Check Your Chart, for the Week of 3 October, 2022

by John Rutherford, Astrologer. Reading Your Horoscope since 1971.

Storms, so many Storms, Storms everywhere, from the deepest emotional depths to the depths of Mother Earth. People are facing Wipeout from the weather! The Earth is quaking, 3 majors in the last couple of weeks. In between, a wounded Madman wants to start Nuclear War.

Stress and Tension seem to be building to a Breaking Point. The Heavens seem to agree. The last New Moon, on the 25th, an unstable and insecure influence at the best of times, was opposed by Jupiter, Lord of Excesses, aspecting Saturn / Uranus, Lords of Stress and Tension. That seals it, right? We’re all going to blow up soon, right?

Not so fast. For quick relief, Mercury the Messenger has been going backward, retrograde, so there are many with their heads not screwed on straight (so obvious). Some of them will start thinking straight again, now that Mercury has just gone direct. (Whew, about time.) So many Flip-Flops might start getting their stories straight again.

Actually, as Mercury stands still, it appears exactly opposed to nebulous, foggy Neptune (much like our recent weather here). Ahem, even the appearance is deceptive, close but not exact. Close, in Astrology, does not count (except for the Sun and Moon, for technical reasons). The Deceivers, spawned by this, cannot run far enough away to escape their deceptions (and, you know a few.)

Fiona dinged the Maritimes with a $500M bill. Ian dinged the US with $50B, not including so many without insurance! “It was a once-in-a-1000-year event.” Wrong! Only if you are looking backward! Like the once-in-centuries drought here in the West, including SW BC, this is becoming the New Normal.

Secondly, the Giant Planet Complex was not complex, it only looked that way. Saturn is going backward in Aquarius and seems to be backing into a square with Uranus in Taurus. Right now, they are less than 1 degree away. Saturn stops stationary, to turn direct again, on the 22nd. Mercury the Thinker is trine Saturn, becoming the Realist again. Venus aligns with the Sun, shifting from Bitchy to Better Get Along. And, the Moon says “Ah, I don’t really have to give a damn” as it opposes Jupiter.

Again, close but no Nuclear Explosions, no great Riots of Liberation in the streets of the US, etc. Vlad the Mad will be Sad he can’t be Bad. I can think of some others who will feel the same way. So, the most immediate curious thing is, next week: Nothing Happens! Not really, but it will seem that way. This lets Venus get on with her Clean Up, of the Physical, Social, and Legal kind.

No news, as in something new, is good news. The Moon is perigee Tuesday. So? The only Planetary or Solar aspect is Friday, a soft one from the Sun, purposefully boring. Pluto is stationary Saturday. So someone feels isolated. So? It’s time to give Thanks.

This week: Yawn. See above. With so little to motivate (only Wednesday could give some a crank, and Friday some will try too hard), it’s either something Way Too Big came along (wasn’t that last week?) or it’s pretty much Business as Usual, whatever that is these days.

Nota Bene: Just after the Moon formed a Grand Trine with Mars and Saturn last week, what is it with people who get caught up in an issue of their own making, but can only find fault with others? Hmm, Grand Trine: what’s in (with Me) stays in, what’s out (as in Others) stays out.

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.

Friday – Saturday, 7-8 October. (Moon biting off more than it can chew in Pisces. The Sun in Libra has soft aspects Venus / Saturn (and hard aspects Jupiter / stationary Pluto). 14 Cardinal, 29 Fixed)

The Jup/Plu says you’re mostly on your own, feeling isolated. Venus / Saturn means to take care of Personal Business and Duties. Did you call Granny and wish her well? Did you take out the trash? Did you brush your teeth? Stick to the basics.

(Pluto stationary, turning direct in Capricorn. 26 Cardinal, 11 Mutable)

If this hits one of Your Four Personal Points, here is your moment of “invincibility”.

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 the Numbers 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.
