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.
