The Curse of Dead Horse Canyon: Cheyenne Spirits

An Epic Award Winning Cross-Cultural Novel by Marcha Fox and Pete Risingsun

Review of Steven Forrest's "The Book Of Neptune"

"If you feel as if you've lost your footing, are sinking in quicksand or adrift on a large body of water with no land in sight, there's a good chance that Neptune is involved.  If that's the case, I can't recommend this book highly enough." --Whobeda
(Brings something new into your life)
(Ending, culmination, or shift to a new phase)
Date: 8 August 2021 Date: 22 August 2021
Position: 16:14 Leo (Strongest influence for those born ~9 August) Position: 29:37 Aquarius (Strongest influence for those born ~22 August)
Natural House: 1st Natural House: 7th
Influences of the 1st house include just about anything that affects you personally since this is the house of your personality and how others see you (or how you "dawn" on people), suggesting they may see you in a new way. This is a time when you might be inclined to show a different side of yourself than those around you expect. Self-actualization is emphasized, identifying who you really are, and what you want out of life. This can be the ultimate "new start." This is probably your birthday month (unless it was in the end of January), so it's time for your solar return. That chart which reflects when the Sun returned to its natal position indicates what you can expect in the year ahead. You can learn more and order one here. 7th House influences focus on relationships including your significant other, close friends and relatives, business partners, business professionals, cliental, competitors and open enemies, which is where you're likely to see a culmination or shift to a new phase.  Someone may exit from your life or a relationship shift to a new phase or intensity. Issues involving someone who occupies this zodiacal house may come to a head as well, making it a cosmically favorable time to address such things.

This month's New Moon on 8 August has quite a few aspects, suggesting a rather lively and eventful time. Of course August is typically a busy time as kids get ready to return to school. Since the powers-that-be can't seem to make up their mind as far as lockdowns, masks, etc. are concerned, no doubt there will be some confusion, which is shown by the ongoing sextile between Neptune and Pluto. Neptune is the master of deception and confusion while Pluto relates to power, control, corruption, and so forth. So you can see with these two in cahoots it's no wonder things out there are a hot mess.

Making this sextile even more interesting is the fact that it provides the base of an aspect pattern known as a yod or finger of god, which tends to have a certain amount of fate attached to it. Its base, as noted is the Pluto-Neptune sextile while the rest of the aspect pattern is provided by dual quincunxes which meet on Mercury in Leo. A quincunx typically indicates a change of direction, adjustment, or Catch-22, so two of them ending at a common point suggests they will do some yielding to that planet's energy. Mercury rules communications and data, so this yod suggests information may slap these two upside their cosmic heads, clearing up a few things. If you've been paying attention at all to trustworthy news sources (which in case you missed the memo is NOT the mainstream media) you've no doubt noticed that the truth about the COVID plandemic (not a typo) is gradually coming out. Multiple knowledgeable witnesses have testified that it was NOT an accident and certainly didn't come from a bat to a person, but was the result of "gain of function" research in the Wuhan lab and it was no accident it got unleashed on the world.

The supposed vaccine is another questionable situation. I personally know at least one person who came down with a bad case of COVID from the vaccine and personally know another who got COVID in spite of receiving the vaccine. This is another area where you would do well to look for information beyond the usual (literal) channels. Experts out there are trying to get the truth out and the fact many are being censored should be a cause for alarm. Who would not want the truth to get out? Think about it and what their motive might be. The asteroid Wuhan is sextile Chiron where Chiron, in case you're not aware, is the "wounded healer" who's afflicted with a wound that will never entirely heal, but is charged to help others with a similar affliction. Will this bring healing or more of that delta-variant? The question everyone needs to be asking is why known cures have been suppressed in favor of pushing a vaccine that is killing people?

Retrograde Jupiter, who's gone back into Aquarius due to retrograde motion, is opposing Mercury, which will have some bearing on how effectively this yod functions. I've been told this is a "boomerang yod," which makes sense because a planet opposing the eye is going to interfere with its ability to manifest. Jupiter retrograde typically relates to ethics issues. An opposition, as you would expect, relates to two opposing forces. The ideal is to find balance between the two or a suitable compromise. With Jupiter hanging out between Neptune and Pluto, however, I suspect this means that whatever truth comes out is going to be whitewashed  and prevent all the information from coming out in its most accurate and purest form. Big surprise, right?

The lunation itself is in wide opposition to Saturn in Aquarius. If you're looking at an opposition as a tug-o-war, then you would think that the two luminaries would have a bit more power than Saturn, who is retrograde and thus in rebuilding mode, yet in dignity in Aquarius, giving him some strength. The Sun, however, is also in dignity in Leo so I'm inclined to put my money on the lunation to prevail and bring something new. It's worth noting that the lunation is within range of a conjunction with Mercury, so might lend some assistance, bringing light to the situation. The lunation squaring Uranus suggests resistance to change, but again, my bet would be on the lunation to prevail, even if there's a lot of tension and a fight involved.

Venus also has a part in the yod, or at least some of the planets. She's in Virgo opposing Neptune where she's frowning on all the fog and deception. In Virgo she's not in a very good mood, but picky, critical, and perfectionistic. Thus, she's giving Neptune a real stink-eye while her trine to Pluto suggests a push for him to spill the beans on what's really been going on to clear the air once and for all.

Mars is the only planet sitting this one out, perhaps gearing up for a battle to come.


Uranus stations retrograde at 14:48 Taurus on 20 August, joining the other outer planets also doing the backstroke. Remember that a stationing planet pumps a lot of energy into that degree, which is what makes it notable. For the outer planets especially, since this effect can last for days or even months. In this case, if you have a planet at 14 degrees of any sign, you're likely to feel this one, not just on this day, but for quite a while. This is the planet of disruptions, distractions, sudden change, innovation, breakthroughs, freedom, and explosions. Fun, right? Okay, he's been at 14 degrees since 8 July. Due to going RX, he's going to remain at 14 until 4 October, at which time he'll back off to 13 degrees, though that is still "in orb" to whatever you have at 14. He goes direct in January, then makes it back to 14 on 22 April 2022 and moves on to 15 degrees on 9 May 2022. (I have natal Pluto at 14 degrees Leo so I am not exactly enchanted about this myself.)

The station chart has some interesting aspects. First of all, a tight conjunction between Mercury and Mars is trining Uranus, an aspect that is also in effect for the Full Moon two days later. Mercury, who rules communications and movement, is very well-placed in Virgo where he's both in dignity and exalted. Mars is all about taking action, and in Virgo this is going to be well-thought out, precise, and accurate. Their trine with Uranus suggests sudden change as a result of accurate information and precise action, hitting the bullseye, if you will. Mercury is still opposing Neptune, suggesting that ongoing battle for truth and facts versus deception, especially with Pluto and Neptune still in cahoots.

The Moon and Saturn are conjunct in Aquarius and being trined by Venus, even though the orb is a bit wide. Venus is in Libra where she is friendly, likes balance, and doesn't care for contention. If she has her way, she'll do what she can to get that conjunction to act nicely regarding any changes or reaction to news or events. The Sun is opposing Jupiter, which looks as if it will keep some of this from being a "big deal." Aquarius is the sign that watches over groups, networking, organizations, friends, and goals as the natural 11th house. While RX, Jupiter tends to relate to ethics issues. The Sun in Leo, wanting to bring attention to any issues, is thus likely to be forced to use a rather heavy filter.


The Full Moon on 22 August is the second one in a row to occur in Aquarius, i.e. last month's Full Moon was also in that sign. Thus, those of you born under that sign are getting a double-whammy in the 1st house, while everyone else is getting a second shot at dealing with issues associated with the house Aquarius represents in their chart, which is noted in the lunation table above. This lunation occurs in the 29th degree and Aquarius is a fixed sign. Some believe that the last degree of a fixed sign indicates a permanent ending. The lunation is conjunct Jupiter, which suggests this will be a big one. It suggests to me that something that should have ended last month didn't, so this is the second and last chance.

The trine from Mercury and Mars to Uranus mentioned above for the Uranus station is still in effect. At this point, however, Mercury is squaring Wuhan which implies this data dump is going to relate to the ongoing drama about the plandemic, origin of the virus, and all the controversy related to the vaccine, which isn't an actual vaccine in that it does not provide antibodies like those vaccines that have been proven over time. It's experimental with all sorts of unexpected (supposedly) side effects due to the mRNA component.

Venus, dignified in Libra, which she rules, is trining Saturn and also in partile trine with the North Node. This Grand Air Trine looks favorable for bringing something new. In general Venus, especially in Libra, is about relationships. If you are having any relationship issues, this is a time to do something about fixing them. The trine to Saturn retrograde suggests looking at responsibilities and obligations and perhaps rebuilding them. The North Node typically indicates something new on the way as something is left behind. While the Full Moon is generally an ending or culmination, it also indicates the shift to a new phase. Let's hope it's an improvement over what we've seen so far.
