Check Your Chart, for the Week of 25 September  2017

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

Sooner or later, you can NOT keep upping the ante. Nobody can. Something has to break. Just when you thought it couldn’t get worse, it does. Again. Last week, multiple times, focusing on, targeting 2 days, Tuesday and Saturday. As always, it’s on the lead-up.

Three disasters and a farce hit Tuesdayanother quake hits Mexico, another hurricane rips Puerto Rico to the core, the Racist Dotard threatens annihilation on NK (in the UN no less, a Geneva Convention violation), and ZombieCare tries to fail again.  And, those in charge seem to think none of this is about, or has, consequences.

Consequences are increasingly apparent, including finally in the Public Mind’s Eye. Upgrade building codes so school kids don’t get crushed when Mother Earth shakes. Don’t build on flood plains, or lose it all and get no insurance. More fossil burning threatens Ecocide.

It is racism at its worst to dismiss millions of casualties because they are Not Us, aka Genocide. It is profoundly sad to see the biggest military force on the Planet (several times over) get more funds while slashing protectionsfor air, water, food, and people’s lives.

Then, Saturday (or Friday late if you’re picky), the War (Mars) with Words (Mercury) shifted gears, caused widespread reactions, and various forms of retaliation, besides another round of quakes, aftershocks, and brutal storms. First it was Mercury (Tues) triggering the Giant Planet Super Complex. Then, it was Mars (Sat), God of Vengeance. Threatening the Iran nuclear deal gave an Iranian missile launch in return, and NK no incentive to back down.

Threatening “the Son of a Bitch” with “You’re fired!” for protesting racist treatment, and uninviting a sports star already declining, caused the NFL, the NBA, and MLB to massively take a knee. Overt Racism, and its retaliation, is off to the races (pun intended).

Something has to break. The GOP is in a Money Drought since they have NO wins. Many fractures feed on each other if Repeal ObamaCare fails. Hopes of Playing Nice increase as Loverly Venus aspects the Super Complex later Friday, but it may be too late. Bet on much to get very Personal.

Much hinges on next Wednesday! The clash of Social Issues, the core of this year’s Super Complex, is fed mightily by the Sun, as Jupiter challenges the Fractured Duo of Uranus and Neptune. In the big Political Arena, affecting not just mom and pop, or you and me, but millions to billions, it is a foot race between the Many Weak (Uranus aspecting Neptune) and the Powerful Few (Jupiter). The Too Few want to dominate. The Too Many want to survive.

Jupiter opposes Uranus the 2nd time since March. This is the core of Big (Jup) Changes (Ura), with massive personal effects, sweeping the globe. Expect a reordering of Social Structures, from politics to business to families. Expect every stubborn control-type, stuck in their status-quo Happy Cocoon, to get upset. Expect a lot of nervous posturing (twitching like they’re guilty?), starting this week, climaxing under the next New Moon.

Changes big and small are upon us All. It depends how we handle, manage, and use them. Breaks, breakups, massive reordering and restructuring will happen. For example, fossil fuel use will collapse within a decade. What a clash of cultures with technology: squander vs. sustainable, top down vs. collective voice, me vs. us, “nothing personal” as it gets very personal,… Big Changes.


This Week: Like a dam breaking, it starts with a crack, before it becomes a flood. Jupiter, aka Daddy Big Bucks, aspects the Fractured Two. Any scramble for rapid wins, social or monetary, or starting any new business (except wide-reaching and/or international) in the next few weeks is fraught with ‘complications’. ‘Good on paper’ does not translate easily to ‘it’s happening’.

            Speculations, like many conspiracy theories, are briefly entertaining but short on lasting Reality. The midweek wild, wide swings of trust and security, or lack thereof, prove distinctly disappointing. Wait till a Better Offer appears, after Friday afternoon.


Nota Bene: While the Sun riffled Earth’s magnetosphere, and auroras danced, it also blew a Primitive Storm of protons on Sunday. Let that knock us back a space into re-tired.

Monday, 25 September. (slow Moon teased in Sagittarius. Mercury in Virgo squares Saturn in Sagittarius. 21-22 Mutable, 6-7 Fixed)

You’re dumped. Look elsewhere. Faint Hope is just that, not likely, despite all the wishing and pleading. Sentiment won’t overcome Reality. Pay attention to what’s proven, not a promise.


Tuesday – Thursday, 26-28 September. (apogee Moon confused in Sagittarius, snapped aware in Capricorn. Jupiter in Libra opposed Uranus in Aries, both hard aspecting Neptune in Pisces. 27 Cardinal, 12 Mutable)

The core of this year’s Giant Planet Super Complex. Effects building for a month, this seeks to hide what is going on, including the painfully obvious. For any Dominant trying to make a point, use extra caution for what could blow upin your face. For those weak and undefended, sow a zillion seeds that reveal, meaning exceptional strength grows by numbersRecruit your army. Exploit a problem. Great for reaction, not action. Draw them out, no need to chaseafter.

(the Sun in Libra hard aspects Jupiter – Uranus / Mars – Neptune. 4-6 Cardinal, 19-21 Fixed)

Big Challenge to Confidence and Credibility. The degrees for this are powerfully focused, intense but shorter lived (days, not weeks) than the Complex. More than ruffled, feathers are ripe for plucking, meaning someone gets one Hell of a going over, ripped to shreds, plus a battered reputation. ‘Tis much better to give than receive, but passing it downstream to the ‘defenceless’ backfires, compounds problem issues.


Friday, 29 September. (Moon rebuilding in late Capricorn. Venus in Virgo opposed Neptune in Pisces, hard aspecting Jupiter in Libra opposed Uranus in Aries. 12 Mutable, 27 Cardinal)

Just like you can’t give up what you never had, all that glitters and promises can be a sham. This is a seduction by a Major Player reaching for the farm and your pension. No matter the come on, nothing is personal for such an easy mark.


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.

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.

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:
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.

If you like this forecast, let others know.  SEND IT TO THEM.

If you have comments or questions, LET ME KNOW.
