Asclepius and HygeiaAsclepius the God of medicine, healing, rejuvenation, and physicians. He was the grandson of Jupiter and the father of Hygeia. He was trained by Chiron. His symbol is the rod of Asclepius, a snake-entwined staff, which remains a symbol of medicine today.

Asclepius was the son of Apollo and, according to the earliest accounts, a mortal woman named Coronis. When she displayed infidelity by sleeping with a mortal named Ischys, Apollo came to know this with his prophetic powers and killed Ischys. Coronis was killed by Artemis for being unfaithful to Apollo and was laid out on a funeral pyre to be consumed by fire, but Apollo rescued the child by cutting him from Coronis’s womb.

Jupiter is conjunct Saturn at 0° Aquarius on December 21st, 2020. This is the beginning of a new era. A new 20-year cycle. All the ‘rules’ on how society works will be examined and re-written.

Jupiter expands and Saturn contracts with its rings which limit expansion with its rules and regulations.
Saturn’s all about slow your roll and does the work. Jupiter is the ever-expanding balloon.
Saturn’s job is to keep it in check so it doesn’t destroy itself by bursting beyond its own limits.

Saturn is the traditional ruler of the conjunction. Aquarius is co-ruled by Saturn and Uranus. It’s a new world being birthed from old structures. Funny that Uranus is in Taurus at the time of the new 20-year cycle and is sort of mirroring that air/earth union, or the emergence of air springing forth from the earth.

Information, innovation, and technological advances will be disseminated to the masses.
It brings to mind a weed bursting forth from the concrete.

Jupiter is the ruler of this Sagittarius rising chart and is strong in its own sign of Pisces in the 3rd house.

This chart (shown below) of the Saturn Square Uranus seems to reflect Jupiter’s expansive optimism of reaching foreign lands with this vaccine product born of scientific research (Sagittarius, natural 9th house ruler which rules experts and foreign lands) in relation to its baggage of the Virus (Covid19). Pisces is also ruled by Jupiter as well as Neptune and holds the natural dominion of the 12th house. The 12th house rules things you can’t see like an invisible air-borne virus. It also rules hospitals. It’s the house of the unseen enemy.

In this chart, Jupiter is in the 3rd house of travel (natural opposition to the 9th house of foreign lands) adding to the confusion of the rollout. Saturn, which limits also is in the third house and demands accountability and attention to detail with the distributions.

Uranus located in the 6th house of health and, also illness is in the Sign of Taurus. Uranus is the scientific discovery as well as the distribution to the people because it rules distribution to the masses. Coincidentally Uranus is an air sign. Taurus gives the manifestation into material physical reality.

This date of June 14th, 2021 is the Uranus square Saturn I feel is a marker of the struggle to deliver the Covid19 vaccine. There is a Mercury RX retrograde causing “snaffoos” in travel. This is a difficult delivery due to the necessity of the subzero temperatures needed to keep this vaccine stable and viable. Below you can see the Sabian symbols which help to describe the degree of energy. The Moon represents the people, Hygia is about health. Mars is action (also rules fevers). Mars is ready for battle. On 6/14/21 It’s at the degree where Uranus was when the first case occurred in the U.S. on December 31, 2020, 2 degrees of Leo. Pluto is death and transformation. Another interesting note is that Pluto is in the 2nd house and exemplifies the powerful amount of financial resources put forth by the government to roll out this life-saving vaccine. A side note which I found interesting is that these Saturn Uranus degrees also line up with Joe Biden’s 3rd and 6th house cusps 13° Aquarius and 13°Taurus. The sixth house in his chart also rules the daily job. Taurus manifests. The last time he was in the White House he worked hard to implement  Obama care, the ACA affordable care act.

In March, our leader was on Don Cerow. He presented information based on his book, The 8th Seal: Its Time Is Now!. Due to the coronavirus outbreak, we had our March event on Zoom. I think it went well and we had great attendance. Thank you all!

First he listed some events in the world that resonate with his claim that the time is now, then he launched into his beautiful presentation. The presentation was organized according to the 22 chapters of the Book of Revelation at the end of the New Testament in the Christian Bible. He has interesting ideas about the symbolism used by the author and has made some correlations with the constellations and events in the sky.

The Mythology and Astrology of Superman, By Susan Vega

Superman was created in 1932 by two Jewish schoolmates growing up in Ohio. One was the Canadian artist Joseph Shuster and the other was the American writer Jerome Siegel. They tried for many years to get the idea published. Finally, in 1938 Superman appeared in Detective Comics action comics #1. It went on to other mediums- radio, television, and the movies.

Superman was born on the dying Planet Krypton. He was rocketed to Earth by his Father moments before the Planet’s destruction. He was found by an elderly couple and raised as their own. The Superman Myth parallels other cultural heroes and religious figures such as Moses, Gilgamesh. Samson. and Krishna. He was raised to have restraint, idealism and a sense of fairness and compassion for others.
