The Astrology of Pagan Pride 2017
Here Is A Study In Interpreting  A  Specialized Type Of Horocope
The  Event Chart

By Dikki-Jo Mullen

Astrology, the celestial science, plays an important role in guiding the paths of those who would follow The Old Ways. The Wheel of the Year, marking the important craft observances, links to astrology as do the magical hours and the lunation cycle. Astrological patterns offer guidance and insight not only about individuals, but also about events as well. The event horoscope for the day selected to celebrate Pagan Pride in 2017 is an especially auspicious one. Saturday, September 3o, 2017 from 11am -5pm EDT, in Altamonte Springs, Florida is the date, time and place of what should surely prove to be a memorable gathering.
The “birth” of the event is the 11:00 am opening time. This is in the planetary hour of the Sun, which astrologers traditionally always select to assure a positive outcome. Growth, entertainment and a sense of well being prevail during a Sun hour. The ascendant (rising sign) is 24 degrees of Scorpio. This evokes a sense of depth and mystery, creating a connection with the inner planes and spirit guides. The Sun (the familiar zodiac sign we all know) is in Libra along with benevolent Jupiter and knowledge seeking Mercury. The 1oth and 11th houses of the event chart are activated by the placements in the affable, artistic and sociable sign of Libra. Group activities, learning experiences, worthwhile spiritual awakenings and an accent on the fine arts will set the tone. The Moon, which is the heavenly body closest to Earth and governs the flow of daily life, is in Aquarius. Aquarius is an air sign as is Libra. The Moon is applying to form a desirable 120 degree aspect called a trine to the Sun. The trine is called ‘the darling of the gods’ aspect in traditional astrology and is considered very favorable. The Aquarius Moon accents technology and metaphysics as well as originality. The Moon is in the 3rd house, accenting conversation as well as books. The Moon is waxing in the first quarter which favors healing and ‘white’ magical workings. Air elementals such as the fairies can be in attendance, with the strong accent on air signs in this chart.
Venus and Mars are in earthy Virgo in the 10th house. This shows hardworking vendors and some competitive situations. (Be sure to come by my own vendor table, at least to say hello.) Saturn is in Sagittarius in the 1st house. This shows much planning and effort involved by those creating the gathering. Also this placement accents familiars and other animals and their roles in the life of the witch. Uranus in Aries in the 5th house promises fun, maybe even a hint of romance, for some attendees. Pluto in Capricorn in the 2nd house brings some who see pagan related interests as a source of salable job skills. The North Moon node in Leo in the 9th house is intensely philosophical and spiritual. There might be some influences from the magical traditions of other lands in evidence. The 4th house shows the end of a matter in an event chart. Neptune and Chiron in Pisces are present here. This shows that many will be inspired and surprised by experiences they encounter at Pagan Pride 2017 with. Dreams and deep meditations can be a part of this. There can be some positive paranormal energies at the venue too, as the 4th house has a bearing on the “home”, the physical surroundings, of the building hosting Pagan Pride.
Overall this event chart appears to be most influential and worthwhile. Don’t miss out on the excitement, be sure to attend.
