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

A deep mood shift occurred on 13 March that I’m going to call, “I’m better now”. It is the kind of thing that happens when someone who was ill starts to feel better, so they think they are “all better now”, but they’re not. Recall the Winter Solstice, when the two Biggest Giant Planets, Jupiter and Saturn, aspected each other. 3 friends wound up with serious conditions, 2 in ICU, 1 died.

            On the 13th of March, those 2 Giant Planets aspected each other again, except Jupiter was retrograde, a symbol of taking something away. Jupiter is the classic Good Guy, often depicted as a Healer. So, Jupiter backward superficially seemed to be taking away the underlying problem or condition, Saturn, but he isn’t. It was only a reprieve. The difficulty is still there. Just the Attitude of Healing was taken away.

            In the bigger scheme of things, the reprieve is the core of an ongoing situation (since the 3 Solstice cases were solved one way or sadly another) that cannot and will not be more fully resolved until early September. That is when Jupiter aspects Saturn for the 3rd and last time for this round.

            Three more cases exemplify: I’ll call them Money, Health, and Work. Money has a nice stash they want to keep but balk at paying for professional advice, so the stash stays unsecured. Health has such emotional distress, severe inactivity now requires hip replacements, symptom solved but not the cause. Work desperately seeks work in an economic desert but attachments to fading nostalgia finds them stuck and starved, working 2 jobs to make less than one.

None of these are ready for September. Neither is T (as Mueller looms larger by the day), the US economy (as an outraged T threatens a wasteful trade war), and a slew of other situations, like “trust in America” sitting on a precipice. Hey, I’m just the Weather Man trying to duck for cover when a chill wind blows, like the rest of us.

Aside from the Soap Opera oozing from the Whitey House, High Dudgeon was kept spurred by teachers short-shrifted, threatened Trade Wars tanking Wall St as WH insiders make quick millions, Spanky’s (thanks, Stormy) Propaganda Machine has 173 stations sing his praises. Emboldened Malaysia attacks “Fake News”. Encouraged Israel wants 39K blacks expelled (cancelled within hours, Mercury backward). Puerto Rico shutters 283 schools, that many students and families now gone.

Then, Mercury the Mouth was “killed” (square the Dire Duo, Mars – Saturn), and new News died WednesdayThursday with a Deafening Silence. Too many simply Shut Up! For days! Even Spanky! Friday, Gaza protesters were used for sniper practice, 750+ wounded, 15 killed including a “PRESS” marked journalist; almost nothing said in the Western Press.

A curt “no” from Spanky threw his own lawyer under the legal bus. “New” Russian meddling sanctions were 3 months late, giving oligarchs time to tuck their stashesSpanky makes Base Points with a mock crisis over an annual Caravan to protect refugees in Mexico, sending troops for a border stay until the Useless Wall is built (alien crossings at its lowest in decades).

Muslims (0.4% of their population) and the long maligned Roma were targeted in Hungary so its Right Wing leader can win a 3rd election. Friday’s SK bus crash leaves hockey and Canada in mourning, no cause yet known. There is still no motive in the German van attack. News, information, communications and connections only started to recover Sunday as retrograde Mercury triggered the first of two Giant Planet Complexes exact next week.

This Week: …in 3 parts: 1) 2 Giant Complexes work more destruction and mayhem in the background, primarily manipulating money and legal systems but also undermining most people’s confidence and sense of security. 2) romance wants to rear its head (Venus trine Mars) but there are “extenuating conditions” or too many strings attached. 3) Mercury stops its impulsive Brain Storming and finally gets on with something more sensible and/or workable.

 

Nota Bene: Tuesday made pleasant promises (protons way down), then hit us with wearisome snags WednesdayThursday (protons jumped). Friday was a teaser (down to normal again), then a Monsoon hit the coast (protons double again). Where were you when the snaps hit?

Tuesday, 10 April. (sluggish Moon too smug in Aquarius. Jupiter retrograde in Scorpio hard aspects Uranus / Neptune. 21 Fixed, 6 Cardinal)

1st Giant Planet Complex, triggered this eve, Jupiter can promise but not deliver without very special conditions, most likely unstated. Do not sign! Do not accept without a delay to check fine print. No need trying so hard if they keep changing conditions (see below).

(the Sun in Aries hard aspects Mars / Uranus. 20 Cardinal, 5 Mutable)

Triggered late Saturday, the Hitman has an unsympathetic job to do, a quick shot with no staying power. So, don’t be surprised at the made up, illogical rationale used (see above). The goon only sees a paycheque (payoff), not you.

 

Tuesday – Saturday, 10-14 April. (Moon too confident in Aquarius, too impatient in Pisces, too reasonable in Aries. Venus trine Mars, then Venus sextile Neptune hard aspecting Jupiter / Saturn, then so does Mars. 13-15 degrees, 28 degrees – 0 degree of All Signs)

Soft aspects make this easy, but only if absolutely everything fits or falls into place, since Neptune can be a Spoiler. Harsh treatment at the outset is preferred, since benefits lurk in the background. But, if this seems too made to order, take your time so it can mature, or take it not at all, but savour this as entertainment. But, what seems out of reach now grows, appreciates.

(Neptune in Pisces hard aspects Jupiter / Saturn. 15 Mutable, 0 Fixed)

2nd Giant Planet Complex, triggered Thursday, dreams (Nep) come true only by tons (Jup) of patience (Sat), and careful painstaking steps to overcome dire circumstances. You better have a meticulous plan, and definitely not wing it (high flying birds crash and burn with only 1).

(the Sun in Aries soft aspects retrograde Mercury / Saturn – Mars. 22-25 Cardinal, 7-10 Mutable)

Yes, after their alignment, Mars comes 2ndClear debris and deadwood (Sat) first before you plant new (Mars) seeds. Tear out useless rot. This demands ruthless adherence to proven principles before practicality can take hold. Started late Wednesday with a New Moon focus.

 

Sunday, 15 April. (New Moon shifting gears in Aries. See above re the Sun. Mercury stationary, turning direct in Aries. 4 not 3 Cardinal, 19 not 18 Fixed)

Triggered early Saturday, this reign of bafflegab, a moment of disruption and confusion, is over. With the deep stir that gave new perspectives for some, can we get on with something fresh?

 

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 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 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 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.

Nota Bene: Cosmic rays are penetrating Earth’s atmosphere more than at any time seen in the Space Age. A “remarkably weak” Sun still trudges downward toward Solar Minimum, due next year. This can affect people’s health, with cosmic rays linked to cardiac arrhythmia.

Your Four Personal Points are, in order of importance:

The Ascendant, the Mid-heaven, 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 birth place.  We live on the Earth, not the Sun or the Moon.

The Ascendant, also called Your Rising Sign, is more important 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 your “face”.
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:
Card: 
Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn)
Fix: Fixed Signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius)
Mut: 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.

Nota Bene: Primitive vs. Advanced levels of expression for the Signs of the Zodiac have been discussed for centuries. We are beyond textbook now, linking Proton Storms to Primitive levels of Astrological expression. In other words, when protons reign, much gets reduced, closer to basic instincts.

These storms cannot be predicted yet. Only continuing observations help refine the forecasts. See, Astrology is not fortune telling, but more like an Emotional Weather Report.    Please get an update before your stuff hits the fan. Astrologers Plan-It. Plan yours.
