Sun Sextile Saturn 2015-09-23 (Mystic Rectangle and more)

Sun sextile Saturn is an excellent day for “getting things done.”  But, this is nothing short of an amazing day.  (We have great expectations for children born on this day.)  Why is it amazing?

(1) A Mystic Rectangle occurs.  These are both rare and incredibly fortuitous.

(2) An amazing 5th harmonic pattern occurs that greatly resembles a Star of David pattern

Here is this chart for the perfection of Sun Sextile Saturn, filtered for the Mystic Rectangle:

And here is the same chart filtered for the 5th order harmonics (quintiles and biquintiles):

Since, apparently, no name exists for this pattern, we will call it a “Quintile Star of David.”  (This is likely not a “perfect” version of the “Quintile Star of David” since that would require Mars Opposite Neptune in this case.)

These rather amazing patterns form on the same day as the Sun conjoins the North Node, forming a particularly powerful kite pattern.

Sun Conjunct Jupiter 2015-08-26

This happens once a year, every year.  It is USUALLY a window of good fortune, and that is what we expect on this date.  However, a yod occurs earlier in the day, and your ability to take advantage of this may depend on the decision you made earlier, before this aspect perfects.  Furthermore, Jupiter is in “detriment”  in Virgo and not able to perform as strongly as usual.

We also note the presence of substantial 5th order harmonics (quintiles and biquintiles), and we should the chart filtered for those:

2015-08-26 Sun Conjunct Jupiter (5th order harmonics)[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that the pattern we are describing has Mercury (communications and transportation) at the center (or apex) with Astraea (law and the legal system) on one side (or leg) and Pallas (innovation, particularly military innovation) on the other side (or leg).   Will be interesting to see what enters the news at this time.  Don’t be surprised to see that it involves a controversial technology that, once again, may be a further threat to our collective privacy.

On a personal level, this can be a very good time to launch a new project, particularly if you can finish it before the Full Moon perfects (August 29th) or, failing that, before the next New Moon (the Solar Eclipse of September 13th).

Mercury (R) Conjunct Sun 2015-09-30

Retrograde Mercury conjoins the Sun slightly past 0930 CDT (please adjust for your time zone).  This short window, from about 900 CDT to about 1000 CDT, is a time when an old project can be resurrected with brilliant results.  Here is the chart, filtered for the Kite present at this time:

2015-09-30 Mercury (R) Conjunct Sun (Kite)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Actually, when we filter for 5th harmonic aspects, we find a 5th harmonic aspect similar to a Yod that gives you a choice between (a) resurrecting the old project (Sun/Mercury on one leg) or (b) scrapping it and replacing it with a new brilliant solution (Pallas, innovation, on the other leg).  Here is the chart, filtered for 5th harmonic aspects:

Do realize that, whichever approach you choose, you may need to make adjustments after Mercury turns direct.  And a bit of a “fly in the ointment” exists in the form of Sun Quincunx Neptune perfecting on this date.  A reality check is in order, and you still might overlook critical details in the implementation of the ideas you generate on this date.

Lunar Eclipse of 2015-09-27 (Blood Moon 4 of 4)

Lunar Eclipse of 2015-09-27 (Blood Moon 4 of 4)

While the religious fervor is nearing fever pitch, this lunar eclipse (full moon) looks relatively uninteresting.  However, it IS an eclipse, and those are always strong punctuation marks to astrologers.  Also: we note that this occurs 9/28 in UK/EU and that part of the world.

We independently arrive at essentially the same conclusions, and completely agree with the analysis done by, Armstrong Economics: this Blood Moon is not “The End of the World as We Know It” but it does likely signal a major “shift in trend.”

As far as regular patterns go, only an ongoing kite pattern colors this particular eclipse:

2015-09-27 Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon, Blood Moon 4 of 4, Kite)[Click Image to Enlarge]

However, the chart does contain a fair amount of 5th harmonic activity (some of it interesting) and 7th harmonic activity .  We present the chart filtered for 5th harmonic aspects (quintiles and biquintiles) first, noting a pattern similar to a yod (but composed of biquintiles instead of quincunxes):

2015-09-27 Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon, Blood Moon 4 of 4, 5th Harmonic)[Click Image to Enlarge]

Mars (physical energy, sometimes war and violence) is connected to biquintiles to Ceres (feast/famine) and Vesta (tradition, but sometimes weird sex).  Ceres and Vesta are connected by a quintile.  All of this is about insights and novel ideas (think Mozart) about combining these three areas, and perhaps a choice between the Ceres issues (feast / famine) and Vesta issues (traditions and rituals), similar to a Yod.

A similar situation exists with 7th Harmonic aspects (“karma”):

2015-09-27 Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon, Blood Moon 4 of 4, 7th Harmonic)[Click Image to Enlarge]

Here we have Venus (love, beauty, money) at the apex, and Chiron (healing and teaching) on one leg and Ceres on the other.  Resolving “karma” involving these three is the core issue here.

So, if we see any issues from this eclipse, we suspect that they will deal with decisions that involve these higher order aspects.  A decision appears to be present: whether to stick with tradition (Vesta, doing things the way we have always done them) or taking a risk (Ceres, feast or famine).  I note that some people will end a relationship at this time (Ceres, the risk of feast or famine) while others will continue with what they know despite some dissatisfaction (Vesta, sticking with what we know).

Some have said that the unrest in Syria (arguably a civil war) IS central to the message for all of us at this time.  Chances are good that we will only be able to see that more fully in hindsight.  (Do note the 7th harmonic (karma) pattern similar to a Yod that appears to offer us a decision.)  We have some other observations about this eclipse posted on our sibling site Mystic Rectangles.

Sun Sextile Jupiter June 8, 2015

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Each year, typically once a year, the Sun will make a sextile aspect to Jupiter.  This means they are sixty degrees apart, exactly two signs.  (Some years this happens three times if Jupiter Retrograde becomes involved.)  Generally this is merely a pleasant and benevolent aspect for most people most of the time.

This year, however, a larger window of opportunity opens.  You may have recognized it during the Mystic Rectangle of June 7th (yesterday).  Today you can do something about it.  We urge caution with the Moon waning and Mercury Retrograde, but, even so, you just might be able to do something about it today.  (Be prepared for a few surprises along the way along with the need for a “re-do” or two as well.  But, if it is worth it, then do it.)

This window is built of Kites and Kite-like patterns.  Those are built with Grand Trines, and we present the Sun Sextile Jupiter chart with those patterns highlighted first:

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (Grand Trines)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sadge) particularly benefit at this time.  The Venus / Vesta / Saturn (Retrograde) configuration has huge promise but requires huge work and will definitely include the occasional “test” (setback).  “Things” will change when Saturn goes into Scorpio, and the going may get tough.  But, ultimately, this opportunity can be done if you stick with it.  A “traditional” approach is essential.

Fire signs also benefit from the Jupiter / Pallas / Uranus Grand Trine.  This is part of a Kite we will discuss soon.  Not as much work is required, but completely unlike the other opportunity it requires “out of the box” thinking (NOT traditional).  It is a huge project, and it might consume all of your resources.

Note that air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) can also benefit, but (if you are an air sign) the smart thing to do is to hitch a ride with either the most reliable fire sign you know (Venus / Vesta / Saturn) or the smartest fire sign you know (Jupiter / Pallas / Uranus).

Here is the same chart, but with the Kites emphasized:

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (Kites)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Note that, if you consider the Moon’s North Node (hard work), an air sign Kite is present as well.

We could stop here, and that could be enough.  But even more “kite-like” structures are present in the sky.  Although a bit redundant, we present those in the next two versions of the chart:

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (Kite, Almost (1))

[Click Image to Enlarge]

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (Kite, Almost (2))

[Click Image to Enlarge]

For at least some (possibly many), the focus of these opportunities are likely found in healing opportunities, as indicated by the Mars / Pallas / Chiron T-Square:

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (T-Square Mars, Pallas, Chiron)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Finally, did we mention the “setback” and the “re-do”?  You will face them if you choose the high road  and take the challenge.  These show in two Huber Learning Triangles:

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (Huber Learning 1)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (Huber Learning 3)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We present the 5th Harmonic aspects for those who use them (creatives: writers, poets, artists, etc.):

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (5th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The Moon / Venus BiQuintile especially favors those who work in tangible media such as sculptors.

Here is the 7th Harmonic (Septiles) version:

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (7th Harmonic)

Given the 7th Harmonic aspect between Jupiter (Leo, Direct) and Saturn (0 Sadge, Retrograde), we might see a little shakeup in the financial markets.  (i.e. Stock and Bond prices may become volatile.  Maybe a good time to “short”?)

Be aware that some of the work you do will have to occur after (1) Mercury goes Direct (fraught with its own perils) and (2) we have passed the New Moon.

Quintile Kite of May 27, 2015: Lance the Boil

May 27, 2015 at 8:48 am | Posted in 2015, Astrology, Higher Order Aspects, Patterns | 4 Comments

We present the chart for the Quintile Kite of May 27, 2015:

2015-05-27 Quintile Kite during Moon vc

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This Quintile Kite occurs during Virgo Moon v/c (void of course) along with a preceding Mercury/Mars conjunction (with Mercury Retrograde for overdue projects and issues) and Venus Trine Chiron perfecting later.  Mercury conjunct Mars often leads some people to say and do things they regret later.  But Mercury retrograde addresses overdue issues (“coming to a a head”) and Venus (in Cancer, home and family) trines Chiron (the Wounded Healer).

If you are up to doing it, today might be the day to “lance the boil” and clear the air of something no one wants to discuss.  Be prepared for anger and tears and sorrow, and avoid physical violence (of course!).  Do it as early in the day as possible, clear the air, and find time for the creative solutions (Quintile Kite) that can emerge from addressing this painful issue.  Then, move forward.

Just keep one thing in mind: tomorrow is very unstable and all hell may break loose.

New Moon May 17, 2015 in Taurus: Quintile Kites and More

We present the New Moon chart for May 17, 2015.  On the eastern coast of the United States as well as in the UK, Europe and certain other parts of the world this NM occurs on May 18, 2015.

2015-05-13 20_26_44-View Chart

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We present the chart initially with the aspects to the Sun / Moon emphasized.  We note that this NM is exactly conjunct Algol, as happened with the moon at the Vernal Equinox of 2010.  That heralded a series of disasters, including the WVA Coal Mine Explosion and culminated in the disaster of the Deepwater Horizon.

As we have mentioned previously, when discussing the recent Philly train wreck, a Quintile Kite is in play for some time during May 2015.  That means we are in an extraordinarily rare period that facilitates innovations and creativity.  Since Mars and Saturn are critically involved (their opposition perfected May 15th), these innovations do not come easily (i.e. possibly through disasters such as train wrecks).  The position of Saturn near a certain fixed star emphasizes this.  Still, this is a GREAT window for “creatives” (painters, poets, etc.)  It also means we might make real progress in terms of safety practices.

Horary charts are intended to “answer” a “question.”  Playing New Moon Jeopardy for a moment (here is the answer, an horary chart), we ask, what is the question?

2015-05-17 New Moon Quintile Kite (Horary)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note Part of Catastrophe, Part of Fatality, Part of Treachery, and Part of Imprisonment in play.  Sun and Moon form a New Moon conjunct Algol.  Mercury and Pallas aspect Hamal.  What question do you think this NM is answering?  (Comments invited.  Hint: the NM conjunct Algol is critically important!)

Other patterns are in play.  Noteworthy is the persistent Thor’s Hammer currently potentiating accidents and potential for violence:

2015-05-17 New Moon Thors Hammer

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This Thor’s Hammer (aka God’s Fist) is composed of Saturn (in opposition with Mars!) at the apex, Uranus on one leg, and Hygeia on the other leg.  This is a difficult window of time.  We might argue that the presence of Mars opposite Saturn at apex constitute (another) new pattern: a “Thor’s Hammer Kite!”  But, unlike a traditional kite, this is likely a rather unlucky pattern (unless composed of benevolent planets, and this one is not!)

We also find (yet another) Yod, telling us that an important decision is facing us:

2015-05-17 New Moon Yod Mercury Jupiter Pluto

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Retrograde Mercury is the FASTEST planet involved, so this is with us for a bit also.  And we will likely revisit the decision we made at this time shortly after Mercury goes direct.

More to come on this over the next few days.
