The Autumnal Equinox of 2014 occurs on September 22nd at 9:29 CDT this year (Plano, TX).  (In other areas, such as the United Kingdom, it will occur on September 23rd in the early morning hours (0229 GMT)).  It is followed two days later by a new moon (Libra / Aries).  We will cover both in this entry.

First, the chart (set in Plano TX):

Autumnal Equinox 2014 September

[Click to Enlarge]

We note that the Moon is very old and (predictably) near the Sun.  Venus is between them and would be “besieged” if the Sun and Moon were malefics (which they are not).  This places Venus on or near the mid-point of Sun and Moon and is arguably a favorable placement.  Moon is slightly past an opposition to Chiron and and an earlier opposition to Neptune (both in Pisces) earlier than that.

Before we go further with our analysis, let us make clear that you should wrap up certain kinds of business (only you know the precise details) before this change in the sign of the Sun.  This period is definitely about clearing out and letting go.  Given the nature of the Full Moon (FM) earlier this month, this may mean fully releasing any remaining hopes of clinging to whatever path you chose to NOT follow when the time of the FM offered you a choice (or series of choices).  Whatever it is that you chose NOT to do, it is GONE now.  Trying to preserve it or “hang on” to it will only cause you problems and pain.  CLEAR THINGS OUT.

Some of you had a “fling” earlier in September when Venus opposed Neptune (probably the weekend of September 12th).  If you had a painful awakening later (Venus opposite Chiron), and that romance was ill-chosen, then CUT IT OFF.  Cut your losses.  Do not string that person along.  And if you lost money on the romance (or venture), then do NOT think for a minute you are likely to get your money back.  File the pictures you took in your scrapbook.  Move forward.

If you are leaving a job at this time, start your start day for the new job AFTER the New Moon (next chart).  Take a little time off to regenerate.

Looking for an alternative version of this chart?  PlanetWaves.com has one located here.  Another alternative is located here.

Here is the United States map.  We note that Northern Nevada has an unusually high number of lines passing through it.  (Looking for a place to spend the Equinox that should be transformative?  Try Las Vegas or Reno (Reno is slightly stronger in this particular case) for Fall Equinox 2014!  Note, though, that we said “transformative” and did not further qualify that statement as either “good” or “bad.”)

We note that Los Angeles and Southern California are affected, also, but the effect is not as strong as in Northern Nevada.  With Uranus (Prometheus) on the Ascendant, we would not be surprised to see huge gains/losses at the gambling tables.  (But, anything goes!)

Here is the New Moon chart (a few days later):

A few of you will ignore the the earlier recommendation that “this period is definitely about clearing out and letting go.”  In that case, some of those who ignore that advice will have a “reminder,” possibly an unpleasant reminder, to clear out the old.  Given the position of the Sun/Moon conjoined in the first degree of Libra, this will likely have one of two outcomes.  The first will be a potential for violence.  The damn will burst.  (This depends on the charts of the individuals involved.)  The other outcome is the extreme opposite: prolonged negotiations that seem to go nowhere resulting in “a death by a thousand blows.”  You will WANT progress but be unable to attain it, stuck by the lingering garbage of the previous period.  (This could be in the form of a bankruptcy, possibly for some of those gambling in Las Vegas or Reno.)

A few of you, wisely, will decide to relocate at this time.

While any given chart, or pair of charts, contains many potential “lessons,” the “lessons” of these two are clear: CLEAN HOUSE (literally and figuratively) before this time arrives.

Chances are good we will add updates between “now” (the time of the initial posting) and the time of the events.  (This has become our practice in the last year or two.)

Edit: A few key aspects (and when they perfect) in this period:

Wednesday September 10th: Venus Opposite Neptune

Friday September 12th: Mercury Quincunx Chiron

Sunday September 14th: Venus Trine Pluto

Wednesday September 17th: Venus Opposite Chiron

Sunday September 21st: Venus Sextile Saturn; Mars Square Neptune

Monday September 22nd Pluto Direct Station (within two hours of Equinox)

Tuesday September 23rd: Jupiter Quincunx Chiron!  (About eight hours prior to the New Moon)

Thursday September 25th: Jupiter Trine Uranus

This is an active and complex time.  The Mercury / Jupiter / Chiron quincunxes indicate yet another “fork in the road.”  Venus is in a number of aspects, and this emphasizes in a general way an examination of values.

More specific situations may emerge: careers in the arts may be launched or reach turning points during this period.  Great works of art may be produced.  (See, also, our entry about The Quintile Kite of October 9th 2014.)  If you have any interest in art, if you have thought about the possibility of being a professional artist, this will be your chance to “jump ship” and take on that challenge.)

Children born during this period will tend to see alternative viewpoints; they may have a tendency to break with tradition because they tend to embrace multiple perspectives.  They will face a bit of a curse in that they are never quite satisfied.  (But, this may drive them to produce great accomplishments!)

Jude Cowell, over at Stars Over Washington, has an interesting analysis of the equinox.

Summer Solstice 2014 (June 21, 2014)

To my regular readers: sorry for being mostly absent for the last year or so.  “Life” has been very busy.  Changes are happening that should permit me to be present here a bit more.  To Evie Rose and a few other regular readers: I will address your requests some time this summer. Also: I am moving to using an open source tool for my screenshots (Greenshot: http://getgreenshot.org) so the possibility exists that the charts might look a bit different.

Here is the chart for Summer Solstice, 2014:

2014-06-20 15_26_58-SummerSolstice

[Click to Enlarge]

The Summer Solstice is generally a pleasant time for most people.  Of course, if you were born in the days near the Winter Solstice, around December 21st, you always feel a bit of tension at this time of year.  (Your birthday signifies the potential of things to come, and the Summer Solstice usually represents the best that you can hope for this year.  If you missed it, then you have to wait for next year.  Thus you feel some bit of tension.)  Similarly, those who have birthdays near March 21st and September 21st feel a bit of tension at this time of year.

The Sun and Mercury have recently spoken, but Mercury is retrograde so we will have new messages come to us after Mercury turns direct circa June 30th.  Early July will bring something for everyone, and either the Independence Day celebration (United States) will bring something or the few days afterward will.  The time around July 7th, give or take a day or two, is particularly interesting as we see the Sun forming a T-Square with the ongoing Uranus / Pluto square that has been in play for several years now.  This will stir some to action, and for those who are not naturally impulsive then maybe it should.  Roughly two weeks after that, the Sun will conjoin Jupiter as part of the Grand Water Trine that will break up shortly after that later this year.  For some, this window will be the last opportunity to accomplish something of major importance.  Only you yourself can know what it is, but when you see it this month you should know that you may never see this opportunity again in your lifetime.

Here are the Solar Maps.  The “Gulf South” (aka “Gulf Coast”) of the United States looks particularly interesting, particularly the triangle formed by New Orleans, Jacksonville FL, and Miami.

We note that Washington DC, and that general corridor, has Pluto on the Descendant (7th house cusp).  In this sense, we expect little if any relief from geopoltical struggles.  Indeed, they may worsen.  We especially expect a high degree of activity involving the intelligence community at this time.

Europe is comparatively quiet, with most of the “action” found off of the coast of Portugal.  Eastern Europe seems to be getting a break from what has been a tense situation though it may be an unusually hot summer for them:

 Australia and New Zealand are mostly quiet with the exception of Darwin (which continues to be highly activated).  Brisbane also has a Saturn line dead center through it; while this is good for academics, most of the rest of the population will feel some period of difficulty.  This could be a period of economic difficulty.  Given that this is winter for this part of the world, the Saturn line for Brisbane could signal a winter storm for the coast of Australia where Brisbane is located.  (I would not be surprised to see a winter storm on the coast closest to Antartica, although one need not be an astrologer to have a hunch that this could be so at this time of the year.)

Finally, we have the Pacific Rim.  We note many complex interactions here, and we will leave interpretation of this to other astrologers.  [Subject to a possible update later.]  But, much is happening here:

We note that, as is often true, the Phillipines, Malaysia, and Indonesia are particularly active with many lines exerting influence.   The same is true for the parts of China closest to Japan. Although here in Texas not much news arrives from this part of the world, I can be certain that a great deal is happening.

April 2014 Full Moon

Here is the Full Moon chart for April 2014, less than a week prior to the Grand Cross alignment of April 20/21:

We note that this is a lunar eclipse (one in a series).  Also, this is the controversial Full Moon associated with the “Blood Moon Prophecy” which has been in the news lately.

Grand Cross of January 7th and Edward Snowden

We are entering an “interesting” (and dangerous) period.  What will come is presaged by the Grand Cross of January 7th:

Grand Cross Jan 7th 1-6-2014 11-46-18 PM[Click to Enlarge]

As you can see, the main players are Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto.  The Uranus / Pluto square series has been discussed elsewhere on this site and on other sites.  We point out that adding Mars / Jupiter to the mix is a particularly powerful activation.  I tend to think of the Uranus / Pluto combination as a bit like a spark looking for a fuel / air mixture to make something go “boom.”  Mars / Jupiter tends to be a fuel / air mixture.

When this is in the form of a spark plug igniting gasoline in the cylinder of an automobile (or other vehicle), then the combination is useful.  But when it is a spark in a coal mine that makes coal dust go boom, this is very bad.

Here is the chart again (in a different form):

Grand Cross Jan 7th (reg chart) 1-6-2014 11-46-18 PM[Click to Enlarge]

Here is the U.S. Map:

US Map Grand Cross 1-6-2014 11-58-56 PMAlso, this pattern may mark an important turning point in the ongoing story of the NSA and Edward Snowden.  Using the data from this version of Edward Snowden’s chart, namely the June 21, 1983 / 0442 EDT / Elizabeth City NC data, yields a chart that shows (1) a Scorpio Moon applying (loosely) to an opposition to Algol, (2) Mars Conjunct North Node in first house, and (3) Sun conjunct Betelgeuse.

His 8th house (house of spies, intelligence agencies, and assassinations) is intercepted, and the ruler of the 8th (Saturn) is conjunct Pluto (planet of spies, intelligence agencies, and assassinations) in the 5th house (of speculation, luck, and gambling).

Here is his chart using the “Horary” page from Solar Fire 8:

Edward J Snowden 1-7-2014 12-14-37 AM[Click to Enlarge]

A turning point is coming for him soon (this month, January).  Sadly, chances for confinement look pretty strong for him.

But confinement will escalate his stature as a folk hero.  (The authorities will make a terrible mistake if they succeed in doing that.  Public perception will be a bit like looking at Darth Vader attempting to strike down Obi-Wan Kenobi when the supposedly feeble old man gently states “If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.”)

Do not be surprised to hear some compare him to Nelson Mandela should Snowden be imprisoned.

If the government REALLY wants to punish him, they should assist him in writing a NY Times bestseller and going on a really LONG book tour.  (Rumor has it that those book tours can be rather strenuous. 🙂  )

Kite of January 5, 2014

A window of opportunity will open for some on January 5th.  In particular, a Kite will occur:

Kite of Jan 5 1-3-2014 12-59-16 AM[Click to Enlarge]

A kite is a kind of a super-charged Grand Trine, and this one taps the Grand Water Trine of 2013 which continues to persist into 2014 (although it will begin breaking up).  This particular kite is stronger than many (which have the Moon somewhere in them which makes them comparatively unstable).  With the Sun in opposition to Jupiter, some will overspend, overeat, and overdo.  This will be to their detriment.  But others will greatly benefit during this period, particularly the prudent people who can focus themselves appropriately.  (With the Sun in Capricorn, the key to harvesting the beneficial energy of this event is self-discipline.)

Here is the U.S. Map.  Based on this map, I would not be surprised to see this energy manifest as a winter storm (with those who have properly prepared benefiting from their preparations).  Since Hercules is here (as I write this), I have to wonder if this means another storm will be coming behind Hercules?  (If so, it looks like the Rocky Mountains may be hit very hard.)
