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.

2020-04-30 : 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

2020-04-21 Sun square Saturn; Mars septile Chiron; Moon binoviles x3 Moon in Aries; Sun in Taurus

2020-04-21 Sun square Saturn; Mars septile Chiron; Moon binoviles x3 Moon in Aries; Sun in Taurus

Summary

Some astrologers are focused on Sun (Taurus) square Saturn (Aquarius), one of two squares the Sun makes to Saturn annually.  For people in the Western Hemisphere, this aspect has passed by the time most people are awake.  Some night owls might feel it.  In general, it was “felt” mostly on Monday, April 20th, lending a serious tone and difficulties to many situations, often demanding “hard work” to solve problems.  EU and UK feel it in the early morning hours, what would typically be “rush hour.”  By noon, it begins to fade for most people.

More interesting, but more subtle, is the septile that Mars forms with Chiron.  We felt a prelude with Moon in Aries conjunct Chiron yesterday.  This aspect is all about karma between Mars (the desire to “do something about it” and often violence) and Chiron (the wounded healer).  This is another obvious aspect: protests are emerging against “shelter in place” orders with demands to restart the economy.  For many, the situation is dire.  But, if the efforts to “reopen the economy” lead to a second wave, we could all be worse off.

Mercury binovile Pallas gives some interesting answers and ideas, possible solutions, and Venus sesquiquadrate Pallas provides another push for action.  Is this wise?  We will only know in hindsight.  But, mark my words, this week is a turning point from which “things” will be either much better or much worse.

Moon adds three binoviles and a quintile to the mix, all to outer planets and three out of four in the morning hours.  Our thinking caps are on, and we might discover some elegant solutions within ourselves.  Keep a notebook or recorder or something similar to capture these fleeting insights.

Most of tomorrow continues with a waning moon until the New Moon perfects past 9 PM CDT, another day of cleanout.

These three days, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday prior to the new moon are excellent for cleanout and maybe finding lost items and clearing the clutter and rubbish from our path for new projects after the New Moon.

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

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.

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.

2020-04-11 :

Some days are “quiet” if astrologers only use seven, or maybe ten, “planets” and traditional “ptolemaic” aspects.  These are days when that approach leaves astrologers in a position to “fudge.”

We avoid this problem, most of the time, by including some rather exotic aspects that occur with some equally exotic “planets” (many of which are not “planets” at all but asteroids or other objects or “calculated points” such as Selena (White Moon) and “Black Moon Lillith.”

That said, here is the Marsout daypage for April 11th:

Our interpretations of this day:

  • Mars biseptiles Selena at 0206 AM (CDT), which is past as we write this, and at 1939 CDT (7:39 PM) sextiles Black Moon Lillith.  What does this mean?  It means that, with Selena, we are called to action to reach for our highest good and highest accomplishment.  But, by Saturday night, we become focused on our more lustful side, particularly as it regards sex.  Frankly, for many of us, it is a GREAT night for, um, “romance.”
  • Saturn opposes Astraea: this is a “big picture” aspect.  Both of them are in their respective “too early to tell” positions, but they indicate a fight between authority sources (non-legal authority, particularly the financial sector versus legal authority, such as attorneys and the court system).  It is an ugly fight, and in many cases nobody can “win.”  Avoid such fights (perfects at 1317 CDT, 1:17 PM) if you can, unless it is your job.  If it is your job to be a lawyer or some other combatant, keep in mind that you might not get what you truly desire on this date, and whatever you do get will need to be revisited again, possibly at the next Mercury Retrograde.
  • Juno sesquiquadrates Ceres at 2203 CDT (10:03 PM) and some couples or households have a bit of a squabble out food, money, or other resources.  You will have to decide for yourself whether or not you want to spend your time and money on this squabble.
  • Chiron noviles Ceres at 2321 CDT (11:21 PM), and some of us have a flash of insight as to how to solve the aforementioned Juno / Ceres issue.  Pay attention to the ideas that pop into your head, and consider writing them down.

2020-04-05 SUN: Mars BiNovile Eris; Hygeia SSQ Selena; Venus Quintile Neptune; Moon BiQuintile Sun

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.
