First of all, many of us will be impelled to action by the impending conjunction of the retrograde Mercury with the Sun at this time.  We will feel that “things” are overdue, and that we must act.  A real danger of acting rashly exists here.  Act, to be sure, but act wisely.

For the details of this, check the midpoint tree of Mercury on the Wheel and Data page, shown later in this article.

Full Moon Activates the 2012 Solstice Focused Yod

This Taurus Sun / Scorpio Moon Full Moon occurs at 8 Taurus / Scorpio, which is an activating point for the 2012 Solstice Focused Yod.  Events that happen on or around this time will tend to have long term consequences, and that is confirmed by the final Saturn / Uranus opposition of that series with Saturn / Uranus in the final degrees of Virgo / Pisces.

Unquestionably this is a signal of some kind for the financial markets, but what kind?  Some say a recovery; some say a “Bear Rally.”  In this case, the entry of Pluto into Capricorn a year ago signals the beginning of a long period of what might be called “Fiscal Conservatism.”  Pluto is related to investigations, and Capricorn is the sign of finances and financial markets.  Deep, probing investigations into the financial services industry is, or should be, the norm. The Saturn / Uranus opposition series has been the herald, and the astrological avatar, of the recession.  That opposition series also signal a need for evaluation of existing structures (Saturn) and possible change (Uranus).

Hele of Full Moon of April 28th

This Hele appears to be active and important at the time of this Full Moon:

Since Hele is a new pattern, this is difficult to interpret.  However, it appears to at least potentially involve the severe anger of betrayal (Pallas) aligned with Venus (Art & Beauty or Finances) in relation to Neptune (Deception), Moon (Full), and Saturn (Authority).  An “explosion” (not literal) regarding Goldman-Sachs, Madoff, etc. may be about to “come to a head” today.  A pimple appears waiting to be popped.

Venus in a Yod with Ceres and Pluto v. The Full Scorpio Moon

That said, the current economic condition is about as good as it will get.  It may or may not have peaked yet, but the exuberance of the preceding twenty years is no longer warranted.  The Venus / Cerus inconjunct confirms that some (many) will be irrationally exuberant over the current rally.  Venus is also inconunct Ceres, and Ceres and Pluto are conjunct each other.

In fact, Venus is in a Yod with Ceres and Pluto on one side, and the Moon on the other.  Ceres / Pluto conjunct could be called the “I want to have my cake and eat it, too” aspect.  You cannot have both, but that is exactly what we feel.  A decision must be made, based on the conjunction alone.  But, Yods emphasize decisions, and we are almost never satisfied with the results (from a hindsight vantage point).

To best understand the energy of this full moon, read about Ceres and Pluto here.

In this case, we must make a decision about decisions.  What issue will we focus upon?  If we focus upon a Ceres/Pluto viewpoint, then we will be faced with the challenge of “having our cake and eating it too.”  If we pick the Moon, then we are picking a Full Moon with the Sun Conjunct Retrograde Mercury.  This means that we must double check everything and look at old projects we had discarded.  In the end, we will have to balance investigation and intrigue (the Scorpio Moon) with art, beauty, and productivity (Taurus).  Investigation is necessary, but investigation (alone) WILL NOT GET THINGS DONE.  No matter how we approach things today, if the 2012 Solstice is important, then we will see today (and this week) as a turning point in our lives.

On a more personal note, this is a tough time for anyone who starts a diet.  Certainly it CAN be done; Pluto helps but only through pain or traumatic events.  The Ceres (giving into the temptation to eat what you want) is far easier and far more pleasant.  All that said, here is the Full Moon Chart:

Mercury and Algol for 2010

April 25, 2010 at 2:22 pm | Posted in 2012, Astrology, Patterns | Comments Off on Mercury and Algol for 2010
Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Now that routine forecasting is on Weekend Forecast, Grand Trines can be devoted to more exotic subjects.

Given the season of havoc that has occurred recently, after Moon CNJ Algol at the time of the Spring Equinox, we will pick up with Mercury CNJ Algol, for 2010, as a topic.

Mercury Conjunct Algol on June 7th

Continuing with the position of the Moon Conjunct Algol at the Vernal Equinox as a topic of interest, Mercury will touch that point a number of times this year.  This is a potent activator.  The Sun as an activator is a topic for another post; Lunar returns are obvious (but also a topic for another post).  Venus is interesting and has been briefly analyzed; upon touching Algol it produced a number of tornadoes in Texas as well as a devastating oil rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico (the “Deepwater Horizon” catastrophe).  Outer planets are an entirely different topic warranting a number of posts.

That said, Mercury is currently retrograde and overdue (pardon the wordplay) for an analysis.  For fun, we are looking initially at higher order harmonics: quintile & septile.  Here is the chart for Mercury touching Algol on June 7th, focused on higher order harmonics:

Pluto BiQuintiles both the Moon and Mercury providing a sense of urgency here.  The mood is one of “we have to get things done.”  Powerplays are a certainty; could they lead to disaster?  For any willing to speculate on this chart and aspects, the remainder can be addressed in comments.

Outside of the topic of disasters, some people / organizations will be able to accomplish some amazing work in creative areas at this time.  But, they would be wise to make safety paramount.

Quintile Kites circa June 7, 2010

This period is active for Quintile Kites.  Using June 6th through June 8th for the search period, the first Quintile Kite involves the Ascendant at 8 Scorpio.  Though one of many, that chart is representative of the energy.  Of course, since the Ascendant is involved, the energy will manifest at different times in different regions.  On the East Coast (of the U.S.) it is an hour earlier; on the West Coast two hours later.  Here is the chart and the sensitive periods:

Mayan Calendar (2012) and Saturn in Scorpio 2

April 17, 2010 at 11:18 am | Posted in 2012, Astrology | Comments Off on Mayan Calendar (2012) and Saturn in Scorpio 2
Tags: , , , ,

Here is a chart for Winter Solstice 2012.   It is set local to Plano.  Jupiter is highly aspected, which is interesting because the two planets of spirituality are Neptune and Jupiter.  The prominent pattern here is a Focused Yod (crucial decisions) involving Jupiter and Venus (in opposition) and Saturn and Pluto (Sextile).  For more analysis of patterns, click here.

Here is the 2010 Winter’s Solstice chart, set in Plano TX:

Here is a World Map of this event.  Noteworthy: a Uranus Line near Washington, DC (& East Coast), Miami, and Lima, Peru.

2010 Spring Equinox Post Hoc (After the Fact) Analysis

March 21, 2010 at 11:01 am | Posted in 2012, Astrology, Predictions | Comments Off on 2010 Spring Equinox Post Hoc (After the Fact) Analysis
Tags: , , , , ,

Barbara Hand Clow has an interesting article with a different viewpoint on the Equinox.  She presents a meditation (many people are searching for that) along with an analysis.  She focuses on the T-Square between Sun / Saturn / Pluto.

An Equinox is a Type of “Solar Return”


From a certain vantage point, a solstice or equinox chart is an annual “return.”  Since such as “Solar Return” happens when the Sun is at precisely the same point each year, one can argue that the “Sun disappears.” That means that the Moon becomes the most important object in the sky, hence the earlier article about the Algol Moon.  (In an odd way, this is a wee bit like a Solar Eclipse.)

Midpoint of Venus and Jupiter replace the Sun this year

With the Sun gone, and the Moon analyzed earlier, analysis of the T-Square should begin with Venus and Jupiter.  Venus and Jupiter are exactly 16 degrees, each, from the 0 Aries point; they are equidistant.  This midpoint is less that a degree from the 0 point, meaning (for most purposes) it is exact.  It is also less that a degree from the opposition to Saturn (it is exact).  Here is the chart, with midpoints.

Aspects to, and Uses of, Venus / Jupiter Midpoint

The midpoint of Venus and Jupiter is likely the most beneficial midpoint that can be experienced, and this means the possibility of a very good year.  (Of course, some people will benefit more than others, depending on their natal chart.  Unfavorable aspects can still exist in relation to the natal chart.  And, even if the natal chart is superb, the person can choose to squander the opportunity.)

Sometimes astrology says what we already know, and it does so here:  Venus (prosperity and harmony) will grow (Jupiter, the great amplifier) if we both (1) work for it and (2) eliminate the unnecessary (both of these are opposing Saturn).  A great opportunity exists this year; this is the “brass ring” for some people.

Pluto, square and completing the T-Square, says to achieve this we must undergo profound transformation.  In some settings someone must die, but someone will be born.  (Or “one door closes, and another opens.”)  This is not necessarily a “natural person”; it could be a business, relationship, building, community, or maybe just a very entrenched habit that has outworn its usefulness.

The Answer is not in the T-Square; The Answer is in the Triangle of Potential

But, still, the answer is not quite found in any of these.  Because of the “Triangle of Potential” (mentioned earlier), with Mars at 0 Leo, action and leadership will be necessary.  Pluto indicates a possible change in leadership.  Pluto inconjunct (aka quincunx) Leo indicates a dissatisfaction with leadership.

(I am not speaking of Presidential leadership, though I could be.  The populace routinely becomes disenchanted with Presidents as campaign promises routinely remain unfulfilled.  But, I am talking local leadership.  A patriarch or matriarch in a family or business may need to move into an advisory role, lest that family or business disintegrate altogether.)

But, again, Mars is the key here: take action, if you want to grow (Jupiter) your prosperity (Venus) through the hard work and self-sacrifice (Saturn) and losses (Pluto) that are likely to come to pass.

Personal and Global Communications will blend and will be essential to the change

Mercury and Uranus form a midpoint that even more precisely addressed the T-Square (and the Triangle of Potential).  Both govern communication (and Mercury governs transportation), with Mercury being more private and personal and Uranus being more public and global, so communications of all kinds will be at the center of achievement.

In fact, the most important achievements this year may involve communications and how we communicate with each other, as personal and global communications become intertwined and blended.  Perhaps this is a harbinger of 2012, and the changes yet to come.
