Check Your Chart, for the Week of 21 November 2022
by John Rutherford, Astrologer. Reading Your Horoscope since 1971.
Actually, it was more than a couple of Grand Trines with Personal Planets that tried to lock things in a stuck place: nothing in gets out; nothing out gets in. We all know people who have become much more like that lately, deeply divided and divisive. But, there were bigger Grand Trines lurking, as you might have suspected. It gets complicated, also, as you might have suspected.
The trines (a third part of the Circle of Heaven, supposed to be a ‘good’, stabilizing aspect) of Venus, then Mercury in Scorpio, to first Neptune, then Jupiter in Pisces, locked up, closed off many from any further exchanges or pleasantries when the Moon went into Cancer on the 13th (giving a Cosmic Triangle of connections of, in this case, the 3 “Water Signs”). It did so to the Sun as well. Then, the Sun was trine Neptune on Monday, and Jupiter on Sunday. What a week of contrasts from the start to the end in flavor, style, and results.
The prime example, sadly, is again the Orange Monster. The flagrant Attention Grabber had to do something after the disastrous midterms. As expected, he announced another KKKoup attempt on Tuesday, replete with fantastic (Neptune) images of Paradise when he was in, and desolate images of Hell since. To sell more hats, it’s MAGAGA now, with “and Glorious” added. People weren’t buying, 5 GOP mega-donors ditched him, and the party revolt has begun.
Astrologically, as said numerous times, a trine with hard, activating aspects, only reinforces those other aspects. “Personally confounded and dumbstruck” was magnified to a sense of dread (Neptune, the Extremist). That went across many nations as other Ill Actors fired off ballistic missiles (NK), destroyed energy sources before winter (Russia toward Ukraine), etc. People took it personally. Sadly, again, the US had a Rash of Mass Killings, the most senseless when the Moon triggered the Mars-Neptune square (Massive Mistake!).
Of course, Big Loser took it personally, when the US Dept. of Justice on Thursday hired a War Crimes Prosecutor to be Special Master to ramp up impending indictments on Espionage, Theft of Government documents, and Obstruction of Justice. Accordingly, Big Orange took “Personal Umbrage to another, damaging level”. Said many GOPers, “He won’t stop talking.”
Many other examples showed much the same in style and timing. The Taylor Swift vs. Ticketmaster debacle is now being investigated by the DOJ. The rampant worker abuses (6,500 killed building Qatari facilities) have deeply damaged the standing of the World Cup. The Theranos founder got 11 years in prison for fraud. Revenge Litigations by the new US Congress will be greatly diminished to Perpetual Obstruction after the Red Wave proved a whimper.
Big, Fat Jupiter dumped a lot more than a Big, Fat Snow on the Great Lakes region. There are strains of Hope and Justice again. The UN Climate talks finally agreed to a Compensation Fund. Those that stayed quiet, and reserved (Neptune) gained the most (Jupiter).
This week: There’s This and That to start the week, pleasantries with little surprises on Monday, pleasantries with little worries attached on Tuesday. But it’s all about Jupiter stationary, turning direct, making big shifts in Social Perspectives on Wednesday (depending on which House it happens in Your Horoscope; it could be someone else, like a partner, ya know), and the Giant Planet Complex doing some of the same on Thursday. What are you, or they, able to do about it is the question into the weekend?
Nota Bene: As a reminder, the Horoscope is divided by the Horizon Line (depending on the Time of Day you were born) into My Direct Responsibilities (below the Horizon), and My Indirect Responsibilities (above). Some things we need to let others do, not take them all on ourselves.
All Planetary Aspect energies build up several hours before (for the swift) to a few days before (for the slow), as they approach. The Moon triggers within 2 hours.
Like Astrology, CYC is complicated, and cannot be explained in a page or two. Exceptions, depending on the context, can apply. Contact me for Your Natal Horoscope and a reading.
There are difficulties and irritants that defy solutions in any hurried way. Give it a rest, let it happen. Practice Purposeful Procrastination. Many things settle more easily if you can wait.
Wednesday, 23 November. (New Moon ‘stuck’ with a good thing in Scorpio. Jupiter is stationary, turning direct in Pisces. 28 Mutable, 13 Fixed)
“All Good Things come to her/him who wait.” Can you? Enjoy, if not indulge, the ‘quiet’. And, pay extra attention to which House this happens in Your Horoscope. You could be waiting for another to get better.
Thursday, 24 November. (quick Moon solving much of Tuesday’s dilemmas in Sagittarius. Saturn in Aquarius soft aspects Uranus / Neptune. 19 Fixed, 4 Cardinal)
Giant Planet Complex. This can more deeply support Magical Thinking and Conspiracy Theories and, with the Patience of Time, more likely now, begin their erosion, dismantle with Reason and, ahem, with Persistent Facts, not the Fictions so lacking. It has already started over the last few weeks.
(the Sun in Sagittarius soft aspects Saturn / Uranus. 2 Mutable, 17 Cardinal)
As we have seen, soft aspects can also make for not events so much as persistent situations. Here, we have Stress and Tension, but since those two Giants can’t connect, and haven’t been able for months, this can take some of the starch out of the Stubborn.
Friday – Saturday, 25-26 November. (perigee Moon casual, maybe gloating in Sagittarius. The Sun in Sagittarius hard aspects Mars – Neptune / Uranus, then Mars – Neptune / Saturn (finishing Sunday night). 3-6 Mutable, 18-21 Cardinal)
This has so many implications for Personal and Public affairs. Old conflicts rear themselves up since they were barely ever addressed. Mars – Uranus is always a Flash Point. Mars – Saturn means Punishment. Expect old resentments to surface, but rage and revenge make no sense and make it worse. This can finally let many Old Issues be put to rest. Long overdue.
Is your Number up? Check Your Four Personal Points for every day (see below). If the numbers match, this day is meant for you!
Each forecast shows the Moon Sign, the Planetary Aspect, and Number of degrees in Signs for the Planetary Aspect.
The Moon Sign is the Sign the Moon is in for that day. The Moon Sign gives an advantage to the Sign it is in, puts extra pressure on the opposite Sign, and tends to cross up or neutralize the Signs at right angles. For example, with Fixed Signs, if the Moon is in Taurus, Taurus has the advantage, Scorpio gets challenged, and Leo and Aquarius get shifted or crossed up.
The Planetary Aspect is where the action is released. It’s the Excuse. Unlike daily Horoscopes that suggest each day has the same level of influence, this is the core of changes in the daily energies.
The Sign Numbers are the degrees in the Signs of the Zodiac being emphasized. If the degree for any day is close to any degree of Your Four Personal Points (see below), within a degree or so, THIS IS YOUR DAY. Pay extra ATTENTION.
You may have several days in the week activated for you, or you may have none. As a degree hits one of Your Four Personal Points, the forecast tells about the important things in your life. The daily forecasts tell you when. The overall story comes through over time. Sooner or later, the degrees of the Forecast catch up to all Your Points.
Your Four Personal Points are, in order of importance:
The Ascendant, the Midheaven, the Moon, and the Sun. These are the most important points of your Horoscope, calculated from your birth date, your birth place, and the time of day you drew your first breath.
The first two Personal Points, the Ascendant and Mid-heaven, are the points that fix the Earth in space for your birth time at your specific birthplace. We live on the Earth, not the Sun or the Moon.
The Ascendant also called Your Rising Sign, is more critical than your Sun Sign.
Simply, and generally, only, forecasts that affect your:
Ascendant relate to matters in your environment. Use it to see what’s in front of you.
Mid-heaven relate to matters in your personal life. Use it to see what’s in your mind.
Moon relate to matters in your emotional life. Use it to see what’s in your heart.
Sun relate to matters in your physical life. Use it to see what’s in your core.
The Signs of the Zodiac are:
Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn)
Fixed Signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius)
Mutable Signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces)
Heaven, Help Us! The forecast is the mood of the moment.
When it rains, we all get wet, no matter what “Sign” we are.
If you like this forecast, let others know. SEND IT TO THEM.
If you have comments or questions, LET ME KNOW.
