The big aspect today is the third and final occurrence of a potent square between “resistance is futile” Pluto and expansive Jupiter, challenging us to examine our resources and our philosophy/group think about said resources. Are they stable and sustainable? (the question applies to our group think and our resources). This series of squares began July 24 and August 2 of 2010 (check out earlier forecasts on my website); the influence has been effect since then. Resources and/or the lack thereof, and the need for us to adapt accordingly will likely continue today, as in: (on the potential down side) food and oil prices going up, budget crunches, etc. — but look for news and/or opportunities for renewed resources, too. In other news, I expected to see Deepwater Horizon back in the headlines this week (Pluto: Deep; Jupiter: Horizon) — and it was — a study now says certain workers on the rig could have prevented the disaster, had they been in the loop: http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/02/17/us-oil-spill-causes-idUSTRE71G5NN20110217
In your own personal world, the potential for incisive perception is high today. What do your instincts tell you? Can you see clearly now? Are you writing a book about it? You could, with today’s mental focus at your disposal. What is seen clearly today will surely be talked about — with passion and perhaps a call for a “do-over”. It may be Friday, but don’t phone this day in — much can be accomplished, and you may have reason to celebrate a profound sense of transformation or renewal by happy hour.
OK, one last thing about Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin. As we’ve seen, Walker’s horoscope is formidable. Moon and Sun in Scorpio — born the day of a potent total solar eclipse — Mercury (mindset, communication) is also in Scorpio…already we’re running screaming down the hall — Scorpio does have that reputation — and add to Walker’s chart the other hardcore aspects we noted earlier this week. Who in the world would dare to pierce the inner sanctum of such a man? (you’ll love this) Would you believe the blogger who placed the prank call to Walker was born on October 31, 1978 (source:Wikipedia), and has not only Sun and Moon in Scorpio, but Mercury and Mars (conjunct) AND Venus and Uranus (also conjunct) — ALL in Scorpio! Catch an interview with Ian Murphy here http://www.mediaite.com/tv/lawrence-odonnell-interviews-the-gov-scott-walker-prank-caller-ian-murphy/ and pay close attention to Murphy’s “Scorpio stare.” (Walker has it too, and so does Sun-Moon in Scorpio gal Whoopi Goldberg). Credit nebulous Neptune, currently making a charismatic connection to Murphy’s Mars (action) and Mercury (mind), for stimulating his imagination and giving him the art of guile.
Will write more on the weekend later. Stay tuned…
