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.

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

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 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.

May 10, 2017 (Julian 130) Full Moon in Scorpio + Mercury / Uranus conjunct in Aries

May 10, 2017 (Julian 130) Full Moon in Scorpio + Mercury / Uranus conjunct in Aries

Many others have noted that this is an “interesting” Full Moon.  Moon in Scorpio opposite Sun in Taurus is always a time of addressing compelling issues each year, but some years more than others.  This FM is at twenty degrees, so it is not precisely on the point where the Cross Quarter Days are located (at 15 degrees).

However, Mercury, direct after a recent retrograde period, touches the twenty degree point at this time where is become conjunct with Uranus in Aries.  This conjunction occurs on the same day as the FM, but about sixteen hours earlier.  Worthy of note is the fact that this is the third time Mercury has joined Uranus at (or “near”) this point, a bit of an exclamation point.  Uranus is also considered to be the “higher octave” of Mercury.  This combination of Mercury / Uranus is precisely semi-sextile the Sun in Taurus and quincunx the Moon in Scorpio.

Outers are “interesting” also.  Jupiter quintiles Vesta, and some of us have some bright ideas regarding our rituals and traditions.  Mars binquintiles Pluto, adding a dash of brilliance or perhaps genius involving power struggles and things Scorpionic: investigations, chemistry, toxicology or poisons, police, intelligence agencies (including the FBI, in the news spotlight again we note), and sometimes criminals.  Actually, ALL “martians” benefit at this time, meaning people who are soldiers, whether literal or metaphorical, become stronger and smarter at this time.

Jupiter opposes Pallas (the maiden warrior goddess), and this further amplifies everything mentioned in the previous paragraph.  Criminologists may have important breakthroughs at this time.  Ditto for cryptography experts.

Pallas perfects a sesquiquadrate to the North Node, and a sense of urgency simply will not let any aforementioned “martians” rest.  They feel they MUST act at this time.  Do not be surprised if an even more explosive scandal bursts onto the politicial scene at this time.

Privately, for “the rest of us,” this is one hell of a day to “get things done.”  Seize the moment and seize the day.  But, keep in mind that this is not a day to be frivolous or “stupid.”  That just will not be tolerated.  Keeping that in mind, chances are good that you can have breakthroughs that are nothing short of amazing at this time.  All signs benefit: earth and water benefit from the FM and fire and air benefit from Mercury conjunct Uranus.

May 9, 2017 (Julian 129) Moon in Scorpio Waxing

May 9, 2017 (Julian 129) Moon in Scorpio Waxing

Lunar aspects are relatively few today.  Shortly before 1 PM CDT, Moon perfects a quincunx with Venus.  Although this aspect is unpleasant, it passes relatively quickly.  About 35 minutes later, Moon perfects a trine with Pluto.  This could be useful for research or investigations.  No other routine lunar aspects occur today.  (We are not looking at higher order lunar aspects at this time.)

Outers are busier, and they tend to produce an undercurrent of annoyance.  Mars biquintiles Juno, the kind of aspect that favors women contemplating divorce along with their lawyers.  (This gives them a brainstorm.)  Other women and the men they hire or manipulate into attacking others are also favored.  Pallas (the warrior goddess) squares Hygeia (health and healthcare), possibly bringing either ideas or annoyance (or both) to those working in the healthcare field.  Finally, Ceres forms a sesquiquadrate with Pluto, raising issues with those on diets or those who are struggling with “prosperity issues.”

This is a day with annoyances, and you will certainly feel an urge to “get things done.”

April 12, 2017 (Julian 102)

The Full Moon begins to wane more clearly.  Soon, on Saturday, Venus stations direct.  Relationships, values, and finances (especially the last in a Scorpio Moon) are at the forefront of our concerns.

Moon in Scorpio activates Mercury Retrograde in early morning hours (about 3 AM CDT) and some of us have wacky nuisance events of some kind plaugue us.  This is a car breakdown on a lare night snack run (or police encounter with Moon in Scorpio) or an odd misunderstanding or something like that.

Silent for most of the day, the Moon makes sesquiquadrates to Chiron then Venus about 4 PM CDT and 5:30 PM CDT.  We feel a sense of urgency regarding something involving helping another, spirituality, health, or maybe poetry or lyrics.  Songwriters and poets should wrap up current project and begin a review of old projects put on hold.  A trine to Neptune by 8 PM CDT brings a sense of relief.

Mars perfects a biquintile to Jupiter, and a few of us have genius level ideas today.  Capture them with your capture device, whether notepad, cell phone, camera, voice recorder, or something else.
