Since we have now moved past the two recent eclipses, the time has come to put up the New Moon chart.  (As before, I will periodically expand and update this post until we are close to the event.)

For now, here is the chart:

Quintile Kite of December 7, 2012

If you are a creative type, you should know that a Quintile Kite will happen overnight December 7th until the morning of December 8th.  (This is great for Night Owls.)

Here is the chart:

With Vesta, Moon, Chiron, and the Sun involved, this is a good time for insightful solutions involving teaching and healing.  Vesta takes no prisoners, so ideas generated at this time can be particularly powerful solutions.  Choose carefully what your focus may be at this time.

Several of you have landed here by searching for Modulus Sort Strips for the upcoming eclipse.  (For those of you who do not know what this is, this is a graphical way of looking at aspects in a chart.  It is just a different viewpoint.)  Here they are:

If you are interested in Modulus Sort Strips, then obviously you want the Midpoint Trees as well.  Here they are, too:

So, for those of you who know what these are, and how to work with them, enjoy!

(And, yes, the midpoint trees clearly demonstrate this is a very active period!)

Full Moon, November 2012 (and Lunar Eclipse)

Here is the chart for the upcoming Full Moon, which is also an eclipse.  (Eclipses come in pairs, and they are linked together in “families” of eclipses that are known are “series.”)

This is the Solar Fire 7 “Beginners Chart” version of the November 2012 Full Moon, which is also an “appulse lunar eclipse.” It is set in Plano, Texas

After a bit of thought, it came to me that this is the last Full Moon prior to the Winter’s Solstice.  If you have an interest in the Mayan calendar (the “long count”), then this is a particularly important Full Moon for you.

As described below, this FM is characterized by multiple yods.  Yods involve linked quincunxes that represent decisions and decision making.  This FM is about a huge fork in the road for all of us.  The decisions made at this time will affect us for many years to come.

As you can tell, we cannot see the eclipse from our vantage point in Plano.  As previously, we have the U.S. map here.

I find interesting that the Moon & Chiron form a “Thor’s Hammer” with the Midheaven in New York City shortly before time of the Full Moon:

Since it is two planets aspecting the Midheaven, I do not believe that we will see the intensity with this TH that happens with some of the others.  (Perhaps someone can identify where the Thor’s Hammer occurs in exact aspect with the Midheaven at the time of culmination the the Full Moon.  It is somewhere other than NYC.)

What interests me more is the Thor’s Hammer of November 30th.  Placing Mercury at Midheaven creates an alignment on top of the Mississippi river, highlighting that the problem there may worsen.  (If barge traffic is interrupted, this will affect the entire nation and perhaps the global economy.  The purple line in the Solar Map, below, is Mercury (transportation), and it aligns on top of Vicksburg, MS at this time.  Vicksburg is an important point with regard to river traffic.)

See, also: River Level Reports.

Here is the chart (set at Vicksburg).

This chart (above) speaks for itself. For those who are new to reading charts:

(1) Mars (violence) & Pluto (death) in the 12th house of Self-Deception and Self-Undoing.  (Also: 12th house = Pisces = flowing water.)  Very unfavorable.

(2)  Neptune (= 12th = Pisces) & Chiron (healing & things needing to be healed) in 1st house (and Pisces, as they will be for years).

(3) Uranus (surprise / accidents / disruptions) in 2nd house of finances.

This analysis falls into the category of “things I hope I am wrong about.”  (Food for millions flows on the barge traffic of the Mississippi river.  Of course, we can use trucks for that traffic.  But, prices would rise significantly.)

Here is a list of patterns, generated by Planetary Aspects and Transits (PAT):

First of all, noting how many yods are associated with this Full Moon, we suggest that this is a period of important, and major, decisions for many people.  No matter which choice is made, people will sense some disappointment about the option not followed.  This period will be viewed with nostalgia by many in the years to come.

Conjunctions

Mars    conjunct (0°33′)      Pluto   begins  November  13, 2012,  and ends December 11, 2012  (29 days)  This is a period with extreme potential for violence.

Venus   conjunct (1°45′)      Saturn  begins  November 17, 2012,  and ends December 5, 2012   (19 days)  Both are in Scorpio, and this is also a period of difficulty for most.

Sun     opposite (5°8′)       Jupiter begins  November 24, 2012,  and ends December 10, 2012  (17 days)  A tendency to spend too much money (or unnecessarily), overeat, or consume too much alcohol (or drugs) exists in this period.

Squares

Uranus  square (3°29′)        Pluto   begins March 18, 2011,     and ends June 15, 2016      (5 years, 91 days)  This is the defining aspect of the next five years.

Mars    square (4°2′)         Uranus  begins November 14, 2012,  and ends December 2, 2012   (19 days)  This amplifies the Mars / Pluto conjunction.

Venus   trine (7°40′)         Neptune begins November 15, 2012,  and ends November 28, 2012  (14 days)  We are in love with love.  Romance can be unrealistic now, but if it does last then it is the best of all.  Note & compare the Venus / Saturn conjunction.

New Moon, November 2012

Update: When I first cast this chart, I did not realize that it was for an eclipse.  As you may know, all Solar Eclipses are New Moons, but not vice versa.  I have added, here, a map of Australia and New Zealand that shows the total eclipse lines across northern Australia with totality near Darwin and Cairns.  Northern Australia is your best bet if you want to observe, the rest of the path is over ocean in the South Pacific.

If the election is not resolved by this New Moon, then it could go as long as the end of the Mecury Retrograde (end of November).  Here is the New Moon chart, with more commentary to come later:  [Update: oddly, although we know the winner of the election, it is NOT fully resolved (due to Florida, again).]

Let’s face it, most of this chart is above ground.  Only Jupiter in the 2nd is below ground (and in Gemini, at that).  Let’s just say that big money issues are in play, but that few other things are secret with this New Moon.

We have included the U.S. map here.  To be certain, the U.S. is *HIGHLY* activated by this New Moon.  Do not be surprised if somehow certain Southern states play a big roll somehow post-election.

One rule of “good web design” (from a certain perspective) is to design your site so that people never have to leave.  I break that rule all the time.  The fact is, sometimes you need a different perspective.  That said, I like Jude Cowell’s writing on this New Moon and the previous Full Moon.

I think that this article at Darkstar provides us with a warning about this Scorpio new moon.  The analysis is detailed, but, to my way of thinking, the fact that it is an eclipse in Scorpio is sufficiently scary all by itself.  (Maybe Halloween is coming a bit later this year?)

If you are a Wiccan, then you might like this post.

While researching other discussions of this upcoming eclipse, I found this http://www.reddit.com/r/astrologyblogs/  It is a potpourri of various astrology blog postings on Reddit.
