Approaching what has to be one of the true Dragon Moons of 2012, the Libra Full Moon on April 6th
we began to feel the heat rise all around us. Two of the primary influences of this Full Moon besides the Grand Mutable Cross are Mars and Venus. And today April 3rd.
One of the unusual aspects of this lunation is the 'Hard Rectangle', comprised of the Moon-Neptune-Sun-Mars. In the chart set for April 6th. @ 7:19 PM UT has multiple TSQ's along with even a Thors Hammer aka an Arrowhead, or God's Fist. In this Hammer configuration, Mars (Virgo) leads again along with N Node (Sagittarius) and Vesta (Aries) and consists of of two planets in square aspect (90 degrees) (Mars-N Node) and both in an octile or sesqui-quadrate aspect (135 degrees) to a third planet or asteroid in this case: Vesta @ 19 Aries near the Sun @ 17 . The energy of this aspect pattern is a little like a T-square, since it has stressful, dynamic quality.
In fact this hard rectangle includes the opposition from Mars to Neptune adding a decidedly spiritual but a series of weird overtones. For example out of Wisconsin where the Clintonville booms were heard, enter Baraboo and mysterious light flashes too. So this was on April 4, 2012, Back to the description of the hard rectangle, which consists of two oppositions, the ends of which are joined by two semi-squares (45 degrees) and two sesqui-quadrates (135 degrees). Both of these "minor" aspects are active and challenging leading to swift change. The sesqui-quadrates are about sometimes painful adjustments. Like the grand cross, this rectangle is a closed aspect pattern, which means that it is self-contained and fiercely self-sufficient generating lots of actual physical energies with the Sun/Moon on the axis of conflict/resolution. Fortunatly there is less resistance than with the grand cross because the hard rectangle belongs to the eight series of numbers. I see this Hard Rectangle dealing with the integration of spirituality into daily life. Also preparing us for the next series of momentous shifts as we move deeper into April.
Then toward the historic Venus Transit on June 5, 2012 @ 6:10 PM PDT or June 6, 2012 @ 1:10 AM UT.
Tropically the Sun-Venus will be @ 15 degrees 44 minutes of Gemini
Sabian Symbol:A woman agitator makes an impassioned plea to the crowd. That just about sums up these times of revolutionary upheaval with the Uranus-Pluto Waxing Square in sessio.
Suffice to say Venus Transits, historically have presaged shifts in human consciousness.
