Jupiter Square Saturn 2016-05-26

First, you might want to peek at our analysis of this aspect on March 23, 2016 and August 3, 2015.  The perfection of today’s square is the third in a three party sequence, and we will not see a similar pattern repeat until 2024 / 2025.

Before we address the regular patterns, we should note some remarkable fifth harmonic activity.  Two triangular patterns composed of fifth harmonic activity are present.  One is formed by Juno (in Scorpio; trust v. betrayal, wives, sisters, daughters) at the apex and Sun in Gemini on one leg and Chiron in Pisces on the other.  This Jupiter / Saturn square has this particularly powerful pattern in play.  Jupiter/Saturn aspects are associated with changes in the financial markets, and we note that issues of trust (Juno) have become important (if you do not know this, then you need to watch “The Big Short” and “Money Monster“).

The other triangular pattern has Uranus at the apex, Mars on one leg, and the North Node on the other leg.  As with the first triangular pattern, each leg is a BiQuintile aspect (144 degrees) with Mars / Node separated by a quintile.  We can expect surprises.

All of this fifth harmonic activity signals the potential for  creative breakthroughs and genius level solutions, possibly to problems in the financial markets.

Here is the chart for perfection of Jupiter square Saturn, filtered for fifth harmonic aspects:

Seventh harmonic aspects are also active (not quite as active as fifth harmonic), and we present the same chart filtered for those:

2016-05-26 Jupiter Square Saturn (7th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Sun, Ceres, and North Node in a triangular seventh harmonic aspect tell us that some “karma” may need to be considered at this time, and that karma especially deals with feast and famine (literally, in terms of food, and metaphorically, in terms of finances).

The more ordinary patterns (if you can at all consider them that) are a Kite (opportunity), Hele (stable long term alliances), Rosetta (unstable long term alliances), and a Thor’s Hammer (aka God’s Fist, and an indicator of possible danger or violence).

The kite, combined with the fifth harmonic patterns previously described, tells us that an amazing opportunity is available at this time:

2016-05-26 Jupiter Square Saturn (Kite)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

One variant of the kite has Jupiter / Neptune, Mercury, and Pluto in the formation (and includes the current and ongoing Grand Earth Trine in it).  Let’s be clear the opportunity for someone to make quite a bit of money exists here.

The other variant tells us that the Nodes are present (instead of Jupiter / Neptune), and hard work will be necessary and the lure of “easy money” will be strong.  We offer this advice: be careful.  Financial markets are typically “zero sum games” (at least in the short term), and for someone to “win” someone else must “lose.”

The Hele represents both the opportunity (and need) for long term alliances, especially to take advantage of the opportunity:

2016-05-26 Jupiter Square Saturn (Hele)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The Rosetta is a bit more thorny: it represents short-term allegiances (and the potential for betrayal from a long term perspective).  Hele and Rosetta TOGETHER always send this message: “pick your friends carefully!”

Finally, we have the Thor’s Hammer (God’s Fist).  Extreme behavior (including the potential for violence and/or explosions) may be present the week of the perfection of this aspect:

Sun Sesquiquadrate Neptune 2015-10-15

This is the kind of day where you feel you “must do something about it,” but you are not certain what “it” is or what “must be done.”  Maybe very good for work on writing a song or poetry or working on a painting or video, but disconcerting for many of us, particularly in the area of relationships.

Even worse, the Moon is v/c in Scorpio all day.  That means you feel the pain and need to change (Scorpio), but your attempts to solve the problem either fail (“nothing will come of us”) or are oddly perverse in their results.  This is a tough day, unless you use it for housecleaning and introspection.

Sun Sesquiquadrate Neptune 2015-10-15 (5th Harmonic)

[Click to Enlarge]

We do note TWO triangular 5th Harmonic patterns, making this an excellent time for “creatives” to work (even if you do not “finish” it).  Bright ideas and brilliant insights can come at this time, so write down whatever comes to you even if it seems a little crazy at the time.

Some 7th Harmonic aspects are in play that tell us that some of us will be dealing with “karma” on this day, and you may feel a need to “set things right” or “make amends.”  Just make certain to obtain feedback from a trusted advisor to be clear that you do not make things worse.  (If in doubt, leave it alone.)

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

[Click Image to Enlarge]

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:

2015-09-24 Astraea enters Leo (5th Harmonic)

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.

As an aside, any child born on this day will have truly amazing potential.

Hygeia Enters Virgo and Squares Saturn 2015-09-19

Hygeia (health, healing and healthcare professions) enters Virgo (arguably its home) on September 19th and almost immediately squares Saturn at 0 Sagittarius.  Both Virgo and Sagittarians will likely “feel” this day, but so will Pisces and Gemini.  This is especially true for those who birthdays (Sun or other planets) are near the “cusp” including late Leos, Scorpios, Aquarians, and Taureans.  (Birthdays a few days before or after February 18th, May 21st, August 23rd, and November 22nd).

Here is the chart for entry of Hygeia into Virgo:

2015-09-19 Hygeia Enters Virgo

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Health and healthcare issues are likely to be prominent on this date, particularly for those with birthdays “near” the dates previously mentioned.

Here is the chart for the square:

2015-09-19 Hygeia Square Saturn

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note significant 5th Harmonic activation at this time.  A 5th Harmonic pattern resembling a Yod is in play, and we believe that this represents an opportunity to choose between two alternative innovative solutions that present on this date.

Here is the chart of Hygeia entry into Virgo, filtered for 5th Harmonic aspects:

2015-09-08 Mars Quincunx Chiron

While this perfects on September 8th, most people in the United States (and the Western Hemisphere) will feel this most strongly on September 7th.  It is an unpleasant aspect that leads to misunderstandings at best and accidents at worst.  We will see some family (and other) squabbles on this Labor Day holiday, and some “feelings” may be deeply hurt, especially near lunch time or early afternoon (Moon opposite Pluto).  Accidents have the potential to be serious, so be careful.  Here is the chart:

2015-09-08 Mars Quincunx Chiron

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Now is NOT the time to “work through” family issues; instead diplomacy and avoidance of “sensitive” topics until a more favorable time (maybe a few days from now) is recommended.  We note that Hygeia (health and healthcare) is also quincunx Ceres (feast/famine), so accidents (or other trauma) could be particularly expensive on this date, likely requiring a trip to the Emergency Department of a Hospital.  (Still calling it an “Emergency Room” when it is bigger than some small clinics?  Time to update your lexicon!  See, also: CDC Statistics on ED Visits.)

Doing something like this could get you nominated for the Darwin Awards.  (And, if you DO see someone doing something like that, then move back a “safe distance.”  Then move back at least that much again.)

We do note a LARGE amount of 5th Harmonic activity, so this might be a very good time to write down your ideas.  Development of poetry, lyrics, melody, and perhaps photography and video could be very powerful on this day.  But, again, practice diplomacy.

Here is the same chart, filtered for 5th Harmonic Activity:

2015-09-08 Mars Quincunx Uranus (5th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

You may note the triangular pattern involving Moon + Astraea / Pallas / North Node activity.  This indicates possible insights and innovations on how to heal some old wounds.  But, again, record the ideas (and plans) and pause to execute them at least one day.

In any case, if you are celebrating Labor Day today, please have a safe and healthy holiday!

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):

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.

Sun Sextile Saturn 2015-09-23 (Mystic Rectangle and more)

Sun sextile Saturn is an excellent day for “getting things done.”  But, this is nothing short of an amazing day.  (We have great expectations for children born on this day.)  Why is it amazing?

(1) A Mystic Rectangle occurs.  These are both rare and incredibly fortuitous.

(2) An amazing 5th harmonic pattern occurs that greatly resembles a Star of David pattern

Here is this chart for the perfection of Sun Sextile Saturn, filtered for the Mystic Rectangle:

And here is the same chart filtered for the 5th order harmonics (quintiles and biquintiles):

2015-09-23 Sun Sextile Saturn (5th Order Harmonics)[Click Image to Enlarge]

Since, apparently, no name exists for this pattern, we will call it a “Quintile Star of David.”  (This is likely not a “perfect” version of the “Quintile Star of David” since that would require Mars Opposite Neptune in this case.)

These rather amazing patterns form on the same day as the Sun conjoins the North Node, forming a particularly powerful kite pattern.

Sun Conjunct Jupiter 2015-08-26

This happens once a year, every year.  It is USUALLY a window of good fortune, and that is what we expect on this date.  However, a yod occurs earlier in the day, and your ability to take advantage of this may depend on the decision you made earlier, before this aspect perfects.  Furthermore, Jupiter is in “detriment”  in Virgo and not able to perform as strongly as usual.

We also note the presence of substantial 5th order harmonics (quintiles and biquintiles), and we should the chart filtered for those:

2015-08-26 Sun Conjunct Jupiter (5th order harmonics)[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that the pattern we are describing has Mercury (communications and transportation) at the center (or apex) with Astraea (law and the legal system) on one side (or leg) and Pallas (innovation, particularly military innovation) on the other side (or leg).   Will be interesting to see what enters the news at this time.  Don’t be surprised to see that it involves a controversial technology that, once again, may be a further threat to our collective privacy.

On a personal level, this can be a very good time to launch a new project, particularly if you can finish it before the Full Moon perfects (August 29th) or, failing that, before the next New Moon (the Solar Eclipse of September 13th).

Mercury (R) Conjunct Sun 2015-09-30

Mercury (R) Conjunct Sun 2015-09-30

Retrograde Mercury conjoins the Sun slightly past 0930 CDT (please adjust for your time zone).  This short window, from about 900 CDT to about 1000 CDT, is a time when an old project can be resurrected with brilliant results.  Here is the chart, filtered for the Kite present at this time:

2015-09-30 Mercury (R) Conjunct Sun (Kite)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Actually, when we filter for 5th harmonic aspects, we find a 5th harmonic aspect similar to a Yod that gives you a choice between (a) resurrecting the old project (Sun/Mercury on one leg) or (b) scrapping it and replacing it with a new brilliant solution (Pallas, innovation, on the other leg).  Here is the chart, filtered for 5th harmonic aspects:

2015-09-30 Mercury (R) Conjunct Sun (5th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Do realize that, whichever approach you choose, you may need to make adjustments after Mercury turns direct.  And a bit of a “fly in the ointment” exists in the form of Sun Quincunx Neptune perfecting on this date.  A reality check is in order, and you still might overlook critical details in the implementation of the ideas you generate on this date.

Lunar Eclipse of 2015-09-27 (Blood Moon 4 of 4)

Lunar Eclipse of 2015-09-27 (Blood Moon 4 of 4)

While the religious fervor is nearing fever pitch, this lunar eclipse (full moon) looks relatively uninteresting.  However, it IS an eclipse, and those are always strong punctuation marks to astrologers.  Also: we note that this occurs 9/28 in UK/EU and that part of the world.

We independently arrive at essentially the same conclusions, and completely agree with the analysis done by, Armstrong Economics: this Blood Moon is not “The End of the World as We Know It” but it does likely signal a major “shift in trend.”

As far as regular patterns go, only an ongoing kite pattern colors this particular eclipse:

2015-09-27 Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon, Blood Moon 4 of 4, Kite)[Click Image to Enlarge]

However, the chart does contain a fair amount of 5th harmonic activity (some of it interesting) and 7th harmonic activity .  We present the chart filtered for 5th harmonic aspects (quintiles and biquintiles) first, noting a pattern similar to a yod (but composed of biquintiles instead of quincunxes):

2015-09-27 Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon, Blood Moon 4 of 4, 5th Harmonic)[Click Image to Enlarge]

Mars (physical energy, sometimes war and violence) is connected to biquintiles to Ceres (feast/famine) and Vesta (tradition, but sometimes weird sex).  Ceres and Vesta are connected by a quintile.  All of this is about insights and novel ideas (think Mozart) about combining these three areas, and perhaps a choice between the Ceres issues (feast / famine) and Vesta issues (traditions and rituals), similar to a Yod.

A similar situation exists with 7th Harmonic aspects (“karma”):

2015-09-27 Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon, Blood Moon 4 of 4, 7th Harmonic)[Click Image to Enlarge]

Here we have Venus (love, beauty, money) at the apex, and Chiron (healing and teaching) on one leg and Ceres on the other.  Resolving “karma” involving these three is the core issue here.

So, if we see any issues from this eclipse, we suspect that they will deal with decisions that involve these higher order aspects.  A decision appears to be present: whether to stick with tradition (Vesta, doing things the way we have always done them) or taking a risk (Ceres, feast or famine).  I note that some people will end a relationship at this time (Ceres, the risk of feast or famine) while others will continue with what they know despite some dissatisfaction (Vesta, sticking with what we know).

Some have said that the unrest in Syria (arguably a civil war) IS central to the message for all of us at this time.  Chances are good that we will only be able to see that more fully in hindsight.  (Do note the 7th harmonic (karma) pattern similar to a Yod that appears to offer us a decision.)  We have some other observations about this eclipse posted on our sibling site Mystic Rectangles.

Quintile Kite of May 27, 2015: Lance the Boil

May 27, 2015 at 8:48 am | Posted in 2015, Astrology, Higher Order Aspects, Patterns | 4 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

We present the chart for the Quintile Kite of May 27, 2015:

2015-05-27 Quintile Kite during Moon vc

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This Quintile Kite occurs during Virgo Moon v/c (void of course) along with a preceding Mercury/Mars conjunction (with Mercury Retrograde for overdue projects and issues) and Venus Trine Chiron perfecting later.  Mercury conjunct Mars often leads some people to say and do things they regret later.  But Mercury retrograde addresses overdue issues (“coming to a a head”) and Venus (in Cancer, home and family) trines Chiron (the Wounded Healer).

If you are up to doing it, today might be the day to “lance the boil” and clear the air of something no one wants to discuss.  Be prepared for anger and tears and sorrow, and avoid physical violence (of course!).  Do it as early in the day as possible, clear the air, and find time for the creative solutions (Quintile Kite) that can emerge from addressing this painful issue.  Then, move forward.

Just keep one thing in mind: tomorrow is very unstable and all hell may break loose.

New Moon May 17, 2015 in Taurus: Quintile Kites and More

We present the New Moon chart for May 17, 2015.  On the eastern coast of the United States as well as in the UK, Europe and certain other parts of the world this NM occurs on May 18, 2015.

2015-05-13 20_26_44-View Chart

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We present the chart initially with the aspects to the Sun / Moon emphasized.  We note that this NM is exactly conjunct Algol, as happened with the moon at the Vernal Equinox of 2010.  That heralded a series of disasters, including the WVA Coal Mine Explosion and culminated in the disaster of the Deepwater Horizon.

As we have mentioned previously, when discussing the recent Philly train wreck, a Quintile Kite is in play for some time during May 2015.  That means we are in an extraordinarily rare period that facilitates innovations and creativity.  Since Mars and Saturn are critically involved (their opposition perfected May 15th), these innovations do not come easily (i.e. possibly through disasters such as train wrecks).  The position of Saturn near a certain fixed star emphasizes this.  Still, this is a GREAT window for “creatives” (painters, poets, etc.)  It also means we might make real progress in terms of safety practices.

Horary charts are intended to “answer” a “question.”  Playing New Moon Jeopardy for a moment (here is the answer, an horary chart), we ask, what is the question?

2015-05-17 New Moon Quintile Kite (Horary)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note Part of Catastrophe, Part of Fatality, Part of Treachery, and Part of Imprisonment in play.  Sun and Moon form a New Moon conjunct Algol.  Mercury and Pallas aspect Hamal.  What question do you think this NM is answering?  (Comments invited.  Hint: the NM conjunct Algol is critically important!)

Other patterns are in play.  Noteworthy is the persistent Thor’s Hammer currently potentiating accidents and potential for violence:

2015-05-17 New Moon Thors Hammer

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This Thor’s Hammer (aka God’s Fist) is composed of Saturn (in opposition with Mars!) at the apex, Uranus on one leg, and Hygeia on the other leg.  This is a difficult window of time.  We might argue that the presence of Mars opposite Saturn at apex constitute (another) new pattern: a “Thor’s Hammer Kite!”  But, unlike a traditional kite, this is likely a rather unlucky pattern (unless composed of benevolent planets, and this one is not!)

We also find (yet another) Yod, telling us that an important decision is facing us:

2015-05-17 New Moon Yod Mercury Jupiter Pluto

Retrograde Mercury is the FASTEST planet involved, so this is with us for a bit also.  And we will likely revisit the decision we made at this time shortly after Mercury goes direct.

More to come on this over the next few days.

Saturday November 29, 2014 Yod and more

November 28, 2014 at 8:28 am | Posted in Astrology, Patterns, Weekends | 4 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , ,

The afternoon and evening of Saturday, November 29, 2014 is complex and contradictory.  The triggering event appears to be Moon conjunct Chiron (a once a month event that gradually changes character over a longer time window).  While we will cover a number of patterns in play, one particularly leaps out: a Yod involving Chiron, Juno, and the North Node:

2014-11-29 Chiron-Juno-Node Yod

[Click to Enlarge]

We point this out because, post-Thanksgiving, this pattern tells us something obvious without astrology: some relationships, including marriages, will break up this Saturday.  Thanksgiving will be the “straw that broke the camel’s back,” but some people will not fully shut the door (or walk out the door) until Saturday afternoon (or possibly Saturday evening).  And, SOME of you NEED to do this.  (I am referring to anyone in an abusive situation.  In fact, if you have to leave on Friday while they are away at work, then don’t wait until Saturday.  Safety trumps everything.)

Here is the basic “beginners” chart for Moon conjunct Chiron:

2014-11-29 Moon Conjunct Chiron (Beginners)[Click to Enlarge]

Juno, one leg of the Yod, is about trust and loyalty (AND betrayal).  The Node, the other leg of the Yod, is about doing the tough and difficulty thing that is “the right thing.”  Moon (both our inner state and the current state of affairs) joins Chiron (the wounded healer) to activate this relationship fully.  If you are in a bad relationship, this is a good time to leave without any intent to return.

Polarizing influences exist in the sky in the form of both a Rosetta and a Hele.  This means that people (possibly family members) will “take sides” (or polarize) in this dispute.

Here is the Rosetta:

2014-11-29 Moon-Hygeia-Ceres-Node Rosetta (Beginners)

[Click to Enlarge]

Note that Moon/Chiron is allied with Hygeia (health and healthcare issues).

Here is the Hele:

2014-11-29 Moon-Uranus-Pallas-Juno Hele (Beginners)

[Click to Enlarge]

In the Hele, Uranus and Pallas are involved along with Moon/Chiron and Juno.  Thus the Hele is interconnected with, and overlaps with, the Yod.  Uranus brings in both unpredictability and insights; Pallas emphasizes insights, awareness, and the need to take action.  This set of issues must be resolved.

Uranus / Saturn / Hygeia are in a large, slow moving Thor’s Hammer emphasizing the instability of this period. [Graphic omitted.]

Finally, a number of BiQuintiles indicate that some creativity can come into play if a departure must be achieved:

Sun/Hygeia, Pallas/Uranus, Astrea / Jupiter, and Juno / Pluto emphasize the availability of creative solutions.  This video may be helpful to some people:

Milica’s Chart

January 7, 2013 at 1:33 am | Posted in Astrology, NatalChartAnalysis | 2 Comments
Tags: , , , ,

Reader Milica has requested a chart, writing the following:

I am a female taurus. I have a Pluto, Saturn and Mars in Scorpio. How would this transit affect me? Thanks

Here is her natal chart:

Milica 1-7-2013 1-12-04 AM

[Click to Enlarge]

Milica will experience her Saturn Return this year, and given the events this summer, the experience will be a particularly powerful one for her.  She will deal with a number of emotional issues.  If she is married she may divorce, and if she is single she might marry.  Having a child is also possibility.  These are all things that often happen with the first saturn return, as well as subsequent ones.

Her Sun and Moon are bi-quintile, and that aspect can provide genius.  We are guessing that, given her taurus sun her predilection is music or sculpture but it might be another field, such as finance.  Moon is near Uranus (conjunct if you use loose orbs) and that confirms that she either is very bright or could be.  Unfortunately, the South Node is nearby, and that means that she probably only sticks with things she can do easily rather than a pursuit of magnifying her strengths into what they could be.  The Saturn Return may bring her an awareness of this genius if it is currently dormant.

Saturn has touched her natal Pluto recently, and “things have been difficult.”  She may have experienced a death in the family.  Saturn is active in the eighth house, and she is likely dealing with death, taxes, power struggles, or a mix of all three.  She may have come into an inheritance or may be in line to do so within the next year or two.

Mars opposite Venus leaves her as being rather sexy, likely physically attractive, to potential suitors.  But, if she is available, she must choose wisely.  Venus, Sun, and Chiron, by sign, oppose Mars & Saturn, by sign.  This leaves her with an ongoing series of struggles and can sometimes make decision making very difficult.  Failure to decide, of course, is also a decision.  Any potential suitor must be able to “live with this,” and see her as she is, rather than as merely a sex object.  And, more than a few suitors may be intimidated by her creative intelligence and, effectively, coerce her to hide or dampen the abilities that are her birthright.

She has Pallas in the 12th, and this is double-edged.  Sometimes she can depend too heavily on her intelligence.  If she is indeed very bright, then her trap is easy to see: she becomes dependent upon last minute preparation, and then she fails in goals that require even the brightest students to make serious preparations.  But, if she can overcome this tendency to procrastinate, then she can be a creator of elegant solutions.

No Exact Aspects 2012-08-14

The Daily Planetary Guide shows “No Exact Aspects” for today, August 14th.  Over the years, I have noticed that some of these days with “No Exact Aspects” were of profound significance, but I could not determine why.  Eventually, I discovered what I believe to the solution.

Higher order aspects, such as quintiles, bi-quintiles, septiles, bi-septiles, tri-septiles, and so forth are ignored by many if not most astrologers and often considered “minor aspects.”  They occur frequently, and their effect does not seem to last long.  But, particularly regarding quintiles and bi-quintiles, they often bring with them a very powerful kind of “problem solving” window or energy.  (Most astrologers speak of “energy” but I tend to think of “windows” of opportunity.)

On a day when the Ptolemaic aspects are absent, these aspects seem to gain more power as they “shine through.”  That is, without any strong Ptolemaic aspects to eclipse them, and hide their influence, they are more clearly seen.  In a sense, they “announce themselves.”  These days are often remarkably powerful windows of opportunity for creative problem solving.  (Maybe Llewelyn should consider identifying these days and the higher order harmonics present, starting with any exact outer planet higher order harmonics and working inward.)

Using one of my favorite tools, PAT, we obtain this chart:

Some of these aspects have already perfected, and several important ones will perfect on August 15th.  In many ways, August 14th is a day to prepare for the events that will culminate in the period between August 15th and the New Moon on the 17th.

I have also used Solar Fire to produce a similar aspect grid, set in Plano and a little after 3am.  Except for the lunar aspects, these will change little in the next 24 hours, and only the Solar aspects will change significantly by the end of the week.  Some of the aspects will fall out of orb and disappear.  Others are “applying” and will perfect, starting on August 15th.  But, mostly, they are in effect until the New Moon on the 17th.

A few of you may be asking what is the different between PAT and Solar Fire.  Well, obviously SF is far more powerful.  But, what other difference?  The answer is that PAT costs about $10 and is an easy way to get started.  If you do that and find that you are truly interested in Astrology, then you might consider spending the $300 or so that Solar Fire costs.  (If you do that, consider the companion tools Solar Maps and Jigsaw.  They are worth it.)

A few will criticize this post claiming that higher order aspects are always in play.  But, we admitted that at the beginning.  What we are saying is this: (1) no day really exists where you have “No Exact Aspects,” (2) on days of supposedly “No Exact Aspects” these higher order aspects become more significant, and (3) often these days of “No Exact Aspects” are actually powerful windows of opportunity for creative problem solving.  (But, implementing the solution should probably come on a later date, in this case August 15th, during the “Cazimi” period of the New Moon on the 17th, or a day or two after the New Moon.  Could be even a day or two after the New Moon.  The 18th looks very “interesting” this year.)

The next few days will be of pivotal importance to certain people.  August 14th will be a day of preparation for most.  The 15th and 16th will be days of action.  Since all of these days fall BEFORE a New Moon, the best use is clearing out the old.  This is a good time to get the junk out of the garage and donated to someone who can use it.  Some of us, of course, will receive the old junk.  Be careful not to throw a Rembrandt or Da Vinci in the trash.  And, this is a very good time for smart shoppers to get great bargains.

I strongly suspect that we will see an announcement of great importance nationally or even globally in the next few days.

Higher Order Harmonics: Weekend of April 30th 2010

This weekend is all about Higher Order Harmonics.  What are those?  We mean these:  quintiles, biqunitiles, septiles, biseptiles, triseptiles, and variants on noviles.  These are what “Aha!” moments are made of.

Let your mind intentionally daydream this weekend.  You can write down solutions to problems you may not have been able to solve.  Artists, poets, and musicians can do their best at this time.  Here are charts + analysis:

One of the first periods is the few minutes surrounding 9:34 am (localized from Plano and CDT):

The entire weekend is characterized by a series of patterns called “Qunitile Kites.”  Set for Plano/CDT, you’ll need to adjust them to your region.

On Saturday afternoon, one of a number of “Quntile Kites” comes into existence.  (See, also, Weekend Forecast.)

The Quintile Kite is the tip of a very large “iceberg” of Higher Order Harmonics:

A “trapezoid” of quintiles emerges here, involving Saturn, Mercury, Neptune, and the Moon.  A septile is present along with several noviles.  (“Much like the number seven, Septiles contain spiritual power and imply the possibility of cosmic intervention.”  And, from the same source: “Noviles are related to the nine muses and to the ennead. The novile conveys a somewhat charismatic, transcendental, mystical force, latent karmic details and spiritual growth. Noviles can indicate ceremony and relate to marriage.”)

For the night owls, Saturday at 4:44 am is powerful:

If you can buy a lotto ticket at this time, then this is the time to do it.

Saturday at 8:13, some people will wake up to a new sense of spirituality.  They will integrate the recent Full Moon events into their world.  This will be a moment of profound serenity for some.

Even greater insights on this same topic emerge by 2213 CDT:

The remainder of the night looks similar, and we awake with answers from Dreams to reduce to tangible form now that the Moon has moved into practical Capricorn on Sunday.
