2016-04 W16: Forecasts for Week 16 of 2016

Spring is here.  We hope you get out in the sunshine and enjoy it when possible.  We are a month or less away from the Mercury Retrograde station on April 28th, and this is a relatively quiet time astrologically.  Overall, you can “get things done” and should use this window to do just that.  But life is short, so just remember to stop and smell the flowers along the way.

Weeks 15 and 16 are relatively quiet with primarily Mercury aspects bringing us our information and our need to change.  However, Mars is “slowing down” now and will station retrograde on April 17th followed by Pluto station retrograde on April 18th.  Mercury soon follows with station retrograde on April 28th.  “Things” grind to a halt during this window, and we have to review and reconsider our plans and efforts with little forward progress until after Jupiter stations direct on May 9th.

April 2016 (Mars Out)

Week 16 (W16)

Archive of Week 15

Sunday April 10th

As we mentioned yesterday, you are likely starting to “feel” (experience) the retrograde stations of Mars (April 17th) and Mercury (April 28th).  Little (and sometimes large) setbacks are making progress more difficult.

With Mercury perfecting a quincunx to Mars today, you feel this strongly.  For a number of people, today is unpleasant and may even turn dangerous.  Be careful.

Mercury will quincunx Saturn on Friday (similar to today), and Venus will quincunx Jupiter next Saturday followed by the Mars retrograde station on Sunday.  In simple terms: “Next Weekend Sucks.”  Fear not, the middle of the week has a few good aspects for you.

Monday April 11th

Lunar aspects predominate today with the Moon void near 2 PM CDT.  This is a much better day that yesterday though some of you may still feel the aftershocks.  Accomplish what you can in the morning and spend the afternoon and evening clearing out what did not work and resting.  This will be a busy week.

Tuesday April 12th

Mercury aspects Uranus in the early hours favoring writers and other communicators but bringing surprises to many of the rest of us.  Typically these should be benevolent surprises for most.  Venus trines Mars brings the ability to “get things done,” and this may be the best day this week for accomplishment.  Use it wisely.

Wednesday April 13th

Lunar aspects dominate again today.  The occasional problem surfaces, but you can push past it and you should do just that.  Tuesday’s grace continues today, and you will need it to achieve what must be done before the coming storm.

Thursday April 14th

The window closes after today.  You may feel so good by today that you come to believe that nothing can go wrong.  That is a foolish attitude to adopt; do not be lured into it.  Mercury trine Jupiter will help you accomplish today what you could not finish on Tuesday or Wednesday but, again, the window is closed after today.  Use today wisely.

Friday April 15th

Federal Income Taxes are due today for “natural persons” (not corporations or similar entities), Mercury perfects a quincunx to Saturn, and “things” begin to fall apart.  Do not be surprised at any lack of progress today but do congratulate yourself if you do accomplish something useful.  Please do realize that you may need to revisit your “accomplishment” later for some “tuning” or adjustment.

Once your taxes are done, take off today as much as possible.  If you have worked hard this week and done what needed to be done, then you will need the “down time.”

Saturday April 16th

Venus perfects quincunx to Jupiter, and today does not seem like much fun to many people.  Well planned family outings go awry, the plumbing springs a leak during your nap, and “things” simply do not go as planned.  Chances are good you will have unanticipated expenses.  If you did not feel tomorrow’s upcoming Mars retrograde station yet, then you will likely “feel” it today.

February 25th, 26th, and 27th of 2016

February 2016

Week 9 (W09)

Thursday February 25th

An early morning Mercury Sextile Saturn aspect continues to exert influence, and we need to pay attention to details today.  Morning quincunx aspects of the Moon frustrate many of us living in the Western Hemisphere, and “getting things done” can be difficult or maybe even impossible.  In the afternoon we can finally move forward and accomplish a few tasks that the morning would not let us do.

Friday February 26th

The Moon is very active today but void soon after 5 AM CST.  Getting things done can be difficult, and re-dos may be necessary.  But Mercury (Aquarius) sextile Uranus (Aries) brings brilliant ideas to writers, speakers, actors, spokespersons, electrical engineers, computer programmers, and inventors of any kind.  Even if you cannot act on these ideas, write them down in as much detail as possible.  They will be useful to you later.

Saturday February 27th

Moon enters Scorpio a little after 6 AM CST, but Mercury quincunx Jupiter tends to ruin the day for many.  Overspending on something overhyped that does not worked as intended leaves a bitter taste in our mouth for many.  As the old say goes, “if sounds too good to be true, it probably isn’t.”  Defer major purchases to another day, and do not pin any major expectations on people to actually live up to their word today.  Alternatively: do not promise anything to anyone no matter how simple and easy it “seems” it would be to do.

Thursday February 18th 2016

Thursday February 18th

As you know from yesterdays interpretations, the Sun is void.  If you need to “wrap things up,” particularly Aquarian type things (computers, internet, social groups, and so forth), then do so, but do know that a “re-do” may be in the works.  Aquarian anything tends to bring surprises, so you may never “see” the basis of this re-do.  When it does arrive, it will force a shift in your consciousness (sometimes a painful one for earth signs such as Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo).

Mercury sesquiquadrate Jupiter does mean that you have the energy to push forward, and in some cases you should do so even knowing that a re-do might be needed.  Chiron is novile Pallas, so we learn a powerful skill involving the question of how to get things done (Pallas, the warrior goddes of strategy) and healthcare or education (or both).

Today is very Mercurial.  Mercury septile Saturn (attention to detail and hard work can help us release some “Karma” by helping others), Mercury undecile Neptune (another “helping others” aspect), Mercury quintile Uranus (brilliant ideas, especially regarding issues involving communications and transportation; very good for writers and speakers), and Mercury sesquiquadrate Jupiter (a sort of amplifier of anything, and it is usually benevolent); all four of these aspects are present today.  Again, today is Mercurial.  (That also means WATCH YOUR TEMPER.  And, given Mr. Trump’s Mercurial nature (he is a solar Gemini), we would not be surprised to hear an important announcement from him on this date.)

Arguably we have a (VERY loose) yod, Moon to Mercury / Saturn, and you may have to make a significant decision during the Sun void period.  Later, after the Yod (and decision), Moon (Cancer) forms a T-Square with Uranus (Aries) and Pluto (Capricorn).  This pushes us to act, even though it may be against our better judgment during the Solar void.  In a sense, this is very much a “free will” time in which you will be completely responsible for the consequences of your decisions and following actions.

Yesterday:

Wednesday February 17th

This is another day where we feel an urgent push to “get things done.”  Venus and Mercury have both entered Aquarius, and Mercury semi-squares Chiron while Venus semi-squares Saturn.

Moon (Gemini) trines Sun (Aquarius) and goes void at 10:37 AM CST.  These are typically benevolent aspects (Moon/Sun trines) but something may require a re-do some time after the Moon enters Cancer at 1:24 PM CST.  Quincunxes soon follow (Moon to Mercury, Venus), and achievement of goals becomes even more difficult than during the void in the morning.  This is a good time to slip out of the office and go shopping for minor office supplies if you are compelled to “do something” this afternoon.

The Sun will soon move to Pisces (February 18th @ 11:33 PM CST), so some projects may have to wait until after that (February 19th or later).  This is not a “bad” day, but at times “things” might be “irritating.”  A subtle high order aspect between Vesta and Chiron may bring into questions issues about traditions (“how we have always done it”) and healthcare or education (or both).  A similar high order aspect between Pallas and Astraea may bring legal issues to the surface.

Mercury Trine Jupiter 2016-02-06

Since we have analyzed this date in depth elsewhere, we will skip a detailed analysis of this chart.  We do note that this occurred recently in retrograde form on January 14th and in direct form December 25th of 2015 (the recent “Full Moon Christmas“).  Also of note, Venus Square Uranus also perfects on this date as well as a number of other aspects.

Here is the chart for perfection of this aspect:

Saturday February 6th (W06)

For most people this will be a good day.  The only square is Venus square Uranus which is notorious for kinky sex and unusual romantic relationships.  Perfection of this aspect follows on the heels of yesterday’s Venus / Pluto conjunction, and this may be a sexually intense weekend for those who choose a “getaway” at this time.  (Venus Square Uranus is associated with “kinky” or untraditional sex.)   But, it could also bring a “surprise” from the standpoint of finances and financial dealings.  In any case, it is a continuation from the Venus / Pluto conjunction yesterday.

Today is at least as complex and active as yesterday if not more so.  Mercury Trine Jupiter enhances the continuation or revision of any work done by creatives yesterday.  This is known as a particularly benevolent aspect which helps in areas involving transportation and communication.  You saw this on January 14th in the retrograde form, and you may want to check your notes from that time.  This also occurred in direct form on Christmas Day of 2015.  You may want to check your notes from that time as well for any connections to what is happening now, particularly regarding communication and transportation and especially as they relate to bookkeeping, finances, employment, and healthcare.

Sun BiQuintiles the North Node, and that means that we just might have a very smart idea about how to handle some hard karma.  With Sun Sextile Uranus and Sun BiQuintile North Node, insights abound for those with eyes to see them and ears to hear them.  Venus is also septile Neptune, and doing something for someone less fortunate than yourself is a good idea.

The only real “downside” is that the Moon is void in Capricorn for most of the day, starting at 9:54 AM CST (10:54 AM EST / 7:54 AM PST).  That votes for sticking to routine, but if you do decide to become experimental in some way just realize that you might have a “re-do” somewhere in your future.

If you are a creative, you would be wise to make a devoted effort, anyway, to explore the dichotomy of the traditional and the taboo in your work as well as the “bones” of the work compared to events that might change that structure.  What you do today may not bear fruit.  And your attempts on Sunday (which you should also do) may not either.  But by some time next week (or possibly as late as the 14th for some of you), you may yet have a powerful breakthrough that propels your work forward in ways you cannot yet imagine or foresee.  As the old saying goes, “don’t give up 15 minutes before the miracle occurs.”

This is the weekend before the New Moon on Monday (and Chinese New Year) and a host of interesting aspects next week.  Vesta (a major asteroid) will oppose Black Moon Lilith (a point in space, similar to the nodes), and (along with a host of aspects to both next week) that portends a period both in this past week and next week where we will have no choice but to examine our traditions, taboos, and whether or not our beliefs about them need to change.  (Julie Demboski wrote an excellent piece on this, which we excerpted here.)

Thursday, January 14th, 2016

Thursday is a day where you may wish to complete your most critical tasks early in the day.  (EU / UK receives a bit of a reprieve due to time zone differences.)  The Moon goes v/c 10:32 AM CST (11:32 AM EST / 8:32 AM PST) with Moon Sextile Sun, near the end of the workday for most in EU/UK.  Jim Shawvan interprets this period as an “opportunity period,” and we agree except that opportunities in Pisces usually involve writing melodies and lyrics along with photography and video production.  Keep in mind that Mercury is Retrogrode, so addressing old project is the wisest use of any “opportunities.”

Retrograde Mercury meets the Sun circa 8:05 AM CST, and roughly the hour before and after this can be particularly useful for “getting things done” (keep in mind the flavoring of the Pisces Moon).  This day is also “bracketed” by important aspects as Mercury (Retrograde) trines Jupiter (Retrograde) at 8:15 PM CST.  Exactly what this means is not entirely clear, but it almost certainly involves some kind of overdue projects or issues that involve higher education (universities), courts, or travel (long distance, “foreign,” or overseas).  With both retrograde, we expect something previously hidden to show itself.

Mercury square Jupiter 2015-12-04 (Yods)

Mercury square Jupiter can be benevolent, but often it is not.  People talk too much, say things they cannot take back, overspend, overeat, and maybe overdo it in other ways.  Obviously, these are wrong uses of the aspect.  And, since this precedes Mars square Pluto by only a few days, things could go very badly.

But, Mercury square Jupiter can bring “luck” in areas such as lotto winnings, or seconds chances when you probably do not deserve one.  Arguably, it is one of a small handful of aspects associated with “grace.”

This particular one has a long term Yod (decisions) and T-Squares (anger or the energy to get things done, take your pick) embedded in it.  We present the chart, filtered for the Yods (two, possibly four, overlapping Yods):

Both Vesta (tradition) and South Node (doing things we have always done them, and not growing because of that) are at the apex at these overlapping Yods.   Astraea (law and legal system) is on one leg, and Juno (trust issues in general, and in particular involving wives, girlfriends, sisters, and maybe daughters) is on the other leg.  You will need to choose one path and forego the other.

We encourage our longer term readers to keep a journal and compare both the events of their life and current events to aspects to learn how to interpret those aspects.  In keeping with that, we present, next, a list of the perfections of Mars square Pluto from 2000 through 2030.  And, to see the surrounding aspects this month, click on this link for an Excel chart of Sunout aspects.  And, for an overview of patterns in November and December 2015, click this link.  If you are interested in Longer Term Forecasts (outer planets or “generational planets”), click here.
