Wednesday, February 24th 2016 (and Tuesday the 23rd)

Tuesday February 23rd

Another busy day greets us, especially with lunar aspects.  Jupiter opposes Chiron, then the Moon joins Jupiter and immediately opposes Chiron.  Health, healing, work, play, and education issues continue from yesterday.  Really, no rest for the weary today.

Wednesday February 24th

Some of us are still feeling Jupiter opposite Chiron.  It has been building for weeks, and we will still feel it at least through the end of Pisces 2016.  It touched us in November 2015, and it will touch us again in August of 2016.  Health and healing issues (and all things of Jupiter / Chiron) are central issues during this period.

We have something of a break, at least from the frantic lunar aspects, today as a void Moon swallows most of the work day in the Western Hemisphere.  Moon moves into Libra at 4:42 PM CST after going void at 8:23 AM CST on this same day.  It is a bit of a “day off” to recover and process the hectic activity of the past few days.  Use the time to center yourself (and clean house) wisely.  An early morning Mercury / Saturn sextile tomorrow influences today and tells us to pay attention to details especially when doing anything even remotely important.

Outer planet aspects are relatively quiet with the most important one being Vesta Quadrinovile Juno.  Something about our traditions or customs somehow can or does protect us in matters where trust is an issue.  Stick to well-known and tried and true methods and ideas during this time and steer clear of anything remotely weird or “creative” offered by others on this day.  If you have creative ideas yourself, write them down and save them for another day.  Venus semi-sextiles Neptune, so you WILL be tempted.  Just know better and do better.

And, as we mentioned before, pay attention to details.  Whether you are scammed today or not, pay attention to details so that you can spot some similar scheme in the future.  Issues involving prosperity (Ceres, particularly food), the legal system (Astraea), and power, police, and finances (Pluto) are in play here.  The scam might be a scammer on the phone (or in email) posing as your “bank” or posing as the “police.”  Do not be taken in!  Hang up on them and CALL the bank, or police, directly yourself.  Let’s be clear, for many of us “something” is up today.

Chances are good that they will play loss aversion on you:  “ACT NOW to prevent xyz loss.  We are trying to help you.”  Bite on this lure, and you will become the fish fry for supper.  Don’t fall for it!

Pay attention to details: did you get the area code, license plate number, etc.?  (Keep in mind you CAN win here!  Just don’t take the bait, and capture the details to report to the (real) police, bank, etc.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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