Solar Eclipse: Hypothesis About Short-Term Personal Disturbance

I found another interesting pattern about some disturbance or bad omen related to the solar eclipse.

Most of the time, if we search about any article related to the Solar Eclipse phenomenon and its meaning in astrology, we saw the phenomenon is translated on a positive tone. The keyword usual astrology article is “Massive Change related to sun position in our chart.”

I personally have no comment about that since on myself, It didn’t feel like a massive change on me, even though I’m giving time like 10 – 20 days after. Instead of that, I found another interesting pattern about some disturbance or bad omen related to the solar eclipse.

I don’t think I need to explain in a long article. But in some cultures and religions: ancient Babylonian, China, and especially Hinduism nowadays treat solar eclipse is a bad omen. Many legends tell about a chaotic situation, war, calamity, or the death of the great king will happen along with solar eclipse.

Once again, this article is also purely my hypothesis and it still needs a lot of research to see its validity. In my personal research, this kind of solar eclipse for last year have some tremendous effects on each people. The keyword for this one is “short-term personal disturbance”.

Knowing the potential disturbance from solar eclipse of personal level

If some legends tell us about solar eclipse’s impact on our macro/ mundane condition, then how do they impact our personal level? Fortunately, I’ve found those interesting patterns easily. Here’s the condition:

  1. We only use Sun Sign, although we still need to look at our own birth chart
  2. We look at our sun sign AS 1st HOUSE
  3. See which zodiac has solar eclipse
  4. Count which position of the house, from our sun sign zodiac (as the 1st house)
  5. The short-term disturbance will likely happen along with the solar eclipse moment, from start to finish.

So, for example, my sun sign is Capricorn. I treat Capricorn as the 1st house. On 2021 December 4th, there’s a solar eclipse in Sagittarius. Sagittarius is the 12th house from Capricorn. And from the beginning of the solar eclipse to finish, I’ve somehow got an indescribable headache like it’s not feeling pain, but I feel like a combination of my conscious is only half, can not focus, my head feels lighter. I’m still can move and do some everyday activities, but I literally can not think at that time.

Another example, at the same time, my friend who is an Aries sun sign, since the solar eclipse happened in Sagittarius, he confirm to me that he experience a delay in his traveling when the solar eclipse happened. Unfortunately, it’s only him who got delayed for a whole day. Since for Aries, Sagittarius is his 9th house, house of travel, it’s too coincidence, right?

The last example, also my friend, who is a Pisces sun sign, at the same time she has something terrible happened in her career. Sagittarius is the 10th house from Pisces. She nearly got layoff because she got angry with her boss at that time because of some miscommunication and turns out, it’s the company system that leads to those miscommunications and it isn’t slightly her fault at that time.

Knowing the disturbance

Since we already know in which house (from our sun sign) the disturbance will likely happen, here’s some guidance to identify.

House (relative
to sun sign)
Type of disturbance
(at the moment of the solar eclipse)
1Our overall productivity, better don’t do anything at solar eclipse and just enjoy your time at that moment
2Transaction, money/ possession related disturbance
3communication (like mercury retrograde effect) & commute
4family, home, parent, more emotional to them than usual
5child, love affair, creative working
6physical activities, everyday job routine, suddenly feels very tired
7spouse, business partner, can get miscommunication easily
8joint asset, financial right and obligation, avoid making financial / investment related decision at this time
9long travel, religion/ spirituality, divination work, can get delayed
10overall career and reputation, careful of the working system
11your socialization with your friend, never take their say to your heart
12your mind/ subconscious, concentration, do anything that can relax your mind

The Next Eclipse in 2022 ?

in 2022, we have two partial solar eclipse:

  1. April 31st in Taurus
  2. October 25th in Scorpio

I sincerely hope by providing this hypothesis and information, we can prepare ourselves to mitigate its effect on us on a personal level and avoid any unnecessary activities that bring us more trouble than it needs to.

A Little Insight of House 4th and 10th: Family Dynamics

I found some interesting pattern that if at least one planet in 4th house but no planet in 10th house or vice versa, then there’s a high probability that one parental figure is very ‘dominant’ than the others.

I’m writing this article with the same intention as the previous one: to share my insight about astrology based on my observation of the chart. Although this one I’m confident that this knowledge could be used as insight for our astrological practice, it still needs more time to observe its validity.

Photo by Emma Bauso on Pexels.com

So, what I’m talking about? I’m discussing the 4th house and 10th house in astrology. Usually, astrologers said that the 4th house is regarding mother and the 10th house about father, or vice versa, depending on which approach you learn so far. But since every country has its own culture about parenting, I think that those mother-father information in the 4th and 10th house are not relevant anymore.

I kinda agree with writing from Kris Brandt Riske from the book ” Llewellyn’s Complete Book of Astrology “, for let’s just say that 4th house related to parental figure that makes ‘rules’ in the house, while 10th house related to parental figure that going outside the house for work. In this case, we can add many layers of interpretation, since nowadays man doesn’t always have more money than woman while woman doesn’t always become a ‘full-time housewife ‘.

I think that the 4th and 10th house interpretations are very related to co-parenting trend in this modern era.

After you know my interpretation about those houses, let’s jump into some insight about the 4th and 10th house interpretation. Here I’ve found two interesting patterns in the astrology chart.

Pattern 1: if at least one planet is in 4th house but no planet in 10th house or vice versa, then the native is being cared AS IF being cared by SINGLE PARENT

I found some interesting pattern that if at least one planet in 4th house but no planet in 10th house or vice versa, then there’s a high probability that one parental figure is very ‘dominant’ than the others.

It can be two things: the native is being raised with one figure very dominant over the others, or the native’s biological mother/ father passes away at a relatively early age.

For the first scenario, most of the time because of some circumstances, only one parent figure sets the rules in the house while at the same time, he/ she goes to work. Another parental figure will likely not be very dominant or give the very least value to the native’s life. Maybe because of the family’s culture, or maybe because they are divorced and the native just follows one of them, or simply because one biological father/ mother just does not really care about the native.

The other probability is, one of biological parent figure is died in the native’s early life. But in this case, we need to be very careful here. We should ask the native condition through some question like…. “Is one parent figure very dominant in raising you? Which one? How’s the other figure take care of you?” than playing some ‘psychic trick’ here. At least, that’s my approach as Astrology Consultant.

Example of Pattern 1

Here we look some example of celebrity chart as if being raised by single parent.

Barrack Obama
Official Portrait of Barrack Obama, 2012 from Wikipedia
Barrack Obama , WholeSign House , from Astro.com

Barrack Obama has his parent divorced and raised by his mother, Ann Durham with the help of his maternal grandparent. In his chart, we see 4th house with no planet while neptune is in his 10th house.

The next one is …

Halle Berry
Berry at the 2017 San Diego Comic-Con , from wikipedia
Halle Berry , WholeSign House , from astro.com

Halle Berry and her sister, are raised by single mother, Judith Ann after their father left when she was only 4 years old. She has Moon, Mercury, and Sun in Leo, 4th house while no planets in Aquarius, 10th house.

Now the last example…,

Jay-Z
Jay-Z 2011, from Wikipedia
Jay-Z, WholeSign House, from astro.com

Jay-Z and his 3 siblings were raised in Brooklyn by his mother, Gloria, after their father abandoned the family. He has Sun and Mercury in Sagittarius, 4th house while no planet in Gemini, 10th house. Remember, MC is a ‘point’ not a real planet.

Before moving on to another pattern, I want to clarify, it’s not necessarily mean that all children raised by a single parent will have the same pattern in the 4th and 10th house; even a child without those patterns still has the potential to be raised only by one dominant parental figure. But from my experience, all my clients with that pattern, have one very dominant parent figure. So yeah, it’s not the other way around.

Ok, unto 2nd pattern…

Pattern 2: if no planet is in the 4th and 10th house, there’s a high probability that the native is raised not with the biological parent.

I found that while doing some consultation, if the native chart has no planet, both in the 4th and 10th house, it means that they are being raised not by biological mother and father. Either they are being raised by their parent’s sibling (like uncle/ aunt) because of some circumstances, by their grandparent, or by the foster parent. In some extreme cases, the native is adopted either because their parent can’t raise them in some way, or they have already passed away.

This is also a sensitive topic, so if you want to use this analysis, I recommend approaching this softly. For example, ask/ confirm the client like, “Who raised you at your early age if I may know?” or “Is somehow, because of some circumstances, you’re raised not by the biological parent?”

Example of Pattern 2

Ok, the first one is…

John Lennon
John Lennon 1969, from wikipedia
John Lennon, WholeSign Houses, from astro.com

Many accounts of John Lennon’s early life are ambiguous, but one thing that certainly is, from childhood to adolescence, he’s raised by his aunt, Mimi Smith, and Mimi’s husband. We see there are no planets in the 4th and 10th house.

Next one is…

Steve Jobs
Steve Jobs, from wikipedia
Steve Jobs, WholeSign House, from astro.com

Steve Jobs’s biological parents were unmarried, and adopted by Paul and Clara Jobs. In his chart, we see no planets in his 4th and 10th house.

Ruth Westheimer
Ruth Westheimer 2018, from Wikipedia
Ruth Westheimer, WholeSign House, from astro.com

She’s known as Dr. Ruth, a Jewish German – American Sex Therapist. From Wikipedia, we know she was sent to an orphanage while she was 10 and her parent were killed in the concentration camp in World War II. As we see in her chart, no planets in the 4th and 10th house.

I’m seeing this kind of pattern mostly when I’m using WholeSign House System or Equal House System. In my experience, these patterns can’t be reversed, which means we still find a native in foster care even though there’re planets in the 4th and 10th house. But…., if we see the native chart and 4th and 10th house are missing planet, then there’s a high probability they are cared not by biological parent…, and it doesn’t mean that their parent passes away. It’s best to think that some external circumstances make their biological parent can’t raise their children. 

Final Thought

Although I found this pattern intriguing, especially by using the Wholesign house system (and sometimes in equal house system), I’m not asking this kind of question directly like “Is your parent died?” since it’s too judging (and I might be wrong about that). But I’m usually asking in a softer approach like, “How’s your parent? Are they taking care of you while you are still a child?”.

Hope this article can contribute to astrology knowledge at large and become useful in your astrology reading practice.

My Hypothesis About Chiron in Medical Astrology

Chiron is rarely mentioned in those medical astrology literature. Although we know Chiron as an archetype of Wounded Healer : The one who heal others by learning from his own wound at the same time.

The Education of Achilles by Chironfresco from Herculaneum, 1st century AD (Museo Archeologico Nazionale, Naples)

Most of the time, either in modern or traditional astrology, the astrologer will evaluate the client’s medical condition by seeing each planet’s condition. In a more simple term, we see which planet has more than one hard aspect, especially through the malefic planet, and we make analyze any potential illness the native will likely experience throughout their life. And also as a bonus, which supplement can reduce/ mitigate those illnesses.

But through my study and ( little ) research, Chiron is rarely mentioned in the medical astrology literature. Although we know Chiron as an archetype of Wounded Healer: The one who heals others by learning from his wound at the same time. Most likely we found Chiron as an Archetype of Healing factor in our modern astrology practice.

The Usual Chiron Meaning

When we see Chiron in the birth chart, some new students at astrology will find it hard to translate this kind of archetype to a more concrete example. To put it simply, astrologers mostly interpret Chiron as the place (the house in our chart) we found some healing factor and that’s correct. But maybe, not the whole story.

From my own experience, depends on which house system you’ll use (I’m using Placidus and wholesign house complementary for birth chart reading), I found that the location of Chiron is to know the aspect of our life that we potentially have/ will face a traumatic event.

For example, someone who has Chiron in the 5th house will likely face his traumatic experience in his childhood when he has children. Someone who has Chiron in the 8th house will likely face her traumatic experience related to a joint asset, sex, or death itself.

And for this one, it’s very helpful as an alternative tool for assessment, especially for a psychologist who is also an astrologer, to find which traumatic/wounded event will be most deep in the client’s psyche.

My Hypothesis About Chiron’s Another Significator

While most medical astrology are using planet (both natal and transit) to analyze a client’s disease, I’ve found through consultation and some famous people’s birth charts, there are some correlations between potential diseases or some impact on our body when we experience some accident. In short, body sickness comes from an “outside factor”.

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com

Yeah, in medical astrology, we analyze our potential sickness to our body that comes from within by analyzing our planet in our birth chart. While I think, we can analyze the potential sickness of our body that comes from harm outside our body. That’s my hypothesis right now.

How to analyse Chiron ? It’s rather simple…

  1. Just locate our Chiron in which zodiac
  2. Find the planetary rulership of those zodiac
  3. See-through literature or google, which part of the body that rules by that zodiac and planet.
  4. And voila, you’ll know which part of your body that will be harmed if you experience some extreme accident at a later time.

In some cases, this kind of ‘accident’ can happen only once, twice, or several times in your lifetime. Some traditional Hellenistic methods can help us “how many times” the accident potential will happen in our lifetime: through a simple quadruplicities of the zodiac, annual profection, or even more complex zodiacal releasing method especially from lot of fortune.

Example Chart 1 : Christopher Reeves

Christopher Reeve from Wikipedia
Christopher Reeve using WholeSign House from astro.com

We see the Chiron is in house 6th in Capricorn.

Capricorn usually rules on knees and joint problems within the bone. Capricorn is also ruled by Saturn, which is synonymized as ruler of frame of the body, which is skin and also our bones, depending on the chart.

And when we search Christopher Reeve on Wikipedia, we found that he broke his neck because he was thrown from a horse in a competition accident. He’s paralyzed from his shoulder and using a wheelchair and ventilator for the rest of his life.

The keyword like he can’t move his body from shoulder / his move is very limited, is very Capricorn and Saturnian thing.

The same can also be seen at the next chart

Example Chart 2 : Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo From Wikipedia
Frida Kahlo using WholeSign House from astro.com

Frida Kahlo, a Mexican painter known for her portrait, is also had an accident that makes her suffer from a long pain in her life.

We see from her chart that Chiron is in Aquarius, and ruled by Saturn and Uranus. Aquarius is known for ruling the calves and ankles of the leg and also the spinal cord. Saturn, we know as the ruler of body frame. While Uranus we know as “spontan muscle spasm” and nervous spasm (along with Mercury).

We know the moment when she changes her life direction from a physician into becoming a painter when she suffer a bus accident: Fractured pelvic bone, punctured abdomen and uterus, spine broken in three places, right leg broken in eleven places, and later on, displaced vertebrae in three places.

So we see some combination here: Aquarius which ruled calves and ankles is broken, accident in Saturn quality (both bone and skin), and also muscle injury (Uranus).

I think those 3 factors: leg in specific, bones and muscle are suffering the most. Even though she recovered from those injuries.

Example Chart 3: Native

My own client chart (without mentioning the name, date of birth, and time of birth), we see some interesting Chiron places…

Native Chart, WholeSign Houses, using Solar Fire 9

We see Chiron in Cancer, which famously rule the stomach and digestive system. The moon as Cancer Ruler is also indicating that emotional treat related to the moon’s cycle.

This is my friend’s chart and he always said to me that he needs to be very careful of what he is eating. Otherwise, he’ll likely have a digestive problem. So yeah, we can see some digestive problem (Cancer) that comes from outside. While at the same time, the moon as Cancer’s ruler, makes him can go from a chill to an emotional person and back to chill in a short time. He also said to me that seeing/ meditating while seeing the full moon in the sky, helps him calm his nerve tremendously.

A Hypothesis That Still Needs More Data

This Chiron archetype as medical astrology stuff, for me, is still a hypothesis and still needs some more data to prove that. Any help by proofing or countering my hypothesis is very much welcome; and hope if my hypothesis is right, we can use this Chiron for our future astrology practice, especially in the medical field.

When Astrology And Tarot Are Complementing Each Other

In my professional practice, I’m using both, even though I relying mostly on astrology. Why? Because both method have their own ‘strength’ and also challenge.

We can assume that Astrology is much older knowledge than Tarot Card since the first tarot deck is found around mid 15th century. And we also know that the Tarot system, compiled by Aleister Crowley himself, is fusing several systems like Qabalah with its Tree of Life, numerology, I-Ching, and of course archetype from Astrology.

Then, we also know that most of the time, lots of spiritual practitioners combine astrology and also tarot cards for their practice, personally and professionally. Most tarot readers can jump relatively easier astrology and vice versa because of one thing that has in common: astrological archetype.

In my professional practice, I’m using both, even though I rely mostly on astrology. Why? Because both methods have their own ‘strength’ and also challenge.

Tarot : a Fast Brainstorming Tool for Any Answer ( if you can think objectively)

If somehow I’ve got some client in the middle of the road and asking me some question, and because of some condition, I can’t access the internet (lol, just joking), then I’m using a tarot card to brainstorm the answer.

Photo by Anastasia Shuraeva on Pexels.com

We have to admit that the tarot is a very versatile tool for brainstorming some answers for practically any question we want to ask. From our love life, which careers that we want to choose, which house we want to buy, which country destination, etc, the most tool that is available to us right now is the tarot card. Why? Simple, most of us bring our cards along.

Any question we want to ask can be answered directly and fast, by shuffling our tarot cards, drawing 1 to 3 cards, and interpreting them.

And who is not interested in doing some short practical magick ritual with a tarot card? Sending our thoughts to the universe in the hope they answer our prayers through our tarot card’s visual symbolism.

Tarot, besides as tool for divination ( meaning: to connect with the divine), brainstorming the answer, tools for magical ritual, brainstorming tools for some idea/ inspiration for making a story, music, and any other entertaining and inspiring media, also can be used for meditation. Even some people use tarot cards as a substitution for the feng shui element in their home!

But that tarot card, especially in consulting practice, is not without its caveat. Wait, they have a caveat? Yes, you heard it right.

To be brutally honest, our tarot card interpretation, even when we draw the card, depends on our mental condition, like it or not.

Photo by Nataliya Vaitkevich on Pexels.com

Trust me, our reading with a client when our mind isn’t straight, too tired, or under intense stress, rarely results in objectively reading. Plus, we have our own mindset/ value of something. Some people can be neutral reading for let’s say…., a prostitute while some people aren’t. And that kind of bias will affect our reading immensely.

Astrology : An Objective Data With (A Rather Long) Process and Analysis

Then what about astrology?

Astrology itself is also a very versatile tool, albeit for a different purpose. Besides profiling our ‘easy’ and ‘challenging’ potential, we can use astrology for mundane analysis (well….politic and stuff), event analysis and potential, determining our best and worst period with some timing technique, and even we can do some ‘divination’ also with astrology.

And who doesn’t want to know the exact date and time to have some ritual specifics to our needs?

Photo by Pavel Danilyuk on Pexels.com

Also, the one important side of astrology is, the output data ( a.k.a our birth chart) is very objective. If we input the same date, time, and city where we’re born, the birth chart is always the same. The rest is how we interpret the birth chart.

But let’s be honest, most astrologer needs time to prepare the client’s chart, prepare the timing period material, prepare the keyword for analysis, and so on, especially if it’s a very important and detailed topic.

Written report? If we do the written astrology report (assume we do it ‘manually’), we take time to analyze and choose the writing language as not to offend our client, if we found something rather sensitive on that topic.

And Astrology is very time-sensitive. If we can’t get the client’s birth time (which is a privilege in some countries and generations), even if we have some alternate method to analyze, the reading will be less accurate.

The Reason I’m Using Both: Complementing Each Other

That’s the reason I’m using both for my practice. I’m using tarot card for more intuitive and fast reading, while I’m relying more on Astrology if I have time to prepare the answer before consultation session with my client.

Photo by Anna Shvets on Pexels.com

And it turns out, they really complement each other. While tarot reading can brainstorm and add more inspiration about how the event will unfold, astrology can also add much more detail about when the event has a high chance of happening.

And with astrology, my reading becomes much more objective without relying on some “time cycle” (like moon cycle, transiting Neptune phase, etc) to make my intuition more accurate.
