2016-09-16 Appulse Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon)

First of all, let’s clarify the basic message of this Full Moon / Eclipse: you have much to accomplish in the next month to eighteen months, some of the projects are overdue, you have the energy to do it if you can avoid unproductive and unnecessary anger (note that SOME anger, sometimes, CAN be productive!), and you will have to form temporary allegiances with people who have the potential to later betray you.  THAT is the basic message.

How do we get this?  First, Mercury is Retrograde and less than a week away from the Direct Station.  This FM/Eclipse must involve projects on hold, details that must be attended to, and the resurrection of old projects whose time has come.

Next, since this is a Full Moon, it will govern the next two weeks the strongest but could govern a period of up to eighteen months because an eclipse is involved.  The time period may vary based on other factors such as subsequent eclipses, subsequent Mercury retrograde / direct stations, and patterns in your personal chart or the charts of those around you.

Finally, this eclipse has a number of T-Squares in play, including a very “tight” (potent, powerful) T-Square with Mars in Sagittarius squaring the Sun in Virgo and Moon in Pisces.  Mars is at 23 degrees and Sun/Moon at 24 degrees, and in many cases (but not all) this involves Algol aspects in the birth chart.  If you have Algol near 24 degrees (as many do) ans aspected in your birth chart, then you will likely “feel” this one.  Moon is also close to Chiron (health, education, and sometimes both; the “wounded healer”) and those issues may be in play.  (More on that in a moment.)

We could stop there, regarding the mutable T-Square, but ANOTHER mutable T-Square is present, this one involving Saturn in Sagittarius, squaring the Nodes.  Note that Neptune is conjunct the South Node, and this makes sense because the third (of three) Saturn square to Neptune recently perfected.

This mix (Nodes, Saturn, and Neptune) brings in a heavy dose of “karma” tempered by problems with “reality checks.”  (aka “Oops, my reality check just bounced.”)  No matter which side of it you are on, you are WRONG here.  (That is what you wanted to hear, right?)

If you are being practical and realistic (Saturn) then you lack vision and will never accomplish your heart’s desire (Neptune).  And if you are a bit too dreamy, then you lack the necessary practical effort to accomplish it, either.  The real answer is in balance.  Some dreams can never be accomplished but, also, sometimes we surprise ourselves.  BOTH of these contradictory and paradoxical truths are necessary.

We present the chart of the FM / Eclipse, filtered for T-Squares:

While many (most?) other astrologers have focused on the Mars / Eclipse T-Square, we believe that you cannot safely ignore the T-Square with Vesta (traditions) in Cancer (family in particular but also water, liquids, oceans, and related) at the apex, Uranus (23 Aries) squaring Vesta on one side, and Venus (love, money, health) / Astraea (law, lawyers, and the legal system) / Hygeia (health and healthcare) in Libra (very STRONG for Astraea) on the other side.

We would not be surprised to see important lawsuits filed at this time, or events that lead to important lawsuits, or both.  These will tend to involve health and healthcare (Hygeia AND Venus) especially involving females (Venus) and maybe cosmetics or beauty products (Venus).  Do pay attention to these possible issues that may affect some of you, particularly if you are twenty three degrees of a Cardinal sign (i.e. Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn).  We suspect that those born near 23 Capricorn (January 12th to January 14th) may feel this especially strongly.

More obviously affected are the mutables (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces) at twenty three degrees, and we think those at 23 Gemini (June 12th to June 14th) will feel this especially strongly.

What does “feel” mean?  It means that you will have “strong” energy and that is very good or very bad with not much in between depending upon your “level of advancement” (which is New Age speak for the ability to harness and direct the energy and circumstances to your will).  For mutables, this might be more of “surfing” the energy and circumstances (as you tend to do anyway) rather than “harnessing” the energy and circumsntances.  Other signs would be wise to work on developing those same skills to the degree possible.  (I am certain that a Taurus surfer exists somewhere in the world, maybe several of them, but it is a bit difficult to imagine a piece of granite gliding atop a wave.  I suppose anything is possible.  I have seen the universe produce some rather curious events and circumstances in my lifetime.)

So, in summary, you must address ALL THREE sets of issues (T-Squares) to “get this right.”

Most forecasts stop there, but we will not.  (OK, I admit it.  That was a self-serving advertisement.  Yes, it is true.  I AM a solar Leo.  The only reason I can do astrology is that 11th house stellium.  In a sense, I am an “Aquarius in Leo clothing.”  But, I digress.)

The pesky matter of that Rosetta remains.  Short term alliances are essential to accomplish what you must get done, whether it is in the next two weeks or next eighteen months, but the fact of the matter is that the Rosetta pattern tends to bring treachery.  People not only tend to “sell out,” but they do so easily.  Expect no loyalty no matter how sincere they may seem.  Here is the same chart, but filtered for the Rosetta pattern:

At this point you should have enough to work with.  For some people, maybe many people, this is a special and rare opportunity.  (As, curiously, much of 2016 has been.)  Use it wisely.  (2017 and points forward will be a very wild roller coaster.  You will look back at these days longingly.  Trust me on that!)

Love it or hate it, the period that started “about” August 15th is soon coming to an end.  We will have a major shift, maybe a previously unthinkable shift, soon.  (This might involve presidential politics.)  Expect it.
