SLR 6/12/2020

Post by Jim Eshelman » Thu Jun 11, 2020 7:35 am

The new SLR occurs June 12, 2020, 10:49 PM PDT. I'll likey to feeling it by tonight. It will likely be a pivotal "phase change" return with the partile Moon-Sun square and it's weighted toward Saturn. I've added a section just for Moon aspects even though they aren't foreground and most of them aren't partile (they seem a setup for Mars-Neptune rising opposite Moon in the Demi in two weeks). Though not foreground, transiting Uranus is now in partile to natal Saturn.

Here is an interesting technical puzzle to examine (though it may not be obvious given the Saturn strength): It has long been evident, both to statistical examination and empirical confirmation that only conjunctions, oppositions, and squares operate in these returns. However, is this because of the intrinsic nature of the Dynamic class of aspects or because (barring partility) aspects appear not operative unless both planets are foreground? (The latter nearly always limits us to conjunctions, oppositions, and squares.) I raise this because, this month, my natal Venus, Jupiter, and Uranus are all foreground and are natally in close trine. Will I have distinctive expressions of Venus-Jupiter and Venus-Uranus that can be distinguished from merely having natal Venus pretty close to MC (or transiting Venus square natal Moon partile in mundo)?

I must say that the foreground planets form a really interesting group of aspects, though not in all cases pleasant (especially contemplating the Demi in two weeks).

Demi-SLR 6/26/2020

Post by Jim Eshelman » Thu Jun 11, 2020 8:10 am

I'm going to do the unusual step of working up my Demi-SLR now - to get some reality on it (because what's visible at a glance will leave me sitting quite worried for the next two weeks - which, I admit, is one of the better possible results of the rising Saturn in the SLR :).) Combining Saturn from the SLR and Mars-Neptune from the Demi gives me a complete set of malefics; but how close is everything? What are the deeper relationships of things? - Notice that the Mars-Neptune midpoint is on Asc to the minute of arc and opposes Moon quite closely.

There is at least one surprise: Among my natal planets, the chart rotates so that I get a close natal Moon-Pluto opposition. - Another interesting technicality is that while transiting Neptune is in orb of close conjunction with natal Moon, the Moon-Mars aspects only exists in mundo and with transiting Moon. This difference might be slight, but I think it quite worth noting. This may, for example, be more a case of people being "steaming" around me and me "being in hot water" (Moon-Mars around me) than of an assault on my health (Mars to natal Moon). - Natal Moon-Pluto becomes the closest foreground aspect in the chart!

For perspective, Marion's June 26 SLR has Venus square MC partile as its main characteristic (at a glance), so whatever is happening to me probably will have little negative impact on her. It's all on me, not on things that affect us collectively.

t Mars sq. MC -0°28'
t Moon on Dsc -1°13'

-- t Mars/Neptune = Asc 0°01'

t Neptune on Asc +3°08'
r Moon on Asc +7°16'

-- r Moon-Pluto op. 1°25' in mundo

-- t Moon-Mars op. 1°56' in mundo

I got one of my lenses back yesterday - the other won't be in until next week. So I have half my correctible vision restored.

The one clear Saturn manifestation so far was that I paid $1,000.00 yesterday for the replacement lenses. (Technically this was still under the old SLR, with Moon 4° before the conjunction, but my experience is that these are effective about 24 hours before they occur.)

BTW... a speculation... I've thought for some time (from an example here and there) that Jupiter-Pluto aspects have to do with healing in some fashion. I've been drawn to interpret the recent mundane astrology importance of Jupiter-Pluto as a focus on making wrong things better, adding to my standard interpretation ideas like reconstructing a social order, recovery, healing, or correction of wrong (unjust, dangerous, undermined) conditions, turning a corner, reversing the tide, and healing disease. (So far this month, it looks like I'm right.) In medical astrology, it has sometimes seemed that Pluto is cellular regeneration and Jupiter is "doctor makes it better" kind of stuff.

Anyway, with that setup... If this SLR is showing the expensive replacement of the lenses, Saturn shows the expense and inconvenience but the foreground partile Jupiter-Pluto conjunction might be showing the "repair" characteristics.

That is great news!! So happy for you.

I agree that Jupiter/Pluto is a great indicator of healing.
It very much rings true in my own life.

Yay for being able to see again, at least partly.

I like that interpretation of Jupiter-Pluto.
IN SMA (page 1050) you say it's Challenge to Prevailing Ideology, including Regime Change, and Blow to the Economy.
I think it could be seen as change in the prevailing ideology and change in the economic basis. Investors, the stock market and bankers hate and fear change of any kind and will crash the financial markets over any big change in the economy (and some small ones.)

Most of the change in this country is from healing, no matter what it looks like to old white men and financiers.

Agreed. BTW, I don't remember if I rewrote my Jupiter-Pluto standard interpretation before or after the last version of SMA, but here's how the paragraph (in mundane astrology) reads at the moment. It has gotten more complicated but I think it still shows a central idea with other details (drawn from history) wrapped around it:
Challenging beliefs, traditions, values, and the political-cultural systems that sustain them (ideological extremism arises). Political undermining or reversals (leaders attacked, removed; fall of regimes; reversals in political dominance; covert operations). Reconstructing a social order (ideological zeal; defense of justice, liberty, democracy). Effective alliance; ethnic or nationalist coalescing, founding a nation. – Money crisis (blow to economic conditions: reversals or ruin). Recovery, healing, or correction (by heroic measures) of wrong (unjust, dangerous, undermined) conditions, turning a corner, reversing the tide (healing disease). – Outlandishly freaky weather events.

Re: SLR 6/12/2020

Post by Jim Eshelman » Fri Jun 26, 2020 8:09 am

This has been a difficult SLR compared to others this year. The eye problem, thought sufficiently resolved for the present, isn't - I woke up from a nap to find the left lens missing and we spent an hour searching all the bedding for it without finding it, so it will have to be replaced again. (I haven't called the optometrist yet.) The right lens is suddenly not seating well for some reason (it's quite strange), so I have much more blurring than when it's working right. Net effect, I'm getting through the day again with about a third of my usual vision, which is physically and psychologically draining (it always surprises me how taxing it is to have compromised vision). This has brought additional financial strains - not for the present, but with the anticipation of them in the near future. Marion and I had a rare fight yesterday (we moved through/past it, all is well; but it wasn't pleasant at the time). So yeah, it just kinda sucks :)

So far, I have no suggestion that the natal foreground Venus-Jupiter and Venus-Uranus trines are operative (I raised this as a point of observation for the month).

With all of this, I am distinctly NOT looking forward to my incoming Mars & Neptune themed Demi-SLR (I should be feeling it by today). On the one hand, Marion's charts are positive - her new SLR has Venus angular - but her SSR has Saturn transiting the IC for where it set up and square Ascendant for here at home, so we may feel a blow. Other than ongoing risks of getting sick, my most vulnerable area is a work matter tonight and tomorrow: Our building's annual powerdown is occurring, which means I have to take our entire network and other systems down tonight, then go back at 6 AM to start bringing them back up, It sometimes takes more than one try to bring everything up correctly, so "risk of something going wrong" is a fair statement. Were something (for example) to happen to my right lens in the middle, it would become seriously a problem, so I know what I have to guard against. - Then there is always the possibility that all the Moon-Mars-Neptune is just anxiety and emotional impact (which, I can already tell, is harder to defend against right now). - Oh, well, I'll definitely learn something or other that is new from the next week or two.

Here's the incoming Demi again for reference:

Keep us informed Jim. Do you see/isolate any one main return chart, transit, progression, direction symbolizing/timing all the troubles you keep experiencing with your eye sight?

Nothing in particular. It's not that a health thing has deteriorated - the eyes have been this way for two or three years - it's the fiddling with the lenses and replacements etc. (essentially prosthetics). Seems just to be part of the "things get touch sometimes" stuff, so fluctuating a bit with Saturn, retreating with benefics, etc.

No. Each one is a custom fit. The right lens wouldn't even physically stay in the left eye.

Besides, then I'd be without vision in the right eye.

I don't think Demi-Solars are important enough. I consider that they help divide the SSR year into quarters to see where SSR symbolism is duplicated, but for years haven't thought they have any independent value.

I understand Jim--but pretty good Saturn symbolism with the persistence eye inhibition with the lost lens for the quarter you are under.

The persistence of the eye condition will be for the rest of my life (unless, at some point, I get cornea transplants). It doesn't take any astrological stuff to make it persist. It's like gray hair :)

There is nothing to do for it except have the right lenses (at $1,000 a pair) or, at some point perhaps, have cornea transplants.

Well, the lenses are indeed a big deal in that I barely have vision without them (just shapes, colors, and the ability to read only with non-tiny text that has to be held 2-3" from the eye). So not having them means I have little vision. Each lens has to be individually manufactured custom to my eye, there aren't generic lenses.

But the eye condition itself is permanent.

The lens issue isn't persistent so much as recurring. It's more of the nature of some home appliance breaking and needing to be replaced, and there have been several instances of that this year. But, on average, I've lost lenses two to three times a year since I had to start wearing them, though not always at this level of cost. Virus conditions also make all sorts of things take longer, including replacement manufacturing. (At the moment, I haven't even bothered calling the optometrist, I'm too busy.)

Sorry to hear about your impaired vision. Have you had them checked for laser repair? If they would be eligible?
I'm going for that kind of check later this month to check if I can get rid of the glasses I've had to use since I was about 42. The laser repair costs around 2-3000 $.

It's not an interior issue - not subject to laser surgery. It's a warped cornea. Solution is either a domed lens that has the effect of making the vision surface spherical again, or replace the corneas.

The science is rather cool, if basic: Normally the cornea is smooth so that the eyeball remains essentially spherical. In a not uncommon condition (keratoconus) the cornea becomes warped, irregular, or otherwise distorted. (It usually happens only in the young, rarely progressing after age 40, so mine is unusual only in that it came in later in life. A customized hard contact lens fitting over the cornea returns the eye + contact to its original spheroidal shape. The lens plus the tears that flow in to fill it have the same optical properties as the cornea, so looking out through lens + tears + warped cornea is much the same as looking out through a normal cornea.

This doesn't address other eye issues like near-sightedness and far-sightedness, just the optical properties of the cornea.

Surprisingly, this was not cumulative and was barely noticed. It's a potent chart with close angularities and aspects, but one of the biggest duds I remember in a while. Nothing else has been occurring that isn't readily explained by the full lunar.

SLR 7/10/20

Post by Jim Eshelman » Tue Jul 07, 2020 8:13 am

My next SLR occurs Friday, July 10, 2020 at 6:00 AM, when I will surely be at my home. Though Saturn (partile opposite my Jupiter-Uranus) is what catches attention first, transiting Sun and Jupiter are the most angular planets. (However, I tend to be financially pessimistic given the combination of Saturn to Jupiter-Uranus + Jupiter-Pluto.) As usual, there are interesting mundane aspects that might not have been suspected without careful calculation (such as Saturn closely square natal Sun). - It's a lot of mixed stuff tumbling all over each other, so probably some eventual mix of "there's tough, 'hard times' stuff but protections and helps and, meanwhile, just keep integrity up."

r Neptune on IC -4°51'
r Mars sq. MC -1°38'
t Pluto sq. MC -1°34'
t Jupiter sq. MC -0°31'
----------------------------
t Sun on EP +0°18'
t Saturn on Dsc +3°00'

r Jupiter on Asc +3°43'
r Uranus on Asc +4°09'
r Sun on IC +5°01'

t Pluto conj. r Mars 0°07'
r Jupiter-Uranus conj. 0°17'
t Jupiter-Pluto conj. 0°40' in mundo
t Saturn op. r Jupiter 0°43' in mundo
r Sun-Uranus sq. 0°52' in mundo

t Saturn op. r Uranus 1°03'
t Jupiter conj. r Mars 1°07'
t Sun sq. r Sun 1°17'
r Sun-Jupiter sq. 1°18' in mundo
r Uranus-Neptune sq. 2°00'
t Saturn sq. r Sun 2°01' in mundo
r Jupiter-Neptune sq. 2°16'
r Mars-Neptune sq. 2°25'
t Pluto sq. r Neptune 2°30'
-----------------------------
t Jupiter sq. r Neptune 3°32'
t Sun-Jupiter op. 3°39' in mundo
t Saturn sq. r Neptune 3°02'
t Sun-Pluto op. 4°19' in mundo
r Mars-Uranus op. 4°25'
r Sun-Mars sq. 4°33' in mundo
r Mars-Jupiter op. 4°41'
r Pluto op. r Uranus 4°29'
t Pluto op. r Jupiter 4°46'


Other partile
t Uranus op. r Mercury 0°13'
t Uranus op. r Saturn 0°40'



Stripping out the wider things, we get (in addition to the non-foreground partiles) we get the fllowing. It seems to boil down to Jupiter-Pluto conj. on my Mars, Saturn op. my Jupiter-Uranus (and all three square Sun somewhat wider). The Jupiter factors are mostly stronger than the Saturn factors, at least by a hair.

r Mars sq. MC -1°38'
t Pluto sq. MC -1°34'

Demi-SLR 7/24/2020

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sat Jul 18, 2020 11:24 am

Because my next Demi-SLR (almost a week off) is very similar to the current SLR (Ascendant within 1° of the SLR Asc, with the outer planets in nearly the same spot), I want to work it up early to see if the proportion of the planetary voices is about the same or different. The Demi-SLR occurs Friday, July 25 at 6:14 AM PDT, surely sheltered in place here. From a glance, I'm sure the feel will be roughly the same, but I'd like to get the subtleties - and that takes a full workup.

I'm happy to see that the continuing mix of Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto still has Jupiter significantly stronger than the also-strong Saturn. Weighting the other way is that there is a distinctive Sun-Saturn opposition foreground (doubled with a Saturn-Sun mundane transit) that has something of an ominous feel, plus a widish Mars-Saturn square and a doubled-up Mars-Pluto (with Mars barely foreground). So... Jupiter leaning, but with double-emphasized Sun-Saturn and Mars-Pluto. But there are also mundane aspects of transiting Sun to natal Jupiter-Uranus disclosed. (I couldn't sort any of this out without a full breakout of the chart!) - Another way to summarize this is that (in different proportions) transiting Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto (boosted by Sun) are aspecting my natal Sun, Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune - on the angles of this month's SLR and Demi-SLR. Whew!

The proportions are indeed different than in the SLR, though not grossly. Even after trimming the wider stuff, there is still a lot going on: Here is the trimmed version (cutting off angular at Class 2 and aspects at Class 1).The bottom line (worthy to learn something from) is that the Saturn aspects to Sun and Jupiter are the strongest aspects, while transiting Jupiter is the most powerful planet - and, woven through this, there is a lot of Mars.

I'm experimenting with a different way of displaying these: a 90° sort of the mundoscope placements of all natal and SLR planets (starting from mid-quadrant), which I'll follow with one in longitude. These will disclose at a glance all angularities, foreground aspects, and other partile aspects. It may, however, turn out to be too damn much work. - Anyway, I'll do one.

Thanks. That's my first impression, too, but I had to experiment.

The real issue is that we can't create a chart display in SF from positions we input. I'd love to have a wheel that shows transiting mundoscope positions in one wheel and natal (precessed) mundoscope positions in the other, but that's not possible - so we lack the visual.

I was trying to create a visual.

My next SLR occurs Thursday, August 6, at 2:04 PM. I expect to be at home. Here is the breakdown. This one is simple, a single aspect.

Marion's concurrent Demi-SLR has transiting Venus setting and natal Jupiter on IC. She's approaching a progressed Moon-Jupiter opposition in October.

Demi-SLR 8/20/20

Post by Jim Eshelman » Thu Aug 20, 2020 8:52 am

My SLR, simple as it is, has been quite on target. I'd rather not give details since it includes other people's secrets (I suppose that's transiting, rather than natal Neptune at play). The new Demi-SLR, which occurs this afternoon at 12:58 PM, is mostly a weaker version of the same thing so I imagine the trends will continue. - Separate from the lunar returns, in the next few days the the Mars-Saturn square occurs exactly on my Neptune and perhaps will dominate most of the next week (probably felt unusually strongly because of Moon and Neptune being foreground). - Jupiter concurrently transits my Sun.

SLR 9/2/20

Post by Jim Eshelman » Tue Sep 01, 2020 6:27 pm

The SLR changes direction. This one is primarily dominated by Venus, surely in anticipation of the vacation we are taking to Sedona this weekend. BTW, if I'd picked a place for my last SSR outside my immediate area, I couldn't have done better than Sedona where transiting Venus is on WP and natal Jupiter-Uranus are a few minutes from IC.

But this thread is about my new SLR that occurs September 2, 2020, at 10:21 PM PDT, so I'll likely be feeling it tonight. It's calculated for here at home.

Demi-SLR 9/16/20

Post by Jim Eshelman » Tue Sep 15, 2020 6:41 pm

The SLR has been primarily our week away. There were many complexities to the story of the trip, and these fit the fine points of the supportive aspects, but it's fair enough to say the angular natal Venus was the center piece.

My Demi-SLR September 16, 2020, 11:53 PM PDT is a rare return chart: It has no angular planets (either natal or transiting) and therefore no foreground aspects. By the most common historic standards, there is nothing at all to read in the chart.

It does have a new Moon, just over 2° wide), which probably will be felt as a cycle change; and it has numerous non-foreground partile aspects that likely will be the primary strong voices of the chart. Here are the aspects:

0°03' t Jupiter sq. r Sun
-- 0°08' t Mercury-Jupiter sq. (mundo)
-- 0°16' t Mercury conj. r Sun
-- 1°00' t Moon-Jupiter sq. (mundo)
0°08' t Pluto conj. r Mars (mundo)
0°14' t Venus sq. r Mercury
0°16' t Uranus op. r Saturn (mundo)
0°37' t Mars sq. r Uranus
-- 0°54' t Mars sq. r Jupiter

Re: Demi-SLR 9/16/20

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sun Sep 27, 2020 9:51 am

The Demi-SLR hasn't been overly active except in the sense that it seems to have blanketed the SLR. The full SLR was very descriptive of the vacation that marked the first half of the month, but none of that character (i.e., nothing unusually strong or out of the way that resembles the chart) has marked the last half of the month (we even cancelled a semi-planned two-day get-away a couple of times for various practical reasons). So I consider the SLR had a blanket thrown over it in the last half of the month.

The non-foreground partile aspects were descriptive enough. With Mercury-Jupiter so exactly aspecting each other and natal Sun, there has been a sort of protection and at least two successful opportunities to get praise at work. I might be finally feeling some of Pluto's transit to Mars - which, in this case, I relate to that new medicine I've been taking for a month and keep thinking I should stop - which has the new symptoms that I wake each morning feeling physically beat-up (as if I've been pounded on) - it feels not too different from dehydration effects except I've been putting much water through my system. This will pass, I'm sure, either on its own or because I decide to stop the medication.

After at least three years of putting it off, I dove into acquiring a new technical skill over the last few days - something that may stretch through the next few weeks, because it's a big subject - that I think might be more representative of Uranus' opposition to my Mercury (which, however, will be much stronger next year; but I have a very strong Mercury-Uranus opposition in this year's SSR, which must just be catching that up here in its last days).

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sun Sep 27, 2020 9:54 am

My new Sidereal Lunar Return will occur next Wednesday, September 30, at 4:42 AM PDT (here at my home, presumably). In terms of angularity, it is every bit as boring as the last Demi-SLR with nothing at all foreground except transiting Neptune - and that, barely so. (Therefore, there are no foreground aspects.)

Saturn is back in orb of square my Neptune. Transiting Jupiter is still partile square my Sun. Etc.

The chart does have Marion's Sun, Moon, and Pluto highlighted on the angles, but I've never found that one person's planets on another's solunars angles means anything. Nonetheless, I mention it just in case experience contradicts that observation this time.

i suppose this lunar has been descriptive enough. Other than things that can be traced directly to the new SSR (lots of delays, blocks, Mercury has - the latest being that one of my main computers got a corrupted security file and I am in the middle of reimaging it and getting everything working again), the main feature of the last two weeks has been the need for endurance in demanding, not-letting-up situations and corresponding energy drains, but overall not bad.

My new Demi-SLR occurs tomorrow morning and is probably already in force. It's pretty simple and, at its best, signifies the birthday-themed exotic wine tasting this weekend (delayed from last Sunday). At worst, it is probably a recurrence of frailty, vulnerability, and fog, but in a more pleasant sense,

SLR 10/27/20

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sun Oct 25, 2020 9:23 am

The new SLR sets up Tuesday morning, October 27, 2020 at 10:35 AM. I might be in the office in Century City, or might be here at home (not a huge difference either way so I'll do it for home). Home is 34N03'46", 118W18'47". The Century City post office, on the same block as my office, is 34N03'20", 118W25'01".

This has essentially the same elements as the outgoing Demi-SLR (and similar to the last SLR). Moon and Neptune are both at least minimally angular, but the Moon-Neptune long-term aspect is not within 3° so it's not as strong a factor. (The same planets are "players," but their aspects aren't in the mix this time.) Transiting Moon is (minimally) foreground but natal Moon is not. In fact, no natal planets are foreground so there are no foreground aspects at all (but the malefics are quite heavy in the non-foreground partile aspects, which makes this a good month to test them: by angularity, a benefic dominates but by non-foreground partile transits, malefics make quite horrible aspects suggesting "background conditions").

Re: SLR 10/27/20

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sun Nov 08, 2020 9:09 am

One of the two biggest events of this fortnight was yesterday's nationwide block party, so I'd have to say that Venus on Midheaven fits quite nicely. (The other main event isn't inconsistent with it.)

I'm not overly aware of the impact of the non-foreground malefic transits. During this time, I've also had progressed SSR Moon to Mars-Pluto. I'm happy to say that the only significant showing I can see is a rousing of even more of my warrior spirit at the climax of the presidential campaign. Beyond that (which is also consistent with Mars opposite my Sun), I don't really see any expression of those aspects at all.

Tuesday is the Demi-SLR, which I probably will be feeling by tomorrow evening. It brings Neptune (and probably Moon-Neptune) back to the lead (I haven't done the workup yet).

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sun Nov 08, 2020 9:10 am

My Demi-SLR occurs Tuesday, November 10, 2020, 7:40 PM PST. I will surely be home at the time. Notice that transiting Moon is not foreground - more than 10° from IC - but natal Moon is much closer and in close conjunction with Neptune. - For anyone who might want to watch with this in mind, transiting Sun is on Vertex, i.e., 1°33' from due west in azimuth but making no PVP aspects. -- Neptune doubles up from the SLR. Among non-foreground partile aspects, Venus' exact conjunction with natal Sun is consistent with the culminating Venus of the SLR.

SLR 11/23/20

Post by Jim Eshelman » Fri Nov 20, 2020 7:08 am

It feels like I just did one of these - time is zooming by, which I should note as a characteristic of the time. It feels like I just did the last chart workup no more than a week ago. Everything is speeding up - an indication of the world getting back up to its pre-pandemic speed in some senses.

This new SLR is a great example of the importance of looking at these charts mundanely and breaking them down carefully. Were I to examine this at a glance, I'd get the wrong impression - Saturn at MC would catch my attention first, and slowly pair with Mercury setting. But Saturn is actually a fair distance from MC and isn't the main point at all: The main point is two Venuses with the Mercury!

There are, however, some intense Venus aspects, with a Venus-Saturn-Uranus T-square as a primary feature. Saturn has a strong edge in aspects (including transits) though is less primary in terms of angularity. Interestingly, we find all three variants of Saturn-Uranus aspect.

This SLR will occur Monday, November 23, at 3:57 PM when I expect to be at home or nearby. As usual, I'll probably be feeling it a day early, at least by Sunday afternoon.

I want to break this down more usefully, especially to organize the aspects better. There are so many very close ones, but they resolve into a few patterns. Here is a condensed and reorganized version.

t Uranus on EP -1°07'
t Venus sq. MC -0°41'
t Mercury on Dsc -0°15'
r Venus on Dsc -0°01'

---------------------------------
r Saturn on Dsc +4°12'
r Jupiter on IC +5°49'
r Uranus on IC +6°13'

ASPECTS
1. Transiting Venus-Saturn-Uranus T-square
2. Natal Jupiter-Uranus squares natal Mercury-Saturn
3. t Ve-Sa-Ur as a whole aspects r Ju-Ur + Me-Sa as a whole
-- -- -- except most transits to r Sa are not close enough to warrant attention
4. Also, t Mercury conj. r Venus 0°14' (probably the most important aspect)

The partile aspects warrant particular attention (plus, the presence of three forms of Saturn-Uranus warrants attention).

t Saturn sq. r Mercury 0°05'
t Mercury conj. r Venus 0°14'
r Jupiter-Uranus conj. 0°17'
t Uranus op. r Mercury 0°22'
t Saturn-Uranus sq. 0°26'
r Saturn op. r Uranus 0°34'
t Uranus sq. r Uranus 0°37'
t Saturn op. r Jupiter 0°51'
r Mercury-Uranus sq. 0°59'
t Uranus sq. r Jupiter 1°01'

Demi-SLR 12/8/2020

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sun Dec 06, 2020 1:23 pm

It looks like things are getting harder for two weeks (during a time when progressions highlight Mars). My Demi-SLR occurs December 8, 8:04 AM, so I'll probably start registering it tomorrow morning.

r Saturn on EP -2°45
-----------------------------------------------
t Uranus on WP +0°23'
t Saturn sq. Asc +0°37
t Jupiter sq. Asc +2°05'

r Mars on IC +8°21'
t Pluto on IC +9°20'


-- r Jupiter-Uranus conj. 0°12' mundo
-- t Saturn sq. r Neptune 0°15' mundo
-- t Saturn op. r Jupiter 0°28'
-- t Pluto conj. r Mars 0°29'
-- t Saturn op. r Uranus 0°40' mundo
-- t Jupiter op. r Uranus 0°43'
-- r Jupiter-Neptune sq. 0°43' mundo
-- r Uranus-Neptune sq. 0°55' mundo
-- t Jupiter op. r Jupiter 0°58' mundo

-- t Jupiter sq. r Neptune 1°17'
-- t Jupiter-Saturn conj. 1°26' mundo
-- t Uranus op. r Saturn 2°11' mundo
-- r Mars-Neptune sq. 2°25'
-- t Pluto sq. r Neptune 2°54'
-- t Jupiter sq. r Mars 2°57' mundo

Other partile
(none)


As usual, there are so many aspects that one has to start taking them in clumps. Here are all the Class 1 angularities and aspects in relative strength.

r Jupiter-Uranus conj. 0°12'
t Saturn sq. r Neptune 0°15'
t Uranus on WP 0°23'
t Saturn op. r Jupiter 0°28'
t Pluto conj. r Mars 0°29'
t Saturn sq. Asc 0°37
t Saturn op. r Uranus 0°40'
t Jupiter op. r Uranus 0°43'
r Jupiter-Neptune sq. 0°43' mundo
r Uranus-Neptune sq. 0°55' mundo
t Jupiter op. r Jupiter 0°58' mundo
t Jupiter sq. Asc 2°05'
r Neptune on Asc 3°43'
r Jupiter on MC 4°26'
r Uranus on MC 4°38'

Re: Demi-SLR 12/8/2020

Aghh. First manifestation (with Moon barely past natal Moon) is the eye thing again (or, rather, lenses). I coughed and thought I'd lost my one lens (the one in my right eye; I've been going without vision in the left eye for several months). I spent 30-45 minutes looking for it as best I could, including in the eye, waiting for Marion to wake. She then couldn't see it at my desk or on the eye. Eventually, with the camera on my Surface at high magnification, I was able to uncover it in one corner of the eye.

Crisis averted. (Losing this would have meant no vision in either eye for two to six weeks, plus expenses.)

Also, in theory, today should be perhaps the most martial day of my life: Progressed Mars semi-square natal Mars is exact today, concurrent with PSSR Moon opposite natal Mars. Since re-engaging with the PSSR (and discovering that its angles move at a mean and not apparent solar rate), I've not yet been persuaded that its planets progress, i.e., SQ lunar progressions have been dramatically more obvious than PSSR Moon progressions and (during the part of the year that they are separate enough) transits to SQ Moon have seemed effective while those to PSSR Moon have not. So perhaps the PSSR Moon progression to Mars doesn't really exist.

SLR 12/20/20

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sun Dec 20, 2020 9:22 am

The last SLR of the year is primarily luminary-driven. I am interested to see if Sun's concentration on IC will take a privacy (isolation) theme - giving character to the particular angle - since that is what conditions seem to be forging most. The angles are almost exactly my natal angles. Because of a roughly 11° difference in celestial latitude, natal Moon is in quite a different right ascension than transiting Moon, so it is transiting Moon that is closely angular while natal Moon is no more than a backup player. (Neither Moon is close enough to Neptune this time to make Class 1.)

t Mercury on IC -4°00'
t Sun on IC -3°23'
------------------------
t Moon on EP +1°06' (r Moon on Dsc +3°27')
t Neptune on Dsc +8°36'

-- t Sun-Mercury conj. 0°37' mundo

Other partile
t Jupiter-Saturn conj. 0°03'
t Pluto conj. r Mars 0°06'
t Mars-Pluto sq. 0°48'
t Mars sq. r Mars 0°54'


In addition to whatever "backdrop activity" the non-foreground partile aspects bring, the Class 2 angularities and Class 1 aspects of the chart, in order of strength, are:

t Sun-Mercury conj. 0°37'
t Moon on EP +1°06'
t Sun on IC -3°23'
t Mercury on IC -4°00'
