March 18th through 19th of 2020: Sun in Pisces, Anaretic and Saturn in Capricorn, Anaretic

This is easy to miss; I almost did.  As such, this entry is later than I would like (i.e., we have entered the 24 hour period as I write this).

The anaretic degree of any sign has been discussed at length.  Specifically, it is the final degree of a sign before a planet moves into a new sign.  Outer planets (capable of retrograde) may cross this region several times.  Cafe Astrology has an excellent explanation of the anaretic degree.  I will not duplicate their work except for a modification.

My original understanding of the anaretic degree came from a presenter at UAC ’98 (I think maybe Carol Wiggers, a William Lilly expert).  She sold me on Lilly.  While my depth of understanding is not “deep” in the ordinary sense of the word (except maybe for Lewi, who I read and re-read), my favorite astrologers are Grant Lewi, Dane Rudhyar, William Lilly, and Anthony Louis.  Of these, only Louis is still alive, and he has a WordPress blog!  Indeed, I have reblogged some of his most excellent content.

So, my point about the anaretic degree is this: if I understand Lilly correctly, he treated the final three degrees of a sign as “fated.”  Free will might exist in other areas, but not in the final three, and especially not in the “anaretic” (or final) degree.  Cafe Astrology, on the other hand, portrays the degree as “indecisive.”

The two viewpoints are not mutually exclusive (one could be indecisive because “fate” is actually driving the decision), but they are not necessarily the same, either.  The analysis you are reading is based on this understanding of mine.  (Lilly also called the first three degrees “too early to tell.”  While Lilly strictly applied it to horary, I apply it to other areas and, in my opinion, it works.)

Let’s get started.  Here is a head’s up of my main points:

  1. The five point stellium is obvious and does not differ significantly for the charts of entry of Sun into the anaretic degree (the entire focus of this entry) for charts for New York, Los Angeles, or Plano (my location). And, none of the regular patterns we look at (T-Square, Grand Trine, Grand Cross, etc.) are present in these charts.
  2. The most important thing is that BOTH the Sun AND Saturn are in anaretic degrees during this period.  (That is unusual.)  Specifically, the Sun is in the anaretic degree of Pisces (possibly the most powerful of all anaretic degrees since it is truly about endings) and Saturn is in the anaretic degree of Capricorn (its home!).  Saturn MUST make a statement of some kind before it leaves home.  And the Sun is in the same position as we close out one astrological year and start another.
  3. A triangular fifth harmonic pattern exists.  I identify this will little commentary, preferring that others reblog my work and add their own commentary.
  4. A triangular seventh harmonic pattern exists.  Again, I offer little commentary for the same reason as previous.
  5. I offer a number of maps.  While all are interesting to some greater or lesser degree, only three are truly compelling: (1) Western Canada (which places both Saturn and Pluto on the Fourth House Cusp, sometimes called either the “final resting place” or, more explicitly, “the grave”); (2) China (and that would seem obvious, but seeing the astrological maps confirming it is noteworthy) and (3) the UK (again, obvious based on what is happening there but, again, seeing the astrological maps confirming it is noteworthy).
  6. The other maps DO have stories to tell, just not quite as much as Canada / China / UK.
  7. I think this set of charts might tell us more about what happening than the Vernal Equinox charts..  (But, the Vernal Equinox charts, via the Thor’s Hammer pattern, hint that some serious “unrest” could be facing us.)

Fifth Harmonic Aspects

[Click to Enlarge]

The 5th harmonic connections of Mercury (communications and transportation), Venus (values and finances and sometimes health), and Astraea (law and legal matters) foretells possible innovations emerging from the coming difficulties.  But Mercury ties into the Thor’s Hammer, so difficult lessons may face us first.

Seventh Harmonic Aspects

[Click to Enlarge]

The connection of Juno (trust and betrayal), Saturn (often difficult and painful lessons), and the North Node (“fate” or “karma) using septiles (high order lessons involving karma that CAN produce breakthrough insights) seems to foretell the Thor’s Hammer of the coming Vernal Equinox.

United States Map

At least four different sets of lessons face the United States, varying by part of the country.

Canada Map

[Click to Enlarge]

Western Canada has Saturn and Pluto on IC (Fourth House Cusp) lines; this location (Fourth House Cusp) is sometimes called the “Final Resting Place,” or “the grave.”

United Kingdom

[Click to Enlarge]

UK is hit by so many lines that interpretation appears to be difficult.  But, it looks like a rough ride for them.  Since we already know that, the astrology is merely confirming the obvious.

Australia and New Zealand

[Click to Enlarge]

Similar to the UK, one of the coasts of Australia is hit by a cluster of lines, a sign of challenges.

Europe

[Click to Enlarge]

The EU is too complex to cover in a single entry.  This can be viewed as “homework” or, alternatively, someone else might choose to produce an analysis.

China

[Click to Enlarge]

Similar to the UK and Australia, a large number of lines go through China.  Again, this simply tells us what we already know.

Japan

[Click to Enlarge]

Japan faces complex and sophisticated lessons.  What interpretation?  Unclear.  But do not be surprised if Japan is the one to develop a cure or vaccine.  The multiple crossings tell us of sophisticated thinking about this thorny problem (Coronavirus, Covid19).

India

[Click to Enlarge]

Two DISTINCTLY different regions and approaches.  SOME of the ingenuity of Japan is seen here, also.

Southeast Asia

This is merely a “zoomed out” viewpoint of other maps (China, India, & Japan).  However, it could facilitate analysis of other regions.

 

Jupiter Square Saturn 2016-05-26

Jupiter Square Saturn 2016-05-26

First, you might want to peek at our analysis of this aspect on March 23, 2016 and August 3, 2015.  The perfection of today’s square is the third in a three party sequence, and we will not see a similar pattern repeat until 2024 / 2025.

Before we address the regular patterns, we should note some remarkable fifth harmonic activity.  Two triangular patterns composed of fifth harmonic activity are present.  One is formed by Juno (in Scorpio; trust v. betrayal, wives, sisters, daughters) at the apex and Sun in Gemini on one leg and Chiron in Pisces on the other.  This Jupiter / Saturn square has this particularly powerful pattern in play.  Jupiter/Saturn aspects are associated with changes in the financial markets, and we note that issues of trust (Juno) have become important (if you do not know this, then you need to watch “The Big Short” and “Money Monster“).

The other triangular pattern has Uranus at the apex, Mars on one leg, and the North Node on the other leg.  As with the first triangular pattern, each leg is a BiQuintile aspect (144 degrees) with Mars / Node separated by a quintile.  We can expect surprises.

All of this fifth harmonic activity signals the potential for  creative breakthroughs and genius level solutions, possibly to problems in the financial markets.

Here is the chart for perfection of Jupiter square Saturn, filtered for fifth harmonic aspects:

2016-05-26 Jupiter Square Saturn (5th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Seventh harmonic aspects are also active (not quite as active as fifth harmonic), and we present the same chart filtered for those:

2016-05-26 Jupiter Square Saturn (7th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Sun, Ceres, and North Node in a triangular seventh harmonic aspect tell us that some “karma” may need to be considered at this time, and that karma especially deals with feast and famine (literally, in terms of food, and metaphorically, in terms of finances).

The more ordinary patterns (if you can at all consider them that) are a Kite (opportunity), Hele (stable long term alliances), Rosetta (unstable long term alliances), and a Thor’s Hammer (aka God’s Fist, and an indicator of possible danger or violence).

The kite, combined with the fifth harmonic patterns previously described, tells us that an amazing opportunity is available at this time:

2016-05-26 Jupiter Square Saturn (Kite)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

One variant of the kite has Jupiter / Neptune, Mercury, and Pluto in the formation (and includes the current and ongoing Grand Earth Trine in it).  Let’s be clear the opportunity for someone to make quite a bit of money exists here.

The other variant tells us that the Nodes are present (instead of Jupiter / Neptune), and hard work will be necessary and the lure of “easy money” will be strong.  We offer this advice: be careful.  Financial markets are typically “zero sum games” (at least in the short term), and for someone to “win” someone else must “lose.”

The Hele represents both the opportunity (and need) for long term alliances, especially to take advantage of the opportunity:

2016-05-26 Jupiter Square Saturn (Hele)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The Rosetta is a bit more thorny: it represents short-term allegiances (and the potential for betrayal from a long term perspective).  Hele and Rosetta TOGETHER always send this message: “pick your friends carefully!”

2016-05-26 Jupiter Square Saturn (Rosetta)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Finally, we have the Thor’s Hammer (God’s Fist).  Extreme behavior (including the potential for violence and/or explosions) may be present the week of the perfection of this aspect:

We will not present the “long term analysis” information in this post since that would duplicate the work already done here.

Thursday February 18th 2016

Thursday February 18th

As you know from yesterdays interpretations, the Sun is void.  If you need to “wrap things up,” particularly Aquarian type things (computers, internet, social groups, and so forth), then do so, but do know that a “re-do” may be in the works.  Aquarian anything tends to bring surprises, so you may never “see” the basis of this re-do.  When it does arrive, it will force a shift in your consciousness (sometimes a painful one for earth signs such as Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo).

Mercury sesquiquadrate Jupiter does mean that you have the energy to push forward, and in some cases you should do so even knowing that a re-do might be needed.  Chiron is novile Pallas, so we learn a powerful skill involving the question of how to get things done (Pallas, the warrior goddes of strategy) and healthcare or education (or both).

Today is very Mercurial.  Mercury septile Saturn (attention to detail and hard work can help us release some “Karma” by helping others), Mercury undecile Neptune (another “helping others” aspect), Mercury quintile Uranus (brilliant ideas, especially regarding issues involving communications and transportation; very good for writers and speakers), and Mercury sesquiquadrate Jupiter (a sort of amplifier of anything, and it is usually benevolent); all four of these aspects are present today.  Again, today is Mercurial.  (That also means WATCH YOUR TEMPER.  And, given Mr. Trump’s Mercurial nature (he is a solar Gemini), we would not be surprised to hear an important announcement from him on this date.)

Arguably we have a (VERY loose) yod, Moon to Mercury / Saturn, and you may have to make a significant decision during the Sun void period.  Later, after the Yod (and decision), Moon (Cancer) forms a T-Square with Uranus (Aries) and Pluto (Capricorn).  This pushes us to act, even though it may be against our better judgment during the Solar void.  In a sense, this is very much a “free will” time in which you will be completely responsible for the consequences of your decisions and following actions.

Yesterday:

Wednesday February 17th

This is another day where we feel an urgent push to “get things done.”  Venus and Mercury have both entered Aquarius, and Mercury semi-squares Chiron while Venus semi-squares Saturn.

Moon (Gemini) trines Sun (Aquarius) and goes void at 10:37 AM CST.  These are typically benevolent aspects (Moon/Sun trines) but something may require a re-do some time after the Moon enters Cancer at 1:24 PM CST.  Quincunxes soon follow (Moon to Mercury, Venus), and achievement of goals becomes even more difficult than during the void in the morning.  This is a good time to slip out of the office and go shopping for minor office supplies if you are compelled to “do something” this afternoon.

The Sun will soon move to Pisces (February 18th @ 11:33 PM CST), so some projects may have to wait until after that (February 19th or later).  This is not a “bad” day, but at times “things” might be “irritating.”  A subtle high order aspect between Vesta and Chiron may bring into questions issues about traditions (“how we have always done it”) and healthcare or education (or both).  A similar high order aspect between Pallas and Astraea may bring legal issues to the surface.

Thursday January 28th 2016

Thursday is a curious day in which we begin to feel a shift or see a turning of the tides.  Lunar aspects are nearly absent.  Major aspects are totally absent.  Higher order aspects tend to be influential and set the stage for a very “energetic” weekend.  The only conventional aspect is Sun semisextile Neptune, ordinarily a routine (annual) mild aspect that is typically overlooked.  You will feel it today, and it will tell you to both look to the future and to think of those less fortunate than yourself.  For some people, this is a good day to write a will or engage in similar estate planning.  Thinking of a future without yourself, and how your life can benefit those left behind, is a good use of this day.

Venus quintile Chiron confirms this.  Quintiles are about innovation, and Chiron is about teaching and healing and especially healing by means of teacher.  Mentor relationships are important today, and that dovetails well with the Sun semisextile Neptune aspect.

Sun is novile Chiron, and that means we can learn an important lesson or skill as we reach out to help others.  Venus is biseptile Jupiter, again emphasizing a “karmic” feel to all of this.  A late night Venus square brings a rough spot, but it will pass as we move into the ongoing powerful issues to be addressed this weekend.

Monday January 25th 2016

Monday, Mercury moves Direct.  This dominates the day.  Moon remains v/c from yesterday until 9:46 PM CST.  This is a difficult day to get things done for most people.  Glitches and re-do’s predominated.  If you can take the day off and rest and relax that is a great idea.  If not, proceed carefully and double check everything.

Outside of Mercury Rx and Moon v/c (which nearly consumes us entirely), the day has a number of subtle aspects that are difficult to interpret.  If you are a student of astrology this is THE day for you to study the “Undecile” aspect because it occurs in FOUR variations today.  Two of those involve the North Node (aka “Karma”; the Vedic astrologers call this “Rahu” and accord it a strong degree of “respect” for its ability to “clear away” what is no longer needed), and Sun / Saturn  in a Septile also emphasizes Karma.  Sun Quintile Uranus can bring us smart, maybe brilliant, ideas, but almost certainly this is not the day to put them into action.  Save that for at least a few days, better yet after the next New Moon.

We find particularly interesting that the first two episodes of the X-Files reboot straddle the Mercury Direct Station.  Chris Carter has gone on record claiming that they took a “13 year commercial break.”  That seems both true and appropriate.

Critics inevitably dislike changes to successful formulas, but we agree the that “updates” to match current times are nothing less than essential.  We find it particularly interesting that important elements of the reboot parallel the Internet world and our collective distrust of “mainstream liberal media.”  We hope the miniseries fares well, at least well enough that we see another set of episodes next year.

Aliens or not, Mulder and Sculley provide a metaphorical voice to our collective distrust of the government in a medium that is dominated by the likes of “NCIS” (ugh!) and “Blue Bloods” (ugh!).  Except possibly for “The Good Wife,” Mulder and Sculley provide the only such voice.

Sun Sesquiquadrate Neptune 2015-10-15

This is the kind of day where you feel you “must do something about it,” but you are not certain what “it” is or what “must be done.”  Maybe very good for work on writing a song or poetry or working on a painting or video, but disconcerting for many of us, particularly in the area of relationships.

Even worse, the Moon is v/c in Scorpio all day.  That means you feel the pain and need to change (Scorpio), but your attempts to solve the problem either fail (“nothing will come of us”) or are oddly perverse in their results.  This is a tough day, unless you use it for housecleaning and introspection.

Sun Sesquiquadrate Neptune 2015-10-15 (5th Harmonic)

[Click to Enlarge]

We do note TWO triangular 5th Harmonic patterns, making this an excellent time for “creatives” to work (even if you do not “finish” it).  Bright ideas and brilliant insights can come at this time, so write down whatever comes to you even if it seems a little crazy at the time.

Some 7th Harmonic aspects are in play that tell us that some of us will be dealing with “karma” on this day, and you may feel a need to “set things right” or “make amends.”  Just make certain to obtain feedback from a trusted advisor to be clear that you do not make things worse.  (If in doubt, leave it alone.)

Astraea enters Leo with heavy 5th and 7th Harmonic activity 2015-09-24

Astraea enters Leo on September 24th.  Associated with law, the legal system, and justice, Astraea should be strong in this sign.  Here is the chart, filtered for aspects to Astraea:

2015-09-24 Astraea enters Leo

What makes this chart particularly interesting is the higher order aspects.  5th Harmonic aspects show two interlaced triangular patterns of quintiles / biquintiles that resemble a “Star of David.”  Here is the chart, filtered for those aspects:

2015-09-24 Astraea enters Leo (5th Harmonic)

Those 5th Harmonic patterns (important choices to be made about creative solutions) are a bit amazing, but also present is a triangular pattern of 7th Harmonic aspects (“karma”):

We hope your awareness is high enough to “do the right thing” when the opportunity presents itself, possibly several of those opportunities, on this rather amazing day.

As an aside, any child born on this day will have truly amazing potential.

Hygeia Enters Virgo and Squares Saturn 2015-09-19

Hygeia (health, healing and healthcare professions) enters Virgo (arguably its home) on September 19th and almost immediately squares Saturn at 0 Sagittarius.  Both Virgo and Sagittarians will likely “feel” this day, but so will Pisces and Gemini.  This is especially true for those who birthdays (Sun or other planets) are near the “cusp” including late Leos, Scorpios, Aquarians, and Taureans.  (Birthdays a few days before or after February 18th, May 21st, August 23rd, and November 22nd).

Here is the chart for entry of Hygeia into Virgo:

2015-09-19 Hygeia Enters Virgo

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Health and healthcare issues are likely to be prominent on this date, particularly for those with birthdays “near” the dates previously mentioned.

Here is the chart for the square:

2015-09-19 Hygeia Square Saturn

We note significant 5th Harmonic activation at this time.  A 5th Harmonic pattern resembling a Yod is in play, and we believe that this represents an opportunity to choose between two alternative innovative solutions that present on this date.

Here is the chart of Hygeia entry into Virgo, filtered for 5th Harmonic aspects:

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!
