Mercury square Neptune will occur on June 14th, 2017 at 03:28:58 UT (06.13. 23:28:58 EDT), in constellational Taurus/Aquarius, sidereal Taurus/Aquarius and tropical Gemini/Pisces. Gemini Mercury square Pisces Neptune indicates a chaotic mind, liability to lack of memory, indolence and, if Saturn is also afflicted (as it actually is), disposition to dream the time away, sometimes alcoholism or using drugs. There is often a restless desire for fame, yearnings towards unreal and unaccomplishable goals and an inability to fit in anywhere. With an afflicted Jupiter, this aspect predisposes to fraud, deception, mendacity and slander; with a strongly afflicted Sun, because of the weakened self-esteem and self-worth, the native may incline to commit suicide. >> More Info
Sun enters tropical Gemini on May 20th, 2017 at 20:30:52 UT (16:30:52 EDT), it will be staying at the same time at 5° 01’ of sidereal Taurus (by Fagan-Bradley) and in conjunction with the star cluster called the ’Pleiades’ or the ’Seven Sisters’ located in the back of the celestial Taurus within the real constellational framework (see zoomable chart).
The most important aspect of Sun: at the moment of this ingress, Sun will make a semi-square to the Aries Venus (which is in exile) that is the most disharmonic aspect between Sun and Venus (as Venus’ maximum elongation is only 47°). It indicates, among other things, an inclination for silly emotional adventures or intrigues, thus it would be well advised to be careful and avoid the risky and unsafe situations. This is all the more warning because Jupiter will be in opposition with Venus, indicating the probability of the grave violation of some essential ’inner’ or ’outer’ laws…
This astrological background remains in force till June 21st when Sun will leave Gemini entering Cancer. >> More Info
Full Moon will occur on April 11th, 2017 at 06:08:02 UT (02:08:02 EDT) in the tropical Libra, sidereal Virgo (jyotish: Kanya) and in the Chitra nakshatra. Within the Vedic Lunar Mansion System, Chitra is the 14th nakshatra – named from the fixed star ’Chitra’ which we know as „Spica” (alpha Virginis). Its Lord: Mangala (Mars), its Deity: Vishvakarman, ’The Celestial Architect’ and its Symbol is the Pearl. At the time of the Full Moon, Moon (Chandra) will be in conjunction with Jupiter (Guru). By traditional interpretations, Chandra in Chitra nakshatra ’gives’ ’… beautiful body, attractive eyes, artistic skills, intuitive inclinations, good opportunities in life, charm and glamour, lifelong thirst for knowledge. If Moon is strongly afflicted, inordinate sexual desires, smug and arrogant character may appear. >>> More Info
Sun opposite Jupiter will occur on April 7th, 2017 at 21:38:52 UT (17:38:52 EDT) in tropical Libra/Aries, sidereal and constellational Virgo/Pisces (view zoomable attached chart). It means, among other things, that these days you have the chance to admire Jupiter about midnight near M.C., id est, at its culminating point. Jupiter, like a shining brilliant, actually seems to be an exquisite ornament to the garment of the constellational Virgo, near her first ’marker star’ called ’Spica’. As Moon will be almost full (circa 90%) on the night of 7-8th April, well within reach of the constellation Virgo (centrally located in the constellational Leo), it is recommended to observe that on the night of 5-6th April. Do not miss this celestial scenery, have clear skies. >>> More Astro Info

Aries Mercury opposite Libra Jupiter evokes the famous topos of the Wild West, the ’Lonely Hero’ or ’Enforcer’ who is a fearless and hard-boiled character, often involved in vengeance plots. Once in the past he had suffered certain injuries and hereby confronted the worldly unfairness. He is closely attached to the principles of the morality and the justice (Libra Jupiter), but at the same time he knows he is the only man having the guts (Aries Mercury) to re-establish the damaged ‘world order’. The best-known figure of this type is ’Harmonica’ (Charles Bronson) in the unequalled ’spaghetti’ western movie called ’Once Upon a Time in the West’ (1968).
Abney Park also shaped this type, without the personal motive of revenge, within a Victorian milieu. The ’Victorian Vigilante’ who is a voluntary ’patrol’ of London in the night, always ready to fight for justice – and for the kicks. ’Each night as I go walking underneath the lamplight, / I bring my baritsu and I’m ready for a fight, / My boots are shiny brown / And my cane’s of oak, / I’ll unleash some hurting on you, / Justice I’ll invoke! // ‘Cause I’m a Victorian vigilante, / Bring some justice on your head / From the palace to the riverside, / For your troubles you’ll get bled…’ 🙂 >>> More Astro Info
