Pisces of the Month: Edgar Cayce
Edgar Cayce was born on March 18, 1877. He was an American trance medium who answered questions on healing, astrology, reincarnation, Atlantis, and future events. During his lifetime, "the Sleeping Prophet” gave approximately 30,000 life-readings and medical diagnosis to people. At times the channeled readings were at odds with Cayce’s Christian belief. For example he was quite surprised when the Source mentioned astrology and reincarnation in the readings.
Eventually Edgar Cayce accepted both concepts. According to Cayce’s guide, a group of spirits known as “the Source,” the placement of the planets indicated past-life influences and planetary journeys. As for reincarnation, the Source said the Cayce family had been together in ancient Egypt. In that life, Edgar Cayce was the priest Ra-Ta who tried to spiritually guide the Egyptians. He tried to replace their system of worshiping many gods with one god-Ra.
Cayce was indeed a powerful and accurate channeler. His sun in the mystical sign of Pisces in the eighth house of the occult definitely indicated a psychic nature. The Sun sextiling Pluto in Taurus in the tenth house of career showed he would be recognized for this unique talent. His Moon in Taurus gave him an easy-going nature, unless crossed - then Cayce could show a stubborn streak. His Moon conjunct Neptune in the ninth house of the higher mind and dreams gave him access to the world beyond through the trance state. Cayce’s chart is not without its flaws. His moon in Taurus makes a wide square to Uranus in the first house indicating a strong will and ego. However, Edgar Cayce worked hard to maintain a spiritual perspective. Disciplined by nature, he read the Bible each year of his life and placed great faith in his teachings.
Most of all, Edgar Cayce wanted to be of service to others. He advised people to view the information given in his readings in terms of creating a better life for the recipient. The Sleeping prophet asked “Does it make one a better husband, a better businessman, a better neighbor, a better artist, a better churchman? If so, cleave to it; if not, reject it.

Aquarius of the Month: Franklin Delano Roosevelt
During the America’s darkness days, Franklin Delano Roosevelt reminded the nation that “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” No wonder, he was elected to office four times, making him the longest running President in the history of the United States. FDR guided the nation through the Great Depression and World War and is credited with the New Deal and social security programs. While the Democratic President never mentioned an interest in astrology, his third-term Vice President, Henry Wallace was known to be a “stargazer of many cults,” according to the Washington Post.
The thirty-second President of the United States was born January 30, 1882 at 8:45 p.m. in Hyde Park, NY. Both his parents, businessman James Roosevelt and mother Sara Ann Delano came from wealthy New York families. Franklin was born with his Sun in independent sign of Aquarius and his Moon in the home-loving sign of Cancer. Since the United States is a Cancer country with its Moon in Aquarius, Roosevelt understood well the need for national security while maintaining democratic principles. More important, with is Sun in Aquarius, he was not afraid of change and was willing to seek good counsel.
His Sun close to the planet Venus made for a life of ease. Growing up, FDR had a happy but sheltered childhood, which included with trips to Europe and private tutors. His loving but dominating mother tried in vain to stop her son’s marriage to his cousin Eleanor Roosevelt. However, Franklin was not a man who liked to be alone. He and Eleanor had six children. While the marriage lasted, the couple preferred to live separate lives.
Regardless of his circumstances, FDR managed to maintain a cheerful countenance. Perhaps this is because of the Mercury, planet of communication, was in the sign of Aquarius in good aspect to Mars in Gemini. The combination gave him exception mental ability and powers of persuasion. This served Roosevelt well when he was forced to focus on his health due to a bout with polio at age of 39. However, he courageously continued his political career. With Uranus on his Virgo ascendant, Franklin Roosevelt was a strong force for justice—even in a wheelchair!
