We have an interesting construction this week: Venus-Mercury-Jupiter with Mars-Sol connecting through Mercury. These planets are making a lambda, which we all know is the symbol for wavelength and the cosmological constant, as well as the sign of being a nerd.
So, what are we to make of this? Well the first issue is the decide what the major arm is in the construction. Obviously, you’d want to give preference to the longest arm, or the one with the most points of interconnection. In this case they’re the same length. Well, let’s read it as many ways as makes sense, and see what we get.
Interpretation 1: Love/sex/fertility/femininity/peace – Change/Luck/News – Happiness/Benevolence/Order/Rule modified by War/Conflict/Masculinity – Growth/Expansion/Power with the causality linking through the “change” node.
1a. A new war leads to increased prosperity for arms dealers. Plausible.
1b. A woman finds a particularly good bit of Big Dick porn. Less likely. Astrology usually concerns itself with world events, though perhaps this could have heralded the death of Catherine the Great.
1c. Military success puts down a rebellion. Yeah, that’s more in the star’s wheelhouse.
1d. A great battle brings peace. Really just a modification of 1c, de-emphasizing Jupiter. This also had the advantage of covering more bases allowing a more direct claim of success later on.
1e. A leader gets his dick shot off. Plausible. Though a more literal interpretation would allow for the emasculation via any sort of weapon. Though, what with popular trends probably a better reading would be “famous male celebrity comes out as trans.”
Interpretation 2: War/Conflict/Masculinity – Growth/Expansion/Power – Change/Luck/News, with the source of Mercury being both Love/sex/fertility/femininity/peace and Happiness/Benevolence/Order/Rule
2a. A leader starts a fight over a woman? That never happens. Too cliched.
2b. A queen gives birth to a son. Much better, with the main issue with this interpretation being that I have no idea if there are any royals pregnant. Beyonce isn’t due to give birth, is she?
So now that you’ve got a few basic ideas as to what the sky is trying to tell you, take a look at where the planets are in the sky as well as their arrangement. Very unusually, only the sun is in Aquarius. This indicates that the rest of the reading is going to be atypical. Mercury is in Pisces, which doubles down on the change/instability aspects of the planet, reducing interpretations of “news.” Luck is still on the table. Moving along, Venus is in Aries. “Goat” seems to be less “peace” and more “sex,” so focus on those readings. The moon is in Leo, which is a universal symbol for “play,” but the moon isn’t involved here. Just thought you’d like to know. Mars is in Sagittarius, so the warlike aspect of Mars is less inclined to mass slaughter and more about tactics. This has the additional effect of emphasizing the Mars-as-masculine symbology. Reading 2b is getting less and less likely. As has been for a while , Jupiter (and Saturn, but that’s not important here) is in Capricorn. Capricorn is an interesting sign, most notably known for those born under it being whiny about things not going their way, but different cultures have represented that in different ways. However, crocodile representation is less favored over the Sea Goat, since we already have a goaty influence flowing into the construction through Venus. So that means we should re-interpret Jupiter’s happiness and rulership as hedonism and salty old guy. With that last insight, we cna see how 1b and 1d really don’t make sense anymore.
