The event obviously tied to this full moon (typhoon Haiyan aka Yolanda) occurred BEFORE the culmination of this most malefic of FM’s. We provide the chart, here, set in first in Tacloban (we note the Moon at MC and the Sun at the IC; the IC is the location of a “grave” and the FM culminates close to midnight local time) and then Plano. We also note that this was the FM following a Mercury retrograde, and it occurs during a period of difficulty discussed in an earlier post. We also note a sextile, a tight one, between Pluto (death & rebirth) and Chiron (healing, lessons learned) at this time.
If your personal belief system supports such a notion, this would be a good time to have a ceremony, perhaps just lighting a candle, to honor and remember the dead.

2013 has been a challenging year for all of us. Time has just not been available to address a number of important astrological events in October and November of 2013. We will analyze these in hindsight. (Not our preferred approach, but necessary in this case.) Starting some time in December 2013 (or possibly January 2014), we should provide more of the kinds of analytic posts that we have provided in the past. Stay tuned!

Venus trines Neptune roughly twice a year, and that event is associated with short-lived romances. Sometimes the “romance” is a business deal. Venus is beauty, and Neptune is the higher form of Venus that often involves deception. (Or is it that beauty inherently involves deception: cosmetic surgery and teeth whitening and the cosmetics counter in the drug store, what is all that about?)
This year, a variety of other aspects are involved and make the trine on September 14th more interesting. Moon (both the more general aspect of being female and the more general aspect of, well, everybody) conjoins Pluto (sex, power, control, intrigue, maybe death) and square Uranus (surprises, sometimes innovation but often accidents) earlier in the day, prior to Venus aspecting Neptune. It is quite a mix.
But, as they say on late night infomercials, “there’s more.” Mars has recently squared Saturn (is this a big deal? If you don’t think so, take a look at the birth chart of Adolph Hitler. Grant Lewi seemed to think Mars Square Saturn was the key to understanding Hitler), with Mars in Leo (Kings, Management, power (overt)) and Saturn in Scorpio (same as Pluto: sex, power (underhanded), control, intrigue and death). Ouch! AND Mars is applying to a trine to Uranus (described in the previous paragraph).
Arguably, Jupiter is part of some kind of “super grand trine”: Jupiter and (1) Venus / Neptune; (2) Venus / Chiron; (3) Saturn / Neptune; and (4) Saturn / Chiron. That is, we can identify four (4) inter-linked grand-trines here. This can be very good for fortune and fame for some people, but the Venus / Neptune connection tends to not last long. (Can Saturn “fix” that problem in this case? Unsure.)
A number of other major aspects are in play here as well. While this is not a “textbook” pattern like a Diamond, I think we can safely say that something *BIG* is operating here astrologically.
And, what comes on the heels of this is even more interesting: Venus moves on to conjoin Saturn (causing a number of projects formed now to come crashing down when “reality” sets in), the North Node (“karma,” and god only knows what that will mean in this case), and then another precise trine, on September 20th, with Chiron (healing and “lessons learned”).
I think some interesting babies will be “made” now (both actual human babies as well as metaphorical ones, meaning various projects or business ventures). Many, if not most, of the romances started now will not last. But, the children will, and they will be very, very interesting. Here are the two charts (really, I should case four, but I am just showing Venus/Neptune and Venus/Chiron, omitting the Venus/Saturn and Venus/Node charts as an exercise left to the more enterprising reader):

This is a followup to the earlier Uranus Square Pluto post. We focus here on the November square.
Here is the chart:
[Click either Image to enlarge that image]
We note that this occurs in the early morning hours, before sunrise, on the day after the United States holiday of Halloween. Also, this occurs on the Day of the Dead. Uranus brings surprises, and Pluto brings the most potent of transformations, often those involving death, poisons, police, and intelligence agencies.
Moon is just past opposition of Uranus, Pluto continues to be conjunct Facies (the Eye of the Archer, considered by many to be the most violent point in the Zodiac and nearly as fearsome as Algol), and Mars opposes / Chiron conjoins the Arabic Part of Catastrophe.
Sounds like a pretty scary Halloween (including the few days leading up to Halloween). (If dangerous days occur, we think that some may actually occur within the week or so prior to this aspect. Part of this has to do with the Jupiter / Pluto opposition that precedes this. Also, the Libra New Moon creates a particularly stressful Grand Cross preceding this, the topic of another post.)
The Midwest, and particularly DFW (Dallas Fort Worth, including Plano) are lit up on the U.S. Map:
For my several visitors from Shreveport LA: yes, you are strongly activated by this map. So is Little Rock, Oklahoma City, and Wichita KS. If you have dealings with two or more of these cities (such as a route you drive), then you may strongly “feel” this event. As mentioned previously, the precipitating event may occur as early as the Libra new moon that PRECEDES this aspect.
Here is the map for Europe and the UK:
While we see modest activations of Ireland and Portugal, by far the most active area in Europe is the border between Lithuania and Poland. (What is THAT about?)
The Western Coast of Australia, particularly the Southwest (including Perth), may be the most activated place on the planet:
If you can avoid the violence prone qualities of this period of time, powerful insights (innovations in particular) can be had. This can be a good time for innovations in medicine, electronics, or especially combinations of medicine and electronics. Maybe WAIMR will have a breakthrough of some kind, perhaps in cancer research, during this period.
Here is the corresponding map for Southeast Asia, also notably complex and activated. The sea between Saudia Arabia and Iran is in issue, Delhi India is activated, and, well, look at the map for the rest….

A large number of Thor’s Hammer periods are with us through the end of the year. September 25th through October 11th is a particularly dangerous period, but the many Thor’s hammer periods indicate the time through the end of the year is risky in many ways (especially when coupled with the Uranus / Pluto square). The risk of war, a really BIG war, is much larger than many realize.

This is an interesting full moon for those that celebrate the changing of the seasons. It occurs just a very few days before the equinox.

Here is the chart for Ariel Castro found hanging. The Pluto / MC alignment makes a strong statement:
[Click to Enlarge]
Exactly what this chart means is difficult to tell. However, independent of the chart, his death so soon seems too merciful to him. The details of his hanging have not been made public. If this was a suicide, then how did such a high profile prisoner achieve that?
If this was a murder, one that likely will never be investigated in a meaningful way or prosecuted, then the intruder likely entered the cell at 9:06 PM +/- 1 minute (when Uranus, surprises, rose). Uranus enters the 12th and Neptune aligns on the 12th house cusp a minute later. The intruder used deception, perhaps someone pretending to be checking on the “well being” of Castro. Another two minutes later, and Neptune enters the 11th, placing Uranus and Neptune in mutual reception by house. The deception, and element of surprise, deepens.
By 9:10 PM, the struggle had began but did not last long. Only a few minutes without oxygen were needed for the deed to be mostly complete, with him “found” by “about 9:20.” (Probably between 9:18 PM and 9:19 PM, when Pluto was at Midheaven).
Neptune conjoins Midheaven at 10:48 PM, with Pluto entering the 8th (House of Death) a few minutes before that. He was “prounounced” at 10:52 PM.
This is all speculation, of course. And, it is very sinister on many levels. His death means that we have been cheated of the justice that would have come from him being incarcerated for a very, very long time.
But, maybe he really did commit suicide.

The July Full Moon this year, as is true most years, has the Moon in Capricorn and Sun in Cancer. Capricorn is not a favorable place for the Moon (in most cases), and the Sun does not prosper in Cancer (the Moon’s home) either.
Oops, I suppose that we are still affected by the Mercury retrograde / change in station / storm. I see, now, that this is a Leo / Aquarius full moon. Those do not happen as often in July, and this one is at the critical zero (0) degrees mark!
Additionally, this one comes upon the heels of a Mercury direct station combined with a historic outer planet grand trine. (Indeed, the end of the Mayan calendar in December did not gain my attention the way this particular Grand Trine has done.)
We produced predictions earlier this year that this year would tend to be marked by disasters in a manner similar to 2010. Fortunately, we have not had any similar to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill or the nuclear meltdown in Japan. Still, reading the news lists a remarkable number of events, ranging from earthquakes to liberation of people held captive for many years (in both Houston and Ohio) to fertilizer plant explosions. Hopefully, these will start to recede, but the window for disasters is open through the end of the year for this particular year.
That said, here is the full moon chart, both in beginner format and horary format:
As a bit of a footnote, I still believe that an important word leader (perhaps several) will be born this year. This particular full moon would be a candidate for the time of birth of such a person. (Various possibilities exist, but this is certainly one of them.) The zero (0) degree mark here is a strong punctuation mark regarding the leadership potential of individuals born at this time. I feel strongly that many of us will look back, in hindsight, and see the events of this summer as being particularly important in the years to come.
Update: when I wrote the above words, I was not anticipating the Royal Birth that occurred. (I do not live in the UK, and lately I have not had time to keep up with UK events.) However, I will state that I believe that this particular individual will be one of the most important in the Royal Family in a very long time, decades if not centuries.
This person will feel a huge amount of weight as they grapple with some remarkably difficult decisions through the course of their life. They will wrestle endlessly with a internal war between compassion and prudence. And, sometimes, they will find themselves at a loss for words. But, in the end, they will have the potential for some of the greatest leadership that the Royal Family has ever seen. (Keep in mind, as you read my words, that I am not an Englishman. I am an American. And, I am not just an American. I am a Texan. Frankly, we don’t bow to anyone, although sometimes we tip our hats to those that deserve it.)
Here is the chart, based on available news time:
I suppose, in hindsight, that analyzing the Cancer / Capricorn polarity was the most appropriate after all!
That said, we see no air and very little fire. Leo / Aquarius are intercepted signs, but they do not contain any major planets. Venus has barely entered Virgo. Moon in Cap is effectively inconjunct, and Algol is either setting or has just set (is on the 7th house cusp). I would be greatly surprised if he were to be an intellectual. (But, I am reluctant to rule out anything for a newborn.) Relationships, particularly romances, will tend to be difficult. He might be a bit of a “ladies man” (Algol setting) in some ways, but with Venus at 0 Virgo he will actually be rather conservative in private despite any public image. He has the ruler of the 10th (Virgo, Mercury) in the 8th with Mars and Jupiter. I would not be surprised to see him die a hero’s death in battle at an early age. If that does happen, he will become emblematic of an important turning point for England (and the UK).
If he does survive his youth, he has the potential to be an unusually good money manager. He might make certain significant financial decisions for England, and he has the potential to lead England into a new era of prosperity.

Here is the chart for the New Moon on June 8, 2013:
This is the last New Moon before we begin moving more fully into the Grand Water Trine alignments that will be maximal in July, 2013. If you tend to be favored more by fire and air than by water, you would want to “get things done” at this time or soon after.
May June 20th, we will be in the “storm” of the upcoming Mercury Retrograde, which will begin June 26th. By then, a major shift of some kind will have become apparent, both for us collectively and as individuals.

What kind of monster imprisons three women in his basement for years? That is what more than a few people would like to know about Cleveland suspect Ariel Castro. (We note that (a) he is innocent until proven guilty but that (b) the evidence against him is overwhelming.)
Specific birth time and location are not available for him at this time. (We do not have access to his birth certificate, and specifics are not yet available.) So, we have created a bi-wheel for his reported date of birth and the date of the rescue. While the positions of the Moon and the Ascendant for both are in question, the resulting chart is still “interesting.”
[Click Image to Enlarge]
Our method of rectification is simple. But, first, keep in mind that we are operating with little to work with, and this is just a “best guess.” That said, we looked at the charts and looked for the position of the moon on the day of rescue in relation to Castro’s birth chart. We are guessing that the rescue happened in daylight hours though we are unsure whether closer to noon or sunset. (We are using noon.)
We have adjusted Castro’s birth chart so that the Moon is just above the 7th house cusp (relationships and open enemies) on the day of the rescue. Our other choices would be to put the Moon at the Midheaven (six hours earlier) or the IC (six hours later).
But, with the Moon on the 7th house cusp we note that Mercury, Mars, the Sun, the South Node, Pallas, and Venus are in an 8th house stellium (the 8th being the house of death as well as torture; we would also consider alternative versions that place these planets in a 12th house stellium of imprisonment and misfortune).
We note that transiting Juno (spousal relationships and especially issues involving treachery to spouses and family members) either recently aspected his Moon or is in the process of doing so.
Below is a “synastry grid” (usually used to identify compatibility between two people, but used here to identify relationships between Castro’s birth chart and the date of the rescue:

For now, that is all we have to say. But, with more data later, we might update this article or write a subsequent article.
