[10:23 AM 9/13/2011] :: first plane i took after 9/11 was to NYC in February 2005 (ironically, our conference met in an old fire station). we managed to visit Ground Zero one night, but it was just a big hole in the ground surrounded by a fence with a bunch of signs (photo timeline). finally, we stopped a New Yorker to ask where we could pay our respects. fortunately, he took a few minutes to explain there was no specific place of remembrance, basically it was just the signs. New York really hadn't figured out yet, he said, how to build the appropriate memorial. he was going into the subway terminal (which was really confusing because it seemed like the only "nice" thing — there were white beams, don't know if that's the transportation hub or Fulton Street Transit Center?). when i got home i looked up WTC Ground Zero to figure out what was going on but i was still confused. so i was happy watching Making the 9/11 Memorial & finally learning about Reflecting Absence [+][+][+][+][+][+]. one guy was talking about all the controversies they had to deal with, making sure everyone was happy — not an easy thing to achieve. but i was especially inspired by KC Fabrications (just two guys) winning the bid by figuring out how to implement a major design challenge cheaply.

the six bells and the memorial really inspired this post. it's not meant to be depressing (ohnoes, we got scorpio rising!) below there's a Rudhyar quote about the obstacles (the transits) "pit[ting] the ephemeris against the birth-chart". the birth-chart represents our potential. i like Hendoku Iyaku because it recognizes the "shadow" but says we can overcome it. USA Ascendant is conjunct the Great Attractor & Philip Sedgwick says what emerges there is free will, but there are tremendous forces against it. being overly cinematic (since, all of life's riddles are answered in the movies) May The Force Be With You :o)


[3:30 AM 9/18/2011] :: updated table for Asteroid (10649) VOC (oops, wrong asteroid number too), and 9/11 conjunctions to USA Midheaven & USA Ascendant (Rudhyar's rectified Sibley chart) to make sure to clarify & indicate time of the Ascendant (ASC) in the proper column. for example, on 11-Sep-2001 at 08:46:30AM asteroid VOC was at Sagittarius 08°24' & the 9/11 ASC was at Libra 14°27'.

EON Phases for asteroid VOC:

  • VOC {08SG24} 53°57'2" from 09/11/01 ASC {14LI27} @ EON-6 (Phase Arc 51.25° ~ Waxing Septile) Endurance, Illuminating Intervention, Larger Forces, Crisis of Growth § KEYNOTE: A transcendent sense of affirmation realized in the endurance of a crisis of growth and its tests of allegiance § DYNAMIC: unexpected opportunities, possibilities, and realizations.
  • VOC {13CP56} 89°48'0" from 09/11/11 ASC {14LI08} @ EON-9 (Phase Arc 80° ~ Waxing Bi-Novile) Lichtung, Ground of Operation, Maturation, Swift Growth § KEYNOTE: Emergent new qualities claim a field for growth § DYNAMIC: a field of their own.
Swetest can calculate Houses (including ASC, IC, DSC, MC), Part of Fortune & Vertex, but results i get are different from Astrodienst Extended Chart Selection. so, to make sure i get these right (or at least, consistent), using Extended Chart & checking ASC in the additional tables pdf.
