We normally think of a Virgo moon as being relatively benevolent.  But, this day is filled with the Quincunx (aka Inconjunct), and misunderstandings abound.  January of 2015 is rich in patterns, and in this post we are singling out two for analysis.

First, we note that the day is characterized by a Hele (this chart is set at a time chosen by Solar Fire 8 for the beginning on the Hele, but the Hele itself covers roughly a 24 hour period, so the ascendant is not particularly meaningful here):

As we have discussed before, the Hele appears to be a polarizing pattern, encouraging people to choose one of two sides.  (e.g. “police” v. “minorities”)  In the case of this Hele, one side is relatively mainstream or traditional or “the way things have always been.”  This is the Sun/Moon trine (with Vesta in the mix).  The other side is a combination of trust v. distrust (Juno) and surprises (Uranus) with, paradoxically, a tendency to keep things the way they always have been (South Node).  That is, the alternate leg involves issues of trust v. mistrust along with surprises (and possibly innovations).

While the Moon / Juno (internal self and trust issues) side of this Hele is in harmony, the Sun (outer self and authority figures) / Uranus (surprises, explosions, revolutions, insights) is not in harmony.

A hele, by itself, does not necessarily spark action.  But this day also contains a focused yod.  We note that, in addition to requiring a decision and likely action, the focused yod also likely contains possible answers to the questions posed by the Hele:

This focused yod contains Chiron / Juno as one leg and Chiron / North Node as the other.  The choice is between continuing to be caught in issues of trust and distrust, probably mired in them, or doing the hard work necessary to move forward.  With Juno in Leo, we can tell that a great deal of ego is involved and “letting go” just is not going to come very easily.  And the North Node is in Libra and focuses on relationship issues and what some call “give and take.”  The moon provides a possible anwser as it has earlier opposed Chiron and offered answers in the form of work and play (Virgo = work, Pisces = Play) combined with a need to become highly organized in order to move forward necessary healing.

We will close this post by saying that today signifies the work to be done but does not show that the problems are solved.  Today’s messages will be ones of what needs to be done, and what can be done, instead of any final resolution.

Pay attention to what signs and ideas come your way.

One last thing: I check the search engine terms for this site.  One of you ran a search for “astraea paris october eclipse.”  I went back and checked my post on that eclipse, the most recent solar eclipse, and indeed an astraea line is dead center on Paris at the time of that eclipse.  (Thanks to whoever ran the search.)

Again: Pay attention to what signs and ideas come your way.

  1. oh weird. I’m trying to rebuild my life after years of devastation and applied for a LLC to restart my biz. My moon is at 12 Aries and Suns is 13 Aries and Uranus has been super glued to for years. I did the chart for the time that I applied and Uranus is at the biz Midheaven. Lilith is conjunct that Virgo moon.

    • Well, as you already know, expect “surprises.” That said, the opportunity here is to make “light bulb” changes. That is, we see a situation, and maybe a “surprise,” and we look for “the” opportunity (better yet: “opportunities”) to be had from this situation. You are living in quite Promethean times, and you have the opportunity to provide leadership (Aries) as these insights arrive. Does that help?

      If you want, you can provide birth data, and I can do a chart (publicly, however) with your personal identity removed. (I am overdue to do several of these.)

      • You may be in the wrong place. Philly has some long term issues. (See, also: http://muttermuseum.org/exhibitions/the-soap-lady/) I have also taken the liberty of anonymizing your entry, something most people want when they give me birth information. I cannot promise a chart any time soon (maybe today, maybe in a few years) since I still have a backlog on personal charts.
