2016-03 W12: Forecasts for Week 12 of 2016

The Vernal Equinox is March 19th / 20th depending on your location (with Venus conjunct Neptune on the same day), and the next lunation (a Aries / Libra Full Moon) follows on March 23rd (Jupiter perfects a square to Saturn a few hours earlier on the same day).  You already feel Jupiter / Saturn (especially the financial markets do), and this is the second of three with the first being last fall.

Focused Yods are also present this month, and we can “get things done” during these periods (absent other considerations such as v/c moons):

 Focused Yod Enters   March 12 2016 10:52:06 pm (CST +6:00)
 Focused Yod Leaves March 14 2016 12:32:31 pm (CDT +5:00)
 Focused Yod Enters   Mar 17 2016 4:52:40 pm (CDT +5:00)
 Focused Yod Leaves Mar 20 2016 8:53:56 am (CDT +5:00)

Week 12 (W12)

Sunday March 13th

Moon is v/c from 4:47 AM CDT until 4:04 PM CDT.  Since Daylight Savings Time went into effect overnight, the accompanying void seems somehow appropriate.  Slow down, be careful, avoid major purchases or commitments, and find some time to center yourself as Spring approaches.  Later tonight, after Moon enters Gemini, Moon squares Venus (Pisces) and opposes Mars (Sagittarius) to form a T-Square.  Chances are good that this is much ado about nothing.

Outer Planets: Jupiter (law, legal, higher education, long distance travel, and people related to these topics) perfects a long term opposition to Ceres (prosperity in general and food in particular) and issues related to these “come to a head” either over the weekend (a few days before), today, or in the next few days.  Two outer planet quincunxes perfect, also make this a bit of an unpleasant day.  (Jupiter quincunx Pallas, Chiron quincunx Astraea)

Monday March 14th

International Math Day, Pi Day, or Einstein’s Birthday: take your pick.  (“All of the above” is the right answer here.)  Informally, the Moon forms a very loose grand cross with an opposition to Saturn and squares to Neptune and Jupiter.  You will either accomplish much or nothing at all.  (No in-betweens on this one.)

Mercury squares Saturn, forcing you to pay attention to detail, but the perfection of Venus square Mars distracts you with issues of love and sex (or, if those don’t apply, family, power, & money).  Outer planets are relatively quiet, but Uranus triseptile Juno suggests that a kind move that is helpful to a family member who deserved better treatment in the past is a very good idea today.  But today is very important because of the Diamond Pattern present today along with other patterns.  In fact, the patterns tell us that this may be one of the most important days (or several days) this year, maybe in several years.

A Diamond Pattern (rare) is present today and starts March 14 2016 4:13:20 pm (CDT +5:00) and continues until March 14 2016 8:35:22 pm (CDT +5:00).

A Mystic Rectangle is present late in the day and tomorrow and makes this, possibly, one of the best two days for art and creativity:

Mystic Rectangle Enters Mar 14 2016 9:05:45 pm (CDT +5:00)
Mystic Rectangle Leaves Mar 15 2016 8:08:02 am (CDT +5:00)

A series of Thor’s Hammer Patterns are also present, so watch your temper and focus all that energy into “getting things done” (especially if they are artistic in nature).

Again, the patterns tell us that March 14th of 2016 may be one of the most important days (or several days) this year, maybe in several years.  The entire week is important.  Jupiter Trine Pluto with a Grand Quintile is an important turning point for some people, especially artists and other creatives.  We are setting the stage for the upcoming full moon / lunar eclipse.

Tuesday March 15th (Ides of March)

[Written in retrospective.]  Today a number of important elections occur.  Given the aspects and patterns of Monday and Wednesday, we believe you will see significant changes / events occur.  Mercury (Pisces) opposes Jupiter (Virgo), and Mercury also is sextile Pluto (Capricorn).  The three, together, form a triangular pattern that is yet another indicator of powerful changes.

Venus also perfects a semisquare to Uranus, adding both a sense of urgency and a sense of weirdness to the day.  Capture those unexpected insights if you cannot put them into practice today so that you can followup on them on another day if necessary.  But, if you can, take advantage of the “luck” of perfection of Jupiter Trine Pluto tomorrow to accomplish something amazing.

Wednesday March 16th

Jupiter Trine Pluto perfects today, the second in a series of three.  A Grand Quintile is also present earlier in the day, and that is a rare pattern that can produce powerful insights (genius level) as well as bode well for the development of creative works.  Take advantage of the rare opportunity that today presents as best you can.  Days like today are rare indeed.

Thursday March 17th

We note that the Moon is very busy today, perfecting seven aspects (not including higher order aspects such as quintiles and septiles). The afternoon and evening has a series of lunar trines on this traditional Irish holiday (the date of St. Patrick’s death), and we expect the evening to go well for most people (except anyone who consumes too much in the way of mood altering substances and contributes to an accident or other harmful situation).

Mercury conjunct Chiron today tells us that we have communications and transportation related to health, education or both. Much of today is about processing the earlier three days of the week.

Friday March 18th

A relatively benevolent Moon v/c begins after midnight (Moon Trine Sun) and ends near 4 AM CDT with the entry of the Moon into Leo. The moon is more quiet today than yesterday, with quincunx aspects to Venus (afternoon) and Neptune (evening). You may encounter a few glitches, but for most people they will be forgetten in a day or two and certainly by next week.

Outer planet aspects are far more busy (yesterday was relatively quiet with a Ceres / Uranus aspect bring a surprise regarding our prosperity (“The Visa is maxed out? Again?)).

Mars sesquiquadrate Uranus brings us some sense of urgency (possibly anger) to “get things done.”  Chiron opposite North Node (“Rahu” to some) means it is conjunct the South Node (“Ketu”) and, therefore, we have a temptation to “take the easy way out” or “cut corners” regarding some issue involving healthcare, education, or both.  (Don’t do it!)

Pallas does BiQuintile Hygeia, and we CAN have a brilliant insight into how to solve problems today.  Just focus your efforts, do not get derailed, do not cut corners, and do the work necessary.

Saturday March 19th

In most of the United States, except the Eastern Time Zone (EDT), the Vernal Equinox greets us late tonight.  (EU / UK experience this a half past 5 or half past 6 or later depending upon time zone.)

Sun biseptiles Saturn, and we should consider resolving some old karma or helping someone less fortunate than ourselves or both.  Sun quintiles Pluto, and we may encounter a very ingenious idea that either (a) helps us with the biseptiles (helping someone else) or (b) gives us a gift in the form of a smart idea that comes from providing said help.  In any case, they go together and they set the stage for the days to come at least until the Summer Solstice (late June) or possibly as long as the Vernal Equinox of next year (late March).  Venus septile Pluto confirms this emphasis on helping others.

Venus novile Uranus provides us with a gift of some sort this evening, an insight or useful skill, likely resulting from helping others (or maybe an insight because we failed to help; those can be hard lessons sometimes).

Week 13 (W13)

Sun Enters Aries (Vernal Equinox) 2016-03-19 (Focused Yod)

Sun Enters Aries (Vernal Equinox) 2016-03-19

The Vernal Equinox occurs March 19th in most of the United States and March 20th in UK / Europe.  (Click here for more about the change of seasons in 2016.)  We have a Focused Yod present.  (For more about Focused Yods in 2016, click here.)  That pattern requires you to make a decision (choose wisely!) but also gives you the power to “get things done” once you have made that decision.  That pattern occurring at this time will give you both a similar requirement and a similar advantage until at least the Summer Solstice and possibly as long as the Vernal Equinox in 2017.

Here is the chart for the Vernal Equinox of 2016, filtered for the Focused Yod:

Other patterns are also present, including a Hele and a Square Key.  For more about Hele patterns in 2016, click here.  For more about Square Keys in 2016, click here.

Here is the same chart filtered for the Hele, an ongoing pattern at this time that contains Uranus, Pluto, Astraea, and the North Node (also known as Rahu, sometimes called “hard karma,” and a point in space rather than a physical planet).  You are making decisions about who will be your long term alliances this month, and that continues to be an important issue today:

The ongoing Square Key also tells us that you will be learning important “lessons” at this time.  Saturn, Uranus, Pluto, and the North Node are involved, so the “lessons” could be a bit harsh at times.  If you survive them, you will have new ideas, be fundamentally transformed in some way, and be aware of what is essential.

Here is the chart for the ongoing (longer term) Square Key:

As we have written elsewhere, higher order aspects with outer planets are also in play today.  (These also tend to be “longer term.”)  For your convenience we will present some of that analysis here (but click the link if you want more):

Sun biseptiles Saturn, and we should consider resolving some old karma or helping someone less fortunate than ourselves or both.  Sun quintiles Pluto, and we may encounter a very ingenious idea that either (a) helps us with the biseptiles (helping someone else) or (b) gives us a gift in the form of a smart idea that comes from providing said help.  Venus is also novile Uranus today, providing us with an important insight or skill.  [click here to read more]

A Grand Fire Trine is also present today (today only), and that tells us that we face an opportunity (particularly strong if you are heavy in your personal chart with Fire / Air signs).  Here is the same chart filtered for the Grand Fire Trine:

2016-03-19 Calendar of Aspects

March 2016 (Mars Out)

Week 12 (W12)

In most of the United States, except the Eastern Time Zone (EDT), the Vernal Equinox greets us late tonight.  (EU / UK experience this a half past 5 or half past 6 or later depending upon time zone.)

2016-03-19 Sunout All Aspects (Daily)

Sun biseptiles Saturn, and we should consider resolving some old karma or helping someone less fortunate than ourselves or both.  Sun quintiles Pluto, and we may encounter a very ingenious idea that either (a) helps us with the biseptiles (helping someone else) or (b) gives us a gift in the form of a smart idea that comes from providing said help.  In any case, they go together and they set the stage for the days to come at least until the Summer Solstice (late June) or possibly as long as the Vernal Equinox of next year (late March)…

Vernal Equinox 2014 (First Day of Spring)

Here is the chart for the Vernal Equinox of 2014:

Vernal Equinox 2014 2014-03-17_23-18-18

 

We note that this happens near lunchtime in the Central Time Zone (CDT).  So, some people might “feel” this shift.  A grand water trine (Jupiter in Cancer, Moon in Scorpio, and Chiron & Neptune in Pisces) has perfected earlier (within the preceding 24 hours) and is disspating as this shift occurs.  If your chart is heavy on earth/water then you should consider “getting things done” before this shift occurs.  If you are more fire/air, then wait until afterwards (and after the Moon moves into Sadge).

Here is the U.S. Solar Map:

Vernal Equinox 2014 US Map 2014-03-17_23-28-35

I note that, curiously, the Sun at Midheaven aligns exactly on top of Dartmouth College in New Hampshire.  Which opens the question: what amazing developments will we see from that revered Ivy League school this year?

Mercury at Midheaven aligns over the top of the home of the author of this blog.  Maybe this will be a good year for writing?

 

First Day of Spring: Vernal Equinox 2012

March 12, 2012 at 3:33 pm | Posted in Astrology, Lunations, Predictions | 7 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

The Vernal Equinox of 2012 is at hand. 

Here is the basic chart, set in Plano. 

If you are planning a celebration, and you are in the Western Hemisphere, hold it on the evening of the 19th (or perhaps the 18th).  However, avoid significant actions to launch new projects until the New Moon of the 22nd.  The weekend following the 22nd will herald the true beginning of Spring for many. 

I recommend closing all “old business” by the 18th, using the remaining period until Friday the 23rd as a “week off” (expect unexpected changes due to strong influence of the Uranus / Pluto square), and have fun the following weekend.  (That would be a great weekend for marriage proposals.)

If you would like a list of Moon Phases for both 2012 and 2013, try here:  http://www.calendar-365.com/moon/moon-phases.html

From that list, we note that August of 2012 has a Blue Moon on August 31st.

Using this source:  http://www.seasky.org/astronomy/astronomy-calendar-2012.html  We note that the already spectacular Full Moon of May 6th will be accompanied by a meteor shower to the east, in the constellation of Aquarius.  Perhaps this is another good time for a celebration.

From that same source, we observe that the Summer’s Solstice this year will immediately FOLLOW a New Moon.  This will be another interesting time.

Vernal Equinox 2012 Maps

United States

With Mars at Midheaven in Southern Mexico, here in Plano, and north through Chicago, we can expect an “interesting” Spring along that line.  Great for athletics but also associated with acts of violence.  The Western U.S., and especially Northwestern Mexico, received a benevolent gift of some kind via the Venus & Jupiter (in Taurus) lines.

The East Coast is highly activated, and Uranus is touching Boston.  We expect really smart people there (Cambridge?) doing really smart things, possibly accidents, and a very good chance of both.  A combination of the Node (fate) and several other lines occurs west of Montreal, and we expect Canadians to see some powerful event or culmination of a problem in that region this Spring.  Finally, all of Appalachia this spring will be touched by the Node line, which passes directly through Atlanta and through the “panhandle” of Western Florida (aka “The Emerald Coast”).  The problems of the poor and disenfranchised in this region can no longer be ignored, and we may see some kind of followup to the mining explosion of 2010 (mentioned elsewhere on this blog) that was eclipsed by the BP Oil spill.

Both of those accidents highlight not only abuses, but an abusive way of thinking, among those who occupy positions of power in corporate America.  With Uranus square Pluto for the next few YEARS, expected reversals of fortune that force better behavior on behalf of the poor and disenfranchised in this region.

Australia

Mostly good news for Australia: Melbourne is HIGHLY favored at this time by a Venus at Midheaven.  This is a good place to be at this time; overall, favorable things are happening & will be happening.  On a less pleasant note, Darwin has a Saturn line passing nearby, and this bodes for a period of austerity.  The exact nature is unclear, but this could be further economic contraction.  Whatever remains after this period will be a very strong Darwin focused on the most important principles.  At first blush, Perth does not have any activity.  However, it is roughly at the midpoint between the Pluto and Uranus lines.  Recall, if you will, that this aspect has been described as the “reversal of fortunes” aspect.  Some wealthy will lose their money, and some poor will have newfound fortune.

Finally, New Zealand is so highly activated that I am not sure what to say.  Something tells me that something involving outsiders, not from NZ, is cooking and that it will be very big.  Node, Moon, Neptune, and Chiron all pass through NZ, and they are currently associated with things Piscean.  Issues involving certain arts (music and poetry) and religion could be very big there.  An island to the Northeast has a Mars line passing through it, and it may experience some of the same issues of potential violence (or great athletic performance) as other areas with Mars lines.  Refer to map, below.

That is it for now.  Hope the Venus/Jupiter conjunction of March 14th fares /fared you well.

Update: The VE is almost here, so I am adding a few last minute maps.  First: Asia.

Asia

Note the Sun MC chart line going near Hanoi, Bangkokh, Kuala Lumpur, and Jakarta.  The impact of this particular VE will be particularly powerful for these cities and the region between them (all are on one side or the other of the Sun MC).

The North Node (Karmic) Line is all along the Western Coast of India, indicating some kind of working off of Karma there.  The line is almost on top of Bombay.

A Pluto line also comes near Hanoi, indicating some kind of challenge there.  Based on Pluto’s position in Capricorn, and what it did upon its entry into Capricorn in 2008 (financial crash), I bet Hanoi may especially feel any kind of financial problems that may be currently occurring.  Here is the map.

United Kingdom

Sometimes I just use the Europe map to cover the UK as well, but this time I thought a separate map was appropos.  Note the Neptune Ascendant line through the Channel.  Not sure what this means, but Neptune has a way of sweeping things away.  My guess is that, if they are not showing already, something like signs of dangerous erosion to the infrastructure related to Channel traffice will come to light or SHOULD come to light.  This might even have a more metaphorical meaning, as England and France are forced to somehow re-define their very long term and very old relationship.  Look to what was happening 240 years ago, roughly (the U.S. Revolution?), and you might find the answer.

Chiron’s line touches Glasgow, and this means that Scotland is working on some kind of healing.  My guess is that it is financial but it may be more literal.  Could be an outbreak of some kind, perhaps a late season influenza or something like that.  Given that most of the UK is between the Neptune and Chiron lines, public health may be very much in the public eye, and the time of an overhaul of some kind may be at hand.

On a less favorable note, the Moon line goes through Dublin, Ireland (not to be confused with Dublin, Texas) and Lisbon, Portugal.  Since the Moon is in Pisces, and Pisces rules debt, this could be a bit unfavorable.  However, the Moon is very old and shrinking fast, so maybe this is a chance for resolution of debt issues in these places.  One way or the other, this Spring will be seen as a crucial turning point regarding these debt issues.

Click to Enlarge

Europe

The European map is complex, and only the most cursory analysis is offered here.  Perhaps another astrologer can explore this map in more depth.  (Jude, are you reading this?)  As mentioned earlier, Moon in Pisces (debt) touches Dublin & Lisbon, and Neptune (debt) goes straight through Madrid.  (Neptune, Pisces, and the 12th house are all equivalents, being planet, sign, and house representations of the same things.)  My (sad and gloomy) interpretation is that the European debt problems will worsen this (astrological, VE to VE) year.

The Mars line goes through or near Kobenhaven, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Marseilles, and Algiers.  Mars is the energy to act.  In its high form, it is athletic achievements or at least the ability to get things done.  In low form, and it has a propensity to take the low form, it is violence and war.  Do not be surprised to see riots in any of these cities, possibly related to financial issues.  Notably, Mars is in Virgo, which tends to ameliorate its effects.  Since Virgo rules healthcare, the energy could be plowed into healthcare.  And, Virgo (being opposite Pisces) also relates to debt.  So, this confirms a possible response to the debt issue.  The Pisces-Virgo axis is about the balance between work and play, so some may have a perception that others played while they worked (and paid).

The (Ascendant) Sun line also comes near Kobenhaven as well as Berlin and Rome.  For these cities, the Vernal Equinox will occur near Sunrise.  Generally, this is a fortuitous event, and could signal some relief.  (I know that sounds rather paradoxical, given Berlin’s relationship to Europe’s financial problems.)

A node (karmic) line touches the southwestern tip of Ireland, and a karmic event could occur here (earthquake, explosion, accident, etc.) soon.  Similarly, a Uranus Ascendant line touches Vienna, running roughly North-South, and could signal the same along that line.

Kiev & Minsk are touched by a Venus line, which is very favorable, especially for financial relief and forms of art that resembling sculptures.  Relief is to be expected along this line.  But, a Pluto line runs through eastern Poland and other parts of eastern Europe, passing by Athens as it exits the continent.  As mentioned earlier, Pluto in Capricorn has been associated with financial difficulties, so transformation in these areas will continue to occur.

That said….

Africa

Africa is large and complex.  Much of the analysis of Europe applies to the analogous lines in Africa.  That said, expect to hear interesting news from Cape Town this Spring.

2010 Spring Equinox Post Hoc (After the Fact) Analysis

March 21, 2010 at 11:01 am | Posted in 2012, Astrology, Predictions | Comments Off on 2010 Spring Equinox Post Hoc (After the Fact) Analysis
Tags: , , , , ,

Barbara Hand Clow has an interesting article with a different viewpoint on the Equinox.  She presents a meditation (many people are searching for that) along with an analysis.  She focuses on the T-Square between Sun / Saturn / Pluto.

An Equinox is a Type of “Solar Return”


From a certain vantage point, a solstice or equinox chart is an annual “return.”  Since such as “Solar Return” happens when the Sun is at precisely the same point each year, one can argue that the “Sun disappears.” That means that the Moon becomes the most important object in the sky, hence the earlier article about the Algol Moon.  (In an odd way, this is a wee bit like a Solar Eclipse.)

Midpoint of Venus and Jupiter replace the Sun this year

With the Sun gone, and the Moon analyzed earlier, analysis of the T-Square should begin with Venus and Jupiter.  Venus and Jupiter are exactly 16 degrees, each, from the 0 Aries point; they are equidistant.  This midpoint is less that a degree from the 0 point, meaning (for most purposes) it is exact.  It is also less that a degree from the opposition to Saturn (it is exact).  Here is the chart, with midpoints.

Aspects to, and Uses of, Venus / Jupiter Midpoint

The midpoint of Venus and Jupiter is likely the most beneficial midpoint that can be experienced, and this means the possibility of a very good year.  (Of course, some people will benefit more than others, depending on their natal chart.  Unfavorable aspects can still exist in relation to the natal chart.  And, even if the natal chart is superb, the person can choose to squander the opportunity.)

Sometimes astrology says what we already know, and it does so here:  Venus (prosperity and harmony) will grow (Jupiter, the great amplifier) if we both (1) work for it and (2) eliminate the unnecessary (both of these are opposing Saturn).  A great opportunity exists this year; this is the “brass ring” for some people.

Pluto, square and completing the T-Square, says to achieve this we must undergo profound transformation.  In some settings someone must die, but someone will be born.  (Or “one door closes, and another opens.”)  This is not necessarily a “natural person”; it could be a business, relationship, building, community, or maybe just a very entrenched habit that has outworn its usefulness.

The Answer is not in the T-Square; The Answer is in the Triangle of Potential

But, still, the answer is not quite found in any of these.  Because of the “Triangle of Potential” (mentioned earlier), with Mars at 0 Leo, action and leadership will be necessary.  Pluto indicates a possible change in leadership.  Pluto inconjunct (aka quincunx) Leo indicates a dissatisfaction with leadership.

(I am not speaking of Presidential leadership, though I could be.  The populace routinely becomes disenchanted with Presidents as campaign promises routinely remain unfulfilled.  But, I am talking local leadership.  A patriarch or matriarch in a family or business may need to move into an advisory role, lest that family or business disintegrate altogether.)

But, again, Mars is the key here: take action, if you want to grow (Jupiter) your prosperity (Venus) through the hard work and self-sacrifice (Saturn) and losses (Pluto) that are likely to come to pass.

Personal and Global Communications will blend and will be essential to the change

Mercury and Uranus form a midpoint that even more precisely addressed the T-Square (and the Triangle of Potential).  Both govern communication (and Mercury governs transportation), with Mercury being more private and personal and Uranus being more public and global, so communications of all kinds will be at the center of achievement.

In fact, the most important achievements this year may involve communications and how we communicate with each other, as personal and global communications become intertwined and blended.  Perhaps this is a harbinger of 2012, and the changes yet to come.

2010 Spring Equinox: Make One Wish, and then Work for It

Make One Wish, and then Work for It

As pointed out in a comment by a reader, besides Moon Conjunct Algol, the next most important thing about this particular Spring Equinox is the relationship between Sun, Saturn, and Mars. The three of them form a pattern, probably one of the Huber patterns. At least one site describes it as a “Triangle of Potential“:

A Triangle of Potential is another fairly common pattern that comprises a trine, sextile and opposition, in other words two soft aspects and one hard aspect. In this case, the planet at the apex of the trine and sextile is the key to solving the opposition. The person will experience struggles, but by utilizing the energy of the trine and sextile will be able to make them work, so to speak. In many respects the hard aspects are what motivate us. If life was always easy we’d have a lot less incentive to grow. A Triangle of Potential will give a person just enough friction to utilize latent talents and abilities that otherwise might lie dormant.

So, the “gift” of this equinox is given by the results of  hard work.  (That is good for a number of countries in Western Europe.)

The planets and signs here give the potential to accomplish, and accomplish much. Both the Sun and Saturn are at the first degrees of their respective signs, and the Sun is at what many consider to be the most important point in the zodiac. The “solution” is found in Mars at 0 Leo (also an important point); Mars has just begun forward motion. That means old projects are being resurrected and given a second chance.

Two paths exist here: the fierce anger of Mars in early Leo and the stubborn unyielding destructive power of Algol, or using the focus given by the Taurus Moon and the energy of forward Mars in early Leo to get something done. And, by “get something done,” I do not mean death or destruction. The potential here is to bring about lasting change (Saturn is very permanent, the “bones” of anything). So, as you celebrate this Equinox, think about the one major change you want to accomplish this year, and put all of your energy into accomplishing that.

If you are a returning visitor, then you have probably read the “2010 Vernal Equinox: Bad Moon aRisin’” entry. 50% of you, or more, come here specifically to read that (which means that it sort of went “viral” on a very small scale, maybe 1,000 people or so). Traffic peaked yesterday, Thursday March 18th. Most celebrations are tonight.  Except for some post hoc analysis later, this is the last entry regarding the 2010 Spring Equinox.

Vernal Equinox 2010: A Bad Moon a Risin’

Algol and the 2010 Spring Equinox

[If you are looking for the 2012 Spring Equinox click here.]

We usually think as the start of Spring as a happy time, and Friday Saturday March 20th of 2010 will certainly mark a turning point.  Perhaps the most important point in this particular equinox is the Moon at 26 degrees of Taurus.  That is where the star Algol (“The Ghoul”) is located.  Generally, Algol is considered “unfavorable” or “malefic.”

We do not usually think of a “ghoul” as being the icon of the First Day of Spring.  Of course, if your thing is casting spells, this might be an especially powerful time for you.  I might add, the rest of this article is not about landscaping and gardening.  However, if you do participate in rituals and celebrations, you might choose add an extra measure of care this year the Friday night before the Equinox, lest March be the cruelest month (instead of April).

Most astrologers would say Algol is the most malefic of stars since it is associated with murders, serial killers, and beheadings. Especially beheadings.  Reputedly, “Saddam Hussein [had] Mercury on Algol (torture lover), [and]  Richard Speck, murder[er] of 8 nurses had Pluto on Algol.”

Algol is a bad dude, and Moon for the equinox is conjunct it.  For beginners reading this, the Moon is supposed to be both our innermost self and the part of us that is nurtured and can nurture.  The Moon is the most comfortable place in our home, and it is our final resting place (grave).  Algol has alternatively been called the head of the demon, Satan, and the Medusa’s Head.  The moniker of “Medusa’s Head” comes from Ancient Greece. The severed head of Medusa destroyed anything its gaze fell upon.

The Moon conjunct Algol is like your mother, sister, daughter, or best female friend falling in love with the worst possible person imaginable.  Your mom + Charles Manson doing LSD together and planning something really scary.

Solar Fire 7.22 Chart of Vernal Equinox 2010 (March 20th), Annotated

Some people have had very bad experiences with Algol.

I do not know what Moon on Algol will mean for us, but here are some possibilities:

  • The war in Iraq gets worse instead of better, with some of the worst / bloodiest / most tragic battles or events of the war.
  • More mass killings by terrorists
  • Possible expose’ of one or more serial killers of large proportions (over 20, and probably over 50 killings)
  • And more: death by “beheading, hanging, choking, asphyxiation, electrocution, murder, [and] mob violence.”

Certain kinds of other events may occur:

  • Landmark movies about the kind of events described above.  (Consider, already, the winner of the Oscars: “The Hurt Locker.”)
  • An unanticipated event involving Mick Jagger (reputed to have Moon on Algol, so this is a sort of “return” for him)
  • A romantic event, perhaps peculiar, for Prince William (reputed to have Venus on Algol)

And, that’s the GOOD news!  (Just kidding.  That’s the worst part.)

To be expected: typical news articles like this one from CNN, the Lindsay Lohan Muse Photoshoot Video (notice how it tends to be dark and distrubing), child star Amanda Bynes posing for Maxim in lingerie, and the NY Times Article “Drug Slayings in Mexico Rock U.S. Consulate.”  These are probably the beginning of a long chain.  And, as disturbing as this is, we might have another event similar to the Virginia Tech slayings.

This is enoug h by itself; the rest of the equinox is for other articles.  If you want, or need, a more detailed analysis, try this one.

Shameless Solicitation of a Vote: pimp it
