Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 4/23/2012: Ease on Down the Road

A potentially slow start to the morning, with chances of a high flake factor or unexpected twist, especially if you live in the eastern times zones in the U.S. As I type, Moon has been void of course in material comfort-seeking Taurus since 1:10PM ET Sunday…and it doesn’t enter Gemini until 1:05PM ET Monday (today). I spent part of the void applying the inspiration and innovation of planetary patterns (read Friday’s forecast for details of said patterns) into a rich asparagus soup and a lemon-thyme roasted chicken, which will provide much material comfort over the next few days. You?

Other Moon voids for the week: Wednesday 4:31PM ET – Thursday 1:42AM ET; Saturday 3:05AM – 12:10PM ET

Moon’s ingress into Gemini quickens the pace of the afternoon, as the need to inform and be informed pulls focus. Pick up the phone; write that email and have that conversation, using an easy application of practical energy suggested by a smooth connection between Sun in Taurus and Mars in detail-oriented Virgo (exact at 8:59PM ET). As the evening progresses, note these two caveats: 1) a challenge between Moon and nebulous Neptune, at 6:33PM ET which adds inspiration and/or confusion to the mix; 2) a challenge between Moon and nitpicky Mars at 9:46PM ET, suggesting heightened egos and/or emotional outbursts.

Meanwhile, if you’re digging for truth or dirt, this week’s challenge between ruthless Pluto and mental Mercury (exact Wednesday at 10:50AM ET) suggests the potential for communication that cuts right to the heart of the matter.  Watch for more news from underground as the week progresses.

And speaking of news, I found these headlines especially in line with planetary patterns. Regarding Sunday’s Uranus-Mercury conjunction suggesting innovation and aviation, I was intrigued by a New York Times Magazine piece on inventors http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/22/magazine/is-this-really-the-golden-age-for-inventors.html? Also of note: progress made on a possible merger between bankrupt American Airlines and U.S. Air http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/21/business/us-air-strikes-deal-with-amrs-unions.html   travel agents may be making a comeback http://travel.nytimes.com/2012/04/22/travel/are-travel-agents-back.html?hpw   and a plane crash in Pakistan.

Of note in the “Confuse-A-Cat”* category (nebulous Neptune opposing Mars), we saw numerous stories of spectacular showmanship/deception/things not being as they seem, including a fascinating front page story about a New York socialite’s made-up life http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/22/nyregion/the-secret-life-of-alan-z-feuer.html and a Discovery Channel documentary that had record ratings — about a woman whose harrowing tale of surviving the destruction of the World Trade Center turned out to be pure fiction www.washingtonpost.com/entertainment/books/the-woman-who-wasnt-there-the-true-story-of-an-incredible-deception-by-robin-gaby  And then there’s Wal-Mart, apparently scandalized by big news of bribery and a cover-up in Mexico www.nytimes.com/2012/04/22/business/at-wal-mart-in-mexico-a-bribe-inquiry-silenced.html?pagewanted=all
