Since I am not spending as much time here as I once was, I am putting up the Full Moon for July 2014 (July 12) and New Moon (July 26) in this single blog post.  The FM is a Capricorn Moon / Cancer Sun FM.  Looking at the positions of Jupiter and Pluto, I would estimate this to be more of a FM to “excess” than others are.  People often take unnecessary and foolish risks during the summer, and this FM confirms that this weekend will be a dangerous one for some.  New relationships will seem particularly intense, and tensions will run high in existing ones.  Here is the FM chart:

Jupiter is very late in Cancer and may, in fact, be void of course.  v/c is generally viewed as an unfavorable time; most of the time it is discussed in relation to the Moon because the Moon v/c window occurs every 2 to 3 days.  Jupiter v/c occurs about once a year, and this one coincides with a FM.  Interesting to an astrologer and almost certainly dangerous in some way.

(We also note Neptune (deception, delusions, mis-steps) in the eighth house (of death and taxes).)

The New Moon is an early Leo NM.  This will be a particularly good time for romance, and any new romances from the FM on July 12 that survive this long will have a chance of prospering.  Even though it happens in July, this is very much an “August Moon” in many ways.  Here is the chart:

We also note that if this is not a night of intense sex then it might be a night of intense power struggles.  Or, it could be both.  Jupiter has entered Leo by this point, and the “Grand Cross” of the year is over.  But, again, the power struggles are not necessarily done.  In many ways, this NM with Jupiter in Leo nearby marks the beginning of a new “Post Grand Cross” phase.

 

New Moon June 2014

Here is the chart for the New Moon of June 2014:

2014-06-25 23_50_43-NewMoon

[Click to Enlarge]

This New Moon comes only a few days before the Mercury Direct Station.  That leads me to believe that taking a few risks to “push things forward” during the “storm period” after the direct station might be worthwhile.  (The details depend on your personal chart.  This is just a general statement.)  However, Saturn is on the 7th house cusp (if you live in DFW), and Jupiter appears to be in an intercepted house.  So taking risks in personal relationships, with higher education, publishing, or law would likely be ill-advised.  What probably would work would be “risks” involving efforts to improve health, poetry, photography, and possibly mentoring those in closely knit relationships.

Summer Solstice 2014 (June 21, 2014)

To my regular readers: sorry for being mostly absent for the last year or so.  “Life” has been very busy.  Changes are happening that should permit me to be present here a bit more.  To Evie Rose and a few other regular readers: I will address your requests some time this summer. Also: I am moving to using an open source tool for my screenshots (Greenshot: http://getgreenshot.org) so the possibility exists that the charts might look a bit different.

Here is the chart for Summer Solstice, 2014:

2014-06-20 15_26_58-SummerSolstice

[Click to Enlarge]

The Summer Solstice is generally a pleasant time for most people.  Of course, if you were born in the days near the Winter Solstice, around December 21st, you always feel a bit of tension at this time of year.  (Your birthday signifies the potential of things to come, and the Summer Solstice usually represents the best that you can hope for this year.  If you missed it, then you have to wait for next year.  Thus you feel some bit of tension.)  Similarly, those who have birthdays near March 21st and September 21st feel a bit of tension at this time of year.

The Sun and Mercury have recently spoken, but Mercury is retrograde so we will have new messages come to us after Mercury turns direct circa June 30th.  Early July will bring something for everyone, and either the Independence Day celebration (United States) will bring something or the few days afterward will.  The time around July 7th, give or take a day or two, is particularly interesting as we see the Sun forming a T-Square with the ongoing Uranus / Pluto square that has been in play for several years now.  This will stir some to action, and for those who are not naturally impulsive then maybe it should.  Roughly two weeks after that, the Sun will conjoin Jupiter as part of the Grand Water Trine that will break up shortly after that later this year.  For some, this window will be the last opportunity to accomplish something of major importance.  Only you yourself can know what it is, but when you see it this month you should know that you may never see this opportunity again in your lifetime.

Here are the Solar Maps.  The “Gulf South” (aka “Gulf Coast”) of the United States looks particularly interesting, particularly the triangle formed by New Orleans, Jacksonville FL, and Miami.

We note that Washington DC, and that general corridor, has Pluto on the Descendant (7th house cusp).  In this sense, we expect little if any relief from geopoltical struggles.  Indeed, they may worsen.  We especially expect a high degree of activity involving the intelligence community at this time.

Europe is comparatively quiet, with most of the “action” found off of the coast of Portugal.  Eastern Europe seems to be getting a break from what has been a tense situation though it may be an unusually hot summer for them:

 Australia and New Zealand are mostly quiet with the exception of Darwin (which continues to be highly activated).  Brisbane also has a Saturn line dead center through it; while this is good for academics, most of the rest of the population will feel some period of difficulty.  This could be a period of economic difficulty.  Given that this is winter for this part of the world, the Saturn line for Brisbane could signal a winter storm for the coast of Australia where Brisbane is located.  (I would not be surprised to see a winter storm on the coast closest to Antartica, although one need not be an astrologer to have a hunch that this could be so at this time of the year.)

Finally, we have the Pacific Rim.  We note many complex interactions here, and we will leave interpretation of this to other astrologers.  [Subject to a possible update later.]  But, much is happening here:

We note that, as is often true, the Phillipines, Malaysia, and Indonesia are particularly active with many lines exerting influence.   The same is true for the parts of China closest to Japan. Although here in Texas not much news arrives from this part of the world, I can be certain that a great deal is happening.

Fort Hood Shootings Comparison Charts of 2009 and 2014 Events

Without much interpretation, here are the event charts for the two Fort Hood shootings.  Time for both is based on news reports and may be of limited accuracy.  First, the 2009 shooting chart:

Fort Hood 2 (2014) 2014-04-03_4-02-47Here is a Biwheel using Fort Hood #1 (2009) as the basis (inner chart):

Fort Hood BiWheel 2 2014-04-03_4-05-30And here is the synastry grid.  We note that, oddly, trines (at 22 degrees) seem to dominate:

Fort Hood Synastry Grid 2014-04-03_4-07-28

We also note that the first major variant of the 2014 Grand Cross is only a few weeks away.  This seems to be a dangerous period.

Also worthy of note: Fort Hood #2 had Algol at Midheaven.

April 2014 Full Moon

Here is the Full Moon chart for April 2014, less than a week prior to the Grand Cross alignment of April 20/21:

 

2014-04 April Full Moon 2014-03-31_21-22-41
We note that this is a lunar eclipse (one in a series).  Also, this is the controversial Full Moon associated with the “Blood Moon Prophecy” which has been in the news lately.

Vernal Equinox 2014 (First Day of Spring)

Here is the chart for the Vernal Equinox of 2014:

Vernal Equinox 2014 2014-03-17_23-18-18

 

We note that this happens near lunchtime in the Central Time Zone (CDT).  So, some people might “feel” this shift.  A grand water trine (Jupiter in Cancer, Moon in Scorpio, and Chiron & Neptune in Pisces) has perfected earlier (within the preceding 24 hours) and is disspating as this shift occurs.  If your chart is heavy on earth/water then you should consider “getting things done” before this shift occurs.  If you are more fire/air, then wait until afterwards (and after the Moon moves into Sadge).

Here is the U.S. Solar Map:

Vernal Equinox 2014 US Map 2014-03-17_23-28-35

I note that, curiously, the Sun at Midheaven aligns exactly on top of Dartmouth College in New Hampshire.  Which opens the question: what amazing developments will we see from that revered Ivy League school this year?

Mercury at Midheaven aligns over the top of the home of the author of this blog.  Maybe this will be a good year for writing?

The time after this full moon, and until the Vernal Equinox on March 20th, is the most powerful time this year for cleaning out the old.  Whatever needs to go to make way for the new, this is the time to send it to its new home wherever that may be.  This is a very dynamic year with powerful transformations in play, and you do not want to be stuck with the old.  So, whatever it is, clear it out and make way for that which is yet to come.

Here is the chart for the Pisces New Moon of March 1st.  We note that this new moon occurs on February 28th in some time zones.  In any case, this is effectively a late Friday night event more than a Saturday event.

Pisces New Moon 2014 2-26-2014 6-29-45 PM[Click to Enlarge]

The Sun / Moon conjunction here occurs close to the Chiron / Neptune Midpoint, emphasizing issues of healing and teaching.  The darker side of this is that some will be swindled or cheated on this evening.  If you are single and dating, please do know that everything may not be as it seems.  With Juno nearby, it is an especially bad night to cheat on someone.  If you are the cheatee, rather than the cheater, then this is the night to expose them for what they are.  This is your chance: don’t back down.

If you are in a bad relationship, leave it NOW!

Here is the Solar Map for the U.S.  We note that New England is particularly highly activated by Mars at the time of this new moon, indicating possible violence for some.

Grand Cross of Feb 17/18 2014

Things could go BOOM! this week.

Different events have been signaling the kinds of strained relations and flaring tempers that can be associated with the Grand Cross formation of 2014.  February 17/18 will show us the first alignment of the group (foreshadowing the Alignment of April 20th).

Grand Cross Feb 17 2-15-2014 11-00-49 PM

The above chart is indicated as the “beginning” by Solar Fire, but the alignment has been “beginning” for some months (years?) now.  Given that this is an outer planet chart and that it really governs (at least) the two 24 hour periods of Feb 17 and Feb 18, a chart of a “moment” may be questionable.  Regardless, here is the above data cast in “beginner” chart format under Solar Fire:

Grand Cross Feb 17 (beginner) 2-15-2014 11-08-21 PM

A bit more interesting is a chart that emerges the following morning (during rush hour for CST / EST):

Grand Cross Chiron Rises 2-15-2014 11-13-20 PMRetrograde Mercury, Sun, Neptune and Chiron are all in the 12th house in this chart; Saturn, North Node, Ceres, Vesta, and Mars are in the 8th house.   Moon has perfected a square to Jupiter and opposition to Uranus (forming a T-Square).  Hard to say, but we think this will be an “interesting” period, particularly for geography experiencing rush hour.

A grand trine follows on the 20th / 21st and Thor’s Hammers as well.  We should see an interesting week.

Thors Hammer Feb 21st 2-15-2014 11-17-53 PM

This appears to primarily affect the time period of rush hour on Thursday.  However, since it is primarily an outer planet alignment (Jupiter and Uranus with Saturn at the apex!), it really affects the days (and maybe weeks) preceding and following the alignment.  Frankly, it looks like a bit of a rough week.  (Adam Lanza’s birth chart had a Thor’s Hammer.  So did the chart for the Fukishima earthquake and tsunami in 2011.)  Some things might go boom.
