2016-04 W15: Forecasts for Week 15 of 2016

Spring is here.  We hope you get out in the sunshine and enjoy it when possible.  We are a month or less away from the Mercury Retrograde station on April 28th, and this is a relatively quiet time astrologically.  Overall, you can “get things done” and should use this window to do just that.  But life is short, so just remember to stop and smell the flowers along the way.

Weeks 15 and 16 are relatively quiet with primarily Mercury aspects bringing us our information and our need to change.  However, Mars is “slowing down” now and will station retrograde on April 17th followed by Pluto station retrograde on April 18th.  Mercury soon follows with station retrograde on April 28th.  “Things” grind to a halt during this window, and we have to review and reconsider our plans and efforts with little forward progress until after Jupiter stations direct on May 9th.

April 2016 (Mars Out)

Week 15 (W15)

Archive of Week 14

Sunday April 3rd

The advantages of Friday and Saturday continue today until the Moon moves void (v/c) at 6:16 PM CDT.  Get done what you can today, and then rest this evening.

Monday April 4th

Moon moves into Pisces shortly before 1 AM CDT and remains there until 5:33 AM CDT Tuesday morning when it goes void again (in Pisces).  You may encounter glitches today, especially regarding the legal system (especially courts), universities (or other higher education), or long distance travel today.  (If none of these apply, then health could be an issue.)  This is true because the Sun (Aries) makes its annual quincunx to Jupiter (Virgo) today.  A very loose mutable T-Square is in play adding to the anxiety and aggravation as we try to make final plans in one of these areas and “things” do not work out as we wish.

If any of this planning involves activities beginning near April 17th through April 28th (and into the Mercury / Mars retrogrades), then iron out the bugs today.  More will likely crop up, but this is a very good time to eliminate as many as you can (especially if this is a vacation).

Tuesday April 5th

This is very much a “two steps forward, one step backwards” kind of day BUT, oddly, you can actually accomplish a FEW things if you persist.  Moon is void before 6 AM CDT but enters what Jim Shawvan (and Lee Lehman) calls an “opportunity period.”  Sun makes its annual trine to Saturn giving us the grit to “get things done.”  Venus enters Aries at almost exactly “high noon” but is void prior to that causing us to stumble some time before that, but we should get right back up and continue.  We WILL stumble again because Mercury is ALSO void until about 6 PM.

HOWEVER, do not start anything “new.”  Hold off on big purchases.

More than one re-do will be required because three planets are void (v/c) today and change signs (aka “sign change boundary”), but if we cannot accommplish something today then we can at least set the stage to get it done some time in the next few.  Illegitimi non carborundum.

Wednesday April 6th

Sun squares Pluto and you will either collapse from the energy expended yesterday or you will become even more determined to fight the fight and get things done.  At least to some degree, the choice is up to you.  Moon is very old, and will favor you if you choose to clear out the grime that has been holding you back.

Again: (1) do not start anything new but (2) you can get a “deal” today since buyers are favored over purchasers.  Just make certain it is something you need and will actually use lest it remain unopened in some corner waiting to be disposed of later, maybe when Mercury is retrograde.

Thursday April 7th

The New Moon occurs early today at 6:24 AM CDT and goes void at 9:56 AM CDT bringing a surprise or insight (or both) with it (Moon conjunct Uranus, both in Aries).  If you have “gotten things done” the past few days, especially with housecleaning and similar prepatory chores, then you might want to ease off today or even take the entire day off.

Friday April 8th

Moon enters Taurus in early morning hours (1:10 AM CDT) and this is a dynamite day to “get things done.”  We hope you rested yesterday, because you will need all the energy you can muster to accomplish “things” today.  Jim Shawvan recommends waiting until after Noon EDT (11 AM CDT / 9 AM PDT) to push forward, but we bet you can at least prepare prior to that.  Use today wisely; not many of these come along.

Saturday April 9th

Today is much like yesterday, except that Sun (Aries) makes its annual conjunction to Uranus bringing an unexpected surprise (or accident depending upon your personal karma).  Moon is void (v/c) in Taurus most of the day, so do expect some weirdness.  Nevertheless, you should still be able to accomplish a few things, especially if they deal with finances, certain kinds of art (especially sculpture), or certain aspects of health (especially involving “beauty”).

By today (Saturday) you will be encountering the occasional “glitch” or “gotcha” that precedes the upcoming Mars / Mercury retrograde stations (April 17th / April 28th respectively).

2016-03 W11: Forecasts for Week 11 of 2016

March 8th is the next lunation, and it is a Solar Eclipse (New Moon).  Many states (including Texas) switch to Daylight Savings Time on the Sunday that follows.

March 2016 (Mars Out)

Week 11 (W11)

Sunday March 6th

After last week, you may want a break but Sun square Saturn will not give you one. Duty calls in some form, maybe business or family, and you must attend to it. Much chatter will emerge, and some of it may be continued disputes form the recent Mercury / Mars aspect (and change of signs). Lessons can be learned and skills can be developed. Pay attention. Get things done. And, when you get a chance, give yourself a break and get some rest anyway.

That would be enough, but Jupiter quincunx Uranus perfects today.  You have felt it building for the last few weeks in the form of a sense of false hopes or miscommunications between issues of bookkeeping or accounting, healthcare (especially healthcare professionals) and issues involving a battle between order and chaos on one hand, and issues of energy, the ability to accomplish tasks, possibly anger or violence, and leadership.  It is all very complex, and you will have to identify how it applies in your particular situation.  But, some time this weekend through the upcoming eclipse you will likely see things “come to a head” in some way.  Change is afoot, and “things” will be different after Tuesday.

Monday March 7th

Mercury semisquares Uranus and any angry words we have spoken in the last few days resurface and may be amplified.  For some people, they will be broadcast and re-broadcast.  Be careful what you say.  Vesta (traditions and “doing things the way we have always done them” is void until 6:50 PM CST and this further contributes to “things” going awry and unintended consequences.  You may have some good ideas (Mars quintile Jupiter), but consider writing them down and saving them for another day.  A Solar Eclipse perfects tomrrow and the Moon is very “old.”  That makes this a better time to “clean house” (literally or figuratively) and reflect rather than take action on new projects.

Tuesday March 8th

Today is the day of the Solar Eclipse, a very special type of New Moon.  Sun and Moon join together and each oppose Jupiter (with each individual opposition perfecting at slightly different times on this same day in most time zones).  Saturn (Sagittarius) squares this combination to form a T-Square.  Virgo / Pisces (and Sagittarius) issues are at the forefront as we begin a new cycle in more than one way.  The New Moon governs the 28 day lunar cycle, but the messages of the eclipse apply at least until the other eclipses later this year.  Ceres (prosperity in general and food in particular) BiQuintiles Black Moon Lilith (a point governing taboo issues in general and taboo sexual practices in particular).  This is a difficult aspect to interpret, and we suggest you identify how it applies in your individual situation.  Pallas BiQuintiles the North Node (another point, associated with karma), and we may have some important ideas about how to handle difficult “karmic” situations in our life.

Wednesday March 9th

Whether perfection of the eclipse fell in on yesterday in your time zone or on today, you will still “feel” it.  As we move further past the eclipse, we can start thinking about taking action on some of the ideas that we have noted on previous days.

BUT, the Moon remains v/c (void of course) from yesterday until 1:39 PM CST. That means we have to wait until some time after 1:39 PM CST to make our desired launch today. Keep in mind that the further you can move away from a “sign change boundary” the better (unless you have Venus or Jupiter near the cusp of Aries). That means later in the day as much as possible.

With the North Node semisextile Black Moon Lilith (both points in space, so to some degree this reflects the Earth’s alignment at this time), we have taboo topics (especially taboo sexual topics) bubbling to the surface and may face some “hard karma” in dealing with them. Today is anything but ordinary for many (if not most) people. Venus Novile Pluto says we can learn a lesson here (both can, and do, deal with Love (Venus) and Sex (Pluto)). Venus is also TriSeptile the North Node, and this brings the idea that doing a totally selfless (best if anonymous, also) act to help someone else might relieve at least a little of our “hard karma.”

Thursday March 10th

This is a busy day with a number of higher order aspects perfecting.  We note Sun conjunct Chiron today.  This is an annual aspect that brings health, education, mentoring, and “the Wounded Healer” to the forefront.  Venus quadrinovile Jupiter tells us that we can learn an important lesson or skill that will serve us well in the future.  Keep in mind that this might seem like something trivial because Quadrinoviles often bring us skills that are useful in thefuture (but not yet currently).  Mercury novile Uranus may bring us one or more additional lessons.  Venus quintile Saturn may also bring us a smart, but practical, idea.  Septiles suggest that we help someone less fortunate than ourselves.

Friday March 11th

Today you may feel an urgent need to get things done, but that may not go so well unless you are working writing poetry or song lyrics, doing a photoshoot, or making a video or movie. Scammers and thieves will tend to be more active today, so make certain you do not believe anything a stranger says or buy what they try to sell you. Even family members may be suspect. Stick to the poetry or photography.

Saturday March 12th

Venus enters Pisces today.  This is great for creatives, one of the best possible situations, but not so good for finances.  Similar to yesterday (except that it is with us for a few weeks), this empowers scammers.  Put off major purchases for a few weeks if at all possible.  Certainly avoid speculative endeavors.  As mentioned before, the best use of these few weeks is in developing your abilities with writing poetry or lyrics, photography, or videography.  Other arts may flourish also, but the ones explicitly mentioned work best.

Sun Conjunct Neptune 2016-02-28 (Square Key + Hele)

Sun Conjunct Neptune 2016-02-28 (Square Key + Hele)

The aspect is great for poets and photographers, but it is not so good for signing contracts or forming alliances.  Nevertheless, a Hele is present, indicating that you can form a long term alliance at this time.  But, the Square Key is telling us that (whether or not you form the alliance) you will learn “lessons.”  Form the alliance, and you will learn “lessons” (aka work through Karma).  Refuse to form the alliance, and you will pay a price for that, also.  Maybe it is just better to take pictures and write poetry today.

Here is the chart for perfection of the aspect, filtered for the Square Key:

Forecast for Tuesday, January 5, 2016

Tuesday is EXTREMELY busy, and any one of three situations COULD dominate the day.  Do not be surprised if problems and issues come in “threes” today.

Most people (astrologers) consider any one of these to be “bad,” or “difficult,” or “a ‘growth experience.’”  (Take your pick, depending on your worldview.  But, all are different descriptions of the same underlying events.)  Mercury / Mars “just happened” in late December, and, effectively, we have never left it.  M/M is one of the more dangerous aspects, and coupled with the “overdue issues that need to be revisited” aspect of Mercury Retrograde it may be extra dangerous today.  Be careful today, and consider staying home.

That said, SOME people CAN harness all this juice.  Just know that you will need to be looking at old projects that may be coming ripe for a resurrection, and that you will need to “cross every ‘t’ and dot every ‘i.’”  If someone gets too aggressive or pushy about a “deal,” then back out of it and put it (and them) on ice for review on another day.  A New Moon is only a few days away anyway, and if you are a regular reader of this blog then you know that we recommend the period before a NM for clearing away clutter and cleaning to prepare for some kind of launch AFTER the NM.  And you might have to wait much later, maybe until some time AFTER the Direct Station on January 25th.

[edit]  Actually, an important fourth consideration is in play also: Venus Squares Neptune.  It is the aspect of the passionate but short-lived romance.  It is the stuff of great movies about love lost and heartbreak and the question of “whether or not it is better to have loved at all.”  It also is the aspect of ripoffs and scammers and “things that sound too good to be true.”  If you encounter that today, then know that it is too good to be true.  That is almost a certainty on this date.  And, if you combine it with the other aspects (such as Mercury Square Mars), things could turn very “ugly” (meaning violent or even deadly).  This aspect, normally “mostly harmless,” makes this particular day extraordinarily deadly for some people.

Since some people may have trouble visualizing the kind of dangerous situation we are describing, we offer this video of a classic song as a metaphor to clarify the uncertain:

 

Sun Conjunct Pluto 2016-01-05 (Thor’s Hammer)

Sun Conjunct Pluto 2016-01-05 (Thor’s Hammer)

This is an annual transit, likely to continue in Capricorn for a few more years, and in this case has a Thor’s Hammer as the dominant pattern.  Watch out for dangerous people, places, and things during day’s with Thor’s Hammer patterns.  This is a slightly slower moving pattern (than, say, the Moon), so the day before and day after may be risky, also.  We would not be surprised to see a strong movement in the financial markets somewhere in the three day window (day before, of, and after, the perfection of the aspect).

Here is the chart of perfection of Sun conjunct Pluto this year, filtered for the Thor’s Hammer:

2016-01-05 Sun Conjunct Pluto (Thor's Hammer)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The Sun / Pluto opposition (companion to this chart) perfects on July 7th of this year.  And, this year, this aspect perfects the day after Mercury Retrograde station.  Problems overdue for “attention” are likely to show themselves at this time.
