Check Your Chart, for the Week of 12 September, 2022

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

The Wind of Change started Wednesday. It blew the waters here into crashing waves on the Seawall, shutting down the ferries. It blew up a Tropical Storm in the Pacific that, with Global Warming and all the heated and more dense air, moved the Monsoon north from Mexico to well up Baja. It blew messages to the Royal Family to Come Home, Mumsy is tired.

By the next day, the Queen of the World had died. Sure, sure, there was the person, but there was The Image, the image of dignity and manners and respect, sorely lacking in so many places. It was her Spirit that charmed and encouraged others to reach out and be more. Spirit is the Wind, the Breath of Life. And, when she breathed her last, that Spirit was released.

Whether we like it or not, we are all connected. We live in a Community of and with others. This requires the High C’s: Communication (do we talk, listen, connect?), Co-ordination (are we going the same direction?) and cooperation (are we working together?), all primarily through the Planet Mercury, the Messenger, and an elevated Uranus, the Diplomat.

Three days before Mercury stood still to turn around, his Spirit was on the move. Seen for many years as an Orb of Influence, these Celestial Events have a shape. Not a simple spike or bump, but a waveform with ripples, perking up a few days before and after; the actual day remaining relatively quiet, seemingly inactive. Yes, on Saturday, a little wind also blew, but not much. The Spirit of the Queen had already gone around the Globe. What a Majestic Gesture.

On the technical side, Elizabeth stopped breathing. The Stationary Mercury to Saturn midpoint was aspecting her Natal Moon. The Winds had stopped. The Sun was setting. How fitting. We could go on about lots of mundane things, but this was enough. Notice how The Queen drowned out all the curmudgeonly attention seekers.

BTW, when is a surprise not a surprise? As the Sun trined Uranus, a 19-year-old, the youngest ever, won the US Open in tennis. Head of a New Wave, somehow Uranus made many things work more efficiently. Now, if more could, or would, get The Message.

This week: A bit of a legal, or social, buzz Monday, then many clams up, or clamps down, for the Rest of the Week. Ah, maybe that’s a taste of what Normal used to be. But, then, we have to rethink, don’t we? Mercury sits still to ponder Friday, as it turns retrograde. How many will change at least their minds? Sunday’s Sun trine Uranus won’t do much until it has to, later…

Nota Bene: A Horoscope is a map of the Heavens for the moment of Your First Breath. That moment pins down the Most Important Planet, Mother Earth. The Most Important Points in Your Personal Horoscope are Your Horizon Line, from Ascendant to Descendant, and Your Noon Line, from Midheaven to Nadir. Then comes all that Other Stuff…

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.

This week: We have more Summer Blahs, so we can go and play until the Planets start acting up again. Oh, baby, we’ve got more than a week of it to follow, so playing hookey from school might be a good thing, but only for a short while. There are consequences for Neglect, as Passions flare (Venus square Mars) and people look for Scapegoats (Sun opposed Neptune) all through Friday, with heated words Saturday, and huge Verbal Scrambles on Sunday, to set up an even more bouncy emotional environment, through to a mashed up next New Moon. Hang on.

Nota Bene: It was as if the Sun knew, too. From bursting with another round of activity, the Sun’s face was filled with Spots, but all relatively placid and calm… for the moment.

Friday, 16 September. (Moon growly, raring to go in Gemini. Venus in Virgo square Mars in Gemini. 14 Mutable, 29 Cardinal)

If you only Work At It, too easily you could get hurt. It’s your Passion, your Personal Fire. Stuff it down, it burns. But, give it release and expression, learn to Work With It, Not Against It, and beautiful things get created. Triggered by the Moon through the evening.

(the Sun in Virgo opposed Neptune in Pisces. 24 Mutable, 9 Fixed)

Face it, if this hits one of Your Personal Points, you (or, they) are at a disadvantage. So, someone is most vulnerable, weak getting weaker, unsupported, and losing more. Ouch. What can you do to escape, evade, avoid? Where possible, get out of the way or this stain will stick. Big Splash.

Saturday – Sunday, 17-18 September. (slow Moon wants outa here, away from this and that, in Gemini. The Sun in Virgo hard aspects retrograde Mercury – retrograde Jupiter (and Saturn) / Venus-Mars. 24-25 Mutable, 9-10 Fixed)

Don’t forget Neptune’s desperation figures into all this rampant, ravaged Personal Upheaval. This could be a Magnificent Personal Makeover, or not. Neptune works best with a coherent Plan. Or, primitive Neptune, running away, makes things worse before they can get better.

(retrograde Mercury in Libra opposed Jupiter in Aries, hard aspects Saturn in Aquarius. 4 Cardinal, 19 Fixed)

This presages the Jupiter – Saturn aspect next week. The Hammer (Sat) has to come down to stop so many things seemingly Out of Control. This can either take care of The Issues or not say much because so much is going on to do so. Or, can spout in High Histrionics because ya got nuthin’, and making it up as you go.

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.
