2015 Autumnal Equinox

Here are some of the sites discussing this equinox:

Here is the chart for the Autumnal Equinox of 2015, filtered for 5th Harmonic aspects (very active):

We have seen this pattern recently, but it does not occur often.  Interlaced triangular 5th Harmonic aspects (quintile and biquintile) appear to form a 5th Harmonic version of the Star of David.  We think that this fall will be a period conducive to the development of creative works.

We note that Mercury is retrograde, and recent outer planet activity forms an “interesting” context for this change of seasons.  See, also:

Autumnal Equinox, September 2014: the First Day of Fall

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

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.

This is an interesting full moon for those that celebrate the changing of the seasons.  It occurs just a very few days before the equinox.

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?

Autumnal Equinox 2012

The Autumnal Equinox is Saturday morning here in Plano, and the Full Moon is a little over a week after that.  The Equinox is occurring just after the peak of the Uranus/Pluto square, and the Sun forms a T-Square with them within the next few days.  Once again, we can say that “revolution is in the air.”

Jude Cowell has an excellent political analysis of this Autumnal Equinox.

For people born in the late 1950’s to early 1960’s, Mars has either squared your Uranus or soon will.  These are dangerous times for you, especially with the Sun/Uranus/Pluto T-Square coming active.  Be careful.

With some ingenuity, creative types will be able to harness these energies to develop very “edgy” work.

For people born in Aries in 1965, Mars & Uranus was conjoined with Pluto in Virgo.  (Uranus / Pluto conjunctions happen roughly every 84 years.)  Mars has been aspecting this combination as well, leaving this group very volatile  or accident prone at this time.
