Full Moon 2021-03-28 (Libra Moon opposite Aries Sun)

This is the first full moon after the Vernal Equinox, and it precedes Easter on April 5, 2021.

This FM has interesting activity:

  • Hard Rectangle : like a Thor’s Hammer, tempers flare BUT an amazing amount of work can be accomplished if the energy can be focused into accomplishment
  • Yod : We each face a decision of some kind, individually (based on your chart) and collectively (because of the Hele); it is a difficult decision, and it risks upsets or accidents or ambushes or wrong decisions (given the Hard Rectangle) that lead to conflict (fights, battles, wars); The Moon is at apex of the yod (the “focal” energy) with Uranus (surprises, electrical shocks, explosions, ambushes, sometimes brilliant mental insight and solutions) on one leg and asteroid Pallas (also brilliant mental insight and solutions but they tend to be “military” in nature given that Pallas sprang fully formed and armored from the head of her father (Zeus / Jupiter / Thor, depending on whose pantheon you have adopted).Both solutions are “close” and similar but NOT the same.  Though Solar Fire did not read it this way, this is a FOCUSED Yod with the Moon at Apex and Sun / Chiron / Venus conjunct at the Focal Point (and opposite the Moon).  *IF* properly focused, again, you can accomplish MUCH, some of it of a breakthrough nature.
  • Kite or “Kite Almost” : opportunities are present; this is “luck” for some
  • Hele : in some form these have been present for weeks; it is all about politics and political alignments; cohesion within parties is strong; conflict is public; expect our current messes to WORSEN rather than needed fixes be applied
  • Grand Trines : the aspect for which this blog is named; these tend to make for “easy” times but the Hard Rectangle will override that; in that case, again, these can be “luck” if the energy of the times is properly focused; (look for opportunities; they WILL be present!)
  • T-Squares : T-Squares seem to always be present; these are associated at least in part with recent the recent Grand Cross and associated tragedies; a push will exist to “get things done” but the question becomes : “what does that mean?”  Wrong solutions are tempting if they are “easy.”(Don’t take “the easy way out.”  Work through your own issues instead of expecting a scapegoat.)

Solar Eclipse of September 1st 2016

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:

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:

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):

Full Moon August 18th 2016: Danger and Opportunity

We see both danger and opportunity in this Leo / Aquarius Full Moon.  With Sun at 25 degrees Leo and Moon at 25 Aquarius, both are square to Algol in Taurus.  That alone would be enough to give pause.  But, a pronounced Thor’s Hammer pattern is present, and that is present with anger and temper and people, places, and things that go Boom!

Here is the FM chart, filtered for the Thor’s Hammer pattern:

A Rosetta pattern is present, telling us that we will need to make allegiances but they will tend to be short-lived and may turn to treachery:

We often ignore T-Squares in our analysis, but a number are present and some of this has figured in a major way in events this summer starting in May / June.  Here is the same FM chart but filtered for T-Squares:

Please do note that Mars, in Sagittarius, is square the Nodes in Virgo / Pisces (the Nodes are sometimes called “Rahu” and “Ketu” by Vedic astrologers).  This brings an especially “karmic” or fated feel to any violence that occurs at this time.  And, by this FM, at least some of the violence will have manifested leading this to be a time of sorrow and weeping for many.

Opportunity is present and signaled by Grand Trines that connect to the South Node / Neptune:

We note that, while a true Kite is not present, signalling a strong opportunity, we have what has been called an “almost Kite” completed by Pluto.  Since Pluto is at the apex, we expect the “opportunity” to deal with death, police, intelligence agencies, or financial institutions (or some mix of those).

Finally, the presence of a Yod signals that an important decision must be made.  We choose one path or the other and should never look back.  If we look back, we will only see the rosy picture of the other path and not the hidden dangers that peppered that choice.

Jupiter Trine Pluto 2016-03-16

First, we encourage you to review the upcoming perfection of Jupiter Square Saturn.  Second, we encourage you to review Jupiter Trine Pluto 2015-10-11 and review your notes from that time period.

Next, we note we are discussing Jupiter trine Pluto, and we 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.

Notice that this aspect (Jupiter Trine Pluto) has been in play since January 23rd, will perfect again June 26th without losing any influence, and move out of influence July 29th.  It will come into influence again shortly before the election and continue past the United States Presidential Inauguration in 2017.

What does this configuration mean?  For some people, it brings tremendous opportunity, particularly when any planet (notably Moon or Sun) enters Taurus during this window to for a Grand Earth Trine (this happens several times, notably a period in late April / early May).  We also note that Jupiter Square Saturn may bring some shakeups, particularly in the financial markets, and we will see both “big winners” and “big losers” emerge from this.

First, we present chart of the perfection of Jupiter Trine Pluto filtered for trines:

Looks like TWO Grand Trines might be hidden amongst all those trines:

Jupiter Trine Pluto 2016-03-16 (Grand Trines)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

There are two grand trines!  We see two possible opportunities.  While we might can take advantage of both of them (maybe), is one better than the other?

Yes!  One of them is part of a Kite, a relatively rare aspect that is a sign of a superb opportunity:

Jupiter Trine Pluto 2016-03-16 (Kite)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The Astraea / Uranus / Saturn fire trine is the better opportunity, though Saturn tells us that we will have to work (and maybe make sacrifices, give up something), Uranus tells us to expect surprises and requires changes and innovations, and Astraea tells us that this will likely involve the law and legal system.

We can pick the Moon / Neptune / Juno trine, but that can involve deceit (Neptune) and being on the wrong end of betrayal (Juno).  That is challenging, but keep in mind that grand water trines (such as this one) tend to bring in money.  And, again, both opportunities MIGHT can be combined.

You will have to form alliances to get the job done.  The presence of a Hele tells us this:

Jupiter Trine Pluto 2016-03-16 (Hele)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Particularly with the grand fire trine / kite, you will need to form an alliance, or alliances, to get the job done.  This is a longer term pattern

Worth noting is the presence of overlapping Square Keys (interlaced Huber Learning Triangles) and the lessons they bring:

Jupiter Trine Pluto 2016-03-16 (Square Keys)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Among other things, this period (March 2016) seems to be about “learning lessons.”

Finally, overlapping Focused Yods tell us you can achieve the focus needed to “get things done” but you must make a decision, foregoing an option and choosing one to focus upon.  Push through until you complete the task or project or at least make it to the most important milestone.

We show the (same) chart, filtered for Focused Yods:

Jupiter Trine Pluto 2016-03-16 (Focused Yod)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Wondering when you will see this aspect again (or have seen it before)?   (It is comparatively rare.  After June, we will not see it again until 2024.)

Friday, January 22nd 2016

Friday is complex.  Mercury conjoins Pluto (another revisiting similar to Wednesday, the retrograde Mercury repeating the December aspect).  Not only does that resurrect important issues that presented themselves just before Christmas in 2015, but we revisit it AGAIN in a few days on January 29th.  Chances are good that the issues involve, on one hand, communications or transportation (and revisiting some things left undone) and, on the other hand, finances, taxes, “other people’s money,” police, intelligence agencies, drugs, poisons, or locations underground (such as caves and sewers).  You can bet that the issues in Flint, Michigan are not yet resovled and will WORSEN.

By itself, the Mercury/Pluto aspect would be enough to keep you very busy (if not make you very angry), but then the Moon (with the Grand Water Trine from yesterday starting to dissolve) opposes both Mercury and Pluto followed by a square to Uranus creating a T-Square.  You will feel at least an urge, if not a panic, to “get things done.”

Keep in mind the month long Thor’s Hammer is still in play, so mind your temper and watch for dangerous people, places, and things.

Tomorrow we have the Aquarian Full Moon of 2016 (Moon in Leo and Sun in Aquarius).  Leo and Aquarius will feel this.  So will Aries and Sagittarius (trine to Leo) and Gemini and Libra (trine to Aquarius).  (For these signs, this FM should be mostly benevolent.)  And Taurus and Scorpio (square to both Leo and Aquarius) will also feel it.  (For Taurus and Scorpio, a call to action and possible anger or rash responses.)


Astrological Patterns for Hillary Rodham Clinton

Astrological Patterns for Hillary Rodham Clinton: A Natal Chart Analysis

First, let me state my position: I am neither particularly a HRC fan or detractor.  I agree with her on some issues (diplomacy) and (vehemently) disagree with her on other issues (gun control).  So, as much as possible, I will make this a neutral analysis and try to be fair.  (AND I think I am capable of doing that.)

This is a complex chart with many patterns, something this is not true of all birth charts.  We list the patterns in groups:

1.  Hele patterns (multiple): Hillary tends to polarize people into strong allegiances that last over time

2. Rosetta patterns (multiple): Hillary also forms many temporary allegiances that can be characterized as treacherous at times (both for and against her)

3. Mystic Rectangle: Perhaps her defining pattern.  It highlights (1) just how much Bill’s betrayal (the Lewinsky scandal) bothered her and (2) her ongoing interest in healthcare issues.  The Mystic Rectangle tends to be a rather rare pattern.

4.  Kites and Grand Trines (multiple): she has more “luck” than anyone can imagine.  Maybe she should just play the lotto and retire.  Then again, maybe American politics IS the lotto.

5.  Grand Cross: it gives her the energy to do an AMAZING amount of work, but it also leads to significant conflict with others.  Like the Mystic Rectangle, the Grand Cross is a relatively rare pattern.

We will show her natal chart repeatedly, but each time it will be filtered for different patterns:

First, we show the Hele patterns (when two or more are interlaced, we call this a “Hele Key”):

Hillary Rodham Clinton (Hele Key)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

These patterns emphasize her ability to (1) form long term allegiances at the price of (2) polarizing people.  If you are truly her friend, she will stick by you through thick and thin.  But, it can be difficult to know whether or not your are truly her friend (only she really knows), and if you betray her there will be HELL TO PAY.

Here is her natal chart filtered for the Rosetta pattern (MANY of these; arguably a “Rosetta Key”):

Hillary Rodham Clinton (Rosetta)

[Click to Enlarge]

The are short term allegiances that frequently sour and can turn to treachery.  It does not mean that SHE is treacherous, but it does mean that someone takes advantage of someone eventually.  She likely becomes skilled at becoming the winner in these conflicts over the course of her lifetime, especially given her other patterns (notably the Kites).  I count at least FOUR of these in play.  (That is, by itself, unusual.)  If you interact with her, then the big question becomes this one: is this a temporary allegiance (Rosetta) or a true long term alliance (Hele)?

Mystic Rectangle: we think that of all the patterns present, this one defines her (but the Grand Cross is a close second):

Hillary Rodham Clinton (Mystic Rectangle)

[Click to Enlarge]

We note the four planets involved: (1) Sun in Scorpio (12th House); (2) Ceres in Taurus (6th House); (3) Juno in Sagittarius (2nd House); and (4) Hygeia in Cancer (8th House).  Interpretations: (1) Sun in Scorpio in 12th: she is very powerful at working behind the scenes.  Can she be a President and still do this? (2) Ceres in Taurus in 6th: economic woes (feast and famine); will this translate to the same pattern for the nation (BIG ups and downs!); (3) Juno in Sadge in 2nd: the Betrayed Wife of the Philandering Husband (yep, that really is who Juno is!); she was wounded by Bill far more than she will ever publicly admit; it was a BIG deal to her!  (4) Hygeia in 8th: She wants healthcare as an issue, but the 8th is tricky.  Maybe as a Scorpio she can pull it off.  But she better be careful about trying to cut the pay of nurses again.  In all fairness, I think she recognized her error and has made amends for it.

Juno in Sadge might be the most important planet for her as a person rather than a politician.  She is far more of a devoted wife and mother than she will ever let the public know.  This is because, as a Scorpio, she is afraid it might be seen as weakness.  But that Piscean Moon cares DEEPLY for her husband and daughter.  Truth be told, we will never know quite what she has gone through for them.

Hillary might can make the changes in healthcare that Obama has been trying to do if she is elected.  No doubt about it, except for the diplomacy issues (Middle East et al), healthcare *IS* her priority.

Kites and Grand Trines: again, I wish I had so many of these.  So do you.  That’s because ALMOST NO ONE has a chart that looks like this.  Kites tend to be “opportunity” and “luck.”  They are amplified Grand Trines.  She is almost drowning in them.

Hillary Rodham Clinton (Kites)

[Click to Enlarge]

I see at least three, but arguably four are present.  FOUR kites in a natal chart?  To speak in the vernacular: “ya gotta be kidding.”  Again, she could probably just play the lotto (repeatedly) and retire.  First house Jupiter confirms this.  But, the way she is configured, she would never do that.  That is particularly true with the Grand Cross.

Here are the Grand Trines:

Hillary Rodham Clinton (GrandTrines)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

I count five (5) GT’s, and that means that FIVE Kites COULD be present.  Wow!  What else to say?  But GT’s can make a person lazy.  That would be true unless you have a T-Square or (even more powerful) a Grand Cross in the chart.  She DOES have a Grand Cross (and, like the Mystic Rectangle, these are comparatively RARE):

Hillary Rodham Clinton (GrandCross)

[Click to Enlarge]

The Grand Cross is her other “defining pattern,” second only to the Mystic Cross.  The Sun/Ceres opposition shows again, emphasizing the feast/famine issue in her life.  But, perhaps more interesting is the Astraea / Vesta opposition.  Justice opposite Tradition?  That is what she has, and it shows that Social Justice is, and always has been, a core issue in her life.  (I would say THE core issue, but we know from earlier that healthcare is at least as important as this one, and her family is most important of all.)

T-Squares: these are really almost superfluous after the Grand Cross, but we present them anyway to point out that she has an amazing amount of “energy”:

Hillary Rodham Clinton (T-Squares)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Personally, I think she should recruit Al Gore to re-enter politics.

Finally, we present the chart in “Beginner” format with aspects with tightest orbs emphasized.  We note the Mercury square Saturn is particularly important with her (that says she has a remarkable attention to detail and will not tolerate anyone near her being “sloppy”), Mars / Pluto conjunction near Midheaven (she could either be warlike or somehow provoke war), and finally, the Mercury / Saturn / Moon Huber Learning Triangle (an HLT3) which shows, again, that she is willing to work to “earn” her “luck.”

Hillary Rodham Clinton (Beginner)

[Click to Enlarge]

Hillary Rodham Clinton (HLT3)

[Click to Enlarge]


This is meant to be a neutral review.  So, let’s be clear: if you are her enemy, chances are good she will destroy you.  She can be quite merciless.  And, frequently, people do not know where they stand with her.  She can be confusing (Scorpio/Pisces).  But, overall, she is benevolent and has good intent.  More than most others, she can effect real change in the healthcare system and with regard to social justice.  (Just leave our guns alone!)

It is possible she may be associated with a (big) war.

On that issue, let me say this: she is not a person to provoke a war by herself.  However, the people she chooses to surround herself with, and the allegiances that she forms, may lead to a situation in which no other meaningful choice exists.

This is a very good chart, and it would be a particularly powerful chart for a politician (as she is) or a top trial attorney or <smile> maybe even a lotto player.


New Moon November 2014

November 12, 2014 at 12:47 am | Posted in 2014-Lunations, Astrology, Lunations, Patterns | 1 Comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Here is the New Moon chart for November 2014.  At 0 degrees Sagittarius, this NM makes a statement (and it precedes the even stronger statement by the Capricorn NM at the Winter’s Solstice this year).  Here is the basic chart:

New Moon 2014-11-22 (Beginner)

[Click to Enlarge]

We will leave the discussion of the significance of the NM at 0 degrees Sadge to others and focus on the patterns of aspects instead.

First, if one includes the asteroid Hygeia (health, healing, and healthcare) and the North Node (not a planet but an indicator of “karma” or “work to be done”), the continuing Uranus/Pluto square forms a grand cross (as discussed in an earlier post).  We will not duplicate that post here but instead note that a great deal of “tension” to “get things done” will be felt at this time by many.  Key issues will include unexpected events (Uranus) or hopefully insights regarding healing (Hygeia) and drugs or medications (Pluto, sometimes) and possibly some work that needs to be done involving the relationships between certain people.  (Who?  Only you, dear reader, can answer that based on your situation!)

Here is the same chart, but reduced to emphasize the grand cross in play:

New Moon 2014-11-22 (Beginner, Grand Cross)

[Click to Enlarge]

Also mentioned previously are the grand trines in play (again, using asteroids), though now they are greatly reduced from when the Moon was in Cancer.  Opportunities are still available, but the window is not as strong as earlier.

New Moon 2014-11-22 (Beginner, Trines)

[Click to Enlarge]

Tying these two sets of patterns together, we have two “almost” kites:

New Moon 2014-11-22 (Kite, Almost, 1)

[Click to Enlarge]New Moon 2014-11-22 (Kite, Almost, 2)

[Click to Enlarge]

For someone “willing to do the work,” the payoff can be significant!

We also see the Thor’s Hammer (God’s Fist) pattern.  Actually, we see TWO of them, which we call a “Thor’s Hammer Key.”  (We note that all of these use asteroids.  Neither is composed entirely of major planets.)

Some will feel urgency to take action, and this may be rash action that might include violence.  Some things might go “boom.”

Looking for a “more intuitive” and “less technical” approach?  Try this video:

Once you have watched that video, re-read our analysis and see if it makes more sense!

If nothing else makes sense, then try this: TEST the “News Year’s Resolutions” you have planned for 2015 to see WHAT WORKS starting with this New Moon.  Avoid that same old cycle of unrealistic high hopes on January 1st followed by quitting on the third Monday in January (aka “Blue Monday”).  This is your chance to do something different this year!

And if you are wanting to QUIT something (e.g. smoking), you will want to start “quitting” during the preceding period when the Moon is in Scorpio, especially on the evening of November 21st.  (Dark of the Moon.)

If you are quitting smoking (or anything similar), go park yourself somewhere SAFE and AWAY from your usual environment for (a minimum of) three days (until the Moon is in Capricorn or beyond).  (Instructions only applicable to NM of November 22nd; other NM’s will have different approaches.  If you are trying to stop drugs or alcohol then you may need a medical detox.  Don’t do anything dangerous!)

Moon in Cancer in November of 2014: T-Squares and Grand Trines

November 9, 2014 at 11:45 am | Posted in 2014, Astrology, Patterns | 2 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

The Moon in Cancer in November of 2014 creates a series of interesting (and contradictory!) patterns.  On one hand, Moon will join with Uranus and Pluto (in the well known and often discussed Uranus/Pluto square pattern) to form a T-Square.  On the other hand, the Moon will join with Mars and Neptune to form a Grand Trine (Grand Water Trine).  The first causes conflict and energizes people to “take action” while the second tends to be gentler and more relaxed (and sometimes an opportunity to make a quite a bit of money).

We we examine the T-Square:

November 10th T-Squares


[Click to Enlarge]

Moments of greatest tension occur when (1) Moon opposes Pluto, (2) Moon squares Uranus, and (3) Moon conjoins Hygeia (an asteroid governing health and health issues).  If one counts the node (a point and not an actual body), then one might argue this is an (ongoing) grand cross.

Ordinarily, we would describe this period as being either “energetic” or “challenging” depending on how you use (or flow through) the energy.  But a grand trine (a grand water trine) is in play as well!  This pattern actually begins on November 9th (as we are writing the second part of this entry) and concludes later on the 10th.

Grand Water Trine 2014-10-09

[Click to Enlarge]

Someone, maybe several someones, will see an incredibly opportunity during this period and convert it into some serious money.  We note, also, that if one chooses to include Vesta, that a Grand Fire Trine is ALSO operative with Uranus in Aries, Jupiter in Leo, and Vesta in Sagittarius.  (Wow!)  This video shows how STRONG these relationships are:

If you have been looking for a window to “get things done,” then this window of time is it!  While most signs benefit during this period, Scorpios benefit most.

Kite of January 5, 2014

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

A window of opportunity will open for some on January 5th.  In particular, a Kite will occur:

Kite of Jan 5 1-3-2014 12-59-16 AM[Click to Enlarge]

A kite is a kind of a super-charged Grand Trine, and this one taps the Grand Water Trine of 2013 which continues to persist into 2014 (although it will begin breaking up).  This particular kite is stronger than many (which have the Moon somewhere in them which makes them comparatively unstable).  With the Sun in opposition to Jupiter, some will overspend, overeat, and overdo.  This will be to their detriment.  But others will greatly benefit during this period, particularly the prudent people who can focus themselves appropriately.  (With the Sun in Capricorn, the key to harvesting the beneficial energy of this event is self-discipline.)

Here is the U.S. Map.  Based on this map, I would not be surprised to see this energy manifest as a winter storm (with those who have properly prepared benefiting from their preparations).  Since Hercules is here (as I write this), I have to wonder if this means another storm will be coming behind Hercules?  (If so, it looks like the Rocky Mountains may be hit very hard.)

Here is the chart for the Spring 2013 Equinox (Vernal Equinox 2013, The First Day of Spring, March 20, 2013):

Vernal Equinox Spring 2013 1-18-2013 11-24-01 PM

[Click Image to Enlarge]

A grand water trine is present in this chart, with the Moon in its home in Cancer, Saturn in Scorpio, and the following four planets in Pisces: Neptune, Mercury, Chiron, and Venus.  For the “first day of Spring,” we can safely say that water is emphasized.  (Let us hope it brings nuturing rains but not floods.)

Mars perfects a conjunction to Uranus soon after the Equinox, and both are applying to squares to Pluto in Capricorn.  Both are applying to sextile Jupiter, and Jupiter is apply to quincunx Pluto.  This is an “energetic” (and possibly violent) time.

We suspect that the events of this time are an important prelude to the Grand Water Trine of July 2013.  (Also, to compare the Vernal Equinox of 2012, click here.)

Here are the midpoint trees for the Vernal Equinox of 2013:

Kumar’s Chart

Reader Kumar has requested a chart.  Here it is:

Kumar (Final) 1-11-2013 12-14-39 PM

[Click to Enlarge]

In our analysis, we see that Kumar has Venus near midheaven with Vesta and Mars nearby.  This is generally a favorable configuration, and it also suggests that Kumar would benefit greatly from study in the univeristy, travel, or both.  Kumar may also proper in settings involving legal issues.  But, with Mars in the 29th degree of Pisces, he has to be careful to avoid engaging in dishonest or criminal activities.  He will face temptations.

With Moon in Cancer in the first house, women are particularly important to Kumar as are all things “water.”  He is a solar pisces and has a water grand trine in his chart.  He is capable of rising from humble beginnings to significant wealth if he is willing to work.  His Saturn is in Scorpio (the other piece of the grand trine, besides Moon & Sun), and he is still likely feeling the aftershocks associated with the Saturn return process.  We suspect that he recently had a major life change: a marriage, divorce, birth of child, or possibly a death of close relative.  He may have made a major career shift.

Given that he has a natal grand water trine, the grand water trine of this summer is of particular importance to him.  The decisions and actions he makes this year will affect his life for many years to come.  If he can avoid dishonesty / criminality, then he can become very prosperous.  He also needs to pick his friends and associates with great discretion.  (The temptation to “fall in with the wrong crowd” is a great danger to him.)

This year Saturn trines Neptune.  With a 28 year orbit, Saturn trine Neptune happens in two windows.  In roughly 8 to 10 years, Saturn will conjoin Neptune, the next set of trines will happen about 10 years after that.  (So, these are comparatively rare events, depending on your perspective.)

February 9, 2013

We note that the New Moon of February 10th started the Chinese Year of the Black Water Snake.  While interpretations vary, some describe anything to do with the Black Water Snake as being associated with disaster.

(To mix metaphors a bit, Native American lore tends to hold the Snake as an agent of transformation.  Here is one story about the Snake.  We note that, in Western Astrology, the Snake is usually considered the low form of Scorpio.  (The other forms are: Scorpion, Hawk, Eagle, and The Phoenix.  Some people merge the Hawk and Eagle, not distinguishing that the Eagle is a higher form of the Hawk.  To be sure, Eagles can be just as scary as snakes and scorpions.)

We like this commentary on the upcoming Grand Water Trine this summer.

January 6, 2013

A series of remarkable alignments happen this year.  We think that the peak moment for the energy of these alignments is shown in this next chart, noting that we question the idea of any particular single “point” as being the most important, particularly in a series of large scale alignment such as the family that contains this one.  The exact aspect in this chart is Moon Trine Jupiter, but we picked it because it is within 24 hours of Jupiter Trine Neptune, which only occurs once in this series.

Grand Trine Culminates 1-6-2013 12-59-25 AM

Will be interesting to see what comes to pass during this window.  We are at least a little suspicious that the key issue at this time will be WATER.  (Will the drought in some parts of the world deepen this summer?)

In the Daily Planetary Guide, Pam Ciampi mentions an alignment this summer known as a “Grand Sextile.”   We will update this entry at a later date to address the Grand Sextile, also called a “Star of David.”

Here is the U.S. Map for this chart (Moon Trine Jupiter).  We note a Venus line through the center of the U.S.  It passes near San Antonio and, further south, Mexico City.  Other lines that touch the continental U.S. include the Mars line near Miami, the Chiron line through Idaho, Utah, & Arizona, and the Neptune (IC) line through Los Angeles.

I see that I am already getting traffic looking for information about the Grand Water Trine (or Grand Trine in Water) in July of 2013.  It is probably the most important pattern of 2013, and it heralds important opportunities for change.  It is exact on July 17, 2013.  And, in the months to come, I will update this post (and likely add other posts referring to it).  The configuration involves Jupiter in Cancer, Saturn in Scorpio, and Neptune in Pluto.  I expect a world leader of major importance to be born (or possibly “show” themselves) this year.

Swan (aka Yol) and the Chiron return

August 31, 2012 at 2:21 pm | Posted in Astrology, Patterns | 2 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Reader Swan (also known as Yol) writes the following circa August 12th,


Thanks for your post. It definitely picked my curiosity and I hope you can help me out here, since my life has been quite a struggle for the past few years… I am a Gemini with both Moon and Ascendant in Scorpio (born 6/6/1960 at 17:30 in Mexico City, Mexico), and I wonder how Saturn moving into Scorpio will affect me? Thank you for your insight!!!

Four key points are noted on the resulting chart:

  1. Ascendant / Descendant are at the Algol point.  Specifically, she has “Algol setting” (at the point where the Sun sets).  This is the 7th house cusp, the 7th being associated with relationships (especially marriages and financial relationships) and “open enemies.”  In a word, her relationships tend to be “difficult.”  Necessarily, this means she has a scorpio ascendant and has likely had a lifetime of significant power struggles.
  2. She has Moon conjunct Neptune in the 12th, both in Scorpio.  People with a Scorpio moon tend to have strong convictions and strong emotions.  Often she has deep feelings that she does not want anyone to know about.  But, both Neptune and the 12th house are the “revealer” and, together, they often force her secrets into the open.  She may have had a lifetime forcing the secrets of others into the open.  If she is a counselor, then this can be benevolent.  In any case, she can be highly intuitive but wrestles with mistaken notions.  She has to double check every contract and every financial instrument.  Things are often not as they appear.
  3. She has both Jupiter and Saturn in the 2nd house.  She can make money, but she has to make an extra effort to hold onto it.  The money has a tendency to slip through her hands.
  4. The most important point: she has been going through her Chiron return.  Not discussed as much, this is similar to a Saturn return, comes about 50 years of age, and visits most people only once in a lifetime.  Her Chiron is part of her grand water trine (if you allow Chiron to do such things), and that profoundly affects her finances and emotional relationships.  Given her Moon and Neptune configuration, she may have a child or grandchild in need of financial assistance.  The situation is a difficult one that might involve drugs, alcohol, or some form of sickness.  In any case, she will have to take a hard look at her own wounds.  Her best way of healing herself will be in terms of helping others.  If she has any “bad karma” from the past, then this is the time to process it and move forward.

To answer her question: “Saturn’s movement into Scorpio will greatly affect you next year.  You should look back at your life 28 to 30 years ago.  What is more important for you, though, is to critically examine the effect that the Chiron return is having upon your life.”

Nefrit’s Chart

August 17, 2012 at 11:00 pm | Posted in Astrology | 18 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Reader Nefrit has requested analysis of her natal chart.

Based on the data provided, here is the chart produced in Astrolog:

[click to enlarge]

Nefrit has her Sun in late Scorpio with her Moon in early Pisces; the two are 102 degrees apart,  They are trine by sign but not by degree.  Saturn will trine her Moon in 2013 but not contact her Sun until somewhat later (probably 2014).  She has experienced her first Saturn return and the associated transformation.  Saturn will continue to bring transformation, particularly as it conjuncts Venus and Uranus.  This happened early in her life as well, probably about age 8 to 10 years of age.  Something rather profound likely happened then, such as a divorce of parents, a move to a new city or country, or something else similarly profound.

Particularly interesting is her close relationship between the Sun and Ceres,  Ceres is representative of feast and famine.  Prior to the 20th century, when famine was common, Ceres had a different meaning.  It meant actual famine.  Today, it usually signifies a pattern of preoccupation with weight and weight loss.  Usually it signifies also a pattern of extreme diets followed by a the “rebound” effect of gaining the weight back plus new additional weight.  Nefrit will have to carefully guard against being ensnared by this or a similar pattern.  In a worst case scenario, it could signify an eating disorder such as bulimia.

Mercury, Juno, and Neptune are essentially conjunct near 15 Sagittarius.  Her communications are how she gets things done, but sometimes they are unclear.  Worst case either she or the other party engages in outright deceit.  In her original request, she asked about boyfriends and romance.  Based on this aspect, and her Sun/Moon position, we recommend that she favor partners with water sign Sun/Moon.  However, her current Gemini boyfriend can work.  The issue of communications is important in all relationships, but heightened for her.

Juno, of course, was the jealous wife of ever-philandering Jupiter.  Jupiter cheated on her almost constantly.  Nefrit would benefit from studying the mythology and stories of Juno and how to address those issues.

With a sensitive Pisces Moon, dishonest partners more deeply wound her than others.  The issue with Ceres (and weight / weight loss) compounds the problem.  Uranus and Venus are essentially conjunct, so she may have a predilection for what might be termed “unusual” relationships.  This could range from the May/December variety to GLBT to those that are truly “kinky.”  As I watch Craig Ferguson while I write this, I hear the announcer mentioned “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Sex Toys.”  Is that a coincidence?
We note that the Moon in Pisces and Jupiter in Cancer trine the Venus / Uranus duo; this forms a grand water trine making this combination particularly important in her chart.  The Venus / Uranus duo tend to affect both her Moon (her deep internal self) and her career (Jupiter).  Despite a preference for “creative romances,” we suspect that she has a deep yearning for a family (Jupiter in Cancer).  If that is not feasible, she will tend to work in areas that involve water or fluids (shipping by sea, the oil industry) or working with families (possibly social work).

Of course, we are not saying any of this is necessarily “true” in the form described.  Planetary positions and aspects can be expressed in a large variety of ways.  These are just the most obvious interpretations.

We invite her response and clarifications.
