In my last post, I showed how the Moon created some interesting Astrology by aspecting a multitude of other planets and points. Afterward, I noticed some other alignments on their way. The amazing part of this is how the Moon is perfectly timed as if in tune with the others. For example, Monday, the First… Continue reading Moving through Beautiful Sky Geometry
Finger of God
In Astrology, there is a three-point planetary arrangement or alignment called a Finger of God. It is also called a Yod. Yesterday's 11/11/11 11:11:11 chart features one of these: [If we add in the South Node, our configuration becomes a Kite-Yod or Yod-Kite.] Clearly, this is an isosceles triangle, which highlights one point over the… Continue reading Finger of God
In like a Lion
Yesterday, at 4:01 pm CDT, the sun entered Leo, which simultaneously activated a number of aspects. Studying this chart alone could fill two or three semesters of Astrology. If we focus on the basic red and blue lines, we find 2 oppositions (180o), 3 squares (90o), 5 trines (120o), and 4 sextiles (60o). When we… Continue reading In like a Lion
Venus Enters Leo
At 10:32 am CDT today, Venus enters Leo—a sign she won’t leave for good until October 8th. Between now and then, she’ll conjunct Jupiter three times, most conspicuously on July 1st. Venus will dip her toes into Virgo on July 18th, station retrograde on the 24th, then reverse back into Leo on July 31st. Back… Continue reading Venus Enters Leo
Pisces Full Moon
Pisces is the sign of compassionate love, and the Pisces Full Moon chart has that theme written all over it. Here in La Mesa, CA, the moon rises just minutes after being exactly full. It’s less than 30 degrees from perigee, so the moon will appear larger than average. Look for the rising full moon… Continue reading Pisces Full Moon
One Day Later
In yesterday's post, I focused on an image created primarily from four planets occupying 17 degrees of their respective signs. Mercury has already moved a full degree since then, but thanks to the moon, we have four planets at 17 degrees again. Yet look at how different the image appears: In this chart, we now… Continue reading One Day Later
The Astrology: Tomorrow morning at 11:00 am CDT, the moon helps form a chart that is quite beautiful: [You can also view and interact with the chart via: http://planetwatcher.com/#1399651200 ] Notice the Mystical Rectangle formed by the moon opposite Chiron semisextile to the sun nearly opposite Saturn. You can also see the faint remainder of… Continue reading Empirical Data
A part of appreciating the elegance of Astrology is beholding the beautiful geometry it creates. Just as with an eclipse, observing it is half the magic! This morning, the gibbous moon momentarily resurrects the Grand Trine and Kite of last year and elegantly lays them on top of the Grand Square. Speaking of the eclipse:… Continue reading Astro-Gemometry Elegance
Is it Time to Soar?
Since it's Mother's Day, let's take this approach. If you are in labor right now, and give birth to a baby boy or girl around midnight CDT, then your child will have a very intriguing birth chart. Tonight, among other things, we will see a kite form in the sky to within one degree of… Continue reading Is it Time to Soar?
