Recent events and reports reminded me to remind you that this time is very strange and unpredictable, with the possibilities of unexpected explosions of every sort.
First, remember that we're directly under the influence of the recent Total Lunar Eclipse. I have seen quite a bit of "melt down" that seems to mirror the influences I wrote about in those three articles. Just remember that sometimes it's better to walk away than get hooked by unhealthy influences and people. Add the recent Solar Eclipse and we're in the immediacy of major shutdowns! (You can find out more via the links to that Solar Eclipse in part 2 of the recent Lunar Eclipse article series.)
But why now? What's up right now that makes this such a strange time? Among the influences are Mercury direct in early Sag making a septile to Venus for weeks to come, Venus just square Saturn, and Uranus direct beginning a long term square to Pluto. And, yesterday and today Mars is at 17 Virgo, the degree of the "volcanic eruption."
I elaborated on the Mercury septile Venus in play for the next few weeks in the article Mercury Stationary Direct Affecting December 2011 and January-February 2012 - Learning and Teaching Skills That Show Our Individual Genius. In it you'll find the degree spans most affected between now and January.
Also, the Sun will begin to make a biseptile to Mars in a few hours. That aspect will last for about the next week, so plan accordingly. By a week from now, the Sun and Mars will be in their respective zones of the Grand Irrationality, expect things to get pretty strange! And to cap all this off, we have another irrationality pattern created by the recent Saturn triseptile Uranus!
Since these patterns involve the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto, we find ALL signs are impacted. Yes, this cuts across the Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces sectors in our maps.
That makes for FOUR irrationality zones all active simultaneously: the one created by Mercury-Venus; the initial one created by the Sun and Mars (before they trigger the Grand Irrationality); the one created by Saturn and Uranus, and the Grand Irrationality anchored by Neptune and Pluto set off 7 times a month and at least 21 more times a year.
To give you a sense of which zones are activated right now, here they are:
Mercury and Venus make these zones hot: 3-7 Sag, 24-28 Capricorn, 16-20 Pisces, 8-12 Taurus, 29 Gemini-3 Cancer, 20-24 Leo, and 12-16 Libra.
Saturn and Uranus make these zones hot right now: 18-22 Sagittarius, 9-13 Aquarius, 1-5 Aries, 23-27 Taurus, 14-18 Cancer, 5-9 Virgo, and 26-30 Libra,
Sun and Mars make these zones hot right now: 27 Sagittarius-1 Capricorn, 19-23 Aquarius, 11-15 Aries, 2-6 Gemini, 23-27 Cancer, 15-19 Virgo, and 6-10 Scorpio.
The Grand Irrationality now makes the following zones hot: 5-9 Capricorn, 27 Aquarius-1 Pisces, 19-23 Aries, 10-14 Gemini, 1-5 Leo, 22-26 Virgo, and 13-17 Scorpio.
(One note - some of these spans will result in a septile series aspect at the front or back end, but not both. In other words, my Sun is at 12 Aries. The Sun is currently moving through the biseptile but Mars is almost past its triseptile. In another case, I know someone with a Sun at 1 Leo. While Pluto made a triseptile from June through late November and Neptune has made a triseptile from September to now, soon it will be more in the orb of a quincunx, and Pluto will be well out of range. )
I doubt any of us are free from at least one of these influences! Especially watch when the Moon transits through any of these zones, since it clearly indicates an almost constant triggering of these various types of irrational energies.
Remember, though, that in a week the Mercury and Venus zones will have moved about 5-7 degrees later in those signs. By then the Sun will be exactly biseptile Mars, with their zones moving forward about 4-6 degrees. After that the Sun fires up the Grand Irrationality just in time for New Year's Eve!
After that, Mercury and Venus both move into the Cap and Aquarius-Pisces zones of the Grand Irrationality in the second week of January, and just after that Mars goes stationary retrograde in late January in a wide but significant triseptile to Neptune setting those zones into activity via the stationary degree.
So figure the zones for the Mercury-Venus and Sun-Mars configurations are dynamic and will change quickly. The zones for Saturn-Uranus and the Grand Irrationality will move much more slowly, and by mid January Saturn and Uranus will not be so close as they've been, though they'll be back in orb by mid-February.
Choose wisely, since there are many choices to make, including which forks in the road of destiny we'll take, and there is a LOT of craziness in the air. It's a weird form of "Groundhog Day" in this corner of the Twilight Zone! And the beat goes on......
