Mercury Sextile Saturn (2015-10-13): A Good Day to Get Things Done

Mercury Sextile Saturn (2015-10-13): A Good Day to Get Things Done

Mercury sextiles Saturn today, and that makes it a very good day to take care of detailed work that may be a bit boring but is nonetheless important.  Think of accounting, bill paying or anything that requires meticulous attention to detail.  The Moon is just past new and waxing, so “things” tend to grow during this period whether they are problems or solutions.  You get to choose which.

Moon is v/c until just past 4:30 PM CDT (please adjust for your time zone), so do note that some things may have to be re-done or you may find that the task master that demanded them suddenly no longer cares about them.  Choose your battles (and how you spend your time) carefully.  Despite the void Moon, it is still a good time to take care of routine detailed tasks that must be done anyway.

A Thor’s Hammer pattern is present, so remember to “keep your cool” and avoid losing your temper.  Avoid dangerous people, places, and things as well.  (The 9/11 attacks started during a void Moon, so bad things CAN happen at those times!)  Work alone, if you can.

In any case, you really do want to “get things done” today and tomorrow because “things” get a bit messy on Thursday.

New Moon in Libra October 12/13

We have a New Moon in Libra that will lead us to re-evaluate all of our relationships.  Both Sun and Moon are in the “Via Combusta” (“fiery way”), and we can expect certain issues will HAVE to be addressed at this time.  Bite the bullet, swallow the medicine, and get it out of the way.  You have important business to attend to on Tuesday, and “things” become messy again on Thursday.  After the NM (about 4:30 PM CDT, 5:30 EDT, 2:30 PDT), Moon turns “void of course” (aka Moon v/c) until the next day, and this is a good time to reflect on recent events.  Spend the time alone, if you can, and note that you can use this period to break some old habit that no longer serves you.  Earth (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) and Air (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) signs tend to be favored at this time.

2015-10-11 Jupiter Trine Pluto 1 + Sun Opp Uranus

2015-10-11 Jupiter Trine Pluto 1 + Sun Opp Uranus

Today is an energetic day.  The first in a series of three (that culminates in 2016), Jupiter Trine Pluto perfects.  A Focused Yod can help you “get things done.”  Be careful what priorities you choose for they may be with you for a very long time.  (Tara Greene also has a useful analysis on this.)

The annual Sun Opposite Uranus perfects also, bringing surprises and, in the high form, brilliant ideas as well as, in the low form, explosions and accidents.  Be careful and take notes as you push to “get things done.”  Moon is very old now, “Dark of the Moon,” and getting things done might mean cleaning out old crud to make way for the new and bright.  Relationships are a premium issue now, and you need to carefully decide who you do, and do not, want to spend time here.  You may also want to read this short note on today’s aspects.

Mercury Direct Station 2015-10-09

The Mercury Retrograde period that began Thursday, September 17, 2015 will end October 9, 2015.  It is marked by two notable patterns (1) a Yod involving Neptune, Juno, and Astraea and (2) a higher order 7th Harmonic triangular pattern (arguably a 7th Harmonic “Learning Triangle”) involving Pluto, Astraea, and the North Node.  We show the first version of the chart, filtered for the Yod:

Here is the same chart, filtered for the 7th Harmonic “Learning Triangle”:

We note that both of these patterns have Astraea (law, legal, and justice) involved in both of them.  While a number of interpretations are possisble (and often appropriate to individual situations), we believe that we might see an important divorce initiated at this time.  Astraea represents the various members of the legal system, Juno an aggrieved wife (or possibly other family member)…

Venus enters Virgo

Venus enters Virgo.  Moon enters Virgo.  Moon conjuncts Venus.  Moon squares Saturn.  This last one gives us another preview of the upcoming Venus square Saturn day, October 10th.  If something irritates you, then pay attention.  It may grow larger.  (You MIGHT have a chance to “nip it in the bud.”)

October 7th: Sun Semisquare Venus (an Irritable Day)

October 7th: Sun Semisquare Venus (an Irritable Day)

As we prepare for the upcoming Mercury Direct Station, and a shift in our focus, we encounter this day in which we are hit with annoyances, maybe a feeling “something is wrong,” and a need to “get things done.”  Depending on the decision we made yesterday (when Mars Opposed Neptune) we may have “buyers remorse” and regret a decision (or purchase) we recently made.  Hold your temper, but focus your energy to get the results you need.
