D-Day 1944: The Invasion of Normandy

by Jude Cowell, partisan for democracy

Somehow it seems very small on this 80-year anniversary of D-Day June 6, 1944, the Invasion of Normandy, to reduce such massive energies to a mere Horoscope symbolizing the operation that began the beating back of Germany's Nazi forces and the subsequent Allied liberation of Europe.

Today, eighty years later, brutal Nazism again attempts to take over in Europe and where they don't belong--the United States of America! And today President Joe Biden speaks in France at the ceremony honoring the soldiers who are still with us, and those who are not. My uncles who fought are no longer around but the Horoscope of the Normandy Invasion is shown here as a small tribute to all Allied forces led by Allied Commander General Dwight D. Eisenhower, and all other participants in the grand fight for freedom, liberty, and democracy and to those who fought and resisted in other ways:

One interesting chart feature that describes Operation Neptune is that asteroid EROS (the piercing) @00Ari35, the premiere Cardinal World Point of Manifestation, opposes oceanic planet Neptune Rx @1Lib28 denoting the amphibious landings of 1944. And for those who use America's July 4, 1776 late afternoon horoscope (I use 5:09 p LMT), this descriptive opposition lands upon the shores of the chart's MC-IC axis of security, home, and public status.

Then significantly, today is cosmically marked by a New Moon @16Gem18 (conjunct Venus as in 1944!) at 8:38 a edt, the seeding and planning lunar phase which will culminate with the Full Moon of June 21 2024 @1Cap07, a Summer Solstice 2024 Full Moon suggesting a series of fulfilling events through Summer 2024 in relation, I hope, to the further beating back of today's crop of tyrannical despots, wanna-be dictators, and all anti-democratic sociopaths with Nazi leanings.

Horoscope of World War Two.

DC Horoscope: a Starry Autumn Equinox 2018

Image: Autumn Equinox 2018 (aka, Libra Ingress with Sun @00Lib00:00); Saturday September 22 9:54:16 pm edt White House Washington DC; Gibbous +156:46; Hour of Saturn (8th house), Mars out-of-bounds (OOBs) in 9th house and part of a disturbing midpoint picture: Mars-Saturn = Pluto (18Cap46 Rx) - brutality, violence, and murder. To these possibilities Noel Tyl adds potentials for 'the need to take control; forcing an issue'; and/or, 'strong anger'. This difficult midpoint picture is a natal echo for it appears in the birth chart of Donald J. Trump whose natal Pluto @10Leo02 sits at the Foundation Point (IC) of this chart, aka, The Drain.

Rain in the Forecast

Asteroids Eros (piercing) and Panacea (a soothing bromide) rise at Ascendant 3Gem17 just after starry Alcyone (something to cry about) of the Pleiades, then Mirfak (to have one's say), plus Menkar the Whale (victim of the unconscious; an imperative to say what must be said--or else). The rain stars of the Hyades (Prima Hyadum @6Gemini) soon rise bringing along their difficult implications such as scandal, disgrace, resentment, evil, imprisonment, violence, mental imbalance, extremism, shipwrecks, and/or murder (A. Louis). Yes, the world is in a sorry state (thanks compromised politicians!) and given that forceful Mars and Pluto are in the 9th house of Foreign Lands and karmic Saturn is in the 8th, this horoscope may be a foreboding picture of terrorism or an attempt at it--and of course false flag ops cannot be ruled out as we know from past experience of such pretexts being used to scam and emotionally manipulate the American people into yet another war. The Sorrows of Empire!

Sun-Mercury Conjunct US natal MC: public recognition, speeches, concerns about reputation

Chart-ruler Mercury applies twice (listed lower left): 1. square Saturn = info restricted, books/papers/emails lost; perfectionism; lack of time; sobering talk; and 2. trine Mars = too much talk not enough action; favorable for travel.

Applying aspects of the Sun (leader) are noteworthy and there are two (marked in pink, top of the chart): 1. square Saturn = a leader or leaders called to measure up and be accountable for past actions; somber times; and 2. trine Mars = vitality available but must avoid indolence and passivity.

Then there's the impressive Sun-Chiron opposition on the Cardinal World Axis--conjunct US natal MC-IC--and this is an aspect Richard Nolle has termed the psychopomp. Previously I have typed aloud whether Mr. Trump could be America's psychopomp, and of course the mundane Sun signifies the leader or the ruler of a nation. Well, some have called him psycho anyway.

Now transit Pluto @18Cap46 is also apex of the 1993 Uranus-Neptune conjunction degree (yet again) suggesting that 'the big picture must be followed, very little option to do otherwise' (Tyl) which relates, of course, to the collapsing of the old order of 1776 and the rebuilding of the new which is also shown in the Prenatal Solar Eclipse (PE) (here, in 4th house @18Leo42) with its themes of The Tower collapsing and the rebuilding that begins once the dust has settled. (Brady).

And this PE is the August 11, 2018 Solar Eclipse in the 2 New North Saros Series that no one is waiting for.

Eggs, a Dossier, Sean Spicer and The Briefing

April 21, 2018: Coming Soon to a bargain book bin or a Best Seller List near you, a new book The Briefing by former White House Press Secretary for Jupiterian Donald Trump, Sean Spicer who 'resigned' his position on July 2, 2017. Is it significant that Mr. Spicer was born September 23, 1971 during the three Great Conjunctions of broadcasting Jupiter and media/propaganda planet Neptune?

Their conjunctions in 1971 occurred in the 00-to-3-degree range of Sagittarius, expansive Jupiter's own sign, and as you know, the planetary pair suggests various potentials (any, all, or none) such as: speculation, get-rich-quick schemes, bubbles and busts, nebulous finances or fraud, scandal and instability, wrong diagnoses, idealism, mysticism, visions, fantasies and dreams, Utopian illusions, religious or mystical beliefs, occultism, great hopes, evasion, seduction, overdone generosity, rich feelings, compassion, subtlety, trickiness, gain without effort, deception via dogma, ineffective persuasion, make-believe, foolish or unfounded legal situations, hypocrisy as a form of internal policy, neglected ethics, senseless doctrines, acceptance of pretenses, ethics and morals based on favors and pay-offs, degradation within a justice system, self-analysis, and--political conflicts (Munkasey; Ebertin).

Yet the combined energies of the frothy Jupiter-Neptune pair are not all the blended cosmic influences upon Sean Spicer for he was also born under a powerful (power-craving) Sun-Pluto conjunction at the critical 29th degree of Virgo. In fact, his (noon) horoscope shows a line-up of Mercury (17Virgo), Pluto, Sun, Venus (7libra), and Uranus (13Libra), Trump's guiding planet of chaos and disruption.

Sun-Pluto energies combined hints at potentials such as: influences by criminal organizations, excessive amounts of armed strength, control by secret police, toxic conditions, policy reforms, threats against and control of dissent, corruption which wastes resources, determination to achieve goals, intense emotions, domination of others, an obsessive disposition, striving for power, martyrdom, fanatical tendencies, and/or plutocracy. Also notable is that Spicer's Sun-Pluto conjunction contains a third participant, 'piercing' asteroid Eros which adds intensity and passion to his plutonian conjunction. Eros was discovered in 1898 by DeWitt, and in Orphism was 'born of the cosmic egg produced by Night' (Encyclopedia of Astrology, DeVore).

Have you ever thought it esoterically symbolic that the presidential office in the White House is the egg-shaped, Venusian 'Oval Office'?!? Well, for about the first 6 months of the Trump administration, Sean Spicer was spokesperson for the Oval Office.

Now legendary astrologer Nicholas DeVore refers to the 'cosmic egg' but the ancient symbol has other names, Orphic Egg or World Egg being two of them. Perhaps a related SO'W post from May 4, 2017 may be of interest to those wishing to link the Orphic or Cosmic Egg to American Politics and the founding of our nation so if you wish check out Trump, Venus, a Pagan Egg, and the 2020 Election Cycle. You may or may not be sorry you did.

As for Sean Spicer's book The Briefing, I don't know how revealing the book or his PR tour interviews will be but his publishing effort actually tallies with the themes of his Prenatal Solar Eclipse in the 9 New South Saros Series: bringing to the surface issues concerning paperwork or communications; a worrying piece of news; health concerns; or, matters concerning loved ones may be involved (paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology but with my bold and italics for the sake of clarity.)

Well, perhaps we'll discover a clue in this April 16, 2018 Fox News segment with the book's author Spicer: Comey's account of dossier briefing is misleading.

Horoscope: Roy Moore Feb 11, 1947

Image: A speculative ('noon') horoscope of Judge Roy Moore of Alabama, born Roy Stewart Moore in Gadsen, AL on February 11, 1947 (after Trump's June 14, 1946) with Sun in Aquarius and Moon in Scorpio, a steamy Air-Water combination of energies.

As you see, this chart is set for noon because we don't actually know the sign or degree of his natal Ascendant without an accurate birth time. At noon, North Node @8Gem36 rises (conjunct Mr. Trump's Prenatal Solar Eclipse degree which conjoins US natal Uranus @8Gem55) as does Moore's quirky maverick Uranus Rx @17Gem49. No matter where The Witness planet of revolution and independence is in his chart, Moore's natal Uranus and that of Mr. Trump are positioned in the same degree of the same sign. A difference between the two Uranians is that Trump's is his guiding oriental planet while Moore's oriental planet is Mars @13AQ30--conjunct asteroid Pallas ('the daughter') and Lilith ('the fallen woman'), with both representing feminine archetypes that are strong in the Judge's life due to their contact with a very intense Mars (made more so in its oriental condition).

When Mars is oriental (last to rise before the Sun), we see an individual for whom self-promotion is constant and with a sense of always being ';on the stump' or beating a drum (Tyl); Mars oriental is shared natally by P.T. Barnum, Evel Knievel, and Liberace. Mars in Aquarius can be unreliable, contradictory, and superficial. Yes, his is a very busy Mars--oriental, one side of a T-Square (Mars opposite Pluto = Moon: an injury caused to a woman, according to Ebertin (see lower right of chart), plus, Mars is also is the tail of a Kite pattern with Neptune and North Node sextiling stealthy wealthy Pluto @11Leo57 Rx. A Kite suggests high-flying success and, for Moore, publicity (Moon-NN)--or perhaps I should type, notoriety.

Now if you enlarge the horoscope you can probably read (upper right) a few details concerning his Sun SQ-Moon Scorpio personality blend with "stern judge" part of the picture. Sexual deviant Pluto is out-of-bounds of the earthly plane and doesn't like to 'share' only manipulate and control, while Saturn Rx is fairly near Pluto Rx in royal Leo, the 'cruel duo' of planets. Actually, any contact between Mars and Pluto (ruler and co-ruler of Scorpio) can result in ruthlessness and brutality, and Saturn-Pluto is always 'an extremist' combination that judges harshly.

Natal Jupiter @26Sco07 (materialistic and ruthless) will soon receive a Jupiter Return. Then there is Moore's PE @00Sag49 which conjoins his natal Eros (sex; the piercing) and is in the 2 South Saros Series which contains a theme of 'joining unusual groups and gaining a great deal from them' (Brady) which could refer to his current group membership/s (we're talking Alabama) and/or to a new group he intends to join soon--one imagines it's the US Senate.

Meanwhile, his Mars-Chiron square denotes a need to deal directly with issues of sex and aggression(Nolle) yet something tells me that Judge Moore has yet to do this and is being compelled by a variety of forces to do so now.

Here I'll stop typing at you in order to keep things brief. However, other natal chart factors are worthy of attention, of course, so you may want to get started immediately! jc

Upcoming: 2 South repeats on January 6, 2019 @15Capricorn and the series began on April 17, 991 (OS) @1Taurus47 which gives something of a beastly vibe to the solar picture.

DC Horoscope: Autumn Equinox 2017 (Libra Ingress)

Autumn Equinox 2017 September 22, 2017 4:02 pm edt White House Washington DC with Capricorn, transit Pluto, asteroid Nemesis, and US natal Pluto rising (and US natal Mercury Rx setting). The chart and season are ruled by the 11th house Saturn @21Sag49 (alliances with senior and/or mature people) which again conjoins the natal Moon and South Node of Mr. Donald Trump, as we've discussed previously. The star of the show, the Sun 00Lib00:00 is in the 8th house of Corporatism, Insurance, Debt, Credit, Shared Resources, Legacies, the Occult, and Transformation (including Death).

Obviously, early on such issues as control, surveillance, coping, government systems, government, legal, and business concerns, plus, other Capricornian things will need dealing with during the autumn season along with issues of violence and war.

Saturn as chart-ruler makes only one applying Ptolemaic aspect, a trine with quirky anarchist Uranus, the leading and oriental planet of Donald Trump. This trine has been in effect for some time and here hints at how things will proceed from Autumn to Winter Solstice 2017. And there's an important factor that occurs prior to Autumn 2017 which is The Great American Eclipse of August 21, 2017 in the 1 North Saros Series which last manifested on August 11, 1999 @18Leo and is the famous 'King of Terror' Eclipse (aka, the Mother of All Eclipses) seemingly predicted by Nostradamus. This is why I penned "A 'new war on terror'?" on the chart for such propaganda is already being heard in the public discourse, thanks to pundits and reporters who shill for the Deep State and other corporate masters, international banking cartels, and crime syndicates. Perpetual war is their game.

Now as you see, The Moon (We the People) has left her conjunction with planet Jupiter (26Lib15) who can play roles such as The General, the politician, the banker, the broadcaster, the CEO, the religious leader, the thespian, guru, professor, and wears many other faces. Their conjunction is posited in the 9th house of Philosophy, Legal Affairs, Foreign Lands, and Travel (Jupiter's home territory) while asteroid Eros (the piercing) conjoins the Moon @1Sco24 which is the Sun's position in the Oct 24, 1993 'new world order' natal chart. Is such a piffling synchronicity a factor in light of the current Trump vs Deep State and other battles occurring during the first year of a Trump White House?

Most crystal balls would probably say, it's too soon to tell.

But besides a Lunar Eclipse on August 7th and the America-splitting Total Solar Eclipse noted above, there are various other cosmic events manifesting in August 2017 which must be navigated by the American people, Washington DC, and by Mr. Trump whose third of three Jupiter Return/s completes on August 4, 2017 (@17Lib27--conjunct US Progressed Mars Rx = militarized police, expanded gun carry laws, criminality, wounded veterans, etc) and whose next Mars Return (@26Leo and rising just before royal Regulus) begins a new (2-year) cycle of activity on August 31, 2017. All of Mr. Trump's Mars Returns are made more prominent due to his contentious Mars-the-warrior rising in dramatic, egocentric, often pompous Leo.

Sun-Saturn in Politics: Sun and Saturn meet @25Sco55 on Nov 18, 2014

In Washington DC Can Passion and Politics Share Mutual Goals?

If you're familiar with America's natal horoscope of July 14, 1776, you know that our nation is imprinted with the influences of the Sun-Saturn combination for the two planets are in Cardinal square to one another with Sun @13Can19 and Saturn @14Lib48. This aspect and planetary duo influences our national 10th house of Career and Pubic Status on the world stage and thus their energies are prominent in our national psyche.

Unfortunately for the American people, our out-of-bounds government continues to neglect our natal 10th house Saturn's imperatives and lessons of responsibility and accountability which now leads our nation to a 'fall from grace' on the world stage (10th house) especially with deconstructing Pluto now creeping through Saturn-ruled Capricorn, sign of government, law, and business. But there are infiltrators and operatives who have long wished it that way and they act totally under the sway of the Mars-Pluto energies discussed below.

Now if you've read this blog before you may know that for planetary pairings and their midpoints (halfway between two planets where their energies powerfully blend together) I tend to consult Michael Munkasey's excellent book, Midpoints: Unleashing the Power of the Planets. My basic reasoning for this is that the book, unlike others with midpoint directories, contains specific information concerning Politics and Business within the Hegelian Dialect manner of Thesis and Antithesis for each of the midpoints' potentials which then lead to Synthesis (triggering the power number 3.) There are several other uses for the book's info as well but since this is a Political Astrology blog, there we are.

So when the Sun (leadership; the president) meets authoritarian Saturn @25Sco55 on November 18, 2014, what might be triggered by this important pair of energies besides America's natal Sun-Saturn Cardinal square that relates, of course, to mature leadership, government, authority, control, status, and on some level or other, repression, suppression, or inhibition. The last Sun-Saturn conjunction occurred during the first week of November 2013 in earlier Scorpio, a time frame that includes the Solar Eclipse of November 3, 2013 @11So15 (linked below.) Currently we're under the auspices of the October 23, 2014 Solar Elcipse @00Sco24 which gathers further Scorpionic influences as America's ongoing issues emerge then and now such as the aftereffects of this year's Midterm Elections which have switched the balance of control in the US Congress (Saturn) and spotlighted their rift with the Executive Branch of government (Sun = POTUS) as The Media constantly reminds us. For as it's reported, things will be 'different' on Capitol Hill come early January 2015 when a new Congress is sworn in, gun-totin' hog castrator and all. That is, if you believe America actually retains a two-party political system. I don't, but you'll make up your own mind about it, of course.

Now let's consider the implications of Sun in Mars/Pluto ruled Scorpio, an intense, secretive, and karmic sign that needs to learn to control itself before it exercises control over anyone else. Obviously, the ruthless Mars-Pluto vibrations of Scorpio are part of the political picture as well (the Sun is always in Scorpio for US elections) and they echo the power-control political issues already mentioned along with war, weaponry, brutality, violence, and forceful interference (Mars-Pluto's rape and/or invasion influences.)

When the Sun is in passionate Scorpio (sign of the Scorpion, the Eagle, the Phoenix) we expect strong willpower to be shown (though its true source may be hidden) and a struggle for existence to occur (which relates in part to the GOP's ongoing attempts to 'erase' the presidency of Barack Obama along with his Affordable Healthcare Act, a health and regeneration link to surgical Scorpio.) Plus, there are potentials for quarrels, fanaticism, secret or invisible motives, self-sabotage, fear or fearlessness, overestimation of abilities, or even tenacity and the power to succeed and maintain one's position. Apparently, "surgical strikes" by drones helps the US keep the upper claw.

Naturally included in any assessment of Scorpio are its 8th house realms of Corporatism, Big Business, and Big Money so we must note that the Nov 18th Sun-Saturn conjunction occurs in the 2nd house of the National Treasury when the horoscope is set for Washington DC--at 3:50 am est, with 18Lib21 rising and conjunct North Node @18Lib49 stationary. Additionally, our nation's frustrated progressed Mars Rx rises on Ascendant (Rx by progression since Summer 2006.) Near Midheaven @21Can04 (The Goal Point) is our national Mercury Rx in 10th house--spotlighting traders, reporters, orators, writers, transporters (exs: pilots, pipelines), young people, tricksters, communications, spies, etc. Opposite is US natal Pluto @27Cap33 Rx conjoining asteroid Eros ('the piercing', which supports the Mars-Pluto flavor) in the Foundation 4th house of the chart. As usual, manipulative Pluto is obsessed with control!

Now since austere old man Saturn has traversed Scorpio we've experienced potentials for: deeply delving into other people's business for political advantage, metaphysical studies and application, obstinacy, endurance, a serious or somber outlook, pessimism, fear and its uses, propaganda, difficult matters that need to be dealt with, displays of skill, transformation, restricted or lost funds and resources, and--positively in my book--spiritual rebirth. For as we found with the October 2014 Scorpio Solar Eclipse, karmic progress can be made during a Scorpio eclipse when forgiveness trumps humanity's urge for revenge.

However, as we've seen in Washington DC, Scorpio is a Fixed sign and inflexible attitudes and rigid ideals tend to be deemed more important than addressing the needs of the American people so little if any karmic progress is made. Plus, if on a politician's schedule too often, 'the people's business' threatens to interfere with the constant drive toward gaining financial donations and support for propping up and swaying politicians, political parties, think tanks, and for mysterious or other causes and projects that would wither in the light of day if revealed. Yes, such can be betraying Scorpio as more and more politicians act (or don't act) in breach of the public trust and undermine the US government.

Sun-Saturn in Politics and Business--and a 'New Order'

As for Sun-Saturn energies working together, we find Thesis considerations in Politics and Business to be: the will of the people as defined in the principal founding documents (our will is still important to US politicians? Surprise!), checks and balances (#POTUS v Congress and the Judicial System), form and definition given to an enterprise.

Also of importance in the Sun-Saturn chart is an active Uranus-North Node midpoint (radical politics and groups) which points in a T-Square pattern toward activist Mars @17Cap12. This degree is another reference to the grand Uranus-Neptune conjunction/s of 1993 with its Illuminati/Enlightenment/NWO and unconscious implications and note that the karmic Solar Eclipse of November 3, 2013 @11Sco15 sprinkled its energies of a trine between Uranus (science; revolution) and Neptune (spirituality; illusion) upon our Collective Unconscious and thereby fertilized the seeding of a 'new order' which is and will be further stimulated by the ongoing transit of disruptive Uranus opposing US natal Saturn in Libra...progressives v conservatives. And that difficult stalemate occurs along with the dynamic yet exhausting Cardinal Square between Uranus and Pluto, a clash of generations now seen within the Republican Party and the 'newbie v oldsters' US Congress, and elsewhere. Thankfully, the final Uranus-Pluto square of rebellions and explosions will be exact on March 17, 2015 and issues from their cycle of civil unrest which began in the mid-1960s.

Meanwhile, Executive Jupiter Still Chugs Along in the Sign of Leadership

Even with investing Jupiter in shiny Leo continuing to lead a Locomotive pattern of success, the potentials for Antithesis of Sun-Saturn are stark: a gloomy, pessimistic policy focus, unreasonable centralization of authority in one location (Reagan, California! it's one of the same old American arguments used by politicians to keep We the People divided and conquered--so tiresomely touted by secessionists aka, anarchists), and/or leadership preoccupied with various forms of law enforcement (note that the Nov 18th Sun-Saturn Ascendant in DC conjoins US progressed Mars Rx at this degree, an inward-turning of America's Martian energies expressing via protests, the upgraded and militarized Police State, our Wounded Warriors, secretive surveillance of the American people, homegrown terrorists, terrorist acts on US soil or the threat of them (with false flag ops not to be ruled out), and the American people turning against one another, among other things. For our weakened and spat upon military forces of global imperialism, the historical cry abroad of "Yankee Go Home" has never been meant more genuinely or venomously than it is now.

Well, there's my brief assessment of Sun-Saturn in Politics and Business yet I have faith that you, dear reader, can add much more if you wish. It may be no small event when in the wee hours of November 18, 2014, the cosmic clock starts once again on the cycle between the Sun and timekeeper Saturn, a planetary pair whose influences are deeply imprinted up the psyche of the United States of America and its government.

Obama abroad: a view from London and Cupid's Love

Der Spiegel has a report on Pres. Obama arriving at 10 Downing Street, London to excited applause on Wednesday, April 1, 2009.

He's being branded the world's best hope or some such nonsense for one mere mortal to handle and definitely the possibility exists of being set up to fail, because no mortal can help but fall off a golden pedestal of exalted praise and admiration!

Still, this little Pandora is hiding a tiny *ray of hope in the dark corner of society's box of ills. Pandora, the asteroid, now traverses the degree range of 10 - 11 Aquarius - between Jupiter 19AQ+ and North Node (path; destiny; forward destination) 6AQ55 which conjuncts or triggers the 'New President' Eclipse of Jan 26, 2009.

The 11 North Series influence includes finding new groups of people to mix with through travel or ideas, and possibly making greater commitments in relationships - Pres. Obama is certainly mixing with a new set of individuals in Europe this week through both travel and ideas...the G20's haughty international crowd of 'global' players. (Eclipse info: Brady's Predictive Astrology.)

Jupiter-NN as a pair is given by Reinhold Ebertin as 'the *Odyle Force of Baron von Reichenbach' which he researched so diligently under the moon's rays attempting to understand the elusive flow of life force in the living organism.

You may wish to view the anatomy of a fanciful representation of the Odyle Force in human form here or skip ahead to the completed version of my drawing Odyle Aura, if you dare.

Another life-force-infused myth of similar flavor is that of the Greek myth of Eros (Roman,Cupid.)

'Eros' in Astrology may be used in love matters, of course, and eroticism, but its 'love at first sight' association - and shooting arrow - adds a piercing quality to the asteroid's meaning when prominent in a chart - and with all that the word may imply in working with Mundane Astrology.

(Even the all-seeing-eye at apex (top) of the 13-step pyramid (on back of a soon-to-disappear, they say) US dollar may be of an Eros turn of glance.)

But speaking of love, I want to mention that I enjoyed the new TV program last evening, Cupid - and am sending its creators kudos for the cool premise and fun plot line!

As for the G20 Summit this week, my sincere hope is that our president is mixing with new groups and making commitments as much on behalf of the American people's best interests as he purports himself to be...yet without ignoring the interests of the rest of the world.

Sheesh, now I'm at it, too - over-expectations!


*Alan Oken gives Moon sextile Jupiter as the ray of hope aspect. And yes, I have it natally. You didn't guess that, did you? jc
