As we are commemorating the end of the First World War in the U.K. today I thought I'd share with you the chart of the actual treaty and the correct time it was agreed upon (as opposed to the time it was signed, or actually came into force)
PLEASE NOTE at 19 minutes 20 seconds I am also sharing a Hypno track called Your Wise Self....so do turn this off if you're listening while driving or operating any sort of machinery...and then re-listen when you're seated or relaxed.
So, here is the chart itself, with the actual location of the agreement. How fitting, Libra is rising...
However a LOT of squares (internal conflict) in this chart.
And here is the chart of one of the signatures to the agreement.
A Libra Sun but with Cancer rising and Mars on the Ascendant/first house. A mostly Cardinal chart. Big oppositions in there.
I made a visit to the British Museum a few weeks ago having seen this video https://youtu.be/N8oWGwcdFmA about the Astrolabes that were going to be included in the exhibition.
At the bottom of this post is the link to make your own:)
Here are the photos I took. Aren't they beautiful pieces of work?
These are the parts of an Astrolabe
Here you can learn more about the ones in Oxford https://www.mhs.ox.ac.uk/students/03to04/Astrolabes/Starholder_society.html
Here is the Astrolabe App
And here you can make your own! https://in-the-sky.org/astrolabe/index.php
This week I'm covering the Whole Sign Method.
It's slightly different to the Equal House System I've been teaching you.
Here is the link to Robert Hand's excellent text on the subject
You can make your own chart up using this system on http://www.astro.com/
Go to the Extended Chart Selection under FREE Horoscopes and when you've entered your data, under where it says 'options for zodiac and houses' choose 'whole signs'.
Here's a screenshot.
This is also where you can get your chart to be Equal House, which is what I've been teaching you...
Here's Queen Elizabeth in Equal House
Compared to Queen Elizabeth Whole Sign
Here's the cheat sheet for the ancient Greek system: Twelve Places.
This week I am discussing charts with Sun square Moon. Quite a common aspect and one that can work well as it gives inner motivation or not so well if no self-reflection.
Remember The Sun is conscious
The Moon is unconscious

Marjorie Orr- Astrologer http://star4cast.ca/
Sun Virgo, Moon Gemini.
The whole chart is a Square!

This week we are covering giving birth and the dynamics involved.
First chart is me on inside, my son on outside. His Ascendant is exactly conjunct my Sun in Pisces. His Moon is in my 5th. A very emotional time (nice emotions!)
Second chart is my mother giving birth to me. Nothing special with 5 house. Dynamic didn't happen until I gave birth and again much later when my Mum was very old. Moon in same sign.
My Mum and first born my brother. No 5th house birth dynamic, other than Neptune (drugs). A bigger story with 7th house Bruv's Moon.
My Dad and first born my brother. Bruv's Moon to Dad's Sun conjunction and Bruv's Moon also conjuncts Dad's Ascendant. Both charts are Bucket charts. Bruv's Mercury to Dad's Moon/Saturn/Jupiter in 10th.
This week is all about Saturn in the sign of Capricorn (where it is at the moment 2018-2020)
Here is Mother Meera's chart. She now lives in Germany and still gives Darshan https://www.mothermeera.com/
Here is Gustav Holst's chart. Notice Saturn in the first. He got interested in Astrology during his Saturn return and then he started to write The Planets. So these pieces of music are influenced by the Astrology (not Astronomy) of the planets.
DO listen to his wonderful composition of Saturn~The Bringer of Old Age https://youtu.be/OYPg8H5LtCI
(great conducting by Susanna Mälkki who is a #Pisces)
Just a little discussion about the first day of Libra= Also called The Autumn (or Autumnal) Equinox
Here's the piccie of the other Equinox's and Solstices which are our seasons:
Spring-Aries, Summer-Cancer, Autumn-Libra, Winter-Capricorn.
The other Pagan Festivals are when the Sun is (approx) halfway through the Fixed signs of Aquarius-Imbolc, Taurus-Beltane, Leo-Lammas and Scorpio-Samhain
These are the lovely diaries that I use, aren't they fab!

This week we are learning about how to read for friends (or yourself) and what's important in a reading.
The things to take into consideration are: is the present problem something natal or to do with a transit?
We are using an Indigo Person's chart.
More info on Indigos is here http://www.maryenglish.com/old/indigo1.htm
An interesting way to find out the meaning of a significant dream is to record the time it happened and make a chart.
Linda Reid talks about how to do this in her book Crossing the Threshold, The Astrology of Dreaming https://bit.ly/2CajP3V
Nice Sleep Track here http://www.maryenglish.com/old/Sound%20Sleep.mp3

This week I'm talking about a news item about the sea.
A thing called Red Tide is happening in Florida
Here's the video I saw yesterday
Most other news coverage is a little less urgent.
Maybe the present planet's positions explain this a bit more?
You can follow me on Twitter @maryenglish
Astronomy is a much needed necessity to make accurate charts.
However, with computer programmes making this easier it does mean we are not learning about the real planet's actual movements.
This is the app I mentioned that will help you spot planets (and some stars) https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/astrolabe-clock/id421777015?mt=8
This is a good video from the British Museum showing a real ancient Astrolabe https://youtu.be/N8oWGwcdFmA
Here is Jeff Mayo's book The Astrologer's Astronomical Handbook https://amzn.to/2nOl9PX
This week I am talking about Event Charts.
Making a chart for a forthcoming event, or one that might have already happened.
These can be used for weddings, interviews, starting a project, maybe creating something or dates in the future.
In the creation of Tempesta Chart, we have Virgo Ascendant, Sun Taurus in the 9th, Moon in Leo in the 11th and Mars in Libra in the first....great chart as it turned out!
More info on the remedy here on my blog, I will be updating my website very soon http://www.maryenglish.com/old/tempesta.html
Info on how the proving took place and what happened:
This week we are looking a little deeper at Mercury Retrograde.
Here's the book I mention A New Look at Mercury Retrograde by Robert Wilkinson.
Here is Robert's website http://www.aquariuspapers.com/ (looks interesting!)
Lots of (helpful) info from Donna Cunningham about Mercury Retro https://skywriter.wordpress.com/2016/01/05/how-to-manage-mercury-retrograde/
If you're interested here's Wyatt Earp's chart!
This week we are discussing K's chart. She wrote to me to share her chart which is below. Remember when you make a chart to keep it as clean and easy-to-read as possible. Avoid adding oodles of planets and asteroids, it only confuses understanding your 'self' and your chart. xx

This week is just a bit of fun.
As mentioned here is my mother's chart showing the asteroid with my Dad's name: Noel
...in her 7th house of marriage!
Find some names that mean something to/for you and add them into your chart or someone you know and make a note of the house they fall into.
Does it mean something for you?
Where does your own name end up?
Have fun! <3
