Client Observations – I recently worked with a client who had a couple of interesting asteroid connections in her chart. A series of difficult transits and solar arc directed midpoints left her with some hard knocks over the last year. Her husband got involved with another woman and left her and her beloved dog died among other events. Her mother is an astrologer but she wanted some insight from someone who did not know her. Significant in her chart were the asteroids Chaldea (for astrology) and Kassandra (advice giving) on her Moon. Considering that the moon usually represents the mother, I thought that was very appropriate. The other significant signature was the asteroid Cerebus (dog) on her ASC. and also Fidelity which this year was conjunct by her Mars/Saturn midpoint. This is one of midpoints that will indicate death literally or symbolically. In this case, it was literally the death of her dog and symbolically the end of her husband’s fidelity.
New Years Eve Wedding – I was twice blessed this year with my Daughter Elyse’s wedding to Michael and recently with my son Nick to Wendy on New Year’s Eve day in Destin FL. The wedding took place in a lovely little chapel and the reception was held at the incredible house that they rented for the week for the family. It was four stories of pure luxury right on a white sand beach! I have found that name asteroids for places show up in our charts when we are traveling somewhere so let’s start with the asteroid for Florida and the asteroid Destin. Florida fell on Nick’s MC and Wendy’s S. Node. Destin fell on Nick’s ASC. and Wendy’s Sun (which are conjunct). The asteroid Wendy fell on Wendy’s Venus and Nick’s ASC. while asteroid Nicky fell on Nick’s ASC. and Wendy’s MC. We had two love asteroids. Amor which fell on Nick’s Mercury which rules his house of marriage and on Wendy’s directed MC. Anteros (mutual love) fell on Nick’s ASC. and Wendy’s Sun. Asteroid Church was on Nick’s MC and Wendy’s Moon, while House was on Nick’s ASC and Wendy’s Sun. Asteroid Guests was on Nick’s Moon and Wendy’s Jupiter which rules her ASC. Both asteroids for marriage were active. Juno aspecting Nick’s Venus (in his house of marriage) and Wendy’s Venus, Sun and ASC. Lada aspected Nick’s Mercury (ruler of his marriage house) and Wendy’s ASC. and Jupiter. Asteroid Groom was on Nick’s Moon and Wendy’s Jupiter. The asteroid for ocean is Poseidon which aspected Nick’s Mercury and Wendy’s directed MC. And to wind this up, the asteroid for good luck, Tyche was aspecting Nick’s Sun and Wendy’s Moon. There you have it. Uncanny isn’t it?
