Κυριαρχία: Διάδοση του φωτός, του πολιτισμού

Θετικές όψεις: Πνεύμα που αγαπά την ειρήνη, τη δικαιοσύνη, την επιστήμη και τις τέχνες, διαπρέπει στη λογοτεχνία.

Αρνητικές όψεις: Άγνοια, δουλεία, μισαλλοδοξία


Μοίρα 11: Μοίρα του ηθικού κινδύνου.

Εδώ υπάρχει μια τάση για καλούς συνεταιρισμούς. Το άτομο μπορεί να είναι ένας υπέροχος και φιλόξενος Αμφιτρύωνας, χαρούμενος, κοινωνικός, γενναιόδωρος, τρυφερός, που αγαπάει τις ευχάριστες αλλαγές γύρω του, άτομο γεμάτο συμπάθεια αλλά και λίγο αδύναμο, αναποφάσιστο, που χαίρεται μεν να συνεργάζεται αλλά και δειλό για να προχωρήσει σε μεγαλειώδεις καινοτομίες.
Ανάλογα με το περιβάλλον και την εκπαίδευση, άντρας ή γυναίκα, θα βασιστεί κυρίως στα ένστικτά του, θα κάνει συμβιβασμούς, από δειλία, ίσως και να βρεθεί στην άβολη θέση του αποπλανημένου. Η συμπεριφορά του θα παρεξηγηθεί αρκετές φορές, καθώς τα άτομα αυτής της μοίρας, αγαπούν τα γέλια και τον αισθησιασμό.
Η εσωτερική διάθεση δεν είναι κάτι κακό, αλλά το να είναι κάποιος αδύναμος, ή το να διασκεδάζει με τα λάθη του, το να δείχνει πάρα πολύ μεγάλη ανοχή των πράξεών του, δικαιολογώντας τον εαυτό του κάθε φορά, το να αδιαφορεί για τα καλά, είναι κάτι που εμποδίζει την ανάκτηση της δύναμης του χαρακτήρα, και τη δύναμη της θέλησης πράγματα που απαιτούνται για την ευτυχία ενός ανθρώπου.
Εδώ βρίσκεται ο αστερισμός του «Μικρού Λέοντος» που οπωσδήποτε μπορεί να βοηθήσει επιδρώντας ευεργετικά στο όλο θέμα, διότι βελτιώνει τις κακές διαθέσεις αυτής της μοίρας και επιβεβαιώνει τα καλά, με το δώρο μιας ευγενικής φύσης, γενναιόδωρης, ήσυχης, ντροπαλής αλλά ενδόμυχα λίγο δειλής , η οποία όμως δεν αναιρεί τις δυνατότητες για να κατακτήσει εξέχουσες θέσεις.


Μοίρα 12: Μοίρα των πλεονεκτημάτων.

Αν και το άτομο δεν κλήθηκε για να ζήσει αναγκαστικά μια ζωή γεμάτη αδράνεια, ο επαγγελματικός του βίος, θα είναι ευτυχισμένος και ειρηνικός, δεν θα διαταραχθεί από οποιαδήποτε υπερβολική φιλοδοξία, εσωτερικά ή εξωτερικά. Έτσι λοιπόν θα ευνοηθούν διαφορετικές πλευρές: πρώτα η εργασία του που θα είναι ήρεμη και ισχυρή, η φροντίδα του για κάθε εργαζόμενο, (εάν είναι ο ίδιος το αφεντικό) αλλά και πνευματική ποιότητα όπως το να είναι τα άτομα αυτής της μοίρας στοχαστικά, διαρκώς σε εγρήγορση και ενεργά πάντα, ενώ δεν παραμελούν να καλλιεργήσουν το πνεύμα τους, να απολαμβάνουν τον ελεύθερο χρόνο τους και στη συνέχεια (με αρωγό την τύχη) , να δρέπουν τους καρπούς του δικού τους έργου. Ως προς τις επιχειρήσεις, ευνοούνται τα μεγάλα οικιστικά συγκροτήματα, τα γεωργικά κτήματα, ενοίκια ή μερίσματα που συνήθως αποκτώνται με τον γάμο. Αυτή η ζωδιακή μοίρα, είναι συχνά η κατάλληλη να φέρει κληρονομιές. Έχει παρατηρηθεί πως άτομα γεννημένα σ’ αυτή τη μοίρα, συνήθως ευνοούνται από κληρονομιά διαφόρων συγγενών τους που δεν έχουν παιδιά.
Η γυναίκες που γεννήθηκαν στην 12η του Λέοντα, είναι ιδιαίτερα γοητευτικές.


Μοίρα 13: Μοίρα του πείσματος.

Όπου αποφασίσει να ριζώσει, εκεί και θα "κολλήσει" τη ζωή του. Ωστόσο έχει τη σοφία να μην θέσει κατά πολύ υψηλότερα τον πήχυ από όσο φτάνουν οι δυνάμεις του, γι’ αυτό και θα πετύχει στην προσπάθειά του, γιατί αντιμετωπίζει με γενναιότητα κάθε δύσκολη κατάσταση και παραμένει σταθερός και συνεπής στα σχέδιά του.
Θα αγαπήσει όσα χόμπι ή όσες εργασίες έχουν σχέση με μεγάλα ζώα, με την κτηνοτροφία, την συντήρηση αλόγων, την ιππασία, ή την γεωργική επιστήμη, κλπ. Γενικά θα έχει καλή τύχη και θα αποκτήσει μια σημαντική περιουσία.
Πατάει σταθερά στα πόδια του, και έχει επίσης τεράστια ψυχική δύναμη, καθώς και επιμονή. Μπορεί να δώσει τη γνώμη του, να μεταδώσει τις αρχές του, τις πεποιθήσεις του, τα επιχειρήματά του, τα οποία συνήθως υπερασπίζεται με πάθος. Απεχθάνεται το να εξαρτάται φυσικά ή ηθικά από κάποιον ή από κάτι.
Με άσχημες θέσεις των πλανητών στο γενέθλιο, υπάρχει η τάση για ψέματα καθώς και η τάση για εμπλοκή σε υποθέσεις ποινικής φύσεως. Ως προς την υγεία, υπάρχει ο κίνδυνος για δηλητηριάσεις.


Μοίρα 14: Μοίρα της ραθυμίας.

Άτομα χωρίς ιδιαίτερα ενδιαφέροντα, ευχαριστημένα από μια ζωή μονότονη, αρκεί να μην υποφέρουν, να μη νιώσουν πόνο και να μην παρεκκλίνουν από τα τετριμμένα. Η καθημερινή ρουτίνα είναι αγαλλίαση γι’ αυτό το άτομο δεν ζητάει πολλά από τη ζωή του, - ούτε καν την πνευματική του ανέλιξη – αλλά νιώθει ασφάλεια μέσα σε μια αδιατάρακτη και επίπεδη καθημερινότητα.
Αυτό είναι πιο εμφανές σε ωροσκόπια που επηρεάζονται από κακές πλανητικές όψεις – συνήθως όταν ο Δίας, ο Άρης και ο Ερμής προσβάλλονται πολύ, ή δεν βρίσκονται σε ισχυρές θέσεις και γωνίες.
Εάν για μεγάλο χρονικό διάστημα δεν βρουν κάποια δραστηριότητα, ή αφεθούν μοιρολατρικά σε αυτή την τάση, σταδιακά γίνονται όλο και πιο αδέξιοι, ανίκανοι, σχεδόν τεμπέληδες, και μοιρολάτρες, άτομα που περιφρονούν και χλευάζουν την ενεργητικότητα και τις δραστηριότητες των άλλων γενικά. Η απραξία και η αδράνεια δημιουργεί φυσικά πολύ δυσάρεστες καταστάσεις.
Παρ’ όλ’ αυτά, πιθανότατα θα είναι άτομα πλούσια, από την γέννησή τους ή, τουλάχιστον, θα διάγουν άνετο βίο, χωρίς οικονομικές δυσκολίες, θεωρώντας πως η περιουσία είναι κάτι που δικαιωματικά τους ανήκει και όχι ένα δώρο που πρέπει να αποκτήσουν εργαζόμενοι σκληρά. Είναι τα χαρακτηριστικά άτομα που τρώνε όσα έχουν σπείρει οι άλλοι, γόνοι οικογενειών στις οποίες εργάσθηκαν σκληρά οι γονείς για να τα βρουν όλα έτοιμα τα τέκνα (αφορά πάντα τα ωροσκόπια με τις όψεις που προαναφέραμε). Σε πιο ισορροπημένα ωροσκόπια, όσοι γεννήθηκαν εδώ, έχουν την τάση για «τεμπελιά» αλλά με σωστές προτροπές από γονείς, φίλους και περιβάλλον, βρίσκουν το δρόμο τους, ίσως λίγο καθυστερημένα, αλλά στο τέλος επιδεικνύουν αξιοθαύμαστο ζήλο με ό,τι καταπιαστούν.


Μοίρα 15: Μοίρα της Φιλικής κατεύθυνσης.

Άτομα με πολλές συμπάθειες, αξιαγάπητα, που έχουν την υποστήριξη πιστών και αφοσιωμένων φίλων. Έχουν πολλούς προσωπικούς φίλους και ένα πολύ κοινωνικό πνεύμα, χωρίς καθόλου εγωισμό. Ασχολούνται συνήθως με δημόσιες υποθέσεις, τους ενδιαφέρουν τα κοινά, είναι αλτρουιστές, και δεν χάνουν ευκαιρία να βοηθήσουν όποιον έχει την ανάγκη τους. Φιλάνθρωποι και γεμάτοι ευγενικά συναισθήματα προς τους συνανθρώπους τους, είναι πάντα πάροχοι πνευματικού υλικού. Είναι πάνω απ’ όλα άνθρωποι με όλη τη σημασία της λέξης, καλοί και ευχάριστοι, γενναιόδωροι και δεν θα δίσταζαν να παρέμβουν και να διαμαρτυρηθούν για κάθε αδικούμενο.

Αστρο-βιογραφια του Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson (March 3, 2009)Pop legend Michael Jackson died of cardiac arrest Thursday afternoon, June 25, 2009. His passing closes an epic chapter in American and global culture, one that carried the Motown phenomenon of the 1960s, whereby black American music began its crossover to mass appeal, into the 70s, 80s and beyond.
A figure of mystery and controversy, a man perpetually chasing his lost childhood, Jackson’s’ peculiar and utterly unique life embodied American culture’s desperation to stay relevant, interesting and at the center of attention. An immensely gifted singer, dancer, songwriter and businessman, Jackson’s talent and ambition led him and his family out of poverty and into royalty status, but at the eventual expense of his well-being.

—————————————————

The natal chart

Michael Joseph Jackson was born in Gary, Indiana on August 29, 1958, probably close to midnight, with a natal horoscope that (regardless of his birth time) includes a three-part conjunction, connecting the North Node and Jupiter in Libra with Neptune in Scorpio, signifying his larger-than-life imagination and mythology, and the ability to express creative ideas on a universal level.
Michael Jackson North Node and Jupiter in Libra conjunct Neptune in Scorpio
The cross-sign connection being a reflection of the double-edged consequences of Jackson’s unique ability to detach himself from reality, a quality that ironically underlined both his superhuman talent and vision, and the ominous and puzzling accounts of scandal in his adult years.
—————————————————

The death chart, part 1: Jupiter-Neptune conjunction recurrence transit in Aquarius

Jackson was declared dead at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles at 2:26 p.m., having been found unconscious and not breathing two hours earlier. At the time of his death, there was a close triple conjunction of Chiron, Neptune and Jupiter (all retrograde), mirroring the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction in Jackson’s natal chart, making what is called a recurrence transit.
Michael jackson Jupiter-Neptune conjunction recurrence transit
The conjunction transit of Jupiter and Neptune occurs approximately every thirteen years, and having only lived to the age of 50, Jackson only experienced four recurrence transit periods in his life, including the one at the time of his death in 2009. Outlined below is a survey of the other three Jupiter-Neptune conjunction recurrence periods in Jackson’s life, a planetary account of how these transits coincided with major turning points in his life and mythology.
—————————————————

1971: Goin’ Back To Indiana, Jupiter-Neptune conjunct in Sagittarius

Michael Jackson rose to fame with his brothers Jackie, Marlon, Tito and Jermaine, in the Jackson 5, who signed to Motown Records in November 1968, when Michael was only ten years-old, and began their rise to fame over the course of the following three years, scoring number one hits with I Want You Back, Who’s Lovin’ You, ABC, The Love You Save, I’ll Be There and Never Gonna Say Goodbye.
Although already the group’s lead singer and frontman, Michael got his first shot and going solo when he sang a cover of Frank Sinatra’s It Was A Very Good Year without his brothers for an appearance on Diana Ross’ ABC-TV variety special, Diana! on April 18, 1971.
Jupiter-Neptune conjunction recurrence transit in Sagittarius
Jupiter and Neptune were conjunct in Sagittarius during the taping of the show in early 1971 and its broadcast that spring, marking the beginning of Jackson’s first recurrence transit period, which would extend throughout what would prove to be one of the most pivotal years of his early career.
—————————————————
Thanks to their own young age, the Jackson 5’s appeal to children was guaranteed, and sure enough the group’s image was manufactured into a Saturday morning cartoon for ABC television. The first episode made its debut at 8:30 a.m. on September 11, 1971, and featured a plot line that perpetuated the Motown-crafted myth that the group had been discovered by Diana Ross (in reality singer Bobby Taylor secured them their Motown break during the summer of 1968), who provided her own voice for the role, even though actors were used for the speaking parts of the five Jackson brothers.
Jackson 5ive 1971
Michael’s Jupiter-Neptune conjunction recurrence transit, still in effect, reflected the peculiar experience of becoming an cartoon personality, a metaphorical foreshadowing of the surreal and extreme nature of how celebrity would impact his life. His animated character’s schtick was his magical connection with the animal kingdom, particularly his pet mice, named “Ray” and “Charles”. As Jackson’s eccentric zoo of pets became a phenomenon in itself a decade later, he was apparently unconscious of the fact that his real life was becoming more and more like the way it had been portrayed in the cartoon.
Jupiter-Neptune conjunction recurrence transit in Sagittarius
————————————————–
Just a week after the cartoon began airing, the Jackson 5 now had their own ABC television special called Goin’ Back To Indiana, part of which documented the group’s homecoming appearance in their hometown of Gary the previous Memorial Day weekend, May 29, 1971. The show included guest appearances from Diana Ross, Bill Cosby and Bill Russell, among others, and signaled a high point in the group’s career.
Jupiter and Neptune together signify transcending boundaries: social, physical or metaphysical, and reflect experiences that appear to transcend reality itself. The symbolism of the Jackson 5 returning to their hometown as conquering heroes of show business was obvious, especially considering the family was now transplanted to a life of luxury in California.
Jupiter-Neptune conjunction recurrence transit in Sagittarius

————————————————–
With the Jackson 5 now at the top of their popularity, Michael’s first foray into a solo career was kicked off with a single, Got To Be There, released on October 7, 1971. It went to #4 on the pop charts, a respectable solo debut for the now-thirteen year-old singer, who was still passing for an eleven-year-old. Although the group continued to release albums and tour after leaving Motown records and refining their name to the Jacksons in 1975 (with little brother Randy stepping in for new Motown solo artist Jermaine), for the next decade the hard-working Jackson juggled group projects with solo releases.
Got To Be There, Michael Jackson's first solo single, 1971
Jupiter-Neptune recurrence transit in Sagittarius
Michael’s solo career became more of a focus as he became an adult and outgrew the family/group format. But its initiation at the time of the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction recurrence transit in Sagittarius served to foreshadow the incredible heights it would reach by the time of the following conjunction twelve years later, at the end of 1983 and beginning of 1984.
—————————————————

1983: Thriller, Jupiter-Neptune conjunct in Sagittarius

Jacko Thriller Video 1983
Michael’s first adult solo album was the innovative dance classic, Off The Wall, co-produced with Quincy Jones and released on August 10, 1979. Despite being a huge success, it only won one Grammy award and didn’t snag Record of the Year. Jackson vowed it wouldn’t happen again.
He teamed up with Jones again for his next album, the mega-smash Thriller, released on November 30, 1982, an album that would transcend all kinds of barriers in the music world. From its pioneering role in launching the first black recording artist to get airplay on MTV, to the extent it developed the look and style of how the still-new medium of music video, the album made Michael the most popular and famous entertainer in the world.
Having already set the bar high with the album’s first two videos, Billie Jean and Beat It, the third one had to somehow take things further. Director John Landis, director of the 1981 horror comedy American Werewolf in London, was brought in to direct a mini-feature, a video that would take the format further than merely serving as a visual backdrop for a three-minute pop song.
Jupiter conjunct Neptune recurrence transit in Sagittarius
Running almost fourteen minutes, the Thriller video employed horror flick cliches (it was filmed during Halloween season 1983), Michael was transformed into a supernatural ghoul disguised as a seemingly hapless high school boyfriend, who torments his date (played by Ola Ray) by using his uncanny ability to get a pack of corpse zombies to execute spectacularly synchronized dance routines.
The video premiered on MTV on December 2, 1983, as the next Jupiter-Neptune conjunction was applying in the late degrees of Sagittarius, beginning the second recurrence transit period of his life.
The fact that the video had its debut just over a year after the album was first released was a reflection of the album’s enduring popularity and still-mounting sales figures. A stunning finale to the pop sensation of 1983, let alone the century, it also marked a peak and turning point, a period that gradually came to haunt Michael for being a standard too high for even him to repeat.
Michael Jackson, American Music Awards 1984
Unlike his major rival of the 1980s, Madonna (less than two weeks his senior), Michael was already a fully-formed creative talent by 1983 (the year she released her debut album) and ironically lacked the freedom her relative inexperience in the music world gave her to develop creatively as her fame grew.
—————————————————
Michael kicked off 1984 by filming a Pepsi commercial with his brothers, a prelude to their regrouping for an album and tour later in the year. But there was still some glory due from Thriller, the Landis video and single having closed the previous year at the top of the charts.
Jupiter conjunct Neptune recurrence transit in Sagittarius
The accolades began with his sweep of the 11th annual American Music Awards on Monday night, January 16th, winning a total of eight awards, including a special merit award.
He arrived at the ceremony with his date, actress Brooke Shields, and was dressed for the occasion in a red Sergeant Pepper-style military jacket and black aviator glasses, an appropriate uniform for what, considering the scope of his popularity, equated to the showbiz variant of a coronation.
The Jupiter-Neptune conjunction recurrence transit now at its peak at the end of Sagittarius, the page was about to turn just as both planets headed into the following sign, Capricorn, signifying a sea change in the times and zeitgeist, a reminder that even the strongest are subject to the winds of change.
—————————————————

1984: The Pepsi Generation, Jupiter-Neptune conjunct in Capricorn

Michael Jackson burned during Pepsi ad shoot, 1984Real terror struck during the filming of a second Jacksons Pepsi commercial at Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium on January 27, 1984, when a spark from some lighting effects lit Michael’s hair on fire. Close friend Miko Brando, son of the actor Marlon Brando (also a close friend), was at hand to quickly extinguish the flames, possibly saving the singer’s life.
Somewhat badly burned, television news was on alert as Jackson was hospitalized overnight, footage of him being rushed from the ambulance on a stretcher – head bandaged, faced covered, hand glitter-gloved – played at regular intervals, an image that became as much a part of his legend as any of his staged performances.
Jupiter-Neptune conjunction recurrence transit in Capricorn
The Jupiter-Neptune conjunction had now moved into Capricorn, and the icon’s helpless, veiled figure posed an ominous suggestion as to where his life and career were headed. The accident, an explosion caused for the sake of flashy entertainment that got out of hand, was a metaphor for what Michael’s life was now to become.
—————————————————
Michael Jackson and Friends, Grammys 1984Just one month after the accident, Michael had recovered well enough to follow up his memorable experience at the AMAs with an equally big win at that year’s Grammy Awards, taking away a total of eight trophies for the Thriller, including the coveted Record of the Year that had eluded Off The Wall.
He showed up with Brooke Shields again, but this time he also had child actor Emmanuel Lewis, star of the sitcom Webster, along as well. Despite being almost thirteen at the time, Lewis had the appearance of a much younger kid, due to his small size.
jackson_wins_8_grammys_1984
Another instance of foreshadowing during the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction recurrence, Lewis’ presence at the Grammy awards was the first hint the public had of what would be revealed later, concerning his special relationship with young boys.
While the facts behind this relationship remain one of pop culture’s most hotly debated topics, that the relationship existed in some form is not. Michael’s own childhood had been spent working hard at performing, and as he attained the status he now enjoyed, reaching out to connect with very young males appeared to help him share in an experience that he had been denied.
At the Grammy awards, he was again the big winner of the night, but the event now tends to be remembered as much for the company he kept as it is for his achievment.
jackson_quincy_jones_1933
That being said, the achievement was nothing to sneeze at. Michael and production partner Quincy Jones won a total of eight Grammy statues for their work on Thriller, a record total that is now shared with Carlos Santana (2000) and Norah Jones (2003), but still has yet to be surpassed.
As it turns out, Quincy Jones was also born with a triple conjunction in his natal horoscope involving a Lunar Node (in his case, South), Neptune and Jupiter, all in Virgo (Michael’s Sun Sign). As both men were therefore experiencing a Jupiter-Neptune conjunction recurrence transit, the big Grammy win was the cherry that capped the peak of both men’s careers, an acknowledgment and celebration of pop music’s most successful production team.
—————————————————

1996-1997: Family Man, Jupiter-Neptune conjunct in Capricorn-Aquarius

Michael Jackson and Debbie Rowe, People, 1996Michael’s life took a dark turn in 1993, when he was accused of molesting a young boy who had stayed at his Neverland estate, a sprawling 2,800 acre fantasy land built on land he bought in 1987.
The ensuing scandal was taxing on Michael, even though the accuser’s family were ultimately paid off and charges dropped in January 1994. The negative publicity sparked a breakdown in November 1993 (more on that in the next chapter), during which he canceled dates on his world tour and checked into rehab to treat his painkiller addiction.
A secret marriage to Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of Elvis, followed on May 26, 1994, although it wasn’t confirmed publicly until August 1st. The ill-fated union was over by the end of 1995, which which time Michael collapsed during a rehearsal in December (again, more on that below).
Jupiter Conjunct Neptune Recurrence Transit in Capricorn-Aquarius
As if matters hadn’t taken a strange enough turn already, the divorce from Presley, finalized on August 24, 1996, was promptly followed by a wedding to an already-pregnant Debbie Rowe, receptionist to Michael’s dermatologist, on November 14th.
Their child, a boy named Prince Michael Jackson Jr., was born on February 13, 1997, the first of two children he would have with Rowe before their divorce on October 8, 1999. With the end of the marriage, Michael retained custody of the children, which Rowe signed away in exchange for a settlement.
Now a father in his 40s, Michael’s Peter Pan-like lifestyle and close relationship to other people’s children, especially boys, became even more suspect and subject to criticism than before.
The wedding to Rowe and birth of son Prince occurred during Michael’s third Jupiter-Neptune conjunction recurrence transit period, now moving through the late degrees of Capricorn, at another major turning point in his life, when once again his role in the world was radically redefined.
Jupiter-Neptune conjunction synastryMichael’s Jupiter-Neptune conjunction recurrence transit cycles paralleled times in his life when he was truly beginning a new chapter : 1971 – the year his solo career began, 1983-84 – at the peak of his Thriller success, 1996-97 – his marriage to Debbie Rowe and the birth of son Prince.
On March 3, 2009, as Jupiter approached conjunction to Neptune in Aquarius, Michael announced a fifty-concert show that was to held in London beginning in July, but it was not to be. The planets were conjunct and had just gone retrograde when he passed, marking the turning of one last chapter in the Michael Jackson story.
—————————————————

The Death Chart, part two: Saturn transits

Jacko Ambulance 2009One other key transit to Michael’s horoscope at the time of his death was Saturn in Virgo opposite the natal Moon in Pisces, an ominous signal to his peril at the time.
Saturn signifies the passing of time and the grim reaper, the idea that the clock is always ticking and we are all perpetually running out of time. It draws the line between tragedy and comedy in life, and is associated with “adult” concepts like maturity and responsibility. For a man-child like Michael Jackson, Saturn could also be likened to the way children view “grown-ups.”
Michael Jackson Saturn opposite Moon 2009
In his natal chart, Saturn in Sagittarius (quite possibly placed on his Descendant) is square the Moon in Pisces, representing his perspective of always being the child in the room, the little brother to other members of the Jackson 5.
But it also represented his driven work ethic, the hard hours he was willing to put in to reach perfection in all aspects of his work. Michael’s natal Saturn-Moon square implies that his workaholism was fueled by a strong need to please others, and indicates that he was capable of pushing himself harder than was good for him.
Jacko Cracks 1993
In the past, just as in 2009, strong Saturn transits to Michael’s natal chart were in effect at times when physical collapse forced performances to be canceled. The only difference is these previous instances were not fatal.
As mentioned in the previous chapter, amidst the crisis caused by the child molestation charges leveled against him in 1993, Michael’s addiction to prescription medicine led to his canceling tour dates in order to check into rehab on November 12. On this occasion, news that Michael had been abusing prescription medicine seemed like small potatoes, compared to what else was going on.
At that time, transiting Saturn in Aquarius was opposite his natal Mercury (ruling planet of both Virgo, his Sun sign, and Gemini, ostensibly his rising sign), reflecting the anxiety he felt over the damage to his image and reputation.
Michael Jackson Saturn opposite Mercury
This Saturn transit reflected the public revelations about Michael’s private life, long kept safe behind closed doors, beginning what would now be a long, gradual fall from grace for the singer. Although his die-hard fans remained loyal, he would never again enjoy the kind of broad acceptance he had until then.
Transiting Saturn conjunct Moon in Pisces
Two years later, on December 6, 1995, as his marriage to Lisa Marie Presley was coming to an end, Michael collapsed during a rehearsal at New York City’s Beacon Theater for a live HBO special that was due to be taped in four days. He was diagnosed with low blood pressure and told to take time off.
Although it was alleged that he might have faked the illness to get out of doing the show, the incident brought to mind the drug troubles of 1993, not to mention how he eventually died in 2009.
At the time of the collapse, transiting Saturn was conjunct his natal Moon in Pisces, signifying the end of his marriage to Lisa Marie and the turmoil in his career at the time.
As with the time of his passing, when it was opposite his Moon, Saturn transits to the most vulnerable points in Michael’s chart were coincidental with some of the lower points in a life of a human being that was otherwise blessed, gifted and willing to share what he had with the world.Source here

Η διέλευση της ΣΕΛΗΝΗΣ από τον ΕΒΔΟΜΟ οίκο


Όταν η Σελήνη διελαύνει από τον έβδομο οίκο, η προσοχή σου στρέφεται προς τις πιο στενές σου σχέσεις κι αντιδράς με περισσότερο συναισθηματικό τρόπο.
Αυτή η διέλευση μπορεί να επηρεάσει το γάμο σου, μια στενή συναισθηματική σχέ­ση, τις κοινωνικές ή επαγγελματικές σου σχέσεις ή ακόμα και τις σχέσεις με τους αντιπάλους σου.
Αν, κατά το χρόνο της διέλευσης, βρίσκεσαι σε αρνητική συναισθηματική κατά­σταση, θα έχεις την τάση να γίνεις ζηλότυπος και κτητικός. Ακόμα, υπάρχει η περί­πτωση να ενεργείς ασυνείδητα ή με κάποιον παρορμητισμό προς τα αγαπημένα σου πρόσωπα.
Θα σου είναι πολύ δύσκολο να κρατήσεις μια στάση ανεξάρτητη και αντικειμενι­κή, στο συναισθηματικό τομέα, όπου οι αντιθέσεις σου με τους άλλους θα είναι συ­χνές. Θα πρέπει να δρας με  ενσυνείδητη σκέψη, ώστε να μην αφήνεις περιθώρια στους άλλους για έλεγχο.
Κατά το χρόνο της διέλευσης θα αντιμετωπίσεις ορισμένες προστριβές. Είναι γε­γονός ότι οι προστριβές σου με τις γυναίκες και τα παιδιά θα έχουν μεγαλύτερη ένταση. Δεν παίζει σπουδαίο ρόλο ποιόν θα αντιμετωπίσεις. Ο σκοπός είναι αυτή τη διέλευση να τη δεις σα μια ευκαιρία για να καταλάβεις πώς αντιδράς σε ορισμένες περιπτώσεις. ­
Στις διάφορες προστριβές που θα έχεις, είναι βασικό να ξέρεις ότι η ευθύνη βαρύ­νει εξ ολοκλήρου εσένα, γιατί πρέπει να μάθεις να σέβεσαι και τις απαιτήσεις των άλλων.

Frequencies of Various Aspects in the Horoscopes of Murderers and Serial Killers vs. Those of Randomly Generated Control Groups. Part One
Acknowledgements:

First and foremost, I would like to thank Lois Rodden. Without her tireless efforts in collecting thousands of timed birth charts, this research would not have been possible. ]
Thanks are also due to Mark Mc Donahue who put it all on the Astrodatabank CD, and Mark Pottinger who wrote the CCRS research program. Yes, it's a DOS program from a decade ago, but it still does almost everything (except Windows).
Thanks also to the New York City chapter of the National Council for Geocosmic Research (NCGR) for a $200 research grant. Last, but definitely not least, I would like to thank Diane Cramer, who ran most of the controls.

Background:

A horoscope is like a two-dimensional "snapshot" of planetary positions at a given moment. It should be noted that these charts are 100% objective since they are calculated with Astronomical data based on good old reliable Newtonian mechanics. It is the claim made by astrologers that horoscopes are related to actions taken by people here on Earth that skeptics have questioned, not the objective fact of planetary location.
The way to settle the skepticism about alleged connections between horoscopes and human actions is clear. Find a group of people who have performed some specific action, obtain their birth information (birth date, birth time, and birth location), and see if any objective horoscope features occur in this group by more than random chance in comparison to a control group. There are several problems here:

Most astrologers either don't know how to do research or have no interest in it.
Those who are interested usually have neither the time nor money. And there are few, very few, research grants available for astrological research, and those that are available are small.
Most scientists simply dismiss astrology or have no interest in doing a study.
The few scientists who do research studies know nothing about astrology. As a result, they test assertions that no astrologer ever made and thereby commit the "strawman fallacy."

Still, this research must be done. Anecdotal evidence is insufficient as proof and the responsibility of demonstrating that astrology is valid belongs to astrologers. In other words, the people who listen to what you say don't have to prove that it is true. That's your job.
Caveat:
I am not claiming that the following paper is "proof" of astrology. It clearly is not. It is, however, a logical first step in the testing process. Hypothesis hunting (explained below) is a legitimate procedure for finding factors which may be tested further on new batches of data.

Test Proposal:

The test proposed here is as follows: we will examine the timed horoscopes of people who have performed a specific act, in this case murder, and see if angular separation between certain points on the horoscope wheel occur by more than random chance. But there are several questions that have to be answered first.

Who is a murderer?

Do we include soldiers and police officers who kill in the line of duty? How about someone who kills out of negligence, such as a drunk driver? How about an otherwise peaceful person who kills in self-defense? The problem here is one of motivation. Killing done deliberately (murder in the 1st or 2nd degree, or manslaughter, where there is an intent to injure) is different from that done accidentally (negligence) or where there is no other choice (self-defense or in time of war). This study will be limited to those who deliberately kill or who kill while intending to otherwise cause harm.

But even here, there are differences. Can someone who gets angry one day and kills their spouse be classified with a serial killer or with the "quiet person" who suddenly goes berserk and kills many people at once? For this reason, the murderers are separated into three groups:
  1. Single murderers. Those who killed only one person.
  2. Serial killers. Those who killed several people one after another.
  3. Mass murderers. Those who killed several people at one time.

There are still problems here. Suppose someone comes home one day and finds their spouse in bed with someone else. If they take a gun and kill either the spouse or the lover, they are a single murderer. But what if they kill both? Do we classify them as a multiple murderer? Is their motivation that different from the person who kills just one?
And then there are "spree killers" like Andrew Cunanin. They kill people one after the other, but not all at once. Unlike serial killers, they don't try to cover up. And they kill during a relatively short span of time. They fall in between mass murderers and serial killers.

Even among serial killers there are differences. Some, like Ted Bundy and John Gacy, kill during sexual encounters. Others, like David Berkowitz, the "son of Sam" killer, simply kill. Richard Ramirez, the "night stalker", claimed to kill for Satan. Kenneth Kimes and Dorthea Montalvo killed for money. Jeffery Dahmer cooked and ate his victims. Still, the main motivation for all of them would seem to be the act of murder itself, so, initially at least, killers as diverse as these could be grouped together.

Setting Up the Groups:

In this study, murderers were divided into three groups: single murderers (M), serial killers (S), and mass murderers (MM). Each group was then divided into sub-groups of twenty each. There were less than 20 mass murderers, so they were put aside until data on more cases could be obtained.

Setting Up the Control Groups:

The control groups were computer generated with the "Jigsaw" research program. One group of control horoscopes was generated for each batch of murder horoscopes. Each control chart was set up for the same year and same location as the corresponding chart of a murderer. Controls were labeled with the letter "C." For instance, the control group for the first group of single murderers (M1) was labeled CM1; the control group for the first group of serial killers (S1) was labeled CS1; etc.

Why Use Computer generated Horoscopes?

Wouldn't it be better to use horoscopes of actual people taken from the general population? First of all, it would be extremely difficult to make a control group of people born the same year and in the same place as each murderer. More importantly, what would be the difference statistically between a group of computer generated horoscopes and those taken randomly from the general population? None whatsoever. A computer generated control group should yield the same statistical result as a random group taken from the general population.

Specifics of the Test Itself:

The objective feature of the horoscopes that will be analyzed is the angular separation between planets and the angular separation between planets and certain points in the charts that astrologers claim to be significant. In addition, the particular degrees of the zodiac will be examined to see if any appear by more than random chance.

Back in 1998, I had lunch with Michael Shermer, the editor of Skeptic magazine. He said he had never heard of angular separation being used in astrology before and asked when astrologers started doing it. "Over 2,000 years ago" I replied. "The technique goes back at least to Claudius Ptolemy." It would be helpful if skeptics learned something about astrology and astrological techniques before reaching conclusions about its validity. But, as I mentioned above, it is the responsibility of astrologers to provide the evidence.

The astrological term for angular separation is "aspects." There are several aspects referred to as "Major." These are angles of 0, 60, 90, 120, and 180 degrees. The 60 and 120 degree (called the sextile and trine respectively) aspects are said to have a "soft" effect and are alleged to be beneficial. The angles of 0, 90, and 180 degrees are called "hard" aspects and are claimed to be associated with problems and dysfunctions in the life. Since we are examining the horoscopes of murderers, a dysfunctional act to say the least, the obvious place to start would be with the hard aspects.

Aspects don't have to be exact. Astrologers allow an "orb of influence" of a few degrees on either side. How much? Regrettably, there has been no statistical research in this area. Orb size can vary with circumstances, and even with the astrologer. There are those who allow orbs of up to eight degrees. To be safe, the orbs used in this study have been set on the smaller side of the range. The orb size for the conjunction (the 0 degree aspect) and the opposition (the 180 degree aspect) were set for + or - 5 degrees. The orb for the square (the 90 degree aspect) was set at + or - 4 degrees.

Now what is the chance of any two planets making a "hard" aspect if we use the above orbs? Well, picture a stationary point on a circle. If there is a second point moving around the circle at a uniform rate, what are the chances of that second point making a hard aspect with the first?

That second point will make a hard aspect with the first if it lands in any of the zones around the aspect points. In other words, if it lands within 5 degrees of the first point, it will make a conjunction. If it lands within five degrees of the opposite point, it will make an opposition. And if it lands within four degrees of either square point (there are two possible ways to have a 90 degree aspect; to the left or to the right of the first point) it will make a square. Adding up all of these zones (5+5) + (5+5) + (4+ 4) + (4 + 4) = 36
we get that there are 36 possible degrees on that circle where the second point can land and make a hard aspect with the first. Since there are 360 degrees in a circle, the odds of the second point making an hard aspect with the first point is 36/360 or 0.1 which is 10%.

But planetary motion is not uniform. Won't that throw the calculations off? Not if we take birth dates over a long enough time span. The fluctuations even out in the long haul. Even for a planet like Neptune, which takes over 160 years to make one orbit? In that case, Neptune is moving so slowly that it can be considered stationary compared to the faster moving planets. But how about aspects that the outer planets make to each other? They stay in force for so long that they appear in the horoscopes of entire generations. Neptune and Pluto, for example, made an aspect of approximately 60 degrees for decades after 1943. For this reason, aspects outer planets make with each other will not be covered in this study.

Since everyone has a 10% chance of having any one aspect, it should be obvious that no one aspect could be the only factor in cases of murder. However, if there is an astrological effect, there should be some aspects that would increase the tendency towards murderous behavior. That tendency should be detectable by statistical techniques. Those who have committed murder should have certain aspects occurring in their natal horoscopes by more than would be expected by random chance.

Could there be a difference between individual angles? In other words, even though the angles of 0, 90, and 180 degrees are alleged to have similar effects, could one of them predominate in some cases? That is something that would also have to be checked. The odds of having either a conjunction or opposition occur by random chance would be 1/36. For the 90 degree angle (the square) the odds would be 16/360 (remember that there are always two possible 90 degree angles, clockwise and counterclockwise) or 2/45.

How about other factors? Could certain degrees of the zodiac, for instance, play a role? The odds of any planet or other point in a horoscope appearing in one particular degree of the zodiac are 1/360. Using an orb of + or - one degree, this becomes 1/180. It must be remembered that every planet or point must appear somewhere in the chart. What we have to look for are repeats, one planet or point appearing in a particular degree by more than the theoretical odds of 1/180. Once again, it is possible for the three outer planets to stay in a particular degree for months. For this reason, caution must be exercised when examining outer planet degree placement.

According to Astrology, What Aspects Would We Expect to Find?

Aspects to Mars, of course. Mars is said to be the planet of action and aggression. Negatively, that would be an indicator of violence. Pluto intensifies whatever it touches and it is supposed to be the ruler of death. Early upbringing could be a factor, and, in the horoscope, that would be influenced by the placement of the Moon. But has there been any previous work done on this topic?


Previous Studies of Murder in the Astrological Literature:

The first source here is "Astropsychiatry" by Harry Darling, M.D., and Ruth Hale Oliver, CSA Press, 1973. They claimed to have found the following aspects in the horoscopes of murderers:
"I believe that the midpoint of Mars with Saturn, Uranus or Neptune, when occupied by a natal planet, gives a tendency to violence, that is, to commit violence or to be its recipient. The midpoint of Mars/Saturn coarsens and makes cruel, the midpoint of Mars/Uranus excites and makes erratic and aggressive, and that of Mars/Neptune creates hysteria, sensationalism and sometimes fanaticism, as well as aggression." (Pg.145).

Also mentioned were the midpoints of Venus with either Saturn or Uranus.

Less than 10 cases of the horoscopes of murderers were listed. No mention was made of control groups or of aspects that were tested and gave negative results.

The second source is "Destined for Murder: Profiles of Six Serial Killers" by Sandra Harrison Young and Edna Rowland, Llewellyn Publications, 1995. While the cases were discussed in detail, the number examined was nowhere near statistically significant, and, once again, there were no control groups. It should be stated that until recently, obtaining accurate birth data for a statistically significant number of cases was extremely difficult and time consuming. For astrologers, it was either do anecdotal research or none at all.

At the end of the book, possible astrological factors in the horoscopes of murderers were mentioned.

"Planetary aspects and placements, and the rulers of the following houses, should also be examined carefully: the 8th house (which rules death and sexual preferences); the 4th house (which rules our family heritage and endings, including the end of life); and the 12th house. (The 12th house rules imprisonment or incarceration in any institution where we may be deprived of our freedom. This is sometimes referred to as 'the house of self-undoing.')" (Destined For Murder: Pg.179).

"In the examination of the charts of criminals or mass murderers such as those described in this book, we can't overlook the importance of midpoints. Although all midpoints are vitally important, the following can be classified as key in cases of murder or crime: the Mars/Saturn midpoint (death); Mars/Pluto (murder); Saturn/Pluto (cruelty or violent assault); and the Mars/Uranus midpoint (accident proneness). The Sun/Pluto or Mars midpoints are equally important in indicating a potential for violence, and the Moon/Saturn midpoint should be also noted, since it often indicates an unnatural dependency on one of the parents beginning in early childhood. Occupied midpoints should be given special attention, as well as those aspecting chart angles or cusps of angular houses." (Pg.180).

Hypothesis Hunting:

No previous study cited "negative" outcomes, horoscope features that gave a result no greater than random chance or, alternately, that showed no difference from a control group. Nor did any previous study claim to be complete. Could there be other aspects out there that give positive results? The only way to do a thorough job is to do some "hypothesis hunting", checking everything in the initial sample to see what is there.
Now it is common sense that this procedure has to give some result, and it is possible for one sample to have one particular aspect give a very high result by random chance alone. The key, however, is reproducibility. As long as enough cases are held in reserve to so that the initial results can be retested and verified (or falsified), hypothesis hunting is a valid procedure.

Now how is the test itself to be run?

Test Parameters:

As mentioned above, the cases were divided into groups of 20. An individual group of this size is too small to run meaningful statistical tests. For this reason, the results from several groups were totaled. The tests were run initially on the totals from four groups. A minimum standard was set arbitrarily. An aspect had to appear at least 50% above random chance to be considered significant.

For example, the random chance result is 10%. For 80 cases, that means 8 "hits." To be considered significant, a particular aspect would have to appear at least 12 times out of 80 cases.

Test Results, Phase One:

Aspects were run for the following groups: M1, M2, M3, and S1. This initial phase involved some "hypothesis hunting" as well as examination of combinations that would be "expected" to give positive results. In Phase Two, the same tests were to be run on group S2 and the results totaled. In Phase Three, the same tests would be run on group S3 and the totals tabulated.
The following results were obtained for Phase One :
 

There were no stress aspects between the Sun and any planet. There were two "hits" to midpoints. The Moon had eight "hits." Astrologers allege that the Sun has to do with "ego", outward personality, and relations with the father and male authority figures, while the Moon indicates one's feelings, habits, "instincts", early nurturing, and relations with the mother.

A stress aspect between the Moon and Mars is not surprising. Mars is allegedly aggression and violence and a stress aspect to the Moon would show anger directed towards women, starting with the mother. Mass murderer Richard Speck, for example, who killed eight student nurses, had the Moon square Mars. (His chart is not included here as he was neither a single murderer nor a serial killer). Once again, let me emphasize that these aspects will be possessed by 10% of the general population. What we are looking for are those aspects which occur at least 50% above the number predicted by random chance. If there is to be an "astrological effect" at all, it will be statistical and not a one-to-one correspondence. And there would be several aspects involved, not just one.

Stress aspects from the Moon to Venus are more of a surprise. After all, in astrology Venus allegedly affects pleasure and comfort. However, our first experiences of these come from our relationship with our mothers. Any problems at that early stage could indicate trouble later in life.

In astrology, Mercury is said to rule conscious thought and the ability to communicate. There were no aspects of Mercury that gave positive results.

Venus gave two more hits (besides its aspect to the Moon, already covered). One was to Mars (violence). Stress aspects between Venus and Mars allegedly are associated with difficulties in expressing affection and passion. The other is a stress aspect between Venus and the planet that rules the first house (it made no difference which planet happened to rule the first house). Again, this could indicate difficulty in both giving and receiving pleasure and affection.

Since early nurturing is known to have a strong effect on subsequent behavior, the next question to ask is: are there other things in the horoscope that are supposed to affect it? In astrology, the Moon is not the only alleged indicator of nurturing. The asteroid Ceres is also claimed to have an effect. Ceres aspects would be the next place to look. Ceres stress aspects gave positive results with Jupiter and the Mars/Saturn midpoint. The connection with that midpoint is not surprising, since Mars/Saturn has a reputation for brutality. Jupiter, however, expands things. Too much nurturing? Perhaps too much of the wrong kind of nurturing, since we are looking at stressful aspects here. Or could it indicate an excessive need for nurturing? Further study is certainly indicated here.

The Venus/Ceres midpoint also gave results. Venus/Ceres would allegedly show pleasurable nurturing, or one's ability to experience pleasure from nurturing. That midpoint gave strong positive results when configured with Mars (violence), Jupiter (excess) and Saturn (deprivation).

Mars/Jupiter stress aspects are supposed to give a volatile temper. This also gave results. No surprise here. The Moon/Mars connection was already mentioned. Mars configured with the Moon's Nodes showed positive results as well. The nodes are the points where an orbit crosses the plane of the Earth's orbit.

The asteroid Juno gave a result for the Pluto/Node midpoint. Demetra George in her book "Asteroid Goddesses, claims that Juno "�represents our capacity for meaningful relationship�" and that its horoscope placement "�describes the ways in which we face the issues of compatibility, receptivity to others, mutual sharing, trust, jealousy, possessiveness, and power struggles"(pg.168). Pluto, however, is the planet of both extremes and death. It too has a connection with power struggles. And the Moon's Node does have a connection with emotion. Murder is, after all, about power.

Jupiter gave no results with Saturn or Chiron, or the outer planets. However, there were positives for the following midpoints: Venus/Ceres (mentioned earlier), Venus/Uranus, Venus/Neptune, Mars/Uranus, Saturn/Pluto, and Pluto/Node.

Venus/Uranus and Mars/Uranus are two of the midpoints mentioned by Darling and Oliver in "Astropsychiatry." Venus/Uranus has to do with sudden surges of amorous feeling as well as affection expressed in an unusual or bizarre fashion. It is also associated with rapid changes in the level of blood sugar. The negative effect of Mars/Uranus is claimed to be associated with sudden outbursts of temper. The alleged effect of Jupiter is to "expand" whatever it contacts. These combinations in the horoscopes of murderers are no surprise.

Neither are the stressful aspects of Jupiter to Saturn/Pluto or Pluto/Node. Pluto is known (anecdotally) to act like sort of a super Mars, but is more internal and brooding. This would mean that, potentially at least, Saturn/Pluto could have similarities to Saturn/Mars, a point of brutality. The (alleged) effect of Jupiter to expand things could bring out the negative side of Saturn/Pluto. As for Pluto/Node, we have already seen it give a positive result with Mars (action) so it is not unexpected for the (alleged) effect of Jupiter to expand things to have similar results.

There seems to be a lot of activity for Saturn with various midpoints of Venus. In several cases, the results were over the 50% minimum. For instance, Saturn gave a strong positive with the Venus/Chiron midpoint. Venus/Chiron is one of the places where we can have trouble experiencing pleasure. This would be a problem that would tend to linger. Saturn also shows positive results when in aspect to Venus/Ceres (pleasure received from nurturing). According to astrology, Saturn restricts and inhibits things. This does not necessarily mean that there was no pleasure from early nurturing. It could also indicate a lessened ability to accept nurturing. In any event, if the child did not perceive sufficient nurturing, there could easily be repercussions later in life.

Astrology alleges that the effect of Uranus is to excite, to make restless, to cause us to desire change, and increase our attraction to anything unusual or bizarre. Uranus gave positive results with the Moon/Mars midpoint (Moon=emotions, Mars=anger), and also with the Venus/Neptune midpoint (which is associated with sexual fantasies). Both gave strong results in three out of four groups. Uranus gave another strong result in stress aspect to the Moon's Node.

The Special Case of Oppositions:

The sixty horoscopes of the serial killers were inspected visually. It was noticed that there seemed to be an above average number of certain planets forming opposition aspects to the cusp (beginning) 8th house (death) and/or the 12th house (psychological problems). The odds of an opposition occurring by random chance alone are, of course, less than the combined odds for all of the so-called stressful aspects. Since we are allowing an orb of influence of plus or minus 5 degrees, a planet can land in any one of 10 degrees of the zodiac circle and form the opposition. 10 degrees divided by the 360 degrees of the full circle yields 1/36, or 2.8%.

A striking example was the planet Saturn opposite the 12th house cusp. This happened in 6 out of the 60 horoscopes of the serial killers, or 10%. This is 3.6 times what would be predicted by random chance. Granted that the sample size is small, however this does indicate a subject for further research.Πηγη εδω

Ασκήσεις αναπνοής για τα Ζώδια-Ιχθεις

Οι Ιχθείς περισσότερο από κάθε άλλο άτομο άλλου ζωδίου (εκτός ίσως από τον Καρκίνο) μπορούν να ωφεληθούν από την εφαρμογή απλών αναπνευστικών ασκήσεων της Γιόγκα. Η κοσμική ενέργεια που απορροφάται από τον οργανισμό με την Γιόγκα βοηθάει στην καταπολέμηση της έμφυτης παθητικότητας και της οργανικής αδυναμίας που εμφανίζονται στο γενέθλιο χάρτη. Αν θέλετε εν τούτοις να επιτύχετε το μεγαλύτερο όφελος από την άσκηση πρέπει να υπερνικήσετε αυτό που κάνει τη Γιόγκα δύσκολη ή μη αποδοτική για τους περισσότερους Δυτικούς, δηλ. την ανυπομονησία. Στον αιώνα των ισχυρών φαρμάκων και των στιγμιαίων αποτελεσμάτων, όσοι κάνουν Γιόγκα περιμένουν μέσα σε μια νύχτα να δουν αποτελέσματα και από την εφαρμογή των ασκήσεών της. Η επιστήμη όμως της υγείας αναπτύχθηκε σε ένα περιβάλλον ανατολίτικο όπου οι κινήσεις των ανθρώπινων όντων όπως και των άστρων είναι ρυθμισμένες σύμφωνα με τη μεγάλη κοσμική τάξη παρά με τις ατομικές επιθυμίες. Να έχετε υπ΄όψη σας ότι η τεχνική ελέγχου της αναπνοής που ακολουθεί θα απαιτήσει χρόνο για να αποκαλύψει τα αποτελέσματά της. Πιθανόν να σας δώσει θάρρος το γεγονός ότι η σανσκριτική ονομασία της αυτής άσκησης είναι ujjayi που σημαίνει, Νικητής. Χρόνος : 8 π.μ. έως 10 μ.μ. Τόπος : Καλά αερισμένο δωμάτιο ή ένα ήσυχο μέρος στο ύπαιθρο (στη σκιά). Διάρκεια της άσκησης : Περίπου 6 λεπτά. Τεχνική : Καθισμένοι σε αναπαυτική στάση αλλά με ευθυτενή σπονδυλική στήλη κλείνετε τα μάτια σας και ηρεμείτε τον νου σας και τις αισθήσεις σας προσπαθώντας να νοιώσετε τον αργό, προαιώνιο παλμό της δημιουργίας, που πάλλει γύρω και μέσα σας. Όταν έχετε χαλαρώσει εισπνεύστε βαθιά μια μικρή ποσότητα αέρα (όχι τόση ώστε να γεμίσει τους πνεύμονές σας τελείως) αναπνέοντας και από τα δύο ρουθούνια. Κρατείστε την αναπνοή σας ώσπου να μετρήσετε ως το πέντε, ύστερα, κλείστε το δεξί σας ρουθούνι και εκπνεύστε από το αριστερό ενώ μετράτε ως το δέκα. Επαναλαμβάνετε την κίνηση δώδεκα φορές κατά τις πρώτες εβδομάδες της άσκησης. Αργότερα θα αυξήσετε τον αριθμό των εισπνοών σε 20. Όταν εισπνέετε, η αναπνοή πρέπει να κάνει καθώς περνάει ανάμεσα στη μύτη και στον λαιμό έναν θόρυβο όπως αυτόν που κάνει ο αέρας που ξεφεύγει από μία μικρή τρυπίτσα σ΄ένα τρυπημένο λάστιχο. Αντίθετα με τα περισσότερα γιογκικά γυμνάσματα, αυτή η άσκηση μπορεί να γίνεται και σε περιόδους κόπωσης ή αρρώστιας.

Η διέλευση της ΣΕΛΗΝΗΣ από τον ΕΚΤΟ οίκο


Είναι η περίοδος που θα συγκεντρώσεις όλες σου τις ενέργειες και όλες τις προ­σπάθειες στις άμεσες ανάγκες της καθημερινότητας. ξεχνάς κάθε τι που έχει σχέση με το συναισθηματικό σου κόσμο και στρέφεσαι μόνο προς τα θέματα που σου εξα­σφαλίζουν τα προς το «ζην».
Η αιτία βρίσκεται στην αντίφαση που υπάρχει μεταξύ της ανάγκης που δημιουργεί η Σελήνη για προσωπική και συναισθηματική επαφή και της εξ ολοκλήρου αντίθετης φύσης του έκτου οίκου.
Μπορεί να γίνεις υπέρ-κριτικός ή να ακολουθήσεις την «τακτική της προσποίη­σης». Αποτέλεσμα αυτής της τακτικής σου είναι να κάνεις τους άλλους να νιώθουν ένοχα για τη συμπεριφορά τους. Το σωστό, λοιπόν, είναι να εξωτερικεύεις τα συναι­σθήματά σου, ακόμα κι αν είναι αντίθετα προς την υπάρχουσα κατάσταση.
Ένας άλλος τομέας που επηρεάζεται από αυτή τη διέλευση είναι ο τομέας της υγείας. Όσο διαρκεί η διέλευση, θα νιώθεις μια γενική κατάπτωση και μια επιρρέ­πεια προς τις συνηθισμένες ασθένειες.
Προσωπικά, έχω παρατηρήσει ότι κατά τη διέλευση της Σελήνης από τον έκτο οί­κο (ή τον δωδέκατο) στο γυναικείο κύκλο εκδηλώνεται η έμμηνος ρύση.

Η βάση του Δέκο

Το ερώτημά μου είναι απλό: Ο φερέγγυος, καλός, σοβαρός γιατρός που θα σε χειρουργήσει μπορεί ποτέ να έγινε γιατρός μόνο και μόνο για να σπουδάζει κοντά στο σπίτι του; Να το πω αλλιώς: Ο γεωτεχνολόγος περιβαλλοντολόγος, που απ' αυτόν εξαρτάς τη σωστή μελέτη ενός έργου για να καλυτερέψει η ποιότητα της ζωής σου μπορεί ποτέ να έχει μπει στο πανεπιστήμιο ξέροντας μόνο το ονοματεπώνυμό του, κι αυτό ανορθόγραφο; Και να βγει ξέροντας φυσική, χημεία, γεωλογία, μαθηματικά, αγγλικές μελέτες και ελληνικά, για να τα συντάξει κιόλας όλα αυτά; Το κυριότερο: Ο παιδαγωγός, που κατά τη γνώμη μου είναι υπεύθυνος για το πιο σπουδαίο έργο, τη σμίλεψη παιδικών προσωπικοτήτων, μπορεί να πάρει στα χέρια του το παιδί σου, αν το κατ' εξοχήν κίνητρό του δεν είναι η αγάπη του για τα παιδιά και είναι η αγάπη του για έναν δημοσιοϋπαλληλίστικο διορισμό; Αν παρακολουθήσει κανείς τη σκέψη μου σε όλο το φάσμα των επιστημών που μπαίνουν για να υπηρετήσουν τα βλαστάρια της ελληνικής κοινωνίας κάθε χρόνο, δεν θα του μείνει καμμία απορία γιατί η κατάρτιση και ο επαγγελματισμός -δηλαδή αυτά που λέμε Γνώση- είναι όλο και πιο δυσεύρετα στην καθημερινή μας ζωή. Ηελληνική κοινωνία αρέσκεται πάρα πολύ να ανάγει σε οικογενειακή νίκη την είσοδο του/της έφηβου στις σχολές για παραπέρα σπουδές, χωρίς να πολυενδιαφέρεται για την ουσία του πράγματος: την αξιοσύνη. Μοιάζει έτσι οι παραπάνω από το γυμνάσιο σπουδές να είναι περισσότερο μια κοινωνική -νομίζουν ταξική- αναβάθμιση και καταξίωση των γονιών, παρά η πόρτα για να μπει στην επιστημονική μόρφωση (εκ του παίρνω μορφή) ο/η έφηβος. Εχω γνωρίσει γιατρούς και αρχιτέκτονες -πολύ γνωστούς- που σπούδασαν με μόνη φιλοδοξία να αποκτήσουν φήμη και χρήμα. Φυσικότατο. Μόνο που για να τα αποκτήσουν έσκισαν τα παντελόνια τους στα έδρανα επί χρόνια. Επειδή η φήμη και το χρήμα απαιτούσε να είσαι πολύ καλύτερος από πολλούς καλύτερους, ώστε να προτιμηθείς. Θέλω να πω ότι δεν είναι απαραίτητο να έχει κανείς υψηλά ιδανικά για να σπουδάσει. Αλλά εδώ μια κοινωνία ολόκληρη, που έχει διαφθείρει και έχει διαφθαρεί από το άρρωστο καθηγητικό σύστημα παραγωγής ομοίων, για να μην κουραστούν να διδάσκουν και ν' αξιολογούν κατά κρίση και προσωπική ευθύνη οι μέτριοι έως κακοί δάσκαλοι, αρκείται στα εύκολα και επιφανειακά. ΗΤζούλια δεν τραγουδάει τυχαία «για τα λεφτά τα κάνω όλα». Το τραγούδι είναι ο εθνικός ύμνος ενός πολύ μεγάλου μέρους των Ελλήνων καταναλωτών. Και ο τονισμός δεν είναι στο πρώτο μέρος του ρεφρέν. Είναι στο «όλα». Μέσα σ' αυτό το «όλα» περιλαμβάνεται το μπόλιασμα της νεολαίας με τη διεφθαρμένη και -κυρίως- αναποτελεσματική νοοτροπία «πάρε ένα πτυχίο ό,τι να 'ναι, μήπως μ' αυτό βρεις καμιά θεσούλα πιο εύκολα». Ετσι ακριβώς πληθαίνουν οι θεσούλες των πτυχιούχων στην ανεργία ή οι θεσούλες των πτυχιούχων στις αργομισθίες του Δημοσίου, που τις χρυσοπληρώνουμε όλοι. Και έτσι ακριβώς οι πιο πολλοί από τους πτυχιούχους ίσα που πληρούν τις προϋποθέσεις για τα πτυχία που κρατάνε στα χέρια τους. Μόνο που αυτό το ανακαλύπτεις όταν πέσεις εσύ στα χέρια τους. Πριν από λίγες μέρες σχεδόν θριαμβολογούσαν τα ΜΜΕ που δύο (2) ελληνικά πανεπιστήμια συγκαταλέγονταν μέσα στα πεντακόσια (500!!) καλύτερα του κόσμου! Να με συμπαθάτε, αλλά με τα μέτρα της παιδείας της δικής μου γενιάς αυτό δεν είναι προς θρίαμβο. Είναι ξεφτίλα. Τα παιδιά του λαού έχουν γίνει όργανα εκμετάλλευσης μιας καθηγητικής συντεχνίας, που απαιτεί να δίνει όλο και λιγότερα, παίρνοντας όλο και περισσότερα. Σε παιδεία και παραπαιδεία. Τα παιδιά του λαού έχουν γίνει όργανα οικονομικής εκμετάλλευσης των πολιτικών της παιδείας, που θέλουν να ταΐσουν πόλεις και επιχειρήσεις με τα λεφτά των γονιών, χωρίς να υπάρχει αντικείμενο σπουδής. Τα παιδιά του λαού έχουν γίνει όργανα εκμετάλλευσης της μωροφιλοδοξίας των γονιών, που βλέπουν στο μέλλον των γεννημάτων τους την προσωπική τους μόνο καταξίωση. Υπάρχουν εξαιρέσεις. Αλλά τα παιδιά του λαού και ο λαός ο ίδιος δεν καρπούται τις εξαιρέσεις. Υποφέρει απ' τον κανόνα. Γ. ΠΑΠΑΔΟΠΟΥΛΟΣ-ΤΕΤΡΑΔΗΣ

Ζωδια και διατροφη-ΙΧΘΕΙΣ

Χρειάζονται δίαιτα υψηλή σε πρωτεϊνες για να προμηθεύσει την απαραίτητη ενέργεια για τη σωστή λειτουργία των κυττάρων του οργανισμού των ατόμων αυτού του ζωδίου, χωρίς ταυτόχρονα να ενισχύεται η τάση που έχουν να συγκεντρώνουν το νερό στους ιστούς. Οι τροφές με πρωτεϊνες ακόμη τρέφουν τους μυς του σκελετού που συντείνουν σε μια ευθυτενή κορμοστασιά. Τη στιγμή που η καθημερινή δίαιτα θα κλίνει προς τα λίπη και τα ζαχαρώδη, το παράστημα αρχίζει να δείχνει πρώτο τα συμπτώματα. Αρκετό διάστημα χωρίς πρωτεϊνες φανερώνεται από βαθμιαία πλαδαρότητα των μυών. Οι ώμοι στρογγυλεύουν και πέφτουν και παρουσιάζονται συμπτώματα πλατυποδίας. Το ίδιο βέβαιο είναι ότι το εσωτερικό μυϊκό σύστημα είναι εξίσου ευπαθές. Οι μυς της κοιλιάς χαλαρώνουν, επηρεάζοντας, κατ΄αναλογία το στομάχι και τα έντερα καθώς και τα άλλα εσωτερικά όργανα που υποβαστάζονται από αυτούς. Η χώνευση θα επηρεαστεί και αυτή αφού τα εντερικά τοιχώματα δεν εκτελούν κανονικά τη λειτουργία κυματώδους διαπίδυσης της τροφής. Με τη σχεδίαση ενός σωστού πλάνου διατροφής είναι δυνατή η εξασφάλιση ικανοποιητικής ποσότητας πρωτεϊνης αν στην καθημερινή δίαιτα περιλαμβάνονται τροφές με πολλές πρωτεϊνες όπως λ.χ. άπαχο κρέας, αυγά, ψάρι, γιαούρτι και καρύδια. Η καλή κατάσταση της υγείας εξαρτάται κατά πολύ και από μία ικανοποιητική ποσότητα φωσφορικού σιδήρου – το κύριο βιοχημικό άλας των Ιχθύων – στο αίμα. Η απαραίτητη ποσότητα οξυγόνου που είναι ζωτική ανάγκη για το σώμα μεταφέρεται από τα μόρια αυτού του άλατος που έχουν κάποια χημική συγγένεια με το στοιχείο αυτό. Όταν υπάρχει έλλειψη φωσφορικού σιδήρου, υπάρχει πιθανότητα παθήσεων όπως αναιμία, χαμηλή πίεση, κατάθλιψη, αδενικές ανωμαλίες, υδρωπικία και παλμικοί πονοκέφαλοι. Επίσης λαχάνιασμα στην παραμικρή προσπάθεια και γενικότερα ελαττωμένη αντοχή και αίσθημα γενικής κόπωσης. Ο Δόκτωρ Τζώρτζ Γουάσιγκτων Κάρεϋ, που μελέτησε εκτεταμένα το θέμα της βιοχημείας, συμπεριλαμβανομένης και της σχέσης της προς την αστρολογία, έγραψε ότι «όταν οι φορείς του οξυγόνου είναι ελαττωματικοί, η κυκλοφορία αυξάνει σε τρόπο ώστε να μεταφέρει αρκετή ποσότητα οξυγόνου στα άκρα – σε όλα τα μέρη του σώματος – ακριβώς όπως επτά άνδρες πρέπει να εργαστούν ταχύτερα για να καλύψουν την εργασία δέκα». Ευτυχώς το φωσφορικό σίδερο συναντάται σε μεγάλη ποικιλία στις συνηθισμένες τροφές. Εν τούτοις η Άντα Μούϊρ, αυθεντία στο θέμα αυτό, συμβουλεύει οι τροφές που παίρνονται με σκοπό την κάλυψη κάποιας έλλειψης μάλλον παρά την συντήρηση, καλό είναι να μην μαγειρεύονται μια και το μαγείρεμα ελευθερώνει το σίδερο που συνήθως πετιέται με το νερό που χρησιμοποιείται για το μαγείρεμα. Το φωσφορικό σίδερο μπορεί να παίρνεται ωμό στα μαρούλια, τις φράουλες, τα ραπανάκια, τα αγγούρια, τ΄αμύγδαλα και τα καρύδια και τις σταφίδες. Ορισμένες μαγειρεμένες τροφές είναι πλούσιες στο βιοχημικό άλας των Ιχθύων και αυτές είναι σπανάκι, μοσχαρίσιο συκώτι, μαυρομμάτικα φασόλια και άπαχο μοσχάρι. Γυναίκες και παιδιά – Ψάρια – είναι πιο ευαίσθητα στην έλλειψη σιδήρου απ΄ότι οι άνδρες. Ο λόγος είναι ότι οι γυναίκες χάνουν αρκετή ποσότητα με την έμμηνο ρύση ενώ τα παιδιά χρειάζονται αυξημένη ποσότητα για την ανάπτυξή τους. Τα αρχαία χρόνια οι Έλληνες και οι Ρωμαίοι γιατροί προσπαθούσαν να θεραπεύσουν την έλλειψη σιδήρου με κομμάτια του μετάλλου που άφηναν να μουλιάζουν μέσα στο ξύδι και που έδιναν μετά στους ασθενείς να πιούν. Η μέθοδος αυτή δεν ήταν αποτελεσματική μολαταύτα γιατί το στοιχείο παρέμενε στην ακατέργαστη μορφή του και δεν εισχωρούσε μέσα στο αίμα αλλά αποβαλλόταν από το σώμα από τα έντερα. Όταν παίρνεται σαν θεραπευτικό συμπλήρωμα υπό μορφή χαπιών, το φωσφορικό σίδηρο έχει ήδη κονιοποιηθεί με ζάχαρη γάλακτος στην έκτη δύναμη πριν γίνει δυνατό να απορροφηθεί από την βλεννογόνο μεμβράνη και να εισχωρήσει στο αίμα. Το ζωδιακό ορυκτό των Ιχθύων είναι το οργανικό ιώδιο. Πρόσφατες μελέτες απέδειξαν ότι έλλειψη του σημαντικού αυτού στοιχείου είναι πολύ διαδεδομένη στους αγροτικούς πληθυσμούς αλλά το ποσοστό για τα άτομα του Ζωδίου είναι υψηλότερο από το κανονικό. Σοβαρή έλλειψη οργανικού ιωδίου προξενεί υπερτροφία του θυρεοειδούς και μία συγγενή κατάσταση που ονομάζεται μυξοίδημα και χαρακτηρίζεται από υπερβολική ξηρότητα του δέρματος και διαταραχή του συστήματος ελέγχου της θερμοκρασίας του σώματος. Αίσθηση ψύχους π.χ. όταν οι άλλοι αισθάνονται ζέστη. Οι γυναίκες που βρίσκονται στην κλιμακτήριο και οι έφηβοι είναι οι πιο πιθανοί να υποφέρουν από την έλλειψη ιωδίου απ΄ότι οι άνδρες Ιχθείς. Η καλύτερη πηγή τροφών με οργανικό ιώδιο είναι τα θαλασσινά και τα ψάρια ανοικτής θαλάσσης. Το θαλασσινό αλάτι – που περιέχει ιώδιο – δεν είναι ικανοποιητική πηγή γιατί για να εξασφαλιστεί η απαιτούμενη ποσότητα πρέπει να καταναλωθούν πολύ μεγάλες ποσότητες αλατιού που θα ήταν βλαβερές. Τα βότανα που ταιριάζουν στο Ζώδιο των Ιχθύων είναι : Ισλανδικά βούρλα, βοράγινον το φαρμακευτικόν (κοινώς μποράντσα) και φύκια. Το ομοιοπαθητικό φάρμακο, το Vertrum.
