2020-04-01 WED Selena opposite Eris + Chiron Septile Sedna

First , the good news: the alignment of the planets tells us that the Ascension so many people have been waiting for is here, and we will have no more troubles of any kind, evermore.

Yep, it is:

April 1st, 2020

Wednesday is another day with challenges. I know some of you are wondering if we ever have days that have no challenges. Technically, the answer is no. We all have challenges.

But Thursday morning and Friday morning both look good for times to seize opportunities.

Wednesday is, how shall we say it, “different.”

Summary

Wednesday is a day in which we have a choice: focus on our highest calling and integrating diverse resources into something new or opt for discord and disruption. Which will you choose?

Sun quintile Saturn and Mercury (in Pisces, a poor position for Mercury) quintiles Venus (in her home, Taurus (strong!)). We have the ideas! We know what to do, and we can create smarter and better solutions.

Mercury semisquare both Mars and Saturn tells us we need to do it, we need to followup.

Daypages

Marsout Daypage

We see two aspects in the Marsout daypage for April 1st, 2020: (1) White Moon Selena opposes Eris and (2) Chiron septiles Sedna. None of this is ordinary or straight forward in the way the a full moon or new moon can be clear and easy to interpret.

Selena opposite Eris

Selena has been described as part of the “Lilith corridor” along with Algol: “The fixed star Algol in the head of Medusa in the constellation Perseus is also thought of as part of this vast ‘Lilith corridor.’” Selena is not a “planet” or other object but, instead, is a calculated point. Most astrologers do NOT use Selena but a school of Russian astrology, the “Avestan school,” does use it.

Selena has been described by some thus: “White Moon or the Light Moon encompasses the (obscured) noble and pure nature within us.

https://astro-kitty.com/black-moon-lilith-white-moon-arta/

Today, White Moon Selena opposes Eris. Eris has been described as “Eris is the Greek goddess of strife and discord.

We have a fundamental battle of good and evil here today. Selena seeks to integrate, to harmonize, and opposite her is Eris, a purveyor of discord and strife. Florence Nightingale (as the archetype of nursing) is taking on one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

Plan accordingly.

Also active today, Chiron perfects a septile to Sedna. Chiron is the noble, peaceful Centaur who became the “wounded healer,” a teacher and healer who could heal all except himself.

As the sea goddess, Sedna has dominion over her creatures and controls the availability of seal, walrus, fish, whale, and other sea animals to Inuit hunters.

Does the wounded healer need to reach out to the sea goddess Sedna for help? How is his karma; has he learned his lessons. Will a cure for Covid19 come from the sea, possibly discovered by Japanese researchers?

Sunout Daypage

Sun quintile Saturn and Mercury (in Pisces, a poor position for Mercury) quintiles Venus (in her home, Taurus (strong!)). We have the ideas! We know what to do, and we can create smarter and better solutions. Mercury semisquare both Mars and Saturn tells us we need to do it, we need to followup.

Mercury septiles Jupiter and Pluto: we may need to reach out to others with a plan that comes from an “Aha!” moment to get done what needs to be done.

2020-04-01 Sunout Daypage

Moonout

Moon perfects quadrinoviles to Mars and Saturn in the afternoon (North America) or evening (UK / EU). We can have BRILLIANT solutions, but they will a bit different, and we can fail to realize their importance. Again, the aforementioned semisquares are in play, so harness that energy for accomplishment.

2020-03-31 (March 31, 2020):  Mars Conjunct Saturn (and more)

2020-03-31 (March 31, 2020):
Mars Conjunct Saturn (and more)

Summary

The dominant aspect today is Mars conjunct Saturn at 0 Aquarius.  Others have written about this and the likelihood that this could be a particularly difficult day.

We explore a Venus septile Chiron aspect that further confirms this as a difficult day.  The Venus / Chiron aspect, as well as four lunar septiles, tell us that this day could be dangerous, a “Karmic” day that could lead to a tragedy if, collectively, “we” have failed to learn an important lesson.

A lone novile shortly past 9 AM (Central Time) could give us an insight that solves the difficulty.

Details

Marsout

Many others have written about Mars / Saturn perfecting the 0 Aquarius conjunction today.  We cannot add much to the analyses that have been done, some of which are excellent.  Therefore, we focus on the Venus / Chiron septile in the daypage (above) with the chart for the perfection of that aspect to be next:

Septiles are a higher order aspect, and like the other higher order aspects (quintile / biquintiles, novile family, and others) they can bring brilliant insights.  Where the septiles differ is septiiles almost always involve some kind of KARMADid we learn the lesson?

In the past, about a week before the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Florida (2016), we noted a Septile perfecting (on the day of the shooting) and produced the analysis that “Today has Mars Septile Pluto, the aspect of karma for both warrior planets. A very smart thing to do with this is to do something for a disabled veteran you know (or for disabled veterans in general).”  (See, also: 2016-06 W24: Forecasts for Week 24 of 2016.)  The shooter was a security guard who had fallen on difficult times, a Scorpio with a Scorpio-Taurus in his natal chart, and an individual who might not have killed had someone been able to “reach” him.

In that case, we had NOT learned the lesson.

This day, March 31, 2020, has that same kind of feeling.  Here, we have Venus septile Chiron rather than Mars septile Pluto.  AND, we would expect the septiile today to be more benevolent.

BUT, (1) Venus is conjunct Algol (we have written extensively about Algol, notably 2010 Spring Equinox and relationship to the Deepwater Horizon disaster in late April), beginning on Hitler’s birthday (April 20th), (2) Chiron (the “wounded healer”) continues to be square to the Nodes (as was true six days  ago at the time of the annual Sun / Chiron conjunction), and (3) Chiron is square the Moon (nearly conjunct the North Node of Karma / Destiny).

Reaching beyond the obvious difficulty we might expect of the Mars / Saturn conjunction at 0 Aquarius (and, as others have written, that is such a long term aspect that it should be viewed as an important driver of this “Covid19 Pandemic” we are currently experiencing), we see that the Venus / Chiron septile (and relatiionship to Algol and square Moon & nodes) tells us to expect this particular day to likely be one of difficulty.

We will keep this analysis short:

  • Four (4) septile family aspects occur with the Moon today (IN ADDITION to Venus / Chiron): (1) Moon biseptile Sun; (2) Moon triseptile Jupiter; (3) Moon septile Uranus; and (4) Moon biseptile Uranus  This is another set of amplifiers of the Karmic nature of this day!
  • Moon perfects quincunx (inconjunct) aspects to both Mars & Saturn, telling us of misunderstandings that lead to heartache
  • A lone binovile (Sun / Moon at 0913 CDT) tells us of an insight that MIGHT prevent a tragedy of some kind.  Pay attention to your thoughts near this time.

Marsout Daypage

  • We note that Pluto joins Pallas (at 2157 CDT); this also confirms the tendency for this to be a warlike or violent day.  However, this energy CAN be channeled into insights and breakthroughs if anger and disputes are avoided or quickly and safely resolved.

One Last Comment: You should treat today’s “warning” as being in effect for most of the rest of the week.  Now is NOT the time to take risks!

June 22, 2017 (Julian 173) Dark of the Moon

June 22, 2017 (Julian 173) Dark of the Moon

Beyond our other commentary, consider this: the Moon is in Gemini (ruled by Mercury) and Mercury is in Cancer (ruled by the Moon).  This kind of exchange is called a “mutual reception,” and, unless it contains malefics (particularly Mars or Saturn or both), this is a powerful and beneficial situation that permits both planets to speak for each other or “trade places.”  That means, for the moment, both the Moon and Mercury are very powerful.

With a Dark of the Moon period, as we have now, the “veil is thin” as others have said, and we can tap into our intuitive side or, depending on your beliefs, connect with those who have gone before us and sometimes other entities.  This is the kind of period where people can “daydream” and let the mind spin free and then write down what comes to them and produce a powerful result.  Think of it as a portal that opens today, especially after dark, but does not last long and ones like this do not occur often.

With a Moon this old, eliminating unwanted people, places, and things becomes possible.  Just make sure that is what you really want.  Chances are good that once you have eliminated “it” or “them,” you will not get a do-over.  Old traditionalists would also say this is a good time to wean children (or anyone else) or eliminate bad habits (which works best if you have something to replace it, like chewing Nicorette gum instead of smoking, and then later eliminating the gum habit when the time comes).

Particularly at this time, “cleaning house” will help you find lost objects (literal cleaning) or uncover hidden resources (metaphorical cleaning).

We have written about the outers before, and most important is the semi-square that Mars makes to the North Node (karma).  This can, and likely will, manifest as violence somewhere (given our current conditions, which are starting to look like an undeclared war), but if you avoid dangerous people, places, and things, you might can harness “it” to help you finish some messy job that you detest but need done to make life better.  We are talking about the bitter medicine that cures he condition.

Mars also makes a biseptile to Chiron, and this is about as “karmic” as one can imagine.  This is about karma in the most fundamental way, and it can give you an important glimpse of the future, especially since we are in DOTM.  Ceres quadrinovile Astraea amplifies this, maybe giving us some kind of glimpse into how to obtain justice for an old wrong.

You can count on some bit of weirdness, a bit like Halloween in June.  (We have Christmas in July, so why not?)

June 7, 2017 (Julian 158) Moon v/c in Scorpio

June 7, 2017 (Julian 158) Moon v/c in Scorpio

The Moon is v/c in Scorpio for all of the day for EU / UK, and moves into Sagittarius at 5:59 PM CDT for those in the Western Hemisphere.  Minor aspects are mostly annoying ones except Moon trine Chiron during the void.  Chiron aspects are typically difficult since these usually involve looking at some place in our selves or our lives that is the “wound [we] cannot heal.”  Let us be clear: this will be a tough day for most people though some people with planets (especially “the lights,” the Sun or Moon) in water signs MIGHT prosper today.

Outers are busy with highly abstract and difficult to read aspects again.  Every day this week has some kind of Mars activity EXCEPT the 9th (which is Full Moon / Jupiter direct station AND has two 7th harmonic “karmic” aspects).  We think the entire week is, again, dangerous, and today is no exception.  Vesta (traditions, and sometimes possibly kinky sex) trines Black Moon Lilith (a sort of unbridled and wild sexuality), so if you are in an intense sexual relationship, or want to be, today is the day for that.

May 2, 2017 (Julian 122) Moon forms Thor’s Hammer with Chiron, Saturn

May 2, 2017 (Julian 122) Moon forms Thor’s Hammer with Chiron, Saturn

Technically, Saturn square Chiron perfected Sunday, though some events related to that manifested Monday (yesterday).  But with Sun forming a sesquiquadrate to Saturn today followed by a semisquare to Chiron, today might be the “big day.”

Here in Dallas, a police office shot, and killed, a fifteen year old passenger in a car that was pulling away from the police.  A stabbing rampage in Austin (Monday) left one student dead and three wounded.  A shooter shot a paramedic before killing himself and another.  The paramedic will likely live, but only due to a fast response.  A wrong way driver in Ohio had his car explode in a huge fireball caught on video.  We think Tuesday / Wednesday (Mercury direct station) / Thursday through the weekend (the days immediately after the direct station) could be worse.  But Tuesday really has our attention.

Late Tuesday the Moon forms sesquiquadrates with both Chiron and Saturn, leading to a pattern we call a Thor’s Hammer (aka “God’s Fist”).  People with a planet in mid-Leo, for example birthdays in the first two weeks of August, will likely feel this.

And people with late mutable birthdays (last week of Gemini / Virgo / Sagittarius / Pisces) will feel it along with late fire signs (the rest of Leo, and the last week of Aries) and late water signs (end of Cancer and end of Scorpio).  Actually, I think that covers enough of the zodiac that most of the rest of us will know or be related to someone that is affected.  That is, I think everyone will be affected.

As a bit of a footnote, today is Tiu’s Day (Tuesday).  Tiu was the Norse god of war, exactly equivalent to Mars, (aka the “lesser malefic”).

Do not take chances today.  Be careful today.

April 30, 2017 (Julian 120) Saturn Square Chiron

April 30, 2017 (Julian 120) Saturn Square Chiron

The big news today is that Saturn (Sagittarius) squares Chiron (Pisces).  The major pain that results for many people from this aspect may have been felt yesterday.  The fastest moving planet in this combination is Saturn with a 29.5 year orbit; Chiron has a somewhat irregular 50 year orbit.

That means that a year for Saturn is like a day for the Moon.  We usually think of lunar aspects lasting about +/- two hours, about 1/6 of a day.  For Saturn, this would be equivalent to +/- a month.  Combined with what some have called the “Retrograde Spring” of 2017, “things” can be tough for late mutables (for example, people with Sun in Gemini / Virgo / Sagittarius / Pisces in the last week of the sign).

Also suffering significantly (or, if you do not like that language, “experiencing a transformation”) are those who are having a Saturn return (typically 28 to 30 years of age, 57 to 59 years of age, or near 90 years of age) and those having a Chiron return (about 49 to 51 years of age or about 100 years of age) or demi-return (25 or 75 years of age).  The people who are having the Chiron return (or demi) are likely hit the hardest of all, especially if they have any late mutable planets.

I would like to say “the worst is over now,” but I cannot.  Tuesday looks especially bad, worse than yesterday or today.  Tuesday the Sun (Taurus) forms (1) a sesquiquadrate with Saturn about 6:30 AM CDT and (2) a semisquare with Chiron about 10 AM CDT.

But, (Monday and) Tuesday get worse: Tuesday evening (between 8 PM CDT and 9 PM CDT) the Moon (void in Leo) forms a sesquiquadrate with both Saturn (Sagittarius) and Chiron (Pisces).  Long time readers of my work know what this is: a “Thor’s Hammer” (or “Fist of God”), the pattern associated with Adam Lanza (who killed so many at Sandy Hook Elementary).  I think that Monday and Tuesday are extremely dangerous days.  Please do note that Mercury stations direct on Wednesday, exacerbating any “situations” that might arise.  (You might want to stay awake from people, places, and things that are “not entirely stable.”)

Back to Sunday (April 30th): Lunar aspects are “unremarkable,” consisting of a sextile, trine, and a square (to Jupiter).  These Jupiter squares are notorious for overeating, overspending, or over-indulging in some other way.  Practice moderation, if you can, this Sunday.

Outers have the aforementioned Saturn / Chiron square and two more: (1) Jupiter (Libra) sesquiquadrate Ceres (Gemini) bringing about intense conversations about food or “prosperity” or both; (2) Pluto (Capricorn) quadrinovile Ceres.  This latter is trickier to interpret, but it is likely to be a bit unpleasant (Pluto in Capricorn) but bring insights regarding issues of food or prosperity or both.

No question about it, these next few days leave me VERY nervous!

On the outside chance something happens to ME, let me say this: it has been an HONOR to have the opportunity to write a few forecasts for you.  (But, let us hope that my fears are unwarranted.)
