I glanced briefly at the horoscopes of Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger on May 10th, noting current patterns in their horoscopes suggesting bewilderment (possible deception) and upsets for Maria, and bewilderment/deception, upsets and “change or die” influences from ruthless Pluto, in the case of Arnold. Would it surprise you to know that disruptive Uranus in Arnold’s chart is making a tough challenge to the Moon (emotions, driving force of the horoscope), much like the challenge Uranus is making in the chart on the another man who’s making headlines, Dominique Strauss-Kahn? And would it surprise you to note that ruthless Pluto, which rules the areas of the chart related to love affairs and children for both men, is also making strong statements in their horoscopes right now? Similar patterns reflecting similar life events.
An astrologer could have anticipated these times for both men well in advance. “Governor Schwarzenegger, patterns in your horoscope suggest the potential for emotional upsets, affecting your image and likely involving women and creative affairs. Why does your horoscope suggest that things may not be quite as they seem in your home life?” We could have also asked him about an intensely emotional time in 2000, coupled with a sense of “ego wipeout” (astrologer Noel Tyl’s term for a challenging aspect from nebulous Neptune), perhaps affecting his sense of self-worth, that could have lasted from 2000-2001. And we would definitely asked him about the major upheaval (likely as a result of acting as if he could do whatever he liked and get away with it), that would have occurred during the summer of 1997 (it is reported that the child he fathered out-of-wedlock is around 14 years old). Planets at work here again: rebel Uranus and ruthless Pluto.Wouldn’t you like to know if such forces might be at work in your horoscope one day?
Meanwhile, Anne Sinclair, the wife of Strauss-Kahn, is standing by her man http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/05/17/us-strausskahn-wife-idUSTRE74G63Y20110517 She doesn’t believe the allegations against him for a minute. And of course he is presumed innocent until proven otherwise. But before I looked at her horoscope, I expected to see a planetary pattern suggesting “rose-colored glasses”. And yes, it’s there. Nebulous Neptune runs wild in the chart, suggesting that ideals can run away with the persona. Astrology buffs would be interested to note a hook-up between Mercury (mind), unconventional Uranus and Venus (social expression), which also suggests a case of idealism. Oh, but what glamor, power and talent with the written word. That’s in her horoscope, too.
Only one aspect of note on Wednesday: a constructive, sobering connection between Moon in Sagittarius and Saturn, planet of necessary controls. That should help you give practical form to your big ideas. Ship it today or Friday, because the Moon will be void from 10:17 AM NY – 4:16PM NY. Not that Thursday won’t be productive. Watch the headlines for more revelations from underground, as you dig up your own dirt and put a strategy into action.
