A "Rebirth of our Explorative Communications Insights
Newsletters" and "Early Autumn Greetings" to You!
There is always
something interesting about creating a new beginning during
the early part of the fall season when "parts of life are dying
to be reborn again".
I've been through a lot since my last Exp.
Com. newsletter that I sent out May 1, 2017. I nearly lost my
life to a totally unexpected cardiac arrest on the afternoon of
Saturday, May 27, 2017 @ 3:35 PM PDT. I was running in Sutro Park
with the intention of running back when I collapsed while overlooking
the ocean on that mild spring afternoon. Fortunately, there were
many people in the park at the time and with the CPR, the paramedic
response, and hospitalization followed by various treatments, I
survived. I'm still considering the
astrological indications relating to my natal chart at that time and
the associations haven't quite surfaced. After substantial rest
and recovery, I returned to my full-time work. I'm
not aware of crossing over however I had one very interesting synchronitial experience with my soulmate
Karlene. I'd be open to elaborating on
On September 13, 2017, my father passed away and my brother and I
became extensively involved in memorial administration and plans.
This brought family, relatives, and friends together and I was able to
write and share a summary of his life and what he meant to me, our
family, and the community.
Following this, my brother and I embarked on selling our family home
which kept us busy communicating and negotiating for several months
until we reluctantly sold our family home of nearly 50 years on May 8,
2018. It was a sad day but part of the many life changes underway
in life. My extended family and friends have many rich and deep memories
we shared just east of Walla Walla, Washington.
In September 2018, that same year, I embarked on a new adventure of
buying my own home on a piece of property in Southwest Port Angeles,
Washington. On a recent vacation one year later in September 2019,
I was able to visit my new property and our former family
property. Although I will miss things about San Francisco, I'm looking forward to living on the northern
Olympic Peninsula of Western Washington. It will be kind of like
coming back home.
In yet another major life change is that ,
I've retired from my full time work at a medical center for the past 27
years. I supported medical research administration at the
facility for the past 11.5 years. This is allowing me to take
time to take classes, continue my volunteer work, focus on my small
business, travel, read, do my creative arts, and rest. I have
been just as busy since I retired but it is opening some new doors to
enjoy a greater experience of life.
Astrological View of Current Times
I probably do not
need to convince you that we are living in some very unusual and
challenging times personally, professional, and politically. It won't be long before Mercury enters Scorpio and Mars
enters Libra. There is naturally a strong emphasis on personal
and professional relationships with Venus in Libra along with the Sun, Mercury, and Mars. When Mercury
moves into Scorpio, we'll feel a tendency
toward deeper and more intense thinking, analysis, and research.
As we head into mid-late October and additional planets begin
moving into Scorpio, there'll be an increased
emphasis on withdrawing within. This correlates with the change
of season with increasing darkness
and the gradual march toward the Winter Solstice in December.
Jupiter will remain in Sagittarius until December 5th. Wherever this falls
in your birth chart, take advantage of the abundance of whatever gifts
this brings you. Many of us find it easy for Jupiter to be
overlooked, quiet, or invisible so it seems that even with this "lucky"
planet, we need to provide the work needed to set up the conditions to
make things happen. What I find is that Jupiter expands
everything in abundance, positively, negatively, or even both. Jupiter
has a way of bringing that to us.
Now with Uranus retrograde in early
Taurus, there is much general focus on change, unexpected occurrences,
and the potential for brilliance in areas involving finance, agriculture and tangible goods. Changes may
occur suddenly, be ushered into the scene, and then disappear as
quickly as they entered. I really think Uranus in Taurus is going
to be an incredibly interesting time, but good old-fashioned common
sense and logic will need to be used sensibly. Where is Uranus in your
With Neptune in Pisces, we'll continue to see greater emphasis on some very
emotional, nebulous, and invisible types of things. The opioid
epidemic, teen and veteran suicide, unusual hard-to-diagnose outbreaks,
and difficult to trace activity in our government / administration will
continue to be illusive. On the positive side, spirituality and science
will gradually come closer to being bridged over the coming
years. This comes through when surgical operating staff see
tangible evidence of spirit visitation on the "other
side". There is much more coming....."be
observant and stay tuned".
Newsletter Plans and Classes in Website and Blog Development
again I want to explore how to launch adding my
"Explorative Communications Insights Newsletters" into a
new sub-domain within my "www.ExplorativeCommunications.com"
website. Different parts of my small business are included on
my website but my newsletters are not yet
I'm going to be taking a class beginning in
October 2019 on "Building Individual Websites and Blogs"
which will be valuable for my relatively non-Geeky mind. I
am looking forward to being able to add the new
"Index" sub-domain, the "htaccess"
file, and images to link to my site so they're
viewable. Slow progress is being made and life often takes
patience. Recommendations are also welcome.
An Overview of
the USA and Current Astrological Trends
As in the
photo above taken while traveling through the Black Hills of South
Dakota, life in USA politics has its ups and downs in its own
evolution just as people and other entities do. There are
several factors highlighting money and our national values. If
we look at the often-utilized USA Sibley chart using July 4, 1776
5:14 PM in Philadelphia, PA, the Sun, Moon, Venus, and Mercury fall
in the 10th house in Libra at the time of this summary. The
10th house places a tremendous
amount of emphasis on the nation's leadership, its public image, that
which is publicly viewable, and its visible
There's a lot of emphasis on finances as
well. Pluto is in the early stages of progressing through the
USA 2nd house of money and values. Due to the current
presidency including questions about integrity, the future economy,
in-depth discussion and research being done
about the ethics and legality of certain actions taken by Donald
Trump, there are untested questions about what one person, this
president can perform without violating the U.S. Constitution and the
laws of the U.S. The USA is heading toward its Pluto return in
the 2nd house of the Sibley chart. Recently Retrograde Saturn in
Capricorn has also been in opposition
to the USA Cancer Sun stressing our 7th house foreign affairs area by
bringing serious differences of opinion about dealing with other
countries and international enemies. Now, the question of how much
power the Executive branch should have to seek information about
opposing candidates has arisen. This is a question we have
never faced with any other American president. In fact,
who would have thought that the "Whistleblower" on this
would be accused of "treason" and would actually
face threats within the USA?!?
Meanwhile as Neptune continues to transit through the USA 3rd house
of communications including writing, articles, and media, no one
knows exactly what to believe and there are many
"unknowns". The major aspect that so many astrologers
are anticipating in the future is the Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto
conjunction beginning around mid-January 2020. This is likely to be a
monumental and pivotal time period with the
spotlight shining brightly on finances and values within the USA and
its future. We shall see.
Cycles of Astrology
One of the
things that fascinates me the most is the cycles with which astrology
occurs. There are the faster planets including the Moon which
orbits the planet Earth approximately once every 30+ days.
There are the medium-distant planets that are
able to make several cycles of orbit around the Sun during our
lifetimes including Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. And then there
are the Outer planets that may not even make a complete cycle around
the Sun and the zodiac signs that we track in our lifetime including
Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
A significant point to note related to cycles is what makes astrology
very interesting when it comes to affecting
people, organizations, and nations. It's
very basic yet it becomes equally very complex in a hurry. When
planets pass through various astrological signs, houses, and make
aspects to natal planets all at various dates and times, it makes for
a very interesting mix of conditions.
As if it is drawing low, medium, and high levels of biorhythmic
energy, motivation, social - love, financial skill, and
health over the short and long term, each of our natal charts
are being affected. This is a factor that makes astrology
so complex and potentially confusing. This is also one of the
primary factors that cause many people to want to keep their distance
from astrology....it's Not a "black and
Another significant factor is that astrology has a reputation of being
used as a form of entertainment paralleling "Hollywood" fun
and games that are known especially well through the "Daily
Horoscopes" that we are used to reading in the newspaper or in
other publications. Yes, there is an element of truth and value
available through daily horoscopes but they
will naturally be more general. I personally enjoy looking at
the complexity of individual birth charts and the various transits
and trends that take place from day to day, week to week, month to
month, and year to year. These different cycles all
contain value, may intersect in some cases, and have impact with
their own degree of intensity and in their own unique ways. This is
one reason why astrology is so infinite and sometimes unquantifiable.
The tightness of the orb of the conjunction, square, opposition,
sextile, or trine, the planets being affected, and nature of the
natal chart are all factors as to how the individual or nation
will be affected. That's why when
people have many major aspects at once, especially associated with
certain natal planets and placements, there can be numerous major
life changes all within a notable period of time. We've either
experienced this ourselves or known of people who were hit with a
string of life events happening almost rhythmically time after
time. These may include what we perceive as negative and
positive events. Hence, cycles are among the factors that make
astrology a very interesting
