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.”

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:

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.

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.

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.

March 18th through 19th of 2020: Sun in Pisces, Anaretic and Saturn in Capricorn, Anaretic

March 18th through 19th of 2020: Sun in Pisces, Anaretic and Saturn in Capricorn, Anaretic

This is easy to miss; I almost did.  As such, this entry is later than I would like (i.e., we have entered the 24 hour period as I write this).

The anaretic degree of any sign has been discussed at length.  Specifically, it is the final degree of a sign before a planet moves into a new sign.  Outer planets (capable of retrograde) may cross this region several times.  Cafe Astrology has an excellent explanation of the anaretic degree.  I will not duplicate their work except for a modification.

My original understanding of the anaretic degree came from a presenter at UAC ’98 (I think maybe Carol Wiggers, a William Lilly expert).  She sold me on Lilly.  While my depth of understanding is not “deep” in the ordinary sense of the word (except maybe for Lewi, who I read and re-read), my favorite astrologers are Grant Lewi, Dane Rudhyar, William Lilly, and Anthony Louis.  Of these, only Louis is still alive, and he has a WordPress blog!  Indeed, I have reblogged some of his most excellent content.

So, my point about the anaretic degree is this: if I understand Lilly correctly, he treated the final three degrees of a sign as “fated.”  Free will might exist in other areas, but not in the final three, and especially not in the “anaretic” (or final) degree.  Cafe Astrology, on the other hand, portrays the degree as “indecisive.”

The two viewpoints are not mutually exclusive (one could be indecisive because “fate” is actually driving the decision), but they are not necessarily the same, either.  The analysis you are reading is based on this understanding of mine.  (Lilly also called the first three degrees “too early to tell.”  While Lilly strictly applied it to horary, I apply it to other areas and, in my opinion, it works.)

Let’s get started.  Here is a head’s up of my main points:

  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.)

Fifth Harmonic Aspects

[Click to Enlarge]

The 5th harmonic connections of Mercury (communications and transportation), Venus (values and finances and sometimes health), and Astraea (law and legal matters) foretells possible innovations emerging from the coming difficulties.  But Mercury ties into the Thor’s Hammer, so difficult lessons may face us first.

Seventh Harmonic Aspects

[Click to Enlarge]

The connection of Juno (trust and betrayal), Saturn (often difficult and painful lessons), and the North Node (“fate” or “karma) using septiles (high order lessons involving karma that CAN produce breakthrough insights) seems to foretell the Thor’s Hammer of the coming Vernal Equinox.

United States Map

[Click to Enlarge]

At least four different sets of lessons face the United States, varying by part of the country.

Canada Map

[Click to Enlarge]

Western Canada has Saturn and Pluto on IC (Fourth House Cusp) lines; this location (Fourth House Cusp) is sometimes called the “Final Resting Place,” or “the grave.”

United Kingdom

[Click to Enlarge]

UK is hit by so many lines that interpretation appears to be difficult.  But, it looks like a rough ride for them.  Since we already know that, the astrology is merely confirming the obvious.

Australia and New Zealand

[Click to Enlarge]

Similar to the UK, one of the coasts of Australia is hit by a cluster of lines, a sign of challenges.

Europe

[Click to Enlarge]

The EU is too complex to cover in a single entry.  This can be viewed as “homework” or, alternatively, someone else might choose to produce an analysis.

China

[Click to Enlarge]

Similar to the UK and Australia, a large number of lines go through China.  Again, this simply tells us what we already know.

Japan

[Click to Enlarge]

Japan faces complex and sophisticated lessons.  What interpretation?  Unclear.  But do not be surprised if Japan is the one to develop a cure or vaccine.  The multiple crossings tell us of sophisticated thinking about this thorny problem (Coronavirus, Covid19).

India

[Click to Enlarge]

Two DISTINCTLY different regions and approaches.  SOME of the ingenuity of Japan is seen here, also.

Southeast Asia

This is merely a “zoomed out” viewpoint of other maps (China, India, & Japan).  However, it could facilitate analysis of other regions.

 

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).

Vernal Equinox 2017 (The First Day of Spring) Grand Cross

Vernal Equinox 2017 (The First Day of Spring) Grand Cross

[As we frequently do, we are likely to tune and update this post through the time of the perfection of the equinox.  Therefore, you might want to check back.]

The Vernal Equinox of 2017 has a Grand Cross pattern in it if you use certain asteroids (and a T-Square otherwise):

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We omit the T-Square variant (which is identical)

A rather peculiar Grand Trine is present (if you are willing to use asteroids and the nodes):

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The 5th Harmonic variant shows significant activity but no patterns of note:

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Our interpretation is that you might have some bright ideas, some particularly useful ones, but this is not a peak time of creativity.  (Nevertheless, opportunities are present if you are a “creative” that you should harness.)

We do see a triangular pattern present in the Septiles, and we believe that this means that this is a good time to help others less fortunate than yourself without expectations of any returns.  You may obtain an important glimpse of the future in the process of giving.

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Although a horary format is not technically appropriate for such an event, we present it anyway for the useful information that can be used in other ways.  One way I like to use it is to reverse engineer: what question would I be asking if I saw a chart like this?

[Click Image to Enlarge]

In this case, the question is something like this: “Can I trust the opinion of my friends about my money/new job?”  The answer is, succinctly, NO!  The Moon is peregrine (thieves, not trustworthy) in the 11th house of Friends and conjunct Saturn; both are at 27 degrees.  The last three degrees of anything are often “fate” and frequently void and generally unfavorable.  And as many as six (or more) are operating together to steer you in the wrong direction.  This is one time to NOT follow the “wisdom of crowds.”  Keep your own counsel!

But the Sun is at 0 degrees (of course!) in the 2nd house of Money, so we do not get a “real answer” about the money / job just yet.  It will come soon enough, maybe in a few days or possibly up to three weeks (after Mercury goes Retrograde and some misplaced message is found or vice versa).  Just persist, and as much as possible keep your plans to yourself.

This is just my interpretation, and surely others would read it differently.  (This is why I encourage checking a number of oracles / opinions.)

We now present the maps.  These are NOT the kind of detailed astrological maps that Kepler provides (or Solar Fire can provide with the “right” options set), but instead the more general maps.  We start with the United States map:

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Noting the triple crossing in Canada, a few hundred miles north of Burlington VT, we think something interesting might happen there.

The Vernal Equinox was March 19th / 20th depending on your location (with Venus conjunct Neptune on the same day), and the next lunation (a Aries / Libra Lunar Eclipse (a special type of Full Moon)) wad on March 23rd (Jupiter perfects a square to Saturn a few hours earlier on the same day).   Jupiter / Saturn has been exerting ongoing influence (especially on the financial markets), and this is the second of three with the first being last fall.

2016-03 W13: Forecasts for Week 13 of 2016

March 2016 (Mars Out)

Archive of Week 12 (W12)

Week 13 (W13)

Sunday March 20th

For the eastern coast of the United States (aka the “East Coast”), the Vernal Equinox occurs today at half past midnight.  (To determine the time for your locale, click here.)   Venus (Pisces) joins Neptune (Pisces), and this is a very good “feel good” day but a terrible day to sign contracts or make long term commitments.  Spiritual endeavors tend to prosper (as long as no long term commitment is involved).  Pluto is active in higher order aspects to Pallas (ingenious plans, especially military in nature) and Vesta (traditions).  Expect issues involving death and dying (or taxes) to surface today and be blended into spirituality.

Monday March 21st

Today is the “Ecclesiastical” beginning of Spring (used as part of the determination of when Easter occurs).  Moon is in Virgo all day and quite active.  Mercury enters Aries in the evening and is void (v/c) prior to that.  Communications and transportation problems may emerge during this window; do not buy a vehicle, computer, or phone during this time.  And, whether we are aware of it or not, we are preparing in some way on some level for what the upcoming Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon Aries / Libra) will bring us.

Moon becomes void only a few hours later, making it difficult to accomplish anything lasting today.  Stick to routine tasks and plans for action after the eclipse on Wednesday.

Tuesday March 22nd

Moon is void in Virgo all day long, entering Libra 10:23 PM PDT / 11:23 PM MDT in the swestern part of the United States.  Again, stick to routine tasks and plans for action after the eclipse on Wednesday.

Wednesday March 23rd

We have a double header with Jupiter Square Saturn today along with the Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon Aries / Libra).  Note that Jupiter / Saturn will perfect again May 26th, and this aspect exerts continuing influence from February 14th of 2016 until October 28th of 2016.  Chances are good this week, maybe today, will mark an important milestone in this window.  The eclipse punctuates that.

Sun conjoins Mercury circa 3:11 PM CDT, and the window form 2:40 PM until 3:40 PM CDT is particularly useful (Cazimi) for key actions involving communications or transportation.  You can buy that car, computer or phone if you can seal the entire deal during this window.

A Hard Rectangle also forms on the 23rd:

 Hard Rectangle Enters   March 23 2016 5:56:47 am (CDT +5:00)
 Hard Rectangle Leaves March 23 2016 3:32:35 pm (CDT +5:00)

Thursday March 24th

Mercury trines Mars today, and you should accomplish all you can prior to Moon becoming void of course after its opposition to Uranus.  The aspect (the opposition) can bring some very smart ideas, but you need to wait until you have more information, some time Friday afternoon (tomorrow), before you attempt to put those into action.  Take this “time off” to do as much research as you can and lay the foundation without making any major commitments to move forward.

Friday March 25th

At 1:10 PM CDT the Moon moves into Scorpio, but you still may want to wait a few hours to put into action your plans from yesterday evening since the Moon is in the “too early to tell” period (also known as a “sign change boundary”).  You MIGHT can make “it” work (whatever “it” is), but the venture will be risky and require significant concentration to make “it” work.

Venus (Pisces) opposes Jupiter (Virgo) and squares Saturn (Sagittarius) today, forming a mutable T-Square.  The T-Square will give you great energy, but mutable T’s are about finishing the tasks at hand (bring them to completion), cleaning up, and laying the groundwork to launch the next major endeavor.

Saturday March 26th

As far as “getting things done” goes, Saturday is a powerhouse, the best day this week.  If you did not launch your new project yesterday, then launch it today and accomplish all you can today.  Set leisure activities aside for another day, and focus on accomplishing the most important tasks today, especially anything part of a larger project.

Sun (Aries) trines Mars (Sagittarius), Venus (Pisces) sextiles Pluto (Capricorn), and the Moon has MOSTLY favorable aspects (two small glitches, one in the early morning hours and one shortly before 8 AM CDT; you can move past these and SHOULD do that).  Get’er done!

Week 14 (W14)

Sunday March 27th

Moon turns void, and yesterday’s windows close.  If you did not achieve completion, then you must put it on hold or stick to routine activities only (possibly at risk even with those).  Today is not a “bad” day, but you will find it difficult to achieve lasting results today.  Use this as a “day of rest” from yesterday and stick to cleaning up and planning for forward action on another day.

2016-03 W12: Forecasts for Week 12 of 2016

The Vernal Equinox is March 19th / 20th depending on your location (with Venus conjunct Neptune on the same day), and the next lunation (a Aries / Libra Full Moon) follows on March 23rd (Jupiter perfects a square to Saturn a few hours earlier on the same day).  You already feel Jupiter / Saturn (especially the financial markets do), and this is the second of three with the first being last fall.

Focused Yods are also present this month, and we can “get things done” during these periods (absent other considerations such as v/c moons):

Moon is v/c from 4:47 AM CDT until 4:04 PM CDT.  Since Daylight Savings Time went into effect overnight, the accompanying void seems somehow appropriate.  Slow down, be careful, avoid major purchases or commitments, and find some time to center yourself as Spring approaches.  Later tonight, after Moon enters Gemini, Moon squares Venus (Pisces) and opposes Mars (Sagittarius) to form a T-Square.  Chances are good that this is much ado about nothing.

Outer Planets: Jupiter (law, legal, higher education, long distance travel, and people related to these topics) perfects a long term opposition to Ceres (prosperity in general and food in particular) and issues related to these “come to a head” either over the weekend (a few days before), today, or in the next few days.  Two outer planet quincunxes perfect, also make this a bit of an unpleasant day.  (Jupiter quincunx Pallas, Chiron quincunx Astraea)

Monday March 14th

International Math Day, Pi Day, or Einstein’s Birthday: take your pick.  (“All of the above” is the right answer here.)  Informally, the Moon forms a very loose grand cross with an opposition to Saturn and squares to Neptune and Jupiter.  You will either accomplish much or nothing at all.  (No in-betweens on this one.)

Mercury squares Saturn, forcing you to pay attention to detail, but the perfection of Venus square Mars distracts you with issues of love and sex (or, if those don’t apply, family, power, & money).  Outer planets are relatively quiet, but Uranus triseptile Juno suggests that a kind move that is helpful to a family member who deserved better treatment in the past is a very good idea today.  But today is very important because of the Diamond Pattern present today along with other patterns.  In fact, the patterns tell us that this may be one of the most important days (or several days) this year, maybe in several years.

A Diamond Pattern (rare) is present today and starts March 14 2016 4:13:20 pm (CDT +5:00) and continues until March 14 2016 8:35:22 pm (CDT +5:00).

A Mystic Rectangle is present late in the day and tomorrow and makes this, possibly, one of the best two days for art and creativity:

Mystic Rectangle Enters Mar 14 2016 9:05:45 pm (CDT +5:00)
Mystic Rectangle Leaves Mar 15 2016 8:08:02 am (CDT +5:00)

A series of Thor’s Hammer Patterns are also present, so watch your temper and focus all that energy into “getting things done” (especially if they are artistic in nature).

Again, the patterns tell us that March 14th of 2016 may be one of the most important days (or several days) this year, maybe in several years.  The entire week is important.  Jupiter Trine Pluto with a Grand Quintile is an important turning point for some people, especially artists and other creatives.  We are setting the stage for the upcoming full moon / lunar eclipse.

Tuesday March 15th (Ides of March)

[Written in retrospective.]  Today a number of important elections occur.  Given the aspects and patterns of Monday and Wednesday, we believe you will see significant changes / events occur.  Mercury (Pisces) opposes Jupiter (Virgo), and Mercury also is sextile Pluto (Capricorn).  The three, together, form a triangular pattern that is yet another indicator of powerful changes.

Venus also perfects a semisquare to Uranus, adding both a sense of urgency and a sense of weirdness to the day.  Capture those unexpected insights if you cannot put them into practice today so that you can followup on them on another day if necessary.  But, if you can, take advantage of the “luck” of perfection of Jupiter Trine Pluto tomorrow to accomplish something amazing.

Wednesday March 16th

Jupiter Trine Pluto perfects today, the second in a series of three.  A Grand Quintile is also present earlier in the day, and that is a rare pattern that can produce powerful insights (genius level) as well as bode well for the development of creative works.  Take advantage of the rare opportunity that today presents as best you can.  Days like today are rare indeed.

Thursday March 17th

We note that the Moon is very busy today, perfecting seven aspects (not including higher order aspects such as quintiles and septiles). The afternoon and evening has a series of lunar trines on this traditional Irish holiday (the date of St. Patrick’s death), and we expect the evening to go well for most people (except anyone who consumes too much in the way of mood altering substances and contributes to an accident or other harmful situation).

Mercury conjunct Chiron today tells us that we have communications and transportation related to health, education or both. Much of today is about processing the earlier three days of the week.

Friday March 18th

A relatively benevolent Moon v/c begins after midnight (Moon Trine Sun) and ends near 4 AM CDT with the entry of the Moon into Leo. The moon is more quiet today than yesterday, with quincunx aspects to Venus (afternoon) and Neptune (evening). You may encounter a few glitches, but for most people they will be forgetten in a day or two and certainly by next week.

Outer planet aspects are far more busy (yesterday was relatively quiet with a Ceres / Uranus aspect bring a surprise regarding our prosperity (“The Visa is maxed out? Again?)).

Mars sesquiquadrate Uranus brings us some sense of urgency (possibly anger) to “get things done.”  Chiron opposite North Node (“Rahu” to some) means it is conjunct the South Node (“Ketu”) and, therefore, we have a temptation to “take the easy way out” or “cut corners” regarding some issue involving healthcare, education, or both.  (Don’t do it!)

Pallas does BiQuintile Hygeia, and we CAN have a brilliant insight into how to solve problems today.  Just focus your efforts, do not get derailed, do not cut corners, and do the work necessary.

Saturday March 19th

In most of the United States, except the Eastern Time Zone (EDT), the Vernal Equinox greets us late tonight.  (EU / UK experience this a half past 5 or half past 6 or later depending upon time zone.)

Sun biseptiles Saturn, and we should consider resolving some old karma or helping someone less fortunate than ourselves or both.  Sun quintiles Pluto, and we may encounter a very ingenious idea that either (a) helps us with the biseptiles (helping someone else) or (b) gives us a gift in the form of a smart idea that comes from providing said help.  In any case, they go together and they set the stage for the days to come at least until the Summer Solstice (late June) or possibly as long as the Vernal Equinox of next year (late March).  Venus septile Pluto confirms this emphasis on helping others.

Venus novile Uranus provides us with a gift of some sort this evening, an insight or useful skill, likely resulting from helping others (or maybe an insight because we failed to help; those can be hard lessons sometimes).

Week 13 (W13)

 

Sun Enters Aries (Vernal Equinox) 2016-03-19 (Focused Yod)

Sun Enters Aries (Vernal Equinox) 2016-03-19

The Vernal Equinox occurs March 19th in most of the United States and March 20th in UK / Europe.  (Click here for more about the change of seasons in 2016.)  We have a Focused Yod present.  (For more about Focused Yods in 2016, click here.)  That pattern requires you to make a decision (choose wisely!) but also gives you the power to “get things done” once you have made that decision.  That pattern occurring at this time will give you both a similar requirement and a similar advantage until at least the Summer Solstice and possibly as long as the Vernal Equinox in 2017.

Here is the chart for the Vernal Equinox of 2016, filtered for the Focused Yod:

Other patterns are also present, including a Hele and a Square Key.  For more about Hele patterns in 2016, click here.  For more about Square Keys in 2016, click here.

Here is the same chart filtered for the Hele, an ongoing pattern at this time that contains Uranus, Pluto, Astraea, and the North Node (also known as Rahu, sometimes called “hard karma,” and a point in space rather than a physical planet).  You are making decisions about who will be your long term alliances this month, and that continues to be an important issue today:

The ongoing Square Key also tells us that you will be learning important “lessons” at this time.  Saturn, Uranus, Pluto, and the North Node are involved, so the “lessons” could be a bit harsh at times.  If you survive them, you will have new ideas, be fundamentally transformed in some way, and be aware of what is essential.

Here is the chart for the ongoing (longer term) Square Key:

As we have written elsewhere, higher order aspects with outer planets are also in play today.  (These also tend to be “longer term.”)  For your convenience we will present some of that analysis here (but click the link if you want more):

Sun biseptiles Saturn, and we should consider resolving some old karma or helping someone less fortunate than ourselves or both.  Sun quintiles Pluto, and we may encounter a very ingenious idea that either (a) helps us with the biseptiles (helping someone else) or (b) gives us a gift in the form of a smart idea that comes from providing said help.  Venus is also novile Uranus today, providing us with an important insight or skill.  [click here to read more]

A Grand Fire Trine is also present today (today only), and that tells us that we face an opportunity (particularly strong if you are heavy in your personal chart with Fire / Air signs).  Here is the same chart filtered for the Grand Fire Trine:

2016-03-19 Calendar of Aspects

March 2016 (Mars Out)

Week 12 (W12)

In most of the United States, except the Eastern Time Zone (EDT), the Vernal Equinox greets us late tonight.  (EU / UK experience this a half past 5 or half past 6 or later depending upon time zone.)

2016-03-19 Sunout All Aspects (Daily)

Sun biseptiles Saturn, and we should consider resolving some old karma or helping someone less fortunate than ourselves or both.  Sun quintiles Pluto, and we may encounter a very ingenious idea that either (a) helps us with the biseptiles (helping someone else) or (b) gives us a gift in the form of a smart idea that comes from providing said help.  In any case, they go together and they set the stage for the days to come at least until the Summer Solstice (late June) or possibly as long as the Vernal Equinox of next year (late March)…

Here is the chart for the Vernal Equinox of 2015.  In terms of traditional (and modern) Western Astrology, the Vernal Equinox marks the beginning of Spring.  The equinox is one of eight key dates that repeat each year.

 Vernal Equinox 2015 2015-03-20 Plano TX

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Please note that this shift, and it is a major shift astrologically, occurs about an hour after the peak time for the Solar Eclipse on the same date and less than a week after the final Uranus Square Pluto exact square (in that series).  You may find the links to maps on this navigation page to also be useful.

Vernal Equinox 2015 2015-03-20 Windemere ME

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We also present the chart for Windemere, ME, within a few minutes of the Descendant line (Sun on 7th house cusp as it enters Aries):

If you are able to travel, take your Equinox celebration “seriously,” and are located in the United States, then Windemere (located about halfway between Augusta and Bangor) is the place to be for this particular Equinox.  However, some alternatives do exist.

Speaking of such alternatives, here is the world map (Solar Maps):

Vernal Equinox 2014 (First Day of Spring)

Here is the chart for the Vernal Equinox of 2014:

Vernal Equinox 2014 2014-03-17_23-18-18

 

We note that this happens near lunchtime in the Central Time Zone (CDT).  So, some people might “feel” this shift.  A grand water trine (Jupiter in Cancer, Moon in Scorpio, and Chiron & Neptune in Pisces) has perfected earlier (within the preceding 24 hours) and is disspating as this shift occurs.  If your chart is heavy on earth/water then you should consider “getting things done” before this shift occurs.  If you are more fire/air, then wait until afterwards (and after the Moon moves into Sadge).

Here is the U.S. Solar Map:

Vernal Equinox 2014 US Map 2014-03-17_23-28-35

I note that, curiously, the Sun at Midheaven aligns exactly on top of Dartmouth College in New Hampshire.  Which opens the question: what amazing developments will we see from that revered Ivy League school this year?

Mercury at Midheaven aligns over the top of the home of the author of this blog.  Maybe this will be a good year for writing?

 

March 2013 Full Moon (Aries / Libra)

March 14, 2013 at 12:28 am | Posted in 2013, 2013-Lunations, Astrology | 1 Comment
Tags: , , , , ,

A few days after the Vernal Equinox of 2013, which is a few days after a Mercury Direct Station, the full moon culminates.  The is a Libra Moon opposite the Sun in Aries.

Most of the planets that were in Pisces have moved into Aries at this point.  They are applying to a sextile to Jupiter in Gemini.  This is a fortunate time for those with strong Fire and Air components in their natal charts, and it may be one of the best times this year for people (or other entities, such as corporations) to achieve critical results.

A yod involving Jupiter (Gemini) and Saturn & Pluto (Scorpio & Capricorn, respectively) is also present here and though roughly April 10th.  Decisions will be made during this window that will affect many people for years to come.

Here is the chart:

Full Moon March 2013 3-14-2013 12-54-00 AM[Click on Graphic to Enlarge Image]

Here is the aspect grid, produced in PAT and perhaps easier to read:

PAT Full Moon March 2013 3-14-2013 1-04-53 AM

[Click on Graphic to Enlarge Image]

This is another highly active period.  Almost every block of the aspect grid is filled with SOMEthing.  Compare, for example, the aspect grid from PAT for the moment when this chart was cast (March 14th):

PAT Time of casting of FM Chart 3-14-2013 1-08-37 AM

[Click on Graphic to Enlarge Image]

Note that this grid is not nearly as active, and it is a more “typical” grid if you were just to pick a random time to produce a grid.  In contrast, the full moon grid has four squares to Pluto and four quincunxes (inconjuncts) to Saturn.  Frankly, this looks like a very difficult period.

That said, we can safely assume that this is a highly activated full moon, and since it is following both the Vernal Equinox and the Mercury direct station, we expect “interesting” events to occur at this time.  This could be another period similar to the Spring / Summer of 2010 with multiple disasters that culminated in the Deepwater Horizon disaster.

Here is a list of aspects at this time, sorted from shortest term to longest term.  (You can use this to plan your time horizons for whatever it is that you are launching at this time.)

Here is the chart for the Spring 2013 Equinox (Vernal Equinox 2013, The First Day of Spring, March 20, 2013):

Vernal Equinox Spring 2013 1-18-2013 11-24-01 PM

[Click Image to Enlarge]

A grand water trine is present in this chart, with the Moon in its home in Cancer, Saturn in Scorpio, and the following four planets in Pisces: Neptune, Mercury, Chiron, and Venus.  For the “first day of Spring,” we can safely say that water is emphasized.  (Let us hope it brings nuturing rains but not floods.)

Mars perfects a conjunction to Uranus soon after the Equinox, and both are applying to squares to Pluto in Capricorn.  Both are applying to sextile Jupiter, and Jupiter is apply to quincunx Pluto.  This is an “energetic” (and possibly violent) time.

We suspect that the events of this time are an important prelude to the Grand Water Trine of July 2013.  (Also, to compare the Vernal Equinox of 2012, click here.)

Here are the midpoint trees for the Vernal Equinox of 2013:

Looking at the U.S. map, we see the lower Mississippi river valley is highly activated, including New Orleans:

We do not know whether this brings flood or drought, but we hope it brings neither.  We hope it brings healing.

Earthquakes in Mexico (2012)

September 23, 2012 at 10:26 am | Posted in Astrology, Predictions | 1 Comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

While briefly reviewing the email from GrandTrines readers, and conducting some other brief research, I came across a link from Jude Cowell’s Stars Over WashingtonNeptune Cafe on 2012.  If you are interested in the 2012 predictions, then you might want to read that.

In that piece, the authors (Neptune Cafe) claimed that (based on their reading of a popular book by Jenkins) May 20, 2012 is an important date, and the authors (of Neptune Cafe) stated that “we could suggest that Mexico City will be destroyed by a violent earthquake.”

Well, Mexico City is alive (but possibly not well due to the crime waves of recent years).  And, we point out here that Jenkins is a target of skeptics.  Further, we do not adopt a “doomsday” point of view of 2012 on this blog although we do believe that a huge societal transformation has been in progress at least since World War II and probably since the American Revolution.  Even most skeptics would agree with that.  Unlike skeptics, however, we believe this transformation is part of a cosmic calendar rather than “mere chance.”  And, to adopt a trite expression, we believe “the best is yet to come.”

However, the following is worthy of note: (1) a magnitude 7.6 earthquake shook Mexico City at the time of the Vernal Equinox of 2012 and (2) a smaller 5.4 earthquake shook the city again at the time of the Autumnal Equinox of 2012.  (In case that link breaks, see here or here.)

Could we see a similar event again at the Winter’s Solstice of 2012?

First Day of Spring: Vernal Equinox 2012

Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

The Vernal Equinox of 2012 is at hand. 

Here is the basic chart, set in Plano. 

If you are planning a celebration, and you are in the Western Hemisphere, hold it on the evening of the 19th (or perhaps the 18th).  However, avoid significant actions to launch new projects until the New Moon of the 22nd.  The weekend following the 22nd will herald the true beginning of Spring for many. 

I recommend closing all “old business” by the 18th, using the remaining period until Friday the 23rd as a “week off” (expect unexpected changes due to strong influence of the Uranus / Pluto square), and have fun the following weekend.  (That would be a great weekend for marriage proposals.)

If you would like a list of Moon Phases for both 2012 and 2013, try here:  http://www.calendar-365.com/moon/moon-phases.html

From that list, we note that August of 2012 has a Blue Moon on August 31st.

Using this source:  http://www.seasky.org/astronomy/astronomy-calendar-2012.html  We note that the already spectacular Full Moon of May 6th will be accompanied by a meteor shower to the east, in the constellation of Aquarius.  Perhaps this is another good time for a celebration.

From that same source, we observe that the Summer’s Solstice this year will immediately FOLLOW a New Moon.  This will be another interesting time.

Vernal Equinox 2012 Maps

United States

With Mars at Midheaven in Southern Mexico, here in Plano, and north through Chicago, we can expect an “interesting” Spring along that line.  Great for athletics but also associated with acts of violence.  The Western U.S., and especially Northwestern Mexico, received a benevolent gift of some kind via the Venus & Jupiter (in Taurus) lines.

The East Coast is highly activated, and Uranus is touching Boston.  We expect really smart people there (Cambridge?) doing really smart things, possibly accidents, and a very good chance of both.  A combination of the Node (fate) and several other lines occurs west of Montreal, and we expect Canadians to see some powerful event or culmination of a problem in that region this Spring.  Finally, all of Appalachia this spring will be touched by the Node line, which passes directly through Atlanta and through the “panhandle” of Western Florida (aka “The Emerald Coast”).  The problems of the poor and disenfranchised in this region can no longer be ignored, and we may see some kind of followup to the mining explosion of 2010 (mentioned elsewhere on this blog) that was eclipsed by the BP Oil spill.

Both of those accidents highlight not only abuses, but an abusive way of thinking, among those who occupy positions of power in corporate America.  With Uranus square Pluto for the next few YEARS, expected reversals of fortune that force better behavior on behalf of the poor and disenfranchised in this region.

Australia

Mostly good news for Australia: Melbourne is HIGHLY favored at this time by a Venus at Midheaven.  This is a good place to be at this time; overall, favorable things are happening & will be happening.  On a less pleasant note, Darwin has a Saturn line passing nearby, and this bodes for a period of austerity.  The exact nature is unclear, but this could be further economic contraction.  Whatever remains after this period will be a very strong Darwin focused on the most important principles.  At first blush, Perth does not have any activity.  However, it is roughly at the midpoint between the Pluto and Uranus lines.  Recall, if you will, that this aspect has been described as the “reversal of fortunes” aspect.  Some wealthy will lose their money, and some poor will have newfound fortune.

Finally, New Zealand is so highly activated that I am not sure what to say.  Something tells me that something involving outsiders, not from NZ, is cooking and that it will be very big.  Node, Moon, Neptune, and Chiron all pass through NZ, and they are currently associated with things Piscean.  Issues involving certain arts (music and poetry) and religion could be very big there.  An island to the Northeast has a Mars line passing through it, and it may experience some of the same issues of potential violence (or great athletic performance) as other areas with Mars lines.  Refer to map, below.

That is it for now.  Hope the Venus/Jupiter conjunction of March 14th fares /fared you well.

Update: The VE is almost here, so I am adding a few last minute maps.  First: Asia.

Asia

Note the Sun MC chart line going near Hanoi, Bangkokh, Kuala Lumpur, and Jakarta.  The impact of this particular VE will be particularly powerful for these cities and the region between them (all are on one side or the other of the Sun MC).

The North Node (Karmic) Line is all along the Western Coast of India, indicating some kind of working off of Karma there.  The line is almost on top of Bombay.

A Pluto line also comes near Hanoi, indicating some kind of challenge there.  Based on Pluto’s position in Capricorn, and what it did upon its entry into Capricorn in 2008 (financial crash), I bet Hanoi may especially feel any kind of financial problems that may be currently occurring.  Here is the map.

United Kingdom

Sometimes I just use the Europe map to cover the UK as well, but this time I thought a separate map was appropos.  Note the Neptune Ascendant line through the Channel.  Not sure what this means, but Neptune has a way of sweeping things away.  My guess is that, if they are not showing already, something like signs of dangerous erosion to the infrastructure related to Channel traffice will come to light or SHOULD come to light.  This might even have a more metaphorical meaning, as England and France are forced to somehow re-define their very long term and very old relationship.  Look to what was happening 240 years ago, roughly (the U.S. Revolution?), and you might find the answer.

Chiron’s line touches Glasgow, and this means that Scotland is working on some kind of healing.  My guess is that it is financial but it may be more literal.  Could be an outbreak of some kind, perhaps a late season influenza or something like that.  Given that most of the UK is between the Neptune and Chiron lines, public health may be very much in the public eye, and the time of an overhaul of some kind may be at hand.

On a less favorable note, the Moon line goes through Dublin, Ireland (not to be confused with Dublin, Texas) and Lisbon, Portugal.  Since the Moon is in Pisces, and Pisces rules debt, this could be a bit unfavorable.  However, the Moon is very old and shrinking fast, so maybe this is a chance for resolution of debt issues in these places.  One way or the other, this Spring will be seen as a crucial turning point regarding these debt issues.

Click to Enlarge

Europe

The European map is complex, and only the most cursory analysis is offered here.  Perhaps another astrologer can explore this map in more depth.  (Jude, are you reading this?)  As mentioned earlier, Moon in Pisces (debt) touches Dublin & Lisbon, and Neptune (debt) goes straight through Madrid.  (Neptune, Pisces, and the 12th house are all equivalents, being planet, sign, and house representations of the same things.)  My (sad and gloomy) interpretation is that the European debt problems will worsen this (astrological, VE to VE) year.

The Mars line goes through or near Kobenhaven, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Marseilles, and Algiers.  Mars is the energy to act.  In its high form, it is athletic achievements or at least the ability to get things done.  In low form, and it has a propensity to take the low form, it is violence and war.  Do not be surprised to see riots in any of these cities, possibly related to financial issues.  Notably, Mars is in Virgo, which tends to ameliorate its effects.  Since Virgo rules healthcare, the energy could be plowed into healthcare.  And, Virgo (being opposite Pisces) also relates to debt.  So, this confirms a possible response to the debt issue.  The Pisces-Virgo axis is about the balance between work and play, so some may have a perception that others played while they worked (and paid).

The (Ascendant) Sun line also comes near Kobenhaven as well as Berlin and Rome.  For these cities, the Vernal Equinox will occur near Sunrise.  Generally, this is a fortuitous event, and could signal some relief.  (I know that sounds rather paradoxical, given Berlin’s relationship to Europe’s financial problems.)

A node (karmic) line touches the southwestern tip of Ireland, and a karmic event could occur here (earthquake, explosion, accident, etc.) soon.  Similarly, a Uranus Ascendant line touches Vienna, running roughly North-South, and could signal the same along that line.

Kiev & Minsk are touched by a Venus line, which is very favorable, especially for financial relief and forms of art that resembling sculptures.  Relief is to be expected along this line.  But, a Pluto line runs through eastern Poland and other parts of eastern Europe, passing by Athens as it exits the continent.  As mentioned earlier, Pluto in Capricorn has been associated with financial difficulties, so transformation in these areas will continue to occur.

That said….

Africa

Africa is large and complex.  Much of the analysis of Europe applies to the analogous lines in Africa.  That said, expect to hear interesting news from Cape Town this Spring.
