Trapezoids! Are these new to you? They are two squares joined by a trine on one end and a sextile on the other. That means across the formation, the corner points are joined by inconjuncts/quincunxes! These configurations have 4 stress to 2 harmony, more and less challenging depending on which planets are involved, other transiting factors, how it connects, or doesn’t, with your chart! Planets in equidistant patterns are considered more potent.
Starting today, Sep 26, with Mars having come into a 5 degree square with Jupiter, and Mercury having entered Libra yesterday, we are in an active Trapezoid pattern. Tomorrow, the 27th, the Moon enters the pattern strongly, perhaps being a trigger point as she conjuncts Mercury Sun, opposes Uranus, then making the Super New Moon at 4:09 AM Pacific! That’s a lot of squares with Pluto, danger!
Sep 28, 29 we have a close degreed, intense 2-day Trapezoid, a double trapezoid on the 29th! Mars in Leo is in a lock-step sextile with Sun/Mercury, all three at 5, then 6 degrees, tied most closely with Pluto in Capricorn. This could be wonderfully personally productive, sales made, fun parties, great sex! The other part of the story is Sun/Mercury in Libra have just finished squaring Pluto. While they are trying to talk their way through things, Pluto in Capricorn is showing them just exactly how things really are. It could get pretty uncomfortable, or be a grateful dose of reality. Mars in Leo squares Jupiter in well rooted Taurus. Little change for lots of effort? Temper or frisson?! It has a sense of now or never, may be overconfident, yet what if you never tried at all? Better to be a fool and learn than be a failure at nothing. Push that boulder off its spot! Be sure it’s headed in the right direction, because once you get momentum…. Sometimes a sense of outrage is the best thing that ever happened. Finally. But no red lights or traffic insults. Please.
Look carefully, you will see on the 29th, the Moon in Scorpio is potently making a 2nd Trapezoid in the early hours of the day, until 8 AM Pacific time, probably the most potent 12:30 AM, just after midnight! She squares Mars, sextiles Pluto, with Pluto in the ever-present square with Uranus. Mars completes the pattern trining Uranus. Moon inconjunct Uranus is certainly unstable, square Mars can have a bit of a temper. In spite of that, Pluto may share some secrets, and the Mars trine Uranus bring some fun surprises, solutions, results! Keep your eyes wide open, be mindful not to miss any cues!
These aspects will probably have mixed effects, but still are challenging for relationships, projects, business, health. Get prepared, anticipate what materials it would be good to have on hand. Be ready to employ kindness and patience, accept that there are challenges, do your best.
