Change Your Name (February 15, 1980)
When Suzann and I married in Vancouver, BC, on July 15, 1978, we kept our own names. We had not planned on having any children, so the naming issue wasn’t a problem. Her daughter, Amy, had the same last name as Suzann, so that made sense, that is, until Rosanna was conceived. So, like any self-respecting parents, we changed our names to match my birth father’s surname, and we altered our given names to become brand new. (We adopted Amy later.)

My reason for reviewing the vibratory nature of my life, as it changed that day, is in keeping with the idea that my Saturn Return happened in September 1979, and I effectively was reborn then. Here’s the chart for that moment…
The stellium of planets in Virgo, starting with Saturn @ 18 degrees, being opposite the ‘event’ Ascendant in Pisces, is quite an impressive sight. The Moon/Mars conjunction is inconjunct the ‘event’ Midheaven, and Pluto @ 18 Libra is inconjunct the Ascendant. Altogether, it seems, this was a very stressful day, but I have no recollection of it.
When compared with my birth chart, there are many significant connections, including Neptune getting much closer to my birth Ascendant; Uranus passing my natal Moon; and Pluto transiting my natal Neptune. The slower planets had been on a mission, it would seem. However, that Moon/Mars conjunction is opposite my natal Mercury, so something had to give. As usual, that something is me. My life was changing, practically before my very eyes.
Change of Name
Please bear in mind that this event chart took place just three weeks before Rosanna was born. Talk about being too close for comfort, By raising this chart, I can compare that time period, without sharing Rosanna’s private birth chart.
There are three inconjuncts: Venus with Mars and Venus with Jupiter, and the Sun with Saturn. I knew Saturn would be involved, due to the fact that we were adopting my birth father’s name.
Here I am, having just turned 30, changing my life completely. The double Yod, formed by Mercury and the Ascendant of the ‘event’ chart, is pointing to my natal Mars/Midheaven conjunction. There are two other inconjuncts, connecting my natal Venus with the ‘event’ Jupiter, and my natal Saturn with the ‘event’ Moon. Oh, the things we do for love.
I’m not lamenting the fact that my life had to change, because that would be a nonsense. Let’s just say, in retrospect, that I had no idea where it was going to take me: on a Journey of a Lifetime.
