For most people this will be a good day. The only square is Venus square Uranus which is notorious for kinky sex and unusual romantic relationships. But, it could also bring a “surprise” from the standpoint of finances and financial dealings. In any case, it is a continuation from the Venus / Pluto conjunction yesterday.
Sun BiQuintiles the North Node, and that means that we just might have a very smart idea about how to handle some hard karma. Mercury trines Jupiter, and this is known as a particularly benevolent aspect which helps in areas involving transportation and communication.
The only real “downside” is that the Moon is void in Capricorn for most of the day. That votes for sticking to routine, but if you do decide to become experimental in some way just realize that you might have a “re-do” somewhere in your future.
Sunday February 7th
We are now in “Dark of the Moon” before the New Moon that marks the beginning of the Chinese New Year. Vesta opposes Black Moon Lilith, and issues regarding “kinky sex” continue for some people. For whatever reason, the time for those issues to bubble to the surface has arrived, and some people will be compelled to reveal their true nature. Others of us will deduce from tell-tale signs what some are unable to say.
On a milder note, Venus is semisextile Sun, and this gives the day a benevolent tone for most people. Venus is sextile Mars (there is love and sex, AGAIN), and Sun squares Mars. Moon enters Aquarius, and in more than one way many of us will realize that we have entered a new phase.
Monday February 8th
Here is out post analyzing the New Moon on February 8th that starts the Chinese Year of the Fire Monkey.
We often recommend to our more serious students, the ones using this blog to develop a deeper understanding of astrological aspects, that they use retrospective reviews in their life. One tool that can help with that is FutureMe. You can send a note to yourself to review certain aspects in the future. (This is also a way to track “New Years Resolutions.”)
You can also find a comprehensive review of Moon’s aspects, void of course, and other events at “This Week in Astrology.” \We also now have up a page that lists the Full Moons of 2016 as well as a page that lists Rare and Absent Patterns for 2016.
- Mystic Rectangles: short daily forecasts and low volume of posts; excellent for subscriptions; best fit for astrology for mobile devices; if you are looking for calendar pages with aspects (posted the night before) then you want to go to this site.
- Lost Dudeist Astrology: a potpourri of articles that range from the absurd to the sublime that typically cover astrology but sometimes other topics as well. Grand Trines sticks to current astrological events whereas LDA has astrological theory, Tarot, opinions, and so forth.
You may also be interested in the reblogs of content by other astrologers on the posts page. Most of this material focuses on current forecasts. (If you are looking for general astrology and metaphysics discussions, try Lost Dudeist Astrology instead.)
Here is a preview of 2016. (That link opens to an external blog.)
In November of 2015, the first of three Saturn square Neptune aspects perfected, along with a Full Moon. More of these will happen in 2016. The Jupiter Trine Pluto aspect that perfected on Sunday October 11th of 2015 continues to be quite powerful, the first of three (with the last perfecting in 2016). It will continue to exert a mostly favorable influence for most people (but particularly the earth signs, notably Virgo and Capricorn). Along with the Jupiter Opposite Neptune aspect that perfected on September 17th, 2015, these three planets (Jupiter, Neptune, and Pluto) form an outer planet triangular pattern in Earth and Water that shapes the larger decisions of the latter months of 2015 and the first part of 2016.
Later in 2016, Jupiter will move into Leo and a new set of patterns (and issues) will come into play, particularly as Jupiter will form a (huge, outer planet) yod with Neptune (Pisces) / Pluto (Capricorn). Big decisions will face us (collectively) and for some of us (individually) they will be the most important decisions of our lives. Everyone will feel as if we are at a fork in the road to some greater or lesser degree.
We are working on a project on Long Term Forecasts. Frankly, we do not expect to complete this project in our lifetime. Your feedback, as we go, is appreciated.
