A Baffled Fifth House Saturn In Need of Lustre

Dear Moonkisd,

I love this blog. It’s amazing how you explain the complexity of astrological issues with such an easy, humane approach.
Since the last 2 years I stopped making any important decisions in my life. It feels like I’ve lost trust in the inner-guidance somehow. I only do I what I have to, refusing to take any “unnecessary”challenges. I gave up doing artistic projects (I’m a musician) and lost interest (hope) in relationships. As far as I know, I have Saturn, North Node and Lilith in the 5th house. Does it leave any hope for artistic goals and successful relationships? I feel so heavily restricted in this area. I was born on the 1st of Nov. 1979 in Krakow, Poland, at 17.15.

Gratefully, Baffled

Dear Baffled,

Why thank you (blush)! Scorpio, you live to create that magnificent work of art that makes life worth living, and denying yourself that pleasure makes my heart twinge. Oh, and intimacy, can you spell SCORPIO? You will find it, but first you’ve got to rescue yourself from the despondency that’s taken the oomph out of your oomp-ah!

Mercury Rx in Aquarius Asks About Astrology & Destiny

Dear Moonkissd,

I am doing research on a topic of astrology attempting to link it to possible destiny of each human being. The question is: What would you say is the reason people should look to their zodiac signs or other methods of astrology as a guide for their life to eventually shape their destiny?

Thank you, Nikki

Dear Nikki,

First one little semantic about your question: I don’t believe anyone “should” look to astrology unless their heart and mind are opened by it, and they’re guided internally to use it. As with any form of divination, if it’s useful and helpful, astrology can be a wonderful tool for self-awareness, cultivating understanding in relationships, and understanding the cycles of our lives.

Hmm, what of destiny? I can only answer your question from my perspective. In my experience, our destiny is always changing and is continually altered and alterable by the choices we make.

Desperately Seeking Pluto in Sag Reprieve

Dear Jessica,

I’m another Sagittarius who has a run of bad years with this one being one of the worst. I have been trying turn everything around and to sell my house move out of state and start a new career but have had absolutely no luck. My house was in escrow twice and both buyers had to withdraw. Both of my grown….but young adult…children (both Aries) had horrible years health-wise, with my son the victim of an unprovoked attack. My job is very stressful and to work and back involves about a 3 1/2 hour commute. Do you see any improvement and movement forward in 2008?

DOB: 12/16/54 Time: approx 6:35 p.m. Place: Dallas, TX
My son’s info is: 4/19/81 at 7:23 a.m. My daughter’s info is: 4/1/84 at 12:55 a.m.

Any light you can shed is much appreciated!

The C(heart) of Relationship

Dear Moonkissd,

I love reading your blog! I have a question about first meeting charts, what they can tell about a relationship. I recently met a man about 6 months ago, and from the moment I met him I felt that we had an intense connection. We met on May 30th at 9:30 p.m at the Empire State Building, Manhattan NY. I was born in New York, New York on November 2, 1964 at 3:18 a.m and he was born in Atlanta, GA October 9, 1970 at 6:00 a.m.

Grace Under T-Square Pressure

Hello Jessica,

I have a question about Pluto/Jupiter to MC transit. In fact, it’s a T-square with Mars:

Asc-24 Scorpio
MC-27 Virgo
Mars -28 Gemini, ruler of 5th house (I don’t have a boyfriend) and almost exactly conjuncts 8th house cusp-26 Gemini.

I am a recent college graduate and straggling with a job search. It seems like a dry spell, whatever I do – nothing brings any results. It would be OK if I were rich but I am not and slowly but surely facing a financial disaster. So, what do you think, will I hit the bottom (shelter and so on) or will I survive?

If you need to look at my chart:
13 October 1975, 11:26 AM
Leningrad, Russia

Thanks in advance for any insights,
Scorpious Libra

What’s Up With My Major Karma?

Dear Moonkissd,

My birth info is 2-11-71, 3:25pm, Seattle, WA. In the past few months, I’ve been struck with a severe bronchial cold (and fever), a major dog attack, and now some serious intestinal woes (coupled with fever). I heard someone mention that Sept-Dec ’07 is a time for major karmic patterns to surface and get worked out. Any idea what these events have to say about my major karmic patterns?

Gratefully,
Major Karma
