JAE SLRs & Demi-SLRs 2022-23

Post by Jim Eshelman » Wed Aug 10, 2022 5:03 pm

Even with the software advantages, it's a tedious, time-consuming task to do a year of lunars and demi-lunars. Therefore, as I reach two months from my birthday, I should start the process. In the posts below, I'll start with pasting the tech details from T MSA, then come back and work them up properly and add anticipatory comments.

I expect my SSR will set up in Jamul, CA. If that changes, I'll come back and change it. SSR Moon 4°40' Aries travels 13°13' during the year, reaching 17°53' Aries by the end of the year: It will oppose natal Saturn around July and oppose natal Mercury immediately before the next SSR.

t Venus on Z -0°23'
r Jupiter on WP-a -0°01'

t Moon on IC +3°39'

Dec 1, 2022, 7:15:34 AM PST, my office (Century City)
Benefic = 8, Mazlefic = 4, Change = 0, Spotlight = 5
Dignity = 8, Indignity = 1, Sex = 5

Impressions: (No SSR echoes.) No natal planets foreground - only transiting. Of these, most are barely foreground. Although the barely foreground planets have some strange, even unsettling (surely confusing) aspects, the closely foreground planets are primarily benefic and look enjoyable.

t Mercury on Asc -7°09'
t Mars on Dsc -3°59'
t Venus on Asc -3°37'

----------------------------
t Jupiter on IC +1°39'
t Sun on Asc +6°19'

Benefic = 17, Malefic = 8, Change = 16, Spotlight = 0, Dignity = 7, Indignity = 8
Shifting Conditions = 11, Commerce = 11

Impressions: (Some SSR echoes, though not purely.) This is an "outstanding" SLR: Transiting Uranus to natal Jupiter-Uranus, and transiting Pluto to natal Saturn-Uranus (plus Jupiter) sounds like a very dramatic shift in fundamental structures and sense of prosperity. The single closest angularity of these five planets is natal Jupiter 0°04' from IC.

Impressions: (No SSR echoes.) This is an "outstanding" return - outstandingly bad! A partile Moon-Mars-Neptune configuration falls in the immediate foreground (as in late October). Mars-Neptune itself is 0°00'! I will definitely be headed somewhere else for this demi-SLR. Somewhere in eastern Arizona is becoming the default for these, easier to get to than eastern Utah, gives Jupiter angular. Chicago is also OK for this one.)
NOTE: t Jupiter is on IC at 110W18, precisely the longitude of Sierra Vista, AZ south of Tombstone (and, of course, all places north-south of it).

t Jupiter on IC -9°38'
-------------------------
t Moon on MC +0°30'
t Mars on Dsc +1°00' (stationary)
t Neptune on IC +1°01'

t Mars-Neptune sq 0°00' M
t Moon-Neptune op 0°31' M
(Neptune co r Moon 0°38')

For Sierra Vista, AZ: (notice t Moon is barely foreground, r Moon is not at all)

tJupiter on IC 0°00'
t Mars on Dsc +9°23'
t Moon on MC +9°16'
t Neptune on IC +10°00'

Post by Jim Eshelman » Wed Aug 10, 2022 5:31 pm

Feb 8, 2023, 9:56:08 AM PST, home [should redo for work]

Impressions: This is an "outstanding" return with strong echoes of the SSR: Transiting Pluto opposes natal Jupiter-Uranus (partile) all exactly square Ascendant. Presuming Pluto to Jupiter-Uranus is positive (as it usually is), this is spectacular (well, not so crazy about natal Neptune). I'm sure it will be a spectacle either way.

Mar 7, 2023, 4:02:01 PM PST, home

Impressions: (No SSR echoes.) A very unpleasant chart, probably personal, sad, and abrupt. There is loss in this picture. (A little east of Desert Center, CA puts natal Venus precisely angular, though it's the target of the hard aspects. Is this desirable? I suspect it is not.)

Impressions: (Some SSR echoes.) Based on the aspects, it seems quite positive. Given the natal Mars emphasis, it seems a competitive victory, an overt triumph over an opponent.

Apr 4, 2023, 12:15:22 AM PDT, home

Impressions: (No SSR echoes.) A malefic return, but most things are weak. It doesn't have the feverish illness and fearful anxiety feel of the two earlier Moon-Mars-Neptune demis. Probably pretty minor. (Non-foreground partile aspects include Mercury-Pluto [with Mercury square my Jupiter-Uranus], Venus-Saturn [engaging my Pluto], and Mars square my Sun.)

May 14, 2023, 11:56:55 AM PDT, home

Impressions: (No SSR echoes.) Technically, this is an "outstanding" SLR because natal Mercury conjunct Saturn (0°38' M) is within 1° of IC (natal Saturn being 0°08'). One usually doesn't expect the extraordinary, though, from all-natals. - I don't know how much to expect from the close Uranus-Pluto transit since they are both so far from the angles.

Impressions: With Jupiter exactly angular and the Pluto oppositions to Jupiter-Uranus, this echoes important themes from the SSR. - As this is immediately before Marion's birthday and our anniversary, we may not be in LA (or may not have left) - we don't have firm plans yet on where we are going, though it might be Brazil.

t Mercury on Dsc -9°20'
t Jupiter on Dsc -0°14'
-----------------------------
r Saturn on EP-a +0°11'
r Mercury on EP-a +0°28'
t Mars on MC +0°56'

t Pluto on IC +5°11'
r Neptune on Asc +6°15'

r Jupiter on MC +7°21'
r Uranus on MC +7°32'


t Mercury op r Mercury 0°20'
t Pluto sq r Neptune 1°04' M
t Mars-Jupiter sq 1°09' M
t Pluto op r Jupiter 1°31'
t Pluto op r Uranus 1°48'
t Mercury op r Saturn 2°16' M
t Jupiter-Pluto sq 2°33'

r Jupiter-Uranus co 0°11' M
r Mercury-Saturn co 0°39'
in RA
r Jupiter-Neptune sq 1°06' M
r Uranus-Neptune sq 1°17' M



For Conselheiro Lafaiete, Brazil, it's a quite impactful and positive chart (nearly as much as Marion's SSR for the same spot). While there, it would look like this:

t Jupiter on IC -7°51'
t Mars on Dsc -6°02'
r Neptune on MC -2°06'
t Pluto on Asc -0°52'
--------------------------
r Jupiter on Dsc +0°18'

Impressions: (No SSR echoes.) It seems a tough month of much commotion and anxiety. Since it is transiting (not natal) Moon with Neptune, I'm unclear whether this shows me unusually frail in the face of increased burden. (The Saturn is only weakly foreground, but the Neptune does nothing to contradict it.) - Mostly, it looks like I just want to leave!

This is an "outstanding" return in a sense: My partile natal Venus-Pluto square is in the immediate foreground. However, one doesn't expect much from natal aspects alone.

Impressions: (No SSR echoes.) This is much the same as the SLR and probably shows its full flowering. It won't be pleasant in either personal or practical ways. As an investment in the rest of my life, I may want to take these two charts somewhere other than LA (except there is no reasonably reachable place that adds a positive).

Impressions: (No SSR echoes.)A Mars-dominated demi in a Saturn-dominated month seems harsh, with likely negative outcome. The exact Moon-Sun conjunction is powerful and, by itself, would be quite positive - it certainly shows this as a pivotal fortnight.

Impressions: (No SSR echoes.) A minor chart. Mercury is the main player (and there is a 3°19' Moon-Mercury conjunction if I widened the orbs just a little). Non-foreground partile aspects include a background Venus-Uranus square and Pluto opposite my Jupiter-Uranus mid-quadrant.

Impressions: (No SSR echoes.) This actually occurs after my next birthday. (The SSR will likely be local, probably around Solvang.) This upbeat, "recovering nicely" chart finishes out the year's last SLR. (If Class 2 aspects are included, we get Jupiter opposite natal Saturn 3°17', the "recovery" aspect I mentioned, plus a slightly wider Uranus transit to natal Pluto.) - I don't need to travel for this one but, if I do, then Carpenteria is just about perfect.

SLR 10/7/22

Post by Jim Eshelman » Mon Oct 03, 2022 7:46 am

Oct 7, 2022, 7:56:30 PM PDT, home
Benefic = 14, Malefic = 8, Change = 11, Spotlight = 0, Dignity = 5, Indignity = 8

Impressions: Preparing to start the new year. The first SLR occurs three days before the new SSR. Like the incoming SSR, this SLR has Pluto opposite natal Jupiter-Uranus foreground and is dominated (but not exclusively) by benefics. The charts are thematically similar. (Pluto's angularity is wider than in the SSR, but it seems worth mentioning the parallel.) - My SSR will occur at a casino, so I might be able to make practical use of the doubled-up odds-defying positivity (though I don't have a gambler's chart at birth, so I do tend to get in my own way on such things.)

Beyond that, and perhaps more immediately important, this is an "outstanding" SLR. We will still be in LA. Uranus opposite natal Venus is the primary feature, so it should be fun. I already know it will oversee a month of at least three trips (two primarily for pleasure) - one to San Diego County for my birthday, one a mad dash to eastern Arizona to reprogram my demi-SLR in two weeks, and one to Memphis in the second half of the month - so this Uranus-Venus is a great fit already! (I'll be out of the office about half the time in October.)

t Saturn on Z -1°56'
r Venus on Dsc -1°48'
t Uranus on Asc -1°11'
----------------------------
r Saturn on Dsc +2°31'
r Jupiter on IC +2°47'
r Uranus on IC +3°09'
r Mercury on Dsc +5°31'
t Pluto on MC +6°44'


t Uranus op r Venus 0°37' M
t Saturn-Uranus sq 0°38'

t Pluto sq r Mercury 1°13' M
t Pluto op r Uranus 2°16'
t Pluto op r Jupiter 2°33'

r Jupiter-Saturn sq 0°15' M
r Jupiter-Uranus sq 0°17'
r Saturn-Uranus sq 0°38' M

r Mercury-Uranus sq 2°22' M
r Mercury-Saturn sq 2°24'
r Mercury-Jupiter sq 2°44' M

i.e., r Jupiter-Uranus sq. r Mercury-Saturn


Notice how close everything is. If (since there is so much going on) I try to simply by excluding Class 3 angularities, nothing gets dropped - it's all Class 1 or 2. If I drop Class 2 angularities, the only surviving aspects are transiting Uranus opposite natal Venus plus a natal Jupiter-Saturn paran - both partile. Notice also that it is NATAL benefics that light up and dominate the chart: Were I to look at this chart as transit-only (in the style of the 1940s), it would seem a worrisome chart, even though on balance I regard it as quite pleasant looking.

Re: SLR 10/7/22

Post by Jim Eshelman » Thu Oct 13, 2022 5:18 pm

So far, this is going more or less as expected. The starring Uranus transit to natal Venus indeed marking a fun, interesting, outside the usual sort of time (with the birthday trip reported elsewhere). Saturn had her say - there were restrictions and limitations, but they didn't dominate. Other than the lens issue (that "owned" the turf for a few hours), the first few days were clearly led by Uranus' 0°13' opposition to natal Venus, and the week off work (unfortunately, not even able to do the work I wanted to do!) shows in the main mix of planets.

So far so good... with two more trips before these four weeks are over, one definitely for fun. If the new lens comes in tomorrow, I'll be happy enough with the week. (We even got deliveries from three wineries today, about a case of wine altogether. Our supplies had nearly bottomed out, which hasn't happened perhaps in a decade)

I'm not exactly sure what the Saturn-Uranus square means. It's touching so many things these days, it's hard to filter out - hard to identify specifically. Bradley's classic interpretation (the basis of my standard paragraph) doesn't really do it (at least, not very specifically; e.g., I suppose seeing the world without my corrective lens could count as "harsh confrontation with reality,:" but that seems straining at the words for a fit). Fagan didn't give an interpretation for concurrent Saturn + Uranus. As expected, the usual Saturn-Uranus natal interpretation doesn't fit. I do9n't find clues in interps for Uranus transits to Saturn or Saturn transits to Uranus (well, "rebelling against restrictions" and then "voluntarily accepting new limits" of Saturn-to-Uranus is close to the reactions to the lens issue) - probably as close as I'm going to get. Nothing on Ebertin's Saturn-Uranus page is useful.

I'm not too stressed about this (Saturn-Uranus joke) but I don't think I understand this one technical detail in this chart. The month remains young, of course.

IMO (looking from the outside), this aspect simply manifested with “irritability & tension” over the lens issue when ready to leave on the trip and some for the trip itself. It manifested as an “out of the ordinary incident” but not that harsh since both Saturn & Uranus were octile Jupiter, also probably helping (Jupiter) for a quick replacement of the lens by your eye doctor. In other words it would have been worse if not for Jupiter’s octile to the angular Saturn-Uranus aspect.

This fits, of course,, and you're probably right - some version of "tension from wanting different circumstances." However, for a partile Saturn-Uranus square strongly angular, I'd expect a bit more.

What I failed to mention in the analysis yesterday (above) is that this IS a good example of how relative strengths of planets give information. The Saturn-Uranus square is 0°58' wide. Uranus is at 100% angularity strength (1°11' from Asc) and Saturn at 98% strength (1°56' from Zenith). This 100% to 98% gap is considerable. The difference means that, in a contest, Uranus wins! For example, on the question of "Do I get to go on the trip?" - a question of "is my freedom too restricted vs. does freedom triumph" - the answer is, yes, the experience of "getting out," changing scenery, discovery, travel, or whatever prevails over restriction, containment, etc. (though there was room in the outcome for frustration and delays).

Of course, I never took time to reason this out - the universe just worked it out. We do this kind of comparative weighting with planet pairs that are obviously opposites - Jupiter vs. Saturn to see whether, on balance, it will be a gain or loss month; Venus vs. Mars to see whether, on balance, it will be kind or coarse; sun vs. Moon to see whether we will sit solidly in the saddle or be drawn into a flurry of shifting circumstances requiring non-stop adaptation. Whichever is even slightly closer tips the scales. Saturn and Uranus are opposites of a fashion, and while my first instinct is to simply interpret their aspect, the fine details are in such things as their comparative strength.

Years back, I tended to read this sort of thing the opposite way. With a strong Saturn-Uranus square on angles, Uranus more angular than Saturn, I would read this as, "This is primarily a Uranus chart - Uranus themes - but the Uranus is restricted, limited, afflicted, so it will be a bad Uranus, a frustrated Uranus." But that's the wrong approach. The correct approach is, "Uranus and Saturn are having a tug of war and Uranus is stronger: Uranus wins."

Indeed Jim, this happens a-lot to us astrologers. When I first looked at your Oct 7 SLR knowing you were taking a road trip for relocating your SSR, you know my style of first looking to see if the return chart classifies itself as an “outstanding incident” chart according to your guidelines in ISR, and it did. So, being a disciple of Ebertin’s COSI for their delineating tones paying the closes attention to the “Principle” of the planetary combo of Saturn-Uranus I would expect a high % for the “Principle” of:
Irritability and inhibition, tension
for something to do with the road trip, and we see this Saturn-Uranus manifestation with the lost eye lens upon a schedule time for leaving for the trip. “Outstanding incident” SLRs are my # 1 go to charts for planning all of my road trips and other things at home. I love to schedule as much as possible benefic “outstanding incident” SLRs road trips for my life. And yes, I understand overall Uranus won out over Saturn with your rating system, which is actually an excellent way to look at angular aspects with return charts.

I think you missed that this was the second strongest aspect. The strongest is transiting Uranus opposite natal Venus in mundo which, of course, fit the trip.

Yes, I saw that Venus-Uranus the first look and knew it would manifest good for you and Marion, which it most certainly did with the planned trip. :) But, when you reported that lost lens I thought to myself---there it is: that Saturn-Uranus. That Saturn-Uranus could have manifested in many different ways but you handle its manifestation well and did not let it spoil your trip. :)

Demi-SLR 10/22/22

Post by Jim Eshelman » Wed Oct 19, 2022 5:06 pm

Oct 22, 2022, 4:22:14 AM PDT, home
Benefic = 3, Malefic = 8, Change = 3, Spotlight = 6, Dignity = 3, Indignity = 5
Vulnerability-Sensitivity= 11

Impressions: This is an "outstanding" SLR - outstandingly bad! It's only two days before we fly to Memphis for a week of fun, so I particularly do not want the infectious, sickness-prone markers of Moon-Mars-Neptune on angles (which could keep me from being allowed to fly). We decided last summer that we'd drive to Superior, AZ for a turn-around trip, to get something quite different for the set-up. (We're on the road Friday, back on Saturday night.) Notice that this is all under the SLR with transiting Uranus opposite natal Venus across the horizon - a month of travel.

If it set up at home, this would be the chart:

t Jupiter on Dsc -5°57'
t Mars on MC -1°29'
--------------------------
r Moon on Dsc +0°49'
t Neptune on Dsc 1°17'

t Neptune co r Moon 0°28'
t Mars-Neptune sq 2°02'
t Mars sq r Moon 2°19'

On the positive side, the chart has partile Sun conjunct Venus, both square natal Jupiter-Uranus. I would expect these non-foreground aspects to be the backdrop (what's going on despite the primary themes of angular planets).



In Superior, AZ, the chart becomes:
Benefic = 7, Malefic = 4, Change = 0, Spotlight = 3, Dignity = 7, Indignity = 1
t Jupiter on Asc 0°01'
t Mars on MC +5°14'
r Moon on Asc +6°54'

t Neptune on Dsc +7°16'

t Neptune co r Moon 0°21' M
t Mars sq r Moon 1°41' M
t Mars-Neptune 2°02'

I still get Moon-Mars-Neptune foreground, but much wider; and the precisely angular Jupiter should overwhelm it. (It's the best I can do. Ideally we'd have gone much further east, but I think the 0°00' Jupiter [approx.] will do the job. - I keep the Sun-Venus to Jupiter-Uranus, of course.



Once we land Sunday night in Memphis, TN, it becomes:
Benefic = 2, Malefic = 4, Change = 4, Spotlight = 6, Dignity = 7, Indignity = 1
r Jupiter on MC -9°02'
r Uranus on MC -8°47'
r Neptune on Asc -7°56'

t Pluto on IC -6°17'
r Mars on IC -4°35'

-----------------------------
r Sun on Asc +0°22'
t Mercury on Asc +0°40'


t Mercury co r Sun 0°07'
t Pluto sq r Neptune 0°14'
r Jupiter-Uranus co 0°15' M
r Uranus-Neptune sq 0°51' M

r Jupiter-Neptune sq 1°06' M

t Pluto op r Uranus 2°04' M
t Pluto co r Mars 2°08' M
t Pluto op r Jupiter 2°19' M
r Mars-Neptune sq 2°25'

Moon-Mars-Neptune is background. Natal Jupiter-Uranus is now barely foreground, still having the squares from Sun-Venus. The main feature is my Sun precisely rising conjoined by transiting Mercury.

Post by Jim Eshelman » Wed Oct 19, 2022 5:36 pm

With so much happening, I want to tighten in on the main themes by dropping out all but Class 1 angularities (and their aspects) to make the biggest themes jump out better.

At home, this would be the chart:

t Mars on MC -1°29'
--------------------------
r Moon on Dsc +0°49'
t Neptune on Dsc 1°17'

t Neptune co r Moon 0°28'
t Mars-Neptune sq 2°02'
t Mars sq r Mon 2°19'



In Superior, AZ, things get really simple:

t Jupiter on Asc 0°01'



In Memphis, TN, its also simple:

r Sun on Asc +0°22'
t Mercury on Asc +0°40'


t Mercury co r Sun 0°07'

For the night, we're at 33N17'17", 111W06'04". TMSA pulls 33N17'38", 111W05'46", so the coordinates are essentially identical to what I used above, Jupiter is 1' from Descendant.

it's an interesting little town, btw.

These are the details of my Dem-SLR for Memphis. The SLR setup in Arizona where Jupiter was 01' from an angle but, in Memphis, natal Sun is within 22' of Ascendant.

What's that mean?

Well, there I was at 12:06 PM, standing (with Marion and two friends) in Sun Studio on the spot where rock'n'roll was born, the place where Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Ike Turner, and others began their career and did their magic.

As I was standing in that spot, behind me somebody I don't know said, "Wait, is that Jim Eshelman?" They surreptitiously Googled, then, in a moment, introduced themselves. A nice, brief visit and some photos followed - the couple was visiting from St. Louis - before we returned our attention to the lesser celebrities (Elvis and the like).

Natal Sun on Ascendant!

Re: SLR 10/7/22

Post by Jim Eshelman » Tue Nov 01, 2022 3:47 pm

The Demi-SLR relocations couldn't have been more successful or expressive. Having it setup with transiting Jupiter a minute from an angle covered the initial period of our Arizona trip, the pre-flight days, and overshadowed the entire spectacular trip to Memphis. - The Moon-Mars-Neptune couldn't be avoided entirely, but it was shoved to the distant edges of the foreground and expressed only in a minor way (a skin inflammation that was mostly a nuisance). The angle relocations to Memphis identified singular, unusual events that happened specifically because I was there.

What I really wanted to mention, though, is that the full SLR has been a great example of how you just can't ignore the mundane aspects. Including them on an equal basis with ecliptical aspects is easily the biggest breakthrough in return theory and practice in decades. Going just by angularities, the SLR would have been a little pleasant, a little dour; but I read these especially from the aspects. Were the mundane aspects not included, the entire month would have been a Saturn-Uranus square plus Pluto's slow transit to my Jupiter-Uranus.

But including the mundane aspects had the SLR lead with the beautiful, stunning Uranus transit opposite natal Venus only 0°37' wide and closely angular. It's been the hallmark of the whole month, the Demi just fitting within it this time.

Solunars were the most useful tool in our arsenal before this discovery but, in hindsight, we missed a LOT in the process. Every now and then I pull up a lunar and look at it as I would in the '70s or '80s - eyeballing the angularity and taking only ecliptical aspects - just to get a fresh look at how I would have viewed it. Often I shake my head at the mystery of how these wonderful tools held our attention in the first place.

I know part of it was that I was correctly estimating or exactly calculating mundane angularities and thought the angular planets were more important, with the aspects only acting as a kind of "comment" on them. Knowing transiting Uranus and natal Venus were the most angular planets would have given me an idea similar to the closely foreground Uranus-Venus transit. With time, it's become clear that, while the closest angularities give the essential feel, the real activity, the full texture of the time is especially in the aspects. The rest is all in the relative closeness of orbs, whether of aspects or angularities: I sometimes think we should be collating aspects and angular contacts together (as if angularities were merely "aspects" with angles), using this to decide whether angularity or aspects were more important. In that case, the closest factors in the current SLR would have put the angularities themselves several steps down the list:

t Uranus op r Venus 0°37' M
t Saturn-Uranus sq 0°38'

t Uranus on Asc 1°11'
t Pluto sq r Mercury 1°13' M
r Venus on Dsc 1°48'
t Pluto op r Uranus 2°16'
r Saturn on Dsc 2°31'
t Pluto op r Jupiter 2°33'
r Jupiter on IC 2°47'

OK, the great month is over. The new one (I'll likely feel it by tomorrow) has one of my less favorite transits of this era of life, but overall this seems a quite minor chart. Other factors are likely to have more pronounced impact than this SLR.

Impressions: (No SSR echoes.) This is probably a quite minor chart. Though there is one partile foreground major transit, the planets are all weakly placed. I've added non-foreground partile aspects to supplement. (I expect minor frustrations.)

This is a good test of whether Vertex contacts (measured mundanely) are valid in these charts, since they are much stronger than the standard factors (with one aspect at 0°01'). Here are relevant azimuth positions (the natal positions are aprecessional):

266°12' - r Moon
267°13' - t Saturn
272°39' - r Mars
272°40' - t Pluto

Were these acknowledged angles, I'd expect a health crisis.

Re: SLR 11/4/22

Post by Jim Eshelman » Tue Nov 15, 2022 8:39 am

Several technical observations arise out of the last couple of lunars. (I can't call them "conclusions," because these are only a couple of observations; but they do tip some of my inquiries in certain directions.

First, considering location and relocation of lunar returns: Going back to the 10/22 Demi-SLR, remember that it had Moon-Mars-Neptune on angles for LA so we drove to Superior, AZ to put transiting Jupiter 0°01' from an angle. This also left the Moon-Mars-Neptune T-square foreground, but 5°-10° from the angles instead of partile.

The two-week was indeed primarily positive with a unusually good vacation and other positives. It was not, however, entirely free of Moon-Mars-Neptune. I didn't feel this in the day or so we were back in LA, but in Memphis I started to develop a skin rash on my lower extremities which gradually spread up my body. I interpret this as arising from the original (Arizona) DSLR which had the Moon-Mars-Neptune distantly foreground. When I returned to LA (where these were angular), it worsened - red, itching, burning, irritable.

Interpretation: The original location of the SLR ruled (overall outstanding fortnight) and likely kept the Mars-Neptune from being something worse (while I was gone, some people at work came down with a new severe virus). The month mostly went as described in the original chart, added the solar events in Memphis that I described above, and developed stronger Moon-Mars-Neptune qualities after I returned home.

This then brings us to the 11/4 SLR.

Proportionate strength of wide foreground vs. partile aspect: This chart was theoretically interesting because it's one foreground aspect was a partile Neptune conjunction with natal Moon, but they were 7°-8° from the angles. This has become one of my least favorite aspects, so I expected excessive sensitivity, a sense of frailty, various other Neptune phenomena, but perhaps not as severe as they might otherwise be.

Outcome: The aspect was fully actualized to the extent that the rash continued and worsened, making me uncomfortable and draining strength. A first attempt at getting medical attention was compromised by miscommunication between the doctor and the pharmacy. A second attempt (with only a little more confusion en route) was successful and I'm using steroids that are knocking it out fast. The course of treatment will expire exactly the day of the upcoming Demi-SLR.

The other (non-foreground) partile aspects in the SLR didn't have any real presence, unless one takes Mercury conjunct natal Saturn as a generic "undesirable circumstances and flummoxed plans" sort of thing. I don't think the chart needs it, and the other aspects weren't really obvious. It was that single Moon-Neptune conjunction, partile and widely angular, that has rather dramatically marked the time.

Prime Vertical Parans (PVPs): I also noted that the current lunar had aspects on the prime vertical. We don't get many examples of this, so I was eager to see how they might turn out. These were transiting Saturn conjunct natal Moon, transiting Pluto conjunct natal Mars, and the two conjunctions more widely conjunct each other - all within 3° of the PV (except Moon which was a little further out).

I said in advance that if these were valid, I'd expect a health crisis. That's exactly what happened, although the Moon-Neptune was probably sufficient to trigger it on its own. Nonetheless, these are encouraging for further watching of PVPs (which have proven themselves quite important in ingresses). The aspects reasonably fit the planet symbolism better than they fit Moon-Neptune (except Moon-Neptune shows sensitivity - clearly the cause of the problem and some of its symptoms). Against these PVPs, I could argue that Moon was a bit far away and the Saturn-Moon was the more descriptive aspect. Nonetheless, if anything this chart suggests I should keep looking at these.

Nov 18, 2022, 12:43:01 PM, work
Benefic = 1, Malefic = 3, Change = 3, Spotlight = 1, Dignity = 0, Indignity = 3
This occurs Friday. I should be feeling it by lunchtime Thursday.

Impressions: (No SSR echoes.) Saturn is most angular, but nothing is very strong. OTOH the one partile transiting aspect (of established planets) seems straightforward and pleasant. (Partile aspect and wider angularity is the pattern of the full SLR.) Probably private and pleasantly concentrated on work. (The non-foreground partile aspects give a mix of signals in three clusters.)
