Welcome in to the Fun Astrology Podcast, Thursday, September 9th, Thomas Miller. Thanks for joining us. We’ve got a great listener question today. We’re going to talk about the position of the planets relative to the nodes of the moon.
Now I will mention, for you yod-sensitive people, that if you throw away the concept basically of orbs – which I think is a dangerous thing to do in this case – that we do have a wide yod in the sky today. And I mean, it is wide because at the base, the planets are eight degrees apart / seven degrees apart from each other, that’s Uranus and Neptune, and they are pointing up to the Sun and Mercury. But again, the sun and mercury are seven degrees apart. So if you wanted to stretch… and those of you that feel your yods, if you’re feeling them, then you feel wide-aspect yods, because that’s exactly what you have.
I was looking also to see if there might be some obvious trigger for the 7.0 Mexico earthquake. I got to tell you, I even pulled up Mexico’s chart and I looked at the transits. I looked at the solar arc. I didn’t see it now. I didn’t spend just all whole bunch of time picking that chart apart, but it wasn’t like there was some big, obvious area that tripped as far as I could tell.
Now, maybe you guys see something else that I’m missing, but I didn’t see that. And I was wondering, would there be some obvious things. We talked about the listener question yesterday about Uranus in retrograde, and then here is a widely formed yod. I mean, I don’t know, Uranus in retrograde, I guess by itself could be a trigger of that, but you’d expect Mars or somebody else.
The moon may be in some kind of a hard aspect to trigger it. And I just didn’t see it. I mean, the moon was. Harmonious Libra where it is today. Now let’s speaking of chart structure. Let’s listen to a great question. And I do have some thoughts on this one. Hi, Thomas and Marie, I am wondering about what all the outer planets are on one side of the nodes and then the personal inner planets are on the other side, all lumped together.
And that just feels very intimidating. I was wondering what you had to say about that. Thank you. Thank you, Ann Marie. Thanks for listening. And thanks for leaving us that question. And it’s really appropriate to even be talking about that in light of Jada is kind of in the same conversation, because this is a definite aspect that Vedic astrology acknowledges and recognizes.
It’s called Kala sarpa yoga. Now yoga is not, you know, Crows pose. It’s not that in Vedic astrology, it’s what they basically call their setup and the meaning and the structure around them. But the Kala sarpa is when you have all of the planets on one side of that nodal axis or the other. So the nodes of the moon are always opposite each other.
So if you have a wine, if you just took the nodes of the moon and you draw a line through them, You’d have an opposition line straight up and down 180 degrees apart. If all of the planets are on one side of that line or another, that is considered Kala sarpa yoga. To my knowledge, Western astrology doesn’t have a term or a name or even a meaning for them.
Now in Vedic astrology, you’ll see different ways of interpreting it. Some people say, Ooh, that’s bad. Some people say, Ooh, that’s not so bad. Some people are kind of in the middle. Like it’s not that big of a deal. I think Anne Marie’s observation is an excellent one. Number one, she’s got her eye on the chart.
So she’s in tune with exactly where the planetary positions are and observed quite astutely that all of the faster moving, as she said, personal planets, the sun, the moon, Mars, mercury Venus are all on one side of that axis line. And. And all of the slow movers, Uranus, Neptune, Jupiter, or Saturn and Pluto are all on the other side of the nodal axis line.
A couple of weeks ago, we talked about the structure of the planets right now, being favorable to throwing off these yards. And this is exactly why, because you have these fanned out planets. It doesn’t matter really whether they’re fast or slow in this case with yards. Here you have this line of planets over about five signs that are fairly spread out.
And then you have the faster mover. Planets are basically stacked into two houses right now. Virgo. So for the last several months we’ve been in this narrow bandwidth of really just a couple of houses, width of the movement of these faster planets have been crossing these slow or stalwarts in a way that it throws off the ingredients necessary for yachts.
Now, the other thing that we talk about is the outer planets or the theme builders and the faster planets are the triggers. So, yes, you would say that we have had more opportunities to trigger these themes and that in and of itself could very likely be why so many people have been feeling the tension and the heaviness and the stress that we’ve all been feeling today might be coming from those triggers as these things are slowly starting to pop.
And I know there are a lot of people that feel that something is just right around the corner. And then when you have a 7.0 Richter earthquake in a tourist population area of a million people, you, you take note. So rather than it being one thing or another, I subscribed to the. Uh, passive interpretation of the call, SRP yard yoga, but there are a lot of people that say, boy, when you get the planet stacked on one side of the nodes or the other lookout going to be a tough time, we just had that a while back.
I bet it was a year ago, nine months ago, something like that. We had the Kala sarpa position where everybody was on one side of the nodes and you know, it wasn’t, I mean, it didn’t lead to COVID. So Saturn and Pluto to me are a much bigger deal. That is in my opinion, the big theme that we are still under and will be for a long time.
But I do think that this is definitely a structure of triggers. I do think that there are triggers. I have. We did our solar arc practicum class last night, and I’m going to be assimilating some of the material from that. And I will be doing a video kind of putting all of this together and I’ll let you know when that’s available.
So all in all, I think not to make any thing magnified of the fact that this is there. But to definitely know that we’re in this trigger theme kind of set up in the chart. And we have been really since what, January or March around March, spring time in the Northern hemisphere, we’ve been in this position and we will continue to be in it for awhile.
And if you think about it, we really don’t move out of this position with all the slower planets on this side of the nodal axis for another several years. Because the first one to move will be Uranus and that’s not going to happen for another about five years. So we’ve, we’ve got this for quite a while, this structure and you know what we all chose to be here for this show.
So you might as well pop some popcorn cause our souls chose it. Have a good day. I’ll see you back for Friday, tomorrow.
