Some time over a decade ago, and before I started this blog, I discovered the work of Jonathon Cainer.  He was a standard “Sun sign” style newspaper astrologer in the UK, but he was also much more than that.  His daily entries had a remarkable quality to them that I describe as “philosophical.”  While others, myself included, would focus in on the details of what, say, a Sagittarius Moon / Gemini Sun type full moon had to say, Cainer would zoom out and speak in lyrical words of poetry about the bigger picture of such a turn of events.

He was, in a word, inspiring.

So, I was disappointed to discover this morning, May 19th, that he had passed away on May 2nd of this year, 2016.  No chance now of him reading that email that I kept thinking about sending him for years but then not sending because I wanted to remain anonymous.  No chance of somehow showing up in England and having a chance encounter where I might speak to him for a moment.  The windows are closed, and the best I can do is an analysis of his birth and death charts (based on available data) in his memory.

His birth chart is remarkable, having both a Stretched Pentagram and a Diamond in it.  These tend to be rather rare, and he had both of them.  We show the birth chart for the Stretched Pentagram first:

Cainer (Birth, Stretched Pentagram)

It is the kind of chart, from the perspective of patterns, that is nothing short of amazing.  Here is the birth chart, again, with the Diamond highlighted:

Cainer (Birth, Diamond, Beginner)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Much of the Diamond and Stretched Pentagram overlap.  The evening of Winter’s Solstice 2012 (aka “The End of the World as We Know It”) had a Diamond in it, and while 2012 came and went without the end of the world, we can say that this period of years, marked by the Uranus / Pluto squares (or, as Cainer called it: “the bell tolls seven times”) has been remarkable in changes and upheaval (“Arab Spring,” “Black Lives Matter,” the dominance of “smart phones” in our collective lives, the candidacy of Donald Trump for President, etc.)

Cainer had other patterns also.  He had a “Square Key” which is really two interlocked “Huber Learning Triangles.”  These tell us what his biography said: he worked through some rather intense “karma” to reach the point he did in life.  Life was not particularly easy for him in the beginning, and arguably it was probably fairly tough even after he had acquired fortune and fame.

Here is the chart filtered for the Square Key:

Cainer (Birth, Square Key)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Just in case that was not enough, he also had a “Double Yod Key” (DYK).  This tells us he was face with many tough decisions, the kind where you always look back and wonder “what if I had taken the other path”?  Filtered for DYK:

Cainer (Birth, Double Yod Key)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The DYK is hard to see because it is built into his other patterns.  But, if we filter for yods, we find three of them, and they are a bit more obvious:

Cainer (Birth, Double Yods)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This is NOT an “easy” life.  It is spent worrying about “what if” I had done something else.  But Cainer was also born with the ability to accomplish much, and he did.

Cainer (Birth, Rosetta, Beginner)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Finally, we see a Rosetta in the birth chart.  We interpret this as “unstable alliances,” and from what we know this was true as well.  He moved back and forth between newspapers as shifting alliances pushed him to do just that.

If we filter for a Grand Cross we do not find one, but if we filter for T-Squares, then a slightly “loose” Grand Cross is obviously present (and a source of tremendous energy and the ability to “get things done”):

Cainer (Birth, T-Squares)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

A 5th Harmonic filter shows a triangular pattern (two quintiles and a biquintile) involving Mars, Pallas, and Venus:

Cainer (Birth, 5th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We might add here that his highly activated Neptune near Midheaven is an indicator of psychic abilities.  It can also indicate alcohol or drug problems or some kind of involvement (he did manage a bar at one point).  We suspect that he felt many people “pulling” on him.  (Neptune can be the savior / martyr complex as well.)

Seventh harmonic in the birth chart also contains a triangular pattern and is sufficiently activated to indicate, again, these “karmic” issues to work through:

Cainer (Birth, 7th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Vesta/Hygeia, Neptune, and Sun compose the triangular pattern and indicate, again, both psychic abilities and physical illness as well.  (We suspect that long term / chronic illness may have plagued him but that he did not disclose it publicly.)

Now to the death chart.  A single pattern dominates: a hard rectangle!

Cainer (Death, Hard Rectangle)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

One other pattern is present in the death chart: a Kite (if you are willing to use North / South lunar nodes):

Cainer (Death, Kite)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that the remainder of the kite is formed by Mercury and Pluto, both retrograde.  It is almost as if the cosmic said “OK we will give you a little more time to accomplish something, and then it is time to go.”  We may never know what that “something” was because it likely dealt with family and financial matters.  But he had received a reprieve of some kind from what was likely a “close call” of some kind earlier.  (Again, we will likely never be able to confirm or deny this.)  This kite also says that someone, somehow, greatly benefited from his death!  (What could that mean?)

Seventh Harmonic is also interesting:

Cainer (Death, 7th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Mars, Astraea, and Sun are involved in a triangular 7th harmonic pattern (made of a TriSeptile and two BiSeptiles).  We wonder if some kind of legal issues were about to emerge at the time of his death.  (Again, we would bet that this is something private despite 2 out of 3 planets being above ground.)

Finally, we present the bi-wheel without patterns or much analysis except to note that his second Saturn return was upon him (and the one for the author of this blog is not too far away either).  Saturn returns often “take us home,” and that is what happened for him.

We have little more to add to this analysis, especially since we prefer our readers dig into it for themselves.  But, he was a giant in the field, and he will be missed.  And, as an aside, my own coming Saturn return leaves me rather “nervous.”

Full Moon 2016-04-22 (Hard Rectangle)

Full Moon 2016-04-22 (Hard Rectangle)

For anyone who wants to check either upcoming or previous full moons or new moons, we offer pages that cover both categories of lunations for 2016. Here is a list of New Moons for 2016, and here is a list of Full Moons for 2016.

We note five patterns associated with this FM: Hard Rectangle, Thor’s Hammer, Hele, Kite(s), and T-Square(s).

We have been omitting T-Squares because they are still quite common when anything aspects the now dissolving Uranus / Pluto square (discussed extensively both elsewhere and on this site).  However, we now have continuing T-Squares involving Jupiter (Virgo), Saturn (Sagittarius), and Neptune (Pisces), and since this set involves other bodies and points (Nodes, Chiron, Hygeia, and Mars) we believe it is worth addressing this set of T-Squares as well.

This is a very “early” Moon-Scorpio/Sun-Taurus FM, and it is the day after Adolf Hitler’s birthday.  Entertainment figures Chyna and Prince died within the last 48 hours, and we would not be surprised to see another one (or more) go at this time.  To say the least, this energy is “tough.”

This period of time reminds us of the period circa January 8, 2016 with the death of David Bowie and Glenn Frey.  Bowie’s death was within 48 to 72 hours prior to the Capricorn New Moon of January 9, 2016.

[We may revise this blog post later to reflect other events that occur concurrent with the FM of 2016-04-22]

While I am not a numerologist (I am not certain how it works), I do note the following (for those time zones where the FM occurs April 22nd): (1) the day is a master number (22); (2) month + day is a higher order master number (44); and, depending on how you reduce numbers, year/month/day is also higher order (2016=7; + 04 -11; 11 + 22 = 33).  So, arguably, in different forms we have 22, 33, and 44.  (I am certain others will note this, and I expect those who claim numerology as their domain to have something to say about it.)

Let’s begin the astrological analysis of patterns with the Hard Rectangle, since it is the rarest of the patterns present (we believe “rare patterns” represent a sort of cosmic “punctuation mark”).

Here is the chart for the 2016-04-22 Full Moon, filtered for the Hard Rectangle:

2016-04-22 Full Moon (Hard Rectangle)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This pattern involves the Sun, Moon and Nodes (Rahu and Ketu to Vedic astrologers).  Many (most? all?) of the traditional astrologers do not like using the Nodes in aspects / patterns.  This is because the Nodes are points rather than actually bodies.  The Nodes are a function of the Earth’s orbital path relative to the Earth and are mathematically determined (as opposed to “heavenly bodies” which, at least in theory, can be observed).

So, whether or not you accept this pattern (or any other that uses the Nodes) depends on whether or not you believe the Nodes affect you.  If you do, then this is an unusually intense Full Moon (FM) because the Nodes (aka “Karma”) form a Hard Rectangle (a very energetic and often dangerous pattern) with the FM.  You can accomplish much at this time, despite the upcoming Mercury Retrograde (and other retrogrades) if you keep your focus by watching your temper.  Avoid dangerous people, places, and things (unless that is your job, and I expect that police, investigators, and intelligence agencies will be very busy at this time along with scientists who explore dangerous topics (venomous snakes, etc.)), and avoid BEING a dangerous person yourself.

Just in case you somehow did not get the previous message, a Thor’s Hammer pattern is also present.  This is a notoriously dangerous aspect, but, again, it can be channeled to get things done.  You know what to do: follow the prescription we just gave (stay focused; avoid temper / violence / explosions).

Here is the (same) chart, filtered for the Thor’s Hammer:

2016-04-22 Full Moon (Thor's Hammer)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

As you can see from this version of the chart, the North Node, Saturn, and the Sun form this pattern.  The early (“too early to tell”) Sun is at the Apex, with Saturn (“tests, trials, and tribulations) on one leg and the North Node (“hard karma”) on the other leg.  With so many retrogrades in play, we recommend that you avoid “banging your head” on projects that will not budge at this time and focus instead on the highest priority projects where you can make actual progress.  (You may also want to review your priorities at this time.)

We also have a Hele present, and it tells us contradictory messages!  One the one hand, with Sun/Moon in the “too early to tell” degrees, it tells us that there are some things (IMPORTANT things) that you do not yet know about the alliances you are about to form.  Are they organized crime?

And, if YOU are organized crime, then are they the undercover police that will finally seal your fate?

Yet, Scorpio-Taurus tells us that if you try to get out of this alliance “somewhere down the road,” then there will be hell to pay.  Be extremely careful with the new friends you choose at this time, and know that they may have far more power than you can possibly realize at this moment.

Here is the chart for the Hele:

2016-04-22 Full Moon (Hele)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Mercury / Vesta (together) is on one leg with the North Node (there it is again!), and Uranus and Saturn are on the other leg.  You will have to choose one or the other.

All of this sounds challenging, and it is.  But a ray of hope is present.  Kites (multiple, overlapping) are present in this chart, and for those that can see them (and harness them), powerful opportunities are present.

Here is the same chart, filtered for the kites:

2016-04-22 Full Moon (Kites)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Mercury and Pluto form this kite, along with the Nodes (again), so this opportunity will be present for one to three days, possibly longer as slow as Mercury is moving at this time.  Some time after the Mercury Retrograde station, it will open for a second “act” in the play.  But, if you really do want to seize this window of opportunity then you need to do it now.  The other variants will give you a chance to “clean up” things that result from Sun/Moon being in the “too early to tell” period.

Finally, we address the T-Squares.  They are a third pronouncement of the same kind of message that the Hard Rectangle and Thor’s Hammer bring: much energy, the potential for anger and violence, and great potential for accomplishment if the energy is properly funneled.

Here is the chart, filtered for the T-Squares:

2016-04-22 Full Moon (T-Square)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

More specifically, what is involved here are mutables (Planets in mutable signs), and long term planets are present in each sign that forms the T-Square (three of four mutable signs: Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces).

Virgo / Pisces focuses on the issues of work and play in general along with questions regarding attention to detail (does it help by identifying important issues or does cause harm by wasting time and other resources).  They also address healthcare, with Virgo focused on healthcare providers (nurses and physicians and similar) and Pisces focuses on the illness (and how to “heal” from it (including death)).

Sagittarius forms the apex of the T-Square (with the Malefics Mars and Saturn there, both retrograde), and we find that answers to these work/play isseus (or healthcare issues) are likely located in either higher education (Universities and similar) or the legal system.

The T-Squares (multiple, overlapping) provide guidance on where you should consider focusing your efforts at this time: work, play (or rest and recovery), health, healthcare, higher education, and the legal system.  Since we are dealing with mutables, we should be looking to “wrap up” current issues and move on to new ideas and new projects.

The Death of Whitney Houston

February 12, 2012 at 4:11 am | Posted in Astrology, BadDays | Comments Off on The Death of Whitney Houston
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I was never a fan of Whitney Houston.  I did not dislike her; I just was not a fan.

However, I took notice of her.  We somehow seemed to be karmicly linked in an inverted pattern: when her life was getting better mine seemed to get worse and vice versa.  In recent years, she seemed locked in a downward death spiral.  In contrast, my life has been rising and improving on many levels.  2011 was a “banner year” for me; I was not quite surprised when I learned that she died today (technically yesterday, but I have not been to sleep yet).

The entire thing felt very astrological, and I had not posted in a long time.  I will not have a window to post again until March or April.  So, here is my lone post until I can return.

I note the following ideas which are well documented in the media:  (1) she had a significant alcohol / drug problem; (2) she had repeatedly attempted recovery; and (3) we do not (yet) know the cause of death.  I draw the following conclusions: (1) she really wanted to be clean & sober but seemed unable to maintain that condition and (2) we do not (yet) know her cause of death.  What I am really saying is that, although some may infer drugs, she might have been perfectly clean.

This last idea is not so far-fetched.  I have a clear memory of the day that I heard that Waylon Jennings died.  I heard it in the early morning, and I think that he died the night or afternoon before.  We learned that he had been clean & sober for 10 years, but that diabetes had led to his death.  I learned subsequently that this type of death is common among people in recovery: the booze & drugs causes so much damage that diabetes, liver failure, and similar disorders cause a death at an early age.  That is a heartbreak.  And, maybe that is what happened to Whitney.  We’ll find out soon, and I’ll likely edit this post with updates.

Now to the Astrology.

I cast a chart for the moment that I heard of her death.  My consistent methodology is to allow the software determine this.  That is, I operate on the idea that my idea or realization is not fully manifest until I open a chart of the current date and time.

For my initial analysis, I used this chart as a proxy for time of death.  Generally, this chart differs from the death chart mainly (1) by Ascendant and (2) by Lunar position.  (Different parts of the country, also, but that is mainly manifest in construction of the Ascendant.)  So, just to do a quick analysis, I checked for birth charts from several sources.  I settled on http://www.astro.com/astro-databank/Houston,_Whitney  That chart looks like this:

The Aries and Leo planets, including Sun and Moon, tell us who she was.  She was vibrant and sparkling.  But, the Pisces ascendant gave her both the ability to touch people’s hearts AND the alcohol and drug problems.  For her, those were inseparable.  However, the vast majority of us could not see this inner pain and turmoil, even when she documented it in her movie “The Bodyguard.”

I like the list of aspects provided here:  http://www.strangehouse.com/option,com_horoscope/year,2012/month,02/day,11/user_id,whitneyhouston

That list shows several things: (1) for her, the phrase “she is now at peace” is very true; if I heard that she “passed in her sleep” then I would not be surprised and (2) some kind of strong emotional issue either came to a head or had come to a head (Moon OPP Moon; transiting Mars square natal Pluto).

I note that she had experienced her fourth Jupiter return.  Much discussion has been made of people being carried away by Saturn, but Jupiter can do this as well.  Arguably, the life lessons she taught and learned were Jovian in nature: she lived a larger than life personna as dramatized in “The Bodyguard.”  That movie illustrated some of the pitfalls of being a “larger than life” personna.  After her death, and at the time I received the news, transiting Moon opposed natal Jupiter.

For a more in depth analysis, see this analysis by Jude:  http://judecowell.wordpress.com/2012/02/12/whitney-houstons-sad-passing-w-an-astro-note-about-fights-while-married/

A bi-wheel might be helpful.  The inner wheel is the birth chart, and the outer is when I received the announcement:

We see from the Bi-Wheel that she also had a 12th house stellium of transiting planets.  (These planets were in natal 12th house, the house of self-undoing.)

I know that a fair number of you want the actual death chart.  She was pronounced at 3:55 PM PST, but reports say Paramedics found her unresponsive and performed CPR for 20 minutes.  Actual time of death could have been earlier.  Oddly, an argument could be made for a slightly later time of death (the culmination of opposition of transiting Moon to natal Moon).  I note that the same four transiting planets that formed a stellium in her natal chart are in the 8th house (Death House) in this chart.

And, I have this to say: Jupiter is saying that she had completed her mission here.  But Chiron disagrees.  Chiron says that if she had stayed with us long enough for Chiron to return, she might have finally found that special healing she was looking for.  And, in doing so, she had additional lessons to offer all of us, even a self-described non-fan like me.
