The Sun joins M87 on September 25

Messier 87 (M87, Virgo A, Virgo Galaxy) is an 8.6 magnitude supergiant galaxy with several trillion stars in the constellation Virgo. It is one of the local universe’s largest and most massive galaxies. It has a jet of energetic plasma that originates at the core and extends at least 4,900 light-years. It is also one of the brightest radio sources in the sky. M87 has an active supermassive black hole at its core.

M87 Astrology

Philip Sedgwick [1] calls M87 the Super Galactic Center. My research on Black Hole astrology confirms his findings that the most significant manifestation is sequential monogamy, or codependency and dysfunctional relationship behavior.

M87 gives intense powers of attraction, charm, sex appeal and commitment. However, the partner feels captured, engulfed and consumed. The native is so needy and demanding of time and energy that the relationship ultimately fails.

Although breaking up is especially devastating for M87 people, it is not long before they find themselves in the next committed relationship. Black Hole astrology gives an obsession with finding the perfect partner. Sometimes, relationships can be replaced by a career or special calling. But the result is the same. No one person or job can make them feel satisfied or fulfilled. They always want more and more.

Thankfully, most people turn to spirituality for answers. There is the realization that some childhood wounds must be healed. Once the energy-sucking, demanding behavior is eliminated, an evolutionary stage of development allows room for a soul mate. Some will also become healers, teachers, agents of enlightenment and promoters of change.

Black Hole Astrology

In The Black Hole Book, Alex Miller [2] says that Black Hole astrology promotes change and transition and can be challenging to work with. Black Holes represent a complete reversal of the status quo. Many manifestations seem negative, but their high drama can often elicit rags-to-riches stories.

Theoretical physics states that Black Holes are doorways to parallel universes, alternate realities, and higher dimensions. Making contact with one in our daily lives can often feel like that. Like we have been uprooted from the everyday reality of the Light World and thrust into an alien environment, an Underworld which, although ominous and threatening, can also be the repository of vast riches and the wealth of knowledge of the subconscious.

Several major themes emerge in Black Hole astrology. These involve changeability, personal magnetism/repulsion, extreme instability/unpredictability, unique perspective, energy absorption, transmutation or depletion, and a greater than the typical impact on one’s environment or peers. There is also the attraction of unparalleled, singular, often bizarre experiences.

  1. I have my natal Pluto there, in my 1st house (Im Virgo Rising), in Libra, and now the New Moon.. whats gonna happen???? At least, i got some answers, to my problematic Love life.. thanks Jamie🙏

  2. Very interesting, thank you. I have my natal Vertex in conjunction with M87 on the exact degree in Libra. So the new moon on Sunday the 25th will hit it. Natal Vertex and this new moon also makes an exact, on the degree, square to my natal MC in Capricorn and an exact square to my natal IC conjunct Saturn in Cancer. Also natal Vertex is 4 degrees conjunct natal Pluto. Other natal aspects from my 2.32 degree Vertex in Libra: trine to Venus in Capricorn within 4 degrees and a trine to Jupiter in Aquarius in a wide degree of 9. Also my natal Vertex is near my DC, which is on degree 9 in Libra. I would love if you or anyone would like to comment on if there is anything to expect from this new moon on Sunday. And what it could mean to have Vertex in exact conjunct to M87. Wish everyone a lovely weekend!

  3. Return of the Red Eye.

    One red,one sparkly,

    the center the black hole.

    Is black a color?

    Welcome to the womb hole.

    Charlie and the chocolate factory meet starburst.

  4. Wow, I’m going to have to buy this Black Hole book to add to my collection! Thanks for posts, I’ve enjoyed them over the years!

  5. Sorry Jamie, “Theoretical physics states that Black Holes are doorways to parallel universes, alternate realities, and higher dimensions.” This is not true, Black Holes are not holes, doors or pathways of any type, they are atomic mincing machines that will rip apart any matter that crosses the Event Horizon. Their gravity will influence everything within their reach and lost matter sucked into the BH’s sphere will probably recycle into an energy beam. I’m a physicist and have studied Cosmology as well as the cross-over into Astrology, and the nature of the human mind.

  6. M87 is cosily (??) snuggled between Neptune and Chiron in my 10th house.
    I have been married (and divorced) three times.
    One of my mottoes used to be : “I believe in excess” but this was mostly when I was much younger.
    The only reason I don’t abuse substances, is that I don’t at all like the way any such abuse makes me feel.
    Excess?? I have 4000 books…

  7. Bipolar/twin flames,for some,have a hard time coming back to center and becoming the master of both poles.

    Trinity and back to Godhead.

    Thanks for the write up Jamie and being on the money.

    Looking forward to the coming of age of trinity in unity.

    The Father,the son,the holy spirit,amen.

    Excerpt:Central to the doctrine of God is the unity of the godhead. God cannot be divided against himself. In Christian faith we have one God in three Persons in perfect relational unity, fully representative of each other, and equally ultimate.

    Game on.: )


  8. The M87 is smack on my natal Sun at two degrees of Libra, and in a tight stellium with Venus and Neptune. Not sure whether to run and hide, or get lost in the power and glory.

    • Markeb also directly on Ascendant at 28.5 Virgo. It all seems rather too close for comfort, but been feeling a major shift. Hopefully in the right direction!

  9. How do you find out where it sits in your Birth chart? I cant find a Symbol for it anywhere?

    • Hi Shelly. The position of 02°03′ Libra is for the year 2000. You have to work it out yourself for your birth year. Like the fixed stars, It moves ahead through the zodiac at one degree every 72 years, or 0.838′ per year.

      • Ok, confusing, thought I could find a way on astro.com to no avail. I was born in 1983, so prior to 2000 as it moves every 72 years means it was in Virgo?

        • 2000 – 1983 = 17 years
          17 years X 0.838’/year = 14.2′
          02♎03 – 14′ = 01♎49

          So in 1983, M87 was at 01♎49
