Should I Stay or Should I Go?

The period from April 16th to April 22nd will be a turning point, as indicated by a prolonged Focused Yod.  The Focused Yod requires a decision; one road is chosen and the other no longer available.

A Focused Yod had been in play from April 16th (Friday) until April 19th (Monday, tomorrow). This one is not a series involving Ascendants and Midheaven. In this one, Saturn is opposite Uranus, and the Sun on one side sextiles Neptune and Chiron on the other side. This is a period of crucial decision making, and the impact will be at least a year in length. (This will be a historically important period.  A real risk of one or more Coup d’état or revolution(s) is in play.)  This also includes “revolutions” in personal relationships.  This is an “out with the old and in with the new” period.  Should I stay or should I go?

Curiously, the Lunar Return for the recent Spring Equinox occurred during the beginning of this period.  (That is, Moon Conjunct Algol.)  For those who do not regularly read this blog, Moon Conjunct Algol precisely at the time of the Spring Equinox was the marker for the earthquakes, mine explosions, airplane crashes, and volcanoes of the past month.  (For more info, click and read the link.)  In the words of Economists, it could be called a “leading indicator.”  For you personally, should should take a hard look at what has happened since March 20th.  Is this how you want your life to be?  Or are you willing to take a risk, maybe a dangerous risk, to try something new?

Or have “things” been too dangerous lately and you believe you should stick close to home?

In this post, we will also consider the chart of Venus touching this sensitive point, the following Moon / Mars Conjunction, and a few patterns in that window.  (And, we will consider Sun, Mercury, & Venus touching this point, along with maps, in an upcoming article.)  The period of April 21/22 has great potential to be at least as volatile as anything we have seen in the past 30 days. This kind of thing will continue until roughly the middle of May.

That said, here is the chart for the beginning of the Focused Yod period:

Here, too, is the Lunar Return Chart for the recent Spring Equinox:

This Lunar Return chart, with the Moon at Algol, coincides with the beginning of the Focused Yod period of April 16 to April 19.  The Moon, Saturn, and Chiron/Neptune form a Triangle (looks like one of the Huber Patterns) of Moon Trine Saturn, Saturn Inconjunct Chiron/Neptune, and Chiron/Neptune Square Moon.  This Triangle conveys a sense of urgency combined with confusion peaking at 28/29 Taurus.

Finally, Moon, Mercury, and Venus are in the 8th House of Death & Taxes.

It was a very bad Friday night for a first date.

Having looked at the Lunar Return chart, let us turn to April 21st (also labelled “Lunar Return” by Solar Fire), when Venus touches this same sensitive point (Venus rules Taurus, where Algol is located, so this is important).  The quickly following Moon / Mars conjunction appears involved (which is at 9 Leo, possibly interacting with the 8 Scorp / 8 Cap points of the 2012 Winter’s Solstice).

Once a month, the Moon touches Mars.  By itself, that is not particularly odd or unusual.  But, this conjunction (a potentially violent or dangerous one) occurs within a few hours of Venus touching Algol.  A Thor’s Hammer (or God’s Fist) is located on each side of the precise moment of this aspect.  (Charts omitted.)

Here is Moon Conjunct Mars, a few hours after Venus precisely touches the Lunar Return point (Algol), April 22nd:

The Thor’s Hammer pattern indicates periods of perceived urgency that are often associated with violence, explosions, and rushing in where others fear to tread.  These are times when you should think twice before doing something rash.  But, some of you will use this energy to switch to a newer, better, environment.  Only you know your situation.

Here are the Thor’s Hammer (God’s Fist) periods for April 21/22:
