Jupiter Square Saturn 2016-05-26

First, you might want to peek at our analysis of this aspect on March 23, 2016 and August 3, 2015.  The perfection of today’s square is the third in a three party sequence, and we will not see a similar pattern repeat until 2024 / 2025.

Before we address the regular patterns, we should note some remarkable fifth harmonic activity.  Two triangular patterns composed of fifth harmonic activity are present.  One is formed by Juno (in Scorpio; trust v. betrayal, wives, sisters, daughters) at the apex and Sun in Gemini on one leg and Chiron in Pisces on the other.  This Jupiter / Saturn square has this particularly powerful pattern in play.  Jupiter/Saturn aspects are associated with changes in the financial markets, and we note that issues of trust (Juno) have become important (if you do not know this, then you need to watch “The Big Short” and “Money Monster“).

The other triangular pattern has Uranus at the apex, Mars on one leg, and the North Node on the other leg.  As with the first triangular pattern, each leg is a BiQuintile aspect (144 degrees) with Mars / Node separated by a quintile.  We can expect surprises.

All of this fifth harmonic activity signals the potential for  creative breakthroughs and genius level solutions, possibly to problems in the financial markets.

Here is the chart for perfection of Jupiter square Saturn, filtered for fifth harmonic aspects:

Seventh harmonic aspects are also active (not quite as active as fifth harmonic), and we present the same chart filtered for those:

2016-05-26 Jupiter Square Saturn (7th Harmonic)

Sun, Ceres, and North Node in a triangular seventh harmonic aspect tell us that some “karma” may need to be considered at this time, and that karma especially deals with feast and famine (literally, in terms of food, and metaphorically, in terms of finances).

The more ordinary patterns (if you can at all consider them that) are a Kite (opportunity), Hele (stable long term alliances), Rosetta (unstable long term alliances), and a Thor’s Hammer (aka God’s Fist, and an indicator of possible danger or violence).

The kite, combined with the fifth harmonic patterns previously described, tells us that an amazing opportunity is available at this time:

One variant of the kite has Jupiter / Neptune, Mercury, and Pluto in the formation (and includes the current and ongoing Grand Earth Trine in it).  Let’s be clear the opportunity for someone to make quite a bit of money exists here.

The other variant tells us that the Nodes are present (instead of Jupiter / Neptune), and hard work will be necessary and the lure of “easy money” will be strong.  We offer this advice: be careful.  Financial markets are typically “zero sum games” (at least in the short term), and for someone to “win” someone else must “lose.”

The Hele represents both the opportunity (and need) for long term alliances, especially to take advantage of the opportunity:

The Rosetta is a bit more thorny: it represents short-term allegiances (and the potential for betrayal from a long term perspective).  Hele and Rosetta TOGETHER always send this message: “pick your friends carefully!”

Finally, we have the Thor’s Hammer (God’s Fist).  Extreme behavior (including the potential for violence and/or explosions) may be present the week of the perfection of this aspect:

We will not present the “long term analysis” information in this post since that would duplicate the work already done here.

Some of you are still feeling the Saturn Retrograde station (Friday, March 25th) from last week.  This tends to be true if you are heavily invested in a corporate setting or are involved with the financial services industry.

March 2016 (Mars Out)

2016-03 W14: Forecasts for Week 14 of 2016

Week 14 (W14)

Archive of Week 13 (W13)

Sunday March 27th

Moon turns void, and yesterday’s windows close.  If you did not achieve completion, then you must put it on hold or stick to routine activities only (possibly at risk even with those).  Today is not a “bad” day, but you will find it difficult to achieve lasting results today.  Use this as a “day of rest” from yesterday and stick to cleaning up and planning for forward action on another day.

Monday March 28th

Moon enters Sagittarius at 1:47 AM CDT.  Venus perfects a semisextile aspect to Uranus a few hours later, giving the day an “unusual” cast but likely not to strange or disruptive.  Do expect a few minor disruptions but nothing you cannot move past if you focus yourself.

The Square Key in effect since March 16th clears out tomorrow, and you will have learned the lessons you needed to learn in this period or not.  In any case, you will begin to move ahead to a new project (or projects) after the next New Moon (about a week away in April).  You are currently entering a “clearing out” and preparation period, and today is an important part of that.

A series of Rosetta patterns began yesterday, continues today, and will continue until late July.  In fact, Rosettas cover most of the remainder of the year, through December 15th. You  will form alliances now, but they can be temporary and allies can later betray and oppose you.  Choose your friends carefully at this time and disclose as little as you can.

Ceres opposite Hygeia brings issues of food (or prosperity) and health to the forefront.  Some people may revisit their “New Years Resolutions” and (wisely) restart a better version of their plans or improve them into something better.  Others may encounter financial problems over healthcare bills.

Tuesday March 29th

From a lunar point of view, this is a very busy day with Moon conjunct retrograde Saturn (both in Sagittarius) and square Jupiter (Virgo). Mercury (Aries) quincunx Jupiter (Virgo) brings about miscommunication and miscommunication and this feels a bit like Mercury Retrograde.  Mercury Station Retrograde is April 28th, and we will encounter the entering “shadow” beginning April 15th.  This is the first of three Mercury aspects over a three day period.

Juno quadrinovile Ceres means we receive an important lesson, insight or skill involving who we trust and issues of food or prosperity.  Pay attention, this might be an important turning point.

Moon turns void at 8:56 AM CDT.

Wednesday March 30th

Moon remains void until 12:45 PM CDT when it enters Capricorn and slows down certain activities, sometimes requiring a second or third check to make certain things are “right.”

Venus conjoins Chiron in the early hours, and if you have not dealt with issues involving finances, personal values, healthcare, and possibly education, then you will today.  Whatever it is, you cannot ignore it any longer.  Mercury conjoins Uranus today, the second of three in a row, and that combinations FORCES certain issues to the surface.

Use the morning to clear out and plan, and then “bite the bullet” do what must be done during the afternoon and evening.  Take care of it today, finish it today, if you can, because something even larger is coming.

Thursday March 31st

Moon (Capricorn) squares Sun (Aries) and fourth quarter begins.  The next week of cleaning out begins in earnest although some acquisitions can be had since sellers will tend to have an advantage over buyers.  Try to stick with practical purchases and the Moon will favor you.

Mercury conjoins Uranus and brings surprises and possibly powerful insights.  This is a great day for writers and communicators and similar creatives that work with words and messages.  However, transportation “surprises” (problems) can occur also.

Moon trines Jupiter (Virgo) and joins Pluto (Capricorn) in the latter part of the day (which tends to mostly feel benevolent if sometimes a bit too serious).

April 2016 (Mars Out)

Friday April 1st

The early hours are tough for most people who are up at that time, but they can also bring inspirations to writers and other communicators.  Harness the window if you can; it is fleeting.  Moon turns void at 11:39 AM CDT and remains void for most of the reset of the day (until Moon enters 8:37 PM CDT).

Today is “April Fools Day” for those who celebrate such thing, so watch out for Uranian / Plutonian “holiday” surprises.

We note five (5!) Mercury aspects, and noting that Mercury rules tricksters, jesters, thieves, and liars, do be extra careful regarding these kinds of surprises.  But, again, writers and communicators will likely thrive today.  Today is an unusually strong window for writers and communicators (maybe the strongest this year).

Mars Novile Pluto brings important lessons (especially for police and intelligent agents and any similar Martians), and Mercury Novile Neptune brings the same “poets, priests, and politicians” (who, as Sting pointed out, “have words to thank for their positions“).

Saturn BiQuintile Vesta insists that we take a look at our traditions and “why we do them.”  Some things need to stay and others need to go.  By today you should have some idea what those are and should act on them accordingly.

Saturday April 2nd

Days this benevolent are rare and hard to find.  Today is a good day to “take off” not because you need to hide or clean house but just because it is likely to be “fun” for most people.  We need those kinds of days every so often.

If you must work, you will tend to “get things done” and may have some insights.

A late evening glitch (Moon Quincunx Jupiter) may put a pamper on partygoing, but most people can move beyond it and find some kind of alternative fun.

One warning: Chiron opposes Hygeia, and this puncuates that you MUST take care of certain health issues.  Do it.

Week 15 (W15)

Sunday April 3rd

The advantages of Friday and Saturday continue today until the Moon moves void (v/c) at 6:16 PM CDT.  Get done what you can today, and then rest this evening.

Here is a list of New Moons for 2016, and here is a list of Full Moons for 2016.

2016-03-19 Calendar of Aspects

March 2016 (Mars Out)

Week 12 (W12)

In most of the United States, except the Eastern Time Zone (EDT), the Vernal Equinox greets us late tonight.  (EU / UK experience this a half past 5 or half past 6 or later depending upon time zone.)

2016-03-19 Sunout All Aspects (Daily)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Sun biseptiles Saturn, and we should consider resolving some old karma or helping someone less fortunate than ourselves or both.  Sun quintiles Pluto, and we may encounter a very ingenious idea that either (a) helps us with the biseptiles (helping someone else) or (b) gives us a gift in the form of a smart idea that comes from providing said help.  In any case, they go together and they set the stage for the days to come at least until the Summer Solstice (late June) or possibly as long as the Vernal Equinox of next year (late March)…

2016-03 W11: Forecasts for Week 11 of 2016

March 8th is the next lunation, and it is a Solar Eclipse (New Moon).  Many states (including Texas) switch to Daylight Savings Time on the Sunday that follows.

March 2016 (Mars Out)

Week 11 (W11)

Sunday March 6th

After last week, you may want a break but Sun square Saturn will not give you one. Duty calls in some form, maybe business or family, and you must attend to it. Much chatter will emerge, and some of it may be continued disputes form the recent Mercury / Mars aspect (and change of signs). Lessons can be learned and skills can be developed. Pay attention. Get things done. And, when you get a chance, give yourself a break and get some rest anyway.

That would be enough, but Jupiter quincunx Uranus perfects today.  You have felt it building for the last few weeks in the form of a sense of false hopes or miscommunications between issues of bookkeeping or accounting, healthcare (especially healthcare professionals) and issues involving a battle between order and chaos on one hand, and issues of energy, the ability to accomplish tasks, possibly anger or violence, and leadership.  It is all very complex, and you will have to identify how it applies in your particular situation.  But, some time this weekend through the upcoming eclipse you will likely see things “come to a head” in some way.  Change is afoot, and “things” will be different after Tuesday.

Monday March 7th

Mercury semisquares Uranus and any angry words we have spoken in the last few days resurface and may be amplified.  For some people, they will be broadcast and re-broadcast.  Be careful what you say.  Vesta (traditions and “doing things the way we have always done them” is void until 6:50 PM CST and this further contributes to “things” going awry and unintended consequences.  You may have some good ideas (Mars quintile Jupiter), but consider writing them down and saving them for another day.  A Solar Eclipse perfects tomrrow and the Moon is very “old.”  That makes this a better time to “clean house” (literally or figuratively) and reflect rather than take action on new projects.

Tuesday March 8th

Today is the day of the Solar Eclipse, a very special type of New Moon.  Sun and Moon join together and each oppose Jupiter (with each individual opposition perfecting at slightly different times on this same day in most time zones).  Saturn (Sagittarius) squares this combination to form a T-Square.  Virgo / Pisces (and Sagittarius) issues are at the forefront as we begin a new cycle in more than one way.  The New Moon governs the 28 day lunar cycle, but the messages of the eclipse apply at least until the other eclipses later this year.  Ceres (prosperity in general and food in particular) BiQuintiles Black Moon Lilith (a point governing taboo issues in general and taboo sexual practices in particular).  This is a difficult aspect to interpret, and we suggest you identify how it applies in your individual situation.  Pallas BiQuintiles the North Node (another point, associated with karma), and we may have some important ideas about how to handle difficult “karmic” situations in our life.

Wednesday March 9th

Whether perfection of the eclipse fell in on yesterday in your time zone or on today, you will still “feel” it.  As we move further past the eclipse, we can start thinking about taking action on some of the ideas that we have noted on previous days.

BUT, the Moon remains v/c (void of course) from yesterday until 1:39 PM CST. That means we have to wait until some time after 1:39 PM CST to make our desired launch today. Keep in mind that the further you can move away from a “sign change boundary” the better (unless you have Venus or Jupiter near the cusp of Aries). That means later in the day as much as possible.

With the North Node semisextile Black Moon Lilith (both points in space, so to some degree this reflects the Earth’s alignment at this time), we have taboo topics (especially taboo sexual topics) bubbling to the surface and may face some “hard karma” in dealing with them. Today is anything but ordinary for many (if not most) people. Venus Novile Pluto says we can learn a lesson here (both can, and do, deal with Love (Venus) and Sex (Pluto)). Venus is also TriSeptile the North Node, and this brings the idea that doing a totally selfless (best if anonymous, also) act to help someone else might relieve at least a little of our “hard karma.”

Thursday March 10th

This is a busy day with a number of higher order aspects perfecting.  We note Sun conjunct Chiron today.  This is an annual aspect that brings health, education, mentoring, and “the Wounded Healer” to the forefront.  Venus quadrinovile Jupiter tells us that we can learn an important lesson or skill that will serve us well in the future.  Keep in mind that this might seem like something trivial because Quadrinoviles often bring us skills that are useful in thefuture (but not yet currently).  Mercury novile Uranus may bring us one or more additional lessons.  Venus quintile Saturn may also bring us a smart, but practical, idea.  Septiles suggest that we help someone less fortunate than ourselves.

Friday March 11th

Today you may feel an urgent need to get things done, but that may not go so well unless you are working writing poetry or song lyrics, doing a photoshoot, or making a video or movie. Scammers and thieves will tend to be more active today, so make certain you do not believe anything a stranger says or buy what they try to sell you. Even family members may be suspect. Stick to the poetry or photography.

Saturday March 12th

Venus enters Pisces today.  This is great for creatives, one of the best possible situations, but not so good for finances.  Similar to yesterday (except that it is with us for a few weeks), this empowers scammers.  Put off major purchases for a few weeks if at all possible.  Certainly avoid speculative endeavors.  As mentioned before, the best use of these few weeks is in developing your abilities with writing poetry or lyrics, photography, or videography.  Other arts may flourish also, but the ones explicitly mentioned work best.

Week 12 Forecasts

Thursday March 3rd 2016 (and a few days prior)

Moon moves into Capricorn at 4:01 AM CST, and a remarkably busy day begins.  Those of you at work or in traffic at 6:03 AM CST (within an hour of that time) have a good chance of experiencing a glitch of some kind; this might carry through for the remainder of the day.  But this day contains opportunities to learn and develop an important set of skills, and an opportunity to make amends for past wrongs may exist.  Mercury novile Pluto brings one important set of lessons, and Venus binovile Mars brings another.

We think today could be an important turning point for some people (especially, but not limited to, Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn).

Moon in Capricorn puts on the brakes, and we hope you fully accomplished your objective, or at least made a milestone, yesterday.  Moon in Capricorn in the early morning hours (Western Hemisphere) brings a “two steps forward and one step backward” kind of energy to the day.  Venus (Aquarius) forms a quincunx (false hopes and miscommunications to Jupiter (Virgo).

We tend to mis-step or overlook important points, and we can make a bad decision about finances or taxes today.  Probably NOT the day to consult with a physician or accountant, but, if you do, you might hear something you do not want to hear.  Details are important, so pay attention, and please do realize that your traditions and habits (Vesta) may not serve you as well today as you might hope.  But Vesta does form a BiQuintile with the North Node (a point that means “karma”); you may have an important insight in how to work through old karma.  And, again, this is a chance to learn important lessons and skills.

Previous days this week:

March 2016 (Mars Out)

Week 10 (W10)

Tuesday March 1st

We have a day of lunar squares.  Focus your annoyance into solving problems if you can.  Venus forms a semi-sextile to Pluto, and we find that we either have (mild) power struggles with our romantic partner or we have some insight into matters involing finance, taxes, or police / intelligence agencies.  Ceres (prosperity) forms a Quadrinovile to Astraea (law and legal systems), and we as individuals MIGHT have an opportunity to triumph over the oppresion of a government agency today.

Wednesday March 2nd

This is a busy day in terms of lunar aspects, and they tend to favor fire and air signs.  Everyone will be busy, and for some of you (especially fire (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) and air (Libra, Aquarius, Gemini)) will be especially busy.

Venus (Aquarius) sextiles Uranus (Aries), and some people engage in kinky sex or at least “unusual” romantic relationships.  (If you have been contemplating such a thing, this is your day to “make it happen.”)  This is tainted a bit as Juno (trust and loyalty) stations retrograde today. <click here to read more>

Wednesday March 2nd 2016

A Square Key has been present since February 20th and lasts until March 14th.  A Double Yod Key (DYK) begins today at 4:16 PM CST and lasts through Friday, March 4th at 9:12 PM CST.  The Double Yod Key brings us a period of several (at least two, possibly many more) important decisions, and the Square Key is a period of important (possibly life changing) “lessons.”  Friday afternoon is particularly important as a Focused Yod dominates the sky from 3:32 PM CST until 9:05 PM CST.  This period on Friday is an important time when we can “get things done.”

Wednesday, in particular, is a busy day in terms of lunar aspects, and these lunar aspects tend to favor fire and air signs.  Everyone will be busy, and for some of you (especially fire (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) and air (Libra, Aquarius, Gemini)) will be especially busy.

Venus (Aquarius) sextiles Uranus (Aries), and some people engage in kinky sex or at least “unusual” romantic relationships.  (If you have been contemplating such a thing, this is your day to “make it happen.”)

This is tainted a bit as Juno (trust and loyalty) stations retrograde today.  Juno is associated, also, with female roles, notably, wife, mother, sister, and daughter; of these, it is especially associated with the wife of the philandering husband (Jupiter).  In any situation, trust issues will come to the forefront today, and you may need to eject someone (maybe even a group) from your life.

Hygeia and Uranus are quadrinovile.  Quadrinovile is associated with powerful insights (sometimes “far out” metaphysical aspects) that open the door to new skills and technologies that completely alter how “things are done.”  Sometimes these are called “disruptive technologies.”  In this case, on one side, we have the “health and healthcare” issues of Hygeia and on the other we have “computers, internet, electronics, social workers, and radical innovations” from Uranus.  We would not at all be surprised to see some major shift in the healthcare system on this date.

We note that Venus (Aquarius) sextile Uranus (Aries) AMPLIFIES the Hygeia / Uranus aspect, and Aquarius is the home for Uranus.  Both Aquarius and Uranus are the home of all issues involving “computers, internet, electronics, social workers, and radical innovations.”  In a word, it is the “future.”  Venus is about art and love and pretty farms, but it is also finances (particularly the financial markets) and the body.

This a GREAT day to resurrect that “New Years Resolution” to improve your health but now in a more practical version that actually works.  And, if you already have a version that works you can now expand it (carefully) in some creative and innovative way.

Do keep in mind that much of this “turns off” on Thursday and the windows close.  If you are to get something done, do it today if you can.  Friday, you will get another shot at your single most important issue.

Saturday February 20th 2016 Week 08 (W08)

Saturday February 20th

This is an energetic Saturday, and you can “get things done.”  And, you will feel an urge to do just that.  Issues involving health, education, finances, and taxes come to the forefront.  For some people these will be issues with the police or intelligence agencies.  Take advantage of your sense of urgency and complete what you can.

Moon (Leo) opposes Mercury, Venus (Aquarius) followed by a quincunx to Neptune (Pisces) and a trine to Saturn (Sagittarius).  Of all the days this week, this might be the best one for “getting things done,” and oddly it favors fire and air signs (though the Sun is in Pisces and applying, ultimately, to Neptune and Chiron).  If we zoom out and look at Saturday and Sunday together, we could argue that a (very loose) Fire Grand Trine is present.

Venus (Aquarius) is semi-square Chiron (Pisces), and Sun (Pisces) is semi-square Pluto (Capricorn).  This creates quite a push to “get things done,” and issues of healthcare (or education) and finances (Capricorn) are part of the mix.  Mercury (Aquarius) semi-sextiles Neptune (Pisces).  Fire and air signs may be favored, but Pisces and Capricorn clearly have a voice today.  And Mercury / Neptune tells us that (some) people will tend to wax poetic (if not grandiose).  No “Mars Out” higher order aspects are in play, so look to the earlier aspects this week as well as the Vesta Quadrinovile Juno aspect tomorrow (a skill involving exploring “how we have always done it” and trust & fidelity issues).

Tomorrow remains very similar, and these two days should be considered together for some important project.  (Possibly a home improvement project, but certainly an important one.)

Friday February 19th 2016

Friday February 19th

Friday COULD be considered to be far more benevolent EXCEPT for the Moon in Cancer void that starts at 8:36 AM CST with Moon trine Mars (a great morning for exercise but maybe not so good for personal relationships) and ends at 8:18 PM CST with the Moon’s entry into Leo.

Friday is the first full day of the Sun in Pisces.  That this would be a day almost entirely consumed by a void of course moon is not surprising.  In many ways, the ultimate lunar void is the Moon v/c in Pisces (a void moon in the final sign of the zodiac is entirely about centering oneself and focusing primarily, if not entirely, on tasks that clear away the old to make room for the new).

Mars is biquintile Uranus, and some people will have truly GREAT ideas emerge, particularly involving the military (and possibly the police).  You may not be able to ACT on these ideas effectively, but make notes of your ideas for later review.  You may add necessary “tuning” later when you prepare to take action later.  This is a great day for creatives as long as they realize that they may need to tune the work later.

Chiron is quincunx Black Moon Lilith (a point in space rather than an actual object) and issues of sex and seduction come into conflict with healthcare or education.  Do not be surprised if scandals rise to the surface.  Even if that is not true, some of us will need to face our thoughts about what is “taboo” in sexuality and how we might transform or heal such situations.

Vesta in quincunx the North Node (another point in space), and we find traditions in conflict with applying hard work to developing ourselves (and eliminating the “karma” of old repeating patterns).  This makes this a GREAT day to leave behind “bad habits” or start a new life free of addictions.  If it applies to you: kick the habit!

You will once again have a window where you can accomplish something, perhaps something very important to your own personal development, but it will almost certainly be subject to some kind of re-do later.  (This could be in the next few days or it might be during the next Mercury Retrograde.)  Sometimes, though, we need to push through in a void knowing that we may have to revisit it lately or “learn a lesson” in terms of what does not work (providing a foundation for, later, doing what does work).

Thursday February 18th 2016

Thursday February 18th

As you know from yesterdays interpretations, the Sun is void.  If you need to “wrap things up,” particularly Aquarian type things (computers, internet, social groups, and so forth), then do so, but do know that a “re-do” may be in the works.  Aquarian anything tends to bring surprises, so you may never “see” the basis of this re-do.  When it does arrive, it will force a shift in your consciousness (sometimes a painful one for earth signs such as Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo).

Mercury sesquiquadrate Jupiter does mean that you have the energy to push forward, and in some cases you should do so even knowing that a re-do might be needed.  Chiron is novile Pallas, so we learn a powerful skill involving the question of how to get things done (Pallas, the warrior goddes of strategy) and healthcare or education (or both).

Today is very Mercurial.  Mercury septile Saturn (attention to detail and hard work can help us release some “Karma” by helping others), Mercury undecile Neptune (another “helping others” aspect), Mercury quintile Uranus (brilliant ideas, especially regarding issues involving communications and transportation; very good for writers and speakers), and Mercury sesquiquadrate Jupiter (a sort of amplifier of anything, and it is usually benevolent); all four of these aspects are present today.  Again, today is Mercurial.  (That also means WATCH YOUR TEMPER.  And, given Mr. Trump’s Mercurial nature (he is a solar Gemini), we would not be surprised to hear an important announcement from him on this date.)

Arguably we have a (VERY loose) yod, Moon to Mercury / Saturn, and you may have to make a significant decision during the Sun void period.  Later, after the Yod (and decision), Moon (Cancer) forms a T-Square with Uranus (Aries) and Pluto (Capricorn).  This pushes us to act, even though it may be against our better judgment during the Solar void.  In a sense, this is very much a “free will” time in which you will be completely responsible for the consequences of your decisions and following actions.

Yesterday:

Wednesday February 17th

This is another day where we feel an urgent push to “get things done.”  Venus and Mercury have both entered Aquarius, and Mercury semi-squares Chiron while Venus semi-squares Saturn.

Moon (Gemini) trines Sun (Aquarius) and goes void at 10:37 AM CST.  These are typically benevolent aspects (Moon/Sun trines) but something may require a re-do some time after the Moon enters Cancer at 1:24 PM CST.  Quincunxes soon follow (Moon to Mercury, Venus), and achievement of goals becomes even more difficult than during the void in the morning.  This is a good time to slip out of the office and go shopping for minor office supplies if you are compelled to “do something” this afternoon.

The Sun will soon move to Pisces (February 18th @ 11:33 PM CST), so some projects may have to wait until after that (February 19th or later).  This is not a “bad” day, but at times “things” might be “irritating.”  A subtle high order aspect between Vesta and Chiron may bring into questions issues about traditions (“how we have always done it”) and healthcare or education (or both).  A similar high order aspect between Pallas and Astraea may bring legal issues to the surface.

Tuesday February 9th (W07)

We are still feeling the power of yesterday’s New Moon in Aquarius (and start of the Chinese New Year, the year of the Yang Fire Monkey).  Today is dominated by Mars Trine Chiron and the early morning entry of the Moon into Pisces.  Mars Trine Chiron is all about healing issues, and so can be the Moon in Pisces.  With Moon in Pisces, “healing” can take the form of creativity (poetry, lyrics, photography, video) or anonymously helping others less fortunate than ourselves without any thought about some later benefit to ourselves.

Mercury forms a novile to Saturn, and we may learn an important skill involving details or paperwork.  Vesta (traditions) is quite active: (1) Chiron semisextile Vesta; (2) Mars quincunx Vesta; and (3) Vesta triseptile the North Node.  We have to address tradition and “doing things the way we have always done them,” and we continue to receive indications that some of those traditions are due for a makeover if not outright radical change.

February 1st 2016 (W06)

A glance at the Mystic Rectangles monthy “Mars Out” forecast shows several septile (triseptile) aspects of outer planets.  These aspects are subtle, but they mark this as a day of karma in which we best help ourselves by anonymously helping someone less fortunate than ourselves without expecting anything in return.

Pluto / Vesta are square, and we find a conflict between “doing things the way we have always done them” and the true sources of power present in power structures such as the police and intelligence agencies.  For some people, this is a time of very kinky sex (if you are into that kind of thing).  For anyone who is a “sex worker”: please be extra careful at this time.

Please keep in mind that we are still processing, and clearing out, the energy of the T-Square perfections of the past weekend (Friday / Sunday).

Some of what we said Sunday bears repeating here:

For some people, this is the kind of Sunday where, on Monday, you pretend to leave for work but go somewhere entirely different and hide for a day or week or year. (Maybe you “go out for cigarettes and never come back,” as was popular in the 1950’s and 1960’s.) Do keep in mind that “this too shall pass,” and “things” will become different. (Not “better” or “worse” but “different.”) But, again, this will be a critically important turning point for some people who choose to move into new circumstances.

While we are technically still in the “retrograde shadow,” in many ways moving past this final aspect of the sequence ends this particular sequence of dramas and opens the door for us to (finally!) move in new directions. But, in January of 2017 (when Mercury conunct Pluto perfects again), we may want to revisit our thoughts, notes, and decisions at this time.

Mars (in Scorpio) is septile the North Node, and this harkens to those willing to do the work to transform their lives, starting today.  I am especially speaking to anyone in a criminal occupation or group who is considering doing something like “Witness Relocation.”  Do it today, and never look back.  It will not be easy, but one day you will be grateful to yourself that you did.

For the rest of us, consider what big leap you need to make today or at the time of the New Moon (a week from today).  That NM has a Double Yod Key (DYK), and everyone will face a GROUP of important decisions at that time.  (For more about 2016 New Moons, click here.)

We cannot say it better about today and the rest of this week:  “Waning SCORPIO MOON today and tomorrow is excellent for purging and clearing anyway…”  (Source: Melanies Astro News; see, also: Melanies Astro News)

Finally, we note that the upcoming Aquarius New Moon on February 8th marks the beginning of the Chinese New Year and the beginning of the related festivities. (See, also: this article from the Telegraph.)

Saturday January 30th 2016

Saturday feels like the “pause before the storm,” or, more likely, “the eye of the hurricane.”  “Things” may calm down some, but this Moon is void and this day is bracketed by the Mercury conjunct Pluto aspect of Friday and the Mercury square Uranus aspect of Sunday.  Can you “get things done”?  Maybe.  But you should avoid major purchases or disputes or both, and we favor this day for housecleaning and taking care of routine matters.  We do think some people can prosper on this date, particularly financial or tax auditors looking for financial misdeeds.  (But, do not be surprised if the evidence “disappears.”)

Venus Sextile Neptune lends a “feel good” quality to the day, and we may be overoptimistic and believe in people, places, and situations that will not last.

Saturn perfects a particularly exotic higher order Novile aspect to the node, and hidden in all of this “feel good” is a powerful opportunity that is real but requires more hard work than most people are willing to do.  If you do decide to tackle this challenge, keep in mind you will work through some serious karma for months and perhaps a few years.  It will be tough, but if you stick with it through completion you will learn important lessons (or insights or both) that you will consider to be important (in hindsight).

We would stop there, but more remains to be said.  First, here is a chart for perfection of the aspect, filtered for current transiting Saturn aspects:

2016-01-30 Saturn Aspects

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This is a chart where many people, maybe most people, ask: “So what?”  The answer is this: a very subtle event will likely occur today that will set the stage for more important events that are coming soon.  This is the kind of thing that you can easily overlook, maybe something someone mutters or maybe what they do not say.  Pay attention, and you will see it.

And, here is where it is going: (1) Saturn recently trined Vesta (forcing us to examine traditions and “how we have always done it”) on January 24th; (take a hard look on what you were doing January 23-25th, the time where Mercury went direct); (2) a period of unrest related to this will commence on or about June 25th of this year and continue until on or about September 8th; strcutural changes in power structures will happen; (3) Saturn will trine Uranus later this year and SOME power structures (police, intelligence agencies, banks, financial markets) will feel (another) shakeup (maybe similar to the financial markets in the first week of this year).  AND, this will be BIG.  The period for this starts November 4th and continues until perfection on December 24th.

Make notes about today.  (Pay attention, note the subtle, and you can learn an important lesson.)  It will make more sense later.  As some have said, “more will be revealed.”

Thursday January 28th 2016

Thursday is a curious day in which we begin to feel a shift or see a turning of the tides.  Lunar aspects are nearly absent.  Major aspects are totally absent.  Higher order aspects tend to be influential and set the stage for a very “energetic” weekend.  The only conventional aspect is Sun semisextile Neptune, ordinarily a routine (annual) mild aspect that is typically overlooked.  You will feel it today, and it will tell you to both look to the future and to think of those less fortunate than yourself.  For some people, this is a good day to write a will or engage in similar estate planning.  Thinking of a future without yourself, and how your life can benefit those left behind, is a good use of this day.

Venus quintile Chiron confirms this.  Quintiles are about innovation, and Chiron is about teaching and healing and especially healing by means of teacher.  Mentor relationships are important today, and that dovetails well with the Sun semisextile Neptune aspect.

Sun is novile Chiron, and that means we can learn an important lesson or skill as we reach out to help others.  Venus is biseptile Jupiter, again emphasizing a “karmic” feel to all of this.  A late night Venus square brings a rough spot, but it will pass as we move into the ongoing powerful issues to be addressed this weekend.

Wednesday January 27th 2016

Wednesday is similar to Tuesday: a very lunar day with the Moon in Virgo.  The morning starts as a straightforward workday followed by a glitch or two here or there.  Once past these we have smooth sailing into the evening.  An opportunity may come to you late Wednesday afternoon; seize it.  To be sure, it will require work, and it may not be entirely straightforward.  It will not be a HUGE opporunity but something shorter term.  Still, it is likely to be worthy of pursuit.  Moon turns v/c at 6:11 PM CST, so fully seize the opportunity before then (and lock it in) or forgo it altogether and spend the evening cleaning house.

An early morning BiSeptile between Mars and Uranus brings a bit of karma in odd interactions with others.  We may have anger and explosive reactions, but invariably (in most cases) this brings more harm than good.  Channeling that some energy / emotions into solutions rather than outbursts is more helpful, but not everyone is capable of that.

After the Moon moves v/c 6:10 PM CST, Sun perfects a sesquiquadrate to Jupiter.  We feel a sense of urgency, but our actions may not produce the results we expect if any at all.  A re-do will likely be later tomorrow or at some later point.  A quiet evening of meditation and planning is a better use of your time.

January 26th 2016

Tuesday is a very lunar day, and Moon is in Virgo.  Given this is the day after Mercury Direct Station, the Virgo emphasis on details and double checking details is appropriate.  Go slow, and do not be surprised if you receive some kind of surprise today.

Two septiles dominate the day, aside from lunar aspects, and we feel a taste of karma or at least encounter a situation where we can help someone less fortunate than ourselves.  Do it anonymously and expect nothing in return.  Moon opposite Neptune confirms this.  (If you do it with “strings attached,” then chances are good that you will be scammed.  Do not go down that road.)  For some people, this could be a good day for developing poetry, lyrics, photography, or video.  Most most of the rest of us, this is a work day and we can gain much by paying attention to details and accomplishing what needs to be done.

Monday January 25th 2016

Monday, Mercury moves Direct.  This dominates the day.  Moon remains v/c from yesterday until 9:46 PM CST.  This is a difficult day to get things done for most people.  Glitches and re-do’s predominated.  If you can take the day off and rest and relax that is a great idea.  If not, proceed carefully and double check everything.

Outside of Mercury Rx and Moon v/c (which nearly consumes us entirely), the day has a number of subtle aspects that are difficult to interpret.  If you are a student of astrology this is THE day for you to study the “Undecile” aspect because it occurs in FOUR variations today.  Two of those involve the North Node (aka “Karma”; the Vedic astrologers call this “Rahu” and accord it a strong degree of “respect” for its ability to “clear away” what is no longer needed), and Sun / Saturn  in a Septile also emphasizes Karma.  Sun Quintile Uranus can bring us smart, maybe brilliant, ideas, but almost certainly this is not the day to put them into action.  Save that for at least a few days, better yet after the next New Moon.

We find particularly interesting that the first two episodes of the X-Files reboot straddle the Mercury Direct Station.  Chris Carter has gone on record claiming that they took a “13 year commercial break.”  That seems both true and appropriate.

Critics inevitably dislike changes to successful formulas, but we agree the that “updates” to match current times are nothing less than essential.  We find it particularly interesting that important elements of the reboot parallel the Internet world and our collective distrust of “mainstream liberal media.”  We hope the miniseries fares well, at least well enough that we see another set of episodes next year.

Aliens or not, Mulder and Sculley provide a metaphorical voice to our collective distrust of the government in a medium that is dominated by the likes of “NCIS” (ugh!) and “Blue Bloods” (ugh!).  Except possibly for “The Good Wife,” Mulder and Sculley provide the only such voice.

Mars Quincunx Uranus 2015-10-23 (Focused Yod)

Mars Quincunx Uranus 2015-10-23 (Focused Yod)

This is the last of a series of aspects that perfect on Friday, October 23rd in the United States.  (In EU/UK this perfects early on Saturday before but near sunrise when many people are still asleep.)

The Hele and Thor’s Hammer are still in effect with the perfection of this outer planet aspect (meaning we have been feeling its effect all week and maybe for the last two or three weeks), but at perfection a Focused Yod also comes into play with the Moon in Pisces at the Apex opposing Venus in Virgo.  That means that “things come to a head” by the end of Friday (in the U.S., early AM in UK/EU), and a decision must be made and acted upon.

The “decision” in this Focused Yod is between Astraea (law, legal, legal system) and Juno (trust and betrayal).  For some people, the question will be “do I file suit” or “do I file for divorce” or something similar.

Here is the chart, filtered for the Focused Yod:

2015-10-23 Mars Quincunx Uranus

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Keep in mind a few things:

  • Mars / Uranus aspects tend to be violent and sometimes produce explosions (we might see a terrible event on Thursday / Friday / Saturday)
  • This is an outer planet (generational planet) aspect and rules more than just this single day.  At a minimum, it influences the week before and the week after perfection
  • This is a Quincunx.  These key issues cannot be fully resolved at this time.  (That requires an opposition or conjunction, typically.)

We may see pivotal events in Syria on (or near) this day.
