Saturday February 20th 2016 Week 08 (W08)

Saturday February 20th

This is an energetic Saturday, and you can “get things done.”  And, you will feel an urge to do just that.  Issues involving health, education, finances, and taxes come to the forefront.  For some people these will be issues with the police or intelligence agencies.  Take advantage of your sense of urgency and complete what you can.

Moon (Leo) opposes Mercury, Venus (Aquarius) followed by a quincunx to Neptune (Pisces) and a trine to Saturn (Sagittarius).  Of all the days this week, this might be the best one for “getting things done,” and oddly it favors fire and air signs (though the Sun is in Pisces and applying, ultimately, to Neptune and Chiron).  If we zoom out and look at Saturday and Sunday together, we could argue that a (very loose) Fire Grand Trine is present.

Venus (Aquarius) is semi-square Chiron (Pisces), and Sun (Pisces) is semi-square Pluto (Capricorn).  This creates quite a push to “get things done,” and issues of healthcare (or education) and finances (Capricorn) are part of the mix.  Mercury (Aquarius) semi-sextiles Neptune (Pisces).  Fire and air signs may be favored, but Pisces and Capricorn clearly have a voice today.  And Mercury / Neptune tells us that (some) people will tend to wax poetic (if not grandiose).  No “Mars Out” higher order aspects are in play, so look to the earlier aspects this week as well as the Vesta Quadrinovile Juno aspect tomorrow (a skill involving exploring “how we have always done it” and trust & fidelity issues).

Tomorrow remains very similar, and these two days should be considered together for some important project.  (Possibly a home improvement project, but certainly an important one.)

Mars Quincunx Neptune 2015-11-24

Today is a bit of a strange day, and we discuss it extensively on the related calendar page at Mystic Rectangles.  That said, this aspect will affect everyone in one way or another.  For some people, it will be a glitch and they will move on.  For others, it will be a glitch, but they will learn a useful lesson, either soon afterwards or later this evening.  For still yet others, it will make a mess of their entire day and little progress will be had because of the mess it makes.  At least to SOME degree, you can choose which one of these you prefer.

Libra (where Mars is located) and Pisces (where Neptune is located) will feel this strongest.  At the moment we are speaking of solar Libra and solar Pisces.  But you might be an entirely different sign, and if you have another planet (Moon, Mercury, Venus, etc.) within a degree of 7 degrees Libra or 7 degrees Pisces, then you will feel it rather strongly.  Anyone with a planet at 7 degrees of any other sign (actually, between 6 and 9) will feel it to some degree.  The rest of us will likely have a chance to watch the show from the sidelines.

Thor’s Hammers abound this week, and a Yod is in play later today (offering a decision) but the only pattern found in this chart is a slightly longer term T-Square involving Venus, Uranus, and Pluto.  We show the chart filtered for that T-Square:

2015-11-24 Mars quincunx Neptune

With that in mind, we note that this T-Square is closely related to the series of Uranus / Pluto squares that perfected the past three years.  That tells us that the potential for violence is still quite real and present.  Keep your wits about you.

Mercury conjunct Saturn (and square Neptune) perfects near midnight, and “things” change dramatically.  Learn the lesson you can from the messiness this morning (afternoon in the UK/EU), and you will be prepared for what you can accomplish this evening.

We also note that the Full Moon of November 2015 perfects tomorrow.  Also, note that this aspect involves outer planets or “generational” planets, so the effect of events today are likely to be longer term (at least two years).

2015-09-08 Mars Quincunx Chiron

While this perfects on September 8th, most people in the United States (and the Western Hemisphere) will feel this most strongly on September 7th.  It is an unpleasant aspect that leads to misunderstandings at best and accidents at worst.  We will see some family (and other) squabbles on this Labor Day holiday, and some “feelings” may be deeply hurt, especially near lunch time or early afternoon (Moon opposite Pluto).  Accidents have the potential to be serious, so be careful.  Here is the chart:

2015-09-08 Mars Quincunx Chiron

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Now is NOT the time to “work through” family issues; instead diplomacy and avoidance of “sensitive” topics until a more favorable time (maybe a few days from now) is recommended.  We note that Hygeia (health and healthcare) is also quincunx Ceres (feast/famine), so accidents (or other trauma) could be particularly expensive on this date, likely requiring a trip to the Emergency Department of a Hospital.  (Still calling it an “Emergency Room” when it is bigger than some small clinics?  Time to update your lexicon!  See, also: CDC Statistics on ED Visits.)

Doing something like this could get you nominated for the Darwin Awards.  (And, if you DO see someone doing something like that, then move back a “safe distance.”  Then move back at least that much again.)

We do note a LARGE amount of 5th Harmonic activity, so this might be a very good time to write down your ideas.  Development of poetry, lyrics, melody, and perhaps photography and video could be very powerful on this day.  But, again, practice diplomacy.

Here is the same chart, filtered for 5th Harmonic Activity:

2015-09-08 Mars Quincunx Uranus (5th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

You may note the triangular pattern involving Moon + Astraea / Pallas / North Node activity.  This indicates possible insights and innovations on how to heal some old wounds.  But, again, record the ideas (and plans) and pause to execute them at least one day.

In any case, if you are celebrating Labor Day today, please have a safe and healthy holiday!

Sun Quincunx Neptune 2015-09-30

We present the chart for Sun Quincunx Neptune, which perfects September 30th of 2015:

2015-09-30 Sun Quincunx Neptune[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note this is a bit of a “fly in the ointment” that rains on the parade of Mercury (r) Conjunct Sun on this date.  However you choose the energy of this day, a “reality check” is in order.

Mercury Trine Uranus 2015-08-02 (Yod)

Mercury Trine Uranus 2015-08-02 (Yod)

First of all, we would like to note that the Thor’s Hammer Key, Hele, and Grand Fire Trine from yesterday are still in effect.  See that analysis and recognize that most of it still applies on this day.

That said, Mercury perfects a trine to a stationary Uranus on a day when Saturn in Scorpio stations direct.  (The continuing mutual reception of Saturn and Pluto at this time is worth recognizing.  That will end soon, in September.)  It is a great day for creatives (writers, poets, photographers, dancers, and so forth) but it may also be filled with miscommunications and glitches.  The insight of genius can transform these “glitches” into a higher art form sometimes.

We have filtered the chart to highlight the Yod present.  Likely an important decision faces you on this tricky day filled with glitches, starts, and stops.

2015-08-02 Mercury Trine Uranus (Yod)

Mercury is quincunx Chiron, also.  This means sensitive issues may surface, and miscommunications may lead to hurt feelings.  Watch for that.  (But, if you cannot avoid it, then turn it into art.)

Sun Quincunx Neptune 2015-08-01 Thor’s Hammer Key + Hele

Sun Quincunx Neptune 2015-08-01 Thor’s Hammer Key + Hele

Saturday August 1st is either difficult or dangerous unless you know how to channel your energy.  If you do know how to channel your energy, you can achieve much today.  But, confusion and mixed messages may lead to anger and polarization in groups.  We see a pattern we have called a “Thor’s Hammer Key” in the past, and we present that version of the chart next:

2015-08-01 Sun Quincunx Neptune (Thors Hammer Key)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

That chart speaks for itself with what looks like a record number of sesquiquadrate aspects.

We see the potential for polarization in groups in (yet another) Hele:

2015-08-01 Sun Quincunx Neptune (Hele)

Grand trines are also present, but they are Grand Fire Trines (which tend to stir people to action):

Finally, we also have a strong and noteworthy t-square.  If this doesn’t blast you off the couch or out of the recliner, then likely nothing will!

Saturday will tend to be busy.  Just do not do anything rash!

2015-07-29 Mercury Quincunx Pluto

By itself, Mercury quincunx Pluto is frustrating and tempers can flare due to frustrations and miscommunications.  This one is worse; it has what we call a “Thor’s Hammer Key.”  (Two interlaced Thor’s Hammer patterns).  This is another potentially dangerous day that sets the stage for the upcoming Full Moon (Blue Moon).

Here is the chart, filtered for the Thor’s Hammer (God’s Fist) pattern:

2015-07-27 Mercury Quincunx Neptune

We will likely update this post a bit over the next day or so.  A number of patterns are in play, but we present the Mercury Quincunx chart filtered for the Yod that is in play:

2015-07-27 Mercury Quincunx Neptune (Yod)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The issue is about “feast and famine” (Ceres) and it could be literal (i.e. “should I go on a diet” or “should I start a new exercise program” or “I really want that piece of cake”) or more metaphorical (“what are the financial markets doing” or “should I start a new job or go back to school”).  The choices are Venus Retrograde (we are having to take a hard look at our values, and we may choose the famine option to preserve those values) or Astraea (Justice).  The problem is that this is associated with the perfection of Mercury Quincunx Neptune, and NO OTHER ASPECT introduces confusion into communications more than this one!

That means you need to decide, but you do not have all the facts, and you are not sure what is going on.  At best, it is a messy situation that you may need to revisit when Mercury turns retrograde in September.

Double Yod Key 2015-07-10

Double Yod Key 2015-07-10 starts early on July 10, 2015 in the U.S. (by 8 AM in the UK) and lasts until the end of July 11, 2015.

Like all DYK’s, the message is straightforward: you are facing a minimum of two critically important choices that must be made on Friday or at the latest Saturday.  Note that these precede the Sun/Uranus Square of July 12, and no matter which options you choose you will find yourself dissatisfied (and possibly upset on Sunday / Monday).  (The DYK is made of three “quincunx” patterns, and those are the patterns of misunderstanding, miscommunication, and ultimately dissatisfaction with the choice made.)

Here is the chart of when the window for this pattern begins:

2015-07-10 Double Yod Key

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The South Node is in the mix, and that represents “taking the easy way out.”  Just realize that “taking the easy way out” may not really be so “easy” this time.  Repeating old behaviors does not necessarily benefit you.  The best option is the one that is truest not only to who you are but who you are becoming.

In any case, you must act quickly because your options will likely become closed by Sunday.

Venus Quincunx Saturn 2015-05-10 (Mothers Day)

We find five (!) quincunx on Mother’s Day besides this notorious one which perfects in the early morning hours.  The ultimate aspect of misunderstanding and miscommunication, it colors the day of this holiday:

Venus Quincunx Saturn 2015-05-10

So try to avoid taking too seriously anything anyone says today, whether “good” or “bad.”  Chances are good that any misunderstandings will “come to a head” in a few days on May 14th or May 15th.
