Jupiter Square Saturn 2016-03-23

We are discussing Jupiter Square Saturn, but we first need to point out that this is a LONG TERM ASPECT.  If you are in the habit of checking the newspaper or website for your “forecast today,” a fortune cookie of sorts, then you likely will NOT understand this.  This REQUIRES a long-term point of view.

We also recommend that you read and compare our analysis of Jupiter Square Saturn in August of 2015.  (This is part of a related sequence.)

Notice that this aspect (Jupiter Square Saturn) has been in play since February 14th (Valentine’s Day, and a rather amazing day astrologically though we were unavailable to develop an analysis for that particular day.), will perfect again May 26th without losing any influence, and move out of influence June 26th (also the date of the perfection of the third of three Jupiter Trine Pluto aspects).  It will come into influence again shortly before the election and continue past the United States Presidential Inauguration in 2017.

Jupiter / Saturn angular aspects (conjunction, squares, and opposition) are notorious for financial market shakeups.  These almost never happen “day of” perfection but in some nearby window (likely precipitated by a lunar or inner planet aspect).  If you check on when financial crashes have happened in the United States, they have historically happened in May, August, and October (particularly in or near the Via Combusta).  (See, also: here and here.   If you click this last link, please note that Clarissa is one of our favorite astrologers, and we frequently repost her work because it is of such high quality.)

This particular Jupiter / Saturn square perfects a few hours before a lunar eclipse.  We present the chart first filtered for squares present at the perfection:

A few of you may look at that chart and be suspicious that something else is present.  You are right!  (Fixed signs are absent, but that is not our main point.  However, without them, we have trouble completing something start to finish.  What has to happen today, instead, is (1) to close out the old tasks and projects and (2) start the new tasks and projects.  That is consistent with an eclipse.)

Back to our regularly scheduled program: A T-Square is present, and it trumps a more ordinary look at this as being merely a collection of squares:

2016-03-23 Jupiter Square Saturn (T-Square)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This is no ordinary T-Square.  While Venus perfects it (and is more transitory), if you are willing to loosen your orbs a bit we can consider Neptune to be conjunct Venus (recently perfecting a few days ago) and part of the T-Square.  Neptune is at home in Pisces, Venus is in exaltation, and both are different faces of each other.  They are powerful, far more powerful than either Jupiter (in Detriment) or Saturn (not well placed in Sagittarius).  So, in at least this case, we really need to look at Venus / Neptune to get a “real” idea of what is going on here.

As I hinted earlier, I believe the “real” idea is a hint of a major financial shift later this year.  Venus rules finances (and financial markets), and Neptune stresses impermanence.  If such as change does happen, my guess (again) is in May, August, or October.

Other lessons (patterns) are present with this particular chart.  First, we will learn lessons during this period of time.  A Square Key (really interlaced Huber Learning Triangles) is present.  We show the same chart, filtered for that pattern:

2016-03-23 Jupiter Square Saturn (Square Key)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We can be certain we will learn lessons from the choice we make today.  And a big choice faces us.  We know this because a Yod (the Finger of God and a pattern than indicates important choices of one path or the other but never both).  We show this same chart filtered for the Yod:

2016-03-23 Jupiter Square Saturn (Yod)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We will have to choose our friends carefully today because they will become long-term allies and anchor us to a particular position.  A Hele confirms that this is a day where this will happen:

2016-03-23 Jupiter Square Saturn (Hele)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Finally, an opportunity can be had today.  This is not the “strong” opportunity of a kite, but it obtains a certain amount of strength because (1) this is perfection of a long-term aspect and (2) a lunar eclipse (full moon) occurs later today.  So, you will have an opportunity if you (1) wrap up and close out old tasks and (2) choose wisely in your alliances and the new projects that you begin.  Here is the same chart, filtered for the Grand Trine:

2016-03-23 Jupiter Square Saturn (Grand Trine)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Let us be clear: this is a long term aspect though the eclipse makes today in particular important.  Because this is a long-term aspect, at a minimum, last week and this week are particularly important in the period from February 14th to June 26th as well as the long term effects from the decisions and events that occur during this period.

Mercury Direct Station 2015-10-09

The Mercury Retrograde period that began Thursday, September 17, 2015 will end October 9, 2015.  It is marked by two notable patterns (1) a Yod involving Neptune, Juno, and Astraea and (2) a higher order 7th Harmonic triangular pattern (arguably a 7th Harmonic “Learning Triangle”) involving Pluto, Astraea, and the North Node.  We show the first version of the chart, filtered for the Yod:

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Here is the same chart, filtered for the 7th Harmonic “Learning Triangle”:

2015-10-09 Mercury Direct Station (7th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that both of these patterns have Astraea (law, legal, and justice) involved in both of them.  While a number of interpretations are possisble (and often appropriate to individual situations), we believe that we might see an important divorce initiated at this time.  Astraea represents the various members of the legal system, Juno an aggrieved wife (or possibly other family member), and Neptune a husband who has a problem with drugs / alcohol or other addictive behaviors.  The North Node tells us that much work will be needed.  This will note be an easy process for those involved.

Here is the U.S. Map.  We note that most activations are in the eastern half of the United States (the most densely populated portion) and particularly along the region commonly identified as the “East Coast.”

Mercury Square Neptune and Mars Quincunx Saturn 2015-06-23

The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly.  That should be the title for today.

The Good: if you are a poet or photographer or in some similar field, today may present some of your greatest inspirations.  Gentle Creatives are favored today.

The Bad: if you are a police officer, drunk, or drug addict, your misconduct today will not be tolerated.  “Just doing my job” and similar excuses just will not work anymore.  No choke holds that kill mentally ill homeless guys, no shooting of 12 year olds who have toy guns, none of that will play any more.  Just don’t do it!

The Ugly: some people will ignore the previous warning, and they will learn very hard lessons.  If you are a drunk or drug addict, stay home.  Don’t drive.  Don’t go out.  Don’t get in bar fights.  STAY HOME!  And if the police bust down your door anyway, do not give them ANY excuse to mistreat you.  If you are law enforcement, well, we already warned you ONCE!  Weren’t you listening?  (If not, then you will get what you deserve!)  To everyone: BE NICE!

If you are an alcoholic / drug addicted police officer, then your dirty little secret may be about to become public knowledge.  (This includes steroid abuse.)  It is an especially bad day for you.

Anyone with a camera tends to be favored today.  (But, still, be careful!)

The poetry, alcohol, drug, photography, video, art, whatever thing flows from yet another Mercury Square Neptune, the third of a series tied to the recent Mercury Retrograde that completed.  And Mars Quincunx Saturn occurs less than a half hour later, making a mess of anything involving violence and authority.  (Military and intelligence agencies will also likely be affected.)

We are basing the following analysis on the Mercury Square Neptune (exact) chart.

The Yod (“Finger of God”) in play yesterday is still in full force today.  WE HAVE A CHOICE in how we act today!

Here is the chart:

2015-06-23 Mercury Square Neptune Yod

For those not willing to listen to what the universe is telling us, some HARD lessons are coming.  The multiple Huber “Learning” Trinagles tell us this:

HLT 1’s:

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Note that the above version of the chart has TWO HLT 1’s.  Here are the HLT 2’s:

2015-06-23 Mercury Square Neptune Huber 2

[Click Image to Enlarge]

With this many Huber Learning Triangles in play, the message is clear: some people will be learning “lessons” today.  (It does not have to be YOU!)

Let us note that a sliver of an opportunity may present itself (mostly favoring fire signs and maybe air signs) with a so-called “almost” kite:

2015-06-23 Mercury Square Neptune Kite Almost (2)

Fleeting and unstable alliances may present themselves, as indicated by a Rosetta.  (Just know that these “fair weather friends” will not stick with you for long.)

Write poetry, take pictures, and be nice!

The Double Yod Key of March 30th

March 21, 2010 at 12:44 pm | Posted in Astrology, BadDays, Predictions | 1 Comment

Why you need to really watch your mouth on March 30th.

What you say on Tuesday March 30th could have pretty serious consequences. And, if you are at all prone to “road rage,” then you better take a taxi, bus, or train.

Tuesday March 30th will have a series of “Double Yod Keys” that include a square of Mars and Mercury. By itself, a Mars and Mercury square can cause trouble. But with the Double Yod Key (DYK), mouth in motion before brain in gear can have lasting consequences.

Double Yod Keys, as a pattern, have only recently been recognized and discussed.  “Yods” are called “Fingers of God” and mark points where major decisions often must be made.  These kinds of decisions tend to persist. And, the failure to decide is (usually) the worst of all.  The parable of “Lot’s Wife” applies here: pick one and never look back.  With a Double Yod Key, two major decisions must be made. Actually, a third decision is made as well: of these two key issues, which is more important. (Be careful before you ask “who is it going to be, me or the dog?”)

A DYK always contains a square, and this one has Mercury (Communications) in Square (Conflict) with Mars (War and Fights).  Said differently, for many people this will be a dangerous time when they say or do things they regret.  In rush hour, this could be a particularly bad road rage incident.

Like any other energy, this can be harnessed productively.  But, the tendencies here are misunderstandings that explode into events with unintended consequences.  Chart + list of other DYK’s (Only the March 30th ones have the Mercury / Mars square) follows, with the March 30th periods in BOLD.

The East Coast of the US (particularly DC to Philly) picks up the Saturn energy here, but the rest of the US, UK, and most of Europe is generally unaffected.  (Of course, certain individuals will be highly affected.)

Globally, the main cities affected are Tokyo, Beijing, Hanoi, Darwin, and Central Australia (especially near Adelaide). I believe Delhi may feel some impact from this as well, and, if any major event occurs, India has the potential to provide leadership in healing afterwards. Here are the maps followed by upcoming periods of Double Yod Keys followed by analysis of two more patterns.

Quintile Kites

These are key periods for learning concepts and creative problem solving.  If you can set time aside to work upon your chosen problem (possibly the one you decided to solve with the advent and culmination of the recent equinox), this is a good time to brainstorm.  Save your action, if possible, for the Focused Yods (next).  Usable opportunities for CDT are in BOLD.

Focused Yods

Based on the ideas and plans formulated in the Quintile Kites, you can take action on them now during the Focused Yods.  A period of “Focused Yods” will being March 26th and continue through the end of the month.  Here is a list of the very short periods where an intense focused effort can cut through the noise to get something done (usable opportunities for CDT are in BOLD):

March 13th Yod and Midpoints: Which Man Should She Pick?

March 13, 2010 at 1:47 pm | Posted in Astrology, ExampleCharts, Predictions, Weekends | Comments Off on March 13th Yod and Midpoints: Which Man Should She Pick?
Tags: , , , , , , ,

I used the “Wheel and Data” page from Solar Fire to produce this chart.

Although astrology charts address a number of issues, I am only going to address one particular issue here: certain women, tonight, will have to choose between one of two men.

One man is young, handsome, and dashing.  Well, I am not sure about handsome, and he might not be all that young.  But, for many the chances are good that he is an athlete, a police officer, or a member of the military.  He is the kind of guy who will defend your honor, and he will punch someone in the face to do it.

He could be a sure bet, but he does have some downsides.  He has a temper and might be violent.  Sometimes he rushes in where others fear to tread.  Based on his temper, he might hurt you.  To be sure, he will say he is sorry afterwards, and he will charm you.  But, this could easily become a very destructive pattern.

The other man is probably older.  He could be an authority figure, but probably not a police officer.  He would be more like an attorney or perhaps a judge.  He could be in the military, but he would be a seasoned leader, perhaps of the platoon.  He could easily be a banker or business owner.  He is stable, and he probably has money while everyone else does not during this recession.

But he has his dark side as well.  He may be developing problems: dental problems or baldness or other aspects of aging.  You will always be in competition with his career or his business, and sometimes the business will win.  You will feel like a neglected “business widow” or a “Trophy Wife” who must be perfect and greet the public to assure his position.  He probably will not hit you, but sometimes he can seem mean.  If you are a spender, then this is not the guy for you because he will be a penny pincher at heart.  Violate the family budget and it could mean real trouble.

If some of you (I am assuming the female readers and not the guys) are wondering if you will be satisfied with either one, let me assure you that you will not.  No matter how WELL things work out, you will always WONDER what would have happened if you picked the other guy.

If you pick the attorney / judge / corporate guru / Bill Gates (just kidding, Bill, we all know that you are, in fact, stunningly generous), then in your moments of boredom you will wonder what would have happened if you had picked “the exciting guy.”  And, if you pick the exciting guy, you will wonder “why is this happening again” as he gets in yet another fight, this time with the guy turning off the cable because the bill was not paid.  No matter which one you pick, you will always wonder.  YOUR KARMA (Ladies) will be to COMPLETELY let go of the other “path” (guy).  Failure to do so will bring you the worst possible result.

How bad can it get?  You’ll feel like a character in this Eric Roberts movie.

This brings up another topic.  Some of you ladies are cheating on your husband.  He is the “Saturn Character” (older, possibly balding or dental, maybe a manager or business man).  Well, this chart has maps (for beginners) to decode planets, signs, and aspects.  If you use the maps to decode the “Midpoints” section, you’ll find the following:  (1) The Moon is in a relationship with the midpoint of Mars and Saturn (and, specifically, each of those is quincunx, forming a “yod” or a DECISION THAT MUST BE MADE); AND (2) Uranus (accidents, surprises, and unexpected events) is in a relationship with Venus (women) and Jupiter (the big amplifier that makes everything BIG).

This latter aspect Uranus conjunct midpoint of Venus and Jupiter has several meanings.  Some people will win BIG tonight.  But, all three are in the sign of Pisces (revelations, self-undoing, and sometimes hidden enemies (that gossipy next door neighbor)).  So, if you are cheating on hubby, chances are good that will be revealed tonight.  AND, tonight he might have the energy to tell you to get out (if he is Saturn) or leave after he either beats you (Mars) or arrests you (also Mars).

Tonight can be very, very bad news for women who are cheats.  (Remember the Eric Roberts movie mentioned above?  It is based on a true story, and that woman went to prison, convicted of murder.)  Remember, also, this is a VERY old moon preceding a new moon (and that is about ENDINGS).

Guys: I am leaving it up to you to discern who you are in this drama.  Just realize that you may not be who you think you are.  The police chief could be Saturn, and the business man might be Mars after all.

(I am adding an annotated version, below, of the above chart to help the casual reader identify Moon, Mars, Saturn, and their relationships in this particular Yod.  I leave it as an exercise (Google helps) to identify Venus, Uranus, and Jupiter in their relationships.  A search like this might help.)

Weekend of January 30th Dominated by Mercury Direct Station

January 30, 2009 at 12:57 pm | Posted in Astrology, Predictions, Retrogrades, Weekends | 5 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

What eclipses this weekend (sorry), is the Mercury Direct station. This this station follows so closely after the eclipse is even more of a sign of changes to come.

For many of us, personally, this presents another major turning point in the diet issue. Will we feast or will we famine? If you are fighting this issue, this weekend is an important milestone. You will especially find Saturday frustrating, as your plans to stay on track are upset by Mercury changing directions. As I have written before, keep in mind that if you fall down you can get back up.

But even if you are not fighting the diet fight, you will feel the shift in other ways.

Friday morning starts slowly, but the day becomes more “lively” with a possible power struggle or financial issue in the afternoon.

Friday has a quiet Piscean period which includes a void from about 3am Dallas time (6am UK) until the Moon enters Aries after 9am. Aries Moons tend to bring about activity. And this Moon squares Pluto early, as early Aries Moons will do for the next few years.

Plutonic activity often signifies concerns over taxes. (It is that time of year again, isn’t it?) This can be a sign of other disputes, or perhaps intense sexual activity. By itself, it is not a major aspect, but following so closely after an eclipse it can signify that you will see a major turning point in your life this afternoon. Keep your eyes open.

The day ends pleasantly enough with an aspect to Jupiter.

Saturday is the peak day in the diet battle, and Saturday also brings to fore issues with with “will” and the intensity needed to get things done. This is embodied in a “finger of God” that has Ceres (food) and Saturn (structure, willpower) at the focal point, and the Moon in Aries at one fork and five planets in Aquarius at the other fork.

The five planets in Aquarius speaks to use tending to decide to do “what the group wants to do.” If you have a support group, this is a good time to attend activities. Go to OA if you attend that, or an extra Weight Watchers if you attend that.

For many of us, we see a drama that includes three different groups: (1) a group of people, possibly five or more, who advocate THEIR viewpoint; (2) an authority figure and possibly a “young lady” (who could be engaged to marry); and (3) a lone, but exteremly strong, female. When we think of this “lone female” think of Diana the Warrior.

I cannot say who will win this battle of wills, but I can say that the drama will be a lively one. Enjoy!

December 14, 2008 Finger of God Points Out Weak Points

December 13, 2008 at 11:14 am | Posted in Astrology, Predictions, Weekends | Comments Off on December 14, 2008 Finger of God Points Out Weak Points
Tags: , , , , , , ,

Saturday December 13th the Moon shifted into Cancer, its home, the Full Moon energy terminated with the shift into a new sign, and one of Jim Shawvan’s Opportunity Periods began. This one continues until about 5:30 pm, EST, on the 14th.

A number of things happen today, but the big one is the Finger of God in the “clumsy” signs. I’m not sure which astrologer wrote it, but years ago I read that Cancer, Sadge, and Aquarius are the “clumsy” signs. People with planets in these signs, especially in several of them, are supposedly prone to gafs.

That said, in this specific group of signs, a Finger of God forms today, with Moon (in Cancer) inconjunct Sun (in Sagittarius) and Neptune (in Aquarius). The lunar opposition to Jupiter joins into this group to create what I call a “peace sign in the sky.”

My interpretation is that this grouping will lead all of us to explore points of weakness, points where we stumble, and find answers in spirituality. (The two spirituality planets are Jupiter & Neptune; both are involved here.)

So, do note that some excellent shopping opportunities continue, but be aware that you might somehow stumble today. That isn’t bad, because you have the opportunity to (probably safely) learn an important lesson.

Regardless, get done what you can.  Monday isn’t a very forgiving day.

November 18, 2008 A Fork in the Road

November 18, 2008 at 6:21 am | Posted in Astrology, Predictions | Comments Off on November 18, 2008 A Fork in the Road
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Today is all about a “fork in the road.” A Yod, or “finger of God,” exists with the Moon in Leo and the forks shown by Uranus in Pisces and Jupiter & Venus in Capricorn. Leo is about leadership. This day affects leaders more than others, but it also brings out the natural leadership in all of us.

The fork between Pisces and Capricorn will force us to choose between the idalistic and the practical. Uranus (aka Prometheus) is in Pisces and brings us innovations in areas of art, music, poetry, and similar areas. Capricorn is about practicality. Venus is about love & beauty, but Venus is also about finances and building the practical. Venus can be especially about farms. Jupiter is about growth and expansion, in this case in things Capricorn such as large corporations and corporate leadership.

The choice will be between idealistic innovation and practical focused growth. No matter which choice we make we can benefit, but either choice will, at some point, leave us wondering what might have happened had we considered the other path. Inconjuncts, from which yods are built, are characterized by dissatisfaction.

Water Signs: Pisces, Cancer & Scorpio will tend to choose the innovative today.  Some Cancerians, particularly those who have birthdays currently opposed by Jupiter or Venus might choose the practical route.

Earth Signs: Capricorn, Taurus, & Virgo will tend to opt for the practical path.  Some Virgos might choose the innovative path, particularly if their birthday is currently opposed by Uranus.

Air Signs: Neither Gemini nor Libra will like the choices presented, but Gemini will be most productive with the innovative and Libra with the practical.  Aquarius will face both decisions the same as Leo: essentially split 50/50.

Fire Signs: Aries, like leader, would be wise to pick the practical.  Leo, like Aquarius, will have a dead center 50/50 choice.  “Things” are complicated for Sadge.  Except for the handful of Sadge natives born on December 17th or later, I’d recommend the practical.  I’d be willing to bet that Steven Spielberg is working on some particularly interesting project at this time.

Choose as you may; tomorrow is a new day.

Late October 2008 (Fingers of God and Void Suns)

October 20, 2008 at 6:50 pm | Posted in Holidays, Lunations, Predictions | Comments Off on Late October 2008 (Fingers of God and Void Suns)
Tags: , , , , , , , ,

The adept reader can easily read Tuesday for him or herself. Wednesday, October 22nd proves far more interesting from my vantage point.

Tuesday evening, or early Wednesday morning in the UK, the Sun will become void of course after Sun Sextile Pluto in Sadge. We’ve spoken of Pluto many times and spoken of how the last degree of Sadge is often associated with deception. Sextiles are generally considered benevolent, but this sextile, with Pluto, in this location, is not.

The Sun remains void on Wednesday as the Moon in Leo first inconjuncts Jupiter in Capricorn and then Uranus in Pisces. These two inconjuncts form a Yod or “finger of God.”

As mentioned before, this aspect is all about making a decision. The decision may be transient, as the Moon moves quickly, but it will be heartfelt. This decision will be about being stable, if boring, or being risky, but having potential. Despite my choice of words, neither path is particularly better or worse. They are both about your own personal “karma.” This is probably the one area of astrology that has the most “free will.” Think about it; which path would you prefer?

In the middle of the Yod, the Moon will oppose Chiron in Aquarius. This is another “Peace Sign in the Sky.” We saw one of those earlier this year; the energy is revisited on this day. This time we have Moon Opposite Chiron rather than Mars Opposite Neptune. Different players with different attitudes in the same configuration.

But, these events perfect inside a Solar Void, and that tells us that once again we will miss the mark. Sorry to disappoint you. We also encounter the first three degrees of Scorpio which are “too early to tell.” That location is also (as we say here in Texas) “smack dab in the middle” of the “Via Combusta.” We discussed that before, too. The Via Combusta is the toughest territory between Leo and Aquarius. (Some might ask, “which side?” The answer is “either.”)

The Solar Void is over by late Wednesday in the U.S. or early Thursday in the U.K.

Starting Thursday, we might could recover to make some significant progress somehow, but then the waning Moon followed by the aspects of Halloween (discussed elsewhere) kick in. We’ll get results (Mercury moves out of the region of the shadow of the most recent retrograde), but Mars interacting with Saturn and Uranus guarantees that a fun time will NOT be had by all, if any. I still opt for “cleaning house,” whether it is the garage or the budget.

The time of the shrinking moon from the time of the Solar Void to the New Moon of the 28th is a good time to clean house and throw out the trash. (And, again, maybe find lost objects.) That is a bonus of housecleaning in Scorpio (and especially Pisces): lost objects surface. You know the battle cry of engaging in this activity full tilt: “oh, THAT is where I put that.”

Don’t underestimate the power of this; what you find may be VERY important.

All these aspects provide more evidence that the best time to “get things done” (besides housecleaning, investigations, and finding lost objects) will probably be November 8th.

Summer Solstice 2008

Summer Solstice 2008

If you celebrate the Solstice, chances are that you’ve already done so by the time you read this. For many in the U.S., that celebration was Thursday evening. That is probably true in the UK and Europe as well. Some of you, though, may choose to celebrate this weekend because the gathering of friends, most convenient on a weekend, is more important than gathering slightly BEFORE the event occurs. Frankly, I like that idea in this case. Why?

The reason why is that we’ve all done intense energy work all weekend long. As much as possible, this weekend should be about rest & relaxation. The Aquarian Moon will tend to help with that, and most people will find this to be a pleasant weekend. A few possible “potholes” exist; this forecast will serve to illumine them.

I know some of you want only the “high points” without detailed analysis, so we’ll do those first.

High Points of the Summer Solstice of 2008

1. Have fun this weekend. That is very possible.

2. Watch out for lying and deception this weekend.

3. Watch out for a squabble particularly about money or taxes or fines, particularly on Friday night.

4. Do NOT “loan money” this weekend. Especially watch out for cheats & cons.

5. *DO* have fun with your friends. This is another GREAT “movie weekend.” Consider a sleepover with a ‘movie marathon.’

6. This is a GREAT weekend to spend on the water, possibly at a lake. BUT, this is a very BAD weekend to mix alcohol and boating. (No good weekend for that, but this one is even worse.)

7. Homebodies can get a great deal of cleaning this weekend, and might find old photos from “the good old days” that bring a strong sense of nostalgia. Pay debt.

Now, for the rest of you, on to the “nitty gritty details.”

Analysis by Sign

Aries: You can be very strong this weekend. Watch out for overspending on that nice new toy, and definitely do not create any new debt. Like ALL other signs, don’t loan money. Otherwise, this will be a great weekend for you. Try, though, to be an observer, if you can. You’ll LEARN a bit about others if you do so.

Taurus: Read Aries. You’ll be tempted to buy items for your home, and you’ll get some great buys if (1) you already wanted them and they are NOT something you were “talked into” by the salesperson and (2) you don’t create any new debt. You might not be as thrilled by the movie as some others, but you’ll have fun anyway.

Gemini: You need a break. This was a really busy week. Just relax, and resist ANY temptation to deceive someone. You CAN deceive effectively now, but you don’t want that karma. Watch the movie with your friends.

Cancer: Hold tight to your birthday. Like Aries, you should “watch the show” that others put on for you this weekend. Do *NOT* (did I emphasize that enough?) lend money or create debt. Like Taurus, you might get a nice item for your home.

Leo: Why are you so angry? You need a good workout this weekend. Finances tend to worry you this weekend. Focus instead on the most vigorous exercise you can safely participate in; a punching bag could bring you both physical and emotional relief. Friends are okay, but watch for trickery, possibly from an entire GROUP, maybe a conspiracy of family members against you!

Some of you are starting to enter your “Solar 12th house” and are in danger of “self-undoing.”  This is particularly true if your birthday is in July.

Virgo: You find yourself in the job of disciplinarian, especially if you are a parent. You’ll have the job of being the “voice of reason.” You can do this well, but secretly you want to play this weekend with the other boys & girls. Take time to recharge your batteries this weekend. You CAN take a break. Maybe you need a treat.

Libra: Read Aries. Keep in mind that your insights may be especially important to others this weekend. But, don’t offer advice unless asked. Keep your comments short & to the point. Use humor. Have fun.

Scorpio: Read Taurus & Leo. You can get some great buys; use your usual sense of prudence. Don’t beat up on people, though you’ll be tempted. If you are a police officer, then you’ll be busy this weekend. That means you’ll need to stay sober yourself.

Sagittarius: You are ordinarily a nice person, but you really need to watch your temper this weekend. Don’t go off the deep end. Instead, take some time for yourself. This does NOT mean you have to hide and be alone, but it does mean you’d better have some fun. Unlike most others, you’ll probably have a good eye for cheats. No reason you can’t turn the tables on them and have the “last laugh.” In fact, they deserve it for even thinking about taking you on. Go for it, just don’t get mad about it. Laugh instead.

Capricorn: Okay, it is a tough weekend in some ways for you. People seem frivolous and a bit unpredictable. You can still have fun, though, and you might even make a little money if that is your desire. Just make certain it is money coming in rather than money going out. (You’ll be tempted to spend.)

Aquarius: This is *YOUR* weekend. Okay, you’ll have other weekends, too. But this will be an outstanding weekend for some, make that MANY, of you. Please do play. Take nothing seriously. Refuse to believe anything anyone says, probably even including me! 🙂 Your sense of art and proportion are good this weekend, so if you are an artist of some kind then (as Captain Picard would say) “Make it so.” (But don’t incur debt for that purpose.)

Pisces: Yes, you can get your way this weekend. BUT, is it really what you want? If you succumb under pressure to some strong personality, or especially a group of them, and then cheat or deceive someone who could be your best ally, then what will you gain? Think about it. Your ally might be tired of that kind of behavior.

If you are a poker player, you might “clean up” this weekend. (No “markers,” though.)

If you channel that “creativity” of yours in the right direction, then you might have some fun without anyone getting their feelings hurt. Maybe you are the one who needs to organize “sleepover movie night,” but without any grandiose expenditures.

If you do host a party, you’ll be at the center. Do you want to be? (It is okay if you really do.)

The Planetary Players of the Weekend of the Summer Solstice of 2008

Besides the solstice, and the previous planetary events of this week (especially the Full Moon and Mercury Direct Station), three events will color this weekend: (1) Sun Opposite Pluto (which is an “after statement” to the Full Moon Energy); (2) Mars Opposite Neptune; and (3) Venus Sextile Saturn (which requires a LONG discussion). We’ll cover the first one and dispose of that, and then we’ll dive in greater depth into #2 and #3 (together). So, we have Part #1 (Sun Opposite Pluto & the Full Moon Wrapup) and we have Part #2 (Mars Opposite Neptune and the Finger of God).

Sun Opposite Pluto & the Full Moon Wrapup

The first few days of the week, tied to the Full Moon of Wednesday June 18th, will be “wrapped up” by Sun Opposite Pluto on Friday June 20th. Of course, Astrology studies cycles, and one story blends into another. But, this punctuation mark (and that is what this kind of aspect is) comes with the Solstice. Other variants will occur in a new season and be more tightly tied to newer stories to be told. So, what does it mean?

Pluto has returned to the end of Sadge, and that is the key issue here. The final degrees of any sign are said to be “fated degrees,” and these particular degrees are especially associated with deception and theft. All the negative aspects of Sadge will tend to be highlighted at this time: religious extremists, possibly terrorists, murder in the name of God, court rulings that are either wrong or unjust or both, and a sense of “playfulness” applied in very wrong ways. (Do you remember in the original “Highlander” movie where we learned that the Kurgan, and “his tribe, the Kurgans, were infamous for their cruelty, and were known to ‘toss children into pits full of starved dogs, and watch them fight [for the] meat’ for amusement.” THAT is the kind of “playfulness” associated with the END of Sadge. Not pretty.)

Now, that said, the type of PLANET in that space makes a BIG difference. In this case, the planet is PLUTO, ruler of death in general, death by assassination in particular, death by poisoning even more so, and secrets, torture, and a number of other horrible things.

Frankly, myself, I don’t like this combination of planet and place.

One big issue here will be “human rights abuses.” On a smaller scale, it will be injustice. The “mean girls” will tend to win. But, Sun OPPOSING Pltuo may mean that, in some cases, authority figures of some kind may “step in” to halt some of these problems. The Sun can’t really win against Pluto on a long term basis, so the key will be for Pluto to move direct (in a few months) and return to Capricorn. The downside to this will be a profound “belt tightening” in our economy. We’ll already had a taste of this, but it will get stronger. Your mantra should be “no debt.”

If you can’t achieve that, then it should be “no new debt.” If you are in the business of lending money, you shouldn’t take on ANY new risky loans; you can count on them deceiving you now (Pluto Rx in Sadge) and defaulting later (when Pluto returns to Capricorn).

I know some of my readers might be thieves. Yes, this is your weekend. Sigh.

Practically, as an individual, this could lead to power struggles this weekend, particularly over money. Taxes (also Pluto) may be the biggest issues of all. Count on them (taxes) showing up in political dialogs. Like new debt, new taxes should be avoided. They might seem very attractive NOW, but Pluto in Capricorn can make them very ugly later.

One other thing, this particular drama indicates that the solution to human rights abuse in other countries CAN be found in the decisions made by Corporate America (and UK and Europe). The key, of course, will be to give Corporate America “tax incentives” to do things that “encourage” foreign countries to protect human rights. (Maybe that is the approach Amnesty International should use: lobby Congress to give tax incentives to Big Corp. to protect human rights in foreign countries.)

On a small scale for certain readers (you know who you are): you know that Aunt or Uncle who saved money all of their lives and lived very conservatively? The one you never liked but now is in a GREAT position financially while you are worried about FORECLOSURE? You should NOT ask them for a bailout (and deceiving them will cause you painful karma you don’t want to have). But, you SHOULD get their insights and advice and “take your medicine” to clear out the debt & financial problems. If you don’t listen to the Dave Ramsey show, then you should consider doing so.

Like Father’s Day, if you can “avoid the fight,” you’ll probably have a pretty good weekend. But, again, some people will have terrific struggles over money and spending this weekend.

Mars Opposite Neptune and the Finger of God

At this point, I’d like to tell you some great story about Mars Opposite Neptune and how powerful that aspect is. I’d like to discuss how some commentators noted Mars/Neptune activity in the birth chart of Bill Clinton, and how they claimed that this is the REAL reason that he was “Teflon Bill.” (Monica Lewinsky proved that name wrong, though.) That’s what I’d like to tell you.

Instead, I must say that this is an extraordinarily complicated “big planet” configuration that, frankly, might be a little beyond my ability. In addition to Mars Opp Neptune, we have Venus Sextile Saturn. Venus & Saturn are another story entirely. The problem is, Venus & Saturn are NOT playing separately from Mars and Neptune. If they were, analysis would be much easier. In fact, the configuration looks like a huge “peace sign” in the sky, with Neptune “by itself” (not true, but pretend so for the moment) and Mars opposite of it as the “center leg”, with Venus and Saturn forming the right and left legs of the “peace sign.”

Now, I am NOT saying that this configuration will “bring peace.” Sun Opposite Pluto (described above) won’t let it. Actually, Neptune has both the Moon and Chiron as neighbors. All three are in Aquarius, and this metaphorically speaks to the needs and desires of “the people” for healing and dreams of hope. Last weekend we had illusions. This weekend, we HAVE to believe in a “better way,” despite the Evil of Sun Opp Pluto. Primarily Neptune (but also the other planets) form the “Finger of God” that I’ve described before (credit: Stephanie Azaria). The choice seems to be between Venus (in Cancer, the home of the Moon) and Saturn (in Virgo, the home of Mercury and sign of the Earth Mother).

I try to avoid politics, but this weekend seems to speak of how profoundly tired “the people” are of war. Sun Opp Pluto tells us we can make some terrible mistakes with wrong decisions based on poorly thought-out approaches. Regardless, we are tired of war, we are tired of being cheated, and we are tired of the no longer “playful” aspects of Gemini & Sadge. The time has come for a return to the source of our sustenance.

So, you’ll have a choice to make this weekend, and it will almost certainly affect many people around you. Given that you “handle” the power struggle “correctly,” (and this doesn’t mean that you “win” in the ordinary sense of the word), you will have to choose between being a source of sustenance and being a provider of discipline. Neither position is necessarily right or wrong. You’ll have to apply your own sense of discernment, keeping in mind that deception is afoot.

I suppose I should say that, as the weekend progresses, I might “tune” this forecast. Making it stronger will lay a foundation for the forecast for next week, probably to be published on Sunday.
