>You are so sweet to take the time to look at this Diana! Really--when I
posted my letter I didn't expect anyone to take time out of their schedule to
give me a second opinion, I just wanted to explain the situation (and wondering
out loud how much the difficult fixed stars should influence my acceptance or
rejection of a time I otherwise liked). Yes, Venus at Alcyone bothered
me--I've seen Alcyone manifest as something to weep about in other charts! If I
want to be doing any weeping I'll reread "Lassie Come Home," thank you very
>As to the hidden enemies--I don't know person or thing that could be
enemies, but then if I did they wouldn't qualify as "hidden," would they? Ha. Don't
need any poor, demanding clients either--have enough of those and am trying
to shed 'em, frankly (succeeding, too). I've a few clients who really like
the work I do for them and are willing to pay a fair price for it, and it's
that kind of person I want more of in my life.
>I really love the Sabian symbols of the May 10th, 10:00 am, Grand Blanc
Michigan chart, but Sabians probably aren't enough to overide the negatives.
I agree. I would not base an electional on the SSymbols
>The business consultant I'm working with--one of my clients--says I've got a
product people like and the market, I'm just not leveraging my talents well.
This whole transformational process came about because I'd mentioned to her
that I was considering getting out of astrology all together (delineating
charts for people that is--I'll always love the astrology) because it was too
much work for too little pay and I was getting tired of the constant struggle.
I'm reminded of the John Ruskin quote, "In order that people may be happy in
their work, these three things are needed; they must be fit for it. They
must not do too much of it. And they must have a sense of success in it."
My natal data:
7th October, 1959
8:45 pm, EST
There are a couple of dates that looked possible to me -
June 6th - about 1 PM you'd have Jupiter in 2nd trine MC,
approaching a trine to your natal Sun and MC; Mercury (your
natal ruler, and chart ruler) in dignity, trine and sextile
July 9th - about 6:35 PM: Mercury-Venus cnj sextile natal
Sun, Moon 25 Leo approaching trine to your Moon which rules
your 2nd, but the above time has a Cap ruled 2nd (w/part of
fortune in it)
Can't spend more time on this, but the basics are to try to
fortify the 2-8th rulers (your Moon-Saturn), fortify MC,
maybe fortify natal Jupiter (maybe July 22-23, when Sun
trines your Jupiter? No - Mercury goes wretch there.
Anyway, play around with these, and when you get a good
aspect, try to get it applying.
Would be good to get ruler 7th in 1st, that's others coming
to you, but sometimes not be possible.
Can you get one with your NATAL Jupiter on 2nd or 8th?
One of the most successful electionals I ever saw was based
on getting natal Jupiter angular.
