Part One of Four on Intercepted Signs

The Law of Attraction says that like attracts like. Basically, we get what we vibrate, and astrology can help us understand exactly what it is we are vibrating. That's what's authentic and what's not. The astrological map is a very cool look into the depths of a person, a way to 'know thyself', especially when it comes to intercepted signs.

For everyone studying this symbol system, you may have come across the term, 'intercepted signs'. I've been getting emails asking to explain this phenomenon in more detail. Here we go!

First thing to know

The astrological chart is a map of the planets, sun and moon as seen from earth at the moment you were born. It consists primarily of PLANETS representing an inherent energy, the SIGNS indicates how the energy most naturally expresses, the HOUSES or  environments where the energy is most at home expressing and the ASPECTS, the angular relationship between the planets.

Think of it as if the planets are the actors, the signs their costumes, the houses, the sets and the aspects the scripts. When it comes to intercepted signs, we are looking at hidden sets or stages and costumes we didn’t know we had! Here are some helpful definitions.

Intercepted Signs

A sign that is completely contained within a house and does not appear on either cusp. See image for reference.

Planets in Intercepted Signs

A planet that is intercepted within a house (it is in a sign that does not appear on either house cups.

Duplicated Signs

A sign that appears on two consecutive house cusps. (This is where a both house cusps fall within the same sign.)

House Systems

Note: The house system you use can alter both intercepted Signs/planets and Duplicated signs. The equal house system will never have interceptions or duplications. The further you are from the equator, the more you will encounter interceptions and duplications. Intercepted signs and duplicated signs always occur in pairs of opposites. This is an axis—what happens to one sign will always correspond identically to its opposite.

Resources

You'll find as you study that interpretations in textbooks vary. I learned my approach from Joanne Wickenburg and find her view most helpful for those trying to understand what this means for them and what they attract in their lives.

A Room within a Room

Think of the intercepted sign as a "room within a room". You enter the house (the stage or area of life) in a certain way only to discover there is a whole other experience there. For example, if you have Aquarius on the 7th house cusp (relationship to others) and Pisces intercepted within the 7th house, you may have an eccentric, unconventional and somewhat spacious approach to partnership (Aquarius)  until you really get into one. Then it is like discovering a whole new world where those intellectually defined Aquarian boundaries melt into a sea of divine longing (Pisces). Where did that come from?

That’s how it feels, like a foreign country…until you understand it.

I’ll post more detailed examples in part two. If anyone wants to put their hand up to use their chart, let me know in the comments.

Mystery Chart Example

Here is the chart of a mystery person. Let's see what we can glean about them looking at the interceptions alone.

goodvibeastrology intercepted signs

This mystery man (chart above) is a great example of the relationship between environment and intercepted signs/duplicated houses. It’s not so important to try and guess who he is (you will all recognize him soon enough) but better to play with how you think the interceptions weave into his life.

To approach this chart, look at the ways and means he might enter the houses where there are interceptions. What would that be like? What are his immediate needs as per sign on the cusp? Then, explore what might be discovered once in that house. What does the TARDIS look like, from the outside? From the inside? Image you are walking into that room with the theme of the sign on the cusp but you discover this closet (the intercepted sign) and as you explore it, a whole new world opens up.

And remember, the early environment may not have supported the needs of the intercepted sign, let alone living it out. What has to change? Check the duplicated signs for insights too!

Study Charts!

Work with this chart, and your own, asking the same questions. If you don’t have intercepted signs in your chart or an example from your own files, dive in and explore what others are posting. If you can link to your chart, all the better. This is, to me, a visual art. Let’s look at the horoscopes and let the symbols do their magic!

NOTE:  If you’re stumped in finding interceptions, remember there are 12 signs of the zodiac and 12 houses. If you see two houses in a row with the same sign, then somewhere in the circle, there are two signs that do NOT have a houses cusp of their own. Start with Aries and go counterclockwise around the wheel. Does each house cusp has a unique sign? If not, who is missing out.

Mystery Man Revealed

This might be controversial, but Arnold Schwarzenegger is a hero of mine. For a particular reason – his powers of taking an imagined vision and turning it into reality, even when there is absolutely no reason to ever believe it would be possible.arnold_schwarzenegger_a_bodybuilding_legend

However you feel about the man, he’s a great example of the ENVIRONMENTAL factors of an interception and how moving out of the limiting environment can open doors. You have to have the moxie to jump through them, and Arnold does.

History

Mr Schwarzenegger, Austrian-American actor, model, producer, director, activist, businessman, investor, writer, philanthropist, former professional bodybuilder, and politician started at ground zero. Minus zero. His father was a cop who hated him, favoring the older brother. He was abused and raised to believe he had no value. Under a severe and critical home live, there were no expectations that he would accomplish much of anything at all. Career wise, his mother hoped he would be lucky enough to be a tradesman/person.

Moving away from his 4th house home and 10th house social expectation was not easy, but as soon as he did, the impossible became a reality: Mr. Universe, opportunities in the state, Hollywood.

He was able to imagine (Pisces) and create in the face off all odds (Aries) like few people have ever done.

For example, after his first film tanked (his English was so bad it had to be dubbed), he was interviewed and the journalist said, “Now that Hollywood is a no go, what are your plans?”

He said, “I am going to be the number-one box-office star in all of Hollywood.”

The journalist laughed until he realized Arnold was serious. “How will you do that?” he asked.

Tapping the Intercepted Signs

“It’s the same process I used in bodybuilding,” Arnold explained. “What you do is create a vision of who you want to be, and then live into that picture as if it were already true.”

Can you see how the victimized Pisces MC morphed into a truly creative, audacious, Aries that then made him one of the most recognized men in his genre/field? Can you see how duplicated Leo on the second (talents, resources and values) put into the communication 3rd (English as a second language, expression) gave him the confidence and the credentials to move forward with his big screen career and on to teaching and his political office?

Success

The second Terminator was the number-one box-office hit. He was dead right.

There is so much more about this man’s life that can be explored via the interceptions (transits to the intercepted signs! That Neptune Libra in the home/secret relationships . . . )

Intercepted signs are not always this dramatic, but moving out of the cultural/home/family limitations/expectations is often the key to unlocking the power behind them. There is a link here to the notion of 'Karma' as well, which we will go into, in deltail, in our first course of 2017.

The Draconic Zodiac

mardukdracon_ishtar_gate Draconic ZodiacThe Marduk dragon – restored Ishtar Gate at the Pergamon Museum in Berlin

Hi Everyone, this is one of my favorite astro-techniques, straight from ancient times!

Welcome to the world of the Draconic Zodiac

Get ready to be blown away because this is a rich and magical aspect of astrology. Not many astrologers use it in modern times, but I find it extremely valuable.

The word ‘Draconic’ is from the Latin ‘ draconem’ (nom. draco) “serpent, dragon,” from the Greek drakon (gen. drakontos) meaning “serpent, seafish.” In astrology, the Caput Draconis is the ‘Dragon’s head’ or North Lunar Node and the Cauda Draconis is the ‘Dragon’s tail’ or South Lunar Node. The Draconic chart, or Draco/Draconic Zodiac then, is another reference system for plotting the chart but instead of starting 0 degrees Aries at the vernal equinox as the familiar Tropical Zodiac does (the one we use in Western Astrology and is calculated at astro.com etc), The Draco Chart begins 0 Aries at the Moon’s North Node.

Simplified Draconic Zodiac

Hang on! It’s not a complex as it sounds!

It just means that instead of the node being at the particular degree you’re accustomed to seeing it, it is ‘dialed back’ to 0 degrees of Aries. The planets all stay in the same houses and have the same angular relationship (aspects) to each other as in the tropical zodiac (T) charts but the signs and degrees are altered. Here is an example.

draconic Zodiac chart_1b
Tropical Zodiac transit chart for December 6, 2007. Notice that the North Lunar Node is at 1 degree Pisces 27′ Rx:

Read this to create your Draconic chart by hand

This will help you fully understand how this ‘other zodiac’ is determined. Or skip on to the next Para if you simply want to trust the ancients philosophy here.

To find YOUR Draconic chart, you can subtract the North Node in degrees of longitude from 360 and and add the difference to all the planets and house cusps. In the case above, the North node is 1 Pi 27 which (rounded) translates into 331 degrees of absolute longitude.

Subtract that from the full circle, [360-331=29]. Add [29] degrees to every planet, point and angle and you have the Draconic coordinates. For example, the Sun in the tropical chart above is 13 degrees Sagittarius. We add [29] degrees to it [13 Sag + 29 = 42 (-30) or 12 degrees of Capricorn.

For those not wanting to learn the basis for this zodiac yet, you can go Astro.com and choose Extended Chart Selection, then click the Natal Chart drop-down option and click Draconic Chart.

Draconic Zosiac on Astro.com

Below is the Draconic Chart for the exact same moment as the tropical zodiac chart above. All the planets are in the same position by house and aspect but the signs have shifted the exact number of degrees the North Nodes was away from 0 Aries.

draconic Zodiac chart 1aHow do we read the Draco Zodiac Chart?

Like the North Node, the Draconic chart says something about where we are headed, if we chose to reach out, and also like the South Node, it says something about where we have been, what’s comforting, familiar and secure. Some think of the Draco chart as as the “purpose” behind the soul’s intention and link it to a sense of destiny or fate.

Soul Layers

I like to think of the natal Draconic chart as a layer of “soul fabric” that lies underneath the outward personality. You can’t see it unless you look deep. Like the silk lining of a jacket, we never think about it being there and it never fully shows, yet it is a substance that makes the wearing of the coat more comfortable—a better fit—and when the breeze flips up an edge and we get a glimpse of that contrasting color and silky texture, we go “ahhh”.

The Draconic chart is something like that.

In this metaphor there is no “blending.” The Draconic chart is not woven into the natal chart like a tweed. It is the satin underneath, distinct and of its own, usually different, nature.

When the Draconic and Tropical Charts align

If you were born in 1950, 1969, 1987, 2006, check that your Node is exactly 0 Aries. If so, then your Tropical and Draconic charts will be identical, suggesting that your soul fabric is a perfect match to this lifetime’s expression.

Consider the Draconic chart and it’s relationship to the NODES. In the Draco system, the North Lunar Node is ALWAYS Zero Aries and the South Lunar Node is always 0 Libra. This is a major hint as to the meaning and purpose of the chart.

The Nodes

The Nodes, which have so much to do with unconscious patterns from the past and new conscious directions towards the future, are the points in the chart that say “This is where you have been and what is comfortable (South) and this is what you can experience if you reach out into the new and unexplored (North). Life is a balance between the two and the Draconic chart resonates with this theme—where we’ve been and where we are going. Remember, everyone has the SAME nodes in their Draco Chart. That is a KEY to understanding the principles at work.

To top it off, the Lunar Nodes in the Draconic chart are ALWAYS on the Zero degree Aries point! Talk about destiny meeting intention! (North Node on the AP)

Working with the Draconic  Zodiac Chart

North Node as the first degree of Aries, suggests how our “will to be”, or sense of I AM, moves out from the subjective and into manifest reality. The Node here gives everyone an incredible sense of self-assertion and WILL to move forward, IF they choose to develop it.

South Node as the first degree of Libra says, “I relate”, showing how our drive to interact with others in socially significant ways moves from our inner world and out towards other individuals. Because it is “from the past” it can indicate a feeling of too much reliance on “what others think” or letting others do things for us, or even run our lives. In this Libra – Aries polarity we have to make our own decisions and find how growth comes form our own experiences and adds to our capacity to relate.

In the Draco chart, there is no “sitting on the fence” or hesitating about “what to do” if we want to seek our destiny, and any aspects to the natal chart can be quite instructional. Remember, the ONLY thing different in the Draco chart is the signs of the house cusps and the signs of the planets. This tells us about an underlying orientation that we have, but may not always see.

Working with the Draconic Zodiac

There are two main ways to work with the Draconic Natal Chart. It can be read as a stand alone, checking the difference between the orientation of the signs (element, polarity and modality) in the natal chart, and it can also be read in aspect to the natal chart. The fist technique is works best if you compare the two Zodiacs planet by planet, cusp by cusp. For example if the Natal chart has the sun at 2 degrees of Gemini in the 10th house, we might say there is a need to communicate widely and knowledgeably in ones chosen profession–to feel distinct, this person needs to shine before the public in a sharp, dynamic, witty way. If the Draconic sun is there (it will always have the same house position and aspects) in the sign of Capricorn, there may be an underlying need for that public recognition to reap tangible results–something Gemini alone is not too concerned with. It also amps ambition. Going through all the planets and angles in this way brings insights.

Second Technique

The second technique is a way of comparing aspects between planets and points otherwise not revealed. The measurement, remember, is the distance of any planet from the North Lunar Node. If, for example, the original natal chart has the Moon 32 degrees ahead of the North Node and the Draconic Chart has Saturn at 2 degrees of Taurus (32 degrees ahead of the Draconic North Lunar Node or 0 Aries) there is a conjunction between the Moon and Saturn that otherwise would not have been obviousd. This can explain much in charts were there is no original aspect between planets but a powerful conjunction in the Draco to Tropical charts.

Examples

Below is an example of a natal chart (inner wheel) with the Draconic chart placed around the outside as you might place transits or progressions. Here many contacts are seen that are not apparent by the natal alone. (D) Saturn is conjunct (T) Mercury and Venus, (D) Pluto is conjunct (T) South Node, (D) Uranus is conjunct (T) Chiron, and (D) Jupiter is conjunct (T) Part of Fortune.

draco_natWith this kind of comparison it is best to keep orbs tight. Look particularly at conjunctions and/or oppositions within 0 – 2 degrees of orb. Remember, all the planetary aspects in each chart are identical. What is going to be interesting is how the Draco chart relates back to the natal. More examples are in the tutorial below.

The main thing to keep in mind is that there are TWO zodiacs in play here.

Draconic Zodiac Chart Synastry

Synastry describes the technique of comparing the natal or progressed charts of two or more people. It literally means ‘stars in the same place’ such as when one person’s Sun is conjunct another person’s Moon. All aspects between the two charts are important, the angle, or type of aspect, being less relevant than the actual link. Each planet contact brings its own symbolism to life in a relationship and evaluating them in synastry charts can supply information as to the needs, purpose and desires that are awakened when two people meet, connect and interact.

People are like permanent transits

When you meet someone who has their natal Jupiter conjunct your natal Sun, it’s like having Jupiter on the Sun whenever they are around! This is an easy contact to spot when comparing the tropical zodiac natal charts but they many also have their Draconic Pluto on your Mars, and that might feel a little different. It might also go a long way in explaining some intense dynamics in the relationship that might not otherwise be obvious.

There are several ways of using the Draconic zodiac in relationship comparisons. You can look at Draconic to Draconic or Draconic to Tropical natal or progressed charts. In this way, there may be connections under the surface that aren’t obvious in the Tropical Zodiac charts but make a lot of sense when they show up in the Draco. Here is one example:

Examples

draco_synIn this chart the (T) Mars of one person is conjunct the (D) Mars of the other. There is no Mars aspect in the tropical synastry and the feisty, sexy, battle & banter nature of the union is well explained by looking at the Draconic links. There is also a Jupiter/Mercury/Venus contact not see in the Tropical charts alone, and boy can these two talk!

Another method is to make a composite (midpoint) chart of the Draconic natal’s. This may be very different than the tropical composite and progressed composite charts, shedding new light on the purpose and energy of the relationship. Some useful exercises for reading these charts will follow in the tutorial below.

Draconic Transits

Transits to the natal Tropical chart from Draconic positions can be insightful as can the reverse–Tropical transits to the Draconic Natal. Again it may be most instructional to keep orbs tight, within a few degrees, and focus primarily on the conjunction and opposition, at least to begin with.

Transits of any kind are often associated with outer events

Although this may be an accurate association, the initial effect is usually an inner one. Some part of the psyche, some interior figure or archetype, awakens. Concurrent with the nature of the transit, house and sign position, once awake it generally starts looking around for recognition. That means it looks for a crown, a throne and lots of patronage. If the recognition is readily forthcoming and conscious awareness is placed on the needs, desires and offerings of the figure, what it represents can transform into what we consciously express without a hint of an outer event. We simple add the new aspect of being into the multiplicity of ourselves.

Projection

If, on the other hand, the needs and wants of the figure are denied by consciousness, we will meet them outside ourselves. Jung said “We people our lives with bits or ourselves,” and what we deny inwardly we bump into in the daily life as a person, place or thing. In this case, the event can be disruptive. This disruption, (or exhilaration), insures acknowledgement of the waking archetype, one way or another.

Summary

To sum it up, remember, the entire chart needs to be considered when evaluating Draconic Zodiac transits. Those, and the other major and minor Tropical transits and progressions. for example, if there is a Saturn transit to the Sun with a Draco Jupiter transit to the Nodes, the Draconic transit may be less prominent. If there is a transit to the Draconic Moon and a Tropical New moon conjunct the Ascendant, the impact can be far greater regardless of the outer planet transits. Draconic lunar events can also be considered as a “timing” device like Mercury, suggesting when major transits may manifest in an inner or outer event.

How to get started reading Draconic Zodiac Charts

Step One

Construct your natal Draconic Chart by using a computer program or by subtracting the North Lunar Node in degrees of longitude from 360 and then adding that figure to all the planets and house cusps.

Step Two

Start a page with columns. On the left, list all your planets out from the Moon, Sun etc to Pluto (include Chiron and any asteroids you like) It would start for example, like this:

1. 2 23′

Step Three

Add a few key words to describe the ORIENTATION of each planet in that sign. Focus mainly on what it “Wants, Needs and has to offer.” You can be as brief or elaborate as you like.

1. 223′ – Loves communication, offers curiosity.

Step Four

In the right hand column, place the Draco sign and degree and its orientation. Focus also on “Wants, Needs and has to offer.” It might look like this:

1a. Tropical 223′ – Loves communication, offers curiosity.

1b. Draconic 1525′ – Loves deep feelings, offers sensitivity.

Continue on with this until all your planets are listed. You can actually SEE the difference in orientation by polarity, element and modality. The Draco positions say something about that silk lining, what is underneath your tropical needs and orientation. Remember: This doesn’t negate your tropical chart or BLEND meaning. It ADDS a new dimension.

You can expand on this by comparing transits, progressions and synastry placements to other people as well.

Step Five

Do the same exercise above using your Tropical house cusps in the left hand column and your Draconic house cusps in the right. It might look like this:

1a. Tropical ASC. 10 34′ – Initiates in unique ways, zany energy.

1b. Draconic ASC 29 12′ – Initiates after much analysis, quick mind.

Continue this through all 12 houses, focusing on the needs of the signs as they apply to the qualities of each house. You can take this further by considering the rulers of each sign on each cusp and were they fall in both the Tropical and Draconic chart. In the example above, the (t) Asc is ruled by Saturn and Uranus where as the (d) Asc is ruled by Mercury.

These above exercises are a great way to become familiar, step by step with your Draconic Chart.

Step Six

Find any aspects (look for the conjunctions and oppositions first) between the natal Tropical placements and the Draconic. As in the chart example above, consider the conjunction between (d) Saturn and (t) Mercury/Venus. How does that make the natal chart different? What is underneath the Mercury/Venus conjunction that was not obvious before?

Homework

Now, approach this at the level you feel comfortable. You might want to run your Draco chart and compare the sun sign, Moon and Ascendant. That’s plenty to start with. Others of you will go through the whole tutorial. It’s all good. My goal here is to inform you of this other zodiac, and give you the tools to get started.

So, any questions? Insights? Let’s all discuss them in the comments.

Medical Astrology

MedicalAstrologyHi everyone,

Let’s jump in straight in with a few key points on the ancient practice of medical astrology. And then for or a direct experience, listen to the Astro-Body Scan guided exploration.

The Zodiac in Medical Astrology

First up, each sign links to a particular part of the body, starting with Aries ruling the head and ending with Pisces ruling the feet. Although focus can be placed on powerful health indicators like the Sun, sixth house and the Ascendant alone, it helps to remember that we all have the twelve signs of the zodiac in our charts. By looking at the houses and their associated signs from a health perspective, we can learn about our needs for vitality, and genuine expression in the various areas of life.

Notice how this approach can answer questions about how best to strengthen and nourish our natural energies as we acknowledge each sign according to house position. Understanding what it means to have Aries in the fourth house, as opposed to Taurus there, can lead to a more fulfilling home life, and quite possibly the reduction of any unexplained fevers or headaches. Discovering the difference between Capricorn on the Ascendant as opposed to Gemini can initiate a more creative access to the outer world, and minimize chronic lethargy, depression or problems with the knees and joints.

Looking closely at the signs around the horoscope and how they currently express is one way to ascertain what is not right in life and make meaningful adjustments that lead to a greater sense of well being. By honoring the individual needs of the signs through the houses, the door opens to natural vigor, energy flow and zest for life. Think of it as your own, personal feng shui for well being.

Remember, we are looking at the body and any “dis-ease” or lack of balance as a message, not a diagnosis. Use astrology to approach health in a more holistic way.

For example, the sign Cancer rules the stomach

This water sign has to do with making connections, feeling nurtured and ‘needed’ by others. If my stomach is upset, my nurturing life may be out of balance. With that knowledge I can start to ask the right questions such as, “Am I feeling loved. Am I looking after myself?” Particularly, I look to the HOUSE ruled by Cancer. Am I giving and receiving love and nurturing there? In my own chart, it’s the 11th house so I might ask if I’m feeling loved by friends, or if I am in groups that resonate as my clan or tribe. In this way, tummy trouble helps me look at my life in a new way. The alternative is to take an antacid and hope for the best.

Another good example is a headache

The head is ruled by Aries, the sign of independence and action. Aries likes to initiate projects, start the ball rolling and above all, be the boss. If I get a headache I ask, where am I not being independent and assertive in my life? Where have I taken a subordinate role when really I want to be top dog? I look at the house ruled by Aries to suggest where I really need to be the boss. I can assert my healthy aggression there, or I can take an aspirin. You see how this work?

If we treat aches and pains and even life threatening diseases like spam and ‘bulk delete/treat’ without reading the message, a great opportunity for true well being is missed. Knowing the medicinal zodiac can help highlight were in the chart (in the life) something has gotten out of balance and how honoring the sign ruling that house can be restorative.

Again, Medical Astrology is informative and fascinating, but never a substitute for proper self care and medical attention where appropriate.

Signs and Rulerships in Medical Astrologymedical_astrology-240x300

  • Aries – assertiveness – head, fevers (acute conditions)
  • Taurus – sensation – throat, voice, vocal cords, larynx
  • Gemini – communication – shoulders, arms, hands, lungs (voice/articulation/ larynx)
  • Cancer – nurturing – stomach
  • Leo – creativity – heart (upper back)
  • Virgo –discernment – upper digestive tract (food allergies)
  • Libra – relationship – kidneys and lower back
  • Scorpio – transformation – sexual organs and lower intestines
  • Sagittarius – exploration – hips and thighs (moving forward)
  • Capricorn – enterprise – skin, skeletal system and knees (chronic conditions)
  • Aquarius – originality – nervous system, circulation and ankles
  • Pisces – spirituality – the feet, lymphatic system, endocrine system

Let’s play with this, with your own chart and charts in your files. Study with the mindset that we aren’t trying to fix anything. We are reading a message.
