Blue Monday?

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.

A Quick Note Regarding the Pulse Shooter

A Quick Note Regarding the Pulse Shooter

For those of you who are not regular readers, the analyses and predictions for Week 24 and Week 25 (i.e. “the quiet after a series of terrifying events” noted in the June 17th analysis) were written several weeks ago, LONG before the shooter at Pulse over the weekend, the stabbing of the 12 year old in France, or the shooter in Amarillo TX this week.  And, we did not QUITE get it right when we wrote the following about last Saturday (Week 24, written in late May / early June):

Today has Mars Septile Pluto, the aspect of karma for both warrior planets.  [emphasis added]  A very smart thing to do with this is to do something for a disabled veteran you know (or for disabled veterans in general).  This will benefit you in important ways that you cannot see yet.  Alternatively, you can do the same especially regarding any kind of “widows and orphans” fund for police or firefighters.

While we could be wrong, we suspect that if the shooter had been treated as a “disabled veteran” and some “kindness” (mental health care? at least a counselor of some kind?) had been shown to him, the possibility exists that the outcome might have been very, very different.  We are NOT saying that he was not unstable or dangerous.  We ARE saying that the danger he presented might could have been eliminated if someone had spoken up and provided mental health care for him.  Since he was a licensed security guard, passing gun control legislation would have done nothing whatsoever to have stopped this event.  Only an intervention such as a mental health intervention could have prevented it.  Until we fix our broken mental health system, and the “karma” related to how we care for those who have become unstable, these kinds of events will continue.

Gun control laws only provide a false sense that, somehow, we are “safe” because a law was passed.  But that is a “band-aid fix” that does not get to the root problem.  We suspect that, if guns were not available, the Pulse shooter would have resorted to explosives as Timothy McVeigh did and as “suicide bombers” in the Middle East continue to do so.  We would not be safe, not at al.  (See, also: West, TX.)  Gun control laws don’t help much with those…. 

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.”

Full Moon 2016-04-22 (Hard Rectangle)

Full Moon 2016-04-22 (Hard Rectangle)

For anyone who wants to check either upcoming or previous full moons or new moons, we offer pages that cover both categories of lunations for 2016. Here is a list of New Moons for 2016, and here is a list of Full Moons for 2016.

We note five patterns associated with this FM: Hard Rectangle, Thor’s Hammer, Hele, Kite(s), and T-Square(s).

We have been omitting T-Squares because they are still quite common when anything aspects the now dissolving Uranus / Pluto square (discussed extensively both elsewhere and on this site).  However, we now have continuing T-Squares involving Jupiter (Virgo), Saturn (Sagittarius), and Neptune (Pisces), and since this set involves other bodies and points (Nodes, Chiron, Hygeia, and Mars) we believe it is worth addressing this set of T-Squares as well.

This is a very “early” Moon-Scorpio/Sun-Taurus FM, and it is the day after Adolf Hitler’s birthday.  Entertainment figures Chyna and Prince died within the last 48 hours, and we would not be surprised to see another one (or more) go at this time.  To say the least, this energy is “tough.”

This period of time reminds us of the period circa January 8, 2016 with the death of David Bowie and Glenn Frey.  Bowie’s death was within 48 to 72 hours prior to the Capricorn New Moon of January 9, 2016.

[We may revise this blog post later to reflect other events that occur concurrent with the FM of 2016-04-22]

While I am not a numerologist (I am not certain how it works), I do note the following (for those time zones where the FM occurs April 22nd): (1) the day is a master number (22); (2) month + day is a higher order master number (44); and, depending on how you reduce numbers, year/month/day is also higher order (2016=7; + 04 -11; 11 + 22 = 33).  So, arguably, in different forms we have 22, 33, and 44.  (I am certain others will note this, and I expect those who claim numerology as their domain to have something to say about it.)

Let’s begin the astrological analysis of patterns with the Hard Rectangle, since it is the rarest of the patterns present (we believe “rare patterns” represent a sort of cosmic “punctuation mark”).

Here is the chart for the 2016-04-22 Full Moon, filtered for the Hard Rectangle:

2016-04-22 Full Moon (Hard Rectangle)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This pattern involves the Sun, Moon and Nodes (Rahu and Ketu to Vedic astrologers).  Many (most? all?) of the traditional astrologers do not like using the Nodes in aspects / patterns.  This is because the Nodes are points rather than actually bodies.  The Nodes are a function of the Earth’s orbital path relative to the Earth and are mathematically determined (as opposed to “heavenly bodies” which, at least in theory, can be observed).

So, whether or not you accept this pattern (or any other that uses the Nodes) depends on whether or not you believe the Nodes affect you.  If you do, then this is an unusually intense Full Moon (FM) because the Nodes (aka “Karma”) form a Hard Rectangle (a very energetic and often dangerous pattern) with the FM.  You can accomplish much at this time, despite the upcoming Mercury Retrograde (and other retrogrades) if you keep your focus by watching your temper.  Avoid dangerous people, places, and things (unless that is your job, and I expect that police, investigators, and intelligence agencies will be very busy at this time along with scientists who explore dangerous topics (venomous snakes, etc.)), and avoid BEING a dangerous person yourself.

Just in case you somehow did not get the previous message, a Thor’s Hammer pattern is also present.  This is a notoriously dangerous aspect, but, again, it can be channeled to get things done.  You know what to do: follow the prescription we just gave (stay focused; avoid temper / violence / explosions).

Here is the (same) chart, filtered for the Thor’s Hammer:

2016-04-22 Full Moon (Thor's Hammer)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

As you can see from this version of the chart, the North Node, Saturn, and the Sun form this pattern.  The early (“too early to tell”) Sun is at the Apex, with Saturn (“tests, trials, and tribulations) on one leg and the North Node (“hard karma”) on the other leg.  With so many retrogrades in play, we recommend that you avoid “banging your head” on projects that will not budge at this time and focus instead on the highest priority projects where you can make actual progress.  (You may also want to review your priorities at this time.)

We also have a Hele present, and it tells us contradictory messages!  One the one hand, with Sun/Moon in the “too early to tell” degrees, it tells us that there are some things (IMPORTANT things) that you do not yet know about the alliances you are about to form.  Are they organized crime?

And, if YOU are organized crime, then are they the undercover police that will finally seal your fate?

Yet, Scorpio-Taurus tells us that if you try to get out of this alliance “somewhere down the road,” then there will be hell to pay.  Be extremely careful with the new friends you choose at this time, and know that they may have far more power than you can possibly realize at this moment.

Here is the chart for the Hele:

2016-04-22 Full Moon (Hele)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Mercury / Vesta (together) is on one leg with the North Node (there it is again!), and Uranus and Saturn are on the other leg.  You will have to choose one or the other.

All of this sounds challenging, and it is.  But a ray of hope is present.  Kites (multiple, overlapping) are present in this chart, and for those that can see them (and harness them), powerful opportunities are present.

Here is the same chart, filtered for the kites:

2016-04-22 Full Moon (Kites)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Mercury and Pluto form this kite, along with the Nodes (again), so this opportunity will be present for one to three days, possibly longer as slow as Mercury is moving at this time.  Some time after the Mercury Retrograde station, it will open for a second “act” in the play.  But, if you really do want to seize this window of opportunity then you need to do it now.  The other variants will give you a chance to “clean up” things that result from Sun/Moon being in the “too early to tell” period.

Finally, we address the T-Squares.  They are a third pronouncement of the same kind of message that the Hard Rectangle and Thor’s Hammer bring: much energy, the potential for anger and violence, and great potential for accomplishment if the energy is properly funneled.

Here is the chart, filtered for the T-Squares:

2016-04-22 Full Moon (T-Square)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

More specifically, what is involved here are mutables (Planets in mutable signs), and long term planets are present in each sign that forms the T-Square (three of four mutable signs: Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces).

Virgo / Pisces focuses on the issues of work and play in general along with questions regarding attention to detail (does it help by identifying important issues or does cause harm by wasting time and other resources).  They also address healthcare, with Virgo focused on healthcare providers (nurses and physicians and similar) and Pisces focuses on the illness (and how to “heal” from it (including death)).

Sagittarius forms the apex of the T-Square (with the Malefics Mars and Saturn there, both retrograde), and we find that answers to these work/play isseus (or healthcare issues) are likely located in either higher education (Universities and similar) or the legal system.

The T-Squares (multiple, overlapping) provide guidance on where you should consider focusing your efforts at this time: work, play (or rest and recovery), health, healthcare, higher education, and the legal system.  Since we are dealing with mutables, we should be looking to “wrap up” current issues and move on to new ideas and new projects.

Mars Square Pluto 2015-12-06 (Yod)

First, we note that this is a shorter term Yod that follows immediately on the heels of longer term that has been in play since November 25th until yesterday.  This is a period about decisions, and longer term T-Squares may lead some people to make rash decisions that are poorly thought out.

Next, this is one of the most dangerous, if not “the” most dangerous, of aspects.  It is a bit longer term (Mars has a two year orbit, and Pluto has a 240 year orbit), so it can be felt in both the days leading up to it and the days following.  If you are reading this in the future (some time after 2015 has ended), please note that this aspect perfects just a few days after the San Bernardino mass shootings.  That is the problem with longer term aspects, the critical related event(s) almost never occur at perfection and often not “day of” but nearby instead.  The Paris shootings by an ISIS terror cell was only a few weeks ago, and could be related to this aspect also.

Still, we do not think the window of danger is over until, at a minimum, the day after the aspect has perfected.  In this case, consider allowing two or three days of “safety zone” if you can.

Here is the chart, filtered for the Yods:

2015-12-06 Mars Square Pluto (Yods)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This is an aspect that typically occurs twice in a two year period.  We say “typically” because retrogrades can cause it to occur more often under some circumstances.

T-Squares, by themselves, can fuel bad decision making and violence.  In this case, the Mars / Pluto aspect “loosely” interacts with the Uranus / Pluto squares (seven of them in play since 2012).  It is the kind of thing that make things, and people, “go boom.”  We present the same chart, filtered for T-Squares:

2015-12-06 Mars Square Pluto (T-Squares)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Please note the Mercury T-Square that interacts with the recent Mercury / Jupiter square (an amplifier of surrounding events).

We encourage our longer term readers to keep a journal and compare both the events of their life and current events to aspects to learn how to interpret those aspects.  In keeping with that, we present, next, a list of the perfections of Mars square Pluto from 2000 through 2030.  And, to see the surrounding aspects this month, click on this link for an Excel chart of Sunout aspects.  And, for an overview of patterns in November and December 2015, click this link.  If you are interested in Longer Term Forecasts (outer planets or “generational planets”), click here.

Astrological Chart and Analysis for San Bernardino Shootings 2015-12-02

Astrological Chart and Analysis for San Bernardino Shootings 2015-12-02

We have been analyzing disasters and shootings less lately in favor of forecasts and similar analysis.  Previously, we have produced a chart analysis for Adam Lanza, the West, TX Fertilizer plant explosion, the Orbital Sciences Antares Rocket explosion, the Philadelphia Amtrak wreck, the Marysville school shootings, and the Boston Marathon bombing.  That said, we will provide a chart and preliminary analysis of the San Bernardino shootings on December 2, 2015.  We note, also, that this attack comes only a few weeks after the massacre of 130 people in Paris by ISIS based terrorists.

Click here for our Calendar Page for Wednesday, December 2nd.  The event occurred two days before perfection of Mercury square Jupiter, an amplifier of either good will or bad intent.  For practical purposes, that aspect applies here.  The event also occurred four days before perfection of Mars square Pluto, perhaps the most dangerous of all aspects, and, again, for practical purposes that aspect applies here.  Saturn square Neptune, a very slow moving aspect that governs weeks and months, perfected for the first time (of three) on November 26th.  Again, that is so close (Saturn has a 28 year orbit; Neptune a 160 year orbit), that it applies here.  All of this, together, is a bit tough.

We present the chart, based on the reported time of 10:59 AM PST and filtered for T-Squares:

2015-12-02 San Bernardino Shootings (T-Square)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We count ten squares and four oppositions in that chart.  Frankly, that seems rather high.  But we think that the critically important events occurred earlier in the day, during this window:

We think that the critical events occurred in this window, that this was when the decisions were made that would mean “this was the day” that they had planned for.  And, within that window, we will hazard a guess that the critical turning point occurred at, or near, the entry of the Moon in to Virgo.  That yields this particular Thor’s Hammer chart:
2015-12-02 San Bernardino (Moon enters Virgo + TH)
[Click Image to Enlarge]
Note that (1) Moon had recently perfected a conjunction to Astraea (issues of justice), (2) Moon moved into Earth (Earth tends to lack compassion, refer to Adam Lanza chart as a comparison) and (3) we have a Thor’s Hammer (again, compare the Adam Lanza natal chart) that activates (a) Uranus and (b) Pluto (that pesky Uranus / Pluto square, again, that we keep talking about).  Also noteworthy: (1) Mars has just risen (and is in 12th house of religion (and delusions) and (2) Uranus (explosions, among other things) is setting.

Since this is a preliminary analysis, we will hold any further commentary until more information is available.  (Particularly, we would like birth information for the shooters, should that ever become available.)  For an alternative analysis, posted on Astrotheme, click here.  Another analysis is located here.  Astrology Weekly has a discussion located here.

We also recommend reviewing the surrounding aspects this month, available by clicking on this link for an Excel chart of Sunout aspects.  And, for an overview of patterns in November and December 2015, click this link.  If you are interested in Longer Term Forecasts (outer planets or “generational planets”), click here.

 

2015-12-02 Moon Square Saturn T-Squares (mutable and others)

2015-12-02 Moon Square Saturn T-Squares (mutable and others)

Moon Square Saturn happens about once a month and, although it tends to be an unpleasant aspect, it is a fairly ordinary (very nearly boring) aspect.  This month, however, the Moon interacts with Saturn square Neptune (still in full force since the first perfection on November 26th), and a T-Square forms.  Other T-Squares are active (including Mars / Pluto / Uranus), and, so, this time the aspect is quite a bit more unpleasant than usual.  As is always true, the potential to harness this unpleasant energy to “get something done” exists if you are elevated enough / smart enough to use it that way.  Here is the chart, filtered for T-Squares:

2015-12-02 Mutable T-Square (and other T-Squares)[Click Image to Enlarge]

This is late night stuff for most people, so unless something nasty happens like a hot water heater problem or an auto accident, most of us should be mostly safe as long as we do not “go looking for trouble.”

That said, California might see some nastiness at this time (significant traffic events?), particularly those in Los Angeles.  (Could be an unusually unpleasant rush hour event.)

While these are not ordinarily very common, they seem to be common lately and correspond to a period of much “unrest” in the world.

The BIG TH clears out after August 10th, but numerous others come and go this month.  Noteworthy is the LONG one from August 14th until August 23rd.

Mars Trine Chiron 2015-07-26 and Thor’s Hammer Key

2015-07-26 Mars Trine Chiron

Let’s face it, “Mars Trine Chiron” is what some people call a “bad mental image.”  Think of King Leonidas and Forrest Gump together for an afternoon.  Imagine, if you will, that neither one can “win.”  In fact, we are told, supposedly they are getting along just fine.  It just does not fit.  But, it is happening the morning of Sunday, July 26, 2015.  It is Mars Trine Chiron.

We note the presence of TWO interlocking Thor’s Hammers (God’s Fist), what we have called in the past a “Thor’s Hammer Key.”  All of this together seems pretty scary, particularly mixed into the same weekend as the Venus Retrograde and Mars Square Uranus.

Here is the chart for Mars Trine Chiron, filtered for the Thor’s Hammers:

Mercury Square Neptune and Mars Quincunx Saturn 2015-06-23

The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly.  That should be the title for today.

The Good: if you are a poet or photographer or in some similar field, today may present some of your greatest inspirations.  Gentle Creatives are favored today.

The Bad: if you are a police officer, drunk, or drug addict, your misconduct today will not be tolerated.  “Just doing my job” and similar excuses just will not work anymore.  No choke holds that kill mentally ill homeless guys, no shooting of 12 year olds who have toy guns, none of that will play any more.  Just don’t do it!

The Ugly: some people will ignore the previous warning, and they will learn very hard lessons.  If you are a drunk or drug addict, stay home.  Don’t drive.  Don’t go out.  Don’t get in bar fights.  STAY HOME!  And if the police bust down your door anyway, do not give them ANY excuse to mistreat you.  If you are law enforcement, well, we already warned you ONCE!  Weren’t you listening?  (If not, then you will get what you deserve!)  To everyone: BE NICE!

If you are an alcoholic / drug addicted police officer, then your dirty little secret may be about to become public knowledge.  (This includes steroid abuse.)  It is an especially bad day for you.

Anyone with a camera tends to be favored today.  (But, still, be careful!)

The poetry, alcohol, drug, photography, video, art, whatever thing flows from yet another Mercury Square Neptune, the third of a series tied to the recent Mercury Retrograde that completed.  And Mars Quincunx Saturn occurs less than a half hour later, making a mess of anything involving violence and authority.  (Military and intelligence agencies will also likely be affected.)

We are basing the following analysis on the Mercury Square Neptune (exact) chart.

The Yod (“Finger of God”) in play yesterday is still in full force today.  WE HAVE A CHOICE in how we act today!

Here is the chart:

2015-06-23 Mercury Square Neptune Yod

[Click Image to Enlarge]

For those not willing to listen to what the universe is telling us, some HARD lessons are coming.  The multiple Huber “Learning” Trinagles tell us this:

HLT 1’s:

2015-06-23 Mercury Square Neptune Huber 1

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Note that the above version of the chart has TWO HLT 1’s.  Here are the HLT 2’s:

2015-06-23 Mercury Square Neptune Huber 2

[Click Image to Enlarge]

With this many Huber Learning Triangles in play, the message is clear: some people will be learning “lessons” today.  (It does not have to be YOU!)

Let us note that a sliver of an opportunity may present itself (mostly favoring fire signs and maybe air signs) with a so-called “almost” kite:

2015-06-23 Mercury Square Neptune Kite Almost (2)

[Click Image]

Fleeting and unstable alliances may present themselves, as indicated by a Rosetta.  (Just know that these “fair weather friends” will not stick with you for long.)

Write poetry, take pictures, and be nice!
