By Colleen Schmidt

New Moon: Sun at 7 degrees 59 minutes of Capricorn287

ARIES:  This month may highlight issues with automobiles or vehicles in general.  There could be matters that are out of control to the point where they could feel very self-destructive.  Your mind and/or memories are erratic.  Be wary of the risks this month as winning, achieving goals and seeing just rewards are important BUT you might plunge into something that could be self-destructive or defeating.  This month also highlights marriage and other close partnerships.

TAURUS:  Many times this month will feel fated and predestined, as if you are being tested in some way.  You might sense things are not being done correctly or that they are being done backwards.  You just want to get to the bottom of things and you feel as if you have been enduring a great deal.  Memories could be triggered by photographs. …

Solar Eclipse of September 1st 2016

This particular eclipse is personal for reasons I do not wish to disclose on the open internet.  I thought about NOT writing about it and just leaving the 2016 New Moons page and the writings of others (reblogs) as my proxy.

But, I changed my mind.  And then I found a body of work I had produced on this eclipse a few weeks ago.  No written work, mind you, but chart graphics from the time when I developed my analysis of the rather important Grand Quintile of August 28th.  That confirmed for me that I needed to put up what I had done in a post.

This Grand Quintile period we are in, from August 28th until September 11th, is particularly rare.  If you check the Grand Quintiles from 1800 to 2050 page, you will find most of them last a few hours or a day.  Exceptions exist, such as in 1809 and 1810, but they are just that: exceptions.  So is this current window.

This Solar Eclipse, a special type of New Moon, is a punctuation mark in this window.  It also corresponds to an Eclipse in September of 1997, which was an extremely important period for me personally.  I am left wondering what this one will bring me.

First, let us take a peek at the Kite pattern that  is present.  Kites are not extremely rare, but they are not particularly common either.  This one has the Eclipse, itself, at the focal point and Neptune in opposition (and Neptune is part of the Grand Trine that forms the body of the kite).  (Kites are always, inherently, built from Grand Trines, the pattern that is the namesake of this blog (and my internet alter ego).)  Some of us, likely many of us, are facing one of the most important opportunities of our lives.  We are at one of the most important junctures in our individual and collective lives.  The decisions, and followup actions, that we make (or not) are critically important to the results that manifest (or fail to manifest) consequently.  Negligence is a profound danger here.

Here is the chart of the Eclipse, filtered for that Kite pattern:

Solar Eclipse 2016-09-01 Kite (NM, Mercury Rx)

Juno and Vesta (both major asteroids) form the other points of the Grand Trine.  Juno brings issues of trust and intimacy to the forefront, particularly as they involve wives, sisters, mothers, and other female family members.  Vesta is about traditions and whether or not we follow and honor them or create new ones when old ones no longer serve us.

Here is the same chart, filtered for the Grand Trine instead of the Kite:

Solar Eclipse 2016-09-01 Grand Trines (NM, Mercury Rx)

We note that the opposition of the Eclipse to Neptune has not yet quite perfected, but will perfect soon with the annual opposition of Sun to Neptune on Friday.  Friday’s opposition has a Thor’s Hammer (energy, often in the form of violence or explosions) and a Yod (insisting that an important decision must be made).  You will have to make a decision in this period, and something or someone from the past (Mercury Retrograde) will be part of that decision.

This Eclipse also has a Thor’s Hammer (aka God’s Fist) present with all the “energy” (and DANGER!) that brings.  (Do be careful!)

We also note the presence of a Rosetta; we interpret that pattern as indicative of the important of short-term alliances and relationships.  Treachery is a very real possibility, and people (including major politicians) are likely to shift their positions and allegiances at this time.

T-Squares are present and amplify the energy (and danger) of the Thor’s Hammer:

Solar Eclipse 2016-09-01 T-Squares (NM, Mercury Rx)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This next point is particularly important: please note there are TWO independent sets of T-Squares.  This makes “handling” the sources of “irritation” difficult and more likely impossible.  We would not be surprised at all to hear about someone or something “blowing up” (or a mass shooting) in the next few days.  Since the Eclipse really consumes nearly the entirety of the African continent, we would not be surprised to see the event there.

Here are the Seventh Harmonic or “karmic” aspects:

Solar Eclipse 2016-09-01 7th Harmonic (NM, Mercury Rx)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note the presence of a triangular pattern of septiles composed of a septile, biseptile, and triseptile.  Chiron, Saturn, and Astraea are involved.  We would not be surprised to learn of a major lawsuit (or similar legal system involvement) involving either educational or healthcare systems (or both).  Frankly, we think there will be “hell to pay.”

We will stop there, but we cannot emphasize strongly enough just how important this window of opportunity is.  After September 11th, most of it closes.  All will be gone by Mercury Direct Station and the Autumnal Equinox.  By then, “the concrete will have set.”

Only a handful of New Moons have a Grand Quintile during the period from 1800 to 2050 (and Solar Fire did not count this NM as one of them though we argue that it is):

Grand Quintile of August 28, 2016

As we have written elsewhere, we are entering an amazing window of time.  Here is the basic chart for the Grand Quintile of August 28, 2016, filtered for the Grand Quintile:

Grand Quintile 1 2016-08-28 (prior to Solar Eclipse)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Here is what we have written about this window of time that begins with this pattern:

We are at the edge of entering a truly amazing period of time that starts “about now” (late Leo, circa August 15th and points forward) until some time in late September, possibly “about’ the change of seasons at the Fall Equinox.  Here is why it is amazing:

  1. A Grand Quintile forms on August 28th.  These are even more rare than the Mystic Rectangles we encountered a few weeks ago.  By itself, that would be enough, but….
  2. Mercury stations retrograde on August 30th (and, as of August 15th, we are in the “shadow” of the retrograde where we are already “feeling” some of the disruptions and shifts in our patterns that are yet to come).  (See, also: Mercury Stations and Ingresses for 2016.)  I would argue that the Grand Quintile of August 28th continues to be in effect.  BUT, how to use that massive influx of creative genius when Mercury is making a (retrograde!) station?  And we note that Mercury stations direct again on September 22nd, shortly after the change of seasons (Fall Equinox).  Clustering of events like this are a sort of “punctuation mark.”
  3.  We have a Solar Eclipse (New Moon, but a rather special kind) that affects most of the African continent and especially central Africa.  This Eclipse perfects on September 1st and has a number of other patterns present.  While I am not sure of this, I would not be entirely surprised to discover that some (many? most?) people of African descent are affected.  AND *SOME* geneticists argue that, to some greater or lesser degree, we are all descended from Africans (those of us who are of Asian or Caucasian descent being nomads who left Africa very long ago).  I would AGAIN argue that the Grand Quintile is still in effect.  (Why?  Because it “re-appears” on September 3rd and continues to September 11th.  That leads me to believe that the computer program that detects this pattern cannot see something that, currently, only human eyes can.)
  4. “Another” Grand Quintile (re-)appears on September 3, 2016 and continues until September 11, 2016.  Is it really that big of a deal?  YES!  If you look at our page “Grand Quintiles from 1800 to 2050,” you will see that about 200 of these occur in the 250 year time span (a quarter of a millenium).  BUT, they often occur in groups of two or three or more during a particular year and then not again for several years.  The next ones happen in 2020 (curiously, the next election cycle!).  For those of you who can “channel” this amazing energy, you have a window where you may produce some of the greatest creative works of your lifetime.  Please do not let this slip by you!
  5. Mercury Retrograde will move backwards across the Sun AND North Node (Karma) during this cycle and back across them after moving forward.  “Luke, it is your DESTINY!”  Whatever is the best use of your personal creative genius, this is the time to use it/them.

We hope to write some posts about this amazing window, but sometimes we get derailed by personal events, have computer problems, etc.  AND, we are getting older and crankier and sometimes we just do not get things out the way we would like.  The computer that we used to produce our posts and content was out of commission for MONTHs, and it is just now online again.  We will help if we can, but on the outside chance that does not happen, you need to HELP YOURSELF.  Make a list of your goals, especially your creative goals, and what you would like to bring to fruition at this time.  Is it photography?  Poetry, Songwriting? Sculpture?  Is your gift creative writing or maybe writing “how to” books?  How about computer programming or “big data” data science?  Are you a medical researcher or someone who might be writing a law review article?  Whatever it is, THIS is your window.  Every moment is precious.  Use it wisely.

And, as far as the political arena goes, expect to see nothing short of AMAZING and unprecedented events!

Here is what one commentator wrote about the Grand Quintile of 2004.

2016-08-02 New Moon in Leo (Mystic Rectangle and more)

2016-08-02 New Moon in Leo (Mystic Rectangle and more)

The New Moon of August 2nd is characterized by a Mystic Rectangle that begins July 30th and persists until August 4th.  Mystic Rectangles are comparatively rare, but we note that 2016 has an abundant supply of them.  (Click Here to compare other New Moons of 2016.  And click here to compare the Full Moons of 2016.)

Hillary Clinton also has a Mystic Rectangle in her natal chart.

Here is the chart of the New Moon, filtered to identify the Mystic Rectangle:2016-08-02 New Moon (Leo, Mystic Rectangle).jpg

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The question remains: WHAT IS a Mystic Rectangle?  A variety of comments have been made, but analysis of astrological patterns is not discussed much elsewhere (that I have found) and I am left with the impression that it is a late 20th Century / early 21st Century innovation.  (I am sure someone “out there” has evidence to the contrary.  But, so far, I have not seen it.)  Here are some of the links we have found:

These all say the same thing: (1) they describe the pattern (two oppositions tethered together by sextiles and trines and (2) it is a rare but benevolent pattern.  On #2, some variance exists with some saying that it is merely “helpful” while others describe it as “golden.”  We think that it may include important lessons learned since we have seen it tied to certain traumatic events this year.

In any case, a window is open containing one from July 30th until August 4th of 2016, and the Leo New Moon is contained within that window.  Since what we call a “Kite Key” is also present (two interlaced Kites that are often associated with a Mystic Rectangle), we think that a rare window of opportunity is present here.  We suggest you seize it.

This New Moon also has a Hele (long term alliances) and Rosetta (short term alliances that might include treachery) present.  We present the New Moon filtered first for the Hele and then again for the Rosetta:

2016-08-02 New Moon (Leo, Hele)

[Click to Enlarge]

2016-08-02 New Moon (Leo, Rosetta)

[Click to Enlarge]

We think these patterns mostly speak for themselves and need little explanation to regular readers of this site.  But we will recap: the Hele (Venus / Uranus + Mars / Chiron) is about long term alliances and choosing between one side or the other.  (For this reason, we consider both the Hele and Rosetta as “polarizing” influences that lead to conflicts such as The Police (as a collective) versus the Black Lives Matter movement (as a collective).)  In this case, one side (leg) is Venus / Uranus (unusual romances or innovative finance, take your pick) and the other is Mars / Chiron (the Wounded Healer (health, education) in alliance with The Martians (Warriors such as police, military, and similar)).  You can pick one side or the other but not both.

The Rosetta has Mars / Chiron on one leg (and we note that is RATHER similar to Mars / Neptune) and Astraea / Vesta on the other leg (law and lawyers aligned with traditions and “the way we have always done things).  We think, among other things, this might involve the privacy battles between, on one side, Apple and the EFF (and most of the tech community), and, on the other side, the NSA and FBI (and most of the police and intelligence agencies).  Needless to say, elements within each “side” do not trust other elements within the same side.  Presenting a “unified front” is tricky.

This complex and sophisticated New Moon has more to offer.  Upon filtering for Kites, we found what we call a “Kite Key.”  This is a pair of interlaced Kites, and it represents a rare and incredible opportunity for those with “eyes to see it.”  Here is the same New Moon, filtered for the Kites (and “Kite Key”):

2016-08-02 New Moon (Leo, Kite Key)[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that the Apex of this pattern is found in Vesta in Cancer: traditions and “how we have always done things” particularly with regard to home, oceans, graves (and graveyards), and anything having to do with water or any kind of “final resting place.”

The underlying Grand Trine is composed of asteroids, and if you do not use those then you can disregard much of what we are saying.  (But, we think most of the audience DOES want to here what we have to say.)  Here is the same chart, filtered for the Grand Trine underlying the Kites:

2016-08-02 New Moon (Grand Water Trine)

Finally, a Yod is present.  That means you MUST make an important decision.  You can choose one side or the other, but you cannot choose both.  Here is the same New Moon, filtered for the Yod:

2016-08-02 New Moon (Leo, Yod)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The last time we had a New Moon on August 2nd was 1970.  If you were born on that date (August 2nd of 1970) then this NM represents a special turning point for you.  We would argue that the same is probably true, also, for those born on August 1st or August 3rd.

Next is a list of Leo New Moons from 1950 until 2050.

Gemini New Moon 2016-06-04 (Grand Cross, Grand Trine, and Rosetta)

Gemini New Moon 2016-06-04 (Grand Cross, Grand Trine, and Rosetta)

We are writing this post a few hours in hindsight, a bit more than four hours after perfection.  We note that the annual Sun Square Jupiter aspect perfected earlier today.  (We will minimize duplication of the commentary on the earlier aspect.)

This is a dynamic New Moon (NM) and an important one, and much has been written by others because of the presence of a Grand Cross (GC).  This is a longer term GC which involves outer planets (notably Saturn, Neptune, and Jupiter), but the NM itself is (1) conjunct Venus and (2) forms the fourth leg of the GC.  Grand Crosses are relatively rare even when using asteroids (Chiron, Juno, Pallas, Vesta, and Ceres as well as others such as Hygeia and Astraea) or calculated points (North Node, South Node, Vertex, and so forth).  But this GC uses “real” planets, and that, by itself, is enough to make it a popular subject of discussion, interpretation, and speculation.

Maybe even more notable is that it is a mutable GC, and these invariably signify endings of some kind.  With a NM near the end of the Mecury Retrograde shadow, after the Direct Station, all are seeking to move forward and launch new projects.  AND you *CAN* do that, but these projects are more in the order of reaping what you have sewn.  Think of these projects as specifically being built on the past and what you have accomplished (or failed to accomplish).  This is your window to take stock and act accordingly.

And, on the outside chance you are uncertain about that, let me be clear: the upcoming Full Moon has a CARDINAL Grand Cross in it, and, oddly, that is about beginnings.  It tells us that the “cleanup period” between that Full Moon and the next New Moon is all about launching truly new projects.  (I am NOT saying you should launch during a waning moon.  I AM saying it is time you consider the option of COMPLETELY starting your life from the ground up and, absent that, questioning every assumption in your life about how things “have to be” with an eye to junking what is not working for you any more and doing things that are TRULY NEW in the most fundamental way possible.  This is your chance to TRULY change the train you are on.)

Whether all of us realize it or not, we are undergoing a large scale shift that is operating in many areas of our lives.  The current state of affairs of the United States Presidential election reflects that.  People feel strongly.  I will avoid becoming too political here, as I ordinarily avoid that, but many people object to the political system as it stands, and I mean many conservative people object as well as the more obvious liberal objections seeking “change.”  But what we see as election politics reflects deeper and more profound problems and issues.  And, they are not just in the United States.  This is a global phenomenon.

The late Jonathon Cainer, an astrologer whose work I followed, wrote of this a number of times when he spoke of the “bell” (Uranus Square Pluto) that would “toll seven times.”  Cainer was both a poet and a giant (as well as a bit of a character), and his voice will be missed.  (But we are happy that Oscar appears to be carrying the torch now.)  Jonathon Cainer stressed the point repeatedly: Uranus Square Pluto will bring HUGE global changes beyond anything we have seen (at least in recent generations if “ever”).  I agree.

By itself, that would be enough, and nothing more need be said.  But the fact is that we have an amazing series of patterns coming in the next few months starting now (and with the upcoming Full Moon).  Those of you who are astrologers know what I am talking about.  I see more of you writing about patterns this year, and I strongly suspect at least some of you have looked at certain pages I put up in late 2015, such as Rare and Absent Patterns in 2016 and, more generally, the 2016 Overview.  Whether or not you are an astrologer, if you like to do advanced planning to organize your life, then I suspect you should peek at those pages.

We also recommend you compare the Gemini New Moon of 2015 (last year) and the Taurus New MooooN of a month ago.  And by “compare,” I do not mean just peek at my pages.  Pull out your journal (you know the one, the one I recommend you keep, and, yes, I am chastising you like your mother would if you are not doing it, especially after telling you about FutureMe) and compare this month to last month, this month this year to this month last year.  You reap what you sew, but there MUST be some opportunity there.  This New Moon tells us that.  You must have “eyes to see.”

That said, and keeping in mind just how powerful the upcoming Full Moon / Solstice will be, we present the chart for the Gemini New Moon of 2016 with the Mutable Grand Cross (MGC):

2016-06-04 New Moon (Grand Cross)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

In case you were not already aware, an AMAZING number of squares are present in this chart.  Children born at this time will be nothing short of revolutionary.  I knew a woman, deceased within the past few months, who was born with a similar birth chart.  She was the most gifted numerologist I ever met (I confess, I simply have NO idea how Numerology works, but she was completely accurate), and she had a greater ability to anger people (most people, even delicate ones, said “p*ss off” people) than almost anyone else I knew. She made people ANGRY with her criticism!  I tolerated her barbs because I really liked her (and I knew she liked me), but most did not.  Nevertheless, she was a very prosperous businesswoman here in Dallas, and all those squares left an impression on me.  (And, at least from my vantage point, she will be missed.  I liked her.)  This chart looks like that, but maybe even MORE squares than she had!

Interpret that however you choose.  As mentioned earlier, many others have written interpretations of this:

Adventuring Inward on this New Moon

Asha Maria on this New Moon (Sidereal Interpretation, Signs are different)

Astro All-Starz on this New Moon (Madame Butterfly)

BUT, we would like to add that the Grand Cross is NOT the only pattern in this chart.  It is clearly the most striking of the patterns, but it is NOT the ONLY pattern.  We also have a Grand Earth Trine (opportunity!) and a Rosetta (alliances, but typically short-lived and a risk of treachery later).  We present the chart for the Grand Earth Trine (Pluto, Jupiter, Mercury) first.  We also note that Grand Water Trines are associated with the opportunity to make quite a bit of money, but we think this Grand Earth Trine (with Jupiter and Pluto involved) has that same ability, maybe even more so.  The next two weeks could be a rather large “money maker” for those with “eyes to see.”  Here is the chart:

2016-06-04 New Moon (Grand Trines)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Please do note that the North Node is involved in this Grand Trine, also, and that is all about “Karma” (again, reaping what you have sewn) as well as “hard work.”

Finally, we have the Rosetta.  Let us be clear: a Rosetta can accomplish a huge amount of work in a short time.  But the relationships are short-lived, and the potential for treachery exists.  We also note that one leg of the Grand Earth Trine is embedded in this Rosetta.  Here is the chart:

2016-06-04 New Moon (Rosetta)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The next two weeks will gave gotcha and glitches associated with the Grand Cross.  And you can focus on those, or you can focus on the opportunity that will come to you.  The choice is yours.

Eyes of Heaven

6-7 May

Use any power in struggles wisely during this lunar month. If someone comes at you with their anger and other harsh energies, allow their stuff to pass on by, without entering your body and emotions.

If you would like to dive deeper into the lunar cycle, the folks at Zodiac Arts may help you with that study. There’s a new mandala every month to color as a meditation on the energy being experienced. Here’s their site – Zodiac Arts

Readings by Yerevan

The New Moon on May 5th is 16 degrees of Taurus conjunct Mercury Retrograde, directly following Beltane, an ancient pagan holiday with Celtic origins which celebrates the union of the Green Man and Green Lady of the woods and of the wilds of nature.

A Grand Earth trine to Jupiter and the North Node in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn indicate that although the ground beneath us might feel shaky and we might fear that we are falling into it, the soil is rich and churning, with deep layers ready to reveal new sparkling facets of themselves to the surface.

The New Moon’s inconjunct to Saturn in Sagittarius we must be careful that we’re not taking on the burdens of others and identifying with them as our own. These burdens could be physical, emotional, financial, or spiritual. The point is that there is some area of stuck energy that needs…

Friday – Astro News
by Ruby

The Moon is in Taurus all day, and a New Moon occurs later this afternoon. This is a great day to be around the folks that make you feel safe and secure. Take some time to literally smell the roses today, because this energy is all about pleasing ones senses. Do the kind of things that entice you and that can bring you pleasure, like eating a good meal, soaking in a nice bubble bath, listening to music, or just enjoying a good emotional conversation with a friend. Don’t forget while attending to your own needs you should also be writing out the “Intentions” you would like to set today with this glorious New Moon!

This New Moon is really wonderfully placed for anyone who likes to do New Moon wishing and Intention Setting. Reason being it takes place on a Friday afternoon, which…
