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

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:

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:

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.

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.

Full Moon of December 6, 2014

December 3, 2014 at 11:38 pm | Posted in 2014, 2014-Lunations, Astrology, Lunations | 4 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

We live in complex and troubling times.  While that might could be said of any period of time (“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness”), we see a number of patterns activated during this full moon and are reminded of the disasters of 2010 (a series culminating in the Deepwater Horizon).

A number of astrologers have mentioned the ongoing series of Uranus / Pluto squares covering several years.  We do not need to cover that again here, but we do need to note the important of the context that aspect provides in the following discussion.  If everything was driven by loving trines, then maybe it would not matter.  But, that’s not true.  We have squares in general, and grand crosses and t-squares in particular.  And we have Thor’s Hammer (aka God’s Fist) patterns.  A rosetta and mystic rectangle tell us that we are (still) polarizing.  (Duh, you easily read that in the news.  But the astrology is consistent.)  A large number of 5th order harmonics tells us we can find creative solutions.  A large number of 7th order harmonics tells us that we are dealing with karma that insists that we find those solutions.

Step by step, here are the variants of the Full Moon Chart for December 6th of 2014.

1.  Grand Cross and T-Square

Full Moon 2014-12 December Squares

[Click to Enlarge]

If we allow ourselves to count the node, we have a long term grand cross that has been in play for some time and will continue.  This grand cross is an extended vision of the famous Uranus / Pluto squares discussed elsewhere.  It brings in the fate and karma of the North Node along with the issues of health, healthcare, and healing from the asteroid Hygeia.  Though the node is technically not a “planet” (or asteroid or other body), we suspect that this method of approaching the current variant of the Uranus / Pluto square yields the most insight.  We cannot ignore issues and disparities in our healthcare systems any longer.

The Full Moon combination of Sun/Moon has Chiron (the “wounded healer”) square to it.  This is another signal that issues in health and healthcare must be dealt with, and Chiron blends in issues of education (particularly healthcare education, such as the training of healthcare professionals).  Expect to see changes in healthcare education, starting in 2015 and beyond.

2.  Grand Trines

We see a series of variants of a particular grand trine (Fire: Aries / Leo / Sagittarius) in this chart.  Grand trines are usually stabilizing influences, but this is a FIRE grand trine.  When tied in with the other aspects, what we see is that it likely provides an insistence on change and on the need for leadership in facilitating the needed change(s).

Full Moon 2014-12 December Trines (Beginners)

[Click to Enlarge]

No matter which side you take on these current issues, you know that strong leadership is needed at this time.  Few people can honestly believe that we can move forward from where we are without certain major changes in our system happening.

3.  Kites

Kites sometimes occur with grand trines, and the signify opportunities.  One of the strongest here involves the node (opportunity, but HARD WORK needed to manifest that opportunity), and the other integrates the full moon itself (and this means it is particularly tied to the days of December 5/6/7).  Somebody will make some serious money from this, perhaps a HUGE windfall.

Full Moon 2014-12 December Kites (Beginners)

[Click to Enlarge]

Since Jupiter / Uranus are involved in this second kite, this will be a time where we might see some huge “lotto” (figuratively if not literally) windfalls.  Somebody will win big.

We would also argue that this interlaced pattern of kites constitutes the emergence of a new pattern, perhaps it could be called something like a “twin kite key.”  (It looks a bit like a house, so it could be the “house that kites built.”  But “twin kite key” is more succinct.)

4. Rosettas and Mystic Rectangle

We see two rosettas (highly polarizing in their influence) and a mystic rectangle (an odd mix of conflict in some areas but stability in others) in play in this full moon:

a. Rosettas

Full Moon 2014-12 December Rosettas (Beginners)

[Click to Enlarge]

We note that both of these involve the North Node (“fate” and hard work).

b. Mystic Rectangle

Full Moon 2014-12 December Mystic Rectangle (Beginners)

[Click to Enlarge]

The North Node is also involved here as well as the current full moon and Uranus.  This combination likely indicates a fleeting but powerful opportunity; the window will close soon.

5.  Square Key

Full Moon 2014-12 December Square Key (Beginners)

[Click to Enlarge]

Yet another pattern telling us of work to be done.  Additionally, this pattern indicates that we may be dissatisfied with the results not being quite what we had hoped for.  Sun / Uranus / Hygeia / Chiron in this pattern ties together the health and healing issues again.

6.  5th Order Harmonics

We see a number of 5th order aspects (quintiles and bi-quintiles) in this chart, telling us that creative solutions are available if we are open to receive them.

Full Moon 2014-12 December 5th Harmonic (Beginners)

[Click to Enlarge]

7.  7th Order Harmonics

We also see a number of 7th order harmonics.  This tells us that we had better avail ourselves of the available creative solutions (and do the work necessary to make them happen) or “else.”

A 2014 Time Map of Septiles (and some discussion of the Astrology of the Ebola Outbreak)

Since we are in a massively creative (as well as massively dangerous!) period, I thought I would deviate from my recent tendency to focus on New Moons, Full Moons, Mercury Retrogrades and such similar events.  Using Solar Fire 8 (with some email guidance from Madalyn Hillis-Dineen of Astrolabe), I decided to explore some higher order aspects.  What follows is a “time map” of outer planet septiles (and similar aspects such as tri-septiles) for the next 12 months (starting Oct 1, 2014).

Septile aspects (and variants) are indicative of periods of “karma” or “reaping what you have sown.”  (However, if you are a seamstress, it might be a case of “ripping what you have sewn.”)  Outer planets (or “generational planets”) tend to affect “all” (or “most”) of us, with some more directly (and intensely) affected than others.  Keep an eye out and let me know if any of these dates turn out to be “significant” for you.

The Jupiter / Neptune TriSeptile (TSpt) pair of March 30, 2015 / May 5, 2015 looks particularly interesting.  I suspect that, if the current (October, 2014) issues with EBola have not been resolved by next spring (2015), that we will see critical turning points on or near those two dates.

Note the Jupiter TriSeptile Chiron (exact) aspect of October 14, 2014.  On that date:

  • Germany On October 14, the first patient in Germany dies from EVD,  a 56-year-old Sudanese UN employee who had been the third medical evacacuee to Germany, at St Georg Hospital in Leipzig.
  • USA On October 14 anonymous nurses allege that there were no protocols in the treatment of Thomas Eric Duncan at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, that their protective gear was insufficient, and that hazardous waste was allowed to pile up.
  • Also on October 14, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings announced that Nina Pham’s one-year-old Cavalier King Charles spaniel would be kept in isolation and monitored at Hensley Field.

Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_Ebola_virus_disease_epidemic_timeline#October_2014

Outer planet aspects are VERY SLOW compared to others, so the weeks preceding and following the exact aspect bear inspection as well.

We note: (1) prior to the discovery of Neptune, Jupiter was associated with healing (and, therefore, illness) as well as continuing to be associated with animals (such as Bentley?); (2) Chiron is directly associated with healing, being called sometimes the “wounded healer.”  (Wounder healer = infected nurse?)

Climbing a bit further out on the metaphorical limb, the Saturn BiSeptile (BSpt) Neptune aspect of October 16th seems to tie in the recent woes of the financial markets.

My hope is that the Ebola (and Enterovirus EV-D68 and any other contagious diseases) outbreak is contained, the financial markets are healed as well, and that these karmic aspects find a different outlet for expression of their significance.

Higher Order Harmonics: Weekend of April 30th 2010

April 30, 2010 at 1:03 am | Posted in Astrology, Patterns, Predictions, Weekends | Comments Off on Higher Order Harmonics: Weekend of April 30th 2010
Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

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.
