CosmiTec's Love Letter, Issue #083 -- Midpoints In Love (Final Part)
October 21, 2011

We came upon a highly important and very convincing documentary that shows without a doubt that our health and well-being is in danger. Because it affects ALL of us, all over the earth (some areas are more affected than others, but nevertheless...), we want to share this video with you.

We at Cosmic Technologies are extremely concerned about health, wellness and well-being and the way our society has evolved in the wrong direction on many levels.

This video once more proves that MUCH more is going on AGAINST human interests, against our well-being and health.

We hope to bring more awareness by sharing this video and we'd like you to share it with your "friends" too if you see fit.

It's a long video (more than an hour and a half in duration) but you may get hooked, shocked, astonished, disturbed and disgusted by what is actually going on above our heads. Figuratively and litterally!

Click here to watch the video !

Social networks are evolving rapidly now that Facebook is rolling out its new highly controversial Timeline and Ticker features with added "frictionless charing" (logging your web behavior and indiscriminatingly sharing it instantly with your "friends").

It remains to be seen how people will cope with the privacy concerns this all raises and how the privacy commissions worldwide will react.

Reportedly, people are more and more becoming Facebook-tired, not that they will leave Facebook or jump ship soon, but just that they won't bother or feel the urge to again adjust their privacy settings for the n-th time...

We're anxiously waiting for Google's response to the Facebook (business) pages and currently post and share links and comments simultaneously on Diaspora* and on our public Facebook page.

Note that you don't need a Facebook account to watch and follow our public Facebook page !

It's public indeed and everyone can read and follow us, but only Facebook members can reshare, comment or "like."

Unlike other "facebookers" who love quantity posts, we only post on irregular intervals if something of importance (that is related to astrology, oenetic sciences, cymatics, well-being, vibrations and energies, revolutionary concepts etc.) has to be shared.

The information must be as reliable as possible and the content should be as high as possible as well.

We don't mind if the content is weird or "uncommon" though. We try to think out of the box here and we know that this is not always to everyone's liking because people are often programmed to blindly comply with mainstream habits and thoughts -- whatever source "mainstream" comes from.

In the final part of our midpoints in love series, we list some of the most common midpoints with their meaning and give some examples to show how the midpoints actually work in practice. You may understand that astrology without midpoints is like a car without wheels ;-)

Blessings and Love!

Love Forecasts for November 2011

November 2011 may become an eventful, transformative and hectic month with important planetary activity going on. If you are born around January 4-5, February 17-18, April 4-5, May 19-21, July 6-7, August 21-23, October 7-8 or November 20-22, the whole month may become quite hard physically, emotionally, or both. You may be stuck in a situation, seem not to be able to move forward and may experience plain difficult situations the severity of which also depend upon your own natal chart. There is some agony noticeable, suffering, pain or heartbreak... Be tenacious and don't give in!

This month will bring the following important configurations that we will discuss in a second:
  • there are three "planetary" stations going on (Neptune, Mercury and Chiron), two of which are on a "critical" degree.
  • there is a Solar Eclipse when the Moon is at its closest point to the earth (perigee).
But first things first, let's start with the beginning.

Around November 1, Mercury at 28° Scorpio squares Neptune at 28° Aquarius. This is a disappointing aspect related to false hopes. There is lots of confusion going on and things are not clear.

For some of you, this day may bring you in a romantic mood but also know that infidelity or betrayal is in the air.

In business matters, this is not a good aspect and it is related to financial crashes and losses.

Also, around November 1-2 physical injuries are possible. Some configurations point to fire and burns.

Mind your health if you are born around January 4-5, February 17-18, April 4-5, May 19-21, July 6-7, August 21-23, October 7-8 or November 20-22 because the early days of November bring a cold or flu-like symptoms.

Mercury and Venus enter Sagittarius around November 2.

Both planets will walk together side by side till late November and ease otherwise challenging configurations. They will make for friendly conversations, talks, messages, texts, gifts, presents, letters etc. and will especially make life of the ones born between May 19 and June 13 easier and more enjoyable with lots of nice presents, gifts, encounters and meetings.

Mercury and Venus in this mutable fire sign don't like boundaries and frontiers and both want lots of freedom and want to be connected with the Universe to widen their horizon. November 2011 is a good month to travel, take a trip and encounter or visit people from another society, class or country. It's a month of learning, propagating and studying and may prove to be eye-opening in many ways.

Around November 3-4, you may suddenly find love, enjoy nice surprises and find happiness. This is the more so if you are born around January 8, February 21, April 8, May 24, July 10, August 26, October 11 or November 25. Enjoy the day!

However if you are born around these days of November 3-4, your (solar return) year (counting from birthday to birthday) will all be about facing realities, hard facts and, especially, physical injuries or illness. Take it easy!

If you are born around January 10, February 23, April 10, May 26, July 12, August 28, October 13 or November 27 you are extremely popular around November 5-6. You feel lucky and are persuasive. Why don't you propose now or pop up "the question"?

Around November 7, Mars at 28° Leo opposes Neptune at 28° Aquarius. On a mundane level, this opposition is often significating bank failures/collapses, strikes and manifestations. It's a very upsetting configuration because Neptune is already slowing down in speed and almost stationary.

Aside from being a sniper combo too, both planets are also related to failures, fire and flu. There is lots of work behind the scenes but a standstill of some kind (reflected by strikes among others) is noticeable.

If you are born around November 8, you may encounter a severe (financial) setback during your (solar return) year (counting from birthday to birthday). A huge cold shower awaits you. Find consolation in music and going to concerts. Spirituality rules and will help you.

Stationing Neptune at 28° Aquarius will mark the month and may bring weird and chaotic experiences, especially around its station on November 9 but also later on. The combo is about trying to help victims.

Stationing Neptune is in a very powerful position, not only because of its station, but also because it's late in Aquarius and just happening prior to the November 10 Full Moon at 18° Taurus.

The Full Moon itself is quite disruptive and violent with Mars at 29° Leo conjunct the Royal Fixed Star Regulus. The period of the Full Moon (counting 3 days before and 3 days after it) may mark a MAJOR turning point. This is confirmed by the stationing position of the Asteroid Chiron at the most unreal, weird and chaotic degree of the zodiac, 0° Pisces, around November 11.

Indeed, we usually don't mention Chiron's influence too much but because it is now turning direct at a critical degree during a Full Moon while Neptune too stations to turn direct, it is just impressive enough to take notice of its influence.

Chiron creates turning points that open doors and may bring revelations, breakthroughs or insight, often accompanied by or after a shocking experience.

If you are born around November 11, your (solar return) year (lasting from birthday to birthday) is all about a major and sudden change, breakthrough and lots of tension.

This is not all, because around November 11-12, Mars enters Virgo and thus opposes stationing Chiron at 0° Pisces. The Mars-Chiron opposition, aspecting the Royal Fixed Star Regulus may point to strikes, protests and manifestations on a mundane level.

Because Mars is now entering another earth sign during the Full Moon in the earth sign Taurus, there may be an increased risk of earthquakes, earthslides and/or volcanic activity.

On a more personal level, it is often related to job changes, changes affecting the working floor and/or unemployment.

It's clear that the period between November 7-13 marks a major turning point and sudden profound changes that should not go unnoticed.

November 12-13 can be accident-prone days too because retrograde Uranus slowly enters 0° Aries now again, a very energetic degree of new beginnings and awakening.

If you are born around January 21, March 6, April 21, June 6, July 23, September 8, October 24 or December 8, you may find November 14-15 very rewarding. Socialize and meet new friends. Connect to people and you may likely find someone of interest to you.

Around November 20, the Sun at 28° Scorpio squares Neptune at 28° Aquarius. If you are born around January 4-5, February 17-18, April 4-5, May 19-21, July 6-7, August 21-23, October 7-8 or November 20-22, you may feel weak, even ill. There is too much stress and irritable tension and you'd better take a day or two off.

If you are born around November 20-22 this especially applies to you and you may need to work very hard to overcome any obstacles in your current (solar return) year (counting from birthday to birthday).

Something may be dissolving in your life in a peculiar, painful or mysterious way.

The Sun enters freedom-loving and wandering Sagittarius around November 22. You focus on a larger whole, the bigger picture, "truth" and optimism.

Around November 24, Mercury stations and turns retrograde at 20° Sagittarius, resulting in some minor discomfort if you are born under the zodiac signs of Gemini and Virgo or if your Ascendant is one of these two zodiac signs. If you are born around March 17, June 18, September 20 or December 19, you may experience love's sorrow.

Stationing Mercury in this position in the sign of its detriment points to some breaking out and trying to stand on one's own feet. So, it may bring some hectic and hyper-active moments. Don't believe everything you hear or read!

Around November 25 there is a Solar Eclipse at 2° Sagittarius, making the Mercury station just more important and noticeable.

Expect disruptions of all kinds of traffic and strikes to increase. The focus is on propagating and spreading the word...

The Solar Eclipse at 2° Sagittarius, just conjunct the Fixed Star Delta Scorpii (or Isidis, Dschubba, Dzuba or Akrab according to your sources) points to political issues, demonstrations and strikes on a mundane level.

Also, it denotes a huge dissatisfaction with the current situation and may result in kind of an exodus, escape from certain untenable situations. There is no real fixed place of residence and chances are there will be some events going on urging people to leave their home (for quite some time).

Also note that Solar Eclipses last about 6 months so that its influence will be felt for the coming 6 months and the events should not all manifest now.

Venus enters business-minded Capricorn around November 26, resulting in more financial and political interests for the days to come. Love takes more time to grow and finds status, uniforms and older people more attractive.

Around November 26, you're still in a very romantic and imaginative mood resulting in creative and artistic projects.

If you are born on November 26, your (solar return) year (lasting from birthday to birthday) may become a very successful one. Make your wishes and dreams come true!

Venus at 0° Capricorn squares Uranus at 0° Aries around November 27 resulting in enjoyable, but short-lived, encounters and meetings. Send some nice messages or gifts and small presents around these days to enlighten the mood and make the expression of your love more tangible. Your love life may get a boost.

What's New on Our Web Site?

We added and changed the following items:
  • we moved the testimonials posted on single pages from the central content (text) area to the right navigation bar to make reading the content area more "enjoyable."

  • we updated lots of broken or deactivated links on our web site. Linking to external sites makes for continuous monitoring whether or not the links still work.

  • from this Love Letter on, we will include yet more birthday predictions in our monthly forecasts to make the forecasts as personal and reliable as possible -- even if they are only indicating general trends because we only analyze the position of the natal Sun in relationship with major transiting configurations. It's impossible to be very specific and personal though as we would need your exact date, time and place of birth to analyze your charts more in-depth. Our monthly forecasts will never be able to replace a personal reading or analysis .

  • we added an article about the worst aspects in synastry
  • we added an article about the Arabic Parts

Midpoints In Love (Final Part)

In the previous Love Letter we discussed two ways to use the midpoints in matters of love. Either you look at the midpoints in each natal chart to find out the love potential of both partners or you can analyze the midpoints in the chart comparison (synastry) to find out how both partners cope with each other.

You need to use both methods if you want to see the whole picture.

In this article we will discuss some important midpoints with their meaning and conclude this series with some examples to show how to use the midpoints in matters of love.

In matters of love (marriage, childbirth, sex,...), the following midpoints often are aspected (in the 45° dial/wheel or 8th harmonic within a 1° orb) by other personal points, bodies and planets (the Ascendant, MC, the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, the Moon's Node).

Mind though that the keywords we list are NOT limitative. The keyword is just one single, but important, meaning of the planetary combination and is a great way for novices to learn about the working of midpoints.
  • Mercury/Venus (ME/VE): the Mercury/Venus midpoint brings gifts, love talks, nice conversations etc.

  • Venus/Mars (VE/MA): the midpoint between Venus and Mars represents desires and, especially when it is aspected by the Sun (which represents the physical body), sex.

  • Venus/Jupiter (VE/JU): the Venus/Jupiter midpoint signifies popularity above all. It brings a feeling of happiness.

  • Venus/Uranus (VE/UR): the midpoint between Venus and Uranus is a very important conception and childbirth combo. It brings excitement in matters of love and love at first sight.

  • Mars/Jupiter (MA/JU): the midpoint between Mars and Jupiter litterally denotes a successful (JU) activity (MA), a fortunate event and is very frequently found in times of happiness or success. It's one of the possible marriage and childbirth indicators.

  • Mars/Neptune (MA/NE): the midpoint between Mars and Neptune is an important illness combo but it also denotes "denial" or "refusal." In case it's aspected by Venus, the love planet, for example, it may denote rejection in love. From this midpoint alone it's not possible though to find out if it will bring illness (because Venus also represents the kidneys, ovaries, skin... for example) or if it's only related to matters of the heart. Other midpoints have to be taken into account so that you get all the pieces of the puzzle together to find out the final "image" of the puzzle.

  • Jupiter/Saturn (JU/SA): the Jupiter/Saturn midpoint has different meanings but when finding this combo strong in a chart comparison, it most often points to friendship. Don't confuse friendship with love! We never recommend marrying when in the chart comparison, this midpoint is prominent without other love connections because the union may result in divorce (a happy or fortunate separation/divorce).

    When outer planets transit the Jupiter/Saturn midpoint that also aspect planets and midpoints in the chart of the other partner, it will trigger setbacks. Especially Mars (and Saturn itself), may be very disruptive here and bring separation.

  • Jupiter/Uranus (JU/UR): the midpoint between Jupiter and Uranus brings relief from tension and (happy) surprises.

  • Jupiter/Neptune (JU/NE): the Jupiter/Neptune midpoint combines the most idealistic planets of all resulting in fantasy, dreams, high ideals and visions.

  • Jupiter/Pluto: the Jupiter/Pluto midpoint denotes fortunate (JU) developments (PL), but also large mass events.

  • Saturn/Uranus (SA/UR): the Saturn/Uranus midpoint almost always brings stress, tension and separation (disruptions). It breaks up barriers.

  • Saturn/Neptune: the Saturn/Neptune midpoint is all about dis-ease and ill-feelings. In matters of love it may bring tearful experiences.

  • Saturn/Pluto (SA/PL): this midpoint represents "the builder." However, in almost all instances that we researched, Saturn and Pluto together also result in a severe downfall and/or bankruptcy! So, it's also the combo of bankruptcy and reversals.

  • Uranus/Neptune (UR/NE): this midpoint combo repreents everything that is not visible, that is "digital" and immaterial. It works on a higher sub- or unconscious level. It is remarkably often found prominently in timed horoscopes of unconsciousness (and death!).

  • Uranus/Pluto (UR/PL): the Uranus/Pluto midpoint combines two generational bodies that bring (r)evolution and a sudden turn of events -- for good or bad.
Jupiter expands and broadens. It brings some favors.

When we find Saturn in the picture or planetary combination, it always brings limits and/or separation and loneliness. However, note that childbirth is always a "happy separation" and you may often find Saturn prominent is some midpoint combinations.

The same is true for a change of residence or a move (which is actually a separation from the environment or place!). So, don't always think the worst when you find Saturn in a planetary picture or midpoint!

Uranus is related to the unexpected and sudden turn of events. It's the awakener.

Neptune dissolves and makes things invisible (more spiritual or platonic).

Pluto brings power and force.

Remember that the most exact midpoint combinations and planetary pictures (orb 0°00' - 0°01') work out prominently, powerfully and will manifest.

We once more remind you that all the below mentioned examples and principles relate to the 45° dial/list or 8th Harmonic -- as discussed in our previous Love Letters.

Now let's take a look at some examples to find out how it all works in practice.

First, we analyze some random natal charts to find out about the love life of the native by analyzing the natal midpoints.

Example 1:
In a female horoscope of a client we find the following exact midpoints (orb 0°00'!): MO = SA/KN = SO/NE.

When analyzing these midpoints or planetary pictures, you have to look up all the single midpoint combos and then blend the single delineations together into one. In other words, you have to look up MO=SA/KN and MO=SO/NE separately first and then blend their meanings.

Let's analyze this for a moment:
MO: the woman, emotional feelings
= SA/KN: separated, disconnected, limited in connecting, alone or lonely. The MO=SA/KN relates to a separated or single woman, someone who is emotionally living a detached life with the environment.
= SO/NE: a sensitive body, a spiritual person, the invisible or absent man. The MO=SO/NE midpoint then relates to a longing for an unknown man, living a spiritual life...

Because the midpoints are exact, this midpoint combo overpowers her life completely. She has never been married, almost no friends either. No children either...

Example 2:
In the natal chart of Bo Derek, born on November 20, 1956 at 14:13 PST in Long Beach (California, USA) (Source The AstroDatabank), we find the following midpoints (planetary picture): JU=VE/PL=VE/KN=SO/VE.

This picture denotes:
JU: success, happiness or something fortunate
= VE/PL: powerful love, compulsive love desires
= VE/KN: a happy union, a fortunate bond
= SO/VE: a beautiful body, a loving person

This is a midpoint combination or planetary picture of a very happy woman. No wonder she was happily married to John Derek for over 20 years.

Example 3:
In the natal chart of Arnold Schwarzenegger, born on July 30, 1947 at 04:10 am in Graz (Austria) we find the following planetary picture or midpint combination: MC=UR=SO/PL=KN/AS=SO/SA=ME/KN.

Let's delineate this one without making it too complicated (because, actually, you have to bundle every single factor and midpoint separately and then bring the together like UR=KN/AS and MC=KN/AS and UR=ME/KN and MC=ME/KN etc. and then blend it all to get the bigger picture):

MC: 'I am'
= UR: a reformer, sudden changes, reversals, upsetting situations
= SO/PL: a powerful man, a self-made man, the developing body
= KN/AS: connected with the environment and the ones that can be met there
= SO/SA: the ambitious man, the lonesome man, personal hindrances
= ME/KN: threads of communications, connected with letters or documents or talks (anything related to communication).

This planetary picture describes him in many ways, in his personal life as well as in his jobs and career. He's a builder (because of the SO/PL AND SO/SA midpoint combo) who's predestined to experience reversals (because of Uranus in this picture!).

Also notice that SO/PL and SO/SA represent the body-builder: the Sun represents the physical body and Saturn (SA) and Pluto (PL) together represent "the builder." You see how the pieces of the puzzle come together?

Now let's take a look at some random chart comparisons (synastry) between two partners.

Example 1:
Joanne Woodward (born on February 27, 1930 at 04:00 am EST in Thomasville/GA, USA) and Paul Newman (born on January 26, 1925 at 06:30 am EST in Cleveland/OH, USA) have been one of the most remarkable and happily married couples in Hollywood. And for a reason.

In the chart comparison, we notice his Moon (MO) to aspect her Moon/Jupiter (MO/JU) and Sun/Moon (SO/MO) midpoints: MO=MO/JU=SO/MO.

Now look up the different midpoint combinations in CoSi and this translates to:
MO: emotions, feelings and the comfort zone of Paul
= MO/JU: a happy feeling, optimism in Joanne's chart
= SO/MO: the heart and soul of Joanne.

Moreover, they both share heaps of auspicious midpoint contacts (too numerous to list here!).

Example 2:
Goethe (born on August 28, 1749 at 12:00 pm LT in Frankfurt/M, Germany) and Charlotte von Stein (born on December 25, 1742 in Eisenach, Germany -- time unknown). Because we don't have an accurate time of birth of Charlotte von Stein, we don't have any Ascendant, MC and Moon positions. However, we can still use the other bodies and planets in our chart comparison.

Both shared a deep friendship that lasted about 12 years (a Jupiter return!) and ended with Goethe's sudden departure without telling her. In the chart comparison we notice that her Mercury (ME) is exactly at his Ascendant/Moon's Node midpoint (ME=AS/KN). Her Mars (MA) is exactly at his Venus/Saturn and Jupiter/Saturn midpoints (MA=VE/SA=JU/SA).

Now, look up the different midpoint combos in CoSi: ME=AS/KN, MA=VE/SA and MA=JU/SA. The ME=AS/KN midpoint denotes lots of ideas and talks between both partners. No wonder that she had such an influence on his writings...

The MA=VE/SA=JU/SA midpoint clearly links to "friendship" (the Jupiter/Saturn midpoint) but the VE/MA part is related to separation and huge disenchantment and severe dissatisfaction.

Clearly, this important midpoint describes their relationship fully.

Exact midpoints almost always work out in an infallible and very clear way, leaving you wonder if there is free will at all...

Example 3:
Paul McCartney (born on June 18, 1942 at 14:00 in Liverpool, UK) and Linda Eastman - McCartney (born on September 24, 1941 at 10:00 am EDT in New York, USA).

In the chart comparison, we notice that her Mercury (ME) is at his Venus/Jupiter (VE/JU) midpoint (ME=VE/JU). Also, her Jupiter (JU) is at his Mercury/MC midpoint and his Jupiter (JU) is exactly at her Saturn/Pluto (SA/Pl) midpoint.

Let's delineate the midpoints (look them up in CoSi): ME=VE/JU.

Any VE/JU midpoint in synastry denotes pure love and happiness in love. It can't be better and this midpoint denotes optimism and true happiness!

The JU=MC/ME midpoint is another very happy combo of optimism and popularity etc.

Finally, the JU=SA/PL midpoint denotes sorrow through illness. It brings sacrifice and a helping hand in slowly deteriorating situations (illness). The fact that Linda lost her cancer battle speaks loud and clear. It was a devastating experience for both of them and the midpoints do describe their highly caring and loving union perfectly.

The chart comparison clearly shows what people will experience together and how they interact together.

It goes beyond a doubt that using the (exact) midpoints results in a goldmine of reliable information. Midpoints and planetary pictures (geometry) must be incorporated in your workflow when delineating horoscopes. It will increase the accuracy of the predictions and analyses manyfolds and you will soon start to raise the question and wonder whether our life really is cut in stone...
