2020-04-18 and 2020-04-19 Semisquares; Moon Conjunct Neptune; Sun moves into Taurus; Kite and Square Key continue

Summary

The Piscean Moon dampens the frustrations of the moment reminding us to take time off.  We do feel some urgency regarding certain matters, and tending to them is important, but with the Sun void until it moves into Taurus we may not be able to accomplish all of the things we desire.

The Kite and Square Key continue from yesterday, April 17th.  This means we do have opportunities and, paradoxically, should seize certain ones.  Missteps become lessons.  Learn the lesson and do something different next time if that is possible.

Somewhere in here, if it is possible, have a little fun this weekend.

We include maps in this post.

2020-04-17 Moon into Pisces; Mercury opposite Juno; Kite; Square Key

April 17, 2020 at 12:26 pm | Posted in Astrology | Comments Off on 2020-04-17 Moon into Pisces; Mercury opposite Juno; Kite; Square Key

Summary

Today is mostly a quiet day for most people with important opportunities that are easily missed.  This forecast is being written during the Moon v/c in Aquarius after Moon perfects a conjunction to Ceres (food and prosperity, and arguably supply chains).  The opportunity involves conversations and short trips revolving about issues of trust.  with Chiron four (4) degrees away from Mercury, some of these conversations may be “painful” but the healing that results can be cathartic.  (India and Pakistan: are you listening to this?  Important conversations about issues of trust!)

Irregular Oracle

2020-04-17 Moon into Pisces; Mercury opposite Juno; Kite; Square Key

Key aspects and patterns for Friday April 17, 2020

  • After a void in Aquarius, Moon moves into Pisces at 1329 CDT (1:29 PM Central Time)
  • Mercury (Aries) opposes Juno (Libra)
  • A kite (opportunity, or possibly opportunities) is present: Juno (Libra) is part of a grand air trine including (a) Vesta at 10 Gemini (along with Venus at 11, Hygeia at 12) and (b) Mars at 12 Aquarius; Mercury opposing Vesta completes the kite
  • A “Square Key” (two interlaced Huber Learning Triangles that share a common quincunx)
  • Sun perfects a square to Pallas Athena (the armored warrior goddess), the third of a series of three square the Sun (Aries) makes to planets (and an asteroid) in Capricorn (Pluto, Jupiter, and Pallas Athena).  Early next week the Sun (in Taurus) will make one of its annual squares to Saturn (now in…

2016-03-08 Solar Eclipse (Square Key + Yod + Thor’s Hammer)

2016-03-08 Solar Eclipse  (Square Key + Yod + Thor’s Hammer)

This eclipse is the first of five this year!  The next Solar Eclipse is September 1, 2016, and we have lunar eclipses March 23, 2016, August 18, 2016, and September 16, 2016.

And, this eclipse has a rather interesting quality (that I had initially missed): it starts on March 9th and ends on March 8th!  Do not believe me?  Read this article.  Again, because it starts in one time zone on one side of the International Date Zone, and it moves “backwards” across the International Date Zone to another time zone, it starts on March 9th and ends on March 8th.  (I do not think we get many of these.)

Solar Eclipse 2016-03-08

First we look at this eclipse from the standpoint of the Square Key:

2016-03-08 New Moon (Square Key + Yod + TH)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Will not repeat in detail the deep dive that other commentators have done regarding Sun/Moon here being close to Chiron (health, education, and the “wounded healer”) on one side and Ceres (“prosperity” in general, and food, diet and nutrition in particular).  But do keep in mind that many of us are facing a blend of these critical issues at this time.  In fact, this is a “5 point Stellium” in Pisces.

What we will note is that, is that a Square Key pattern is present that ties together Uranus, Pluto, Saturn, and the North Node.  Square keys are really interlaced Huber “Learning Triangles,” and this means we are facing important lessons regarding North Node (“Karma,” and in this case dealing with finances or health or both; this is “reaping what you have sown” in these areas.)  How is your health?  Are you doing what it takes to maintain or improve it?  If so, great!  If not, the time is at hand for a change.  Exactly the same is true regarding finances.  Adding Saturn into the mix means that you need to change “or else.”  The “or else” is strong here.

Also in the mix is Pluto in Capricorn (birth, death, rebirth, police, intelligence agencies and taxes all applied primarily to financial areas (or maybe your knees! Or skeletal system).  And Uranus (surprises; unforeseen circumstances along with insights, sometimes genius level insights, and electronics and electricity) is in the mix, too.

As we always say: only you can truly interpret this mix.  (But we hope the previous identifications of issues is helpful.)

Tempers are still fragile from Mercury square Mars over the weekend, and Mercury semisquare both Uranus and Pluto yesterday.  By itself, these would be “enough” to put many if not most people “on edge.”  But, a Thor’s Hammer pattern is present also.  We now present the chart for perfection of the Solar Eclipse, filtered for the Thor’s Hammer:

Solar Eclipse 2016-03-08 (Thor's Hammer)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

What is at stake here?  Vesta, Saturn, and Jupiter are involved.  They tell us the issues that are likely to make someone’s “blood boil” today and lead them to take action.  We note that Jupiter is square Saturn.  Jupiter is in a place of weakness, and things are not so good for Saturn either.  Jupiter (law, legal, courts, higher education, long distance travel, and ambassadors) is addressing Virgo issues (health, healthcare professionals, bookkeeping and accounting, and focusing on “things” being “orderly”).  Frankly, Jupiter is more about looking at the “big picture” and detests focusing on “things” being “orderly.”

Saturn is even worse off.  Saturn (tests, trials, tribulations, sticking to the “basics,” and sometimes the Bear Market side of financial markets but also financial markets in general) is in Sagittarius (all the same issues as Jupiter).  In fact, Jupiter RULES Sagittarius which makes life very bad for Saturn, indeed, at this time.

Sesquiquadrate to BOTH Jupiter and Saturn is Vesta, an asteroid that is all about “doing things the way we have always done them.”  While traditions often serve us, Vesta will continue them far past the point of benefit.  It is in conflict with BOTH Jupiter and Saturn.  Do not be surprised if we have some kind of mass casualty incident at a place that involves some kind of bureaucracy.  (Post workers? School shootings? What is next?)  Some VERY important lawsuits may be filed today.

Again, only you can interpret how this applies to your situation.

A Hele is present, and we will refrain from commentary except to say you should pay attention to who you are talking to today.  The possibility exists that you may identify someone, maybe several someones, who can become an important ally.  Uranus, Pluto, Astraea (law and legal systems), and the North Node combine to form this pattern.  Here is the same chart,  but filtered for the Hele:

Solar Eclipse 2016-03-08 (Hele)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Again, you will have to interpret this pattern to fit your situation.  Finally, we present this chart filtered for a Yod, sometimes called “God’s Finger,” and the pattern that indicates an important decision is at hand:

Solar Eclipse 2016-03-08 (Yod)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Jupiter (we have discussed this earlier) is at the apex of the Yod.  The debilitated Jupiter that must deal with healthcare and minute details instead of large policy issues looks to a decision.  On one hand is Pallas, a source of very bright ideas that have a bit of a warrior quality to them.  On the other hand is Uranus, the source of the Olympic Torch and bringer of light to all.  Uranus is the true innovator, more so than Pallas who is very good.  But Uranian ideas seem very strange to those who cannot yet quite see the future, and supporters of Vesta (“doing things the waywe have always done them”) will likely go beserk today with a Uranian path.  You will have to decide.  Are you willing to battle the traditionalists who will offer a “good” (but “lesser”) idea, or are you willing to take a risk on an unconventional “best” idea?

Other comments on this Solar Eclipse:

Sun Conjunct Neptune 2016-02-28 (Square Key + Hele)

Sun Conjunct Neptune 2016-02-28 (Square Key + Hele)

The aspect is great for poets and photographers, but it is not so good for signing contracts or forming alliances.  Nevertheless, a Hele is present, indicating that you can form a long term alliance at this time.  But, the Square Key is telling us that (whether or not you form the alliance) you will learn “lessons.”  Form the alliance, and you will learn “lessons” (aka work through Karma).  Refuse to form the alliance, and you will pay a price for that, also.  Maybe it is just better to take pictures and write poetry today.

Here is the chart for perfection of the aspect, filtered for the Square Key:

Full Moon 2016-02-22 Square Key, Hele, Thor’s Hammer, and more

Full Moon 2016-02-22 Square Key, Hele, Thor’s Hammer, and more

This is a complex Full Moon, and it will be more of a turning point for some people than others.  A Hele is present (one that involves Uranus / Pluto, of the famous series of squares involving those planets since 2012).  We will see a solidification of alliances that moves beyond anything we have seen before.  No doubt this will particularly play out in the political area (especially Presidential politics), but we will see it elsewhere as well.

The Square Key, an interlaced pair of Huber Learning Triangles, brings us a set of important “lessons” related to the decisions today.  A Yod, with Vesta at the apex, forces us to between Mars (taking action, quickly and decisively) and the North Node (a point rather than the planet, but an important one involving “karma” (Rahu/Ketu in the Vedic world) and struggling to “work through” an important issue).  We also have a Thor’s Hammer (involving the Moon (of the FM) and the Uranus/Pluto pair mentioned earlier.  This gives much “energy” but can lead to anger, tempers flaring, and sometimes even violence.

We have four patterns in play: (1) a Hele; (2) a Square Key; (3) a Yod; and (4) a Thor’s Hammer.  This is a particularly busy Full Moon, and 2016 has a number of these.

We present the Full Moon chart, perfecting in Plano TX, filtered for the Hele:

As noted elsewhere, this day is also active regarding Outer Planets (Mars out).  Some of the activity includes Hygeia, Juno, Jupiter, and Neptune.  Here is a link to the chart for the similar 2014 Full Moon and the similar 2015 Full Moon.

For those interested in other interpretations:

For those who wish to look back (retrospective) and look forward (prospective) at “similar” Full Moons (Moon in Virgo / Sun in Pisces), here is the list of the dates and times of perfection of similar FM’s from 2010 to 2050:

Square Key 2015-11-28

Square Key 2015-11-28

This particular Saturday has a bit of annoyances in the morning followed by the insights from a Venus / Chiron Biquintile in the evening.  (Afternoon / late night for EU / UK.)  A Square Key formation begins about 8 AM CST (9a EST / 6a PST) and lasts until about 2 PM CST (3p EST / Noon PST).  We present the chart at or near (depending on your orbs) the beginning of the formation:

2015-11-28 Square Key

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Like the earlier aspects (Venus semi-square Saturn and sesquiquadrate Neptune earlier in the morning), this pattern tends to be a bit annoying.  And ALSO like the Venus / Chiron BiQuintile this evening, this pattern tends to bring insights (aka “lessons”).  Expect the unexpected, and learn what you can.  A quiet evening at home might be better than a major party tonight.

Square Keys of August 2015

We present these together even thought the August 31st Square Key occurs after the Full Moon of August 29th (and therefore may represent a different set of “lessons”).  (We say “lessons” because, as we have said before, Square Keys are really interlaced Huber Learning Triangles.)

We present them in reverse order, starting with the Square Key of August 31st:

2015-08-31 Square Key

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This Square Key also requires use of the Node, specifically the South Node.  It involves a lesson that results from “taking the easy way out” or, alternatively “doing things the way we have always done them.”  The crowed that tends to say “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” will feel this lesson extra strongly.  They may even be so foolish as to say, after experiencing the lesson, “it ain’t broke.”  But, it is.

Chances are good that the lessons of August 31st will involve police or intelligence agencies (or death or taxes, Pluto) along with innovations, particularly military innovations (Pallas).  With the school year starting, this could easily involve police, particularly undercover police operations, in educational settings.

Next, we present the Square Key of August 24th:

2015-08-24 Square Key

Since this Square Key (SK) also involves the South Node, it may be setting the stage for the SK of August 31st  We note that it involves the Sun, Moon, and Saturn as well as the South Node.  The “lights” (Sun and Moon) tell is that this involves basic issues that affect everyone, and Saturn is about “hard work” and focusing on “the basics.”  Saturn can also be academics and testing in particularly.  Some say that Saturn and the South Node are different faces of the same thing (often “doing things the way we have always done them”).  Again, we think that this could be related to issues that specifically address the beginning of the school year.

Finally, we present the Square Key of August 23, the day the Sun touches Regulus:

2015-08-23 Square Key

Moon, Astraea, Chiron, and Uranus (Prometheus) are involved.  This is likely a different set of issues from the other two SK’s.  The key issues here involve sensitive personal issues (the Moon), law and the legal system (Astraea), health, healing, and teaching (Chiron), and surprises, insights, and innovations (Uranus).  This sets the stage for some people having critically important lessons (and insights) that will empower (Regulus) them to rebel (Uranus) later against those who argue for “doing things the way we have always done them.”

Outer Planet Square Key of Early 2016

July 16, 2015 at 2:03 am | Posted in Astrology, Long Term Analysis, Patterns, Predictions | 1 Comment
Tags: , , , , , ,

We present the chart for the “Outer Planet Square Key of Early 2016.”  This outer planet (generational planets) pattern will dominate and pervade all other events through its culmination and likely for a few months beyond.  Since a “Square Key” is really two interlocking Huber Learning Triangles, the message is clear: collectively, we will be learning some powerful lessons.

Here is the chart:

Outer Planet Square Key of early 2016

You know that really powerful, amazing “luck” that you had back in the Summer of 2015 with its amazing opportunities?  Well, sadly, it will have run out by now.  The “good luck” van will be out of gas, and now you will have to work to create any “luck” that you might have.  Hope you chose wisely back in 2015.

Square Key of Friday June 26, 2015

June 24, 2015 at 10:50 pm | Posted in 2015, Astrology, Patterns, Predictions | 3 Comments
Tags: , , , , ,

This Friday has a Square Key, effectively two interconnected Huber Learning Triangles.  While this would tend to bring Karmic “lessons,” an opportunity may be hidden in their midst.  After the hard lessons earlier this week, we need time to pause and consider what can be learned.

Here is the chart:

2015-06-26 Square Key

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Saturday also contains a Hele, indicating (again) that people will be polarizing about various issues.

Here is the chart:

2015-06-27 Hele

[Click Image to Enlarge]

With the Moon in Scorpio and Chiron retrograde (both part of the Hele), these may continue to be painful “lessons.”  Comparison: Hele and Square Key of February 7, 2015 and Hele of May 26, 2015.

Square Keys of April 21, 2015

We note a complex pattern of overlapping Square Keys that begin about 8 AM CDT and end about 2 PM CDT on April 21st.  Here is the basic pattern at the beginning: Square Key of April 21st

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Since this pattern lasts for about six hours, maps are not applicable here (with the possible exception of points when lunar aspects perfect).  (We will not present maps for this pattern.) A number of interesting patterns happen this day, including two overlapping Grand Trines which are part of overlapping Kites: Grand Trines Overlapping 2015-04-21

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that startlingly this pattern looks like a “Star of David” although it is not classified as a Star of David pattern by Solar Fire 8 (SF8). We find that a Yod is present also.  This makes this a day about decisions, and the decision is between a path that involves trust/mistrust on one hand (Juno) and another path that involves much (worthwhile) hard work on the other (the Node).  Neptune at the apex tells us that the decision may not be clear at all. Yod 2015-04-21

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Given the involvement of Neptune / Juno, this yod will be with us longer than a day. Some people will likely decide badly, and “something” may “go boom” during this period given the presence of multiple overlapping Thor’s Hammer aspects: Thors Hammer 2015-04-21

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Still, for those who can keep their head, the multiple overlapping Kites tell us this is a Day of Opportunity. Kites Overlapping 2015-04-21

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Finally, we identify the presence of a “Mystic Rectangle.”  While we are not sure what this relatively rare pattern means, we believe that it is related to “good luck” and unforeseen opportunities. Mystic Rectangle 2015-04-21

We suspect that this will be a “day to remember” for many people. We have been having problems with search engines no longer ranking us on new posts (or ranking us very lowly), so if you want your friends to be able to find and read this article then please email the link to them.

Let’s summarize this day:

1.  You will have at least one important decision to make

2.  To benefit from this day you have to avoid losing your temper and channel your response into productivity

3.  You will have at least one opportunity today, but you will probably have too many and will have to decide which one.

4.  Some people might have a danger of being lazy and procrastinating and missing their chance.  (The Window will close.)

5.  For some people, this will be a rare, possibly once in a lifetime opportunity.

Keep your eyes open, make a decision when the opportunity presents itself, and get everything done related to that opportunity TODAY that you can get done.  Don’t procrastinate!  (And don’t “lose your cool” to use the old hippie 60’s speak.)

Groundhog Day 2013: Square Key

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Groundhog Day of 2013 is marked by the appearance of a Square Key:

Square Key of Feb 2, 2013 1-25-2013 10-19-04 PM

[Click Image to Enlarge]

What does this mean?  The combination of squares and inconjuncts will leave people with a feeling that they “need to act.”  The squares will not let people sit still, but the inconjuncts (quincunxes) will leave people with a sense of dissatisfaction regarding whatever they do, or do not, accomplish.

Noteworthy, also, is the Thor’s Hammer (aka “God’s Fist”) that precedes this formation on February 1st.  Moon is at apex of the Thors Hammer while Jupiter and Chiron are on each leg.

Thors Hammer Feb 1 2013 1-26-2013 5-50-59 AM

The Thor’s Hammer may produce rash action (if not an explosion).  The Square Key will color the reactions which will likely be ineffective or misguided.

Mercury Square Mars 2016-03-04 (Double Yod Key + extra Yod + Kite + Hele)

As typically true with so many variants of this aspect, watch your words and watch your temper.  But, really, this one is about decisions.  A Double Yod Key is enough to tell us that more than one is in play, but a THIRD yod is present in addition to the DYK.  “Should I Stay or Should I go?”  You need to decide today.  Yods always leave us wondering “what if” we had taken the other path, but you must decide, and a failure to decide is a decision itself.  A kite is present, indicating at least one opportunity, and a Hele tells us that today is about forming long term alliances also.  People will like polarize about disputes today.

Here is the chart, filtered for the DYK:

Mercury Square Mars 2015-12-29 (Thor’s Hammer Key)

Mercury Square Mars is a notoriously dangerous aspect, the kind that makes the list containing Mars Square Pluto.  This one has interlaced Thor’s Hammer patterns, and we call that combination a “Thor’s Hammer Key.”  Watch out for dangerous people, places, and things, and do not be one yourself.

Conflicts today are almost certainly related to the decisions of Sunday and Monday, recently, and the events associated with the Full Moon of Christmas 2015 on Friday and the followup events of Saturday (Mars Semisquare Saturn).

Here is the chart, filtered for the Thor’s Hammer patterns:

2021 Aquarian New Moon : Double Thor’s Hammer Key + Multiple Rosetta

February 10, 2021 at 6:00 am | Posted in Astrology | 6 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Lunations vary. Much as “opinions vary” (immortal words uttered by the Philosopher “Dalton” in “Road House” (played by Patrick Swayze)), lunations vary. Some are, frankly, boring. Some are more interesting.

This one is more interesting.

First of all, for many events, this New Moon (NM, hereafter) is the “trigger” associated with upcoming Saturn Square Uranus. One of my teachers said it many times: often the day of a huge, arguably “cataclysmic” outer planet event is a dull day with little to nothing compelling happening (except for births or deaths that happen on that date). But, according to my old mentor, MANY times the immediately preceding (or following) lunation (NM or FM) is a “trigger,” setting in motion critical events.

I believe that is true here. The NM of Thorsday triggers much. Some of it scares me.

Six Major Considerations for this New Moon

Here is my list of “issues” with this NM:

  1. Thor’s Hammer Key : I have never seen a book describe this (at all!) and Solar Fire (as of version 9) does NOT have a built-in search for this (I would like to see it added). Similar to a “double yod key,” the Thor’s Hammer Key (or, if you prefer, “God’s Fist Key”) is a combination of two Thor’s Hammer patterns interlaced on one side. We have that in this chart, and (similar to Adam Lanza who had a Thor’s Hammer in his birth chart) the Thor’s Hammer can make “things” go “boom.” I will not say it happens every time, but the POTENTIAL is there! (Be careful! Avoid dangerous “things” (people, places, and things. Offer a kind word rather than an angry insult. Apologize. Watch “Unhinged” again! Here is a question : Is the character played by Russell Crowe really the villain? Are you sure? How do YOU act in those situations? Would you apologize? Do you hunt someone down if they don’t apologize to you? Or, are you a doormat? Do you feel your blood boil sometimes? Did you “just want an apology” when you were having “a really bad day”? Have you felt that lately?)
  2. Rosettas, multiple and interlaced. One side opposes the other. Oddly, both sides seem cooperative. But both sides have HUGE internal battles waged “behind closed doors.” Expect the impeachment trial of Donald Trump to prove to be “interesting.” (Let’s face it, regardless of what the outcome may be, dissatisfaction will be vented extensively, maybe by BOTH sides.)
  3. 7th Harmonic activity : Karmic (always) and (sometimes) scientific or technical breakthroughs. What appears to be a four planet pattern with a trapezoidal pattern is in play. Whether or not that is true depends on how tight you set your orbs, but (if you are willing to loosen your constraints) the pattern looks interesting.
  4. 5th Harmonic : The 5th Harmonic looks deadly boring UNTIL you realize that Jupiter forms a bi-quintile with Vesta, and Vesta was involved in the aforementioned 7th harmonic activity. Specifically, Sun/Moon (this IS a NM!) form a 7th harmonic aspect with Vesta. So, what DO the Sun/Moon (father and mother) want to talk to Jupiter (the philandering prodigal son born to be king) through Vesta (collectives and their traditions and rituals)? I am not sure, but it looks interesting. AND, the distance from Jupiter to Sun/Moon is 10d40m (ten degrees and forty minutes), almost exactly 1/33 of the “wheel in the sky” (that keeps turning).
  5. Grand Cross : We have mentioned this in every recent chart. Neptune and Vesta (whoops, there it is! Again!) oppose each other and the Nodes square both. This is a curious aspect, and it is in play long enough to color this window of time from before the inauguration until ? until ? until ? (Maybe March? April? later?) Seeing collectives (including religious ones) in opposition to dreams, music, poetry, religion, drugs, and alcohol, and FATE (the Nodes) insisting on that conflict, makes for “interesting times” to experience. The Neptune-Vesta-Nodes GC might also be symbolic of the Pandemic as it continues into 2021.
  6. T-Squares: Ordinarily, we can ignore these when looking at a Grand Cross. BUT, these are NOT ordinary times! Complete separate from the previously mentioned T-Square, we have Hygeia opposing Saturn. Interesting by itself, the fact that Saturn is making its first square to Uranus (since April, 2001) creates the T-Square. When Moon reaches 7 Scorpio (in less than three weeks), a different Grand Cross will form. The Neptune-Vesta-nodes GC is a source of discontent and dissent, but the Hygeia-Saturn-Uranus-Moon GC has the potential to cause radical shifts, deep change that may involve (more) violence.

Any given chart can be “farmed” at length for more meaning. We do that all the time with natal charts. But these six key patterns are enough to be “interesting” as the NM “pulls the trigger” on the Saturn-Uranus square on February 17th.

Thor’s Hammer Key (Interlaced) :
A Potential for Violence or the Energy to Get Things Done (You Choose)

Here is the chart for the THK :

Uranus-Neptune-Hygeia-Astraea form this pattern. Uranus and Neptune are heavy hitters; they tend to shape the world for generations to come. Hygeia is “health and healthcare”; Astraea is “law and legal.”

You can piece together the rest. Stated simply, battles are brewing over healthcare and the laws that govern healthcare. But, if you watch the news, then you already knew that!

Rosettas : Opposing Sides Seem to Agree, But Internal Battles are Fierce

Here is the chart:

The massive activation of Mars (FOUR squares!) tells us this is a BIG FIGHT. Better be prepared!

7th Harmonic : Problems with Supply Chains Continue But Innovative Solutions Are Possible

Mars-Ceres-Saturn-Juno form the four planet pattern here. Mars and Saturn are, respectively, the “Lesser Malefic” and the “Greater Malefic,” but how do Ceres (food, supply chains, the grocery store having what you want, enough vaccine to “go around,” and similar) and Juno (traditional female family roles : mother-daughter-sister-aunt-niece but ESPECIALLY the wife angry at the philandering husband) fit in?

Without the modifers: how do Ceres and Juno fit in with Mars and Saturn? Whatever the case, frankly, it SOUNDS bad (geez, Mars & Saturn are in play here; Grant Lewi made much of Mars Square Saturn in Hitler’s natal chart). I don’t know about you, but it sounds scary to me!

Whatever the case, it will be “karmic” (a long overdue balancing of some kind) and (strangely) scientific and technical breakthroughs may result from it. Hold onto your hat!

We also note that Vesta (of the Grand Cross mentioned earlier) forms a TriSeptile with Sun/Moon at time of perfection of the NM. What does THAT mean? We are not certain, but it ties into the GC mentioned earlier and it will have something to say about our traditions and our collectives!

5th Harmonic

At first blush, this chart looks boring. But, then we see that a BiQuintile connects Vesta (!) with Jupiter (AND Venus!). What involvement of the King (and sometimes philandering husband) and his sweetheart, the ever lovely Venus, to these collectives and their ever important traditions? To be certain, Vesta is an important player here.

Grand Cross : Collectives Meet Their Destiny, A Tipping Point for Millions

Click to Open in New Tab

At this point, the GC seems anti-climatic. But, in addition to the Saturn-Uranus square, it is the star for the moment. As seems ever true with Neptune, the pattern risks fading into the background with the other drama in play. But, the key issues of the day can be found here! Poetry and music can heal. Alcohol and drugs (and other addictions) can destroy. Which path do you choose?

Vesta makes this GC about collectives : (military, police, religious orders, healthcare workers). Neptune brings huge changes, some of which are deluded mis-steps and others will make their way into poetry and song.

T-Squares : A Signal of Radical Change Coming

Click to Open in New Tab

That brings us to the final pattern we will review : T-Squares. We ordinarily ignore those when a Grand Cross is in play (a “T” is just a GC with a piece missing), but another T is in play that will have importance in a few weeks when the Moon at 7 Scorpio will make it into a grand cross. (March 3rd)

This is a “fixed” T, and you can expect that some progress will come to a halt because people will choose to NOT give up their positions.

The Fixed Grand Cross is also known as “The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse,” particularly if at fifteen degrees. This one is at seven, but shakeups are still likely.

However, sometimes a GC can be highly productive. A bit of insight or “higher order thinking” can be helpful.
