2016-07 W29: Forecasts for Week 29 of 2016

Weekly Sunout Astrology Calendar (Aspectarian)
Weekly Sunout Astrology Calendar (Aspectarian)


We are deep into Cancer and an ongoing Grand Water Trine involving Cancerian planets (Sun, Mercury, Venus), Mars in late Scorpio, and Neptune / Chiron in Pisces.  It is a GREAT time to make money, but it can also be a time that brings sorrow (water) or other powerful emotions (water).  It is also a DANGEROUS week and a week of REVOLUTIONARY THOUGHT.  The Full Moon happens next week, and we move into the waning “cleanup” period of the lunar cycle after that.  This means you need to “get certain things done” this week.

This is a very Martian week, so you can accomplish much if you avoid temper tantrums and avoid dangerous people, places, and things.

This forecast was developed in the early morning hours of Friday, July 8th.


A Mars / Neptune high order aspect brings an odd sense that maybe things are not what they seem.  That rather incredible salesperson you encounter, who may be wearing clothes other than salesperson such as “poets, priests and politicians” who “have words to thank for their positions,” may sound too good to be true.  You know the warning: “If it sounds too good to be true….”

Sun sextile Jupiter CAN make this a good day for some people, and Mercury trine Mars CAN make it a good day to take action.  Just stick with existing plans you know well and avoid buying into the snake oil salespersons.  You already have your own good ideas and plans and need to funnel your energy into THOSE.  (Do NOT let yourself get sidetracked by someone.)


Vesta and Pallas form a high order aspect that MIGHT give us an ingenious idea about our traditions but Mars forms a quincunx to Vesta leading to certain false hopes about actually taking action on those ideas.  I suspect that police and security forces will be having meetings today about the shootings in Baton Rouge, Minnesota, and Dallas last week.  The ideas will sound very good, and they may be very good, but a flaw in their execution may make things worse rather than better.

Mercury square Uranus brings brilliant ideas, especially to writers and engineers, and especially to electrical engineers and computer scientists.  Breakthroughs in these domains (and related) happen today.  Mercury also trines Chiron, so some of the most compelling writing ever written might happen today.  But Venus is void until late, so edits or revisions may be necessary later (maybe tomorrow or, better yet, Wednesday).


Today is EXTREMELY complex and a bit difficult to interpret.  TWO BiSeptiles tell us that we may be facing yet another “Karma Day” similar to those of the shootings of last week and the Pulse Club shootings in Orlando.  Neptune BiSeptile Vesta reveals the fatal flaw (poor choice of words, admittedly) in yesterday’s ideas and plans.  They omit some important human consideration(s).

Pluto BiSeptile Ceres causes individuals to look very hard at their diet and exercise and retirement plans; financial markets (stocks, bonds, options, futures) may face a “correction” relative to recent events.

Juno, the angry wife / daughter / mother / sister, is semi-square the North Node (Rahu in Vedic, Dragon’s Head) which also makes her necessarily sesquiquadrate Ketu (South Node, the Dragon’s Tail).  Don’t be surprised to see Hillary and her team on a rampage today, and many other females will be as well.  Indeed, they may be the very factor that the security forces have not considered.  Instead of “Mothers Against Drunk Drivers” it might be “Mothers Against Police Shooters.”  If you are laughing, then don’t laugh too loud.  It just could be.

A lunar void from about 10 AM CDT until about 4 PM CDT brings a good period for preparation and “wait and see” until time to take action (maybe tomorrow for some).


Today is at least as complex as yesterday, and certain critical issues continue to be in the forefront.  Also coming to the forefront is a shakeup in the “Adult Entertainment” industry.  This could be a large bankruptcy, merger, or both.  Incredible insights will come to those who work in that business, and a revolution there is at hand.  Mark this day well, it represents a big shift.

If you do not work in adult entertainment, this could be another day of “great sex” for certain people.  And if that is not much of your life at this point, then you will be exploring your inner “dark side” and “inner demons” and can have some great ideas.  As we always say, “write them down” or record them in some appropriate fashion.  Certain writers and photographers will have a breakthrough on this date.

If you work in the mental health field, you may see an AMAZING breakthrough with a patient.

Some of you will have the opportunity to learn a new skill.  Seize it; do NOT let this one pass you by.

Note that danger is present today, also, from the Mars / Uranus quincunx that perfects tomorrow.  Mercury in Cancer is void of course most of the day (until 7:47 PM CDT) and miscommunication fuel problems and danger.  Mercury enters Leo and the “too early to tell” period for communication and transportation for a few days (avoid purchase of cell phones, computers, or vehicles such as automobiles or motorcycles).


We would like to say that “things” calm down relative to the last two days, but that would not be the truth.  However, things do “simplify” today.  We cannot even say that the “message becomes clear” because Mars Quincunx Uranus stirs things up and can be VERY DANGEROUS.  It is MARS in late SCORPIO in conflict with URANUS in ARIES.  You cannot get more “Martian” (violent, war-like) than that EXCEPT when the same kind of thing happened with a Mars  /Pluto Septile with the Pulse shooter.  No clear winners here, and we bet both attackers and security forces are BOTH injured.

Vesta BiNoviles the North Node (Dragon’s Head aka “Rahu”) and this means we can learn important lessons if we are paying attention.  A shift in consciousness is needed, and I am specifically referring to an “aha” moment rather than meditation or “tapping” or something like that.  A breakthrough insight is needed, and one can be had if you are paying attention.  If you are sleepy, then go outside in the bright sunlight and let it WAKE YOU.  You need your awareness today.

Moon in Scorpio amplifies the existing Grand Water Trine AND also amplifies the potential for danger.  People are not very flexible today.


Neptune forms a quadrinovile to Hygeia, and certain healthcare professionals can have important insights and learn new skills.  A few will have breakthroughs that lead to important patents.  Yesterday’s message is still true: “you need your awareness today.”

Mars is Septile Pluto, an aspect similar to the Pulse Shooter, and danger continues.   Avoid risky people, places and things.  Maybe staying home tonight is a good idea, or at least limiting your social events to small parties with well known and stable friends.

Mars / Jupiter may also lead us to over-react or consume too much food or mood altering substances.  And, if none of those apply, you might overspend today on some shiny toy that you really do not need.  A wise move is to channel your efforts into harnessing your existing resources in the best fashion.  If it is about exercise, avoid the new gizmo and wear out the existing Yoga mat or dumbbells.

A Grand Fire Trine is present, so fire signs are strongest (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) followed by air signs (Libra, Aquarius, Gemini).  This is another day for bright ideas and skills development, so capture them (write them down, record them somehow).


Ceres enters Taurus, and it is a bit like New Year’s Eve (or Day) for some people.  New diet and exercise programs become the rage.  People in the finance world have weekend (secret) meetings about the earlier shakeup / shakeout we mentioned.  Wall Street failures tend to favor Trump (the Outsider) over Clinton (Wall Street funding), and some people might be worried about that.

Neptune forms a quadrinovile to Juno, and the angry wives / mothers / daughters / sisters of the world have the opportunity to have a powerful, very nearly psychic, insight.  If you are on the “wrong side” of this, then you are in trouble.  They can pierce into the heart of your secrets.  If it involves “Mothers Against Police Shooters,” then THEY WIN.

Pluto forms a quadrinovile to Vesta.  Police and security forces have another idea (or set of ideas), and THIS one really is “new and improved” and better than the one(s) earlier this week.  This set of ideas really CAN “work.”  (You should have listened to those guys in the first place.  It probably means getting the Juno personalities involved and on the SAME SIDE as security and police forces.)

Uranus is quincunx Astraea, so thoughts of lawyers and lawsuits will probably lead into failure.  Be careful about going down this blind alley.

Sun squares Uranus (an annual aspect) today, so prepare to be surprised.  Possibly violence continues, including explosions, and revolutions and revolutionary ideas dominate the day.

Sun in Cancer later forms a Grand Water Trine (Mars in Scorpio; Chiron in Pisces) that trumps anything from yesterday.  Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) tend to win followed by earth signs (Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo).  Much of this bleeds over into Sunday (tomorrow).

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
