Harvest Moon 2016 (2016-10-15) A Butterfly and a Hard Rectangle

More than a few of you have correctly deduced that this is one of the more special Full Moon(s).  We begin by showing a chart of the FM that contains a pattern we have not seen before.  We call it a “Hard Butterfly” in the absence of any other name to the contrary.  It is composed of two interlaced T-Squares that also contain a Hard Rectangle within them.  Here is the fourth order harmonic chart that most clearly elucidates this pattern.

Here is the Full Moon chart filtered to more clearly show the Hard Rectangle:

As we have discussed before, these kinds of patterns (T-Squares and especially Hard Rectangles) provide so much energy that they are “dangerous.”  You can accomplish much, but you run the risk of “overdoing it.”  Martians (Intelligence Agencies, Police, and Athletes) will tend to do well and in some cases have tremendous accomplishments but, again, run the risk of “overdoing it.”  If you are not a Martian, then make certain you avoid dangerous people, places, and things and avoid being such a person yourself.

A Thor’s Hammer (God’s Fist) pattern is also present with Saturn (the Greater Malefic, and a source of tests, trials, and tribulations) is at the Apex.  This is yet another amplifier of the situation we have already described, and it is associated with people, places, and things going “boom.”  Here is the same chart but filtered for the TH:

We will likely have more to say and more to add over the course of the day as the FM moves towards perfection.  Till then, we encourage you to focus your efforts into beneficial and useful work, avoid dangerous people, places, and things, and have as much safe fun as you can muster on the even of this “Harvest Moon.”

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.

Full Moon 2016-07-19 Diamond Pattern

Full Moon 2016-07-19 Diamond Pattern

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

2016-07-19-FullMoon-Diamond

[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:

2016-07-19-FullMoon-Rosetta

[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:

2016-07-19-FullMoon-HardRectangle

[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.

2016-07-19-FullMoon-MysticRectangle

[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).

2016-07-19-FullMoon-Kites

[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.

2016-07-19-FullMoon-ThorsHammer

[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.

2016-07-19-FullMoon-GrandCross

[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:

2016-07-19-FullMoon-Yod

[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.

2016-07-19-FullMoon-GrandTrine

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.

2016-05 W21: Forecasts for Week 21 of 2016

Archive of Week 20 (W20)

We are the end of May and a series of retrogrades including Mercury Retrograde that has been with us for a few weeks (to a few months, depending on which retrograde we are talking about) will be ending.  Jupiter has moved direct, and Mercury Retrograde stations direct now.  Direct movement will be slow, and we will be in the “shadow” for a bit, but now is a good time to start launching truly new projects as opposed to reviewing and resurrecting old ones.

Those old projects either proved to be a good idea “after all” or they did not.  If they are good, stick with them and grow them.  But, if not, put them back on hold or discard them altogether.  The time is at hand to look at new things and new ideas.

The Taurus New Moooon perfected on May 6th, and we have a Full Moon (Sagittarius Moon / Gemini Sun) on May 21st (a day after Sun moves into Gemini).  Let’s be clear: for better or worse, “things” will change with this lunation and the accompanying Mercury direct station.

School is out, and has been out, for most students, and that particular weekend (May 21/22) marks the true beginning of “summer” for anyone who follows the academic year.  But astrological summer, the official beginning of “summer,” does not begin until the Summer Solstice on June 20th (which also has another full moon).  The retrograde station of Chiron on June 27th and direct station of Mars on June 29th will mark another significant shift.  We will cover these events in more detail as they near, but keep in mind these critical dates as you set plans for vacations, trips, meetings, and so forth.

May 2016 (Mars Out)

Week 21 (W21)

Sunday May 15th

Moon joins Jupiter in early morning hours (circa 3 AM CDT) and emphasizes the Grand Earth Trine that dominates the day.  For most people, this is a “feel good” day though earth and water signs benefit most.  Jim Shawvan notes an Opportunity Period for most of the day, and we agree.  Do keep in mind that Mercury is still retrograde (as are several other planets), so either avoid doing anything “too serious” or focus on older “on hold” projects that need to relaunch.  Much CAN be accomplished today, if that is your intent, but you must choose the right projects and keep in mind that some aspects may need to be revisited after Mercury retrograde ends (May 22nd) and possibly later this summer.

Monday May 16th

The opportunity period ends early and Moon is void until half past noon CDT.  Some people see yesterday’s window vanish and wonder “what happened?”  But you are smarter than that because you read these forecasts, right?  You did take complete advantage of yesterday’s window and leave nothing undone until today, didn’t you?

If not, no worry, other windows will open again “some day.”  But “getting things done” is tougher today than Sunday, and today just might have to be a cleanup day.

Tuesday May 17th

We face a decision today, a rather “loose” and open yod that dominates the afternoon.  You must make a decision, and we cannot tell you which path to pick except to pick one and do not look back.  You will be tempted to wonder “what might have been” if you had picked the other path.  Do not waste time doing that; it would not have been any better.

Wednesday May 18th

Accomplish what you can in the early morning; a loose T-Square will give you the “juice” to do that if you can focus yourself.  After a bit past 10 AM the Moon turns void and most of the rest of the day is best spent in review, cleaning house, or as a “day off.”  Do keep in mind that taking a “day off” midweek can be a good idea every so often.

Thursday May 19th

To be frank, this is a rather strange day.  Some people will have rather remarkable opportunities, truly gifts, come to them, but it does require intense work of some kind.  The “work” may be entirely focused on addressing your emotions in certain situations or it may be actual work: doing bookkeeping or conducting an experiment or some other kind of research.  Some people, as well, will be “losers” and this will be a bad day for them.

Health and educational issues will tend to come to the forefront.

This last full day of Taurus has a feeling of “fate” to it for many of us.

Friday May 20th

Sun moves into Gemini early Friday morning, and just in case you did not get the message yesterday, change is afoot.  Things are about to become different, very different, for some people (if they have not already).  The Full Moon is tomorrow (Saturday) and Mercury stations direct on Sunday.  Windows you thought would never close are now gone forever, but others will open.  Such is life.

Saturday May 21st

The Full Moon today gives us a glimpse of the future but with a few pieces missing.  Today is a very important day for some people.  Casual meetings that are supposed to be “fun” turn out to be critically important turning points.  Some people will meet their “life partner” today and it will seem like both and “accident” and “fate” at the same time!  Be assured that universe becomes “unlocked” for some people, and they are able to do certain things that transcend the ordinary.

For others, today will seem massively chaotic and like a day best spent at home.  Fire and air signs tend to prosper; unenlightened variants of earth and water wonder what happened to the window that was open this past Sunday.  Be assured that you will see even more change with tomorrow’s Mercury direct station and the events of next week.

Week 22 (W22)

Appulse Lunar Eclipse (FM) 2016-03-23 (Hard Rectangle)

Appulse Lunar Eclipse (FM) 2016-03-23 (Hard Rectangle)

Let us face it, the big thing about this “full moon” is that it is an eclipse.  Following immediately on the heels of that fact, in importance, is the presence of a “Hard Rectangle.”  Hard Rectangles are a newer pattern and tricky to interpret.  They also tend to be rare, and that adds to the difficulty of categorizing them.  Energetically, they resemble a Thor’s Hammer (aka God’s Fist), but they are not necessarily violent (but could be).

The attack in Brussels, less than 24 hours prior to the perfection of the eclipse (and Hard Rectangle) lends credence to the idea that they may be associated with violence.  But the energy associated with them likely CAN be channeled into more constructive endeavors.

In any case, here is the chart, filtered for the HR, and in basic form:

For those new to astrology, and trying to learn the basics, we present the same chart in “Beginners” format:

Since we consider this to be a particularly important chart, we will also present it AGAIN in “Horary format” to present certain data useful to people who need that information.  (i.e. “traditionalists”):

Appulse Lunar Eclipse (FM) 2016-03-23 (Hard Rectangle) Horary

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Since the discussion of the events in Brussels will likely be covered in depth elsewhere, we will avoid in-depth analysis at this time (reserving the right for later) and only note that (1) similar to 9/11, these occurred in a void, and (2) these occurred less than 24 hours prior to the eclipse / hard rectangle.

A Square Key and Hele are also present, both long term and both discussed elsewhere recently on this blog.  In summary, (1) important alliances will be formed during this window of time and (2) important lessons will be learned.

That said, what else can we say about this particular eclipse?  Well, a critical generational group will be profoundly affected by this eclipse because the transiting Sun/Moon will form the Apex of a yod involving natal Neptune (Scorpio) and natal Pluto (Virgo) for this group:

If you or someone you know / love is in this group, they will face at this time (possibly today but certainly this year) the MOST IMPORTANT DECISION or decisions that they likely will ever face in their life.

Many decisions are important, but this one unquestionably is of paramount importance.  I would go so far as to ignore the nuances and just say “the period from 1956 to 1960, inclusive.”  And an argument could easily be made for widening the window to a few years earlier and a few years later.

If you know of anyone in this age group, pass on the news.  It might make an important difference.

So, what are the choices?  (1) the Eclipse at 3 Aries tells us that we MUST take action.  (2) the Neptune leg is passive and just letting things be, but it is in Scorpio, and we will feel changes and “transformation” (possibly losses) if we follow this route.  (3) the Pluto leg is in Virgo (and therefore requires work) and focuses on health and healthcare as well as accounting and bookkeeping.  In the end, no matter which leg we pick, if we are alive in a few years (as this group moves through its second Saturn return), we may not resemble our former selves.  A radical transformation will happen.  That is a certainty.

All we have said about the Hard Rectangle (energy, possibly violence), Hele (alliances), and Square Key (lessons) will especially apply here and likely over the next year (or longer).  The long window of repeating Jupiter Square Saturn aspects, including todays perfection, confirms the longer term quality of this eclipse / hard rectangle.

If you are not in this age group, do not think you are immune.  Chances are good you are connected to someone in this group in an important way, and their chances will have an impact on you as well.

Our final note is this: based on both the Hard Rectangle AND what happened in Brussels yesterday, we are living in dangerous times.  Be careful.

Uranus square Pluto with 1 degree orb:

Unexpected aggression from radical group in an unlikely social place. (Uranus at 19 degrees Aries in the 11th house).

A powerful force hidden and revealed in the place of long distance traveling, in the airport where the planes needs to ascend for travel. (Pluto at 18 degrees Capricorn in the 9th house)

Denial and refusal to acknowledge this world’s hectic occurrences will only perpetuate it’s happenings until we “wake up” and become conscious, collectively.

These bombings are a testament to the lack of power of the “powers that be” actually have or demonstrate. Protection for civilian life is absolutely required… Whose responsibility is it? How does a political power come into play here? How does societies power come into play here? We can’t honestly continue doing the same thing expecting different results…

Sun in Aries, Full Moon in Libra: Drive and Kindness

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: I am You!

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…

2016-03-23 Calendar of Aspects

March 2016 (Mars Out)

Week 13 (W13)

We have a double header with Jupiter Square Saturn today along with the Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon Aries / Libra).  Note that Jupiter / Saturn will perfect again May 26th, and this aspect exerts continuing influence from February 14th of 2016 until October 28th of 2016.  Chances are good this week, maybe today, will mark an important milestone in this window.  The eclipse punctuates that.

2016-03-23 Sunout All Aspects (Daily)

Sun conjoins Mercury circa 3:11 PM CDT, and the window form 2:40 PM until 3:40 PM CDT is particularly useful (Cazimi) for key actions involving communications or transportation.  You can buy that car, computer or phone if you can seal the entire deal during this window.

A Hard Rectangle also forms on the 23rd:

Hard Rectangle Enters   March 23 2016 5:56:47 am (CDT +5:00)
Hard Rectangle Leaves March 23 2016 3:32:35 pm (CDT +5:00)
