Full Moon February 2017 (Lunar Eclipse: Leo Moon + Aquarius Sun)

Headline: In addition to being a Full Moon and Eclipse with a comet (!), this FM has a complex set of patterns, some relatively rare, that bring important opportunities that can be realized if you make the right decisions and form the right alliances.  Additionally, a thief is lurking (might be a time waster or maybe an ACTUAL thief), so be careful!

A few months have past since our last “real” astrology post (other than something I started on Lost Dudeist involving an old cold case murder), and we are overdue to put some of our own work up.  This FM is interesting, with the Moon near the important fixed star of Regulus (i.e. the “Regulator” and associated with kings and royalty and sometimes downfalls) as well as a number of patterns.  We will focus mainly on the charts, as we have done the past few years, with only minimal commentary (encouraging our readers, instead, to comment).  Names for this moon abound.  “Snow Moon” is most popular, but we like “Werewolf Moon” best!  🙂

Basic Chart, Inner Planets, and Outer Planets

First, we have a basic chart of the FM using tight orbs (eliminating all but the strongest aspects) and a new custom layout that we designed today:

lunareclipse-2017-02-10-11th-tightorbs

The aspect grid and mid-point trees here focus specifically on the strongest and most influential aspects.  Others have analyzed this FM extensively, and I really have little new to offer except my (usual) analysis of patterns and some discussion of mid-points as well as various items that catch my eye (though they have been mentioned by others).

In addition to the proximity of the Moon to Regulus (bringing up issues of power and control as well as risk of loss related to “revenge”), we note that the moon is apply to an (out of sign) conjunction to the North Node in Virgo.  This is important for any of several reasons (such as the Nodes being the critical ingredient in all eclipses) but we note that when that aspect perfects (Moon conjunct North Node in Virgo) a bit later that a powerful earth trine will be activated (making it possible to turn opportunities seized with the FM into money or material goods or benefits).

We present next the same chart (all of these are the same), but in a different format and filtered for inner planets (and Mars).  This version of the chart (and these aspects) speak to individual issues more than collective issues and, depending on our individual natal charts (or maybe those close to us) how this FM will affect us in a very direct way:

lunareclipse-2017-02-10-inners

If you are paying attention (we hope you are if you are reading this), then you will note two things.  The first, and most compelling, is that Mars forms a triangular relationship (similar to a T-Square, but (as far as I know) an as yet unnamed pattern) with Moon / Sun in opposition (that DEFINES a Full Moon!) and Mars forming a sesquiquadrate (135 degrees) to Moon and a semi-square (45 degrees) to the Sun.  Both aspects tend to be “irritating,” Mars is all about action (often physical) and can be prone to violence, and this set of aspects will spur you to “get things done” *IF* you can avoid becoming mired in conflicts.

The second aspect is more subtle, with Mercury sextile Venus.  Really, the aspect is not the issue.  The issue is that Mercury is “peregrine” (an horary term, and one of the few of those we use from time to time), and that makes Mercury a “thief” in this chart.  Incessant chatter and nuisance events related to transportation and communication can steal your opportunity from you.  Do not let that happen!

Here is the same chart, but filtered for the outers including Chiron, Major Asteroids (Pallas, Ceres, Vesta, and Juno), the additional two we always use (Hygeia, healthcare, and Astraea, law) along with the additions of Sedna, Selena, and Eris.  We also have the calculated point Black Moon (Lilith).

lunareclipse-2017-02-10-outers

The outers tend to affect us collectively, and as individuals we look to them to see how we “fit in” with the larger groups around us as well as what the larger collective is “working through.”  The larger T-Square (Uranus (and Eris, the troublemaker), Vesta, and Jupiter) is part of a looser Grand Cross (adding in Pluto in Capricorn).  The Uranus / Pluto squares since 2012 (arguably 2011) have been discussed extensively in their role in the financial meltdown of 2008 (the year Pluto (death and major transformation) entered Capricorn (banking and finance and large corporations)) through the “Arab Spring” and other Middle Eastern wars and violence up to, and including, the current events in the Middle East as well as the political climate here in the United States.

T-Square / Grand Cross

Beyond this summary, we will not duplicate those discussion except to note that Jupiter (Libra) ALWAYS acts as an “amplifier” of anything he touches, and Vesta brings in issues of traditions (and loyalty, probably especially military traditions if we followed our hunch on this).  Grand crosses bring SOME things to a HALT and launch other things into rapid motion.  This is another “irritating” pattern (similar to the Sun / Moon / Mars pattern previously discussed), but it is huge and affects many people and will extend particularly long after the eclipse (at least 18 months if we were to guess but maybe further).  Expect the fights we have been having to escalate, particularly if they involve traditions (and anyone who “serves,” i.e. military, police, nurses, and similar).

Huber Learning Triangle

We add that in addition to the T-Square / Grand Cross, a “Huber Learning Triangle” is present that includes Vesta (traditions and service), Chiron (education, healthcare, and mentors) and Jupiter (law, higher education, sometimes health, and foreign travel / ambassadors; higher thought and sometime philanderers).  Composed of a trine (easy and straightforward), a quincunx (a confusing and messy misunderstanding) and a square (an avoidable and irritating demand for action), this outer planet / asteroid Huber affects all of us and says that everyone (liberal, conservative, democrat, republican, libertarian, and “other”) is partially right (the trine), partially out of touch with reality (the quincunx) and feeling compelled to “do something about it” (the square).  This kind of pattern may also apply in other areas of your life.

Resolutions require that the misunderstandings be addressed if they can be.  (We think this involves people who serve (military & police & firefighters & nurses & similar), their education & healthcare benefits, and a real need for resolution (maybe legal and maybe in some other Jupiter area).

Please do note that both of these major patterns are interlaced and contain Jupiter / Vesta on one of their legs.  (Making “people who serve” and the legal system almost a certainty.)

With that, we examine the  patterns in play, which are powerful and interesting (and some tend to be rare).  Since they are numerous, we will list them first (in order of consideration):

  • Mystic Rectangle
  • Kites (Kite Key) and associated Grand Trines
  • Heles (Hele Key)
  • Rosetta
  • Yods

Mystic Rectangle, Kites, and Grand Trines

These three sets of patterns should be considered together Kites are considered rare, and Mystic Rectangles even more so.  Sometimes I see a fifth point in the Mystic Rectangle pattern which creates an interlaced pair of kites that I call a “Kite Key” (taking the name from “Double Yod Key” and similar patterns).  The Mystic Rectangle shows up in interesting places and people.  For example, Hillary Clinton’s natal chart has one and it is rather pronounced.  Kites always contain at least one Grand Trine, and several are present here (particularly a Fire Grand Trine composed of Uranus (Aries), Moon (Leo), and Saturn (Sagittarius)).  As we mentioned earlier, after the Moon moves into Virgo it will form (amplify, really) an Earth Grand Trine when it perfects the conjunction to the North Node.

Here is the same chart, but filtered for the Mystic Rectangle:

lunareclipse-2017-02-10-mysticrectangle

Moon, Jupiter, Uranus, and the Sun form this MR, and this is a “lotto ticket winner” pattern.  You may not win the “actual” lotto, but a huge opportunity is facing you (if you can avoid Mercury the thief, mentioned earlier).  (Do keep in mind that, with some people, Mercury might be an ACTUAL thief.  I have actually seen that happen when I saw a cash box stolen from a charity dance by a “snatch and grab” thief when Moon in Gemini (Mercury’s home) became angular.  As a young budding astrologer, this was an AMAZING event to witness!  The money was never recovered….)  An opportunity faces you, no doubt, but do act with SOME prudence!

Kites

The kite key (interlaced kites) formed from the MR confirm this:

lunareclipse-2017-02-10-kitekey

We will note that the three bodies of Hygeia (health and healthcare), Saturn (aging, bones, test, trials, and tribulations) and Astraea (law, lawyers, judges, and the legal system) form the apex (“additional planet”) in this kite key.  So, your opportunity may involve either health / healthcare or aging or bones or the law / legal system in some way.  (All three could be involved, as in an elderly person who is injured by some Mercurial peregrine young person and from the damage to their health a lawsuit and maybe criminal action results.  Bad news for the person who cause the harm in their fit of Sun / Moon / Mars temper.  Do not be the person with the temper!  You are smart enough to read this, so you should know better!)

Grand Trines

Here is the same chart, but filtered to reveal the Grand Trines:

lunareclipse-2017-02-10-grandtrines

To some degree, these patterns of opportunity are about personal decisions that may or may not directly involve others.

Hele (Key), Rosetta, and Yods: Issues of Allegiance and Decisions

In contrast to the previous group of patterns, the Hele / Rosetta / Yod group in this eclipse necessarily involve others (except MAYBE the Yods).  We also have interlaced Hele patterns (two) which we call a “Hele Key” and these emphasize the importance of forming stable long term alliances.  The Rosetta, on the other hand, is about short term alliances and can lead later to treachery and betrayal.  “Picking the right friends” is everything at this moment, and the pair of Yods (not quite a “double yod key” but VERY similar to that pattern) are about (a minimum of) two decisions involving alliances, friends, non-friends (enemies?), decisions, and what action to take (or avoid).

Hele Key

We present, first, the same Eclipse chart, filtered for the Hele pattern (and revealing the Hele key):

lunareclipse-2017-02-10-helekey

The “common leg” in these two interlaced Hele patterns (aka the “Hele Key”) is a Vesta / Chiron trine.  A stable relationship between Vesta in Cancer (traditions and service in the water sign associated with families and children and oceans and family outings at the beach) and Chiron (mentors, education, healthcare, and attempting to heal the deep wound that never seems to quite heal fully).  This might be a good weekend to NOT take your children (Cancerian) to any place where they could drown (a Chironic wound that could never be healed).  For others, the issues are about, on one hand, service and family, and, on the other hand, dealing with painful issues that may never resolved.  If you are lucky, this could be a healthcare issue that can be resolved (for now) or an education issue (that can be completed and finished).  In any case, it is really all about your alliances and the friends you pick.

If we had to make a recommendation (and that is risky!), we would recommend males tend to opt for “college professor” (or lawyer) type friends (or maybe military) and females opt for someone Saturnine (could be an older adult or some other “authority figure”).

Rosetta

Every garden must have a snake, no doubt.  In this garden, or chart, the Rosetta is the set of relationships that might can “get things done” rather quickly, but which may turn on you in some form of treachery at some later point.

Here is the chart:

lunareclipse-2017-02-10-rosetta

Curiously, the same Vesta / Chiron trine forms the backbone of this Rosetta.

Yods: Decisions

This chart contains a pair of Yods, and in astrology a pair almost always means “two or more.”  You can also think of it as “at least two” major decisions.  Here is the chart:

lunareclipse-2017-02-10-yods

One decision involves “fate” (North Node) or “hard work” (OR BOTH) and a choice between Venus (love, beauty, harmony, and maybe money & finances; also: this looks like Venus AND Mars!) and Mercury (communications, transportation, and the aforementioned thief).  Each has their advantage, and as an astrologer it is my duty to tell you that each path has its advantages and disadvantages, but we lean toward the Venus path over the Mercury path in this case.  (Why?  Because Mercury is peregrine, or a thief, here.  If you are a criminal, then maybe that is your path, but not for the rest of us.)

The other decision involves a Chironic issue (education, healthcare, or mentor(s)) and a choice between a very strong Leo Moon (likely a strong female) and Libran (but Retrograde) Jupiter.  That is a tougher choice, but we ever so slightly favor the Leo Moon.  (Why?  It is VERY strong in this eclipse, AND Jupiter is retrograde).  In the end, only you can decide.

Our most popular reblogs for this FM (so far):

Taking a peek at what the search engines (currently) like, we have these pages also:

This last one mentions “the Cold Moon, Ice Moon, and Quickening Moon,” but we still like the “Werewolf Moon” the best!

That is it for our forecast, but we are going to include some maps this time.  (We have not done that since 2015.)  No commentary for the maps; you are own your own in your analysis of them using what we have given you from the charts.  Also, for those interested in “Cosmobiology” and midpoint analysis, we are including midpoint trees and modulus sort strips.

Solar Eclipse of September 1st 2016

Solar Eclipse of September 1st 2016

This particular eclipse is personal for reasons I do not wish to disclose on the open internet.  I thought about NOT writing about it and just leaving the 2016 New Moons page and the writings of others (reblogs) as my proxy.

But, I changed my mind.  And then I found a body of work I had produced on this eclipse a few weeks ago.  No written work, mind you, but chart graphics from the time when I developed my analysis of the rather important Grand Quintile of August 28th.  That confirmed for me that I needed to put up what I had done in a post.

This Grand Quintile period we are in, from August 28th until September 11th, is particularly rare.  If you check the Grand Quintiles from 1800 to 2050 page, you will find most of them last a few hours or a day.  Exceptions exist, such as in 1809 and 1810, but they are just that: exceptions.  So is this current window.

This Solar Eclipse, a special type of New Moon, is a punctuation mark in this window.  It also corresponds to an Eclipse in September of 1997, which was an extremely important period for me personally.  I am left wondering what this one will bring me.

First, let us take a peek at the Kite pattern that  is present.  Kites are not extremely rare, but they are not particularly common either.  This one has the Eclipse, itself, at the focal point and Neptune in opposition (and Neptune is part of the Grand Trine that forms the body of the kite).  (Kites are always, inherently, built from Grand Trines, the pattern that is the namesake of this blog (and my internet alter ego).)  Some of us, likely many of us, are facing one of the most important opportunities of our lives.  We are at one of the most important junctures in our individual and collective lives.  The decisions, and followup actions, that we make (or not) are critically important to the results that manifest (or fail to manifest) consequently.  Negligence is a profound danger here.

Here is the chart of the Eclipse, filtered for that Kite pattern:

Juno and Vesta (both major asteroids) form the other points of the Grand Trine.  Juno brings issues of trust and intimacy to the forefront, particularly as they involve wives, sisters, mothers, and other female family members.  Vesta is about traditions and whether or not we follow and honor them or create new ones when old ones no longer serve us.

Here is the same chart, filtered for the Grand Trine instead of the Kite:

Solar Eclipse 2016-09-01 Grand Trines (NM, Mercury Rx)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that the opposition of the Eclipse to Neptune has not yet quite perfected, but will perfect soon with the annual opposition of Sun to Neptune on Friday.  Friday’s opposition has a Thor’s Hammer (energy, often in the form of violence or explosions) and a Yod (insisting that an important decision must be made).  You will have to make a decision in this period, and something or someone from the past (Mercury Retrograde) will be part of that decision.

This Eclipse also has a Thor’s Hammer (aka God’s Fist) present with all the “energy” (and DANGER!) that brings.  (Do be careful!)

Solar Eclipse 2016-09-01 Thors Hammer (NM, Mercury Rx)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We also note the presence of a Rosetta; we interpret that pattern as indicative of the important of short-term alliances and relationships.  Treachery is a very real possibility, and people (including major politicians) are likely to shift their positions and allegiances at this time.

Solar Eclipse 2016-09-01 Rosetta (NM, Mercury Rx)

T-Squares are present and amplify the energy (and danger) of the Thor’s Hammer:

Solar Eclipse 2016-09-01 T-Squares (NM, Mercury Rx)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This next point is particularly important: please note there are TWO independent sets of T-Squares.  This makes “handling” the sources of “irritation” difficult and more likely impossible.  We would not be surprised at all to hear about someone or something “blowing up” (or a mass shooting) in the next few days.  Since the Eclipse really consumes nearly the entirety of the African continent, we would not be surprised to see the event there.

Here are the Seventh Harmonic or “karmic” aspects:

Solar Eclipse 2016-09-01 7th Harmonic (NM, Mercury Rx)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note the presence of a triangular pattern of septiles composed of a septile, biseptile, and triseptile.  Chiron, Saturn, and Astraea are involved.  We would not be surprised to learn of a major lawsuit (or similar legal system involvement) involving either educational or healthcare systems (or both).  Frankly, we think there will be “hell to pay.”

We will stop there, but we cannot emphasize strongly enough just how important this window of opportunity is.  After September 11th, most of it closes.  All will be gone by Mercury Direct Station and the Autumnal Equinox.  By then, “the concrete will have set.”

Some useful links:

Only a handful of New Moons have a Grand Quintile during the period from 1800 to 2050 (and Solar Fire did not count this NM as one of them though we argue that it is):

Full Moon August 18th 2016: Danger and Opportunity

We see both danger and opportunity in this Leo / Aquarius Full Moon.  With Sun at 25 degrees Leo and Moon at 25 Aquarius, both are square to Algol in Taurus.  That alone would be enough to give pause.  But, a pronounced Thor’s Hammer pattern is present, and that is present with anger and temper and people, places, and things that go Boom!

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

A Rosetta pattern is present, telling us that we will need to make allegiances but they will tend to be short-lived and may turn to treachery:

We often ignore T-Squares in our analysis, but a number are present and some of this has figured in a major way in events this summer starting in May / June.  Here is the same FM chart but filtered for T-Squares:

Please do note that Mars, in Sagittarius, is square the Nodes in Virgo / Pisces (the Nodes are sometimes called “Rahu” and “Ketu” by Vedic astrologers).  This brings an especially “karmic” or fated feel to any violence that occurs at this time.  And, by this FM, at least some of the violence will have manifested leading this to be a time of sorrow and weeping for many.

Opportunity is present and signaled by Grand Trines that connect to the South Node / Neptune:

We note that, while a true Kite is not present, signalling a strong opportunity, we have what has been called an “almost Kite” completed by Pluto.  Since Pluto is at the apex, we expect the “opportunity” to deal with death, police, intelligence agencies, or financial institutions (or some mix of those).

Finally, the presence of a Yod signals that an important decision must be made.  We choose one path or the other and should never look back.  If we look back, we will only see the rosy picture of the other path and not the hidden dangers that peppered that choice.

2016-08-02 New Moon in Leo (Mystic Rectangle and more)

2016-08-02 New Moon in Leo (Mystic Rectangle and more)

The New Moon of August 2nd is characterized by a Mystic Rectangle that begins July 30th and persists until August 4th.  Mystic Rectangles are comparatively rare, but we note that 2016 has an abundant supply of them.  (Click Here to compare other New Moons of 2016.  And click here to compare the Full Moons of 2016.)

Hillary Clinton also has a Mystic Rectangle in her natal chart.

Here is the chart of the New Moon, filtered to identify the Mystic Rectangle:2016-08-02 New Moon (Leo, Mystic Rectangle).jpg

The question remains: WHAT IS a Mystic Rectangle?  A variety of comments have been made, but analysis of astrological patterns is not discussed much elsewhere (that I have found) and I am left with the impression that it is a late 20th Century / early 21st Century innovation.  (I am sure someone “out there” has evidence to the contrary.  But, so far, I have not seen it.)  Here are some of the links we have found:

These all say the same thing: (1) they describe the pattern (two oppositions tethered together by sextiles and trines and (2) it is a rare but benevolent pattern.  On #2, some variance exists with some saying that it is merely “helpful” while others describe it as “golden.”  We think that it may include important lessons learned since we have seen it tied to certain traumatic events this year.

In any case, a window is open containing one from July 30th until August 4th of 2016, and the Leo New Moon is contained within that window.  Since what we call a “Kite Key” is also present (two interlaced Kites that are often associated with a Mystic Rectangle), we think that a rare window of opportunity is present here.  We suggest you seize it.

This New Moon also has a Hele (long term alliances) and Rosetta (short term alliances that might include treachery) present.  We present the New Moon filtered first for the Hele and then again for the Rosetta:

[Click to Enlarge]

We think these patterns mostly speak for themselves and need little explanation to regular readers of this site.  But we will recap: the Hele (Venus / Uranus + Mars / Chiron) is about long term alliances and choosing between one side or the other.  (For this reason, we consider both the Hele and Rosetta as “polarizing” influences that lead to conflicts such as The Police (as a collective) versus the Black Lives Matter movement (as a collective).)  In this case, one side (leg) is Venus / Uranus (unusual romances or innovative finance, take your pick) and the other is Mars / Chiron (the Wounded Healer (health, education) in alliance with The Martians (Warriors such as police, military, and similar)).  You can pick one side or the other but not both.

The Rosetta has Mars / Chiron on one leg (and we note that is RATHER similar to Mars / Neptune) and Astraea / Vesta on the other leg (law and lawyers aligned with traditions and “the way we have always done things).  We think, among other things, this might involve the privacy battles between, on one side, Apple and the EFF (and most of the tech community), and, on the other side, the NSA and FBI (and most of the police and intelligence agencies).  Needless to say, elements within each “side” do not trust other elements within the same side.  Presenting a “unified front” is tricky.

This complex and sophisticated New Moon has more to offer.  Upon filtering for Kites, we found what we call a “Kite Key.”  This is a pair of interlaced Kites, and it represents a rare and incredible opportunity for those with “eyes to see it.”  Here is the same New Moon, filtered for the Kites (and “Kite Key”):

2016-08-02 New Moon (Leo, Kite Key)[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that the Apex of this pattern is found in Vesta in Cancer: traditions and “how we have always done things” particularly with regard to home, oceans, graves (and graveyards), and anything having to do with water or any kind of “final resting place.”

The underlying Grand Trine is composed of asteroids, and if you do not use those then you can disregard much of what we are saying.  (But, we think most of the audience DOES want to here what we have to say.)  Here is the same chart, filtered for the Grand Trine underlying the Kites:

Finally, a Yod is present.  That means you MUST make an important decision.  You can choose one side or the other, but you cannot choose both.  Here is the same New Moon, filtered for the Yod:

The last time we had a New Moon on August 2nd was 1970.  If you were born on that date (August 2nd of 1970) then this NM represents a special turning point for you.  We would argue that the same is probably true, also, for those born on August 1st or August 3rd.

Next is a list of Leo New Moons from 1950 until 2050.

Full Moon 2016-07-19 Diamond Pattern

The Full Moon of July 19th of 2016 has a rare diamond pattern in it.

2016-07-19-FullMoon-Diamond

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We will have more to say about this FM as it approaches perfection, but you need to know now that this indicates we are in a window of rare and powerful importance.  Diamond patterns are rare, and we had one on the Winter’s Solstice of 2012 (when many people predicted the end of the world).  We are not at the “end of the world,” but we (collectively) are facing major change, and this diamond pattern confirms that.

This is likely the most pattern rich lunation we have seen since we started the blog in 2008.  (But, you might want to compare this to the Full Moon of May 21st, also an important lunation this year.)  The following patterns are included in this particular lunation:

  • Diamond
  • Rosetta (several)
  • Hard Rectangle (has been associated with violence when not properly channeled)
  • Mystic Rectangle (a sign of rare opportunity and present in Hillary Clinton’s birth chart)
  • Kites (two, interlaced; signs of powerful opportunity)
  • Thor’s Hammer (aka God’s Fist, a pair of them in an incredibly rare configuration resembling a Star of David)
  • Grand Cross (sometimes associated with violence as we saw in late June of this year)
  • A Yod (sign of a decision; a “fork in the road” where we must decide with no turning back)

We will have more to say in the hours that come as this FM perfects, but we are just getting the basics out there for anyone else interested in patterns.  Let’s face it: we live in unusual times, and the days really are bringing new, and sometimes disturbing, events.

The Rosetta is a sign of quick alliances that might turn to treachery or deceit later.  Pick your “friends” carefully at this time.  This chart has SEVERAL of them:

2016-07-19-FullMoon-Rosetta

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We have seen the Hard Rectangle previously associated with violence this year.  (Compare the Hard Rectangle of April 22nd.)  This FM has one of those, also:

2016-07-19-FullMoon-HardRectangle

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The Mystic Rectangle is also particularly rare.  We note that Hillary Clinton’s birth chart has one of these.  They bring special gifts and opportunities to a person, and they bring the same to a window of time and the events in that same window of time.

2016-07-19-FullMoon-MysticRectangle

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that in addition to containing the Full Moon itself (Cancer Sun opposed by Capricorn Moon), that the Mystic Rectangle also contains Astraea (law and lawyers) in Virgo (healthcare and accounting) opposite Chiron (the Wounded Healer and Teacher) in Pisces.  I bet major changes are happening that involve BOTH the legal system and the healthcare system.  (We may not be publicly aware of them, but they are happening.  The story will eventually come out.)

On a personal level, it is best to take care of either set of matters (legal system, healthcare, accounting / record keeping, and educational) at this time.  This is, clearly, a turning point.

We have two interlaced kites present.  This could be considered to be a “kite key” or something similar.  These are not just “kites” (windows of opportunity), they are “super kites” (huge windows of opportunity, if you have the eyes to see it).

2016-07-19-FullMoon-Kites

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that these Kites CONTAIN the Mystic Rectangle WITHIN them!  Open your eyes: something special is waiting for you!  We note that a similar pattern occurred with the Winters Solstice of 2015.

An incredibly rare pair of Thor’s Hammers are also present.  These are INCREDIBLY DANGEROUS, but they also contain the power to “get things done.”  Channel that energy (and anger) into a constructive process that harnesses the opportunity (opportunities, really) that are present.

2016-07-19-FullMoon-ThorsHammer

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We call this unusual pair of Thor’s Hammer patterns a “Thor’s Hammer Star.”  (But, if you like to call them the “God’s Fist” patterns, then we would call this the “Star of God” pattern.  Truly this signals that God / the Universe / your Higher Power is speaking to you now.  Please listen!)  We note that each of the nodes (“Rahu” and “Ketu”) are each at the apex of each Thor’s Hammer pattern.  The nodes are considered “fate” or “karma” by many astrologers.

Also present is a Grand Cross.  The mutable grand cross of late June was discussed much by a number of astrologers.  The consensus was that it was associated with the shakeups and violence of that period.

2016-07-19-FullMoon-GrandCross

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that this is a CARDINAL Grand Cross.  The Mutable Grand Cross was about ENDINGS and cleaning things out.  This one is about launching new things, though we may still want to do some “cleaning out” during the next two weeks of the waning moon.

A Yod is also present:

2016-07-19-FullMoon-Yod

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Yods are places where we MUST make a decision.  Even “deciding not to decide” (abdication) is a decision.  We are at a fork in the road.  We must choose and never look back.  The other path will always “look better,” but it, too, had its difficulties.  The time to decide is at hand.

Finally, we note the presence of a Grand Trine.  It is contained within the heart of the pair of kites we mentioned earlier.  It brings “good times” and can make us lazy when we should be working.  Do not let the opportunity slip by you.

2016-07-19-FullMoon-GrandTrine

We will add more, later, as we approach perfection of this FM.  But, for now, we have covered “the basics.”  And, in this case, those “basics” present to us very much to consider and act upon.

Jupiter Square Saturn 2016-05-26

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:

2016-05-26 Jupiter Square Saturn (5th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

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)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

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:

2016-05-26 Jupiter Square Saturn (Kite)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

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:

2016-05-26 Jupiter Square Saturn (Hele)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

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!”

2016-05-26 Jupiter Square Saturn (Rosetta)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

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.

 

Full Moon 2016-05-21 (Grand Cross, Kite, Hele, and Thor’s Hammer)

Full Moon 2016-05-21 (Grand Cross, Kite, Hele, and Thor’s Hammer)

This Full Moon marks an important turning point.  The FM perfects on the 21st, the day before Mercury Direct Station on the 22nd.  And, the FM is in the “too early to tell” parts of Sagittarius and Gemini.  That means that more will be revealed to us, particularly if you are a Sagittarius or Gemini.

Because of the presence of a Grand Cross, with Astraea in Virgo and Pallas in Pisces, that same admonishment applies to Virgo and Pisces as well.  If you are Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo, or Pisces, then you about to receive a major surprise, most likely a beneficial one, but nevertheless a surprise.

Here is the Full Moon (FM), filtered for the Grand Cross:

Full Moon 2016-05-21 (Grand Cross)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We also have a slightly longer term Thor’s Hammer (God’s Fist) present that covers the few days before the FM and the days after as well (meaning the weekend).  As with other Thor’s Hammers, the potential for danger is present, and the energy needs to be channeled into productive outlets to prevent something or someone from going “boom.”

Here is the FM, filtered for the Thor’s Hammer:

Full Moon 2016-05-21 (Thor's Hammer)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Also present is a Hele, a sign of the formation of long-term, or at least longer term, alliances.  What is thorny, here, is that the alliances will tend to be formed in the “too early to tell” period, and that means that you may discover some aspects of your allies, later, that might not be so pleasant.  (Be careful who you pick for your new friends.)

Here is the FM, filtered for the Hele:

Full Moon 2016-05-21 (Hele)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

An opportunity is present here also. We have a kite, a bit of a loose one, and that shows opportunity for those who can see it.  Here is the same FM, filtered for the kite:

Full Moon 2016-05-21 (Kite)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This opportunity  tends to favor Pisces and Virgo in particular.  For Pisces, this is easy to see and easy to take advantage but does not represent a “growth opportunity.”  (Are you looking for one of those?)  For Virgo, the reverse is true: hard work and personal growth results but it is a major opportunity.

In any case, do keep in mind that Mercury is about to station direct, that this FM is in the “too early to tell” period, and that we are all about to experience a “surprise” of some kind.

And, by the time of the next Full Moon (June 20th, also Sagittarius Moon / Gemini Sun), it will seem that everything that occurred was “fate.”

Some time over a decade ago, and before I started this blog, I discovered the work of Jonathon Cainer.  He was a standard “Sun sign” style newspaper astrologer in the UK, but he was also much more than that.  His daily entries had a remarkable quality to them that I describe as “philosophical.”  While others, myself included, would focus in on the details of what, say, a Sagittarius Moon / Gemini Sun type full moon had to say, Cainer would zoom out and speak in lyrical words of poetry about the bigger picture of such a turn of events.

He was, in a word, inspiring.

So, I was disappointed to discover this morning, May 19th, that he had passed away on May 2nd of this year, 2016.  No chance now of him reading that email that I kept thinking about sending him for years but then not sending because I wanted to remain anonymous.  No chance of somehow showing up in England and having a chance encounter where I might speak to him for a moment.  The windows are closed, and the best I can do is an analysis of his birth and death charts (based on available data) in his memory.

His birth chart is remarkable, having both a Stretched Pentagram and a Diamond in it.  These tend to be rather rare, and he had both of them.  We show the birth chart for the Stretched Pentagram first:

Cainer (Birth, Stretched Pentagram)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

It is the kind of chart, from the perspective of patterns, that is nothing short of amazing.  Here is the birth chart, again, with the Diamond highlighted:

Cainer (Birth, Diamond, Beginner)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Much of the Diamond and Stretched Pentagram overlap.  The evening of Winter’s Solstice 2012 (aka “The End of the World as We Know It”) had a Diamond in it, and while 2012 came and went without the end of the world, we can say that this period of years, marked by the Uranus / Pluto squares (or, as Cainer called it: “the bell tolls seven times”) has been remarkable in changes and upheaval (“Arab Spring,” “Black Lives Matter,” the dominance of “smart phones” in our collective lives, the candidacy of Donald Trump for President, etc.)

Cainer had other patterns also.  He had a “Square Key” which is really two interlocked “Huber Learning Triangles.”  These tell us what his biography said: he worked through some rather intense “karma” to reach the point he did in life.  Life was not particularly easy for him in the beginning, and arguably it was probably fairly tough even after he had acquired fortune and fame.

Here is the chart filtered for the Square Key:

Cainer (Birth, Square Key)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Just in case that was not enough, he also had a “Double Yod Key” (DYK).  This tells us he was face with many tough decisions, the kind where you always look back and wonder “what if I had taken the other path”?  Filtered for DYK:

Cainer (Birth, Double Yod Key)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The DYK is hard to see because it is built into his other patterns.  But, if we filter for yods, we find three of them, and they are a bit more obvious:

Cainer (Birth, Double Yods)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This is NOT an “easy” life.  It is spent worrying about “what if” I had done something else.  But Cainer was also born with the ability to accomplish much, and he did.

Cainer (Birth, Rosetta, Beginner)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Finally, we see a Rosetta in the birth chart.  We interpret this as “unstable alliances,” and from what we know this was true as well.  He moved back and forth between newspapers as shifting alliances pushed him to do just that.

If we filter for a Grand Cross we do not find one, but if we filter for T-Squares, then a slightly “loose” Grand Cross is obviously present (and a source of tremendous energy and the ability to “get things done”):

Cainer (Birth, T-Squares)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

A 5th Harmonic filter shows a triangular pattern (two quintiles and a biquintile) involving Mars, Pallas, and Venus:

Cainer (Birth, 5th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We might add here that his highly activated Neptune near Midheaven is an indicator of psychic abilities.  It can also indicate alcohol or drug problems or some kind of involvement (he did manage a bar at one point).  We suspect that he felt many people “pulling” on him.  (Neptune can be the savior / martyr complex as well.)

Seventh harmonic in the birth chart also contains a triangular pattern and is sufficiently activated to indicate, again, these “karmic” issues to work through:

Cainer (Birth, 7th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Vesta/Hygeia, Neptune, and Sun compose the triangular pattern and indicate, again, both psychic abilities and physical illness as well.  (We suspect that long term / chronic illness may have plagued him but that he did not disclose it publicly.)

Now to the death chart.  A single pattern dominates: a hard rectangle!

Cainer (Death, Hard Rectangle)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

One other pattern is present in the death chart: a Kite (if you are willing to use North / South lunar nodes):

Cainer (Death, Kite)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that the remainder of the kite is formed by Mercury and Pluto, both retrograde.  It is almost as if the cosmic said “OK we will give you a little more time to accomplish something, and then it is time to go.”  We may never know what that “something” was because it likely dealt with family and financial matters.  But he had received a reprieve of some kind from what was likely a “close call” of some kind earlier.  (Again, we will likely never be able to confirm or deny this.)  This kite also says that someone, somehow, greatly benefited from his death!  (What could that mean?)

Seventh Harmonic is also interesting:

Cainer (Death, 7th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Mars, Astraea, and Sun are involved in a triangular 7th harmonic pattern (made of a TriSeptile and two BiSeptiles).  We wonder if some kind of legal issues were about to emerge at the time of his death.  (Again, we would bet that this is something private despite 2 out of 3 planets being above ground.)

Finally, we present the bi-wheel without patterns or much analysis except to note that his second Saturn return was upon him (and the one for the author of this blog is not too far away either).  Saturn returns often “take us home,” and that is what happened for him.

We have little more to add to this analysis, especially since we prefer our readers dig into it for themselves.  But, he was a giant in the field, and he will be missed.  And, as an aside, my own coming Saturn return leaves me rather “nervous.”

2016 Taurus New MooooN (Hele, Kites, T-Squares)

2016 Taurus New MooooN (Hele, Kites, T-Squares)

Five retrograde planets and a Taurus New Moon.  That is where we start.  Also, this NM occurs in Week 19 of 2016 in the month of May.

This NM is in Taurus near the center of the sign at 16 degrees, just one degree past the point of the “Cross Quarter Day” (which in this case is what some call “Astrological” Beltane).  If you celebrated Beltane yesterday (on Cinco de Mayo), then you should have focused on clearing on the old to make room for the new.  But, what “new” are we preparing for this time?

In this case, three patterns are present.  Arguably, this is one pattern and two sets of patterns.  We have one Hele, and that tells us to take a hard look at our long term alliances.

We have a series of Kites built from a series of overlapping Grand Trines. To be clear: Kites are ordinarily built from Grand Trines, so that is not the issue.  The issue is that Sun/Moon is on one leg of the Grand Earth Trine, North Node / Jupiter on another (the Virgo leg), and Pluto on the third leg (Capricorn).  This is all about money and, more generally, material manifestation.  The Kite(s) are completed by the South Node.

So we have the odd situation where we manifest something through hard work (North Node) probably in higher education, the legal system, or long distance travel (Jupiter) that involves a profound change, police or intelligence agencies, or someone’s death (Pluto) but, in the end, we have to look to our “old behavior” (the stuff we are trying to move beyond) to truly manifest the opportunity.

(To see more about other New Moons in 2016, click here.)

Here is the New Moon (NM) chart, filtered for the Kites:

2016 Taurus New Moooon (Kite)

[Click to Enlarge]

So, for some or many of you, this either is totally unclear or provides a great deal of clarity.

One way to solve the problem is to take one of the planets and identify how it operates in your life.  Pluto is slowest moving, and for some people that is easiest.  If so, identify what current issues you have involving finances, taxes, wills, inheritances, “other people’s money,” police, intelligence agencies, poisons, drugs, or anything else Plutonian in nature.  Move on to Jupiter, and look at long distance travel (particularly to a country where you are NOT a citizen), higher education (possibly over the last year or several years), law or legal system (are you in a lawsuit?  Divorce?), or anything else Jupiter “rules.”  Look for the commonalities between Jupiter and Pluto; they are very important from last fall through this summer (after that we move to other issues).

Next, look at Taurus issues: money (again, but from some different perspective, such as earning the money yourself), investments, health (particularly diet and exercise), “beauty” (if that applies to you), or any other Taurus (Venus) issues.  Keep in mind that Taurus is “fixed earth,” so it can be stubborn in the sense that granite is “stubborn” (and immovable).

Finally, take a look at where you are, where you want to go, and where you have been.  Did you leave something or someone behind?  Did you leave something undone?  If so, now is the time to wrap that up so you can move forward.

This NM is also about our long term alliances (the Hele):

2016 Taurus New Moooon (Hele)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Pick your “friends” carefully now.  They, or their influence, will be with you for a LONG time.  And, with Ceres involved, these “friends” may take you through some powerful times of “feasts” and “famines.”

Finally, we have too many T-Squares, overlapping, to count.  Here is the chart:

2016 Taurus New Moooon (T-Squares)

[Click to Enlarge]

You will have energy, and if you do not have energy you will have anger.  Likely you will have both.  If you do NOT use the nodes, then four different variants of T-Squares are present (with Saturn at the apex), and if you do use the nodes then NINE different variants are present (with Saturn at the apex).  You may believe you can keep your cool, “stay centered,” etc. but you cannot.  And anyone who appears to be doing that is lying and deceiving those around them.  Please do keep that in mind.

Avoid dangerous people, places, and things (including being a dangerous person yourself) and harness these energies to “get things done.”  These are longer term planetary positions, so we will see a series of grand crosses emerge in the weeks to come as planets move into the “hole” in the T-Square (that completes a grand cross) which is currently located at about 15 to 18 degrees Gemini.  (If you were born about June 6th, give or take a few days, this will be an “exciting” summer for you.  You will tend to have memorable events.)

2016-04 W17: Forecasts for Week 17 of 2016

2016-04 W17: Forecasts for Week 17 of 2016

We are deep in the shadow of the upcoming Mercury Retrograde station on April 28th, and “things” are likely to become interesting for that reason alone.  (Clarissa has written a great piece on the Mercury Retrograde.  And you can find more about these periods for the rest of the year here.)  The Full Moon perfected early April 22nd, and we still feel the effects from this one.

The time is at hand to review old and forgotten projects, and to meticulously check every detail of ongoing projects.  Resurrection of old projects CAN go very well at this time, but new ones seem to falter.  Expect to do maintenance to vehicles (cars, planes, boats) and electronics (television, computer, and telephones).

If you are a student, we continue to recommend that you focus yourself entirely on your projects and preparing for upcoming final exams.

April 2016 (Mars Out)

Week 17 (W17)

Archive of Week 16 (W16)

Sunday April 17th

Mars stations retrograde today, and that trumps everything.  Mercury trine Pluto in early morning hours (overnight) takes SOME of the sting out of the mess, but chances are good that “it” is a mess.

Use today for downtime and reflection if you can.  This is a good day to take a long hard look at what you have been able to accomplish and what you have not.  Maybe the time has come to either delegate or drop stuck or failed projects that sucked the lifeblood out of you.  Write them off and stop sending time, money, and people after what cannot be accomplished.

Monday April 18th

Pluto turns retrograde and worsens the situation.  Again, time to drop failed projects so you can focus on what can be accomplished.  Venus trine Saturn brings the focus to accomplish something useful if you do not waste time or other resources on failed projects.

Tuesday April 19th

Sun enters Taurus today, and that can serve us well or harm us greatly.  From now past at least May 9th we need to review and adjust rather than push forward.

From now until (at least) after Jupiter stations direct on May 9th, you will need to review and adjust plans.  With some plans you may need to wait to move forward until after the Mercury Direct Station on May 22nd or the following New Moon on June 4th.  Still other plans will be on hold until after Mars Direct Station on June 29th or after the following New Moon on July 4th.  Only you, personally, will know which windows applies best to which project.  If you are not certain, you can test possibly forward most after these key dates.

Taurus can give any of us (but particularly the Earth signs) a powerful level of “strength” to accomplish “things,” but that strength can make a terrible mess of “things” also.  (The “poster child” for this in astrology was Adolf Hitler.  Don’t be a “Hitler.”  If you are making a MESS of “things” then STOP.)

Regarding today, besides the Sun entering Taurus, Venus squares Pluto which can be very good (or very bad) for sex and romance.  It typically does NOT bode well for financial markets, but wherever you have losers you have winners and vice versa.  Regarding the markets, the next thirty days “may not be entirely stable.” (As 3CPO said about that asteroid in Star Wars with Han Solo saying “Chewie, take the professor in the back.”)

Wednesday April 20th

This is a day where lunar aspects dominate.  You can “get things done” (in a minor way) if you pay attention to earlier warnings.  Get done what must be done and pay careful attention to details.  This is likely the best day this week, but some tasks or projects will have to be re-done.

Thursday April 21st

Moon is void most of the day (in Libra) and changes sign shortly before a full moon (Moon in Scorpio / Sun in Taurus).  “Getting things done” today is a bit difficult.  Use it for cleaning out and planning.  If your faith observes lunations, this is a particularly good one for ceremonies.

A Full Moon (Scorpio / Taurus) perfects in the early morning hours (CDT / MDT / PDT) and on Thursday in areas east of those time zones.  All of these time zones, most time zones, will feel this FM more on Thursday and Friday.

Friday April 22nd

Most people in PDT (West Coast of USA) and points east will awaken to the waning “just past full” moon.  (Pacific Rim citizens may awaken as it perfects or just before.)  It is Scorpio (Moon) / Taurus (Sun) and we all feel those.  All fixed signs will be stirred to action, and Leo / Aquarius will be particularly irritated (or worse) in some way.  Earth (Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo) and Water (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) signs will tend to benefit.  Fire (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) and Air (Libra, Aquarius, Gemini) may experience this FM as weakening their position in some way.  Fire and Air will gain SOME strength from the Venus / Uranus conjunction (in the form of insights) but everyone should expect surprises.

A bit like Wednesday, you might actually accomplish something today despite difficult astrological circumstances.  Again: Venus joins Uranus (both in Aries), so expect surprises and use the insights gained to accomplish something if that is possible (and to learn the lesson if not possible).

Saturday April 23rd

Use this as a playday.  A pair of lunar quincunxes bring problems to the early morning hours but you can move past them if you choose to do so.  Moon becomes void before 5 PM CDT, so use the evening as downtime especially “quiet time.”  Tonight is a good night to read the Torah (if you do that).  Passover begins.
