Saturday November 29, 2014 Yod and more

The afternoon and evening of Saturday, November 29, 2014 is complex and contradictory.  The triggering event appears to be Moon conjunct Chiron (a once a month event that gradually changes character over a longer time window).  While we will cover a number of patterns in play, one particularly leaps out: a Yod involving Chiron, Juno, and the North Node:

2014-11-29 Chiron-Juno-Node Yod

We point this out because, post-Thanksgiving, this pattern tells us something obvious without astrology: some relationships, including marriages, will break up this Saturday.  Thanksgiving will be the “straw that broke the camel’s back,” but some people will not fully shut the door (or walk out the door) until Saturday afternoon (or possibly Saturday evening).  And, SOME of you NEED to do this.  (I am referring to anyone in an abusive situation.  In fact, if you have to leave on Friday while they are away at work, then don’t wait until Saturday.  Safety trumps everything.)

Here is the basic “beginners” chart for Moon conjunct Chiron:

2014-11-29 Moon Conjunct Chiron (Beginners)[Click to Enlarge]

Juno, one leg of the Yod, is about trust and loyalty (AND betrayal).  The Node, the other leg of the Yod, is about doing the tough and difficulty thing that is “the right thing.”  Moon (both our inner state and the current state of affairs) joins Chiron (the wounded healer) to activate this relationship fully.  If you are in a bad relationship, this is a good time to leave without any intent to return.

Polarizing influences exist in the sky in the form of both a Rosetta and a Hele.  This means that people (possibly family members) will “take sides” (or polarize) in this dispute.

Here is the Rosetta:

2014-11-29 Moon-Hygeia-Ceres-Node Rosetta (Beginners)

[Click to Enlarge]

Note that Moon/Chiron is allied with Hygeia (health and healthcare issues).

Here is the Hele:

2014-11-29 Moon-Uranus-Pallas-Juno Hele (Beginners)

[Click to Enlarge]

In the Hele, Uranus and Pallas are involved along with Moon/Chiron and Juno.  Thus the Hele is interconnected with, and overlaps with, the Yod.  Uranus brings in both unpredictability and insights; Pallas emphasizes insights, awareness, and the need to take action.  This set of issues must be resolved.

Uranus / Saturn / Hygeia are in a large, slow moving Thor’s Hammer emphasizing the instability of this period. [Graphic omitted.]

Finally, a number of BiQuintiles indicate that some creativity can come into play if a departure must be achieved:

Sun/Hygeia, Pallas/Uranus, Astrea / Jupiter, and Juno / Pluto emphasize the availability of creative solutions.  This video may be helpful to some people:

The Diamond of Thanksgiving Day 2014

Thanksgiving Day of 2014 is marked by a diamond pattern that lasts most of the day.  Here is the simplified chart:

Diamond of 2014-11-27 Thanksgiving Day

[Click to Enlarge]

We think this is a mostly benevolent pattern.  With Hygeia prominent and retrograde, health and healthcare issues will be at center stage.  This Thanksgiving many will be thinking about avoiding overeating and the perils to health that can bring.  Ceres and Venus (12 and 13 Sagittarius, respectively) will also emphasize this same theme.  The involvement of the nodes here tell us that some people will overdo it, and this may prompt a “wakeup call” for some.

Here is the same chart, but with an aspect grid and legends (Solar Fire “Beginners” chart):

Diamond of 2014-11-27 Thanksgiving Day (Beginners)

[Click to Enlarge]

A number of other interesting aspects are in play.  Venus (Sadge) is still square Chiron (Pisces) emphasizing healing issues further.  These may be emotional and familial rather than physical.  Sun has recently (the day before) completed a square to Neptune, which also emphasizes healing and mercy in the high form but can involve deception or drugs / alcohol in the low form.  Astraea is near a sign change (moving from Pisces to Aries) suggesting that some overdue justice may emerge in the days following Thanksgiving.

Here is the video of the pattern:

Here are some other commentaries on Thanksgiving, 2014:

New Moon November 2014

Here is the New Moon chart for November 2014.  At 0 degrees Sagittarius, this NM makes a statement (and it precedes the even stronger statement by the Capricorn NM at the Winter’s Solstice this year).  Here is the basic chart:

New Moon 2014-11-22 (Beginner)

[Click to Enlarge]

We will leave the discussion of the significance of the NM at 0 degrees Sadge to others and focus on the patterns of aspects instead.

First, if one includes the asteroid Hygeia (health, healing, and healthcare) and the North Node (not a planet but an indicator of “karma” or “work to be done”), the continuing Uranus/Pluto square forms a grand cross (as discussed in an earlier post).  We will not duplicate that post here but instead note that a great deal of “tension” to “get things done” will be felt at this time by many.  Key issues will include unexpected events (Uranus) or hopefully insights regarding healing (Hygeia) and drugs or medications (Pluto, sometimes) and possibly some work that needs to be done involving the relationships between certain people.  (Who?  Only you, dear reader, can answer that based on your situation!)

Here is the same chart, but reduced to emphasize the grand cross in play:

New Moon 2014-11-22 (Beginner, Grand Cross)

[Click to Enlarge]

Also mentioned previously are the grand trines in play (again, using asteroids), though now they are greatly reduced from when the Moon was in Cancer.  Opportunities are still available, but the window is not as strong as earlier.

Tying these two sets of patterns together, we have two “almost” kites:

New Moon 2014-11-22 (Kite, Almost, 1)

[Click to Enlarge]New Moon 2014-11-22 (Kite, Almost, 2)

[Click to Enlarge]

For someone “willing to do the work,” the payoff can be significant!

We also see the Thor’s Hammer (God’s Fist) pattern.  Actually, we see TWO of them, which we call a “Thor’s Hammer Key.”  (We note that all of these use asteroids.  Neither is composed entirely of major planets.)

Some will feel urgency to take action, and this may be rash action that might include violence.  Some things might go “boom.”

Looking for a “more intuitive” and “less technical” approach?  Try this video:

Once you have watched that video, re-read our analysis and see if it makes more sense!

If nothing else makes sense, then try this: TEST the “News Year’s Resolutions” you have planned for 2015 to see WHAT WORKS starting with this New Moon.  Avoid that same old cycle of unrealistic high hopes on January 1st followed by quitting on the third Monday in January (aka “Blue Monday”).  This is your chance to do something different this year!

And if you are wanting to QUIT something (e.g. smoking), you will want to start “quitting” during the preceding period when the Moon is in Scorpio, especially on the evening of November 21st.  (Dark of the Moon.)

If you are quitting smoking (or anything similar), go park yourself somewhere SAFE and AWAY from your usual environment for (a minimum of) three days (until the Moon is in Capricorn or beyond).  (Instructions only applicable to NM of November 22nd; other NM’s will have different approaches.  If you are trying to stop drugs or alcohol then you may need a medical detox.  Don’t do anything dangerous!)

Moon in Cancer in November of 2014: T-Squares and Grand Trines

November 9, 2014 at 11:45 am | Posted in 2014, Astrology, Patterns | 2 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

The Moon in Cancer in November of 2014 creates a series of interesting (and contradictory!) patterns.  On one hand, Moon will join with Uranus and Pluto (in the well known and often discussed Uranus/Pluto square pattern) to form a T-Square.  On the other hand, the Moon will join with Mars and Neptune to form a Grand Trine (Grand Water Trine).  The first causes conflict and energizes people to “take action” while the second tends to be gentler and more relaxed (and sometimes an opportunity to make a quite a bit of money).

We we examine the T-Square:

November 10th T-Squares


[Click to Enlarge]

Moments of greatest tension occur when (1) Moon opposes Pluto, (2) Moon squares Uranus, and (3) Moon conjoins Hygeia (an asteroid governing health and health issues).  If one counts the node (a point and not an actual body), then one might argue this is an (ongoing) grand cross.

Ordinarily, we would describe this period as being either “energetic” or “challenging” depending on how you use (or flow through) the energy.  But a grand trine (a grand water trine) is in play as well!  This pattern actually begins on November 9th (as we are writing the second part of this entry) and concludes later on the 10th.

Grand Water Trine 2014-10-09

Someone, maybe several someones, will see an incredibly opportunity during this period and convert it into some serious money.  We note, also, that if one chooses to include Vesta, that a Grand Fire Trine is ALSO operative with Uranus in Aries, Jupiter in Leo, and Vesta in Sagittarius.  (Wow!)  This video shows how STRONG these relationships are:

If you have been looking for a window to “get things done,” then this window of time is it!  While most signs benefit during this period, Scorpios benefit most.

Double Thor’s Hammer Period of 2014 November 14

As we have mentioned elsewhere, some events in astrology simply are not well described as a “point.”  Here we have a Double Thor’s Hammer (we call it a “Double Thor’s Hammer Key”) on the evening (in Plano) of November 14th:

As an aside, here is a chart of the moment that we uploaded that video (the first such upload on this blog).  (We note that Moon is conjunct Algol, and Mars/Pluto are on the Ascendant!  NOT done intentionally, and a bit scary!)

Full Moon November 2014

Here is the basic chart for the Full Moon of November 2014:

Full Moon November 2014 (Beginners)

[Click to Enlarge]

We see some indication that we may be entering a period of austerity (or a cold winter?) as Venus is between the Sun and Saturn (all in Scorpio) with Mars applying to conjoin Saturn (both in Capricorn).  Saturn and Pluto continue in mutual reception, as has been true since 2012.  Will be interesting to see what the financial markets do.  We note that Mars and Vesta are semi-octile, and that might be the most important aspect during this full moon.  (More discussion on this below after the Modulus Sort Strips.)  We also note a Huber triangle involving Sun / Moon / Chiron (as shown in the next version of the chart).

Full Moon November 2014 (Huber)

[Click to Enlarge]

Similarly important, Astraea (at 29 Pisces) is semi-square the Moon and Sesquisquare the Sun (in a pattern we have not seen named before but similar to a T-Square or arguably the Huber triangle).  (This is all about some injustice that has NOT been resolved!)

Here is an horary version of that same chart data:

Full Moon November 2014 (Horary)

[Click to Enlarge]

One thing that benefits this full moon is that none of the planets are peregrine.  The arabic parts generally look favorable as well.

Here is last year’s November Scorpio / Taurus full moon.

Here are the midpoint trees for those interested in midpoints:

Full Moon November 2014 (Midpoint Trees)

[Click to Enlarge]

We see a very busy group of midpoint trees.  Here is the Modulus Sort strips, another way to identify relationships that may not otherwise be entirely obvious:

Full Moon November 2014 (Modulus Sort Strips)


[Click to Enlarge]

Notice that the last strip, the 22.5 strip, shows Vesta/Mars next to each other.  This means that they are “semi-octile” with is a 16th Harmonic aspect.  But, what does that mean?  Discussions abound, and opinions vary.

My interpretation is that the semi-octile is a kind of “irritation,” a bit like the persistent annoyance of a pebble in the shoe that ultimately must be addressed.

With Vesta/Mars the two bodies joined by semi-octile, we suspect some people may be either quite irritable or outright enraged (possibly by some event near the FM).  We will see some of this after the elections in the U.S., but they not a cause of the problem (the elections reflect other underlying problems).  Any polarization that occurred with the Rosettas of October will more clearly emerge at this time.  Remember, also, that on a much large scale we are choosing (collectively and individually) one of two major forks in the road (i.e. The Grand Yod).

Full Moon November 2014 (Modulus Sort Strips Mars Vesta) 2

[Click to Enlarge]

We have indicated Mars/ Vesta in the 22.5 strip in this last graphic using deep red.  (The 22.5 strip is the last in the series.)  Two strips above it, the fourth in the series, is the 45 degree strip.  Here, at the end, we see Sun / Moon / Astraea as noted using light blue.  As mentioned before, this is about an injustice that is unresolved.  Justice must be had here.  Given the upcoming Thor’s Hammer days circa November 14/15, we shudder to think of what may happen if whatever coverup(s) have been going on are not exposed in a peaceful manner.

We also identify four (4) themes that emerge from four (4) Triseptiles during this period.  (“Triseptiles” are higher order aspects that are difficult to interpret; those who do attempt to interpret them claim that they are “karmic” in nature.)

1.  Jupiter BISeptile Ceres (and Ceres square Neptune): This is a large, higher order set of issues involving education and law (Jupiter), the food supply (Ceres), and healthcare & drugs (Neptune).  Jupiter in Leo indicates that we can expect dramatic changes, Ceres in Sadge strengthens Jupiter’s role, and Neptune introduces a sense of urgency and annoyance as the solutions dissolve into failures (and lessons for better solutions in the future).

The full moon itself (Moon opposes Sun) is part of a Huber triangle involving Chiron (the “wounded healer,” another indicator of education and healthcare issues).  This Sun / Moon / Chiron triangle will almost certainly activate the Jupiter / Ceres / Neptune pattern on a mundane level.  (Maybe part of the key to dealing with the Ebola problem will involve education of healthcare workers?)

2.  Juno BiSeptile Saturn: Issues and trust and betrayal collide with policies that may be too “bare bones” to protect those that should be protected.  Change becomes necessary.

3.  Pallas TriSeptile Uranus: in the low form, surprise attacks.  In the high form, insights that result in breakthroughs, particularly technological breakthroughs.  Given the nature of Pallas, some of these may be military in nature and the information not available to the public.

4.  Vesta BiSeptile Astraea: Similar in many ways to #3.  A push to address injustices boils to the surface.  The Vesta / Mars semi-octile discussed earlier ties into this and is the “pebble in the shoe” that heightens the pressure to obtain justice and redress the wrongs.

Here is the same full moon chart, but displaying specifically the TriSeptiles:

We note that the U.S. map is unusually busy.  The area where Montana and South Dakota meet is highly activated.  (Will we see a surprise winter storm or other unusual weather there?)
