Full Moon 2016-07-19 Diamond Pattern

The Full Moon of July 19th of 2016 has a rare diamond pattern in it.


[Click Image to Enlarge]

We will have more to say about this FM as it approaches perfection, but you need to know now that this indicates we are in a window of rare and powerful importance.  Diamond patterns are rare, and we had one on the Winter’s Solstice of 2012 (when many people predicted the end of the world).  We are not at the “end of the world,” but we (collectively) are facing major change, and this diamond pattern confirms that.

This is likely the most pattern rich lunation we have seen since we started the blog in 2008.  (But, you might want to compare this to the Full Moon of May 21st, also an important lunation this year.)  The following patterns are included in this particular lunation:

  • Diamond
  • Rosetta (several)
  • Hard Rectangle (has been associated with violence when not properly channeled)
  • Mystic Rectangle (a sign of rare opportunity and present in Hillary Clinton’s birth chart)
  • Kites (two, interlaced; signs of powerful opportunity)
  • Thor’s Hammer (aka God’s Fist, a pair of them in an incredibly rare configuration resembling a Star of David)
  • Grand Cross (sometimes associated with violence as we saw in late June of this year)
  • A Yod (sign of a decision; a “fork in the road” where we must decide with no turning back)

We will have more to say in the hours that come as this FM perfects, but we are just getting the basics out there for anyone else interested in patterns.  Let’s face it: we live in unusual times, and the days really are bringing new, and sometimes disturbing, events.

The Rosetta is a sign of quick alliances that might turn to treachery or deceit later.  Pick your “friends” carefully at this time.  This chart has SEVERAL of them:


[Click Image to Enlarge]

We have seen the Hard Rectangle previously associated with violence this year.  (Compare the Hard Rectangle of April 22nd.)  This FM has one of those, also:


[Click Image to Enlarge]

The Mystic Rectangle is also particularly rare.  We note that Hillary Clinton’s birth chart has one of these.  They bring special gifts and opportunities to a person, and they bring the same to a window of time and the events in that same window of time.


[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that in addition to containing the Full Moon itself (Cancer Sun opposed by Capricorn Moon), that the Mystic Rectangle also contains Astraea (law and lawyers) in Virgo (healthcare and accounting) opposite Chiron (the Wounded Healer and Teacher) in Pisces.  I bet major changes are happening that involve BOTH the legal system and the healthcare system.  (We may not be publicly aware of them, but they are happening.  The story will eventually come out.)

On a personal level, it is best to take care of either set of matters (legal system, healthcare, accounting / record keeping, and educational) at this time.  This is, clearly, a turning point.

We have two interlaced kites present.  This could be considered to be a “kite key” or something similar.  These are not just “kites” (windows of opportunity), they are “super kites” (huge windows of opportunity, if you have the eyes to see it).


[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that these Kites CONTAIN the Mystic Rectangle WITHIN them!  Open your eyes: something special is waiting for you!  We note that a similar pattern occurred with the Winters Solstice of 2015.

An incredibly rare pair of Thor’s Hammers are also present.  These are INCREDIBLY DANGEROUS, but they also contain the power to “get things done.”  Channel that energy (and anger) into a constructive process that harnesses the opportunity (opportunities, really) that are present.


[Click Image to Enlarge]

We call this unusual pair of Thor’s Hammer patterns a “Thor’s Hammer Star.”  (But, if you like to call them the “God’s Fist” patterns, then we would call this the “Star of God” pattern.  Truly this signals that God / the Universe / your Higher Power is speaking to you now.  Please listen!)  We note that each of the nodes (“Rahu” and “Ketu”) are each at the apex of each Thor’s Hammer pattern.  The nodes are considered “fate” or “karma” by many astrologers.

Also present is a Grand Cross.  The mutable grand cross of late June was discussed much by a number of astrologers.  The consensus was that it was associated with the shakeups and violence of that period.


[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that this is a CARDINAL Grand Cross.  The Mutable Grand Cross was about ENDINGS and cleaning things out.  This one is about launching new things, though we may still want to do some “cleaning out” during the next two weeks of the waning moon.

A Yod is also present:


[Click Image to Enlarge]

Yods are places where we MUST make a decision.  Even “deciding not to decide” (abdication) is a decision.  We are at a fork in the road.  We must choose and never look back.  The other path will always “look better,” but it, too, had its difficulties.  The time to decide is at hand.

Finally, we note the presence of a Grand Trine.  It is contained within the heart of the pair of kites we mentioned earlier.  It brings “good times” and can make us lazy when we should be working.  Do not let the opportunity slip by you.

We will add more, later, as we approach perfection of this FM.  But, for now, we have covered “the basics.”  And, in this case, those “basics” present to us very much to consider and act upon.

In Memory of Cainer

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)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

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.

Cainer BiWheel

[Click Image to Enlarge]

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.”

2016-03 W12: Forecasts for Week 12 of 2016

2016-03 W12: Forecasts for Week 12 of 2016

The Vernal Equinox is March 19th / 20th depending on your location (with Venus conjunct Neptune on the same day), and the next lunation (a Aries / Libra Full Moon) follows on March 23rd (Jupiter perfects a square to Saturn a few hours earlier on the same day).  You already feel Jupiter / Saturn (especially the financial markets do), and this is the second of three with the first being last fall.

Focused Yods are also present this month, and we can “get things done” during these periods (absent other considerations such as v/c moons):

 Focused Yod Enters   March 12 2016 10:52:06 pm (CST +6:00)
 Focused Yod Leaves March 14 2016 12:32:31 pm (CDT +5:00)
 Focused Yod Enters   Mar 17 2016 4:52:40 pm (CDT +5:00)
 Focused Yod Leaves Mar 20 2016 8:53:56 am (CDT +5:00)

March 2016 (Mars Out)

Archive of W11 forecasts

Week 12 (W12)

Sunday March 13th

Moon is v/c from 4:47 AM CDT until 4:04 PM CDT.  Since Daylight Savings Time went into effect overnight, the accompanying void seems somehow appropriate.  Slow down, be careful, avoid major purchases or commitments, and find some time to center yourself as Spring approaches.  Later tonight, after Moon enters Gemini, Moon squares Venus (Pisces) and opposes Mars (Sagittarius) to form a T-Square.  Chances are good that this is much ado about nothing.

Outer Planets: Jupiter (law, legal, higher education, long distance travel, and people related to these topics) perfects a long term opposition to Ceres (prosperity in general and food in particular) and issues related to these “come to a head” either over the weekend (a few days before), today, or in the next few days.  Two outer planet quincunxes perfect, also make this a bit of an unpleasant day.  (Jupiter quincunx Pallas, Chiron quincunx Astraea)

Monday March 14th

International Math Day, Pi Day, or Einstein’s Birthday: take your pick.  (“All of the above” is the right answer here.)  Informally, the Moon forms a very loose grand cross with an opposition to Saturn and squares to Neptune and Jupiter.  You will either accomplish much or nothing at all.  (No in-betweens on this one.)

Mercury squares Saturn, forcing you to pay attention to detail, but the perfection of Venus square Mars distracts you with issues of love and sex (or, if those don’t apply, family, power, & money).  Outer planets are relatively quiet, but Uranus triseptile Juno suggests that a kind move that is helpful to a family member who deserved better treatment in the past is a very good idea today.  But today is very important because of the Diamond Pattern present today along with other patterns.  In fact, the patterns tell us that this may be one of the most important days (or several days) this year, maybe in several years.

A Diamond Pattern (rare) is present today and starts March 14 2016 4:13:20 pm (CDT +5:00) and continues until March 14 2016 8:35:22 pm (CDT +5:00).

A Mystic Rectangle is present late in the day and tomorrow and makes this, possibly, one of the best two days for art and creativity:

Mystic Rectangle Enters Mar 14 2016 9:05:45 pm (CDT +5:00)
Mystic Rectangle Leaves Mar 15 2016 8:08:02 am (CDT +5:00)

A series of Thor’s Hammer Patterns are also present, so watch your temper and focus all that energy into “getting things done” (especially if they are artistic in nature).

Again, the patterns tell us that March 14th of 2016 may be one of the most important days (or several days) this year, maybe in several years.  The entire week is important.  Jupiter Trine Pluto with a Grand Quintile is an important turning point for some people, especially artists and other creatives.  We are setting the stage for the upcoming full moon / lunar eclipse.

Tuesday March 15th (Ides of March)

[Written in retrospective.]  Today a number of important elections occur.  Given the aspects and patterns of Monday and Wednesday, we believe you will see significant changes / events occur.  Mercury (Pisces) opposes Jupiter (Virgo), and Mercury also is sextile Pluto (Capricorn).  The three, together, form a triangular pattern that is yet another indicator of powerful changes.

Venus also perfects a semisquare to Uranus, adding both a sense of urgency and a sense of weirdness to the day.  Capture those unexpected insights if you cannot put them into practice today so that you can followup on them on another day if necessary.  But, if you can, take advantage of the “luck” of perfection of Jupiter Trine Pluto tomorrow to accomplish something amazing.

Wednesday March 16th

Jupiter Trine Pluto perfects today, the second in a series of three.  A Grand Quintile is also present earlier in the day, and that is a rare pattern that can produce powerful insights (genius level) as well as bode well for the development of creative works.  Take advantage of the rare opportunity that today presents as best you can.  Days like today are rare indeed.

Thursday March 17th

We note that the Moon is very busy today, perfecting seven aspects (not including higher order aspects such as quintiles and septiles). The afternoon and evening has a series of lunar trines on this traditional Irish holiday (the date of St. Patrick’s death), and we expect the evening to go well for most people (except anyone who consumes too much in the way of mood altering substances and contributes to an accident or other harmful situation).

Mercury conjunct Chiron today tells us that we have communications and transportation related to health, education or both. Much of today is about processing the earlier three days of the week.

Friday March 18th

A relatively benevolent Moon v/c begins after midnight (Moon Trine Sun) and ends near 4 AM CDT with the entry of the Moon into Leo. The moon is more quiet today than yesterday, with quincunx aspects to Venus (afternoon) and Neptune (evening). You may encounter a few glitches, but for most people they will be forgetten in a day or two and certainly by next week.

Outer planet aspects are far more busy (yesterday was relatively quiet with a Ceres / Uranus aspect bring a surprise regarding our prosperity (“The Visa is maxed out? Again?)).

Mars sesquiquadrate Uranus brings us some sense of urgency (possibly anger) to “get things done.”  Chiron opposite North Node (“Rahu” to some) means it is conjunct the South Node (“Ketu”) and, therefore, we have a temptation to “take the easy way out” or “cut corners” regarding some issue involving healthcare, education, or both.  (Don’t do it!)

Pallas does BiQuintile Hygeia, and we CAN have a brilliant insight into how to solve problems today.  Just focus your efforts, do not get derailed, do not cut corners, and do the work necessary.

Saturday March 19th

In most of the United States, except the Eastern Time Zone (EDT), the Vernal Equinox greets us late tonight.  (EU / UK experience this a half past 5 or half past 6 or later depending upon time zone.)

Sun biseptiles Saturn, and we should consider resolving some old karma or helping someone less fortunate than ourselves or both.  Sun quintiles Pluto, and we may encounter a very ingenious idea that either (a) helps us with the biseptiles (helping someone else) or (b) gives us a gift in the form of a smart idea that comes from providing said help.  In any case, they go together and they set the stage for the days to come at least until the Summer Solstice (late June) or possibly as long as the Vernal Equinox of next year (late March).  Venus septile Pluto confirms this emphasis on helping others.

Venus novile Uranus provides us with a gift of some sort this evening, an insight or useful skill, likely resulting from helping others (or maybe an insight because we failed to help; those can be hard lessons sometimes).

2015-03 Late March Patterns

March 23, 2015 at 9:47 pm | Posted in 2015, 2015-Lunations, Astrology, Lunations, Patterns | 5 Comments

After all of the excitement about the recent Solar Eclipse and Vernal Equinox on the same day, anything else seems anticlimactic.  But, as you may have heard on late night television advertisements: “But, wait, there’s more….”

Many of these patterns flow into the early April patterns that precede the Lunar Eclipse in April.  We will address those in a separate post.  We begin with a powerful yod, accompanied by a lesser yod, that dominates the sky from March 22nd through March 31st.  We present beginning and ending charts for this period and note that others may prefer to cast variants of these charts at other times and in other locales:

Yods of 2015-03-22 (Basic, 4 Day Duration)

…and here is the chart for the “end” of this period:

Yods (3-22) end (Basic)[Click Image to Enlarge]

Since what we are left with is Saturn at the apex of a yod with Hygeia on one leg and Astraea on the other, we are faced with a difficult (Saturn) decision between healthcare (Hygeia) and law (Astraea).  Other patterns intervene, and we have a complicated and nuanced period located between the two eclipses.

Please note, also, that since these patterns last anywhere from several hours to several days, maps are not appropriate (unless someone decides to focus on culmination of a particular aspect that is part of a pattern).

That said, we begin with the patterns of March 24, 2015, a crucially important day for some people.  Two patterns are in play (in addition to the larger yod previously mentioned): (1) a focused yod that lasts only a few hours but gives people the ability to “get things done” and (2) a kite (containing a grand fire trine) that tends to be feel good but is also capable of accomplishing much giving many people some “luck.”

No matter who you are, you will almost certainly have a window to accomplish something important on this date, and you want to make certain you do NOT miss that opportunity.

And here is the Kite:

As we write this, March 21st has passed.  Remember that day?  Did you find yourself forming some uneasy / unstable alliances with people who maybe were not “entirely trustworthy”?  That will repeat on March 28th.

We note that we discussed some other issues regarding alliances in the recent eclipse post.  You might recall that we said “that everything “points” to Jupiter, the real ‘winner’ in this war” which, translated, means only the lawyers win in these disputes.  (Among other things, Jupiter = the lawyers.)

If you cannot stay home, then know that this will not last and be careful what you say and who you associate with:

Rosettas of March 21st and March 28th:

2015-03-21 Rosetta

[Click Image to Enlarge]

2015-03-28 Rosetta

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Perhaps even more disturbing about the March 28th Rosetta is that it is arguably (at least) two overlapping Rosettas.  Multiple unstable alliances with much potential for treachery.  Be careful!

Polarization also emerges on the 29th and 31st, although these alliances are more trustworthy.  Do not be surprised to see extreme events involving the ongoing problems with law enforcement and the communities they police.  The 29th and 31st look particularly unstable for these issues, and the 31st also has a Thors hammer potentiating the danger.

March 29th Hele:

March 26th:

March 31st:

2015-03-31 Thors Hammer

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Similar to the yod(s) that bracket this period, the March 26th Thor’s Hammer lasts for several days, starting on March 26th and continuing through March 30th.  Again, be careful!

If somehow you “got it wrong” on March 24th, then you MIGHT have a “second bite at the apple” on March 29th.  Your position will likely be much weaker, but the opportunity will not be gone altogether until after this date.  An “almost” kite opens the window:

We end with the Diamond of March 31st:

2015-03-31 Diamond[Click Image to Enlarge]

Diamonds are particularly complex patterns and difficult to interpret.  The end of the Mayan Calendar in 2012 had a focused yod at the moment of the end followed by a diamond a few hours later.  “Not Much” seemed to happen, but the world continues to change in remarkable ways.  In particular, some astounding social change is afoot, and we will become different in ways that will make it difficult to remember or understand the current times.  (This is particularly true for anyone alive who can remember the 1950’s, 1960’s, or 1970’s and can compare them to today.  The 1980’s movie series “Back to the Future” made this point then, but that was in the 1980’s and we have radically changed since then!)

We have seen other diamonds, such as Thanksgiving of 2014 and the Early 2013 Diamonds, but they do tend to be rare.

Exactly how this manifests depends on how we handled the earlier patterns.  The Heles, Rosettas, and Thor’s Hammers are to be of concern.

Keeping in mind the warning about the earlier patterns, we will take a risk and offer the idea that, for many of us, this small window of time, only a few hours in size, will offer a special gift.  With Saturn at the apex of the diamond, we are told that this is not an “easy” gift but one which we must work for, and it will involve hard work.  With Vesta and Hygeia involved, it will likely involve questions of tradition and healthcare.  For many people, the decision will seem personal, perhaps very internal.  It might involve something as simple as starting an exercise program or attending a yoga class.  But, again, it will be a profound turning point for some.

The Diamond of Thanksgiving Day 2014

Thanksgiving Day of 2014 is marked by a diamond pattern that lasts most of the day.  Here is the simplified chart:

Diamond of 2014-11-27 Thanksgiving Day

[Click to Enlarge]

We think this is a mostly benevolent pattern.  With Hygeia prominent and retrograde, health and healthcare issues will be at center stage.  This Thanksgiving many will be thinking about avoiding overeating and the perils to health that can bring.  Ceres and Venus (12 and 13 Sagittarius, respectively) will also emphasize this same theme.  The involvement of the nodes here tell us that some people will overdo it, and this may prompt a “wakeup call” for some.

Here is the same chart, but with an aspect grid and legends (Solar Fire “Beginners” chart):

Diamond of 2014-11-27 Thanksgiving Day (Beginners)

[Click to Enlarge]

A number of other interesting aspects are in play.  Venus (Sadge) is still square Chiron (Pisces) emphasizing healing issues further.  These may be emotional and familial rather than physical.  Sun has recently (the day before) completed a square to Neptune, which also emphasizes healing and mercy in the high form but can involve deception or drugs / alcohol in the low form.  Astraea is near a sign change (moving from Pisces to Aries) suggesting that some overdue justice may emerge in the days following Thanksgiving.

Here is the video of the pattern:

Here are some other commentaries on Thanksgiving, 2014:

Early 2013 Diamonds

The first quarter of 2013 contains two diamonds.  One starts on January 29th, a few days after the Stretched Pentagram near the Full Moon (and after the State of the Union speech).  The other occurs a few days after the Vernal Equinox (starting on March 24th).  (Both last overnight.)

Here is the chart for the first one, on January 29th:

Diamond 1 Jan 29th 1-3-2013 9-11-22 PM

And here is the March 24th Diamond (a few days after the Vernal Equinox):

Diamond 2 March 24th 1-3-2013 9-13-22 PM

Diamonds are comparatively rare.  We think the March 24th Diamond is particularly interesting since the Moon opposes Mercury, and Mercury is at the midpoint of Chiron / Neptune.
