Pholus keeps coming back on this blog. This time I noticed the transit and progression with/from Pholus with the progressed Sun in the chart of Crispin Blunt. Crispin Blunt, a conservative British politician, had a public coming out yesterday. The BBC-news reported about it (link). It must be an enormous turning poin in the life of the father of two. This situation is being reflected by a double Pholus aspect:
- transit Pholus square his progressed/solar arc Sun
- this is the year of his progressed Sun inconjunct progressed Pholus.
It is amazing that a piece of stone (dimension 185x16 km; the remains of shattered objects) keeps coming back as the symbol of a dramatic or important change! Pholus is small, unseen, but significant...as it seems (see the examples). A Pholus-Sun contact often has great impact. (BTW: when an asteroid hits the sun, the sun isn't left undamaged... See YouTube)
I quote my Pholus files: http://astropost.blogspot.com/2010/04/pholus-files.html
Pholus + Sun: turning point in honour or lifestyle/health, something starts changing your life.In some cases the persons sex life was in the spotlight. Examples are in the ' Pholus files', just as links to more information about the myth and more posssible meanings of Pholus aspects.
Here is some information about the object Pholus:

EXPLANATION: PROGESSED SUN=SOLAR ARC SUN
The zodiac has 360 degrees, divided into 12 pieces, the sun signs. The sun moves through the zodiac in an average 365,25 days every year. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac. Capricorn is the 10th sign. Pisces is the last sign. Every day the Sun moves about 1 degree further in the zodiac. This is 'secondary progression'.
In June the Sun will move less than 1 degree, in December the Sun will move more than one degree per day. So when you are born in summer, it will take a little bit longer before your progressed Sun will reach the next sign, than when you are born in winter.
You can calculate the progressed Sun on Astro.com (it is for free).
