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.
