June 5, 2017 (Julian 156) Moon in Libra moves to Scorpio; Mercury, Venus Void

Moon is quite active today, starting in Libra but turning void by 3:55 AM CDT and then moving into Scorpio at 5:45 AM CDT.  Oppositions to Venus then Uranus overnight leave many of us restless with sleep difficulties or strange dreams.  UK / EU make likely have some strange events or surprises this morning.  (Let us hope they are not dangerous ones.)

Moon forms sesquiquadrates to Neptune and the Sun, forming a Thor’s Hammer (God’s Fist), a notoriously dangerous pattern.  The danger tends to affect again (you guessed it) EU / UK but COULD occur elsewhere.  Venus is void after the previously mentioned opposition until the early morning hours of June 6th (Western Hemisphere) and Mercury turns void about 10 PM and remains void until about 5 PM CDT on June 6th.  The 9/11 terrorists acts in 2001 occurred during a Moon v/c, so voids CAN be dangerous.

We have previously discussed outers (yesterday), but will mention that we think they still look dangerous.  Mars biseptile Jupiter tends to be “karmic” (sometimes payback or revenge) and Mars / Jupiter anything tends to produce disputes amplified far beyond what would normally be expected.  Be careful today.

Summary: Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) have a SLIGHT advantage today, but people in general tend to enter into unreasonable disputes.  Work alone if you can, and send out your results after the Moon moves into Sagittarius (unless you are a water sign; water signs can risk sending out results today).

May 12, 2017 (Julian 132) + May 13, 2017 (Julian 133)

Summary: we think this is mostly a happy weekend for most people.  Cleanup and discard is favored, and chores that make you home more hospitable and like better in general are favored.  Some temptation toward minor disputes may be present; channel that energy, instead, into “getting things done.”  Some people may face important health issues.  But, again, overall this is a benevolent weekend.

Moon is in Sagittarius (waning) all day today.  Waning moons favor progress by “cleaning out” or eliminating excess.  The big news today is Mars (Gemini) trine Jupiter (Libra).  Many of us will receive a special gift of some kind today, particularly air signs (Libra, Aquarius, Gemini).

Since Mars / Jupiter can make “things” (people, places, things) blow up, avoid dangerous situations and avoid being dangerous yourself today.  Most people will benefit, but some might go off the rails.  Moon forming sesquiquadrates to Mercury (Aries) then Uranus (Aries) tends to amplify this effect from the morning (Western Hemisphere) until some time past 1 PM CDT.  Working alone might be advisable.

About 4 PM CDT Moon squares Neptune, and moments of confusion can occur.  This too shall pass, so just let it work itself out without exerting any more effort than necessary.  Based on my experience (NOT “astrological theory”), I have witnessed people (including myself, but also others) receiving “traffic citations” (i.e. tickets or fines) under this aspect.  Drive safely!

Despite the fact that we are still in the shadow of the recent Mercury Retrograde AND the Moon is waning, some of us (many of us) will be able to achieve great accomplishments today.  Buyers are favored over sellers.  Pallas novile White Moon can add an insight or glimpse of the future, but we are not sure precisely how to interpret this.  Keep your notepad or other capture device handy for ideas.

Mars also forms a quincunx to Hygeia, so health and healthcare issues may be problematic for some of us.

May 13, 2017 (Julian 133)

Moon quincunx Sun about 10:30 AM CDT produces an annoyance or gotcha.  A purchased item may proved defective or inadequate and a return may be necessary.  Like yesterdays Moon / Neptune square, do what is necessary to obtain a remedy (but no more).  After this the day “opens up” and is pleasant for most people.  Moon in Sagittarius forms aspects that favor using this as a “work day” or some kind of “clean up” day.  Do those chores and know that you will be glad you “took care of things.”

9 PM CDT brings a short lunar void for a few hours until half past midnight.  Since it begins with Moon trine Mercury, this is a good time to reflect on the past few days and make notes of your reflections.  More insight will likely come later, yet you will be glad you have these notes.

Outers are a big enigmatic, but perfection of Jupiter square Hygeia may bring health / healthcare issues to the forefront for some of you.  For you, today could be problematic.  A Mars septile throws a bit of karma into the mix (and maybe a glimpse of the future), and we recommend you do something benevolent for someone less fortunate than yourself anonymously and without any hope of future compensation or recognition.  Sometimes even a kind word can turn the tide, maybe saving a life (or many lives)..

April 23, 2017 (Julian 113)

We think today is particularly interesting because of this article about Venus as Inanna at the First Gate.  It means the otherwise relatively ordinary conjuniction of the Moon with Venus in Pisces takes on a special meaning, a turning point of some kind.  We also note that the Presidential Election in France is today.  About 4:30 PM CDT Moon in Pisces turns v/c until it enters Aries about 7:30 PM CDT.  The void of course period begins after this “First Gate” has been touched or opened.

Much earlier in the day, about 3 AM CDT (and probably about 10 AM in France), Mars (Gemini) is sesquiquadrate Jupiter (Libra). and “things” (people) can become unpleasant because of a belief that “something must be done about it.”  Will France elect Marine Le Pen president?

Moon joins Chiron about 2:30 PM CDT (the Wounded Healer, in Pisces, takes the spotlight), and an hour later Moon squares Saturn (in Sadge).  Religion and issues of belief can take center stage, and chances are good that “things” are not very pleasant.  Will we see riots?

Outers: Mars Triseptiles Saturn, and karma is very definitely in play today.  Please do note that this involves Mars (the “lesser malefic”) and Saturn (the “greater malefic”).  Again, “things” could turn ugly.  Saturn quincunx Ceres is a similar amplifier of unpleasentness.  This is a difficult day.

For most people, this is a “day off,” and that is a GREAT use of this day.  The triseptiles tell us that we are wise to help someone less fortunate than ourselves, done anonymously and with no thought of compensation in the future.  After Moon moves into Aries, SOME useful work can be accomplished if that is necessary, but still do avoid fruitless conflicts.
