Mercury Direct Station February 20, 2021

Most interesting about this chart are (1) Moon conjunct North Node and (2) Moon biseptile Sun, both at the time of the Mercury Direction Station.

After the weather disaster in Texas, and also other parts of the nation, this chart tells us “it ain’t over yet.”  Care on this date, and the next few days is imperative.  Caution will pay dividends.  Impulsive behavior courts disaster.

“Poets, priests, and politicians,” who “have words to thank for their positions” will find that finding words is tough on any Mercury Station, but this one might have the curious contradiction of certain deep insights (Moon/Node biseptile Sun).  Breakthroughs can be had.  Write down the ideas, you may not have all of the pieces yet.  Persist; they will come later.

A Thor’s Hammer is also present.  Again, anger and impulsive behavior can be particularly dangerous at this time! (Avoid dangerous “people, places, and things.”  And, if one of those includes you, go somewhere and take a nap or take a time to meditate and practice deep breathing.  Whatever “it” is, “it” is not worth it!)

A few exceptional individuals will harness today’s energy to produce BRILLIANT works of music or poetry or visual arts or photography or videography.  If you are a creative, this COULD be your moment (IF you can avoid anger and impulsivity)!

2021 Aquarian New Moon : Double Thor’s Hammer Key + Multiple Rosetta

Lunations vary. Much as “opinions vary” (immortal words uttered by the Philosopher “Dalton” in “Road House” (played by Patrick Swayze)), lunations vary. Some are, frankly, boring. Some are more interesting.

This one is more interesting.

First of all, for many events, this New Moon (NM, hereafter) is the “trigger” associated with upcoming Saturn Square Uranus. One of my teachers said it many times: often the day of a huge, arguably “cataclysmic” outer planet event is a dull day with little to nothing compelling happening (except for births or deaths that happen on that date). But, according to my old mentor, MANY times the immediately preceding (or following) lunation (NM or FM) is a “trigger,” setting in motion critical events.

I believe that is true here. The NM of Thorsday triggers much. Some of it scares me.

Six Major Considerations for this New Moon

Here is my list of “issues” with this NM:

  1. Thor’s Hammer Key : I have never seen a book describe this (at all!) and Solar Fire (as of version 9) does NOT have a built-in search for this (I would like to see it added). Similar to a “double yod key,” the Thor’s Hammer Key (or, if you prefer, “God’s Fist Key”) is a combination of two Thor’s Hammer patterns interlaced on one side. We have that in this chart, and (similar to Adam Lanza who had a Thor’s Hammer in his birth chart) the Thor’s Hammer can make “things” go “boom.” I will not say it happens every time, but the POTENTIAL is there! (Be careful! Avoid dangerous “things” (people, places, and things. Offer a kind word rather than an angry insult. Apologize. Watch “Unhinged” again! Here is a question : Is the character played by Russell Crowe really the villain? Are you sure? How do YOU act in those situations? Would you apologize? Do you hunt someone down if they don’t apologize to you? Or, are you a doormat? Do you feel your blood boil sometimes? Did you “just want an apology” when you were having “a really bad day”? Have you felt that lately?)
  2. Rosettas, multiple and interlaced. One side opposes the other. Oddly, both sides seem cooperative. But both sides have HUGE internal battles waged “behind closed doors.” Expect the impeachment trial of Donald Trump to prove to be “interesting.” (Let’s face it, regardless of what the outcome may be, dissatisfaction will be vented extensively, maybe by BOTH sides.)
  3. 7th Harmonic activity : Karmic (always) and (sometimes) scientific or technical breakthroughs. What appears to be a four planet pattern with a trapezoidal pattern is in play. Whether or not that is true depends on how tight you set your orbs, but (if you are willing to loosen your constraints) the pattern looks interesting.
  4. 5th Harmonic : The 5th Harmonic looks deadly boring UNTIL you realize that Jupiter forms a bi-quintile with Vesta, and Vesta was involved in the aforementioned 7th harmonic activity. Specifically, Sun/Moon (this IS a NM!) form a 7th harmonic aspect with Vesta. So, what DO the Sun/Moon (father and mother) want to talk to Jupiter (the philandering prodigal son born to be king) through Vesta (collectives and their traditions and rituals)? I am not sure, but it looks interesting. AND, the distance from Jupiter to Sun/Moon is 10d40m (ten degrees and forty minutes), almost exactly 1/33 of the “wheel in the sky” (that keeps turning).
  5. Grand Cross : We have mentioned this in every recent chart. Neptune and Vesta (whoops, there it is! Again!) oppose each other and the Nodes square both. This is a curious aspect, and it is in play long enough to color this window of time from before the inauguration until ? until ? until ? (Maybe March? April? later?) Seeing collectives (including religious ones) in opposition to dreams, music, poetry, religion, drugs, and alcohol, and FATE (the Nodes) insisting on that conflict, makes for “interesting times” to experience. The Neptune-Vesta-Nodes GC might also be symbolic of the Pandemic as it continues into 2021.
  6. T-Squares: Ordinarily, we can ignore these when looking at a Grand Cross. BUT, these are NOT ordinary times! Complete separate from the previously mentioned T-Square, we have Hygeia opposing Saturn. Interesting by itself, the fact that Saturn is making its first square to Uranus (since April, 2001) creates the T-Square. When Moon reaches 7 Scorpio (in less than three weeks), a different Grand Cross will form. The Neptune-Vesta-nodes GC is a source of discontent and dissent, but the Hygeia-Saturn-Uranus-Moon GC has the potential to cause radical shifts, deep change that may involve (more) violence.

Any given chart can be “farmed” at length for more meaning. We do that all the time with natal charts. But these six key patterns are enough to be “interesting” as the NM “pulls the trigger” on the Saturn-Uranus square on February 17th.

Thor’s Hammer Key (Interlaced) :
A Potential for Violence or the Energy to Get Things Done (You Choose)

Here is the chart for the THK :

Uranus-Neptune-Hygeia-Astraea form this pattern. Uranus and Neptune are heavy hitters; they tend to shape the world for generations to come. Hygeia is “health and healthcare”; Astraea is “law and legal.”

You can piece together the rest. Stated simply, battles are brewing over healthcare and the laws that govern healthcare. But, if you watch the news, then you already knew that!

Rosettas : Opposing Sides Seem to Agree, But Internal Battles are Fierce

Here is the chart:

The massive activation of Mars (FOUR squares!) tells us this is a BIG FIGHT. Better be prepared!

7th Harmonic : Problems with Supply Chains Continue But Innovative Solutions Are Possible

Mars-Ceres-Saturn-Juno form the four planet pattern here. Mars and Saturn are, respectively, the “Lesser Malefic” and the “Greater Malefic,” but how do Ceres (food, supply chains, the grocery store having what you want, enough vaccine to “go around,” and similar) and Juno (traditional female family roles : mother-daughter-sister-aunt-niece but ESPECIALLY the wife angry at the philandering husband) fit in?

Without the modifers: how do Ceres and Juno fit in with Mars and Saturn? Whatever the case, frankly, it SOUNDS bad (geez, Mars & Saturn are in play here; Grant Lewi made much of Mars Square Saturn in Hitler’s natal chart). I don’t know about you, but it sounds scary to me!

Whatever the case, it will be “karmic” (a long overdue balancing of some kind) and (strangely) scientific and technical breakthroughs may result from it. Hold onto your hat!

We also note that Vesta (of the Grand Cross mentioned earlier) forms a TriSeptile with Sun/Moon at time of perfection of the NM. What does THAT mean? We are not certain, but it ties into the GC mentioned earlier and it will have something to say about our traditions and our collectives!

5th Harmonic

At first blush, this chart looks boring. But, then we see that a BiQuintile connects Vesta (!) with Jupiter (AND Venus!). What involvement of the King (and sometimes philandering husband) and his sweetheart, the ever lovely Venus, to these collectives and their ever important traditions? To be certain, Vesta is an important player here.

Grand Cross : Collectives Meet Their Destiny, A Tipping Point for Millions

At this point, the GC seems anti-climatic. But, in addition to the Saturn-Uranus square, it is the star for the moment. As seems ever true with Neptune, the pattern risks fading into the background with the other drama in play. But, the key issues of the day can be found here! Poetry and music can heal. Alcohol and drugs (and other addictions) can destroy. Which path do you choose?

Vesta makes this GC about collectives : (military, police, religious orders, healthcare workers). Neptune brings huge changes, some of which are deluded mis-steps and others will make their way into poetry and song.

T-Squares : A Signal of Radical Change Coming

Click to Open in New Tab

That brings us to the final pattern we will review : T-Squares. We ordinarily ignore those when a Grand Cross is in play (a “T” is just a GC with a piece missing), but another T is in play that will have importance in a few weeks when the Moon at 7 Scorpio will make it into a grand cross. (March 3rd)

This is a “fixed” T, and you can expect that some progress will come to a halt because people will choose to NOT give up their positions.

The Fixed Grand Cross is also known as “The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse,” particularly if at fifteen degrees. This one is at seven, but shakeups are still likely.

However, sometimes a GC can be highly productive. A bit of insight or “higher order thinking” can be helpful.

The ideas here are simply too good not to steal. However, when I use them in my analysis of the septile family, I will mention your name. By the way, what I have been reading about the Septile family is that it is “karmic,” a working through of issues that are part of destiny. Your thoughts on that? (Other sources also claim “scientific breakthroughs.”)

It’s kind of like the old story about the Brain and the Heart arguing about which Organ was Most Important to the Organism, when the Anus walked in, but if I had to Choose a single Angle as The Most Important one, I’d Choose the Septile.  That’s one seventh of the way ’round the Zodiacal loop.  The Seventh Harmonic is about Stillness in Readiness for Action, very Aikido-like.

I simplify interpretation of the Septile as Timing.  Think about that Prophesy that you’d meet your Soulmate in the Produce Department.  Unless your Soulmate works there, your Chances of meeting them are pretty slim if you don’t also know What Time You Need to Be There!  Of course it’d be Intuitive, but the “Left” Brain will understand what we mean.

In the 25 April 2020 Pluto Station chart there’s a rather remarkable chain of Septiles…

Thursday January 28th 2016

Thursday is a curious day in which we begin to feel a shift or see a turning of the tides.  Lunar aspects are nearly absent.  Major aspects are totally absent.  Higher order aspects tend to be influential and set the stage for a very “energetic” weekend.  The only conventional aspect is Sun semisextile Neptune, ordinarily a routine (annual) mild aspect that is typically overlooked.  You will feel it today, and it will tell you to both look to the future and to think of those less fortunate than yourself.  For some people, this is a good day to write a will or engage in similar estate planning.  Thinking of a future without yourself, and how your life can benefit those left behind, is a good use of this day.

Venus quintile Chiron confirms this.  Quintiles are about innovation, and Chiron is about teaching and healing and especially healing by means of teacher.  Mentor relationships are important today, and that dovetails well with the Sun semisextile Neptune aspect.

Sun is novile Chiron, and that means we can learn an important lesson or skill as we reach out to help others.  Venus is biseptile Jupiter, again emphasizing a “karmic” feel to all of this.  A late night Venus square brings a rough spot, but it will pass as we move into the ongoing powerful issues to be addressed this weekend.

Sun Sesquiquadrate Neptune 2015-10-15

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.

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.)

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:

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 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:

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.

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