Wednesday March 2nd 2016

A Square Key has been present since February 20th and lasts until March 14th.  A Double Yod Key (DYK) begins today at 4:16 PM CST and lasts through Friday, March 4th at 9:12 PM CST.  The Double Yod Key brings us a period of several (at least two, possibly many more) important decisions, and the Square Key is a period of important (possibly life changing) “lessons.”  Friday afternoon is particularly important as a Focused Yod dominates the sky from 3:32 PM CST until 9:05 PM CST.  This period on Friday is an important time when we can “get things done.”

Wednesday, in particular, is a busy day in terms of lunar aspects, and these lunar aspects tend to favor fire and air signs.  Everyone will be busy, and for some of you (especially fire (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) and air (Libra, Aquarius, Gemini)) will be especially busy.

Venus (Aquarius) sextiles Uranus (Aries), and some people engage in kinky sex or at least “unusual” romantic relationships.  (If you have been contemplating such a thing, this is your day to “make it happen.”)

This is tainted a bit as Juno (trust and loyalty) stations retrograde today.  Juno is associated, also, with female roles, notably, wife, mother, sister, and daughter; of these, it is especially associated with the wife of the philandering husband (Jupiter).  In any situation, trust issues will come to the forefront today, and you may need to eject someone (maybe even a group) from your life.

Hygeia and Uranus are quadrinovile.  Quadrinovile is associated with powerful insights (sometimes “far out” metaphysical aspects) that open the door to new skills and technologies that completely alter how “things are done.”  Sometimes these are called “disruptive technologies.”  In this case, on one side, we have the “health and healthcare” issues of Hygeia and on the other we have “computers, internet, electronics, social workers, and radical innovations” from Uranus.  We would not at all be surprised to see some major shift in the healthcare system on this date.

We note that Venus (Aquarius) sextile Uranus (Aries) AMPLIFIES the Hygeia / Uranus aspect, and Aquarius is the home for Uranus.  Both Aquarius and Uranus are the home of all issues involving “computers, internet, electronics, social workers, and radical innovations.”  In a word, it is the “future.”  Venus is about art and love and pretty farms, but it is also finances (particularly the financial markets) and the body.

This a GREAT day to resurrect that “New Years Resolution” to improve your health but now in a more practical version that actually works.  And, if you already have a version that works you can now expand it (carefully) in some creative and innovative way.

Do keep in mind that much of this “turns off” on Thursday and the windows close.  If you are to get something done, do it today if you can.  Friday, you will get another shot at your single most important issue.



Full Moon 2:22 (February 22nd 2016)

Full Moon 2:22 (February 22nd 2016)

Some days are simple, and others are complex.  The same can be said for lunations (Full Moons and New Moons): some are simple, and some are complex.  The Full Moon today, and associated aspects, are complex.

First of all, the numerologists are surely have a field day with this.  (Note: I am not a numerologist.  Repeating star cycles make “sense” to me.  Repeating number cycles, that seem otherwise random, do not.  But, I am willing to “give them a chance.”)

Today is a 2:22 “Master Number Day” in a nine (9) year.  Since, in Western Numerology, “nines” disappear (when you use them to reduce a number you get the original number back), that means that today is a pure “2:22” Master number day.  A similar Full Moon will not occur again until 2035, and 2035 reduces to “1” which means THAT “2:22” Master Number Full Moon is not “pure” like this one.  From this vantage point, alone, today is special.

AND, we have four patterns present in this Full Moon: (1) a Hele indicating important allegiances being formed or “updated”; (2) a Yod indicating an important decision today (probably about the allegiances though not necessarily); (3) a Square Key (which indicates that important “lessons” can be learned from the outcomes of today’s decisions; and (4) a Thor’s Hammer (the “God’s Fist” pattern which provides “energy” but can lead to anger, tempers flaring, and sometimes violence or explosions).  To be certain, it is a very “busy” day.

Sun in Pisces is opposed by Moon in Virgo.  As many have written elsewhere, this brings into play themes of work (Virgo) and play (Pisces), detailed oriented tasks such as bookkeeping and accounting as opposed to development of lyrics and music, and similar Pisces / Virgo issues.  With Jupiter (the “old” or “traditional” ruler of Pisces) nearby in Virgo and Neptune (the modern ruler of Pisces) nearby in its home sign of Pisces, the Pisces side of these issues is particularly emphasized.  Weirdly, this could mean odd things such as seeing the “music” in bookkeeping and accounting or similar viewpoints.  (And this is a very important date for anyone in the “music business.”)

In addition to the Full Moon, Venus is particularly active today.  Issues of health, beauty, and finances come to the forefront.  Venus quintile Mars brings innovative ideas about how to “get things done.”  Venus septile Saturn may provide some hard lessons about how we thing about helping those less fortunate than ourselves.  Venus undecile Neptune brings in issues of dreams, poetry, music, drugs and alcohol, and those are already in play with this particular Full Moon.

Outer planet aspects are particularly active, and Hygeia enters Virgo (again, emphasizing the healthcare issues associated with this Full Moon).  Neptune is semisquare Vesta, and we find ourselves feeling some sense of urgency in which our traditions and “how we have always done it” are in conflict with our desires and hopes regarding play, health, dreams, music, poetry, drugs and alcohol.  (Maybe it is time to find a new way to “get things done.”)  Juno semisquares Hygeia, and somehow some of us find our faith shaken in an important way regarding health and the healthcare system.  Jupiter is semi-sextile Black Moon Lilith (a point, not a planet), and some of us must explore taboo topics particularly regarding sex and sexuality.

Here is a list of New Moons for 2016, and here is a list of Full Moons for 2016.

As an aside, I am including the forecast for the previous day (Sunday 2:21) rather than making a separate post for it:

February 2016

Week 9 (W09)

Sunday February 21st

Sunday continues the yod of Saturday in a different variant form with Chiron effectively replacing Neptune and forcing issues involving health or education (or both) to the forefront.  A grand fire trine (Uranus / Moon / Saturn) helps us to “get things done” particularly if we are either a fire sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) or an air sign (Libra, Aquarius, Gemini).  Since fire signs are favored most, if you are a air sign you would be smart to hitch your wagon to a fire sign today if you can.  Water and Earth signs can “get things done” also, but are not favored as much (except by means of any fire or air sign planets you might have in your natal chart).  Whatever the case, make your decision by 10 AM CST if you want to be effective in “getting things done” today.

Moon (Leo) squares Mars (Scorpio) at 7:18 PM CST and then goes void.  Best to have your project finished by this point in time if at all possible.  Stick with productive time before the void and use the void for “cleanup” activities once the void begins.

Tuesday February 2nd 2016 (W06) Groundhog Day

This is an oddly annoying day in which we are not entirely certain what is wrong.  Multiple high order Hygeia aspects tells us we must focus on health and healthcare.  Unlike days with Chiron aspects, this is specifically health and healthcare without educational issues as an alternative.

Actually, Chiron does semi-square Pallas in the early morning hours, so education COULD be involved (but in a minor way if at all).  The semi-square gives us a sense of urgency as we search the house for the glasses that are in our shirt pocker.  If you can, avoid being caught in the fray and stay to the side watching the show.

Noting that this is “Groundhog Day,” we predict a sense of disappointment pervades the air.

We have a day with a void Moon in Scorpio (during the morning hours that the Groundhog will, or will not, see his shadow) that slips into Sagittarius during the morning hours and is influenced by the subtle of higher order aspects described.  We are probably still processing the events of yesterday as we inquire as to whether or not the Groundhog saw his shadow.  Take today off it you can, otherwise stick to routine and followup and what you were working on yesterday until at least some time past noon (U.S.) or 6 PM (UK/EU).

We also encourage you to read yesterday’s forecast (which covers some outer planet aspects that are still in effect today.

Tuesday October 20th: Venus Conjunct Hygeia

2015 is nearing the end with only a little more than two months to go.  On this date, Tuesday, October 20, 2015, the Moon is void most of the day.  Much of what you do will tend to not bear fruit or have an odd outcome.  It is a bit like asking the wish of the genie and having them grant it only to find that it really does not suit you.

Venus is conjunct Hygeia, and health and health issues come to the forefront.  A Hele leads to polarization with groups, but much of their effort does not produce precisely what they desire.  If you did not get it done on Monday, then take a day off on Tuesday and watch the others in the fray.  Wednesday brings a fresh start in some minor way that will seem refreshing.

Venus Conjunct Hygeia 2015-10-20 (Hele)

Venus Conjunct Hygeia 2015-10-20 (Hele)

This is a bit of an odd day as Venus (the traditional planet of health and beauty as well as other things such as finances) conjoins Hygeia (the asteroid devoted entirely the health and healing).  By itself, that is not odd, but the void Moon enters Aquarius (associated with Uranus) shortly before the Venus / Hygeia aspect perfects late in the day after a long Capricorn Moon v/c.

A Hele pattern is present, indicating long term alliances and likely polarization in some kind of conflict.  This is a odd one as we see Venus/Hygeia (clearly health and healthcare issues) in an alliance (trine) with Pluto (police, intelligence agencies, drugs, poisons) versus an alliance (trine) between Astraea (law and the legal system) and Uranus (electronics, technology, surprises, and revolutions).

Here is the chart, filtered for a Hele pattern:

2015-10-20 Venus Conjunct Hygeia (Hele)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We are not certain how to interpret this, but we will go out on a limb and speculate that this is a associated with a data breach of some kind, particularly some kind of data breach involving health and healthcare (our second choice, a distant second, is something in financial services).

Alternatively, we may see a major lawsuit filed involving HIPAA and similar healthcare privacy protections.  Perhaps a scandal breaks involving hospitals that illegally provide private health information to law enforcement agencies?

Hygeia Enters Virgo and Squares Saturn 2015-09-19

Hygeia (health, healing and healthcare professions) enters Virgo (arguably its home) on September 19th and almost immediately squares Saturn at 0 Sagittarius.  Both Virgo and Sagittarians will likely “feel” this day, but so will Pisces and Gemini.  This is especially true for those who birthdays (Sun or other planets) are near the “cusp” including late Leos, Scorpios, Aquarians, and Taureans.  (Birthdays a few days before or after February 18th, May 21st, August 23rd, and November 22nd).

Here is the chart for entry of Hygeia into Virgo:

2015-09-19 Hygeia Enters Virgo

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Health and healthcare issues are likely to be prominent on this date, particularly for those with birthdays “near” the dates previously mentioned.

Here is the chart for the square:

2015-09-19 Hygeia Square Saturn

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note significant 5th Harmonic activation at this time.  A 5th Harmonic pattern resembling a Yod is in play, and we believe that this represents an opportunity to choose between two alternative innovative solutions that present on this date.

Here is the chart of Hygeia entry into Virgo, filtered for 5th Harmonic aspects:

2015-09-06 Thor’s Hammer

A Thor’s Hammer pattern involving Hygeia (health and healthcare issues), Vesta (traditions), and Pluto (sex, birth, death, rebirth, taxes, police, intelligence agencies and someone else’s money) begins Sunday, September 6, 2015 and lasts at least through Thursday, September 10th.  Expect to see issues arise involving healthcare, bureaucracies (e.g. health insurance companies), and government agencies.  Healthcare may rise again as a critically important political issue.  Chances are good you will see something about this in your personal life.

Here is the chart for the beginning of the pattern:

2015-09-06 Thor's Hammer

[Click Image to Enlarge]

During this week, we will also see Sun square Pallas perfect on September 8th.  By the weekend, we will see Sun opposite Chiron perfect on September 12th, which will bring some of these issues into an unavoidable confrontation.  As we always say, avoid rash actions (and rash people) and focus your energies into productive accomplishments.

We also note the formation of Hele patterns.  This tells us that strong alliances will emerge from this conflict, some of them long lasting.  Polarization of attitudes is likely, and compromise is unlikely.

We recommend that you pick your friends carefully and consider whether your conflicts will result in anything productive or long lasting.

Solar Eclipse (and New Moon) of March 2015

This New Moon (NM) is also a Solar Eclipse (SE).  It contains a complex parable of allegiances, hard and fast, during a period of multiple changing allegiances.  As we tell this tale, keep in mind that it is a metaphor, and the particulars in your individual situation may vary from what we describe.  And since the Vernal Equinox of 2015 follows this eclipse later the same day, we know that there will be more to follow in this story.

That said, on one side we have the angry wife who has been betrayed one time too many and her austere and bony father who has no sense of humor.  On the other side, we have the husband, a lyrical poet and musician who likely abuses alcohol or drugs or both along with his friend the healthcare professional.  Indeed, both of them might work in healthcare.

You should not take this metaphor too literally.  The “angry wife” might be an angry husband, and the “bony father” might be his battleaxe mother.  The “lyrical poet” of a husband might be a wife who works part-time as a prostitute to support her meth habit, and the friend in “healthcare” might be supplying the meth.  And, somewhere in this drama, you have a role even if that role is the role of the audience.

Before you decide that one side is “better” than the other, keep in mind that the “angry wife” might indeed a be a hellion that no one can live with, and the humorless father might just be a bitter old man looking for yet another victim to expend his wrath upon.  Maybe our lyrical poet / alcoholic has just finished treatment and, now clean and sober, he wonders how he ever became involved with these awful people.  (He must have been drunk!)  And, his friend the healthcare professional agrees.

Every story has two sides.

But, in this story, the angry wife and humorless father will tend to be the “winner” for the time being.  That is, “sorta.”  “Sorta” the winner.  But chances are good the divorce attorney(s) who blow things out of proportion will be the real winners.  (More on that later.)

Before we reach the story, we should point out that this is a Solar Eclipse, and such eclipses tend to signify changes that last for months and years.  This is a bit more than an ordinary new moon, and it happens early on the same day as the Vernal Equinox that follows (the “first day of Spring,” which is the astrological New Year and sets the tone for the remainder of the year.  Compare: the Vernal Equinox of 2010 which preceded a series of disasters including the WVA Mine Explosion and the Deepwater Horizon.  And since the final Uranus Square Pluto exact square preceded this eclipse only by a few days, we can say that the times, and people, are “not entirely stable.”  (More about Uranus Square Pluto.)

This NM contains TWO yods:

Solar Eclipse (SF) Double Yod Key 2015-03-20

[Click Image to Enlarge]

At this point we should offer our “reference pages” (previous analyses that might interest you):

See a pattern yet?  (Yods do not happen “all the time,” but it SEEMS that way since August 2014!)

So, if you have visited this site before and read the recent full moon and new moon posts, you know that this means that many of us will face two decisions.  We tend to call these patterns “double yod keys,” (DYK) though SolarFire 8 did not identify this pattern specifically as being a DYK.  A DYK, two or more yods together at the same time, signify AT LEAST TWO decisions in play, and possibly a number more.  This eclipse is a “fork in the road” for many, and we have had many “forks in the road” since August of 2014.

Now to our story.  A Hele identifies our players.  On one side we have Juno (“angry wife”) and Saturn (“humorless father”) in a trine.  On the other side, we have Neptune (“lyrical poet but maybe alcoholic”) and Hygeia (“healthcare professional”) on the other side in a similar alignment.  Neither side really likes the other, and neither side is budging in its position:

Solar Eclipse (SF) Hele 2015-03-20

[Click Image to Enlarge]

March has been a month of polarization and allegiances.  Where you stand on the issues that face you could be a function of where you stood at the time of the recent full moon (FM).

“Things” could become rather dicey in this situation.  Maybe some third parties become involved (police?) and some otherwise innocent and unarmed person gets shot.  (That seems to be a theme lately.)  Maybe someone or something “goes boom.”  We say this because a “Thor’s Hammer” is in play involving Jupiter (who often blows things out of proportion), the eclipse itself, and Pallas (the warrior goddess).  While we do not know exactly who these players are (except maybe Jupiter), we do know that NONE of them are the four disputants (Saturn, Juno, Hygeia, or Neptune, aka father, wife, friend or husband).

Solar Eclipse (SF) Thors Hammer 2015-03-20

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Oddly, we might have the “friend in healthcare” as the instigator of any conflict, given the position of Hygeia in a T-Square.  With the Uranus / Pluto square having recently culminated, we see a potential for awful things to happen.  (Hollywood movies might emerge from these stories.)

Solar Eclipse (SF) T-Squares 2015-03-20

[Click Image to Enlarge]

A grand fire trine (GT) is emerging, and as always seems to be true in almost any situation, some people will have an opportunity to profit or benefit from this conflict.   That opportunity will have a window that continues mostly through March 25th  but a few windows will be open as late as March 29th.

Solar Eclipse (SF) GrandTrines 2015-03-20

[Click Image to Enlarge]

 This GT favors the angry wife (Juno) and humorless father (Saturn) and their allies (the Eclipse itself).  (The lyrical poet Neptune and healthcare friend Hygeia are left out of this powerful allegiance.)  But, let’s be clear, the biggest winner in all this conflict will be the one who “blows things out of proportion” (Jupiter, the divorce attorney(s) (who may be even more of a philanderer than our alcoholic husband!)).

And we see that level of power and influence in this version of the chart:

Notice that everything “points” to Jupiter, the real “winner” in this war.

Full Moon of October 8th (October 2014 Full Moon)

Here is the astrological chart for the upcoming Full Moon of October 8th, set in Plano TX:

Full Moon October 2014 (Basic)

 [Click to Enlarge]

We see the Moon in Aries opposing the Sun in Libra, which is what we expect at this time of year.  Several things make this FM interesting.  First of all, Pluto in Capricorn squares it, which greatly heightens the tension.  Some of the people born at this time will be quite remarkable, judges, or generals, or maybe serial killers.  If you use asteroids in your interpretations, then we see Hygeia (healthcare and health issues) in Cancer in opposition to Pluto in Capricorn.  I would not be surprised to see HMO’s or some similar kind of healthcare issue pop up in the news.  (We already have the Ebola discussion, but this involves something financial, such as why Big Pharma has not funded much (any?) research on developing a vaccine for Ebola.)

[Update: Thomas Eric Duncan dies on this date (less than two hours after culmination of the full moon), spurring much debate about the healthcare system.  NY Times Article. ]

Another condition that makes this FM interesting is that Mercury is retrograde.  Some things really are “coming to a head” or to a “boiling point” with this FM and some people will decide that “something must be done.”  We may see some kind of important breakthrough about six days after the FM as Mercury moves backwards to conjoin Pallas.  Alan Lin describes Pallas as the “Goddess of Applied Intelligence.”  We may not see a good window to fully apply this breakthrough until after the New Moon and possibly until after Mercury turns direct.

All of that SHOULD be enough, but we note, also, that a Grand Fire Trine is in play: Moon and Uranus together in Aries, Jupiter in Leo, and Mars (and Vesta!) in Sagittarius.  This provides the inspiration to “get things done” but does have the danger of “much talk and no action.”  Whether or not action occurs depends on Pluto (finances) in this case.  If you decide to become enthusiastic about something, pick a project (or projects) that have the resources (money) to actually be done.  Otherwise it will all be much ado about nothing.

Like one of those late night television advertisements, here is where we say “but, wait! That’s not all!”  Remember that rare (and USEFUL!) Quintile Kite that we keep talking about!  Well, that happens the NEXT DAY on October 9th.  Use this surplus of energy (FM, Grand Cross, Grand Trine) on a project that is feasible (Pluto in Capricorn) and funnel those energies into creative solutions (Pallas, Vesta, Quntile Kite).  Solving problems involving healthcare issues are especially favored.  And, keep in mind that you may hit some bumps in the road.  You may not see progress until after the New Moon or even after Mercury makes the Direct Station (October 21st).

Apparently some of you do like the maps (I received some feedback about this).  Keep in mind that what I put up, or say, depends on feedback.  1,000 visitors and no one comments about maps means that no one is interested and I take them down.  (And, yes, that kind of thing can easily happen.  This site sees roughly 12,000 to 13,000 visitors per year currently, so 1,000 visitors can easily come through in a month.  A month with no comments leads me to believe that I do not have much interest in what I am doing and I expend my time and energy elsewhere.)

Here is the U.S. map:

FM 2014 October US Map

[Click to enlarge]

This is a very active map, but it only has one noteworthy crossing.  We see lines through Denver, Albuquerque, and Nashville.  Eastern Seaboard is lit up with a complex collection of lines with Boston and Philadelphia particularly affected.  But most interesting of all is the crossing of lines a few hundred miles due east of San Francisco.  If I had to pick an “interesting” place to be (in the U.S.) on this full moon, I would pick San Francisco or more specifically that spot a bit east of there.  Interesting “things” may happen there.  (But, even more interesting, see Trondheim, below.)

Regarding the map of Europe, we first see a Vesta line through the UK, approximately on the border between Scotland and England.  Looks like things there may not be quite settled.  And, since Vesta (THE “warrior goddess”) is involved, and on the Ascendant, we may see the UK become involved (decisively!) in a military action.  What I am saying is that they may decide to strike.  And, if they do become so focused, they will pretty much obliterate the enemy, whoever that is.  (Ouch!)

FM 2014 October Europe Map

[Click to Enlarge]

Something equally troubling is brewing in Poland (I do not read the news there, so I do not know what), and we see this with the Mars line coming so close to Warsaw.  Lithuania is similarly activated, and we see Austria, Italy, and several other countries “picked up” by this Mars line.  Sun and Moon lines are near Berlin and prominently influence the Czech republic as well.  Not sure how Germany will handle this, but I bet that change is “afoot.”  I think that Germany CAN use this time/energy to make their financial position EVEN STRONGER.  (And, to be sure, they are very strong.)

Even more interesting is how the already powerful financial juggernaut of Norway has a Vesta/Venus crossing!  Wow!  If I could move to Norway and start a career there, then I would be tempted to do just that!  This is really the place to be, maybe even more than Germany.  Trondheim is VERY strong.  (Refer to Map.)  All of Scandinavia is treated quite well by this FM, but Norway is particularly strong (with Sweden very close)!

(Too bad Trondheim is not a sister city to Plano!)

The complex of lines through Southeast Asia, including Cambodia and Viet Nam, is really too complex to interpret.  This may be the most highly activated area in the world currently, and the unrest could break out into some kind of war, possibly something similar to a civil war.  The instability is really difficult to describe.  Also worrisome is the triple line crossing at the northernmost edges of India and Pakistan.  Involving Chiron (old wounds), Neptune (deception and misunderstanding), and Mars (violence and war), “things” could become very dicey here as well.

The Jupiter / Vesta crossing in Eastern Iran indicates some kind of powerful opportunity there for someone who knows how to take advantage of it.  Here is a “zoomed out” map of SE Asia:

Australia is far quieter than these other parts of the world.  However, Sydney and Newcastle may be experiencing some odd kinds of problems with their food supplies this spring.  (This is spring in Australia, and that is probably a good excuse to go visit.)  Perth is also activated, but a Pallas Descendant line is likely to be beneficial: certain individuals (and maybe teams) in Perth has an opportunity to innovate solutions that may not be obvious to others.

Pravasini’s Chart

January 9, 2013 at 1:00 am | Posted in Astrology, NatalChartAnalysis | 1 Comment

Reader Pravasini has requested a chart:

Liked your site very much.  I was born in India but presently staying at USA.  Trying for a child for long.will the saturn return affect according to birth place or to the current residence

Here is the chart:

Pravasini 2 1-8-2013 1-25-18 AM

[Click to Enlarge]

Pravasini asks about having a child (and pregnancy).  This kind of question is outside the scope of what we ordinarily address, but perhaps we can find an answer in our more broad analysis.

Furthermore, we are using Western astrology which is a different system from that which Pravasini has encountered before.  If she prefers a Vedic analysis, we recommend that she consult with a competent astrologer trained in that methodology.

A preponderance of planets in Leo, Virgo, or both has the reputation of precluding fertility.  We do not see that difficulty in this chart.  Her moon is in Libra, and in the Via Combusta, so she does meet some life challenges.  Located in the 11th house, she tends to have a fair number of friends and generally has good relationships.  Her largest difficulty is “drawing the line” with people who would “take advantage” of her good nature.

We see Pluto and Saturn in the 12th, and the asteroid Hygeia (health) is beseiged by these two malefics in the house of self-undoing.  This could indicate some significant health difficulties, particularly if she works too hard and does not do what is needed to take care of her health.  Additionally, Saturn has touched both in the last year, and she has been through her Saturn return.  Saturn returns tend to drive certain kinds of events, and the desire for a child is one of them.

Other than taking care of her health, and limiting the demands of friends, we do not see any particular obstacle to her having a child.

As a side issue, she has Jupiter and Uranus conjunct in the first.  That indicates that her life has been frequently puncutated by surprises.  Let us hope her wish is granted in a pleasant way.
