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.

More on March 30th and Full Moon of March 29th

“The Cliff Notes” version: yep, this was another “Bad Moon” that certainly had the potential to generate a bombing.  That it occurred in Moscow rather than Tehran or Baghdad is surprising, based on the maps.  A number of global cities were affected in different ways, including New York, Philly, DFW (Dallas Fort Worth, aka “The Metroplex”), Oakland CA, Seattle, Vancouver, Tokyo, Jakarta, Alice Springs, Paris, Rome, Krakaw, Budapest, and most of Eastern Europe.

The Full Moon Will Provide the Energy for the Double Yod Key of March 30th

The Full Moon of March 29th has perfected, almost precisely as the beginning of this article about that Full Moon.   Although the U.S. has some important activity, once again Australia looks “interesting.”  We’ll cover the bombings today as well, and take a look at the Pacific Rim.  Most of this post will be graphic so that you can “draw” your own conclusions.  (Sorry, just could not pass that one up.)

The Double Yod Key of March 30th is still a powerful and “interesting” aspect.  (Here is a different approach to March 30th) Decisions will be made on that date, and they will be major decisions following this Full Moon.  Given the equinox this year with a precise Moon Conjunct Algol, other similar events may plague us this year.  Focused Yods (fairly common) and Quintile Kites (not so common) are prevalent during this period, as mentioned earlier.

Here are two versions of the Full Moon chart, both done with Solar Fire 7.22 and one done with a specially designed “custom” page:  (by the way, you can click on any graphic in this blog to open it for better viewing)

Also: here is a different interpretation of this Full Moon.  And, here is another one.

and

Note that Uranus has the largest midpoint tree.  Since Uranus (aka Prometheus) governs the unexpected, that is to be expected on the day of a bombing.  Uranus also governs rebels, rebellions, and revolutions.  So, that this bombing was done by rebels is not (after the fact) so surprising, either.  Note that Uranus midpoints pick up Sun, Mercury, Venus, Neptune and Chiron.  That is, Uranus aspects midpoints of most of the planets in the chart.

An Aries / Libra Full Moon always has the potential for violence.  Violence is not the only thing happening here; this could be a great time for romance, or building a plan and then engaging in decisive action.

And, now, for Maps.  Looking at the U.S. first, we see (1) MC line for a very strong Mars that forms a T-Square with the Ascendant and Venus (at this particular location).  This line operates through the geographic center of the U.S.  Neptune in NYC and Chiron along Philly show that the Mid-Atlantic is dealing with some kind of profound healing.  Since Neptune is all about revelations, do not be surprised if corruption is exposed and scandals erupt.  Curiously, these same scandals may lead (believe it or not) to the development of an educational curriculum (probably within a Criminal Justice program) that specializes in training law enforcement in the discovery of corruption and organized crime.  If you are reading this, and you are a professor thinking about this kind of thing, this is YOUR TIME.  Do not hesitate; charge ahead with your plan.  The time is ripe.

A hint exists here that something from the U.S. may have been involved in the bombing today.  Different versions of these lines exist in the former USSR, so do not be surprised if we learn the explosives or detonator were manufactured in the U.S., possibly somewhere in or near the Mid-Atlantic (or along that Mars line; maybe here in Texas?)

One other thing, Oakland CA, and Seattle & Vancouver have a Sun DSC line nearby.  In addition to making this a powerful Full Moon in those localities, the Moonrise was probably spectacular in those locations (still near horizon as this is being written).

Australia and New Zealand are “interesting.”  But, the most interesting thing is the Uranus line through Alice Springs.  Will one of the bombers have a connection to someone there?  Or, should people there be “aware” for “surprises.”  (What kind?  Who knows?  It would not be a “surprise” if we knew. But it is not necessarily “bad,” and no need to think this is a bombing. But, count on a “surprise” of some kind. Also, this is a VERY good time and place for “creative types.”)

For comparison, here is the link to the earlier Moon Conjunct Algol Map of the recent Equinox.

With a Pluto line through Tehran and a Uranus line through Baghdad, the big surprise is that the bombings did NOT happen there. Given that Pluto is considered to rule Nuclear energy (and particularly Plutonium, which is appropriately named after Pluto), this emphasizes the continuing issues with Nuclear Power and Tehran. Note that, similar to the related Moon Conjunct Algol Equinox map, Jakarta is once again affected or even somehow implicated in the activities of today. Other parts of Asia are “interesting” as well:

Saving the most important for last, we have Europe.  Oddly, Moscow does not have any lines.  The most crucial point on this map is a crossing of Mars (violence) and Chiron (healing).  That occurs very close to the eastern border of Poland.  What this means is unclear, but do not be surprised if this region somehow played a pivotal role in the bombing.  The UK is not clearly aspected, but both Paris and Stockholm  have the Node on the Ascendant, implying that a turning point (at least one if not many) has been reached in both places.  Most interesting would be to know what links exist between Paris and Stockholm.   The aforementioned Mars line passes near Krakaw, Budapest, and Rome.  Finally, that same Mars line, along with a Neptune line to the east, “bracket” much of Eastern Europe.  Here is the map:

5 point stellium on Monday March 15th (and Tuesday March 16th)

As you may realize from the title of this blog, the focus of this blog is planetary patterns. Monday March 15, 2010 and Tuesday March 16, 2010 will witness a five point stellium. These happen from time to time, but not everyday. This one emphasizes things Piscean.

As you can see from this chart (a SolarFire 7 chart), the Moon is very old and moving toward a New Moon.  In case what I am saying is not obvious, follow the large red lines across the middle of the chart to the group of eight (8) planets on the left hand side.  This group of eight planets can fit about five of them together in a sign or house.  Thus the “5 point stellium.”

Opinions vary about New Moons, but the traditional interpretation is unfavorable.  New Moons do govern beginnings, but they also govern endings.  Shortly after the New Moon, the Moon connects to Mercury (transportation and communication) then Uranus (accidents).

Pisces governs songs and poetry but also mis-steps, deceit, and crime of the “con-artist” variety.  Pisces also governs revelations, particularly the “slip of the tongue” accidental kind.  (Note Uranus = accidents, mentioned above.)

Since this particular one (several stellia occur in the March 15th / 16th period) occurs in rush hour for most U.S. time zones, the likelihood of auto accidents increases.  The same may be true in parts of Europe experiencing the evening rush hour.  For poets and songwriters, this can be a great time.  The rest of us need to be extra careful.

A few people will find this to be a good time to launch a diet or break an old bad habit.

Most affected: people born August 17th to September 19th.  People born February 13th to March 17th.  For these two groups especially, this will probably be either a very bad day or a very good one.  Generally: avoid major purchases if possible.  Avoid long term commitments that involve work, especially arduous work.  (You’ll be “able” to do it, but you may not like it much.)  Again, best uses: reading or writing poetry, lyrics or music.  In fact, any kind of work involving the “Nine Muses.”
