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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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!  🙂

For other forecasts (reblogs), try our Posts Page.

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.

2016-12 W52: Forecasts for Week 52 of 2016

WEEK 52 (W52) / (EUROPEAN WEEK 51 / W51)

The Moon is waning just a few days past full with both the Winter Solstice on Wednesday the 21st along with the shift to the last quarter.  By itself, those are enough to make this week “interesting” but the Mercury Retrograde station Monday precisely on the day that the College of Cardinals, er the Electoral College, meets to decide (if that is possible for them) on our new president.  Let’s hope for white smoke so we can all move forward.  Saturday contains the highly influential trine of Saturn to Uranus, and the following week contains the Uranus direct station.  Though almost all of the Uber Liberals don’t get it, Donald Trump IS a Uranian president-elect, and this week is important to him (and us).  These Uranus / Saturn / Mercury shifts on top…

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

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

3  Election Predictions

No Astrology Needed

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

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

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

A Wee Bit of Astrology Needed

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

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

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

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

Mars and Pluto

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

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

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

Strange Bedfellows

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

Post Script:  (a rant)

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

Zeitgeist

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

Persecution of Prometheus

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

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

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

Temptation is the Philosopher’s Stone

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

First, perfection of the aspect filtered for the Yod:

2016-10-23-jupiter-quincunx-neptune-yod

[Click Image to Enlarge]

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

2016-10-23-jupiter-quincunx-neptune-focused-yod

[Click Image to Enlarge]

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

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

2016-10-23-jupiter-quincunx-neptune-thors-hammers

[Click Image to Enlarge]

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

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

2016-10-23-jupiter-quincunx-neptune-5th-harmonic

[Click Image to Enlarge]

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

2016-10-23-jupiter-quincunx-neptune-7th-harmonic

[Click Image to Enlarge]

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[Click Image to Enlarge]

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

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

[Click Image to Enlarge]

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2016-09-16 Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon; Rosetta + T-Squares)

2016-09-16 Appulse Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon)

First of all, let’s clarify the basic message of this Full Moon / Eclipse: you have much to accomplish in the next month to eighteen months, some of the projects are overdue, you have the energy to do it if you can avoid unproductive and unnecessary anger (note that SOME anger, sometimes, CAN be productive!), and you will have to form temporary allegiances with people who have the potential to later betray you.  THAT is the basic message.

How do we get this?  First, Mercury is Retrograde and less than a week away from the Direct Station.  This FM/Eclipse must involve projects on hold, details that must be attended to, and the resurrection of old projects whose time has come.

Next, since this is a Full Moon, it will govern the next two weeks the strongest but could govern a period of up to eighteen months because an eclipse is involved.  The time period may vary based on other factors such as subsequent eclipses, subsequent Mercury retrograde / direct stations, and patterns in your personal chart or the charts of those around you.

Finally, this eclipse has a number of T-Squares in play, including a very “tight” (potent, powerful) T-Square with Mars in Sagittarius squaring the Sun in Virgo and Moon in Pisces.  Mars is at 23 degrees and Sun/Moon at 24 degrees, and in many cases (but not all) this involves Algol aspects in the birth chart.  If you have Algol near 24 degrees (as many do) ans aspected in your birth chart, then you will likely “feel” this one.  Moon is also close to Chiron (health, education, and sometimes both; the “wounded healer”) and those issues may be in play.  (More on that in a moment.)

We could stop there, regarding the mutable T-Square, but ANOTHER mutable T-Square is present, this one involving Saturn in Sagittarius, squaring the Nodes.  Note that Neptune is conjunct the South Node, and this makes sense because the third (of three) Saturn square to Neptune recently perfected.

This mix (Nodes, Saturn, and Neptune) brings in a heavy dose of “karma” tempered by problems with “reality checks.”  (aka “Oops, my reality check just bounced.”)  No matter which side of it you are on, you are WRONG here.  (That is what you wanted to hear, right?)

If you are being practical and realistic (Saturn) then you lack vision and will never accomplish your heart’s desire (Neptune).  And if you are a bit too dreamy, then you lack the necessary practical effort to accomplish it, either.  The real answer is in balance.  Some dreams can never be accomplished but, also, sometimes we surprise ourselves.  BOTH of these contradictory and paradoxical truths are necessary.

We present the chart of the FM / Eclipse, filtered for T-Squares:

2016-09-16-lunar-eclipse-full-moon-t-squares

[Click Image to Enlarge]

While many (most?) other astrologers have focused on the Mars / Eclipse T-Square, we believe that you cannot safely ignore the T-Square with Vesta (traditions) in Cancer (family in particular but also water, liquids, oceans, and related) at the apex, Uranus (23 Aries) squaring Vesta on one side, and Venus (love, money, health) / Astraea (law, lawyers, and the legal system) / Hygeia (health and healthcare) in Libra (very STRONG for Astraea) on the other side.

We would not be surprised to see important lawsuits filed at this time, or events that lead to important lawsuits, or both.  These will tend to involve health and healthcare (Hygeia AND Venus) especially involving females (Venus) and maybe cosmetics or beauty products (Venus).  Do pay attention to these possible issues that may affect some of you, particularly if you are twenty three degrees of a Cardinal sign (i.e. Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn).  We suspect that those born near 23 Capricorn (January 12th to January 14th) may feel this especially strongly.

More obviously affected are the mutables (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces) at twenty three degrees, and we think those at 23 Gemini (June 12th to June 14th) will feel this especially strongly.

What does “feel” mean?  It means that you will have “strong” energy and that is very good or very bad with not much in between depending upon your “level of advancement” (which is New Age speak for the ability to harness and direct the energy and circumstances to your will).  For mutables, this might be more of “surfing” the energy and circumstances (as you tend to do anyway) rather than “harnessing” the energy and circumsntances.  Other signs would be wise to work on developing those same skills to the degree possible.  (I am certain that a Taurus surfer exists somewhere in the world, maybe several of them, but it is a bit difficult to imagine a piece of granite gliding atop a wave.  I suppose anything is possible.  I have seen the universe produce some rather curious events and circumstances in my lifetime.)

So, in summary, you must address ALL THREE sets of issues (T-Squares) to “get this right.”

Most forecasts stop there, but we will not.  (OK, I admit it.  That was a self-serving advertisement.  Yes, it is true.  I AM a solar Leo.  The only reason I can do astrology is that 11th house stellium.  In a sense, I am an “Aquarius in Leo clothing.”  But, I digress.)

The pesky matter of that Rosetta remains.  Short term alliances are essential to accomplish what you must get done, whether it is in the next two weeks or next eighteen months, but the fact of the matter is that the Rosetta pattern tends to bring treachery.  People not only tend to “sell out,” but they do so easily.  Expect no loyalty no matter how sincere they may seem.  Here is the same chart, but filtered for the Rosetta pattern:

At this point you should have enough to work with.  For some people, maybe many people, this is a special and rare opportunity.  (As, curiously, much of 2016 has been.)  Use it wisely.  (2017 and points forward will be a very wild roller coaster.  You will look back at these days longingly.  Trust me on that!)

Love it or hate it, the period that started “about” August 15th is soon coming to an end.  We will have a major shift, maybe a previously unthinkable shift, soon.  (This might involve presidential politics.)  Expect it.

Here are the Virgo Sun / Pisces Moon Full Moons from 1950 to 2050:

Mercury Square Mars 2016-09-12 (Hele + Rosetta + Thor’s Hammer)

Mercury Square Mars 2016-09-12 (Hele + Rosetta + Thor’s Hammer)

As was true with the Mercury Square Mars aspect of July 29th, a Hele and Rosetta are present in this variant of the aspect.  Unlike July, a Thor’s Hammer is present rather than a Yod.  That means that this time issues have “heated up,” possibly issues from late July, and the key is to examine your alliances without losing your temper or being victimized by your associates.  To be certain, this is a dangerous window.  (We say window because arguably this aspect affects at least the day before and day after perfection of the aspect, namely the period from September 11th to September 13th.)

We present perfection of the Mercury Square Mars aspect, filtered for the Thor’s Hammer:
