Full Moon February 2017 (Lunar Eclipse: Leo Moon + Aquarius Sun)

Headline: In addition to being a Full Moon and Eclipse with a comet (!), this FM has a complex set of patterns, some relatively rare, that bring important opportunities that can be realized if you make the right decisions and form the right alliances.  Additionally, a thief is lurking (might be a time waster or maybe an ACTUAL thief), so be careful!

A few months have past since our last “real” astrology post (other than something I started on Lost Dudeist involving an old cold case murder), and we are overdue to put some of our own work up.  This FM is interesting, with the Moon near the important fixed star of Regulus (i.e. the “Regulator” and associated with kings and royalty and sometimes downfalls) as well as a number of patterns.  We will focus mainly on the charts, as we have done the past few years, with only minimal commentary (encouraging our readers, instead, to comment).  Names for this moon abound.  “Snow Moon” is most popular, but we like “Werewolf Moon” best!  🙂

Basic Chart, Inner Planets, and Outer Planets

First, we have a basic chart of the FM using tight orbs (eliminating all but the strongest aspects) and a new custom layout that we designed today:

lunareclipse-2017-02-10-11th-tightorbs

The aspect grid and mid-point trees here focus specifically on the strongest and most influential aspects.  Others have analyzed this FM extensively, and I really have little new to offer except my (usual) analysis of patterns and some discussion of mid-points as well as various items that catch my eye (though they have been mentioned by others).

In addition to the proximity of the Moon to Regulus (bringing up issues of power and control as well as risk of loss related to “revenge”), we note that the moon is apply to an (out of sign) conjunction to the North Node in Virgo.  This is important for any of several reasons (such as the Nodes being the critical ingredient in all eclipses) but we note that when that aspect perfects (Moon conjunct North Node in Virgo) a bit later that a powerful earth trine will be activated (making it possible to turn opportunities seized with the FM into money or material goods or benefits).

We present next the same chart (all of these are the same), but in a different format and filtered for inner planets (and Mars).  This version of the chart (and these aspects) speak to individual issues more than collective issues and, depending on our individual natal charts (or maybe those close to us) how this FM will affect us in a very direct way:

lunareclipse-2017-02-10-inners

If you are paying attention (we hope you are if you are reading this), then you will note two things.  The first, and most compelling, is that Mars forms a triangular relationship (similar to a T-Square, but (as far as I know) an as yet unnamed pattern) with Moon / Sun in opposition (that DEFINES a Full Moon!) and Mars forming a sesquiquadrate (135 degrees) to Moon and a semi-square (45 degrees) to the Sun.  Both aspects tend to be “irritating,” Mars is all about action (often physical) and can be prone to violence, and this set of aspects will spur you to “get things done” *IF* you can avoid becoming mired in conflicts.

The second aspect is more subtle, with Mercury sextile Venus.  Really, the aspect is not the issue.  The issue is that Mercury is “peregrine” (an horary term, and one of the few of those we use from time to time), and that makes Mercury a “thief” in this chart.  Incessant chatter and nuisance events related to transportation and communication can steal your opportunity from you.  Do not let that happen!

Here is the same chart, but filtered for the outers including Chiron, Major Asteroids (Pallas, Ceres, Vesta, and Juno), the additional two we always use (Hygeia, healthcare, and Astraea, law) along with the additions of Sedna, Selena, and Eris.  We also have the calculated point Black Moon (Lilith).

lunareclipse-2017-02-10-outers

The outers tend to affect us collectively, and as individuals we look to them to see how we “fit in” with the larger groups around us as well as what the larger collective is “working through.”  The larger T-Square (Uranus (and Eris, the troublemaker), Vesta, and Jupiter) is part of a looser Grand Cross (adding in Pluto in Capricorn).  The Uranus / Pluto squares since 2012 (arguably 2011) have been discussed extensively in their role in the financial meltdown of 2008 (the year Pluto (death and major transformation) entered Capricorn (banking and finance and large corporations)) through the “Arab Spring” and other Middle Eastern wars and violence up to, and including, the current events in the Middle East as well as the political climate here in the United States.

T-Square / Grand Cross

Beyond this summary, we will not duplicate those discussion except to note that Jupiter (Libra) ALWAYS acts as an “amplifier” of anything he touches, and Vesta brings in issues of traditions (and loyalty, probably especially military traditions if we followed our hunch on this).  Grand crosses bring SOME things to a HALT and launch other things into rapid motion.  This is another “irritating” pattern (similar to the Sun / Moon / Mars pattern previously discussed), but it is huge and affects many people and will extend particularly long after the eclipse (at least 18 months if we were to guess but maybe further).  Expect the fights we have been having to escalate, particularly if they involve traditions (and anyone who “serves,” i.e. military, police, nurses, and similar).

Huber Learning Triangle

We add that in addition to the T-Square / Grand Cross, a “Huber Learning Triangle” is present that includes Vesta (traditions and service), Chiron (education, healthcare, and mentors) and Jupiter (law, higher education, sometimes health, and foreign travel / ambassadors; higher thought and sometime philanderers).  Composed of a trine (easy and straightforward), a quincunx (a confusing and messy misunderstanding) and a square (an avoidable and irritating demand for action), this outer planet / asteroid Huber affects all of us and says that everyone (liberal, conservative, democrat, republican, libertarian, and “other”) is partially right (the trine), partially out of touch with reality (the quincunx) and feeling compelled to “do something about it” (the square).  This kind of pattern may also apply in other areas of your life.

Resolutions require that the misunderstandings be addressed if they can be.  (We think this involves people who serve (military & police & firefighters & nurses & similar), their education & healthcare benefits, and a real need for resolution (maybe legal and maybe in some other Jupiter area).

Please do note that both of these major patterns are interlaced and contain Jupiter / Vesta on one of their legs.  (Making “people who serve” and the legal system almost a certainty.)

With that, we examine the  patterns in play, which are powerful and interesting (and some tend to be rare).  Since they are numerous, we will list them first (in order of consideration):

  • Mystic Rectangle
  • Kites (Kite Key) and associated Grand Trines
  • Heles (Hele Key)
  • Rosetta
  • Yods

Mystic Rectangle, Kites, and Grand Trines

These three sets of patterns should be considered together Kites are considered rare, and Mystic Rectangles even more so.  Sometimes I see a fifth point in the Mystic Rectangle pattern which creates an interlaced pair of kites that I call a “Kite Key” (taking the name from “Double Yod Key” and similar patterns).  The Mystic Rectangle shows up in interesting places and people.  For example, Hillary Clinton’s natal chart has one and it is rather pronounced.  Kites always contain at least one Grand Trine, and several are present here (particularly a Fire Grand Trine composed of Uranus (Aries), Moon (Leo), and Saturn (Sagittarius)).  As we mentioned earlier, after the Moon moves into Virgo it will form (amplify, really) an Earth Grand Trine when it perfects the conjunction to the North Node.

Here is the same chart, but filtered for the Mystic Rectangle:

lunareclipse-2017-02-10-mysticrectangle

Moon, Jupiter, Uranus, and the Sun form this MR, and this is a “lotto ticket winner” pattern.  You may not win the “actual” lotto, but a huge opportunity is facing you (if you can avoid Mercury the thief, mentioned earlier).  (Do keep in mind that, with some people, Mercury might be an ACTUAL thief.  I have actually seen that happen when I saw a cash box stolen from a charity dance by a “snatch and grab” thief when Moon in Gemini (Mercury’s home) became angular.  As a young budding astrologer, this was an AMAZING event to witness!  The money was never recovered….)  An opportunity faces you, no doubt, but do act with SOME prudence!

Kites

The kite key (interlaced kites) formed from the MR confirm this:

lunareclipse-2017-02-10-kitekey

We will note that the three bodies of Hygeia (health and healthcare), Saturn (aging, bones, test, trials, and tribulations) and Astraea (law, lawyers, judges, and the legal system) form the apex (“additional planet”) in this kite key.  So, your opportunity may involve either health / healthcare or aging or bones or the law / legal system in some way.  (All three could be involved, as in an elderly person who is injured by some Mercurial peregrine young person and from the damage to their health a lawsuit and maybe criminal action results.  Bad news for the person who cause the harm in their fit of Sun / Moon / Mars temper.  Do not be the person with the temper!  You are smart enough to read this, so you should know better!)

Grand Trines

Here is the same chart, but filtered to reveal the Grand Trines:

lunareclipse-2017-02-10-grandtrines

To some degree, these patterns of opportunity are about personal decisions that may or may not directly involve others.

Hele (Key), Rosetta, and Yods: Issues of Allegiance and Decisions

In contrast to the previous group of patterns, the Hele / Rosetta / Yod group in this eclipse necessarily involve others (except MAYBE the Yods).  We also have interlaced Hele patterns (two) which we call a “Hele Key” and these emphasize the importance of forming stable long term alliances.  The Rosetta, on the other hand, is about short term alliances and can lead later to treachery and betrayal.  “Picking the right friends” is everything at this moment, and the pair of Yods (not quite a “double yod key” but VERY similar to that pattern) are about (a minimum of) two decisions involving alliances, friends, non-friends (enemies?), decisions, and what action to take (or avoid).

Hele Key

We present, first, the same Eclipse chart, filtered for the Hele pattern (and revealing the Hele key):

lunareclipse-2017-02-10-helekey

The “common leg” in these two interlaced Hele patterns (aka the “Hele Key”) is a Vesta / Chiron trine.  A stable relationship between Vesta in Cancer (traditions and service in the water sign associated with families and children and oceans and family outings at the beach) and Chiron (mentors, education, healthcare, and attempting to heal the deep wound that never seems to quite heal fully).  This might be a good weekend to NOT take your children (Cancerian) to any place where they could drown (a Chironic wound that could never be healed).  For others, the issues are about, on one hand, service and family, and, on the other hand, dealing with painful issues that may never resolved.  If you are lucky, this could be a healthcare issue that can be resolved (for now) or an education issue (that can be completed and finished).  In any case, it is really all about your alliances and the friends you pick.

If we had to make a recommendation (and that is risky!), we would recommend males tend to opt for “college professor” (or lawyer) type friends (or maybe military) and females opt for someone Saturnine (could be an older adult or some other “authority figure”).

Rosetta

Every garden must have a snake, no doubt.  In this garden, or chart, the Rosetta is the set of relationships that might can “get things done” rather quickly, but which may turn on you in some form of treachery at some later point.

Here is the chart:

lunareclipse-2017-02-10-rosetta

Curiously, the same Vesta / Chiron trine forms the backbone of this Rosetta.

Yods: Decisions

This chart contains a pair of Yods, and in astrology a pair almost always means “two or more.”  You can also think of it as “at least two” major decisions.  Here is the chart:

lunareclipse-2017-02-10-yods

One decision involves “fate” (North Node) or “hard work” (OR BOTH) and a choice between Venus (love, beauty, harmony, and maybe money & finances; also: this looks like Venus AND Mars!) and Mercury (communications, transportation, and the aforementioned thief).  Each has their advantage, and as an astrologer it is my duty to tell you that each path has its advantages and disadvantages, but we lean toward the Venus path over the Mercury path in this case.  (Why?  Because Mercury is peregrine, or a thief, here.  If you are a criminal, then maybe that is your path, but not for the rest of us.)

The other decision involves a Chironic issue (education, healthcare, or mentor(s)) and a choice between a very strong Leo Moon (likely a strong female) and Libran (but Retrograde) Jupiter.  That is a tougher choice, but we ever so slightly favor the Leo Moon.  (Why?  It is VERY strong in this eclipse, AND Jupiter is retrograde).  In the end, only you can decide.

Our most popular reblogs for this FM (so far):

Taking a peek at what the search engines (currently) like, we have these pages also:

This last one mentions “the Cold Moon, Ice Moon, and Quickening Moon,” but we still like the “Werewolf Moon” the best!

That is it for our forecast, but we are going to include some maps this time.  (We have not done that since 2015.)  No commentary for the maps; you are own your own in your analysis of them using what we have given you from the charts.  Also, for those interested in “Cosmobiology” and midpoint analysis, we are including midpoint trees and modulus sort strips.

2016-09-16 Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon; Rosetta + T-Squares)

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:

2016-09-16-lunar-eclipse-full-moon-t-squares

[Click Image to Enlarge]

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:

2016-09-16-lunar-eclipse-full-moon-rosetta

[Click Image to Enlarge]

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.

Here are the Virgo Sun / Pisces Moon Full Moons from 1950 to 2050:

Solar Eclipse of September 1st 2016

This particular eclipse is personal for reasons I do not wish to disclose on the open internet.  I thought about NOT writing about it and just leaving the 2016 New Moons page and the writings of others (reblogs) as my proxy.

But, I changed my mind.  And then I found a body of work I had produced on this eclipse a few weeks ago.  No written work, mind you, but chart graphics from the time when I developed my analysis of the rather important Grand Quintile of August 28th.  That confirmed for me that I needed to put up what I had done in a post.

This Grand Quintile period we are in, from August 28th until September 11th, is particularly rare.  If you check the Grand Quintiles from 1800 to 2050 page, you will find most of them last a few hours or a day.  Exceptions exist, such as in 1809 and 1810, but they are just that: exceptions.  So is this current window.

This Solar Eclipse, a special type of New Moon, is a punctuation mark in this window.  It also corresponds to an Eclipse in September of 1997, which was an extremely important period for me personally.  I am left wondering what this one will bring me.

First, let us take a peek at the Kite pattern that  is present.  Kites are not extremely rare, but they are not particularly common either.  This one has the Eclipse, itself, at the focal point and Neptune in opposition (and Neptune is part of the Grand Trine that forms the body of the kite).  (Kites are always, inherently, built from Grand Trines, the pattern that is the namesake of this blog (and my internet alter ego).)  Some of us, likely many of us, are facing one of the most important opportunities of our lives.  We are at one of the most important junctures in our individual and collective lives.  The decisions, and followup actions, that we make (or not) are critically important to the results that manifest (or fail to manifest) consequently.  Negligence is a profound danger here.

Here is the chart of the Eclipse, filtered for that Kite pattern:

Juno and Vesta (both major asteroids) form the other points of the Grand Trine.  Juno brings issues of trust and intimacy to the forefront, particularly as they involve wives, sisters, mothers, and other female family members.  Vesta is about traditions and whether or not we follow and honor them or create new ones when old ones no longer serve us.

Here is the same chart, filtered for the Grand Trine instead of the Kite:

Solar Eclipse 2016-09-01 Grand Trines (NM, Mercury Rx)

We note that the opposition of the Eclipse to Neptune has not yet quite perfected, but will perfect soon with the annual opposition of Sun to Neptune on Friday.  Friday’s opposition has a Thor’s Hammer (energy, often in the form of violence or explosions) and a Yod (insisting that an important decision must be made).  You will have to make a decision in this period, and something or someone from the past (Mercury Retrograde) will be part of that decision.

This Eclipse also has a Thor’s Hammer (aka God’s Fist) present with all the “energy” (and DANGER!) that brings.  (Do be careful!)

We also note the presence of a Rosetta; we interpret that pattern as indicative of the important of short-term alliances and relationships.  Treachery is a very real possibility, and people (including major politicians) are likely to shift their positions and allegiances at this time.

T-Squares are present and amplify the energy (and danger) of the Thor’s Hammer:

Solar Eclipse 2016-09-01 T-Squares (NM, Mercury Rx)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This next point is particularly important: please note there are TWO independent sets of T-Squares.  This makes “handling” the sources of “irritation” difficult and more likely impossible.  We would not be surprised at all to hear about someone or something “blowing up” (or a mass shooting) in the next few days.  Since the Eclipse really consumes nearly the entirety of the African continent, we would not be surprised to see the event there.

Here are the Seventh Harmonic or “karmic” aspects:

Solar Eclipse 2016-09-01 7th Harmonic (NM, Mercury Rx)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note the presence of a triangular pattern of septiles composed of a septile, biseptile, and triseptile.  Chiron, Saturn, and Astraea are involved.  We would not be surprised to learn of a major lawsuit (or similar legal system involvement) involving either educational or healthcare systems (or both).  Frankly, we think there will be “hell to pay.”

We will stop there, but we cannot emphasize strongly enough just how important this window of opportunity is.  After September 11th, most of it closes.  All will be gone by Mercury Direct Station and the Autumnal Equinox.  By then, “the concrete will have set.”

Some useful links:

Only a handful of New Moons have a Grand Quintile during the period from 1800 to 2050 (and Solar Fire did not count this NM as one of them though we argue that it is):

Collective Astrology

libra-zodiac-symbol-daniel-eskridge-728x400It takes a lot of drive but also an infinite amount of kindness to support ourselves through the moments of challenges, confusion and distress in our lives. For many, the last weeks have brought an unusual level of emotional intensity. In the same way that in a blizzard one cannot see far ahead, during the last weeks it could have been harder to see objectively what was going on. We can feel that something is emerging but we don’t know yet what it is or where it is leading us.

The time of Aries is associated with new beginning and renewed hope after the long sleep of winter. The Sun is calling us to put ourselves out there like sprouts willfully bursting through the comfort of the earth into the open. It invites us to meet life head on but with grace, peace and harmony.   The Sun in…

Melanie's Astro~News

How has the journey with the massive, oceanic, CHIRONIC Total Solar Eclipse in PISCES been for you???

We’re still in it’s wave, of course, since Eclipse effects extent over 1 – 2 months (depending on intensity and one’s own activation). Plus, there is still a lot of planetary energy in PISCES, gradually moving over to ARIES – Spring in Becoming.
So let’s take it easy with the washing out of old vibrations – maybe even residues of the whole PISCES Age era, and our own or ‘inherited’ loyalty to / conditioning by it.

How have you been ‘entangled’ in (unevolved) PISCEAN paradigms (co-dependency of victim – perpetrator / persecutor – saviour; martyrdom; various addictions)?

The Total Solar Eclipse brought consciousness to it, and it shows us it’s time to release those bonds in ‘the old kingdom’. Catalysts may have shown up, to support the process, and helping…

Lunar Eclipse in Libra for March 23rd 2016

Honestly I don’t feel like I know what this stuff means most the time. Maybe I’ll capture little glimmers of truth nuggets that resonate to the current astrological atmosphere, but symbols are archetypal which means they possess infinite potential meanings, as long as those meanings resonate with the energy of that symbol. So I’m going to attempt to free my critic for a little while and see what I can access by playing around with the energies activated for this Lunar Eclipse.

The moon is in Libra being eclipsed by Sun in Aries, which means the normal way of viewing others is temporarily eclipsed to show our true face as only one self. Everyone around us as merely mirrors to reflect back who we really are as One-Self. To play out itself through infinite characters in order to know our-self better…
