Q+A Interview with Jeanne Mozier
Jeanne Mozier is on the faculty of The Many Faces of Astrology Conference, where she will be presenting a lecture entitled Oracle 2017—Happy Times. This Q+A Interview with Jeanne is part of a series that we will be featuring with other conference faculty members.
Q: How did you get introduced to astrology?
A: In prison. That answer always has folks perk up. I was working in the DC Department of Corrections and would spend time in the Women's Detention Center. One day an astrology teacher came to talk the women, so I sat in. It was an amazing experience. Women inmates who generally had the attention span of a fruit fly were riveted by the information. Soon after I began studying with the teacher—outside the prison. As with many astrologers, it was remembering what I'd obviously known before.
Q: Do you have any advice on how to study astrology?
A: With a teacher. I don't believe you can actually learn astrology from a book although you can learn more astrology by reading after you have the basics. Since I learned in the early 1970s, it was pre-computer. I learned to calculate charts by hand, which gives a better sense of the flow of movement. Not that I would EVER want to go back to doing charts by hand; however, I did learn the purpose of logarithms that way. Unless you begin to apply astrological understanding to every level of activity both personal and universal, you will never truly learn astrology. It is not so much a matter of study as a matter of altered consciousness.
Q: How would you describe your astrological focus or area of study?
A: I do trends predictions and bill myself as a socio-cultural analyst. People listen better when I don't start off by announcing I'm an astrologer. I do annual Oracles lectures, which is what I'll be doing for 2017 at the conference.
Academically and professional trained as a research analyst, I have a strong background in history. I could not do what I do without being solidly anchored in these disciplines especially history. No one can analyze trends and predict what's going to happen unless they understand the cycles and patterns of history. My first job was writing a magazine called Trends for the Central Intelligence Agency. I'd not yet learned astrology so I learned trends analysis the hard way. Once I learned astrology, I discovered how much easier it is to analyze and predict trends when you can have an objective starting and end point and objective data indicating the characteristics of a specific trend period.
Q: How do you see the remaining years of Pluto in Capricorn?
A: Structures began collapsing and transforming with the arrival of Pluto in Capricorn in 2008. The upheaval accelerated when Uranus entered Aries in 2010 and then the final touch came when Neptune began happily dissolving everything around and introduced the culture of irrationality as it moved into Pisces in 2011. The seven squares of Uranus/Pluto from 2012-15 were among the most destructive years. Now we've less than a decade left before the new age begins when Pluto enters Aquarius and Neptune starts a new cycle in 2025. Before that light appears however, we move into the darkest period: Saturn joins Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus moves into Taurus and life becomes hard and very heavy. A lockdown is inevitable justified by a variety of events but mostly earth-related disasters ranging from famine to destructive earthquakes. It is 2020 that is the worst year of this final phase when Jupiter piles on in Capricorn. Fortunately, the one world corporate state supports the technology as Jupiter and Saturn move together into Aquarius. It provides new structures for the now grown-up children of the Uranus and Neptune conjunction of 1993 with their new consciousness who will lead the world out of the darkness.
Q: Do you have any thoughts about the interaction of astrology and culture? Astrology and science? Astrology and entertainment? Astrology and politics?
A: The second half of my Oracles lectures always deals with predictions in various areas based on analysis of the movement of the outer planets. People are mostly interested in political predictions. Those come in two categories: general trends like directions the USA make take or the current crisis facing the European Union or the dissolution of Syria and dispersal of its people; and the specifics are about candidates and elections. Both areas are very susceptible to accurate predictions based on general trends but mostly country and personal charts.
Astrology is highly effective in predicting and understanding cultural trends. For example, the 14-year transit of Neptune in Pisces has brought us the heightening of the drug crisis as well as the phenomenal disintegration of rationality. The immigration issue is also tied to Neptune in Pisces as boundaries dissolve. Astrology also points to solutions as in the drug crisis where the solution is very Piscean—a search for the sacred and for greater meaning.
One area in which people love to hear predictions—and will demand it of me in case I forget—is fashion. These trends are very dominated by the movement of both Saturn and Jupiter. We'll see it reflected in a phase of active yet elegant styles when Jupiter transits Libra with Saturn in Sagittarius in 2016-7.
There is virtually no area of life that does not lend itself to being interpreted and predicted using astrology.
Jeanne at The Many Faces of Astrology Conference
Jeanne is giving a lecture entitled Oracles 2017—Happy Times. In describing her lecture, she notes:
"How and when the pattern of the planets influence trends in economics, politics, consciousness and fashion for the upcoming year. 2017 is a fortuitous year. Not just a list of predictions, also learning opportunities about how to use astrology in trends and predictions."
Her lecture will take place on Friday, February 17.
About Jeanne Mozier
As my favorite radio talk show host characterizes me: Ivy League educated, CIA indoctrinated, West Virginia marinated. Clever….and relatively accurate.
The academic basis and scholarly background for trends and analysis came from Cornell and Columbia with degrees in political science and international relations. Recruited by the CIA, I learned how to apply trends analysis to foreign policy. When I began learning astrology, there was the immediate recognition of its potential for fine-tuning trends predictions, so I used them for every level and branch in the US political scene. My longest affiliation was with a member of the US Congress. I was also involved as a campaign operative and political consultant.
My astrological work is firmly grounded in real life. I am also a published author of a novel, Senate Magic, and contributed articles to many magazines, such as Planet Earth and The Mountain Astrologer as well as dozens of non-astrological publications. My list of correct predictions over the years is impressive, most recently, the crash of the real estate market and the economy, the Arab Spring and its outcome (based on the connection with 1848), the disappearance of Syria as a nation, the refugee crisis and many more.
