Strong overplay of matters using the natural overlay (Aries–Pisces).
Difficulty handling, therefore tends to exhibit through opposite house, also consider layout in the Progressed Chart; overload can occur there but not in natal chart.
Native can overcome with maturity, growth, and recognizing problem patterns.

A chart that shows houses can reveal important data to assist the astrologer when seeking information about health concerns. The 6th and 12th houses and planets positioned therein should be considered first when suggesting possible health issues. The 6th for initial, early life problems and the 12th for hidden or later-in-life developments.
The astrologer should never analyze a health concern without stating that it is not to be considered as a medical diagnosis, and always urging the subject to refer to a qualified health practitioner.

Robert Hand and Bill Tierney, both referencing John Addy’s work on harmonics, have noted a certain destructive quality to the Quintile series, based on charts of such notable bad guys as Robespierre and Hitler. They do, however, also note that there is a positive and creative quality inherent in it. Hand, for instance, says that he associated the “five-series” aspects with transformation and “the fundamental energies of change (and) ability to turn creative inspiration into concrete end-products.”
Tierney tells us that in the early esoteric schools of astrology “the quintile was considered to symbolize an aspirant’s creative soul alignment with the Will of the Cosmos, suggesting that quintiles have occult, transcendental undertones.” He further suggests that quintiles fulfill their lofty universal potential once we have struggled to become more self-realized. Both authors speak of a drive and determination to create associated with the Quintiles. Yet another perspective, offered by A.G.S. Norris, tells us that “the quintile aspect is of importance in delineation from a spiritual point of view,” and associates it with Mercury and the nature of Epiphany.

Pathways Thru Astrology with Ruth Williams
Eclipses end circumstances or open the way to new ones. Solars create transitions with greater intensity and Lunars bring changes to the “form” of a situation. The house location tells where in your life the related events occur. As a reminder one’s progressed Sun and Chart Angles must be considered.
Jim Sher: firstname.lastname@example.org writes, “2011 promises to be a very exciting one with many new cycles being born that will change our lives in exciting and unpredictable ways. A Solar Eclipse always occurs at a New Moon, but becomes perhaps 100 times stronger in its effects than a regular New Moon. I refer to a Solar Eclipse as an inertia destroyer, as it seems to force us to make a significant shift in some aspects of our lives.”
Solar Jan 4 13 deg 39 min Capricorn
Solar June 1 11 deg 02 min Gemini
Lunar June 15 24 deg 23 min Sagittarius, Sun in Gemini
Solar July 1 09 deg 12 min Cancer
Solar Nov 25 02 deg 37 min Sagittarius
Lunar Dec 10 18 deg 11 min Gemini, Sun in Sagittarius
Cancer/Capricorn influence is related to security and structure.
Gemini/Sagittarius influence is related to communication, education, & belief systems.
PLUTO travelling from 04 deg 53 min to 07 deg 36 min Capricorn will stress levels of will power when aspects in Aries, Cancer, Libra, & especially Capricorn are activated. Those with similar degrees in Taurus and Virgo will experience a plus in financial affairs and work.
When Pluto and its Moon Charon were in Sagittarius optimism was rampant. When Pluto entered Capricorn in November 2008 and transited over the U.S. Federal Reserve Sun it brought a challenge for the United States, which continues to this day. This was coupled with the Saturn opposition to Uranus and square to Pluto; this T-Square guaranteed changes in laws and government. It also restricted individual control and allowed manipulation in financial matters. The opportunity for progress, personal growth & maturity was part of the challenge. Pluto/Charon rules entitlement. There are no shortcuts, positive steps are required. This should be a wake-up call to all the World rulers. Interesting that “Entitlements” seem to be currently in the news.
NEPTUNE travelling from 26 deg 45 min Aquarius to 0 deg Pisces can obscure vision. At the January 4th Eclipse, Venus is in exact square to Neptune. Venus can emphasize “love” themes or things of value to us. Aspects prominent at the time of an eclipse can repeat when the degree of the eclipse is activated later by other planetary transits. Trines 120 degrees to Gemini & Libra, or to Cancer & Scorpio from Pisces can be inspirational or deceptive. Aquarian influence intensifies socially with friends & groups and those things aspired to. Pisces influence can promote spiritual unity. The squares are to Scorpio and Taurus and opposition to Leo. All Neptune aspects must include a practical background.
URANUS travels the first 4 degrees of Aries from March 11th to the summer of 2012. Prior to March, it is still in Pisces. So a trine to 27-29 degrees of Cancer or Scorpio emphasizes emotions. Jupiter is conjunct Uranus at the time of the January 4th eclipse. This can initiate sudden insights about “belief systems”. This could call for some “revolutionary” thinking and clarifying ideas according to James Schultz who contributed to Jim Sher’s astrology site. This is the initiation of a new Jupiter-Uranus cycle which culminates in 2024. Uranus into Aries can be anti-establishment or creative expression. When Uranus enters Aries in March until the summer of 2012 it trines the first 4 degrees of Sagittarius and Leo. A Fire trine pumps lots of action. Now is the hour for the early Fire folks. Those with their Sun close to 0 degrees of Aries are truly birthing a “new self”. Also remember that it will square Cancer and Capricorn and oppose Libra. The square demands action.
