Fwd: Admetos station on Algol (long)

[Somebody pointed out that the Uranian planet Admetos stationed retrograde at 26 Taurus around August 26, between the still-contested election in Afghanistan and Gen. McChrystal's report to Defense Secretary Robert Gates and that Admetos, Saturn and the North Node form a Grand Trine (in Earth).--MAH)
Admetos is blockage, stoppage, finding oneself in a tight, enclosed space;
bogged down; it's also earth, real estate; can be death
That grand trine says to me that we and the Afghans are trapped in a nasty,
no-way-out (for now) cycle
26 Taurus is fixed star Algol -
Ambition, dogged determination, often artistic; "the most evil, violent, and
dangerous star in the heavens;", keen awareness of cruelty, horror, are
sometimes the perpetrators. Eye problems, facial surgery, head, neck, upper
arm, shoulder injuries, thyroid problems, narcolepsy, birth anomalies,
post-traumatic stress disorder, danger of mutilation, murder. In China, a
star of "The Great Trench" of piled-up, dismembered corpses. War (esp
attacks), mass murder, terror, mob violence, intolerance, massacres,
assassination, mass disasters, quakes, eruptions, fires, plagues,
storms, fog, shipwrecks, beheading, hanging, mutilation, choking,
suffocation, asphyxiation, electrocution, animal attacks, mass animal
meteorite falls, Virgin Mary apparitions.

About grand trines - I sent this to the Astrolife group 7 22 09:
Just have time to write a "quicky" on my take on Grand Trines
Trines are open channels of energy, like an open valve - the flow is not
hindered - so they can be benefic - but often are not so, because there is
no way to control or stop that flow.
Think of an endlessly cycling railroad track, with no stops except at one of
the 3 planets (or combination of planets) involved.
A Grand Trine makes a "cage" that encloses a person, making them "run on
rails"; it also can close out other influences.
Grand Trine in Water can "enclose" a person in emotions or family ties with
(seemingly) no way out - an endless replay loop going round and round,
shutting out possible new emotional ties
Grand Trine in Fire can "enclose" a person in their own belief
system/religion/philosophy/inspirations, unwilling or unable to hear other
points of view, or perhaps a tragic focus on pleasure and fun
Grand Trine in Air - the same with ideas, paths of communication, schooling,
or being tied down in relationships that limit freedom
Grand Trine in Earth - can be trapped in practical concerns or a "pure
science" belief system, or a physical situation that limits one, or keeps
your nose to the grindstone, keeping one from a chance to develop
creativity, or to just plain have fun
My first teacher, Betty Lundsted, told us that she once had a job in the
record-keeping section of a large hospital - she was studying astrology, was
fascinated with medical and psychological astrology, and had a field day
getting birth data from the patients files - she never took down the names,
only the birth date and sex and ailment(s), for research, and learned a lot
about various diseases and their patterns. She was puzzled about one thing -
all of the chart patterns turned up, including Grand Crosses and
"Grand-Grand Cross" - planets bunched in clusters that formed a square) but
she never found a "Grand-Grand Trine" - charts with most planets clustered
in a triangle). Then one day she accessed the files for the people in the
"hospice" section of the institution, where patients were permanently
helpless, unable to care for themselves and had to be totally cared for,
fed, etc. Voila! The Grand-Grand Trines! So, quoth Betty, bless your
Marie Antoinette (Nov 2, 1755 NS, 7:30 PM LAT, Vienna) is a classic example
of a tragic Grand Trine (you might even say a Grand-Grand Trine: Sun cnj
Venus in Scorpio, Mars cnj Fortuna in Cancer, Uranus cnj SNode in Pisces.
(She also had Neptune in Leo trine Pluto in Sag). Although born a Grand
Duchess, daughter of the powerful Queen of Austria, she ran wild in her
childhood - no one could get her to study or discipline herself; she wanted
only to have fun. She was married to King Louis XVI when only 15 (a
dynastic, forced marriage - the Water "family ties" in spades!) - there was
no way to control her wild spending sprees (the Leo trine) and in the end,
contributed to the downfall of the monarchy, and died on the guillotine
during the French Revolution. There is a legend that the Austrian court
astrologers were horrified by her horoscope - so I am assuming they knew a
thing or two about "lucky" trines!)
Another of my teachers, Joanna Shannon, told us of a client who, she said,
was one of the loneliest, most unhappy persons she had ever met - and she
had a Sun-Moon-Jupiter grand trine! She was wealthy, but unable to break out
of the "cage"
Betty was right - bless your squares!
PS: forgot to mention - the "shut out" effect seems to operate by
"bypassing" the intervening houses between the trined planets.
For instance, I have an exact Pluto trine MC (Cancer-Pisces). It "bypasses"
my 10th, virtually "castrating" 4 planets there, including what should be a
powerful Sun in Aries on the degree of its exaltation, bypasses the 11th,
cutting off friendships by various means (forced to go to a school of my
mother's choice, far from my neighborhood friends, friends moved away,
friends died, friends listened to untrue gossip and broke off from me - and
one (this was very hard to take), broke off because she was devoted to
science and despised astrology (I should mention that I also have Saturn in
Aquarius in the 8th - so I assume a lot of this is karma) I hope some who
are interested will test out this "bypassed houses" theory of mine - it's
just an idea I had.
PPS: Marie Antoinette had several admirable traits, and grew into wisdom and
dignity - but too late.
