Of course it is difficult to see how the lottery that is the death penalty cannot be considered unusual if you win , and lethal injection is obviously cruel — particularly if you gag for 12 minutes while the drugs take hold. Our resident civil rights lawyer Steve Bergstein, a Planet Waves editor and my collaborator for many years, has written a comment about this development in his Psychsound blog. In any event, for the second time in recent memory, there was a major historic turning point in the capital punishment issue the exact day of a Sun-Mercury conjunction.
On one occasion, many people were spared; on another, many were condemned to die. This is evidence of both the amorality of astrology, and the unpredictability factor. OK back…an interesting discussion of what it means to be blossoming in a time when the prevailing social message is shut down. So, Venus trine Ixion.
All these newer planets present a challenge of interpretation. There are very few discussions; from what I have seen during 12 years of traveling the world, the astrology circuit, the Internet and writing in the industry, astrologers are extremely shy about new discoveries, and they are easily overwhelmed. I have found my readers to be considerably more curious, intuitive and insightful than most astrologers, by the way.
Here is my best delineation of Ixion , from Planet Wiki. Skipping, again, the myth; here is some of my interpretation of this point:. On the surface, we have someone who seems to lack all moral fabric, any integrity whatsoever; he kills a person; he betrays his friend; he plots a rape of the most powerful goddess, the revered Hera. Deeper down, he says take heed: anyone is capable of anything. This is a commentary on human potential. Ixion points to the common thread among all forms of violence, physical or emotional. Ixion is the pattern or psychological construction which says we cannot change our inherent nature no matter what the consequences or punishment.
It is a kind of mental affliction that needs to be addressed on that level.
Currently, Ixion is sitting on the Great Attractor. On one level, this is emblematic of the amoral times in which we are living: it has never been more abundantly clear that you can get away with whatever you can get away with. In many respects we have the Bush administration to thank for this.
Ixion was opposite Saturn in sidereal Taurus at the time of discovery, with the Sun approaching Saturn. Saturn was conjoining Mirfak of Perseus and the stars forming the leg and foot of Perseus. This was the time of the midpoint of the Saturn-Ixion synodic cycle, which began in October of This was a compounded synod with Quaoar, with the three nesting in the karmic claws of the Scorpion, between Zubenelgenubi and Zubeneschamali, the former marking Saturn's exalted location in the ecliptic.
The placement of this synod emphasizes "karmic responsibility" with the mid-point bringing this theme to its climax of vision and realization about the nature of the cycle. As a recently discovered planet, Ixion's astrological role is somewhat exploratory. In addition, although we can project back in time, we are only consciously aware of Ixion's passage through sidereal Scorpio, not to enter sidereal Sagittarius until late , along with its Saturn conjunction, which occurs throughout all of in the last few degrees of sidereal Scorpio.
The Saturn-Ixion synod occuring in over the sting of the Scorpion marks the completion of the year Saturn-Ixion synodic cycle that began in , and of course, it marks the start of the next Saturn-Ixion cycle. Ixion brings emphasis to the exposure for misdeeds driven from personal gratification or carnal lust at the cost of others wellbeing, and for disrespect or betrayal of others, especially for deceptively taking advantage of a host or benefactor.
Ixion impels us to take responsibility for our life scenarios rather than perpetuating entrapment on the karmic wheel as if victim to a self-created history of deception. Ixion also seems to exemplify people in authoritarian positions being brought to justice for tyrannical deeds involving the suppression and manipulation of people, especially women, as well as the destruction of people for one's own end. Ixion may also be prominent in malicious and deceptive power-plays between authoritarian figureheads, drawn out in long karmic-based scenarios.
Bush Senior and Sadam Husain is an example.
I see this theme in what I suspect was a karmic scenario that had to play out between the U. It should be noted however that Ixion conjoined Pluto at the time , and Saturn and Ixion along with Quaoar began their synodic cycle in in the karmic claws of the Scorpion, thus being 10 years into the Saturn-Ixion cycle mentioned above and emphasizing not only the Saturn-Ixion theme of karmic responsibility, but also the ending Pluto-Ixion of a tyrannical figurehead and of the karmic scenario.
More research about Ixion's role in their charts may be insightful should anyone be motivated. Ixion may include issues of trust and betrayal, where miss-deeds are forgiven, but which occur again, perhaps in vicious cycle, much like a woman who forgives an abusive husband only to be abused again the following day. It may also express as lust and desire for wealth and power, or draw situations involving wealth and power where one must confront issues of morality.
Ixion in the natal astrological chart may indicate were we must own up for our own deeds. Ixion may bring attention to any internal conflict regarding the nature of our actions and if they reflect the type of person we really want to be, thus raising issues about self-deception or how we may be in denial. Ixion may raise issues about our morals, if we are presenting one persona to the world while our less-than ideal actions are demonstrating something else entirely, something other than what we know we should ideally demonstrate.
An exploration of the Astronomy and Astrology of Ixion - The Tyrant. not to enter sidereal Sagittarius until late , along with its Saturn. 5D Astrology to – bring your Birth Chart into the 21st century – Agent 98 (Lorna Adding Ixion to the rest of the mid-Sagittarius alignment, including Pholus and.
Ixion may be related to where or how we may compromise our morals for personal gratification, or draw experience where we may be tempted to do so, and how we must deal with the karmic ramifications of doing so. Keep in mind, Ixion's role is just beginning to be explored in the astrological community. Myth and astrological placements at the time of discovery only lend insight into the true nature of a newly discovered planet or asteroid.
Only time-tested research will refine Ixion's true astrological influence. Ixion, like Pluto, has a mean-motion resonance with Neptune, which means that for every two orbits that Ixion makes, Neptune makes three orbits. This also means that Ixion and Pluto have the same orbital resonance , meaning they both orbit one time between their synods. The Neptune-Ixion synodic cycle is about years.
The last cycle began in in sidereal Virgo. I added this section due to a question I received asking if Ixion crosses inside Neptune's orbit. One astronomical unit AU is the mean distance between the Earth and our Sun, approximately 93 million miles million km.
Ixion's "apparent entry into Neptune's orbit" is fitting to an Ixion-Neptune trait of creating "deceptive appearances. Ixion appears to cross into Neptune's orbit around CE and appears to leave in about CE, but only when looking down upon the solar system.
However, Ixion is actually still further from the Sun then Neptune's orbital distance during this time, at about 34 AU in This is due to Ixion's high Ixion reaches its perihelion closest distance to the Sun in at about 30 AU. This is the only time it creates an Ixion-Neptune orbital distance resonance. Its distance then increases from the Sun, although still appearing to be inside Neptune's orbit when looking down upon the solar system.
Ixion and Saturn conjoin throughout with three geocentric conjunctions occurring on February 15, June 6 while retrograde and October The Saturn-Ixion synod occurs on July 4, , which completes the Saturn-Ixion synodic cycle that began in and initiates the new year Saturn-Ixion synodic cycle, which continues through occurring in Aquarius. The synod lies in late sidereal Scorpio, close to the Sagittarius cusp shown in the above star chart. The retrogrades occur in the latter part of sidereal Scorpio, conjoining Ras Alhague, the head of Ophiuchus, and the leg of Ophiuchus which stands over the sting of the Scorpion and Ara, Altar of the Centaur.
Saturn and Ixion's conjunction brings emphasis to long-established karmic-based tyrannical authoritarian scenarios, generally involving people in strong leadership positions. At a soul level, the players in such scenarios are fulfilling underlying evolutionary energy currents that must be brought to resolution for humanity, despite what it may look like on the global stage of incarnate life.
The stellar energetic of the retrogrades, over the sting of the Scorpion, can express just as a scorpion's sting feels, as a smite attack, lashing out with intense emotional vengeance. However, for those on a path of self mastery and who are willing to delve within self to own their emotions and address their own personal issues rather than project them outward a main lesson of Scorpio , this area of the zodiak offers opportunity to choose a path of inner healing leading to metamorphic transformation.
This is to surrender lesser egoic self, to place it upon the pyre of the Centaur's altar Ara , upon which drips the venom of the Scorpion's sting the often harsh lessons of life as a transmutational elixir that acts as a catalyst for an inner metamorphosis. This is in preparation to awaken to a greater unified consciousness, reinstatement into a higher order resonance, which can then occur over the high altar, which extends from Alpha to Theta Ara in early Sagittarius and lies under Galactic Center.
Saturn and Ixion's synchronous retrogrades provide this opportunity throughout and this is also the underlying theme set for the new year Saturn-Ixion synodic cycle.
Saturn, after its final conjunction with Ixion at the end of October , will then fully enter sidereal Sagittarius in November Ixion will slowly follow, but Saturn will then move away from Ixion, also engaging the new year Saturn-Ixion cycle. Chiron also aspects as well throughout The Saturn-Ixion conjunction is one facet of the geometry formed by all of these planets. The Saturn-Ixion synthesis and its role in this overall planetary geometry became active and dominant at the start of , continuing throughout the year.
Eris, Haumea, Sedna and Ixion continue their aspects throughout , and Haumea, Sedna and Ixion continue their aspects through The Saturn-Ixion synthesis over the sting of the Scorpion can express as harsh lashing out of long-established authoritarian tyranny.
You find the similarities and form an at least digestible belief system if not the ideal one. This wine was sacred to all centaurs and was only to be opened for ceremonial purposes. The Centaur teaches how to graduate from the karmic clutches of naivete, from falling prey as victims to the entrapping forces around us which perpetuate our karmic dilemmas. Nessus creates it synod with Quaoar in February , this occurs quite close to the head of the Scorpion, within a degree of and principally conjoining Dschuba; Yed Prior and Yed Posterior, the hand of Ophiuchus holding the Serpent, also called the hand of Death, which resides over Dschuba; and south is Acrab of the Scorpion; and Alpha Circini, the compass at the foot of the Centaur. Shame also contributes to the tendency of that pain to bury itself in deep, fueling reactions we have a hard time identifying with the original wound and need for forgiveness, since we do not see it. When you decide to make something, in awakens forgotten oceans from within you, choppy with excitement as it laps the shores of your mind.
There is also opportunity for transformation of exploitative tyrannical Ixion-like established patterns, although Saturn, as a constricting and consolidating force, does not particularly support change, yet at the same time demands taking responsibility for these Ixion-like behavioral patterns.
Yods create a resonance that impels the application of two energetics to create a solution in a third area of life. This can be somewhat paradoxical for a few reasons, but this Yod is even more exemplary of this paradox. Saturn and Ixion have been in a synchronous retrograde, tightly conjoined, over the sting of the Scorpion, which in part, incites long-established patriarchal tyrannical forces to demonstrably intensify in the world, whether as authoritarian-type people or authoritarian bureaucratic systems and establishments.
Saturn is restrictive, stoic and resistant to change. In contrast, the Haumea-Jupiter synthesis is exceptionally dynamic to mobilize a rebirth in consciousness aligned with a higher truth. It is exceptionally progressive, expansive and promotes growth and change. These two apparently conflicting energetics, as the base points of the Yod which are sextile , actually work in strength together, however in an oscillatory fashion due to Sedna's presence at their opposite mid-point to address and stimulate Sedna as the solution.
This means that the interactive dynamic of these two forces energetically support the re-emergence of the long-suppressed exiled feminine principle on Earth and to entice the emergence of the feminine force in the world, especially stimulating women to emerge as this driving force.
Paradoxically, the arousal of the Saturn-Ixion synthesis not only incites a vengeful exploitative expression of tyrannical forces upon the global stage, but underlying this externalized dramatic is an intense karmic responsibility of those in positions of power in the world, that acts as a transmutational elixir mixed with the Jupiter-Haumea force to catalyze Sedna's reawakening and reemergence.
Despite what it may look like upon the global stage, those exemplifying the Saturn-Ixion tyrannical theme, at this time, whether they know it or not, are the catalytic force to spur the re-emergence of the feminine principle on Earth. This is Saturn-Ixion karmic retribution occuring upon the altar of the Centaur.
Chiron, Sedna and Jupiter-Haumea create another Yod, thus we have two interlocking Yods working together. Chiron impels an inner healing journey, to get in touch with, face and heal our wounds to establish a deeper level of wholeness and an expression of our unique full potential. This impels a process of unconditionally embracing our wounds with the willingness to feel any emotion attached to those wounds rather then defending why we are wounded with judgmental mind.
Defending why we are hurt, unhealthy or wounded results in nothing more than further suppressing those unhealthy cellular patterns, creating more chronic conditions, often leading us to seek quick band-aid fixes or temporary feel-good patterns of behavior that merely mask and suppress the symptoms.
This is an extremely important point regarding Sedna and the means to the reemergence of the feminine principle, as well as for the these two forces to ally in strength, and to effectively be applied to the rebirth or remake of human consciousness Jupiter-Haumea exemplifies. This applies to both male and females, and healing in general, but is also especially important for females to embody and demonstrate this understanding to truly reclaim their empowerment personally, as well as to reestablish the true exalted feminine force in the world. Chiron emphasizes consciousness development that brings forth our unique attributes that may have been suppressed or squelched by societal conformities.
Chiron impels us to honor our uniqueness.
