Gestalt Your Astro

At 19, I went to an astrology conference. Well actually i gatecrashed it. Before Saturn Return, i operated almost purely in Uranian mode. Aqua Rising/Mars conjunct Uranus in the 8th, you understand. It was the first and last conference i ever went to for anything. (South Node in the 11th House f.y.i)

BUT i always remember the Astrological Gestalt session because they drew a massive big circle on the floor and then got different people to act out the chart. So Saturn went absolutely ape at the Venus he was squaring and the actors playing Mercury and Neptune huddled in the 12th House together drinking wine. It went on from there. The Pluto transit bit – where the Pluto character came out in a red cape and knocked over the Moon chick was particularly memorable.

Can you see how this just might evoke a better understanding of your chart?  In the absence of the resources available to hire your own theatre troupe to stage your chart and transits, you are supposed to just sort of imagine and do the dialogue between the players in your chart. You first find the closest aspects or the ones you think are most important and then you go for it. Planets/Sun/Moon etc that trine one another will naturally just sort of get along and have heaps in common but it’s the planets that barely want to talk to one another but HAVE to (your squares and oppositions or conjunctions between the most unlikely allies) that will deliver you the psych-juice you need.

So, what are you waiting for?  As always with D.I.Y. Astro, the more astro-erudite peeps will happily help out those less used to trawling through their charts. If you don’t have a chart, go visit Astrodienst…Then come back and start a conversation!

Hmmm….if my planets were people:

Saturn is like the “soup nazi” in my 7th house except with relationships and not actual soup. (catch some seinfeld on youtube if you don’t understand “soup nazi”.) matched up with psycho Chiron in the 5th and overly fussy Venus in Virgo who is squared dirty-old-man Neptune. Before I can even get a relationship, I have to run the gauntlet with these twerps.

But at least I have a 10th house stellium with Sun-Uranus-Mars-Pluto. If i had to gve them names:
The Sun: El Jefe
Uranus: The Circus Freak
Mars: Captain Super- Jock/Soldier
Pluto: Mr. Underworld

They are guaranteed that I will not go hungry or be bored in my job. Cappy Jupiter in the 2nd agrees. So yay!

Scorp Moon in the 12th says I need a lot of alone time and combined with Uranus-Sun means I do not play well with others (unless they are like me).

I was thinking something along these lines the other day when I was wearing my ‘I’m shagging a rock star’ coat. Not about theatre troops, but more about how the way I feel when I’m wearing that coat (70’s sheep skin knee length number complete with big cow fur cuffs, collar and trim, and swirly embroidery) and how it is a perfect manifestation of Saturn/cancer12th conjunct Leo/Mars rising, and the way it interacts with my Jupiter/Mid heaven Venus conduction.

OMG that is the best thing ever!! Something always wanted to know too. The above post woulda been much simpler had I used this. Completely shocking to me is the weighting on Neptune at 50. I didn’t know that this was my heaviest influence? But it makes sense in terms of my interests. I am not sure why it is the most weighty influence, apart from a trine with the Sun there is not much else I can perceive going on. Mercury is kinda obvious as a no.1 for you though!!

And here’s one for your Mercury:

Jacques Derrida ‘surmised that Artaud’s voice was de facto “stolen” from him, or rather, continually “soufflée” or prompted. The very moment that the words came out of his mouth or pen he could not recognize them as his
own any longer. There was a “thieving god” that filched every word from his lips and spoke it in his stead.’

I was literally obsessed with his work during my mid to late teens. Dada as well but esp Artaud hit a real cord in me. Funnily enough I used to write (or attempt) plays when I was 13 about abstract concepts and shapes in design personifying different elements of though. Then I made some puppet based art objects and sets to house them based on this theory in art school. Mainly paintings though, but I think the surrealists did it better 🙂 oscar slimmer’s ballet as well. Awesome.

Very interesting… Mercury is my highest also, at 14.9% Then surprisingly (to me, for some reason) Jupiter, at 10.9% – guess this has to do with the fact that Mercury & Jupiter are conjunct and share pretty much all the same aspects with other planets. I’ve definitely ALWAYS identified myself as a classic Mercurial type. Never imagined Jupiter would be second, but then again, it would make sense if I’m looking at it from strictly a spiritual standpoint. I am highly devoted to the spiritual above all else, but I am not ‘jolly,’ nor satisfied, ever… haha hence my confusion.… Read more »

Loads of trines, yes, but also LOADS of squares including: North Node square Sun and Ascendant, Venus square Pluto (which means, as Pluto is currently conjunct my Venus, Pluto is also currently squaring my Pluto).

Oh Mercury and the Moon are having a real D&M chit chat about the cosmos in the 10th house with a barrel of honey mead and a hookah pipe at the ready. Mercury is being very flirtatious and Moon having a hard time concealing her admiration for his wild ideas. They are talking too fast for anyone else to really understand and when Mercury uses big words like “concupiescent” Moon just swoons. All the other planets are trying to look busy with their own agendas but can’t help overhearing Moon’s bursts of delighted laughter.

The tail? Pluto and Moon at tug of war with Merc/Mars and Venus. When they exhaust each other and just let each other be, the tail relaxes and the kite flies …

I have a sort of “splay” chart, but the most important stuff is all along my MC/IC axis, which is conjunct my nodes, and sitting on top of Mercury at my MC in opposition to Neptune and Jupiter at my IC.

So my little gestalt drama would be Mercury playing a tug of war against Neptune and Jupiter, while everyone else stood around them in a circle, jeering and throwing rotten tomatoes.

Ha, considering I’m in the states, it’s daytime here, and I clearly have nothing else to do besides indulge in astrological fantasy play-acting, I’m gonna give this a go. Here’s my cast of characters (and just as an aside, I use the sidereal zodiac – after much study & research I decided it was the most accurate for me): Sun, Mercury, Jupiter – all 1º Virgo in the 12th (AC is 5º Virgo) Moon – 20º Aries in the 8th Venus – 26º Virgo in the 1st Mars – 9º Gemini in the 10th Saturn – 19º Capricorn in the… Read more »

Thanks! I’m thinking about doing it. Once I got over the initial fatigue of writing all of that lol I realized it could be beneficial to do a dialogue at least between some of the planets w/ squares & opps.

This Gestalt thing is not only fun, but ridiculously useful…

It’s amazing because you get to see your entire chart in a totally different light – and a much clearer light at that.

All of the planets have different “goals,” if you will, and it’s their conflicting goals that create difficulty.

Oh I love that image! I’m going to do this DIY, I might draw a circle and use monopoly pieces as the planets, or something. Mars can be the sportscar. just need to sleep now…

Love DIY astro but I really think I need to hire a theatre troupe to understand my chart!

Have sun Aries 29º and mars Libra opposition as well oppositions between Uranus and Pluto (conjunct Virgo) to my asc & chiron (conjunct in Pisces) – every time a do any reading on these aspects to try and understand more – I feel like I need a good lie down!

I think some of us could volunteer to role play certain planets for people with questions about those planets

i guess i can relate to the Pluto-Ac opposition… my pluto is conjunct saturn and Mercury/DC… so Pluto opposing AC – to nail it down: use – dont be abused… thats a power issue. massive power issue as far as i am concerned but i am having saturn return (to the degree right now…) and this means also saturn is transiting my pluto i have never yearned so much for loneliness and hiding away from reality before… everyone played and plays their games by using me as playground. uncountable power struggles… but you will win if you trust your intuition… Read more »

Thanks for your help here, you have some great insights! Understand the need to withdraw, I find it really helpful to get some perspective – yes am very aware of people projecting and this becomes a bit exhausting and inhibiting, feel the need to give them the space they need to become aware of what ever they’re going through. As for power I have inadvertently given this away at times, mostly because I don’t worry about it too much. I’ve always felt pretty strong and that it’s always within reach if I need to assert it but I don’t feel… Read more »

Beautifully written, I Can relate to That. I need to get away from everything and find what makes me happy. The stress dissolves when I’m alone. Financially I’m stuck, I can’t just up and leave.
