2015-09-21 Mars Sesquiquadrate Pluto

Only a few days before the autumnal equinox, and a few after the events of September 17, 2015, Mars perfects a sesquiquadrate aspect to Pluto (Mars SSQ Pluto) on September 21st.  You will feel it before that, certainly by Sunday, September 20th.  This aspect provides an intense urge to “get things done,” sometimes panic, and sometimes even violence.

We present the chart, filtered for SSQ aspects:

If you can stay home and work alone, focusing your energies into completing a singular task, then do so.  Otherwise, still try to work alone if possible.  This is not a good day for interaction with others unless your job inherently involves conflict.

We do note a triangular pattern of 5th order harmonics (quintiles, biquintiles) involving asteroids.  This may be a good day for creative problem solving and thinking.

Noteworthy are the aspects involving Hygeia (health and healthcare), Ceres (feast and famine), and Vesta (tradition).

A bit of a panic sets in as some projects fail while others see significant successes.  A Rosetta on this same date leads some to form temporary alliances which tend to be unstable and may be treacherous.

Sun Sesquiquadrate Uranus 2015-08-28 (Hard Rectangle and More)

Sun Sesquiquadrate Uranus perfects Friday, August 28, 2015.  This is a very GOOD energy for “getting things done” (particularly if you “bit off more than you could chew when you took on that new project Wednesday with Sun Conjunct Jupiter), but it can be very bad if you act impulsively and do something rash and stupid because your temper overcame your better sense.  (Lawyers and boxers might do well under this pattern, but most everyone else tends to suffer.)

We show the chart first filtered for the Sun Sesquiquadrate Uranus aspect (and shows upcoming Sun Opposite Neptune):

Here is the same chart, filtered for 5th harmonic aspects:

2015-08-28 Sun Sesquiquadrate Uranus (5th harmonic)[Click Image to Enlarge]

We see a triangular pattern (a quintile trine?) connecting Mercury (communication and transportation), Astraea (law and legal system), and Pallas (innovation, particularly military innovation).  This can be a day to make important breakthroughs in these areas.

A Hard Rectangle occurs this day, also, heightening the intensity of the day.

Venus Conjunct Jupiter + Jupiter/Venus Sesquiquadrate Pluto 2015-08-04

Venus Conjunct Jupiter + Jupiter/Venus Sesquiquadrate Pluto 2015-08-04

Things will tend to be either very good or very bad today, maybe a mix of both.  Shortly after Venus and Jupiter perfect a conjunction, Jupiter will perfect a Sesquiquadrate to Pluto.  (Venus will do the same on this date.)  The Venus/Jupiter to Pluto connection will be part of a Thor’s Hammer Key: an interlaced pair of Thor’s Hammers.  Either things will go “boom” or people will “get things done” or both.

Here is the chart:

While Venus conjunction Jupiter is usually a “feel good” aspect that brings “good luck,” this one comes with a caution!  Watch your temper, and watch for “things that go boom!”

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:

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!

No Exact Aspects 2012-08-14

The Daily Planetary Guide shows “No Exact Aspects” for today, August 14th.  Over the years, I have noticed that some of these days with “No Exact Aspects” were of profound significance, but I could not determine why.  Eventually, I discovered what I believe to the solution.

Higher order aspects, such as quintiles, bi-quintiles, septiles, bi-septiles, tri-septiles, and so forth are ignored by many if not most astrologers and often considered “minor aspects.”  They occur frequently, and their effect does not seem to last long.  But, particularly regarding quintiles and bi-quintiles, they often bring with them a very powerful kind of “problem solving” window or energy.  (Most astrologers speak of “energy” but I tend to think of “windows” of opportunity.)

On a day when the Ptolemaic aspects are absent, these aspects seem to gain more power as they “shine through.”  That is, without any strong Ptolemaic aspects to eclipse them, and hide their influence, they are more clearly seen.  In a sense, they “announce themselves.”  These days are often remarkably powerful windows of opportunity for creative problem solving.  (Maybe Llewelyn should consider identifying these days and the higher order harmonics present, starting with any exact outer planet higher order harmonics and working inward.)

Using one of my favorite tools, PAT, we obtain this chart:

Some of these aspects have already perfected, and several important ones will perfect on August 15th.  In many ways, August 14th is a day to prepare for the events that will culminate in the period between August 15th and the New Moon on the 17th.

I have also used Solar Fire to produce a similar aspect grid, set in Plano and a little after 3am.  Except for the lunar aspects, these will change little in the next 24 hours, and only the Solar aspects will change significantly by the end of the week.  Some of the aspects will fall out of orb and disappear.  Others are “applying” and will perfect, starting on August 15th.  But, mostly, they are in effect until the New Moon on the 17th.

A few of you may be asking what is the different between PAT and Solar Fire.  Well, obviously SF is far more powerful.  But, what other difference?  The answer is that PAT costs about $10 and is an easy way to get started.  If you do that and find that you are truly interested in Astrology, then you might consider spending the $300 or so that Solar Fire costs.  (If you do that, consider the companion tools Solar Maps and Jigsaw.  They are worth it.)

A few will criticize this post claiming that higher order aspects are always in play.  But, we admitted that at the beginning.  What we are saying is this: (1) no day really exists where you have “No Exact Aspects,” (2) on days of supposedly “No Exact Aspects” these higher order aspects become more significant, and (3) often these days of “No Exact Aspects” are actually powerful windows of opportunity for creative problem solving.  (But, implementing the solution should probably come on a later date, in this case August 15th, during the “Cazimi” period of the New Moon on the 17th, or a day or two after the New Moon.  Could be even a day or two after the New Moon.  The 18th looks very “interesting” this year.)

The next few days will be of pivotal importance to certain people.  August 14th will be a day of preparation for most.  The 15th and 16th will be days of action.  Since all of these days fall BEFORE a New Moon, the best use is clearing out the old.  This is a good time to get the junk out of the garage and donated to someone who can use it.  Some of us, of course, will receive the old junk.  Be careful not to throw a Rembrandt or Da Vinci in the trash.  And, this is a very good time for smart shoppers to get great bargains.

I strongly suspect that we will see an announcement of great importance nationally or even globally in the next few days.

March 31, 2010 Moon Enters Scorpio: A Time to Quietly Get Things Done

Two patterns dominate today’s sky as the Moon enters Scorpio.  Both of them demand action.  The potential for more damage or violence exists here.

The first is known as Thor’s Hammer or the Quadriform.  It is also known as “God’s Fist.”  From the article just linked to:

Other astrologers see the energy flow originating in the apex planet, which then must find a way to wield the power and dynamic stress of the square planets. It’s a little like holding a live grenade – what do you do with it?? You need to find a way to use it constructively and creatively, or the energy can become destructive. This image is like a Hammerhead or God’s Fist.

Here, the planets are the Moon (in Scorpio), Mars (in Early Leo, square to the Moon), and Jupiter in Pisces sesquiquadrate to both.  How will you use this energy?  The following chart is entry into perfection of the Thor’s hammer at 9pm local (Dallas) time:

But, earlier, a Double Thor’s Hammer occurred.  The second square involved is Mercury square Mars, so both patterns are connected by the common planet Mars.  This larger pattern made of two embedded patterns is not an acknowledged pattern, but the pattern is obvious, and so is what the name should be:

Of course, this is a bit like having a hand-grenade in EACH hand, and the explosive power is provided here by Mars (maximum explosive power).  Actually, this should be called a “Left Double Thor’s Hammer” since an alternative form, the “Right Double Thor’s Hammer” can exist.  (Or, if you prefer the less dramatic: Left Double Quadriform and Right Double Quadriform).

The other pattern is a Hele.  The pattern was recognized recently, in 2004, by Sally Fisher (according to the link just provided).  Here, Uranus and Neptune are in a semi-sextile.  Uranus trines Mars (a potentially bad aspect regarding bombs and terrorism) and Moon trines Neptune (which either leads to great creativity or things being cloudy and obscured).  Moon and Mars complete the pattern with their square.

Only recently recognized, not much is known about the Hele.  But, the two trines involving two planets with large orbits (Uranus 84 years / Neptune 160 years) implies that the events of today (and maybe the past few days) will have significant consequences for many years to come.  Although maps would be “nice,” choosing a specific point in time is difficult.  For example, would it be the Moon ingress to Scorpio or the perfection of Moon square Mars?  When the Hele perfected?  When the Quadriform(s) perfected?

The two patterns are intricately connected and make two different but inter-related pronouncements on the same matters (Moon in Scorpio square Mars in Leo).  In fact, this might be considered some greater pattern, a superset of both embedded patterns.  In a sense, this pattern looks a bit like a square key or double yod key (prevalent yesterday).

The author of this blog (who prefers to be anonymous until after his death, and only known as “Grand Trines”) will therefore dub this, as alternative synonyms, the Quadriform Key or the Hele Key.  (And, arguably, it could be called a “Thor’s Hammer Key” (more dramatic than the other names) or the “God’s Fist Key” (the most dramatic of all).)

Then again, maybe someone else (Grant Lewi?) found the same thing in the 1930’s.  (But, as of this writing, no clear evidence exists of any prior recognition or naming.  But the author of this website is a fan of Lewi’s, so he gets a plug.)

Here are the two versions of the chart:
