2019-2020 stations for experimental planets

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sun Jul 28, 2019 6:08 pm

Planets beyond Pluto discovered in recent years move so slowly that there is great difficulty in discerning their effects by transits (which can last for many years at a time). However, all planets are much more powerful when at their station, so a useful technique to discern whether they have effect is to watch their transits to natal positions at the time of a station.

Here are stations for experimental bodies (all of them actual astronomical bodies) for 2019 and 2020. (Besides the two trans-Plutonian planets, I've added the larger asteroids for curiosity.) Here are their stations:

Eris Jan 10 2019 27Pi59'
Sedna Feb 8 2019 01Ta18'
Pallas Feb 18 2019 04Li29'
Ceres Apr 8 2019 19Sc16'
Pallas May 30 2019 15Vi22'
Chiron Jul 8 2019 10Pi56'
Ceres Jul 17 2019 05Sc30'
Eris Jul 20 2019 29Pi19'
Sedna Aug 29 2019 03Ta00'

Vesta Sep 23 2019 02Ta39'
Chiron Dec 12 2019 06Pi25'
Vesta Dec 29 2019 17Ar05'
Eris Jan 10 2020 28Pi12'
Juno Feb 8 2020 26Vi38'
Sedna Feb 8 2020 01Ta54'
Pallas May 17 2020 05Cp56'
Juno May 26 2020 10Vi47'
Ceres Jul 6 2020 17Aq48'
Chiron Jul 11 2020 14Pi25'
Eris Jul 20 2020 29Pi32'
Sedna Aug 29 2020 03Ta37'

Pallas Sep 5 2020 17Sg11'
Ceres Oct 18 2020 03Aq35'
Chiron Dec 15 2020 09Pi55'

I'm very sensitive to stationing planets and I've been feeling the Sedna station approaching, it's about a week away and luckily there are no other stationing planets coming up at the moment as we got done with Uranus and Jupiter recently. So I know that I'm not confusing it with another station happening closely. Sedna is very slow-moving so the station can be felt strongly probably from about 10 days prior. That's how my girlfriend and I have been feeling it.

I feel like some deep unconscious fears are surfacing during this heightened Sedna energies. Fear of death and violence, a kind of foreboding dissonant feeling. Fear of losing control. :shock: :?

The way it feels is that Sedna was very appropriately named! It seems like a deeper darker unconscious realm than even Pluto.

Anyway, that's my two cents worth. Thanks for the list.

There is a Sedna station tomorrow at 3 00' Taurus. If there is astrological value to Sedna, this should act (a few days either side, centered on tomorrow) like a highly intensified transit (within one degree of conjunct, opposite, or squared) that may give some clue to its meaning.

In my case, this is (barely) in orb of square my Pluto at 2 06 Leo. I'll be watching for a few days to see if I get an effect that makes since for any significant transit to my Pluto.

Hmm, even more potentially interesting: The station is 01' (a single minute) from square my Asc here in Menlo Park, where I am this week. One would think there would be an effect if the planet has any astrological relevance.

I can't tell that anything happened. (It was conjunct my Pluto and conjunct Marion's Mars within a degree.)

There's a Vesta station tomorrow at 2 Ta 39. Opposite my Venus, square my Pluto. Anyone else have it hitting?

That's opposite my Mars (3*Sco3'50")

Thematically, it's almost hilariously on-point. A couple lady friends had been asking for and planning a group activity centered around me this Thursday, but I called it off yesterday as I'm continuing a (hopefully brief) period of celibacy, saving my sexual energy for a person I haven't even met yet.

Chiron Dec 12 2019 06Pi25'
Tomorrow is a Chiron station. One way to assess whether these experimental bodies have significance is to observe their exact transits at the time of their stations.

Of regulars here on Solunars, this station occurs within 1° of conjunction, opposition, or square a natal body as follows (though if you have something at 21°25' Rim you should pay attention also):

Arena Pluto 5°44' Virgo
FlorencedeZ Jupiter 5°32' Sagittarius
James Condor Moon 5°36' Pisces, Mercury 6°00' Sagittarius
Lance's wife Mercury 5°52' Virgo
The Scales Both Ways Mars 7°12' Sagittarius
Veronica Asc 5°20' Gemini
David Uranus 7°13' Virgo

How exciting!
Noticed it was coming square to my Asc.
Is Chiron concidered square Jupiter now or is that a bit off?
The only thing I recall about qualities of Chiron is "friend to Jim"
Any other keywords?

You mean transiting Chiron square transiting Jupiter? Yes, they're in partile square.

I'm trying to collect observations without presuming the meaning. Any dramatic events or life-shifts within a day or two either side of tomorrow would be interesting.

10:25 PM - my speculation/rectification attempt; I had it posted on forum, long time ago - maybe you deleted the wrong chart the other time you asked me about it?
The rounded minute used to bother me, so I had phases of attempts to rectify/refine it.

Got it. I'll update all my different copies of your chart :)

Anyway, happy Chiron station on IC, whatever that means!

Me too. It was a weird day. Lots of sexual attraction and communication directed at me, but oddly unfulfilled.

Going forward it looks like I'll have:

Eris opposite Pluto Jan 10
Juno conjunct Pluto Feb 8
Juno conjunct MC May 26
Sedna opposite Mars Aug 29
Pallas square Moon Sep 5
Ceres square Mars Oct 18

Eris Jan 10 2020 28Pi12'
Tomorrow is an Eris station. This is a real planet, out beyond Pluto. A complication for discerning distinctive effects is that Eris is currently square the Saturn-Pluto conjunction.

On theory, if you have a planet in partile dynamic aspect to 28°12' Pisces, and if Eris has astrological significance, you should feel this quite powerfully in the few days centered on tomorrow. For example, Eris' station is square my natal Mars 0°43'.

Though still speculative and exploratory, here is an old thread of preliminary observations on Eris:

On this day, Aug 29th 2010, I made a choice which resulted with ending the employment with the company I've been with for the previous 3.5 years, on the next day; I can't publicly share more (for sake of others' privacy), other than say that there was the specific downfall that ensued (psychologically, and regarding life-circumstances), and from which I'm finding my way up again, after about five months of gradually sinking lower and lower, till the time when it felt this state (and direction of motion) reached its saturation point.

What's interesting is, I remember very well the moment of making this choice, and how it was very distinctly Choosing, with awareness there's a-kind-of-destruction-to-ensue as result for myself (not knowing any specific details, but feeling-knowing clearly the general nature of it), and awareness that here-and-now, at that particular moment, I'm making a leap into the Unknown that 'forks the road' and defines future movement.

I have no natal planets at 3* Hub, but there's Novien Moon at 3*44' Sco !

I can't say that I noticed anything from the last station. Possibly it was too obscure or masked with Saturn and Pluto exactly connected to it (or perhaps there is no effect worth noting).

Tomorrow, February 8, we have two stations:

The asteroid JUNO is stationary at 26°38' Virgo. (No contact to my natal chart but square my SSR MC.)

The distant planet SEDNA is stationary at 1°54' Taurus (0°01' from opposite my Venus and 0°12' from square my Pluto).

The goal (as a reminder) is to see if there is an effect sufficiently strong to be felt - since transiting planets at their stations usually produce unusually strong effects - and, if so, to isolate the nature of that effect. As a working hypothesis, Juno has long been considered to be connected with marriage and especially the business side of connections (one might say it is a [probably] weaker expression of Libra). Sedna, named after an Alaskan goddess, has a powerful and gory mythology that my (or may not) give clues to its astrological meaning (if any).
