, or addicted to drug or alcohol or in some way shape or form not stable and nurturing for the person who has neptune in the fourth house of natal chart.  This can lead to life long struggles of self worth.

I am not just talking about Depression, 

I am offering a Solution to Depression

As you can see, there are a lot of issues in a birth chart that could lead to depression. I will be talking about them in more detail in future blogs, but for now, I just wanted to let you know they do exist, and they are real.  When we are willing to look at ourselves, recognize the patterns, identify the people, situations that create the pain, and try different things to make changes, our life can be happier.  Live by the Sun, Feel by the Moon, Move with the Stars by the Light of the Libra Moon.

Robin Williams.  On the outside he looked like he had the world by the balls didn't he? On the inside, he must have been feeling a lot of pain.  In my last post, I talked about the planetary triggers.  What I want to talk about today is how to heal.  I have a couple astrology reports that help.  This one below is an example of Robin Williams Gem and Essensce Therapy Report.  For emotions, the flower remedies are great.  They really help.  What this report does, is it takes the issues that are present in your chart and offers gem and flower essence SOLUTIONS.  You do not have to live with your pain and don't let anybody tell you that you do.  These SOLUTIONS help you to heal and move forward with your life. 


 Sun and Ascendant: General Characteristics

        The position of the Sun in your birth chart represents the person you are at heart and the path you must follow to fulfill yourself as a unique individual. It also indicates your personal strength and vitality, as well as what activities or life experiences you require to feel alive and to replenish your life force. The Sun represents your personal identity.

Sun in Cancer:

Key issues: Self expression through what is familiar; nurturing soulful connections to others and to the past.

Key qualities: protective, nurturing, sympathetic, emotionally attached, retentive, devoted.

        When you are at your best, you radiate sympathetic understanding and mother-like caring and concern. Taking care of others, especially "your own" (family, neighborhood, etc.) is central to your very identity. You are apt to be tenaciously loyal and somewhat irrational in your attachments. That is, it is not easy for you to be detached and objective. Like the adoring mother who can't see or admit her son's delinquent behavior, or the patriot who stoutly defends his country's treachery simply because "it is my country". Emotional affiliation is what matters most to you. You value belonging, family solidarity, home, and continuity with the past. Cherishing what is familiar, it may be very difficult for you to leave home either literally or figuratively. You are also very tied to the women in your life.

        You are a feeling, sensitive person, easily hurt. Often you cover your tenderness with a self-protective shell to hide your sensitivity, moodiness, and emotional vulnerability. And you often hold on to feelings, hurt feelings or grudges as well as kindly ones, for a very long time. Learning to flow with your fluctuating emotions is important for you, also.

Patterns of Imbalance:

        For worry, over-concern, and over-involvement in others lives: the flower essences RED CHESTNUT and CHICORY.

        For longing for and clinging to the past, inability to live in the present or create a positive future: the flower essence HONEYSUCKLE.

        For moodiness, emotional irritability and extremes: the flower essence CHAMOMILE.

        For willingness to confront life and its possibilities, and coming out of one's shell: the flower essence MEXICAN SHELL FLOWER.

        To balance and express mothering or nurturing qualities in a positive way, and to encourage self-nurturing: the flower essences MARIPOSA LILY, POMEGRANATE, and MILKY NIPPLE CACTUS.

Gemstones that may be beneficial to wear, carry, or take as an elixir:


        Your Ascendant (or Rising Sign) describes your physique, as well as indicating how you relate to and are affected by your environment. It has a direct bearing on your physical health.

Ascendant in Scorpio:

        Physically you are very strong and capable of surprising potency, endurance, and resilience despite a somewhat reserved or even mild outward countenance. You do not reveal the depth of your emotions, your will, or what you are really capable of physically until you need to. When threatened, however, you puff up like an adder to intimidate your enemy, and can be truly venomous if cornered or treated poorly. You are a survivor, with strong primal instincts and an almost purely animal or bodily sense of what and who is good for you. Articulating and verbalizing your felt-sense or "blood knowledge" may not be very easy for you, though. You act on your gut-sense of a situation. When out of balance, your natural wariness or guardedness can become an obsession with self-preservation to the point of paranoia. You go to extremes.

        To feel fully alive, you need direct, passionate, lusty involvement with life, and you may seek out high-drama, life-and-death, crisis situations, whether through your work with people undergoing crisis, dangerous physical activities, creating a lot of emotional melodrama in your personal life, or simply choosing a lifestyle that does not buffer you from nature. You enjoy storms.

        When ill, you respond very well to therapies that are cathartic or purgatory in nature, fasts, enemas or colonic treatments, sweat therapies, herbal remedies intended to purge the system, etc. Clearing out emotional debris, old grudges, etc. (which you are apt to retain) is also very helpful. The garden and flower essences which can benefit you include TOMATO (which is cleansing, assists the body in throwing off disease, and also helps ridding oneself of unwanted habits) and HOLLY (to let go of toxic emotions like envy, suspicion, desire for revenge, etc.).

Asc. Trine Moon:

        Your subtle sensitivity, intuition, and ability to tune in emotionally to what is going on around you is an asset. You instinctively understand what others want and need, and can lend support without compromising your own needs, and when you need help, your friends rally around. A good support system bolsters your overall well being.

Asc. Trine Mars:

        Strong and direct without being too aggressive, you can accomplish whatever you will. You also have strong, active powers of immunity to disease, and usually recover quickly from injuries.

Asc. Quincunx Jupiter:

        You have an expansive outlook that inspires confidence, faith, and hope in the people you come into contact with. Others are drawn to you because you appear wise and you give them positive encouragement. You believe in possibilities, miracles, and grace, and thereby invite them into your life. This attitude certainly contributes to your health, which overall should be quite good. Unless other factors in your chart indicate humility and a realistic sense of limits, however, you are apt to be rather grandiose, self-righteous and preachy at times.

Asc. Trine Uranus:

        Your approach to life is improvisational, extemporaneous, impulsive, unorthodox. You have a sensitive "psychic antenna" attuned to meaningful coincidences and the wave of the future. You enjoy being spontaneous, changing your plans depending upon on how you feel inspired.

        Lively and unpredictable, you keep a fresh and open perspective, and can be an agent for positive change and renewal in your environment.

Moon and Venus: Emotions and Feelings

        The position of the Moon in your birth chart reflects your emotional nature, what you need to feel nurtured, what feels familiar and comfortable to you. It is also your deeply-held beliefs and mostly unconscious or instinctive responses, which play themselves out in your closest personal relationships. Your moods, memories, dream life, and feeling-self are depicted by the moon in your birth chart.

Moon in Pisces:

Key issues: Needs a feeling of unity with others and the world. Emotionally experiencing the spiritual or transpersonal realms.

Key qualities: gentle, imaginative, compassionate; easily moved, swayed, or influenced by others' need.

        You are highly empathetic and sensitive to the atmosphere around you. You merge with others' psychic and emotional energies quite easily and are able to sense and feel their inner state, regardless of what they show or try to present. This may cause you some confusion until you learn to trust your instincts and sensitivities, to discern what is coming from you and what, indeed, is being generated by someone else. You also need to beware of taking on other people's troubles. For instance, if you are with a friend who has a headache, often you will find you get one too. Also, because you feel others' pain you want to remedy it, and you may try to do for them what only they can do for themselves. Rescuing (or wanting to be rescued) is part of your emotional make up and you need to discover when that is wise and when it is not.

        You are extremely suggestible and malleable. More forceful individuals or energies can overwhelm you, and you may have learned to cope with this by spending a lot of time alone, away from external input. Dreamy and imaginative, you need periodic escapes, time for reverie, music, listening to your inner voice.

        You are predisposed to being passive and receptive, to go with the flow, to avoid direct confrontation and conflict, to let life take its course rather than energetically taking life by the horns or forcing things.

Patterns of Imbalance:

Flower essences that may be helpful to you include:

        For clear psychic boundaries and psychic protection; extreme vulnerability to others and the environment: the flower essences YARROW and MOUNTAIN PENNYROYAL. The gem essences of HEMATITE and COVELLITE help to give strength, clarity and definition to the aura and build stronger, clearer energetic boundaries, also.

        For an overly active or overly expanded psychic state, leading to hyper emotionality, or a sense of psychic vulnerability: the flower essences MUGWORT and SAINT JOHN'S WORT.

        For shyness related to over-sensitivity: the flower essences VIOLET and MIMULUS.

        For unbalanced sympathy, a tendency to get emotionally and physically enmeshed, inappropriate merging with others: the flower essences PINK YARROW and BLEEDING HEART.

        For avoidance of present life and practical concerns, being too much in another world: the flower essence CLEMATIS.

        For a tendency to evade responsibility, indulge in self-pity, or feel like a helpless "victim" the flower essences: DESERT MARIGOLD, FAIRY LANTERN, and SELF-HEAL.

        Your responsiveness to external stimuli can be used to your benefit when you are feeling out of balance. Music has a profound influence on you, and generally you do know what effects particular pieces have on you. Some compositions that may increase your sense of well being include those of the sounds an unborn child hears in the mother's womb, ocean sounds, or the sounds of birds in the wild.

        Aromatherapy oils which can be used as perfume, in bathes, or in a diffuser or mister include: For upliftment, increased energy and enthusiasm: PATCHOULI, JASMINE, ROSEMARY, JUNIPER. For hypersensitivity: CHAMOMILE, JASMINE, and MELISSA.

Moon Opposition Venus:

        You are temperamentally predisposed to want a soft life, one that is filled with love and affection, beauty, pleasure, and comfort. You hunger for domestic and familial sweetness, happiness, and closeness. You may, in fact, be addicted to "sweets" from desserts to amours. Wanting to be pampered and babied, wanting one-sided support, or for the good things to be provided for you with no serious, sustained effort on your part may be your weakness. On the other hand, you may indulge others, be too lax and forgiving, adapt yourself too readily to others' wants and needs, be an overprotective parent to those you care for, be more concerned with others' happiness than your own, or sacrifice important personal values to avoid creating discomfort for others particularly family members. Flower essences that can ease some of these patterns include POMEGRANATE and MARIPOSA LILY (for the capacity to give and receive nurturing in a balanced way), and MILKY NIPPLE CACTUS and MILKWEED (for transforming dependencies into self nurturing autonomy).

        The position of Venus in your birth chart reveals your capacity for love, intimacy, pleasure, giving and receiving, and relationships. Representing, also, your taste in beauty and your values, it is a key to how you can create harmony within yourself.

Venus in Virgo:

        Your tastes are understated, modest, simple, refined, perhaps very practical and unadorned. Both beauty and the desires of your heart are often put aside in favor of practical concerns. In love and friendship, you are quite devoted, and enjoy being useful to and serving the other person, but may not be very open to receiving or enjoying them. You are also rather proper, conservative, even prim about expressing or receiving affection (certainly in public if not in private), but you may show your affection in odd ways: fussing over, even criticizing your loved ones in hopes of helping them. You can be very hard to please. Being overly critical and rigid in your standards can lead to "female problems", either within the body or in your personal and social relations. Consider taking the following flower essences if you feel you are expressing the negative aspect of this pattern: BEECH (for criticism and intolerance of others), DOGWOOD (for more grace in relationship as well as in your own physical movement), and COLUMBINE (for greater appreciation of yourself; less criticism of oneself or one's appearances).

Mercury: Thinking and Ideas

        The position of Mercury in your birth chart describes your intellectual qualities, how you communicate or express yourself verbally, and in general how your thinking patterns operate.

Mercury in Leo:

        Your mind makes intuitive leaps rather than logical associations. You love to tell colorful stories, and to relay information in an enthusiastic, entertaining, or creative way. You may also slant facts to suit yourself. Consider taking the flower essence HEATHER if you wish to curb the tendency to talk too much about yourself.

Mercury Conjunct Pluto:

        Your mind is keen and penetrating, and you are capable of considerable intellectual passion. Unsatisfied with superficial analysis or pat answers, you probe into the very core of an issue or subject. You perceive the deeper, unspoken motive, what is hidden, obscure, buried, or taboo. Often you voice what others are trying to skirt, and you are a convincing, persuasive, even charismatic speaker. Your words can be potent and healing, going directly to the heart, transforming other's entire understanding. When not positively directed, however, you may use your mental powers to overwhelm or coerce others into accepting your viewpoint, become intellectually or philosophically extreme, paranoid, intolerant and fanatical, use deadly sarcasm, connive, or secretly obsess over some convoluted scheme or negative intent.

        You may have blockages in either the throat or brow chakras due to early experiences in which you were told NOT to see what you did indeed see (brow), or not to speak about your perceptions (throat). You may have decided to close down your intuitive perceptiveness, or not to trust others enough to speak openly and truthfully about your experiences and what you know. To clear and open these centers healing energy work (such as Reiki or other laying on of hands techniques) can be very useful.

        If you feel creatively stifled, have difficulty speaking, or feel you must tightly control every word that escapes your lips for fear of revealing too much about yourself, and/or if you have physical problems and/or constrictions in the throat area, the following practices may be useful: 1) Do color breathing (as described in Appendix I) with the color SKY BLUE. Wear a necklace of some blue stone; LAPIS LAZULI is particularly recommended. 2) Use your voice. Create a simple affirmation and speak it aloud several times a day (for example: I use my words to praise, empower, and heal myself and others.).

        Take a singing or toning class. Let yourself make any sounds you wish. Strange, wild, or unexpected sounds may come through you as you open and release the blocks in this center. The sound "HREEM", repeated during meditation or quiet time, tones and expends the throat chakra.

        If your brow chakra is damaged or blocked, you may have some difficulty visualizing. Use the color indigo or violet blue. Gemstones that can be worn to clear or open this center include: DIAMOND, AZURITE, and SAPPHIRE, as do the flower essences EYEBRIGHT and QUEEN ANNE'S LACE.

        Other flower essences that may be appropriate and helpful: OREGON GRAPE (for inability to trust, paranoid thoughts or expectation of ill-will from others), CALENDULA (for more gentleness and receptivity in communicating with others), and VERVAIN (for extremist views and forcing convictions upon others.).

Mars: Ambition and Drive

        The position of Mars in your birth chart indicates your will power, physical vitality and sexual drives, and your capacity for decisive action and self-assertion, as well as the musculature and adrenals in the physical body.

Mars in Cancer:

        You have strong instincts for self preservation and though seemingly rather soft or mild, you can be surprisingly territorial and fierce in defending what is yours. You are not generally very physically aggressive or assertive, unless you feel threatened, but your loyalties (to country, team, family, etc.) are very strong and you will fight for them.

        Your energy level, sexual drives, and overall physical vitality depends a great deal on your emotional state, and how secure and supported you feel. Your moods have a pronounced effect on your health, in a very direct way. The flower essence MOUNTAIN PRIDE (to strengthen positive masculine energy, ability to assert oneself, etc.) could be helpful to you.

Mars Square Jupiter:

        Your life force and physical energy is quite strong, and when young you appear to have inexhaustible reserves of vitality. With this comes a certain confidence (perhaps bordering on arrogance at times) and the belief that you can do anything. You enjoy healthy competition and an active, adventurous life. Your physical health is beneficially affected by your positive attitudes, and you often achieve impressive successes in life as well. When out of balance, you may be rebellious or impatient with superiors, and with rules or limitations on your freedom to act. Premature action, overconfidence, exaggeration, or lack of moderation (in physical activities, sexual expression, or competition) can be problems. Taking on too much, promising the sky and then feeling pressured to deliver, can also be stresses in your life.

Flower essences that may be helpful if you wish to work with any of these issues include:

        TIGER LILY, for overly aggressive, competitive, "yang" energy.

        LARKSPUR, for power of leadership abilities marred by the desire for self-aggrandizement.

        DANDELION, for driving oneself too hard, tension held in the musculature of the body.

        ALOE VERA, for overuse or misuse of fiery creative forces, feeling burned out.

        JUMPING CHOLLA CACTUS or PRICKLY PEAR CACTUS, for adaptability and flow rater than pushing-pushing-pushing.

        Listening to a deep relaxation tape once a day is also recommended, to avoid becoming scattered or burned out from too much activity.

Mars Conjunct Uranus:

        Impatient, impulsive, original, and irrepressibly independent, you assert yourself in ways that may seem audacious to other people. You have a self-willed, rebellious streak that resists authority, conventions, rules. Somewhat of a daredevil, you have strong need for action, excitement, physical thrills, change, experimentation, stimulation, or high energy situations. If it has not been tried before, you will want to do it (NOW!). You are an innovator. Though essentially strong and energetic, you run the risk of burning out your creative, sexual, or vital energies through extremes, lack of moderation, or misuse.

        When out of balance and not constructively oriented, you are prone to accidents caused by recklessness, speed, or taking dangerous risks, unpredictable temper tantrums, or even violent episodes.

        In addition to having healthy physical outlets to release your energies from time to time (anything from vigorous dancing to athletics), there are a number of flower essences which can help you: ALOE VERA (for the type of burn out described above), IMPATIENS (for irritation, intolerance, impatience), TIGER LILY (for unbalanced, overly aggressive "yang" energy), SHOOTING STAR (for feeling that you are ahead of your time), WILD OAT (for restless dissatisfaction; trying many activities but chronically restless and unable to commit to any of them), CHERRY PLUM (for feeling out of control and afraid you will do something destructive). MULLEIN (if what you are seeking to do is unconventional and not socially validated) and CLIFF ROSE (for the follow through required to actually manifest your intent.). Also useful for you is DOGWOOD, for more grace, tact, and ease in relating to others.

        Gemstones that calm, ground, and harmonize your energies include: BLUE LACE AGATE (which calms impulsiveness, encourages tact and discernment), GREEN or BLUE CALCITE (which relax, calm and soothe the solar plexus and nerves), CHRYSOPRASE (which relieves apprehension as you move into the unknown, and encourages emotional peace and stability), and GALENA (a lead mineral that is very grounding). These can be used when you are out of balance. LARIMAR is a very excellent influence also, helping to build confidence when you are involved in unique or innovative projects.

Jupiter and Saturn: Opportunities and Challenges

        The position of Jupiter in your birth chart represents the principle of growth, improvement, expansion, faith, and the quest for ultimate meaning or broader understanding of life.

Jupiter in Aries:

        You are a believer in self-reliance, personal effort and courage, pulling oneself up by the bootstraps, "God help those that help themselves". Philosophies that emphasize positive thinking and positive action appeal to you (as opposed to more contemplative, passive, "yin" approaches).

        You have well developed capacities for independent ventures and/or leadership.

Jupiter Square Uranus:

        You have an innate sense of the interconnectedness of life and of universal principles, but very little interest in formal religion or dogma. In fact you may often find yourself at odds with religious authority and conventions, perhaps needing to break away from the beliefs you were raised with in order to find your own way. Inspired and motivated by humanitarian ideals, you are essentially utopian and liberal in your beliefs. You view change, even revolution, as a positive thing and are quick to enthusiastically embrace the new, at least philosophically. You have a great need for freedom in order to pursue your inspiration, intuitive impulses, and opportunities which are presented to you suddenly. You will experience unexpected twists of fate and rapid gains or losses through speculative ventures. Because you are apt to take chances and go out on a limb (that is where the fruit is, right?), you will have periods of uncertainty in your life, during which the following flower and gem essences can be helpful: BIG ROOT JATROPHA (encourages a feeling of security during phases of expansion and change), COW PARSNIP (for inner peace during time of transition, as well as contentment with the present), AVENTURINE (supportive during transitional periods when you need to take a leap of faith), and PERIDOT (which stabilizes one during times of new beginnings).

Jupiter Opposition Neptune:

        Positively you have great concern and hope for the world, an expansive faith in possibilities, and the ability to inspire other people to a larger, more encompassing vision. However it may be difficult for you to tolerate any sort of restrictions or to set limits in your life. When out of balance, you can be wastefully self-indulgent or easily seduced by visions of the good life gained without effort, grandiose dreams and schemes, or escapist fantasies. Disappointments may come through foolish overoptimism, naivete, over-generosity, or relying on grace or luck alone. Unless other factors in your birth chart indicate practicality, it may be very challenging for you to try to actualize or concretize your dreams. An ungrounded or disembodied spirituality, or too much focus on a better future, can prevent you from living fully in the present. The flower essences which can help bring you into balance include: CALIFORNIA POPPY (for escapist or addictive tendencies, always seeking a better "high"), BLACKBERRY (for bringing ideals and goals into concrete manifestation), CLEMATIS (for day dreaming, poor concentration on the immediate; impracticality), SAINT JOHN'S WORT (for an overly expanded state leading to psychic vulnerability), and WILD OAT (for chronic dissatisfaction and restlessness, inability to make commitments). For learning how to set boundaries and appropriate limits, RHUBARB.

        The position of Saturn in your birth chart represents the bones, the skeleton, and the principles of hardness, heaviness, structure, stability, form, and boundaries. It shows what is hard for you, what you struggle with, where patterns of rigidity or fear hinder you, what is heavy for you, where you develop character, maturity, and depth through being tested.

Saturn in Virgo:

        You have a well developed sense of humility and awareness of your own inadequacies and limitations, which when out of balance can become extreme self-doubt or excessive perfectionism. You may thus settle for being only "the humble servant", believing that is all you deserve or are capable of, and fear taking any real risks or stepping out of line in any way. You tend to fear the unknown. Order, or cleanliness, or having everything "just so" could become an obsession. Hypochondria may be one of your negative habits, also. On the other hand, you may expect perfection from the outside world, mercilessly criticizing, censoring, editing, or correcting others. You may struggle with guilt and rigid "shoulds" a great deal.

        Flower essences that can be especially beneficial include: BEECH (for judgmental, critical, intolerant attitudes toward self or others). PINE (for guilt and perfectionism). LARCH (for self-censorship, lack of confidence or expectation of failure), FIG BLOSSOM (for greater flexibility, feeling burdened by "shoulds" and "have to's", being too hard on oneself) and SACRED DATURA (for the ability to let go of the known and familiar without feeling threatened).



       The following information will enable you to make up your own flower essence remedies. However if you wish to try them but are not interested in doing it all yourself, you can contact a flower essence practitioner. Many astrological counselors and other holistic practitioners use the flower essences and gem essences in their work.

       1. Choosing your essences: Generally you can use up to five essences at a time. Some people believe five essences is ideal, as the number five is associated in myth and folklore with the healing process. Others find using a single remedy at a time most effective. Follow your own intuition and impulses on this, but please do not try to address too many issues at once. Gem essences can be used with flower essences.

       2. Making the remedy: Once you have chosen the essence or essences you wish to take, purchase them from the supplier in the concentrated form ("stock" bottles). You will need a glass dropper bottle such as pharmacists use for eye drops, which are sold at some pharmacies as well as through the flower essences companies. The one ounce size is standard. It should be sterilized by boiling it for a few minutes, then letting it cool. Then, put four drops of each concentrated essence into the bottle, close it, and shake it vigorously for about a minute so that the essences are well blended. Fill the bottle about 3/4 full with distilled or spring water. (For a more potent remedy you may wish to use color-solarized water instead, as described in the color therapy section). Then, close the bottle and, again, shake vigorously for about a minute. To preserve the mixture, add a teaspoon or so of either brandy or apple cider vinegar. (They work equally well; it is a matter of personal taste and preference).

        3. Using essences: The standard dosage is four drops four times a day, taken under the tongue. Taking more than four drops will not increase the remedy's effectiveness, and taking it more than four times a day is usually not necessary except in crisis situations. However, if you feel inclined to use it more frequently than four times a day, these remedies cannot be harmful in anyway. They are self-adjusting, meaning that you will simply not absorb more than you can use.

        To further activate the remedy's effect, you may wish to use a simple affirmation that corresponds with your intent and the nature of the remedy. For instance, if you are taking a remedy to increase your receptivity to love, you can say "I now let love and appreciation into my life", each time you take the remedy. Keep the words simple, positive, and framed in the present tense. Or, you may wish to put a self-adhesive label on your bottle, with a list of the essences it contains and a short phrase such as "receptivity to love" or "opening the heart" which you will see each time you take the remedy.

        Other very effective ways to use your remedy are to add 7 drops to a bath and/or several drops to an atomizer or spray bottle filled with water and spray it around the rooms of your house or workspace.

        4. What to expect: Please understand the flower essences do not "take away" troublesome feelings or attitudes. Some people actually experience a temporary intensification of the issues the remedy is designed to address, what is referred to as a "healing crisis", as strong emotions or other reactions begin to surface. Naturally you can temporarily stop taking the remedy if you get too uncomfortable. You can also get some support while this process is occurring, since a willingness to experience and feel what is actually there is an intrinsic part of the healing. Most people, however, find the remedies quite gentle. Insights into the nature of the problem and how you are contributing to or maintaining it may emerge. Or, you may simply notice a gradual attitudinal, emotional, or energetic shift, and more harmony in that area of your life. Some very sensitive people feel the effects of the remedies on their chakras (particularly the heart and solar plexus) immediately upon taking them.

        If the pattern you are working with is longstanding, as the ones which are related to your birth chart are apt to be, you may need more than one bottle of given remedy. Or, after one bottle, you may want to give it a rest, and then go back to that remedy later. If you frequently "forget" to take the remedy or simply lose interest in it, this may be a signal that now is not the time for that particular one.


        Color can be used to calm or energize, to cleanse, to stimulate a given energy center in the body, or to promote balance and an overall sense of well-being. In addition to paying attention to how color affects you and using that awareness in your choice of clothing and home or office decor, here are two methods to utilize color:

        1. Color-solarized water: This is a very easy method. The supplies needed are a clear glass jar or bottle, colored cellophane (which can be purchased at an art supply store), drinking water, sunshine, and a clear quartz crystal (optional). Sterilize the jar or bottle, fill it with water, and if you wish add a clear quartz crystal (this magnifies the effects of the color). Then, close the bottle, wrap it in the colored cellophane, and secure the cellophane with a rubber band at the top. Place the bottle in a sunny spot for 2-6 hours, preferably outdoors. After removing the crystal, you can drink it freely and/or use it to make your flower remedies.

        2. Color Breathing: This exercise can be used to clear your energy system of psychic debris, stimulate a sluggish or blocked chakra, and promote healing. Choose a place that is well-ventilated. You may stand or sit as you prefer, keeping your spine erect. Begin by taking 2 or 3 deep, gentle breaths, inhaling slowly through your nose and exhaling through your mouth. Then as you breathe in, see and feel the color filling your entire body. As you continue to breathe, imagine the color surrounding your body as well, extending out about two feet all round you, to create a beautiful egg-shaped bubble of colored light. Simply breathe in this color for 5-10 minutes.

        To work on a particular chakra, you may start by breathing clear, white, or golden light (as described above). Then focus your attention on the center that needs clearing or balancing. For the base or root chakra, imagine a glowing sphere of bright, apple red at the very base of your spine. As you breathe, imagine the light becoming stronger and brighter. For the sacral center (located about 2 inches above the pubic bone) the color is orange. For the solar plexus (halfway between the navel and sternum), the color is bright yellow. For the heart, green or pink. For the throat, sky blue. For the brow center (located between the eyebrows and up about one inch), indigo blue. For the crown center (at the top of the head), purple, violet, or white. (You may use which ever one you feel most attracted to).

        If you cannot "see" the color with your mind's eye, just imagine that it is there. An inability to visualize a certain color often indicates a particular need for that very color.

        To derive healing benefits from visualization and color breathing, it is not necessary to spend a great deal of time. Five to ten minutes once or twice a day is quite adequate. And, once again you decide when you have "had enough" of a given color or exercise. A change in your feelings about a given color (less attraction to or "craving" for it, or less repulsion toward it, for instance) can be a clue.

Robin Williams Sudden Tragic Death

Robin Williams Natal chart and Transits at Death.

Robin Williams Natal Chart born July 21, 1951 in Chicago, IL.  He has a Grand Trine in the water signs between his Moon, Mars/Uranus, and his ascendant. Water trine people are highly intuitive and are very much feeling oriented. When one of the transiting planets hits that trine, it's like plugging something electric into a circuit.  When one planet gets energized,  all three get lit up like a Christmas tree.  Transiting mars was just that planet to light things up.  What it specifically did was it intensified Robin's emotions.  Plus,  it also triggered his Mars (action) Uranus (sudden change) in his eighth house of death. Look at the report below, this was something that was only intensified for four days.

Also,  transiting sun conjunct the lord of the chart, his natal pluto, was exact at the time of death. I think it was the TR sun plus the Natal Pluto that put him over the edge.  If you read the report below, that was only exact for 2 days. If he would have just worked through that, the intensity of it would have passed.  I read just recently that Robin had checked into a rehab clinic in July for alcohol abuse.  Alcohol stuffs your emotions inside of you and when you detox, whatever you have been repressing comes out, whether you want it to or not.  It was the combination of the three (detox, transiting mars trigger, transiting sun trigger) that was too much for him to bear.

Take a look at Robin's Destiny and Decisions Report which tells the who what where how long about transits.  If he would have just hung in there for a couple days the feeling he was feeling would have passed.

Order one of our Destiny and Decisions Astrology Reports today so you can see how the planets are influencing your psyche. You can see from the report below that had Robin had waited just a couple of days the intensity of what he was feeling would have passed.  This report shows you the light at the end of the tunnel.  When will this feeling pass? All the answers are here.

Libra Moon Astrology Destiny and Decisions Report

Jul 8, 2014           (Jul 7, 2014 to Aug 15, 2014)                         .

TRANSITING SUN IN THE NINTH HOUSE--When the Sun transits this house of your Natal chart, it influences the departments of life most strongly affected by the individual will and power potential. Ninth house position indicates a time of dynamic interest in spiritual and religious pursuits, especially in realms of higher education, religion, law, and philosophy. You have a highly intuitive mind, and may have flashes of inspiration that can help you to solve problems. You could have visions of the future that border on prophecy during this time. You are likely to be interested in distant places and their culture, art forms, and traditions. You will probably have strong moral convictions by which you guide your life. Your beliefs may not be traditional, and you need to be extremely careful to avoid any tendency to impose your religious and moral views upon others.

Jul 19, 2014          (Jun 7, 2014 to Dec 25, 2014)                          

TRANSITING PLUTO OPPOSITE NATAL MARS--This can be a tough transit to handle, for the energies are so deep and the desire for action so strong that it can be hard to maintain control. It can certainly be a good time for getting difficult things done if the energy can be harnessed and controlled in positive ways. You must watch your ego for it may try to overpower others. There can also be a struggle of egos in which others try to overpower you. You have a strong desire to "win" in all things during this transit. This can be a good influence as long as you do not use it to the detriment of others. Pluto's energies are released for the common good, and if your motives are purely selfish, they probably will not prevail. However, you can reach a greater understanding of self during this time, and will have the courage to confront difficult situations and difficult people where it is necessary, and where it can be done without domination. The transit can give you an opportunity to increase your self image and personal and psychological strengths, as long it does not damage the psyche of others.

Jul 22, 2014          (Jun 12, 2014 to Aug 31, 2014)                         

TRANSITING URANUS OPPOSITE NATAL NEPTUNE--This is a generational aspect, indicating a period of uncertainty and unrest. Governments will fall and people will feel confused about world affairs and their own country. Deceit and deception in government and political affairs will be common. Personal influences from this transit could include lack of trust, confusion, and paranoia. Seek positive spiritual guidance, and be sure that any psychic abilities are used for the greater good during this time.

Jul 24, 2014          (Jul 23, 2014 to Aug 11, 2014)

In the ninth house transit, it arouses an interest in higher education, or professions requiring advanced degrees. Many teachers and professors have Mercury in this house. Interest in philosophies can be strong. Your decisions include moral and ethical considerations as well as the practical. You need to guard against intellectual pride and snobbery, during this time. Don't allow yourself to become dogmatic and sectarian in your opinions and beliefs.

TRANSITING MERCURY TRINE NATAL JUPITER--This transit expands the mind. It favors all types of business and commercial activity, as it is an excellent time for planning for the future and creating organizational systems. Although Jupiter is sometimes called the "lucky" planet, these things do not happen through luck, but rather through hard work, which the mind is opened up to realize during this time. You are optimistic and positive in your thinking, which, when applied with luck, can lead to phenomenal success.

Aug 9, 2014      2 AM (Aug 9, 2014 to Aug 10, 2014)                           

TRANSITING MERCURY SEXTILE NATAL NEPTUNE--Positive imagination accompanies this transit. Your intuitive Mercury mind is tuned in to the higher plane of mystical Neptune. Prayer and meditation is indicated. Daydreaming is likely, therefore it is not a good time for performing tasks which require clear thinking and concentration. However flights of fancy will illuminate your higher mind and artistic frontiers can open up for you. The keyword is inspiration.

Aug 9, 2014      2 PM (Aug 9, 2014 to Aug 10, 2014)                          

TRANSITING SUN SEXTILE NATAL NEPTUNE--This transit can "illuminate" intuition. During this aspect it may not be enough for you to understand what something is--you will also want to know what it means. You will be extremely receptive to the thinking and feelings of others. You will understand their needs and be willing to help them out. Your feelings will be charitable because your personal ego needs are low. Pursue spiritual matters, for mystical and spiritual concerns are likely to claim your attention more than usual. This is a time for contemplation on your beliefs, and where you are with self understanding. Spend time in prayer and meditation, and you will be able to get in tune with your inner self and the universe.

Aug 10, 2014     1 AM (Aug 9, 2014 to Aug 11, 2014)                           

TRANSITING MERCURY CONJUNCT NATAL PLUTO--This can be a two-sided transit. It indicates a time of very intense mental activity in which your thinking and communications with others will have an extremely penetrating quality. You are obsessed with getting to the bottom of every question and will not be satisfied with superficial answers. It is a good time for research and investigative activities. You have the capacity to influence others when necessary, making clear that what you say is truth, not opinion. Any aspect of these two planets gives you the ability to speak with persuasive force and vigor. In fact, others will believe you are right, even if you do not have the answer. It is critical that you take the feelings of others into consideration when you speak, or extreme opposition could result--even if they believe you. The other side of the transit is that others may do the same thing to you. It can indicate an extremely unpleasant mental power struggle in which you may be either the victim or the perpetrator. Or, you could become preoccupied and obsessed by a single idea or point of view which you cannot let go, until it seems to control your life for that day. This could be very intense while it lasts, but, fortunately, Mercury transits do not last very long.

Aug 10, 2014     1 PM (Aug 9, 2014 to Aug 11, 2014)                           

TRANSITING VENUS SEXTILE NATAL SATURN--Sextiles are supportive and this transit shows you in a positive way the duties and obligations that you have to live up to in your personal relationships. This will not be difficult for you, since the reality of your emotional relationships are extremely important to you. Honesty is the keyword here, and it is a good time to sit down with a loved one and arrive at a conscious understanding of what you expect from each other. It could also be a good time for beginning a new relationship. The transit is also good for business affairs, and for creative activities requiring close attention to details. Artistic endeavors will be especially favored.

Aug 10, 2014     8 PM (Aug 10, 2014 to Aug 11, 2014)                         

TRANSITING VENUS CONJUNCT NATAL SUN--This transit favors creative activities, and whatever artistic ability you have will be useful during its influences. You can express your talents and artistic ability more easily than usual. You are likely to want to share your creativity and your feelings with others, but you are not likely to feel too ambitious. It is a good time for entertaining and just plain enjoying yourself. Seek beautiful surroundings. You will be able to enjoy them more than ever during this time.

Aug 11, 2014     2 PM (Aug 11, 2014 to Aug 12, 2014)                         

TRANSITING SUN CONJUNCT NATAL PLUTO--The Sun illuminates the regeneration needs when in relation to Pluto. This transit will not allow you to stay where you are. There are probably several things that need fixing in your life and relationships, as well as mechanical and technical things. You will not be able to operate at a casual level in your life at this time. Pluto indicates positive change--if you can't fix it, you will tear it down, start over and do it right. Pluto doesn't make it easy--you may be challenged by others as to your ideas or your methodology. You will not appreciate the Plutonian energies from others, but you need to seek a level of understanding and cooperation. This can be a positive time for making many things right in your life and in the lives of those close to you. The transit may merely motivate you to repair something that has broken down, such as a car, an appliance, a relationship or someone's health. You will get deeply involved in whatever you do, as Pluto works from deep within your psyche.

Aug 11, 2014     4 PM (Aug 11, 2014 to Aug 12, 2014)                          

TRANSITING MERCURY CONJUNCT NATAL MERCURY--Mercury is mind and communications. When it is in the same degree in your present time that it was in your natal chart, the influences can be doubled. This is an extremely positive transit for all types of communications. Your mind is sharp and your words and ideas come easily and quickly. You will be able to follow the twists and turns that complex ideas and situations may take. Try to take advantage of this time when your mental energy is high and positive. Complete all communications needs and situations you can during this transit. You will find the interchange of ideas lively and intellectually fulfilling. If travel is strongly indicated, do it.

Aug 11, 2014          (Aug 10, 2014 to Aug 29, 2014)                    

TRANSITING MERCURY IN THE TENTH HOUSE--Transiting Mercury in the houses deals with the practical affairs that occupy your mind and shows what areas of activity will be influenced by your thoughts and communications. In the tenth house it influence you to pursue education for reasons of professional ambition. You have good organizational ability and the capacity to plan for the future. Your career is not likely to be accidental. You are able to communicate with people of power and prestige, and with the public, so that politics would be a natural for you. Whatever your occupation, it will involve communications media. Ambition is the keyword during this transit, but beware that it could take precedence over principles if you are not careful.

Aug 11, 2014     6 PM (Aug 11, 2014 to Aug 12, 2014)                          

TRANSITING MERCURY CONJUNCT THE NATAL MC--This transit with the Midheaven affects those areas related to your career, profession and/or vocation. You may receive an important communication regarding one of these areas, necessitating a well thought out response. This is a good time to discuss your goals and future plans regarding your career. You will be able to communicate these plans logically and effectively, making it appropriate to concentrating upon furthering your career. Use this transit to clarify your actions to others and seek their support.

Aug 12, 2014     7 AM (Aug 10, 2014 to Aug 14, 2014)                          

TRANSITING MARS TRINE NATAL MOON--This transit brings emotional intensity. You will feel everything more strongly and deeply. You will deal with others in a frank and honest manner, but you will be assertive. There could be a strong emotional involvement with a member of opposite sex. It will be difficult for you to be neutral with someone who might come into your life at this time--you could react with either love or hate, with no in-between. You are in a "fighting spirit" in a positive sense with this transit, and will stand up for what you believe in without stepping on the toes of others.

Aug 13, 2014    11 AM (Aug 11, 2014 to Aug 15, 2014)                         

TRANSITING MARS SEXTILE NATAL VENUS--This transit arouses the physical sexual drives. It favors an already existing relationship, for both will be able to give and receive from each other. It is also a good time for artistic expression and appreciation of beauty in all its forms. Two key themes of this transit are entertainment and fun. Enjoy. . . . .

Aug 14, 2014     1 PM (Aug 12, 2014 to Aug 16, 2014)                          

TRANSITING MARS TRINE NATAL URANUS--This can be a time of new activities and new encounters, some quite unexpected, that will generate both excitement and personal growth. You won't be satisfied with your daily routine, and this influence can help you break away and introduce fresh elements into your life. Psychological liberation gives you courage to break inhibitions and show off aspects of yourself that even you may not have known you had. This is a powerful aspect for new beginnings, filled with energy and courage. It is a time for personal growth and discovery which can be significant to your psychological development, as well as interesting and exciting.

Aug 15, 2014    12 AM (Aug 15, 2014 to Aug 16, 2014)                         

TRANSITING SUN CONJUNCT NATAL MERCURY--This conjunction transit brings energy and willpower to your thoughts. You will have lots of mental stamina and creativity in ideas, work, and friendships during this time. You will be able to enforce your ideas and decisions with willpower. The risk here, with all this mental power, is objectivity. It is difficult to see yourself as others see you, and your personal self-conception makes it difficult to differentiate between mind and ego. The transiting influences of the aspect bring the focus upon matters that apply directly to the self. It indicates a time for initiating communications and ideas with respect to your intentions toward yourself and others. It is a good time to make plans for the future, because you are likely to have a good understanding of your needs now. You need to practice getting Self out of the way however, and letting your energetic mind solve the problems and make the decisions. There is also a possibility of travel, as the restless tensions will make you want to move around.

Aug 15, 2014     3 AM (Aug 15, 2014 to Aug 16, 2014)                        

TRANSITING SUN CONJUNCT THE NATAL MIDHEAVEN--This is an excellent aspect for putting all your attention and energy into getting ahead and fulfilling your ambitions. Your home life may take a back seat while this aspect is in transit, and you are likely to be strong-willed and unwilling to make compromises. Pursue your objectives, but try not to be so willful that you alienate others unnecessarily.

Aug 15, 2014          (Aug 14, 2014 to Sep 17, 2014)                      

TRANSITING SUN IN THE TENTH HOUSE--When the Sun transits this house of your Natal chart, it will influence the departments of life most strongly affected by the individual will and power potential. Tenth house position generally indicates a time when you will be ambitious to attain positions of responsibility, power, and authority. You are likely to be rather dignified and you have a strong will to succeed. You will desire honor and recognition and will work hard to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to achieve your goals. You are probably a good manager and demand respect. You also want to set a good example for others. You need to watch out for an excessive love of power and for dictatorial attitudes.

Aug 16, 2014     9 AM (Aug 14, 2014 to Aug 18, 2014)                         

TRANSITING MARS TRINE NATAL MARS--This is a high-energy transit. It is a time to take the initiative, to start new projects, and enjoy the cooperation of others. Work toward goals that give credit to you, for Mars is an ego-oriented planet. Your self-confidence is high, and you can be positive and self-assertive without appearing aggressive. Work will not resist your energies. You may want to do something different from the same old grind, and new efforts could be favorable.

Aug 17, 2014    10 AM (Aug 15, 2014 to Aug 19, 2014)                         

TRANSITING MARS CONJUNCT NATAL THE ASCENDANT--This is the transit of self-assertion with regard to others. You will feel a need to let them know who you are and that you are a person to be reckoned with. Energies are extremely high; and you will need to beware of your temper at this time, and try to make proper use of your feelings of aggression. There could be opportunities for positive action to show the world what you can do, but you will need to be careful of other people's feelings because of the temptation to dominate them. This could bring out the worst in others, with the risk of fights and/or accidents. You need to use your energy appropriately, but take care that you don't overdo and burn out. Physical health could suffer otherwise. Practice a little patience, and you can make great progress with the energies and optimism of this transit. It could boost your self-worth immensely.

Aug 17, 2014          (Aug 15, 2014 to Oct 1, 2014)                       

TRANSITING MARS IN THE FIRST HOUSE--Mars transiting in the houses influences the departments of life in which you express your actions and desires. In the first house, we find the outgoing, aggressive people who have abundant energy. You will not be a bystander--you must be involved. You are ambitious and will be able to work hard now. Your competitive drive will make you seek recognition and public acclaim. You have abundant stamina and energy which enables you to accomplish much. You will insist on freedom in personal action and will not tolerate interference from others. You need to watch out for rash emotional impulsiveness and combativeness, and a tendency to get into physical fights.

Aug 20, 2014     8 PM (Aug 20, 2014 to Aug 21, 2014)                          

TRANSITING MERCURY OPPOSITE NATAL MOON--During this transit it may be difficult to keep emotional issues from affecting the clarity of your communications. Unconscious drives and impulses may influence your thinking now, and it is important that you try to bring the cause of these compulsions up to the conscious level. These feelings and emotions could be influenced by habits and speech patterns from your early childhood. This is a good time to look at the past and remove all of the negative compulsions you can recognize. Know that your mental effectiveness can be skewed during this transit. Try to postpone any major decisions and be careful to say what you really mean.

Aug 21, 2014     5 AM (Aug 21, 2014 to Aug 22, 2014)                          

TRANSITING MERCURY CONJUNCT NATAL VENUS--This transit can stimulate your appreciation of beauty, and your interest in art, music or poetry. It also could indicate that you are more able to express your love, in or out of a relationship. It could help you to understand the intricate patterns which underlie your life as a whole. It is a mental position, working more on the mind than on the feelings. However, you can emotionalize communications, and express your thoughts and feelings in a very articulate way. It should also be favorable for all financial and business transactions.

Aug 21, 2014     2 PM (Aug 21, 2014 to Aug 22, 2014)                          

TRANSITING MERCURY SEXTILE NATAL URANUS--Sextiles are supportive transits, and this one is no exception. This is a transit of new discoveries, new people, excitement and new interests. It is a good time to tackle old problems, but you won't want to spend the day in your usual routine. It will help you see fresh solutions for old problems. It is a time for learning about astrology and for meditating on the mystical.

Aug 22, 2014     5 AM (Aug 21, 2014 to Aug 23, 2014)                          

TRANSITING MERCURY SEXTILE NATAL MARS--This transit brings a high level of mental activity, supporting the best influences of Mercury and Mars. You can work very hard, and any project you attempt will go well. You are likely to want to do things on your own and for yourself, or at least for personal recognition. You will be able to communicate and present your case to others in a very forceful way during this time. Others may not be up to your work level, however, and you need to be patient with them. Your optimism and self confidence will allow you to take advantage of all opportunities that come your way during this aspect.

Aug 22, 2014     1 PM (Aug 21, 2014 to Aug 23, 2014)                         

TRANSITING VENUS SQUARE THE NATAL ASCENDANT--This is not a difficult square. In fact it can be quite pleasant for relationships, where you reach out to others, and give and receive affection. You will enjoy being with people and going out and having a good time. Try not to avoid work that has to be done, and beware of self-indulgence. Be careful of financial affairs and impulse buying.

Aug 22, 2014     1 PM (Aug 21, 2014 to Aug 23, 2014)                          

TRANSITING MERCURY SEXTILE THE NATAL ASCENDANT--This aspect quickens the mind and enhances communications skills. Self confidence and self-worth are enhanced. You will like to talk, and are more mentally alert than usual. It will be easy to reach agreements, and is a good tome to get rid of paperwork and to write letters. It is a good time for any kind of commercial or business transactions, contract negotiations, and/or buying and selling.

Aug 23, 2014     3 PM (Aug 23, 2014 to Aug 24, 2014)                          

TRANSITING VENUS TRINE NATAL JUPITER--This is one of the "best" transits, although of short duration. It brings grace, ease, and pleasant social interaction into your life. You will feel content, and it will rub off on others. It can be a good time to make a major investment, as financial interests are favored. You will not want to work at work however, but will tend to be lazy. Artistic interests are high, but from the standpoint of "enjoyment"--so ENJOY! . . . .

Aug 26, 2014     2 AM (Aug 25, 2014 to Aug 27, 2014)                          

TRANSITING VENUS SEXTILE NATAL NEPTUNE--This a short, pleasant transit which can arouse the creative and romantic imagination. Relationships are harmonious and can be enhanced by spiritual influences. Although, you should spend some time alone in a pleasant and beautiful environment: a landscape, seascape, flower garden, or forest. If it puts you into a sweet, dreamy fog, who's to say we don't need that kind of a day once in a while?

Aug 27, 2014     3 PM (Aug 26, 2014 to Aug 29, 2014)                        

TRANSITING MARS SQUARE NATAL PLUTO--This transit has two polarities--it can bring power struggles and disagreements, or it can help you transform and regenerate your world around you. Your energy level will be high and you could get a lot of work done--if you don't create too much opposition doing it. Your ambitions will be enhanced at this time, but they, too, could conflict with someone else. The lesson from this transit is to look at your recent past efforts for any loose ends or shortcuts that need to be attended to or corrected. If they can be cleaned up to the good of all, you should do so. However, if you can't do it without causing conflict with others, it might be better to wait till this transit passes. As in all transits with Pluto, the influences could be those of someone else relating to you, rather than you to them. Also, as in all Pluto aspects, anything attempted must be for the greater good or it either will not work, or it will not do you any good.

Aug 27, 2014     4 PM (Aug 27, 2014 to Aug 28, 2014)                         

TRANSITING VENUS CONJUNCT NATAL PLUTO--This transit combines the emotional influences of Venus with the deep, intense influences of Pluto. It can make you seek unusual and intense love experiences. You could be looking for escape from life through love. You need to be careful with the intensity if you are in a relationship, for you could send out the message that you are unhappy with things as they are. Avoid using love to manipulate your partner. Pluto will not support purely selfish efforts. This transit can bring a marvelous experience if your loved one can respond to your mood.

Aug 29, 2014          (Aug 28, 2014 to Sep 18, 2014)

You will seek out associations which will stimulate your mind, and you will both teach your friends and learn from them. You are open to all humanity, and are likely to have much compassion and insight into the larger social issues. You love truth, impartiality, and the ability to think with originality and objectivity. You need to take care that your ideas do not become eccentric or impractical during this transit.

Those with whom you come in contact will feel your mood and are likely to respond in kind. It is a good time to socialize and express your caring and affection for others. Enthusiasm for the arts may surface, and some pleasant travel could be an option. There could also be a burst in the expression of your talents.

All personal relationships are favored by this aspect. Work in creative activities only. You are more likely to want to daydream than to work, unless your profession is related to artistic expression. A good time for any social activity, since you feel warm and friendly to everyone. Don't waste the day by yourself.

You are likely to receive status and wealth from a romantic partner now.

TRANSITING MERCURY CONJUNCT NATAL SATURN--Mercury is the planet of mind and communication and Saturn is the planet of discipline. This combination (conjunction) transit can bring you very sharp precision of disciplined thought. It is a good time for work that requires precise planning and implementation. However, it is not a good time for long range plans that require a broad view. Your viewpoint is likely to be narrow and cautious now, and communications may suffer. You can be extremely critical, but should be careful to use this insight in positive ways. This is a good time to deal with negative thinking, since you are more likely to see what is wrong than what is right.

TRANSITING MERCURY SEXTILE NATAL SUN--This transit indicates a busy and mentally stimulating period. The phone is likely to "ring off the hook", and it may seem as if everybody wants to contact you. Your mind is sharp, alive, and ready. It is a good time to reinforce how you stand on any given situation, and communicate your honesty and forthrightness. Group discussions are likely to be positive and you will command the respect of others. Travel is possible.

TRANSITING MARS SQUARE NATAL MERCURY--This transit brings a high energy level and great capacity for mental effort. However, your ego identifies with your ideas and you will not countenance disagreement. If any obstacle gets in your way, you are likely to respond with anger and irritation. Be careful how you talk to others, for the risk of arguments and disputes is very high. You will be strong enough to carry out your points of view, but try not to ride roughshod over others. Be careful of using any machinery or sharp objects, especially if angry, as you are likely to be accident prone during this transit.

TRANSITING MARS SQUARE THE NATAL MIDHEAVEN--The action influences of Mars are squared of against your highest desires for yourself: goals, honor, career, and personal achievements. This transit can make you over-aggressive and self-assertive. You need to avoid impulsiveness, and to consider the feelings of others. Where your ego is involved, conflicts can develop in your professional and domestic life. If you can harness the energy in a positive way, much can be accomplished. If not, it may be best to lay low during this aspect.

TRANSITING SUN OPPOSITE NATAL MOON--This transit can bring out tensions between your personal needs and your public and professional obligations. As the Sun "illuminates" your emotions, you may feel like you're in a tug-o-war between "me and them". The purpose of this conflict is to help you learn to balance your emotions with your public duties. If you have been pursuing your public life by covering up your emotions, this transit can be quite painful. Your emotional nature will come out one way or another. On the positive side, this can also be a time of high energy and you can achieve a great deal. In your personal life, too, the tensions may become heavy if you have been suppressing your feelings. This is especially likely in relationships with spouse and other family members. You could be very compulsive and react to those you love in ways that you do not understand. The lesson to be learned here is how to operate in your daily life by acknowledging and accepting your emotions, and functioning in tune with your "gut" feelings.

TRANSITING SUN CONJUNCT NATAL VENUS--This transit provides power and energy to the emotions and to artistic expression. It helps you to love life and love yourself, though you may need to watch out for narcissism. During this progression you are fond of fun and social activities. The aspect gives you beauty and ease in self expression and the ability to bring happiness to others. You should get along especially well with children, and you have strong affections and romantic drives. It could bring new light to romantic involvements and love relationships. You need to make new contacts and friendships, for it is a good time for group activities. You may be a little prone to self indulgence during this transit, and may need to watch out for impulse spending.

TRANSITING SUN SEXTILE NATAL URANUS--This transit tends to stimulate your curiosity and imagination, as well as illustrate your sense of freedom. You are likely to encounter new and enlightening experiences through activities with friends and neighbors, giving you a larger insight into the world around you. You catch onto ideas more quickly than usual, making it a good time to participate in any mental activity. It can be an aspect of creative change, and keeping your individuality is more important to you than living up to others' expectations. It is a good time for positive changes in your immediate surroundings.

TRANSITING SUN SEXTILE NATAL MARS--This transit brings high energy and enhances your faith in your own ability. It provides an excellent time for accomplishing all kinds of work and physical activity. In fact, physical activity and exercise is extremely important at this time. Sun is energy and Mars is action, and physical activity is necessary for physical, mental, and spiritual health. You can work well with others during this time, but you will also be assertive and self-confident in your own right. However, others will not be threatened by your ego, and it is good to work in cooperation with them. It is not a good time to strike out alone and on your own. This transit can also bring opportunities for leadership.

TRANSITING SUN SEXTILE THE NATAL ASCENDANT--This transit illuminates the Self with a need to seek recognition from others. In group activities you will want to lead and the others will sense your need for that and won't seem to mind. Your need for social activities will be strong, and will be fulfilled by sharing with others. This works both ways, for no one is alone in this world. Others will respect you for being open and honest, and everybody likes to be needed.

TRANSITING SATURN SQUARE NATAL PLUTO--This aspect ties your condition to mass karma. You are likely to feel that you have the weight of the whole world upon your shoulders. Actually, it is beyond your powers and responsibilities to help Saturn "discipline" the "underworld" of Pluto! However, you may feel you have to resort to strong measures to achieve professional goals during this time. Beware of the temptation to use occult forces to attain power over others. Use your psychic connections to keep your own house in order.

TRANSITING JUPITER SQUARE NATAL ASCENDANT--This is an excellent transit for relationships, and for opportunities that can benefit you. If you use relationships to your advantage, keep a sense of humility and gratitude, for the temptation will be to give nothing in return. It can be a "lucky" transit in both your personal life and your work, and it depends upon your right attitude toward letting people help you. Remember to pay attention to details.

TRANSITING PLUTO TRINE NATAL VENUS--This Trine will bring about a deep intensity with all the Venus affairs. It will emphasize all the romantic and creative aspects of your life and will provide positive support for enhancing all these affairs which are good for you and that have a good structure. It will also provide opportunities for improving those areas which are not working well now. If the structure is unworkable, insight and opportunity to tear them down and start over with the least painful side effects can be revealed. Pluto is the planet of regeneration, and its influences always work for the greater good. If your motives are purely selfish and personal, Pluto influences will not help you. The influences are intense and powerful, but even the supportive influences of Pluto may not always feel like fun.

TRANSITING PLUTO OPPOSITE NATAL URANUS--This aspect is both Universal and personal in its influences. Almost everyone in your age bracket shares these influences which indicate a period of massive changes. Many of them will affect world order, causing drastic changes in government philosophies and social responses. Many of the changes will be brought about by revolutions, which could be both social and/or military. These two planets in combination indicate creative revolution, which connotates regeneration. They are likely to affect you on a personal level by instigating revolt against many factors in your life which have made life routine and boring. You will seek new challenges and interests. This can occur in almost any area of your life, but both personal and professional relationships are likely to be affected. Severity of your adjustments will depend very much upon your attitude. If you fight change, it will be more difficult: if you seek constructive solutions and are open to the changes, it can be less difficult. The need for these changes may appear instantly, but their origins can be very much in the past and may have been buried in your subconscious. Now Pluto is saying "Regenerate!" and Uranus is saying "NOW!". Preventing these changes is probably not even possible, but would certainly not be desirable. Understand what is happening and learn to flow with things, giving a positive push whenever you can see the opportunity. Don't waste time in moping and trying to hang on to the unproductive past. Get on with what is necessary to regenerate your life in the areas which are being affected now, so that you can rebuild the structures which will make your life more complete and fulfilling for you and for those around you.
