June 11, 2017 (Julian 162) Moon in Capricorn + Neptune Quincunx Vesta

Since Neptune will turn retrograde soon, this week on June 16th, we will quickly revisit this aspect “soon” (July).  This is an unpleasant aspect that typically brings chaos and discord to traditions and “how we have always done things.”  Pluto triseptiles Vesta, bringing a flavor of “karma” to the mess.  Forgiveness is smarter than blame here.  If you cannot do that, then leave the situation and give yourself a “time out.”

Moon in Capricorn forms a quincunx about 11 PM CDT Saturday night and almost exactly 24 hours later Moon perfects the same aspect to the Sun.  This is more chaos and discord.  Events involving alcohol / drugs can go very badly at this time.  Stay away from those situations.

9 AM CDT brings a Moon / Jupiter square, and those are also about “overdoing,” particularly overeating or overspending.  By 8 PM CDT, Moon perfects a conjunction to Pluto, and you, or someone near you, will want an accounting.  This is not a day to squander time, money, or opportunities.  It is a day to stay out of spats and disagreements.  If necessary, spend time alone and “clean house” and work on finances & bookkeeping.

And, plan for the upcoming week.  “Things” can be a bit strange Tuesday / Wednesday / Thursday.  If you, or someone you know, uses or abuses alcohol or drugs, “things” can reach a breaking point.  Ditto for people with various mental illnesses (schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and so forth).  Things can “get a lot more crazy.”  (We are stealing that line from a Dateline episode.)  Take care of business TODAY (Sunday); you will need the essentials done.

Moon squares Jupiter, touches Pluto, and squares Uranus over the course of the day, activating the Cardinal T-Square, Grand Cross if you count Vesta.  If you avoid pointless disputes, then you will have much energy to get things done.

This is the last full day of Sun in Aries.  If fire/air favor you, knock out everything you can today, else postpone until Friday or Saturday.  Wednesday, both Sun and Moon change signs, leaving a bit of a mess as far as getting things done goes. Thursday, Pluto stations retrograde.

Outers continue to be tricky to read, but Jupiter square Astraea is a bellwether of legal issues and maybe lawsuits for some.

April 16, 2017 (Julian 106)

Easter is here (rather late this year), and Sun in Aries is nearly done.  For Christians, this is an important day for the faithful.  Sun moves into Taurus April 19th, Pluto stations retrograde April 20th, and a New Moon in Taurus greets us April 25th.

The Moon is EXTREMELY busy today, going void in Sagittarius when it joins Saturn about 1:30 PM CDT.  While Easter might be about mercy and benevolence and second chances (“rebirths”), Moon conjunct Saturn is anything but that, and both are in Sagittarius (the sign, among other things, of organized religion).  From 7 AM CDT to 11 PM CDT we have three lunar trines, and those help things at least a little.

Mars (Taurus) sextiles Venus and Chiron (both in Pisces), and this bodes well, EXTREMELY well, for creatives.  While this is typically a social day, if you are creative you might consider carving out a period of time where you can work alone (unless your creative work involves social events or others in some way).  This will be one of the better days this year for creative work.

Outers are nearly quiet and mostly benevolent EXCEPT for Juno novile Lilith which means that (curiously!) the wife and the mistress might meet and form an alliance.  While rare, such things do happen, and it is bad news for the philanderer.  The wife divorces the philandering spouse and takes the assets and becomes girlfriends with the mistress. While this will not apply to everyone, it will apply to some!  Given that Venus just moved Direct yesterday, this might be overdue!

We only have this to say:  Don’t be the philanderer!
