Steve's new SSR (2019)

Post by Jim Eshelman » Fri Sep 20, 2019 8:11 am

Steve, I thought you might want a full breakdown of angularities. I think you probably aren't using the Excel spreadsheet that lets you calculate natal planets' angularity in the SSR, and they matter this year. (The only foreground planets are natal planets.)

t Moon-Jupiter op 0°47' in mundo
t Moon-Neptune sq. 1°06'

r Saturn on IC -5°30'
r Moon on Dsc -3°13'
r Pluto on IC -3°06'
-------------------------
r Jupiter on Dsc +6°45'

-- r Moon-Pluto sq. 0°07' in mundo
-- r Saturn-Pluto conj. 2°24' in mundo
-- r Moon-Saturn sq. 2°37' in mundo

Other Partile
t Jupiter-Neptune sq. 0°05'
t Pluto sq. r Venus 0°12' in mundo
t Mercury conj. r Neptune 0°24'
t Mars-Saturn sq. 0°52' in mundo

Thank you very much Jim. I always learn from your astrological brilliancy. I will try and give reports throughout the year when I see any of this main SSR symbolism manifest in my life. I know this for sure, FWIW, I am already seeing/feeling a very strong sense of the Moon-Jupiter-Neptune and will test it on some future speculation, but as always, when I see Neptune involved with any issues in my life I don't trust what I think it may mean. I will definitely come back to this thread for several posts so we may all learn.

Jim writes in his out of print book (a great book)--'Interpreting Solar Returns':
This, then, isolates the Moon as the most crucial agent in a Solar Return, after the angles. SSR Lunar aspects to natal and solar planets can never be treated lightly, even when rather wide in orb. So remarkable is this single factor that, if lunar aspects are nearly exact while foreground planets are not exceptionally close to the angles, the solar Moon can be considered the primary theme-setter of the SSR for the year ahead, bar none.
Below is a link to my SSR. Jim's book teaches us to first read the SSR as a stand alone chart isolating any main 'theme-setters.' Then Jim wants to bi-wheel our SSR's with the Natal chart looking for any tight angular natal planets to the SSR angles-- for how we react to SSR influences.

First it become obvious to the eyes looking at the below link for my 2019 SSR, the main theme-setter in my SSR is Moon-Jupiter-Neptune t-square. I looked at my 2019 SSR a year before it became activated and knew to pay close attention to any gambling/ speculation opportunities which happened to appear in my mind, occurring in my mind near my 2019 SSR. Well, that has already happened BIG TIME! But, I have to have a practical plan because Ebertin says about a possible manifestation of Moon/Jupiter = Neptune:
Disadvantages through speculation or wastefulness.
So, I must be very careful with my gambling and speculation issues throughout my solar year. But I see something in my Natal Chart falling on my SSR angles which may offer my gambling/speculation in my solar year with a “Magician and Adept” mode for myself. This possible “Magician/Adept” influence may be offered to me through Jim's great teachings with Sidereal Mundane Astrology, only TIME knows for sure.

My first recreational gambling venture will occur on Nov 9 2020 which I will post about later with Sidereal Mundane Astrology. I will take 10% of my bank account (a rare happening) and risk in an attempt to start fulfilling the main theme of Moon-Jupiter-Neptune for some possible Moon-Jupiter fun/success. If I lose the Nov 9 bet, I will cease all gambling/speculations issues for the solar year. In other words, if I lose the Nov 9 wager, I will know Ebertin's malefic delineation for Moon/Jupiter =Neptune is probably correct; but, like I said—I think have some Aces up my sleeve with Sidereal Mundane Astrology. more later...

Yes, thanks Arena. :) I am also looking forward to this SSR with its possible manifestations for me. Its going to be a fun recreational challenge for me; win, lose, or draw :) . My objective is to risk 10% of my bank account on Nov 9 for a possible growth of my bank account 40-50% throughout the solar year on several possible speculative situations with possible future criteria. This will allow me to practice all of my astrological skills/learnings for myself. The Nov 9 wager will be important for possible success, for if I win my betting strategy will not allow me to lose, regardless any other future bets after Nov 9. But, if I lose the Nov 9 wager, I will cease operations. I have to wait till Nov 9 to see if certain criteria is in place for the sporting event, but I will be able to start posting before Nov 9 about my personal Sidereal Astrology cycles with my views pertaining to Ebertin's book 'Combination of Stellar Influences', and with other astrologer's views. I welcome all others astrological opinions. :)

I want know until Oct 27 if the criteria will be met for me to make my first wager for my solar year, with my personal recreational gambling venture/objective to increase my bank account. But, two huge incidents occurred this last week which definitely falls under manifestations for my Moon-Jupiter-Neptune t- square signature in my current SSR. It probably was timed with this t-square being activated with p. SSR Moon becoming par-tile with p. Moon 21,22 Tau, p. Jupiter 21,54 Scorpio, p. Neptune 22,00 Aqu. Here is what happened:

1: About mid-week I saw a post by Jim in the Bernie Sanders thread: https://www.solunars.com/viewtopic.php? ... 112#p26576

which prompted me to look deeply into Bernie's A rated timed horoscope. I was stunned by the very benefic symbolism I saw using my methodology for election year 2020. I made a definite decision: If Bernie happens to win the Dem candidate for Prez, I will definitely make a recreational wager on Bernie becoming the next Prez. I am sure Bernie will be an underdog with Vegas betting odds.

2: My wife & I belong to a small club of party people called “Blasts from the Past.” Once every Quarter this club gets together on Friday's for old movies, music, dancing, with a catered dinner. Being the designated movie and you tube music man, I will organize old movies from the past with selected you-tube musical video's to watch on a large screen after dinner. By the time the movie ends every one is in a good mood with the alcohol contents just right :) , and the musical videos begin with, at times, wild dances from the past. This past Friday's event was collectively called the best ever by the group which made me feel Jupiter proud since the club depends on me to organize the entertainment blasts from the past. The old movie played last Friday was 'Jewel of the Nile,' and I discovered a you-tube musical Video by Billy Ocean, “When the Going Gets Tough the Tough Gets Going.” I will post this you tube video in Club Aldebaran . I played this video after the movie and everyone got-up and started intimidating the line dancing done by Michael Douglas, Katherine Turner, and Danny Devito in the musical video, with the demand I keep playing the music video over and over. Believe me, everyone's alcohol content was perfect. :D

I was born with Jupiter rising and I want to quote a couple of sentences from Donald Bradley's great book “Taking the Kid Gloves Off Astrology” about the symbolism of Jupiter, which penetrates deep into my soul about learning who I am with my Natal Chart. IMO, It is important for all of us studying astrology to get to know ourselves, where we can as much as possible join in harmony with certain possible signatures with our Natal and SSRs. The study of Sidereal Astrology along with studying Ebertin's book 'Combination of Stellar Influences' –(positive & negative manifestations) helps us to minimize our negative cycles with forethought and maximize our positive cycles which flow through us from the nature of the cosmos we live. We all live with our negative and positive astrological cycles.

Bradley:
Jupiter plainly is the ruler of music or, at least, of musical appreciation.
And
Jupiter rules gambling and speculation.


So, you see how that partile p Moon 180 p Jupiter 90 p Neptune in my current SSR last week captured my soul/being with a positive timing frame in my life. It was an adrenaline high for myself shared with others! :)

Sounds awesome :)

Yes, you have persuaded me that, at the very least, Jupiter is music appreciation and probably music production. Your story reminds me, though, of the maestro and "great show" idea of Jupiter - maestro being long associated with Sagittarius. I think Jupiter has the knack to get people to remark, "Wow, great show!" whether it's Beethoven, Puccini, Elvis, or non-musical showmen like Howard Stern.

BTW, I would rate Bernie's 12:27 birth time as C, not A. There are still too many gaps on who said what to whom - no known identities in the mix - so I think it qualifies as "unknown source." Nonetheless, with your add-ons this week I'm seriously looking it at as probably his actual chart.

I understand Jim.

Yes, only if he becomes the Dem candidate, and second if elected Prez, will I become serious we have his actual chart. That once in a life time Solar Arc Jupiter approaching exact cnj to his Natal MC in 2020 in the C rated will definitely convince me we have a correct time if he is elected Prez.

When I read your post it reminded me of an article I read just a few days ago that long term couples/married people can keep their love flame alive by getting adrenaline kicks together. Apparently the quiet dinner dates people often do to get themselves out of the house every now and then do not serve as a happy glue/spark ... it is done by getting adrenaline flowing in your blood :)

In the right setting dancing to good music is the best adrenaline high for couples I know/see. The right alcohol content helps. :)

I don't think that's adrenaline, Steve.

After studying astrology for about 20 years in my 40 years of study, I started applying the following words by British astrologer C.E.O. Carter to certain objectives in my life:
The natus is not, or at least need not be the Man/Woman. It is rather his/her general life pattern and the instruments available for his/her use.
It took me about 15 years of studying certain astrology books before I realized the key to astrology is to learn to “Know Thyself.”

C.E.O. Carter's book “Principles of Astrology” was the first astrology book I ever read in 1977, and I was reminded of this when I recently read one of Kay Cavendar's astrological essays at https://www.solunars.com/viewtopic.php? ... 8&start=25 ; page 2 with Jim's post April 1 2018, 3:16 AM. When it comes to understanding special things on a heart level about astrology, Kay is a special Sidereal Astrology person and imo, a gifted astrological writer. I highly recommend Kay's above referenced essay.

I also apply Carter's above quoted words to my Sidereal Solar Returns (SSRs) when I see dynamic aspect structures, for I believe as Cyril Fagan-- SSRs is like a new natus for one year and should be combined with the Natal Chart looking to enhance certain individualized 'instruments' (aspect structures) for possible use, minimizing possible negative aspects and enhancing possible positive aspects. As I have often stated on this forum, imo, there is no greater Sidereal Solar Return teacher than the host of this forum, Mr. James A. Eshelman, and that includes the father of Sidereal Astrology and modern rediscover of the Sidereal Solar Return from the ancients—Cyril Fagan.

My favorite book to use when I set certain objectives for my life is Reinhold Ebertin's book “The Combination of Stellar Influences.” This one book has greatly helped me understand the verbs of astrology—the planets and their aspects, and Sidereal Astrology has taught me the vast importance of solunars angles and/or lunar aspects.

Throughout my 2019 solar year, for what it may be worth to the novice student of SSRs, I will be offering some posts how I plan/time certain activities with the teachings of Sidereal Astrology (Solunars) and certain other astrological techniques combined with the book—“Combinations of Stellar Influences.” I am certainly no adept but constantly strive for adeptness with my astrological philosophy pertaining to my personal life.

There is something I must explain about certain circumstances about my 2019 SSR, which will help us all learn. Matthew Quellas (RIP), once a close colleague of Jim, taught me to pay close attention to 'out of ordinary' circumstances in your life about a month before a new SSR, particularly if your SSR featured dynamic aspects/structures. Jim, I assume Matthew learned this from you or you and Matthew came to the same conclusions.

Here is what happened in my life about 10 days before my new 2019 SSR set-up. My best friend of 53 in my life visited me for 3 nights. He is a very successful business man and always enters different kinds of large $ amount of sports betting pools each year. I can't afford to enter these same betting pools. But last year when I had t. Jupiter going over my Natal Moon, I used Jim's Super Bowl analysis on 50 Super Bowls using Sidereal Mundane Astrology (SMA) which helped my friend win one of the these large $ pools. Jim's analysis of these 50 Super Bowl winners/looser proves out to be 80% accurate for picking winners and losers. A professional gambler will always use any kind of historical evidence proven by mathematical statistics which proves out to be 80% accurate. Last year my friend and I hit a hot streak betting using SMA. Back in the mid 90s, my friend spent 2 years in Vegas going to Restaurant/Casino Management School for a possible career in the Casino business, but became as part owner of a very successful Beach Side Cafe in Gulf Shores Alabama.

Anyway, when my friend came to visit me in Sept, he asked me to look at some possible future games using SMA to do some early prediction on certain possible important psychological content involving sporting contest. I found something which looked most interesting using SMA, but only if the psychological content (criteria) existed for a game on Nov 9 2019. If this psychological criteria exists for this Nov 9 game, my friend is going to bet all of his pool points on this game, and if win, he will probably win another large football pool. With large $ football pools you can risk small amounts of money relative to the size of your bank account and win substantial amts of $.

If this psychological criteria is available for the Nov 9th game, my friend has invited me and wife down to his place in Gulf Shores for lots of social gala with him and his mate, all expenses paid my friend. In other words, win of lose the possible wager on the Nov 9 game, we are going to have lots of social fun!!! I have looked at all of our charts and there is a-lot of fun-loving social aspects. The first chart I want to show will be my current Oct 30 SLR for this possible trip which begins on Nov 7. Mundo Jupiter is 00,15 cnj my SLR ASC! I will be in Springville when this SLR sets-up. So far the psychological criteria for this Nov 9 game still exists. More charts and and astrology later.

One of the best solunar guidelines I have discovered in timing/planing certain possible benefic incidents for my life, when certain dynamic benefic aspects appear in a SSR, are Donald Bradley's words from his book “Solar and Lunar Returns” which state:
Lunar Returns, while more powerful in immediate effect, are subservient to the preceding solar return. Therefore, we must look to the lunar return for proof that lunar returns usually “time” the major occurrences foreshadowed in the annual (SSR) chart.
Since my current SSR features a benefic foreground Moon (20,54 Tau) 180 to Jupiter (21,55 Sco), I will look to my Oct 30 Lunar Return (SLR) with transiting Jupiter near exact cnj my SLR ASC as timing the peak benefic manifestations for my 2019 SSR, and possibly setting-up other major benefics tones/incidents for the rest of my solar year.

I agree with the above entirely.

I came up with a new visualization of this over the last few days. Steve, you'll find this interesting with how closely you follow the stock market. The market itself has larger trends, and then within that are more frequent ups and downs. A "down" during a high market isn't nearly so "down" as it is during along market. The shorter-term ups and downs are measured against the current average baseline.

Similarly, I saw this week that the solar return characteristics set a general trend in motion. On good years, that trend runs high (though it will have ups and downs); in bad years, it runs low; on other years, it's pretty even. But, within that general trend, the lunar returns show shorter ups and downs.

This translates into a few simple guidelines:

* The best times are when the SSR and SLR are both positive.
* The worst times are when the SSR and SLR are both negative.
* A bad SLR during a good SSR is not so bad in comparison.
* A good SLR during a bad SSR is not all that good in comparison.

I think we already tend to think in these terms, but I can't recall anyplace I've seen this stated quite this way before, so thought it might be useful.

The only times I pay any great attention to an Ennead chart is when I see Jim's definition for an 'outstanding incident' in a return chart which reads as:
It is when angularity and aspect partility (1 degree or less) coincide that outstanding incidents are likely to come about.
Note my Oct 31 Ennead Chart (link below), there is a partile Mercury-Venus conjunction with a stationed Mercury, which is tightly cnj the Ennead Asc qualifying as an 'outstanding incident' return chart. Also note the partile Moon-Jupiter cnj which echos my tight Moon-Jupiter 180 in my SSR. This is a nice benefic set-up for the time frame I have selected to time a-lot of social partying with my wife and best friend, and with a possible wager using Sidereal Mundane Astrology during the second week of Nov.

Enneads are 9 charts during the solar year which I believe possibly helps us to time when the main symbolism in our SSRs will manifest, and when I see possible 'outstanding incidents' SSRs symbolism, I want to follow Donald Bradley's same guidelines for lunar returns with Ennead's Charts for electing certain time frames in my life for certain activities. Again, Donald Bradley states from his book Solar and Lunar Returns:
Lunar Returns, while more powerful in immediate effect, are subservient to the preceding solar return. Therefore, we must look to the lunar return for proof that lunar returns usually “time” the major occurrences foreshadowed in the annual chart.
So, I see for my life a SLR on Oct 30 which features a 00,15 Jupiter cnj my SLR ASC and a benefic 'outstanding incident' Ennead Return Chart on Oct 31. These two return charts are the main reason I have selected Nov 6,7,8,9 for some major social partying activity with a road trip. Later, I will offer transit charts and quotidian charts which fall within this same time frame showing benefic influences.

I will try to remember later to post Solar Fire instructions for calculating your 9 Ennead charts for your solar years.
