We present these together even thought the August 31st Square Key occurs after the Full Moon of August 29th (and therefore may represent a different set of “lessons”).  (We say “lessons” because, as we have said before, Square Keys are really interlaced Huber Learning Triangles.)

We present them in reverse order, starting with the Square Key of August 31st:

2015-08-31 Square Key

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This Square Key also requires use of the Node, specifically the South Node.  It involves a lesson that results from “taking the easy way out” or, alternatively “doing things the way we have always done them.”  The crowed that tends to say “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” will feel this lesson extra strongly.  They may even be so foolish as to say, after experiencing the lesson, “it ain’t broke.”  But, it is.

Chances are good that the lessons of August 31st will involve police or intelligence agencies (or death or taxes, Pluto) along with innovations, particularly military innovations (Pallas).  With the school year starting, this could easily involve police, particularly undercover police operations, in educational settings.

Next, we present the Square Key of August 24th:

2015-08-24 Square Key

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Since this Square Key (SK) also involves the South Node, it may be setting the stage for the SK of August 31st  We note that it involves the Sun, Moon, and Saturn as well as the South Node.  The “lights” (Sun and Moon) tell is that this involves basic issues that affect everyone, and Saturn is about “hard work” and focusing on “the basics.”  Saturn can also be academics and testing in particularly.  Some say that Saturn and the South Node are different faces of the same thing (often “doing things the way we have always done them”).  Again, we think that this could be related to issues that specifically address the beginning of the school year.

Finally, we present the Square Key of August 23, the day the Sun touches Regulus:

2015-08-23 Square Key

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Moon, Astraea, Chiron, and Uranus (Prometheus) are involved.  This is likely a different set of issues from the other two SK’s.  The key issues here involve sensitive personal issues (the Moon), law and the legal system (Astraea), health, healing, and teaching (Chiron), and surprises, insights, and innovations (Uranus).  This sets the stage for some people having critically important lessons (and insights) that will empower (Regulus) them to rebel (Uranus) later against those who argue for “doing things the way we have always done them.”

Mercury Opposite Chiron 2015-08-20 (Updated Aug 19th)

We have been recommending action during this period, but on this day you may need to mend fences.  Mercury opposes Chiron and quincunxes Uranus.  A subtle but very powerful Learning Triangle (we are unsure whether or not it is properly a “Huber” Learning Triangle) will color the day (and affect the few days before and after the perfection of the pattern).

Here is the chart, filtered for Mercury aspects:

2015-08-20 Mercury Opposite Chiron

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Note that Chiron is precisely in aspect with Uranus (Semi-Sextile) in addition to both in aspect to Mercury.  Note that Moon enters Scorpio almost exactly at time of perfection of Mercury Opposite Chiron.  This is not without impact as the Moon (briefly) forms a 5th harmonic pattern (one we will call a “Quintile Triangle”) with Pluto in Qunitle aspect on one leg (of the triangle) and Hygeia in Qunitile aspect on the other leg (of the triangle).  Both Pluto and Hygeia are biquintile to each other.

Here is the chart, filtered for 5th Harmonic Aspects:

2015-08-20 Mercury Opposite Chiron (Quintile Triangle)

[Click to Enlarge]

We think that powerful breakthroughs in health care (and possibly health insurance) can be made on 8/19 and 8/20.  However, this is a particularly narrow window that will not likely extend to any other days.

We note that Bill Clinton’s Solar Return is near this time (0158 CDT on August 19th), and we would not be entirely surprised to see him emerge into the public spotlight again regarding these issues.

Full Moon (Blue Moon) 2015-07-31

Full Moon (Blue Moon) 2015-07-31:

What to start with?  The Heles that will polarize people and whip them into a frenzy or the Thor’s Hammers (God’s Fists) that foment an explosive anger that may lead us into violent (and regrettable) confrontations?

We will show the Hele patterns first:

2015-07-31 Full Moon (Blue Moon, Hele Patterns)

[Click to Enlarge]

Arguably, these overlapping Hele patterns (that vaguely resemble a Star of David) constitute a novel pattern of their own.  (Maybe a Hele Key?)  They are indicative of the polarization we see in many issues: Greece v. Euro, Rebel flag supporters v. The Empire (of Political Correctness), African Americans (and others, e.g. Bikers) v. The Police (not the band), Liberal Elites v. Conservative Mainstream (v. Libertarian), and other groups currently in conflict.  Polarization and conflict are in the air.

As much as I avoid conflict, I am irritated about the Confederate Flag issue.

But (as they say on late night television infomercials), WAIT, that’s not all.  We have Thor’s Hammers (aka God’s Fist) similarly in play in this Full Moon.  Leo / Aquarius SHOULD be benevolent, but maybe not this time.  Thor’s Hammer is particularly dangerous.

Here is the FM (Blue Moon) chart, filtered for the Thor’s Hammer patterns:

2015-07-31 Full Moon (Blue Moon, Thors Hammers)

[Click to Enlarge]

I do not know about you, but I see THREE Thor’s Hammer patterns here.  (Maybe a Thor’s Hammer Key?)  Everyone is mad at everyone?  If the recent New Moon did not do the trick, then this FM will.

Does this presage (more) riots?  “Things” are looking dicey.

As always in this situation, some people will profit.  The presence of Grand Trines tell us that:

2015-07-31 Full Moon (Blue Moon, Grand Trines)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We do not see any kites, so this is not a HUGE opportunity, but this grand fire trine(s) tends to favor warriors (but not so much the police who are water/Scorpio and have retrograde Saturn afflicting them).  Traditions (Vesta, Aries) are key issues here.

Other patterns are present in this FM.  One is a T-Square:

2015-07-31 Full Moon (Blue Moon, T-Square)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

To be sure, T-Squares tend to incite unrest at a minimum and “action” (conflict) frequently.  But, this T-Square is nearly overshadowed by the Thor’s Hammers mentioned previously.

Finally, this particular chart is full of Huber Learning Trinagles (HLTs).  To be sure, this FM is associated with so called “learning experiences.”  (Try not to get hurt or killed during those!)

Here are those versions of the chart:

Sun Square Uranus 2015-07-12: This square happens twice a year.  With Uranus in Aries, the Sun squares it once when it is in Cancer and once again in Capricorn.  This one follows almost a week after Sun opposite Pluto and it is part of the Uranus Square Pluto drama that has been playing out for several years.

Here is the chart, filtered for squares, oppositions, and t-squares:

2015-07-12 Sun Square Uranus (Squares)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

In terms of manifestations, this looks like part of the ongoing Greece / China / US / global financial meltdown that is currently in play.  We might see violence, riots, and possibly even explosions of some kind related to the current events.

A square key (essentially two interlocking Huber Learning Triangles, one a HLT1 and the other a HLT3) is also present and highlights an inconjunct (quincunx) between Pallas and Mars.  What might seem to be “bright ideas” may crash and burn offering us some “lessons” about how to do (or NOT do) things.

Here is the chart filtered for the Square Key:

2015-07-12 Sun Square Uranus (Square Key)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We also see a Yod present, indicating that a major decision faces us (both collectively and individually).  The decision is an odd one between taking the easy way out (South Node) and facing issues of feasting and famine (Ceres).  The core issue connecting these two paths is one of trust misplaced into betrayal.  (Maybe that is the basis for the financial markets problem.)

Here is the chart:

2015-07-12 Sun Square Uranus (Yod)

To be certain, we are living in tumultuous times, and Sunday is likely to be challenging.

We all know what Mars Trine Neptune means.  (OK, a fair number of you do not.)  It is the Slick Willie Teflon Traveling Salesman aspect of the guy that sells you something too good to be true and by the time you realize what has happened it is too late to ever get your money back.  For politicians, Mars-Neptune can be a gift in their birth chart.

This aspect happens roughly twice in a two year period, and it is happening again on July 8, 2015.  This particular edition of that aspect is associated with a Rosetta formation (unstable alliances that just do not last) that contains (1) the South Node (taking the easy way out, repeating the same mistakes then regretting them later) and (2) Juno (the jealous, angry, and betrayed wife) among others.  The message is loud and clear.

So, before you make the mistake, listen to this: WE TOLD YOU SO!

Here is the chart, filtered for the Rosetta:

2015-07-08 Mars Trine Neptune (Rosetta)

[Click to Enlarge]

We note, also, that a Huber Learning Triangle (specifically a HLT 3 by Solar Fire’s terminology) is ALSO connected to the South Node (taking the easy way out) as well as Saturn (tests and difficulties) in Scorpio (power, control, and domination) as well as Juno (issues of betrayal):

2015-07-08 Mars Trine Neptune (HLT 3)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Listen to the patter if you will, and enjoy the show.  But, again, if you buy into the product or sign on the dotted line for the “commitment,” remember that WE TOLD YOU SO!  

Those who do not “learn the lesson” are doomed to repeat….

…repeating the same mistakes expecting different outcomes.

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

[Click Image to Enlarge]

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:

2015-06-23 Mercury Square Neptune Huber 1

[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!

Jupiter Trine Uranus June 22, 2015

Jupiter Trine Uranus is the “Lotto Winner” aspect, and it always comes with opportunities disguised as surprises and even sometimes “accidents.”  When the mold kills the bacteria colonies in your dishes, you can either grumble and throw them out having learned nothing or you can become world famous and save millions of lives by discovering penicillin.

Keep your eyes open and be ready to have your awareness lifted.

This chart is simply FULL of Grand Trines that GREATLY favor fire and air signs.  It is exact, and strongest, in the morning for the United States and afternoon for UK and Europe.  Here is the chart, filtered to show the GT’s:

2015-06-22 Jupiter Trine Uranus Grand Trines

[Click Image to Enlarge]

If you have been reading this blog long enough, or have the knowledge elsewhere, then you know that Yods (the Finger of God) are about a “fork in the road” and making decisions.  You can only choose one path and must forego the other.  We have a Yod present with this pattern:

2015-06-22 Jupiter Trine Uranus Yod

[Click to Enlarge]

With the Yod, some disappointment is always experienced with a given choice, and we long for the other path nostalgically later.  Just make certain you understand that, whichever path you choose, the other one had its own problems as well.

Finally, today’s patterns include Huber Learning Triangles.  You will learn “lessons” from these events.

Sun Sextile Jupiter June 8, 2015

June 7, 2015 at 6:44 pm | Posted in 2015, Astrology, Patterns, septile, septiles | 3 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Each year, typically once a year, the Sun will make a sextile aspect to Jupiter.  This means they are sixty degrees apart, exactly two signs.  (Some years this happens three times if Jupiter Retrograde becomes involved.)  Generally this is merely a pleasant and benevolent aspect for most people most of the time.

This year, however, a larger window of opportunity opens.  You may have recognized it during the Mystic Rectangle of June 7th (yesterday).  Today you can do something about it.  We urge caution with the Moon waning and Mercury Retrograde, but, even so, you just might be able to do something about it today.  (Be prepared for a few surprises along the way along with the need for a “re-do” or two as well.  But, if it is worth it, then do it.)

This window is built of Kites and Kite-like patterns.  Those are built with Grand Trines, and we present the Sun Sextile Jupiter chart with those patterns highlighted first:

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (Grand Trines)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sadge) particularly benefit at this time.  The Venus / Vesta / Saturn (Retrograde) configuration has huge promise but requires huge work and will definitely include the occasional “test” (setback).  “Things” will change when Saturn goes into Scorpio, and the going may get tough.  But, ultimately, this opportunity can be done if you stick with it.  A “traditional” approach is essential.

Fire signs also benefit from the Jupiter / Pallas / Uranus Grand Trine.  This is part of a Kite we will discuss soon.  Not as much work is required, but completely unlike the other opportunity it requires “out of the box” thinking (NOT traditional).  It is a huge project, and it might consume all of your resources.

Note that air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) can also benefit, but (if you are an air sign) the smart thing to do is to hitch a ride with either the most reliable fire sign you know (Venus / Vesta / Saturn) or the smartest fire sign you know (Jupiter / Pallas / Uranus).

Here is the same chart, but with the Kites emphasized:

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (Kites)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Note that, if you consider the Moon’s North Node (hard work), an air sign Kite is present as well.

We could stop here, and that could be enough.  But even more “kite-like” structures are present in the sky.  Although a bit redundant, we present those in the next two versions of the chart:

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (Kite, Almost (1))

[Click Image to Enlarge]

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (Kite, Almost (2))

[Click Image to Enlarge]

For at least some (possibly many), the focus of these opportunities are likely found in healing opportunities, as indicated by the Mars / Pallas / Chiron T-Square:

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (T-Square Mars, Pallas, Chiron)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Finally, did we mention the “setback” and the “re-do”?  You will face them if you choose the high road  and take the challenge.  These show in two Huber Learning Triangles:

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (Huber Learning 1)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (Huber Learning 3)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We present the 5th Harmonic aspects for those who use them (creatives: writers, poets, artists, etc.):

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (5th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The Moon / Venus BiQuintile especially favors those who work in tangible media such as sculptors.

Here is the 7th Harmonic (Septiles) version:

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (7th Harmonic)

Given the 7th Harmonic aspect between Jupiter (Leo, Direct) and Saturn (0 Sadge, Retrograde), we might see a little shakeup in the financial markets.  (i.e. Stock and Bond prices may become volatile.  Maybe a good time to “short”?)

Be aware that some of the work you do will have to occur after (1) Mercury goes Direct (fraught with its own perils) and (2) we have passed the New Moon.

May 3, 2015 Full Moon and more

We present the chart for the May 3, 2015 full moon (Scorpio / Taurus) noting a powerful T-Square with Jupiter in play: 2015-05-03 Full Moon

[Click to Enlarge]

This is one of the most complex FM’s to come along in some time.  It is also a potentially dangerous one.  Taurus can be heartless, and Scorpio is known to be cruel.  But, that’s just the tip of the iceberg here. In our review of patterns, we note the presence of two interlocking kites.  We believe that this is actually the identification of a new pattern, one we will call the Double Kite Key.  (More creative names for it may yet emerge.)  To be certain, it is a particularly powerful window of opportunity for some people: 2015-05-03 Full Moon (Double Kite Key)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The key to this pattern is Vesta, though nearby Neptune has something to say in a Yod that is also in play.  Vesta is all about traditions and home, but we suspect she is acting more like her sister Pallas here, teaching us about preparation to seize an opportunity (and then seizing it). The Full Moon is PART of this pattern, integral to the opportunities here.  The issue of safety is paramount in this case, so make certain to keep your doors locked and do what is necessary to stay safe. Here is the Yod that has Neptune at the apex: 2015-05-03 Full Moon (Yod)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The Yod represents a choice between work and play.  As is true with all yods, no matter which one you choose you will look back and wish you had taken the other path.  But, for now, the smartest path will be the one that involves a bit of hard work. A Thor’s Hammer (God’s Fist) is also in play.   Here it is:

2015-05-03 Full Moon (Thors Hammer)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The Thor’s Hammer gives us energy and simultaneously reminds us to focus rather than explode. Polarization on issues is likely due to a Hele (which tends to form stable alliances) but treachery could be in play due to a Rosetta (which tends to form alliances that do not last).  You can find friends to help you accomplish your goals, but you must choose well.  A wrong choice could result in an unpleasant surprise. Here is the Hele:

2015-05-03 Full Moon (Hele)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Here is the Rosetta:

2015-05-03 Full Moon (Rosetta)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Huber Learning Triangles are also present, and they are so abundant here that interpretation is difficult.  We think, again, that new patterns can be identified (and named) here and are worthy of note: Here are the HLT 1’s:

2015-05-03 Full Moon (Huber Learning Triangle 1)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Does a larger pattern connect these?  We think it might, but leave that interpretation open the the reader.  These two HLT’s are connected, we might mention, by the Yod mentioned earlier. Here are the HLT 2’s:

2015-05-03 Full Moon (Huber Learning Triangle 2)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Here are the HLT 3’s: 2015-05-03 Full Moon (HLT 3 Key)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We see three HLT 3’s here, and at least two of the three are interlocking (by the yod mentioned earlier) and could represent a larger pattern (a HLT 3 key?). We suspect anyone born on (or near) this FM may have rather remarkable problem solving abilities (including Royal Babies).  Don’t be surprised if this princess becomes a queen someday. Jupiter (in Leo) is highly influential here. We present the HLT 4’s:

2015-05-03 Full Moon (Huber Learning Triangle 4)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

All kites (including the ones mentioned earlier) include a grand trine.  Actually, two are present in this FM (one water and one air, if you count the North Node), and we present them here as our final chart in this post: 2015-05-03 Full Moon (Grand Trines)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

So, prepare for the opportunities, don’t lose your temper (and be alert for those who might), honor your traditions, and seize the opportunity when you see it.  And be prepared to learn, to learn much, from these turns of events.

Here are alternative interpretations:

We note that this is also Wesak.  See, also: Wikipedia entry for Wesak.

Huber Learning Trinagle April 22 to May 11, 2015i

April 24, 2015 at 8:52 pm | Posted in 2015, Astrology, Patterns, Predictions | 3 Comments

Solar Fire 8’s electional search identifies a “Huber Learning Triangle 2” that is in play from April 22 to May 11, 2015.  This pattern involves Pluto, Uranus, and Mars, and we think that this may bring us some difficult “lessons” in this period involving power and violence:

Huber Learning Triangle 2 April 22

[Click Image to Enlarge]

On the more positive side, this pattern may give some of us the focus and energy to accomplish some important project.  Just remember the lesson of the magic genie: make certain what you ask for is what you really want!

This will tend to affect Capricorn (especially early January), Aries (especially near April 10th), and Taurus (near May 5th) the most.  Opposite points in Cancer (near July 1), Libra (near October 1), and Scorpio (near November 3rd) will also feel this more than others.

Maybe the best explanation of what these lessons are about might be Whole Astrology’s recent description of Capricorn.

If you do not keep a journal of some kind, then this might be a good time to start.  Make detailed notes from April 22 through May 11th and then put them in some place where you will come back to them, maybe at the time of your New Year’s Resolutions or a year from now.  What lessons did you learn from this period?

If your journal is digital, make certain to include pictures and video from this period.

Full Moon November 2014

Here is the basic chart for the Full Moon of November 2014:

Full Moon November 2014 (Beginners)

[Click to Enlarge]

We see some indication that we may be entering a period of austerity (or a cold winter?) as Venus is between the Sun and Saturn (all in Scorpio) with Mars applying to conjoin Saturn (both in Capricorn).  Saturn and Pluto continue in mutual reception, as has been true since 2012.  Will be interesting to see what the financial markets do.  We note that Mars and Vesta are semi-octile, and that might be the most important aspect during this full moon.  (More discussion on this below after the Modulus Sort Strips.)  We also note a Huber triangle involving Sun / Moon / Chiron (as shown in the next version of the chart).

Full Moon November 2014 (Huber)

[Click to Enlarge]

Similarly important, Astraea (at 29 Pisces) is semi-square the Moon and Sesquisquare the Sun (in a pattern we have not seen named before but similar to a T-Square or arguably the Huber triangle).  (This is all about some injustice that has NOT been resolved!)

Here is an horary version of that same chart data:

Full Moon November 2014 (Horary)

[Click to Enlarge]

One thing that benefits this full moon is that none of the planets are peregrine.  The arabic parts generally look favorable as well.

Here is last year’s November Scorpio / Taurus full moon.

Here are the midpoint trees for those interested in midpoints:

Full Moon November 2014 (Midpoint Trees)

[Click to Enlarge]

We see a very busy group of midpoint trees.  Here is the Modulus Sort strips, another way to identify relationships that may not otherwise be entirely obvious:

Full Moon November 2014 (Modulus Sort Strips)


[Click to Enlarge]

Notice that the last strip, the 22.5 strip, shows Vesta/Mars next to each other.  This means that they are “semi-octile” with is a 16th Harmonic aspect.  But, what does that mean?  Discussions abound, and opinions vary.

My interpretation is that the semi-octile is a kind of “irritation,” a bit like the persistent annoyance of a pebble in the shoe that ultimately must be addressed.

With Vesta/Mars the two bodies joined by semi-octile, we suspect some people may be either quite irritable or outright enraged (possibly by some event near the FM).  We will see some of this after the elections in the U.S., but they not a cause of the problem (the elections reflect other underlying problems).  Any polarization that occurred with the Rosettas of October will more clearly emerge at this time.  Remember, also, that on a much large scale we are choosing (collectively and individually) one of two major forks in the road (i.e. The Grand Yod).

Full Moon November 2014 (Modulus Sort Strips Mars Vesta) 2

[Click to Enlarge]

We have indicated Mars/ Vesta in the 22.5 strip in this last graphic using deep red.  (The 22.5 strip is the last in the series.)  Two strips above it, the fourth in the series, is the 45 degree strip.  Here, at the end, we see Sun / Moon / Astraea as noted using light blue.  As mentioned before, this is about an injustice that is unresolved.  Justice must be had here.  Given the upcoming Thor’s Hammer days circa November 14/15, we shudder to think of what may happen if whatever coverup(s) have been going on are not exposed in a peaceful manner.

We also identify four (4) themes that emerge from four (4) Triseptiles during this period.  (“Triseptiles” are higher order aspects that are difficult to interpret; those who do attempt to interpret them claim that they are “karmic” in nature.)

1.  Jupiter BISeptile Ceres (and Ceres square Neptune): This is a large, higher order set of issues involving education and law (Jupiter), the food supply (Ceres), and healthcare & drugs (Neptune).  Jupiter in Leo indicates that we can expect dramatic changes, Ceres in Sadge strengthens Jupiter’s role, and Neptune introduces a sense of urgency and annoyance as the solutions dissolve into failures (and lessons for better solutions in the future).

The full moon itself (Moon opposes Sun) is part of a Huber triangle involving Chiron (the “wounded healer,” another indicator of education and healthcare issues).  This Sun / Moon / Chiron triangle will almost certainly activate the Jupiter / Ceres / Neptune pattern on a mundane level.  (Maybe part of the key to dealing with the Ebola problem will involve education of healthcare workers?)

2.  Juno BiSeptile Saturn: Issues and trust and betrayal collide with policies that may be too “bare bones” to protect those that should be protected.  Change becomes necessary.

3.  Pallas TriSeptile Uranus: in the low form, surprise attacks.  In the high form, insights that result in breakthroughs, particularly technological breakthroughs.  Given the nature of Pallas, some of these may be military in nature and the information not available to the public.

4.  Vesta BiSeptile Astraea: Similar in many ways to #3.  A push to address injustices boils to the surface.  The Vesta / Mars semi-octile discussed earlier ties into this and is the “pebble in the shoe” that heightens the pressure to obtain justice and redress the wrongs.

Here is the same full moon chart, but displaying specifically the TriSeptiles:

We note that the U.S. map is unusually busy.  The area where Montana and South Dakota meet is highly activated.  (Will we see a surprise winter storm or other unusual weather there?)

Evie’s First Saturn Return

Reader Evie asks:

HI, I will be going through my 1st Saturn Return in October, but I feel like I’m already starting to feel it now. . Is that normal?

[this is followed by more dialog elsewhere]

Here is the natal chart for Evie:

We see immediately that she is a Solar Aries with a Cancerian Moon.  We suspect that she is a strong person; the leadership of her Aries Sun both augmented and trumphed by her Cancerian Moon.  She is a leader (or has great capacity to be one), but sometimes she seems whimsical to those who surround her and follow her.

Saturn’s entry into Scorpio will produce a conjunction of transiting Saturn to natal Pluto.  No doubt about it, this will bring a shakeup that sets the stage for the conjunction of transiting Saturn with natal Saturn, the Saturn Return.  Saturn will also oppose Venus and inconjunct Pallas at this time, activating a triangle present in the natal chart.

Homework for Evie is to research Huber, “Learning Triangles,” and the nature of these three planets (Saturn, Venus, & Pallas) and the types of lessons wait for her.


Stellia of March 25, 2012

PAT shows an interesting configuration of two pair of stellia for March 25th. One stellium is part of a grand trine involving Mars and Pluto. The stellium of 3 includes Moon, Jupiter, & Venus (all tend to be considered benefic). Mars and Pluto are highly malefic. What can this mean?

At this time, Sun, Mercury (retrograde) and Uranus form a stellium of 3, and they are part of a “Huber Learning Triangle” with Pluto square to the group and Mars inconjunct (quincunx). Again, what can this mean? And, though each of the stellia are not directly connected, both are connected by their relationships to Mars and Pluto.

Would love to hear from other astrologers regarding how to interpret this (preferably BEFORE the date has passed).

Exploring further, we find interesting a chart for Moon Trine Pluto on March 25th (earlier than the PAT chart) at about Noon (Plano time).  (The remainder of the analysis is done using SolarFire.)

If all these patterns are going to lead to something interesting, this chart could narrow down when (and where).  Using this chart as a basis, here are a few maps.  (Caveat: these maps are based on Moon Trine Pluto.  The entire set of patterns is very complex, and this pick of chart to base the maps upon could be totally wrong.  This is just a “best guess.”)

United States Map

The U.S. map is interesting.  California (all of it) is affected by a node (karma) line.  Texas, particularly San Antonio, and Mexico City are affected by a Mars (violence) line.  (Sigh, that’s MY neighborhood!)  And, most interesting of all, the corridor from New York to Boston is covered by two lines: the lines of the Sun and Uranus (part of the stellium with Mercury).  Finally, a southern part of South Carolina, not too far from Atlanta, has an intersection of a Mercury and Pluto line.

Europe and the United Kingdom

The map for the UK and Europe does not show any lines on the UK at the moment of this particular aspect.  Most of Western Europe appears unaffected, except Munich which could expected some surprises.  A Uranus line (descendant) affects Stockholm.  Generally, Eastern Europe is influenced by this time by Uranus, Sun, and Pluto.  Frankly, these bring difficulty.  Warsaw, Krakow, and Sarajevo look like they might experience periods of unrest.

The cross of Mars (violence) and the Node (karma) in Sri Lanka is hard to miss.  Maybe this will just be a good time to be an athlete there, but there could be some unrest.

The region from east of Tehran to Northwestern India, including Pakistan, appears to benefit from this period.  Neptune touches Delhi, and both Neptune and Chiron lines dominate India at the time of this aspect.  This signals some kind of healing for India (but, also, a risk of confusion).  Uranus and Sun lines touch Hanoi and Jakarta, and some challenges could be expected there.  The interior of China is affected by these lines, as well as a Mercury (communication) line.  Pluto and Saturn lines cross about halfway between Beijing and Tokyo.  Exactly what this means for China / Japan relations is not clear, but those two planets can be most challenging.

Australia and New Zealand

Apparently Western Australia has been experiencing some difficulties, and the Saturn line precisely on top of a border signals increasing strife regarding the issue of that border.  The remainder of the country does well, and the eastern coast (Canberra, Sydney) does particularly well with a Venus line passing through that region.  With a Moon line passing through Adelaide, a bit of thought about “what things really mean” is happening there.  Regarding any regional conflicts that might be occurring, Adelaide really desires peace and reconciliation, a united Australia, at this time.  Also note, the Pacific Rim countries due north of the relative cities will experience these same energies.  New Zealand, particularly southern New Zealand, is dealing with karmic issues (revisit the past).

One final note: far northern areas, such as Alaska, do not generate interpretable maps (too many lines converge).
