Christmas Day (that evening), Mars enters Aquarius and enters mutual reception with Uranus. That means they can “trade places,” and it amplifies each of them.  Mars (in low form) is violence and war.  Uranus (in low form) is accidents.

Sun is square Uranus (further activating Mars / Uranus), and Moon is conjunct Jupiter. Jupiter is the great amplifier (perhaps “Great Amplifier” would be better), and the Moon activates Jupiter’s amplification of events (such as Mars / Uranus) here.

The current snowstorm / blizzard could take a surprising turn and may deepen by this time.  With Uranus, anything goes.  But, just in case that is not enough, we note that the Moon is doing more than merely conjoining Jupiter, it is activating the Focused Yod associated with the 2012 Solstice.

Here is an horary version of the chart:

This will be an “exciting” time for more than a few of us.  Here is the U.S. Map at time of entry of Mars into Aquarius:

We note that Europe is not particularly active EXCEPT the Pluto line through Ireland and the Mars line through Italy.

We expect Christmas Day to be “interesting” this year.  Please have a happy and safe one if at all possible!

Mars sextiles Uranus on New Year’s Eve, a week later, bringing a new version of the same energy on that date:

Winters Solstice 2012 (aka “The End of the World”)

Here is the Winters Solstice 2012 (aka “The End of the World”) chart (set in Plano, of course):


[Click to Enlarge]

First of all, we have written about this elsewhere.  The most important patterns appear to be (1) the Focused Yod that occurs at the time of the solstice, and (2) the Diamond that happens fifteen hours later.  To learn more about those, click here.

For an alternative version of the chart, as well as a global Solar Map, click here.  But, by far the most popular page on this site discussing the 2012 Solstice is “Saturn in Scorpio: The Power of Mutual Reception.”

We have always questioned, on this site, the idea that the world will “end” with this solstice.  We do not believe that.

However, we have entered a period where serious questions will be asked of government, particularly intelligence agencies that strip citizens of privacy (Scorpio / Pluto), and of (large) financial institutions (Capricorn / Saturn) and their abuses (giving huge bonuses with bailout money then foreclosing on the citizens who should have been protected).

All this is scary, and it looks like it is getting worse.

But, something even larger is looming, and that something just might be the End of the World As We Know It.  We are a bit like the frog being cooked.  And, what is cooking us is global warming.  Many people have said global warming is a hoax, like this video from five years ago in 2007.  What do y0u think?

We note this video about the Greenland ice melt published 2012.  It is the kind of thing Al Gore was talking about in 2006 when he made An Inconvenient Truth.

Where are we headed?  Difficult to say.  But, let’s hope we can keep the Internet.  It has glued us together in ways never thought of before.  It might be what can save us.  But, as noted above, we have written of this elsewhere and have no significant changes to our earlier commentary at “Saturn in Scorpio: The Power of Mutual Reception” and the other links mentioned above.

Here are a few Solar Maps:

First, we start with Australia / New Zealand.  This is a particularly active area at the time of the Solstice with the Node Line (fate or karma) touching Brisbane.  Mars and Saturn have crossing lines inland from the northern coast.  We think Australia and New Zealand are of increasing importance, globally, and (if this Solstice is as significant as some say) this map tends to confirm that.

We will publish a few more maps, and some more commentary, in the next few days as the Solstice approaches.

Earthquakes in Mexico (2012)

While briefly reviewing the email from GrandTrines readers, and conducting some other brief research, I came across a link from Jude Cowell’s Stars Over WashingtonNeptune Cafe on 2012.  If you are interested in the 2012 predictions, then you might want to read that.

In that piece, the authors (Neptune Cafe) claimed that (based on their reading of a popular book by Jenkins) May 20, 2012 is an important date, and the authors (of Neptune Cafe) stated that “we could suggest that Mexico City will be destroyed by a violent earthquake.”

Well, Mexico City is alive (but possibly not well due to the crime waves of recent years).  And, we point out here that Jenkins is a target of skeptics.  Further, we do not adopt a “doomsday” point of view of 2012 on this blog although we do believe that a huge societal transformation has been in progress at least since World War II and probably since the American Revolution.  Even most skeptics would agree with that.  Unlike skeptics, however, we believe this transformation is part of a cosmic calendar rather than “mere chance.”  And, to adopt a trite expression, we believe “the best is yet to come.”

However, the following is worthy of note: (1) a magnitude 7.6 earthquake shook Mexico City at the time of the Vernal Equinox of 2012 and (2) a smaller 5.4 earthquake shook the city again at the time of the Autumnal Equinox of 2012.  (In case that link breaks, see here or here.)

Could we see a similar event again at the Winter’s Solstice of 2012?

Full Moon of April 28, 2010

First of all, many of us will be impelled to action by the impending conjunction of the retrograde Mercury with the Sun at this time.  We will feel that “things” are overdue, and that we must act.  A real danger of acting rashly exists here.  Act, to be sure, but act wisely.

For the details of this, check the midpoint tree of Mercury on the Wheel and Data page, shown later in this article.

Full Moon Activates the 2012 Solstice Focused Yod

This Taurus Sun / Scorpio Moon Full Moon occurs at 8 Taurus / Scorpio, which is an activating point for the 2012 Solstice Focused Yod.  Events that happen on or around this time will tend to have long term consequences, and that is confirmed by the final Saturn / Uranus opposition of that series with Saturn / Uranus in the final degrees of Virgo / Pisces.

Unquestionably this is a signal of some kind for the financial markets, but what kind?  Some say a recovery; some say a “Bear Rally.”  In this case, the entry of Pluto into Capricorn a year ago signals the beginning of a long period of what might be called “Fiscal Conservatism.”  Pluto is related to investigations, and Capricorn is the sign of finances and financial markets.  Deep, probing investigations into the financial services industry is, or should be, the norm. The Saturn / Uranus opposition series has been the herald, and the astrological avatar, of the recession.  That opposition series also signal a need for evaluation of existing structures (Saturn) and possible change (Uranus).

Hele of Full Moon of April 28th

This Hele appears to be active and important at the time of this Full Moon:

Since Hele is a new pattern, this is difficult to interpret.  However, it appears to at least potentially involve the severe anger of betrayal (Pallas) aligned with Venus (Art & Beauty or Finances) in relation to Neptune (Deception), Moon (Full), and Saturn (Authority).  An “explosion” (not literal) regarding Goldman-Sachs, Madoff, etc. may be about to “come to a head” today.  A pimple appears waiting to be popped.

Venus in a Yod with Ceres and Pluto v. The Full Scorpio Moon

That said, the current economic condition is about as good as it will get.  It may or may not have peaked yet, but the exuberance of the preceding twenty years is no longer warranted.  The Venus / Cerus inconjunct confirms that some (many) will be irrationally exuberant over the current rally.  Venus is also inconunct Ceres, and Ceres and Pluto are conjunct each other.

In fact, Venus is in a Yod with Ceres and Pluto on one side, and the Moon on the other.  Ceres / Pluto conjunct could be called the “I want to have my cake and eat it, too” aspect.  You cannot have both, but that is exactly what we feel.  A decision must be made, based on the conjunction alone.  But, Yods emphasize decisions, and we are almost never satisfied with the results (from a hindsight vantage point).

To best understand the energy of this full moon, read about Ceres and Pluto here.

In this case, we must make a decision about decisions.  What issue will we focus upon?  If we focus upon a Ceres/Pluto viewpoint, then we will be faced with the challenge of “having our cake and eating it too.”  If we pick the Moon, then we are picking a Full Moon with the Sun Conjunct Retrograde Mercury.  This means that we must double check everything and look at old projects we had discarded.  In the end, we will have to balance investigation and intrigue (the Scorpio Moon) with art, beauty, and productivity (Taurus).  Investigation is necessary, but investigation (alone) WILL NOT GET THINGS DONE.  No matter how we approach things today, if the 2012 Solstice is important, then we will see today (and this week) as a turning point in our lives.

On a more personal note, this is a tough time for anyone who starts a diet.  Certainly it CAN be done; Pluto helps but only through pain or traumatic events.  The Ceres (giving into the temptation to eat what you want) is far easier and far more pleasant.  All that said, here is the Full Moon Chart:
