Sunday January 13, 2013 – noonish
Topic – Relationship of the Sun and Moon in the Natal Chart
Fee – None, your attendance is all we ask.
Happy New Year!
Welcome to 2013, the Year of the Lovers: 2+0+1+3=6= Lovers card in Tarot Major Arcana. This card relates to the sign Gemini, the Twins in astrology. The full date: 1+1+3+2+0+1+3=11 or Wheel of Fortune or Fortune card in the Tarot Major Arcana. This card relates to Jupiter. The number 11 is a master number and is not usually reduced to its lowest form: 1+1=2. In the Tarot, the number 2 is the Priestess card in the Major Arcana. The Priestess relates to the Moon in astrology.
For Sunday January 13, we now have only Jupiter in Gemini in retrograde motion. He is slowing down and getting ready to station and go direct on January 30. Meanwhile Saturn is also slowing down and will station retrograde February 18. For that short period from January 30 to February 18 there will be no planets in retrograde. While this presents an opportunity for action, forward progress and to make things happen, just know that some things started during this period may take some time to fully develop just as babies born during this time might.
A chart for January 13 finds a loaded Capricorn with Sun at 23 ‰, Mercury at 20 ‰, Pluto at 9 ‰ and Venus at 5 ‰ all in the 9th house (Koch system) of higher learning, philosophy and belief systems. We have Mars and the Moon in Aquarius in the 10th house of recognition and Neptune, Chiron and Uranus in the 11th house of groups, organizations and fellowship. Saturn is in the 6th house of details and Jupiter is in the 1st house of self. To support our karma, the north Node, Rahu, is in the 7th house of significant relationships. Looks like we have a very good chart for the meetup. The ascendant/descendant axis is in fixed signs for focus while the Midheaven and Imum Coeli (MC/IC) axis is in cardinal signs for action. We have all 3 modes covered with 5 planets in cardinal signs giving us the green light for go, action, let’s get it on. The 4 elements are also covered with emphasis on Earth because of the 4 planets in Capricorn. Let’s get practical. Let’s be realistic. We do have Uranus as our singleton fire planet so expect him to at least try to express his unexpected uniqueness. Last up of note Mercury is out-of-bounds. When out-of-bounds, Mercury can behave much like he might when he is retrograde so mind what you say.
We are going up-town fancy for 2013 and will be having an agenda. Here is our agenda for this meetup.

If you have other ideas for topics, please let Spencer or I know. What we don’t know, we shall learn together.
Spencer and I have talked about this and because of the ongoing expense of the fees for the meetup site and costs of copies and such, we are going to add a container for “love donations” to help defray some of the costs. This is entirely voluntary. There is no fee or charge for attending this meetup; this is just to help defray some of the costs.
After the meetup, about 3:30pm, I will be conducting a class looking at the placement, aspects and relationship of the Sun and Moon in their charts. A fee of $10 is requested for this class.
This meetup will be at our usual location, Un Urban Café, 3301 Pico Blvd. Great little coffee shop with delicious food and excellent drink selections. Do support the Un Urban if you can by buying a drink and/or something to eat.
If you have any questions, would like to request a chart or just want to chat, e-mail me [masked] or ring me up,[masked]-4417.
We hope to see you all on January 13th for our next meetup.
