3 T-squares, a fiery Grand Trine (using NN), and a Mystic Rectangle are in store for us this year, with the Midheaven (Mc: top o'the chart = career point/public status) unaspected at a critical/crisis degree (20 Cap)--and the midpoint of planets Neptune and Pluto sitting immediately upon it.
This mid-point picture, Nep/Plu = Mc, gives a certain mystical or even supernatural influence to these matters but negatively can indicate fraud, deception, and everyone's personal favorite: propaganda. And...defenses concerning insecurity. Loss of status, reputation, and/or career are possibilities, too--can ya feel it comin'? More and more we hear/read the "I" word...Impeachment...so we'll see how that plays out.
>>Stubborn, greedy, often intolerant Taurus, one of the money signs, is rising, and worryingly we see that the forming Fixed Grand Cross is Angular thereby directly affecting Washington and the US for the next 12 months.
Which means that even after the Grand Cross separates or eases, there will be important triggers to the 4 planets involved--which are Mars (rising, as you see), Jupiter, Saturn, and pesky, dissolving Neptune. As I said above, this chart is good for a (troublesome) year until Winter Solstice 2006.
(See Previous Post of Dec 10, "Iraqi Election of Dec 15", link just below, for my best guesses on who each planet represents in Washington in this stubborn Fixed Grand Cross--not that other scalliwags and miscreants aren't in the pudding, too, of course! There are more Turdblossoms than one blooming in the DC swamp...):
Now we all know what Mars represents in the violence, war, and/or quarrels and conflict department, so with Mars soon to Return to its position (17Gem11) in the Jupiter-conj-Saturn Chart (of May 28, 2000-->the Dems/Repubs Hook-Up Chart, as I like to think of it), it's pretty safe to say that as transits go, this one should be noted>> Mars Return: March 22, 2006, fyi. You've heard of Tecumseh's curse on the US presidency, which refers to the 20-year cycle of Jup/Sat, but hopefully, any loss of GeoBush will be due to impeachment, and not literally...yet it cannot be ruled out given the state of the world.
And 17Gem+ is the degree of the Venus Occultation of June, 2004, which arose with the Sun on Sea Island, GA--the G-8 Summit where they strolled upon the beach together, chest hairs blowing in the wind, cameras anapping to bring us a brotherly G-8 bonding moment.
But back to George--any loss he may suffer will be brought upon him by his own hubris, plus the fact that powerful men make powerful enemies as we know, and Bush doesn't seem to have the good and timely advice of Astrology to warn him as Reagan did--and thus Ron managed to survive the assassin's attack!
As to the chart we are here considering--the Winter Solstice of 2005--Mars will be the first planet of the Fixed Grand Cross to cross an angle in this Chart--being the fastest mover of the four--and will cross the Ic of Endings (20Can28--a critical/crisis degree) on or about May 19, 2006 (which is almost the 6th anniversary of the Great Jup/Sat conjunction).
And as Mars moves through the 4th house, he'll conjunct Saturn (10Leo31, which also happens to be George Bush's natal Pluto's position) on appr June 21, 2006. This will be worth watching out for, m'peops. Quite a pile-up for Bush: Saturn/Pluto joined by Mars...it speaks of enormous frustration and anger--at the very least...a "gun with a cork in its barrel". Wonder who it will be aimed at?
In fact, June 2006 has transiting North Node (NN) at Aries Point, a World Point where big events tend to happen, and the transiting Sun will be at Summer Solstice--00Cancer--also a World Point of prominence.
Back to the Solstice Chart>>the mid-point pictures in the chart and for next 6 months are as follows:
Moon/Ura = Mercury: suggestive thought-power; excited mental activity; sudden perceptions; intuitions.
Mars/Jup = Sat: pulling in one's sails; having to toe the line; difficulties in making decisions; termination of relationships.
Sat/Nep = Jup: narrow-mindedness; egoism; sensitivity; very upset with the ways of the world; losing the will to fight.
As you see, the last two pictures are from the Grand Cross, but with the addition of Moon/Uran = Mercury joining in the fun. (Moon = the public, Uran = internet, Mercury = communication, so: using the internet to communicate propaganda to or by the public, or: the public online spreading perceptions and excited mental activity. ('Suggestive thought power' sounds like propaganda, doesn't it?)
The fiery, creative, and visionary Grand Trine involving the NN (which also has a connection to the public and to meetings) describes serious talks, strategies, hard-working people, and perhaps news of sadness. As with all of the pictures, any combo or all of these may apply at various times during the year.
Now on to the Mystic Rectangle...in Bil Tierney's Dynamics of Aspect Ananlysis, we find that this pattern "may be representative of 'practical mysticism' since it involves two potentially awareness-revealing, illuminating oppositions..." (Moon oppo Uranus and Mars oppo Jupiter)..."that can reach ideal or inspired fruition (trine influence) through intelligent, innovative utilization of energies (sextile influence)." (Sounds good--is the supernatural Nep/Plu at Mc on the case also?-jc).
"However, much depends on the level at which the oppositions are being experienced since oppositions can indicate disharmony, imbalance, separative forces, and irreconcilable differences." (In WASHINGTON? Say it ain't so, Bil-jc).
So with a Mystic Rectangle we can expect--or at least pray--that the normally helpful trines and sextile aspects which link these oppositions will bring integration to conflict, and encouragement toward satisfying resolutions.
In WASHINGTON? Well, where else could use it more? The Middle East? Who-o-oa...you ARE a dreamer!
