Mercury conjunct Saturn (with a Yod and more) 2015-11-24

Late in the U.S. on November 24th (and in the early morning hours for the EU/UK), Mercury conjunct Saturn perfects.  We note that Saturn and Neptune are so close to perfecting their first square, that Mercury square Neptune perfects only two hours later (after midnight in all time zones except PST).  Therefore, both should be discussed.  And, a Yod is in play, the Moon is at almost exactly 170 degrees from the Sun (with the Full Moon of November 2015 perfecting the next day), and a number of other patterns are perfecting and dissolving on the 24th and 25th.  We show this chart filtered for the Yod in play at time of perfection:

We note that the apex of the Yod is found at the South Node, associated both with old, well worn habit patterns and “taking the easy way out.”  It is “doing things the way we have always done them,” and it is a bit like Vesta.  However, the South Node is also about a failure to make progress.  One leg of this yod ties to Juno (wives, sisters, and women in similar roles as well as issues of trust and betrayal) and the other leg of the yod ties to Astraea (law and the legal system).  If you have been treacherous with someone, are you going to make amends with them, or are you going to do battle with them in the legal system?  Please do note that you will have a strong tendency to do whatever it is you have done in the past, and doing something different may prove difficult despite the idea, “in theory,” that you have a choice.

That said, the actual aspect, Mercury conjunct Saturn, is rather famous for being able to complete detailed and meticulous work.  But Saturn is near perfection of a square to Neptune, and this means that Mercury square Neptune perfects within a few hours.  In a natal chart, Mercury square Neptune tends to be associated with alcohol and drug abuse.  It can be associated with lying and deception.  But it is also a superb aspect for writing poetry, lyrics, possibly fiction, photography, and videography.  If you find it difficult to sleep tonight, maybe you should review the detail work you wisely did before perfection of this aspect and look for the poetry in it.  Failing that, simply write some poetry or maybe perform some creative photography.  This is a good window and a good use for such things.  Moving beyond the messiness of Mars quincunx Neptune earlier in the day is a worthwhile endeavor, especially if you have learned the lesson you needed to learn and can move forward.

Keep in mind that the Full Moon perfects tomorrow, and if you possibly can you want to bring to a close the important steps in any project you are trying to grow at this time.

Saturn Square Neptune… the Dissolving of Egotism

So I couldn’t wait for Mars to move off his Conjunction to Jupiter on Friday and Saturday (expanded/Jupiter nervous energy/Virgo for action/Mars) as I was wanting to get to the meat of a major Transit that is just really beginning, again, to be felt in earnest: Saturn in Sagittarius Square Neptune in Pisces. On Mar 15 of this year, Saturn Stationed Retrograde at 4:56 Sagittarius just inside a 3 degree orb to Neptune at 7:54 Pisces. Events near that time were a foreshadowing of what is come as they exact 3 Squares over the next 8year: Nov 26, 2015 and Jun 18 and Sep 10, 2016.

Saturn Retrograded into Scorpio from Jun 15 – Sep 17, 2015 wrapping up our accountability around intimacy and sharing of resources stories (Karmic) when Saturn Trined Neptune 3 times in 2012-2013.. Now back in Sagittarius for the next 2+ years, the energy of Saturn’s…

Is what we see real? Is it a illusion? Is there a barrier between realms? If it is all an illusion then why do our actions have consequences? A day of metaphysical pondering awaits!

Melanie's Astro~News

NEPTUNE in PISCES, presently retrograde and ‘stationary’ (apparently very very slowly moving backwards in the Zodiac, from Earth perspective) goes direct on Nov 18, AND will be also squared by SATURN in SAG on Nov 26 (the effect of this transit is noticeable all Nov and Dec).

SATURN and NEPTUNE have a 35-year cycle together (from conjunction to square to opposition to conjunction). The present SATURN – NEPTUNE cycle started with their conjunction in 1989 when the Berlin Wall came down, setting off an avalanche of crumbling of the Communist regimes in Eastern Europe.


NEPTUNE in its own domain of PISCES (from 2012 until 2026) is in Nov and Dec one of the focal points in the Astro~Weather, since it’s changing direction from Earth perspective. It’s a good idea to be aware of its Archetype, and able to recognize what’s up when we’re getting ‘hooked’.

NEPTUNE is a transpersonal planet…

Saturn Square Neptune 1 2015-11-26

This pattern perfects on Thanksgiving Day, just after perfection of a Full Moon, making for an interesting holiday.

You might remember the Saturn SemiSquare Pluto period of August 2015.  Although Saturn was in late Scorpio, and the Sun (Leo) squared Saturn (Scorpio), mostly it was a “good time” because of the positions of Venus and Jupiter.  Those days have moved on, you made whatever decisions you needed to make, and you did or did not take whatever action on those decisions.

We (and others) discussed Saturn in Scorpio a number of times, starting in 2012.  Some posts include these:

But, that window has closed, Saturn has entered Sagittarius (Saturn in Sadge) and will be there until near the end of 2017.  The first big aspect is Saturn square Neptune, which perfects three times, the first shortly after a full moon on November 26, 2015.  We show the first version of the chart filtered for a Kite (source of opportunity) that involves Saturn:

2015-11-26 Saturn Square Neptune 1 (Saturn Kite)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This is the first message: this outer planet square (Saturn square Neptune) contains an opportunity (Kite) for those willing to work for it (Saturn).

A Rosetta pattern is also present that involves Neptune:

2015-11-26 Saturn Square Neptune 1 (Neptune Rosetta)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

For those who prefer the Neptune path (creativity and poetry but also drugs and alcohol and sometimes “taking the easy way”), this time will be characterized by short term alliances that may be treacherous.  (This is the second message.)

Furthermore, a Yod is present if you allow the use of the Nodes:

2015-11-26 Saturn Square Neptune 1 (Node Yod)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This Yod has the South Node (taking the “easy way out”) at the Apex, and alternative paths to Juno (the “betrayed wife”) and Astraea (“law and the legal system”) as its legs.  The Ashley Madison scandal of August introduces this period which may be characterized by high profile divorces and related events.  (This is the third of the three messages related to this aspect.)

We also present the chart filtered for the Grand Air Trine that is at the heart of the Kite mentioned earlier.  Moon / Ceres / Mars form a Grand Air Trine, and we would not be surprised to see (another) shakeup in the financial markets.  [Note, we are writing this Aug 23, 2015.]  The Full Moon which perfected earlier formed a T-Square with Neptune, tending to confirm this.
