Sun Opposite Chiron 2015-09-12

On this date Sun opposes Chiron.  This would be a great day to consider taking a day off.  But, if you cannot do that, then chances are good that you may be dealing with health and healing issues, or issues involving education and teaching.  Here is the chart, filtered for Chiron aspects:

Essentially, this aspect occurs in the “Dark of the Moon,” a good time to clean things out and reflect on what has happened in the past with an eye for your goals in the future.  The New Moon of September 13th (a Solar Eclipse) follows the next day, and “things change.”

Sun Trine Pluto 2015-09-05

Let’s be clear, this is a good day for “taking care of business.”  Specifically we mean paying bills, especially paying off debts, clearing tax matters, and eliminating anything similar in your life (at least for this year if not permanently).

Here is the chart:

If you really do have all your bill paying, banking, and tax matters caught up, then consider revising your will, advanced directives, and similar documents.  If all such matters are caught up, then be happy that you are in a strong position and use this as a comfortable day to research sophisticated topics that you might not otherwise read about.

Sun Quincunx Neptune 2015-09-30

We present the chart for Sun Quincunx Neptune, which perfects September 30th of 2015:

2015-09-30 Sun Quincunx Neptune[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note this is a bit of a “fly in the ointment” that rains on the parade of Mercury (r) Conjunct Sun on this date.  However you choose the energy of this day, a “reality check” is in order.

Sun Opposite Neptune 2015-08-31

This is an annual event, and it would be best spent as a day off.  In this case, it follows on the heels on a Full Moon.  (If you have not read the analysis of that FM, please do so now.  It is relevant to what is going on with this particular Sun/Neptune aspect.)

The Moon is waning now, and if your project from last week was mis-spent time and energy, today is the day to cut your losses, sell the spare parts at a garage sale, and move on to regroup and plan to do something different.  (But, if you are a creative, the possibility exists that you MIGHT get your best ideas today.  Again, work from home if possible.)

Here is the chart:

2015-08-31 Sun Opposite Neptune[Click to Enlarge]

This is a good time to clean house.  Writing poetry or songs could be a useful activity on this date, as could be photography or video.

Sun Sesquiquadrate Uranus 2015-08-28 (Hard Rectangle and More)

Sun Sesquiquadrate Uranus perfects Friday, August 28, 2015.  This is a very GOOD energy for “getting things done” (particularly if you “bit off more than you could chew when you took on that new project Wednesday with Sun Conjunct Jupiter), but it can be very bad if you act impulsively and do something rash and stupid because your temper overcame your better sense.  (Lawyers and boxers might do well under this pattern, but most everyone else tends to suffer.)

We show the chart first filtered for the Sun Sesquiquadrate Uranus aspect (and shows upcoming Sun Opposite Neptune):

2015-08-28 Sun Sesquiquadrate Uranus[Click Image to Enlarge]

Here is the same chart, filtered for 5th harmonic aspects:

2015-08-28 Sun Sesquiquadrate Uranus (5th harmonic)[Click Image to Enlarge]

We see a triangular pattern (a quintile trine?) connecting Mercury (communication and transportation), Astraea (law and legal system), and Pallas (innovation, particularly military innovation).  This can be a day to make important breakthroughs in these areas.

A Hard Rectangle occurs this day, also, heightening the intensity of the day.

Sun Sextile Saturn 2015-09-23 (Mystic Rectangle and more)

Sun sextile Saturn is an excellent day for “getting things done.”  But, this is nothing short of an amazing day.  (We have great expectations for children born on this day.)  Why is it amazing?

(1) A Mystic Rectangle occurs.  These are both rare and incredibly fortuitous.

(2) An amazing 5th harmonic pattern occurs that greatly resembles a Star of David pattern

Here is this chart for the perfection of Sun Sextile Saturn, filtered for the Mystic Rectangle:

And here is the same chart filtered for the 5th order harmonics (quintiles and biquintiles):

2015-09-23 Sun Sextile Saturn (5th Order Harmonics)[Click Image to Enlarge]

Since, apparently, no name exists for this pattern, we will call it a “Quintile Star of David.”  (This is likely not a “perfect” version of the “Quintile Star of David” since that would require Mars Opposite Neptune in this case.)

These rather amazing patterns form on the same day as the Sun conjoins the North Node, forming a particularly powerful kite pattern.

Sun Conjunct Jupiter 2015-08-26

This happens once a year, every year.  It is USUALLY a window of good fortune, and that is what we expect on this date.  However, a yod occurs earlier in the day, and your ability to take advantage of this may depend on the decision you made earlier, before this aspect perfects.  Furthermore, Jupiter is in “detriment”  in Virgo and not able to perform as strongly as usual.

We also note the presence of substantial 5th order harmonics (quintiles and biquintiles), and we should the chart filtered for those:

2015-08-26 Sun Conjunct Jupiter (5th order harmonics)[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that the pattern we are describing has Mercury (communications and transportation) at the center (or apex) with Astraea (law and the legal system) on one side (or leg) and Pallas (innovation, particularly military innovation) on the other side (or leg).   Will be interesting to see what enters the news at this time.  Don’t be surprised to see that it involves a controversial technology that, once again, may be a further threat to our collective privacy.

On a personal level, this can be a very good time to launch a new project, particularly if you can finish it before the Full Moon perfects (August 29th) or, failing that, before the next New Moon (the Solar Eclipse of September 13th).

Mercury (R) Conjunct Sun 2015-09-30

Mercury (R) Conjunct Sun 2015-09-30

Retrograde Mercury conjoins the Sun slightly past 0930 CDT (please adjust for your time zone).  This short window, from about 900 CDT to about 1000 CDT, is a time when an old project can be resurrected with brilliant results.  Here is the chart, filtered for the Kite present at this time:

2015-09-30 Mercury (R) Conjunct Sun (Kite)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Actually, when we filter for 5th harmonic aspects, we find a 5th harmonic aspect similar to a Yod that gives you a choice between (a) resurrecting the old project (Sun/Mercury on one leg) or (b) scrapping it and replacing it with a new brilliant solution (Pallas, innovation, on the other leg).  Here is the chart, filtered for 5th harmonic aspects:

2015-09-30 Mercury (R) Conjunct Sun (5th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Do realize that, whichever approach you choose, you may need to make adjustments after Mercury turns direct.  And a bit of a “fly in the ointment” exists in the form of Sun Quincunx Neptune perfecting on this date.  A reality check is in order, and you still might overlook critical details in the implementation of the ideas you generate on this date.

Lunar Eclipse of 2015-09-27 (Blood Moon 4 of 4)

Lunar Eclipse of 2015-09-27 (Blood Moon 4 of 4)

While the religious fervor is nearing fever pitch, this lunar eclipse (full moon) looks relatively uninteresting.  However, it IS an eclipse, and those are always strong punctuation marks to astrologers.  Also: we note that this occurs 9/28 in UK/EU and that part of the world.

We independently arrive at essentially the same conclusions, and completely agree with the analysis done by, Armstrong Economics: this Blood Moon is not “The End of the World as We Know It” but it does likely signal a major “shift in trend.”

As far as regular patterns go, only an ongoing kite pattern colors this particular eclipse:

2015-09-27 Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon, Blood Moon 4 of 4, Kite)[Click Image to Enlarge]

However, the chart does contain a fair amount of 5th harmonic activity (some of it interesting) and 7th harmonic activity .  We present the chart filtered for 5th harmonic aspects (quintiles and biquintiles) first, noting a pattern similar to a yod (but composed of biquintiles instead of quincunxes):

2015-09-27 Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon, Blood Moon 4 of 4, 5th Harmonic)[Click Image to Enlarge]

Mars (physical energy, sometimes war and violence) is connected to biquintiles to Ceres (feast/famine) and Vesta (tradition, but sometimes weird sex).  Ceres and Vesta are connected by a quintile.  All of this is about insights and novel ideas (think Mozart) about combining these three areas, and perhaps a choice between the Ceres issues (feast / famine) and Vesta issues (traditions and rituals), similar to a Yod.

A similar situation exists with 7th Harmonic aspects (“karma”):

2015-09-27 Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon, Blood Moon 4 of 4, 7th Harmonic)[Click Image to Enlarge]

Here we have Venus (love, beauty, money) at the apex, and Chiron (healing and teaching) on one leg and Ceres on the other.  Resolving “karma” involving these three is the core issue here.

So, if we see any issues from this eclipse, we suspect that they will deal with decisions that involve these higher order aspects.  A decision appears to be present: whether to stick with tradition (Vesta, doing things the way we have always done them) or taking a risk (Ceres, feast or famine).  I note that some people will end a relationship at this time (Ceres, the risk of feast or famine) while others will continue with what they know despite some dissatisfaction (Vesta, sticking with what we know).

Some have said that the unrest in Syria (arguably a civil war) IS central to the message for all of us at this time.  Chances are good that we will only be able to see that more fully in hindsight.  (Do note the 7th harmonic (karma) pattern similar to a Yod that appears to offer us a decision.)  We have some other observations about this eclipse posted on our sibling site Mystic Rectangles.

Jupiter Opposite Neptune 2015-09-17 (Kites and a Yod)

Jupiter Opposite Neptune 2015-09-17 (Kites and a Yod)

First, we present links to alternative perspectives on this event:

Next, we note that this occurs a few days after a Solar Eclipse, on the day of a Mercury Retrograde Station, as Juno enters Libra, and near a Quintile Kite.  (See, also: September 17th 2015 and list of Quintile Kites for 2015.)

And, this happens in the early morning hours for the Western Hemisphere, so early that the perfection almost occurs on September 16th.

We note that two overlapping Kites occur with this powerful outer planet aspect (see, also: Long Term Forecasts for links to lists of Outer Planet Aspects).

We present that version of the chart:

2015-09-17 Jupiter Opposite Neptune (Kites)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

One important message is that the perfection of Mercury Opposite Uranus, which occurs after the Mercury Retrograde period, will be particularly important in developing the ideas and opportunities developed at this time.  Pallas (innovation, particularly military innovation) and Venus (love, beauty, and money) are also involved in this kite and strongly color the flavor of the opportunity.

Another Kite, weaker, involves the Nodes (Karma), Saturn (hard work, “the basics,” tests, trials, and tribulations) and Astraea (law and the legal system).  It all sounds messy and difficult as far as opportunities go unless you are a lawyer or function in some similar capacity.

A yod is also present, and we filter the chart to illustrate that pattern:

2015-08-17 Jupiter Opposite Neptune (Yod)[Click Image to Enlarge]

Sadly, the choice is not a very pleasant one.  It is between Jupiter, normally a beneficial planet but now in “detriment” (according to the traditionalists) in Virgo and the Moon, also typically beneficial, but in the sign of Scorpio, or “fall” (according to traditionalists).  For many people, this is a tough choice: a restricted form of growth that requires hard work or powerful but subtle power struggles.  You will go down one path or the other, but you do have the opportunity to choose which one if you wish (instead of having the choice made for you).

While we do see some difficulties associated with this aspect, what we are really being told is that some amazing opportunities are present, but to keep from being cheated or fooled we must stay grounded and proceed carefully, checking (and sometimes double and triple checking) each fine detail, overlooking nothing.  Chances are good you WILL overlook something, and you will find those omissions and errors during the upcoming Mercury Retrograde period.  AFTER that period is over, you will receive powerful insights with the perfection of Mercury opposite Uranus and will be able to move forward in ways that test the limits of your imagination.

If you are reading this page in hindsight (after the perfection), you may also want to read about Mars opposite Neptune on October 6th of this year, which occurs a few days before the Mercury Direct Station.
