Astro-Notes on March 27, 2015

Daily aspects:
– First Quarter Moon at 6:19 Cancer/Aries at 3:42 am EDT
– Venus in Taurus square Jupiter Rx in Leo
– Pallas in Sagittarius semi-sextile Ceres in Capricorn
– Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn

The First Quarter Moon transpired early this morning, marking the midpoint between our current eclipses and being accompanied by a ‘crisis in action’, which means the ‘seed planted’ at the beginning of this lunation cycle, ushered in by a Total Solar Eclipse in the very last degree of the zodiac, the omega point, has reached a critical stage after the ‘occultation event’ has brought something long hidden into our conscious awareness or the light of day. The Sabian Symbol for this particular degree of the zodiac states: “A majestic rock formation resembling a face is idealized by a boy who takes it as his ideal of greatness and as he grows up begins to look like it. Keynote: The power of clearly visualized ideals to mold the life of the visualizer – ARCHETYPALIZATION.”
On Tuesday, the day of the Mercury-Chiron conjunction in Pisces, did a young German co-pilot (a boy) deliberately crash an airbus with 150 passengers and crew on board into the French alps, which are ‘a majestic rock formation’. Meanwhile, it has been discovered that this young man had a history of mental illness (Mercury-Chiron), for which he was treated in a psychiatric care facility a few years ago and it has been assumed by his employer that he had fully recovered. However, documents found indicate that he in fact had an existing illness and was still medicated and in treatment, but hid (Pisces) this from his employer. So, now that these initiatives and investigations helped us to find the truth (or so it seems) and answer these pressing questions, the authorities have been challenged to react to this disaster in order to protect lives and prevent something like this from happening again (First Quarter Moon coupled with Venus-Jupiter square, with Jupiter being disposited by the Aries Sun) and with Pallas in Sagittarius in semi-sextile aspect to Ceres in Capricorn cockpit regulations are being changed or extended, calling for more personnel in there. Moreover, the liability of the company comes into play. They are facing a compensation bill in the hundreds of thousands of euros, of which they offered the families of the victims $50.000 euros each already to cover their immediate costs.

Tarot card of the day is for the third time in short succession the 2 of Wands”, representing the urge to move on, be bold and daring as well as original and proactive. This card indicates that we have come to a time of decision, where we must decide whether we want to build on what we have or perhaps expand in a new direction. Therefore, it is imperative that we bring forward the patience and focus of our intent and maximize on these opportunities, which are coming our way now. We need to confront the situation head-on, leave familiar grounds behind, step out into a new world and explore our options. Moreover, this card can also refer to the productive meeting of minds, from which partnerships can prosper and be successful.

A little self-love goes a long way – that’s what we could have learnt yesterday. Consequently, we’re starting a new sub-cycle today, during which we have a chance to focus on healing and wholesomeness, whereby it is critical that we put our best interests first in relationship situations where we tend to suffer, because of victimizing and confining thoughts, which have kept us trapped in this vicious circle. Our awareness of the dynamics, which play into this pattern, is essential in this regard and therefore, we have to come to the realization that we need to let go – no matter whether we care for it or not – and just follow the flow of events. We will get recognition for our initiatives and role in the grander scheme of things. After the Moon’s ingress to Gemini will it be easier for us to adapt and mix it up.

Daily astrology:
– Moon ingress to Taurus at 6:40 am EDT
– Mars in Aries semi-square Neptune in Pisces
– Mercury in Pisces sextile Pluto in Capricorn and semi-sextile Uranus in Aries
– Pallas in Sagittarius sesqui Jupiter Rx in Leo and sextile Vesta in Aquarius
– Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn

We are having a slow start in the day and we’re also a bit laid back and spaced out, because we need the rest and some pampering. However, once we feel better, we have to snap out of it and move out of our comfort zone or get ready and going in order to be able to make our dreams come true. In fact, we can gain some influence or control over our affairs if we choose so, bring forth the necessary initiative and motivation and work on our progress. Therefore, it is important that we review our personal options in order to come up with the right approach and then dedicate us to our causes or projects convinced that we can make big strides if we only apply our mind to them.

Astro-Notes for October 29-30, 2014

Daily aspects:
– Pallas in Scorpio trine Neptune Rx in Pisces
– Moon ingress to Aquarius at 9:51 am EDT
– Venus in Scorpio square Juno in Leo
– Mercury conjunct NN in Libra/opposite South Node in Aries
– First Quarter Moon at 7:36 Aquarius/Scorpio at 10:48 pm EDT

Now that we made our move, things proceed rather quickly. Still, matters are complicated and deadlines

are looming large over our heads. We need to turn a corner and make progress. Therefore, something’s gotta give and this means we cannot be too selfish or too self-involved, but have to put shared values first and merge our resources. Mercury’s pass over the North Node in Libra happened for the first time on September 16, then again on October 19 and 20 during his retrograde and transpires tonight for a third time. A theme that concerns our future prospects, especially in the way we think of others and come across to them, has been under review and is getting balanced now. Consequently, we might be more considerate and appreciative of others now, willing to cooperate, accommodate and assist or we can only see our own side and take others’ consent or agreement for granted, depending on how we’ve been evaluating our past experiences and engagements or interactions. Per example, at work I first helped in domestics and then in seasonal, though I have lots of my own stock to put away. I also took the time to chat with my daughter and to respond to her texts, while many of my projects have fallen by the wayside, but nothing is more important to me than her. However, I didn’t switch over from my seat to talk to the old man on the bus, but I exchanged a few words with him. In the worldly news we’re informed about Prince Charles’ substantial donations to the Cirillo and Vincent families – the Jian Ghomeshi scandal continues with another twist as CBC hires a private investigator and Canadian PM Harper unveils income tax-cut, expands child benefits.

Astro-Notes on June 24, 2014 –

An asymmetric triangle configuration is formed as Venus in Gemini engages in the

Mars-Uranus opposition with a sesqui-quadrate and a semi-square. Consequently, we’re confronted with a conflict in regard to our approach and intentions and thus, which actions to take to sell and promote ourselves or our cause well and this keeps us vacillating as we’re comparing our choices and weighing the pros and cons of the situation, while trying to decide whether it’s worth the risk or not. Yes, we want to make progress and move on or ahead, but should we really take chances at this offer or rather justify why we can’t agree to the terms and conditions. A sesqui-quadrate between Juno in Gemini and Vesta in Libra urges us to assess our commitments and investments fairly and objectively to be able to clarify our role within these relationship dynamics and whether or not we are willing to compromise things we hold sacred. After the Moon’s ingress to Gemini at 7:05 am EDT will our moods vary and switch easily, while our environment will keep us busy.

Astro-Notes on October 4, 2013 – Libra New Moon

The Sun in Libra casts a semi-square to Venus in Scorpio, her dispositor and ruler over the Libra New Moon, which will transpire tonight at 8:34 pm EDT, urging us to assess our path and purpose in all its complexity in order to be able to juggle increasingly complicated and evolving conditions that could throw us off our balance. Saturn in Scorpio’s final quincunx to retrograde Uranus in Aries indicates a structural/structuring adjustment toward a reforming future, which introduces new trends into our lives and therefore requires that we reclaim control over areas of our life we have neglected lately or put on the backburner (especially with the Sun coming out of the intricate aspect configuration involving Vesta in Virgo, Chiron Rx in Pisces, Uranus Rx in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn) as we’re receiving fresh inspiration and set our intentions for this new cycle. It’s time to look forward. A new dawn is already on the horizon, calling for determined individual and collective action in order to instigate change and progress.

The Sabian Symbol for the New Moon at 11:56 Libra states:
“Miners are surfacing from a deep coal mine. Keynote: The need to carry on at ever deeper levels the quest for knowledge, which keeps burning the fires of the collective mind of a society – EXTRACTION.”

(Dane Rudhyar, “An Astrological Mandala: The Cycle of Transformations and its 360 Symbolic Phases”, Pages 179-180)

Suggested by this symbolical image is an emergence from a dark period into the light of the day.

Astro-Notes on June 3, 2013 – water world

Today, Mercury in Cancer forms a Grand Trine in water with Neptune in Pisces and retrograde Saturn in Scorpio. Thus,

nurturing communication flows well, transcending boundaries and allowing us to bond on a deep level. A vivid imagination together with intense longings or a reflecting on life-transforming sacrifices, endings and loss could result in the outpouring of sentimental thoughts and statements and having us focused on our soul’s safety, unions that escape the limits of time and lasting connections. We might even dwell in a world of fantasy and illusion, where we can shape “realities” as we envision them. Moreover, we could receive news regarding the completion of a long-standing issue, or of transitions and passings, or of the removal of structures and obstacles. In any case, there will be revelations that have a strong impact, a revisiting of the past, reconnections and recollections shaping and influencing the more subjective, psychic and intuitive nature of our thought process and mentality.
