We all know about the havoc wreaked by Mercury retrograde, but what about Pluto? The dwarf planet has been retrograde since April And on October 2, it. Early in the morning on Saturday, September 28, the new moon will rise in Libra, the sign of the Scales. All new moons symbolize new beginnings, and with t. I spent the weekend with Aubrey Marcus, a wellness guru soothing the souls of modern men.
On September 23, the fall equinox arrives and Libra season officially begins. The seventh sign of the zodiac is associated with balance, beauty, and sociab. On Monday, September 23, day and night will be equal length, and autumn will officially begin.
So when the platform Keen invited me. In astrology, when two planets are square to each other in the sky, so they are also in tension in the psyche of the person born under this combination.
This is an area in their life that they need to work on and try and find harmony in. There is often conflict around the energies expressed by these two planets. Things do not run smoothly in these areas and there are always issues that need dealing with. Externally these may manifest as tensions and disharmony with people and events, yet they are just an expression of the underlying tension in the person. If we take an example of the Moon being square to Mercury.
Astrology states that the two forces exemplified by these planets will also exist inside the individual but as it's a square aspect, they will be in tension with each other. The force of emotions and neediness and comfort, the Moon, will be at odds with the ability to communicate and express knowledge, Mercury. This person may not be able to easily express his emotional needs. The tension of the square is further emphasised by the fact that when planets are three signs apart, they are sitting in signs of completely different elements.
For example, one planet could be in a fire sign and one in a water sign.
Naturally these two elements do not mix, yet the two planets are some how connected and need to be reconciled. The Sun, Moon, and all other planets can form the semi-square to each other. The sextile is the largest geocentric aspect possible between Mercury and Venus. The semi- square--half of a square --is a warning; like the semi-sextile it is a "young aspect.
The semi-square in the natal horoscope is evidence that the person has begun to congest on those awarenesses of spiritual principle represented by the planets concerned. It is as though the person in the past, sought to experiment with life through ignorance of what he was really dealing with, and now the semi-square holds up a warning finger and says "Stop, Look and Listen.
The semi-square is evidence of gathering tension, the appearance on the horizon of the cloud which might bring rain and spoil your picnic plans. You can't do anything about the storm cloud, but if you don't want to risk having a disappointing experience you will postpone your picnic plans until you know for sure how the weather will be.
In other words, you won't stubbornly go ahead with plans when you have the evidence that postponement would be a more practical measure. The experience of feeling a growing progression of fear or anger is like the meaning of the semi-square; while the emotion is still intensifying it can be dealt with and controlled or transmuted, but after it reaches a certain degree of intensity, the astral potency overwhelms your mental-directive power and you plunge into an experience characterized by considerable pain and suffering.
If you have occasion to deal with a chart containing several semi-squares keep the thought of past experimentation through ignorance in mind as an interpretive key; such a registration indicates that this present life will contain, for the person, many opportunities to learn from the evidence of instinctual negative tendencies but which must be dealt with regeneratively now or suffer grave consequences in future.
Of course the two planets of any semi-square aspect may be regeneratively aspected in many ways by other points in the chart, but the semi-square registers a negative tendency. Understanding of it is necessary so that the person may--in this present life--know what he is dealing with inside of himself, rather than continuing on the path of ignorance and un-awareness that may have characterized his experience in the past in certain ways. Since you, as the astrological reader, stand as a personalized symbol to the person of awareness and knowledge, study the semi- squares by a careful correlation with all regenerative indication in the chart--from semi-sextile to trine--that are involved with the semi-square planets.
Look, with the eyes of your Spirit, at that semi-square as though you were a dentist studying a small cavity as pictured in an X-ray--your job as a reader is to understand that warning as completely as possible. The quincunx exact, degrees, five signs; by orb, to degrees is a fascinating astrological factor; it is like a "coat of many colors," a kaleidoscope and a chameleon all in one.
Several pictorial symbols have been devised for it; the author suggests the following: the composite of the symbol for the semi-sextile aspect with a down-ward vertical from the center. These lines would correspond to the cusps of Aries, Aquarius, Sagittarius, Libra and Cancer of the Great Mandala and the picture it presents suggests an unfolded flower on a vertical stem.
The quincunx is the only aspect that pictures alchemy within itself because the degrees of its exact scope are primarily focalized by the ninety degrees of the square and the sixty degrees of the sextiles. It also implies the possibilities of the following aspect sequences: five semi-sextiles, semi-sextile and trine, trine and semi-sextile, sextile and square, square and sextile.
Aries semi-sextile Taurus, Taurus trine Virgo. Aries trine Leo, Leo semi-sextile Virgo. Aries sextile Gemini, Gemini square Virgo. Aries square Cancer, Cancer sextile Virgo. Another formula, picturing the quincunx within the Great Mandala is this: Aries quincunx Virgo. Scorpio quincunx Aries.
Ceres As goddess of the harvest and the natural process of fertility and renewal, Ceres represents the process of nurturing and motherhood in an individual chart, and has been attributed to the sign Cancer as a co-ruler with the Moon, as well as to the signs of Taurus, Scorpio and Virgo. In other words, his next-life horoscope would register the sextile aspect. The registration of a semi-sextile in your chart is the indication that you have already started, in the past a regenerative program concerning your consciousness of the planetary principles involved. From this approach it may be clearly seen that the quincunx is really not a "minor" aspect at all because it is a registration of opportunity in this life to effect very significant transmutations in consciousness. Due to the lesson that they needed to learn in taking care of themselves, it was necessary for them to wait, feel physical pain and then get professional help. When triggered by transit you do get positive outcomes.
Virgo sextile Scorpio. Two quincunx aspects which both include one particular zodiacal sign total the entire zodiac when the sixty degrees of the sextile are added to them.
