2020-04-30 : Sun septile North Node (Rahu); Venus biquintile Pluto; Vesta septile Eris; Destiny has arrived for millions

2020-04-30 : Sun septile North Node (Rahu); Venus biquintile Pluto; Vesta septile Eris; Destiny has arrived for millions.

Summary

Days like this are difficult to write for.  That is not because the astrology does not speak.  It does speak.  Unfortunately, it tells us what we already know.  This will be an exercise, therefore, in what some call “confirmation bias.”  But, we can only read what we are given.

Unlike a diplomat or seasoned “sales executive,” we present the bad news first.  The bad news is this: Vesta forms a septile with Astraea.  We interpret that combination thus: traditions (Vesta) enter into a “karmic” relationship (that can produce insights from “lessons learned”) with Eris, the goddess of Discord (and retribution)Tara Greene interprets Vesta to be related to “inVESTments.”  (“VENUS turns RETROGRADE conjunct VESTA the asteroid GODDESS of in VESTments, You can’t make this shit up, “)  JBuss describes the Septile as an aspect of “timing”:  “The Seventh Harmonic is about Stillness in Readiness for Action, very Aikido-like.  I simplify interpretation of the Septile as Timing.

An alternative interpretation to mine, and NOT inconsistent with mine (i.e. both things could be true), is that Investments are meeting Discord in a manner related to timing.  Could this be the day that sets the stage for what comes next when certain businesses open for customers again, restaurants and cinemas and such.  The best that we can hope for is that most of the businesses are saved and we do NOT have a second wave.  But almost everyone observing, adults (and maybe teenagers) of sound mind & body, knows that SOMEthing will come out of this.  We just do not know what.

And given this “Vesta septile Eris” aspect perfecting today, it does not sound “encouraging.”

That’s the bad news, and nobody needs astrology to draw this conclusion.

One more time, the BEST that we can hope for is some sense of “normal.” 

(But the “mid-term grades” may not be so good.)

Now for the rest of the story:

  • Sun septile North Node: another confirmation of this idea of “fate” being in play here; many of us will desperately try to control what cannot be controlled.
  • Mercury biseptile Mars: the potential for violence continues though violent words are more likely than violent acts; as you watch events unfold, ask yourself this: how could this have been handled differently (actually, I think that the conduct of most people has been exemplary)
  • Venus quincunx Neptune : the person I consider to have been my primary teacher in astrology (several of those, but I spent more time with one than all others combined) HATED the quincunx.  I recall him saying “it is worse than the squares.”  It is the aspect of false hopes and miscommunicationsThough Neptune is considered a “higher octave of Venus,” in this case they simply have nothing in common whatsoever.
  • Venus biquintile Pluto: Financial markets, and their performance, will be a central issue at this time; an important insight can be had from today.
  • Ceres trine North Node: supply chains appear to start moving again.

“Oddly, today is a “feel good” kind of day (Moon in Leo squares Sun in Taurus) where we feel a sense of relief that “things” are starting to move again.  But, at the same time, we are all quite apprehensive about the risks & dangers that face us.  If you are “at risk” at all, I exhort you to stay home and stay safe and practice the best practices you can with regard to protecting yourself (and your family) from this virus.

As we said in the beginning: no astrology needed to produce these predictions.

But, sometimes, that is what we are given from astrology: the obvious.

2020-04-29 : Moon in Cancer moves void then into Leo; Sun biseptile Jupiter; Higher order Mercury aspects

2020-04-29 : Moon in Cancer moves void then into Leo; Sun biseptile Jupiter; Higher order Mercury aspects

Summary

Today is effectively two days compacted into one, and arguable three.  Before 2:27 PM CDT, Moon is in Cancer and has a number of statements to make.  Moon in Cancer is the strongest possible position for the Moon, so we need to pay attention.  Chances are good that we will have some kind of shift involving the petroleum industry.

But after the void, things go sideways.  Some prosper and some do not.

Moon enters Leo, and stays in “too early to tell” (as the horary practitioners call the early degrees of a sign) through the end of the day (midnight).

Mercury (Helio) forms seven (7) aspects.  Five are in the novile and undecile family (moments of brief but intense insight), one is a quintile to Hygeia (indicating a possible breakthrough in healthcare), and one is a square to Jupiter.  What does a heliocentric square to Jupiter by Mercury mean?  We are not certain, but we will interpret it thus: a conflict exists between transportation / communications (on one hand) and the more expansive uses of governmental power, including universities (and “experts”), law and the legal system, and international affairs (especially international travel).  The mercurial side wants to “get things done” while the Jupiter side wants “higher order thought” in play.  Both are right and both are wrong today.  In the U.S., this likely manifests with the ongoing conflicts of whether or not to “re-open” the U.S. as well as questions as to whether or not that will lead to a second wave.”

In this article, J Buss indicates that the septile (family) is the most important aspect (family of aspects).  While I have heard it described elsewhere as powerful insights related to “karma,” J Buss argues that it is about timing.  The two viewpoints can co-exist.  Arguably, they should co-exist.

Here is an excerpt of the article from J Buss:

I simplify interpretation of the Septile as Timing. Think about that Prophesy that you’d meet your Soulmate in the Produce Department. Unless your Soulmate works there, your Chances of meeting them are pretty slim if you don’t also know What Time You Need to Be There! Of course it’d be Intuitive, but the “Left” Brain will understand what we mean.

Obscure humor about produce aside, today has Sun biseptile Jupiter.  We think this could be a subtle, but important, turning point in terms of “timing” (particularly as it applies to the Covid19 pandemic).  This is especially true given the many high order Mercury (helio) transits.

Pallas enters Aquarius, and important actions will soon be taken regarding ourselves as a collective.  Chiron trine Astraea offers some important solutions involving both healthcare and law & legal.

  • Moon v/c in Cancer at 2:27 PM Central (1427 CDT) 
  • Moon enters Leo at 8:06 PM Central (2006 CDT) 
  • Moon quintile Sun
  • Moon binovile Sun
  • Moon trine Neptune
  • Moon opposite Pluto
  • Sun biseptile Jupiter
  • Mercury square Jupiter (Helio)
  • Mercury triseptile Juno
  • Mercury semisquare Venus
  • Pallas enters Aquarius
  • Chiron trine Astraea

2020-04-28 : Expect disruptions to legal systems & supply chains; take care of detailed paperwork such as filing taxes

Expect disruptions to legal systems & Supply chains; take care of detailed paperwork such as filing taxes

Summary

  • Legal upsets continue as Uranus squares Astraea (felt as far back as last week) at 1:52 PM (1352 CDT); Helio Venus squares Jupiter, a confirmation of this turmoil in legal areas and legal systems (courts) but (Tropical, Geocentric) Moon quadrinoviles Jupiter at 1:22 AM (0122 CDT) to provide some “Aha!” moments on how to solve these problems *IF* people pay attention to these fleeting ideas; a key point: the insight comes first, telling us to “get ahead of the problem”; plan (and act) accordingly
  • Vesta sesquiquadrate Pallas brings a sense of urgency to put new ideas (Pallas) into practice regarding old traditions (and Tara Greene says that Vesta governs investments as well, obviously along with Venus)
  • Astraea (law and legal) perfects a biseptile to Eris (discord & chaos) at 2:45 PM (1445 CDT) bringing important lessons (karmic lessons) on how to handle similar sources of chaos in legal areas in the future
  • Mars semisextile Neptune at 3:48 PM (1548 CDT); watch out for those all to slick “traveling salesmen” types; if it sounds too good to be true, it is
  • Mercury square Saturn at 12:27 PM (1227 CDT) gives many of us the focus to take care of certain detailed matters.  For many people, this is a GREAT time to do your taxes or take care of detailed accounting issues; Mercury squares Pallas at 1:53 AM (0153 CDT) and that gives us the ideas and insights that we do need to take care of these matters (and maybe some smart ideas regarding how to make this happen); as an aside: DO NOT wait until the next Mercury retrograde to get on top of this; you will feel the pain if you do
  • Helio: Mars trines Uranus at 4:30 AM (0430 CDT) giving some people the insights and ability to take action to solve certain problems (probably involving finance or supply chains)
  • Mercury semisextile Ceres at 6:54 AM (0654 CDT) brings relief to certain supply chain issues

2020-04-27 : Moon moves into Cancer; Mercury moves into Taurus; Sun BiSeptile Pluto; Uranus Septile Vesta

2020-04-27 : Moon moves into Cancer; Mercury moves into Taurus; Sun BiSeptile Pluto; Uranus Septile Vesta

  • Moon septiles Sun before Noon: a minor karmic lesson that COULD yield an insight
  • Moon moves into Cancer: a break for water and earth signs
  • Mercury moves into Taurus: communications become more deliberate and transportation slows; Mercury is quite active and criminality and deception could be a problem
  • Uranus Septile Vesta: status quo & traditions are challenged today
  • Sun BiSeptile Pluto brings karmic lessons that can be an “Aha!” moment

Summary

We begin by noting that the Moon septiles the Sun slightly past 11 AM CDT (1100 Central), sextiles Mercury at 11:58 AM (1158 CDT), and is void for half an hour until it enters its home, Cancer.  Moon remains in the early degrees that horary practitioners call “too early to tell” for the afternoon and into the evening.

Outers are mostly quiet.  The most significant event with outers involves Uranus (aka Prometheus) forming a septile with Vesta in the helio (Sun centered) version.  This COULD imply yet another disruption in traditions (including “but it’s how we have always done things”) that can lead more insightful observers to a possible “Aha!” moment.  This perfects at 9:49 PM Central (2149 CDT), but, at a minimum, we have felt it all day and surely since at least a week ago (or more).

By far, Mercury is the most active object, moving into Taurus (tropical, geocentric) and making a total three aspects from that vantage point and SEVEN (7) from the heliocentric (Sun centered rather than Earth centered) vantage pointThe big issues today involve transportation and communication and possibly theft or deceit or variations on criminality.  Helio also shows Mercury forming TWO BiNoviles, so expect insights and Aha! moments at those times.

Sun biseptile Pluto brings more “Aha!” moments, but these may be “karmic” as is typically true with septile family aspects.  Pay your dues, if you must, and learn the lesson and move on.

Lunar aspects are mostly ordinary but an early morning biquintile to Saturn COULD yield an “Aha!” moment on how to do ordinary, practical, “day to day” tasks a little better.  In the evening, a sesquiquadrate (SSQ) with Mars brings an annoyance or sense of urgency about some matter or both.

2020-04-26 : Sun conjunct Uranus forms T-Square with Saturn & Astraea

2020-04-26 : Sun conjunct Uranus forms T-Square with Saturn & Astraea

Summary

Do not think, even for a moment, that the weirdness of the past few days is over.  We will have “fun” again, but the disruptions continue for now.

Sun conjunct Uranus (both in early Taurus) has been the subject of frequent chatter.  It happens once a year, every year, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.  That aspect has a reputation for “stirring things up,” but it tends to be a “wake up call” for those with the eyes (or ears) to see (or hear) that.  And, always, a few smart people will profit from the events.

At this time, Saturn (Aquarius) opposes Astraea (Leo), meaning that (non-legal) authority (probably the financial services industry) is in opposition to law and legal authority (and the courts).  Squaring both are the conjoined Sun / Uranus combination.  Attorneys at law are likely working overtime this weekend.

Heliocentric Marsout, something new (to us) that we are exploring, shows Mars square Chiron.  Helio charts do have different interpretations, but we will risk applying a standard one: Mars (aggression, violence, sometimes police or military) is in conflict with Chiron (the wounded healer).  Expect conflicts with healthcare (and educational institutions) to continue, maybe peaking today (for now).  A serious risk might be that of violence as people who have been harmed fail to obtain justice and, consequently, “take matters into their own hands.”

Sunout aspects include several with Mercury and novile family aspects with both Mercury and VenusExpect “Aha!” moments with regard to routine tasks, chores, communication, and transportation.  If the Sun / Uranus does not derail you, this might be the time to explore home improvements or decorations.

Helio Venus trines Ceres bringing hope regarding improved supply chains in certain areas.  (Is the shortage of toilet paper and bread over?)  Also Helio, Mercury movies into Aries, finally completely liberating Mercury from a difficult place.  Communications and transportation problems should begin to clear (once we are past any Sun / Uranus weirdness).

Moon forms sesquiquadrates (SSQs) with Jupiter and Saturn, adding either minor annoyances or a sense of urgency or both to the earlier part of the day.  A number of SSQs are in play now, so these annoyances (or sense of urgency) are simply part of the picture.  As is true with so many things, they will clear out before long.

We are dropping the Table of Aspects and Time Maps  for now because (1) they are duplicative, (2) they are a bit more work that does not seem to add much, and (3) we can add them back if someone really needs them.

2020-04-24 : Mars Sesquiquadrates North Node; Moon squares Mars; Sun Semisquare Neptune

2020-04-24 : Mars Sesquiquadrates North Node; Moon squares Mars; Sun Semisquare Neptune

Summary

As we said yesterday: Mars sesquiquadrates North Node, and all hell breaks loose.  That’s the kind of talk that is dangerous for an astrologer to say.  Sometimes we get things wrong, and then we have egg on our face.  But, I am saying it.  Mars CAN be helpful, but it is known as the “Lesser Malefic” for good reason: it usually leads to violence, physical violence.  An only slightly higher form has it leading to hurtful words, the kind that sometimes end a relationship.  Athletes (and other martians, such as police) can sometimes channel this into something beneficial.

The sesquiquadrate aspect itself is, effectively, martian in nature and NOT usually any high form.  The North Node, also known as “Ketu” or the “Dragon’s Head,” is about “working through karma.  The vedic astrologers think this is good because we can “learn lessons.”  Maybe so, but those “lessons” are invariably unpleasant as hell at the time.

All of this is exacerbated by the Moon (in Taurus) which squares Mars (in Aquarius) and sets up a hard aspects pattern with the nodes.  (We might revise this entry later to examine this pattern more closely.)

No other outers make aspects, making this one more pronounced in its effect.

Sun semisquare Neptune perfects about four hours later, adding confusion to the mess (but possibly empowering creatives, such as poets and photographers, to derive creative works from these difficult situations).

Mercury is applying to a square to Pluto, which stations retrograde tomorrow.  For all practical purposes, Pluto can be treated as retrograde.  The Mercury / Pluto square is yet another indicator of a “difficult,” likely dangerous, day.  Avoid dangerous people, places, and things on this date.

Mercury forms a septile to Hygeia, more karma but also the potential to learn important insights. Sun noviles Hygeia, confirming the message of Mercury (or is it the other way around?).  Sun triseptiles Juno, leaving me wondering if we are going to see a female shooter on this date.  On the other hand, a female relative may be the person who provides a key insight to solving the problem.

Listen close: kind words to others today, people!  You have no idea what someone else is going through or how fragile or how dangerous they are.

2020-04-23 : Ceres into Pisces; Mars BiNovile Uranus; Neptune Sesquiquadrate Astraea

Summary

Today is full of glitches, but it also has opportunities to solve problems.  Do that today.  Tomorrow, Mars sesquiquadrates the North Node (Rahu, the Dragon’s Head) and all Hell breaks loose for some, maybe many, of us.  And Saturday, Pluto stations retrograde, making things worse.

Fix everything you can today; tomorrow might be too late.

Marsout

[Click image to enlarge; opens in new tab]

Outers are the most interesting part of the day although the entire day is active.  Ceres enters Pisces.  This is a mixed bag.  The “Grain Goddess” (that likely governs supply chains and markets in the modern world) has moved into Pisces, possibly good for healing issues but also introducing confusion into our supply chains and marketplaces.  (Given the events of the Pandemic so far, it “feels” like she has been there for a month.)  Bottom line: expect more weirdness in these areas.  (Along with humorous songs and videos and photographs)

Criminality (especially involving theft by misdirection) may become a problem at this time.  (“That truck was supposed to be sent to Las Vegas,” but it was routed elsewhere and “disappeared.”  If it is ever found, the missing food or pharmaceuticals are long gone.)

Mars binoviles Uranus, giving some of us smart ideas about how to take action more effectively. As is true with all Mars / Uranus aspects, a “low side” exists and it almost always involves “accidents” (and failure to plan).  Even there, the possibility of ingenious ideas emerges.

Neptune sesquiquadrate Astraea introduces confusion into legal settings and legal issues.  Those working in these areas should expect smokescreens, attempted cover-ups, and misdirection.  Others will be at risk of having their misdeeds (finally!) uncovered.  These are all low to mid forms.  The high forms will have legal documents that, oddly, read like poetry and even actual poetry or art about the legal system.  GREAT times for television shows about the law and law firms (but not necessarily so much for procedural crime dramas that focus on the police to the exclusion of the attorneys).

We leave the other aspects uninterpreted as an “exercise” for those wishing to dive into them.

Sunout

[Click image to enlarge; opens in new tab]

Sunout aspects, the kind most astrologers read, show Mercury activity dominating the day, meaning that issues of transportation and communication become important.  (How this fits with the confusion of Ceres in Pisces remains an open question.)

The four Mercury aspects are these:

  • Mercury BiNovile Saturn (a smart solution to properly processing details)
  • Mercury BiSeptile Astraea (legal issues and solutions to them)
  • Mercury Septile Vesta (how we have always done things)
  • Mercury Septile Ceres (those supply chain questions, again)

This is yet another day where the battle cries of “but we have always done it this way” and “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” are simply NOT the right answer.  Places where the system is broken leap out like a walrus covered in Hunter’s Orange.  Holes in the system practically glow incandescent.

Do not be stupid: fix it!

And, just because you develop a smart solution to processing details does not mean that you can completely ignore them.  That is also folly.  Followup checks and tests are needed today.  We cannot afford to have milk or produce or other food destroyed simply because our supply chains are not equipped to handle the problems.  (And this applies to other matters as well.)

Time to fix it, make certain it is fixed, and move forward. 

Tomorrow, “things” become different.

Moonout

[Click image to enlarge; opens in a new tab]

The core issues of the day have been covered.  The moon forms biseptile aspects to Jupiter and Pluto, further emphasizing the “karmic” and “lessons learned” aspects of the day along with the possibility of breakthrough ideas.

Moon also forms a novile aspect to Venus and binovile aspect to Mars, again emphasizing windows of insight that can become windows of opportunity for those inclined to see those.  As we always say with regard to this: keep a notepad handy.  Today’s Martian emphasis might mean that you need to seize the moment and take action, also, when the window presents itself.

Sun and Moon both remain in Taurus though the New Moon perfected late yesterday.  While this tends to bode well for art, love, harmony, and finances, some people may not be willing to budge from their positions.  This does not bode well for problems in the system that the “we have always done it that way” crowd do not wish to recognize.

2020-04-20 : Moon enters Aries & Conjuncts Chiron; Venus conjunct Hygeia; Juno opposes Black Moon Lilth

April 20th of 2020

Numerologists over the internet are noting this date: 2020-04-20, but we will only note that and not address it further.

Today is Hitler’s Birthday, his 131st birthday.  Taurus produced both Hitler and George Takei.   Regardless of your sun sign, but especially if you are a Taurus, ask this question: which are you?

(“Neither” is an acceptable answer if you beat your own drum.)

Today is also “420 Day.”  We are not an advocate of illegal activity, but do advocate for decriminalization (at a minimum) of the ancient herb and complete legalization for medical use authorized by prescription from a licensed healthcare provide.  If you do partake, please do not drive under the influence.

Summary

This post comes late, most of the aspects in hindsight.  We are “tuning” our processes, and hope to have timely delivery of material.  But, then again, this *IS* the “Irregular Oracle,” so you are hereby notified that not all “forecasts” are timely.  (If we were paid a suitable amount of money, that could change.  But, for now, it is a labor of love and not a “day job.”

  1. Moon enters Aries in the early morning hours and conjuncts Chiron a bit later.  Emotions and “wounded healer” issues bubble to the surface, but that is not a secret with protests regarding social distancing and “stay at home” (or “shelter in place”) orders.  Even more to the point: physicians’ practices that keep many patients out of the hospital are becoming financially illiquid (out of cash; unable to pay employees or buy supplies) and these “wounded healers” are needed to keep the healthcare system from collapsing.
  2. Juno opposes Black Moon Lilith this evening.  To listen to proponents of BML, we would come to believe that all women want to embrace the wild demon woman inside.  That even sounds appealing in some ways.  But the more practical ladies (Juno) are up in arms, angry and complaining that it is not just males that are unhappy with the kind of thing that BML represents.
    No one can win in this battle, but the lines are drawn.
    In practical terms, BML represents “the other woman,” and Juno represents angry wives, daughters, and sisters who are not about to tolerate “the other woman.”  Don’t be surprised in we have female on female violence tonight, they kind of thing where an angry wife does what we expect an unhappy husband to do: shoot someone.  (Or send “marijuana brownies” that are also laced with white oleander.)
    (As an aside, we noticed now that Juno (wife / daughter / sister) forms a favorable aspect with Astraea (law and legal).  Wife / daughter CAN WIN here; she has a lawyer in her pocket (likely a female lawyer, Astraea) who can make things “uncomfortable” for “the other woman.”
  3. Venus joins Hygeia amplifies the Moon conjunct Chiron lessons.  Just in case we missed it, Venus / Hygeia makes certain that we do not.  The word is out on certain issues, and Venus / Hygeia make certain that it is shouted.

2020-04-18 and 2020-04-19 Semisquares; Moon Conjunct Neptune; Sun moves into Taurus; Kite and Square Key continue

2020-04-18 and 2020-04-19 Semisquares; Moon Conjunct Neptune; Sun moves into Taurus; Kite and Square Key continue

Summary

The Piscean Moon dampens the frustrations of the moment reminding us to take time off.  We do feel some urgency regarding certain matters, and tending to them is important, but with the Sun void until it moves into Taurus we may not be able to accomplish all of the things we desire.

The Kite and Square Key continue from yesterday, April 17th.  This means we do have opportunities (Kite) and, paradoxically, should seize certain ones.  Missteps become lessons.  Learn the lesson (Square Key) and do something different next time if that is possible.

Somewhere in here, if it is possible, have a little fun this weekend.

We include maps at the end of this post.

Daypages (Sunout only)

We present Sunout pages (only) for April 18th and April 19th because they cover most of what is important.  The lunar conjunction to Neptune early Sunday morning is covered later.

Interpretations

We have semisquares coming and going over the course of the weekend.  They nudge us into action while the Piscean Moon wants to play.  You have to decide for yourself what course of action is best, likely a carefully chosen balanced mix of the two.

April 18th: Mercury sextile Venus yields pleasant communications.  If this is “date night” for some then late night conversations are pleasant and hopeful.  Enjoy the moment.  Mars trine Hegeia affects all of us, giving us even stronger motives to take care of matters that involve health and healthcare.  Some disputes COULD break out related to this, but most people will work together to “get things done.”  Mercury BiNovile the North Node (and now out of Pisces) gives us an insight on how we might solve a nagging problem, maybe even an important one.

April 19th For others, worker bees up late, Mercury quintile Saturn yields “Aha!” moments about how to do things better.  Latch onto that, but know that you might adjust early next week after Sun has moved into Taurus and out of the “too early to tell” period.  Sun forms a Novile before moving into Taurus, giving us a good idea but it will need a little tuning.  Stick with it, adjust it, and chances are good that you will like the results.

Moon conjunct Neptune

We present the Moon conjunct Neptune chart, NOT a major chart but a milestone along the way this weekend.  We have filtered it for the Kite mentioned in our April 17th post (this past Friday).

Nothing life or death in this chart unless you do something foolish like driving or operating heavy equipment or power tools under the influence of alcohol or drugs.  PLEASE use this window for “down time,” best for sleep and dreams.  You will like yourself better that way, and many of us need the rest.

An opportunity is hidden here, the same one we mentioned Friday about talking things out with someone important to you and solving whatever problems you can together.  But the window is closing.  By early next week, “things” will be different.

2020-04-17 Moon into Pisces; Mercury opposite Juno; Kite; Square Key

2020-04-17 Moon into Pisces; Mercury opposite Juno; Kite; Square Key

Summary

Today is mostly a quiet day for most people with important opportunities that are easily missed.  This forecast is being written during the Moon v/c in Aquarius after Moon perfects a conjunction to Ceres (food and prosperity, and arguably supply chains).  The opportunity involves conversations and short trips revolving about issues of trust.  with Chiron four (4) degrees away from Mercury, some of these conversations may be “painful” but the healing that results can be cathartic.  (India and Pakistan: are you listening to this?  Important conversations about issues of trust!)

Key aspects and patterns for Friday April 17, 2020

  • After a void in Aquarius, Moon moves into Pisces at 1329 CDT (1:29 PM Central Time)
  • Mercury (Aries) opposes Juno (Libra)
  • A kite (opportunity, or possibly opportunities) is present: Juno (Libra) is part of a grand air trine including (a) Vesta at 10 Gemini (along with Venus at 11, Hygeia at 12) and (b) Mars at 12 Aquarius; Mercury opposing Vesta completes the kite
  • A “Square Key” (two interlaced Huber Learning Triangles that share a common quincunx)
  • Sun perfects a square to Pallas Athena (the armored warrior goddess), the third of a series of three square the Sun (Aries) makes to planets (and an asteroid) in Capricorn (Pluto, Jupiter, and Pallas Athena).  Early next week the Sun (in Taurus) will make one of its annual squares to Saturn (now in early Aquarius) to be followed later by squares to Mars and Ceres.
  • Maps: (1) USA Map shows heavy activation in Western Mississippi and region that includes both Memphis and Jackson (to be expected after recent tornadoes and (2) crossings and a descendant line show activation along the India / Pakistan border.  Events at these regions could be “unstable” today.

The message here is clear: lance the boilClear away the anger and debris now or you will find it far more challenging at some later date, likely during a Mercury retrograde (when Mercury, and others, will force the issue you are avoiding).  Get it done, now, and move forward.

With Venus and Hygeia (health and healthcare) so close, we have further confirmation that this focuses on some kind of healing: emotional for some, physical for others, and both for still yet others.

The Huber Learning Triangles confirm that this is a day about lessons learned.  Clearing the decks now may even “seem” like a bad idea.  But, later, you will find out that  you did the right thing if you took care of business today.

And, this particular configuration of Huber Learning Triangles tells us that lawsuits can emerge from wrong turns today.  Uranus (upsets and surprises) with the South Node (“how we have always done things” and the “done fix it if it ain’t broke” mentality) forms one of the two trines in the Square Key while Astraea (law, legal, and lawsuits) forms the other trine with Chiron, the Wounded Healer.  Best to “fix” things today if at all possible.

We offer the Sunout daypage without explanation beyond the summary in the previous paragraphs EXCEPT to note that Venus is sesquiquadrate Jupiter, amplifying the urgency of clearing away this matter, or matters, today.

2020-04-12 : Moon void of course most of the day then enters Capricorn; Mercury squares the Nodes

Summary for April 12, 2020

The key take-away for today is this: much of the day is spent with Moon void-of-course in Sagittarius. Even so, outers (planets, asteroids, “calculated points”) are active and have messages for us. Maybe the most important one is that Mercury squares the nodes, only a few days after leaving Pisces (NOT a good position for transiting Mercury although it can produce poets and musicians in a natal chart).
Mercury squaring the nodes tells us of a shift, a “karmic” shift, and we need pay close attention to the messages that come to us today. In the end, some information may be missing, and projects might need to be redone, but the messages are important nevertheless. Short trips and errands, and the events that happen on them, may also reveal important information to us. Keep your eyes open.

Daypages

Marsout

Early morning hours (@ 0451 CDT), before Moon moves v/c, finds Pallas (and asteroid) trine Sedna (an outer planet object whose status is in question but probably is a dwarf planet). Pallas has an orbital period of 4.62 Earth years while Sedna has one of over 11,000 years. This trine is not particularly rare but also not particularly common, with two trines occurring within each 4.62 year orbit.
Pallas Athena is a warrior goddess, similar to Mars in some ways but reputed in mythology to have sprang fully formed, with armor, from her father’s head. (Zeus, also known as Jupiter, was her father.)
So, what does this mean? Sedna is a sea goddess, and Pallas a warrior goddess. No doubt they do not give up their secrets easily, but we think something important involving shipping and the security of ocean-going vessels will occur today.


Mars biquintiles the North Node shortly after (0657 CDT, 6:57 am) the Moon / Sun trine, and the beginning of the void. What does that mean? We are not certain, but we think that, for certain people, a break-through idea might present itself regarding an important problem. Action is necessary, keeping in mind that it might have to be re-done or tuned later. Proceeding carefully, take action despite the void.
Pallas trines Hygeia, (11:05 am CDT) and issues of healthcare and trust come to the forefront. My guess is that this might involve protective gear (aka “PPE”) and healthcare providers needing to be able to trust the supply chains and non-clinical managers who should be providing the protective gear.
Uranus undeciile Vesta brings a subtle upset to certain traditionalists who MIGHT can learn a lesson from the event, IF they are paying attention.
AFTER the Moon moves into Captricon, Vesta sextiles Black Moon Lillith. Per Darkstar Astrology, the “Dark Goddess archetype as a whole is associated with sex, death, obsession, addiction, transformation, resurrection, magic, the occult and the taboo.” While Vesta is primarily concerned with traditions, it also represents prostitution (or sexual favors or ?). With these two in sextile, all bets are off, but be certain that this is another hot night for “romance” for certain people.

Sunout

[Click to Enlarge]

This day has a number of undecile family aspects in it; we will not interpret those. Other aspects were previously discussed in Marsout leaving: (1) Mercury square the Nodes and (2) Sun semisquare Vesta.

We mentioned Mercury square the Nodes previously, and it is likely the most important aspect of the day, the “mover” that activates all the other aspects.
Sun semisquare Vesta implies that certain attributes of the Lilith / Vesta sextile might have a coercive quality to it, or, at best, a sense of urgency, as in “quick, they’ll be back soon!” Alternatively, the kids might wake up at a rather inconvenient time.

Moonout + SunMoon

These are complicated and numerous; we will leave the interpretation for another. The Sun / Moon trine is a pleasant way to start the void.
