[Originally posted shortly past Election Day 2016 (November 8, 2016)]

Chances are good that, if you follow this blog, you read my piece “A Few Election Predictions.”  In it, I wrote “Here is our analysis of the 2012 election.  It was also extremely close and extremely messy and difficult to predict.  But, we wrote these words:  “But, Obama has the Moon conjunct Mercury, a bit more favorable as far as aspects go.  We think he will win.”  This time we think Hillary will win.  But, again, it will be both close and messy.”

Well, I got it “wrong.”  The decision came back more quickly than I thought.  But, it was “extremely close,” (not in terms of electoral college but in terms of actual votes in each state / county) and Hillary won the popular vote, albeit narrowly.  I do not think I should fault myself too strongly.

A piece called “MAD PROPHECY, BAD ASTROLOGY AND THE TRUMP WIN” by McCleary has inspired me to write a followup.    The most important point made is one I completely agree with: astrology and Christianity should NOT be viewed as in conflict.  The conflict emerged, and emerges, any time an intermediary attempts to interpret God (or “the Gods” or “the Cosmic” or however you conceive of God, assuming you are not an atheist or agnostic).

Witness any of a number of “Black Magic Specialists” out of India and the Middle East, and you can easily pick up on why the entire domain has a bad name.  Western astrologers are frequently guilty of abuses also, as are card readers, palm readers, and anything remotely similar.  And so was it true with the Catholic Church prior to (and probably after) the Protestant Reformation as they sold “indulgences” and similar corrupt practices.  The problem is NOT with Astrology, itself.  The problem is with intermediaries who “interpret” God.  (The same thing could be said of anyone who has “words to thank for their positions,” not just “poets, priests, and politicians.”)

That said, once the motives of money and power are stripped out of the process (which is one of the main reasons why Grandtrines is both anonymous and not for profit), an entirely new dynamic emerges.  “Getting it wrong” can still happen, but the mistakes tend to be “honest” ones.

So, noting modifications that must be necessary (refer to “Zeitgeist,” which we referenced in our previous post), astrologers CAN be based in Christianity (much to the chagrin of both non-Christian astrologers and fundamentalist Christians).  You may not agree with that, but we are living in the times of Uranus (Aries) square Pluto (Capricorn), and awakenings to ideas outside of the standard mental “boxes” are happening.

Someone almost certainly lived who was the basis for Jesus Christ.  What we have documented in the Christian Bible is almost certainly such a modified story that it may bear little resemblance to what happened in the life of the actual person.  Some of it, we know now, is simply  preposterous if taken literally.  Much of it is almost certainly hidden astrological  (and metaphysical) allegory (as per Zeitgeist).  Embracing these ideas in modern times leads to a radically new form of “Christianity” that is quite remote from the fundamentalists.  It is necessarily tolerant of other belief systems, including the Wiccans that the Fundamentalists reject.  (Indeed, this highly modified variant of Christianity may have more in common with the Wiccans than the Fundamentalists.)

For anyone well read enough to know it, one of the old classics in Astrology in the 1600’s was titled “Christian Astrology.”  Somehow “we” have forgotten or ignore that despite it being one of the most important books ever written regarding Western Astrology.  And, hmm, wonder why he titled it that?

Since my beliefs do not seem to fit with much of anyone (other than McCleary and Lilly and a few like-minded readers), I ordinarily do not discuss those beliefs.

“Mainstream Media” has followed in the footsteps of the aforementioned “black magic specialists,” money changers in the temple, and corrupt priests.  They have been so corrupt and deceptive for decades, now, that I (along with others) prefer to call them “lamestream media.” (See, also: Wikipedia entry discussing lamestream media.  And, though we adopt this term, we mean no offense to anyone with a disability of any kind, except maybe the ones with a comprehensive inability to think for themselves.)

The power they can wield, and money they can make through their influence, is extraordinarily corrupting.  And that is both why THEY “got it wrong” AND why Trump was elected.  Enough of us are fed up with the crap this broken system has been putting out that we voted for Trump and halted them from putting their chosen darling into the highest office of the land.  For once, we won.

The lamestream media would have us believe that Trump was the KKK president and all that rot.  That is what they WANTED us to believe, and that is what they repeatedly published.  But, is that really accurate?

If you think it is accurate, then maybe you should read Jack Brewer’s piece where he says “Former President Bill Clinton’s crime bill resulted in more blacks being sent to prison for non-violent crimes than during any other president’s administration in our nation’s history. Not only did he enforce and promote mass incarceration at that time, he went on to stand behind these policies for almost 20 years. If there is one thing that has stripped underserved black communities of opportunity, it is the unwarranted incarceration of non-violent black men and women that has left hundreds of thousands of families without their fathers or mothers.”

Have you not heard this?  If not, then maybe you are getting too many of your “facts” from television news.

And if both of those things are true, that you did not know what Brewer states but do get your “facts” from television, chances are good you are a Democrat (or Dem leaning independent).

How can I say that?  If you look back at my piece “Presidential Election 2012” you will see this Amazon Heat Map:

That heat map is the kind of thing lamestream media wishes would disappear.  Again, you might ask, “Why?”  The answer is that it tends to indicate that Republicans (and conservative independents and Libertarians) tend to read while Democrats (and liberal independents and Libertarians) tend to watch television.  Sales of paper-based books are dropping, and the pundits and “experts” tended to write off people who read in favor of the dumbed-down television audiences.

But the reasons why paper-based book and newspaper sales are dropping is because those are being displaced by the Internet where, despite the prevalence of Youtube and other “tube sites,” Internet users tend to read, just as you are doing at this moment!  “We” (Internet users) are a totally new ballgame, and we are a huge and growing audience.

Collectively, we do not like dumbed-down anything except maybe “Grumpy Cat” videos.  And, it was “Dewey Beats Truman” all over again.  (See, also: the Wikipedia entry on Dewey Defeats Truman.  I think the Chicago Tribune deserves kudos for having the courage to write that piece.  But, then, they are a bit of mainstream media for people who read.)

In that election (Truman), the pollsters were wrong because they thought checking the automobile registration rolls and phone books were enough for a “representative sample.”  But enough people who did not have either cars or telephones voted to make a big difference.  That same kind of thing happened this time, but it is television viewers who drink the lamestream media Kool-aid as opposed to more discerning Internet audiences.

It was NOT just “people who do not have a college education.”  (As an aside, that was touted as some kind of insult.  We cannot say anything untoward anyone because of race, gender, religion, sexual preference or the rest of the laundry list, but lamestream media pundits can slam an entire group of people because maybe they did not have an educational opportunity?  And they call themselves “liberals”?  Really?)

The fact is, any astrologer worth their salt knows that these events (including Brexit and more to come) are being driven by the series of Uranus square Pluto transits that have been written about so much.  Those are about empowering the disenfranchised and often about drawing new lines in the sand.  The fascists, now, are the “liberals” who want to slam their groupthink down our throat using three populous states and a few “swing states.”

The conservatives, now, have become the “rebels.”  (Maybe not the best way to say that.  If you are a liberal and a “rebel” then it refers to mythic poetry of Star Wars, and you are a hero.  If you are a conservative and a “rebel” then you are considered a de facto white supremacist.  How is THAT for chicken-sh*t double talk?  It ain’t just “Crooked Hillary” that is out lyin’.)  Jack Brewer has a good point about the lies and deception coming out of the “liberals.”  And people, black, white, latino, asian and other, are awfully tired of it.  Mark my words, the election of Donald Trump to the White House is just the beginning.

This is not just about a somewhat vitriolic conservative going into office.  It is not just about the fact that NAFTA and Obama-care are abominations.  (Free trade is needed, and health care reform is needed (“pre-existing conditions” were just a way to cheat the public), but “open borders” is not the answer and the “Affordable Care Act” has been a disaster.)  New lines are being drawn.  The Pluto Return for the United States circa 2020 will tell us just how much.


(I thought I had better include the Grumpy Cat video for any liberals who are actually reading this. 🙂 )

A Review of 2016

Tags: , , , ,

In most previous years, WordPress provided (apparently automatically) a “year in review” post, such as this one.  That did not happen for this year, and I can only guess that is because this blog is either too old or receives “too much” traffic.  Regardless, we are producing our own variant.

  • Total Pageviews: >77,000
  • Total Visitors: > 33,000
  • Views per Visitor = 2.38
  • Posts published: 3,435 (mostly reblogs but SOME of it our own content)

Traffic by country (and, oddly, this shows far less than >77,000; unsure of the discrepancy):


The only thing “surprising” here is that South Africa and Bulgaria have passed up Australia in the number of pageviews.  Again, unsure why.

Also surprising: the drop in Canada’s traffic, which routinely tied for second and third place with the U.K. in the past.  We see, instead, that India has supplanted Canada in traffic, and that does not tell the entire story.  I routinely have chats with various people from India, this blog is rising in popularity in India, and I would not be entirely surprised to see them challenge the U.K. this year (2017) for level of traffic.  Bulgaria and Estonia have been strong the past few years, but Estonia seems to have dropped out altogether.

Most Popular Pages:


Select links from those stats:

We have omitted links to our homepage (for obvious reasons), and we are glad that the home page (counted two different ways for reasons we do not understand) as well as three of our forecasts (not reblogs) occupied the top slots.

The traffic for the weekly forecast for Week 21 (466 views) was sufficient justification for spinning off “Weekly Forecasts,” (we also had some other good weeks, not listed here) but then traffic plummeted as soon as the spinoff was done and never came back up.  Even worse, the time requirement to write a good set of forecasts is about five hours per week, and that is about 250 hours per year, or a little over six forty hour work-weeks.  I simply cannot justify doing that for “free,” and until I can develop a way to “sufficiently” monetize that process the weekly forecasts will continue to be “on hold.”

That Clarissa (Viva Combusta) occupied another top slot is also not surprising, and I am willing to bet Tara Greene will be in a top slot in 2017.

Note, also, that “likes” do not really tell what traffic is.  “An Exploration of November 8” had 961 pageviews but only seven (7) likes (other than the one I give myself to “prime the pump”).  961 views but only seven likes? Really?  This kind of thing was true on the other pages as well, although Clarissa did manage to obtain eleven “likes” for her 333 pageviews.

This does beg a question: what do “likes” mean, if anything?  (Isn’t traffic really a much better measure?  Maybe this is a question for Social Psychologists as much as it is for Marketing researchers.)

While Full Moons and New Moons are hot as far as search terms go, the hottest is “horoscope” (predictably) followed by “mercury retrograde 2016” (maybe not quite so predictably).  If you want traffic, then write about Mercury Retrograde!

In any case, 2016 was a good year as far as traffic to Grand Trines went.

Edit:  Apparently, decision makers at WordPress decided to NOT do the Annual Report (of stats) this year.  Thanks to John, Jr. who pointed this out.

Divination Counseling Service

By Colleen Schmidt

New Moon: Sun at 7 degrees 59 minutes of Capricorn287

ARIES:  This month may highlight issues with automobiles or vehicles in general.  There could be matters that are out of control to the point where they could feel very self-destructive.  Your mind and/or memories are erratic.  Be wary of the risks this month as winning, achieving goals and seeing just rewards are important BUT you might plunge into something that could be self-destructive or defeating.  This month also highlights marriage and other close partnerships.

TAURUS:  Many times this month will feel fated and predestined, as if you are being tested in some way.  You might sense things are not being done correctly or that they are being done backwards.  You just want to get to the bottom of things and you feel as if you have been enduring a great deal.  Memories could be triggered by photographs. …

A Few Predictions that do not require astrology (2017 et seq, Presidential Politics)

[Originally posted 5:31 AM CST November 8, 2016; minor edits on Feb 10th 2017]

3  Election Predictions

No Astrology Needed

Before we elect a new President here in the United States, facing the choice between Donald Trump (and his family, hereafter “Trump” as is popular) and Hillary Clinton (who is a package with Bill Clinton, the impeached former President, and their daughter), I would like to make a few predictions without astrology (and a bit of one with astrology).

  1.  Whoever is elected will face impeachment, though different reasons apply.If Hillary is elected, the same kind of conduct that has characterized the Clintons in the White House before (email scandals, Bill’s sexual predation, etc.) will continue and impeachment proceedings will be launched.If Donald is elected, his various comments (such as the “locker room talk”) and past actions (such as the Trump Casino boondoggle) will form the basis of investigations and, again, impeachment proceedings will begin.Whether these impeachment proceedings will happen in 2017 or 2019 requires further analysis.
  2. Obama inherited a financial mess from George Bush consequent to the unnecessary war in Iraq (probably to help make the cronies of the Bush family wealthy but excused by the events of 9/11, sort of, as we went hunting for “weapons of mass destruction”), and Obama’s continued incompetence has NOT healed the economy despite all the rhetoric he is pushing.A particularly bad “crash” is facing us after a dishwater tepid “recovery” and whoever comes into office will be facing that financial crisis.  But, to some degree, a bit of a coverup will be done to give Obama a chance to save face.
  3. In order to cure #2, the incumbent will have little choice but to pursue a “hot” war (tanks and soldiers and battlefields, and as opposed to a “cold” war using spies and diplomacy).This will probably be a middle east war, will probably involve ISIS or some similar entity, and will probably have a precipitating event similar to 9/11 (and “intelligence failures” will be covered up again, just like what happened years ago with Pearl Harbor).

I think any sufficiently astute observer of 20th Century history, and early 21st Century history, can easily piece together what I am saying here.

A Wee Bit of Astrology Needed

[If you have not read our August 2015 analysis of the election, you might want to do so.]

Now the part that requires a bit more analysis, and I tend to rely on astrology here:

If Trump is elected, we will move into a “hot war.”  But if the Clintons go back in (and, as of this writing, the indicators are that the Clinton branch of the Bush-Clinton machinery is likely to be back in the White House), then we will go into a “*HOT* war.”  This war might be the first one to involve nukes since World War II.

(Might it be “Armageddon”?  Let’s hope not!)

Mars and Pluto

Why?  What astrology supports a “hot war” regardless of which one is elected?  The answer is that *BOTH* of them have Mars (War) in Leo (Presidents and Kings) AND Pluto (Annihilation, Nukes, Spies, Assassinations) in Leo (Presidents and Kings).

However, Hillary has these CONJUNCT (highly amplified and focused) whereas Donald merely has them in the same sector (bad enough!).  This deserves a separate, detailed article later, but election day is at hand (and the time is not  available to do this kind of detailed analysis).

In either case, the entry of Mars into Aquarius (opposing, ultimately, both the Mars and Pluto of BOTH candidates) marks the coming of the event that precipitates the war.

Strange Bedfellows

One more prediction, part astrology (based on Mars/Pluto) and part not: do not be surprised at all for the one who is NOT the incumbent to become a supporter of the one who IS the incumbent, particularly in this matter of the “hot war.”  Both have Mars/Pluto in Leo, and politics does make strange bedfellows.

Post Script:  (a rant)

Regarding “Armageddon”: I am not a Bible-thumper, but the Christian Bible does have some valid points from a metaphysical perspective, or at least that is my opinion.  As is true for many of us in “The South” (of the United States), I am from a Christian heritage and respect those teachings as much as I can but I cannot ignore certain scientific challenges (example: the idea of a “literal” virgin birth) and historical ideas that have long been concealed but is now coming to light.


What might those historical ideas be?  I think that Zeitgeist the Movie has some valid points.   (I am referring to the roughly the first thirty minutes of the movie, specifically but NOT necessarily the later parts of the movie.  (As always, you will have to decide for yourself.))  Let’s face it, astrology is woven all through the original Christian mythos, and 2,000 years of attempting to purge it has simply failed, as censorship inevitably does.

Persecution of Prometheus

What really irritates me the most about the Christian ideology is the conversion of Prometheus, a hero in the Greek mythology who brought the gift of fire (and light and enlightenment and the source of the “Olympic Torch”) to the humans from the Olympian gods into the “fallen angel” named “Lucifer” and an obvious villain in the Christian story.

Frankly, that stinks!  SHAME on whoever did that!  Prometheus is the ancient emblem of our ability to innovate and create art and technology.  But I suppose it is precedent for our collective tendency to sometimes villify people (or ideals) who are truly heroes!

Whoever did that nasty deed was the enemy of independent people who choose to think for themselves, outside the guidelines of the thought police.

Temptation is the Philosopher’s Stone

Do you like Lucifer the Television Show?  I do!  He makes great points: his power stems, almost completely, from his ability to tempt.  Were it not for temptation, he would have no power.  But, then again, neither would any of the advertising on lamestream media.

But, let us be clear: temptation is the Philosopher’s Stone.  In the crucible of the misery that results from our own bad choices, temptation leads us down a road that transforms us either by our death (literally! as in from alcohol or drug overdoses) or that metaphorically “kills” the old self leaving someone new, as was true with Saul / Paul.

Being a “message bearer” is a dangerous job.  The Titans rejected Prometheus after he liberated Zeus (Jupiter, and higher order thought) from Kronos (Saturn, and the bonds and the exoskeleton of “how we have always done things”).  He was welcomed by Zeus into Olympus and did well there until he gave fire (light, reasoning, insight) to the humans.  Then he was kicked out of Olympus.

But, we humans had to commit the same error as the Gods.  As part of the price of learning to reason and have insight, Prometheus exposed the power of Temptation to humans, so we showed our collective gratitude by renaming Prometheus into Lucifer and sending him to Hell (also known as “casting him into the darkness”).

If Prometheus could speak directly to the typical “Christians” and the Christian Power Structure, he would probably say this: “O why dost though persecute me so?”

I bet they might answer thus: because it is just too tempting.

2012 Revisited: A Messy and Close Election

Edit: [late on 2016 November 08, near 6 PM CST]  “We also recommend that you read this analysis by Katie Turner over at Know Your Vibes Astrology.  It is a good analysis.  However, I would offer that I think, long term, that Hillary is by far the more dangerous of the two.  (It has to do with this issue of a “hot war” I wrote about earlier.  Only time will tell.  At an intuitive level, without any deep analysis, I tend to agree also with the others that, whoever goes in, we are almost certainly looking at a one term president, similar to the Jimmy Carter situation of the late 1970’s.)

Here is our analysis of the 2012 election.  It was also extremely close and extremely messy and difficult to predict.  But, we wrote these words:  “But, Obama has the Moon conjunct Mercury, a bit more favorable as far as aspects go.  We think he will win.”  This time we think Hillary will win.  But, again, it will be both close and messy.  And, we expect impeachment proceedings to be at least attempted if not completed.”

Neptune Conjunct South Node: Will They Live Long Enough to be Impeached?

Edit #2 November 8th [about 6:35 CST]:  Tara Greene has posted “You’ve never seen this, Neptune conjunct Pisces South Node.” So, what was going on in 1849?  This was.  More specifically, United States President Zachary Taylor took office on March 4, 1849.  “Taylor’s status as a national hero as a result of his victories in the Mexican-American War won him election to the White House despite his vague political beliefs.”  (Almost sounds like Donald Trump a bit, doesn’t it?)

But, more disturbing, is his death not even two years into the term: “Taylor died suddenly of a stomach-related illness in July 1850, so had little impact on the sectional divide that led to civil war a decade later.”  Sworn in in March of 1849 (Pisces) and dead by July of 1850 (Cancer).

Therefore, we modify our #1 impeachment prediction based on the astrological consideration of Neptune conjunct South Node: the impeachment proceedings will be attempted (or completed) given that the incumbent lives long enough for this to occur.  (And, based on what happened to the POTUS the LAST time we had the Neptune / South Node aspect, we are concerned regarding some kind of “repeat” could occur.  Maybe the big question is actually who will be Vice President?)

Jupiter Quincunx Neptune 2016-10-23 (Focused Yod + Thor’s Hammer)

Jupiter Quincunx Neptune 2016-10-23 (Focused Yod + Thor’s Hammer)

As we have written elsewhere, this is part of a larger pattern that we  detailed in August of 2014 and, arguably, extends back to 2012, including the notorious Winter Solstice of 2012.  We thought that the Focused Yod in the Winter Solstice of 2012 was the most important characteristic, along with a Diamond pattern that manifested later that evening.

Perfection of this occurrence of Jupiter quincunx Neptune also contains a Yod, and if you are willing to use the Nodes (lunar nodes, “Ketu” and “Rahu”) then a Focused Yod is also present here.  We also have an additional analysis of this aspect located here in our Week 44 Forecast for 2016.

First, perfection of the aspect filtered for the Yod:


[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that Neptune (Pisces) is at the apex with Jupiter (Libra) on one leg and the Moon (Leo) on the other.  By itself, this Yod tells us that we face a decision, and it is a major decision.  When we add the Nodes, we have a Focused Yod:


[Click Image to Enlarge]

So, in addition to facing a “big decision,” we know we are dealing with our individual and collective fates / karma (the Nodes).  Chances are good that we are dealing with issues of service to others, jails, institutions, or acts of “self-undoing.”  Health issues or spiritual matters may be at the forefront also.

A pair of overlapping Thor’s Hammers (God’s Fists) are also present:


[Click Image to Enlarge]

These tell us that danger, real danger, exists as tempers flare and the potential for people, places, and things to go “boom.”  Note that this is following only a few days after perfection of Mars conjunct Pluto, perfecting recently on October 19th.  If you can focus this energy and the related emotions, then you can accomplish much.

We have a modest amount of 5th Harmonic activity, but do not see a coherent pattern in these aspects:


[Click Image to Enlarge]

So, some potential for bright ideas and inventions exists.  But what is more interesting is a triangular pattern of 7th order harmonic aspects:


[Click Image to Enlarge]

Moon (Leo), Pluto (Capricorn), and Ceres (Aries) form this triangular pattern.  Mars is two degrees away from Pluto, and Uranus is five degrees away from Ceres.  Pluto and Ceres have a well known history, the story being that Pluto had Ceres (prosperity, food) below ground for about half of the year (a period of fasting and famine) and Ceres was above ground for half the year (a period of food and feasting).  Halloween / Samhain marked the start of Fall, reputedly, in Celtic cultures so this set of issues seems somehow appropriate in a metaphoric sense.

We think issues of prosperity / feast / famine will face some (or many) of us at this time.  It may be telling us something important about this United States Presidential election and what will be coming afterwards.  What may be unclear at this time will be perfectly clear by the period from next April to August (with perfection of this aspect again in May and July).

The last time we had a similar series of aspects was 2004.  The next time will be 2027.  While they are not a “once a century” kind of rare aspect, they are not particularly frequent either.

Mars Conjunct Pluto 2016-10-19

You have been feeling this building.  Solar Fire shows this aspect, perfecting October 19th, to be in effect during this window:

We start with the 7th harmonic filtering of the chart rather than finishing with it.  This is the pattern that can give us some hope during what may be a difficult time for many people.

We see a triangular 7th harmonic (septiles!) pattern involving Mars/Pluto, Juno (trust), and Ceres (prosperity).  In an ordinary and “low” form, this is females (primarily) deciding to go on extreme diets prior to the holidays.  It is not healthy, and we hope that not so many people will do this.  Don’t take that path.

In a higher form, this is about trust and prosperity and picking your friends carefully.  The Hele pattern that is also present confirms that the choices of friends and allies made at this time is particularly important.

Here is the chart, filtered for 7th harmonic (septile) aspects:

Here is the Hele, a signal to pick your allies carefully at this time:

The remainder of the patterns are hard, except for a single Grand Trine pattern.  We start with a Grand Cross formed from Moon opposite Saturn (also very “tough”!) both square to the Nodes (Karma):

Note that some astrologers will not consider this a “Grand Cross” because the nodes are “points” rather than “planets.”  Vedic astrologers, though, do treat the Nodes as planets.  (For purposes of patterns, I agree.)

A Hard Rectangle is also present:

We also have TWO Thor’s Hammer patterns present2016-10-19-mars-conjunct-pluto-thors-hammer[Click Image to Enlarge]

Thor’s Hammers (God’s Fist) are associated with people, places, and things going BOOM!  So are Hard Rectangles.  Grand Crosses (the equivalent of four T-Squares overlapping) can be also.  It is all very difficult, and it is associated with Mars (violence, war) conjunct Pluto (the higher octave of Mars and police, intelligence agencies, drugs, poisons, and death by assassination).

We do have one more bright spot: a Grand Trine (Grand Air Trine: Sun in Libra, Pallas in Aquarius, and Moon in Gemini) and this is very good for generating ideas and communications.  Avoid resorting to violence; talk it out if at all possible!

Finally, we present a list of occurrences of Mars conjunct Pluto:

When to post a New Moon or Full Moon Post

October 15, 2016 at 2:16 pm | Posted in 2016, 2016-Lunations, Astrology, Editorial, Lunations, Special Days | 9 Comments

Most of my content, for about the past two years, has been reblogged.  Through a near “accident” (wondering what WordPress could do and testing different options) I transformed my blog into a “content aggregator blog.”  The decision was the correct one for me though it requires hours a day to maintain.

That said, I see a huge variety in the timing of posts for a lunation (Full Moon or New Moon).  Having watched this process for about 50 lunations or more, I have some observations:

  1.  If you are not interested in “click through” from reblogs by someone like me, time your posts for 24 to 48 hours before the lunation.  Less than 24 hours, and you have lost your audience.  They have gone out to play, and they are no longer interested in what you have to say.
  2. If you want the benefit of reblogs, as well as the full attention of your audience, time your posts about 48 to 72 hours out.  You will capture about 24 to 48 hours of audience, and my reblogs will capture the rest.  Your click through rate will tell you how interested people are in your particular way of analyzing and describing the upcoming lunation (as well as providing useful solutions to the many who seek those).
  3. From my vantage point, I can see clear “winners” and “losers” in terms of who gets readership.  If you want to see who the top five were for this Full Moon (October 15/16), check the links at the bottom of my page for the Full Moon.  The order has been randomized to obscure who was “#1” and who was “#2” and so forth.  But these five had nearly as much traffic as everyone else combined.  (OK, my page did well, too.  But I am taking myself out of the mix since I cannot evaluate myself neutrally.)  See, also: Full Moon of October 2016.

As an example, here are my stats leading up to the Full Moon of October 15/16 (Saturday night, and weekend Full Moons are almost always the busiest in terms of traffic):

Note how *SLOW* the “day of” the Full Moon traffic is compared to the previous two days!

Harvest Moon 2016 (2016-10-15) A Butterfly and a Hard Rectangle

Harvest Moon 2016 (2016-10-15) A Butterfly and a Hard Rectangle

More than a few of you have correctly deduced that this is one of the more special Full Moon(s).  We begin by showing a chart of the FM that contains a pattern we have not seen before.  We call it a “Hard Butterfly” in the absence of any other name to the contrary.  It is composed of two interlaced T-Squares that also contain a Hard Rectangle within them.  Here is the fourth order harmonic chart that most clearly elucidates this pattern.

Here is the Full Moon chart filtered to more clearly show the Hard Rectangle:

As we have discussed before, these kinds of patterns (T-Squares and especially Hard Rectangles) provide so much energy that they are “dangerous.”  You can accomplish much, but you run the risk of “overdoing it.”  Martians (Intelligence Agencies, Police, and Athletes) will tend to do well and in some cases have tremendous accomplishments but, again, run the risk of “overdoing it.”  If you are not a Martian, then make certain you avoid dangerous people, places, and things and avoid being such a person yourself.

A Thor’s Hammer (God’s Fist) pattern is also present with Saturn (the Greater Malefic, and a source of tests, trials, and tribulations) is at the Apex.  This is yet another amplifier of the situation we have already described, and it is associated with people, places, and things going “boom.”  Here is the same chart but filtered for the TH:

We will likely have more to say and more to add over the course of the day as the FM moves towards perfection.  Till then, we encourage you to focus your efforts into beneficial and useful work, avoid dangerous people, places, and things, and have as much safe fun as you can muster on the even of this “Harvest Moon.”

Mercury Square Mars 2016-10-13 (Thor’s Hammer)

The bad news is that, once again, we face this dangerous aspect.  The good news is that it is the last occurrence this year.  In fact, SolarFire’s Electional Search feature does not find another occurrence until 2018 (refer to list, below).

This one is uncomplicated, and a single pattern is present: a Thor’s Hammer.  Watch your temper today, avoid sharp words and avoid dangerous people, places, and things.  Whatever it is, walk away from it.  If you are a warrior or criminal, then you might be empowered today.  But, if you are one of those and you lose, then you will tend to “lose big.”

We present the chart for perfection of Mercury Square Mars on this date, filtered for the Thor’s Hammer pattern:

2016-10-07 Sun Square Pluto (Thor’s Hammer)

This repeats in two versions, each once a year. The other one was earlier in April, and both will repeat in April and October for the next few years.  We repeat what we said in April: Sun Square Pluto is about power and power struggles. On a personal basis, chances are good you will see conflict, and you may see violence (including the use of lethal force). Police and intelligence agencies tend to be activated at this time, and death and taxes are issues, too.   We add that you might want to look back to what was happening on or about April 6th to understand better what is happening at this time.

Tara Greene,Tarot Reader, Astrology Psychic

The pre-eclipse healing sweatlodge is here. It’s a very complex day. Use the planetary indicators to prepare for the 16th Pisces Lunar eclipse.

The PISCES moon inconjuncts Jupiter  in the wee hours.

The idealism, projections, and delusions meet the law. JUPITER the SACRED law maker. The indigenous peoples are being arrested at the DAP and the media made it look like they won. LIBRA is all about seeing and reading both sides of any issue.

1. Question your own projections. 

Pisces Moon astrology Tara Greene

The PISCES moon inconjuncts Jupiter in the wee hours.

You may have difficulty sleeping in the pre- Full Moon light. Alternating between expansion and contraction it is very much the feeling of being in labor and having contractions.

2. Where do you feel you are at in the birthing process?

 the SUN opposes CHIRON in PISCES early in the a.m. your dreams may reveal much.

Lunar ecllipse Visibility of the lunar eclipse, which is penumbral so appears shaded this time, not totally obscured

The full moon Penumbral Lunar Eclipse on Friday 16 September at 18h55 GMT in the water sign of Pisces brings with it the last of the winter snow and a few days of soaking rain for us here at home in the sunny south, although the north has not been spared that swamping feeling, as China and Taiwan currently recover from “Meranti” – its worst super typhoon in recent history (since the 1800’s), just hours before the full moon. Leaving 1.6 million homes without electricity overnight, many are feeling the soggy effects of this watery lunar peak experience, which begins at 16h55 GMT, peaks at 18h55 (20h55 RSA time) and ends at 20h55 GMT.

Super typhoon Meranti is the strongest storm to hit the planet this year, listed as category 5, with 3000kn/h winds…

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Pisces

Mars in Sagittarius trines retrograde Eris in Aries

The lunar eclipse in Pisces today is marking the midway point of the current lunar cycle eclipse that began with the solar eclipse in Virgo on 1/9/16. With the Virgo-Pisces axis involved in this Lunar Eclipse, it presses us to look more closely at our lives, what needs do we have?, What do we feel is lacking? and want do we to bring into our lives? When this axis is activated  we search for a balance between our material world and our spiritual reality. Virgo energy is all about bring balance in our daily life and routines. Virgo is about bringing order in our physical and general health and learning new too tools and techniques to deal with day to day life. Pisces is the sign that rules the tools that we use to…

The Pisces full moon and lunar eclipse window is open. Exact at 12:05PM PDT on Friday, September 16th, how this lunation impacts you will vary based on where it lands in your chart.

Shiny sun and mental Mercury in Virgo stare down the sensitive moon conjunct wounded healer Chiron in the emotional, watery depths of Pisces, and both ends of this see-saw square passionate Mars in the truth seeking sign of Sagittarius, creating what is known as a mutable T square. Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces are mutable signs, so named because they represent the energy of the changing seasons. As an example, right now the sun is in Virgo and the season (at least in the northern hemisphere) is summer, but in a week’s time the sun will enter Libra and Fall will begin. Virgo energy supports transition. So does Sagittarius, the sign that the sun is in during late…

T-Square Eclipse Style – Sep16

5D Astrology

This Lunar Eclipse is packed with other Planetary energies affecting it.

At 3:05pm on Friday, the Moon at 24:20 Pisces Opposes the Sun at 24:20 Virgo. But the Moon will be Conjunct Chiron Retrograde in Pisces as he applies to the Sun. Mars in Sagittarius is applying to a Square to both the Sun and Moon, creating a T-Square that pours the energy into the empty corner at 22-24 Gemini.

Conjunctions are considered ‘hard’ energies as it merges both Planets’ energies. Oppositions are about contrast that can only be seen through the polarity of the 2 ends. And Squares are the ‘hardest’ of all presenting real challenges. But T-Squares are very concentrated challenges affecting 3 areas of our lives at the same time.

Over Cheboygan, MI, where I live, the Ascendant for the Eclipse chart falls at 22:34 Sagittarius Conjunct Mars at 23:17 Sagittarius. Mars is just separating from his…
