Mercury conjunct Saturn (with a Yod and more) 2015-11-24

Late in the U.S. on November 24th (and in the early morning hours for the EU/UK), Mercury conjunct Saturn perfects.  We note that Saturn and Neptune are so close to perfecting their first square, that Mercury square Neptune perfects only two hours later (after midnight in all time zones except PST).  Therefore, both should be discussed.  And, a Yod is in play, the Moon is at almost exactly 170 degrees from the Sun (with the Full Moon of November 2015 perfecting the next day), and a number of other patterns are perfecting and dissolving on the 24th and 25th.  We show this chart filtered for the Yod in play at time of perfection:

We note that the apex of the Yod is found at the South Node, associated both with old, well worn habit patterns and “taking the easy way out.”  It is “doing things the way we have always done them,” and it is a bit like Vesta.  However, the South Node is also about a failure to make progress.  One leg of this yod ties to Juno (wives, sisters, and women in similar roles as well as issues of trust and betrayal) and the other leg of the yod ties to Astraea (law and the legal system).  If you have been treacherous with someone, are you going to make amends with them, or are you going to do battle with them in the legal system?  Please do note that you will have a strong tendency to do whatever it is you have done in the past, and doing something different may prove difficult despite the idea, “in theory,” that you have a choice.

That said, the actual aspect, Mercury conjunct Saturn, is rather famous for being able to complete detailed and meticulous work.  But Saturn is near perfection of a square to Neptune, and this means that Mercury square Neptune perfects within a few hours.  In a natal chart, Mercury square Neptune tends to be associated with alcohol and drug abuse.  It can be associated with lying and deception.  But it is also a superb aspect for writing poetry, lyrics, possibly fiction, photography, and videography.  If you find it difficult to sleep tonight, maybe you should review the detail work you wisely did before perfection of this aspect and look for the poetry in it.  Failing that, simply write some poetry or maybe perform some creative photography.  This is a good window and a good use for such things.  Moving beyond the messiness of Mars quincunx Neptune earlier in the day is a worthwhile endeavor, especially if you have learned the lesson you needed to learn and can move forward.

Keep in mind that the Full Moon perfects tomorrow, and if you possibly can you want to bring to a close the important steps in any project you are trying to grow at this time.

So I couldn’t wait for Mars to move off his Conjunction to Jupiter on Friday and Saturday (expanded/Jupiter nervous energy/Virgo for action/Mars) as I was wanting to get to the meat of a major Transit that is just really beginning, again, to be felt in earnest: Saturn in Sagittarius Square Neptune in Pisces. On Mar 15 of this year, Saturn Stationed Retrograde at 4:56 Sagittarius just inside a 3 degree orb to Neptune at 7:54 Pisces. Events near that time were a foreshadowing of what is come as they exact 3 Squares over the next 8year: Nov 26, 2015 and Jun 18 and Sep 10, 2016.

Saturn Retrograded into Scorpio from Jun 15 – Sep 17, 2015 wrapping up our accountability around intimacy and sharing of resources stories (Karmic) when Saturn Trined Neptune 3 times in 2012-2013.. Now back in Sagittarius for the next 2+ years, the energy of Saturn’s…

Is what we see real? Is it a illusion? Is there a barrier between realms? If it is all an illusion then why do our actions have consequences? A day of metaphysical pondering awaits!

Disillusion – Neptune square Saturn

Well said.

emerging pattern

Dream versus reality, fantasy versus fact, ocean versus earth: Saturn in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces is closing in – the first square will occur 26.11.2015 at 7°.

The world feels like a harsh place these days. Terror in France and Libanon, war at so many places on earth, with religion as a driving force, so much faith without love, so many people fleeing their homes, so much fear and no answers.

When Saturn and Neptune meet next week, they will touch my natal Neptune in Sagittarius, exact at 7°. The last weeks I fought my personal  fear and disillusion. I felt alone and disconnected. Maybe this is the shadow of this aspect, but there is light somewhere. Saturn will sextile my natal Jupiter in Aquarius and my natal Pluto at 6° Libra, so he will act supportive in a natal trine that gives me lots of transformational energy.

* NEPTUNIAN November Infusion & SATURN square NEPTUNE – Paranoia, and the Reality of Our Interconnectivity

Melanie's Astro~News

NEPTUNE in PISCES, presently retrograde and ‘stationary’ (apparently very very slowly moving backwards in the Zodiac, from Earth perspective) goes direct on Nov 18, AND will be also squared by SATURN in SAG on Nov 26 (the effect of this transit is noticeable all Nov and Dec).

SATURN and NEPTUNE have a 35-year cycle together (from conjunction to square to opposition to conjunction). The present SATURN – NEPTUNE cycle started with their conjunction in 1989 when the Berlin Wall came down, setting off an avalanche of crumbling of the Communist regimes in Eastern Europe.

Neptune

NEPTUNE in its own domain of PISCES (from 2012 until 2026) is in Nov and Dec one of the focal points in the Astro~Weather, since it’s changing direction from Earth perspective. It’s a good idea to be aware of its Archetype, and able to recognize what’s up when we’re getting ‘hooked’.

NEPTUNE is a transpersonal planet…

The Diamond of Thanksgiving Day 2014

Thanksgiving Day of 2014 is marked by a diamond pattern that lasts most of the day.  Here is the simplified chart:

Diamond of 2014-11-27 Thanksgiving Day

[Click to Enlarge]

We think this is a mostly benevolent pattern.  With Hygeia prominent and retrograde, health and healthcare issues will be at center stage.  This Thanksgiving many will be thinking about avoiding overeating and the perils to health that can bring.  Ceres and Venus (12 and 13 Sagittarius, respectively) will also emphasize this same theme.  The involvement of the nodes here tell us that some people will overdo it, and this may prompt a “wakeup call” for some.

Here is the same chart, but with an aspect grid and legends (Solar Fire “Beginners” chart):

Diamond of 2014-11-27 Thanksgiving Day (Beginners)

[Click to Enlarge]

A number of other interesting aspects are in play.  Venus (Sadge) is still square Chiron (Pisces) emphasizing healing issues further.  These may be emotional and familial rather than physical.  Sun has recently (the day before) completed a square to Neptune, which also emphasizes healing and mercy in the high form but can involve deception or drugs / alcohol in the low form.  Astraea is near a sign change (moving from Pisces to Aries) suggesting that some overdue justice may emerge in the days following Thanksgiving.

Here is the video of the pattern:

Here are some other commentaries on Thanksgiving, 2014:

Financial Markets and Saturn and Chiron and Pluto 2008

Tags: , , , , , ,

After a bit of thought, I’ve decided that I’m glad that not so many people read this blog.  If you read “2008 June 26 Uranus Retrograde Chart set in DFW” then you know that I predicted a shakeup in September.  If you are dialed into this at all, I’d hope you would re-read the above article in great detail.  What I said, and continue to predict, is that this shakeup simply isn’t over.  The activity in September / early October is just a punctuation mark on the way to the rest of the story.  Saturn Inconjuncts Chiron on October 8th.  Since Saturn has a 28 year orbit and Chiron a 56 year orbit, this doesn’t happen much.  It happens even less than the Jupiter / Saturn dances that classically characterize financial “changes.”

Of course an activating aspect is needed.  (Read my other writings about activating events (typically new or full moons).)  Monday is Sun Square Jupiter, a time of often overly ambitious overspending.  The Venus / Saturn / Chiron aspects of Tuesday and Wednesday October 7th and 8th will produce MORE revelations about the “structural soundness” of the world economy as well as the U.S. Economy.  Don’t be surprised to receive interesting “news” on these days, either.  By the Full Moon of October 14th, some of these truths will be unavoidable.  Deceit will continue, but the liars and cheats will find it more difficult to perpetrate the fraud.  So to speak, “Main Street” has had enough.

The key thing to remember, here, is that a huge unbridled bailout (Jupiter) is NOT the answer here.  The answer requires intense work on the “fundamentals” of the economy and finance system.  The time has arrived for a profound belt-tightening.  I’ll say a little more about October, but the real key will be found “about” the time of Thanksgiving Day.  Maybe the Wednesday before Thanksgiving will be the turning point, or maybe it will be Thanksgiving itself.

That said, other rough spots in October: Refuse to succumb to any temptation to be impetuous on October 14th.  This is a “feel good” full moon day that will tempt many to act rashly.  Don’t get sucked into THAT trap.

October 15th Mercury “goes direct” and this means on the 15th or following few days something “overdue” will be handled.  The classic example for some of you is the arrival of an overdue check.

The Grand Trine of Thursday October 23rd will make that a very powerful MORNING (afternoon for Brits) to get things done.  Energies “flip” in afternoon and this is a time to rest and maybe reconsider.

Chiron goes direct on October 25th.  On or about that time we’ll get a crucial message about some kind of healing.  This will definitely affect the financial markets, but also anyone with health problems.  Frankly, I’m a bit worried about Social Security and Medicare.

By Monday the 27th, the new issue of “healing” causes tempers to flare in a profound way.  Expect a battle royale.  “Things” could be very nasty.

The Scorpionic New Moon of the 28th is difficult to interpret.  The conflict of Monday can be read three ways: (1) it is dead & gone; (2) it has been swept under the rug and is festering; or (3) the firefight of Monday has gone totally covert.  Guns are traded for poisons.

The dance of Mercury and Neptune on Wednesday indicate confusion and overextended idealism at best.  At worst, they are about significant deception in a time when honesty is desperately needed.

The firefights of Thursday and Friday could be avoided if you find a safe athletic activity to participate in.  But, covert operations may be at risk for exposure on these days.

This might be one really scary Halloween.

Neptune turns direct Saturday and Sunday.  A planet of “happiness” often in the form of delusion or deceit, Neptune is also excellent at exposing secrets.  This will particularly apply to those born in the late 1950’s and 1960’s.  This is a good time to turn off the cell phone and hide with a good book or movie.  Harry Potter would work well.

Tuesday, November 4th is election day.  This one reminds me of the one in 2000 that was ENTIRELY in a moon void of course.  (“nothing will come of this” or perverse outcomes)  This one has Mars Square Neptune (Bill Clinton may be prominent this day for some unexplainable reason); Saturn in Opposition to Uranus (very, very financial); and (like 2000) the ENTIRE election is Moon v/c.

I predict an outcome similar to 2000, except dramatically more important.  Frankly, this is going to be a terrible mess.  And, in hindsight, we’ll all know that the outcome was crucial.  (Why?  because of the outer planet stuff in the prior paragraph, especially Saturn Opposite Uranus, a once every fourteen years event.)

I’m not sure what was going on politically about 14 to 15 years ago, but it holds important answers for this election.  Even more so is whatever happened 28 to 30 years ago.  To understand what will happen here, look to the election of 1976 and what happened then consequent to the times of the “Arab Oil Embargo.”

November has different events, but the kicker will be when Pluto re-enters Capricorn on Wednesday the 26th of November.  This is the day before Thanksgiving.  Pluto is highly “contractile” and so is Capricorn.  Money will be tight, far tighter than it is at the time I write this (Oct 4th).  This kind of “feeling” will continue through Christmas and the end of the year.  The “Islamic New Year” on December 29th may be a turning point of some kind.
