2020-05-02 : A breakthrough day for athletes, artists, accountants, and anyone working with any kind of earth

2020-05-02 : A breakthrough day for athletes, artists, accountants, and anyone working with any kind of earth

Summary

Do not let this day slip away.  You will have insights about how to do things better and the energy to get things done.  Do them.  Make things happen.  (Days like this one are incredibly rare.)

Interpretations

Today is an interesting day, genuinely different from most other days.

Here is what leaps out: this is one of the most creative days to come along in a long time, but it is a rather specific kind of “creative.”  Whatever it is, it is related to earth.

Variations: sculptors can have a breakthrough day today, producing some of their best work.  But this is not simply sculpting of clay or marble.  Bodybuilders, and other athletes, can have breakthroughs as well.  But do not think in terms of simply a “really good workout.”  This is a day about having the kind of “Aha!” moment that produces entirely new methods of training.  Even a small change in the sequence of the workout might produce the breakthrough.  This can be martial arts, weight training, running, yoga, pilates, conventional sports or anything similar.

Bottom line: amazing day for certain athletes and artists.

Others can benefit.  Are you a gardner, maybe your profession?  The same for you.  Today is a day where you may find a new method, or multiple entire families of new methods.  Diamond cutters and other masters of stone can have the same kind of breakthrough.  Generally, this involves materials, ranging from smelting sand into glass to hammering marble to sculpting flesh through exercise. 

BUT, it does not have to be ENTIRELY “physical.”

Bean counters, specifically “forensic accountants” can have the same kinds of results.  The list is a long one.  But, if you have any earth in your natal chart whatsover, or any inclination along these lines, you’ll have an amazing day.

A few of you will meet a mentor today, maybe the most important one yet.

2020-04-22 (4-4-4) New Moon in Taurus + conjunct Uranus

Summary

We have a New Moon in Taurus that has been written about extensively elsewhere.  Worthy of note is that Sun / Moon are also conjunct Uranus in Taurus, and this likely brings insights (high form), surprises (middle form), or accidents (low form).

This day also contains Ceres Novile Blackmoon Lilith (BML).  Anybody’s guess as to what that could mean, but it means that the grain goddess of prosperity (and supply chains and markets) is conspiring with the wild woman of undomesticated passion to bring us some new ideas.  Do not be surprised if the fashion and cosmetics industries come out with something completely new on this day or in the next few weeks.

Pluto forms a quintile to Chiron, and we have brainstorming about issues of death (Pluto) and healing (Chiron) along with the idea that the radical transformations that those two can bring might lead us (both collectively and individual) into the dawning of a new awareness.  No doubt the numerology of this date (4-4-4) confirms the possibility of such insights.  Mercury’s quintile to the North Node (Rahu, the Head of the Dragon) confirms the possibility of breakthrough ideas.  Mercury also chats with Neptune, so some creatives might have a good day producing the quality of work that speaks to both our hearts and our heads.

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.

April 20, 2017 (Julian 110)

April 20, 2017 (Julian 110)

Pluto stations retrograde today, and that is the headline news.  Matters involving death, taxes, investigations, homicides, and power structures bear deeper scrutiny at this time.  Certain secrets come to light.  Aries / Cancer / Libra / Capricorn (Cardinal Signs) are affected the most, but so are Taurus and Virgo.  Others tend to be bystanders or have reduced roles (unless you have a number of Cardinal planets in your natal chart).

Sun is in Taurus, Moon is in Aquarius (and Last Quarter), and (as we mentioned) Pluto stations retrograde today.  Mercury joins the Sun about 1 AM CDT.  Moon perfects semi-squares to Chiron and Venus (both in Pisces) in the early morning hours and some of us have a sense of urgency involving health, beauty, or maybe finances.  This is a great day for “home cleanup” if that is an option for you; some will find important misplaced items (or ideas about misused resources that need to be re-allocated(.  Moon also perfects a semi-square to Jupiter at this time, amplifying this sense of urgency.  (For some this may involving educational matters.)

Retrograde Mercury is void since about 1 AM CDT until it moves into Aries shortly before 1 PM CDT.  One misplaced item might be found but another lost.  It all seems to madness.

However, near 2 PM CDT Moon (Aquarius) trines Jupiter (Libra) and most people gain something of benefit, particularly air and fire signs.  This can be a good time to apply for a job or, alternatively, to obtain a good deal on an important purchase.

Jupiter binoviles Vesta, and some of us have important insights involving the traditions of home and family.
