We start with the chart of the Mercury Direct Station of June 11, 2015 as determined by SolarFire 8 using the Electional Search option with Longitudinal speed set to “> 0.00.”  We have initially filtered it to highlight a particularly strong Thor’s Hammer pattern that is in play at the time of the Direct Station:

Venus, Chiron, and Pallas are in play.  Rash behavior at this time could lead to learning lessons by getting wounded.  Ouch.

What is truly amazing is the number of kites in play at this time: three.  But, first, let us see the also remarkable grand trines from which those kites are built:

Moon / Pallas / Jupiter & Juno stand out as a grand fire trine.  North Node / Ceres / and Mercury & Astraea form a grand air trine.  Saturn / Venus / Vesta form another grand fire trine.  The tendency to act rashly is strong here, and it will have long term consequences.

These grand trines, however, do form the basis for a remarkable number of kites:

So, let’s be clear, the strongest of these is the one with Pallas Opposite Mars (and Sun).  This does favor someone.  However, it does not tend to favor touchy-feely tree huggers (many of us reading this tend to be that way).  It does favor people with combat boots and automatic weapons.  Or outlaw bikers that have a history of carrying automatic weapons.  I think it is a dangerous time.  (See, also: Mars sextile Uranus, recently.)

If my analysis is correct, this could represent some kind of followup to the Algol New Moon.  A few may experience this as a follow up to Christmas of 2014.  Both things could be true.  And, Mercury continues square to Neptune.  All of these indicate that (for most of us) this is a good time to stay home and work on something safe.  Lock your doors.

But, to be sure, someone will accrue great advantage at this time.

One last thing: a T-Square (beside the Uranus / Pluto / Node thing) is in play:

If you are in rush hour traffic some time near this time, keep your cool.  We recommend you wait until at least after the New Moon to make any major leaps forward.  (Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) might wait until the Summer Solstice arrives.

New Moon May 17, 2015 in Taurus: Quintile Kites and More

We present the New Moon chart for May 17, 2015.  On the eastern coast of the United States as well as in the UK, Europe and certain other parts of the world this NM occurs on May 18, 2015.

We present the chart initially with the aspects to the Sun / Moon emphasized.  We note that this NM is exactly conjunct Algol, as happened with the moon at the Vernal Equinox of 2010.  That heralded a series of disasters, including the WVA Coal Mine Explosion and culminated in the disaster of the Deepwater Horizon.

As we have mentioned previously, when discussing the recent Philly train wreck, a Quintile Kite is in play for some time during May 2015.  That means we are in an extraordinarily rare period that facilitates innovations and creativity.  Since Mars and Saturn are critically involved (their opposition perfected May 15th), these innovations do not come easily (i.e. possibly through disasters such as train wrecks).  The position of Saturn near a certain fixed star emphasizes this.  Still, this is a GREAT window for “creatives” (painters, poets, etc.)  It also means we might make real progress in terms of safety practices.

Horary charts are intended to “answer” a “question.”  Playing New Moon Jeopardy for a moment (here is the answer, an horary chart), we ask, what is the question?

We note Part of Catastrophe, Part of Fatality, Part of Treachery, and Part of Imprisonment in play.  Sun and Moon form a New Moon conjunct Algol.  Mercury and Pallas aspect Hamal.  What question do you think this NM is answering?  (Comments invited.  Hint: the NM conjunct Algol is critically important!)

Other patterns are in play.  Noteworthy is the persistent Thor’s Hammer currently potentiating accidents and potential for violence:

This Thor’s Hammer (aka God’s Fist) is composed of Saturn (in opposition with Mars!) at the apex, Uranus on one leg, and Hygeia on the other leg.  This is a difficult window of time.  We might argue that the presence of Mars opposite Saturn at apex constitute (another) new pattern: a “Thor’s Hammer Kite!”  But, unlike a traditional kite, this is likely a rather unlucky pattern (unless composed of benevolent planets, and this one is not!)

We also find (yet another) Yod, telling us that an important decision is facing us:

Retrograde Mercury is the FASTEST planet involved, so this is with us for a bit also.  And we will likely revisit the decision we made at this time shortly after Mercury goes direct.

More to come on this over the next few days.
