Dear Deirdre,
Since Uranus went into my sign in 2003 I cannot tell you of the massive overhaul that has taken place in all facets of my life, not to mention recently with transiting Pluto sextiling my natal Pluto and effecting my whole chart.

Constant revision of my ideals and beliefs and relentless desire to evolve, have given me a thirst for knowledge and understanding the nature of things, particularly through a better understanding of astrology, which I am teaching myself.

This year feels like a pretty potent one. I recently put a halt on what had been my intention to study. Now I love having all this free time on my hands, and am hugely excited at all this freedom, but a little irked at where I'm headed next.

I am a musician and writer and I know I have something to communicate to people in this lifetime. I've always been very passionate about social and political issues. I've been paid to write articles for youth on relevant issues in the past. Always been a bit of a political dissenter, I am passionate about bringing about a better way of living for humanity. I know there is a better way for us to be. My whole life I've strived to understand more about life so that I can articulate what I think is wrong with its systems, the attitudes we have and the limits we put on ourselves... ...and I think what is irking me is not knowing where I'm supposed to fit in right now - definitely career wise, and in general.

Sorry to harp on, but I would love to get some expert feedback from your fine self if you got the time. I'd really appreciate it : )


My response:
Dear Cam,
I can imagine you are sizzling with energy about where you fit in. Sometimes, when people have all of their personal planets in the lower part of their charts, they wonder, where do I fit in? Having a very active inner world can make the outer world seem like an unknown, even if it is not.

If we look at your chart and ask, where are you "supposed to fit in" my impression is you are asking how to integrate the  lower half of your chart with the upper part of your chart, as well as integrate the elements water and fire.

My impression is your personal world is like a stove, cooking personal creative ideas. Your outer world is where your creative works is reflected as your 10th house ruler is the Moon which is in Aries, a very individual impulsive sign, like a spark plug which starts the engine. Aries is Fire.

What is also important in your chart is that your Moon is in a stellium in Aries with Vesta, Pholus, Mars, Eris, and Venus. This is incredibly active energy. With Mars here you may feel like you want to go into overdrive, but with Pholus combined there is some caution to bring awareness everyday to the material you send out in the world because you can have a big and fast effect. With awareness you create the effect you want. What you do is interesting because as a Pisces, you are a water sign, but with so much fire you are in a constant state of dynamic equilibrium, trying to keep yourself at room temperature, so that you don't dissipate as steam, but always cooking. An image is boiling water, or steam power and a lot of it.

We are currently in Aries season. This is the time when the Sun is passing by your stellium. Every year, for the first two weeks in April, the Sun passes your natal Vesta, Pholus, Mars, Eris, and Venus. What are your memories of previous Aprils from previous years? This will give you a good idea of where your steam power comes from. Eric Francis wrote another article on Eris, which may be interesting to you. You can read his introduction to the article, and read the rest through the longer article which is part of the Planet Waves Subscription T'is the season to learn and live your chart especially every year from April 1 through April 15.

When you ask where you fit in, with so much activity in Aries, I say, you fit in your body. Your body is the housing for the steam engine driving creative work, and the creative work is at home in the world. When you take care of your body this is like keeping the temperature somewhere below 212

Dear Emma,

You are very welcome. I tuned in really deeply and thought very very hard! You inspired me! Your 10th house pursuits sound FANTASTIC! I am very excited for you. Please keep me updated, I love hearing how Life unfolds, and curves and turns.

Yours sincerely,

Deirdre Hi
I Just wanted to start by saying a huge thanks for taking the time to, go over my chart and, address my question.

You managed to cover all my anxieties at once really. I'm so happy that you addressed it in a sensitive manner. Other people I have spoken to made this transit sound a horror story. Amazingly the fourth house in my case is represented by my father, this should be an interesting time.
I am currently trying to work alongside Saturn. however, I recognise that I need to establish the ground work first. So, I have made some decisions. I have decided to volunteer with an organization I admire a couple of days per week. I start training in April &, return to study in September to complete a diploma in Hypnotherapy and counselling. Maybe this is the responsibility you spoke of. I would also like to start up a help group alongside as well. I will take this seriously too if i can make it happen.
If it's ok, I'll keep you updated on my progress.
Thanks again

I just wanted to ask you about the Saturn - Uranus opposition happening for me in 2009.
Maybe you could take a look. It seems pretty significant.
Thanks, Emma

My response:
Dear Emma,
I see what you mean about this opposition and how it is moving toward aligning with your modern chart ruler, Pluto, conjunct your natal Moon at 28

Hi Deirdre,
I am nervous about making a job change even though I don't like my current job because I don't get along with my boss. I have an interview this week where I think would be a better team for me to work with. I know the CEO (to whom I'd report) from a previous career and she and I can connect far better than my current boss. Plus, she hires people from different cultures to ensure diversity and tolerance and I admire that about her.

I'm very nervous about changing jobs. I'm afraid I'd be making a mistake. I feel supported and confident in either case, but my current boss takes a lot of my energy with games and lies.

I'm also nervous about the new position taking time away from some other ventures I'm into like building a farm with my husband, writing a book of poetry, and revisiting my creative self that I abandoned to be more "practical" about my career. But, in fact, I think the current boss wastes so much of my precious energy with his horrific management style, that I'm pretty sure I'll do just fine.

I'm interested in any perspective you can add based on my chart.

K Pisces

My Response:
Dear K Pisces,
I imagine you have put in a lot of hard work at your soon-to-be old job and you are ready for a burst of new energy, new life and a new team, so go for it. You were born with the Sun conjunct Saturn

Dear Deirdre,
How do I know what I need?
Will I have to give up something to get it?
L from Boston

My Response:
Dear L from Boston,
Before I looked at your chart, I thought about what planet I would look at and I decided on the Moon. Your question felt to me like an emotional one and the Moon has a lot to say about needs, especially emotional ones. So a Moon can show what you need, or what feels comfortable, but your question is more about How do you know what you need, and that gets into self awareness. It is nice to get answers, like concrete answers to a question like this, so I thought what is there in the world which will be the sign posts along the path and I think in your case this is your visual art.

So when I opened your chart and saw Moon in the placement of fun and creativity, and in a strong and bold earth sign, this verified to me the value for you of seeing your own artwork in your hands. It is similar to earning money and having gold coins in your apron pocket, but more personal.

In your chart your Moon is on one hand so rock solid and fun and reliable and on the other hand completely etherial and not of this world. This is Moon in opposition to Neptune. It's a little like that question what is heavier, a pound of feathers or a pound of peat moss. This is the image I get for your creative and emotional process, that you are able to take a pound of feathers (or a pound of happiness, sadness, fear and using alchemy convert this into an object) Now that's magic! But how does it happen and do you need it and How do you know what you need?

My impression is you need safety to be the creative person you are (Moon in the 5th) but keep your creative process personal, contained and private. It seems that your creative experience is very spiritual and admirably fragile (Moon opposed Neptune), and plays a crucial role in your self esteem (Uranus opposed Chiron, Neptune being Chiron's dispositor). Therefore, the way you make creative decisions is most likely one of your greatest treasures so this I would guard with my life.

I would experiment with letting your work be in the public light, while keeping your self more removed. This may look like your work is at an exposition and you are not, while you are at your home with a few safe and treasured colleagues. With the North Node in Aries on the nadir it may be that being in public draws you away from nesting.

I would concentrate on creating a salon kind of room at home where a hand select few approved loving friends are invited. I would make sure to hang mirrors where you can see yourself from your favorite chair. Ideally in the summer I would meet in a circle around a fire.

But most importantly I would give up on, re-route or at least bring some awareness to the role perfectionism plays in your identity. In short I would honor privacy and toss perfectionism. this will give you the quiet to know what you need. I can see options in what a chart may suggest, but you are the person with heart and blood and I think quiet and privacy is the ticket to the environment to know how you know what you will need.

Dear Deirdre,
Our daughter is traveling abroad to Texas next year and we are all wondering how this will be. Please tell us what the stars have to say about the coming year for her.

Dear Worried German Parents,
Rest assured: your daughter is born with luck on her side (North Node in Sagittarius trining Midheaven). Part of what she can embrace in her lifetime is that she doesn

A reader writes in: I have been trying to study astrology for the past 3 years and I find discrepancies between planet interpretations and my experience with life.  I have gone through much in my life and I feel the Chiron placement in the 4th house of my chart is very accurate. My father most definitely is depicted for the lower half of my chart.

What I can't seem to figure is the top half and all that I read doesn't seem to fit either. Can the 10th house mean something else besides politics, power and career? The first two I care nothing for and as to the last my career is that of a perennial grower.

At the very bottom of all my struggles in life has been my feelings of insecurity. Shame of my very being left me emotionally stunted coloring all aspects of my life. Shame was the very essence, filter through which all my experiences were perceived.

It is only the heart that can know and is able to conceive that we are Valuable beyond measure and this truth known within dispels the lie. I would love to do something to help make known this real beauty that we have. Can you tell me what you think?

A reader writes in:
Despite my  belief that the universe does not mean for any of us to struggle, I feel I've been precisely struggling for a couple of years at least. Last year I read that with Jupiter in my 10th house my career was in the spotlight, yet it proved a very difficult year indeed.

I do some freelance work and found my day rates being cut [I largely work for charities] and I've also just been made redundant from my part time job [the 4th  time since I've had children!] Is the universe telling me to do something else?

I do need to work as I am a lone parent to a 12 and 13 year old [I have been on my own for 8 years]. At the same time, I'm pulled. Do I just need to 'release the need' to work and trust in the universe?

I would be very grateful indeed for any insights. Have I lessons to learn? What's on my horizon? With my children older now, I have decided to be more sociable and also put some energy into finding a fabulous relationship too! What is the universe telling me?

A Libra writes in with birth details and asks:

My Response:
Dear Libran,
So far, with the kind of astrology I do, I have never seen the initials of anyone, but that would be interesting and fun for sure. What I do see in the solar chart I set up for you is that you may enjoy having an unconventional kind of family life, where kids and grown-ups are both treated with respect, that family meals and gatherings may feature heated and intellectual discussion and that the type of spirituality you practice may be recorded in someone's files as rebellious.

As a Libra with North Node in Aries my sense is you you will learn very much in your life from partnership, which could earn you recognition should you choose to write about this. Cheers to your journey!
