Hi, I'm Louise. I'm an astrologer and therapist in Exeter in the UK.

Most of my ramblings will probably be about astrology, but I'm also interested in psychology, alternative therapies, hypnotherapy, Focusing, consciousness, meditation, Integral (Ken Wilber), and the work of the Institute of Noetic Sciences.

I will be back when I have more time. More regular updates, if shorter, appear on my Facebook page, which you can reach from the tab above. Greetings to everyone who stops by :)

Just a quick note to say that with transiting Saturn conjunct my natal Mars in Libra in the 4th, and transiting Mars coming up to conjunct natal Saturn in Aries on Tuesday, I have had a bad back (lower back) since Thursday night and I'm finding it really difficult to get about. That with all the Aries energy on top. Restriction, pain, frustration, raaaarrrrr!!!! That about sums it up :)  More when I can sit at a desk for longer than 5 minutes :)

Shooting aboard a nuclear sub here in the UK

Here in the UK, there has been a shooting aboard a nuclear sub. The BBC News report states that one crew member was killed and another seriously injured. Below is a chart for the time the police were called in - I'm assuming it was only minutes after the event.


Note, Mars/Uranus on the Aries MC. Squaring Pluto. 

Mars-Pluto aspects are very common in the charts for shootings. Mars ruling guns and violent, aggressive and impulsive acts, and Pluto an obsession with, a compulsion or an intensification of the Mars energy. Pluto has been suggested as a 'higher octave' of Mars. Pluto correlates with the animal instinct as well, with danger, with threat and crisis. Uranus represents the unexpected nature of the event, the sudden shock, the breaking away from the norm, the perversity of the event. 

The presence of Mars and Uranus both in Aries emphasises impatience, impulsiveness, wilfulness and speed. Right on the Midheaven, the conjunction highlights these energies strongly.
Pluto in a tense, square aspect to the two, is also a symbol for nuclear power. 

19 September 2011 Update - this is the Wikipedia link for the submarine involve which gives all updates for the incident.  (Able Seaman Ryan Samuel Donovan was jailed for life today)
