2015-07-18 Mercury Square Uranus

Mercury (Cancer) squares Uranus (Aries) on a day when the Moon first conjoins Jupiter in Leo (with the Moon in mutual reception with the Cancerian Sun) and then both Moon and Venus change signs before the Moon conjoins Venus.  This starts as a mostly “feel good” day but ends with a brainstorm.  Watch out for arguments this evening.  The time is better spent writing down what might be some rather amazing ideas that come to you or, better yet, doing major work on the novel or short story you have been working on for sometime.  (You might yet finish it!)

Here is the chart, filtered for squares:

Feeling out of sorts?  Drink too much last night?  Feeling like writing poetry for some unexplained reason?  Could be the effects of Mercury Square Neptune on May 9th.  This aspect colors the period from May 8th to May 10th (Mothers Day), and arguably might have a bit wider influence given the upcoming Mercury Retrograde (May 18th).

Here is the chart:

Here is the chart for Uranus Square Pluto in March of 2015:

Uranus Square Pluto 2015-03-16

This chart has been filtered to show ONLY squares, and we note that Sun Square Pallas is also exact at this time.  You may also want to read about Uranus Square Pluto in December of 2014 and Uranus Square Pluto in November of 2013.  This major outer planet aspect precedes the Solar Eclipse of March 20th and the Vernal Equinox of 2015.  It also follows the Full Moon of March 5th.  (Maps other than U.S. can be found via this link.)

We note that this is the last of seven exact aspects in this series.  The aspect is associated with social upheaval, and the last aspect will be the “parting comments” of such current upheaval.  We expect most (or all) of the remainder of 2015 to be influence by this slow moving outer planet aspect.

Here is the World Map for this aspect:

For those who are interested, we have produced a Graphic Ephemeris for this aspect.  The setting is for 45 degrees, with “Mars out” transits.  (No inner planets.)  The dotted line in the chart represents this particular aspect (at 15 degrees).

The Mars aspects to Uranus and Pluto in April and May promise to bring some “exciting times.”  “Things could go boom” at certain points during this period.  (Again, note that this table of aspects does NOT include inner planets such as Sun, Mercury, or Venus.)

Here are the aspects of the Sun to the Uranus/Pluto square in a time map table:

We note that Sun conjoins Uranus and squares Pluto close to the point of the April Lunar Eclipse.

Most interesting in this chart is the cluster of Libra Mercury aspects to Uranus/Pluto before and after the September/October retrograde period.

Jupiter squares Uranus and Grand Cross for 2014

December 16, 2013 at 11:38 pm | Posted in 2014, 2014 Grand Cross, Astrology, Patterns, Predictions | Comments Off on Jupiter squares Uranus and Grand Cross for 2014

The planet to watch in 2014 is Jupiter.  By far it is the most active, with a number of tales to tell.  Ruling the legal system, universities and higher education, animals and animal welfare, and infidelity, Jupiter dominates the outer planet events of 2014 until late November.  (Late November and December has a new and different drama that prepares us for 2015.)  The most potent (explosive) of these is the Grand Cross of April 20th.

Here is a summary of the two squares (the second of which is part of the Grand Cross):

(1) Jupiter squares Uranus on February 26th.  This, and any activating New or Full Moons, sets the stage for the big events on or near August 20th.  Do not be surprised to see explosions, earthquakes, school shooters, etc. at this time.

(2) April 20th: Jupiter Squares Uranus and Opposes Pluto (on the same day!) with retrograde Mars in Aquarius completing the Grand Cross.  All of this happens close to 15 degrees of the four fixed signs (the points in the zodiac associated with the “Quarter Days”).  This is even more volatile than the first square.  Sun is on or near the point associated with the birth of Adolph Hitler.

(3) Particularly interesting are the interlocking Double Yod Keys of November 8th.  These occur with the Sun at 16 degrees (basically aligned with the points of the Grand Cross of April 20th) and the day after the Cross Quarter Day associated with Scorpio.  (We speak of the Cross Quarter Day as it occurs astrologically rather than by any particular tradition or ritual.)

Other activations in April and May show that this may be an “interesting” time for the financial markets.

Groundhog Day 2013: Square Key

Groundhog Day of 2013 is marked by the appearance of a Square Key:

What does this mean?  The combination of squares and inconjuncts will leave people with a feeling that they “need to act.”  The squares will not let people sit still, but the inconjuncts (quincunxes) will leave people with a sense of dissatisfaction regarding whatever they do, or do not, accomplish.

Noteworthy, also, is the Thor’s Hammer (aka “God’s Fist”) that precedes this formation on February 1st.  Moon is at apex of the Thors Hammer while Jupiter and Chiron are on each leg.

The Thor’s Hammer may produce rash action (if not an explosion).  The Square Key will color the reactions which will likely be ineffective or misguided.

New Moon, September 2012

Without doing a detailed analysis, I can tell you that the New Moon tonight makes this a good day to clean out the old and make room for the new.  A few of you may get some amazing bargains as stores unload excess inventory left over from summer to make way for Christmas.

Cainer talks about the Uranus / Pluto square becoming exact next week.  This means, so to speak, that revolution is in the air.  Here is a snippet of what Mr. Cainer has to say:

This week’s powerful alignment of Uranus and Pluto becomes the second in a series of seven celestial right angles that ring out like a giant heavenly bell between 2012-2015. This is our cosmic wake-up call; our reminder to stop dreamily believing that all is fine and start fighting for all that we need to protect and promote.

The regime changes in the Middle East are no surprise, but shifts from theocracy or totalitarian states might be a possibility.  A mere regime change from the old dictatorship to the new dictatorship is not much of a change, and, if that is all the Universe has to offer, then that is a disappointment.  Let’s hope that something more profound occurs, and we see democracy take root in a profound way in that region.

After the Moon enters Libra, not so long after the New Moon tonight, it will create a T-Square with Pluto/Uranus on Sunday.  This will be particularly volatile, and do not be surprised to see some shake-ups, maybe even “things going boom,” circa Monday / Tuesday / Wednesday.  A similar window happens a week later (Moon conjunct Pluto, power struggles and assassinations), the week after that (Moon conjunct Uranus, revolutions and explosions), and maybe even the week after that (another T-Square with Moon at home in Cancer).  All this with the entry of Saturn into Scorpio at hand, and a Mars/Jupiter inconjunct on the day of the T-Square.  (Daily Planetary guide says October 5th for the entry of Saturn into Scorpio, though I have seen a different source that says October 6th.)  We are living in “interesting times.”

Mars/Jupiter anything is explosive (without any Uranian involvement), and the inconjunct is always the aspect of false hopes, miscommunications, and a failure of meeting of minds.  You think you know, but in reality you do not have a clue.

Pluto, part of the T-Square, is essentially stationary and makes a direct station late Monday / early Tuesday (depending on where you live).  Overdue conflicts submerged for some time now come to the surface.  Mercury inconjuncts Neptune on Monday and Chiron on Thursday.  These are Libra / Pisces inconjuncts, also called quincunxes.  More on this in a moment.

Arguably, Thursday might have the “activating events” that really set things into motion, particular since Mercury activates the T-Square IN ADDITION to the inconjunct with Chiron on Thursday.  This is a volatile pattern occurring shortly before the change of seasons, with the Autumnal Equinox on Saturday.  That is immediately followed by a Sun/Neptune Inconjunct in Libra / Pisces.  This particular type inconjunct, Libra / Pisces, is probably more associated with confusion than any other possible pattern.  It could be also associated with unanticipated revelations since Pisces reveals and Libra balances.

For many people, this will be an uncomfortable period, with miscommunications leading to sometimes disastrous revelations or disclosures of otherwise private information.  This could also be a bad time to be a “bad guy,” since they will at least be identified (by justice, often symbolized by Libra) even if they are able to slip away (Pisces, the slippery fish).  If you think you can attack from a hidden position and get away with it, think again.  Quite a few people will be brought to justice during this period.

Mercury retrogrades November 6th, so you should adjust your plans accordingly.  Sign it soon, or in the next few weeks (by mid-October), or postpone it until December.  (Other than the fact that a large number of people are saying that we are facing the “End of the World as We Know It” in December, December might work.)

For those of you waiting for charts, no promises as to when they might be done.  This blog is a volunteer activity done for fun on weekends for most of the year, so Christmas might get here first.  I like to take my time on a chart and ponder what looks “interesting” to me rather than belt them out like a factory.  So, I can only promise that, as long as I am alive, of sound mind, and able bodied next May and June, that I should have the charts that are in the queue now (September 15th of 2012) done by the end of June, 2013.  (That date assumes, of course, we do not encounter The End Of The World between now and then.)  Til then, just a few here and there, maybe 1 or 2 per weekend.  The easy way to keep up is to sign up for the email subscription, and you will be notified when I make a new post.  Or, if you are worried about spam, then setup an RSS feed.  Or, just check back about once a week.

If you need an urgent consultation, then hire a full time astrologer to do it for you.

December 15, 2008 A Day of Profound Power Struggles

Just when you might have thought that whatever happened Friday was “over and done with,” you’ll find it isn’t.

This day is characterized by more inconjuncts, but they don’t offer you the choice that you had on Sunday. These are merely disconcerting and annoying. You might even feel that you have things resolved, but you don’t.

This is a day when tempers can flare. Certain strong personalities may be seem to offer a permanent resolution, but they will fall to the side after a comparatively brief tenure.

If you think it is resolved by today, then by Thursday you’ll be forced to revisit it. You MIGHT can get a solution on Thursday. Maybe
