New Moon 2015-10-12  (Thors Hammer)

The New Moon of Monday, October 12, 2015 (Tuesday, October 13, 2015 in UK and EU) contains a Thor’s Hammer (Fist of God) involving Venus, Saturn, and Uranus (retrograde).  While it is a period where important new ventures can be launched, a danger exists regarding violent / dangerous individuals and organizations (be careful!).

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

Uranus is retrograde, so that should make this a particularly interesting NM.  Also noteworthy is that this NM is occurring a few days after the Mercury Direct Station.  Still in the “shadow” period after Mercury Retrograde, we are likely still processing events from that period with consideration for the efforts needed to resurrect certain old but important projects.

Jupiter squares Uranus and Grand Cross for 2014

The planet to watch in 2014 is Jupiter.  By far it is the most active, with a number of tales to tell.  Ruling the legal system, universities and higher education, animals and animal welfare, and infidelity, Jupiter dominates the outer planet events of 2014 until late November.  (Late November and December has a new and different drama that prepares us for 2015.)  The most potent (explosive) of these is the Grand Cross of April 20th.

Here is a summary of the two squares (the second of which is part of the Grand Cross):

(1) Jupiter squares Uranus on February 26th.  This, and any activating New or Full Moons, sets the stage for the big events on or near August 20th.  Do not be surprised to see explosions, earthquakes, school shooters, etc. at this time.

(2) April 20th: Jupiter Squares Uranus and Opposes Pluto (on the same day!) with retrograde Mars in Aquarius completing the Grand Cross.  All of this happens close to 15 degrees of the four fixed signs (the points in the zodiac associated with the “Quarter Days”).  This is even more volatile than the first square.  Sun is on or near the point associated with the birth of Adolph Hitler.

(3) Particularly interesting are the interlocking Double Yod Keys of November 8th.  These occur with the Sun at 16 degrees (basically aligned with the points of the Grand Cross of April 20th) and the day after the Cross Quarter Day associated with Scorpio.  (We speak of the Cross Quarter Day as it occurs astrologically rather than by any particular tradition or ritual.)

Other activations in April and May show that this may be an “interesting” time for the financial markets.

News of the Death of Aaron Swartz

Aaron Swartz was an internet activist who allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself Friday.

Here is an horary chart cast of the arrival of news of his death:

Curiously, the question arrived at culmination of a full moon, one with an interesting pattern.

Chiron opposed the 8th (Sun on Asc), and Jupiter opposed Catastrophe.  Pluto is near the 4th house cusp (graves, final resting places), and the ruler of the 8th (Venus) is near Pluto.  Venus is also semi-square Chiron in this chart.  This Venus & Jupiter activity indicates that someone (maybe several someone’s) likely benefitted from Aaron’s death.

Uranus (Prometheus) has set.  Metaphorically, Prometheus is the bringer of light (insight, knowledge, genius), and he has now set (moved below ground).  Opinions may vary, but I suspect that we are all worse off for this loss.  The Founders of the United States were people like Aaron, and that kind of courage is needed to protect the rights of us all.

November 18, 2008 A Fork in the Road

November 18, 2008 at 6:21 am | Posted in Astrology, Predictions | Comments Off on November 18, 2008 A Fork in the Road
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Today is all about a “fork in the road.” A Yod, or “finger of God,” exists with the Moon in Leo and the forks shown by Uranus in Pisces and Jupiter & Venus in Capricorn. Leo is about leadership. This day affects leaders more than others, but it also brings out the natural leadership in all of us.

The fork between Pisces and Capricorn will force us to choose between the idalistic and the practical. Uranus (aka Prometheus) is in Pisces and brings us innovations in areas of art, music, poetry, and similar areas. Capricorn is about practicality. Venus is about love & beauty, but Venus is also about finances and building the practical. Venus can be especially about farms. Jupiter is about growth and expansion, in this case in things Capricorn such as large corporations and corporate leadership.

The choice will be between idealistic innovation and practical focused growth. No matter which choice we make we can benefit, but either choice will, at some point, leave us wondering what might have happened had we considered the other path. Inconjuncts, from which yods are built, are characterized by dissatisfaction.

Water Signs: Pisces, Cancer & Scorpio will tend to choose the innovative today.  Some Cancerians, particularly those who have birthdays currently opposed by Jupiter or Venus might choose the practical route.

Earth Signs: Capricorn, Taurus, & Virgo will tend to opt for the practical path.  Some Virgos might choose the innovative path, particularly if their birthday is currently opposed by Uranus.

Air Signs: Neither Gemini nor Libra will like the choices presented, but Gemini will be most productive with the innovative and Libra with the practical.  Aquarius will face both decisions the same as Leo: essentially split 50/50.

Fire Signs: Aries, like leader, would be wise to pick the practical.  Leo, like Aquarius, will have a dead center 50/50 choice.  “Things” are complicated for Sadge.  Except for the handful of Sadge natives born on December 17th or later, I’d recommend the practical.  I’d be willing to bet that Steven Spielberg is working on some particularly interesting project at this time.

Choose as you may; tomorrow is a new day.
