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!

Mercury conjoins Sun 2015-07-23

2015-07-23 Mercury conjoins Sun:

Today (Thursday, July 23rd) is a bit of an odd day.  TWO Hele aspects (a “key” perhaps?) are present indicating that people are polarizing (really, CONTINUING to polarize) on multiple issues.  TWO interlocking Rosetta aspects are also present (a “key” perhaps?), and this indicates more polarization (in addition to the Hele aspects) but short-lived alliances that may be characterized by treachery.  (e.g. Undercover police infiltrating civil rights groups; undercover civil rights activists infiltrating police; etc. ad infinitum ad nauseum.  Very much “Spy versus Spy.”)

The gift of today is the GREAT ideas that you will get, and maybe some GREAT conversations.  Write it all down with an eye to act on some, most or all of it later.  (The time to act may not be for a few days.  Let things “sort themselves out.”  But, chatter with your closest allies might be worthwhile.)

Most of the time, here, Mercury is combust.  That means most of the day (and, arguably, the preceding week as well as the following week) has a bit of a problem with communications and misunderstanding.  A rather golden window exists in a Cazimi period from about 2 PM CDT to 3 PM CDT (please adjust for your time zone: 3 PM to 4 PM EDT; Noon CDT to 1 PM PDT; and so forth).  Focus your critical communications (and possibly other activities) into the window of this time if at all possible.

One other thing: once Mercury zooms past the Sun (as it is doing here), we can expect another Mercury Retrograde “soon.”  (September 17th.)

The HUGE Thor’s Hammer mentioned yesterday is still in play, and rash people may do things they (or we) regret latter.  Watch out for tempers flaring.  If you might be one of the sane, then watch for crazies.  (But, as Steppenwolf asked, “who’s the sanest of us all?”)

Here is the chart of Mercury conjoins Sun, filtered for the Hele aspects:

Here is the same chart, but filtered for the Rosetta aspects:

And here is, again, the rather large outer planet Thor’s Hammer:

We note the presence of grand trines.  Some opportunities MIGHT be present, but these are not particularly strong and may not be worth the risk given the problems with the Hele / Rosettas present.

Sun Trine Saturn 2015-07-21: Kite, Mystic Rectangle, Hele, and Rosetta

Sun Trine Saturn 2015-07-21

We see a rather curious situation on Tuesday: a Moon v/c overlaps with a void Sun (nobody seems to talk about those, but they do happen about once a month: i.e. the time from when the Sun makes the last major aspect in a sign until when it enters another sign) to create a double void.  These seem like a good time only for cleaning house and getting the trash ready to go out.  (But not actually taking it out until after the sign change because you might accidentally have a lost object in the trash.)

HOWEVER, we see in the chart of this aspect (Sun Trine Saturn) on this day FOUR patterns (not counting HLT’s): (1) A Kite (an opportunity); (2) A Mystic Rectangle (an unusual window which likely contains a special opportunity); (3) a Hele (a strong polarizing influence); and (4) a Rosetta (also a polarizing influence, but the alliances are very fleeting and temporary).

How to interpret?  We are not certain.  Without considering the patterns, we would say this: “The Sun Trine Saturn aspect on Tuesday indicates that this is a time when we work hard and might could accomplish a few things.  Traps exist in (1) a moon v/c from about 6a CDT Tuesday until a little before 9:30a CDT Tuesday and (2) the Sun’s aspect to Saturn that marks a double void that ends when the Moon moves into Libra (but with the Sun still void until 2330 CDT Wednesday).  Stick to routine during these periods.”

But, the patterns are there.  So we modify our recommendation to this: be careful what allegiances your form at this time.  Some will be lasting but others may be treacherous and at best temporary.  Working alone might be the smartest move, but chances are good you might need the help of others.  And at least one opportunity, perhaps a superb opportunity, is hidden within the events of Tuesday.  If your discernment is good, you can gather the resources together today to launch something very special by the time of the next Full Moon.  And, in particular, avoid launching anything important during the double void.

Here are the charts, filtered in sequence for (1) the Kite (an opportunity); (2) the Mystic Rectangle (an unusual window which likely contains a special opportunity); (3) the Hele (a strong polarizing influence); and (4) the Rosetta (fleeting alliances which might be treacherous):

Sun Square Uranus 2015-07-12

Sun Square Uranus 2015-07-12: This square happens twice a year.  With Uranus in Aries, the Sun squares it once when it is in Cancer and once again in Capricorn.  This one follows almost a week after Sun opposite Pluto and it is part of the Uranus Square Pluto drama that has been playing out for several years.

Here is the chart, filtered for squares, oppositions, and t-squares:

2015-07-12 Sun Square Uranus (Squares)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

In terms of manifestations, this looks like part of the ongoing Greece / China / US / global financial meltdown that is currently in play.  We might see violence, riots, and possibly even explosions of some kind related to the current events.

A square key (essentially two interlocking Huber Learning Triangles, one a HLT1 and the other a HLT3) is also present and highlights an inconjunct (quincunx) between Pallas and Mars.  What might seem to be “bright ideas” may crash and burn offering us some “lessons” about how to do (or NOT do) things.

Here is the chart filtered for the Square Key:

2015-07-12 Sun Square Uranus (Square Key)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We also see a Yod present, indicating that a major decision faces us (both collectively and individually).  The decision is an odd one between taking the easy way out (South Node) and facing issues of feasting and famine (Ceres).  The core issue connecting these two paths is one of trust misplaced into betrayal.  (Maybe that is the basis for the financial markets problem.)

Here is the chart:

To be certain, we are living in tumultuous times, and Sunday is likely to be challenging.

Sun Sextile Uranus June 10, 2015

Sun sextile Uranus is typically a once a year event (some years may be an exception during a Uranus Retrograde) and is one of many annual events.  This one is part of a series we have been discussing, including Mars Sextile Uranus on June 9th.

This one differs a bit in that (1) it includes a Mystic Rectangle and (2) the Moon is conjunct the North Node (Karma, hard work but achievement) and (automatically) opposite the South Node (taking the easy way out).  This is a waning moon less than a week away from the New Moon.

Here is the Sun sextile Uranus chart:

2015-06-09 Sun Sextile Uranus Mystic Rectangle

[Click Image to Enlarge]

As always, we think that a special opportunity will present itself to some (most?) people.  (But, especially, Leo, Aquarius, Aries, and Libra.)  But, you must be looking for it to see it.  Keep your eyes open and your awareness up.  Moon conjunct North Node tells us this is another one you will have to work for.  But, multiple kites in play tells us the payoff can be big:

2015-06-09 Sun Sextile Uranus Kites

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We have discussed these kites at length in the Mercury Direct Station entry.  The Thor’s Hammer associated with the Mercury Direct Station of June 11th is also already in play, so you will need to watch your temper.  Seizing the opportunity is not the same as going off the deep end.

Mars Sextile Uranus June 9, 2015

This aspect perfects in the early hours of June 9, 2015 in the United States but is in play for morning rush hour in the U.K. and Europe.  This particular aspect is known to wreak havoc.

2015-06-09 Mars Sextile Uranus

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The Sun makes a similar aspect to Uranus on June 10th, and Sun and Mars conjoin on June 14th.  These aspects can also bring about accidents and violence.  We note that Mars / Sun conjunct in 2013 was associated with this explosion in Texas.  When added into the upcoming Mercury Direct station, we think that this period will (continue to) be a volatile period (at least until we are past the New Moon).

Sun Sextile Jupiter June 8, 2015

Each year, typically once a year, the Sun will make a sextile aspect to Jupiter.  This means they are sixty degrees apart, exactly two signs.  (Some years this happens three times if Jupiter Retrograde becomes involved.)  Generally this is merely a pleasant and benevolent aspect for most people most of the time.

This year, however, a larger window of opportunity opens.  You may have recognized it during the Mystic Rectangle of June 7th (yesterday).  Today you can do something about it.  We urge caution with the Moon waning and Mercury Retrograde, but, even so, you just might be able to do something about it today.  (Be prepared for a few surprises along the way along with the need for a “re-do” or two as well.  But, if it is worth it, then do it.)

This window is built of Kites and Kite-like patterns.  Those are built with Grand Trines, and we present the Sun Sextile Jupiter chart with those patterns highlighted first:

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (Grand Trines)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sadge) particularly benefit at this time.  The Venus / Vesta / Saturn (Retrograde) configuration has huge promise but requires huge work and will definitely include the occasional “test” (setback).  “Things” will change when Saturn goes into Scorpio, and the going may get tough.  But, ultimately, this opportunity can be done if you stick with it.  A “traditional” approach is essential.

Fire signs also benefit from the Jupiter / Pallas / Uranus Grand Trine.  This is part of a Kite we will discuss soon.  Not as much work is required, but completely unlike the other opportunity it requires “out of the box” thinking (NOT traditional).  It is a huge project, and it might consume all of your resources.

Note that air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) can also benefit, but (if you are an air sign) the smart thing to do is to hitch a ride with either the most reliable fire sign you know (Venus / Vesta / Saturn) or the smartest fire sign you know (Jupiter / Pallas / Uranus).

Here is the same chart, but with the Kites emphasized:

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (Kites)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Note that, if you consider the Moon’s North Node (hard work), an air sign Kite is present as well.

We could stop here, and that could be enough.  But even more “kite-like” structures are present in the sky.  Although a bit redundant, we present those in the next two versions of the chart:

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (Kite, Almost (1))

[Click Image to Enlarge]

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (Kite, Almost (2))

[Click Image to Enlarge]

For at least some (possibly many), the focus of these opportunities are likely found in healing opportunities, as indicated by the Mars / Pallas / Chiron T-Square:

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (T-Square Mars, Pallas, Chiron)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Finally, did we mention the “setback” and the “re-do”?  You will face them if you choose the high road  and take the challenge.  These show in two Huber Learning Triangles:

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (Huber Learning 1)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (Huber Learning 3)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We present the 5th Harmonic aspects for those who use them (creatives: writers, poets, artists, etc.):

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (5th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The Moon / Venus BiQuintile especially favors those who work in tangible media such as sculptors.

Here is the 7th Harmonic (Septiles) version:

2015-06-08 Sun Sextile Jupiter (7th Harmonic)

Given the 7th Harmonic aspect between Jupiter (Leo, Direct) and Saturn (0 Sadge, Retrograde), we might see a little shakeup in the financial markets.  (i.e. Stock and Bond prices may become volatile.  Maybe a good time to “short”?)

Be aware that some of the work you do will have to occur after (1) Mercury goes Direct (fraught with its own perils) and (2) we have passed the New Moon.

Mystic Rectangle of June 7, 2015

While many of you may have come to visit this site recently to read about the Full Moon of June 2, you need to know that the really powerful event this week is the Mystic Rectangle of June 7th.  It is in force from 7 AM CDT until about 7 PM CDT.  (8 EDT; 5 PDT).  This is an unusual window of opportunity that will allow you to recognize powerful insights and bring them to fruition.  (Use the time wisely!)

2015-06-07 Mystic Rectangle

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This is an unusually benevolent Mystic Rectangle composed of Sun, Moon, Jupiter, and Pallas.  Bright ideas will come, and they can be made to be reality.  With Mercury Retrograde and nearing its station, we offer that this idea may be one that is overdue or needed to be revisited, and full implementation may not be realized until after June 11th or June 16th.

Here is the chart for the Full Moon of March 5, 2015:

Full Moon Astrological Chart for March 5, 2015 highlights Yod

Full Moon Astrological Chart for March 5, 2015 highlights Yod

[Click Image to Enlarge] calls this a “micro-moon,” noting that it precedes an Eclipse on March 20th and a “Blood Moon” on April 4th.  We start our analysis by noting that another yod is in play in this Pisces (Sun) / Virgo (Moon) FM!  So, again, some KEY DECISION is in play for all of us, both collectively and individually.  We also note that yods (decisions) have been prominent in the sky since last summer.  Whether we realize it or not, the decisions we are making now will affect us for many years to come.  Only hindsight will full reveal why this is (was) true.

A yod featured prominently the recent new moon that precedes this full moon.  Also: here is the FM from March of 2014, the Aries / Libra FM of March 2013, and the equivalent Pisces / Virgo FM in February of 2013.  For those of you who do not know what a full moon (FM) is, try here.  As you will read there, it involves a Sun / Moon opposition, such as an Aries / Libra or (in this case) a Pisces / Virgo opposition.  The Pisces / Virgo FM is the last FM of the astrological year, signifying a time of housecleaning and preparation for the new year (the Vernal Equinox or “first day of spring”).

This FM precedes an upcoming Solar Eclipse as well as the Vernal Equinox of 2015.  Upcoming, also, is Uranus Square Pluto.

This FM (2015) is also characterized by two Hele, one somewhat stronger than the other, which indicate that people will polarize on two (or more) issues.  (Arguably, this is what we have called a “Hele Key” in the past.)  How you decide may be strongly affected by where you stand on these key issues, whatever they may be.  At least we can be thankful for reduced complexity compared to the numerous patterns present in the recent Mercury Direct Station.

For better or worse, and right or wrong, we now believe we know where we stand and are ready to make a decision (if we did not do so previously) and move forward at full speed.

2015-03-05 Full Moon (Basic, Hele x2)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The “stronger” of these two Hele contains Uranus Square Pluto.  For some (many, actually), looking back to events that occurred some time near December 14, 2014 may provide insight to what is happening at the time of this full moon.  February 7, 2015 may also be useful.  Some may wish to look further back to late May of 2010.

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The key lines in the United States map are (1) a Saturn Descendant line that comes near Vancouver, Portland OR, and Las Vegas NV (and a number of other areas between them) and (2) a Hygeia line that goes through Sioux Falls SD and Memphis TN and a number of other points.  We note that this second line crosses a number of other lines, and this part of the South (Arkansas, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Alabama) are quite “lit up” by this FM.  Additional key lines affect the region from New York City to Baltimore MD (Pluto and Ceres), and another line (Pallas) affects Boston.  The region between New York and Baltimore will wrestle with certain important changes that may involve the food supply.  Boston, already a notoriously “intelligent” city, will receive a boost in the form of insights. We offer the Kepler map without interpretations due to the fact that it is so detailed.  We leave it as an exercise for the more motivated reader.

We do note that, per the Kepler map, (1) Albuquerque NM (and the region west of Albuquerque as well as central Mexico) is HIGHLY activated in terms of minor aspects; (2) the coast of California (including San Francisco, again), is also quite activated; and (3) Northern Virginia / DC (and Western PA including PIttsburgh) is quite activated.  Even though these are more “minor” lines compared to the lines in Solar Fire, they are so many of them in these regions that we can only conclude that the regions are activated.  This map also confirms important activations in Memphis (and nearby St. Louis) and Mississippi as well as Southern California.

Kepler offers “Treasure Maps,” and here is the “Love and Romance” treasure map for the U.S. on this Full Moon:

Astrology of 2015-01-09 Taking Sides and Making Decisions

January 8, 2015 at 11:48 pm | Posted in Astrology, Patterns | 4 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

We normally think of a Virgo moon as being relatively benevolent.  But, this day is filled with the Quincunx (aka Inconjunct), and misunderstandings abound.  January of 2015 is rich in patterns, and in this post we are singling out two for analysis.

First, we note that the day is characterized by a Hele (this chart is set at a time chosen by Solar Fire 8 for the beginning on the Hele, but the Hele itself covers roughly a 24 hour period, so the ascendant is not particularly meaningful here):

2015-01-09 Hele

[Click Image to Enlarge]

As we have discussed before, the Hele appears to be a polarizing pattern, encouraging people to choose one of two sides.  (e.g. “police” v. “minorities”)  In the case of this Hele, one side is relatively mainstream or traditional or “the way things have always been.”  This is the Sun/Moon trine (with Vesta in the mix).  The other side is a combination of trust v. distrust (Juno) and surprises (Uranus) with, paradoxically, a tendency to keep things the way they always have been (South Node).  That is, the alternate leg involves issues of trust v. mistrust along with surprises (and possibly innovations).

While the Moon / Juno (internal self and trust issues) side of this Hele is in harmony, the Sun (outer self and authority figures) / Uranus (surprises, explosions, revolutions, insights) is not in harmony.

A hele, by itself, does not necessarily spark action.  But this day also contains a focused yod.  We note that, in addition to requiring a decision and likely action, the focused yod also likely contains possible answers to the questions posed by the Hele:

2015-01-09 Focused Yod

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This focused yod contains Chiron / Juno as one leg and Chiron / North Node as the other.  The choice is between continuing to be caught in issues of trust and distrust, probably mired in them, or doing the hard work necessary to move forward.  With Juno in Leo, we can tell that a great deal of ego is involved and “letting go” just is not going to come very easily.  And the North Node is in Libra and focuses on relationship issues and what some call “give and take.”  The moon provides a possible anwser as it has earlier opposed Chiron and offered answers in the form of work and play (Virgo = work, Pisces = Play) combined with a need to become highly organized in order to move forward necessary healing.

We will close this post by saying that today signifies the work to be done but does not show that the problems are solved.  Today’s messages will be ones of what needs to be done, and what can be done, instead of any final resolution.

Pay attention to what signs and ideas come your way.

One last thing: I check the search engine terms for this site.  One of you ran a search for “astraea paris october eclipse.”  I went back and checked my post on that eclipse, the most recent solar eclipse, and indeed an astraea line is dead center on Paris at the time of that eclipse.  (Thanks to whoever ran the search.)

Again: Pay attention to what signs and ideas come your way.
