I was just surprised to suddenly realize that today I had 7
transits that were sesquisquare (sesquare, sesquiquadrate, what have you) to my natal chart, all within a 1 degree orb:
- t. Moon ssq my Saturn
- t. Moon ssq my Chiron
- t. Mars ssq my Ascendant
- t. Saturn ssq my Venus
- t. Saturn ssq my Jupiter
- t. Uranus ssq my Pluto
- t. Chiron ssq my Neptune (separating)
However, this has not been an unusually bad day.
I certainly HAVE been ailing under t. Saturn square my Ascendant; t. Uranus square/opposite my T-square of Chiron, Saturn and Uranus; and t. Mars opposite my Pisces stellium. All these I can backtrack to actual unpleasant events when the transits came in orb, and continue to experience the ongoing stresses. (T. Mars Rx brought on plantar fasciitis coming back into opposition to my Pisces Mars, and I actually suffered a serious injury to my foot when t. Mars opposed my Mars exactly...and did not realize how serious until I took my socks off later that night and saw the awful bruise! How classic Pisces vs Mars is that?!!)
But after today's cluster of sesquisquares, I'm wondering if I've been giving them too much attention. I know Lois Rodden and SolarFire include them in their readings as important malefics, but Robert Hand completely ignores them in Planets in Transit.
Our moderator Vista doubted their signficance and now, so do I, considering that with SEVEN sesquisquares hitting me at once today, I should feel much
worse...but I don't. <knocking on wood>
I would love to have all your views on sesquisquare transits.
