Check Your Chart, for the Week of 24 October, 2022
by John Rutherford, Astrologer. Reading Your Horoscope since 1971.If there is anything in Astrology, this is the Peak Stress of all the strains and lack of credulity that bubbled out of last year. Conclusion: close but no closure. Like Prom Night, with all the pompous posturing, seductive come-ons, lovely lies, and persuasions, but an early ride home. Or, like a used-car huckster who says and promises anything not deliverable, in some cases not driveable, just to make the deal. Peak Hypocrisy and double-dealing, if not done, broken and wounded worse than in 1930.
There have been in 3 times in the last century that Saturn was in a waning square to Uranus: 1930, 1975, and 2021. These cycles, whether Giant Planets or not, seem to alternate their effects. 1975 was the Reagan Revolution, spurious “trickle-down” economics that undermined so many Social Programs still hurting today. 1930 was, well, you know, if you read anything. In 2021, we see the rise of Fascists again, literally again in Italy.
But, this time, where is the Leader? Putin doesn’t cut it. He’s trying but doesn’t have the planning already in place, fighting in Ukraine with WWII equipment and tactics, and cheap drones from Iran. Xi in China talks of Taiwan, not the globe, with economic growth cut to a 1/3rd of a few years ago. That leaves the Former Guy and his evil henchmen facing a growing number of subpoenas (jail for Bannon) and legal cases threatening to obliterate his empire.
Saturn squared Uranus, the Lords of Stress and Tension when together, 3 times last year, done in December. If any Plan by Big Baby was there, it would have been shown by now and was by the 6Jan. Cmte., hence the subpoena that he will evade as much as possible. Saturn is within the orb of the square to Uranus, less than 1º in fact, but stood still on Saturday (trine Mercury, for Brain Damage level mental density in some cases), turning away from being exact. Close, but does not count. Whew.
Yes, a series of Grand Trines last week does make for a form of Cosmic Constipation, getting stuck either In or on the Outs, a deep division of Us vs. Them. But, that involves mostly Personal Planets, is triggered by the quick moving Moon, a New Moon in fact, not done till Monday night, and with a leak through Neptune, Lord of Leaks and Scandals.
In quick summation: no repeat of the poorly planned KKKoup, no great US Midterm collapse. DJT has his legal knickers in a knot, playing out no matter how much he evades or stalls. Putin has the New Moon right on his Ascendant (more important than the Sun Sign), and a New Moon (instability, time for big changes) in his Progressed Horoscope in about 9 months; either his mistress is pregnant, or he will have a hernia (or worse).
Nota Bene: And, what’s with the Sun? Total let-go, like the start of the week, with draggy protons close to zipping. Then, through the weekend, with snap-crackle winds and a generous dose of proton drag.
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.
Monday, 24 October. (New Moon frittering, shifty in late Libra, needing a precise target in Scorpio. The Sun in Scorpio. 2 Fixed, 17 Mutable)
A Cosmic punctuation mark, shifting deeply private, personal affairs, too deep to surface yet.
Wednesday, 26 October. (Moon with frustrated fidgets in Scorpio. Mercury in late Libra trine slow Mars in Gemini aspecting Sun / Uranus. 25 degrees and 10 degrees of All Signs?
Insisting that something changes when it can’t, or assuredly won’t, won’t get far. At least make the statement, for the record, so it doesn’t get lost, even when they try to make it so.
Friday, 28 October. (quick Moon mulling what could have been in Sagittarius. The Sun in Scorpio soft aspects Saturn / Neptune. 5 Fixed, 20 Mutable)
Go slowly, maybe more so, so you can finally reach ‘something’, or call it a day, or quits, or an overdue time away, out of the messes. Let the ‘minions’ do the cleanup. Forget about it.
Saturday, 29 October. (perigee Moon pushing for too much on Scorpio, expecting the ‘too personal’ in Capricorn. Venus in Scorpio hard aspects Neptune in Pisces. 7-8 Fixed, 22-23 Mutable)
You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear, no matter how hard you try or what you believe. This can be great, imaginative entertainment. But, realistically, it’s a pipe dream. Savor. Appreciate the treat.
(Mars is stationary, turning retrograde in Gemini. 25 Mutable, 10 Fixed)
Lost desires, urges stuck, take a ticket for another time, but not now. Conditions are changing. Wait for what’s really new before you jump. This could leave a scar with no purpose.
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, 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.
