2015-07-29 Mercury Quincunx Pluto

By itself, Mercury quincunx Pluto is frustrating and tempers can flare due to frustrations and miscommunications.  This one is worse; it has what we call a “Thor’s Hammer Key.”  (Two interlaced Thor’s Hammer patterns).  This is another potentially dangerous day that sets the stage for the upcoming Full Moon (Blue Moon).

Here is the chart, filtered for the Thor’s Hammer (God’s Fist) pattern:

Double Yod Key 2015-07-10

Double Yod Key 2015-07-10 starts early on July 10, 2015 in the U.S. (by 8 AM in the UK) and lasts until the end of July 11, 2015.

Like all DYK’s, the message is straightforward: you are facing a minimum of two critically important choices that must be made on Friday or at the latest Saturday.  Note that these precede the Sun/Uranus Square of July 12, and no matter which options you choose you will find yourself dissatisfied (and possibly upset on Sunday / Monday).  (The DYK is made of three “quincunx” patterns, and those are the patterns of misunderstanding, miscommunication, and ultimately dissatisfaction with the choice made.)

Here is the chart of when the window for this pattern begins:

The South Node is in the mix, and that represents “taking the easy way out.”  Just realize that “taking the easy way out” may not really be so “easy” this time.  Repeating old behaviors does not necessarily benefit you.  The best option is the one that is truest not only to who you are but who you are becoming.

In any case, you must act quickly because your options will likely become closed by Sunday.

Venus Quincunx Saturn 2015-05-10 (Mothers Day)

We find five (!) quincunx on Mother’s Day besides this notorious one which perfects in the early morning hours.  The ultimate aspect of misunderstanding and miscommunication, it colors the day of this holiday:

So try to avoid taking too seriously anything anyone says today, whether “good” or “bad.”  Chances are good that any misunderstandings will “come to a head” in a few days on May 14th or May 15th.

Jupiter Quincunx Neptune then Pluto

An interesting configuration is emerging for mid August through September: Jupiter enters into a Quincunx with Neptune on August 14th and then another Quincunx with Pluto on September 5th.  The Quincunx tends to be a frustrating aspect indicating miscommunications and false hopes.  Arguable, given that the fastest moving planet here is Jupiter, and that it takes a year to move through a sign, this pair of Quincunxes is actually a Yod.  Yods signal forks in the road where we must make a choice and will inevitably look back at the path we did not choose to take.

See, also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yod_(astrology)

If this is indeed a yod, and I believe it qualifies, it indicates one of the biggest decision making periods to face us (collectively) in years.  For many people, this period in August through September of 2014 will signal a major shift.  Even if it is not entirely visible now, in years to come many of us will see how critically important our decisions were in this period.  What follows are the two charts for the “exact” points of each of these aspects.  But, again, these are such large aspects that for individuals the triggers for the critical moments will almost certainly involve aspects of the Sun or Moon or both.

In all fairness, I should note that these aspects are followed by different versions of these same aspects later this year and in 2015.  The Jupiter / Neptune Quincunx repeats October 23, 2016, May 17, 2017, and July 4, 2017.   Jupiter / Pluto Quincunx first occurred (in this cycle) July 18, 2012, then Dec 20, 2012 (the rather famous Solstice), March 29, 2013, September 5, 2014, February 27, 2015, and May 21, 2015.  BUT, the FIRST PAIRING of these occurs August / September 2014.  (Hence, this is the critical period, followed by a few more chances to “change the road you’re on.” (to paraphrase Led Zeppelin))

For many of us as individuals, the critical decisions will involve career or family or both.  Collectively, one critical question is whether certain current skirmishes will be contained or grow into some “world war.”  Many of these questions are really but the tip of a much larger iceberg.

What really interests me is the question of when do the Jupiter BiQuintiles to these planets occur?  (BiQuintiles are excellent for creative work and innovation.)  As far as I can tell, however, the current version of Solar Fire (SF 8) cannot do an electional search for Quintiles / BiQuintiles.  (If I am wrong, somebody let me know how to do this.)  (Update 8/18: I have a solution now and plan to explore this in a later post.)

If you are reading this post some years in the future, say about 2020 or beyond, please try to avoid romancing the choice (or “road”) that you did not take at this time.  It was fraught with perils that are now invisible to you from your vantage point in the future.  Chances are good that you made the right decision, even if it proved to be a bit problematic.

Groundhog Day 2013: Square Key

Groundhog Day of 2013 is marked by the appearance of a Square Key:

Square Key of Feb 2, 2013 1-25-2013 10-19-04 PM

[Click Image to Enlarge]

What does this mean?  The combination of squares and inconjuncts will leave people with a feeling that they “need to act.”  The squares will not let people sit still, but the inconjuncts (quincunxes) will leave people with a sense of dissatisfaction regarding whatever they do, or do not, accomplish.

Noteworthy, also, is the Thor’s Hammer (aka “God’s Fist”) that precedes this formation on February 1st.  Moon is at apex of the Thors Hammer while Jupiter and Chiron are on each leg.

The Thor’s Hammer may produce rash action (if not an explosion).  The Square Key will color the reactions which will likely be ineffective or misguided.

Update: After the fact events:

The Double Yod Key of March 30th

Why you need to really watch your mouth on March 30th.

What you say on Tuesday March 30th could have pretty serious consequences. And, if you are at all prone to “road rage,” then you better take a taxi, bus, or train.

Tuesday March 30th will have a series of “Double Yod Keys” that include a square of Mars and Mercury. By itself, a Mars and Mercury square can cause trouble. But with the Double Yod Key (DYK), mouth in motion before brain in gear can have lasting consequences.

Double Yod Keys, as a pattern, have only recently been recognized and discussed.  “Yods” are called “Fingers of God” and mark points where major decisions often must be made.  These kinds of decisions tend to persist. And, the failure to decide is (usually) the worst of all.  The parable of “Lot’s Wife” applies here: pick one and never look back.  With a Double Yod Key, two major decisions must be made. Actually, a third decision is made as well: of these two key issues, which is more important. (Be careful before you ask “who is it going to be, me or the dog?”)

A DYK always contains a square, and this one has Mercury (Communications) in Square (Conflict) with Mars (War and Fights).  Said differently, for many people this will be a dangerous time when they say or do things they regret.  In rush hour, this could be a particularly bad road rage incident.

Like any other energy, this can be harnessed productively.  But, the tendencies here are misunderstandings that explode into events with unintended consequences.  Chart + list of other DYK’s (Only the March 30th ones have the Mercury / Mars square) follows, with the March 30th periods in BOLD.

The East Coast of the US (particularly DC to Philly) picks up the Saturn energy here, but the rest of the US, UK, and most of Europe is generally unaffected.  (Of course, certain individuals will be highly affected.)

Globally, the main cities affected are Tokyo, Beijing, Hanoi, Darwin, and Central Australia (especially near Adelaide). I believe Delhi may feel some impact from this as well, and, if any major event occurs, India has the potential to provide leadership in healing afterwards. Here are the maps followed by upcoming periods of Double Yod Keys followed by analysis of two more patterns.

Quintile Kites

These are key periods for learning concepts and creative problem solving.  If you can set time aside to work upon your chosen problem (possibly the one you decided to solve with the advent and culmination of the recent equinox), this is a good time to brainstorm.  Save your action, if possible, for the Focused Yods (next).  Usable opportunities for CDT are in BOLD.

Tuesday into Wednesday and Then Thursday

If it is still Tuesday in your part of the world, you are still feeling the power of the Gemini Moon squares. Actually, the Moon is part of a “T” today: it squres both Saturn and Uranus who are opposite of each other. Gemini is duality incarnate, so this Moon tries to embrace both keeping a structure the same AND revolutionizing that structure. The contradiction leaves almost all of us uncomfortable. And, that energy guides the remainder of the forecast, below.

March 31, 2009 Horary Chart for Predictions of March 31, April 1 & 2

Tuesday: T-Square Dominates

The T-Square most profoundly effects the mutables: Gemini, Virgo, Sadge, & Pisces. I think Sadge will be hit hardest in the melee’ because that is where the “hole” is. Each T-Square produces a “hole,” which is the point where a planet WOULD be if the T-Square were completed into a Grand Cross. Today will be active for Sadge. And, good or bad, you’ll be ready to get home and hide from the world. Enough is enough.

Cardinals (Aries, Cancer, Libra, & Capricorn) have a sense that “something is about to happen” but that cannot happen for you yet. Wednesday may bring what you anticipate, whether you hope for it, fear it, or both. Sit tight till then.

Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, & Aquarius) are frustrated here. Much is going on, and as a group they are trying to take advantage of it, but not enough hours in the day to get it all done. Realize that you must let something go. If you are a fixed sign and an artist, this time favors you and you may turn out some of your best work. This is part of a series of similar periods, but you must harness it while it lasts. Also: this applies to Libra Artists and Writers as well.

April 1, 2009 Moon into Cancer

Wednesday: Long Void Morning then Moon into Cancer

April Fool’s Day this year will live up (or down) to its name this morning. Moon is void (unpredictable) in the trickster sign of Gemini. Just realize that if you think you are the trickster, you may find that the Universe has the last laugh on this one. Void Moons are best known for “nothing will come of this,” and you should hope so. Otherwise, the Void trickster Moon will wreak havoc with you.

Moon into Cancer changes everything, and the Cardinals (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) Libra encounters glitches but also possibly a brilliant idea if an artist or writer. Cancer breathes a sigh of relief that is short-lived; the pace picks up again. Aries realizes that the time to get things done is about to pass. Capricorn feels like Cancer and secretly wishes it were last year when Jupiter was there.

Fixed sign Leo takes a break or better take a break. Not time for Leo to push. But Taurus feels strong and can push ahead; Scorpio will feel some of this as well. Aquarius feels a sense of frustration as they realize that an important for in the road approaches.

Mutables can rest, at least for a brief moment, if they wish.

Thursday: Inconjencts and Yods

In fact, Cancer, Virgo, and Aquarius all feel this “fork in the road.” Far more than other signs, the dissatisfaction of the Yods of this day hit them. Gemini and Capricorn are hit as well; all five signs feel that something MUST be done. And, whatever the decision and the result, dissatisfaction will result and a question will linger about what the other path “would have been.”

Technically all signs are affected, but the other seven signs function more as spectators on this disconcerting day. (Expect technical difficulties, particularly with computers and electronics.)

This is a difficult day where almost nobody “wins.”  All of the aspects are either inconjuncts (false hopes) or oppositions (if not disputes then “grinding to a halt”).

The Moon is in Leo, which is usually excellent for “getting things done.”  But, the inconjuncts mean that we will not be satisfied with the results we get.  You will do things today, but you will find yourself wanting to do some of them over, later.

Tuesday is a “Monday,” also.  The signs are not much better.  A lunar void lasts until half past Noon, making the morning useless.  In the UK the void kills the work day.  Tuesday has a lone trine (Moon to Pluto) sandwiched between three inconjuncts (false hopes) and an opposition (grinding to a halt).  The best use for this day (and Monday) is for discussions and planning.  Armed with the knowledge of this forecast, YOU know that the plans will have to be re-done later.

Californians can jump-start (or re-start) an exercise program this evening.  They should look at a new angle on an old program.

January 9, 10, & 11: A Rather Wild Weekend

Looking for a “wild weekend”?  You will probably get your wish fulfilled this weekend.  On Friday, the Moon is void from just after Midnight (Central) to just after Noon.  If you live in the UK or Europe, this means that the Moon is void for the workday.  If you are a new reader, you might ask what does that mean?

The traditional interpretation of a Void Moon is “nothing will come of this.”  In recent years, some practitioners have noted that sometimes something very definitely DOES “come of this,” but often in a weird or unexpected way.

By itself, the Void Moon would be enough.  But Mercury is practically at a standstill, the official date of the Retrograde station being January 11th.  Mercury Retrograde is notorious for problems with thinking, communications, and transportation.  Princess Diana died in an automobile crash when the Moon was void and Mercury was retrograde.  So, be careful.

After the transit of the Moon from Gemini into Cancer, about Noon CST, a major shift in energy occurs.  People you know might just want to go home and hide out.  Or, since the Moon has moved into the sign where it will become full, they may be ready for a wild ride.

In fact, Friday evening is a good night to stay home with your sweetheart.

Saturday proves to be a “better” day, but remains “interesting.”  If you broke your diet the other day, then you can use Saturday to get restarted (Moon Sextiles Ceres.)  This may not prove easy, but if you fall down you can get a great idea (Moon Trine Uranus) from a lesson learned and re-start in earnest.  The Moon is Full by 9:30 Central.  After that, the Moon immediately goes void and is waning. Waning Moons favor diets.

Both Ceres and Mercury go retrograde Sunday.  We have described the problems with Mercury Retrograde a number of times, so we will concentrate on Ceres, the Grain Goddess.

With Ceres retrograde, you will have to carefully scrutinize the areas of feast and famine in your life.  This is not just with food; this can be an excellent time to make a budget or organize a family meeting to make a budget.

The Moon is void on Sunday until almost Noon, so any plans made during that time may be subject to revision.  Make your plans anyway, because Sun Trine Saturn will favor them.  (Most plans need revisions anyway.)

If you are having a family meeting, expect some disputes over these issues. Moon opposes Jupiter and is inconjunct Pluto. (Moon Opp Jupiter = “blows it out of proportion”; Moon Inconj Pluto = “power struggles that resolve into false hopes.”)

Even so, this is the time to “lance the boil.”

December 14, 2008 Finger of God Points Out Weak Points

Saturday December 13th the Moon shifted into Cancer, its home, the Full Moon energy terminated with the shift into a new sign, and one of Jim Shawvan’s Opportunity Periods began. This one continues until about 5:30 pm, EST, on the 14th.

A number of things happen today, but the big one is the Finger of God in the “clumsy” signs. I’m not sure which astrologer wrote it, but years ago I read that Cancer, Sadge, and Aquarius are the “clumsy” signs. People with planets in these signs, especially in several of them, are supposedly prone to gafs.

That said, in this specific group of signs, a Finger of God forms today, with Moon (in Cancer) inconjunct Sun (in Sagittarius) and Neptune (in Aquarius). The lunar opposition to Jupiter joins into this group to create what I call a “peace sign in the sky.”

My interpretation is that this grouping will lead all of us to explore points of weakness, points where we stumble, and find answers in spirituality. (The two spirituality planets are Jupiter & Neptune; both are involved here.)

So, do note that some excellent shopping opportunities continue, but be aware that you might somehow stumble today. That isn’t bad, because you have the opportunity to (probably safely) learn an important lesson.

Regardless, get done what you can.  Monday isn’t a very forgiving day.
