What's Coming in October, November, and December 2019
And also the Vernal Equinox down under!! The Autumnal Equinox occurs at 12:51 am PDT, 8:51 am BST September 23. This marks the end of Summer and the beginning of Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. It is said that a chart done for this point in time offers a snapshot of the cosmic and literal weather for the next 3 months.
Today is the last day of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere, the last day of Winter in the Southern. If you’re wondering how I reconcile the seemingly opposing energies between the hemispheres, when you’re done here please take a look at The Mirroring of the Northern and Southern Hemisphere Year Cycles in Astrology. It may help readers “down under” see how the important points of seasonal change, though opposite in physical manifestation, actually have similar challenges at each point of shift. And yes, I'm already thinking of doing a small book on the subject, stripping the signs of their usual attributes and taking a more universal approach to the subject of the changes of the seasons.
There is an old tradition that offers us two times when "the year begins," one at the Vernal Equinox, the other at the Autumnal. Perhaps that tradition came from explorers who saw the seasons flip between the Northern and Southern, going from the beginning of warm to the beginning of cold as they moved up and down the latitudes.
This is an excellent time for looking at what has ended and what is emerging. We up North have done our Summer labor, and are reaping the harvest of what we've done and not done. In the Southern latitudes, they're beginning to plant the seeds that will grow over the next 180 days.
So if you're "down under," it's the beginning of Spring and beautiful weather. Just remember to have a little compassion for us up here when December 21-22, the Winter Solstice, rolls around and we're freezing while you're enjoying the beach!
Whether North or South, keep following through on the new roles, new initiatives, new feelings, new flow, and new ways of relating to others on more refined levels you’ve already begun to experience since Spring, since the season to come is the time to transfigure our future into more perfect forms. Regardless of where we live, what follows explores elements we all can expect to experience over the next 13 weeks.
The nights will now begin to be longer than the days for 6 months to come in the Northern Hemisphere, with lengthening days in the Southern. The Sun is now in Libra, promising enhanced and expanded relationships and social interactions. We can find new ideals, new ways of measuring and evaluating the balance in things, and new perspectives that offer us a well-rounded understanding.
The charts for the Solstices and Equinoxes provide guideposts for what we can expect the following 90 days in the way of weather, both actual and symbolic. The Autumn Equinox chart shows 2 planets in the first decan of their signs, 6 in the second decan of their signs, and 2 in the third decan.
This indicates a three month period of activity involving a tremendous focus on the emotional, social, and cultural levels of existence, with less emphasis, even if balanced, on the actional, physical, and material planes, as well as the individual, mental, and spiritual planes. Given the middle decan planets include Moon, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune, it’s easy to see that many areas of our lives are going to have an emotional-social emphasis the next 90 days.
Aspects and Configurations Shaping the Season to Come
As you know, in these active aspect sections I include barely separating partile aspects, since they are still in active operation. The outstanding quality of this Equinox chart are the strong aspects across several harmonic series. There are an outstanding number of aspects in the 5th, 10th, 15th, and 20th harmonic series, with Moon quintile Sun and Uranus, Venus Vigintile Mars, Sun quintile Jupiter, biquintile Uranus, and tredecile Pluto, Mars tredecile Saturn, and Jupiter quindecile Saturn. This involves 8 planets ruling 10 signs, so obviously there will be multiple specializing gifts and circumstances over the next 90 days for all of us!
As I give you every Lunation, the quintile represents a gift or specialized talent, a biquintile represents interactive gifts and specialized talents, and the tredecile represents interactive gifts and circumstances which are serendipitous, bringing exactly what we need or landing us in circumstances perfect for our unique gifts. The Vigintile and Quindecile are partially developed gifts. So serendipity is in the air with Sun tredecile Pluto and Mars tredecile Saturn!
Other major series include Venus creating a “Kite” by making triseptiles to both Uranus and Neptune, temporarily neutralizing the semisquare and creating major “forks in the road of destiny” for the world through what is being awakened, the social-spiritual rebirth we’re going through, and our ability to teach and be taught through kindness. These collective cooperative forks in the road of our lives will primarily affect planets and points we have near 10-14 Libra, 1-5 Sagittarius, 23-27 Capricorn, 14-18 Pisces, 5-9 Taurus, 26-30 Gemini, and 18-22 Leo.
Friction is provided by Moon square Mercury, quincunx Jupiter, and opposition Saturn and Pluto; Mercury is square Saturn, quincunx Neptune, and square Pluto; Venus is square Saturn; Mars is sesquisquare Uranus; Jupiter is sesquisquare Uranus and square Neptune; and Uranus, though semisquare Neptune, for this season will operate as a septile blended with a semisquare. You can see there are a lot of frictional aspects, with the most prominent making a Cardinal T-square throwing a void into mid-Aries!
The quincunxes will bring adjustments and sacrifices wherever they are in our charts, and will work out not merely as events in those houses, but also will affect the rulers of those houses as well. Because Saturn is now direct, it is making a conjunction with Pluto, so hold on, since we’re now officially counting down to the cluster of triple conjunctions to come in January and March.
As the Moon is quintile both the Sun and Uranus, and the Sun is biquintile Uranus, we have three points of a Great Quintile, the 5 pointed Star pattern showing us a “quintessential” perfection and specialization wherever it falls. Main areas of influence include 3-8 Taurus, 15-20 Cancer, 27 Virgo-2 Libra, 9-14 Sagittarius, and 21-26 Aquarius.
This chart features two seriously beneficial linkages in 10th harmonic series aspects involving Sun, Mars, Saturn, and Pluto! As I said, serendipity is in the air thanks to Sun tredecile Pluto and Mars tredecile Saturn. One would be great; two is fantastic!
The Sun tredecile Pluto hot zones are around 1-3 Aries/Libra, 5-9 Taurus/Scorpio, 11-15 Gemini/Sag, 17-21 Cancer/Capricorn, 23-27 Leo/Aquarius, and 29-30 Virgo/Pisces. The Mars tredecile Saturn hot zones are around 1-3 Taurus/Scorpio, 5-9 Gemini/Sag, 11-15 Cancer/Capricorn, 17-21 Leo/Aquarius, 23-27 Virgo/Pisces, and 29-30 Libra/Aries. As you can see, after the Mars/Saturn unique interactivity is triggered, it’s immediately followed by the Sun/Pluto serendipity!
Last but not least, the Moon opposed Saturn and Pluto is cut into a sextile and trine by Neptune, generating a favorable and productive void in mid-Virgo. That opposition, sextile, and trine building energy is released by the Libra T-square to the Cancer-Capricorn opposition, throwing the dynamic void into mid-Aries. You can bet that if you have a planet in the middle degrees of any sign, it’s going to go through a lot of growth and releases.
Thanks to Moon in Cancer we will all hit a new level of personality integration through actions which help us consolidate our lives and get all of the parts of us on the same page, working together instead of pulling us in various directions. As it’s conjunct the North Node, we enter 90 days of extraordinary growth in “materializing the spiritual” and expressing our sense of what’s important within the context of whatever group training we’ve been doing since April.
Because the Moon is one of the arms of the Cardinal T-square and in its own sign, it’s very powerful. Feelings will run high in the next season, and the main requirements are a) identify with larger humanitarian or reform efforts, b) decrease your sentimentality and time wasting habits so you can get on with your more important work in the world, and c) let go of old rules and fears so you can take care of yourself and others in appropriate ways. Beware of superficialities and superficial people while being diplomatic and kind, and cultivate your spiritual rapport with others. Don’t be narrow in your interpretations, and be balanced in disciplining your mind and speech so that you can be more optimistic in what you think and how you relate.
Let go of ideas, people, and things which have outlived their usefulness in your life, or are now more trouble than they’re worth. Confront your inner power which is locked up, and allow your “will to wholeness” to break up old complexes and educate you in how to act, why you are acting, and when to let it all out!
Jones Pattern, Dispositors, and the Lunar Phase
With the Moon in Cancer, it shifts the overall pattern from a Locomotive to a Splay Jones pattern. Mars in Virgo still leads the Locomotive and Uranus in Taurus still closes the occupied span, but for now, the Moon is filling in the widest gap between planets, creating a pattern where all the planets are “splayed out” across 7 signs in an irregular distribution. As we had a combination of a Splay and Locomotive pattern at the recent June Solstice, you can find out more about both patterns by going to Summer Solstice 2019 – What’s Coming in July, August, and September. (It may also be interesting to take a look at the past season in light of what was written then.)
At this time, Saturn in Capricorn is one of FIVE final dispositors for all the other planets, with the other four being the Moon in Cancer, Venus in Libra, Jupiter in Sagittarius, and as usual, Neptune in its own sign. That indicates “competing rulers” over the next 90 days, and as each of these has both favorable and frictional aspects, there will be a lot of activity which will help us get clear about what to let go of, and where to double down.
The Third Quarter Lunar phase indicates this season will be future oriented, and focused on building systems, groups, and institutions which can bring visions of the future to others. Beware of using too much force when a lighter touch is needed, and see the spiritual principles behind everyday actions. This phase reorients us at the end of a cycle, and is highly inventive in finding ways to embody personal ideals and truths into organized systems. This season will bring us all a different historical perspective, taking universal principles into account.
With the element distribution, there should be an emphasis on practicality with almost as much interrelatedness and interactivity, since we have 4 planets in Earth, 3 in Air, 2 in Water, and 1 in Fire. That indicates inspiration will have to come from within, since it seems the coming season is one of practical ideas grounded in high emotions and important interactions.
So take a look at the vision of a transformed life and world being offered to you as you catch glimpses of a greater sense of community and connectedness. Open to a new archetypal role or vision, let yourself be transformed, and breathe easy as you learn and teach through kindness and the ability to get beyond the knowledge by understanding how to transmit and receive ideas.
Get ready to accept new methods, new vision, new archetypes, and new roles to play. You’re getting a different perspective on the past and what remains which you should take into the future. Make decisions, be decisive and act as you need to. Let your decisions lead you to deep experiences, which in turn will bring you new vision and new understanding. Learn and teach through anecdotes, and keep your understanding new, fresh, and up to date. Do not rely on old information, and beware of superficial people making superficial statements.
As you do what you need to do, remember to experience yourself as you move through the changes, since by going deeper you will find new perspectives and a new life order. Be open to new ways of seeing the value of what protects you as you “play on the beach” and keep building the bridges you’ll be traversing back and forth as you awaken to a new quality of life.
The next 90 days are radical growth in personal feeling experiences, with all polarization and conflict serving personality integration. What is the spiritual mandala of your existence? What is the “floor plan” of your consciousness? See what you need to invite into your house of personality, and what sustains you. See what and who is leaving your life, and escort them out the door. Know when to go into solitude to “make report” to your Master or Higher Self, and let yourself be transported into a newer archetypal role to play in your world. Let yourself heal into your Higher Self, be educated in dynamic releases and transformations, and soar to the heights. Buena suerte, and Godspeed!!
Aum and blessings as we stand on the threshold of a new season of life!
