It's time for another Solar Eclipse! Again, no charts uploaded for this one, so we're going with descriptions once again. The commute is taking a lot out of me. The sheer amount of rage I was feeling this whole day before writing this, and later hearing about the shooting in Florida, it makes sense. I seem to get these rage spells before something major happens. I don't know if this is an Eclipse effect on myself (as this Eclipse is 3 degree orb opposite my own Sun, and the previous Solar Eclipse was 2 degrees conjunct my sun, in time for my solar return... I am heavily amped on eclipse energies right now). Let's begin while I still can get at least 5 hours of sleep.
The Solar Eclipse itself takes peaks at 13:05:08 PST on February 15th, 2018. I intend to look at the aspects from Solar Eclipse to other bodies first, and then some of the more exact positions afterwards. This will be solely a Southern Hemisphere eclipse as well, so us northerners won't see anything. A Solar Eclipse can be thought of as a supercharged New Moon, and its effects are generally felt for several months after it passes. Given the sheer intensity of the preceding Lunar Eclipse, this Solar one will be felt I feel for an entire year, so consider this as a sort of transit snapshot to consider in your dealings.
And... All planets are still direct during this Solar Eclipse. This is very rare for all planets to be direct during both a Lunar and Solar eclipse cycle, much less all planets direct for two months or more. I don't have figures as to the last time this has happened. I'm not even sure if it's in the last century or two, to be honest.
Primarily, the Solar Eclipse conjuncts Mercury, greatly amplifying communications and travel matters. Given that both are in Aquarius, basically, a lot is going to be in the air, frankly. Both Solar Eclipse and Mercury square Jupiter in Scorpio as well, putting us at odds with some major dark energies. We're going to be feeling at odds with where we're going, how we're getting there, and we are just going to be diving deep into our belief systems trying to figure out just how the hell we're supposed to pull all of this off. Solar Eclipse conjunct Juno also puts our families and loved ones into focus, and this is a time where we need to figure out where they stand with us, and us with them. Are we being upfront with them, or are we hiding something for our own ulterior motives?
Further aspecting the Solar Eclipse is a semisextile to Chiron and Narcissus in Pisces. What this tells me is that we've got some event that's triggering our emotions in a big way, and whether its the ego and conceit of ourselves or someone else we know, it's causing us some unneeded pain right now, and we've got this urge to confront it and do something about it. How we handle this is entirely up to us.
Solar Eclipse sextile Ixion (itself on Galactic Center) and trine Leviathan in Gemini gives us a minor boost in confronting those who would take advantage of us and swallow us whole.
Mercury conjunct Juno and sextile Uranus points to some sudden and unexpected messages and travels regarding family and relationships. Uranus in Aries makes this hot hot hot, and the sextile is an easier aspect to deal with, so these unexpected developments should be quite positive actually. Mercury and Juno trine Lust in Gemini, while Lust sextiles Uranus also supports this. This could be a time period where some nice honeymoon travels take place.
We do have some cautionary tales to consider too, as Venus conjuncts Nessus and Silver in Pisces during this Eclipse. This has to do with what we value, what we find attractive, relationships, perhaps some job details as well. And this conjuncts the asteorid of obsession and potential abuse in the sign of free-flowing emotion. We run a risk of getting overly attached to someone or something that may not necessarily be the best thing for us right now, and Silver in the mix suggests this will have to do with money or precious objects or metals. Venus opposite Medusa retrograde in Virgo and quincunx Nymphe and Ceres (both also retrograde in Leo), while also semisextiling Eros in Aquarius warns us to be very careful with who we open our hearts (among other parts of our bodies) to at this time as well. We need to make sure we're not betraying ourselves for something that's not going to ultimately be of value to us, after all. Fortunately, Venus sextile Saturn in Capricorn and Cupido in Taurus should give us a little bit of stability and discipline so we don't completely go off of the deep end.
During this eclipse season, we do also have a potentially troublesome aspect with Mars in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces. Mars wants to go and it wants to go now!. Trouble is, it's at odds with Neptune, the planet of illusions and daydreaming, and pretty much what this tells me is that we want to go, but we have no solid idea where we should be going, and it's pretty much going to go all over the place! As Mars semisextiles Pandora and Black Moon Lilith at the same time, we could be going into a world of trouble if we don't take a step back and have a solid plan in place. I mean, we could just go down the rabbit hole and see where we end up, but who knows what that'll give us... Given the other aspects, that's just trouble brewing! Build a solid plan, Mars trining North Node will help us find our way and point us in the right direction, thankfully!
Now, given that Neptune would be semisextile South Node at this same time, what that means for us is that if we let ourselves get lost in the shuffle, we'll likely retreat back to the same illusory places that aren't advancing us anywhere. Neptune and South Node in this configuration can also mean retreating back into habits of addiction, such as drugs and alcohol, and with all the goings on right now, that is a very strong temptation right now. It's even a strong indicator of the opioid crisis, in my humble opinion, and that Mars square to Neptune definitely makes this a priority. Granted, it would be even more of a problem if Neptune were conjunct the South Node, but the semisextile (and thus quincunx to North Node) suggests further that we need a clear path forward.
I'm going to end with notating that Uranus and Pluto are still squaring at a wide orb. While that can be a bit problematic for us in general and can upend our world a bit, it's much more subtle now than it was before during the 2010-2015 period. But it's still there slightly, albeit in its death throes. Uranus being sextile the Solar Eclipse does give us a degree of insulation from the carnage, so it's not all doom and gloom. Pluto sextile Jupiter also helps us along with some growth in our lives, and with knowing what we must cast away and give up to God or Creator or whoever you believe in (if you're into that), we should trust that some things will work out the way they should. The rest, we need to pay attention and help that working-out along, and intelligently.
That is all I have time for, and believe me, it's a powerful Eclipse time for us all. I'm way short on sleep as I finish this up, so pretty much just be careful, and be vigilant. Good things will come, we just need to be ready for them, recognize when they're in front of us, and if you have a strong sixth sense telling you of danger, pay attention to it. General advice, but very pertinent for this time. I've got to cut and run now. Until next time.
We're going to try this weekly thing again. Now, I've added a multitude more asteroids to look at and we're going to be looking at some of these other energies as they relate to the major planets. Right now, I'm ignoring asteroid to asteroid aspects, as I tried that with some of last week's daily reports (that I was able to get to), and I think I may have overloaded things just a bit. So trying to cut this back and see what's really pertinent. So think of it as aspects to major planets/Chiron/Nodes at tightest orbs for the week. Let's get started as I've got a lot of catching up at work to do this week too.
First off, we have a Solar Eclipse this week on the 15th, mainly visible in the Southern Hemisphere from what I know, so this week is going to be a bit of a super-intense dynamo. Don't expect normalcy this week at all.
Monday, we've got Moon in Capricorn for the entire day, so our thoughts and feelings are going to be centered around our career objectives. Basically, how we're going to we're going to begin the early morning hours around Midnight PST with Chiron conjunct Narcissus, which points to some sort of cathartic healing or possibly wounding, this dealing with our own self-pride or of asserting our own self-importance. Mars is passing over Antares around this time as well, a quite potent fixed star around 10 Sagittarius. A good start for endeavors involving gain for ourselves, but could lead to some trouble with friends and associates. Probably we prioritize our own pet projects over group projects. Moon quincunx North Node around 1:00 PST points to some give or take of our feelings and our greater destiny. As this denotes a semisextile to the South Node at the same time, we're likely wondering just how we're to get to where we're supposed to go if the past keeps getting in the way? Good question, and one only you can answer for yourself. An hour later at 2:00 PST, Moon passes over fixed star Vega, which further boosts some of the potential for financial gain, but again, at a risk of trouble through messages written and possible public chastisement, so for some reason I'm thinking potential trouble via social media overnight with this one. The Internet is forever, after all.
Monday morning around 8:00 PST gives us Pluto semisextile Mercury, and this points to some potential trouble or some irksome problems involving messages and travel. Moon conjuncts Pluto at 11:00 PST, and semisextiles Mercury around Noon PST as well. So there is a great dynamic with our feelings or possible psychic vibes regarding travel, communication, heightened emotions, and basically the making and breaking of matters.
Personal Example: tire pressure indicator came on on my car over the weekend, and I got it go go off by putting air in my tires, but also I noticed my treads are pointing towards me needing to replace all the tires next service (within the next 2 weeks if not sooner)... If the light comes on again on my way to work around this couple of hour span, well, work's just going to have to do without me for a few hours until I can get them replaced then, as that's pretty problematic to have to deal with. This is a possible manifestation of these aspects.
Into the evening around Monday, we've got Mars semisextile Black Moon Lilith, and Jupiter sextile Moon, which should help reinforce some sense that we're being watched over, or at the very least a bit of a boost of luck. The Mars/Black Moon Lilith connection might give us a bit of an intuitive boost to get some tasks done or guide us to a course of action. An hour later, Moon square Eris near 17:00 PST points to some helter-skelter in how we feel about how things are going, and we should take care that we don't go off the deep end.
Later on going into the nighttime, 20:00 through 22:00 PST gives us a trifecta of Moon semisextile Sun, Moon semisextile Juno, and Uranus square Moon. The Moon is, of course, priming itself for the solar eclipse on Thursday, and there's going to be that underlying tension between that and of course some of our dealings with our loved ones as well (Sun conjunct Juno about this time as well). Uranus square Moon with the other two aspects combined could lead to some heated emotions in the home or with our families, so this would probably be an ideal night to just turn in early and not get into unnecessary conflict. Our dream visions overnight could be a bit intense, so do pay attention to sudden shifts in the dreamscape.
Tuesday, we begin overnight with Moon sextile Chiron while Vesta squares Neptune at Midnight PST, and Ixion semisextile Moon closer to 1:00 PST. So it's possible we'll be clearing the air a bit in overnight conversations, but there's also a nagging feeling that something is off when it comes to what we hold dear in our innermost core. Perhaps a sense of betraying our own self-interest, or perhaps we're chasing phantoms in our dealings with others around this time. Again, pay attention to dream visions very carefully around this night. As we wake up around 7:00 PST, Uranus sextile Juno facilitates some pleasant domestic surprises, like maybe a chance coffee or breakfast in bed from a loved one.
The afternoon into evening hours around 15:00 PST gives us trouble as Jupiter squares Mercury and Moon semisextiles Venus. There is a major potential for miscommunication or saying the wrong thing, so do be careful with your words, especially to significant others or with art buyers perhaps, as there is a high potential for someone to take something the wrong way. Use tact. By 18:00 PST, Uranus sextiles the Sun which is good for some pleasant surprises. Perhaps the workday works out a bit better than normal at the end? Or perhaps a chance encounter at a watering hole allows for some spirited good times. 19:00 PST brings Moon semisextile Saturn, so there's a good chance of that nagging feeling that we need to call it a night early and deal with some responsibilities, as much as we may want to avoid them. Finally, 21:00 PST and Eris sextile Mercury allows for some possible nice surprises in terms of an unexpected message, or perhaps an error in your favor? Or maybe an unexpected detour on the way home leads to a little bit of an adventure.
Wednesday really isn't my most favorite day, for varying reasons. Early morning aspects to watch out for are Ceres retrograde opposite Moon around Midnight PST, Pallas square Moon near 1:00 PST, and Sun conjunct Juno around 2:00 PST. There is that potential for some late night important discussions with the husband or wife or partner or whoever. Probably a gripe about the home that "just can't wait." It should pass, however.
Around wake-up and commute time, 5:00 PST's Moon semisextile Black Moon Lilith could point to us waking up from a rather bizarre dream. Take notes if you have time and can remember it. 6:00 PST's Mars sextile Moon gives us a boost of energy, and we might not need as much coffee to get up and running if we're fortunate. Around 10:00 PST, Moon semisextile Neptune guides us to use our intuition, and this is about a good time to be listening to our gut feelings about an important matter. Finally, after noon around 13:00 PST, Moon crosses the South Node. We might be reminiscing about something we'd rather cling to in the past, but now really isn't the time to be clinging to said past. We need to move on. Finally, to close the night out later on, Sun semisextile Chiron around 21:00 PST may bring up that thought from the past again. Take note of it, as it may be important once the Eclipse begins the next day.
Thursday is a celestial minefield as we enter Eclipse Day!Moon starts off as semisextile Pluto around Midnight PST and that may bring for some dramatic dream visions leading us to knowledge as to what to shed from our past. Jupiter square Moon around 4:00 PST has the potential of giving us some stern advice from a higher power, or a greatly disturbing dream. We may wake up feeling that we're not fulfilling our greater calling in some way.
Later on in the morning and into the mid-afternoon, we have a plethora of aspects to consider, including the big one. 7:00 PST's Uranus sextile Mercury brings some good favor for travel and communications, and should insulate us from sudden mechanical or technological failures slightly. Or if those failures happen, we may see right away what benefit we just had from it. (Think hitting a red light, preventing us from being sideswiped by someone running another red light one block down). 10:00 PST gives us Uranus sextile Moon and Moon conjunct Mercury and that can be an important vector in time where we get some unexpected good news! Moon conjunct Juno around 11:00 PST will also be pretty good for relationships with our families and loved ones. Could be news of a promotion or a bonus, as one possible example, leading to a vacation some months down the road. Around Noon PST, Moon semisextile Chiron warns us to be watchful about how we're feeling about matters for the rest of the day. Good advice, as the next hour brings the big event.
13:00 PST, the Solar Eclipse should be underway, and Ixion is sextile both the Sun and Moon during this Eclipse culmination. So basically, for this entire Eclipse cycle, we should have some insulation from betrayals and those that would take advantage of us. This will be especially true for the rest of the day here, and should greatly amplify our own personal power. A couple hours later, Saturn sextile Venus around 15:00 PST should build upon this, and should bring us a bit of power to complete tasks at work and get things done.
In the evening and into the night, 20:00 PST brings us Venus conjunct Nessus. We will want to be watchful and be careful of our obsessions with what we desire, lest we push too hard and force ourselves inappropriately towards our more carnal desires. On the other hand, if we're wise, we can harness this aspect and utilize some major focus to complete an important task for work, or to complete a personal project or hobby dear to us. All depends on how we use Venus-Nessus energy. Finally, to finish off the night, Mercury conjunct Juno while semisextile Chiron around 22:00 PST should allow for nighttime discussions with family and loved ones to go somewhat smoothly, though we may have to confront some uncomfortable truths. Could be something mundane as leaving the seat up. (Or, seems mundane to some... trust me, put the seat down and just keep the peace on this one).
Friday doesn't do a whole lot of major aspects overnight. Mainly, 7:00 PST is the first wave of aspects as Moon in Pisces sextiles Saturn and conjuncts Nessus. We might be able to discipline ourselves to not be too emotional on the way to work, and might be able to be a little more vigilant on the road too, perhaps. In other words, might insulate us from road rage. Maybe. Emotions can be a bit tricky during Pisces Moon. Ixion sextile Mercury at the same time points to this mitigation of raging emotions to be the case. Drivers and those who normally are harsh in their words might actually be a little more chill Friday morning.
Venus conjunct the Moon around 9:00 PST should gives us a bit more pride and more happiness at work. It's Friday, so that usually helps! Not to mention we might be thinking about plans with some loved ones later on? Ceres retrograde quincunx Moon around 10:00 PST suggests that you might want to make sure the home front is in order though, and you did turn the stove off, right?
Pallas sextile Moon around 14:00 PST should have us feeling a little bit wiser, and should give a bit more of a creative boost when dealing with finishing up work tasks. Black Moon Lilith sextile the Moon around 16:00 PST is useful for an intuitive boost.
Going into Friday night, Mars square Moon near 20:00 PST could lead to some unnecessary arguments. Make sure plans are put into place earlier when the energies are a little bit more conducive, and try not to be upset at sudden changes. Ceres retrograde quincunx Venus around 22:00 PST could lead to some awkward social situations too, so perhaps that plus the Mars-Moon square suggests that this isn't the night to meet someone new for a meaningful relationship. A short-term fling, maybe, but know what you're getting into. Moon square Vesta around 23:00 PST suggests to me that maybe just a night out with the guys or girls is the better course of action, as we could wind up feeling like we're being asked to do things we're not comfortable with. Actually, with those last three aspects, I'd recommend a low-key home night. I don't suggest Monopoly, as this is striking me as an increased "table-flipping" likelihood Friday night. Just watch a movie or something.
Saturday might gives us some strange or troubling dream visions as we have Mars square Neptune around 3:00 PST, and that definitely can set the stage for some intense arguments. 4:00 PST brings us Vesta trine North Node, and Mercury conjunct Sun. We'll be feeling a little more secure in the thought of being on the right path in some way, I think.
After people wake up on Saturday, around 10:00 PST, Pluto sextile Moon gives us a boost of energy that might be good for some morning cleaning up around the house, and Jupiter trine Moon later on around 14:00 PST should further bolster this. Could even be a good day for bargain hunting at markets, and we should be a little bit more lucid. Moon semisextile Eris around 15:00 PST points to potential trouble when it comes to some slight upsetting us, so try to keep your cool. This will be amplified more as Uranus semisextile Moon around 20:00 PST will be a stronger manifestation of this. Around 22:00 PST brings even more emotional catharsis with Chiron conjunct the Moon. Good chance of tempers and emotions being more inflamed, perhaps. Finally, 23:00 PST sees Ixion square the Moon and Juno semisextile the Moon. If there are problems related to infidelity (suspected or real), there's a good chance those arguments could come out now. I'd recommend being aboveboard in your dealings right now.
Finally, Sunday ratchets up some of the emotional intensity from the previous day, as Moon crosses fixed star Scheat around 3:00 PST. With the other harsh emotional aspects from Saturday night, there's a good chance of people saying the wrong thing around this time. 4:00 PST's Sun semisextile Moon further denotes a time where people could be at odds with others. Shortly after this, Moon crosses into fiery Aries, and this definitely points to some flaring tempers for much of the rest of the day.
Sunday evening isn't much easier as Moon squares Saturn and that points to some harsh criticisms and potential arguments. There's some possibilities of reconciliation, however, as around 18:00 PST, Ceres retrograde trines the Moon. After some cooling down, it's possible that Sunday dinner might actually be a little more civil. Finally, to finish up the week, Jupiter quincunx Eris around 23:00 PST suggests that we're feeling a bit more uncertain about whether we're on the right career path going into the next work week. Like we're not entirely in control going into a new week.
So there you have it, a high-powered week complete with a Solar Eclipse New Moon, and some potentialities regarding relationship arguments and possible infidelity indicators. Do be careful and do be above-board this week in your dealings with others. I'd really have to say trust your instincts, as there's going to be some ruffled feathers, and you just need to keep yourself centered to get through it all. And with all planets still direct, there's plenty of forward momentum to keep us going through it all. And on that note, I'm out. Peace out.
I"m going to say this right now: I did not forecast the Dow Jones sliding like it did yesterday. Stock prediction and market analysis isn't my thing. Analyzing astrology and the minor asteroids is my thing. I'm going to be very clear about something right now: Use my posts as financial prediction aids at your own peril. Trust me, if I knew how to fully harness that, I would be far more well off than I am right now. But perhaps I'm half kidding... or am I? Anyways, I tend to look on the more general side of things, I feel.
Enough lollygagging. Let's see what else Tuesday brings to the forefront.
Starting at Midnight PST, Moon square Bambi retrograde is in the air, and I have a feeling with the financial events of yesterday, some people monitoring retirement funds and other financial markets are getting that "deer in the headlights" look. Abundantia semisextile Leviathan retrograde acts as a trigger for ... a correction in the making perhaps, but do bear in mind, that's... minor asteroids... and Abundantia is in range of fixed star Algol... ...ouch. Did not see that one. Dudu retrograde quincunx Apophis is also bringing some of the crap back to smack us in our... ...just duck, okay? Let's move on.
1:00 PST brings us Moon opposite Cupido and semisextile Academia retrograde, and squares Kafka as well! Keep in mind Moon has entered Scorpio, so there's going to be some darker, more murky emotions hitting this right now. Be wary of Casanovas who are out for one thing, and if you're studying late for classes, always a good idea to travel in groups when able. That's what I'm feeling with this. As far as Kafka, don't expect dreams and our feelings tonight to be all that mundane. I'll be honest, I never read Franz Kafka's works, but something tells me I should remedy that soon.
Around 2:00 PST, Ceres retrograde trines Vesta and quincunxes Nemesis. No major planet aspect in tightest orb for this hour, so Ceres takes center stage as we sleep semi-soundly in our beds. Yet some of us may be kept awake wondering about a friend or other acquaintance, or perhaps rivals, who would invade our space. A guest making simmering trouble perhaps? (I"m kinda a guest myself right now, so I hope I'm not one of those). The trine is a little stronger, so more likely we'll be dreaming or having in the back of our minds some sort of faith or inner working of keeping our homesteads safe from potential enemies.
3:00 PST brings us more asteroid configurations, with Lamb square Juno, Academia retrograde trine Kafka, and Vesta square Nemesis. Lamb-Juno and Vesta-Nemesis are passing influences that warn us to be aware of that which would threaten our homes and loved ones, and that which we hold dear. Kafka-Academia, on the other hand, is an easier aspect that I think might be useful if any of us are burning the midnight oil and studying some off-the-wall topic perhaps. Perhaps reading this very blog entry... which would qualify, perhaps!
Further into the morning around 4:00 PST, Mercury semisextile Tyche and Moon semisextile Midas retrograde will be functioning as more triggers, and especially as it's 7:00 EST near Wall Street. Abundantia is also quincunx Ixion, and Ixion is with Galactic Center, so I'm going to speculate something here... that we're about to see more financial world news, and I'm going to say it's a safe bet there's some significant insider trading and short-selling going on right about now. I think someone's looking to make a profit here, but I don't have direct proof. You should follow actual financial advisors and also follow up with your own gut feeling about this, though don't misinterpret your gut. Easy to do when you're feeling anxiety. We could also be feeling a little bit of anxiety about our jobs and careers right now, but let's see what the rest of the day's aspects bring up. Do remember that Saturn and Pluto are both transiting Capricorn right now, a cardinal, earthy energy. (Yet all planets are also still direct, so bear that in mind too. This crash, if that's what's ramping up, won't last forever. Long game would be my recommendation.)
5:00 PST brings us some more asteroids with Desdemona sextile Hekate retrograde, and Fortuna retrograde quincunx Apophis. Listen to our inner wisdom and consider waking dream visions if you normally are waking up around this time. More market corrections possibly, or maybe something comes across that points to needing to tighten the belt in other ways. Perhaps you're just saving up for a rainy day, and expect some heavy rain soon. (Here in Western Washington, we could use a little less rain at the moment. Do a search on Snoqualmie Falls and you'll see why.)
As more of us wake up around 6:00 PST, Moon sextile Saturn becomes the first major aspect of the day. This will stabilize things, I believe, and should mute some of the market carnage. Our emotions will be ramped up a few notches with Moon conjunct Toutatis (an amplifier), and Cupido quincunx Academia retrograde could bring insights or dream visions of a romantic nature, perhaps? Somewhat amorous? I don't know for sure, or it could also be a pre-class romp... One that could scatter the brains of someone about to walk into a pop quiz. Don't lose your head.
The Moon features heavily around 7:00 PST when it opposes Pallas, semisextiles Karma, and squares Swindle. Our ability to discern proper wisdom and identify deception may be impaired, and there might be a lesson here to this. Could be a child lying to their parents about having completed their homework, whether out of embarrassment or fear of punishment. Or, could be an embellishment on a report for the office? Be aware and be focused. As we cross into 8:00 PST, Moon trines Nessus and semisextiles Lie as well, so perhaps we can lock onto the truth of the matter. Helps to be honest, so be aboveboard with your dealings today as much as you can.
9:00 PST brings us Mercury semisextile Black Moon Lilith, opposing Nymphe retrograde, and Moon semisextile Mars. Watch the road rage on the way to work. Some of that road rage could be thoughts in the back of the mind of possible infidelity as we consider Nymphe retrograde quincunx Black Moon Lilith and Aphrodite semisextile Eros. Romantic and sexual encounters are going to be in the back of the mind, and there's probably a few office romps going to happen. Maybe a few "favors" being done, if I may be so crass... Or perhaps a sex scandal is about to come out that rocks a few news cycles... Hard to say.
11:00 PST shows us Mercury opposite Ceres retrograde, so expect another news tidbit about some domestic squabble. Maybe a celebrity divorce? Very gross speculation on my part there, so take this with a grain of salt.
Noon PST gives us Moon sextile Pandora, Venus conjunct Kaalli, Moon sextile Medusa retrograde, Moon conjunct Radiocommunicata, Swindle semisextile Nessus, and Eris sextile Bologna. OK, that's a great deal. Moon's busy here, so the sextile to Pandora and Medusa retrograde and conjunction to Radiocommunicata tells me that there's definitely going to be a scandal come to light in the news today. Eris sextile Bologna tells me it's going to be someone we didn't expect, and Swindle semisextile Nessus gives me a hint that this could be an intentional leak or blowing of the cover to hurt someone. We'll see if I'm right about this.
13:00 PST gives us Venus semisextile Narcissus and conjunction to Kaali at the same time. Be careful as all that glitters is not gold, and there's a good chance that we could have something mar some beauty somewhere, whether we drop a priceless heirloom, or maybe our job is in question at this moment? Hard to say. Don't put all of your eggs in one basket when it comes to your self-worth, as there are many other ways to enhance said self-worth.
14:00 PST brings us Toutatis semisextile Sphinx and Kaali semisextile Narcissus. Enigmas about what makes us look good to ourselves and to others will play out throughout this hour. Some may be trying to rush to get a major project done, perhaps, but will it be enough? Is it the right implementation? You'll find out soon enough, depending on what aspects what.
Moon sextile Tyche and Black Moon Lilith while squaring Ceres retrograde and Nymphe retrograde around 15:00 PST could leave us feeling that our jobs are fulfilling us just a little bit better than our home life and our romantic or sexual partnerships (or lack thereof) around this time. A good time to dig down and put some focus on getting some school or office work done, or perhaps finishing off a cabinet if you're, say, a carpenter. A brief window where a job well done could make or break our day.
The late afternoon around 16:00 PST gets busy with Moon square Mercury, confusing some of our messages and how we come across to others just a bit. It won't be permanent damage though as Moon also trines Nemesis and semisextiles Vesta, which Vesta also sextiles Mercury at the same time. Don't take things too personal, as Destinn sextile Tyranossarus retrograde, Buysballot retrograde semisextile True Node, and Radiocommunicata sextile Pandora during this hour will help in mitigating the major communications damage to a small degree, and may even bring to light some problems that need to be addressed in our lives. Perhaps acting too aggressively or haughty before, for example, and perhaps an alright time to attempt a mea culpa. May want to wait a little bit for a major overture, but the problems will be brought to the open.
As the evening begins around 17:00 PST, Moon square Lucifer could have us feeling like our pride took a blow, and we might be licking our wounds over it. Medusa retrograde sextile Radiocommunicata and trine Pandora could also be showing up in the exposure of some hidden betrayal, and Nymphe retrograde quincunx Tyche, could be work-related. If someone's been talking behind your back in the office, it'll come out soon enough, probably about this time. Not just the office, but also school yards and at local watering holes. Again, be aboveboard in your relationships and this won't be as much of a problem, especially at this moment.
18:00 PST brings us another major aspect when Uranus sextiles Venus, a welcome shift into a slightly easier evening. Especially as we have Venus trine Lust retrograde, so we've got a chance at a sudden low-key date night. Moon square Fortuna retrograde could leave us feeling like we're going to break the bank, so keep it light on the wallet and skip the anxiety of going bust.
Into the night, 20:00 PST shows us Moon trine Apophis. Something apparently ended, and we might be able to feel a little bit better about it. Probably a point we realize we had to end something, or perhaps we realize an unhealthy connection is soon to be gone, and we can perhaps move on with our lives a little.
21:00 PST brings us Moon trine Jabberwock retrograde and Neptune in a Grand Trine. We'll be feeling some emotional relief in the slaying of a monster in our lives, perhaps the slaying of an illusion. Maybe one of our own delusions of grandeur just died a needed death, but do keep in mind that the repercussions can take some time to manifest if this is indeed the case for you. Pallas quincunx Karma and Ceres retrograde quincunx Black Moon Lilith at the same time suggest that this illusion shattering was a while in the making, and we finally have the wisdom to make it happen, though not without some regret on our part. Perhaps we also have a decision to make about where we call home. Maybe we're having that feeling in the back of our minds that we are called to go elsewhere... and where that is isn't clear yet. But soon.
The night draws to a close when Chiron sextiles Desdemona and Arachne conjuncts Eros around 22:00 PST, so do be aware of the ties that bind us, and it could be that we finally see past a he-or-she-demon that has vexed us in our romantic desires (or actualizations) in the past. Don't be surprised if you reminisce about that. Do be aware of anxiety overnight when around 23:00 PST we get Moon square Industria, Ceres retrograde quincunx Tyche, and the flip-side of Arachne conjunct Eros. Barring any sultry affairs threatening the homestead, we could be feeling more anxiety about the markets and what that means for keeping our jobs and homes, as an example. Hopefully dream visions going into Wednesday will bring us some good answers to deal with this.
So Tuesday is a rough-and-tumble day, and we can expect more anxiety regarding the financial markets, and of course what that means for our futures in general, that's what I'm feeling today. We should keep in mind that a lot of these problems should be temporary, so permanent solutions may not be necessary (and if they are, do keep in mind you don't have to break yourself with the piggy bank if that's what it comes to). We survived Monday. We'll survive Tuesday too. Off to bed with me now.
I'm going to attempt adding a few more asteroids into the mix for this one. Maybe too many? We'll see how this one goes. Been a busy weekend so no Weekly or Monthly report yet. To level with you, might be next month before I get to it again. Other real life matters keep getting in the way, and I'd like that to stop while I can take advantage of the all-planets direct energies SOMETIME!!! Getting frustrated. But disregard that.
This is going to be waaaaaay more comprehensive than normal. And the beginning stage of Monday as we begin with the spillover from this energetic weekend (which saw the victory of the Philadelphia Eagles for the first time since the Super Bowl began, actually, a true Cinderella story as they were without their starter Quarterback for much of the season! Don't count out underdogs.) ...anyways. Let's get to the aspects.
Midnight PST, as I was mentioning spillover, has a multitude of asteroids aspecting the major planets, so we'll focus on those first. Sun conjunct Gold pretty tightly is pretty indicative of the beginning of the week, and pretty much describes a time of championship, when we think of grabbing the gold. Only fitting. Moon forms a Yod as it apexes two quincunxes between Destinn in Taurus and Messalina in Pisces, so we can expect some fated emotions and repercussions from some lustful encounters from the weekend, perhaps. Or perhaps we're being set up for future conquests (or defeats?). Eris sextile Venus adds to a little bit of the chaos, but as it's an easier aspect, perhaps it plays into the chaos of the Moon Yod to Destinn/Messalina. Perhaps not so much of a romantic/lustful defeat as I may have initially thought. Mars conjunct Lie warns us to be aware of bold deception as we enter the new week. Jupiter opposite Lamb also serves as a warning to not be led to the slaughter, and to be aware of those who would fleece the meek. Saturn... is quite busy. Saturn trine Pallas and sextile Toutatis, while semisextile Swindle gives us an interesting mix of ease in exercising and using our wisdom when it comes to handling the important matters, and the sextile to Toutatis amplifies this somewhat. The semisextile to Swindle warns us to be on our toes for deceivers, so do be aware.
As far as the other asteroids coming out of the weekend, Pallas opposed Toutatis, giving us a wedge pattern involving Saturn. So that wisdom usage may run counter to some fated and dynamic events, and Pallas square Swindle itself suggests the dynamic events are related to deception. Leviathan retrograde quincunx Dejanira warns us to be aware of some real snakes in the grass swimming around us. Jabberwock retrograde quincunx Industria also warns us to be aware of some inner, beastly struggles as we reenter the work week. Pinocchio retrograde conjunct Hekate retrograde and trine Chiron may help us to be honest with ourselves, and perhaps we get some warnings and visions from overnight dream visions.
Nymphe retrograde, a sexual asteroid, makes a series of aspects... a conjunction to Ceres retrograde, opposition to Lucifer, and a quincunx to Apophis. So while there may be some hot action between the sheets (or maybe not?) at home, be certain that your lover (if this is what's going on in your life) isn't just using you to satiate their own desires, and make sure you're not setting yourself up for a downfall.
As far as the rest of the midnight asteroids, Toutatis semisextile Karma while Karma itself sextiles Swindle, and Dejanira semisextile Ixion round out the very beginning of Monday. Amplification of events working out as they have been set in motion to occur, and may lead to the revelation of falsehoods, especially if those deceivers don't keep their stories straight.
Moving on to 1:00 PST, Moon square Pluto is the first of the major aspects of the day. We're going to likely be feeling a bit frustrated about something or have some disturbing dream visions. Keep in mind Lucifer semisextile Apophis could denote this as being pride before a fall. Perhaps we saw a little of that yesterday? But then again, even the most capable are vulnerable of hubris.
2:00 PST brings us Moon square Tyrannosaurus retrograde, and Mercury semisextile Pandora. We must be careful not to let ourselves become the monsters we so despise, fitting for the previous hour's pride before a fall, and it's possible we receive some late-night messages that unleash some unsettling truths, or perhaps leave us with hope being left inside the proverbial box, just like the legend.
3:00 PST is rather low-key, mainly, with Kassandra retrograde trine Silver, and Ceres retrograde quincunx Apophis. We may be able to more easily discern advice that should be heeded regarding some of our own desires and possessions and perhaps money, while at the same time there is the chance of something within our homes and hearths being threatened in some way, perhaps a form of homestead self-sabotage. Ensure your dream-catchers are working properly.
4:00 PST brings us a mixed bag, but one that needs to be observed. Moon trine Juno gives us some easier, flowing feelings regarding our loved ones and family, and is a possible respite, but only briefly, from Mars square Nessus, which brings a dangerous possibility of an early morning or late night argument regarding ambitions and obsessions. Be very careful if in an unstable relationship for the next day or so. Bambi retrograde opposite Kafka may add to this, so be quite aware of potential threats coming out of left field. Or from within your own homestead.
As the morning progresses, we hit another aspect around 5:00 PST with Moon semisextile Jupiter. Possibility of some form of deliverance, or perhaps we have a more esoteric dream vision grant us some wisdom regarding a spiritual, or legal, or maybe career matter... or maybe a stroke of luck that makes us feel a little bit better about things? Moon quincunx Lamb around the same time, however, could leave us feeling like a lamb to the slaughter... or perhaps it could relate to the dream vision regarding one referred to as a lamb, and I'll leave that to your own interpretation. Ceres retrograde opposite Lucifer may build on this just slightly.
As we wake up around 6:00 PST, Moon trine Bologna helps us a little in feeling capable of discerning lies and tall tales just a little bit better. Vesta semisextile Black Moon Lilith around the same time should bring a little bit of esoteric wisdom to decipher some of the dream visions regarding falsehoods we may have been exposed to overnight. Typhon square Swindle adds to this and warns us to be aware of further falsehoods. At this time of the morning, it's likely to be coming from our radios and television sets, to be honest, as news and morning commentary programs are the most likely vectors I can think of in general.
7:00 PST brings us Moon opposite Eris and that could mean trouble for the morning commute, or perhaps a bit of a scramble to get homework done as we're on or waiting for the morning school bus? Emotions aren't likely to be stable for a bit. Cupido square Bambi retrograde could also rear its ugly head as we might be thinking about something with our relationships, sexual or romantic in nature, which goes along with that Eris-Moon opposition, and would be enough to knock even the most emotionally-stable person off-kilter. Abundantia square Nike could point to us being unable to really get-up-and-go when it comes to our work day starting, so don't expect to accomplish much out of the gate. Aphrodite semisextile Arachne around the same time adds in to that earlier romantic/sexual conundrum, and I'm beginning to think feelings about relationships or lack thereof are why we're having the trouble of get-up-and-go this morning.
Fortunately, around 8:00 PST, we have Moon trine Venus, which should help us with some of the emotional drain from the last hour or so, and then we also have Nemesis sextile Black Moon Lilith, so that should give us some confidence boost to deal with some potential adversaries we're dealing with as we head to or are entering the office to start the new workweek. Mercury square Radiocommunicata plays into those previous hours' warnings about lies and deceptions coming from the airwaves, and that's what I'm thinking this entails. Workplace communications are also likely to be a bit contentious, so do be warned that we're not going into this with the best communications environment. Maybe we're heading back to work with Patriots fans while we were rooting for the Eagles? Don't set the office on fire, please.
9:00 PST brings us Jupiter square Juno, which is offset somewhat by Moon crossing fixed star Spica. Could be a bit of a matter of who brings home the bacon, so to speak, but speak truthfully and candidly, and you might be able to defuse the situation with your loved ones. Hekate retrograde trine Chiron also helps with some potential healing of some psychic landmines, some of which we've all but certainly laid for ourselves. Do be warned that Lie square Nessus is in the air around this time as well, so do be aware of manipulations to preserve the status quo. Later on, Moon quincunx Narcissus at 10:00 PST further adds fuel to the fire to save face. People are seeming a bit predisposed to saving their ass today, judging from asteroids so far...
11:00 PST ratchets up the energy level as we get Moon opposite Uranus, which will make for some explosive and sudden emotional outbursts. It could be something related to more relationship drama, which may be resolving around this time, with Moon trine Lust retrograde. Watch out for workplace romances around now, if you're involved with one. Typhon semisextile Karma also plays into this a bit, so if you don't have one of those workplace relationships going on, you might be alright. Or maybe some other setup for something underneath the surface is coming to light.
The Moon gets busy around noontime PST when it quincunxes Sedna retrograde and Desdemona retrograde, both around Algol, and the Moon also squares Pinocchio retrograde and Hekate retrograde. Do not take anything at face value for the next couple of hours, especially your own feelings on important matters.
13:00 PST brings us Leviathan retrograde opposite Ixion, so do be aware of any inner self-sabotage or self-betrayal. If something feels off to you, make sure you know it's actually off and not just paranoia setting in.
14:00 PST brings us more aspects with the Moon. Moon does sextile Ixion and trines Nike and Leviathan retrograde for a grand trine, helping us navigate some psychic minefields involving those who would betray us, but do be careful for Moon quincunx Abundantia as that could point to some unease with our means of attracting wealth and career goals.
15:00 PST brings Moon semisextile Dejanira, a warning against feeling overly victimized, or conversely we may inadvertently do something to make someone else feel uncomfortable, probably with Mercury quincunx Medusa retrograde rearing its ugly head. Do be sure not to needlessly say something that reveals some inner ugliness. Might be someone else that says it, though. At any rate, this will probably be mitigated somewhat by Vesta conjunct fixed star Antares for the next couple hours, which will be helpful in bolstering our own wisdom in dealing with troubling matters. Leviathan retrograde trine Nike, and Ixion also sextiling Nike at the same time allows us a little more good energy in dealing with psychic miscreants.
17:00 PST brings us Pholus sextile Silver, so maybe a good day to share a happy hour brew with some coworkers/colleagues. Desdemona does conjunct Sedna exactly around this point as well, so do be aware of the possibility of some craziness involving father figures and male partners. That conjunction goes on well past 18:00 PST, but, Desdemona and Sedna retrograde are also sextiling Pinocchio retrograde, so there's a good chance a charlatan can be exposed and sent packing before he can do too much damage.
Into the evening around 19:00 PST, Moon sextile Aphrodite and square Arachne could lead to a fun romantic encounter, just be careful you don't get more ensnared than you're ready for.
Further on into the night, 20:00 PST sees Moon trine Kassandra retrograde which allows our inner voice to warn us or perhaps just simply guide us to be careful about guarding our hearts and souls. Pallas opposite Typhon around the same time gives us a challenge in using our inner wisdom to be aware of hidden dangers. We'll need that wisdom as Nymphe retrograde is playing her games with a trine to Vesta and a quincunx to Nemesis. Use that earlier inner wisdom to guard yourself and play smartly when perhaps meeting "The One," but it just as well could blow up in our faces later on when we find out we found a potential adversary. Or perhaps a few of us will just settle for the instant gratification of some more questionable Internet-based "visual aids." Don't get too enthralled.
We'll end with 21:00 PST with Moon trine Silver and sextile Pholus, while Pluto opposites Tyrannosaurus retrograde. This is a good time to summon our inner strength and conquer some inner demons, perhaps through some form of meditation or self-discipline, or throwing ourselves into a loved hobby.
So Monday has a lot of energy in store for us, and I think I may have engaged in a bit of information overload. Don't get too caught up in all of the details, but just remember that the major planet aspects are the main meat and potatoes of what's going on, while the asteroid-to-asteroid aspects are just a little bit of spice onto the already extensive main course. I think I'll need to come up with a better system for denoting the major aspects versus the minor aspects, especially for asteroids that don't aspect major planets. I may opt to disregard those at times. I'm still getting around to finishing some of my more graphical tools to help with this, so in time I think we'll see some improvement in this. But this took way longer than I expected. Hopefully this will be pertinent to everyone though. Until the next article!
I'll be fast. Really tired, but will do what I can. Also my dad's birthday. Wish him a happy one!
We start Friday with Moon square Vesta at 1:00 PST. This will be followed shortly after by Moon quincunx Lucifer at 2:00 PST. Some give and take needed with the traditional and structured, and how it conflicts with our own pride and how we feel about things. Could lead to dream visions involving courts or governments in some cases, perhaps.
Shortly after, 3:00 PST brings us Pallas quincunx Mars, and Moon trine Black Moon Lilith. We may know what's wise to do, but we don't seem to be willing to do it all that well, but want to go on our own other paths. We may be feeling a bit of intuition telling us that it'll work out. Will it? A few ways to find out. Do it, or don't do it. Or consider the ramifications. Most likely, just going to do it.
As we wake up, Ceres retrograde semisextile Moon around 6:00 PST could bring to light how we feel about our home situation, or perhaps we notice something while going out the door about something we need to do regarding the home. Maybe a small fix-it job needs to be done when you get back home in the evening? Or during the weekend? Not that too much will get done during the Big Game. (Maybe one team gets their first ring... I hope. Might give us some hope to shoot for, but hey...)
Around Noon PST, Moon semisextiles the North Node. Something will trigger a way we feel about our current situation, one way or another. A mild bit of examining how we can get around some of our issues, or perhaps we just reflect on it and see how we feel about it. Personally, I'm not feeling too happy about a personal situation, but that's just me. North Node's on my own Part of Fortune right now too, so yeah, I'm feeling a bit of personal power struggle. I just have to deal with it. Enough about me though.
At 14:00 PST, Pluto semisextile Venus triggers some more reflection about how things have been going in relationships and on the job lately, or in some other more creative pursuits. We feel something's missing. Perhaps it's time that we're missing to deal with some objectives we want to pursue. It'll come.
Into the evening around 19:00 PST, Destinn trine Moon helps us feel out our greater destiny and fate. We might be feeling better about things, all things considered. We'll get a greater boost an hour later or so around 20:00 PST (8:00 PM) when Hekate retrograde trines Dejanira, and Moon trines Pluto. This is about a time to listen to our inner voice, our inner intuition, see where we've been brought down before, and realize we have more power to get past these issues than we give ourselves credit for. At the very least, we might have some minor victory regarding a rough and tumble problem in our lives.
Still, a little later on, Moon quincunx Venus around 21:00 PST might make for some awkward date nights? Or perhaps we might be working on a creative project or art project, maybe a writing project... and we might get writer's block, or not like what we were doing and just start over? But this is a passing feeling, so if you're feeling dissatisfied, I'd say just brush it aside for a bit and come back to it tomorrow, see how you feel then.
Finally, to finish off Friday before Midnight PST, really around 23:00 PST, Moon sextile Jupiter brings us a bit of luck and good feelings regarding our station in life, or at the very least we feel blessed in some way. Perhaps there's a solution to the creative problem that starts forming in our minds before we turn in for the night. Or, perhaps we're just vegging out and watching a thought-provoking movie, or something that makes us feel good. A good point to relax.
So Friday winds up being a little bit more low-key, and with the Moon in Virgo all day, we'll be able to harness some analytical power to get us through some of the more dicey parts of the day. Don't worry too much, as I think many things will work themselves out. And I'll try to get much of a February monthly forecast up this weekend somehow. For now, much needed rest calls. Peace.
It's the day after the Leo Lunar Eclipse, and things are still supercharged. At the same time, it's easy to experience overload depending on what's happening around you right now. I'm starting to feel it, so in a way I'm taking it a little easy. Sometimes you have to take a little rest and come back stronger. Let's get to this.
Thursday begins February with a Moon trine to Uranus around 3:00 PST. This gives us an air of feeling a little more in control, in knowing how we want to change gears and shift directions, and in a way we become masters of our destiny overnight. Note dream visions and see what paths are available to you once you interpret them.
4:00 PST brings us a trio of aspects, with Pluto semisextile Juno, Sedna retrograde squared by the Moon, and Moon quincunx Chiron at the same time.. In our dream state, or just after is, we could have a little bit of a gruff morning with loved ones, and family could come to light and mind and there are issues we're going to have in the back of our minds for much of the morning. Perhaps dealing with these is the unexpected paths that may show up just a little before this... if so, perhaps there is a beneficial answer that may or may not be immediately apparent. Take a step back and consider all of the angles before snapping a partner's head off.
A short time later around 5:00 PST, the Moon squares Dejanira. Victim mentality has a greater chance of rearing its ugly head. Gentlemen, put the seat down if you're using the bathroom very early in the morning. Morning toilet baptisms are one possibility of all of this morning's aspects manifesting that you'd really just rather avoid. I jest, partially, but that's the kind of thing we have going on here with this Moon-Dejanira link: Even if everything seems innocent, a disagreement is more likely to spark now. It was likely not purely a spontaneous thing if it happens, and if you sidestepped it, roll with it. In other words, be aware if things have been brewing under the surface, and it's more likely to boil over. This should pass relatively quickly.
Still later on around 6:00 PST, Moon semisextile Hekate retrograde can bring some hidden knowledge to light from within. Again, remember dreams if you can, and listen to your inner intuition this morning.
Sun semisextile Neptune around 10:00 PST gets our mental motors going, and we could be encountering some interesting mind puzzles, or engaging in some mental gymnastics this morning. Take note of what comes to mind, as there's some illusory shenanigans likely coming to light here. Not good or bad, it's just there. Could be something as benign as solving a crossword while on the bus to a morning math class, for one example. See what solutions to complex problems you can come up with.
Around 11:00 PST, Destinn square Venus and Moon crossing into Virgo while crossing fixed star Regulus is likely to bring us to a fated destiny point. The moon is still technically full from yesterday, though that's waning, and it's still supercharged from the eclipse energies. There could be some question and struggle about what's going on with our relationships and money-making matters, as well as pursuit of material comforts around this time. But, there is that window of opportunity to take advantage of it. Just make sure you know what's up and don't set yourself up to fail. Try not to grow despondent if things don't go to plan. Moon trine Pholus around Noon PST helps insulate us from being too doped up on caffeine or other intoxicants around this time, so we should be thinking a little more clearly, so that may help things slightly. As Moon's in Virgo by that point, our thinking and feelings will be going to the more analytical side, and we may be susceptible to suggestion. Do keep that in mind.
Eris sextile Kaali at its tightest point around 14:00 PST, in the afternoon,, this signifies a mild control over the chaos of the day. We can take small advantage of the chaos of the situation and perhaps we can use this to further advance solutions to what vexes us. Thus, bringing us back to order. Think of shifting chaos' weight against itself and toppling it into a river. Like Robin Hood besting Little John.
15:00 PST can get a little dicey when we see Apophis conjunct Nessus in Pisces, at the same time Moon in Virgo quincunxes Mercury in Aquarius. There's a danger that a misunderstood message could lead to struggle regarding our obsessions, or we have trouble with someone who wants to be more than just a friend, perhaps, and we don't know how to tell them "no." Well... say "no" anyways. And if it destroys an acquaintanceship, then it likely was meant to end at that point. Sometimes you gotta cut loose to grow. Sorta like trimming a bonsai plant. Only the bonsai plant is our less-than-healthy relationships. Don't cut a healthy branch for the sake of cutting branches, though. Get all of the accurate info you can, first. And that could be difficult right now, so double-check.
Into the evening, Pallas trine Moon while the Moon squares Mars in Sagittarius around 18:00 PST gives a double-whammy of exercising some wisdom, while at the same time throwing us some emotional and psychic land mines. Again, we need to know when to hold and when to fold. And again, this could be about the time unhealthy relationships or those that no longer serve us get pruned. The chances for a boatload of anger and road rage, among other aggressive tendencies, very likely to be amplified at this point. But Pallas and Moon in that flowing trine can help temper this with some wisdom. Very shortly after, we do also see Moon square Karma and trine Saturn going into 19:00 PST. ...so again, things coming full-circle, to fruition, and some resolve in handling it is coming to mind. Honestly, with that earlier Moon quincunx Mercury, it could even be an avoidance of confrontation where we stay away or break ties, and don't even say a word to the other party. And sometimes, that's what you have to do to move on. In short, some endings highly likely, and elevated chances of miscommunication or noncommunication, if not outright ghosting. Don't expect pure logic to play out entirely.
Going into the night, from around [i]21:00 PST, to past 22:00 PST, Moon opposes Nessus more tightly first, followed by Apophis, both of those asteroids in mutable, watery Pisces. Again, a cutting away of relationships and emotional ties. There's a good chance we may even be doing some of this cutting because we feel too obsessed or attached to something or someone. Consider your future growth when coming to these decisions. Or, perhaps current circumstances don't allow you to maintain a healthy link. In that second case, perhaps later on works better, but for now, work on yourself.
The first day of February, therefore, proves to be quite potent. Don't lose heart, and follow your intuition. Make sure those voices in your head giving you advice is actually yours, or at least, truly beneficial, and I think you'll be fine. Use your head, and protect your heart. That's the lesson of today. Cheers.
Here we are... Lunar Eclipse Day! Be ready for anything, and brace yourself for superintensity!
We'll start with Moon quincunx Black Moon Lilith around 2:00 PST. There's a bit of a discordant energy here between this hypothetical point and the Moon itself, which is in overdrive. Dream visions are likely to be very intense around this time.
At 3:00 PST, Sedna retrograde opposite Dejanira brings feelings of internal sabotage and of betraying ourselves. Perhaps we're sabotaging ourselves in some way. Be aware of this, and note this as something to overcome.
Karma square Apophis around 4:00 PST also points to endings in our lives that are fated, and those that we have brought upon ourselves. "As we sow, so shall we reap." Sometimes it's hard to let go of things we've grown comfortable with, but at times, it's for our own good.
Finally, Eclipse Hour. As the eclipse article states, we've got some hyperintense aspects going o with the moon, with Ceres retrograde and Nymphe retrograde conjunct the Moon, and Industria conjunct the Sun during the period of greatest intensity at 5:26:40 PST. The linked article in this paragraph can give you a greater breakdown of this exact moment in time. Make the most of the energies!
A couple hours later, when the eclipse is ending, Dejanira trine Chiron and Moon quincunx Neptune around 7:00 PST will enact some potential healing from the earlier self-sabotage vibes involving Sedna, yet at the same time we're still under the dreamy and illusory qualities in the psychic atmosphere following this Eclipse, especially with that off-kilter link to the planet of illusions. Be aware of your own feelings and thoughts, as things may not be what they seem.
11:00 PST brings us Pholus semisextile Mercury, and the Moon making it's tightest conjunction to the North Node. Make sure you're thinking and communicating as clearly as you can with others, and don't get too enthralled into what's in the coffee cup. You need to look at things with sober vision right now, and while I'm not talking alcohol in this instance (though that also applies), you need to not overcharge yourself with stimulants either. Intoxication is intoxication in this instance. At the same time, our own inner emotions and psychic energies are going to be at peak right now.
Into the afternoon we'll be feeling some high-powered concerns and contemplating our options when Moon opposes Venus around 15:00 PST. We may be wondering if we really are on the right path towards what we desire, if we're doing enough, if there's more we should be pursuing to propel our jobs and relationships further. 16:00 PST amplifies this with Destinn square the Moon, and we'll be looking at our own lives, and probably wondering if we'll be pulling off everything we want to do before the sands of our hourglasses run out. Honestly, we're going to soon have to make some decisions that may involved flipping the damned hourglass and resetting things a bit. That's a gut feeling of mine not based on any particular aspect, so consider that an intuitive piece of advice.
Into the evening around 18:00 PST, Saturn sextile Apophis and Moon opposite Juno (man, Moon is making a few oppositions today...), well, that earlier destruction aspect with Karma-Apophis may become a bit more clear as to why when the disciplinarian and taskmaster of our starsystem makes that easier sextile. We could come into information that lets us know why it had to happen. At the same time, the Moon opposition to the asteroid of partnerships and family, well, it could be hard to explain something to the kids, as one example, or maybe you wind up having to break a date with your boyfriend or girlfriend? It could just be something as benign as a change of plans to something that's not quite as fun as you wanted to do initially. You can still have a fun evening, but don't expect everything to go to plan then. Especially as Moon quincunxes Pluto around an hour later at 19:00 PST. We're still going to be wondering if things really had to be let go like they were.
At night, Moon square Jupiter around 21:00 PST brings even more discord in our feelings, this time relating our luck and our higher spirituality, maybe even some career issues. Again, "is this all there is" comes forth. Take stock in what comes to you around this time, and start making plans to get past, through, and around it. But we may not be able to act on those feelings quite yet. The time will come, maybe this weekend? We're feeling a bit overloaded at the moment, and that's OK under most circumstances.
Finally, to finish off January, Moon opposing Kaali around 23:00 PST supercharges some of our more uneasy feelings. Write down what you need to accomplish, and put it out of your mind for overnight if you can, that's what I recommend. Rest, try to relax, and get some good sleep because we're going to need whatever recharging we can get. It may not be the most restful sleep, and it's easy to stay up all night wondering about things, but try to relax. Some good tea or warm milk may be needed.
Lunar eclipse day is, as you can see, highly intense, and we're not going to have too many respites on this day alone. But keep it together as much as you can, as we'll have many opportunities to take advantage of the hypercharged energies in the weeks and months ahead. Off to bed now, so adios.
Overnight we have Uranus square Moon at 3:00 PST, which will bring some interesting and intense dream visions. This is likely to be a restless night, so have that coffee or tea ready in the morning. I'm going to need it, and so are you. A little later on though, we have Moon sextile Sedna retrograde and trine Chiron at 4:00 PST. Perhaps in the dreamscape we have some epiphanies as to what to do about a vexing, troubling situation.
6:00 PST brings us Moon conjunct Hekate retrograde, so while we're getting ready to wake up (many of us, anyways), we may have had some further dream visions about decision paths to make, or perhaps some esoteric stuff like levitating in a dream. Remember as many dream clues as you can, as there's a lot inside yourself right now that you need to look into unlocking if we're going to get through the rest of this week. This year perhaps. Month, definitely.
Sedna retrograde sextile Chiron exact around 7:00 PST could have us waking up to some relief from recent betrayals, as minor as the relief may be. Hopefully it will be enough for us to begin or enhance healing. If there hasn't been a recent betrayal, perhaps a morning swim is in the itinerary?
9:00 PST we see our challenging aspect of the day, Moon opposite Mercury. Not the greatest of aspects right now, but one we must deal with. Communications are not likely to be very clear, and drivers on the road are likely not to be very awake right now. Give yourself some extra time to get to work if you see this in time. Make sure your messages to coworkers and loved ones are clear, and triple-checking what you're saying around now is advised.
Later on in the afternoon, around 14:00 PST, Pallas sextile Apophis may bring some kind of wisdom regarding something to be eliminated, something that may be paining you a bit and is distracting you from securing a better life for yourself, or detrimental to keeping what you need to survive and be stable. We can overcome this a little bit better with this minor energy.
15:00 PST gives us an easier aspect to deal with, Moon trine Mars. At this time we'll likely have a little bit of a confidence boost, and keep in mind that Moon has now entered Leo in preparation for it's shrouding by the Earth as it is eclipsed overnight. We can finish the workday on a strong and positive note for the most part, so make the most of it!
16:00 PST: Pallas square Moon may bring us a little bit of trouble when the afternoon fog hits some of us, and we might be feeling just a little bit unwise or unsure about how to proceed with using the knowledge we've gained in our travels. Take a few deep breaths, and we should be fine.
Before the evening commute at 17:00 PST, Moon trine Karma should be useful for feeling like we're on the right path, gaining what we're working so hard for. If not that, then perhaps we receive a little bit of good news that makes us feel a little bit better about something else in our lives, maybe a new direction we'll be going towards soon enough after this eclipse season winds up?
Into the nighttime hours, Moon quincunx Nessus around 20:00 PST could be problematic. We might want what we want right now, but we are a bit hyped up with the upcoming eclipse energies, and it's really easy to obsess over some key details. Pop in a movie or crack open a book and chill. Or, maybe some meditation to calm the mind (highly recommended).
Finally, as we end the day near 23:00 PST, Moon trine Vesta will bring us some comfort in us achieving our higher ideals, and what we hold sacred to ourselves. Vesta, the sacred flame, is in Sagittarius, and while in Jupiter's sign points to a greater drive towards us connecting to the divine, or our higher selves, or perhaps just our own volition. Whatever works for you.
Tuesday's quite a day. Super-intense, right before the hyper-intense day after this one. If you're lucky enough to be on the West Coast and have a break in the clouds overnight, you may get a glimpse of the eclipse. I'm likely not going to be awake, and I'm up entirely too late as it is. Morning comes early, so I draw this to a close tonight. Peace.
Once again, we are entering Eclipse Season, and it's going to be a blast! For this one, I don't have charts uploaded, so we'll be relying on me doing descriptions for this one. This may change if I get time to create the chart files and upload them. For this Lunar Eclipse, we'll be focusing more on the most exact aspects during the Eclipse.
The Lunar Eclipse itself will take place around 5:26:40 on January 31, 2018. This gives us the most exact Lunar Eclipse aspects at peak intensity, when the eclipse itself should be in its penumbral phase. Keep in mind that a Lunar Eclipse is basically a supercharged Full Moon... and with this being a Blue Moon (More a calendar thing, second Full Moon in a calendar month), and a Super Moon (closest point to Earth, so bigger than normal), this is a rare Lunar Eclipse combination. Honestly, whatever happens with this one, I'm going to say it's going to aspect us for a full year. It's going to be that potent.
Also, a reminder: all planets are direct during this Lunar Eclipse! So this Lunar Eclipse is at even higher intensity for that reason alone. All Direct Planets-Supermoon-Blue Moon-Blood Moon. Wednesday is going to be a blast. Make the most of it!
The primary Lunar Eclipse aspects within the tightest orbs appears to be Lunar Eclipse conjunct Nymphe retrograde and Ceres retrograde, and opposite Industria, itself conjunct the Sun. A weak opposition between the Lunar Eclipse and Venus also exists by about a 5 degree orb. This is going to be an emotionally intense period where we reflect on our home situations, as well as our inner sexual desires, and how our outward industriousness or career aspects play into this.
On a personal note for myself, I just started a new job and am commuting quite a ways to get to and from it, which does not leave me much time at all to deal with any "home" matters or any relationship matters, sexual or otherwise. As eclipse energies are active some ways before the actual event of the eclipse, I've been feeling this build up. This is one brief example how Eclipses can impact us. In my case, the Moon part of the eclipse is in the tail end of my 8th house (Placidus system), and squares my Moon/Chiron in Taurus and my Uranus in Scorpio (effectively a Grand Cross by transit). I'm already feeling the heavy emotional toll from everything and also, frankly, I have no idea where all of this is going to need. Preparing myself to be able to expect the unexpected, as it were. More like, "Expect nothing, be ready for anything. Anything will happen." But enough about me.
As far as the messenger of the gods during this Eclipse... Mercury is literally in the last minute of the last degree of Capricorn, about to enter Aquarius, and that is going to shift our communications and travel heavily. Last degree of Capricorn tells me that we will be impacted emotionally and psychically by news about markets, money, our net worth, our careers (as Capricorn is the 10th sign of the Zodiac and ruled by Saturn, and Aquarius, being the 11th sign, is co-ruled by Saturn and Uranus). Enjoy whatever stability you may have, as I think we are going to see dramatic changes soon.
Beyond the last degree implications of Saturn during this Lunar Eclipse, Mercury conjuncts Kafka (off-sign in Aquarius), quincunxes Kassandra retrograde in Cancer, squares Cupido in Taurus, and semisextiles Pholus. This is a tricky combination. Kafka tells me that we are going to be hearing some interesting and offbeat news for the next several months, and we may not know how that makes us feel. Kassandra in quincunx, we're going to be feeling a nagging feeling that we know something wasn't right, or is about to happen, and yet we keep it to ourselves, not believing that anyone will believe us. Cupido square Mercury? That's a whole other can of worms, where our more lustful desires may hoist us by our own petards if we're not careful. We're not likely to be communicating all that clearly when it comes to said lustful ambitions. And Pholus? Intoxication could lead to some pretty awkward combinations of issues, and likely will be a trigger for some of the incidences that come from Mercury, Kafka, and Cupido. Use your head a bit and you should be OK.
Venus during the Eclipse culmination semisextiles Messalina in Pisces, and quincunxes Buysballot retrograde in Cancer. So Venus has a bit of a water sign interaction here, and we may be feeling a bit hot to trot. the quincunx to Buysballot retrograde seems to indicate that we'll need to "bribe ourselves" to feel like we have something to offer potential suitors. It's very likely more scandals about famous figures buying lust will come to light. (With the Sedna on Algol years happening right now, it's a given). Don't spend more than you feel you should on something that may be just a passing fling. Unless you're into that, then in that case, don't spend too much.
Mars carries quite a bit of interesting energies this Lunar Eclipse cycle. Mars conjuncts Lie and Sphinx, sextiles Swindle, Midas and Academia retrograde, trines Bambi retrograde, and is quincunx Pallas. Forceful deception is going to come to the forefront. I'm going to just say that right now. But with the other aspects, this isn't a bad thing entirely. Swindle, Bambi, and Academia retrograde could bring to a conclusion some form of higher education sex scandal (which we have going on right now with the U.S. Gymnastics fiasco!), and the trine to Bambi suggests that some resolution will come to those who are unable to defend themselves or have been victimized in some way. The quincunx to Pallas, that's the dicey one. Justice may or may not be served, or there could be some miscarriage of justice that doesn't last too terribly long (though any length of time is not good). Make sure all legal paperwork and proceedings are in order, and expect some high impact court cases involving the themes of victimization, compensation, and deception.
Jupiter... not much to say here. Jupiter square Bologna, opposite Lamb, and trine Tyrannosaurus retrograde... This is going to be one of those rough ones where we see deceptions among the more ecclesiastical organizations come out, or among some prestigious companies or institutions. More fleecing of the general public I believe is coming about, but it's not all doom and gloom as Tyrannosaurus retrograde may bring about a retreat of said tyrants from the spiritual and corporate worlds. More downfalls will come, which won't be a bad thing as tyrants don't need to be ruling us, frankly.
Saturn is a fun one for this cycle. Saturn, of course in its home sign of Capricorn, has three sextiles, to Apophis in Pisces, and Toutatis and Typhon in Scorpio. Saturn squares Midas in Libra, and semisextiles Lie and Karma in Sagittarius. Ok, let's start with the good news, the sextiles. Basically, Saturn is apexing a Minor Grand Trine, a more spiritual or introspective version of a Grand Trine, more intellectual, and it's doing this to the asteroids of Destruction on one side, and some major amplification on the other. Saturn in this case may be mitigating some damage from the goings on, and this also means that Toutatis/Typhon are trine Apophis. I would venture to say... don't expect World War III in the next several months or a total financial collapse. That Saturn-Midas square says its not going to be a major picnic regarding our economics, however. Some are going to be judged and found wanting, and I'm going to project that cryptocurrencies will not be the fast fix for a lot of people. Just my initial thought on this. (If I'm wrong, so be it). Lie and Karma in a semisextile tells me that a scandal of some kind, likely related to the abuse of funds, is going to come about. Could be a stock scandal, or insider trading scandal. Maybe a bribery/kickback scandal. Be aboveboard with your financial dealings, and I think you'll be alright. But don 't expect an easy time of it.
Rebellious Uranus has its hands full for the next several months as well, emotionally. Uranus sextiles Nike in Aquarius and Lust retrograde in Gemini, but also quincunxes Dejanira in Scorpio and semisextiles Desdemona and Sedna retrograde (itself on Algol) in Taurus, and semisextiles Chiron in Pisces.. Uranus will bring a flow where we can have some sudden progress in getting goals done, just do those and get those out of the way when you can. Lust retrograde, well, not sure if we're going to see people suddenly join monasteries and convents, but I think some will be turning the more lustful vibes inward in unexpected ways. Maybe sudden Fifty Shades-style kinks? ...Never read the book. No plans to either. Anyways... Uranus quincunx Dejanira is going to bring some sudden and awkward situations where we could find ourselves the target of some unwanted attention, so do be very careful and be aware of your surroundings and who you are around. Not everyone will act predictably, especially in the next few weeks after this eclipse. The semisextiles could bring some sudden wounding or sudden healing, and... Look, I'm going to be honest. It's more likely wounding, so shield yourselves and do not let yourselves get into a position to be betrayed. Desdemona has asteroid number 666, and can symbolize some diabolical energies. Sedna, we are in a dangerous point where we could ultimately betray ourselves and lose our own heads, especially with that dwarf planet on malicious Algol. Be aware and be in control. That's how you can get through this period as far as that's in concerned. And embrace the chaos if you have to. Order is nice, but it doesn't always get the job done.
Neptune, while not directly aspecting a whole lot, could bring trouble. Neptune quincunx both Fortuna retrograde (not to be confused with the Part of Fortune) and Dudu retrograde in Leo, and by a slightly larger orb, the Lunar Eclipse itself!. Dot your I's, cross your T's, and make sure you have all of the facts before going towards major financial ventures. Fortuna and Dudu together suggests some trouble brewing with fortune, and some unscrupulous BS going on. If it's too good to be true, it is. Don't fall for it.
Pluto, thankfully, is a bit low-key as far as number of exact aspects, but still could trigger something interesting. Pluto in Capricorn (yes, same time as Saturn, I know...) semisextiles Bologna and Juno in Aquarius,, which strikes me as deception in partnerships leading to the demise or restructuring of those partnerships. If you've had some problems or some suspicions regarding a partner, you may want to get aboveboard and figure out what's going on... like, now.
Can't forget Chiron. Chiron sextiles Abundantia/Eros/Sedna retrograde, trines Dejanira, squares Lust retrograde, and semisextiles Nike and Uranus. We already covered Uranus-Chiron a bit, but the others bear mentioning. Chiron sextile the Abundantia/Eros/Sedna retrograde forms a minor grand trine (Eros on one side, Abundantia/Sedna on the other), so if you're careful, there could be a small degree of sexual healing. Or at the very least, you may avoid falling victim to a trap. The Chiron-Dejanira trine supports this as well, though as I should point out, human free will can override astrological aspects, whether easy or hard. Be alert. Lust retrograde and Chiron could derail things, so don't let your libido rip you a new one.
That's pretty much where we're at with the Lunar Eclipse. It's a big one. It's intense, it's... I'd go as far as to call it a Hypermoon eclipse, with the all-direct planets and the other qualities of the Full Moon itself, Supermoon and all. This will be one for the record books, and I think we're going to see some significant drama unfold in the next few weeks. I'm not saying head for the hills, but maybe have some popcorn ready (or brace for impact, depending on what side of the movie screen of life you're on). Until next time, cheers.
Time flies when you're trying to get to the fun stuff. Making this another quick one. Wasn't able to get to a weekend report, and hoping to have a full week one (for Tuesday through Sunday) up tomorrow night. Remember that we have the Lunar Eclipse Wednesday on the 31st, so be ready! And here we go!
Monday, we begin overnight with Uranus quincuncx Dejanira around midnight PST. A feeling of not feeling in control of our destinies, maybe some sudden revelations hit us around this time. Maybe some strange dreaming going on here.
2:00 PST brings us to the Moon-Sun quincunx, and we're a couple days away from the Lunar Eclipse as well! So, we're approaching that full moon phase, but we're not quite there yet. And Moon is in Cancer, its home sign, so our emotions are ramping up already. Again, strangeness in dream visions, and maybe some restless sleep if we get any sleep at all. Most of us, I think, will.
As we begin to wake up at 6:00 PST, Moon semisextile Ceres retrograde may make for some rough waking up on the wrong side of the bed. Make sure you have a cup of morning coffee ready if you need it, and try not to bite off the head of loved ones or tear up the house while getting ready for the morning commute.
7:00 PST we get our easy aspect of the day, Moon trine Neptune. Both Moon and Neptune are in their home signs, Moon in Cancer as I mentioned, and Neptune in Pisces, so we've got a flowing kind of watery, emotional, psychic even, energy going on here. It's likely some of us will be waking up from important dream visions, or we could possibly still be feeling dreamy as we begin our days as well. Do be careful not to drive off of a bridge thinking you're flying. More likely though, we may be a little groggy, but also a bit more in mental control at this point. The coffee will help, trust me.
We then proceed to 10:00 PST's Moon conjunct fixed star Sirius, which is a pretty nice aspect to have shine down on us. Business and job matters should go well briefly, which is always welcome on a Monday, and if we were under the weather a bit with all the colds and flu going around, we might be feeling a little bit better. Some may have taken the day off to rest, and with the healing Moon trine Neptune aspect from before, that's not exactly a bad thing.
11:00 PST shows us the Moon semisextile North Node.. We should have a bit more determination, and we may be feeling out whether we're on the right path or not. I think we should be ok at this point.
Hekate retrograde in Cancer opposite Mercury in late Capricorn around Noon PST will bring some interesting conversations and messages about whether we're really following the right path in our lives or not. Hekate was an ancient goddess which specialized in occult matters and crossroads, among other things. Some of these occurrences that make us wonder about the right path or not may be fated encounters, and should not be discounted at this point.
Later on into the afternoon, Mars squares Apophis around 15:00 PST (or 3PM if you prefer). At the same time, we'll have Venus conjunct the South Node, which leads me to believe that we're going to be facing some of our past issues regarding previous jobs, previous relationships, and there could be a risk of derailment or destruction of something in the here and now. We need to keep a cool, level head, and do not swing the torch of bridge burning too wildly, lest you burn down the entire island. Now would be a good time to put the cell phone on silent or vibrate, put on earbuds, and just zone out while you get some work done. If you're doing demolitions for a living, do be careful you've got the explosives in the right place, and plan for navigating around potential accidents. Honestly, may not be a good time to destroy things at all.
17:00 PST brings us the Moon quincunx Juno, and this aspect can play into the previous one's at 15:00 PST involving Mars and Venus and their respective aspects. Do not get into needless arguments with loved ones, and again, just let everyone do their own thing (within reason) and maybe put off unnecessarily dramatic conversations for another day. Maybe after the Lunar Eclipse Wednesday would be good.
Finally, to finish off the night, around 21:00 PST (9:00 PM), we get the Moon trine Jupiter (itself still in Scorpio), and Moon quincunx Kaali (itself in Aquarius). Our emotions are likely to be a little helter-skelter, but at the same time we should be feeling a somewhat stronger assurance that things will work out. It's a good time to take stock in what we do have to be thankful for, and to remember the good in our lives, especially if we're feeling a bit down right around then. Good advice for any time, really, but this is an excellent time to take stock in what's going right for us, not dwell on what's wrong.
So Monday's a bit of a mixed bag, but we've got some good, flowing aspects that will help us get through this day into the nighttime, and it should be a mitigation for the afternoon firestorm of "OMG. WTF." Just get through that rough patch in the afternoon, and I think you'll be alright. Also, again, keep track of what you dreamt of, and if it resonates, incorporate it into yourself. OK, I gotta get some sleep here. Earlier start time at the main job. More height of rush hour. At least I don't see any Mars square Mercury here, so I think I'll be alright. Just will need an extra cup of coffee at work. Cheers.
