2020-05-02 : A breakthrough day for athletes, artists, accountants, and anyone working with any kind of earth

2020-05-02 : A breakthrough day for athletes, artists, accountants, and anyone working with any kind of earth

Summary

Do not let this day slip away.  You will have insights about how to do things better and the energy to get things done.  Do them.  Make things happen.  (Days like this one are incredibly rare.)

Interpretations

Today is an interesting day, genuinely different from most other days.

Here is what leaps out: this is one of the most creative days to come along in a long time, but it is a rather specific kind of “creative.”  Whatever it is, it is related to earth.

Variations: sculptors can have a breakthrough day today, producing some of their best work.  But this is not simply sculpting of clay or marble.  Bodybuilders, and other athletes, can have breakthroughs as well.  But do not think in terms of simply a “really good workout.”  This is a day about having the kind of “Aha!” moment that produces entirely new methods of training.  Even a small change in the sequence of the workout might produce the breakthrough.  This can be martial arts, weight training, running, yoga, pilates, conventional sports or anything similar.

Bottom line: amazing day for certain athletes and artists.

Others can benefit.  Are you a gardner, maybe your profession?  The same for you.  Today is a day where you may find a new method, or multiple entire families of new methods.  Diamond cutters and other masters of stone can have the same kind of breakthrough.  Generally, this involves materials, ranging from smelting sand into glass to hammering marble to sculpting flesh through exercise. 

BUT, it does not have to be ENTIRELY “physical.”

Bean counters, specifically “forensic accountants” can have the same kinds of results.  The list is a long one.  But, if you have any earth in your natal chart whatsover, or any inclination along these lines, you’ll have an amazing day.

A few of you will meet a mentor today, maybe the most important one yet.

2020-05-01 : Beltane; Moon v/c at 11 AM Central (take a day off); Sun septile Neptune; Helio Uranus trine Astraea

2020-05-01 : Beltane; Moon v/c at 11 AM Central (take a day off); Sun septile Neptune; Helio Uranus trine Astraea

Summary

First, to those readers who celebrate Beltane (or MayDay): Happy Beltane!

Beltane is associated with a “Cross Quarter Day,” each of those associated with the 15 degree point (middle) of each of the four fixed signs: Taurus (Beltane), Leo, Scorpio (Halloween or Samhain), and Aquarius (varies, but typically Valentine’s Day).  Latin cultures celebrate Cinco de Mayo, which is actually closer to (or the same as) the 15 degree point.  Some years, the fifteen degree point is on the fourth, now also celebrated as a holiday honoring Star Wars (“May the Fourth Be With You”)

Also celebrated near this time is Wesak, a holiday based on the Full Moon at this time (Moon in Scorpio opposite Sun in Taurus).  Buddhists, and those who live in predominantly Buddhist nations, honor this day.

Slightly past 11 AM Central (1100 CDT), Leo Moon moves void of course and remains void until past midnight, making this an excellent day to “take off.”  Exactly what that means during a pandemic in which “shelter at home” orders have expired in many states in the United States is uncertain.  But, during the void, Moon will form quincunx aspects (the aspect of “false hopes” and miscommunications) with Jupiter and Pluto (both in Capricorn).  These can lead to some unpleasant experiences from 5 PM (CDT) to past sunset (until about 9 PM CDT).  If you are expecting a fun time at a movie or restaurant, a distinct possibility exists that you may be disappointed.

And, just because the moon is v/c for most of the day does NOT mean the day is “quiet.”  Some of us are still reeling from the Mercury / Uranus conjunction yesterday (along with the impact of Vesta / Eris).  Today has ANOTHER Eris aspect, Juno quinundecile Eris at 3:54 AM Central (0354 CDT), and we find that rather difficult to interpret.  This is a sufficiently abstract aspect that we resist the temptation to address it.  Regardless, expect important news to break overnight, something that could involve a betrayal and chaos resulting from that betrayal.  This might be a good time to follow a “hunch” about any matter that could involve safety.

  • Saturn sesquiquadrate Hygeia: authorities push harder (if that is even possible) for resolution of health and healthcare issues (presumably Covid19, but possibly other issues as well).
  • Helio Uranus trines Astraea: a breakthrough for legal matters (and lawyers), but almost certainly in the form of a surprise or unexpected result.  If you have anything to do with the legal system, including a pending matter, expect a breakthrough today, a seismic shift.
  • Sun septile Neptune: the moon might be void (and none of Mr. Shawvan’s “Opportunity Periods” today), but some people will have remarkable experiences.  Poets, photographers, videographers, and musicians might have a “mysterious coincidence,” such as a “chance meeting,” that springboards them into a masterwork.
  • Moon is profoundly “busy” despite the void (which is calculated using Ptolemaic, or traditional, aspects): two quadrinoviles; three members of the Septile family (think “remarkable coincidences”); two sesquiquadrates (URGENCY!) and others.  “Things” may not turn out as you have expected, and some disappointments may be had, but this could be a memorable day for the insights and “Aha!” moments you have, particularly if you are a Creative.
  • Mercury is also busy: six (6) aspects (tropical, geocentric) and also (by another method of calculation) six (6) aspects (heliocentric).  No matter how you look at it, Mercury is busy today and matters of communication and transportation are at the forefront.  As we always warn on such mercurial days: be careful regarding criminality.  (If it sounds “too good to be true,” then it probably is.)

Stay safe, and try not to take anything TOO seriously on this most “unusual” day.

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.

2020-04-18 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.

Forecast

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!)

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.

Sunout Daypage

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.

These aspects have been discussed elsewhere. We will not provide an analysis at this time, but may reference this date and these aspects in future posts (such as an analysis of the upcoming Full Moon). In this post, we specifically offer the DayPages: Marsout, Sunout, Moonout, and SunMoon, in that order.
