Mars Opposes Neptune – a Deepening Crisis Week of September 30-October 6 2015


This week there is a Grand Trine in Earth signs, and from the Earth sign Virgo, and an opposition to Neptune from Mars and Jupiter. Jupiter has increased power due to the role in the Grand Trine. Results are showing increased material help for the wounded, needy and migrant families. Funding requests are being met from interested private donors. This week may be a bit of a roller-coaster ride for some folks, as migrant, health and legal issues are brought into focus.

Wednesday September 30th – The Moon enters Taurus where it will be trine to Mars and then Jupiter and together with Jupiter the Moon also makes a Grand Trine to Pluto. This can lead to a transformation of power, as the Pluto in Capricorn holds the reigns. It could be Putin or Obama or the UN, it could be a momentary transfer with profound meaning. We may get insight into our own past, and family configurations. Large groups can help with funding, as the Earth signs relate to physical needs, and actions that are will be magnified with Jupiter’s strength and purpose with Mars direction. Less inhibition allows for insight, and in-depth understanding of powers at work.

Thursday October 1st – The Grand trine of yesterday is replaced by a square aspect (harsh aspect) from the Moon to Venus, causing friction, and a trine from the Moon in Taurus to Ceres in Capricorn, as more community support is involved. The methods applied help to bring a shift and solutions are being found to dramatic social and personal problems. As Mars approaches its transit of Jupiter in Virgo, Neptune in Pisces opposes the mid-point of the two Virgo planets. This increases vacillation on issues, action (Mars) becomes diffused (Neptune), even as the analytical results (Virgo a sign ruled by Mercury) accumulate. Mars (action) will catch up to Jupiter (social awareness) in mid October. This could lead to the implementation of social network of programs to address the issues at the root level. However, it is only in mid-November that retrograde Neptune finally changes direction. A flare-up of the symptoms in October could precede the implementation, as Mars (aggressive actions) combines with Jupiter (inflammation). The Moon enters Gemini late in the day, where it opposes Saturn in Sagittarius. The controlling factors (Saturn) are brought to bear and force may be called out (Moon in Gemini), as legal hurdles (Saturn in Sag) are removed. Saturn in Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, which opposes Neptune, as described above.

Friday October 2nd – As the Moon is Gemini will be in square (90 deg) aspect to Mars and Jupiter today, as well as to Neptune in Pisces, this could instigate an inflammation of issues, perhaps through discussions and writings that are inflammatory (Moon trines Sun and Mercury in Libra), which bring out the urgency of finding solutions to the conflicting matter, to a decaying and worsening situation (Neptune opposed to Jupiter and Mars). Discussions of human rights (Uranus in Aries), legal rights in the US and refugee status abroad occupy the journalists and government and private agencies as the Moon in 2nd decant of Gemini)is in a sextile aspect to Uranus, as well as a square aspect to Chiron in Pisces. The issues are complex. Suffering must be internalized in the experience of the healer. Then there is a greater obligation to heal.

Saturday October 3rd – The Moon in the 3rd decant of Gemini is in a sextile aspect to Venus in Leo, increasing pride and individual success stories. To take effect, general solutions must be applied to individual cases. Some results are encouraging, and will strengthen the case for a wider application of measures taken. Late in the day, the Moon enters the sign of its rulership, Cancer. Here it is more effective in understanding developmental issues in children, and in empathy with social concerns. Conflicts begin, however, as the next day dawns.

Sunday October 4th – Disciplinary actions can be effective now, as Mercury retro is in square aspect to the Moon. Tough love, or punishments that do not exceed the just measure of the crime, need to be accepted, while some sentences need to be adjusted to the crime and individual. The Moon sextile to Mars and trine to Neptune may be able to clear up some misunderstandings. A more aggressive approach can deepen the sufferings. As the Moon moves to a square aspect with the Sun in Libra, a more balanced approach would be advised. A simultaneous sextile to Jupiter in Virgo, may present some critical evidence or opinions on the matter. The Third Quarter phase is reached as the Moon is in square aspect to the Sun in Libra. Issues can now be disseminated.

Monday October 5th – The Moon in Virgo is now set to act against the diverse issues of and problematic situation. Following a tradition (Saturn) will provide the structure for finding a path suitable for development. The structure of the path allows for individual expression as well, and a firm philosophical power of attraction (Saturn in Sagittarius). Jupiter is approaching aspect to Pluto in Capricorn, calling for a wider, more universal appeal to the institutional power, as the the Moon opposes Pluto – individual choices may be sacrificed to the over-all inclusiveness of the institutional power. A square aspect from the Moon to Uranus typifies that individualistic response. Can exceptions be made to the rule to accommodate everyone?

Tuesday October 6th – The Moon in a trine aspect to Chiron in Pisces, and traveling on to the third decant of Cancer, where it will be in opposition to Ceres, and then semisextile to Venus in Leo. Drawing on past experience, while not neglecting the greater social good, a workable solution must be found. Mercury retrograde in Libra, approaches a sextile aspect with Saturn in Sagittarius. On a selective ( Saturn) and reasoned argument, some issues can be further refined under this configuration. A greater disbursement of aid (Neptune in Pisces opposed by Mars) will be allowed only if it is proven that the benefits are for the greater social good. (Ceres in Capricorn).

Best wishes for a Super Successful Week!
