Mercury Square Mars 2016-10-13 (Thor’s Hammer)

The bad news is that, once again, we face this dangerous aspect.  The good news is that it is the last occurrence this year.  In fact, SolarFire’s Electional Search feature does not find another occurrence until 2018 (refer to list, below).

This one is uncomplicated, and a single pattern is present: a Thor’s Hammer.  Watch your temper today, avoid sharp words and avoid dangerous people, places, and things.  Whatever it is, walk away from it.  If you are a warrior or criminal, then you might be empowered today.  But, if you are one of those and you lose, then you will tend to “lose big.”

We present the chart for perfection of Mercury Square Mars on this date, filtered for the Thor’s Hammer pattern:

Mercury Square Mars 2016-09-12 (Hele + Rosetta + Thor’s Hammer)

Mercury Square Mars 2016-09-12 (Hele + Rosetta + Thor’s Hammer)

As was true with the Mercury Square Mars aspect of July 29th, a Hele and Rosetta are present in this variant of the aspect.  Unlike July, a Thor’s Hammer is present rather than a Yod.  That means that this time issues have “heated up,” possibly issues from late July, and the key is to examine your alliances without losing your temper or being victimized by your associates.  To be certain, this is a dangerous window.  (We say window because arguably this aspect affects at least the day before and day after perfection of the aspect, namely the period from September 11th to September 13th.)

We present perfection of the Mercury Square Mars aspect, filtered for the Thor’s Hammer:

Mercury Square Mars 2016-07-29 (Yod + Hele + Rosetta)

This aspect often leads people to say or do thing they regret later.  And, alternatively, you need to watch for dangerous people, places, and things.  This particular perfection of Mercury Square Mars has a Yod, meaning you face a decision, and a Hele and a Rosetta.  That means you need to form long term alliances, if possible, but you have a real issue with who you can trust.  We advise that you be careful in the choices you make today.

March 2016 (Mars Out)

Week 10 (W10)

Wednesday March 2nd

This is a busy day in terms of lunar aspects, and they 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. <click here to read more>

Thursday March 3rd

The brakes are applied, and we hope you fully accomplished your objective, or at least made a milestone, yesterday.  Moon moves into Capricorn in the early morning hours (Western Hemisphere), and that brings a “two steps forward and one step backward” kind of energy to the day.  Venus (Aquarius) forms a quincunx (false hopes and miscommunications to Jupiter (Virgo).

We tend to mis-step or overlook important points, and we can make a bad decision about finances or taxes today.  Probably NOT the day to consult with a physician or accountant, but, if you do, you might hear something you do not want to hear.  Details are important, so pay attention, and please do realize that your traditions and habits (Vesta) may not serve you as well today as you might hope. <click here to read more>

Friday March 4th

Moon is busy again today, and it conjoins Pluto (Capricorn) and squares Uranus (Aries) creating a frantic feel to the early part of Friday afternoon (EST / CST; morning to afternoon MST / PST).  Mercury squares Mars (that happens a number of times this year), and we may speak words that we wish, later, that we had not.  Alternatively, someone may be angry or abusive towards us and force us to defend ourselves.  Friday and Saturday both are affected by this, and “things” can turn rather “ugly.”

Saturday March 5th

Today is a bit strange.  A short void between 11 AM and Noon (CST) punctuates the end of Moon in Capricorn and introduces Moon in Aquarius.  As we mentioned yesterday, Mercury squares Mars (early morning hours EST and UK/EU; late Friday for CST / MST / PST) and issues of tempers flaring (and possible danger) continues.  Mercury moves from Aquarius to Pisces a few hours after thing, and we WOULD say that things are better except that sets the stage for a Mercury / Saturn square on March 14th after the Mercury / Neptune conjunction on March 10th.  Mercury is busy, but Pisces forces it to speak in sometimes unclear poetry instead of straightforward prose.

Mars enters Sagittarius and prepares to make a series of aspects similar to the Mercury aspects in the next few weeks.  It is a new period, and during this period “things” can be unpleasant.  Sun squares Saturn today, and that is an annual repeating aspect (twice a year) that always puts a damper on both mood and accomplishments.

This might not be the “brightest” weekend.  Use it to “get things done” *IF* you can.

Mercury Square Mars 2016-03-04 (Double Yod Key + extra Yod + Kite + Hele)

Mercury Square Mars 2016-03-04 (Double Yod Key + extra Yod + Kite + Hele)

As typically true with so many variants of this aspect, watch your words and watch your temper.  But, really, this one is about decisions.  A Double Yod Key is enough to tell us that more than one is in play, but a THIRD yod is present in addition to the DYK.  “Should I Stay or Should I go?”  You need to decide today.  Yods always leave us wondering “what if” we had taken the other path, but you must decide, and a failure to decide is a decision itself.  A kite is present, indicating at least one opportunity, and a Hele tells us that today is about forming long term alliances also.  People will like polarize about disputes today.

Here is the chart, filtered for the DYK:

Sunday January 31st 2016

Sunday brings the second part of the T-Square we previously mentioned: Mercury square Uranus.  We have visited this aspect several times since December, and we are probably tired of it by now.  With Moon in Scorpio, we may be up for one last fight, but is it worth it?  Only you can decide.

For better or worse, this aspect will bring insights.  Creatives, particularly writers and computer programmers (who do creative programming) will prosper.  Others will find themselves suddenly thinking “out of the box” and wondering “why was I in ‘the box’ to begin with.”  It is definitely a day of surprises for at least some people, particularly Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn.  You almost certainly felt this on Saturday (and maybe Friday), and you will almost certainly feel it on Monday (and maybe Tuesday).

For some people, this is the kind of Sunday where, on Monday, you pretend to leave for work but go somewhere entirely different and hide for a day or week or year.  (Maybe you “go out for cigarettes and never come back,” as was popular in the 1950’s and 1960’s.)  Do keep in mind that “this too shall pass,” and “things” will become different.  (Not “better” or “worse” but “different.”)  But, again, this will be a critically important turning point for some people who choose to move into new circumstances.  A fair number of you will do just that.

While we are technically still in the “retrograde shadow,” in many ways moving past this final aspect of the sequence ends this particular sequence of dramas and opens the door for us to (finally!) move in new directions.  But, in January of 2017 (when Mercury conunct Pluto perfects again), we may want to revisit our thoughts, notes, and decisions at this time.

Forecast for Tuesday, January 5, 2016

Tuesday is EXTREMELY busy, and any one of three situations COULD dominate the day.  Do not be surprised if problems and issues come in “threes” today.

Most people (astrologers) consider any one of these to be “bad,” or “difficult,” or “a ‘growth experience.’”  (Take your pick, depending on your worldview.  But, all are different descriptions of the same underlying events.)  Mercury / Mars “just happened” in late December, and, effectively, we have never left it.  M/M is one of the more dangerous aspects, and coupled with the “overdue issues that need to be revisited” aspect of Mercury Retrograde it may be extra dangerous today.  Be careful today, and consider staying home.

That said, SOME people CAN harness all this juice.  Just know that you will need to be looking at old projects that may be coming ripe for a resurrection, and that you will need to “cross every ‘t’ and dot every ‘i.’”  If someone gets too aggressive or pushy about a “deal,” then back out of it and put it (and them) on ice for review on another day.  A New Moon is only a few days away anyway, and if you are a regular reader of this blog then you know that we recommend the period before a NM for clearing away clutter and cleaning to prepare for some kind of launch AFTER the NM.  And you might have to wait much later, maybe until some time AFTER the Direct Station on January 25th.

[edit]  Actually, an important fourth consideration is in play also: Venus Squares Neptune.  It is the aspect of the passionate but short-lived romance.  It is the stuff of great movies about love lost and heartbreak and the question of “whether or not it is better to have loved at all.”  It also is the aspect of ripoffs and scammers and “things that sound too good to be true.”  If you encounter that today, then know that it is too good to be true.  That is almost a certainty on this date.  And, if you combine it with the other aspects (such as Mercury Square Mars), things could turn very “ugly” (meaning violent or even deadly).  This aspect, normally “mostly harmless,” makes this particular day extraordinarily deadly for some people.

Since some people may have trouble visualizing the kind of dangerous situation we are describing, we offer this video of a classic song as a metaphor to clarify the uncertain:

Mercury Square Mars 2016-01-05 (Thor’s Hammer)

We saw this December 29th, and we see it again just before (one of) the annual Sun Square Pluto aspect perfects.  As we said before, it tends to be a dangerous aspect, and this time it is even more dangerous by co-occurring with Sun Square Pluto.  You can “get things done” today, but be careful!

Here is the chart for perfection of the aspect, filtered for the Thor’s Hammer:

Mercury Square Mars 2015-12-29 (Thor’s Hammer Key)

Mercury Square Mars is a notoriously dangerous aspect, the kind that makes the list containing Mars Square Pluto.  This one has interlaced Thor’s Hammer patterns, and we call that combination a “Thor’s Hammer Key.”  Watch out for dangerous people, places, and things, and do not be one yourself.

Conflicts today are almost certainly related to the decisions of Sunday and Monday, recently, and the events associated with the Full Moon of Christmas 2015 on Friday and the followup events of Saturday (Mars Semisquare Saturn).

Here is the chart, filtered for the Thor’s Hammer patterns:
