This New Moon has a number of interesting patterns. Also, Jupiter is at 29 Aquarius (The “Anaretic Degree“), a place where making decisions can be difficult. This position for Jupiter also means that Jupiter is “fated” according to some, and will soon move into “too early to tell.” (We recently looked at Uranus in the Anaretic Degree of Aries in the Bonnie and Clyde death chart. We also noted Sun AND Saturn in the Anaretic Degree of different signs on March 18th, 2020, near the time when the public first went into a panic about the Pandemic of 2020.)

Just to be clear, this New Moon signals a turning point, maybe a crisis for both individuals and larger groups, maybe nations, maybe the planet (Earth).

We ignore T-Squares because they are virtually always present in some form (so we only talk about Outer Planet T-Squares or something else unusual / powerful.)

Here are the patterns we have identified associated with this New Moon:

  • Kite (one clear cut kite and several “almost” kites)
  • Grand Trines (these are essential for Kites to exist)
  • Hele (conflicts between groups) (we predict bipartisan efforts will tend to fail at this time)
  • Rosetta (conflicts within groups, shifting allegiances)
  • A Double Yod Key (at least TWO (or more!) major decisions in play)
  • A Square Key (two interlaced Huber Learning Triangles; lessons to be learned from the experiences at this time)

A quick summary of what these patterns mean : (1) the Kite signals an opportunity (but this is a “difficult” opportunity in that it involves Saturn and Chiron; the bottom line is you must WORK for this one!); (2) multiple grand trines are in play (many opportunities; some people will let these pass them by); (3) Hele / Rosetta patterns (treachery is afoot; conflicts exist and allegiances are shifting; “bipartisan” efforts either fail at this time or lead to unintended outcomes; politics becomes even more messy than usual); (4) a Double Yod Key (expect AT LEAST TWO, or more, major decisions at this time); and (5) a Square Key (two interlaced Huber Learning Triangles; keep notes and pay attention; you’ll learn important lessons from this period of time).

Here are the charts for this NM, each filtered for the above patterns:

We start with a version of the chart that specifically focuses on aspects to the Sun. Since the Sun and Moon are precisely aligned in an opposition (a Full Moon is an opposition of the Sun and the Moon), aspects to the Sun are also aspects to the Moon. However, we are showing the Sun to make the point that these aspects are longer lasting, surrounding the FM before and after.

This Full Moon is active (as the previous chart showed). Here are the patterns that are in play here:

  • Grand Trines (a Grand Earth Trine and a Grand Fire Trine)
  • A Kite (and a separate “almost” Kite that we omit)
  • Hard Rectangle (which likely affects Texas and certain other geography but not everyone directly)
  • Thor’s Hammer / God’s Fist
  • Rosettas (which we show) and Heles (which we omit as poorly formed)
  • Square Keys

Our analysis: The grand trines are almost always a sign of opportunity, if we seize it, but a temptation to simply enjoy a “good time,” allowing the gift to pass us by. The Kite emphasizes this moreso, and since the kite is tied to the Moon we know this will not last long, a day or two at most, maybe only a few hours.

A Hard Rectangle appears for the chart set in Plano, and it will affect certain other parts of the United States, also, but since the Midheaven is involved it will be fleeting. Tempers can soar with these, and since Neptune is involved the anger or violence may have alcohol or drugs involved. If no alcohol or drugs, then a person who has been marginalized may go on a rampage.

The Thor’s Hammer patterns further confirms what the Hard Rectangle tells us, and at least one of these is global, not tied necessarily to a particular geography. I hate to say it, but we may still see more shootings.

Rosettas and Heles tell us that the politicians will be active, and anyone similar to politicians will also be active. In particular, issues of allegiance and loyalty will be in play, and treachery will be part of the mix. Watch your back!

Finally, we have Square Keys. These tend to tell us that we have lessons to learn, and we can learn them if we pay attention.

In Memory of Cainer

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.”
