Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 12/9/2013: Woodrow Wilson & Leonardo DiCaprio’s Perfect Match

A sensitive, soulful Pisces Moon starts off the work week, along with First Quarter square from the gamboling/gambling Sagittarius Sun at 10:10AM ET. This suggests a challenge to whatever New Moon agenda you set last week, though there’s enough optimism offered by a harmonious connection from expansive Jupiter to give you hope of quashing whatever obnoxious fly lands in your ointment. Your brain could channel all sorts of innovation solutions today and tomorrow, courtesy of an inventive alignment between mental Mercury and rebel Uranus. Think outside the box!

Your Moon voids this week: Tuesday 1:41AM ET – 8:06AM ET; Thursday 10:37AM ET – 3:40PM ET — not bad for productivity and holiday gift shopping. Know anyone who might appreciate being gifted with a personal astro-logical consultation? I have a few gaily — yet tastefully — decorated gift certificates I would be delighted to send via snail mail or email. That “anyone” might even be you. Here’s the 411 on all the various consultations to choose from.

There’s plenty to report in the news, including ongoing upheaval in Thailand and the Ukraine — areas to watch for ever-escalating tensions at the end of the month.  More accidents and aggression pulled focus over the weekend, reflected by physical Mars at the prominent Aries Point (0 Libra, on Saturday). One accident led to a rare eruption of violence in Singapore; bad weather and careless driving led to another 50+ car pile-up — this time in Pennsylvania.  But the story I had to investigate further was Maureen Dowd’s Sunday NYT column entitled, “Woodrow Wilson, Stud Muffin”.

Really, Woodrow Wilson? Stud muffin? Yes, really — and a Pulitzer prize-winning author — A. Scott Berg — wrote a book about our 28th president that was published a few months ago. Not only that, but Leonardo DiCaprio has optioned the book. I had to investigate the planetary patterns behind these events. So here they are. Woodrow Wilson is a Capricorn — born Dec 29 1856 (here is the horoscope). If you’ve been paying any attention to my writings on the never-ending Uranus-Pluto square, you know that Capricorns born at the end of December were super-charged in 2012 and 2013. Saturn, which rules Wilson’s Capricorn Sun, is at 11 Cancer — also under the influence of Uranus and Pluto.  We’d expect Wilson to become more prominent and empowered during this time.

But Pluto and Uranus aren’t finished with Wilson’s horoscope yet. Wilson’s Ascendant is 15 degrees of Libra; his Midheaven (career status/reputation) is 17 Cancer; his Mercury is 18 Cancer…and all three points will be super-charged by Uranus-Pluto in 2015. If the film is made — and released in 2015, it should get quite a bit of attention. Let the record also show that right now, transiting Jupiter (expansion, publishing) is on Wilson’s Midheaven, suggesting public recognition/honor — and it’s been there since mid-September, when the book and movie deal hit the headline. Makes sense!

As for the “stud muffin” part, that’s easy to see — with loving Venus and horny Mars exactly conjunct in Aquarius (and square to Uranus), we could expect Wilson to have a bit of a buzz about him, unconventional relationships and a strong appreciation for friendship. Other aspects to Pluto in his horoscope suggest intense emotional engagement — even with all that “I love you, but don’t take it personally” Aquarius/Uranus emphasis.

There are other intriguing measurements in Wilson’s horoscope that suggest a strong connection with the public right now, and any students of astrology should check out the current solar arcs. They are fun, but what is going on in Leonardo DiCaprio’s horoscope is even more fun, as it reflects perfectly his connection to Woodrow Wilson! DiCaprio is a Scorpio — born 11/11/74– here is the horoscope. He has Moon at 15 Libra — exactly on Wilson’s Ascendant — this is a compelling emotional connection. Not only that, DiCaprio’s has three planets — Sun, Venus and Saturn — making an easy connection with Wilson’s Midheaven. Sweet!

Solar arcs and transits in DiCaprio’s horoscope over the next 2-4 years suggest increased public prominence and acclaim. The synchronicity with Wilson’s horoscope is faaaaaascinating –I could write more — but for now,  I’m dashing this off — and we’ll see how this film project develops over the next two years. Di Caprio should do very well, regardless.

Glad to hear so many enjoyed my thoughts on Mars in Libra — posted Friday. Thank you for your kind emails of appreciation.

Astro-logical Forecast for Sunday & Monday 2/19-20/2012: Sneak Peek at the New Moon; A Nun’s Story

Networking, friendships, being of social significance, space cadets, a cerebral/scientific approach to emotions, freedom and independence — look for these themes to pull focus for the next two and a half days. Moon enters the humanitarian sign of Aquarius at 5:28AM ET, old buddy, old pal. Deal with whatever wet blanket or serious focus that may be required around 4:22AM ET, when Moon is challenged by Saturn (I’ll deal with this one in my dreams, and you can, too).

We are in the dark side of the Moon; the New Moon in Pisces is at 5:35PM ET on Tuesday.  That’s the time to light a candle and focus on your intentions for the next lunar cycle. Meanwhile, if you’re a meditative soul — or even if you’re not — take some time to tune in before Tuesday. What does your intuition tell you? A big clue to the theme of New Moon in Pisces is the Sun’s annual hook-up with nebulous Neptune — also in Pisces —  at 3:42PM ET on Sunday, combined with an  indulgent challenge to the Moon from expansive Jupiter. Note these keywords: soulful surrender, meditate, yoga, escape,intuition, fantasy, drugs, alcohol, go with the flow, bewilderment, illusion, deception, delusion, photography, film, higher realms, oil, oceans, sacrifice, empathy. It all spills over into Monday, too — sweetened by a connection between loving Venus and the Moon at 7:28AM ET that can carry you through the whole day.

Signs of nebulous Neptune on the NY Times homepage include an op-ed about drinking and drugging http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/19/opinion/sunday/bruni-whitney-houston-and-alcohols-toll.html?hp rising oil and gas prices, the “parade of stars and fans” paying tribute to Whitney Houston; and a gem of a column by Maureen Dowd about a former Hollywood starlet who became a nun — and who will be attending the Oscars next weekend because a documentary about her called “God Is Bigger Than Elvis” has been nominated. Talk about a Sun conjunct Neptune in Pisces story! Read how Dolores Hart left Hollywood for the cloister here http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/19/opinion/sunday/dowd-where-the-boys-arent.html?hp  and here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dolores_Hart

Since we looked at Cardinal Timothy Dolan’s horoscope in the last post, I thought it would be interesting to look (briefly)  at the horoscope of this former starlet-turned-nun. Will we see similar patterns?

Dolores Hart was born October 20, 1938 (time unknown) in Chicago, IL  She’s a Libra with Moon in Virgo, suggesting a need to be discerning, exacting and perfecting. Like Cardinal Dolan, there is a connection between Jupiter and Neptune — a reliable signal of the importance of spirit. The Jupiter-Neptune connection is not as big and bold as the pattern in Cardinal Dolan’s chart, but it’s definitely there; and Neptune is still very strong in other ways. Charisma — and the potential for glamour is suggested by a hook-up between Neptune and Mars; it’s likely that Neptune is also involved with the Virgo Moon, which adds idealism and the intangible to that need to be discerning, exacting and perfecting. Also of note: Saturn, suggesting discipline, patriarchy,authority, control, structure, ambition — making a strong statement about a potential obsession with the father…which perhaps evolved into the Father…or perhaps the Mother Superior. Hmmmmmm…. Also found in Dolan’s chart and Hart’s: strong connections between the Sun and expansive, sunny, philosophical Jupiter and resourceful, empowering Pluto. Let the record show that Hart is in fact the Reverend Mother Dolores Hart and Prioress of the Abbey (since 2001) where she resides. And as Maureen Dowd and Wikipedia both note, the Reverend Mother remains a voting member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Powerful!

Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 12/8/2011: Silence is Golden

I had every intention of posting a forecast yesterday on why silence can be so beneficial during Mercury retrogrades, especially after reading Maureen Dowd’s perfectly timed op-ed on the subject. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/07/opinion/dowd-silence-is-golden.html?_r=1&partner=rssnyt&emc=rss
I hope you can all appreciate the irony of that intention.

Consider silence as a strategy today, while the Moon is still in steady, placid, often taciturn Taurus, encouraging efforts to be calm and collected. Moon goes void at 6:40PM ET, entering chatterbox Gemini at 9:52PM ET.
