…and may the luck of the Irish be with all of us on this St. Patrick’s Day. Only one exact aspect today: Moon in dramatic Leo makes a potentially befuddling challenge to nebulous Neptune at 3:59 PM EDT, before going void for an hour. Then Moon enters Virgo, where it be working overtime in certain circles to make things right, to organize, tend to details and make things right.
Here’s an interesting color to this day: Mars, planet of action, is running wild in the sign of Pisces, a placement Noel Tyl has described as being like a hot poker doused in water. There’s plenty of steam, but not much is moving in a direct line, as the energy of Mars prefers. Might this explain why some may be feeling a bit diffused and/or all over the place?
And in case you haven’t heard, I’ll be back on the air this Thursday at 9PM PDT — guesting on “Get Real” with Shaman Durek — we’ll be talking astrology, taking calls and all kinds of fun stuff — hope you can tune in — I’m thrilled by the response to last week’s show! http://www.indie1031.com/include.php?pageid=%2Fshows%2Fget-real.asp
After the Moon void ended at 3:33 PM EDT yesterday, you may have noted a decidedly fiery shift in mood, as Moon entered Leo, a sign that needs to loved and adored (if you’re involved with someone with Moon in Leo, do tell them how fabulous they are several times a day — that’s your key to making that relationship a success).
We also had an enthusiastic, inspirational connection between Mercury (mind) and Jupiter (expansion) in pioneering Aries, perhaps leading us to think big, optimistic thoughts — never mind those pesky details.Today we have more potential for exuberance in your own personal world — hopefully of the constructive kind, not the irrational. Other than the potential for encounters with certain Leonine drama queens, the aspects today are pretty darn positive.
Meanwhile, in Japan… As is often the case with the charts of nations, there are several horoscopes in use; the one for modern Japan preferred by my mentor is November 3, 1946 at 8:30 AM in Tokyo –this is the horoscope for the official birth of the Constitution. It’s interesting to see status-quo disrupting Uranus making an exact connection to the this chart’s Sun/Moon midpoint (for civilians: this is an especially sensitive point in a horoscope, as advanced students of astrology will appreciate) at 29 Pisces; note that 29 Pisces is in a challenging square to that potent lunar eclipse at 29 Gemini-29 Sagittarius on the 2010 Winter Solstice (12/21/2010 — if you want to review that forecast). Note that 29 Pisces will be triggered again by the Full Moon on the 19th; now is a good time to send calm, healing thoughts across the Pacific — if you happen to believe that such thoughts can be beneficial.
It would also be a reeaalllllly good time for the whole planet to get serious about safe, sustainable energy resources and our (rusting, rotting) infrastructure, as suggested by current challenges to Pluto (radiation, resources underground) in Capricorn (government institutions). 2012-2015 is just around the corner… …and hey! so is Spring! : )

The big news in the astrological world is the planet Uranus moving into Aries at 7:52PM EST today. Uranus is the shock to the system, the disruption to the status quo, genetic mutations, genius, innovation, technology…and yes, earthquakes are also connected to Uranus. And the last degree of Pisces/first degree of Aries is a highly sensitive, proactive placement (“the Aries Point) that tends to bring prominence to whatever planet is sitting on it. And with all the build-up and buzz in the astrological community about this erratic planet completing an 84 year cycle and being “born again”, I’m not surprised to see a “megaquake” and a tsunami dominating the headlines today (“Huge Quake Trigger Tsunami Off Japan’s Coast”, for those living under a rock http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/12/world/asia/12japan.html?ref=global-home Stunned and humbled by its magnitude, yes. But surprised — no.
It’s been a while since I’ve mentioned this, but now would be an excellent time to check the supplies in the emergency kits I know you keep in your home, office and in your car. You do have these kits handy, don’t you? First aid, fresh water and batteries, duct tape — those sorts of things. And don’t say “it can’t happen here” – in the past several months we’ve had tornadoes in Queens and blizzards in Atlanta. We live in exciting times –please plan accordingly.
Expect an absolute buzz of information today. Moon is in chatty Gemini, determined to keep us informed. If it’s too much for your system, eat some potatoes. That’s actually an old wives’ remedy for staying grounded during an eclipse, but it can’t hurt here. Saturday the Gemini vibe continues, introducing the first challenge to your New Moon agenda, which involves devising a strategy for a sense of belonging — and determining exactly to whom and to where.
Sunday may be emotionally challenging. Moon will be in home security-loving Cancer as of 10:29AM EST, after a measly 75 minute void/time out. It gets a jolt from Uranus in the AM and a potentially moody bastard power play from Pluto in the late evening hours…and in between that we’ll see a challenge to Mercury (mind, communication, travel) in impulsive, feisty Aries from ruthless, cut-to-the-quick Pluto. I urge you to count to ten before you let loose with words that can’t be taken back. Watch for scenarios of words gone wild in the headlines, as well as more revelations on corruption in the system, “my way or the highway” stances and/or cuts straight to the core. Can we all see clearly now?
Thanks to all who listened to “Get Real” with Shaman Durek on Indie 103.1 last night. I’m thrilled to be invited back on the show next Thursday — it’s so much fun taking calls and talking about astrology! That means I’ll be extending my stay in Los Angeles for a few more days. If you’d like to book an in-person consultation in LA, operators are standing by. I’ll post a link to last night’s broadcast shortly : )
Slow start to the morning on the West Coast — really weird dreams — or maybe a strange twist in your daily commute? Moon is void from 8:04 – 9:52AM PST, a time when you might do something flaky like pour water through your coffee maker — without adding actual coffee. That’s one potential during a Moon void, and I have the data to prove it. The “weird dream” part is suggested by a contact to Moon from nebulous Neptune. East Coast residents, convert the time to EST and schedule your lunch break accordingly.
No aspects exact today, except the aforementioned contact between Moon and Neptune in the AM. After the void, Moon enters Taurus at 9:52AM PST/12:52PM EST, making it a great day to begin building a stable structure for your fabulous New Moon ideas. And I’m not joking about the “fabulous” part — flashes of brilliance are favored all week along.
Meanwhile, that bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzing sound you’re hearing — the one suggesting circuits overloading, breaking free of chains, keeping you up at night and demanding your attention — is eccentric, electric, innovative Uranus moving through the very last degree of the sign Pisces — the very end of the zodiac — about to be born again in Aries on March 11th. How might that intensity manifest in the headlines? Ask your friends born around March 19-20, June 20-21st, September 20-21st and January 19-20 if they’re having any intense, liberating upsets in their lives and take notes. I’ll be talking more about this significant cosmic shift Thursday, March 10th at 9PM PST on the internet radio program “Get Real” with Shaman Durek — you can tune in here: http://www.indie1031.com/include.php?pageid=%2Fshows%2Fget-real.asp It’s great to be back in Los Angeles!
