Using the Electional Search feature of Solar Fire, I have compiled the following list of Quintile Kite periods for 2013.  In case you have not read my discussions of these elsewhere on this blog, Quintile Kites are superb periods for creative problem solving.  Whether you are an engineer, mathematician, poet, film-maker, or novelist, these should be optimal ideas for creating your best ideas.  (You should consider an “artist’s date” during this period.)

[At some later point, I may cast charts of selected periods.]

Here is the list for 2013:

Milica’s Chart

Reader Milica has requested a chart, writing the following:

I am a female taurus. I have a Pluto, Saturn and Mars in Scorpio. How would this transit affect me? Thanks

Here is her natal chart:

Milica 1-7-2013 1-12-04 AM

[Click to Enlarge]

Milica will experience her Saturn Return this year, and given the events this summer, the experience will be a particularly powerful one for her.  She will deal with a number of emotional issues.  If she is married she may divorce, and if she is single she might marry.  Having a child is also possibility.  These are all things that often happen with the first saturn return, as well as subsequent ones.

Her Sun and Moon are bi-quintile, and that aspect can provide genius.  We are guessing that, given her taurus sun her predilection is music or sculpture but it might be another field, such as finance.  Moon is near Uranus (conjunct if you use loose orbs) and that confirms that she either is very bright or could be.  Unfortunately, the South Node is nearby, and that means that she probably only sticks with things she can do easily rather than a pursuit of magnifying her strengths into what they could be.  The Saturn Return may bring her an awareness of this genius if it is currently dormant.

Saturn has touched her natal Pluto recently, and “things have been difficult.”  She may have experienced a death in the family.  Saturn is active in the eighth house, and she is likely dealing with death, taxes, power struggles, or a mix of all three.  She may have come into an inheritance or may be in line to do so within the next year or two.

Mars opposite Venus leaves her as being rather sexy, likely physically attractive, to potential suitors.  But, if she is available, she must choose wisely.  Venus, Sun, and Chiron, by sign, oppose Mars & Saturn, by sign.  This leaves her with an ongoing series of struggles and can sometimes make decision making very difficult.  Failure to decide, of course, is also a decision.  Any potential suitor must be able to “live with this,” and see her as she is, rather than as merely a sex object.  And, more than a few suitors may be intimidated by her creative intelligence and, effectively, coerce her to hide or dampen the abilities that are her birthright.

She has Pallas in the 12th, and this is double-edged.  Sometimes she can depend too heavily on her intelligence.  If she is indeed very bright, then her trap is easy to see: she becomes dependent upon last minute preparation, and then she fails in goals that require even the brightest students to make serious preparations.  But, if she can overcome this tendency to procrastinate, then she can be a creator of elegant solutions.

Kalina’s Chart

Reader Kalina writes the following:

All I read above is so very interesting for me. Been through difficult times lately and my Saturn crisis is to follow. Just wondering in which way I’ll be tested this time. Got Mercury,Sun, Lilith, Venus and Neptune in Scorpio, all in 4-th house and going through Chiron return. What shoult I pay attention to?
Thanks in advance for your kind help, grandtrines.

Here is her natal chart:

kalina 1-6-2013 12-34-32 AM

[Click to Enlarge]

Kalina, with a late Aquarian Moon, cares deeply about justice and other people.  For someone who has so many below ground planets, and a Scorpio at that, she cannot resist the temptation to help others.  She probably prefers to do so anonymously, having been burned by scammers and cheats along the way.  She has recently experienced her Chiron return, typically a once in a lifetime event, and the combination of transiting Chiron and transiting Neptune near her birth Chiron have left her very sensitive.  Indeed, she might even be a bit psychic currently.  We would recommend that she pay close attention to her dreams and dreamworld.  They likely have useful messages for her.

I am seeing a fair number of people with Chiron returns visiting this site.  (That happens at roughly 50 years of age.)  I have a broad message for all of you: TEACH!  Chiron is the story of the wounded healer whose healing required teaching of the lessons that have been learned.  And, this is the message of the Chiron return: if you have anything useful to teach to anyone who wishes to listen, TEACH!

In your case, Kalina, you have the added bonus of Neptune empowering your teaching.  Neptune brings you the power of dreams, poetry, music, photography, and videography.  And, Neptune brings lessons learned in dealing with addictions and other illnesses.  You can draw on these.

She has a number of planets and asteroids in Scorpio and in the 4th house.  Her nature is to be private, and this can conflict with her desire to help others.  She cares deeply about her family.  As a Scorpio with so many scorpio planets, she can inflict great pain if she so desires, but she greatly prefers not to do so.  Instead, she would prefer to help heal relationships whenver possible (if she is operating in the “high form”).

If she has not worked in the healthcare field, then she should consider doing this if she is contemplating a career change.  As she is already aware, great changes have been happening in her life and are likely to continue to happen as Saturn conjoins her Scorpio planets in the next two years.  She will be an individual who can greatly benefit from this summer’s grand trine / grand sextile patterns, and this would be a good time to launch the changes into the area she chooses to focus for the next few years.

Early 2013 Diamonds

Tags: , , , ,

The first quarter of 2013 contains two diamonds.  One starts on January 29th, a few days after the Stretched Pentagram near the Full Moon (and after the State of the Union speech).  The other occurs a few days after the Vernal Equinox (starting on March 24th).  (Both last overnight.)

Here is the chart for the first one, on January 29th:

Diamond 1 Jan 29th 1-3-2013 9-11-22 PM

And here is the March 24th Diamond (a few days after the Vernal Equinox):

Diamond 2 March 24th 1-3-2013 9-13-22 PM

Diamonds are comparatively rare.  We think the March 24th Diamond is particularly interesting since the Moon opposes Mercury, and Mercury is at the midpoint of Chiron / Neptune.

Zane Natal Chart

Reader Zane writes the following:

Wow, this is all very fascinating and confusing to me at the same time. I am new to all of this since reading a weekly horoscope as a Libra recently and then hearing about the whole Saturn-in-my-sign thing. Was relieved to hear it is leaving soon, but then thought maybe I shouldn;t be too relieved yet. Can you help me understand a little about what to be wary of based on where things are on this chart, or perhaps direct me to where I could learn more about it? I appreciate any info.

Here is the natal chart:

Zanet 1-2-2013 1-26-49 AM

[Click to Enlarge]

We note that Zane has a Gemini ascendant at 28 degrees.  He is likely generally perceived as sociable and friendly.  He may have been born into a family that encouraged this, and sometimes it seems to be his fate to play this role.  But, with most of his planets below ground, Zane carries secrets, and he carries quite a few of them.

With Venus in Virgo conjunct the IC and the Moon in Capricorn in the 7th house, we can see that women are particularly important in Zane’s life.  He has, and probably will continue to, needed to foster the growth of his daughter(s), sister(s), and mother.  If married, his wife is quite important to him.  Given these planets in earth signs, finances are likely an issue in these relationships.  He may also have some difficulty expressing his emotions in these relationships.  What comes out may be anger.

Saturn has touched his Sun and opposed its natal place (demi-return).  The demi-return signals adolescence at 14 years of age (roughly) and middle age at 42 years of age (roughly).  He is at a point where he is re-evaluating his values particularly if he has teenagers or children leaving home.

This year, transiting Saturn will touch natal Mercury and natal Neptune the following year, both in the 5th house.  Although many have seen him as “lucky” over the course of his life, he may feel as if “his luck has run out.”  But, this is just Saturn’s way of letting him know that he needs to re-evaluate his values and priorities.

If he is not doing so already, he could consider a teaching position in his career field.

Natal Chart for Cindy B

Our reader Cindy writes the following:

I have had a rough time, and feel like I’m having trouble finding myself. I’ve been looking into the effects of Saturn in Scorpio — how will this affect me? I am hoping it will be positive, as its been difficult for awhile. Thanks so much!

Here is her natal chart:


[Click to Enlarge]

This clustering of planets is above ground and focused in the 10th, 11th, and 12th houses.  She is a strong individual who is not afraid to speak her mind and can think for herself.  Her friends (11th house) and career (10th house) are important to her.  Chances are good that she is not home much, but if she is then it probably means she is home sick.  (This does happen some.)

Career can be a struggle at times, and we would not be surprised if she works in a legal field, in law enforcement, or deals with taxes.  (Mars is in Libra in the 10th.)  She may have some trouble expressing herself when she is upset, however (Mars in Libra, intercepted).

Her teen and early adult years were relatively happy, but she has come to a turning point, experiencing setbacks in the past few years.  In a sense, she is now having to “grow up.”  Her Saturn Return process will begin in 2014, and she is starting to feel it now.  As Saturn touches her Scorpio planets, including Sun in Scorpio, she’ll have to make some decisions about what to keep and what to let go.  And, she will have to let go of some things.  (This is NOT a good time to whip out the credit card to buy toys.)

With Neptune in the 12th, she is quite intuitive.  She may have an interest in poetry, music (including singing), photography, theatre, or video production.  She is also capable of working as a counselor or social worker if she desires, though her career house says she tends to be more business oriented. Her Moon/Jupiter in Aquarius (and first house) confirms the tendency to desire employment as a counselor or social worker.  And, again, let us emphasize that she needs to avoid creating debt and pay off any debt that she has.

Regardless, she should develop these Neptune energies, and the time to start working on this would be this Spring & Summer.  A few classes in a Neptune topic (poetry, musc, etc. as listed previously) this Spring / Summer could be a good idea.

We would not be surprised to see her go back to school full time in either 2014 or 2015.

Stretched Pentagram of January 26th (Full Moon of January 2013)

We have a “Stretched Pentagram” that will form beginning January 26th and end on the 27th.  Here is the chart:

Stretched Pentagram of Jan 26th 1-2-2013 1-31-32 AM

[Click to Enlarge]

To say the least, this is an “interesting” pattern: A Full Moon Pentagram!  The Full Moon culminates during the formation of this pattern, and this pattern is also just before the State of the Union address this year.   (The State of the Union Address has been set for February 12th of 2013.)

Here is the U.S. Map:

Stretched Pentagram US Map 1-2-2013 1-41-15 AM

[Click to Enlarge]

We see that Venus has a line through DC (favoring DC) at this time, Ceres a line through Phoenix AZ, Hygeia through Los Angeles (healthcare), and Vesta through Oakland.  (Will be interesting to see how Californians react to the State of the Union.)

Here is the map for Europe and the UK:

Stretched Pentagram Europe and UK 1-2-2013 1-56-53 AM

We see the UK activated by the curious combination of Vesta and Jupiter.

Here is the map for Asia, including India:

And here is the World Map:

We also have a Diamond pattern forming a few days later on January 29th.
