Moon in dreamy Pisces goes void of course at 10:34AM ET, on a supportive connection to expansive Jupiter (the cosmic sugar daddy). This sets a jolly tone to the brainstorming potential of the next 25 and a half hours. If you are new to this forecast and you are not familiar with the term “void of course Moon”, read the forecast posted on February 10, 2012 for a detailed explanation http://www.graceastrology.com/2012/02/10/
Briefly, a Moon void is an ideal time to let your mind and body take a break. Efforts to move in a straight line are often thwarted by unexpected twists…some of which act like they are huge crises when in fact they are not. Moon voids are not considered to be favorable for doing anything you hope will be of consequence, such as signing a contract or launching a company. Be prepared to roll with any punches that come your way — and just enjoy going with the flow, especially with this Moon in watery Pisces, which needs to work with intangibles: music, spirit, feelings, flickering images — you get the idea.
Speaking of music, a reader advised me that the cut from the Diva soundtrack that was used to score yesterday’s feature, Henri, The Existential Cat was “Gymnopedie No.1″ by Erik Satie (born May 17, 1866 at 9AM in Honfleur, France). Did you know Satie also wrote a piece called The Dreamy Fish? How cool is that? No Pisces in Satie’s horoscope, but he did have Moon in (watery) Cancer in the 12th house, which is naturally ruled by Pisces. Even more fascinating: Moon conjunct rebel Uranus…square Mars, Midheaven (career point) and nebulous Neptune (ruler of Pisces). Satie is practically a Pisces by default. And isn’t is also interesting that Satie’s horoscope has patterns that are similar to patterns going on now? The dazzling, surreal, sublimely sexy — and/or bewildering connection between Mars and Neptune is just one of them.
Bottom line: if you need some musical inspiration today, Erik Satie will fit the bill. And I’ll wager fifty cents that Satie’s music — or the man himself — will be honored again between now and next year. Why? His Mars, Neptune and Midheaven are at 10 and 11 degrees of Aries, about to be supercharged by Pluto at 10 Capricorn and Uranus at 10 Aries. In the three years that I’ve been writing about people, countries and events making headlines, I can’t recall one that didn’t have one of those two heavy planets active in the horoscope when they were on the front page.
Meanwhile, if you enjoyed the ennui of Henri, here is a second installment. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q34z5dCmC4M And if you know the music in this episode — do tell. It’s so much fun writing for such a super-smart, creative and talented crowd. Thank you for reading this astro-logical forecast.
