While many of you may have come to visit this site recently to read about the Full Moon of June 2, you need to know that the really powerful event this week is the Mystic Rectangle of June 7th.  It is in force from 7 AM CDT until about 7 PM CDT.  (8 EDT; 5 PDT).  This is an unusual window of opportunity that will allow you to recognize powerful insights and bring them to fruition.  (Use the time wisely!)

2015-06-07 Mystic Rectangle

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This is an unusually benevolent Mystic Rectangle composed of Sun, Moon, Jupiter, and Pallas.  Bright ideas will come, and they can be made to be reality.  With Mercury Retrograde and nearing its station, we offer that this idea may be one that is overdue or needed to be revisited, and full implementation may not be realized until after June 11th or June 16th.

Sun Conjunct Jupiter, May 2012

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Except in certain cases of Jupiter retrograde, the Sun conjuncts Jupiter once a year.  Jupiter has a 12 year orbit, and so it moves to a new sign each year.  This year Jupiter is in Taurus, and the Sun will conjunct Jupiter in a few days.  Although this is a fairly routine annual event, it is worth noting because it brings wonderful opportunities to many people.  And, I heard Lee Lehman at UAC ’98 say, in reference to Jupiter, “spectacular losses.”

That is true.  With the recent (and ongoing) sharp semi-square of Uranus to Jupiter (more properly Jupiter to Uranus since Jupiter is faster), some people will be spurred to make bad decisions.  You will have to evaluate your own circumstances to determine whether or not you should take that “big risk” that presents itself.

That said, I will provide a few estimates as to how I think the Sun-Jupiter conjunction, in process for the next few days (though about May 12th or 13th) will play, in general, for most signs.  (Remember, this is general and does not take into account your Moon sign or the rest of your chart.)

Aries:  Life has been full of surprises and will be for the next few years with Uranus in your sign.  (Uranus stays in a sign for about 7 years.)  The Sun-Jupiter conjunction will amplify the surprises.  This could be in “size” or frequency or both.  Your life could take on a bit of a whimsical and unpredictable quality; this could be a turning point.  Most of you will handle this well.  As is true with the other signs, most of you will have to make a stand on some issue during this window.  See if you can get a Taurus to do the work.

Taurus:  We are in a recession, but you have an opportunity for a big win.  However, Taurus can be slow to act, and many will let it pass by.  Hindsight is 20/20.  So, the fact is that most of you better jump on the opportunity while the window is open.  It will shut, and this one probably will not visit you again.  Be careful about others trying to take your advantage from you, especially Scorpio.  An Aries may want credit for the idea.

Gemini:  You are smart and fast, but you have a possibility for a mis-step here.  Pisces can irritate you, but stick with the positive side of Piscean energy here: poetry, music, photography, and selflessly (anonymously even better) helping others.  Watch out for the quick fix.  For you, “too good to be true” is probably good advice.  But, do take pictures.  P.S.  An allegiance with a Pisces might help you wrest the advantage from another team.  But, if a Scorpio catches you doing that….

Cancer:  Taurus exalts you, and this may be one of the best windows of your entire lifetime.  Friends can do amazing things for you in this window.  Some of you may invent brilliant things.  Consider hiring a patent attorney if you do.  Frankly, if you are smart you can let others scurry about while you reap the advantage.  Allegiance with a Scorpio could be smart.

Leo:  Taurus squares you.  The Uranus in Aries might save you, and it will certainly change you.  Frankly, this is a dangerous aspect for you.  Know everything about the price, total cost of ownership, before you buy it.  Whatever you choose, you must be decisive.  And, chances are good that there will be no turning back.  As usual, consider allegiance with Aries and/or Sadge.

Virgo:  Taurus trines you.  But, the unpredictable Uranus in Aries tends to irritate you.  Some of you will see major changes or shifts in your family.  This might bring big money to you.  In general, you will probably benefit.  You have some of the same problems as Libra.  You will tend to be dissatisfied despite the benefit you (might) accrue.  Maybe you need to drop some of the perfectionism for once.

Libra: Uranus in Aries opposes you and that forces you to be more of who you are.  That’s interesting since you are about balancing forces and delaying decisions until you have more information.  This one will MAKE you decide.  Failure to decide is a decision, and it might not be the one you want.  Be proactive.  Taurus inconjuncts you, and (similar to Virgo) you may be dissatisfied with the results no matter which option you pick.  But, do pick.

Scorpio:  Taurus opposes you.  You win big or lose big.  Most of you are smart planners and not so impulsive.  You are natural investigators, and you can use that much to your advantage in this situation.  Having a Cancerian ally could be very good for you.  If possible, do not have Virgo or Libra in your decision making; they cannot see the opportunity that you can.  Do realize that you do have a chance to be happy here if you are willing to work for it.  (That doesn’t tend to come easily to you.)  Follow the Boy Scout motto: “Be Prepared.”

Sadge:  Your problems are similar to Libra, except Uranus favors you.  Even if you stumble, even if you are a bit dissatisfied with the result, the “surprise” here is ultimately going to benefit you.  Try to take a long term perspective on this.  Avoid the temptation to buy a motorhome at this time.

Capricorn:  Read Cancer.  The surprise really irritates you, maybe more than anyone else.  But you’ll love the results.  You are not getting them the way you want, but you are getting them.  You’ll need to focus on the outcome rather than the method.  Avoid looking a gift horse in the mouth like a hypercritical Virgo might or waffling about an important decision like a Libra might.  It is possible to mess things up despite the fact that you are heavily favored here.

Aquarius:  All good for you.  Actually, it is outstanding for you, maybe the best.  Some of you will consider going back to school.  Leap on that.  Others will have their day in court.  You can win.  Still others should just buy a lotto ticket.  Although Taurus squares you, you can win big here.  You’ll experience some annoyance and discomfort, but the overall win is so big you should ignore the molehills.  Similar to Cancer, if a great idea or two hits, consider that patent attorney.

Pisces:  Just because the bank vault door is open does not mean you should rob it.  And, it will open for you.  Just be careful not to spend it before you get it.  Really, avoid the temptation to create a debt or spend unnecessarily.  The universe is very good at giving you expenses, so KEEP what you get if you get a win here.  You just might need it for a rainy day.  Open a savings account if you do not have one, and start filling it.  Note that this could be a situation where a Taurus will put you to work.  Is it a job that you want?  You’ll have to decide.  Avoid criminality or anything remotely similar.  Stick to being a saint, you can be very good at that.

All Signs:  If your moon is in a different sign, and you know where it is, read that too.  You will get a mix of both.  Only you live in your own skin, so you will have to adapt the interpretations to fit your own life.  Sometimes reading the others signs can tell you something about yourself.

Reading the sign opposite can be especially useful for some of you.  Also, try picking the same element.  (Fire: Aries, Leo, Sadge; Earth: Taurus, Virgo, Cap; Air: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius; Water: Cancer, Scorp, Pisces)

Also, depending on how old you are, you can look at major decisions, particularly career, travel, and finance, made during these periods:

June 28, 1999 to June 30, 2000
Mar 8, 1988 to Mar 11, 1989

The Double Yod Key of March 30th

March 21, 2010 at 12:44 pm | Posted in Astrology, BadDays, Predictions | 1 Comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

Why you need to really watch your mouth on March 30th.

What you say on Tuesday March 30th could have pretty serious consequences. And, if you are at all prone to “road rage,” then you better take a taxi, bus, or train.

Tuesday March 30th will have a series of “Double Yod Keys” that include a square of Mars and Mercury. By itself, a Mars and Mercury square can cause trouble. But with the Double Yod Key (DYK), mouth in motion before brain in gear can have lasting consequences.

Double Yod Keys, as a pattern, have only recently been recognized and discussed.  “Yods” are called “Fingers of God” and mark points where major decisions often must be made.  These kinds of decisions tend to persist. And, the failure to decide is (usually) the worst of all.  The parable of “Lot’s Wife” applies here: pick one and never look back.  With a Double Yod Key, two major decisions must be made. Actually, a third decision is made as well: of these two key issues, which is more important. (Be careful before you ask “who is it going to be, me or the dog?”)

A DYK always contains a square, and this one has Mercury (Communications) in Square (Conflict) with Mars (War and Fights).  Said differently, for many people this will be a dangerous time when they say or do things they regret.  In rush hour, this could be a particularly bad road rage incident.

Like any other energy, this can be harnessed productively.  But, the tendencies here are misunderstandings that explode into events with unintended consequences.  Chart + list of other DYK’s (Only the March 30th ones have the Mercury / Mars square) follows, with the March 30th periods in BOLD.

The East Coast of the US (particularly DC to Philly) picks up the Saturn energy here, but the rest of the US, UK, and most of Europe is generally unaffected.  (Of course, certain individuals will be highly affected.)

Globally, the main cities affected are Tokyo, Beijing, Hanoi, Darwin, and Central Australia (especially near Adelaide). I believe Delhi may feel some impact from this as well, and, if any major event occurs, India has the potential to provide leadership in healing afterwards. Here are the maps followed by upcoming periods of Double Yod Keys followed by analysis of two more patterns.

Quintile Kites

These are key periods for learning concepts and creative problem solving.  If you can set time aside to work upon your chosen problem (possibly the one you decided to solve with the advent and culmination of the recent equinox), this is a good time to brainstorm.  Save your action, if possible, for the Focused Yods (next).  Usable opportunities for CDT are in BOLD.

December 16 & 17, 2008 Windows of Possibilities

Tags: , , , , , , ,

Monday is so awful that I thought I’d better write the forecasts for Tuesday & Wednesday now instead of waiting for Monday to do that.

That said, Tuesday offers a superb window of opportunity for most signs but especially fire signs (Aries, Leo, & Sadge). The Air signs (Libra, Aquarius, & Gemini) can cash in on this to a lesser degree. The period starts with a Mars trine about 2pm EST and ends a little after 730pm EST. Obviously, if you are in the UK this is a nice evening to be had.

Salesmen are especially strong on this day, but buyers are ultimately favored.  If you aren’t a “fast talker,” then watch out for them.  But, do know that you can still come out ahead in a purchase because buyers are favored.

Earth and Water signs get a shot, too, but not until Wednesday. The beneficial period for Earth (Capricorn, Taurus, & Virgo) and (to a lesser degree) Water (Cancer, Scorpio, & Pisces) starts about 5am EST and ends in the early evening.

These reprieves from Monday end on Thursday, when the events of Monday come to revisit us.

Godspeed.

We saw a slightly reversed version of this energy “about” June 18th, earlier this year.  If you want to understand today, and the few days before and after today (roughly Wednesday through Monday), you need to closely examine whatever you were doing “around” June 18th of that time.  Of course, the key event may have occurred on the 17th or 19th, or 16th or 20th for some people.  You’ll find important answers by looking at that time.

Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces will find today, and this period, to be “interesting.”  For some, it will be irritating and annoying; for others they will find opportunity.  The opportunity may not be entirely obvious, show you have to keep your eyes open.  (The advice in the previous paragraph should be helpful.)

Mars and Uranus are interacting in such as way as to cause accidents and fights in the “low form” and intensely driven passions in innovation in the “high form.”  How you use that energy is up to you.  But, if you are at all a problem solver, this is your time to make things happen, particularly related to education, the courts, photography, video, poetry, or composing (music).

Mercury joined to Pluto has the potential to produce some very angry words, exacerbating the likelihood of the “low form” of the energy in the previous paragraph.  But, this energy, too, can spur a “turning point.”  Just be aware that your art or poetry made have a bit of an angry or energetic feel to it.  Paintings & prints with dominant reds and oranges are most favored.  Passionate music that speaks out against an injustice is favored for composers.

Sun and Saturn tell us that we must focus on the details.  Today is NOT the day to be sloppy in your efforts.  A mercury retrograde is lurking in January, so I’d wrap up key agreements and negotiations soon.   After this morning, buyers are favored.  A few good deals can be had in this holiday season.

This can be a very good weekend for shopping.

Hopefully you were able to benefit from the magnificent energy of the past few days.  Windows this benevolent are rare.  My tendency, later, is to want a “do-over.”  Of course, we do not ever really get a “do-over.”  But, sometimes, we can change the path we are upon.

If you are in the UK, you still have a window of opportunity.  But, here in the U.S., the moon becomes void about between 1030 and 11 am EST.  A particularly powerful LAST CHANCE occurs between “about” 10am and 1030am.  But, by 11am, kiss it goodbye if you haven’t taken action upon it and (ideally) completed it.  If it must be mailed, mail it by 1030am.

The “message in the bottle” must be launched by that time.

By 11am, we have entered the contemplative period of a void.  If you are smart, then you can harness this energy too.  Remember, this is a good time to clean up and clean out.  Oddly, sometimes lost objects turn up in a void, or just thereafter.  Tuesday looks good, too, just not nearly as good as this final window.  But, by Wednesday, “things” start to become “odd” again.

At UAC 1998, I saw the same lecture as Jim Shawvan. Jim has turned it into quite a treat while I simply “filed it away” mentally. The single thing I remember most about that lecture was how the moon could “performeth,” sometimes very well, during a void. Lee Lehman gave an example of a furniture store that she recommended open during a void. Contrary to what I would expect, or most of the audience for that matter, the store “performeth” rather well and had a large sale the afternoon it opened. ($40,000 in furniture to a single customer, if I recall.)

Lee, herself, gave credit to William Lily (a famous astrologer in the 1600’s who was arrested for predicting the Great Fire of London). Lilly famously said, that the Moon “performeth somewhat” at these times.

That said, although I love the story, I still don’t quite drink the Kool-Aid. I’m rather skittish about voids. I won’t belabor the point. But, what you think about Monday depends on who you believe. Moon is in Cancer, and void from about 8am EST to about 4pm EST (when it enters Leo).

Jim says the Opportunity Period continues (from Sunday) until about 3:30 EST. Personally, I don’t like voids and I would say to lay low and clean house (especially) on Monday. You, dear reader, get to pick.

But, before you do, consider these two things: (1) does WATER favor you personally? For the furniture store to make $40K, someone had to give it up. Was it a fair trade? I don’t know. If you find your strengths in Fire and Air, then this probably doesn’t favor you. (2) Void Cancer Moons are famous for causing bitter lasting resentments that lead to blood feuds. And, often these resentments are due to misunderstandings or miscommunications. Do you want to take the risk?

If you are in the UK or Europe, this doesn’t affect you until late afternoon or early evening. For you, this day could be especially productive, especially Moon Trine Sun. Moon Trine Sun is a very good time to lock down agreements, make relevant purchases, and so forth. But again, ask if water favors you. For Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn, this time will favor you. For Aries, Leo, Sadge, Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius, it may not. Especially, Aquarius.

Against all of this is Mercury Square Neptune. Both Scorpio and Aquarius may feel a bit rough this day. That leads me to add that this might tie into the Scorpio / Aquarius aspect that will re-ignite in February, as discussed in an earlier post.

(Okay, I know I contradicted myself about Scorpio.  Maybe we don’t really KNOW what happens with Scorpio today.  I think it is a good day, especially for them, to relax and take it easy.  This assumes, of course, that a Scorpio actually CAN take it easy.)

Those who overindulge in alcohol and drugs would be at risk with this Mercury Square Neptune aspect, as would those easily guiled by the scammers of the world. So, be careful if the deal is a bit TOO good to be true.

And, of course, Mercury / Neptune great favors the inspiration of poets, photographers, and movie makers.

Most astrologers concentrate on what their readers want to hear.  I suppose that I should do that, but for a moment I won’t.  I’m going to complain that, for me personally, the energy has really been poop for about a week, and I think that will continue with Mars’ entrance into Sadge.  Okay, enough of that.

Mercury sextiles Uranus about 0130 EST, just after midnight EST.  For many, this will be a source of brainstorming although Mercury is in silent Scorpio so the brainstorm might be muted.  I think the police will have a “field day” tonight.  So, this is a good time to stay home and write down your ideas.

Jim Shawvan, in the Daily Planetary Guide, shows this as a prolonged “Opportunity Period.”  Moon in Cancer forms a Grand Water Trine with Mercury and Uranus.  Jupiter in Scorpio interacts now in what some call a “Kite.”  For at least some, today can be a day of immense prosperity.  I agree with Mr. Shawvan’s commentary that today is a day to use “intuition rather than logic to obtain sought after answers.”
