[This article is LONG, “tl;dr” for most of you. But, some of you might like it.]

Whether or not I will perform another analysis on this topic (of Bonnie and Clyde, the ambush, and related personalities) is an open question. Sometimes even with an intent to continue, work remains unfinished.
In this entry, we will explore some basics about the death chart for “Bonnie and Clyde,” meaning Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, bank robbers in the early 1930’s ambushed on May 23, 1934 somewhere near Arcadia, Louisiana or Gibsland, probably between the two on or near Highway 80.

A Few Notes

I start with several notes.

First, the ambush by six gunmen, “law enforcement,” was led by Frank Hamer.

“[T]he police knew that Bonnie and Clyde didn’t hesitate to shoot their way out of trouble, and had loaded up on guns accordingly. They were ready to kill, and Bonnie and Clyde never fired a shot.” [emphasis added]

Source :

General Comments

I performed a search but could not find support for this statement: “Historically, the family of Frank Hamer, notably his widow, has been litigious / acrimonious regarding any questions of the actions of Frank or the ‘posse’ at the ambush of Bonnie and Clyde.”

In reality, I researched this topic (Bonnie and Clyde) a few years ago and found webpages that said almost exactly the same thing a few years ago. They seem to have disappeared, or the search engines have buried them. Therefore, I do not have the support that I like to have to make such an assertion.

What I CAN assert is this: “The highly publicized shootout brought Hamer the sort of widespread attention he despised. He said he would not attend the proposed Hamer-Gault Hero Day in Austin, and turned down all media offers to share his story of the Bonnie and Clyde investigation with the public.”

Source :

AND, going “out on a limb,” I can assert that, nearly two decades before the ambush, Hamer threatened a state representative: “And so, when [Hamer] came under investigation Hamer used the same tactics to defend himself. In December 1918, Hamer approached State Rep. José T Canales, asking for the name of the ‘[expletive]’ who had accused Hamer and other Rangers of abusing him near Rio Grande City. Hamer warned Canales to stop collecting cases of Ranger abuse, threatening, ‘If you don’t stop that you are going to get hurt.’


AND, according to one source : “the Hamer family were no fans of the classic Arthur Penn movie. I knew that they had been greatly hurt and angered by the unfair and malicious characterization of their father at the expense of romanticizing and glorifying the road killers known as Bonnie and Clyde.”

Source :

The first source seems slightly negative but mostly neutral (law enforcement routinely maintains the “blue wall of silence,” not just Hamer), the second is quite negative (other parts of the source are more negative than the portion I excerpted), and the third is positive, verging on glowing.

Death Sentence by Ambush

As much as I can, I will try to be neutral so that you can decide for yourself. But, to be clear about my own biases, I have long thought that a cover-up happened (even with the open admission of an ambush, a murder by anyone’s standards.) (But I think the same regarding Lincoln, Huey Long, George Patton, and JFK. Frankly, I do not trust the government.)

Consider : “Common aggravating factors include: The defendant laid in wait (waited and ambushed) the victim.” Police do have “limited immunity” and so forth, but in a day and time where Officer Chauvin killed George Floyd by putting a knee on his neck (a dangerous move but arguably one not intended to cause death), if we had cell phone video footage of the B&C ambush, my guess is that we would at least see grand jury hearings come out of it.

Maybe the problem is that the event happened in 1934. And, I am left wondering, just how many people out there would turn back the clock to “the good ole days” given a chance. (Shudder.)

Let us be clear: Bonnie and Clyde were ruthless serial killers who “murdered at least nine police officers and four civilians.” [But, John Douglas, who founded the FBI BAU, would not coin the term “serial killer” for at least four more decades.]

Source :

Three Points

I am not painting Bonnie and Clyde as angels or “folk heroes.” That is not my point. (They were ruthless killers, no doubt about it.) More specifically, I have two points with this article : (1) to explore a REMARKABLE death chart of famous criminals killed by ambush by law enforcement (at least one of the law enforcement had threatened a state representative) and (2) to question the narrative that we have been given, one that is “fuzzy” from the outset.

And, if I had a hidden third point it would be this : to COMMEND officers such as Chief Maris Herold of the Boulder Police Department, as well as the members of her department, who were able to capture a dangerous murderer, a spree killer who had killed ten, without killing the suspect or any further loss of life. Without capture of suspects, our chances of identifying factors that precipitated the killings approach zero, at least any that are based on subsequent interviews or assessments.

AND, “due process” is a critically important pillar in our society. Ambushes on a country road on a spring morning are NOT due process.

OK : Four points!

Jeffrey Dahmer

Before we go any futher, the date here caught my eye. The position of the Sun is REMARKABLY close to that of the Jeffrey Dahmer natal chart (1 Gemini on May 21st). I will not duplicate that chart here or dig into it, presenting links instead. But, consider the possibility that 1 Gemini is malefic.

Death Chart

Similar to the Atlanta Shooter Chart and the Boulder CO Shooter Chart, this is a death chart and it has “the ruler of the eighth in the tenth.” In this case, the eighth house cusp is in Aquarius, and the modern ruler of Aquarius is Uranus. Uranus is in the tenth house of this chart in Aries. This points out that the first Uranus return of this chart has occurred. Since Uranus is about “surprises” (and ambushes in murders), we consider it to be particularly important here. Maybe the passage of eighty four years, along with the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Botham Jean will give all of us hope that homicidal violence by “police officers” will be halted. Non-lethal means are available for many situations, but, except for tasers, are almost never used. That needs to change.

But, this is a death chart, and “ambush” is emphasized by the role of Uranus.

Edit : Somehow, the first time around, I missed that Uranus in this chart is in the “Anaretic Degree.” The Anaretic Degree indicates “fate” or “karma,” something that can no longer continue. A change must happen. Last year, in 2020, I wrote about this (March 18th through 19th of 2020: Sun in Pisces, Anaretic and Saturn in Capricorn, Anaretic) about the time the “Toilet Paper Panic of 2020” was under way.

[Edit continues: ] As I think about this, both the ambush of B&C as well as Uranus leaving Aries (a bit more than eighty four years ago), I can see the “shift”: Bonnie and Clyde were slightly more modern (automatic weapons) versions of Old West bank robbers in an era where news via telegraphy had given way to broadcast radio and travel by passenger rail was giving way to the early incarnations of automobiles.

[Edit continues: ] Thinking about it, by the time the movie was made and released in 1968, radio was yielding to television, and automobiles had transformed from the Model A into the Mustang and Camaro (among others). Another shift was underway, and we knew it. Many thought the laser would be a weapon (rather than the foundation technology on which fiber optic based broadband), and many of us suspected that the replacement of the vacuum tube by transistor heralded another major shift. With smart phones and the Internet, another one has come to pass as Uranus traversed Aries again, entering Taurus again. The Pandemic has loosely replicated aspects of the Great Depression, and, collectively, we continue to struggle against these circumstances. Is World War III waiting for us?

Rectification and Timing

Timing is in question in this chart. Apparently, the shooters (law enforcement) waited TWO HOURS before any transport of the two people they shot was attempted. Why? Service times by ambulances in urban areas by the late twentieth century that exceeded eleven minutes were considered “long.” Granted, this was rural Northern Louisiana in 1934, but TWO HOURS? What was going on? Were the “lawmen” waiting for the mortally wounded to die a lingering death so that all possibility of testimony in subsequent hearings would be eradicated?

In modern settings, that alone would be murder. In many (most?) jurisdictions, once deadly force has been used, and once the threat has been neutralized (remember, Bonnie and Clyde did not fire even a SINGLE shot!), a duty to render aid becomes in force. (This is not true in ALL jurisdictions.)

See, also :


Rectifying this chart has been difficult. Some reports claim that the ambush was “shortly after sunrise.” While that does put the Sun in the 12th house (of “self-undoing”), it is not a good chart for this. A later time, between 8 AM and 8:30 AM, is better. I call these charts #1 and #2

Another report claimed the ambush started near “9:15 AM.” I do not believe that either. By the time that chart was in play, the ambush was over. I call the 9:15 AM chart “Chart #3.”

A rectified chart for 9:15 AM, putting the time significantly earlier at 8:58, looks right. This is also labeled “Chart #3” though, arguably, this chart is “Chart #4.”

We will explore why chart #4 looks correct in more detail later. For now, this chart has (1) Venus conjunct the Part of Fatality (AND close to the top of the chart, the powerful “MC” position (Midheaven)); (2) Pluto in the 12th house near the ascendant (“angular”); and (3) (if this time is correct) Jupiter (growth, expansion) is on the 4th House Cusp (“IC,” the “bed,” grave, or final resting place) and (4) as mentioned previously, the ruler of the eighth in the tenth.

Here is the chart (in Horary format) filtered for the strongest aspects (most precise):

Sun and Moon (“the Lights“) are both PEREGRINE in this chart. Noel Tyl wrote : “When the Sun or Moon is peregrine, we have a core development issue focus: I like to say that the individual learns very soon in life that he or she is basically untethered.” In this sense, the Sun and Moon are excellent significators for Clyde (Sun) and Bonnie (Moon).

Peregrine planets are usually viewed as “thieves” (Bonnie and Clyde! Robbers!). A more enlightened view argues (as Tyl wrote) they are “untethered,” not quite connected to our culture or world. And that, too, was true of this pair.

Born in a different place and time, they might have lived entirely different lives. But, in the early twentieth century in the south, Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana, their destinies seem fixed, poor whites with little opportunity trapped by the Great Depression in “The South.” They were not Jean Valjean, but their circumstances did affect them.

Peregrine planets, the Lights no less, were their emblems.

Mystic Rectangle, Star of David, Kites, and Grand Trines

Solar Fire failed to find an obvious “Star of David” in this chart, something that disappoints me. It also did not detect a Thor’s Hammer in a recent full moon chart. I know this because Rick Levine of StarIQ did notice that Thor’s Hammer and commented on it. (I like his work.)

This version of the chart is filtered for Grand Trines, but it also shows the Kites and Star of David. For some people, this would have been an amazing opportunity (for things other than ambushes).

The “Star of David” pattern is rare. Winter Solstice of 2012 saw one many hours after perfection of the Solstice, and a few others have manifested since then (but not many). This chart has one, and it brings many planets “together” at the time of this event. Again, we would expect this to be benevolent. Bonnie Elizabeth Parker had written poetry, including a poem mentioning her own death in a manner similar to this.

Is this what she wanted with her short life? The fame has been enduring.

A Star of David (and almost always a Mystic Rectangle) brings Kites (“opportunity”) which, themselves, include Grand Trines. These are all part of the patterns we have discussed so far, so asking the question seems needless. But, “was this [somehow?] benevolent?”

If so, how? (Or, are we reading these patterns completely WRONG?)

Part of the Mystic Rectangle includes Astraea (law and law enforcement) which is opposite Mercury (motor vehicles, among other things).

Note that Jupiter at the 4th House cusp (“the grave”) is part of the MR.

Astraea (law and law enforcement) aspects six (6) objects AND the nodes (fate) and MC.

Mystic Rectangles are rare and generally treated as benevolent though an argument could be made that this one was malefic. Which do you think?

5th Harmonics

This chart has TWO golden yods. Those are rare, rare in the sense that a Mystic Rectangle or Star of David is rare, but this chart has two. We have seen an argument that they can be related to an “abuse of power.” Is this what we see here? One abuse of power by Bonnie and Clyde met by the abuse of power by an ambush by police?

One Golden Yod has Juno at its apex (trust and betrayal) and Sun and South Node (the “negative karma” of repeating the behavior of many lifetimes). (Did Clyde Barrow make a decision that led the pair to their deaths?)

The other has Pluto (death, especially by assassinations, especially by government agents of some kind, particularly “spies” but also police) at the apex and Saturn / Hygeia on one leg and Astraea (law and law enforcement) on the other leg. Law enforcement had a choice, also, at least the Golden Yod hints at that possibility.

7th Harmonics

At least THREE triangular patterns are present here, all built from septile variants. Did these events make any meaningful change in how law enforcement operated? (Given the threat to the state representative, I question that.) What are these 7th Harmonics of fate and karma telling us about POSSIBLE breakthrough thinking that could come from events like these.

Juno forms septile aspects in a triangular pattern with Moon / Vesta on one leg and Venus / Pallas on the other leg.

Again, we think this means that Bonnie Parker had another premonition or insight that her death was near. Was this a trip that she did not want to make, only resigning herself to it after Clyde insisted?

Horary Chart

In all fairness, this timing was picked because it “lit up” the horary indicators. We note that Moon with v/c (“nothing will come of this”) as was true in the 9/11 chart (World Trade Centers in New York City, September 11th of 2001).

We will not dig deeper, leaving that to the reader.

Here is a second horary variant of the chart:

For those who prefer a “karmic” analysis, we note the (tight!) connection between Mercury and the North Node (fate) and the trine between the South Node (also fate, but unfavorable as in repeating “old behavior”), Astraea (law and law enforcement), and the MC.

[Hamer] was officially credited with 53 kills.” While under the color of law, Hamer had killed at least fifty three people, more than three times as many as Bonnie and Clyde. The phrase “officially credited” offers a question: what was his true body count? (Keep in mind his threat to a state representative almost two decades earlier.) Did he have kills outside of those that would be sanctioned? (Such as politicians who would not “play ball”?)

Hamer killed many times, not just in “other lifetimes” but in this one as well.

Hamer was recruited by Lee Simmons. “[P]rison chief Lee Simmons reportedly promised [dying prison guard Joe Crowson] that all persons involved in the breakout would be hunted down and killed. All of them eventually were, except for Methvin, who preserved his life by setting up the ambush of Barrow and Parker.” (Same source.)

What about “due process”?

Then again, these were the times when the “Shawshank Redemption” was set.

(Are these situations any better today?)


Midpoints are “lit up” and numerous here. Particularly noticeable: Pluto is at the midpoint of Moon / Mars. This is arguably another “death chart” indicator. Pluto is also sesquiquadrate both Venus and Pallas. What could that mean? I think that, among other things, some banks may have used robberies by Bonnie and Clyde as a way to cover misdeeds such as embezzlement.

Regardless, the midpoint trees are “lit up.”

Final notes

While we have covered most of the major points in this chart for this event, much remains. Uranus at 29 Aries, can make a case that nothing could have changed these events or this outcome.

Any of the patterns, and certainly the 5th harmonic and 7th harmonic aspects, could be separate entries of their own. Birth charts for Bonnie Parker, Clyde Barrow, Frank Hamer, and the rest could each be separate entries. And what about the Sun being in the same position in this chart as in Jeffrey Dahmer’s?

Unless we come back to these topics and write more, and we will not rule that out, this is likely our final say on the topic. But, others could follow.

Vernal Equinox of 2020

Vernal Equinox of 2020

[Click to Enlarge]

The Vernal Equinox of 2020 is here. The chart above shows the moment of the Equinox, filtered to show the Thor’s Hammer pattern that is present.

We have written about the Thor’s Hammer pattern before:

In all fairness, I have seen many Thor’s Hammer days that did not produce explosions, mine collapses, or school shooters.  Regardless, they do seem to be difficult days.  The marker does show up frequently with violence and explosions.  Caution should be considered.

Interested in an “in depth” astrological analysis of the Sandy Hook school shootings?  >click here<  Since school is out in most localities, we do not expect any school shootings.  But, that same energy can manifest in other places.

Using astrology to predict some kind of “global disaster” at this point seems superfluous. However, we note that the global death count has not exceeded that of 9/11 (as of this writing) nor reached typical annual influenza deaths (yet) nor come remotely close to that of automobile accidents (at least in the United States). We have yet to see what level of damage will result, but it could be that the worst part is a mix of panic and the economic harm that results.
We present the same chart, changing only to the “beginner’s format” to facilitate analysis and understanding for those new to astrology:

[Click to Enlarge]

“But, what does it mean?”
Juno is at the apex of the Thor’s Hammer, and at my location she is in the 12th house of “self-undoing,” institutions, drugs, alcohol, deceit, dreams, and illness. Hospitals are inherently 12th house organizations, arguably the classic 12th house organizations along with churches and monasteries and similar organization. Except for accidents and other trauma, many of us are born in such places and die in such places. The Coronavirus, Covid-19, is an agent of such energy.

Juno rules females in general but particularly in traditional female roles as wife, mother, daughter, sister, and aunt. It is also the indicator of betrayal, more specifically the betrayed wife who has been betrayed by the philandering husband (Jupiter). Jupiter is courts, universities and university professors, higher education, and foreign travel.

Juno in this position hints that “we,” the People, are in a position to be concerned about betrayal by courts, universities (and related “experts”), and foreign travel. While some might suspect the federal government and our current president (and that COULD be true), I am suspicious of state and (especially) local government for potential for deceit and abuse under these circumstances. A need for oversight along with checks and balances is imperative.

Who else is in this Thor’s Hammer? Mercury on one leg, which is about communications and transportation. Mercury also CAN be about deceit although that is not a certainty. The presence of Mercury here, among other things, emphasizes the importance of logistics (and the potential for abuse and theft).

On the other leg is Vesta, the asteroid associated with Vestal Virgins in particular. Since most of us do not have those any more, Vesta is about people who carry traditions: priests and associated, sometimes military and police in non-combat roles. Careful scrutiny of these parties will be necessary to confirm that theft and other misdeeds does not occur.

Thor’s Hammer: Explosions and School Shootings

That we have a “Thor’s Hammer” tells us that an “explosion” of some kind may result. We have written about the Thor’s Hammer many times before, associating it particularly with school shootings but also mining disasters and the Deepwater Horizon catastrophe, an explosion.

Fourth Harmonic Analysis: Astraea Oppositions and New Law

Following are versions of this chart with information for (1) Horary and Traditional practitioners and (2) Midpoint Trees.  These charts are filtered to focus on fourth harmonic aspects (squares and oppositions).  Note the oppositions of Astraea to Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn.  Jude Cowell describes Astraea as “the goddess of Justice.”  We agree, and this group of oppositions almost certainly heralds unprecedented lawsuits (and similar conflicts).

From the standpoint of attorneys and judges, expect “new law” to be made based on the events of this year.  Similarly, legislatures will craft new statutes (Senate and Congress in the U.S., but, also, ALL legislatures on the planet).

Full Moon 2016-05-21 (Grand Cross, Kite, Hele, and Thor’s Hammer)

Full Moon 2016-05-21 (Grand Cross, Kite, Hele, and Thor’s Hammer)

This Full Moon marks an important turning point.  The FM perfects on the 21st, the day before Mercury Direct Station on the 22nd.  And, the FM is in the “too early to tell” parts of Sagittarius and Gemini.  That means that more will be revealed to us, particularly if you are a Sagittarius or Gemini.

Because of the presence of a Grand Cross, with Astraea in Virgo and Pallas in Pisces, that same admonishment applies to Virgo and Pisces as well.  If you are Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo, or Pisces, then you about to receive a major surprise, most likely a beneficial one, but nevertheless a surprise.

Here is the Full Moon (FM), filtered for the Grand Cross:

Full Moon 2016-05-21 (Grand Cross)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We also have a slightly longer term Thor’s Hammer (God’s Fist) present that covers the few days before the FM and the days after as well (meaning the weekend).  As with other Thor’s Hammers, the potential for danger is present, and the energy needs to be channeled into productive outlets to prevent something or someone from going “boom.”

Here is the FM, filtered for the Thor’s Hammer:

Also present is a Hele, a sign of the formation of long-term, or at least longer term, alliances.  What is thorny, here, is that the alliances will tend to be formed in the “too early to tell” period, and that means that you may discover some aspects of your allies, later, that might not be so pleasant.  (Be careful who you pick for your new friends.)

Here is the FM, filtered for the Hele:

An opportunity is present here also. We have a kite, a bit of a loose one, and that shows opportunity for those who can see it.  Here is the same FM, filtered for the kite:

Full Moon 2016-05-21 (Kite)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This opportunity  tends to favor Pisces and Virgo in particular.  For Pisces, this is easy to see and easy to take advantage but does not represent a “growth opportunity.”  (Are you looking for one of those?)  For Virgo, the reverse is true: hard work and personal growth results but it is a major opportunity.

In any case, do keep in mind that Mercury is about to station direct, that this FM is in the “too early to tell” period, and that we are all about to experience a “surprise” of some kind.

And, by the time of the next Full Moon (June 20th, also Sagittarius Moon / Gemini Sun), it will seem that everything that occurred was “fate.”

Mars Quincunx Uranus 2015-10-23 (Focused Yod)

Mars Quincunx Uranus 2015-10-23 (Focused Yod)

This is the last of a series of aspects that perfect on Friday, October 23rd in the United States.  (In EU/UK this perfects early on Saturday before but near sunrise when many people are still asleep.)

The Hele and Thor’s Hammer are still in effect with the perfection of this outer planet aspect (meaning we have been feeling its effect all week and maybe for the last two or three weeks), but at perfection a Focused Yod also comes into play with the Moon in Pisces at the Apex opposing Venus in Virgo.  That means that “things come to a head” by the end of Friday (in the U.S., early AM in UK/EU), and a decision must be made and acted upon.

The “decision” in this Focused Yod is between Astraea (law, legal, legal system) and Juno (trust and betrayal).  For some people, the question will be “do I file suit” or “do I file for divorce” or something similar.

Here is the chart, filtered for the Focused Yod:

2015-10-23 Mars Quincunx Uranus

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Keep in mind a few things:

  • Mars / Uranus aspects tend to be violent and sometimes produce explosions (we might see a terrible event on Thursday / Friday / Saturday)
  • This is an outer planet (generational planet) aspect and rules more than just this single day.  At a minimum, it influences the week before and the week after perfection
  • This is a Quincunx.  These key issues cannot be fully resolved at this time.  (That requires an opposition or conjunction, typically.)

We may see pivotal events in Syria on (or near) this day.

Venus Conjunct Hygeia 2015-10-20 (Hele)

Venus Conjunct Hygeia 2015-10-20 (Hele)

This is a bit of an odd day as Venus (the traditional planet of health and beauty as well as other things such as finances) conjoins Hygeia (the asteroid devoted entirely the health and healing).  By itself, that is not odd, but the void Moon enters Aquarius (associated with Uranus) shortly before the Venus / Hygeia aspect perfects late in the day after a long Capricorn Moon v/c.

A Hele pattern is present, indicating long term alliances and likely polarization in some kind of conflict.  This is a odd one as we see Venus/Hygeia (clearly health and healthcare issues) in an alliance (trine) with Pluto (police, intelligence agencies, drugs, poisons) versus an alliance (trine) between Astraea (law and the legal system) and Uranus (electronics, technology, surprises, and revolutions).

Here is the chart, filtered for a Hele pattern:

2015-10-20 Venus Conjunct Hygeia (Hele)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We are not certain how to interpret this, but we will go out on a limb and speculate that this is a associated with a data breach of some kind, particularly some kind of data breach involving health and healthcare (our second choice, a distant second, is something in financial services).

Alternatively, we may see a major lawsuit filed involving HIPAA and similar healthcare privacy protections.  Perhaps a scandal breaks involving hospitals that illegally provide private health information to law enforcement agencies?

Mercury Direct Station 2015-10-09

The Mercury Retrograde period that began Thursday, September 17, 2015 will end October 9, 2015.  It is marked by two notable patterns (1) a Yod involving Neptune, Juno, and Astraea and (2) a higher order 7th Harmonic triangular pattern (arguably a 7th Harmonic “Learning Triangle”) involving Pluto, Astraea, and the North Node.  We show the first version of the chart, filtered for the Yod:

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Here is the same chart, filtered for the 7th Harmonic “Learning Triangle”:

2015-10-09 Mercury Direct Station (7th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that both of these patterns have Astraea (law, legal, and justice) involved in both of them.  While a number of interpretations are possisble (and often appropriate to individual situations), we believe that we might see an important divorce initiated at this time.  Astraea represents the various members of the legal system, Juno an aggrieved wife (or possibly other family member), and Neptune a husband who has a problem with drugs / alcohol or other addictive behaviors.  The North Node tells us that much work will be needed.  This will note be an easy process for those involved.

Here is the U.S. Map.  We note that most activations are in the eastern half of the United States (the most densely populated portion) and particularly along the region commonly identified as the “East Coast.”

Astraea enters Leo with heavy 5th and 7th Harmonic activity 2015-09-24

Astraea enters Leo with heavy 5th and 7th Harmonic activity 2015-09-24

Astraea enters Leo on September 24th.  Associated with law, the legal system, and justice, Astraea should be strong in this sign.  Here is the chart, filtered for aspects to Astraea:

2015-09-24 Astraea enters Leo

What makes this chart particularly interesting is the higher order aspects.  5th Harmonic aspects show two interlaced triangular patterns of quintiles / biquintiles that resemble a “Star of David.”  Here is the chart, filtered for those aspects:

Those 5th Harmonic patterns (important choices to be made about creative solutions) are a bit amazing, but also present is a triangular pattern of 7th Harmonic aspects (“karma”):

We hope your awareness is high enough to “do the right thing” when the opportunity presents itself, possibly several of those opportunities, on this rather amazing day.

Sun Sesquiquadrate Uranus 2015-08-28 (Hard Rectangle and More)

Sun Sesquiquadrate Uranus perfects Friday, August 28, 2015.  This is a very GOOD energy for “getting things done” (particularly if you “bit off more than you could chew when you took on that new project Wednesday with Sun Conjunct Jupiter), but it can be very bad if you act impulsively and do something rash and stupid because your temper overcame your better sense.  (Lawyers and boxers might do well under this pattern, but most everyone else tends to suffer.)

We show the chart first filtered for the Sun Sesquiquadrate Uranus aspect (and shows upcoming Sun Opposite Neptune):

2015-08-28 Sun Sesquiquadrate Uranus[Click Image to Enlarge]

Here is the same chart, filtered for 5th harmonic aspects:

2015-08-28 Sun Sesquiquadrate Uranus (5th harmonic)[Click Image to Enlarge]

We see a triangular pattern (a quintile trine?) connecting Mercury (communication and transportation), Astraea (law and legal system), and Pallas (innovation, particularly military innovation).  This can be a day to make important breakthroughs in these areas.

A Hard Rectangle occurs this day, also, heightening the intensity of the day.

Square Keys of August 2015

We present these together even thought the August 31st Square Key occurs after the Full Moon of August 29th (and therefore may represent a different set of “lessons”).  (We say “lessons” because, as we have said before, Square Keys are really interlaced Huber Learning Triangles.)

We present them in reverse order, starting with the Square Key of August 31st:

2015-08-31 Square Key

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This Square Key also requires use of the Node, specifically the South Node.  It involves a lesson that results from “taking the easy way out” or, alternatively “doing things the way we have always done them.”  The crowed that tends to say “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” will feel this lesson extra strongly.  They may even be so foolish as to say, after experiencing the lesson, “it ain’t broke.”  But, it is.

Chances are good that the lessons of August 31st will involve police or intelligence agencies (or death or taxes, Pluto) along with innovations, particularly military innovations (Pallas).  With the school year starting, this could easily involve police, particularly undercover police operations, in educational settings.

Next, we present the Square Key of August 24th:

2015-08-24 Square Key

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Since this Square Key (SK) also involves the South Node, it may be setting the stage for the SK of August 31st  We note that it involves the Sun, Moon, and Saturn as well as the South Node.  The “lights” (Sun and Moon) tell is that this involves basic issues that affect everyone, and Saturn is about “hard work” and focusing on “the basics.”  Saturn can also be academics and testing in particularly.  Some say that Saturn and the South Node are different faces of the same thing (often “doing things the way we have always done them”).  Again, we think that this could be related to issues that specifically address the beginning of the school year.

Finally, we present the Square Key of August 23, the day the Sun touches Regulus:

2015-08-23 Square Key

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Moon, Astraea, Chiron, and Uranus (Prometheus) are involved.  This is likely a different set of issues from the other two SK’s.  The key issues here involve sensitive personal issues (the Moon), law and the legal system (Astraea), health, healing, and teaching (Chiron), and surprises, insights, and innovations (Uranus).  This sets the stage for some people having critically important lessons (and insights) that will empower (Regulus) them to rebel (Uranus) later against those who argue for “doing things the way we have always done them.”

2015-07-27 Mercury Quincunx Neptune

We will likely update this post a bit over the next day or so.  A number of patterns are in play, but we present the Mercury Quincunx chart filtered for the Yod that is in play:

2015-07-27 Mercury Quincunx Neptune (Yod)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The issue is about “feast and famine” (Ceres) and it could be literal (i.e. “should I go on a diet” or “should I start a new exercise program” or “I really want that piece of cake”) or more metaphorical (“what are the financial markets doing” or “should I start a new job or go back to school”).  The choices are Venus Retrograde (we are having to take a hard look at our values, and we may choose the famine option to preserve those values) or Astraea (Justice).  The problem is that this is associated with the perfection of Mercury Quincunx Neptune, and NO OTHER ASPECT introduces confusion into communications more than this one!

That means you need to decide, but you do not have all the facts, and you are not sure what is going on.  At best, it is a messy situation that you may need to revisit when Mercury turns retrograde in September.

Astrology of 2015-01-09 Taking Sides and Making Decisions

We normally think of a Virgo moon as being relatively benevolent.  But, this day is filled with the Quincunx (aka Inconjunct), and misunderstandings abound.  January of 2015 is rich in patterns, and in this post we are singling out two for analysis.

First, we note that the day is characterized by a Hele (this chart is set at a time chosen by Solar Fire 8 for the beginning on the Hele, but the Hele itself covers roughly a 24 hour period, so the ascendant is not particularly meaningful here):

2015-01-09 Hele

[Click Image to Enlarge]

As we have discussed before, the Hele appears to be a polarizing pattern, encouraging people to choose one of two sides.  (e.g. “police” v. “minorities”)  In the case of this Hele, one side is relatively mainstream or traditional or “the way things have always been.”  This is the Sun/Moon trine (with Vesta in the mix).  The other side is a combination of trust v. distrust (Juno) and surprises (Uranus) with, paradoxically, a tendency to keep things the way they always have been (South Node).  That is, the alternate leg involves issues of trust v. mistrust along with surprises (and possibly innovations).

While the Moon / Juno (internal self and trust issues) side of this Hele is in harmony, the Sun (outer self and authority figures) / Uranus (surprises, explosions, revolutions, insights) is not in harmony.

A hele, by itself, does not necessarily spark action.  But this day also contains a focused yod.  We note that, in addition to requiring a decision and likely action, the focused yod also likely contains possible answers to the questions posed by the Hele:

2015-01-09 Focused Yod

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This focused yod contains Chiron / Juno as one leg and Chiron / North Node as the other.  The choice is between continuing to be caught in issues of trust and distrust, probably mired in them, or doing the hard work necessary to move forward.  With Juno in Leo, we can tell that a great deal of ego is involved and “letting go” just is not going to come very easily.  And the North Node is in Libra and focuses on relationship issues and what some call “give and take.”  The moon provides a possible anwser as it has earlier opposed Chiron and offered answers in the form of work and play (Virgo = work, Pisces = Play) combined with a need to become highly organized in order to move forward necessary healing.

We will close this post by saying that today signifies the work to be done but does not show that the problems are solved.  Today’s messages will be ones of what needs to be done, and what can be done, instead of any final resolution.

Pay attention to what signs and ideas come your way.

One last thing: I check the search engine terms for this site.  One of you ran a search for “astraea paris october eclipse.”  I went back and checked my post on that eclipse, the most recent solar eclipse, and indeed an astraea line is dead center on Paris at the time of that eclipse.  (Thanks to whoever ran the search.)

Again: Pay attention to what signs and ideas come your way.

Full Moon November 2014

Here is the basic chart for the Full Moon of November 2014:

Full Moon November 2014 (Beginners)

[Click to Enlarge]

We see some indication that we may be entering a period of austerity (or a cold winter?) as Venus is between the Sun and Saturn (all in Scorpio) with Mars applying to conjoin Saturn (both in Capricorn).  Saturn and Pluto continue in mutual reception, as has been true since 2012.  Will be interesting to see what the financial markets do.  We note that Mars and Vesta are semi-octile, and that might be the most important aspect during this full moon.  (More discussion on this below after the Modulus Sort Strips.)  We also note a Huber triangle involving Sun / Moon / Chiron (as shown in the next version of the chart).

Similarly important, Astraea (at 29 Pisces) is semi-square the Moon and Sesquisquare the Sun (in a pattern we have not seen named before but similar to a T-Square or arguably the Huber triangle).  (This is all about some injustice that has NOT been resolved!)

Here is an horary version of that same chart data:

One thing that benefits this full moon is that none of the planets are peregrine.  The arabic parts generally look favorable as well.

Here is last year’s November Scorpio / Taurus full moon.

Here are the midpoint trees for those interested in midpoints:

We see a very busy group of midpoint trees.  Here is the Modulus Sort strips, another way to identify relationships that may not otherwise be entirely obvious:

Notice that the last strip, the 22.5 strip, shows Vesta/Mars next to each other.  This means that they are “semi-octile” with is a 16th Harmonic aspect.  But, what does that mean?  Discussions abound, and opinions vary.

My interpretation is that the semi-octile is a kind of “irritation,” a bit like the persistent annoyance of a pebble in the shoe that ultimately must be addressed.

With Vesta/Mars the two bodies joined by semi-octile, we suspect some people may be either quite irritable or outright enraged (possibly by some event near the FM).  We will see some of this after the elections in the U.S., but they not a cause of the problem (the elections reflect other underlying problems).  Any polarization that occurred with the Rosettas of October will more clearly emerge at this time.  Remember, also, that on a much large scale we are choosing (collectively and individually) one of two major forks in the road (i.e. The Grand Yod).

We have indicated Mars/ Vesta in the 22.5 strip in this last graphic using deep red.  (The 22.5 strip is the last in the series.)  Two strips above it, the fourth in the series, is the 45 degree strip.  Here, at the end, we see Sun / Moon / Astraea as noted using light blue.  As mentioned before, this is about an injustice that is unresolved.  Justice must be had here.  Given the upcoming Thor’s Hammer days circa November 14/15, we shudder to think of what may happen if whatever coverup(s) have been going on are not exposed in a peaceful manner.

We also identify four (4) themes that emerge from four (4) Triseptiles during this period.  (“Triseptiles” are higher order aspects that are difficult to interpret; those who do attempt to interpret them claim that they are “karmic” in nature.)

1.  Jupiter BISeptile Ceres (and Ceres square Neptune): This is a large, higher order set of issues involving education and law (Jupiter), the food supply (Ceres), and healthcare & drugs (Neptune).  Jupiter in Leo indicates that we can expect dramatic changes, Ceres in Sadge strengthens Jupiter’s role, and Neptune introduces a sense of urgency and annoyance as the solutions dissolve into failures (and lessons for better solutions in the future).

The full moon itself (Moon opposes Sun) is part of a Huber triangle involving Chiron (the “wounded healer,” another indicator of education and healthcare issues).  This Sun / Moon / Chiron triangle will almost certainly activate the Jupiter / Ceres / Neptune pattern on a mundane level.  (Maybe part of the key to dealing with the Ebola problem will involve education of healthcare workers?)

2.  Juno BiSeptile Saturn: Issues and trust and betrayal collide with policies that may be too “bare bones” to protect those that should be protected.  Change becomes necessary.

3.  Pallas TriSeptile Uranus: in the low form, surprise attacks.  In the high form, insights that result in breakthroughs, particularly technological breakthroughs.  Given the nature of Pallas, some of these may be military in nature and the information not available to the public.

4.  Vesta BiSeptile Astraea: Similar in many ways to #3.  A push to address injustices boils to the surface.  The Vesta / Mars semi-octile discussed earlier ties into this and is the “pebble in the shoe” that heightens the pressure to obtain justice and redress the wrongs.

Here is the same full moon chart, but displaying specifically the TriSeptiles:

We note that the U.S. map is unusually busy.  The area where Montana and South Dakota meet is highly activated.  (Will we see a surprise winter storm or other unusual weather there?)

You do have an interesting chart, given your 12th house stellium (cluster of four or more planets, at least two of which are NOT personal planets) and Sun conjunct Pluto (exact) in the 11th house of friends, surprises, (and sometimes bribes).  With Jupiter in the 10th and near Midheaven (universities, legal system, and sometimes churches), you should consider a career at a university or in the courts.  Depending on your background and abilities, you might should consider being a teacher or an attorney.  The asteroid Astraea is also present in the 10th, and that points in the direction of the legal system.

The 12th house stellium indicates that you will tend to be involved with institutions, but you can (at least potentially) choose which ones.  Univeristies or courts might be preferable to jails or mental health facilities for you.  You do have to be careful regarding addictions, whether your own or people who are close to you.

I suspect that the energy of the legal system has come to you rather than you coming to it.  If that is true, you should at least consider a shift in career that allows you to harness that energy to benefit you.
