Preliminary Possible Charts for Al Aliwi Alissa, Boulder CO Shooter at Supermarket

Preliminary Charts Based on Publicized Birth Date

We present these preliminary charts based on publicized birth date of April 17, 1999 in Syria (we use Damascus) of Al Aliwi Alissa, the Boulder CO shooter / spree killer who (allegedly) murdered ten people on the afternoon of March 22, 2021.

Most “no birth time” attempts at rectification start with Sun at MC (Midheaven Chart, the “top” of the sky) or Ascendant (the “rising” point).  However, given that we are proposing a chart for a mass murderer, we are starting with variants of the 8th House (Death House, associated with the sign Scorpio and co-rulers of Mars (traditional) and Pluto (modern)).

Sun Enters 8th House Chart

Sun Leaving 8th House Chart
(One of the Best Two Fits)

This chart produces an 8th House Stellium with Sun, Moon, Saturn, and Pallas in the 8th!

Natal Moon (Taurus)
conjunct Transiting Uranus
(8 Taurus 32)

(We believe this is the other “best fit” chart.)

[Click Image to Open in New Tab]

Note that this chart places (1) natal moon conjunct transiting Uranus (near MC in the chart at the time of the shooting); (2) Pluto near MC in natal chart; and (3) Mars (traditional ruler of Scorpio) in Scorpio and in 8th house.

Furthermore, (1) Neptune and Uranus are in the 12th, (2) the 2nd House Stellium of Jupiter, Sun, Pallas, Saturn and Moon are ruled by Mars (in the 8th), and (3) the Ascendant here is both “too early to tell” and almost exactly 180 degrees rotated from the “announcement chart” of 4:33 PM MDT in Boudler, CO on March 22, 2021.

This chart may be the best candidate.

Twelfth House Stellium Chart

This is our “3rd Place” pick.  This chart is heavily influenced by the 12th house of “self undoing” and delusions.

Thor’s Hammer (God’s Fist)

Sandy Hook School Shooter Adam Lanza also had a Thor’s Hammer in his natal chart.

Vernal Equinox 2021 : A Worrisome Thor’s Hammer

Summary : a Thor’s Hammer at this time involving Mars (peregrine), Pluto, and Vesta is a cause for concern regarding an event involving collectives such as military, police, or allied health.  This pattern at this time may signal a mass casualty on or near this date.

Subsequent Events:

Thor’s Hammer : Horary Chart

Here is the horary version of the Vernal Equinox 2021 chart.  I offer this first because it points out that Mars (part of the pattern) is also (1) peregrine (an unfavorable position, a “thief” of sorts) and (2) opposite the “Part of Fatality.”

[Click Image to Open in New Tab]

The Thor’s Hammer is associated with explosions, mining disasters, airplane crashes, and train wrecks.  Maybe the most notably example in recent decades is found in the birth chart of Adam Lanza (see, also this entry), the Sandy Hook School Shooter.

This particular tragedy could involve a shooter.

Here is the Beginners Version of the same chart:

[Click Image to Open in New Tab]

The possibility of a disaster worries us.  We provide a United States map, below, that may identify likely geographies.  (One line runs through my home state of Texas.  Wasn’t the ice storm, “Winter Storm Uri,” enough?)

Events of concern may not occur “day of” the equinox.  Mars perfects the square to Vesta 7 AM Sunday Morning (March 21st), and Mars perfects the sesquiquadrate to Pluto on March 23rdThe window from March 19th through March 24th should be considered “risky.”

How to proceed?  (1) Stay away from dangerous people, places, and things. (2) Know that this is a an EXCELLENT time for FOCUSED EFFORT *IF* you can avoid anger despite the inevitable nuisances that will challenge.  Today, and the period from March 19th to March 24th, SAFETY is the most important consideration.  Everything else flows from that.

Thieves will likely be operative in this window, so keep possessions safe, also.

Hele

A Hele is also present, a sign of internal agreements in groups (such as political parties) but disputes, sometimes acrimonious disputes, between groups (such as political parties).  Political events may yet heat up again.

[Click Image to Open in New Tab]

Yod

March of 2021 is a month of important decisions.  This chart has a yod, also, emphasizing that many of us will face an important decision at this time.

[Click Image to Open in New Tab]

Note that the apex of the Yod includes Vesta, also part of the aforementioned Thor’s Hammer.  The disaster, or maybe just a “difficult time,” will lead collectives into making an important decision, a fork in the road.

You will feel this, no matter who you are, and you will face your own decisions.

More Decisions : A Double Yod Key Follows

Later, the next day, the decisions made cascade into other decisions as the Yod becomes a “Double Yod Key,” a sign of at least two more decisions, maybe a chain of many decisions. 

Once each path is picked, no turning back is possible.

Full Moon : February 27, 2021 (Virgo Moon / Pisces Sun)

Full Moon : February 27, 2021

This lunation is also active.  Similar to the recent New Moon, the chart for this FM shows it has a Thor’s Hammer (potential for violence, explosions, or other disasters).  The chart also has a Yod, a clear indicator that many of us will face an important decision this weekend, continuing into early March (and possibly beyond).

The 7th Harmonic and 5th Harmonic activity is so pronounced that at least a few of you will produce works of genius this weekend.  That crazy idea from a few weeks ago?  Go back and look at it now.  You might see something special!

This Full Moon occurs on a weekend, and with the Thor’s Hammer (Fist of God) some of you will be accident prone or may get into fights.  Please be careful at this time.  If someone attempts to provoke you, walk away!

Full Moon with Thor’s Hammer

Full Moon : Beginner’s Chart with Thor’s Hammer Illustrated

[Click to Open in New Tab]

Note that the Juno-Neptune square is applying (and one of the strongest aspects in the chart other than the Full Moon itself).  Each of these, Juno and Vesta, are on a leg of the Thor’s Hammer (God’s Fist) with Hygeia at the apex.  This tells us that healthcare is a central issue, and the choice seems to be between women in general but, particularly, issues of fidelity (and betrayal) on one side and a Neptune kind of character, when benevolent: poetry, music, and arts, and when malevolent: drugs, alcohol, and cults (particularly religious but other kinds as well).

In a day to day situation, some will see this drama: a healthcare provide (physician, nurse, allied health) will face a serious conflict between a person who is a “patient” (alcoholic, drug addict, maybe just an ordinary person who suffers an illness) and the females about the patient (almost certainly family members).

Large scale: the healthcare system will face serious conflicts that involve issues of trust and betrayal (on one side) and disease (particularly the pandemic) on the other.

Full Moon with Yod

A choice is emphasized here by the presence of a Yod in the chart:

[Click Image to Open in New Tab]

The Moon is at apex.  Since this is a Full Moon, with the Sun opposite the Moon, this is a “Focused Yod.”

One leg goes to Chiron in Aries (healthcare and teaching, but a bit of an angry or militant variety, a “warrior monk” so to speak) and the other goes to Saturn (in Aquarius, an acceptable place for Saturn but all about accomplishing results by means of restrictions).

Large Scale : Again, expect conflicts involving healthcare and a decision of whether to follow recommendations of providers (which might prove expensive) or recommendations of restrictions and “belt tightening.”

Personal : This is all about work and play and the decisions you make from now through at least March 13th (Mercury moves out of shadow AND just past New Moon in Pisces).  Due to the Mercury Shadow, this could be about “cleanup operations” for messes in the past few months.  One path is about education and healing (maybe going back to school), and the other is about restrictions and hard work.  We cannot advise which path to take: both have strengths and weaknesses.  For some of you, you will remember this time and wonder, later, “what if I had made the other choice”?

Just remember, “Hindsight is 20/20.”

Full Moon : 7th Harmonic Chart

[Click Image to Open in New Tab]

The 7th Harmonic activity in this chart is noteworthy.  This Full Moon is about “lessons learned.”  Breakthrough ideas can come, but a price in terms of karma will almost certainly be extracted.  The lessons here are complex: pay attention and write down those ideas lest they slip away from you.  For some creatives, this could be a turning point.

Full Moon : 5th Harmonic

[Click Image to Open in New Tab]

The 5th Harmonic is ALSO highly activated in this chart, confirming that some of you will produce genius level work at this time.  Politics could very much become about a “power grab” under these circumstances.  Keep your eyes and ears open.  Compose music, take photographs, make video, write poetry or do something similar with this amazing set of alignments.

Full Moon with Grand Cross

Here is the Grand Cross chart we have been discussing for weeks.  It is “in play” here also.  The most notably consideration is the Sun near Neptune (applying to a conjunction in a few days) and Moon near Vesta applying to a conjunction in a few hours.  Both of these conjunctions will bring “messages” about our circumstances.

Mercury Direct Station February 20, 2021

Mercury Direct Station February 20, 2021

Most interesting about this chart are (1) Moon conjunct North Node and (2) Moon biseptile Sun, both at the time of the Mercury Direction Station.

After the weather disaster in Texas, and also other parts of the nation, this chart tells us “it ain’t over yet.”  Care on this date, and the next few days is imperative.  Caution will pay dividends.  Impulsive behavior courts disaster.

“Poets, priests, and politicians,” who “have words to thank for their positions” will find that finding words is tough on any Mercury Station, but this one might have the curious contradiction of certain deep insights (Moon/Node biseptile Sun).  Breakthroughs can be had.  Write down the ideas, you may not have all of the pieces yet.  Persist; they will come later.

[Click on Image to Open in New Tab]

A Thor’s Hammer is also present.  Again, anger and impulsive behavior can be particularly dangerous at this time! (Avoid dangerous “people, places, and things.”  And, if one of those includes you, go somewhere and take a nap or take a time to meditate and practice deep breathing.  Whatever “it” is, “it” is not worth it!)

[Click Image to Open in New Tab]

A few exceptional individuals will harness today’s energy to produce BRILLIANT works of music or poetry or visual arts or photography or videography.  If you are a creative, this COULD be your moment (IF you can avoid anger and impulsivity)!

2021 Aquarian New Moon : Double Thor’s Hammer Key + Multiple Rosetta

February 10, 2021 at 6:00 am | Posted in Astrology | 6 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Lunations vary. Much as “opinions vary” (immortal words uttered by the Philosopher “Dalton” in “Road House” (played by Patrick Swayze)), lunations vary. Some are, frankly, boring. Some are more interesting.

This one is more interesting.

First of all, for many events, this New Moon (NM, hereafter) is the “trigger” associated with upcoming Saturn Square Uranus. One of my teachers said it many times: often the day of a huge, arguably “cataclysmic” outer planet event is a dull day with little to nothing compelling happening (except for births or deaths that happen on that date). But, according to my old mentor, MANY times the immediately preceding (or following) lunation (NM or FM) is a “trigger,” setting in motion critical events.

I believe that is true here. The NM of Thorsday triggers much. Some of it scares me.

Six Major Considerations for this New Moon

Here is my list of “issues” with this NM:

  1. Thor’s Hammer Key : I have never seen a book describe this (at all!) and Solar Fire (as of version 9) does NOT have a built-in search for this (I would like to see it added). Similar to a “double yod key,” the Thor’s Hammer Key (or, if you prefer, “God’s Fist Key”) is a combination of two Thor’s Hammer patterns interlaced on one side. We have that in this chart, and (similar to Adam Lanza who had a Thor’s Hammer in his birth chart) the Thor’s Hammer can make “things” go “boom.” I will not say it happens every time, but the POTENTIAL is there! (Be careful! Avoid dangerous “things” (people, places, and things. Offer a kind word rather than an angry insult. Apologize. Watch “Unhinged” again! Here is a question : Is the character played by Russell Crowe really the villain? Are you sure? How do YOU act in those situations? Would you apologize? Do you hunt someone down if they don’t apologize to you? Or, are you a doormat? Do you feel your blood boil sometimes? Did you “just want an apology” when you were having “a really bad day”? Have you felt that lately?)
  2. Rosettas, multiple and interlaced. One side opposes the other. Oddly, both sides seem cooperative. But both sides have HUGE internal battles waged “behind closed doors.” Expect the impeachment trial of Donald Trump to prove to be “interesting.” (Let’s face it, regardless of what the outcome may be, dissatisfaction will be vented extensively, maybe by BOTH sides.)
  3. 7th Harmonic activity : Karmic (always) and (sometimes) scientific or technical breakthroughs. What appears to be a four planet pattern with a trapezoidal pattern is in play. Whether or not that is true depends on how tight you set your orbs, but (if you are willing to loosen your constraints) the pattern looks interesting.
  4. 5th Harmonic : The 5th Harmonic looks deadly boring UNTIL you realize that Jupiter forms a bi-quintile with Vesta, and Vesta was involved in the aforementioned 7th harmonic activity. Specifically, Sun/Moon (this IS a NM!) form a 7th harmonic aspect with Vesta. So, what DO the Sun/Moon (father and mother) want to talk to Jupiter (the philandering prodigal son born to be king) through Vesta (collectives and their traditions and rituals)? I am not sure, but it looks interesting. AND, the distance from Jupiter to Sun/Moon is 10d40m (ten degrees and forty minutes), almost exactly 1/33 of the “wheel in the sky” (that keeps turning).
  5. Grand Cross : We have mentioned this in every recent chart. Neptune and Vesta (whoops, there it is! Again!) oppose each other and the Nodes square both. This is a curious aspect, and it is in play long enough to color this window of time from before the inauguration until ? until ? until ? (Maybe March? April? later?) Seeing collectives (including religious ones) in opposition to dreams, music, poetry, religion, drugs, and alcohol, and FATE (the Nodes) insisting on that conflict, makes for “interesting times” to experience. The Neptune-Vesta-Nodes GC might also be symbolic of the Pandemic as it continues into 2021.
  6. T-Squares: Ordinarily, we can ignore these when looking at a Grand Cross. BUT, these are NOT ordinary times! Complete separate from the previously mentioned T-Square, we have Hygeia opposing Saturn. Interesting by itself, the fact that Saturn is making its first square to Uranus (since April, 2001) creates the T-Square. When Moon reaches 7 Scorpio (in less than three weeks), a different Grand Cross will form. The Neptune-Vesta-nodes GC is a source of discontent and dissent, but the Hygeia-Saturn-Uranus-Moon GC has the potential to cause radical shifts, deep change that may involve (more) violence.

Any given chart can be “farmed” at length for more meaning. We do that all the time with natal charts. But these six key patterns are enough to be “interesting” as the NM “pulls the trigger” on the Saturn-Uranus square on February 17th.

Thor’s Hammer Key (Interlaced) :
A Potential for Violence or the Energy to Get Things Done (You Choose)

Here is the chart for the THK :

Uranus-Neptune-Hygeia-Astraea form this pattern. Uranus and Neptune are heavy hitters; they tend to shape the world for generations to come. Hygeia is “health and healthcare”; Astraea is “law and legal.”

You can piece together the rest. Stated simply, battles are brewing over healthcare and the laws that govern healthcare. But, if you watch the news, then you already knew that!

Rosettas : Opposing Sides Seem to Agree, But Internal Battles are Fierce

Here is the chart:

The massive activation of Mars (FOUR squares!) tells us this is a BIG FIGHT. Better be prepared!

7th Harmonic : Problems with Supply Chains Continue But Innovative Solutions Are Possible

Mars-Ceres-Saturn-Juno form the four planet pattern here. Mars and Saturn are, respectively, the “Lesser Malefic” and the “Greater Malefic,” but how do Ceres (food, supply chains, the grocery store having what you want, enough vaccine to “go around,” and similar) and Juno (traditional female family roles : mother-daughter-sister-aunt-niece but ESPECIALLY the wife angry at the philandering husband) fit in?

Without the modifers: how do Ceres and Juno fit in with Mars and Saturn? Whatever the case, frankly, it SOUNDS bad (geez, Mars & Saturn are in play here; Grant Lewi made much of Mars Square Saturn in Hitler’s natal chart). I don’t know about you, but it sounds scary to me!

Whatever the case, it will be “karmic” (a long overdue balancing of some kind) and (strangely) scientific and technical breakthroughs may result from it. Hold onto your hat!

We also note that Vesta (of the Grand Cross mentioned earlier) forms a TriSeptile with Sun/Moon at time of perfection of the NM. What does THAT mean? We are not certain, but it ties into the GC mentioned earlier and it will have something to say about our traditions and our collectives!

5th Harmonic

At first blush, this chart looks boring. But, then we see that a BiQuintile connects Vesta (!) with Jupiter (AND Venus!). What involvement of the King (and sometimes philandering husband) and his sweetheart, the ever lovely Venus, to these collectives and their ever important traditions? To be certain, Vesta is an important player here.

Grand Cross : Collectives Meet Their Destiny, A Tipping Point for Millions

At this point, the GC seems anti-climatic. But, in addition to the Saturn-Uranus square, it is the star for the moment. As seems ever true with Neptune, the pattern risks fading into the background with the other drama in play. But, the key issues of the day can be found here! Poetry and music can heal. Alcohol and drugs (and other addictions) can destroy. Which path do you choose?

Vesta makes this GC about collectives : (military, police, religious orders, healthcare workers). Neptune brings huge changes, some of which are deluded mis-steps and others will make their way into poetry and song.

T-Squares : A Signal of Radical Change Coming

That brings us to the final pattern we will review : T-Squares. We ordinarily ignore those when a Grand Cross is in play (a “T” is just a GC with a piece missing), but another T is in play that will have importance in a few weeks when the Moon at 7 Scorpio will make it into a grand cross. (March 3rd)

This is a “fixed” T, and you can expect that some progress will come to a halt because people will choose to NOT give up their positions.

The Fixed Grand Cross is also known as “The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse,” particularly if at fifteen degrees. This one is at seven, but shakeups are still likely.

However, sometimes a GC can be highly productive. A bit of insight or “higher order thinking” can be helpful.

Sun Sextile Saturn (1) (2020-03-19)

Grand Conjunction versus the Anaretic Sextile Prior to Vernal Equinox

Many other astrologers are focused on the “Grand Conjunction” that happens at the end of this year.  Those happen every twenty years, and I have no doubt that they are important.  However, I think I have found something even more rare and even more important.  The aspect has been perfecting as I have researched and am writing this article.  I call it (full name) “Anaretic Sextile Prior to Vernal Equinox.”  For sake of brevity, we will just call it the “Anaretic Sextile” even though other similar aspects exist.  (Otherwise, “Grand Conjunction” will win this face-off just because it is easier to pronounce.)

What Makes It Special?

What makes it special? First of all, it is far more rare.  The last one appears to have happened in 1961.  The next one happens in 2167.  And a search from 1000 AD to 2500 AD yields only nine (9) similar occurences.  NINE occurrences across 1,500 years.  Across 1,500 years, the Anaretic Sextile appears to have happened nine times, a maximum of nine times (and maybe not that much).

Some of you say: so what?  Many things are rare.  But that does not make them important.  But, as I wrote in my previous article (March 18th through 19th of 2020: Sun in Pisces, Anaretic and Saturn in Capricorn, Anaretic), this aspect is important for several reasons (which I repeat here):

  1. The five point stellium is obvious and does not differ significantly for the charts of entry of Sun into the anaretic degree (the entire focus of this entry) for charts for New York, Los Angeles, or Plano (my location). And, none of the regular patterns we look at (T-Square, Grand Trine, Grand Cross, etc.) are present in these charts.
  2. The most important thing is that BOTH the Sun AND Saturn are in anaretic degrees during this period.  (That is unusual.)  Specifically, the Sun is in the anaretic degree of Pisces (possibly the most powerful of all anaretic degrees since it is truly about endings) and Saturn is in the anaretic degree of Capricorn (its home!).  Saturn MUST make a statement of some kind before it leaves home.  And the Sun is in the same position as we close out one astrological year and start another.
  3. A triangular fifth harmonic pattern exists.  I identify this will little commentary, preferring that others reblog my work and add their own commentary.
  4. A triangular seventh harmonic pattern exists.  Again, I offer little commentary for the same reason as previous.
  5. I offer a number of maps.  While all are interesting to some greater or lesser degree, only three are truly compelling(1) Western Canada (which places both Saturn and Pluto on the Fourth House Cusp, sometimes called either the “final resting place” or, more explicitly, “the grave”); (2) China (and that would seem obvious, but seeing the astrological maps confirming it is noteworthy) and (3) the UK (again, obvious based on what is happening there but, again, seeing the astrological maps confirming it is noteworthy).
  6. The other maps DO have stories to tell, just not quite as much as Canada / China / UK.
  7. I think this set of charts might tell us more about what happening than the Vernal Equinox charts..  (But, the Vernal Equinox charts, via the Thor’s Hammer pattern, hint that some serious “unrest” could be facing us.)

Please do keep in mind that much of this is “higher order” and easy to miss.  But, from an astrological point of view, the change the Coronavirus is bringing (Saturn is a tough taskmaster!) fits with this aspect, the Anaretic Sextile.

What Does it Mean for Me?

I have not (yet) explored the other eight occurrences to determine any other similarities of their configurations.  Since the perfection of the aspect is now past (by twenty eight (28) minutes of clock time as I write this, with the Coronavirus Pandemic exploding and thunderstorms rolling in, part of the same group of storms that produced hail and tornadoes here in Texas last night), it cannot be used in any “electional” sense.  However, it can be used as a diagnostic, if individuals are willing to look back at their activities on this Thursday evening from 6:49 PM CDT until 10:49 PM CDT, but particularly within a few minutes of 6:49 CDT.

If you must know, this tiny sliver of time, properly scrutinized, can give you a glimpse into either (1) your “true calling” or (2) “you destiny” or (3) both.  Remember the scene from “Last Crusade” where the old Templar said, “Choose wisely”?

Does this happen much?  (The Anaretic Sextile, not the Templar scene)

Not much.  As mentioned earlier, I ran a search on Sun Sextile Saturn, Sun in Pisces and Saturn in Capricorn.  Many of the “matches” are not really matches.  True matches would be sometime between March 18th and March 22.  I have not made the effort to winnow the list down further.

As Columbo Would Say

As Columbo would say, “just one more thing.”  A similar followup aspect will happen again on November 19th of this year.  To be certain, it will be different.  But, no question about it, it is a followup version.   Maybe the time to start planning for it is NOW.

Seven Point Stellium

However, I do have more than one thing to add.  First, if you count Pallas in Capricorn and Ceres in Capricorn, this is a Seven Point Stellium!  To say the least, those tend to be rare, also.  (We filter for the stellium in the above chart.)

But Wait!  There’s More

Familiar with the late night television infomercial line, “but wait, there’s more”?  It applies here.  Remember the Thor’s Hammer we mentioned in “Vernal Equinox of 2020“?  Well, guess what?  Vesta on one leg, remember that?  Well, Vesta is anaretic in this chart, also. (We filter for the Thor’s Hammer in the chart below.)

Let us be clear: the asteroids are trying to tell us something.  Sometimes they simply duplicate what the planets are saying.  But, in this case, they add important nuances to the message.

Vernal Equinox of 2020

Vernal Equinox of 2020

[Click to Enlarge]

The Vernal Equinox of 2020 is here. The chart above shows the moment of the Equinox, filtered to show the Thor’s Hammer pattern that is present.

We have written about the Thor’s Hammer pattern before:

In all fairness, I have seen many Thor’s Hammer days that did not produce explosions, mine collapses, or school shooters.  Regardless, they do seem to be difficult days.  The marker does show up frequently with violence and explosions.  Caution should be considered.

Interested in an “in depth” astrological analysis of the Sandy Hook school shootings?  >click here<  Since school is out in most localities, we do not expect any school shootings.  But, that same energy can manifest in other places.

Using astrology to predict some kind of “global disaster” at this point seems superfluous. However, we note that the global death count has not exceeded that of 9/11 (as of this writing) nor reached typical annual influenza deaths (yet) nor come remotely close to that of automobile accidents (at least in the United States). We have yet to see what level of damage will result, but it could be that the worst part is a mix of panic and the economic harm that results.
We present the same chart, changing only to the “beginner’s format” to facilitate analysis and understanding for those new to astrology:

[Click to Enlarge]

“But, what does it mean?”
Juno is at the apex of the Thor’s Hammer, and at my location she is in the 12th house of “self-undoing,” institutions, drugs, alcohol, deceit, dreams, and illness. Hospitals are inherently 12th house organizations, arguably the classic 12th house organizations along with churches and monasteries and similar organization. Except for accidents and other trauma, many of us are born in such places and die in such places. The Coronavirus, Covid-19, is an agent of such energy.

Juno rules females in general but particularly in traditional female roles as wife, mother, daughter, sister, and aunt. It is also the indicator of betrayal, more specifically the betrayed wife who has been betrayed by the philandering husband (Jupiter). Jupiter is courts, universities and university professors, higher education, and foreign travel.

Juno in this position hints that “we,” the People, are in a position to be concerned about betrayal by courts, universities (and related “experts”), and foreign travel. While some might suspect the federal government and our current president (and that COULD be true), I am suspicious of state and (especially) local government for potential for deceit and abuse under these circumstances. A need for oversight along with checks and balances is imperative.

Who else is in this Thor’s Hammer? Mercury on one leg, which is about communications and transportation. Mercury also CAN be about deceit although that is not a certainty. The presence of Mercury here, among other things, emphasizes the importance of logistics (and the potential for abuse and theft).

On the other leg is Vesta, the asteroid associated with Vestal Virgins in particular. Since most of us do not have those any more, Vesta is about people who carry traditions: priests and associated, sometimes military and police in non-combat roles. Careful scrutiny of these parties will be necessary to confirm that theft and other misdeeds does not occur.

Thor’s Hammer: Explosions and School Shootings

That we have a “Thor’s Hammer” tells us that an “explosion” of some kind may result. We have written about the Thor’s Hammer many times before, associating it particularly with school shootings but also mining disasters and the Deepwater Horizon catastrophe, an explosion.

Fourth Harmonic Analysis: Astraea Oppositions and New Law

Following are versions of this chart with information for (1) Horary and Traditional practitioners and (2) Midpoint Trees.  These charts are filtered to focus on fourth harmonic aspects (squares and oppositions).  Note the oppositions of Astraea to Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn.  Jude Cowell describes Astraea as “the goddess of Justice.”  We agree, and this group of oppositions almost certainly heralds unprecedented lawsuits (and similar conflicts).

From the standpoint of attorneys and judges, expect “new law” to be made based on the events of this year.  Similarly, legislatures will craft new statutes (Senate and Congress in the U.S., but, also, ALL legislatures on the planet).

Jupiter Quincunx Neptune 2016-10-23 (Focused Yod + Thor’s Hammer)

Jupiter Quincunx Neptune 2016-10-23 (Focused Yod + Thor’s Hammer)

As we have written elsewhere, this is part of a larger pattern that we  detailed in August of 2014 and, arguably, extends back to 2012, including the notorious Winter Solstice of 2012.  We thought that the Focused Yod in the Winter Solstice of 2012 was the most important characteristic, along with a Diamond pattern that manifested later that evening.

Perfection of this occurrence of Jupiter quincunx Neptune also contains a Yod, and if you are willing to use the Nodes (lunar nodes, “Ketu” and “Rahu”) then a Focused Yod is also present here.  We also have an additional analysis of this aspect located here in our Week 44 Forecast for 2016.

First, perfection of the aspect filtered for the Yod:

2016-10-23-jupiter-quincunx-neptune-yod

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that Neptune (Pisces) is at the apex with Jupiter (Libra) on one leg and the Moon (Leo) on the other.  By itself, this Yod tells us that we face a decision, and it is a major decision.  When we add the Nodes, we have a Focused Yod:

2016-10-23-jupiter-quincunx-neptune-focused-yod

[Click Image to Enlarge]

So, in addition to facing a “big decision,” we know we are dealing with our individual and collective fates / karma (the Nodes).  Chances are good that we are dealing with issues of service to others, jails, institutions, or acts of “self-undoing.”  Health issues or spiritual matters may be at the forefront also.

A pair of overlapping Thor’s Hammers (God’s Fists) are also present:

2016-10-23-jupiter-quincunx-neptune-thors-hammers

[Click Image to Enlarge]

These tell us that danger, real danger, exists as tempers flare and the potential for people, places, and things to go “boom.”  Note that this is following only a few days after perfection of Mars conjunct Pluto, perfecting recently on October 19th.  If you can focus this energy and the related emotions, then you can accomplish much.

We have a modest amount of 5th Harmonic activity, but do not see a coherent pattern in these aspects:

2016-10-23-jupiter-quincunx-neptune-5th-harmonic

[Click Image to Enlarge]

So, some potential for bright ideas and inventions exists.  But what is more interesting is a triangular pattern of 7th order harmonic aspects:

Moon (Leo), Pluto (Capricorn), and Ceres (Aries) form this triangular pattern.  Mars is two degrees away from Pluto, and Uranus is five degrees away from Ceres.  Pluto and Ceres have a well known history, the story being that Pluto had Ceres (prosperity, food) below ground for about half of the year (a period of fasting and famine) and Ceres was above ground for half the year (a period of food and feasting).  Halloween / Samhain marked the start of Fall, reputedly, in Celtic cultures so this set of issues seems somehow appropriate in a metaphoric sense.

We think issues of prosperity / feast / famine will face some (or many) of us at this time.  It may be telling us something important about this United States Presidential election and what will be coming afterwards.  What may be unclear at this time will be perfectly clear by the period from next April to August (with perfection of this aspect again in May and July).

The last time we had a similar series of aspects was 2004.  The next time will be 2027.  While they are not a “once a century” kind of rare aspect, they are not particularly frequent either.

Mars Conjunct Pluto 2016-10-19

You have been feeling this building.  Solar Fire shows this aspect, perfecting October 19th, to be in effect during this window:

Enters Oct 6 2016 1:48:26 am (CDT +5:00)

We start with the 7th harmonic filtering of the chart rather than finishing with it.  This is the pattern that can give us some hope during what may be a difficult time for many people.

We see a triangular 7th harmonic (septiles!) pattern involving Mars/Pluto, Juno (trust), and Ceres (prosperity).  In an ordinary and “low” form, this is females (primarily) deciding to go on extreme diets prior to the holidays.  It is not healthy, and we hope that not so many people will do this.  Don’t take that path.

In a higher form, this is about trust and prosperity and picking your friends carefully.  The Hele pattern that is also present confirms that the choices of friends and allies made at this time is particularly important.

Here is the chart, filtered for 7th harmonic (septile) aspects:

Here is the Hele, a signal to pick your allies carefully at this time:

The remainder of the patterns are hard, except for a single Grand Trine pattern.  We start with a Grand Cross formed from Moon opposite Saturn (also very “tough”!) both square to the Nodes (Karma):

Note that some astrologers will not consider this a “Grand Cross” because the nodes are “points” rather than “planets.”  Vedic astrologers, though, do treat the Nodes as planets.  (For purposes of patterns, I agree.)

A Hard Rectangle is also present:

We also have TWO Thor’s Hammer patterns present2016-10-19-mars-conjunct-pluto-thors-hammer[Click Image to Enlarge]

Thor’s Hammers (God’s Fist) are associated with people, places, and things going BOOM!  So are Hard Rectangles.  Grand Crosses (the equivalent of four T-Squares overlapping) can be also.  It is all very difficult, and it is associated with Mars (violence, war) conjunct Pluto (the higher octave of Mars and police, intelligence agencies, drugs, poisons, and death by assassination).

We do have one more bright spot: a Grand Trine (Grand Air Trine: Sun in Libra, Pallas in Aquarius, and Moon in Gemini) and this is very good for generating ideas and communications.  Avoid resorting to violence; talk it out if at all possible!

Harvest Moon 2016 (2016-10-15) A Butterfly and a Hard Rectangle

Harvest Moon 2016 (2016-10-15) A Butterfly and a Hard Rectangle

More than a few of you have correctly deduced that this is one of the more special Full Moon(s).  We begin by showing a chart of the FM that contains a pattern we have not seen before.  We call it a “Hard Butterfly” in the absence of any other name to the contrary.  It is composed of two interlaced T-Squares that also contain a Hard Rectangle within them.  Here is the fourth order harmonic chart that most clearly elucidates this pattern.

Here is the Full Moon chart filtered to more clearly show the Hard Rectangle:

As we have discussed before, these kinds of patterns (T-Squares and especially Hard Rectangles) provide so much energy that they are “dangerous.”  You can accomplish much, but you run the risk of “overdoing it.”  Martians (Intelligence Agencies, Police, and Athletes) will tend to do well and in some cases have tremendous accomplishments but, again, run the risk of “overdoing it.”  If you are not a Martian, then make certain you avoid dangerous people, places, and things and avoid being such a person yourself.

A Thor’s Hammer (God’s Fist) pattern is also present with Saturn (the Greater Malefic, and a source of tests, trials, and tribulations) is at the Apex.  This is yet another amplifier of the situation we have already described, and it is associated with people, places, and things going “boom.”  Here is the same chart but filtered for the TH:

We will likely have more to say and more to add over the course of the day as the FM moves towards perfection.  Till then, we encourage you to focus your efforts into beneficial and useful work, avoid dangerous people, places, and things, and have as much safe fun as you can muster on the even of this “Harvest Moon.”

Mercury Square Mars 2016-10-13 (Thor’s Hammer)

The bad news is that, once again, we face this dangerous aspect.  The good news is that it is the last occurrence this year.  In fact, SolarFire’s Electional Search feature does not find another occurrence until 2018 (refer to list, below).

This one is uncomplicated, and a single pattern is present: a Thor’s Hammer.  Watch your temper today, avoid sharp words and avoid dangerous people, places, and things.  Whatever it is, walk away from it.  If you are a warrior or criminal, then you might be empowered today.  But, if you are one of those and you lose, then you will tend to “lose big.”

We present the chart for perfection of Mercury Square Mars on this date, filtered for the Thor’s Hammer pattern:

2016-10-07 Sun Square Pluto (Thor’s Hammer)

This repeats in two versions, each once a year. The other one was earlier in April, and both will repeat in April and October for the next few years.  We repeat what we said in April: Sun Square Pluto is about power and power struggles. On a personal basis, chances are good you will see conflict, and you may see violence (including the use of lethal force). Police and intelligence agencies tend to be activated at this time, and death and taxes are issues, too.   We add that you might want to look back to what was happening on or about April 6th to understand better what is happening at this time.

Mercury Square Mars 2016-09-12 (Hele + Rosetta + Thor’s Hammer)

As was true with the Mercury Square Mars aspect of July 29th, a Hele and Rosetta are present in this variant of the aspect.  Unlike July, a Thor’s Hammer is present rather than a Yod.  That means that this time issues have “heated up,” possibly issues from late July, and the key is to examine your alliances without losing your temper or being victimized by your associates.  To be certain, this is a dangerous window.  (We say window because arguably this aspect affects at least the day before and day after perfection of the aspect, namely the period from September 11th to September 13th.)

We present perfection of the Mercury Square Mars aspect, filtered for the Thor’s Hammer:

Solar Eclipse of September 1st 2016

Solar Eclipse of September 1st 2016

This particular eclipse is personal for reasons I do not wish to disclose on the open internet.  I thought about NOT writing about it and just leaving the 2016 New Moons page and the writings of others (reblogs) as my proxy.

But, I changed my mind.  And then I found a body of work I had produced on this eclipse a few weeks ago.  No written work, mind you, but chart graphics from the time when I developed my analysis of the rather important Grand Quintile of August 28th.  That confirmed for me that I needed to put up what I had done in a post.

This Grand Quintile period we are in, from August 28th until September 11th, is particularly rare.  If you check the Grand Quintiles from 1800 to 2050 page, you will find most of them last a few hours or a day.  Exceptions exist, such as in 1809 and 1810, but they are just that: exceptions.  So is this current window.

This Solar Eclipse, a special type of New Moon, is a punctuation mark in this window.  It also corresponds to an Eclipse in September of 1997, which was an extremely important period for me personally.  I am left wondering what this one will bring me.

First, let us take a peek at the Kite pattern that  is present.  Kites are not extremely rare, but they are not particularly common either.  This one has the Eclipse, itself, at the focal point and Neptune in opposition (and Neptune is part of the Grand Trine that forms the body of the kite).  (Kites are always, inherently, built from Grand Trines, the pattern that is the namesake of this blog (and my internet alter ego).)  Some of us, likely many of us, are facing one of the most important opportunities of our lives.  We are at one of the most important junctures in our individual and collective lives.  The decisions, and followup actions, that we make (or not) are critically important to the results that manifest (or fail to manifest) consequently.  Negligence is a profound danger here.

Here is the chart of the Eclipse, filtered for that Kite pattern:

Solar Eclipse 2016-09-01 Kite (NM, Mercury Rx)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Juno and Vesta (both major asteroids) form the other points of the Grand Trine.  Juno brings issues of trust and intimacy to the forefront, particularly as they involve wives, sisters, mothers, and other female family members.  Vesta is about traditions and whether or not we follow and honor them or create new ones when old ones no longer serve us.

Here is the same chart, filtered for the Grand Trine instead of the Kite:

Solar Eclipse 2016-09-01 Grand Trines (NM, Mercury Rx)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that the opposition of the Eclipse to Neptune has not yet quite perfected, but will perfect soon with the annual opposition of Sun to Neptune on Friday.  Friday’s opposition has a Thor’s Hammer (energy, often in the form of violence or explosions) and a Yod (insisting that an important decision must be made).  You will have to make a decision in this period, and something or someone from the past (Mercury Retrograde) will be part of that decision.

This Eclipse also has a Thor’s Hammer (aka God’s Fist) present with all the “energy” (and DANGER!) that brings.  (Do be careful!)

We also note the presence of a Rosetta; we interpret that pattern as indicative of the important of short-term alliances and relationships.  Treachery is a very real possibility, and people (including major politicians) are likely to shift their positions and allegiances at this time.

T-Squares are present and amplify the energy (and danger) of the Thor’s Hammer:

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This next point is particularly important: please note there are TWO independent sets of T-Squares.  This makes “handling” the sources of “irritation” difficult and more likely impossible.  We would not be surprised at all to hear about someone or something “blowing up” (or a mass shooting) in the next few days.  Since the Eclipse really consumes nearly the entirety of the African continent, we would not be surprised to see the event there.

Here are the Seventh Harmonic or “karmic” aspects:

Solar Eclipse 2016-09-01 7th Harmonic (NM, Mercury Rx)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note the presence of a triangular pattern of septiles composed of a septile, biseptile, and triseptile.  Chiron, Saturn, and Astraea are involved.  We would not be surprised to learn of a major lawsuit (or similar legal system involvement) involving either educational or healthcare systems (or both).  Frankly, we think there will be “hell to pay.”

We will stop there, but we cannot emphasize strongly enough just how important this window of opportunity is.  After September 11th, most of it closes.  All will be gone by Mercury Direct Station and the Autumnal Equinox.  By then, “the concrete will have set.”

Some useful links:

Only a handful of New Moons have a Grand Quintile during the period from 1800 to 2050 (and Solar Fire did not count this NM as one of them though we argue that it is):

Sun Opposite Neptune 2016-09-02 (Kite + Yod + TH)

If you kept your notes from Sun Conjunct Neptune on February 28th, then review them now.  This is another day that is best for poets and photographers.  We have a Yod in play, so you may need to make a decision at a time when your decision making is not at its best.  A Thor’s Hammer is in play, so you need to watch your temper and watch for others that might be dangerous.  But a Kite is also in play, and an opportunity is present.  Keep your eyes open lest it pass you by unnoticed.

Here is the chart for perfection of the aspect, filtered for the kite:

Full Moon August 18th 2016: Danger and Opportunity

Full Moon August 18th 2016: Danger and Opportunity

We see both danger and opportunity in this Leo / Aquarius Full Moon.  With Sun at 25 degrees Leo and Moon at 25 Aquarius, both are square to Algol in Taurus.  That alone would be enough to give pause.  But, a pronounced Thor’s Hammer pattern is present, and that is present with anger and temper and people, places, and things that go Boom!

Here is the FM chart, filtered for the Thor’s Hammer pattern:

A Rosetta pattern is present, telling us that we will need to make allegiances but they will tend to be short-lived and may turn to treachery:

We often ignore T-Squares in our analysis, but a number are present and some of this has figured in a major way in events this summer starting in May / June.  Here is the same FM chart but filtered for T-Squares:

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Please do note that Mars, in Sagittarius, is square the Nodes in Virgo / Pisces (the Nodes are sometimes called “Rahu” and “Ketu” by Vedic astrologers).  This brings an especially “karmic” or fated feel to any violence that occurs at this time.  And, by this FM, at least some of the violence will have manifested leading this to be a time of sorrow and weeping for many.

Opportunity is present and signaled by Grand Trines that connect to the South Node / Neptune:

We note that, while a true Kite is not present, signalling a strong opportunity, we have what has been called an “almost Kite” completed by Pluto.  Since Pluto is at the apex, we expect the “opportunity” to deal with death, police, intelligence agencies, or financial institutions (or some mix of those).

Finally, the presence of a Yod signals that an important decision must be made.  We choose one path or the other and should never look back.  If we look back, we will only see the rosy picture of the other path and not the hidden dangers that peppered that choice.

Full Moon 2016-07-19 Diamond Pattern

Full Moon 2016-07-19 Diamond Pattern

The Full Moon of July 19th of 2016 has a rare diamond pattern in it.

2016-07-19-FullMoon-Diamond

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We will have more to say about this FM as it approaches perfection, but you need to know now that this indicates we are in a window of rare and powerful importance.  Diamond patterns are rare, and we had one on the Winter’s Solstice of 2012 (when many people predicted the end of the world).  We are not at the “end of the world,” but we (collectively) are facing major change, and this diamond pattern confirms that.

This is likely the most pattern rich lunation we have seen since we started the blog in 2008.  (But, you might want to compare this to the Full Moon of May 21st, also an important lunation this year.)  The following patterns are included in this particular lunation:

  • Diamond
  • Rosetta (several)
  • Hard Rectangle (has been associated with violence when not properly channeled)
  • Mystic Rectangle (a sign of rare opportunity and present in Hillary Clinton’s birth chart)
  • Kites (two, interlaced; signs of powerful opportunity)
  • Thor’s Hammer (aka God’s Fist, a pair of them in an incredibly rare configuration resembling a Star of David)
  • Grand Cross (sometimes associated with violence as we saw in late June of this year)
  • A Yod (sign of a decision; a “fork in the road” where we must decide with no turning back)

We will have more to say in the hours that come as this FM perfects, but we are just getting the basics out there for anyone else interested in patterns.  Let’s face it: we live in unusual times, and the days really are bringing new, and sometimes disturbing, events.

The Rosetta is a sign of quick alliances that might turn to treachery or deceit later.  Pick your “friends” carefully at this time.  This chart has SEVERAL of them:

2016-07-19-FullMoon-Rosetta

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We have seen the Hard Rectangle previously associated with violence this year.  (Compare the Hard Rectangle of April 22nd.)  This FM has one of those, also:

2016-07-19-FullMoon-HardRectangle

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The Mystic Rectangle is also particularly rare.  We note that Hillary Clinton’s birth chart has one of these.  They bring special gifts and opportunities to a person, and they bring the same to a window of time and the events in that same window of time.

2016-07-19-FullMoon-MysticRectangle

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that in addition to containing the Full Moon itself (Cancer Sun opposed by Capricorn Moon), that the Mystic Rectangle also contains Astraea (law and lawyers) in Virgo (healthcare and accounting) opposite Chiron (the Wounded Healer and Teacher) in Pisces.  I bet major changes are happening that involve BOTH the legal system and the healthcare system.  (We may not be publicly aware of them, but they are happening.  The story will eventually come out.)

On a personal level, it is best to take care of either set of matters (legal system, healthcare, accounting / record keeping, and educational) at this time.  This is, clearly, a turning point.

We have two interlaced kites present.  This could be considered to be a “kite key” or something similar.  These are not just “kites” (windows of opportunity), they are “super kites” (huge windows of opportunity, if you have the eyes to see it).

2016-07-19-FullMoon-Kites

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that these Kites CONTAIN the Mystic Rectangle WITHIN them!  Open your eyes: something special is waiting for you!  We note that a similar pattern occurred with the Winters Solstice of 2015.

An incredibly rare pair of Thor’s Hammers are also present.  These are INCREDIBLY DANGEROUS, but they also contain the power to “get things done.”  Channel that energy (and anger) into a constructive process that harnesses the opportunity (opportunities, really) that are present.

2016-07-19-FullMoon-ThorsHammer

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We call this unusual pair of Thor’s Hammer patterns a “Thor’s Hammer Star.”  (But, if you like to call them the “God’s Fist” patterns, then we would call this the “Star of God” pattern.  Truly this signals that God / the Universe / your Higher Power is speaking to you now.  Please listen!)  We note that each of the nodes (“Rahu” and “Ketu”) are each at the apex of each Thor’s Hammer pattern.  The nodes are considered “fate” or “karma” by many astrologers.

Also present is a Grand Cross.  The mutable grand cross of late June was discussed much by a number of astrologers.  The consensus was that it was associated with the shakeups and violence of that period.

2016-07-19-FullMoon-GrandCross

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that this is a CARDINAL Grand Cross.  The Mutable Grand Cross was about ENDINGS and cleaning things out.  This one is about launching new things, though we may still want to do some “cleaning out” during the next two weeks of the waning moon.

A Yod is also present:

2016-07-19-FullMoon-Yod

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Yods are places where we MUST make a decision.  Even “deciding not to decide” (abdication) is a decision.  We are at a fork in the road.  We must choose and never look back.  The other path will always “look better,” but it, too, had its difficulties.  The time to decide is at hand.

Finally, we note the presence of a Grand Trine.  It is contained within the heart of the pair of kites we mentioned earlier.  It brings “good times” and can make us lazy when we should be working.  Do not let the opportunity slip by you.

2016-07-19-FullMoon-GrandTrine

We will add more, later, as we approach perfection of this FM.  But, for now, we have covered “the basics.”  And, in this case, those “basics” present to us very much to consider and act upon.

Jupiter Square Saturn 2016-05-26

First, you might want to peek at our analysis of this aspect on March 23, 2016 and August 3, 2015.  The perfection of today’s square is the third in a three party sequence, and we will not see a similar pattern repeat until 2024 / 2025.

Before we address the regular patterns, we should note some remarkable fifth harmonic activity.  Two triangular patterns composed of fifth harmonic activity are present.  One is formed by Juno (in Scorpio; trust v. betrayal, wives, sisters, daughters) at the apex and Sun in Gemini on one leg and Chiron in Pisces on the other.  This Jupiter / Saturn square has this particularly powerful pattern in play.  Jupiter/Saturn aspects are associated with changes in the financial markets, and we note that issues of trust (Juno) have become important (if you do not know this, then you need to watch “The Big Short” and “Money Monster“).

The other triangular pattern has Uranus at the apex, Mars on one leg, and the North Node on the other leg.  As with the first triangular pattern, each leg is a BiQuintile aspect (144 degrees) with Mars / Node separated by a quintile.  We can expect surprises.

All of this fifth harmonic activity signals the potential for  creative breakthroughs and genius level solutions, possibly to problems in the financial markets.

Here is the chart for perfection of Jupiter square Saturn, filtered for fifth harmonic aspects:

2016-05-26 Jupiter Square Saturn (5th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Seventh harmonic aspects are also active (not quite as active as fifth harmonic), and we present the same chart filtered for those:

2016-05-26 Jupiter Square Saturn (7th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Sun, Ceres, and North Node in a triangular seventh harmonic aspect tell us that some “karma” may need to be considered at this time, and that karma especially deals with feast and famine (literally, in terms of food, and metaphorically, in terms of finances).

The more ordinary patterns (if you can at all consider them that) are a Kite (opportunity), Hele (stable long term alliances), Rosetta (unstable long term alliances), and a Thor’s Hammer (aka God’s Fist, and an indicator of possible danger or violence).

The kite, combined with the fifth harmonic patterns previously described, tells us that an amazing opportunity is available at this time:

2016-05-26 Jupiter Square Saturn (Kite)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

One variant of the kite has Jupiter / Neptune, Mercury, and Pluto in the formation (and includes the current and ongoing Grand Earth Trine in it).  Let’s be clear the opportunity for someone to make quite a bit of money exists here.

The other variant tells us that the Nodes are present (instead of Jupiter / Neptune), and hard work will be necessary and the lure of “easy money” will be strong.  We offer this advice: be careful.  Financial markets are typically “zero sum games” (at least in the short term), and for someone to “win” someone else must “lose.”

The Hele represents both the opportunity (and need) for long term alliances, especially to take advantage of the opportunity:

2016-05-26 Jupiter Square Saturn (Hele)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The Rosetta is a bit more thorny: it represents short-term allegiances (and the potential for betrayal from a long term perspective).  Hele and Rosetta TOGETHER always send this message: “pick your friends carefully!”
