About This Site

The Inner Wheel is a site devoted to intermediate and advanced astrological interpretation.  It tries for something a bit more in-depth than you usually find on a web site or a blog; we will explore the meaning behind the symbolism in astrology and take a look at what it means to live and work with astrological knowledge.  Here, we will discuss the  methods and means of astrological interpretation, but we will also tackle the often confusing question of how to live with and apply the knowledge we gain from our art.   We won’t have ‘how-to’ or ‘cookbook’ sessions as much as a gentle exploration of some uncharted (no pun intended) territory.

While The Inner Wheel is aimed at serious students of astrology,  there will be topics of interest for all.  Among the first entries is a five part series on the Sun as a creative force in the chart. (Please see the archives for August, 2009.) There are also in-depth articles on the meaning of the angles, particularly the MC/IC and how it relates to Saturn/Moon, and a three-part piece on the Ascendant/Descendant axis, “The Roving “I.”  I hope you enjoy exploring the archives.

My  areas of specialization are secondary progressions and synastry.  I will answer any questions you may have on chart interpretation.  Please leave questions in the comments boxes on the site  or email me directly at alcuin9@gmail.com.   Don’t be shy.  I will be happy to answer all levels of questions, from the most basic to the most complex.

I look forward to our journey together.

 

Dawn

    MY MOON IS IN SCORPIO…WHAT IS THE BEST THING TO DO (OR NOT), WHEN MOON GETS IN SCORPIO, ONCE A MONTH?…..

    Hi Irena, The best thing to do when you have a lunar return every month is to understand that it’s a personal new beginning, so it’s a good time to start things, especially if they will take some time. Each lunar return is different, according to the position of the planets, so it’s good to chart each lunar return. It will give you a snapshot of what the month ahead will hold for you in terms of challenges to both your emotional life and your everyday details. When the moon returns, it’s a good time for meditation, and the Moon in Scorpio is especially keen for that. Go down deep and try to find the truth in everything that you do.

    Hi Dawn,its great to have come across your site and I’m enjoying reading your work.
    I’m wondering about synastry interaspects and how important reiprocity of sign rulership is.
    My partner and I have a sun moon square, which can be tricky at times, however his sun is in Taurus, whih is ruled by Venus, and my moon is in Libra, also ruled by Venus. My sun is in Virgo, ruled by Mercury and his moon is in Gemini, also ruled by Mercury! I’m wondering if this is our ‘balancer’ – or is it not really that important?
    Thanks,
    Colleen

    Yes, it does matter. It actually matters quite a lot, especially in your case, where the Sun and the Moon are involved. The dispositor of the Sun plays a more important role than most people realize, and carries a lot of weight in the chart. In essence here you are both highly influenced by Venus and Mercury–no bad thing. You both prefer harmony and you can both talk things out. But if Mars, say, was the common planet–a different story entirely. There would be more of an inclination to strife.

    Hello Dawn,
    I have found some amazing information on your site. I have a number of things to ask you. One question is about the Sun and Leo. You have some very interesting ideals about the Sun and I was wondering how does do these ideas influence Leo as its ruling luminary?

    Thanks,
    Ben

    Hi Ben–I would like to answer your question, but you need to be more specific. I’m not sure what you’re asking.

    Dear Dawn, in a month I will have my second Progressed Lunar Return. At the same time the Progr.Moon will move to the 6th house, forming a conjunction with my nat.Mercury, trine with my natal Pluto and sextiles with my nat. Jupiter and Neptune. Do you think I can expect some interesting and favorable changes in my life?
    Thanks, I am so happy to know you and your work from this wonderfull site,
    Nevena

    Hi Nevina. I wish I could tell you that good things are coming your way, but reading progressed return charts is a lot more complicated than that. First of all, I’d be unable to do it without the natal chart and secondly, you would need to draw up a chart for when the progressed lunar return is first exact to the minute. That’s the chart that really needs to be interpreted in order for you to figure out how your progressed return will go. There are a lot of things to consider, including whether there are any long term challenging aspects happening with the progressed Sun, or if the return itself is under stress. I spend a lot of time teaching my progressions students how to read this chart and the chart of the Progressed New Moon. These are fundamental crossroads in life and can’t be taken lightly. But yes, if I were you I would expect some positive changes afoot, depending on house rulerships.

    Hi Dawn
    I have my Vesta on my AC, can jou tell me if there is a specific meaning to this, thank you!!!

    With Vesta on the ASC, self-development becomes a sacred task. Every moment of life can become a spiritual exercise.

    Hello Dawn!
    I read an article of yours on Sasstrology about inner planet aspects to angles in synastry, and i had a question. how important is it when your angles line up? for instance in my situation my AC/DC (1leo4/18cap16)runs parallel with his
    MC/IC (17can39/17cap39)* and my MC/IC (21ari25/21libra25) runs parallel with his AC/DC (16libra16/20aries43)*. Is this significant? * i used the meridian house system and noticed that the DC are not exact opposite AC. what house system do you find most accurate?

    It’s much more important than people realize. Angle/angle contacts help people to feel that they are on a path together, and that one influences the others life and vice versa. The angle rulers will be the same even if the angles are different (for example, if my Asc is Libra and your MC is Libra and they are conjunct, we are both heavily influenced by Venus). This is just as important with the Nodes and the Vertex, though angle/angle will be more obvious and active.

    I use Placidus almost exclusively.

    Hi Dawn, I was searching for information on Saturn opposition Saturn in synastry and found your website. Just great! I got stuck here and read the whole article, and wondered why I liked it so much (don’t read much good stuff these days; I usually go to ‘astro.com’ where I find some articles written by Liz Greene). When I saw your reading list I understood everything; I’ve got many of the books you recommend :-) I just wanted to congratulate you for all the information you have on your website. Very good material and also very good posts from people that know what astrololy is about.

    Hi, i would like to ask what means if i have the ruler of twelfth house in first house and scuare pluto?
    Thank you a lot!

    On it’s own, without the context of the rest of the chart, not much. The only thing you can make of this is that twelfth house experiences will be a part of creating the identity, and these experiences will be of a transforming nature. You need the whole chart to make sense of it.
