Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 5/12/2014: Sneak Peek at the Week

Good Morning!

As of 8:51PM ET on Sunday, the people-pleasing Libra Moon has been void-of-course, wandering ever so aimlessly until 9:07PM ET this evening. If you slept in late or experienced some other unusual twist, delay or flake this morning, it is par for the course. If your efforts to move forward in a straight line are thwarted, your best strategy is to roll with it, and trust that whatever crisis has everyone in a mild panic is likely much ado about nothing. Take care of routine tasks. Avoid impulse shopping; however, as astrologer Rockie Gardiner liked to advise, it’s a fine time to return items you do not really need.

Pay attention to communications and brainstorming today. Though the Moon is void, there is a harmonious aspect between mental Mercury (in clever Gemini) and action hero Mars (in diplomatic Libra). Perhaps a nugget to be filed away for further development…or a truly dynamic, but really surprising revelation supporting the major planetary pattern of the week.

Said major pattern would be Venus (money, women, social expression, beauty) making contact with the never-ending and disruptive Uranus-Pluto square, a.k.a. The Planetary Pattern Everyone Should Be Talking About. Venus-Uranus-Pluto patterns suggest sudden attractions and alliances with unusual partners; unconventional social expression and sexual orientation; social expression that is intense, witchy-bitchy, and/or emotionally cathartic. We last experienced this pattern in mid-November of last year, and here are some headlines that reflected it back then. Here’s another batch, and in it you’ll note an item about a company called Snapchat. How fascinating that this company made news again last week, on a similar pattern — and it isn’t pretty. Wonder if the owners regret not taking the zillion-dollar offer they received last fall…

In your own personal world, be open to connections and communication with others that break old established patterns and/or clear the air. Letting go of what no longer serves, based on a startling revelation is amplified, given that it’s happening on a Full Moon in intensely emotional Scorpio, exact on Wednesday. You are especially affected by this Venus-Pluto-Uranus tension if you were born between the 2nd and 4th of January, April, July and October…or if you have a planet around 13 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn. Don’t know what degrees your planets are at? Order an Astro-Basics Report, available here.

Also of note this week: action hero Mars is fiiiiiiii-nally getting ready to move forward again, as of May 19th. And since May 8th it has been moving ever so slowly backwards at 9 degrees of Libra…and it going to stay at 9 degrees Libra until June 1st. It will stationary — i.e., sitting at an apparent dead stop — from the 18th through the 22nd. So if you were born around the 30th of March, June, September or January…or if you have a planet or angle between 8 and 10 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn, you will feel it more than most. And by “it” I mean a drive to take action, for better or for worse; feeling pumped up; feeling easily irritated; attracting or engaging in outbursts of anger/aggression…or having a raging headache. “It” is neither positive nor negative; use it how you will. Doing something physical or heroic would be a positive application…and who doesn’t want to be a hero?

Your Moon voids for the rest of the week: Wednesday right after the Full Moon at 3:16PM ET until 1:44AM ET on Thursday. Friday is a bust: Moon is void from 3:43AM ET until 4:12AM ET on Saturday. Three-day weekend, anyone?

Tonight I’m packing up my bikini and portable printer and heading for the airport. Will try to post a forecast for Tuesday before then. Sad to leave Hawaii behind for now…but also looking forward to spring in New York. I love this time of year when the lilacs and peonies are in bloom….

Thank you for reading this forecast and sharing it with the Rest of  the Free World.

Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 5/8/2014: Perfectly Organized; Cardinal Grand Cross Realizations

OK campers, the long Moon void is over as of 2:24AM ET. From now until 6:08PM ET, Moon is fully engaged in Virgo, offering plenty of drive to organize, discern, sort and make things right. Take time to daydream around 5PM ET, when nebulous Neptune opposes the Moon; otherwise, move through your tasks with astonishing efficiency. You can do it!

And now, the news.

A lot happened last week that I did not share because I was distracted by dental drama. But last week’s headlines were extremely significant, as they reflected the “crisis of awareness” suggested by the Cardinal Grand Cross/Square everyone should have been talking about. For example, I’ve been saying for a couple of years now that one of the Really Big Crises That Would Change the World, as reflected by the seven exact squares between rebel Uranus and ruthless Pluto, would be climate change and the realization that the reckless, short-term thinking of human beings has caused it. And headlines last week and this week, too, continue to support that realization. Here’s a study released yesterday that shows how climate change has already impacted the United States, state-by-state. And here’s the NYT editorial about that study, published just minutes ago. And here’s an op-ed by Jon Huntsman, Jr. (R-UT), urging members of his party not to ignore the writing that is so clearly on the wall. Coincidence or conspiracy?

Another big story last week was the tape of LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling apparently advising his bi-racial girlfriend “not to bring black people” to basketball games. How does this news event reflect the huge potential for corruption exposed and a disruption of the status quo suggested by the Uranus-Pluto square? Because the world of major league sports stuff leaves me somewhat glassy-eyed (unless there’s a triple lutz involved), I was challenged to put L’Affaire Sterling in planetary perspective.  Thankfully  astrologer Bill Herbst , whose posts are rare these days — wrote a commentary on April 30th.

As noted in prior forecasts, I discovered Bill’s website 10 years ago; he was writing about the potential suggested by the Uranus-Pluto cycle way back then. I was determined to learn everything I could about why he saw things the way he did (the passage of time has proven him right)…and now that I can see them for myself, I share them with you. If you are new to this forecast and aren’t quite clear on why the Cardinal Grand Cross and the Uranus-Pluto cycle is so important, read the commentary Bill posted on April 10th. It sums up much of what I’ve written in bits and pieces during the past few years.

Last, but not least — thank you to those of you who were inspired to send donations this week — wow! I need to check my horoscope to see what transits have prompted this small outpouring of appreciation, as often months go by without that big gold button on the Daily Forecast page being clicked. Please know that these delightful surprises made my day…may your kind generosity be returned to you a thousandfold. Gratitude!

To be continued…

Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday 5/7/2014: Monica Lewinsky, Right on Schedule

A challenging connection between the royal Leo Moon and controlling Saturn at 6:51AM ET may get the day off to a cranky start. Could also suggest a stubborn and ambitious reach. Whatever it is, do not turn a molehill of attitude into a mountain of imagined crisis. The Moon will be void of course from 6:51AM ET until 2:24AM ET on Thursday, suggesting you chill! It’s a great day to play and/or wander, but if you must show up at the office, stick to what is routine. It’ll be easier to roll with whatever twists and flakes may thwart your efforts to move forward in a straight line if the stakes are not so high. Resist the urge to shop impulsively; chances are that whatever you buy will not be useful.

Meanwhile, at 10:57AM ET, mental Mercury leaves methodical Taurus for its home sign, Gemini. That should quicken thoughts and communication, especially once the Moon is no longer void. Otherwise, note the potential for communication snafus as Mercury changes signs in the void.

Many are wondering why Monica Lewinsky is suddenly back in the spotlight, talking about her affair with Bill Clinton. Because planetary patterns in her horoscope suggest it, that’s why. She is a Leo with Moon in Taurus; Libra Ascendant — just like Bill Clinton. Isn’t that interesting?

Her Moon is at 10 Taurus and directly impacted by last week’s New Moon and Solar Eclipse at 9 Taurus. Her Moon is in the 7th house (the public) and rules the 10th (career, reputation), so we expect those areas of her life to be “hot”.  Rebel Uranus is now on the cusp of her 7th house, suggesting a need to be seen for who she is — without compromise — in relationship. It also suggests a need to disrupt the status quo within the context of a relationship — or with the public.

Meanwhile, Jupiter, the cosmic sugar daddy, is right at the top of her horoscope, suggesting an expanded public status, reward or other need for recognition made manifest. There are other measurements in the horoscope that suggest a sudden burst of attention and buzz, but you get the idea.

Now what would you do if this were your horoscope and your astrologer told you about this potential for increased public status a year or two ago, hmmm? What plans would you have made?

Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday 5/6/2014: Shine, Shine, Shine; Venus at the Aries Point

Get up, get to work, have fun and shine. The Moon is in drama queen Leo, poised to act on its need for love, love, love — backed by a positive expression of assertive energy in the early morning and an unconventional, friendly approach by suppertime. Not only that, but the rock-solid Taurus Sun is in a happy dialogue with buoyant Jupiter, suggesting optimism and perhaps your own personal cheering squad for your plans for world domination.

Get it off your desk today if you can, as the Leo Moon will be void of course as of 6:51AM ET tomorrow…until 2:24AM ET on THURSDAY. Your other Moon void to consider this week starts on Friday at 6:08PM ET. Moon voids are perfect for chilling out, taking care of routine tasks and rolling with whatever twists crop up in your efforts to move forward in a straight line. Voids are not suited for signing contracts or initiating projects you wish to be of consequence. No impulse shopping either, as purchases made during Moon voids often are not nearly as useful as you imagined.

Also of note this evening: the First Quarter Moon, exact at 11:15PM ET, suggesting a challenge to whatever initiatives you’ve taken on last week’s New Moon. Something to do with values, money and anything/anyone else we might hold dear? How are your needs for creature comforts changing?

And now, the news.

On Friday you may recall that Venus — which refers to love, social expression, art, beauty, money and women — zipped into pioneering, inspiring, warrior/hero Aries. You may also recall that the first few degrees of Aries is called the Aries Point, and that any planet at the Aries Point NEEDS to attract attention. So how have Venusian concerns been prominent in recent headlines?

Exhibit A:  nothing screams Venus at the Aries Point like the riveting red carpet parade of beauty and fashion at the annual Costume Institute Gala at the Met. Factor in the evening’s Moon in regal Leo and glamorous Neptune running wild — and feast your eyes. Exhibit B: Aries is known for its me-me-me focus and proud self-reliance. How perfectly-timed to read that pioneering sex therapist Betty Dodson is making a comeback, pardon the expression. As the article linked above states:

The pensioner once dubbed the “godmother of masturbation” thanks to her 1973 bestseller, Sex for One, is relaunching her masturbation masterclasses in New York. Now 85, Dodson wants to help the post-Sex and the City, post-Girls generation of women that she believes are not nearly as liberated as they think they are….

We should all look as fabulous at 85 as Betty Dodson. Born on August 24th, 1929 in Wichita, KS — reportedly around 6:30AM, she has a pristine, perfection-seeking Virgo Ascendant with the Sun also in Virgo conjunct dreamy Neptune. This conjunction is in the 12th house, suggesting she is well-suited to serve as a consultant, with a unique and healing insider’s perspective. Naturally her Moon, which drives the horoscope, is in — pioneering, independent Aries! Also of interest: Mars at the Aries Point — unaspected — suggesting courageous action and sexual energy needs to be prominent and may run away with the rest of the horoscope. Not to be ignored: Venus conjunct Pluto in the sensitive, watery, feminine depths of Cancer. This Venus-Pluto conjunction suggests strong potential for feminine empowerment and transformation — expressed in ways that need to be nurturing, albeit intense and possibly extreme. This Venus-Pluto pattern squares Dodson’s Aries Moon, amplifying the need for self-indulgence and empowerment! Isn’t astrology amazing? What does YOUR horoscope suggest?

Last, but hardly least: how fascinating to note that as Venus (women) demanded prominence as it hit the Aries Point late last week, the outrageous plight of the hundreds of kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls is also demanding the world’s attention. They were kidnapped on April 14th, the day Pluto, Lord of the Underworld, turned retrograde…which instantly made me think of the Greek myth of Persephone, though the abductors in this modern horror story are hardly motivated by love. More like yet another Cardinal Grand Cross/Uranus-Pluto square “moment of truth” (as noted in a small number of outraged posts on Facebook), which is that the world will immediately commit millions of dollars and man hours to finding a missing Malaysian plane with presumably dead passengers, but when it comes to finding a slightly greater number of poor African schoolgirls who are likely very much alive and in danger, the response is less than enthusiastic.

Why is that?

And seriously, what DOES your horoscope suggest, in light of these intense planetary patterns? Aren’t you just a wee bit curious? Consider booking a personal astro-logical consultation — I guarantee you’ll find our discussion enlightening and helpful.

Astro-logical Forecast for Friday 5/2/2014 & the Weekend: Mind the Void; Venus in Aries; Home Sweet Home


Lucky you if you started the weekend early, as the chatty Gemini Moon has been wandering aimlessly (void of course) since 7:32PM ET on Thursday. It won’t enter Cancer until 2:13AM ET, affording you the chance to take a nice long CHILL. Stick to routine tasks and roll with whatever twists come up in your efforts to more forward in a straight line.

A Gemini Moon needs to talk. Communication today may skew toward the critical/pessimistic side as the day moves into night. If so, mind the VOID and do not make a mountain out of a molehill over some perceived insensitive slight. Why do I say this? Because at 8:56PM ET, mental Mercury will be opposed by stern, “wet blanket” Saturn, suggesting a need for heaviness in thoughts and communication.

Also of note: Venus, which refers to love, social expression, women and money, leaves soulful Pisces and charges into Aries like a bat out of hell — at 9:21PM ET. Issues of affection and feelings of worth are likely to carry an extra bit of prominence for the next couple of days. Venus will remain in Aries until the end of the month, flirting with everything in its path to prove it is desirable. If you’re an Aries, you may be feeling pretty popular for the next few weeks. Enjoy.

On Saturday and Sunday, the Cancer Moon seeks to fulfill its need for emotional security.  What can you do to feather your nest and otherwise enjoy the comforts of home and family? Tap into some undiscovered resources, courtesy of a connection between the earthy Taurus Sun and potent Pluto, exact at 8:34PM ET.  Your Saturday night date may be quite energetic, for better or for worse, given a challenge between action hero Mars and the reactive, sensitive Moon at 11:17PM ET. Could be some shake ups and power plays in the wee hours, as the Moon makes contact with the rest of the players in last week’s Cardinal Grand Cross drama.

Whatever turbulence and/or passion rolls in overnight likely subsides by Sunday morning. That day begins on an optimistic note, courtesy of expansive Jupiter…and is fueled by a constructive influence courtesy of disciplined Saturn. Feather nest. Fulfill emotional security needs. Home-cooked meal. Call Mom. Hang with family. Watch weepy movie on Netflix. Heads up that the Moon will be VOID on Monday from 4:46AM ET until 1:56PM ET, suggesting a slow start to the work week. You can sleep in late and probably get away with it.


How was your week? Supercharged? Overloaded? I’m getting emails from people who do not read my forecast (but know that I am Aware of Certain Things), wondering what’s going on, as circuits both literal and figurative are shorting out around them. Just the kind of release of bottlenecked energy you could expect from Monday’s especially lush New Moon in combination with the “make it or break it” drive of last week’s Cardinal Grand Cross, a.k.a. quite possibly the defining moment of truth of the 21st Century, for those who are actually paying attention.

I have a ton of news to write about, and I will post again before the weekend is over. Meanwhile, if you are wondering how these supercharged patterns are impacting your horoscope (and what you can do to maximize positive potential), I encourage you to schedule a personal consultation. There’s so much more to your horoscope than your Sun Sign…
