The Spider Goddess
My spider-senses have been tingling, lately; louder, and louder, until I said to myself: "I wonder what Asteroids Arachne and Moira are doing at the moment... like, seriously?!"
Lo-and-Behold! She is about to have her Annual Dance in the Sun!
In Virgo - The Sign of the Priestess.
...hovering somewhere between my North Node/Lilith conjunction, and Saturn.
About 100x a week, I will write a word, and simultaneously, someone will say that same word... once is like "whatever... that was weird", but 100x is like, "OK". "YOU HAVE MY ATTENTION."
Last night, I even hunted through all my boxes of storage, looking for a book I didn't even know if I still had, and had not laid eyes on, in about 10 years or more - I found it! lol. I couldn't believe it.
The book was about Goddess Wisdom; "...particularly the goddesses associated with weaving the thread of life..."
If you know me, you know that I wrote my book, Following Moira, about The Weaver Goddess aka The Triple Goddess, aka The Moira aka... The Goddess of Many Names.
She is found in the energy of synchronicity, coincidence, intuition, timing, revelation, awakening, patterns, time-travel - or a good Act-Three in a movie, where everything ties together nicely, with no loose ends.
And She works well with the WWW. - of course!
(her organic energy was squashed by algorithms and false "coincidence" orchestrated by suckerberg and co)
She is better at "show" than "tell"; she can be cryptic. She can confuse the novice; I should know, for I was one, once.
One example would include right now: to be thinking of Asteroid Arachne, looking it up, only to find out she's having a birthday! What a stroke of Luck...
Let's just say, she's a bit like Uranus conjunct Mercury-on-speed conjunct the Vertex and/or the North Node.
She can be talented or tangled.
Precise; Genius - or the shadow of those things.
She is very sensitive to vibrations; changes in mood, weather, or direction.
Even the territory of a yet-unseen wild dog, or a big, bad wolf.
As always, manifestations depends on Initiation and Evolution.
Do you know what you're doing or where you're going yet, or not? That is the question.
- and I should know, because I've been lost and found, many times!
I am happy to announce that I do know who I am; what I'm doing; and why I'm here.
Part of that is telling you stories...
You see, I have Arachne Rising in Sagittarius, conjunct Neptune.
It goes like this: Neptune 17, Ascendant 18, Arachne 19.
I also have a "pinball chart", with many asteroids, planets, and points at the 18/19 degree-mark; a Web, essentially.
But I only found out about Arachne in 2014.
I have been known to weave a tale or two, in my time... especially tales from the "otherside" (Neptune).
Sagittarius is a Teacher, a Storyteller, a Philosopher, a Guru - it sees the Big Picture.
How everything fits together - and it does.
Arachne and Moira are basically one-and-the-same, to me; they are always connected or connecting in some way.
Once upon a time, a beautiful young woman from Europe found my book online, and got in touch with me, because she related to the phenomena within it, and shared some of her stories with me ~ we experienced so much Moira together, that when I looked up our astrology, not only were Moira and Arachne transiting our Asteroids, but our Asteroids contacted each others' Asteroids!
She was so smart and so beautiful; I was so honoured and amazed that the thread of The Weaver Goddess had somehow magically connected us, over land and seas... it made the awful parts of my journey suddenly beautiful, worthwhile, and rewarding.
In March, 2016, I made this discovery:
"SO... as FATE would have it, I just found out, that the male-person who features in my book, FOLLOWING MOIRA, had his *asteroid Moira* conjunct my Sun. Like, exactly.
Now, I didn't make that a long story, in case you don't know what the hell I'm talking about... but I promise, it's an *amazing* story...
I was much more enthusiastic when I was younger; it's sad how much trauma takes from you - but it still can't take all the Magic.
Here is something I wrote about Moira, from July 7, 2014, when I discovered Arachne was conjunct my Neptune Rising in Sagittarius:

"I just read an amazing article on Authors, their characters, and Personal Asteroids (thanks,
After all this "Asteroid Potter" in J.K. Rowling's Chart; (and Hermoine opposite Grange; Rone opposite Wesely, etc), I thought: why not check out my Asteroid Following Moira?
Part One: Asteroid MOIRA is CURRENTLY conjunct The SUN!
(read: *~ MOIRA IS ILLUMINATED ~*)
Long story short (following all the leads); ASTEROID ARACHNE (Weaver Goddess) is conjunct my AC! (I'm still so reeling, that I have yet to check the aspects, and read the things, and the stuff...)
"Spider as Power Animal links to creation itself and in turn ‘fate’. Extreme talent seems to open a window into the heavens themselves. We get a glimpse of our true human potential and can be filled with a sense that there is something ‘beyond’ our experience. It is humbling and it can be frightening, hence the strong reactions of some. Whilst science seeks to pull back the veil to reveal the workings of creation, it often leads to more questions than answers. Spider medicine and Arachne tap into the unknowable, even what ‘should not’ be known. Arachne may connect to the concept of playing God.
For many, Spider is a symbol of the ancient Mother Goddess, a divine feminine symbol. Perhaps this is why Spider has been feared and maligned.
Arachne and Spider are also about the pattern you weave in your life – the sense you make of it, the tangles you create. It is the patience to weave and wait for your prey (your goals) to be fulfilled. The beautiful complex patterns of spider webs along with their incredible strength tap into the extraordinary beauty of the universe, the complexity and simplicity of the Greater Pattern and our part in the web of creation."

This *may* sound like I am speaking, fluently, another language, entirely - but:
Uranus currently conjunct asteroid Arachne at her discovery in my chart.
Which means, also, this "revelation" is trine herself in my chart!
My Arachne at 9 o'clock
Threaded to transiting Arachne at exactly "25 minutes past"
(one arm of a triangle ~*)
And so much more!!
- if you've read my book, you'll know why ALL OF THIS is AMAZING!!!
*~ MAGIC ~*"
The article was basically saying, that Authors usually have a prominent Asteroid connected to their Magnum Opus - only they don't know it at the time.
So hbu? Any magic going on for you atm?
I hope so!
