Dr. Standley's Astrology Brain Dump

As I wrote on my Facebook page(s) this morning, I have been fielding a lot of questions regarding the state of the human mind on a psychological level. One question after the next, folks are asking me, "What is going on with people and their sensitivity?" The world has gone mad (crazy) and it has gone mad (angry). The level of public anxiety has reached a fever-pitch at over-whelming proportions to the point that it has become a global crisis. The inability of many individuals to cope with confrontation is at an all time low. The easy answer is to pop a pill in order to cope or have another cocktail and laugh it off.

Crisis management is lacking individually, in the community, in the state, in the country or around the globe. As I always say, "Whatever is happening on a global level, is happening on a national level, is happening on a community (local) level, is happening on a personal level." Tolerance is low, while intolerance has skyrocketed. And the strangest part of 'the tolerance movement' is there is no tolerance with those who do not agree with the so-called 'tolerant', which further perpetuates intolerance creating the 'catch-22' contradictory situation.

I have seen great intolerance shown in support of tolerance. ~Samuel Taylor Coleridge

The North Node in Virgo and the South Node in Pisces

On the astrology side of all of this, it is a fairly easy interpretation if you just look at the big picture. We are in the midst of the North Node in Virgo and the South Node in Pisces, which will last until May 9, 2017, which draws out mental health issues (Pisces) and puts the focus on physical day-to-day regimens that would promote good day-to-day living and physical health (Virgo). Pisces is the sign that rules people who have gone mad (crazy) or those who are depressed, either clinically depressed, spiritually bankrupt or emotionally corrupt. Pisces rules mental health, institutions, depression, skeletons in the closet, drunks, drunkardness, jails, prisons, one's downfall, secret enemies, distress, informers, cheating, those who are strange or crazy, drugs, alcohol, deceit, delusions, confinement, poverty and slavery. Pisces is also that compassionate sign that is empathetic and sympathetic to the plights of others. Pisces is over-the-top benevolent and tends to rescue those who are have run into misfortune or those who are unfortunate. Pisces cannot stand to see someone in pain physically, spiritually or emotionally. Pisces is the silent-sufferer.

Now let us remember that the South Node is the bottomless pit, drain or hole in the chart. When there is a hole in your pocket, no matter how much energy you put into the pocket (let's say coins) then the coins would just fall straight through to the ground. You cannot fill up a pocket when there is a hole in it. Well, the South Node is currently in Pisces, which contributes to depression, those who strange, those who have an inability to cope, which makes one turn to drugs or alcohol, or become consumed by one of the other strong aspects that is ever present and dangerous. It's no secret, I have a South Node Pisces and before the South Node went into Pisces in November 2015 I stopped any and all consumption of alcohol in July 2015. For a South Node Pisces, drinking is a HUGE no-no because it will consume you and make you just about as unattractive as you can be.

Saturn in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces

The above would also be True for anyone who had an afflicted Neptune, meaning badly placed (aspected), because Neptune rules Pisces. The South Node Pisces or an afflicted Neptune (if one is not careful) it can lead to depression, debauchery, addiction and even jail or imprisonment. Do you know someone with depression or are you feeling depressed? If you notice in the news, there is a lot of mental illness, a lot of chemical consumption and an inability to cope. Even worse at this writing, there is a super hard aspect 'Saturn square Neptune' that throws dirt on clear water and turns it to mud. The imagination is having a hard time processing, causing one to feel down in the dumps. This aspect alone can make a person feel 'crazy'. This hard aspect brings about fears buried in the subconscious mind and the result is anxieties, phobias, neurosis and then heightened fears. It's tough on the public or the global impact, much less those who have this in their natal chart. With 'Saturn square Neptune' right now, we are having to swim with goggles on because our field of vision is clouded with debris.

We are also in a middle of the 16 year transit of Pluto in Capricorn, which I have been touching on quite a lot in social media. You can read about Pluto in Capricorn in your Generational Horoscope, because this transit affects an entire generation of people lasting 16 years. That's why you won't see Pluto in Capricorn in the daily horoscope, weekly horoscope, monthly horoscope or yearly horoscope . . it's GENERATIONAL! This transit began in 2008 and it will end in 2024. Right now at 2016 we are at the halfway point. We are nearing the height of the bell-shaped curve. Pluto in Capricorn is the transit that brings down authority figures and teaches them a lesson. This includes father figures, fathers/dads, governments, those in charge, those in power, regimes, administrations, boards, cabinets and parliaments. Pluto in Capricorn (read the Generational Horoscope) puts people in the streets with their fists in the air and rioting. That is the nature of Pluto to destroy and then rebuild so that full blown transformation takes place. Administations, governments, cabinets and boards cannot be rebuilt unless they are destroyed. Pluto in Capricorn not only represents people who are dark in skin color, but those who are dark in spirit. This does not mean that those who are dark in skin color are dark in spirit. After all, I am Native American (Cherokee) and I am pretty dang dark-skinned, which does not mean I have a dark spirit because my skin is dark. Just watch, Native American's will also have their time of pumping their fist in the air during the Pluto in Capricorn transit. Capricorn rules 'the skin' and it also rules colors that are dark. Pluto in Capricorn is showing us all dark skinned people and dark in spirit people. I wrote your Pluto in Capricorn Generational Horoscope back in 2008 and said these things. Read it!

Pluto in Capricorn from 2008 until 2024.  Read more in your Generational Horoscope!

Lastly, we are also in the midst of the Saturn in Sagittarius, wherein Saturn puts the squeeze on all things Sagittarius in order to make it right or get it righted (straightened-up). Saturn is serious and I mean it is sobering serious. Saturn has a belt around it and has no problem taking its belt off to smack you across the ass or across the face in order to sober you up. "Snap out of it!" as Loretta Castorini said to Ronny Cammareri in the movie, 'Moonstruck" when she slapped him across the face. Saturn seeks to limit, restrict, shush, lock down, ground and conserve. Saturn is strict, it is the conservative and the responsible planet. Saturn seeks to achieve longevity and stability. Saturn is in it for the long haul. Sagittarius rules foreigners, foreign places and foreign languages. Sagittarius also rules religion, religious organizations and their affiliations. So you see, Saturn in Sagittarius has a strict moral code, which will continue to restrict our philosophical and religious because through December 2017.

Now see I find this interesting that Saturn in Sagittarius is present until the end of 2017. The reason being is that 2016 is the halfway year of the Pluto in Capricorn transit (2008 to 2024). This means the height of the bell-shaped curve would be 2016 sandwiched between the year 2015 and 2017. So if the height of this energy is 2016, which another year of heightened energy one year after is through 2017, then that would be through the end of Saturn in Sagittarius. Of course there is the possibility that this does get a lot more strict after 2017 because Saturn in Sagittarius will then move into Capricorn, where Saturn is Capricorn's natural ruling planet. Saturn in Capricorn happens to be the authoritarian, over-achiever, workaholic and ambitious ladder climber.

Saturn in Capricorn is serious and to say it has a strong work-ethic would be an understatement. I have a Capricorn Moon, so work is what I do (and clean). HA! Saturn in Capricorn is family pride, honor, distinction and respect in the community. Life is serious, it is orderly, it is militarized and it receives orders well. What I really really really like about Saturn in Capricorn is if there is family disgrace, childhood poverty and the psychological foundation (childhood) has been tainted, Saturn in Capricorn will give the individual the drive and ambition to overcome it. While we head toward Saturn in Capricorn in December 2017, the South Node in Pisces will fall away taking with it the pathetic and sensitive drama.

Right now the North Node Virgo wants us to put our focus on it because the North Node is where your cup runneth over. No matter what happens, if you focus on the North Node, you cannot fail and you will succeed. The North Node in Virgo asks us to get more involved with each other through being in-service to one another and volunteering. If we won't do that, then perhaps a storm system would help push us in that direction. Maybe a tornado, flood, volcano, tornado, tsunami or hurricane will help us to remember to help others. Pluto in Capricorn will continue to shake the earth and rattle our bones in order to press us into service. By the way, Capricorn rules the bones, skin and teeth.

If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else.   ~Booker T. Washington

The North Node Virgo wants us to take care of our health, those in our daily life and develop those daily regimens that help us live rightly. Virgo rules daily regimens and rituals that are different from Pisces spiritual rituals. We are in a state of needing to either put up or shut up. We see on Facebook all the time how many prayers are being sent . . but are they? Put up or shut up. The North Node Virgo requires that you develop daily regimens that are physical related actions. Pisces is the invisible plane, while Virgo is the visible plane. By the way, this website has a massive load of prayers, saints, angels, novena's and affirmations. This is a very South Node Pisces area of my site, but if you notice in my writings there is a requirement of action on your part, which is North Node Virgo. My South Node Pisces/North Node Virgo requires me, to require you, to make it happen. Don't just say you are going to pray . . . PRAY!!!!! The North Node Virgo is not lip service, it is literally being in-service to others and actually showing up. Another interesting note is that the word 'tolerance' is a Virgo word simply because of Virgo's tendency toward perfectionism and mastery. Virgo is the sign that needs to learn tolerance, which is probably why globally we have been given the present North Node Virgo.

So back to the beginning . . people are either going mad (crazy) or they are going mad (angry), which is very South Node Pisces (mad crazy) and very Pluto in Capricorn (mad angry). It's one or the other. We can all barely say a word without hurting each others feelings or pissing each other off. The supposed tolerant people have become intolerant to those who do not agree. One's level of sensitivity for another individual's position may just be too high depending on their life story. We are all being pressed to find our coping mechanism and put it into practice (North Node Virgo energy). I know when I get pissed off at my Scorpion King, I clean the house like nobody's business. That's my coping mechanism. Virgo is a clean freak and I'm definitely that! The last thing I would do is step into my South Node and get drunk and ignorant. That would be weak. My ego is a bit too big for that, but that's just me. All I'm saying folks is you need to find your coping mechanism because this world-wide energy is going to get a lot worse before it gets better and as I've been saying for years, "You ain't seen nothin' yet."

Dr. Standley's Astrology Brain Dump

[Posted Tuesday, July 26, 2016]

I CAN SEE RUSSIA FROM MY HOUSE!

The information I wrote in my last Brain Dump™ on July 23, 2016 called, "A World Gone Mad (Crazy) and Mad (Angry) stimulated a question on my Facebook fan page that deserves an entire write-up. Thank you to my Facebook friend 'Linda Rose' for asking about Saturn square Neptune and how long it will last.

Saturn square Neptune is a really tough aspect that messes with us by throwing dirt into our eyes up and messing with our field of vision. We see things that aren't there or make up things in our imagination. If you wear glasses or contacts then you know what it's like when your glasses are dirty or when your contacts need to be rinsed off. Have you ever cried in your contacts and then they are all cloudy and blurry? That is what Saturn square Neptune looks like. Sometimes dirt thrown in our eyes can have bits of wood, sand or dust that is irritating and hurts. Saturn square Neptune can also appear in a form where we see something that actually hurts us (like our heart). This is because Neptune is the higher octave of Venus, the planet of relationships and money. So yeah, this square can hurt both romantically and financially. If you are not in a relationship right now, then don't press it. For Goodness sake you don't want to get something going when what you really need is a clean pair of goggles. Saturn is an earth sign that rules lack and limitations, while Neptune rules the Ocean and has 360 degree field of vision. Think of the fish who have an eyeball on both sides of its head. It has a 180 degree field of vision on one side being able to see from nose to tail, and a 180 degree field of vision on the other side being able to see from nose to tail. 180 + 180 = 360 degree view. This is why Pisces is the visionary of the zodiac and why they make the best CEO's. It's not the intelligence, it's the VISION! You can be the smartest person in the room, but if you don't have vision, what does it matter?

Saturn in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces

Saturn square Neptune is tough enough on its own, much less have something else contribute to depression and oppression, but alas, one of the biggest siphons in the cosmos is sucking Neptune's energy right out of the sky and that is the South Node in Pisces. Go ahead and drop an F-bomb right here! I get it! At this writing, if you look at today's Daily Astrology Chart Wheel - July 26, 2016 you will see that Neptune is only 02 degrees away from the South Node thereby making their connection, conjunct. A conjunction is when two or more planets are in the same degree and same sign intensifying the energies of each other. Let's remember that the South Node is the drain, bottomless pit and hole in the chart. Anything that you put into the South Node falls right through because there is no plug. Now let's put Neptune right up against it. Do you hear that massive suctioning sound like water being sucked down the drain. That's exactly what it is like. This energy is loud and makes its presence known. This energy is irritating because its a constant suctioning that shows up around us. Go ahead, F-bomb again. I always say, "RATS" to keep me from F-bombing (so much).

The North Node in Virgo and the South Node in Pisces

Now keep in mind that Neptune is Retrograde and the Nodes (the North Node and South Node) are always Retrograde. That means Neptune and the South Node will eventually catch up to each other and become exact in degrees. Their exactness will be from November 14, 2016 until November 22, 2016 when they are both at 09 degrees. (Insert louder suctioning noise here!) Neptune and the South Node will continue to dance very close together, rubbing all up on each other, until the beginning of the year 2017. Around the end of January 2017 will they finally be enough distance apart that they won't be trying to create relationship or financial drama.

As I stated in my previous Brain Dump™ on July 23, 2016 we are in the midst of the North Node in Virgo and the South Node in Pisces, which will last until May 9, 2017, which draws out mental health issues (Pisces) and puts the focus on physical day-to-day regimens that would promote good day-to-day living and physical health (Virgo). Pisces is the sign that rules people who have gone mad (crazy) or those who are depressed, either clinically depressed, spiritually bankrupt or emotionally corrupt. Pisces rules mental health, institutions, depression, skeletons in the closet, drunks, drunkardness, jails, prisons, one's downfall, secret enemies, distress, informers, cheating, those who are strange or crazy, drugs, alcohol, deceit, delusions, confinement, poverty and slavery. Pisces is also that compassionate sign that is empathetic and sympathetic to the plights of others. Pisces is over-the-top benevolent and tends to rescue those who are have run into misfortune or those who are unfortunate. Pisces cannot stand to see someone in pain physically, spiritually or emotionally. Pisces is the silent-sufferer. The South Node currently in Pisces rules depression, those who strange, those who have an inability to cope, which makes one turn to drugs or alcohol, or become consumed by one of the other strong aspects that is ever present and dangerous.

FEAR - Face Everything And Rise!

Now let's jump back to Saturn square Neptune, it began its 'applying degrees' on Thursday, March 24, 2016. Applying degrees means it was approaching exact degrees. This is when you feel the prodrome or early symptom of the energy involved. Saturn square Neptune became exact on Friday, June 17, 2016. This means from March 24, 2016 up until June 17, 2016 Neptune square Saturn was within striking distance of having an impact on us (even though it was not exact) and we would have been feeling its affects. The closer it came to June 17, 2016 the tighter the degrees were coming together to be exactly the same. Four days earlier on Monday, June 13, 2016 Neptune turned Retrograde (Rx) as Saturn was already Rx. Saturn had been sitting on its thumbs for a while at 12 degrees... then the new Rx action of Neptune caught up to it...and so on June 17, 2016 they became exact in the same degree and the exact same minute. Okay, technically speaking both planets were at 12 degrees beginning on June 5, 2016 but they were not in the exact minute until June 17, 2016. Technicalities! After June 17, 2017 Saturn was moving faster than Neptune even though both were Rx....so right now they are dancing within 01 degree of each other. On Saturday, September 10, 2017 they will be exact again at 10 degrees 24 minutes, although this time Saturn will be Direct (on August 13, 2016) and Neptune will still be Retrograde (Rx). So you see, Saturn square Neptune will continue to affect each other for quite a while after their 2nd exactness on September 10, 2017. As they begin to pull apart (separating)....they will still remain close enough and within the orb of influence to impact each other up until Halloween, October 31, 2016.

Be brave and Rise!

So while Saturn square Neptune will remain a very tough square for us to get through up until October 31, 2016, we will still deal with Neptune conjunct the South Node until the beginning of the year 2017. Around the end of January 2017 will they finally be enough distance apart that they won't be trying to create relationship or financial drama.

Now listen my little mentators, do not get all wigged out and fearful with this energy. Neptune naturally rules Pisces and the South Node is in Pisces and Pisces is the most dramatic and fearful sign of the zodiac. Man oh' man, when a fish hears a pebble on the water it will flip its tail and hightail it in another direction. You cannot let fear grip you because of this energy. Heck, I have a South Node Pisces but I can't let this energy get me. I have to swim through it. I have to get up every single day and feed the children (meaning you). I can't allow myself to go crazy and lose my wits. I cannot allow this energy to take over my mind and make me fearful.

Oh hell no. I have Mars in Leo, I'll eat that fish!!! Stay Astrologized™.
