Dear Friends of Turn To The Stars,
We are down here in Mount Dora, FL and are pondering the arrival of Hurricane Irma. Below is a chart I created for tomorrow Saturday September 9, 2017 at 5 p.m. The meteorologists are predicting this as the time that everyone should be safely tucked away in a shelter. So, I thought I’d take a look at the chart for this time.
This evening we are already receiving heavy rains, a precursor to the arrival of Irma. First I want to talk about the meaning behind the name Irma. In Latin and American, the name means “noble”. In German, it means “war goddess”.
When I think of war, I look to Mars in this chart. Mars is in the constellation of Virgo trining the Moon in Taurus. Mars is in the 7th house of this chart indicating that many people are active in relating to the needs and are responding with care to others. Communications are open and there is an earthly response to need. Virgo is concerned with the health and well being, and it appears there is a genuine physical response evident at this time.
The main concern I see is the Sun in Virgo in the 8th house. I look to the Sun to unveil where the chart is lit up. The Sun shows the health and vitality of the chart and/or the designator of the chart, which is the storm. The Sun is in a challenging aspect to Saturn in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces. This indicates stress and challenges to overcome. There is a bright light shown here surrounding the health and well being of anyone going through major changes and recovery will be difficult at this time. The Sun in Virgo squares Saturn in Sagittarius in the 11th house. This is a strong mutable square and indicates anxiety, fear, and a challenge to stay positive with the level of work associated with community efforts. The responsibility here is incredible, testing us to believe that all will be well. I’m happy to see Saturn in Sagittarius trining Venus and the North Node in Leo. This tells me that there are many courageous people who will be responding in our communities and promises that we will make it through this storm with much less struggle than we thought. Of course, I’m reading the chart for Mount Dora, FL, so this is based upon the longitude and latitude of my location. The Sun in Virgo in the 8th house is in a separating opposition to Neptune in Pisces.This tells me that the strength of this storm is weakening. However, highlighted is the 2nd and 8th houses, which indicates a lot of financial loss. Neptune is lots water and emotion. However, eventually Neptune’s energy clears the slate for resolve. The Sun in the 8th house brings to the table a focus on insurance companies. There’s not too much we can do about an opposition except roll with what’s been dealt to us. I also see the Sun in Virgo trining Pluto in Capricorn. This is a major league, transformative experience and will change the structural design of many people’s lives. The Sun in the 8th house indicates that this is a major time of metamorphosis.
I love seeing the beautiful fire trines in this chart. It tells me that many are gathering together and that’s a beautiful thing. I’ve heard of many people having Hurricane Parties. The Moon in Taurus is in trine to Mars in Virgo, lending us energy so that we can slow down to smell the roses and enjoy time spent together.
When I recorded the Full Moon in Pisces YouTube show last week, I spoke about the incredible stress that was being ushered in by the full moon in Pisces conjunct Neptune in Pisces. Neptune’s energy was highlighted by the full light of the full moon and it was surely testing us all to stay out of fear and judgement and to focus on hope. My original intuition was that this storm would weaken by the time it reached us here in beautiful Mount Dora. The chart below indicates the same.
In conclusion of this blog… I wish you all safe passage through the storm. It’s our first hurricane while living here in Florida and I felt the need to share some insight into the cosmic influences. Below is the chart I created to provide insight into the storm.
