Sometimes, I think on life through Astrology. I'm a group leader who help others do the same with the aid of Dr. Jeffrey Thompson's BrainFiteness Kit.
There are astrologers much more advanced than I am. So I wrote to them:
Anguish: Loss Father 12/28, Loss Minister 12/30 (Read 31 times)
My real father died 12/28/2012.
And the minister who kept fatherly love in my life, through his sermons, while I was in New York and my dad was in New Orleans, died 12/30/2012.
Is this Transiting Saturn opposing Natal Sun or is it more than that?

Of the 31 times read, one astrologer spoke up and saidSorry to hear of your losses. I would think your Sun tsquare Neptune Saturn triggered by transit Saturn and also your Chiron return in the 8th house-Neptune rules your 8th house and being the Sun Neptune opposition straddles your 4th and 10th houses shows around family/parent/father.

I wrote back
Tranquil (I'm blessed),
Thank you for the condolences.
Given my Mercury in Taurus, I'm not the fastest-witted person in the world (despite being born in the year of the Tiger). I say that because now, with your help, I have to self-identify as a Sun-Neptune-Saturn T-Square individual. (I'm thinking the naming convention is: the opposition is mentioned first (north to south and east to west followed by the square counter-clockwise from the bottom of the opposition).
I want to know, as I self-examine/self-diagnose, I should examine what happens to my T-Square. I would think obviously so, since I understand people with planets on angles should realize the significance of planets on angles as well as transits across angles.
Okay, I have a Saturn transit not only at the IC and at Neptune, that same transit is triggering/energizing the entire T-Square?
I truly need a coloring book of my natal chart. The planets could be a color legend. Neptune would be colored heavenly orange and my eighth house wedge would be colored heavenly orange. Taurus-Mercury is such a still bull feeding in a large field.
I'll come back to this later in the day.
~ ~ ~Well, I'm trying to collect all the Peace I can to face seeing my dad's body for the last time on Saturday before he's interred. Our place in a mausoleum is in the New Orleans area. Big community grief is different from the peace I can have on my own. I won't be able or would want to stop the disturbance of peace. People must grieve well for their hearts, minds, the loss to the community against memories of one who served the community well.
