Check Your Chart, for the Week of 27 February, 2023
Vlad the Bad was so mad, his time to shine was so sad. It was supposed to be a week of celebration and acclaim, from the State of the Nation to the anniversary of conquering Ukraine to the annual Heros of the Revolution parade. Uncle Joe tainted all of it. In dueling talks, he showed up in Kiev!
What? The World’s Leader is so strong, he can show up in the middle of a war zone, while the Russian Leader is afraid to fly. On Monday, the New Moon, the Sun, and the Moon together, were square Putin’s natal Moon, at crossed purposes to what he wants or needs. Shortly before, an advanced missile test flopped, so no ‘show off’. Biden upstaged him on the Big Stage. There was no win by far in ‘his territory’. He is no Hero of the Revolution.
And, looking ahead, April will not be ‘comfortable’ for him. Transiting Saturn is in his 4th House, not the best. Each Planet has a role to play. Each House has a job to do. Being the Bold Boss in the Nest is awkward at best, doing the laundry while you should be out leading. Saturn squares his natal Moon on 2 April, demeaning and disappointing.
Putin is also a ‘show off’, with Venus aspecting Mars as the 1st Planets to rise in his Horoscope. He loves to strut, sometimes topless. Neptune ‘disappoints’ his vanity by aspecting both on 24 April. A ‘put down’ followed by ‘embarrassment’ is not how a Leader is seen. His position is weakening.
Dueling Dialogues, from the Personal Complex looking for a fight, also showed up in the US on the same day. In tit-for-tat, the MAGA Right’s McCarthy gave beleaguered Faux News 41K hours of 6 Jan. videotapes, in the hopes to “whaddabout” Biden to political death. As the Sun approached the mark of Conspiracy Theories and anything you can make up out of nothing, Uranus / Neptune, double-speak, and ‘having it both ways’ bloomed. Calls for “a divorce” between Red and Blue states sound like succession, a call for Civil War. Golly, in Canada, we just want people respected and decent Health Care.
Then, huge amounts of blustery snow and deep cold hit, along the entire West Coast down to Mexico, and across the continent to Halifax. Below that diagonal line, is unseasonal heat. The Denialist Right didn’t like the term Global Warming as too ominous and threatening. They only want to feel comfortable, so they changed it to Climate Change. After decades of avoidance, it seems increasingly obvious that the Climate of the entire Planet is Changing from Global Warming.
This week: Mercury and Venus just made a ‘cordial’ aspect. This week, they both aspect Jupiter. “Oh, goody!” Well, for some, maybe. Then, they both aspect Saturn to chill the ‘goody’. The Venus – Jupiter alignment is supposed to be The Best. It can also mean Complacent Satisfaction, it’s OK enough to only get by. And, the Ruler of Wintery Moods holds sway through the rest of the week. Even Happy Go Lucky Jupiter aspects this Mood Bender by the next New Moon, 21 March. Please stay Sober and Considerate.
Nota Bene: Still approaching Solar Max, last week (Thursday – Friday) got an extra dose of Sunspot flares. High-speed protons screamed down at the poles at nearly the speed of light! Expect the Heavenly Jangle to last for a few days.
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, 27 February. (Moon hoping for more, going it alone in Gemini. The Sun in Pisces has hard aspects Mars / Saturn. 8-9 Mutable, 23-24 Cardinal)
Expect it to be hard, long, and difficult, and it will get easier as you warm up to it. But, expect it to be an easy ‘gimme’ and that will turn tough.
Tuesday – Wednesday, 28 February – 1 March. (Moon is quietly considerate in Gemini, expecting (demanding) much more in Cancer. Mercury in Aquarius has hard aspects, and Venus aligns with Jupiter in Aries. 11-12 Cardinal, 26-27 Fixed)
“How sweet, say some more, please.” How pleasant can it get? As Mercury aspects the Galactic Centre, the Public Eye, this is everything one could expect among friends and community. Let’s hope each and all get some of it. The Moon in Cancer says to grab what you can.
(Mercury in Aquarius soft aspects Venus – Jupiter / Uranus. 28 Fixed, 13 Cardinal)
Wow, what some will say or do to impress the crowd. This is packaged to please The Many.
Thursday, 2 March. (slow Moon wanting to believe in Cancer. Mercury aligns with Saturn in late Aquarius, both soon into Pisces. 29 Fixed, 14 Cardinal)
Late Aquarius – Early Pisces is the Realm of the Jet Setter or, for most of us, the Realm of the Ragged Edge. This can play fast and loose just for Social Appearances. Caution! What are the Facts? If any! What was just promised or proposed (above) needs a very careful inspection.
(the Sun in Pisces aspects Saturn / Neptune. 12 Mutable, 27 Cardinal)
This can easily slip sideways in a trice like driving or walking on slick ice. Use extra caution! Since both Giants are old and slow, expect this to take an extra amount of time. Slow down!
Friday, 3 March. (apogee Moon isolated in Cancer, needing to be critical in Leo. Venus in Aries hard aspects Saturn in late Aquarius, both aspecting Sun / Uranus. 14 Cardinal, 29 Fixed)
“Surprise, you didn’t read the fine print!” The apogee Moon is distant, out of touch, and/or at its most selfish. Beware a personal Con Job, even of yourself because you wanted it so much.
Saturday, 4 March. (sluggish Moon anxious, agitated in Leo. The Sun in Pisces aspects Mercury / Neptune. 13-14 Mutable, 28-29 Cardinal)
Aren’t you glad you waited, hesitated, and took your sweet time to get more info, and a 2nd opinion? Or, are you ready for a told-so? Quiet (smug?) contemplation is much mo’ better.
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.
