Thanks to a friend of the site, I was reminded that right now we have SEVEN septile-series aspects in play this weekend into tomorrow involving the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune!
Currently, plus or minus a day, we have Mercury septile Mars and triseptile Neptune with Mars triseptile Neptune. We also have Venus biseptile Jupiter, as well as Sun septile Saturn and triseptile Uranus with Saturn triseptile Uranus. These seven septile-series aspects are no doubt precipitating many choices in our lives, as well as clear forks in the road wherever they fall in our charts. In short, something’s got to give!!
Of the aspects noted, as of 2 pm PDT, 5 pm EDT, 10 pm Greenwich Sunday, Mercury is 51d 48m (septile) to Mars, 154d 20m (triseptile) to Neptune, and Mars is 153d 52m (triseptile) to Neptune. These orbs are as tight as it gets, and the configuration holds through Tuesday.
As you know, this is another action beat in the Grand Irrationality, discussed in the article Astrology in September 2013 - Mars Triggering the Grand Irrationality Beginning the Square to Saturn. When you’re done here, please revisit that article since it goes into what’s been going on the past week, and why what’s happened is so important for our future.
This is directly affecting the life areas where we have early Leo, late Virgo, and early Pisces, as well as the life areas in our charts where we have planets and houses associated with Aries, Gemini, Virgo, Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Pisces. Exact zones of influence are 3-5 Pisces, 24-26 Aries, 15-17 Gemini, 6-8 Leo, 27-29 Virgo, and 19-21 Scorpio. While it may seem like there are metaphoric traffic jams going on, it’s helping us to see what’s melted down and what is “freeing us from a narrow destiny.”
Venus is now 101d 56m to Jupiter. This is an exact biseptile, and directly affects life areas where we have mid-Cancer and late Libra, as well as the life areas in our charts where we have planets and houses associated with Taurus, Libra, Sagittarius, and Pisces. Exact zones of influence are 15-17 Cancer, 6-8 Virgo, 27-29 Libra, 19-21 Sagittarius, 11-13 Aquarius 2-4 Aries, and 23-25 Taurus. This is a turning point in our personality integration and ability to know and feel the life that’s all around us to recalibrate any sense of aloneness or isolation or separation from Life itself.
I’ve also written extensively about the third configuration since it was highly active in the last New Moon chart, so please revisit those articles to see how this configuration works. The Sun is now 51d 27m (septile) to Saturn, 154d 52m (triseptile) to Uranus, and Saturn is 153d 41m (triseptile) to Uranus.
This directly affects life areas where we have mid-Aries, mid-Virgo, and early Scorpio, as well as the life areas in our charts where we have planets and houses associated with Leo, Capricorn, and Aquarius. Exact zones of influence are 16-18 Virgo, 7-9 Scorpio, 28-30 Sagittarius, 20-22 Aquarius, 11-13 Aries, 2-4 Gemini, and 24-26 Cancer. This shines a light on the long wave process of a) breaking from the past to be our individuality, b) reversing magnetism based in seeing a new life order, and c) confronting how we’re needlessly holding ourselves back and breaking up old complexes to become more whole.
From the sequence set into motion by the Moon and/or the Ascendant at this time, Venus biseptile Jupiter is the first to trigger, followed by the Sun-Saturn-Uranus group, followed by the Mercury-Mars-Neptune group, which is followed again by the Venus-Jupiter zone and so forth. So when you see and feel a Venus-Jupiter lesson or realization or choice or it feels like “destiny is on the move,” you may expect the next lesson, realization, choice, or fork in the road will involve Sun, Saturn, and Uranian things, followed by Mercury, Mars, and Neptune related things.
Given it impacts all the signs of the zodiac, and therefore every area of our chart, it's a pretty intense 4-5 day run, wouldn’t you say?
