We see some particularly intense Thor’s Hammer patterns emerging during the period from December 9th through December 13th of 2014.  Particularly intense are the patterns from about 10 PM (2200 CST) of December 11th through about 9 AM (0900 CST) of December 12th.  Here is one chart that stands out (large number of planets in 12th house + eighth house void moon):

Needless to say, this is a period of great instability.  Here is a (somewhat long) animation of the period from Decmeber 9th to December 13th.

Here is the New Moon chart for November 2014.  At 0 degrees Sagittarius, this NM makes a statement (and it precedes the even stronger statement by the Capricorn NM at the Winter’s Solstice this year).  Here is the basic chart:

New Moon 2014-11-22 (Beginner)

[Click to Enlarge]

We will leave the discussion of the significance of the NM at 0 degrees Sadge to others and focus on the patterns of aspects instead.

First, if one includes the asteroid Hygeia (health, healing, and healthcare) and the North Node (not a planet but an indicator of “karma” or “work to be done”), the continuing Uranus/Pluto square forms a grand cross (as discussed in an earlier post).  We will not duplicate that post here but instead note that a great deal of “tension” to “get things done” will be felt at this time by many.  Key issues will include unexpected events (Uranus) or hopefully insights regarding healing (Hygeia) and drugs or medications (Pluto, sometimes) and possibly some work that needs to be done involving the relationships between certain people.  (Who?  Only you, dear reader, can answer that based on your situation!)

Here is the same chart, but reduced to emphasize the grand cross in play:

New Moon 2014-11-22 (Beginner, Grand Cross)

[Click to Enlarge]

Also mentioned previously are the grand trines in play (again, using asteroids), though now they are greatly reduced from when the Moon was in Cancer.  Opportunities are still available, but the window is not as strong as earlier.

Tying these two sets of patterns together, we have two “almost” kites:

New Moon 2014-11-22 (Kite, Almost, 1)

[Click to Enlarge]New Moon 2014-11-22 (Kite, Almost, 2)

[Click to Enlarge]

For someone “willing to do the work,” the payoff can be significant!

We also see the Thor’s Hammer (God’s Fist) pattern.  Actually, we see TWO of them, which we call a “Thor’s Hammer Key.”  (We note that all of these use asteroids.  Neither is composed entirely of major planets.)

Some will feel urgency to take action, and this may be rash action that might include violence.  Some things might go “boom.”

Looking for a “more intuitive” and “less technical” approach?  Try this video:

Once you have watched that video, re-read our analysis and see if it makes more sense!

If nothing else makes sense, then try this: TEST the “News Year’s Resolutions” you have planned for 2015 to see WHAT WORKS starting with this New Moon.  Avoid that same old cycle of unrealistic high hopes on January 1st followed by quitting on the third Monday in January (aka “Blue Monday”).  This is your chance to do something different this year!

And if you are wanting to QUIT something (e.g. smoking), you will want to start “quitting” during the preceding period when the Moon is in Scorpio, especially on the evening of November 21st.  (Dark of the Moon.)

If you are quitting smoking (or anything similar), go park yourself somewhere SAFE and AWAY from your usual environment for (a minimum of) three days (until the Moon is in Capricorn or beyond).  (Instructions only applicable to NM of November 22nd; other NM’s will have different approaches.  If you are trying to stop drugs or alcohol then you may need a medical detox.  Don’t do anything dangerous!)

Double Thor’s Hammer Period of 2014 November 14

As we have mentioned elsewhere, some events in astrology simply are not well described as a “point.”  Here we have a Double Thor’s Hammer (we call it a “Double Thor’s Hammer Key”) on the evening (in Plano) of November 14th:

As an aside, here is a chart of the moment that we uploaded that video (the first such upload on this blog).  (We note that Moon is conjunct Algol, and Mars/Pluto are on the Ascendant!  NOT done intentionally, and a bit scary!)

Adam Lanza Natal Chart (No Birth Time)

December 15, 2012 at 3:29 pm | Posted in Astrology, FamousPeople, NatalChartAnalysis | 9 Comments
Tags: , , , , ,

(For more details, please also read the preliminary analysis.)

Here is the birth chart for Adam Lanza.

Adam has a Thor’s Hammer (aka “God’s Fist”) in his natal chart. (We will discuss this in more detail in the commentary below.)

Since birth time is unknown, we have cast his chart as Sun Conjunct Ascendant (Sun CONJ ASC).  Here is the chart:

Natal Chart, Birth time unknown.  Used Sun Conjnunct Ascendant

Natal Chart, Birth time unknown. Used Sun Conjnunct Ascendant

Natal Chart, Birth time unknown. Used Sun Conjunct Ascendant

[Click to Enlarge]

We note that the Ascendant and Midheaven must be ignored in this chart, and the exact position of the Moon is unknown (just “early Capricorn”).  This chart has a LARGE number of squares and sesquiquadrates.  Indeed Venus (in Aries) has two squares and a sesquiquadrate!

(Update 12/15 @ 1445 CST, continued from above:)  We discussed the Thor’s Hammer earlier here and here.  Also known as the “Quadriform,” this pattern is also described here.)  Often associated with earthquakes and explosions, the Thor’s Hammer can be a very dangerous aspect.  In Adam’s case, Jupiter is the Apex Planet and has Venus on one side and BOTH Neptune and Uranus on the other side.  (Our name for four or more planets in a Thor’s Hammer pattern is “Thor’s Hammer Key.”  It is an amplified form of the already dangerous Thor’s Hammer.)

Jupiter is a great amplifier of things, and we suspect that any conflict Adam had with his mother or the school was hugely amplified by this Jupiter in a position to cause an “explosion” (gunshots, in this case).  We note that his Venus was highly afflicted in a number of ways, and come to an even stronger version of the conclusion that some kind of “atypical romance” may have been an important piece of the puzzle.

Uranus is associated with explosions, Jupiter in aspect with Uranus is associated with big explosions (or lotto winners), and this particular pattern is the most explosive of all.  (We have noted earlier that a major explosion happened on the date of Adam’s birth.)  Adam was, indeed, wired like a bomb waiting to explode.  (We are a bit surprised that he used guns instead of explosives.  Maybe it was because guns were easier to use than explosives.)

That said, we do not quite believe in “fate” but in “propensities.”  We bet that a large number of people were born on this date.  We suspect that a large number of them had one or two “bad days” this week. What could lead someone like Adam to choose to commit a massacre?

We still wonder what triggered Adam’s explosion.  Was he treated unfairly or falsely accused of something?  (We are asking a question, not making a statement.) SOMETHING triggered this disproportionate response.  What was it?

Whatever it was, it was disproportionate.  In researching this article, I came across this blog entry.  It strikes to the core of the issue.  And, here, the core of the issue is not guns.  The core of the issue is mental health.

I urge you to read ithttp://anarchistsoccermom.blogspot.com/2012/12/thinking-unthinkable.html

That said, back to the astrological analysis.

As mentioned in the preliminary analysis, Adam had a Grand Earth Trine (ordinarily a marker of someone of great financial wealth) that was activated by the recent entry of Saturn into Scorpio.

  1. Saturn’s entry into Scorpio (October 6th and beyond) creates a kind of instability in his grand earth trine.
  2. Saturn semi-squared his Uranus / Neptune (and activated the Thor’s Hammer some time after October 6th).
  3. The “straw that broke the camel’s back” happened with the new moon of the 12th / 13th that squared his natal Mars.
  4. He acted at the time of his (nearby) personal new moon.

We stick with the idea that we wrote about 12 hours ago (about 2am locally) that we think something happened on the 12th or 13th (before the New Moon) that set in motion the events of this tragedy.

We have located two points that we think worthy of mention here:

  1. Jude Cowell points out that Mars (in Capricorn) recently transited Adam’s natal Uranus and Neptune.  This was almost certainly a major contributor as well.
  2. Over at AstroDispatch, the author points out that Pluto (in Capricorn) is conjunct (we think) Adam’s natal Moon.  This is a long-term high stress aspect.

We do not have a birth time to build an ascendant, but we are going to risk doing an analysis with a rectified chart (something we avoid).  We were going to set the birth time at 4:20 pm because that aligns the moon in the natal chart with the moon in the December 14th 9:18 am Double Yod Key (DYK) chart.

However, by moving the time to 2:50 pm, we move the ruler of the 10th into the 8th house.  (Gemini on the 10th, and Mercury on the 8th.)  This is a well-known marker of those who become famous in death, and it is not possible in all configurations but it is on this particular date of birth.  (JFK’s natal chart is a textbook example of this; he had Leo on the 10th and Sun in the 8th.  Of course, he was victim rather than perpetrator.  But, the point is that he became particularly famous in death, consequent to his assassination.)

This chart has Jupiter rising and in the 12th (the house of Self-Undoing) and Sun, Venus, and Mercury in the 8th house (house of Death).  Pluto (planet of death) is in the 3rd house (of children), and Mars (planet of violence and war) is in the 7th house (of relationships with others).  We think this chart is a very good candidate chart:

Adam Lanza (Ruler of 10th in 8th) 12-15-2012 4-03-48 PM

[Click to Enlarge]

Our second choice (mentioned earlier) is the chart that aligns the Moon with the Moon in the Double Yod Key chart:

Adam Lanza (DYK Align, Thor) 12-15-2012 3-42-10 PM

[Click to Enlarge]

We note that the ascendant in this chart (24 Virgo) is trine Algol (26 Taurus), and that the Sun is in the 8th (death) house.  We have illustrated the Thor’s Hammer relationship in the chart.

We do note that we are reluctant to attempt rectification at all.  But, these are our best guesses.

Once again, the Thor’s Hammer (aka Fist of God) shows in a disaster. Actually, this is a Double Thor’s Hammer.

Moon (only a degree away from the Algol point) is sesquiquadrate the Retrograde Saturn (overdue tribulations). Moon squares both Chiron (wounds) and Neptune (sea); both Chiron and Neptune are sesquiquadrate Saturn. (However, the actual earthquake does not occur until the Moon enters Gemini and, simultaneously, a Mystic Rectangle forms.)

Double Thor’s Hammer Chart:

As mentioned, the event is actually triggered by the entry of the Moon into Gemini with a simultaneous Mystic Rectangle:

Another Mystic Rectangle will form 6:50 (six hours and 50 minutes) after the first one. Could this be aftershocks or a second quake?

Or, should we rotate the chart to fit the planets into the Eighth House (which probably means Northern California)?

Mercury Retrograde April 2010 and Focused Yod

April 17, 2010 at 10:53 am | Posted in Astrology, Predictions, Weekends | Comments Off on Mercury Retrograde April 2010 and Focused Yod
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

This Retrograde Station seems to be keeping in the times of earthquakes, airliner crashes, and mine explosions. The Algol Moon of the Spring Equinox seems to have indicated this as well. We see, with this station, a Focused Yod that last several days, through April 19th, a Double Yod Key the hour before the exact moment of the station, and a Thor’s Hammer (God’s Fist) the hour after the exact moment.

From a personal perspective, this is likely to be a difficult weekend in which old dramas are rehashed and tensions increase as accidents occur.  As is always true at this time of year, tragic accidents with teens or college students are almost certain to happen.  Please make extra efforts to keep you and yours safe.

Mercury Retrograde in General

Mercury Retrograde has a bad reputation, and it deserves it. It is associated with communications and transportations problems that bring us to a halt or even make us move backward. This particular retrograde lasts until May 11th of this year. That is a little long for a Mercury Retrograde.

Previously this year we had a Mecury Retrograde that started in December of 2009 and concluded January 15th. We will have two more this year: (1) August 20th until September 12th and (2) December 10th until December 29th.

Mercury Retrograde does have uses. The core issue in MR is double checking everything or suffer the consequences. Earthquakes reveal shoddy construction where what was needed was not what was done. Mine explosions elucidate shortcuts in safety that caused lost lives. Airplane crashes likely show similar factors.

Thursday, about 48 hours ago, this astrologer saw a five car pileup on North Central Expressway (NCX) here in Dallas (aka DFW or “the Metroplex”). Transportation (and communication) especially suffers from events such as tailgating in this period.

Besides highlighting what needs to be done, MR also is a period where efforts to retrieve that which was lost may be successful. Frozen projects may be thawed. Items lost in the closet, shed, or garage may be found. This is a very good time to clean and organize and profit from those efforts.

Here is the chart for this MR, followed by specific charts and analysis for the Focused Yod (this is about making crucial decisions).

Noteworthy are the highly active midpoint trees for Saturn (authority), Uranus (accidents, explosions, earthquakes, etc.)  and Chiron (the need to teaching and healing).


The Focused Yod

The Focused Yod of this period, which lasts for several days, is likely the most important pattern.  This is a period of crucial decision making.  Mercury Retrograde here says the we must take the time to slow down and do things write.  Familiar with the old saying “there is never enough time to do things right but always enough time to do things over”?  Here, we are having to do things over.  And, if we do not get it right this time, we will probably revisit again, and again.  The next to “opportunities” to get it right are late August and mid December.  Probably best to get it right, now.

This Focused Yod has Saturn (authority) in one of many of a series of oppositions to Uranus.  The issues here are large scale and will be revisited in years to come.  But this period, the next few days, will be seen in history as a turning point in this conflict between old authority and new revolutionary (but sometimes a bit “nuts”) ideas.  Neptune and Chiron suggest insights blended with confusion on one side of the decisions.  The Sun, which is management and authority (neither new nor old) is on the other side.  Traditionally, that which is today represented by Uranus (Prometheus) was represented by Saturn as well.  Saturn was viewed as most distant from the Sun, and “opposite” as Aquarius (Uranus) from Leo (Sun).

So, here, a “good” decision is possible that does not heal the problem.  We will all like it, but the solution will not be nearly as long lasting as the problem.  This is solution found in the Sun (one year orbit) will not last as long as the problem(s) (Saturn, 28 year orbit, opposite Uranus, 84 year orbit).  Worthy of note: the orbit of Uranus is a multiple of three of that of Saturn.  Every time Uranus returns to a particular place, Saturn has orbited three times.  In a sense, this means Uranus ultimately “wins” over Saturn.  Change is the only constant.

The other decision, Neptune and Chiron, also LOOKS good but takes us through a time of murky unclear difficulty in which insights gained will teach us what we need to know to resolve the problem in question.

In any case, we will be unhappy (quincunx, always) and look back longingly at the ‘road not taken’ during this crucial period.  Here is the chart:

Double Yod Key

Double Yod Keys are generally considered to be a new construct in astrology.  As such, they are not fully understood.  (What pattern is?)  From recent experience, DYK’s appear to indicate multiple decisions and multiple events.  DYK’s are associated with three decisions (at least).  But, also, recently, DYK’s occurred with the triple categories of events of (1) earthquakes, (2) accidents (airplane, mine, & other), and (3) explosions (mine, terrorists, etc.).  Everything comes in threes, right?  Here is the chart of the DYK just before the precise moment of the Mercury Retrograde Station:

Note that the Ascendant is one of the four points, and it is at 25 Scorpio and continues in aspect until the Ascendant enters Sadge.  Almost certainly this point of 25 Scorpio (opposite Algol at 26 Taurus) is a harbinger of additional ill-fate.

Thor’s Hammer (God’s Fist)

This Retrograde Station has a Thor’s Hammer about an hour after the station.  It is yet another punctuation mark that the earthquakes, accidents, and explosions may not be over yet.  They could easily continue as Sun, Mercury, and Venus move past Algol (through May).  Here is the chart.

Please post comments, especially if you would like to see maps.

March 31, 2010 Moon Enters Scorpio: A Time to Quietly Get Things Done

March 31, 2010 at 10:04 am | Posted in Astrology, Patterns, Predictions | 1 Comment

Two patterns dominate today’s sky as the Moon enters Scorpio.  Both of them demand action.  The potential for more damage or violence exists here.

The first is known as Thor’s Hammer or the Quadriform.  It is also known as “God’s Fist.”  From the article just linked to:

Other astrologers see the energy flow originating in the apex planet, which then must find a way to wield the power and dynamic stress of the square planets. It’s a little like holding a live grenade – what do you do with it?? You need to find a way to use it constructively and creatively, or the energy can become destructive. This image is like a Hammerhead or God’s Fist.

Here, the planets are the Moon (in Scorpio), Mars (in Early Leo, square to the Moon), and Jupiter in Pisces sesquiquadrate to both.  How will you use this energy?  The following chart is entry into perfection of the Thor’s hammer at 9pm local (Dallas) time:

But, earlier, a Double Thor’s Hammer occurred.  The second square involved is Mercury square Mars, so both patterns are connected by the common planet Mars.  This larger pattern made of two embedded patterns is not an acknowledged pattern, but the pattern is obvious, and so is what the name should be:

Of course, this is a bit like having a hand-grenade in EACH hand, and the explosive power is provided here by Mars (maximum explosive power).  Actually, this should be called a “Left Double Thor’s Hammer” since an alternative form, the “Right Double Thor’s Hammer” can exist.  (Or, if you prefer the less dramatic: Left Double Quadriform and Right Double Quadriform).

The other pattern is a Hele.  The pattern was recognized recently, in 2004, by Sally Fisher (according to the link just provided).  Here, Uranus and Neptune are in a semi-sextile.  Uranus trines Mars (a potentially bad aspect regarding bombs and terrorism) and Moon trines Neptune (which either leads to great creativity or things being cloudy and obscured).  Moon and Mars complete the pattern with their square.

Only recently recognized, not much is known about the Hele.  But, the two trines involving two planets with large orbits (Uranus 84 years / Neptune 160 years) implies that the events of today (and maybe the past few days) will have significant consequences for many years to come.  Although maps would be “nice,” choosing a specific point in time is difficult.  For example, would it be the Moon ingress to Scorpio or the perfection of Moon square Mars?  When the Hele perfected?  When the Quadriform(s) perfected?

The two patterns are intricately connected and make two different but inter-related pronouncements on the same matters (Moon in Scorpio square Mars in Leo).  In fact, this might be considered some greater pattern, a superset of both embedded patterns.  In a sense, this pattern looks a bit like a square key or double yod key (prevalent yesterday).

The author of this blog (who prefers to be anonymous until after his death, and only known as “Grand Trines”) will therefore dub this, as alternative synonyms, the Quadriform Key or the Hele Key.  (And, arguably, it could be called a “Thor’s Hammer Key” (more dramatic than the other names) or the “God’s Fist Key” (the most dramatic of all).)

Then again, maybe someone else (Grant Lewi?) found the same thing in the 1930’s.  (But, as of this writing, no clear evidence exists of any prior recognition or naming.  But the author of this website is a fan of Lewi’s, so he gets a plug.)

Here are the two versions of the chart:
