Dr. Standley's Astrology Brain Dump

[Posted Friday, January 13, 2017]


There is an ice storm headed this way (I'm in St. Louis right now) which is going to put the freeze on everything and everyone, literally FREEZING us in place. This ice storm reminds me of how astrology works. It's the same kind of energy, it just looks different. Do you remember playing FREEZE TAG when you were a kid? When you get tagged you have to FREEZE in place like a mannequin until your teammate tags you unfrozen. The news reports have been telling us about this ice storm for several days. We knew it was coming. You have to be living under a rock to not know about this ice storm. Let's just say for arguments sake there is someone out there who doesn't have a smartphone, the internet or a television. All that person would have to do is step outside and feel the air. This energy, whoever is in its path, will not be able to escape it without some sort of inconvenience or impact on their Life. It is evident a nasty storm is coming because the water in your eyes and the mucus in your nose is already beginning to freeze when you take a half step out your door. Even the stray cats that we have taken under our wing have no desire to go outside.

As of this moment, at 8:00 AM CST, there is no ice yet, but we all know it's coming with or without news reports and Doppler Radar. We can feel it in the air and we are feeling the prodrome (early symptom) to freeze in place. The closer the storm is getting, the more serious the news reports become. The public has responded rightly by preparing to be shut-ins for several days. The grocery store shelves are being emptied of milk, bread, cereal, frozen pizza and meat. The public is getting extra fuel for their generators and filling up their cars with gasoline. Schools are already called off today and businesses are scheduling their employees for a half days work and using a minimal work force. Some employees are just taking a day off without pay or using a vacation or personal day. The transportation departments for both Missouri and Illinois (MODOT AND IDOT) have been preparing their work crews, trucks and huge mobile units for days and have already begun putting down a layer of salt brine last night (Thursday). Even the electric companies for Missouri and Illinois are preparing their workers, trucks and huge mobile units to be where they need to be. This is supposed to be a doozey of a storm. Everyone has been tipped off to it and by now, and everyone should be prepared. You would think, right?

Now here is why this ice storm reminds me of how astrology works. It's the same kind of energy, it just looks different. In Astrology, me and all of the other astrologers on the planet will tip you off to energy that is coming. You can feel energy coming, just like you can feel the storm coming when you step outside. We know it and the cats know it. The energy is in the air. Many times in the daily horoscopes I will mention when planets are approaching one another coming closer together in degrees or when they are separating from one another growing further apart in degrees. The closer the planets come together, the stronger the energy becomes. The further the planets move away from each other, the less the energy is. The approaching of two or more planets coming together of energies is called applying degrees. The separation of two or more planets growing further apart is called separating degrees. We know that something is about to occur or when it is ending because we can feel it. Applying degrees are the prodrome (early symptom) that tells us something is coming so we should prepare ourselves accordingly, whether that energy is Good, so-so, or bad. Just like the weather, sex, a bill that is due or even hunger. We can feeling that energy coming over us and so we act and react to that energy. It might be beautiful energy that supports a picnic, a wedding or a much needed conversation between two people. Or it could be ugly energy that makes you lie, cheat, steal or leave your partner. It's energy folks that turns into something real. The energy morphs into something that causes us to act or react in certain ways. In this case of this ice storm, people are preparing for the worst, as they should.

Now let's place you in this scenario. Let's just say that you prepared for this storm so much that you weren't inconvenienced at all. Let's just say that you did not suffer, all was well and it wasn't as bad as you thought. Well that all depends on how much you prepared. If you over-prepared, well then Good for you. If you prepared just enough, perhaps next time you will prepare just a bit more because that was a close one. If you under-prepared, well then I guess that'll teach you, right? The same goes with Astrology. The point of following Astrology and paying attention to the 'reports' (like the weather reports) is so that you are prepared and prayerfully you will not suffer. I want my little mentators to be over-prepared so that you don't hurt or suffer. I have a South Node Pisces, which makes me very sensitive to those who suffer, but I also wonder, "What's up with the struggle and why do people dig on that stuff!" PREPARE YOURSELF!

If I wrote your Expansive Natal Chart I did include in your 'Chart Points' section when you have an applying degree or a separating degree. Even in your Solar Return Report I indicate if two planets are applying or separating. And yes, even in the Compatibility / Synastry Reports I include applying and separating degrees. That's how important I feel it is for you to know this information. The applying degree is your INTUITION, because it is the prodrome (early symptom) that you are feeling. That is energy that is tipping you off that something is always right there giving you that feeling. Pay attention to your news report (charts)! This is how I know the likelihood of you acting or reacting in a certain way. It's in the chart, just like the weather reports. Stay off the roads means STAY OFF THE ROADS during that time! Get out your charts, blow the dust off of them and read those 'Chart Points' over and over and over again so you know where your intuition is strongest. The closer the degrees are to zero, the stronger the intuition (prodrome). And where you see the separating degree is where you will know that you should feel relieved or refreshed that the energy occurred at all. Relieved may mean that you weren't prepared. After this ice storm, I plan on feeling REFRESHED wondering, "Icestorm, what ice storm?" While at the same time feeling RELIEVED that I was over-prepared (as usual).

When using Astrology to help guide your Life, remember this ice storm because I'm already looking for the positive outcome down the road. Note that we are still experiencing a boatload of Pisces energy that is trine this Cancer Full Moon that was present yesterday. We are still in the midst of that powerful energy. When you put Cancer and Pisces energy together then it creates BABIES! Cancer rules home and family, while Pisces rules a school of fish. These are two incredibly fertile signs and Pisces energy can easily create TWINS (the two fish). So it's not a surprise that a Pisces Sun Sign, Pisces North Node or someone who has a Pisces strong chart would end up with twins. My mama bear (mom) is a Cancer and my poppy seed (dad) is a Pisces and they literally have a school of fish (6 children) with 3 of their 6 children being Gemini. Yep, I'm one of 6 children, and 1 of the 3 Gemini children. Not to mention, the 3 of us who are Gemini's are Irish Twins, meaning the three of us were born under 12 months apart. In fact, I'm the middle of the 3 Gemini children so I am an Irish Twin to two people. Cue the calliope music. So I'm already looking ahead and down the road 9 months to see the wave of babies being born along the boundaries of this ice storm, not to mention in the areas where blizzards are occurring. (winky wink) Baby it's cold outside! Stay Warm and Stay Astrologized™

Here we go Pisces, here we go! (Fin Fin) Here we go Pisces, here we go! (Fin Fin) Here we go Pisces, here we go! (Fin Fin) Here we go Pisces, here we go! (Fin Fin)

I say, "Fin Fin" because Pisces has fins and no hands. (Winky wink) Today the Moon moves into Pisces at 11:20 AM EST and joins a collection of energies already in Pisces. The Moon will remain connected to these energies until Wednesday, January 4, 2017 at 11:20 AM EST. That collection of energies includes the South Node in Pisces, Neptune in Pisces, Mars in Pisces, Venus in Pisces and Chiron in Pisces.

A Stellium is a cluster of at least four or more planets in the same sign and same house. A 10° orb is a must if the planets are in different signs in the same house and even this would be a judgment call on the part of the astrologer. I for one, am an old school astrologer, and I think relaxing the rules to include different signs is stretching astrology to make it somehow 'work'. Some astrologers will consider a cluster of three or more planets in the same sign as a Stellium without consideration of the degrees or crossing over two houses. I find that to be a 'reach' or a 'push'. Since I have experience with thousands of charts, since I was 12 years old, I feel my experience is unique and making me more than qualified to make that judgment call. The occupied house and/or sign contains a tremendous intensity and complexity of energies represented by the planets involved. Many times when planets are crossing over two houses this needs to be a professional judgment call by the astrologer considering the strength and degree of the involved planets. Simply having an asteroid (like Chiron), an outer planet (Neptune, Pluto or Uranus) and a luminary (the Moon) I would not consider worthy of being dubbed a Stellium and especially if something like this crossed over two houses. Even if it were four heavenly bodies involved I would have to look at 'what is' involved. Having some 'real planets' involved matters!

A Stellium is a cluster of at least four or more planets in the same sign and same house. A 10° orb is a must if the planets are in different signs in the same house and even this would be a judgment call on the part of the astrologer.

Whenever one of the Nodes is involved, then it would be wise to remember that the South Node has a massive amount of strength in and of itself. If this were a card game, the South Node in Pisces would win standing alone, and beat a hand of five with the Moon, Neptune, Mars, Venus and Chiron. THAT'S how strong a South Node influence is. Now we look at this Stellium and see that Pisces adds to the mix and PULLS on the other energies involved. Keep in mind the South Node is the drain or the hole in the chart. It is the bottomless pit that cannot filled no matter how much energy you pour into it. Basically this means you don't have to try as hard as you think because the energy just 'is' without any extra help, drama or input on your part. It's the North Node you should pay attention to, but that's not how people operate, which would be the easy route. We unconsciously, subconsciously and sometimes even consciously move toward that which will challenge us. If we just let the South Node be, then it wouldn't be so hard, but we as humans feel the need to dump even more energy into it. Now we have the Universe contributing 3 planets (Mars, Venus, Neptune), 1 luminary (the Moon) and 1 asteroid (Chiron) to the mix. Pisces rules 'chemicals' and is the energy of the 'chemical dependent'. The Truth is we don't really have to do drugs or consume alcohol to get us to a state of Nirvana with the South Node in Pisces present because we can honestly get 'High on Life' without it, but consume drugs and alcohol with the South Node in Pisces present and you can honestly drown a fish. The fish is fine in the Ocean, but a Tsunami will undoubtedly kill the fish! This is why alcohol and drugs will never serve someone with a natal South Node Pisces (like myself) because it's too much psychedelic, fantastical and imaginative energy causing the waters to swirl and then whirlpool and then down you go. Come on in, the water is fine, but the tidal wave is the killer.

Neptune in Pisces

We are also experiencing Neptune in Pisces, which is its home placement and that is a Good thing. If you have been reading and re-reading your Generational Horoscope where you will find Neptune in Pisces, then you already know that Neptune in Pisces wants closeness, intimacy, hand-to-hand contact and face-to-face connections with deeper feelings, almost like a sonar feeling (like a fish). As Neptune grows back in Love in its home sign of Pisces, I believe Love will return to what it was meant to be, but that will take some time. Neptune is an outer planet, which means it is a generational planet that impacts an entire generation of people. It takes a long time for Neptune, Uranus and Pluto to move through one sign, years in fact, because it is affecting a generation and this is where the patterns are being broken. One generation has to 'get the get' and make the changes, while another generation dies. It's just the way it is. This 'Love' will be a face-to-face connection and not a computer-to-computer connection where we can remain aloof and distant. I have already found myself backing off computer friendships that proved to be 'unreal' and could stand the test of a little wave, which means that the connections would not be able to handle a tidal wave. We want our friendships to be able to withstand tidal waves, don't we? Don't you? Neptune in Pisces will test our imagination, even through friendships because we 'Love' through our friendships. Many of you are likely seeing the same thing. How many of you had a relationship/friendship(s) that were years in the making, possibly even from childhood, that you are no longer connected to because it turned 'computer generated' and you lost the 'face to face connection'? Neptune in Pisces will bring us back to Love, but it will take some time. It will happen folks because that is Neptune's job. Mars in Pisces on DrStandley.com

We are also experiencing Mars in Pisces, which strives strongly toward the spiritual path of enLightenment. Pisces happens to be THE MOST fearful sign of the zodiac, so you will see a lot of postings in social media about the fear, rather than the spiritual side of this Pisces energy. Fear generates conversation, Likes, comments and hits, so I suppose if you want to go down that path there will be plenty of people to join you on your quest to generate fear. The Truth is, Pisces is THE MOST intuitive sign of the zodiac and when you couple this collection of energy with Mars in Pisces, then you will have one whale-of-ah-fish-tank of energy that takes intuition to another level. BUT, if you are riding the fear, drugs, addict, suicide, victim conversation, you will not be able to see this other side of Pisces. It all depends on what you want to tune in to. Pisces is the ruler of 'poor me syndrome' so you can go there if you like, but you will need to remember that the South Node Pisces is present and it does not have permission to be a victim. Being a victim will not work for you and if you watch the news, including politics, playing the victim is not going to work.

Pisces ruled by Neptune is the tuning fork (the trident) that wants you to tune-in like a Tune-ah-Fish! Pisces can tune in with its sonar and vibratory senses in order to see what is ahead. Pisces is the visionary of the zodiac because it is a flat fish with an eyeball on each side of its head. This gives Pisces a 360 degree field of vision, so Pisces can see everything. Seeing something and doing something about it are two different things. Think of the fish who use a fantastic sense of smell and sonar to navigate the water. Pisces has an insane sense of smell and those of you who are South Node Pisces like me absolutely cannot stand horrible smells. Even a smelly fart by someone near could make someone like me throw up and the smell of dirty feet will just put me over the edge. Pisces rules the feet (fins). Using your intuition and being in 'monk-mode' (reflective and meditative) is the card you need to play during this Pisces energy. Due to my South Node Pisces, this is what makes me so strongly clair-audient and clair-sentient (intuitive hearing and feeling) because I have developed it. You can call it hearing voices but quite honestly, I hear only one Voice, which I believe is God speaking to me, through me. Remember, I am a South Node Pisces so intuition 'should come' easy to me, so I embrace that part of me and so it does come easy to me. This Pisces energy, which has a strong intuitive and spiritual presence coupled with actions of 'monk mode' or the 'chain gang' is where you need to be in order to figure out (intuitively) your next move. Venus in Pisces on DrStandley.com

Venus will move into Pisces on Tuesday, January 3, 2017 until Friday, February 3, 2017 at 10:52 AM EST and is the final piece of this Stellium Pisces puzzle. Venus in Pisces is in its exalted state and reveals unconditional Love. That's 32 days of Venus in Pisces. Now remember, Neptune is the higher octave of Venus, so here we have Venus and Neptune in Pisces, makin' beautiful Love. This graphic of Pepé Le Pew (the skunk) who is constantly in search of a Love, from a CAT . . is the perfect representation of my parents. My Poppy Seed acts like the skunk and my Mama Bear acts like the cat. Wait, there is no acting, these two are the skunk and the cat! Venus in Pisces can cause people to be so drunk in Love that they Love at all costs, which translates into unconditional Love. This can show up two ways 1) I Love you unconditionally and 2) I Love you unconditionally, so go ahead and do anything you want to hurt me and I will still be here Loving you holding onto your ankles as you are walking out the door. Venus in Pisces is absolutely hands down, unconditional and punch drunk Love. Venus in Pisces will still Love even when it doesn't make sense to Love or even when it isn't healthy.

Pisces is also THE MOST fearful sign of the zodiac who flips their tail and heads off in the opposite direction at the slightest sound. Often times I go down to the dock to feed the catfish and before I even step on the dock I can hear the fish flip their tail and swim away. I'm left standing there saying, "I had something for you. I was going to feed you. I had abundance for you." But they swam away. So I step onto the dock, throw out the fish food and wait. And I wait. And I wait. Finally the fish come back and enjoy the abundance. Due to their fear, they prolonged their own abundance. Pisces needs to slow down a bit and tune-in to what they hear (intuition). Go into monk-mode. All too often Pisces doubts their intuition and flips their tail heading off in the other direction as a natural instinct rather than tuning in like a Tune-ah-Fish! Tune-in folks!

Chiron is the wounded healer

Chiron in Pisces is asking you to use your suffering, to help others through their suffering. It has been known for quite some time that we teach what we need to learn. Your suffering is not 'for not'. It is 'for something'. Your suffering is not so that you can be a victim and cry "poor me". Your suffering helps you relate to other people so that you can heal yourself. I had been sharing with you over the past couple of months what a rotten Solar Return I have. While going through such difficult times from the beginning of April 2016 until the end of October 2016, I had forgotten to look at my own Solar Return that I had written for myself months earlier. I had been seeking knowledge outside of my own knowledge and was getting nowhere. Then because a client asked me about their Solar Return, it reminded me of my own. Once I read through my Solar Return Report then I knew exactly what I needed to do in order to make things happen for myself in the right direction. I knew the 'cosmic spell' I was under and what needed to change. My action changed everything about how my year ended. And I had the most amazing November and December 2016 with my parents. It could not have been more perfect, but you see folks, my suffering is what I needed to go through in order to bring a heightened sense of awareness to you. Through my own suffering I teach what I need to know and now you know it too. That's how this works.

When the Moon moves into Pisces I always tell you this is 'monk mode' energy. Pisces naturally rules what goes on behind the scenes, what nobody else sees and what you don't want others to see or know about you. Pisces rules monastaries, monks, cloistered nuns, institutions, jails, prisons, unemployment, hospitals, sanitariums, secret societies and so much more. These are places where people are often hidden and not seen. Pisces is a water sign, which rules the Ocean. Pisces is dreamy, imaginative, contemplative, reflective, extremely intuitive, inspirational, artistic, lyrical, musical and peaceful. Pisces is really a Lover, not a fighter. If you know a combative Pisces, then that person likely has some strong warrior Aries planets in their chart or they have some strong rebellious Aquarius in their chart.

So you see my dear little mentators, Pisces is so much more that chemical, drug addicts, alcoholics, chemical dependents and jail. If you use your intuition to help yourself (and others) then you will be more inclined to embrace the spiritual side of this energy rather than the physical side of this energy. Pisces rules the invisible plane, while its counterpart Virgo rules the visible plane. Pisces is rules what is unseen and Virgo rules what is seen.

Intuition is when God is speaking in-tu-it and the it happens to be you

Since I already began a whole other 'different' website a couple of years ago to help you increase your intuition, I never really went back to it to load it up with information. This is what I will be doing under this Pisces energy. The name of that website is www.DownloadFromGod.com. This is where I will be posting ideas, stories, tools and thoughts to help you increase your own intuition. It is after all my South Node and something that I already know a lot about. Now I use my North Node Virgo and manifest it into the physical plane by giving you some tools and lessons to get you there as well. And during this Stellium in Pisces, with the South Node Pisces is the perfect way to channel it. Folks, please do not waste this beautiful energy on fear. Take this energy for what it is meant to be. Take it all the way to LOVE and INTUITION! And as I always say, "Intuition is when God is speaking in-tu-it and the 'it' happens to be you!™" Stay Warm and Stay Astrologized™
