Wednesday, February 24th 2016 (and Tuesday the 23rd)

Tuesday February 23rd

Another busy day greets us, especially with lunar aspects.  Jupiter opposes Chiron, then the Moon joins Jupiter and immediately opposes Chiron.  Health, healing, work, play, and education issues continue from yesterday.  Really, no rest for the weary today.

Wednesday February 24th

Some of us are still feeling Jupiter opposite Chiron.  It has been building for weeks, and we will still feel it at least through the end of Pisces 2016.  It touched us in November 2015, and it will touch us again in August of 2016.  Health and healing issues (and all things of Jupiter / Chiron) are central issues during this period.

We have something of a break, at least from the frantic lunar aspects, today as a void Moon swallows most of the work day in the Western Hemisphere.  Moon moves into Libra at 4:42 PM CST after going void at 8:23 AM CST on this same day.  It is a bit of a “day off” to recover and process the hectic activity of the past few days.  Use the time to center yourself (and clean house) wisely.  An early morning Mercury / Saturn sextile tomorrow influences today and tells us to pay attention to details especially when doing anything even remotely important.

Outer planet aspects are relatively quiet with the most important one being Vesta Quadrinovile Juno.  Something about our traditions or customs somehow can or does protect us in matters where trust is an issue.  Stick to well-known and tried and true methods and ideas during this time and steer clear of anything remotely weird or “creative” offered by others on this day.  If you have creative ideas yourself, write them down and save them for another day.  Venus semi-sextiles Neptune, so you WILL be tempted.  Just know better and do better.

And, as we mentioned before, pay attention to details.  Whether you are scammed today or not, pay attention to details so that you can spot some similar scheme in the future.  Issues involving prosperity (Ceres, particularly food), the legal system (Astraea), and power, police, and finances (Pluto) are in play here.  The scam might be a scammer on the phone (or in email) posing as your “bank” or posing as the “police.”  Do not be taken in!  Hang up on them and CALL the bank, or police, directly yourself.  Let’s be clear, for many of us “something” is up today.

Chances are good that they will play loss aversion on you:  “ACT NOW to prevent xyz loss.  We are trying to help you.”  Bite on this lure, and you will become the fish fry for supper.  Don’t fall for it!

Pay attention to details: did you get the area code, license plate number, etc.?  (Keep in mind you CAN win here!  Just don’t take the bait, and capture the details to report to the (real) police, bank, etc.

Saturday February 20th 2016 Week 08 (W08)

Saturday February 20th

This is an energetic Saturday, and you can “get things done.”  And, you will feel an urge to do just that.  Issues involving health, education, finances, and taxes come to the forefront.  For some people these will be issues with the police or intelligence agencies.  Take advantage of your sense of urgency and complete what you can.

Moon (Leo) opposes Mercury, Venus (Aquarius) followed by a quincunx to Neptune (Pisces) and a trine to Saturn (Sagittarius).  Of all the days this week, this might be the best one for “getting things done,” and oddly it favors fire and air signs (though the Sun is in Pisces and applying, ultimately, to Neptune and Chiron).  If we zoom out and look at Saturday and Sunday together, we could argue that a (very loose) Fire Grand Trine is present.

Venus (Aquarius) is semi-square Chiron (Pisces), and Sun (Pisces) is semi-square Pluto (Capricorn).  This creates quite a push to “get things done,” and issues of healthcare (or education) and finances (Capricorn) are part of the mix.  Mercury (Aquarius) semi-sextiles Neptune (Pisces).  Fire and air signs may be favored, but Pisces and Capricorn clearly have a voice today.  And Mercury / Neptune tells us that (some) people will tend to wax poetic (if not grandiose).  No “Mars Out” higher order aspects are in play, so look to the earlier aspects this week as well as the Vesta Quadrinovile Juno aspect tomorrow (a skill involving exploring “how we have always done it” and trust & fidelity issues).

Tomorrow remains very similar, and these two days should be considered together for some important project.  (Possibly a home improvement project, but certainly an important one.)

Thursday February 3rd 2016

Thursday February 4th

Venus perfects a semi-sextile to Saturn early at 7:15 AM CST.  Moon becomes v/c (void of course) after perfecting a square to Jupiter at 4:04 AM CST and the moon stays void until entry into Capricorn at 6:45 PM CST.  Moon square Jupiter tends to lead us to overeat or overspend.  This is both a day in which we are cleaning up from Wednesday AND a very “metaphysical” day.

The early Venus Semi-Sextile Saturn aspect makes this feel like another workday, but even more than previously please do stick to routine and resist the temptation to follow the absurd or extreme.  You will see the wisdom (or folly) of your actions by evening.

Outer planet aspects include Uranus conjunct Vesta (a followup from Monday).  Mars Semisquare Hygeia brings in issues from Tuesday and give them a powerful sense of urgency.  But, the moon is void for most of the workday, and we find it difficult to accomplish certain tasks despite their pressing urgency.

Julie Demboski has an excellent description of the perfection of Uranus / Vesta:

“Today could be a dangerous day, and by dangerous I mean exciting, over-the-top, fulfilling–it’s the aftermath we have to be mindful of. The individuality urge is fired by the need to be original, to experiment, to be radical, to make chaos, revolution, or something entirely new and modern–and the Vestal influence can be both highly constructive, aligning our urges with our highest values or service to home and family, or can lead us to believe that our impulses and intellectual conclusions are sacred, not to be questioned or thwarted, and so effectively sending us on a monomaniacal tear. How do we tell the difference?”  We encourage you to read more.  [Click Here.]

February 1st 2016 (W06)

A glance at the Mystic Rectangles monthy “Mars Out” forecast shows several septile (triseptile) aspects of outer planets.  These aspects are subtle, but they mark this as a day of karma in which we best help ourselves by anonymously helping someone less fortunate than ourselves without expecting anything in return.

Pluto / Vesta are square, and we find a conflict between “doing things the way we have always done them” and the true sources of power present in power structures such as the police and intelligence agencies.  For some people, this is a time of very kinky sex (if you are into that kind of thing).  For anyone who is a “sex worker”: please be extra careful at this time.

Please keep in mind that we are still processing, and clearing out, the energy of the T-Square perfections of the past weekend (Friday / Sunday).

Some of what we said Sunday bears repeating here:

For some people, this is the kind of Sunday where, on Monday, you pretend to leave for work but go somewhere entirely different and hide for a day or week or year. (Maybe you “go out for cigarettes and never come back,” as was popular in the 1950’s and 1960’s.) Do keep in mind that “this too shall pass,” and “things” will become different. (Not “better” or “worse” but “different.”) But, again, this will be a critically important turning point for some people who choose to move into new circumstances.

While we are technically still in the “retrograde shadow,” in many ways moving past this final aspect of the sequence ends this particular sequence of dramas and opens the door for us to (finally!) move in new directions. But, in January of 2017 (when Mercury conunct Pluto perfects again), we may want to revisit our thoughts, notes, and decisions at this time.

Mars (in Scorpio) is septile the North Node, and this harkens to those willing to do the work to transform their lives, starting today.  I am especially speaking to anyone in a criminal occupation or group who is considering doing something like “Witness Relocation.”  Do it today, and never look back.  It will not be easy, but one day you will be grateful to yourself that you did.

For the rest of us, consider what big leap you need to make today or at the time of the New Moon (a week from today).  That NM has a Double Yod Key (DYK), and everyone will face a GROUP of important decisions at that time.  (For more about 2016 New Moons, click here.)

We cannot say it better about today and the rest of this week:  “Waning SCORPIO MOON today and tomorrow is excellent for purging and clearing anyway…”  (Source: Melanies Astro News; see, also: Melanies Astro News)

Finally, we note that the upcoming Aquarius New Moon on February 8th marks the beginning of the Chinese New Year and the beginning of the related festivities. (See, also: this article from the Telegraph.)

 

Sun Quincunx Vesta 2015-10-23 (Hele) after entry to Scorpio

Sun Quincunx Vesta 2015-10-23 (Hele) after entry to Scorpio

Shortly after entry into Scorpio on October 23rd, Sun forms a quincunx (150 degree aspect) with Vesta.  A Hele pattern is also present.  Here is the chart for the perfection of the aspect, filtered for the Hele pattern:

2015-10-23 Sun Quincunx Vesta

Factions and cliques polarize at this time and may make efforts that are both extreme and underhanded but ineffective.  This results in bad feelings and anger but does not improve the position of any particular group significantly (or, if it initially appears significant, then it does not last).

Expect to see poor decision making at this time that may be driven by emotions (particularly anger) related to traditions.

2015-09-06 Thor’s Hammer

A Thor’s Hammer pattern involving Hygeia (health and healthcare issues), Vesta (traditions), and Pluto (sex, birth, death, rebirth, taxes, police, intelligence agencies and someone else’s money) begins Sunday, September 6, 2015 and lasts at least through Thursday, September 10th.  Expect to see issues arise involving healthcare, bureaucracies (e.g. health insurance companies), and government agencies.  Healthcare may rise again as a critically important political issue.  Chances are good you will see something about this in your personal life.

Here is the chart for the beginning of the pattern:

2015-09-06 Thor's Hammer

[Click Image to Enlarge]

During this week, we will also see Sun square Pallas perfect on September 8th.  By the weekend, we will see Sun opposite Chiron perfect on September 12th, which will bring some of these issues into an unavoidable confrontation.  As we always say, avoid rash actions (and rash people) and focus your energies into productive accomplishments.

We also note the formation of Hele patterns.  This tells us that strong alliances will emerge from this conflict, some of them long lasting.  Polarization of attitudes is likely, and compromise is unlikely.

We recommend that you pick your friends carefully and consider whether your conflicts will result in anything productive or long lasting.

This may be a window where “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” is the WRONG strategy.  Doing it “that way because we have always done it that way” will probably NOT be the write answer.  Consider the possibility of innovation.

2015-07-22 Mercury Trine Saturn

Thought you were done with the job on Tuesday?  Not so.  Mercury Trine Saturn tells you have more work to do, and you are facing a deadline.  Worse yet, you are torn between work (Saturn) and play (Jupiter) by a Thor’s Hammer with Vesta (traditions usually, but sometimes kinky sex) at its apex.

All work and no play… …but Venus into Virgo still says work, Work, WORK!  Try to decide without losing your temper; focus that energy into something productive whether it is work or play or some mix of both.

Here is the chart:

New Moon (Cancer) 2015-07-15 T-Square and Grand Trine

New Moon (Cancer) 2015-07-15 T-Square and Grand Trine

The New Moon (NM) of July 15, 2015 follows the culmination of a Mars / Pluto opposition (typically occurs about once every two years) and precedes a Mercury / Mars conjunction (typically a once a year event unless a Mercury Retrograde makes it happen three times).  What does that mean?

Let us clarify: one of those tends to make people really angry and do things they sometimes regret later.  The other tends to make people really angry and say things they regret later.  BOTH of them are happening TOGETHER.  (And they set the stage to pull the trigger on the upcoming Blue Moon.)

Solar Fire shows a T-Square pattern with Vesta in a square relationship to both Mars and Pluto, but really the Vesta / Uranus midpoint more precisely squares them.  (Vesta tends to be tradition but can be perverse sex, Uranus tends to be surprises and revolutions and can also be perverse sex.)  While the NM itself seems relatively benevolent, it will likely occur as part of an activating event that may precipitate potential violence, revolution of dangerous events at or near this time.  (Or, it COULD be really, Really, REALLY good sex.  Take your pick.)

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

New Moon 2015-07-15 T-Square

[Click Image to Enlarge]

A Grand Trine (grand fire trine) involving Vesta, Hygeia, and Pallas is in play.  Since these are asteroids, their effects may not be as obvious, and the opportunities may not be as obvious.  To those who do see and seize them, these may involve “battlefield promotions.”  (These may be either literal or symbolic.)

Notice, also, the ABSENCE of air and the PREPONDERANCE of water.  People are *NOT* thinking during this time; they are “emoting.”

Here is the (same) chart (filtered to show the Grand Trine):

New Moon 2015-07-15 Grand Trine

[Click Image to Enlarge]

As noted previously, this NM occurs between two full moons in the same month, the second one being a blue moon.

We also note the presence of a number of Huber Learning Trinagles.  Here are two of the several charts:

New Moon 2015-07-15 HLT1

New Moon 2015-07-15 HLT3

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that Pallas participates in both of these HLT’s as well as the Grand Trine.  We suspect that this indicates a strong “Pallas” influence in this NM.

Astrology of 2015-01-09 Taking Sides and Making Decisions

We normally think of a Virgo moon as being relatively benevolent.  But, this day is filled with the Quincunx (aka Inconjunct), and misunderstandings abound.  January of 2015 is rich in patterns, and in this post we are singling out two for analysis.

First, we note that the day is characterized by a Hele (this chart is set at a time chosen by Solar Fire 8 for the beginning on the Hele, but the Hele itself covers roughly a 24 hour period, so the ascendant is not particularly meaningful here):

2015-01-09 Hele

[Click Image to Enlarge]

As we have discussed before, the Hele appears to be a polarizing pattern, encouraging people to choose one of two sides.  (e.g. “police” v. “minorities”)  In the case of this Hele, one side is relatively mainstream or traditional or “the way things have always been.”  This is the Sun/Moon trine (with Vesta in the mix).  The other side is a combination of trust v. distrust (Juno) and surprises (Uranus) with, paradoxically, a tendency to keep things the way they always have been (South Node).  That is, the alternate leg involves issues of trust v. mistrust along with surprises (and possibly innovations).

While the Moon / Juno (internal self and trust issues) side of this Hele is in harmony, the Sun (outer self and authority figures) / Uranus (surprises, explosions, revolutions, insights) is not in harmony.

A hele, by itself, does not necessarily spark action.  But this day also contains a focused yod.  We note that, in addition to requiring a decision and likely action, the focused yod also likely contains possible answers to the questions posed by the Hele:

2015-01-09 Focused Yod

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This focused yod contains Chiron / Juno as one leg and Chiron / North Node as the other.  The choice is between continuing to be caught in issues of trust and distrust, probably mired in them, or doing the hard work necessary to move forward.  With Juno in Leo, we can tell that a great deal of ego is involved and “letting go” just is not going to come very easily.  And the North Node is in Libra and focuses on relationship issues and what some call “give and take.”  The moon provides a possible anwser as it has earlier opposed Chiron and offered answers in the form of work and play (Virgo = work, Pisces = Play) combined with a need to become highly organized in order to move forward necessary healing.

We will close this post by saying that today signifies the work to be done but does not show that the problems are solved.  Today’s messages will be ones of what needs to be done, and what can be done, instead of any final resolution.

Pay attention to what signs and ideas come your way.

One last thing: I check the search engine terms for this site.  One of you ran a search for “astraea paris october eclipse.”  I went back and checked my post on that eclipse, the most recent solar eclipse, and indeed an astraea line is dead center on Paris at the time of that eclipse.  (Thanks to whoever ran the search.)

Again: Pay attention to what signs and ideas come your way.
