Roger Christi and Religious Freedom

Roger Christi is a friend of mine. I have assisted him with astrology for close to 20 years. He is a kind, peaceful and honorable man. He practices religion using cannabis as a sacrament. He worked openly with County officials, the Mayors, and Police Chief for many years, while operating his cannabis ministry in downtown Hilo.

I have followed Roger’s case closely and given the help and support that I can when he and Share, his wife, asked me to help with timing. In the past, we have had some great wins. Other times, there was not much we could with the timing of things. I have hope that Roger will win his case and that it will contribute to changing the laws.

I wanted to share the astrology of Roger and his case. On Monday, July 29, 2013 at 10:30 am there will be a hearing in Honolulu to ask the Judge to allow the Religious Freedom defense. The astrology of this date has the astrologers buzzing with projections and ideas.

Marijuana Prohibition began in 1937 at a time when most people had no idea what it was. It was a plot to create another law to suppress freedom. It took some time and energy to work up the back story that would create the scare and drive support for something that was commonly useful from the time of our earliest settlers. Not all hemp is psychotropic. It is a plant with many valuable uses such as medicine, rich food value, and one of the world’s strongest fibers, used to make sails for massive sailing ships. The seeds are actually very valuable.

The Prohibition came into power at midnight October 1, 1937. Here is the chart:

Marijuana ProhibitionNotice that Mercury is partile conjunct Neptune. I feel that this is relative to the falsehoods and lies that it took to create and pass this law. It also speaks directly to the administration of this so-called “drug”. Mercury is in Phasis, just out of the Sun’s beams, bringing out an important message. But this also lets us understand that a lot happened unseen and behind closed doors prior to the enactment of the law. Mercury trines Jupiter (legislation/truth), which is also cadent and in its Fall. The only positive power in this chart is with Mercury and with Mars, who are both exalted.

Mars is ruler of the MC and the 5th house of recreation. It displays its military tendency from Capricorn and in a very tight square to its ruler Saturn, who is in its Fall. Saturn rules the 7th and 8th houses, and is in the 9th. Thus we have a war against the people and their resources. It was a start to other social controls and even the beliefs and mindset of the people.

Pluto is at the very last few minutes of Cancer in the first house. This is the end of a period of security and protections put in place so the people don’t hurt themselves, doing what they want to. Venus is in its Fall and at the south bending of the nodes. Venus rules the 4th and 11th houses. Venus (values) ruled by cold/dry Mercury with very strong dignity contributes to both the “story” they have to tell and the loss of value to the people. The south bending pushes others beyond their comfort zone, according to Lee Lehman.

The Moon at 28 Leo is opposed to the Moon of the USA chart. The Moon rules the Ascendant and is in the terms of Mars, contributing to the martial-like implementation of the law. The Sun, dispositor of the Moon is in its Fall, and is cadent. The power behind this law is a bit indifferent.

This law really got teeth with the Controlled Substance Act of 1970. Here is that chart:


Leo is rising with the Sun with Mercury in early Scorpio. Mercury is just out of Cazimi, making it combust. Mercury rules Moon and Pluto who are only 10’ of orb separating. That provides the ruthless power and the build-up of many policing agencies to support the efforts to control and suppress access to and the use of marijuana. A lot of big money is made through these efforts.

Then, we find Mars in it Fall again, and applying to conjunct Uranus. Mars is the dispositor of 5 planets in this chart! With Mercury as part of this group, we have a combination of strategic planning and even entrapment. Venus is retrograde and in detriment, and is the ruler of the MC. It closely opposes Saturn, also retrograde. Saturn rules the 6th and 7th houses.

Jupiter is ruler of houses 5 and 8 and is in a T-square opposed to Saturn and square the Ascendant. Saturn limits and restricts, right? Jupiter is very suppressed and this has probably contributed to how long this unfair, and repressive restriction of marijuana for personal and recreational use has filled our prisons with people who simply want to smoke pot.

Are the current transits potent enough to end these laws and restrictions? Saturn just stationed direct on the Sun/Mercury of this chart and is just entering the 4th. The Pluto/Uranus square is active to Uranus of this chart.  These energies could influence changes. Saturn reaches Jupiter in early November and Uranus will be back on the MC of the Prohibition chart. Mars will cross the Neptune/Mercury of the CSA. Pluto will be at the Mars/Jupiter midpoint from the end of September to the end of November. This seems like a good deal of potent change energy.

Roger Christi

Now, let me introduce Roger Christi, who is actually being held as a political prisoner. He has been held without bail or trial since his arrest July 8, 2010. You can read all about him and his story here:

Here is Roger’s chart:




His strong Air element is a testimony to his orientation to educate, inform, and to bring people together. He has run for Mayor twice on the Big Island. This gave him an opportunity to bring cannabis into the conversation openly. His Aquarius Moon is conjunct the Moon of the USA chart. His MC is near the USA Ascendant. His Sun is conjunct the USA Mars, with Mercury conjunct USA Uranus. He obviously challenges the system. He was a conscientious objector to the war.

Roger tells the background story of his arrest and why he believes the government his holding him with such heavy restrictions. He has been denied bail 5 times. You can get more of his story on his blog.





Here is the arrest chart:

This chart is about to be heavily activated with the transits on Monday. Saturn at 29 Virgo is conjunct the Moon/Pluto of the CSA chart. Uranus and Jupiter are opposed to Saturn, but out of sign. The Moon is conjunct Roger’s Mars. He was giving away Marijuana to the homeless in downtown Hilo. He was helping people who might otherwise be finding something much more dangerous. There is a hearing on Monday, July 29, 2013 where Roger will apply to have the Religious Freedom Act used in his defense. Here is the chart for the hearing:







Here is the Bi-wheel for Roger and the hearing:


The trail has been pushed back many times. It is currently set for October 8, 2013. Mercury and Saturn are partile conjunct in the 12th. They are at the degree of the November 3 eclipse. Mercury rules the Midheaven (the Judge) and Saturn rules the 2nd and 3rd. Mercury and Saturn trine Chiron at the IC. We don’t know if this is actually going to be the trial, I won’t project much on this.

I wish them all the best and hope for the end result to be the repeal of the Marijuana Prohibition and the re-defining of the Controlled Substance Act.
