June 8, 2017 (Julian 159) Waxing Moon in Sagittarius + more….

Today, and tomorrow, are complex.  Moon has entered Sagittarius and is waxing, building to the Full Moon (Moon in Sadge / Sun in Gemini) tomorrow at 8:09 AM CDT.  The Moon does NOT go void after perfecting the FM (which sometimes happens) but goes on to make other aspects.  AND on this same day, Jupiter stations direct.

Also, this is as “full” as this FM can be at night.  Friday night it is shrinking, and much (not all) of the show is over.  If you are celebrating the waxing full moon, you need to do it tonight.

Outer planet stations can be tricky to interpret because the following shadow period lasts, literally, months.  So, what does it mean?  We can only guess that it deals with topics where Jupiter (ambassadors, “foreigners,” foreign travel, higher education, law, legal, courts of law, and similar topics) and Libra (art in general but particularly art forms such as writing (prose more than poetry, Pisces “owns” poetry), “relationships,” law and the legal system (and questions of “fairness,” sometimes synonymous with the term “equity” or “equitable”) and almost any other question of “balance”).  Since the Moon is in Sadge (a survivable but not particularly favorable place for it) and Jupiter is “standing still” (from our Earth bound vantage point), “things” can become a bit messy.  (The Moon “could” be strong, except it is in the sign ruled by Jupiter and Jupiter is at a standstill, further debilitating the Moon.)

Mercury (now in its home of Gemini) also forms a sesquiquadrate (get it done NOW because it is overdue) aspect with Pluto (in Capricorn, strong but not at home), and we feel a strong sense of urgency.  Since Mercury CAN rule accounting or bookkeeping, Capricorn is about finances and (especially large) corporations, and Pluto is about digging into the deeper aspects of everything, we bet that something “interesting” will happen with regard to the financial markets (on a large scale) and maybe your personal finances or budgeting (or a personal scale).  If it does not happen today, then it will happen tomorrow or already happened yesterday.

Outers continues to be complex, and both Mars and Black Moon Lilith continue to be active.  Many of the higher order aspects are difficult to read, but a few are clear.  Jupiter (Libra) perfects a sextile to Vesta (Leo), and we find that traditions are emphasized, particularly regarding courts and higher education but also in personal relationships.  We are purposely understating the case here because we suspect that the Jupiter station makes these issues HUGE “punctuation marks” in the lives of many of us.

Neptune (poetry, photography, videography, sometimes alcohol or drug abuse or criminality) perfects a novile (high order insights that are glimpses of the future, PAY ATTENTION!) with Pallas (genius and insight, but particularly of a military or athletic nature more than the more general Uranian variety).

You will have an important hint given to you today, and it may be very difficult to understand, maybe extra strange (a UFO will land in your yard and steal your pink flamingos).  You do not believe in UFOs, don’t have any pink flamingos (and detest them), and you write the idea that this is important off as stupid.

But the next day, or maybe this weekend, or next week, or “soon,” your elderly auntie stops by your house and gives you, much to your surprise, her cherished pink flamingos, a pair of them.  She goes on to see the doctor, is immediately hospitalized, and dies an hour later.  You put the flamingos out front for trash collection.  Some guys in a moving van, who are actually “aliens” from Mexico, employed by “UFO Movers” of Roswell, New Mexico, see the flamingos and take them.

And then they are gone, headed out of state to a destination over 1,000 miles away.  They are transient labor, and you will NEVER track them down.  Gone forever.

You find out next week that one of those flamingos was worth $10,000.  A pair is extra rare, and they were worth $25,000.  The technical explanation for this situation is this: You are one STUPID f-cker.  You did NOT pay attention to the gift of insight the universe gave you.

Moral of the story: PAY ATTENTION!  Noviles work like this….

Sun is in Gemini.  “Reaction time is a factor in this, so please pay attention.”

And Mars is still quite active.

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

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.

May 12, 2017 (Julian 132)

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)..

May 11, 2017 (Julian 131) Void Moon in Scorpio enters Sadge + Mars Square Neptune + Mercury trine Saturn

May 11, 2017 (Julian 131) Void Moon in Scorpio enters Sadge + Mars Square Neptune + Mercury trine Saturn

Void since perfection of the Full Moon yesterday, Moon continues void this morning in Scorpio until it enters Sagittarius at almost exactly Noon CDT.  Moon quincunx Uranus (Aries) then Mercury (Aries) near sunrise (CDT) leads to mistakes and miscalculations just in time for rush hour.  Be extra careful, and make absolutely certain that you do not follow too closely.  A lunar trine to Chiron about 7:30 AM CDT brings issues of healthcare, education, mentors or some mix all to the surface.  Recognize them but do not take action until at least the void is over and preferably on another day.

Why avoid action today?  Mars squares Neptune, and nothing is as it seems.  Snake oil salesmen and con-artists prosper, and unless you are one of those, chances are good you will not.  Mercury trines Saturn which leads people to check every detail, dot every “i,” and cross every “t.”  Even the snake oil salesmen may not do so well.  Maybe we should say “salesperson” because chances are the person likely to blindside you will not meet with your expectations.

Any upsides for today?  Plenty.  First, creatives continue to prosper.  This day tends to favor photographers, videographers, and other visual artists more than yesterday.  Work done this morning may require re-dos but should be done anyway.  Often the genius of a work is found in a re-do or edit.  Today is that kind of day.

Exactly the same advice applies to anyone who examines details for a living.  But if you are proofreading in the morning, make certain you give it a second look in the afternoon or evening.  Something will leap out at that time that makes a difference, maybe a pivotal change.

Moon is waning, so removal of the unnecessary leads to prosperity.  Sun is in Taurus, so sculptors prosper.  Just do not work in stone or marble this morning; model it in clay in the morning then do the final work in stone later today.

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!

April 14, 2017 (Julian 104)

This site is called the “Irregular Oracle” because, well, I just cannot sustain the effort to post every day.  Some days, yes.  Most days, maybe.  Every day, absolutely not.

That said….

April 14, 2017 (Julian 104)

Sun joins Uranus in their annual meeting, both in Aries.  With Mercury and a number of other planets retrograde, all bets are off.  Expect surprises.  Also expect brilliant ideas; capture them if you can.  Play this weekend if you can, but be careful.  A Grand Fire Trine favors Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius, and air signs Libra, Aquarius, and Gemini do well also.  To everyone: watch your temper.

Mars joins Sedna, and Sedna is so new that this is difficult to interpret.  At least one source claims that Sedna is the “goddess of the victim.”  With an orbit of more than 10,000 years, Sedna will not budge during our lifetime nor move “much” in the next century.  (Which leads me to question its usefulness in prediction.)   But Mars does touch it today, and we suspect that might somehow be significant.

Mars is also quintile Neptune, and this can bring bright ideas to creatives, particularly poets, songwriters, photographers, and videographers.  Watch out for scammers and con-artists, because some of them will develop particularly ingenious ways to cheat people today.  Stick to the basics.  Have fun, and avoid “get rich quick” schemes.

Chiron triseptile North Node tells us that it would be wise to help someone anonymously without any hope of compensation in the future.  Just do something decent for someone, and do it without anyone else knowing who you are.
