Astrologers are an odd bunch. They speak a language that most don’t understand. They see patterns in the sky: it talks to them. And they are driven to bring this message to others. This is what Michael Lutin says about astrologers, “We’re a community of people and we don’t belong to the rest of the world, because once you step into metaphysics in any profound or deep way, and once you commit yourself to this life, you’re never going to completely be in their world again.”

It can get lonely and you can feel very isolated if you’re pursuing a passion that’s not mainstream. That didn’t happen to me. When I got into astrology big time last year, I already had a bunch of astrologers as my Facebook friends. Fine writers, great astrologers, and kindred spirits. Maybe it was my progressed Moon in Aquarius and in my natal Eleventh House that made me reach out to total strangers on Facebook and request them to add me as their “friend.” Not random strangers, but people with whom I share a deep passion for astrology. Once I entered the astrology “loop” on Facebook, others start adding me: friends of friends, both astrologers and astrology enthusiasts. I now have more than a hundred such people from all over the world as “friends.” (more…)

My natal Uranus is sorely afflicted, you see
I understand why you can’t keep loving me

My hair’s messy and my mind’s always humming
So I don’t always hear the notes you’re strumming

I would like to be like you: safe and sound
But I can’t forget about the wonders to be found

At times, I can’t be earth-bound, I look to the sky
I’ve got to figure this thing out, answer every why

You don’t have to tell me, I know you’re leaving
And I maybe a wild ol’ Uranian, but I’m still grieving.

 

 

Note for myself: Written when the Moon was 22 degree of Aquarius.

Sometimes Saturn casts
Its coming shadow on me
Prognosticating sorrows I know
Will eventually befall me.

And Uranus doesn’t let up
He rifts and rives my soul
Tears me away from the known
And plunks me on an alien shore
Where I find myself all alone.

Neptune also plays his invidious part
I can no longer tell who lies
Is it me or it is you?
And is there anything
Such as a universal truth?

I’m sitting here with a bowed head
And folded hands
Submitting to Pluto’s volcanic passions
As he rolls over me
Crushing me into the dirt
The rubble
The evil that is humanity

And I take it
Faith like a steady flame in my heart
My spirit buffeted but not broken
My heart bruised but still beating
Very much the child of Sun and Jupiter
Who trine
Because once, long ago,
When you loved me
You blessed my soul.

Scene 1: The world waits with baited breath for the Uranus Retrograde on 1-July-2009 and Saturn, editor-in-chief, call in Mercury.

Saturn: You wanted to do a piece on Uranus, right? Well, it’s stationing ready to go retrograde tomorrow. Go get a story. 

Mercury: Yeah, Chief, right. I’ve been thinking about Uranus a lot. Also the Moon, I mean the Sun’s in Cancer and the time’s ripe for… 

Saturn: Stop waving your hands like that, it’s giving me a headache. What do you mean, the Moon? I called you in here to talk about Uranus. It’s big news right now and we need the blog hits.

Mercury: Blog hits, right! I was looking at the stats and… *knocks over the inkstand in his excitement*

Saturn: Out! This minute! And I want the story in today!

************************************************ 

 Scene 2:  Mercury is sharpening pencils, talking to his office buddies, checking his e-mail, Facebook and Twitter accounts while searching online for Uranus’s current address.

Venus: So why did the Big Guy call you in? He’s so hot. Power is such an aphrodisiac. *sighs*

Mercury: Mr. I’ve-got-a-steel-rod-up-my-you-know-what wants a story on Uranus. Uranus, I tell you! Hey! Did anyone ever notice “Uranus” can be broken into “your anus?”

*Pluto, who’s been brooding quietly at his computer screen, looks up at this, his eyes shining with a dark light*

Mars: *leering at Venus* Give it to me, baby! 

Mercury: I need to do this today! Anyone know where Uranus is? Guys, just focus for a minute!

Moon: *hurt* Why are you yelling? It’s upsetting. 

Chiron: Here, sweetie, sniff my lavender handkerchief, you’ll feel better.

Sun: The Uranus retro is a headlines story right now. Why’d he ask you to do it? *glowers jealously at Mercury*

Neptune: *trails in wafting Chanel No. 5 and lavender chiffon* Hi, darlings. What a lovely day! The sun is out, the breeze is blowing and I’ve been having the most far-out dreams. In fact, I was just telling Uranus…

Mercury: Uranus? You know where he is?

Neptune: Why, certainly, darling. We’re in mutual reception at the moment, you know.

Mercury takes the address, gathers his pencils, his Dictaphone and rushes out of the door.

************************************************ 

Scene 3: Uranus’ study-laboratory. Mercury is sitting perched on the edge of a chair over-flowing with books, papers and a house-cat. His host is busy running numbers on his computer and dashing around the room connecting various mysterious devices into plug-points.

Mercury: So, thanks for seeing me. I know you’re busy and all…

There’s a minor explosion from one of the devises, Mercury jumps. The cat sleeps on undisturbed.

Uranus: Damn! Gave it too much juice! Double damn!

Mercury: It must be because of the station. I was reading how stationing planets become very powerful.

Uranus is not listening; he is too busy trying to prevent a fire from breaking out in his house. Mercury takes out his Dictaphone and starts following Uranus around the room.

Mercury: So, like I told you over the phone, my editor wants me to do a piece on you and I was wondering if you could tell me what you’re doing with all these gizmos right now. *shoves the mike under Uranus’ nose*

Uranus: *blinks at the mike and notices the bright-eyed reporter for the first time* By thunder! Where did you spring from?

Mercury: *undaunted* I’m doing a story on you, remember? So what you upto here?

Uranus: THE IDEA: About 10:45 PM Calgary, Canada

Take note of that. I’m too busy right now to stop and explain, but…

I think I’ve had a moment of utter brilliance, and it is no mistake that you are here for it.

I believe I’ve just had a gigantic intuitive leap (backed by logic). I think I’ve figured out a very cunning way to benefit you, to (potentially greatly) benefit myself, and generally raise the good karma level for all of us. All with a simple series of actions.

Expect to see the first results on your end Friday. Goodbye! **

Mercury: Okay, got that. I need more information on…

Uranus: Can’t now. Busy! Busy!

There’s another explosion. So loud that even the Uranus-immune cat wakes up. Seeing that he has lost his host’s attention, Mercury stuffs the Dictaphone back into his bag and sees himself out muttering under his breath about weird Uranian types and hardnosed Saturn-ruled editors.  

************************************************ 

Scene 4: Mercury is back in office and frantically reading Erin Sullivan’s Retrograde Planets: Traversing the Inner Landscape when his phone rings:

Mercury: *while still reading the book* Yeah, ‘sup?

Saturn: I hope the article’s ready. I want to take a look at it before it goes to the press. You have 15 minutes.

Mercury: Yeah, it’s all done. I was just checking for typos and… *Saturn’s disconnected the call*

Mercury thumbs through the rest of the book, switches on the Dictaphone, starts typing while simultaneously calling Jupiter to see if they’re still meeting in the evening for a drink. Fifteen minutes later, in Saturn’s office:

Saturn: Odd. Very odd. What’s the big surprise he’s talking about?   

Mercury: We’ll find out Friday, sir.

Saturn: Hmm. Make sure you cover that story. See if you can get an exclusive.

The scene fades with Saturn anticipating being the first to break the story and raking in the hits, and the exhausted Mercury nodding in distracted agreement.
