Sun Conjunct North Node 2015-09-23

This annual event is particularly powerful this year as it perfects a powerful Kite pattern.  An amazing opportunity is available, but it will require some work due to an involvement of “karma.”

Here is the chart, filtered for the kite:

This remarkable pattern occurs on the same day as a rare Mystic Rectangle.

Overall, the weekend is relatively peaceful (punctuated with some wild ideas that are false hopes).  But, before we can reach that, we must process Mercury Square Chiron.  Just when you thought it could not get any worse, you are faced with the question: does change have to be this painful?

Here is the chart:

With this many squares in the chart, and the influence of the recent square of Mars to the Nodes, the answer (sadly) is “Yes.”  It is like lancing a boil, once done you will (eventually) feel better.  Again, mostly things are better after this for the holiday weekend.

Philadelphia Amtrak Wreck and Higher Order Aspects 2015-05-12

We are using a reported time of the accident of “just after 9 PM” set to 9:02 EDT.  What stands out to us is the very nearly exact TriSeptile aspect of the Moon to its North Node: Philly Train Wreck 2015-05-12 TriSeptiles

Other characteristics are in play as well.  Pluto in 2nd house tells us that this is an event that likely involves a large amount of “other peoples money.”  (Insurance; lawsuits)  Saturn rising and in the 12th suggests difficulties.  But, again, the Moon TriSeptile its North Node (Fate or Karma) is most noteworthy.  We also note precise TriSeptiles between Neptune on one side and Jupiter / Juno (which are essentially conjunct in Leo) on the other side. Also interesting are the 5th order harmonics, and we see two patterns composed of those that resemble the “T-Square” that occurs with 4th order harmonics (squares and oppositions): Philly Train Wreck 2015-05-12 5th order harmonics

We think that, curiously, this event made lead to certain important innovations in transportation safety.  One of these triangular patterns is part of a larger Quintile Kite in play that we have discussed elsewhere: Philly Train Wreck 2015-05-12 Quintile Kite

The Hard Rectangle discussed on the May 15th post, involving Mars Opposite Saturn, is already in play here, and we think a major contributor to this even.  (But, again, we think that the Lunar Triseptile was the precipitating aspect.)

Note that this pattern includes (1) the rising Saturn / setting Mars and (2) the 2nd house Pluto / 8th house Hygeia.  As we have said before, we think this pattern is dangerous.

New Moon of January 2015

We present, first, the New Moon chart for January of 2015, set in Plano and unfiltered (with regard to aspects):

2015-01-20 New Moon (Full, Basic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that this is a complex and active New Moon with many aspects.  The Moon/Sun conjoin at 0 Aquarius, a particularly potent point that follows similar new moons in recent months.  Before we go further, let us say this: this is one New Moon you will “feel.”  It will not come and go unnoticed.  At least one major shift will happen in your life near this date.

We note that another New Moon in Aquarius occurs February 18th.  That is similar to an astrological “blue moon” (second full moon in a particular sign), and occurs a few days after Mercury goes direct.  Expect to push forward at that time with new projects and ideas that come to you between now and then.

Picking “where to begin” is difficult, but we start by noting a “hard rectangle” pattern:

2015-01-20 New Moon Hard Rectangle (Basic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Pluto, Venus, Jupiter, and Hygeia are involved.  While each contributes, Pluto is particularly important because of its tight square with the north node (fate, karma), to be discussed next.

Venus and Jupiter are typically benevolent.  Hygeia puts a healthcare spin into the mix.  We expect the expected problems here, namely a flu epidemic that involves a strain that this year’s flu shot does not protect against.  (I am not making a major prediction; I am merely echoing a confirmation of what we already know.)  What might change with this new moon (NM) is that the mortality / morbidity rate may be a bit higher than “we” had expected.

Here are the squares and oppositions (“hard aspects”) associated with this NM.  We note that the Pluto/Node square is particularly tight (powerful) on this occasion:

We note that this Pluto / Node (Death / Karma) line particularly strongly affects the Middle East at this time:

Wonder how that will play out.

This NM has grand trines, and it almost has a kite:

Uranus / Juno / Pallas form this one, and we are not sure what to expect from that mix.  Uranus is surprises, Juno is trust issues, this source describes Pallas as “strategic command in both the warrior and the peaceful general.”  The North Node potentiates this mix in a “near kite”:

Some people will have great advantage from this New Moon.  Many will be compelled to action.

The West Indies are active and interesting with a Saturn / Jupiter (financial changes, probably favorable and possibly involving Wall Street in New York) crossing happening near Freeport, and Mars + Neptune lines passing through Puerto Rico (much change of some kind there!):

Cuba continues to be an active part of this mix as well.

The U.S. map is interesting.  A Pluto line passes through the U.S. but avoids most population centers (except Denver).  Baltimore, and points east, is highly activated.  Here is the U.S. map:

Here is the New Moon chart relocated to Baltimore.

Note that Mercury is near Ascendant, Saturn at Midheaven, and Jupiter on the Descendant.  This combination indicates certain kinds of highly precise operations of some kind, possibly financial operations.  Sagittarians with late November birthdays living in this region will be particularly affected.  So will mid August Leos and late January / early February Aquarians.

Here is the map for Europe and the UK:

Here is the map for Australia / New Zealand.  While the many lines mostly go through the sparsely populated interior, Mars and Neptune lines do affect Perth.  Tasmania is also activated:

Here is the ever complex Southeast Asia map.  We withhold commentary except to say that Indonesia is highly activated:

In summary, prepare yourself for a new adventure, and gather what you learn in this cycle for the next change of pace circa February 18th.

December 18 & 19, 2008 More Challenges Before the Solstice Arrives

December 17, 2008 at 1:57 pm | Posted in Astrology, Predictions, Weekends | 1 Comment
Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Thursday represents another day of “challenges” with the Moon conjoining Saturn and Opposing Uranus to make us re-examine the events of the recent full moon. Last Friday and this past Monday have something to contribute to the events of today, and we are not at all comfortable with it. More inconjuncts contribute to a notion that problems are resolved when they are not. Best to get some rest Thursday night.

Friday “looks” quiet which tells me that “other” things may be happening. Friday could be described as a “fated” day in which people will either have little control or feel as if they have little control. Sun is semi-square Venus, Chiron, and the North Node. Today is a harbinger of the Sun/Pluto conjunction Monday and the Venus / Chiron conjunction of Tuesday.

In practical terms, I’d treat this day as if it were void. That is, I might plan and plot, but I would be hesitant to execute.  Take note, though, of circumstances that occur and are beyond your control.  They may be important omens about your personal situation.

The Sun, Mars, and Pluto tell us that a major power struggle is “coming to a head.” Venus and Chiron tells us that “healing time” is badly needed. As I have mentioned on other occasions, this date is associated with deception.

A good use of this time, both practically and metaphorically, is to clean up and clean out. Moon moves into last quarter, and this is a time to discard the unwanted and unneeded to make way for the gifts that the Solstice and Winter will bring us.
