A Lifetime Under The Stars

Alexis Masters Late 2017As many of you know, I’ve been involved with astrology for most of my adult life. Since 1972, actually, when I was a young mother, avid bookworm, and seeker for meaning in a life that, aside from my babies, was not providing much in the way of soul sustenance. I devoured everything the great philosopher sage Dane Rudhyar wrote, then ventured into more textbook style learning from more contemporary astrologers. An old-time astrologer in Stockton, California whose name I lost years ago was the first—and last—to give me a full reading. The most memorable thing she had to say was that, according to  my chart, I would not find my path to success until very late in my life. So, needless to say, as the headstrong Aries Rising/Taurus Sun I am, I struggled against that idea for years, and now, here I am, at age 68, realizing how right she was!

My chart is below, using the Porphyry house calculation. Rudhyar always preferred Campanus, but cast my chart in Placidus because that was what I was used to. Just lately, though, I’ve found more meaning using this chart, with Pluto in my fourth instead of my fifth. It seems to be a better fit with my experience.

Moon is traveling through conscientious Virgo today. Watch for nagging. You probably are correct, but say it nicely. Run errands and don't forget to floss your teeth.
