Check Your Chart, for the Week of 29 August 2022
by John Rutherford, Astrologer. Reading Your Horoscope since 1971.
Instead of ‘news’, there were nuances. Artemis, the most powerful rocket on the Planet could not get off the ground, of a Failure to Launch. The great liberation of Ukraine, supposed to happen in 3 days, is bogged down 6 months later, losing ground, and having to resort to Nuclear Blackmail so it can steal electricity to pay Putin’s increasing bills. Guns are such a rash on the buttocks of US society, any excuse will do, like a New Moon square Mars, for multi-city Mass Shootings (mass stabbings in Can.). And, its Criminal-in-Chief can’t take ‘no’ for an answer, has a crazed cabal of Denialists supporting him, yet still can’t get his MAGA revolution off the ground. The Sun spouted 13 flares in 4 days, all missing the Earth.
Monday’s forecast was good for getting things moving (Mars-Jup) but to where for what (Ura-Nep)? A small valve leaked on Artemis so, no go till it’s just right, danged fussy scientists. Ukrainian push-back came mostly from superior Western high tech, humbling Putin’s Rude and Crude, mostly WWII-era military. The US extreme Right wants Anarchy in the streets, starting with Guns for All and, with computer 3D printers, Auto Switches will soon enough make any semi-auto into a full-auto! And, Big Baby went all big baby, again, because nothing is supposed to apply to him, including the Rule of Law, only to everyone else.
And, when Uncle Joe had the gall to point out the obvious on Thursday (Merc-Sat), Kevin McCarthy-ism and his Klan denied being a Denier and a Divider, it’s all Joe’s fault. Meanwhile, the ‘hoax’ of Global Warming flooded 1/3rd of Pakistan and ripped the facade off of Mississippi’s racism, its capital was without potable water for months, and lost its pump for most of the week, because the whites don’t want to pay for any black amenities, like living. Gazprom cut off the EU’s gas supply again. In Russia, 3 or more is an illegal gathering; Gorby died, Putin was a no-show, and his ‘enemy’ had 1000s for the viewing. And, with so many empty Top Secret folders lying around the open resort called Mar-a-Lago, questions mount about not only who saw them but, Who Bought Them? The 1st Big Thing Big Baby did as Prez was to invite Russian FM Lavrov into his Oval Office. How many 1000s more docs lie hidden at his other residences? More warrants, please.
Hmm, so many things Getting Loose and unaccountable after April’s Jupiter-Neptune alignment. So may More Mistakes, Neglects, and Deceptions still be made. Where’s the Back-Up, where’s The Enforcer, namely Saturn? Saturn is still snagged, ensnared by Magical Thinking since the 14th. Jupiter wasn’t ready to do it in July, aspecting Saturn on the 21st. But, many perspectives have changed since. These Giant Planets are old and slow, ya know, so it takes a while. Another week of Summer mode, Mercury turns retro Friday, the Sun opposes Neptune the following Friday, and then…
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.
Monday, 5 September. (Moon kinda holidaying in Capricorn. The Sun in Virgo has hard aspects Jupiter / Saturn and Mercury / Uranus. 13 Mutable, 28 Cardinal)
“I’ve got important stuff; ya gotta hear about it!” Is it? Or, is it a quiet spot that you want to fill? Thanks for the notice, but call me tomorrow when the offices are open if they do. Only Real News will be covered by those with Real Jobs. Or, call the neighbors.
Tuesday, 6 September. (Moon can only handle one thing at a time in Capricorn. The Sun in Virgo has hard aspects Mercury / Saturn. 14 Mutable, 29 Cardinal)
The Sun’s with the Moon, one thing at a time, in a logical order, or go to the back of the line. Wow, this week’s more of a holiday than the last. Where’d everybody go?
Friday, 9 September. (Full Moon into pleasures first, passions second, in Pisces. Mercury in Libra stationery, turning retrograde. 8, not 9 Cardinal, 23 not 24 Fixed)
You don’t want to Talk About It? Didn’t think so. Me neither. Let’s keep it light and ever so superficial until… “What, you never got back to me!” Yeah, right. This Full Moon howl got something stuck in its throat.
(Full Moon in Pisces. 17 Mutable, 2 Fixed)
Mercury is the Communicator. Can’t you read? Oh, yeah, see the above. The degrees for this catch the brunt of those.
Sunday, 11 September. (Moon wants indulgence in Aries. The Sun in Virgo trine Uranus in Taurus. 18 degrees and 3 degrees of All Signs)
If there was anything else, this could get jacked up in a hurry. But, with the Moon, who wants that? Some are spinning their wheels like crazy in the background. Meanwhile, a low rumble will do until there is a Real Something.
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.
