Edgar Cayce Natal Horoscope Rectification

Edgar Cayce in 1910
Edgar Cayce

Edgar Cayce (March 18, 1877 – January 3, 1945) was an American Christian psychic, healer, spiritual teacher, and mystic, who answered questions on subjects as varied as healing, astrology, reincarnation, wars, Atlantis, and future events while under a self-induced hypnotic trance. Other abilities that have been attributed to Cayce include astral projection, prophesying, mediumship, viewing the Akashic Records or “Book of Life”, and seeing auras. Cayce said he became interested in learning more about these subjects after he was informed about the content of his readings, which he reported that he never actually heard himself.  Biographer Jess Stearn gave him the nickname, “The Sleeping Prophet.”  A nonprofit organization, the Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.), was founded to facilitate the study of Cayce’s work. A hospital and a university were also established.

Cayce became a celebrity toward the end of his life, and he believed the publicity given to his prophecies overshadowed the more important parts of his work, such as healing the sick and studying religion. Today, a total of 14,306 of his readings are available at A.R.E. Cayce headquarters in Virginia Beach and an online member-only section along with background information, correspondence, and follow-up documentation. Historians now consider him the true founder and a principal source of the most characteristic beliefs of the American “New Age” Movement and modern Christian Mysticism.

Edgar Cayce’s Birth Time

Biographer Thomas Sugrue from “There is a River”,  quotes Cayce’s grandmother (p.59) “I heard the first squall you made at three o’clock exactly”, as his birth time. Report 4 reading 254-2 quotes a letter which Edgar Cayce wrote to Ms. 516 on September 16, 1935 which he states, “…I was born on March 18, 1877, in Hopkinsville, Christian County, Kentucky, at 1:30 o’clock on a Sunday afternoon. However, I have had several astrologers tell me it was impossible for me to have been born at that time, else I would have been a girl. But this is the actual record from my parents, the physician, and the birth certificate record…” Thus, according to Edgar Cayce’s own account, his birth certificate listed his time of birth as 1:30 PM. The kind of time isn’t mentioned, but Local Mean Time (LMT) was observed before November 18, 1883. Also, Cayce’s location of birth is usually given as Hopkinsville, Kentucky, but the information on the Cayce Readings CD-ROM published by A.R.E. says he was born on a farm near Beverly, Kentucky, about seven miles south of Hopkinsville.

In 1996, a rectification by astrologer William Stickevers, sponsored by the Edgar Cayce Center of Japan and under the advisory and oversight of Mark Thurston, Ph.D. using A.I.R. Rectification software module, resulted in a 1:10 PM LMT birth time based on the 28 documented events from Cayce’s historical biography.

Cayce’s General Characteristics

Earth and Water are Strong (F,E,A,W Scores = 1,18,0,30):

Cayce was a nurturer and a protector and prone to what has sometimes been referred to as the “Atlas Syndrome”, carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. He took his responsibilities to others very seriously and often took on more than his share of their troubles as well. Though he appeared (and indeed often was) rather passive, he possessed much quiet inner strength and the ability to flow with, endure, and emerge again and again from life’s inevitable adversities. He was apt to be surrounded by people who relied and depended upon him, and though he derived much satisfaction from providing, giving, and being needed, he could also let himself be drained emotionally and/or financially by taking care of other people and not caring sufficiently for himself.

Cayce had a very strong need for security and was a “safety-first” creature, disinclined to make sudden changes or to take new directions which involve risk and unpredictability. Any break from the past was very difficult for him and he needed a great deal of support when trying to make even healthy and positive changes in his life or habits.

Cayce was very retentive. He held on to (sometimes clung to) the people, places, and ways which he was familiar with. He also tended to both hold in and hold on to feelings, and he may have needed to learn to express and let go of old feelings and past conditioning.

Physically, he was apt to be hearty and substantial, with a tendency to be stout. Unless other astrological factors indicate otherwise, Cayce could also be downright lazy, especially when it comes to exercise. He instinctively chose comfort over challenge. (This is true in a broader sense as well, not only regarding physical exercise).

Cayce’s strengths included depth of feeling, patience, and generosity. The qualities he needed to cultivate included initiative, openness to change and new experience, and a stronger sense of self.

Fire is Weak (F,E,A,W Scores = 1,18,0,30):

Cayce was likely to be overly humble or unsure of himself and to look to others for inspiration, motivation, reinforcement, and approval. Tending to be somewhat passive, it would’ve been recommended that he learn how to take initiative and motivate himself.

A lack of warmth (either physically, emotionally, or both) may have been evident in him, which can show itself physically as a low energy level, paleness and lack of color in the skin, or a tendency to be easily chilled, and emotionally as a marked coolness or aloofness with little spiritedness, joyfulness, or enthusiasm for living. Eating warming, spicy foods, living in a warm, sunny place, and using fire in your daily life (lighting candles, using a wood stove or fireplace for heat) would’ve helped to balance him. Also, spending time with warm, cheerful, positive-minded people and developing a philosophy based on spiritual optimism could have stirred up his own zest of life.

Positively, Cayce was unlikely to be egocentric and have a capacity for great patience and peacefulness.

Air is Weak (F,E,A,W Scores = 1,18,0,30):

Cayce tended to lack the ability to analyze himself or his life in a detached, objective way. He felt and experienced but did not necessarily understand or reflect upon his experience, and thus found it hard to communicate or talk about it. Really taking in what someone else has to say could be hard for him – he did not readily adapt to new ideas or people, and as a result may have become inflexible or limit your experience of life. A broadening education and exposure to different cultures and types of people would have been very beneficial to him. Otherwise he would’ve been apt to be rigid and even prejudiced against those outside his own circle. (Arthritic conditions, poor flexibility, or poor circulation may reflect this).

Cayce also tended to distrust people who are free with words or to feel inferior to those who are more articulate and intellectual than himself. He learned much more readily by watching, doing, or apprenticing than by reading or by being told about something.

Cayce’s Approach Life and How He Appeared To Others

The following is a description of Cayce’s basic stance towards life, the way others saw him, the way he came across, the face he showed to the world.

Cancer Rising:

Cayce appeared gentle and soft, and acted rather reserved with others until he knew them well and felt it was safe to be open with them. He had a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and were deeply attached to the past: his heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is known and safe could be very painful and difficult for Cayce. He tended to cling and hold on to people, memories, possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, was very important to him.

Cayce approached life emotionally and subjectively and was sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around him. Instinctive and non-rational, he was often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for his actions. Something FELT right, or it didn’t.

Cayce’s emotions and personal loyalties tended to color his thoughts and opinions. He viewed life from a very personal perspective and often could not mentally detach himself from his own personal bias and prejudices. He was apt to be concerned primarily with how something affected him and those dear and close to him, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, he may have been very patriotic and feel that whatever “my country” does is right without really knowing much about the other nation’s policies or point of view. Put simply: if it is good for me and mine, it is good. If it is not good for me and mine, it is no good.

He was tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those he cared about, and had a very strong nurturing, motherly nature (regardless of your gender). Cayce empathized with others and intuitively sensed the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, he was easily moved by others’ pain, and was often the one others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.

Cayce’s moods fluctuated and changed frequently and he was sometimes open, sometimes withdrawn emotionally. He communicated non-verbally and appreciated a person who could pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.

He never forgot either kindness or unkindness shown to him.

Sun Trine Asc.:

Cayce radiated a sense of pride, self-assurance, and a definite awareness of his own importance. It was hard for others to ignore him when he was present, and his personality may have overshadowed or dominated the scene.

The Inner Self: Cayce’s Real Motivation

Ascendant in Cancer and Sun in Pisces:

In addition to Cayce’s strong personal loyalties and the devotion he felt for his nearest and dearest, he had great compassion and sensitivity to people of all walks of life. He had a gift for understanding and appreciating a wide variety of art styles and life styles.

His good heart and innocent, unsuspecting attitude could have made him a victim of others’ greed.

Sun in Pisces:

At heart Cayce was very gentle, impressionable, and receptive -a dreamer. The world of his imagination, feelings, and intuition were as real to him as anything in the outer world, though he may have had trouble verbalizing or interpreting his inner experiences in a way others could understand. Mystical, artistic, musical, emotional and imaginative, Cayce had a rich inner life, though he may have seemed rather unobtrusive and quiet outwardly. He usually kept to himself.

Cayce had great sensitivity and empathy with others, and he often sensed things psychically or intuitively which proved to be correct. He was tolerant, forgiving, and nonjudgmental, accepting people unconditionally regardless of their flaws, mistakes, or outward appearance. He had deep compassion for the suffering of any fellow creature and often felt others’ pain as if it were his own. He sympathized with the needy, the disadvantaged, the misfits of society. He was capable of giving selflessly, living a life of devoted and compassionate service to others, as a healer, physician, social worker, or minister. However, he tended to give indiscriminately, to let others take advantage of his kindness, and to encourage the weak to remain so by becoming dependent upon him. He had little sense of boundaries, of limits, of knowing when to say “no”. Moderation and self-discipline were not his strong points.

Cayce was a lover and a peacemaker rather than a fighter, and he tried to avoid open conflict. He would likely patiently ignore or “tune out” problems and hope they will go away by themselves, rather than directly confronting them, and he tended to lack the positive fighting spirit that is sometimes necessary to overcome challenges. He was fluid, open, nonresistant, and somewhat passive. He did things in a subtle, often covert, manner.

His gifts also have lied in the realm of the creative, artistic, or musical, for he had a great sensitivity, inspiration, and limitless imagination. He likely responded very strongly to beauty and to love.

Cayce’s faults included a tendency to be lazy and negligent, and to wallow in self-pity rather than taking strong, definite action to change his life for the better. He also tended to become so detached from his immediate environment that he lived in a disorderly, chaotic sort of hodgepodge, though this probably bothered those around him more than it bothered him.

Sun in 9th house:

World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expanded his intellectual horizons and broadened his understanding of the world are very attractive to him.

Cayce had a philosophical turn of mind and was concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupied his mind much of the time.

Sun Square Jupiter:

Cayce had big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. He tended to exaggerate, to promise more than is possible, and to misjudge through being overly optimistic. However, he never lost his hopes for the future. Restlessness and discontent with responsibilities and limitations in life could be troublesome for him.

Sun Conjunct Mercury/MC:

He had a harmonious balance between your body, soul and spirit. He likely enjoyed intellectual challenges from others, but tended to form his own mental attitudes and philosophies of life. He was interested in studying human nature and matters of health.

Sun Conjunct Saturn/MC:

Cayce’s courage to face life seems to have been a bit on the low side and he was prone to worry a lot. Fear of his own inadequacies could distort his perspective and deplete his strength to go on in the direction he chose.

Sun Conjunct N. Node/MC:

Maintaining contact with his friends and associates was very important to Cayce and he kept in touch with them through their shared interests. His friends were likely to be very supportive to him in everything he did.

Cayce’s Mental Interests and Abilities

Mercury in Pisces:

Cayce was more of a poet than a rational scientist, for his mind did not function in a strictly logical, linear fashion. The language of music, art, or poetry was natural to him, and he was also able to think in highly abstract and symbolic terms. Translating his thoughts and impressions into concrete, everyday language may have been difficult for him at times and consequently he may have appeared less intelligent or at least less quick-witted and verbal than others. This would have been especially true of him as a child, and he probably daydreamed a good deal also. Cayce was intuitive and able to sense what others’ thoughts and feelings were, even before they said anything to him. He often formed an opinion about a person or situation without much factual knowledge of them, and his impressions were usually correct. Cayce could be somewhat absent-minded and he became so immersed in his own thoughts that he overlooked things in his immediate, tangible environment. He was extremely open-minded and believed that anything is possible. Intangible or spiritual forces seemed just as real to him as anything in the concrete world. His imagination and his sympathetic understanding of other people were two of his greatest gifts.

Mercury in 8th house:

The mysterious and the unknown fascinated him and he investigated the supernatural or something that is hidden or taboo. He needed to know what was going on behind the scenes. Cayce was also deeply curious about or astute about economic, political, or social power, big business, and the motives and powers behind the social facade.

Moon Sextile Mercury:

Cayce had talent for establishing rapport and communicating with people, great personnel skills, and he was adept at dealing with the public. He communicated concern, interest, and the ability to listen, which encouraged people to open up and confide in him even if they do not know him well. He created closeness with others by talking to them (even gossiping will do), or by writing intimate, personal letters. Women felt he understood them.

Mercury Conjunct Venus:

He appreciated aesthetics and had a fine sense of form, design, and beauty. He could have developed considerable technical skill as an artist, designer, craftsman, or creative writer. Cayce could have also sold objects of beauty – artistic products, cosmetics, jewelry, etc.

Cayce had the ability to please and harmonize well with others and tend to ameliorate relationships between people. His sense of humor, tact, and personal charm were of great benefit to him in any work with people on a one-to-one level.

Mercury aspects Venus and Mars:

He could also be very direct, even brutally frank, in the way he communicated.

Mercury aspects Moon and Mars:

Cayce’s desire to make a point sometimes overrided his receptivity to others’ views. He could be a good listener but often it was hard for him not to speak out.

Mercury Sextile Mars:

Cayce had a sharp tongue and ready wit, and enjoyed intellectual competition, problem solving, and demanding intellectual work. In a debate, he knew how to drive his point home. Cayce also possessed quick reflexes and dexterity and could be an excellent tennis or racquetball player. Any sport which involves a dynamic exchange between the players would have a suitable for him.

Mercury aspects Moon and Saturn:

Although he was perceptive and attuned to the personal, human side of any issue, he was also capable of considerable intellectual detachment and objectivity. Cayce combined the qualities of being subjective and intuitive with a rational, analytical approach. Cayce had an introverted frame of mind and he tended to dissect or deeply analyze his own and other people’s inner lives and experiences.

Mercury Conjunct Saturn:

His mind was serious and deep, and he would always offer an opinion on any matter until he had thoroughly considered and studied it. Cayce had excellent powers of concentration and enjoyed studying or thinking deeply in solitude. Cayce had an aptitude for research or doing mental work which requires precise, organized thinking, attention to detail, and a methodical approach. Cayce was conservative and something of a skeptic, and may have been narrow-minded and closed to new ideas, especially if there was no concrete proof or scientific verification of them. Socially, he was rather reserved, uncommunicative, and uncomfortable with light, frivolous conversation.

Mercury Conjunct Moon/Mars:

Cayce was impatient, a bit nervous and easily irritated. Although he was sensitive to criticism, he could also be insensitive to the feelings of others.

Mercury Conjunct Venus/N. Node:

Cayce had a strong desire to keep in contact with like-minded people and tended to discuss love problems with them. Cayce seemed to be especially drawn to children and young people and was always welcomed and appreciated by them.

Mercury Conjunct Jupiter/Pluto:

Cayce had the ability to influence others to his way of thinking and could have done well in a propaganda campaign. Cayce thought in big dimensions and had a gift for speaking. Cayce was interested in subjects that encompassed a larger view of the world.

Mercury Conjunct Saturn/N. Node:

Cayce formed his own conclusion about things and may have had some difficulty in exchanging his thoughts and ideas with others, although they regarded his ideas as having a good foundation. Most of his conversations tended to have a serious overtone.

Cayce’s Emotions: Moods, Feelings, Romance

Moon in Taurus:

Cayce was even-tempered and peace-loving, he was not easily ruffled or given to emotional displays. Cayce had a calming effect on more high-strung or volatile people, and an emotional steadiness that others find soothing. Though gentle and not easily provoked, he was tremendously stubborn and will resist any change which requires an emotional adjustment, such as changes in his home life or marriage.

Cayce sought security and loyalty in love, was extremely devoted to his loved ones, and provided a warm, nurturing atmosphere for them. However, he tended to cling and seek to keep others from changing.

A great deal of physical affection, closeness, and touching was essential to his well-being, and he had a tendency to overindulge in sensual comforts and pleasures. At times he substituted food for emotional comfort and love.

Moon in 10th house:

Cayce worked well with the public and had an instinct for what the public wanted and would respond to. Having a “nest” was not especially important to him, and he may have invested more of his emotional energy into his career or public life than in his private life. Providing for and caring for others in a professional capacity was very likely.

Moon Trine Mars:

Cayce was assertive and confront difficulties in a direct, no-nonsense sort of way. Cayce could not tolerate self-pity or passivity, and he could be rather brusque with others’ emotional problems. “Stop crying and DO something about it” might have been his motto.

Moon aspects Mars and Saturn:

Although he could get hot under the collar rather easily, he also had a certain degree of emotional self-control and composure which enabled him to rein in some of his more aggressive tendencies.

Moon Sextile Saturn:

Cayce was dedicated to the people he cared about and conscientious about meeting his responsibilities, especially to family. Family solidarity and cohesiveness were very important to him and so, therefore, were the traditions, rituals, and memories that keep the bonds strong.

Cayce was apt to do more than his fair share in the family, to go the extra mile, but this was satisfying rather than burdensome to him for the most part.

Venus in Pisces:

Tremendously soft-hearted and sympathetic, he gave very selflessly and devotedly to those he loved and often allowed others to become overly dependent upon him. More compassionate than passionate, he may have become romantically involved with someone because they needed love and he wanted to help them, rather than out of mutual pleasure or attraction.

Cayce was drawn to sensitive, imaginative, gentle souls -poets, musicians, dreamers – or to someone he felt he could have a deep spiritual relationship with. Cayce idealized love and had a very beautiful, romantic vision of what love could be.

Venus in 8th house:

Cayce craved very intense, deep, emotional relationships, and would even prefer a stormy, tumultuous relationship to one which is smooth but lacking vitality and passion. Cayce loved wholeheartedly and expected all-consuming, total devotion and attention from his partner. Casual, light relationships held no appeal for him.

Venus Conjunct Saturn:

Intimacy did not come easily to him and he may have appeared cold or unfeeling to others due to his emotional reserve and caution. Perhaps due to painful relationships and separations in his early life, he did not trust others very easily and it took a long time to take down all of his barriers and defenses. Cayce may have felt that he had few friends or people that really cared about him.

Venus Conjunct Mars/Pluto:

Cayce had a very erotic and sexual nature and often may have found himself drawn to another person by a kind of inner compulsion. Cayce could become quite obsessed by someone and had a tendency to control and manipulate his loved ones.

Cayce’s Drive and Ambition: How He Achieved His Goals

Mars in Capricorn:

Cayce was serious about his ambitions, and disciplined, dedicated, and tenacious in pursuing his objectives. His drive and energy was directed toward practical material accomplishment and achieving concrete results. Cayce also strived to be in a position of authority and social influence; he enjoyed being the person who is in command.

Cayce was hard-working and capable of foregoing immediate comfort in order to achieve his long-range goals. Cayce could easily become a workaholic and was very responsible and conscientious about doing a thorough job.

Realistic and pragmatic, he was an excellent strategist. Cayce attained success by formulating a conservative and workable plan and following through with it. Cayce was not a gambler when it came to attaining his goals; he depended on his own efforts and perseverance rather than good fortune. Cayce had a natural shrewdness and instinct for business or organizational management.

Mars in 6th house:

Cayce expected to work hard for anything he accomplish and he had no patience for people who didn’t pull their own weight. Work was a passion for he at times, and he pushed himself too hard. Cayce could be too demanding of the people he worked with also.

If his energy was not invested in a job or career, he could become a fanatic about his health, and he may have exercised or “worked out” vigorously and perhaps excessively.

Mars Sextile Saturn:

Conscientious, responsible, and serious about his work, he accomplished a great deal through his dedication. Cayce was the person who followed through, quietly sustained the effort, and kept on going in spite of tedium, setbacks, or dry spells. This was often the key to his success. However, he was humble about his accomplishments and contributions, and may thus not received the recognition or recompense he deserved.

Mars Square MC:

Cayce was intensely competitive, and may have engaged in furious battles of will, numerous conflicts, and possible public controversy, on his way to gaining his objectives. Cayce could be drawn to activities that were dangerous, in the line of fire, so to speak. Cayce put himself on the line. Anger or recklessness could be his downfall.

MC Conjunct Sun/Neptune:

Cayce was sensitive to everything around he and soaked up experiences like a sponge. Cayce needed to avoid becoming depressed when things did not go his way. Cayce also needed to overcome being somewhat timid and to build up his own self-image.

MC Opposition Jupiter/Asc.:

Cayce had a strong desire to acquire wealth and may had the good fortune to live in affluent circumstances. His pleasant and harmonious personality made him very popular, and he was like to have a large circle of friends.

Growth and Expansion: Areas That Cayce Enjoyed

Jupiter in Capricorn:

Cayce had an innate shrewdness, and the ability to develop a clear strategy and follow it carefully in order to reach his goals. Cayce also had a natural sense of order, structure, and self-discipline. Cayce was likely to excel, both because he was ambitious and because it is very important to he to do a professional job, no matter what field he was in, or how humble the task.

Jupiter in 6th house:

Cayce had a positive and constructive attitude toward work and what other people might consider drudgery. Cayce enjoyed helping people improve their lives, and the more service he rendered, the more benefits and rewards he found coming back to him. Promoting health in some manner was a very good avenue for him.

Jupiter Trine Neptune:

Cayce was very broad-minded and tolerant, and he had a rich, colorful imagination. Cayce did not struggle with life as much as most people; he was inclined to follow the path of least resistance.

Jupiter Opposition Moon/Uranus:

Cayce had good vision and foresight and his aspirations and objectives were likely to be aimed high. A certain element of luck seemed to surround him, and he was both lucky and successful in his enterprises.

Areas That Challenged Cayce Or Were Difficult For Him

Saturn in Pisces:

Cayce often had a sense of longing or homesickness for something he could not name or specify, and he may have had both a great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology.

Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or over-sensitivity was an important task for him.

Saturn in 8th house:

Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may have plagued him. Cayce strongly resisted changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which made them much harder for him.

On another level entirely, he was very careful about joining forces, and especially his material resources, with others. Cayce wanted to keep his own and other people’s property and assets very distinct.

Saturn Conjunct Mercury/Venus:

His attitude toward life was quite serious and he was very thorough. Cayce had the need to be by himself and think out everything very carefully before he take action. Cayce may have enjoyed doing some type of creative art work shaped from hard or heavy materials.

Saturn Conjunct Venus/N. Node:

Around others he was somewhat humble and shy and preferred to be by hismelf. Cayce tended to limit his contact with others and associate only with like-minded people. Cayce was inclined to be cool and reserved even toward those he loved.

Saturn Conjunct Jupiter/Pluto:

At times circumstances seemed to be pushing against him, and he may have had to withstand severe challenges. Cayce probably had to work harder than others in order to succeed, turning him hard and cold-hearted in his decisions because of it.

Unconcsious Patterns of Behavior Which Cayce Would Instinctively and Habitually Revert To When Under Stress

Node in Pisces:

Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion would have help counterbalance his deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, he was apt to try to rigorously analyze and to focus on what needed to be corrected or improved, and he could easily become problem-oriented, losing sight of the big picture and of what is working.

Node in 8th house:

Cayce was most likely to wrestle with these issues in relationships that were more than superficial or casual – in particular where he and another had merged emotionally, legally, or financially. Cayce would have seen these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there was a mutual dependency on one another. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources was also a part of this.

Node Conjunct Mercury:

“Work smarter, not harder” might have been a motto for him.  Writing, teaching, recording, transcribing, dialoguing, negotiating, mediating, communicating, or facilitating clear communication would be significant activities for him to pursue.

Node Conjunct Venus:

Learning to give and receive affection, love, and pleasure would have been beneficial to Cayce. Learning to respond to, appreciate, and create beauty, art, harmonious surroundings and relationships. Being aware of aesthetics and doing things in a gracious, pleasing manner. Enjoying life, nurture friendships, and cultivating his ability to love and to receive love.

Node Conjunct Saturn:

Developing self-discipline and learn to handle responsibility better would have benefitted Cayce. He shouldered an inordinate amount of responsibility and burdens which at times limit his activities and opportunities in life. This was a maturing and ultimately strengthening process, however. Cayce was also likely to be given positions of tremendous responsibility, whether he really wanted such job or not, usually because he had made real effort and some sort of substantial contribution.

There may have been considerable obstacles in his path – more adversity than others seem to face – and his task was to learn to understand pressure and persevere.

Node Conjunct Moon/Mars:

Cayce cooperated with others in a vigorous and energetic way. His motto seems to have been “one for all and all for one”, and he felt strongly connected with others. In fact, he looked upon other people as necessary for a worthwhile life.

Originality and Imagination

Areas Where Cayce Was Creative, Unique, Unstable, or Compulsive

Uranus in 1st house:

Cayce was an unconventional and innovative person, and he was seen as a rebel, reformer, or highly unusual in his manners, appearance, or attitudes. Cayce enjoyed being unpredictable, and he did not conform to the standards that other people had set. Above all, he was an individual, and he did what he pleased regardless of customs and norms. His environment and life circumstances may have changed frequently and abruptly.

Neptune in 10th house:

Cayce was a very idealistic person, and he want to see his ideals, hopes, and dreams made concrete and real in the everyday world. Cayce was driven to put his ideals into action.

When young he may have been rather aimless or confused about his place in the world. In early adult life it is likely that he struggled to find ways to express his imagination, fantasies, and ideals in his career. Work that involved compassionate service (such as medicine or the ministry) may be his calling. If he lacked personal integrity and honesty, he quickly went to the opposite extreme and he could con others through dishonesty and trickery. Music, art, film-making or entertainment was also areas in which he was well-suited.

Pluto in 11th house:

Cayce may have had a deep aversion to groups, associations, clubs, or organizations of any kind. Any such group he became involved in is likely to be either for intense personal growth, change, and healing, or centered around social change and revising society in some manner.

Neptune Conjunct Pluto/MC:

Cayce was inclined to be very imaginative and likely to have occasional clairvoyant visions. But he should beware of strange pursuits that could lead him on the wrong path and eventual disappointments.

Pluto Conjunct Venus/Asc.:

Cayce seemed to had a powerful influence on everyone and others was strongly attracted to him. Cayce had a great need for attention or flattery and may have been a bit fanatic in love. His love experiences were likely to be very deep and intense.

Generational Influences: Cayce’s Age Group

The Subconscious and Emotional Drive of Cayce’s Age Group

Pluto in Taurus:

Cayce was part of a 30-year group of people who were highly motivated by practical concerns. There was a very strong psychological need to feel that there is a firm foundation and a solid basis for one’s life. There was an irresistible urge to make sure that the basics were taken care of and everything was built on a solid foundation. Consequently, his generation worked hard to improve the economy, ensure adequate food supplies, maintain and build roads and buildings, increase productivity, and develop other facilities that were essential foundations for a healthy, thriving economy.

There was a strong tendency to measure the value of something by its utilitarian value. For example, in education and research the emphasis was on ideas of practical value and there was little support for more purely theoretical research.

His generation was pragmatic and productive, and was driven by a need to build and DO things. This concern with practical affairs often becamesunbalanced, and a rampant materialism with little regard for humanitarian, ethical, and spiritual values often developed in his age group.

There was also a strong sensual craving in his age group, and a great deal of emphasis was placed on physically comfortable surroundings and good food. Romance was particularly important to his age group, and a great emphasis was also placed on the physical attractiveness of the opposite sex.

A small minority of members of his age group were likely to be uncomfortable with the practical and materialistic atmosphere of the times, and consequently became alienated and antagonistic towards the social norm.

Uranus Square Pluto:

Cayce was also born during a period that lasted approximately 7 years and was characterized by extreme restlessness and an impatient, dynamic attitude towards life. Cayce was part of a group of people who could be agent provocateur for the counter cultural forces that demanded change and progress in society. Cayce did not tolerate being restricted by authority , and his age group rebelled with force and anger against oppressive situations.

The Ideals and Illusions of His Age Group

Neptune in Taurus:

Cayce was part of a 14-year group of people that was very practical and down-to-earth in their religious philosophy and spiritual outlook. His age group incorporated its ideals and visions into everyday life, and investd more time and energy than other generations did in beautification projects, developing parks and recreation areas, and preserving beautiful or unique natural wildlife areas. Building construction was also done with careful attention to the aesthetic quality, and his generation found it difficult to understand how other age groups could erect buildings with so little aesthetic appeal.

His age group did not speculate a great deal about spiritual and metaphysical matters. Cayce was more involved in utilizing his imagination and intuition in practical, artistic ways rather than exploring metaphysical issues. Some of the art and music of his generation is among the world’s most beautiful.

What is New and Different in Cayce’s Age Group

Uranus in Leo:

Cayce was part of a 7-year group of people who were unusually self-willed, and inwardly self-assurred. Cayce was part of a group that defied authority and insisted on having its own way. Parents and school teachers found that it was extremely difficult to discipline his age group. Governments that were repressive to individual expression and freedom met a great deal of resistance from his age group, and he tended to rise up against any form of tyranny and oppressive rule.

Annular Solar Eclipse – September 1, 2016

Annular Solar Eclipse – Sep 01, 2016 Washington, D.C.

Annular Solar Eclipse - Sep 01, 2016

 

The Annular Solar Eclipse on September 1st, 2016 at 9° 21′ Virgo will likely be a major watershed event for those nations and world leaders that get energized by it.  For this eclipse will be making a number of challenging aspects, making it very strong and compelling in its impact on the world stage. The Eclipse makes an opposition to Neptune, square to both Mars and Saturn,  and a sesquiquadrate to Uranus.

Saturn-Neptune Square

The Saturn-Neptune square alignment that has been active on the world since Fall of 2014 is associated with

  • chronic social stagnation,
  • protracted and debilitating situations,
  • partisan political malaise,
  • lack of clarity in national leadership,
  • growing unemployment,
  • chronic underemployment, and
  • the rise of collectivist solutions for many nations intractable problems.

Economically, Saturn-Neptune is historically associated with

  • deflation,
  • distorted markets,
  • artificially suppressed interest rates,
  • massive capital misallocation,
  • lack of price discovery,
  • back-door bailouts, and
  • financial bubbles.

So any distressed financial institutions and over leveraged market is likely face major difficulties, resulting in defaults and major market corrections.

Politically, Saturn-Neptune is historically linked with

  • scandal and
  • major reversals in power in political leadership often due to scandalous revelations.

Therefore, we can expect continued revelations and exposure of political corruption at the highest levels of government leading up to the General Election.

Mundane Horoscopes and the Sept. 1st Eclipse

A number of mundane horoscopes, including the natal chart of Prime Minister Erdogan of Turkey, Hillary Clinton (8:06 AM birth time), and the nations of Italy, Greece, and the USA Sibly Horoscope, will be energized and impacted by this eclipse.

Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan and the Eclipse

Recep Tayyip Erdoğan (born on February 26, 1954, at 4:25 AM in Istanbul, Turkey) has been the Prime Minister of the Republic of Turkey since March 14, 2003. The September 1st 2016 Solar Eclipse makes a direct hit to Erdogan’s natal Sun by opposition. As students of mundane astrology know, eclipses conjunct or opposite the Sun, Ascendant or Midheaven are very powerful. Eclipses on the Sun of national leader gives power, however eclipses opposing the Sun will take power away.  Therefore, with this eclipse we can expect another major political shake-up in Turkey with the prospect of Erdoğan falling from power in the coming months ahead.

Recep Tayyip Erdoğan Horoscope

Hillary Clinton and the Eclipse

Hillary Clinton 8 AM Horoscope

Democratic Nominee for President Hillary Clinton (born on October 26, 1947, at 08:06 AM in Chicago, Illinois) also has the September 1st Solar Eclipse within striking distance to her natal Midheaven (4 degrees’ orb, within the 5-degree orb range). Her 6 Pisces Midheaven, along Solar Arc Uranus at 6 Pisces, and Progressed Mars at 7 Pisces, will be activated and energized.

Bi-Wheel Hillary Clinton - Solar Eclipse Sept 1st 2016Transiting Neptune will be directly opposing the Hillary’s Uranus/Ascendant midpoint and opposing her progressed Mars, indicating that we can expect sudden undermining revelations and developments as a result of former associations with foreign countries, along with a modest but significant loss of political momentum that set up the prospect of a major shakeup in her Presidential campaign team and strategy as the General Election begins to ramps up.

Clinton’s Presidential Campaign

The eclipse testimonies do not augur well for a successful prosecution of national campaign, as the country remains in persistent bad moon in such an unpredictable political year. The testimonies from the eclipse also indicate that Hillary’s campaign will remain in defensive mode and “off-message” with undecided voters, as anxiety grows within her base. The testimonies also augur that she will be unable to effectively distinguish herself from her unorthodox political rival Donald Trump who is more effective at capturing media attention and dominating the headlines and internet activity on almost daily basis.

Also, another concern facing Team Clinton will be the increasing voter enthusiasm gap as the campaign heads into the fall — Trump got more votes in the GOP primary than any candidate in history, while Hillary received fewer votes than she did in 2008 when she lost against Barack Obama.

The eclipse testimonies also indicate that we can expect further shocking revelations from Wikileaks, as founder Julian Assange told CNN this week that his website will release “a lot more material” that could negatively impact the election for Hillary Clinton.

Hillary is treading a different path toward the White House than her past three predecessors: Barack Obama, George W. Bush and her husband Bill Clinton, whom all presented themselves as agents of change in seeking the White House. The last president to be in a place similar to Clinton’s was George H.W. Bush, who was effectively seeking a third-term extension of the Reagan presidency. The eclipse hit to Hillary’s Midheaven along with other transits, indicates that she will have problems with reunifying a very diverse electorate (like Barack Obama effectively did in 2008), requiring her to dramatically change strategy and “core message” to voters midstream. This will be necessary in order to defend her base in the 7 Key Battle Ground States, as the craving for change continues to grow and intensify within the nation.

At the very least we can expect the eclipse to weaken and diminish Hillary’s iconic status which is the only clear advantage she has in the Democratic Party and her voter base. If her position is weakened going forward, her entire “left-of-center” Obama coalition risks collapse. However, most political pundits do not see this as a real possibility.

But the eclipse portents signify that Hillary’s prospects are more like “boom or bust” as the General Election campaign goes into its homestretch in late October.

U.S. Horoscope and the Eclipse

The September 1st Solar Eclipse makes a direct hit to the U.S. natal Ceres and Uranus and the Sibly ASC Degree (United States of America, July 4th 1776 5:10:59 LMT, Philadelphia, PA). The Eclipse occurs in the Mundane 9th House. This house is therefore connected to foreign relations. Therefore, it’s possible we may see the emergence of a foreign policy crisis that could take place during the course of the U.S. General Election. The Mars-Saturn conjunction of the Eclipse chart sits right on the Sibly Ascendant opposing natal Uranus.

Bi-Wheel USA Sibly and the Annular Solar Eclipse - Sep 01, 2016

According to astrologer Charles Jayne, the Eclipse will activate and manifest its archetypal power 90 days prior and remain in effect for at least 6 months afterward. On August 23, the Mars-Antares-Saturn conjunction at 8 degrees of Sagittarius will square the Eclipse point, acting as a trip-hammer setting off a daisy-chain burst of explosive and forceful archetypal energy on the world stage. The results of which will be disruptive to the status-quo and the pervasive normalcy bias that has infected much of the populace and collective.

U.S. Economy and the General Election

Thus we can expect a disruption in the exchange markets and deflationary developments in the general economy. Therefore, we can expect a major downward revision of U.S. GDP growth rate, indicating that the U.S. economy will be barely hanging on by its fingernails from falling into a full-blown recession. This will have a bearish impact on the stock market, and will dampen Hillary’s campaign prospects when it becomes clear that President Obama remains solidly on track to be the only president in all of U.S. history to never have a single year when the economy grew by at least 3 percent. Thus we can anticipate with the eclipse making multiple hits on the U.S. Sibly Horoscope that things are likely take a sharp turn down in the coming months, having a major impact on middle-class families, which may be enough to cost the Democrats the General Election.

Saturn-Neptune and the U.S. Economy

The ongoing Saturn-Neptune square alignment that is a main component of this eclipse indicates that we will see a major reversal in sentiment on the part of investors and financial institutions as it becomes clear that secular growth stocks and funds cannot outrun a stagnant, dysfunctional, and deflationary economy. Therefore, we will likely witness a change in emotional sentiment of extreme greed that has driven the markets over the past several years, to be replaced swiftly by extreme fear.

Therefore, we may witness the dramatic collapse of the Exchange Markets along with a
a liquidity crisis (Saturn-Neptune) that will expose the long-running central bank con job of where central banks buy public debt from the inventories of the 23 prime dealers and other market speculators or directly from the U.S. treasury, along with the monetization of the public debt, in order to keep the  markets artificially propped up since the end of the Great Recession in June of 2009.

Deutsche Bank and the Eclipse

The Eclipse will also make a direct hit on horoscope of Deutsche Bank. Deutsche Bank AG, founded 146 years ago (January 22, 1870 Berlin, Germany), is a German global banking and financial services company with its headquarters in the Deutsche Bank Twin Towers in Frankfurt. It has more than 100,000 employees in over 70 countries, and has a large presence in Europe, the Americas, Asia-Pacific, and the emerging markets. In 2009, Deutsche Bank became the largest foreign exchange dealer in the world with a market share of 21 percent. Also, the company is a component of the Euro Stoxx 50 Stock Market Index.

Deutsche Bank AG Horoscope

The eclipse opposes the Deutsche Bank Venus at 10 Pisces. The eclipse also conjuncts Deutsche Bank Solar Arc Neptune. Transiting Neptune is also conjunct Venus, and both Mars and Saturn squares it as well. As noted earlier the effect of Solar Eclipses are noticeable 90 days prior to the event, and we can see this action with the Deutsche Bank’s announcement of major fall in revenue and income. Deutsche Bank’s share price fell by 5.3 percent in early trading on July 27th after it announced second-quarter net income was down 98 percent from the same period in the previous year, to 20 million euros ($22 million).

As it approaches its 5th Saturn Return that will occur near the Total Solar Eclipse of August 2017, Deutsche Bank’s balance sheet fell some 48 percent.  Deutsche Bank shares now trade for two-thirds less than tangible book value which is a steeper discount than even during the depths of the financial crisis. Also, Deutsche Bank is sitting on a large pile of non-performing loans and has $72.8 trillion in derivatives contracts — an amount that is twenty times greater than German GDP — and has a leverage ratio of 40:1. Keep in mind that Lehman at the time of its collapse in September 2008, had a leverage ratio of 31:1.

The Solar Eclipse augurs that Deutsche Bank’s could be the first Too Big To Fail bank to collapse since 2008. This would result in a massive liquidity crisis in Europe and across the globe and to an unwinding of the derivatives.  However, unlike the collapse of Lehman Brothers in 2008, in which the Western Central banks were able to contain (due to the $16 trillion in bailout funds injected into the banks worldwide by the Federal Reserve), a failure of Deutsche Bank would trigger a systemic banking contagion the likes of which the world has never seen.


FOR THE RECORD…

  • I am more committed to the truth and outcome of political contest than my own political expectations or preferences.
  • I call it as I see it, not as I want it.
  • I have been a registered Independent since 1984.
  • I am a political atheist; I don’t believe in political parties.

Still Underestimating Donald Trump?

To everyone who has been telling me since December 2015 that my astrologically-based predictions are false and that Donald Trump will fade and go away, I want you to watch this short video below.

Almost every so-called world class astrologer predicted a Jeb Bush nomination, telling me over and over again that I would be wrong. A few have told me repeatedly that I would eat crow when Trump got out of the presidential race.

Even though Trump’s astrological portents were compelling and the mundane astrology indicators were showing the emergence of a powerful “dark horse candidate,” ALL astrologers commenting on the political race told me in December that Trump was essentially a carnival barking, rabble rousing, malcontent candidate who would not be taken seriously by the American electorate and would politically implode and fade away before the end of February.

I am not aligned with Ann Coulter whatsoever, but in regards to Trump’s electability, we shared the same conclusion.

2016 Presidential Election Winner: Analysis

As the Primary race transitions into a General Election campaign, I have to say something before a certain astrologer puts words in my mouth about the election. So please bear with me here.

Based on my political black box model forecast projections and the excellent mundane forecasting work of Theodore White, it’s highly likely Trump will win the popular vote.  (Surprised? Why?)  However, I’m holding off on making a prediction that Trump will win the electoral college vote and go on to be President for now because of the Democrats’ structural demographic advantage in Pennsylvania and the Rust Belt Swing States like Michigan, Wisconsin, and Ohio.

That being said, one scenario that is possible — based on the Jupiter-Pluto square alignment this November — is the possibility that the Electoral College winner will not receive the plurality of the nationwide popular vote.

In elections, a majority (or popular vote) happens when more than half of the electorate votes for one candidate. For example, if a candidate gets 50.1% of the vote, she gets a majority. A plurality happens when less than half vote for a candidate that wins because the vote is split among more than two candidates.

Now, before you think this rarely happens, and just won’t happen again because Skeptical Political Astrologers keeping telling you this, keep in mind the following:

  • 2000: Al Gore won the popular vote but George W. Bush won the electoral vote.
  • 1888: Grover Cleveland won the popular vote but Benjamin Harrison won the electoral vote.
  • 1876: Samuel Tilden won the popular vote but Rutherford B. Hayes won the electoral vote.
  • 1824: Andrew Jackson won the popular vote but John Quincy Adams won the electoral vote.

Also of note, due to third party candidates, the following Presidents won with a plurality, but not majority of the popular vote:

  • 1996: Bill Clinton
  • 1992: Bill Clinton
  • 1968: Richard Nixon
  • 1960: John F. Kennedy
  • 1948: Harry Truman
  • 1916: Woodrow Wilson
  • 1912: Woodrow Wilson
  • 1892: Grover Cleveland
  • 1884: Grover Cleveland (He won a plurality 3 times in a row, but still lost the EC in 1888)
  • 1880: James Garfield
  • 1860: Abraham Lincoln (with 4 major contenders, his 39.8% was the lowest plurality ever. Technically, John Quincy Adams won with a lower percentage of the vote, 30.9%, but the plurality was held by the loser Andrew Jackson at 41.3%)
  • 1856: James Buchanan
  • 1848: Zachary Taylor
  • 1844: James K. Polk

Now, if the vote between Hillary and Trump is fairly close, say 51/49, the Electoral College can give the advantage to the 49, which it is designed to do, to give an advantage to the small states.

Based on this fact, it is likely that Trump will do better in small states than in the larger ones so that any Electoral College upset is more likely to be in his favor than against.

To conclude, I think it’s fair to say this is Trump’s election to win and Hillary’s election to lose, and any astrologer telling you otherwise is just pontificating and making a prediction by proclamation rather than looking at the mundane astrological portents and political secular polls and economic trends.

Conclusion:
This is going to be either a Reagan-Carter 1980 race or a Bush-Gore 2000 race at this point in the campaign.
