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:

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

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:

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:

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!”

Finally, we have the Thor’s Hammer (God’s Fist).  Extreme behavior (including the potential for violence and/or explosions) may be present the week of the perfection of this aspect:

We will not present the “long term analysis” information in this post since that would duplicate the work already done here.

 

Full Moon 2016-05-21 (Grand Cross, Kite, Hele, and Thor’s Hammer)

Full Moon 2016-05-21 (Grand Cross, Kite, Hele, and Thor’s Hammer)

This Full Moon marks an important turning point.  The FM perfects on the 21st, the day before Mercury Direct Station on the 22nd.  And, the FM is in the “too early to tell” parts of Sagittarius and Gemini.  That means that more will be revealed to us, particularly if you are a Sagittarius or Gemini.

Because of the presence of a Grand Cross, with Astraea in Virgo and Pallas in Pisces, that same admonishment applies to Virgo and Pisces as well.  If you are Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo, or Pisces, then you about to receive a major surprise, most likely a beneficial one, but nevertheless a surprise.

Here is the Full Moon (FM), filtered for the Grand Cross:

Full Moon 2016-05-21 (Grand Cross)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We also have a slightly longer term Thor’s Hammer (God’s Fist) present that covers the few days before the FM and the days after as well (meaning the weekend).  As with other Thor’s Hammers, the potential for danger is present, and the energy needs to be channeled into productive outlets to prevent something or someone from going “boom.”

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

Full Moon 2016-05-21 (Thor's Hammer)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Also present is a Hele, a sign of the formation of long-term, or at least longer term, alliances.  What is thorny, here, is that the alliances will tend to be formed in the “too early to tell” period, and that means that you may discover some aspects of your allies, later, that might not be so pleasant.  (Be careful who you pick for your new friends.)

Here is the FM, filtered for the Hele:

An opportunity is present here also. We have a kite, a bit of a loose one, and that shows opportunity for those who can see it.  Here is the same FM, filtered for the kite:

Full Moon 2016-05-21 (Kite)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This opportunity  tends to favor Pisces and Virgo in particular.  For Pisces, this is easy to see and easy to take advantage but does not represent a “growth opportunity.”  (Are you looking for one of those?)  For Virgo, the reverse is true: hard work and personal growth results but it is a major opportunity.

In any case, do keep in mind that Mercury is about to station direct, that this FM is in the “too early to tell” period, and that we are all about to experience a “surprise” of some kind.

And, by the time of the next Full Moon (June 20th, also Sagittarius Moon / Gemini Sun), it will seem that everything that occurred was “fate.”

2016-04 W17: Forecasts for Week 17 of 2016

2016-04 W17: Forecasts for Week 17 of 2016

We are deep in the shadow of the upcoming Mercury Retrograde station on April 28th, and “things” are likely to become interesting for that reason alone.  (Clarissa has written a great piece on the Mercury Retrograde.  And you can find more about these periods for the rest of the year here.)  The Full Moon perfected early April 22nd, and we still feel the effects from this one.

The time is at hand to review old and forgotten projects, and to meticulously check every detail of ongoing projects.  Resurrection of old projects CAN go very well at this time, but new ones seem to falter.  Expect to do maintenance to vehicles (cars, planes, boats) and electronics (television, computer, and telephones).

If you are a student, we continue to recommend that you focus yourself entirely on your projects and preparing for upcoming final exams.

April 2016 (Mars Out)

Week 17 (W17)

Archive of Week 16 (W16)

Sunday April 17th

Mars stations retrograde today, and that trumps everything.  Mercury trine Pluto in early morning hours (overnight) takes SOME of the sting out of the mess, but chances are good that “it” is a mess.

Use today for downtime and reflection if you can.  This is a good day to take a long hard look at what you have been able to accomplish and what you have not.  Maybe the time has come to either delegate or drop stuck or failed projects that sucked the lifeblood out of you.  Write them off and stop sending time, money, and people after what cannot be accomplished.

Monday April 18th

Pluto turns retrograde and worsens the situation.  Again, time to drop failed projects so you can focus on what can be accomplished.  Venus trine Saturn brings the focus to accomplish something useful if you do not waste time or other resources on failed projects.

Tuesday April 19th

Sun enters Taurus today, and that can serve us well or harm us greatly.  From now past at least May 9th we need to review and adjust rather than push forward.

From now until (at least) after Jupiter stations direct on May 9th, you will need to review and adjust plans.  With some plans you may need to wait to move forward until after the Mercury Direct Station on May 22nd or the following New Moon on June 4th.  Still other plans will be on hold until after Mars Direct Station on June 29th or after the following New Moon on July 4th.  Only you, personally, will know which windows applies best to which project.  If you are not certain, you can test possibly forward most after these key dates.

Taurus can give any of us (but particularly the Earth signs) a powerful level of “strength” to accomplish “things,” but that strength can make a terrible mess of “things” also.  (The “poster child” for this in astrology was Adolf Hitler.  Don’t be a “Hitler.”  If you are making a MESS of “things” then STOP.)

Regarding today, besides the Sun entering Taurus, Venus squares Pluto which can be very good (or very bad) for sex and romance.  It typically does NOT bode well for financial markets, but wherever you have losers you have winners and vice versa.  Regarding the markets, the next thirty days “may not be entirely stable.” (As 3CPO said about that asteroid in Star Wars with Han Solo saying “Chewie, take the professor in the back.”)

Wednesday April 20th

This is a day where lunar aspects dominate.  You can “get things done” (in a minor way) if you pay attention to earlier warnings.  Get done what must be done and pay careful attention to details.  This is likely the best day this week, but some tasks or projects will have to be re-done.

Thursday April 21st

Moon is void most of the day (in Libra) and changes sign shortly before a full moon (Moon in Scorpio / Sun in Taurus).  “Getting things done” today is a bit difficult.  Use it for cleaning out and planning.  If your faith observes lunations, this is a particularly good one for ceremonies.

A Full Moon (Scorpio / Taurus) perfects in the early morning hours (CDT / MDT / PDT) and on Thursday in areas east of those time zones.  All of these time zones, most time zones, will feel this FM more on Thursday and Friday.

Friday April 22nd

Most people in PDT (West Coast of USA) and points east will awaken to the waning “just past full” moon.  (Pacific Rim citizens may awaken as it perfects or just before.)  It is Scorpio (Moon) / Taurus (Sun) and we all feel those.  All fixed signs will be stirred to action, and Leo / Aquarius will be particularly irritated (or worse) in some way.  Earth (Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo) and Water (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) signs will tend to benefit.  Fire (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) and Air (Libra, Aquarius, Gemini) may experience this FM as weakening their position in some way.  Fire and Air will gain SOME strength from the Venus / Uranus conjunction (in the form of insights) but everyone should expect surprises.

A bit like Wednesday, you might actually accomplish something today despite difficult astrological circumstances.  Again: Venus joins Uranus (both in Aries), so expect surprises and use the insights gained to accomplish something if that is possible (and to learn the lesson if not possible).

Saturday April 23rd

Use this as a playday.  A pair of lunar quincunxes bring problems to the early morning hours but you can move past them if you choose to do so.  Moon becomes void before 5 PM CDT, so use the evening as downtime especially “quiet time.”  Tonight is a good night to read the Torah (if you do that).  Passover begins.

 

Full Moon 2016-04-22 (Hard Rectangle)

Full Moon 2016-04-22 (Hard Rectangle)

For anyone who wants to check either upcoming or previous full moons or new moons, we offer pages that cover both categories of lunations for 2016. Here is a list of New Moons for 2016, and here is a list of Full Moons for 2016.

We note five patterns associated with this FM: Hard Rectangle, Thor’s Hammer, Hele, Kite(s), and T-Square(s).

We have been omitting T-Squares because they are still quite common when anything aspects the now dissolving Uranus / Pluto square (discussed extensively both elsewhere and on this site).  However, we now have continuing T-Squares involving Jupiter (Virgo), Saturn (Sagittarius), and Neptune (Pisces), and since this set involves other bodies and points (Nodes, Chiron, Hygeia, and Mars) we believe it is worth addressing this set of T-Squares as well.

This is a very “early” Moon-Scorpio/Sun-Taurus FM, and it is the day after Adolf Hitler’s birthday.  Entertainment figures Chyna and Prince died within the last 48 hours, and we would not be surprised to see another one (or more) go at this time.  To say the least, this energy is “tough.”

This period of time reminds us of the period circa January 8, 2016 with the death of David Bowie and Glenn Frey.  Bowie’s death was within 48 to 72 hours prior to the Capricorn New Moon of January 9, 2016.

[We may revise this blog post later to reflect other events that occur concurrent with the FM of 2016-04-22]

While I am not a numerologist (I am not certain how it works), I do note the following (for those time zones where the FM occurs April 22nd): (1) the day is a master number (22); (2) month + day is a higher order master number (44); and, depending on how you reduce numbers, year/month/day is also higher order (2016=7; + 04 -11; 11 + 22 = 33).  So, arguably, in different forms we have 22, 33, and 44.  (I am certain others will note this, and I expect those who claim numerology as their domain to have something to say about it.)

Let’s begin the astrological analysis of patterns with the Hard Rectangle, since it is the rarest of the patterns present (we believe “rare patterns” represent a sort of cosmic “punctuation mark”).

Here is the chart for the 2016-04-22 Full Moon, filtered for the Hard Rectangle:

2016-04-22 Full Moon (Hard Rectangle)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This pattern involves the Sun, Moon and Nodes (Rahu and Ketu to Vedic astrologers).  Many (most? all?) of the traditional astrologers do not like using the Nodes in aspects / patterns.  This is because the Nodes are points rather than actually bodies.  The Nodes are a function of the Earth’s orbital path relative to the Earth and are mathematically determined (as opposed to “heavenly bodies” which, at least in theory, can be observed).

So, whether or not you accept this pattern (or any other that uses the Nodes) depends on whether or not you believe the Nodes affect you.  If you do, then this is an unusually intense Full Moon (FM) because the Nodes (aka “Karma”) form a Hard Rectangle (a very energetic and often dangerous pattern) with the FM.  You can accomplish much at this time, despite the upcoming Mercury Retrograde (and other retrogrades) if you keep your focus by watching your temper.  Avoid dangerous people, places, and things (unless that is your job, and I expect that police, investigators, and intelligence agencies will be very busy at this time along with scientists who explore dangerous topics (venomous snakes, etc.)), and avoid BEING a dangerous person yourself.

Just in case you somehow did not get the previous message, a Thor’s Hammer pattern is also present.  This is a notoriously dangerous aspect, but, again, it can be channeled to get things done.  You know what to do: follow the prescription we just gave (stay focused; avoid temper / violence / explosions).

Here is the (same) chart, filtered for the Thor’s Hammer:

2016-04-22 Full Moon (Thor's Hammer)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

As you can see from this version of the chart, the North Node, Saturn, and the Sun form this pattern.  The early (“too early to tell”) Sun is at the Apex, with Saturn (“tests, trials, and tribulations) on one leg and the North Node (“hard karma”) on the other leg.  With so many retrogrades in play, we recommend that you avoid “banging your head” on projects that will not budge at this time and focus instead on the highest priority projects where you can make actual progress.  (You may also want to review your priorities at this time.)

We also have a Hele present, and it tells us contradictory messages!  One the one hand, with Sun/Moon in the “too early to tell” degrees, it tells us that there are some things (IMPORTANT things) that you do not yet know about the alliances you are about to form.  Are they organized crime?

And, if YOU are organized crime, then are they the undercover police that will finally seal your fate?

Yet, Scorpio-Taurus tells us that if you try to get out of this alliance “somewhere down the road,” then there will be hell to pay.  Be extremely careful with the new friends you choose at this time, and know that they may have far more power than you can possibly realize at this moment.

Here is the chart for the Hele:

2016-04-22 Full Moon (Hele)

Mercury / Vesta (together) is on one leg with the North Node (there it is again!), and Uranus and Saturn are on the other leg.  You will have to choose one or the other.

All of this sounds challenging, and it is.  But a ray of hope is present.  Kites (multiple, overlapping) are present in this chart, and for those that can see them (and harness them), powerful opportunities are present.

Here is the same chart, filtered for the kites:

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Mercury and Pluto form this kite, along with the Nodes (again), so this opportunity will be present for one to three days, possibly longer as slow as Mercury is moving at this time.  Some time after the Mercury Retrograde station, it will open for a second “act” in the play.  But, if you really do want to seize this window of opportunity then you need to do it now.  The other variants will give you a chance to “clean up” things that result from Sun/Moon being in the “too early to tell” period.

Finally, we address the T-Squares.  They are a third pronouncement of the same kind of message that the Hard Rectangle and Thor’s Hammer bring: much energy, the potential for anger and violence, and great potential for accomplishment if the energy is properly funneled.

Here is the chart, filtered for the T-Squares:

2016-04-22 Full Moon (T-Square)

More specifically, what is involved here are mutables (Planets in mutable signs), and long term planets are present in each sign that forms the T-Square (three of four mutable signs: Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces).

Virgo / Pisces focuses on the issues of work and play in general along with questions regarding attention to detail (does it help by identifying important issues or does cause harm by wasting time and other resources).  They also address healthcare, with Virgo focused on healthcare providers (nurses and physicians and similar) and Pisces focuses on the illness (and how to “heal” from it (including death)).

Sagittarius forms the apex of the T-Square (with the Malefics Mars and Saturn there, both retrograde), and we find that answers to these work/play isseus (or healthcare issues) are likely located in either higher education (Universities and similar) or the legal system.

The T-Squares (multiple, overlapping) provide guidance on where you should consider focusing your efforts at this time: work, play (or rest and recovery), health, healthcare, higher education, and the legal system.  Since we are dealing with mutables, we should be looking to “wrap up” current issues and move on to new ideas and new projects.

New Moon 2016-04-07 (Hele + Thor’s Hammer)

New Moon 2016-04-07 (Hele + Thor’s Hammer)

The New Moon is exact Apr 7 2016 6:23:36 AM CDT.  A number of T-Squares and two ongoing Grand Trines continue to be active, and we will not discuss those here.  Additionally, a Thor’s Hammer (using the North Node, a point rather than a planet although a particularly important point (especially to Vedic astrologers)) and a Hele are present.  (For more about other New Moons this year, click here.  For more on Full Moons, click here.)

As is true with all Thor’s Hammer (God’s Fist) patterns, a potential for violence is present.  Avoid dangerous or unstable people, places, and things, and avoid being one yourself.  Harness this energy to “get things done” (if you can) and note that this particular TH has a “karmic” quality because of North Node involvement.  A smart thing to do is to anonymously help someone, maybe several someones, who is is less fortunate than yourself.  Keep in mind that word “anonymous.”  That is an important piece of the puzzle.

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

A Hele is also present.  The Hele is a polarizing pattern.  That tells us that our alliances are important, and we need to choose wisely.  Here is the same NM chart, filtered for the Hele pattern:

In this case Pluto is square to Sun/Moon, so the New Moon is intricately involved in the pattern.  North Node is also involved (karma, again) as well as asteroid Astraea (law and legal system).  Do not be surprised to find yourself “going to war” with someone.

Here is a list of Aries New Moons, from 1950 to 2050:

2016-04-06 Sun Square Pluto (Hele + Grand Trines + TH)

This repeats in two versions, each once a year.  The other one will be in October, and both will repeat in April and October for the next few years.  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.  This particular aspect has a Hele (issues regarding long term alliances), Grand Trines, and a Thor’s Hammer.  We present the chart filtered for the Hele:

Full Moon 2:22 (February 22nd 2016)

Full Moon 2:22 (February 22nd 2016)

Some days are simple, and others are complex.  The same can be said for lunations (Full Moons and New Moons): some are simple, and some are complex.  The Full Moon today, and associated aspects, are complex.

First of all, the numerologists are surely have a field day with this.  (Note: I am not a numerologist.  Repeating star cycles make “sense” to me.  Repeating number cycles, that seem otherwise random, do not.  But, I am willing to “give them a chance.”)

Today is a 2:22 “Master Number Day” in a nine (9) year.  Since, in Western Numerology, “nines” disappear (when you use them to reduce a number you get the original number back), that means that today is a pure “2:22” Master number day.  A similar Full Moon will not occur again until 2035, and 2035 reduces to “1” which means THAT “2:22” Master Number Full Moon is not “pure” like this one.  From this vantage point, alone, today is special.

AND, we have four patterns present in this Full Moon: (1) a Hele indicating important allegiances being formed or “updated”; (2) a Yod indicating an important decision today (probably about the allegiances though not necessarily); (3) a Square Key (which indicates that important “lessons” can be learned from the outcomes of today’s decisions; and (4) a Thor’s Hammer (the “God’s Fist” pattern which provides “energy” but can lead to anger, tempers flaring, and sometimes violence or explosions).  To be certain, it is a very “busy” day.

Sun in Pisces is opposed by Moon in Virgo.  As many have written elsewhere, this brings into play themes of work (Virgo) and play (Pisces), detailed oriented tasks such as bookkeeping and accounting as opposed to development of lyrics and music, and similar Pisces / Virgo issues.  With Jupiter (the “old” or “traditional” ruler of Pisces) nearby in Virgo and Neptune (the modern ruler of Pisces) nearby in its home sign of Pisces, the Pisces side of these issues is particularly emphasized.  Weirdly, this could mean odd things such as seeing the “music” in bookkeeping and accounting or similar viewpoints.  (And this is a very important date for anyone in the “music business.”)

In addition to the Full Moon, Venus is particularly active today.  Issues of health, beauty, and finances come to the forefront.  Venus quintile Mars brings innovative ideas about how to “get things done.”  Venus septile Saturn may provide some hard lessons about how we thing about helping those less fortunate than ourselves.  Venus undecile Neptune brings in issues of dreams, poetry, music, drugs and alcohol, and those are already in play with this particular Full Moon.

Outer planet aspects are particularly active, and Hygeia enters Virgo (again, emphasizing the healthcare issues associated with this Full Moon).  Neptune is semisquare Vesta, and we find ourselves feeling some sense of urgency in which our traditions and “how we have always done it” are in conflict with our desires and hopes regarding play, health, dreams, music, poetry, drugs and alcohol.  (Maybe it is time to find a new way to “get things done.”)  Juno semisquares Hygeia, and somehow some of us find our faith shaken in an important way regarding health and the healthcare system.  Jupiter is semi-sextile Black Moon Lilith (a point, not a planet), and some of us must explore taboo topics particularly regarding sex and sexuality.

Here is a list of New Moons for 2016, and here is a list of Full Moons for 2016.

As an aside, I am including the forecast for the previous day (Sunday 2:21) rather than making a separate post for it:

February 2016

Week 9 (W09)

Sunday February 21st

Sunday continues the yod of Saturday in a different variant form with Chiron effectively replacing Neptune and forcing issues involving health or education (or both) to the forefront.  A grand fire trine (Uranus / Moon / Saturn) helps us to “get things done” particularly if we are either a fire sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) or an air sign (Libra, Aquarius, Gemini).  Since fire signs are favored most, if you are a air sign you would be smart to hitch your wagon to a fire sign today if you can.  Water and Earth signs can “get things done” also, but are not favored as much (except by means of any fire or air sign planets you might have in your natal chart).  Whatever the case, make your decision by 10 AM CST if you want to be effective in “getting things done” today.

Moon (Leo) squares Mars (Scorpio) at 7:18 PM CST and then goes void.  Best to have your project finished by this point in time if at all possible.  Stick with productive time before the void and use the void for “cleanup” activities once the void begins.

Full Moon 2016-02-22 Square Key, Hele, Thor’s Hammer, and more

Full Moon 2016-02-22 Square Key, Hele, Thor’s Hammer, and more

This is a complex Full Moon, and it will be more of a turning point for some people than others.  A Hele is present (one that involves Uranus / Pluto, of the famous series of squares involving those planets since 2012).  We will see a solidification of alliances that moves beyond anything we have seen before.  No doubt this will particularly play out in the political area (especially Presidential politics), but we will see it elsewhere as well.

The Square Key, an interlaced pair of Huber Learning Triangles, brings us a set of important “lessons” related to the decisions today.  A Yod, with Vesta at the apex, forces us to between Mars (taking action, quickly and decisively) and the North Node (a point rather than the planet, but an important one involving “karma” (Rahu/Ketu in the Vedic world) and struggling to “work through” an important issue).  We also have a Thor’s Hammer (involving the Moon (of the FM) and the Uranus/Pluto pair mentioned earlier.  This gives much “energy” but can lead to anger, tempers flaring, and sometimes even violence.

We have four patterns in play: (1) a Hele; (2) a Square Key; (3) a Yod; and (4) a Thor’s Hammer.  This is a particularly busy Full Moon, and 2016 has a number of these.

We present the Full Moon chart, perfecting in Plano TX, filtered for the Hele:

As noted elsewhere, this day is also active regarding Outer Planets (Mars out).  Some of the activity includes Hygeia, Juno, Jupiter, and Neptune.  Here is a link to the chart for the similar 2014 Full Moon and the similar 2015 Full Moon.

For those interested in other interpretations:

For those who wish to look back (retrospective) and look forward (prospective) at “similar” Full Moons (Moon in Virgo / Sun in Pisces), here is the list of the dates and times of perfection of similar FM’s from 2010 to 2050:

Friday January 29th 2016

Friday a Hard Rectangle perfects.  These tend to be rare, but quite a few of them perfect in 2016.   This is a strange day in which you either come to a complete halt or accomplish more than you can ordinarily hope for.  Middle ground does not tend to exist in any matter; extremism will tend to dominate.  Tempers can flare, so direct your focus appropriately.

In Europe and the UK, as well as those in Eastern Standard Time, Mercury conjunct Pluto perfects on Saturday, shortly after midnight for those in EST.  For points west, including CST, MST, and PST, the perfection of this aspect occurs Friday evening.  In any case, this amplifies the effects of both the Thor’s Hammer and the Hard Rectangle. Please note that this aspect corresponds to its mirror image that occurred January 22nd and the same or similar issues from that date will likely arise again. This aspect is ALSO part of a T-Square, with the second part (Mercury Square Uranus) perfecting on Sunday.  Expect an “exciting” weekend.

We will not “feel” Mercury conjunct Pluto again until December 8th, and it does not perfect again until January 22, 2017.  If you keep notes and do advanced planning, you might want to note on your calendar to review your notes from December 2015 / January 2016 (and this weekend in particular) when those dates arrive.  We note that we are currently still early in the Presidential primaries now, but we will be facing the inauguration of the new President (whoever that is) at that time.

Mars septile Jupiter gives this day an odd “karmic” kind of feel and, sadly, that may involve people “blowing things out of proportion.”  (Mars / Jupiter is a huge, and sometimes dangerous, amplifier of whatever is current.  In this case, that is (1) Mercury conjunct Pluto; (2) a month long Thor’s Hammer; and (3) a Hard Rectangle.  EACH of those can bring  violence, and all three together are quite scary.)

(We expect January to go out with a “bang.”)

Mercury Conjunct Pluto 2015-01-29 (Thor’s Hammer)

We can add little to describe the third in this series except to say that it brackets what has been a tough window for some people (form Jan 22 to Jan 29).  The previous perfections were on December 19, 2015 and January 22, 2016.  The good news is that this should clear out in a few days, and February should bring some relief.
