Vernal Equinox 2017 (The First Day of Spring) Grand Cross

[As we frequently do, we are likely to tune and update this post through the time of the perfection of the equinox.  Therefore, you might want to check back.]

The Vernal Equinox of 2017 has a Grand Cross pattern in it if you use certain asteroids (and a T-Square otherwise):

We omit the T-Square variant (which is identical)

A rather peculiar Grand Trine is present (if you are willing to use asteroids and the nodes):

The 5th Harmonic variant shows significant activity but no patterns of note:

Our interpretation is that you might have some bright ideas, some particularly useful ones, but this is not a peak time of creativity.  (Nevertheless, opportunities are present if you are a “creative” that you should harness.)

We do see a triangular pattern present in the Septiles, and we believe that this means that this is a good time to help others less fortunate than yourself without expectations of any returns.  You may obtain an important glimpse of the future in the process of giving.

Although a horary format is not technically appropriate for such an event, we present it anyway for the useful information that can be used in other ways.  One way I like to use it is to reverse engineer: what question would I be asking if I saw a chart like this?

In this case, the question is something like this: “Can I trust the opinion of my friends about my money/new job?”  The answer is, succinctly, NO!  The Moon is peregrine (thieves, not trustworthy) in the 11th house of Friends and conjunct Saturn; both are at 27 degrees.  The last three degrees of anything are often “fate” and frequently void and generally unfavorable.  And as many as six (or more) are operating together to steer you in the wrong direction.  This is one time to NOT follow the “wisdom of crowds.”  Keep your own counsel!

But the Sun is at 0 degrees (of course!) in the 2nd house of Money, so we do not get a “real answer” about the money / job just yet.  It will come soon enough, maybe in a few days or possibly up to three weeks (after Mercury goes Retrograde and some misplaced message is found or vice versa).  Just persist, and as much as possible keep your plans to yourself.

This is just my interpretation, and surely others would read it differently.  (This is why I encourage checking a number of oracles / opinions.)

We now present the maps.  These are NOT the kind of detailed astrological maps that Kepler provides (or Solar Fire can provide with the “right” options set), but instead the more general maps.  We start with the United States map:

Noting the triple crossing in Canada, a few hundred miles north of Burlington VT, we think something interesting might happen there.

Here is the UK map:

And here is the map for Europe:

We now present the map for India:

And, now, the map for Japan and Korea:

And the “zoomed out” map for Southeast Asia:

Here is Australia and New Zealand:

And South Africa:

Finally, we present two versions of world maps:

Blue Monday?

January 23, 2017 at 12:13 pm | Posted in Annual Repeating Aspects, BadDays, Calendars, Special Days | 3 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , ,

First, let me point out the Wikipedia article in Blue Monday.  A bit of controversy exists about it, so let’s clarify a few things:

  1. Skeptics consider it “pseudoscience” “like astrology.”  Glad they do, that puts it in my domain. <smile>
  2. Some lament it claiming that “depression does not occur one day a year.”  Well, that is not the point.  “Blue Monday” has nothing to do with the mental illness of depression unless certain days, maybe “Blue Monday,” could be precipitating factors for some people.
  3. Some people have (incorrectly) said it is “the third Monday in January.”  Nope.  That is not the point.  It CAN be the “third Monday in January,” but it should NEVER be strictly codified as such.

So, what is it?

It is the Monday that follows the weekend where your “New Year’s Resolutions” crash, particularly if they involve a “diet” or some other (typically poorly conceived and poorly executed) weight loss plan.  For many people, this is the Monday that follows the THIRD WEEKEND in January.  The third Monday in January in 2017 was Monday, January 15th.  But the Monday that followed the THIRD WEEKEND is today, January 24th.  And, if your well intentioned “resolutions” crashed over the weekend, then chances are good you do not feel very good about that today, and that makes today “Blue Monday” for you.

And if you do suffer from the illness of depression, and you made unrealistic plans for the new year, then today could be tough.  If that is true, consider this: this, too, shall pass.

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…

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

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.

Sun Trine Pluto 2016-09-07 (Mystic Rectangle + Kites + Rosetta + Hele)

This repeats in two versions, each once a year. The previous one was in September, and both will repeat in May and September for the next few years. Sun Trine Pluto is also about power and power struggles, but the trines tend to be more benevolent than the squares in April and October. Still, take a look back at April 7th.  And, when you reach October 7th, compare your experiences now to then.

The perfection of this aspect is very busy with a number of patterns present, including a Mystic Rectangle, Kites, a Rosetta, and a Hele.  Opportunities about, and you may need to form coalitions to achieve certain results, but sorting out friend from foe could be tricky.

Here is the chart, filtered for the Mystic Rectangle:

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)

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!)

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.

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

[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):

Sun Opposite Neptune 2016-09-02 (Kite + Yod + TH)

If you kept your notes from Sun Conjunct Neptune on February 28th, then review them now.  This is another day that is best for poets and photographers.  We have a Yod in play, so you may need to make a decision at a time when your decision making is not at its best.  A Thor’s Hammer is in play, so you need to watch your temper and watch for others that might be dangerous.  But a Kite is also in play, and an opportunity is present.  Keep your eyes open lest it pass you by unnoticed.

Here is the chart for perfection of the aspect, filtered for the kite:

Full Moon August 18th 2016: Danger and Opportunity

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.

Sun Opposite Pluto 2016-07-07 (Mystic Rectangle)

Sun Opposite Pluto 2016-12-07 (Mystic Rectangle)

This is an annual transit, likely to continue with Sun in Cancer and Pluto in Capricorn for a few more years, and in this case has a Mystic Rectangle as the dominant pattern.  Mystic Rectangles tend to be rare patterns, but 2016 has many of them.  A window of opportunity is present with this aspect, but you may have to work for it.

Gemini New Moon 2016-06-04 (Grand Cross, Grand Trine, and Rosetta)

Gemini New Moon 2016-06-04 (Grand Cross, Grand Trine, and Rosetta)

We are writing this post a few hours in hindsight, a bit more than four hours after perfection.  We note that the annual Sun Square Jupiter aspect perfected earlier today.  (We will minimize duplication of the commentary on the earlier aspect.)

This is a dynamic New Moon (NM) and an important one, and much has been written by others because of the presence of a Grand Cross (GC).  This is a longer term GC which involves outer planets (notably Saturn, Neptune, and Jupiter), but the NM itself is (1) conjunct Venus and (2) forms the fourth leg of the GC.  Grand Crosses are relatively rare even when using asteroids (Chiron, Juno, Pallas, Vesta, and Ceres as well as others such as Hygeia and Astraea) or calculated points (North Node, South Node, Vertex, and so forth).  But this GC uses “real” planets, and that, by itself, is enough to make it a popular subject of discussion, interpretation, and speculation.

Maybe even more notable is that it is a mutable GC, and these invariably signify endings of some kind.  With a NM near the end of the Mecury Retrograde shadow, after the Direct Station, all are seeking to move forward and launch new projects.  AND you *CAN* do that, but these projects are more in the order of reaping what you have sewn.  Think of these projects as specifically being built on the past and what you have accomplished (or failed to accomplish).  This is your window to take stock and act accordingly.

And, on the outside chance you are uncertain about that, let me be clear: the upcoming Full Moon has a CARDINAL Grand Cross in it, and, oddly, that is about beginnings.  It tells us that the “cleanup period” between that Full Moon and the next New Moon is all about launching truly new projects.  (I am NOT saying you should launch during a waning moon.  I AM saying it is time you consider the option of COMPLETELY starting your life from the ground up and, absent that, questioning every assumption in your life about how things “have to be” with an eye to junking what is not working for you any more and doing things that are TRULY NEW in the most fundamental way possible.  This is your chance to TRULY change the train you are on.)

Whether all of us realize it or not, we are undergoing a large scale shift that is operating in many areas of our lives.  The current state of affairs of the United States Presidential election reflects that.  People feel strongly.  I will avoid becoming too political here, as I ordinarily avoid that, but many people object to the political system as it stands, and I mean many conservative people object as well as the more obvious liberal objections seeking “change.”  But what we see as election politics reflects deeper and more profound problems and issues.  And, they are not just in the United States.  This is a global phenomenon.

The late Jonathon Cainer, an astrologer whose work I followed, wrote of this a number of times when he spoke of the “bell” (Uranus Square Pluto) that would “toll seven times.”  Cainer was both a poet and a giant (as well as a bit of a character), and his voice will be missed.  (But we are happy that Oscar appears to be carrying the torch now.)  Jonathon Cainer stressed the point repeatedly: Uranus Square Pluto will bring HUGE global changes beyond anything we have seen (at least in recent generations if “ever”).  I agree.

By itself, that would be enough, and nothing more need be said.  But the fact is that we have an amazing series of patterns coming in the next few months starting now (and with the upcoming Full Moon).  Those of you who are astrologers know what I am talking about.  I see more of you writing about patterns this year, and I strongly suspect at least some of you have looked at certain pages I put up in late 2015, such as Rare and Absent Patterns in 2016 and, more generally, the 2016 Overview.  Whether or not you are an astrologer, if you like to do advanced planning to organize your life, then I suspect you should peek at those pages.

We also recommend you compare the Gemini New Moon of 2015 (last year) and the Taurus New MooooN of a month ago.  And by “compare,” I do not mean just peek at my pages.  Pull out your journal (you know the one, the one I recommend you keep, and, yes, I am chastising you like your mother would if you are not doing it, especially after telling you about FutureMe) and compare this month to last month, this month this year to this month last year.  You reap what you sew, but there MUST be some opportunity there.  This New Moon tells us that.  You must have “eyes to see.”

That said, and keeping in mind just how powerful the upcoming Full Moon / Solstice will be, we present the chart for the Gemini New Moon of 2016 with the Mutable Grand Cross (MGC):

2016-06-04 New Moon (Grand Cross)

In case you were not already aware, an AMAZING number of squares are present in this chart.  Children born at this time will be nothing short of revolutionary.  I knew a woman, deceased within the past few months, who was born with a similar birth chart.  She was the most gifted numerologist I ever met (I confess, I simply have NO idea how Numerology works, but she was completely accurate), and she had a greater ability to anger people (most people, even delicate ones, said “p*ss off” people) than almost anyone else I knew. She made people ANGRY with her criticism!  I tolerated her barbs because I really liked her (and I knew she liked me), but most did not.  Nevertheless, she was a very prosperous businesswoman here in Dallas, and all those squares left an impression on me.  (And, at least from my vantage point, she will be missed.  I liked her.)  This chart looks like that, but maybe even MORE squares than she had!

Interpret that however you choose.  As mentioned earlier, many others have written interpretations of this:

BUT, we would like to add that the Grand Cross is NOT the only pattern in this chart.  It is clearly the most striking of the patterns, but it is NOT the ONLY pattern.  We also have a Grand Earth Trine (opportunity!) and a Rosetta (alliances, but typically short-lived and a risk of treachery later).  We present the chart for the Grand Earth Trine (Pluto, Jupiter, Mercury) first.  We also note that Grand Water Trines are associated with the opportunity to make quite a bit of money, but we think this Grand Earth Trine (with Jupiter and Pluto involved) has that same ability, maybe even more so.  The next two weeks could be a rather large “money maker” for those with “eyes to see.”  Here is the chart:

2016-06-04 New Moon (Grand Trines)

Please do note that the North Node is involved in this Grand Trine, also, and that is all about “Karma” (again, reaping what you have sewn) as well as “hard work.”

Finally, we have the Rosetta.  Let us be clear: a Rosetta can accomplish a huge amount of work in a short time.  But the relationships are short-lived, and the potential for treachery exists.  We also note that one leg of the Grand Earth Trine is embedded in this Rosetta.  Here is the chart:

2016-06-04 New Moon (Rosetta)

The next two weeks will gave gotcha and glitches associated with the Grand Cross.  And you can focus on those, or you can focus on the opportunity that will come to you.  The choice is yours.
