February 1st 2016 (W06)

A glance at the Mystic Rectangles monthy “Mars Out” forecast shows several septile (triseptile) aspects of outer planets.  These aspects are subtle, but they mark this as a day of karma in which we best help ourselves by anonymously helping someone less fortunate than ourselves without expecting anything in return.

Pluto / Vesta are square, and we find a conflict between “doing things the way we have always done them” and the true sources of power present in power structures such as the police and intelligence agencies.  For some people, this is a time of very kinky sex (if you are into that kind of thing).  For anyone who is a “sex worker”: please be extra careful at this time.

Please keep in mind that we are still processing, and clearing out, the energy of the T-Square perfections of the past weekend (Friday / Sunday).

Some of what we said Sunday bears repeating here:

For some people, this is the kind of Sunday where, on Monday, you pretend to leave for work but go somewhere entirely different and hide for a day or week or year. (Maybe you “go out for cigarettes and never come back,” as was popular in the 1950’s and 1960’s.) Do keep in mind that “this too shall pass,” and “things” will become different. (Not “better” or “worse” but “different.”) But, again, this will be a critically important turning point for some people who choose to move into new circumstances.

While we are technically still in the “retrograde shadow,” in many ways moving past this final aspect of the sequence ends this particular sequence of dramas and opens the door for us to (finally!) move in new directions. But, in January of 2017 (when Mercury conunct Pluto perfects again), we may want to revisit our thoughts, notes, and decisions at this time.

Mars (in Scorpio) is septile the North Node, and this harkens to those willing to do the work to transform their lives, starting today.  I am especially speaking to anyone in a criminal occupation or group who is considering doing something like “Witness Relocation.”  Do it today, and never look back.  It will not be easy, but one day you will be grateful to yourself that you did.

For the rest of us, consider what big leap you need to make today or at the time of the New Moon (a week from today).  That NM has a Double Yod Key (DYK), and everyone will face a GROUP of important decisions at that time.  (For more about 2016 New Moons, click here.)

We cannot say it better about today and the rest of this week:  “Waning SCORPIO MOON today and tomorrow is excellent for purging and clearing anyway…”  (Source: Melanies Astro News; see, also: Melanies Astro News)

Finally, we note that the upcoming Aquarius New Moon on February 8th marks the beginning of the Chinese New Year and the beginning of the related festivities. (See, also: this article from the Telegraph.)

Mercury conjunct Saturn (with a Yod and more) 2015-11-24

Late in the U.S. on November 24th (and in the early morning hours for the EU/UK), Mercury conjunct Saturn perfects.  We note that Saturn and Neptune are so close to perfecting their first square, that Mercury square Neptune perfects only two hours later (after midnight in all time zones except PST).  Therefore, both should be discussed.  And, a Yod is in play, the Moon is at almost exactly 170 degrees from the Sun (with the Full Moon of November 2015 perfecting the next day), and a number of other patterns are perfecting and dissolving on the 24th and 25th.  We show this chart filtered for the Yod in play at time of perfection:

2015-11-24 Mercury conjunct Saturn

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that the apex of the Yod is found at the South Node, associated both with old, well worn habit patterns and “taking the easy way out.”  It is “doing things the way we have always done them,” and it is a bit like Vesta.  However, the South Node is also about a failure to make progress.  One leg of this yod ties to Juno (wives, sisters, and women in similar roles as well as issues of trust and betrayal) and the other leg of the yod ties to Astraea (law and the legal system).  If you have been treacherous with someone, are you going to make amends with them, or are you going to do battle with them in the legal system?  Please do note that you will have a strong tendency to do whatever it is you have done in the past, and doing something different may prove difficult despite the idea, “in theory,” that you have a choice.

That said, the actual aspect, Mercury conjunct Saturn, is rather famous for being able to complete detailed and meticulous work.  But Saturn is near perfection of a square to Neptune, and this means that Mercury square Neptune perfects within a few hours.  In a natal chart, Mercury square Neptune tends to be associated with alcohol and drug abuse.  It can be associated with lying and deception.  But it is also a superb aspect for writing poetry, lyrics, possibly fiction, photography, and videography.  If you find it difficult to sleep tonight, maybe you should review the detail work you wisely did before perfection of this aspect and look for the poetry in it.  Failing that, simply write some poetry or maybe perform some creative photography.  This is a good window and a good use for such things.  Moving beyond the messiness of Mars quincunx Neptune earlier in the day is a worthwhile endeavor, especially if you have learned the lesson you needed to learn and can move forward.

Keep in mind that the Full Moon perfects tomorrow, and if you possibly can you want to bring to a close the important steps in any project you are trying to grow at this time.

Mars Quincunx Neptune 2015-11-24

Today is a bit of a strange day, and we discuss it extensively on the related calendar page at Mystic Rectangles.  That said, this aspect will affect everyone in one way or another.  For some people, it will be a glitch and they will move on.  For others, it will be a glitch, but they will learn a useful lesson, either soon afterwards or later this evening.  For still yet others, it will make a mess of their entire day and little progress will be had because of the mess it makes.  At least to SOME degree, you can choose which one of these you prefer.

Libra (where Mars is located) and Pisces (where Neptune is located) will feel this strongest.  At the moment we are speaking of solar Libra and solar Pisces.  But you might be an entirely different sign, and if you have another planet (Moon, Mercury, Venus, etc.) within a degree of 7 degrees Libra or 7 degrees Pisces, then you will feel it rather strongly.  Anyone with a planet at 7 degrees of any other sign (actually, between 6 and 9) will feel it to some degree.  The rest of us will likely have a chance to watch the show from the sidelines.

Thor’s Hammers abound this week, and a Yod is in play later today (offering a decision) but the only pattern found in this chart is a slightly longer term T-Square involving Venus, Uranus, and Pluto.  We show the chart filtered for that T-Square:

2015-11-24 Mars quincunx Neptune

[Click Image to Enlarge]

With that in mind, we note that this T-Square is closely related to the series of Uranus / Pluto squares that perfected the past three years.  That tells us that the potential for violence is still quite real and present.  Keep your wits about you.

Mercury conjunct Saturn (and square Neptune) perfects near midnight, and “things” change dramatically.  Learn the lesson you can from the messiness this morning (afternoon in the UK/EU), and you will be prepared for what you can accomplish this evening.

We also note that the Full Moon of November 2015 perfects tomorrow.  Also, note that this aspect involves outer planets or “generational” planets, so the effect of events today are likely to be longer term (at least two years).

Saturn Square Neptune… the Dissolving of Egotism

5D Astrology

So I couldn’t wait for Mars to move off his Conjunction to Jupiter on Friday and Saturday (expanded/Jupiter nervous energy/Virgo for action/Mars) as I was wanting to get to the meat of a major Transit that is just really beginning, again, to be felt in earnest: Saturn in Sagittarius Square Neptune in Pisces. On Mar 15 of this year, Saturn Stationed Retrograde at 4:56 Sagittarius just inside a 3 degree orb to Neptune at 7:54 Pisces. Events near that time were a foreshadowing of what is come as they exact 3 Squares over the next 8year: Nov 26, 2015 and Jun 18 and Sep 10, 2016.

Saturn Retrograded into Scorpio from Jun 15 – Sep 17, 2015 wrapping up our accountability around intimacy and sharing of resources stories (Karmic) when Saturn Trined Neptune 3 times in 2012-2013.. Now back in Sagittarius for the next 2+ years, the energy of Saturn’s…

Is what we see real? Is it a illusion? Is there a barrier between realms? If it is all an illusion then why do our actions have consequences? A day of metaphysical pondering awaits!

Disillusion – Neptune square Saturn

Well said.

emerging pattern

Dream versus reality, fantasy versus fact, ocean versus earth: Saturn in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces is closing in – the first square will occur 26.11.2015 at 7°.

The world feels like a harsh place these days. Terror in France and Libanon, war at so many places on earth, with religion as a driving force, so much faith without love, so many people fleeing their homes, so much fear and no answers.

When Saturn and Neptune meet next week, they will touch my natal Neptune in Sagittarius, exact at 7°. The last weeks I fought my personal  fear and disillusion. I felt alone and disconnected. Maybe this is the shadow of this aspect, but there is light somewhere. Saturn will sextile my natal Jupiter in Aquarius and my natal Pluto at 6° Libra, so he will act supportive in a natal trine that gives me lots of transformational energy.

Melanie's Astro~News

NEPTUNE in PISCES, presently retrograde and ‘stationary’ (apparently very very slowly moving backwards in the Zodiac, from Earth perspective) goes direct on Nov 18, AND will be also squared by SATURN in SAG on Nov 26 (the effect of this transit is noticeable all Nov and Dec).

SATURN and NEPTUNE have a 35-year cycle together (from conjunction to square to opposition to conjunction). The present SATURN – NEPTUNE cycle started with their conjunction in 1989 when the Berlin Wall came down, setting off an avalanche of crumbling of the Communist regimes in Eastern Europe.

Neptune

NEPTUNE in its own domain of PISCES (from 2012 until 2026) is in Nov and Dec one of the focal points in the Astro~Weather, since it’s changing direction from Earth perspective. It’s a good idea to be aware of its Archetype, and able to recognize what’s up when we’re getting ‘hooked’.

NEPTUNE is a transpersonal planet…

2015-11-03 Jupiter Opposite Chiron (Rosetta + Thor’s Hammer Key)

2015-11-03 Jupiter Opposite Chiron (Rosetta + Thor’s Hammer Key)

You have been feeling it at least for the last week or two, and you may have been feeling it since before the final Blood Moon Eclipse of the 2014/2015 Tetrad.  It is Jupiter Opposite Chiron, and it is part of the mix associated with Jupiter Opposite Neptune and other aspects we talked about perfecting on September 17th of this year.  It brings to a head key issues involving health and healthcare, or teaching and education, or mentoring and 1:1 collegial relationships; or some kind of mix of two or all three of those.

Today the aspect perfects.  You may have already received the relevant (and critical news) last week or the week before.  You may receive it in a few days.  Often “nothing happens” on the day of the perfection of these critical outer planet turning points.  But Jupiter has a twelve year orbit, and Chiron has a fifty year orbit, so your precise personal variant of how this affects you may not be “day of the perfection.”  The “orbs” (boundary lines for events) of the Moon are hours long and based on a 28 day cycle.  Since the same sized orbs (measured in degrees of a circle) are based on Chiron’s fifty year orbit, expect those “orbs” to last 365 x 2 (730) times as long.  If we allow 2 hours on each side of the Moon’s orbs, then we should allow about 1,460 hours for Chiron, which translates to about sixty days (about two lunar months).  Jupiter’s orbit is only twelve years, so the corresponding orbs should be about twelve days (half a lunar month).

THIS issue of “orbs” is why we keep referencing that pivotal date of September 17th (and also October 11th) as a turning point for the outer planet (“generational planet”) events through the end of the year.  Chances are VERY good that you will NOT feel this perfection “day of” the event (unless it EXACTLY aspects some planet or point in your personal natal chart), but you WILL feel it in the two weeks prior or two weeks after (Jupiter’s orb, using the fastest moving planet and, therefore, the smallest and most precise window).

And, as an aside, if you look back to the days “near” September 17th (allowing some latitude due to Jupiter’s orbs), you will note an important turning point there.  And, by “latitude” we mean this turning point could have been earlier, maybe on the 11th or 12, or later, maybe on the 21st or 22nd.  But, you had a turning point, and you made a decision.

You made some important decision at that turning point.  It may not have seemed important at the time, but, in hindsight, you will eventually see that it was the kind that changes the course of your life.

If you were a student, you may have decided to go play rather than prepare for an exam.  You got in trouble with the exam.  You were going to “pull it together.”  But, now, you see that you cannot.  You will fail out of school and will be working in a drive through asking “would you like fries with that.”  Or, you might become a revolutionary like Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, or Steve Jobs.  Maybe the most important class you are taking will turn out to be calligraphy.  (See, also: this story.)

You do have some choice in the matter.  The planets in the sky are invariant, but your personal, individual decisions are not.

Or maybe you did the work.  And, if you can push through, do what it takes in this final window of November and December, you can have both a successful semester and a breakthrough.  You can show yourself “you can do it.”  It depends on the decisions you made and the necessary followup actions you took.  And, as Steve Jobs said, some day you can look back and “connect the dots” if you follow your heart “even if it takes you off the well worn path.”

Or maybe you are an older adult who did, or did not, see a physician.  Depending on your situation, you can see where things may be going with your health and healthcare.

And if September 17th was not the turning point, then surely the days surrounding the Focused Yod associated with the perfection of Jupiter Trine Pluto on October 11th were.  Focused Yods are all about not only making decisions but taking the necessary action to accomplish the results.

So, what is “it” that you will feel as this aspect perfects?  We re-iterate: some key point involving education, healthcare, or mentoring.  Since Jupiter ALSO rules the legal system, this could involve the law and possible lawsuits.  But, the key issues will be education and healthcare (Chiron).  We see all of this tied into the current political debates.  And, as an aside, Jupiter ALSO rules foreign relations (particularly ambassadors) and, therefore, issues of immigration.  Think about it: these are the key issues of our current political climate.  (Health (“Obamacare”), Education, Foreign Relations (Middle East, China, et al), and Immigration (particularly Mexico and points south).

So, here is the chart, which is filtered for the Rosetta (short term allegiances) which was present and continues to be present for the next few days.  Being a longer term pattern, it is almost certainly the most important pattern in the perfection of this aspect:

2015-11-03 Jupiter Opposite Chiron (Rosetta)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We also see a Thor’s Hammer present.  Actually, we see TWO of them in a configuration that we have previously named a “Thor’s Hammer Key.”  The presence of TWO patterns almost always means, in astrology, two or MORE situations involving that pattern (here the Thor’s Hammer associated with impulsive actions, extreme conflict, and people like Adam Lanza).  As many of you can “guess” from the situation in the Middle East (specifically Syria but other problems also) and Eastern Europe (the ongoing Russia / Ukraine conflict), we live in dangerous time.

Here is the same chart, filtered to show the Thor’s Hammer Key:

2015-11-03 Jupiter Opposite Chiron (Thor's Hammer Key)

[Click to Enlarge]

At this point, some of you may ask: how do I use this “energy.”  The answer is to enjoy your short term allegiances knowing either you may never see them again or they may turn treacherous if you do, and to avoid rash and impulsive actions and people while focusing your attention (and possibly your anger) to “get something (useful, and non-violent) done.”

As an aside, as we have said before, people who have violence and physical altercations woven into their life (soldier, police, boxers, MMA athletes, bar room bouncers) may actually BENEFIT from this kind of pattern.  But, if you are not one of those kind of people, best to avoid them (or people or situations that invoke their presence) if you can.

We do not see particularly significant patterns in 5th harmonic or 7th harmonic aspects in this chart.  So, no brainstorms or karma issues to work through.  This is all about temporary allegiances and doing the work to get the job done (without being angry or impulsive).

Mars Opposite Chiron 2015-10-23

As this aspect perfects, we see much “energy” (likely anger) regarding issues that involve healthcare or education or both.  This is a repeating theme over this week and into next week, with some of the issues causing a frantic panic for some people.  Friday (today) and Sunday (October 25th) are particularly busy days.  We note that both a Hele and a Thor’s Hammer are in effect for these aspects, and do not repeat the filtering here.

Here is the chart for perfection of the aspect, filtered for oppositions:

2015-10-23 Mars Opposite Chiron (Oppositions)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

With a large cluster of planets in Virgo, and another group of planets in Pisces and Aries, we see a period of numerous oppositions and some quincunxes.  We also note that this particular opposition involves, specifically, “outer planets” (generational planets) and marks another turning point in the stage that we all play upon.
