Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 5/4/2015: Sneak Peek at the Week; Full Moon Fallout

Good Morning!

Over the weekend I trust you felt only the positive potential of the expansive contact between the Taurus Sun and Jupiter in Leo, exact this AM at 5:02 ET. Y’know, sunny, optimistic, playful and pleasurable.  Combined with the serious focus of Sunday’s efficient Mercury-Saturn opposition, and you might have woken up yesterday with a brilliant plan for streamlining the U.S. tax code. I know I did, along with more than a few ideas for expanding this website. Very exciting stuff.

In the news so far, my favorite headline expressing the potential of this morning’s planetary patterns is this: “Justices’ Opinions Grow in Size (Jupiter Square Sun), Accessibility & Testiness (Mercury opposed by Saturn)”. The first line of that article? “The Supreme Court seems to be in a foul mood”. Well what would you expect in the fallout of a Full Moon in oftentimes intense Scorpio?

Put the Scorpio Moon to good use. It’s strategically-minded. Use that potential, along with the lift of the Sun-Jupiter connection, to carry you through the business day. Actions involving consolidation of resources and power, for better or for worse, are favored, given an easy flow between the Sun and Pluto. Be advised, however, that the Moon goes void on a stubborn face-off with Mars at 9:49PM ET — raising the potential for clashes of will. Chill tonight; the Moon enters high-flying Sagittarius Tuesday at 7:13AM ET.

Other than a 17-minute Moon void on Thursday (blink and you’ll miss it), there are no cosmic chill periods that might delay your efforts to move forward in a straight line. Venus enters Cancer on Thursday night, suggesting women, nurturing and social expression will be prominent. Barack Obama has Venus at 1 Cancer, so we may hear some news on those subjects related to him. Thursday is also when we’ll be feeling the dreamy vision and/or bewilderment of a challenge between Mercury and nebulous Neptune, exact on Saturday at 12:09PM ET. Usually we go from dreams to reality. This week, it’s the other way around.

FYI, Mercury turns direct on May 18th. BACK UP YOUR COMPUTERS NOW.

And now, the news.

What a disruption of the status quo in Baltimore on Friday, as the six police officers who arrested Freddie Gray on April 12th now face charges related to that homicide. Now that Uranus and Pluto are more than halfway through their respective signs (and in the aftermath of their 33-month long square), we will likely see more efforts to curtail abuses of power. I did think the event chart for Mr. Gray’s arrest — 8:38AM — was a compelling suggestion of foul play when I looked at it several weeks ago.

Now Baltimore’s state attorney — Marilyn Mosby — is being called a hero. We don’t have a birth time for Ms. Mosby, though her date of birth is listed as January 22, 1980. She’s an idealistic, humanitarian Aquarius with Moon in me-me-me Aries. An Aries Moon typically does not wait to take the lead on an inspiring crusade (often for the underdog). Three planets in Virgo (Mars, Jupiter & Saturn) add to a need to do what’s right.

Right now Ms.  Mosby is enjoying a pleasant alignment between the Sun and Venus (no wonder she’s so popular). Another pattern between Mars and Pluto suggests she will have quite a battle on her hands next year. Coincidence or conspiracy?

You know who else has Moon in Aries (other than Brian Williams, Dominique Strauss-Kahn & Bill O’Reilly)? Bernie Sanders, the Senator from Vermont, who announced over the weekend that he is running for president — as a Democrat. He wasted no time making a statement which is a perfect reflection of  current planetary patterns:

“We need a political revolution in this country involving millions of people who are prepared to stand up and say enough is enough, and I want to lead that.”

Sen. Sanders’ revolutionary drive is not likely to abate over the next 18 months; quite the contrary. I wish we had an exact birth time. He’s a Virgo with two highly effective planets —  Venus in Libra and Mars in Aries, both of which will be supercharged by rebel Uranus through 2016. It’s probable that his Aries Moon is being supercharged now, too. What’s certain is that his natal conjunction between Uranus and Saturn is currently being triggered by Saturn, suggesting a potential ambitious reach on his innate need for alignment between the “old guard” and the “avant garde”. Solar arcs among Sun, Mercury (communication) and Saturn also reflect Senator Sanders’ timing.

Update: the last time we checked in on Bill Cosby’s horoscope, we anticipated a change of status/shock to the system at the end of May/June, when transiting Uranus will challenge his 19 degree Cancer Sun and 20 degree Aries Ascendant. It was thus interesting to note that three more women came forward with allegations of being drugged and sexually assaulted. What’s different about this latest batch is that one of the incidents allegedly took place in New Jersey, which has no statute of limitations on sexual assault. Let’s see how the summer progresses…

Last, but not least, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announced the birth of their daughter on Saturday at 8:34AM in London. The new princess has a Cancer Ascendant, along with her Taurus Sun and Moon in Libra, in case you needed to know. She was just named Charlotte — same as Chelsea Clinton’s daughter. “Charlotte” means, according to different sources, “manly” or “freeman”.

You now know everything you need to know to take on the world today — except, perhaps —  what’s going on in your own unique horoscope. I can help with that. Here’s the 411 on personal consultations.

Astro-logical Forecast for Sunday 5/5/2013: Serious Focus & Flow

I hope you’re enjoying the dreamy sensitivity of the weekend’s Moon in Pisces, colored by the rosy glow of mental Mercury in touch with nebulous Neptune (ruler of Pisces). Music, spiritual pursuits, healing and other idealistic escapes are favored, experienced with the depth and power of an easy connection (a trine) between Mars (action) in earthy Taurus and regenerating Pluto in earthy Capricorn. The Mars-Pluto trine follows on the heels of Wednesday’s Sun-Pluto trine, another measurement suggesting an abundance or easy flow of resources in the material plane.

Take the magical thinking potential of Mercury-Neptune,  mix it with all that Sun-Mars-Pluto empowered action/resource; add in expansive, optimistic Jupiter running wild in the middle of airy Gemini, and it appears we have a recipe for more all-time highs in the markets last week. Even more fascinating: the Jupiter/Pluto midpoint — a highly reliable suggestion of wealth — has been at the Aries Point for weeks. Avid readers of this forecast know that any astrological measurement configured with the Aries Point (0 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn) needs to demand prominence/fame. So it’s no surprise to see so many stories of outrageous fortune dominating headlines recently, like this one about trillions of dollars stashed offshore — or this one presenting yet another study about the relationship between political clout and wealth.

Energy resources have also been making headlines. Credit the Uranus (aeronautics) – Pluto (power) square reflecting the test flight of a solar-powered airplane –way to reinvent the wheel — and it’s going rather well. U.S. oil production is at levels not seen in 30 years — and hey, soon those fossil fuels will be flowing under a new pipeline slated to run right through the heart of New York City’s West Village, installed by a company which reportedly has a rather dicey safety record — huzzah! But wait, there’s more. Helium was a hot (air) topic this week, as the always-witty Gail Collins informs us — did you know we’re facing a shortage & that this is important?

Also in the headlines: a mind-bending physics bulletin I won’t pretend to fully understand, but it does reflect the disruptive power of the Uranus-Pluto square to change our perspective of the world as we know it: “Time Crystals Could Upend Physicists’ Theory of Time”.

Well, I promised you a lot of news, and I haven’t even talked about the forecast for today, Sunday, which began with a sobering opposition to mental Mercury (transportation) from stern Saturn at 7:13AM ET. This is the serious focus referred to in the forecast headline. What’s at the top of the newsfeed as I type? A story about a limousine catching fire in Northern California, killing five passengers. Sobering, indeed — and naturally I looked at the chart for the time of the fire (10pm in San Mateo, California), fully expecting to see a challenging aspect on the angles. Why? Because planets on the angles seem to have a greater need for expression, and in the case of this freak accident we immediately see the Uranus-Pluto square on the angles of the chart, suggesting a sudden, freakish, potent and potentially explosive quality to the event.

If you’re out and about running important tasks today, get them done before the Moon goes void at 12PM ET. Moon will coast through the rest of Pisces until 9:03PM ET, when it enters fiery Aries, immediately shifting the “go with the flow” energy to one of action! now! andale (and a happy Cinco de Mayo to you, too). Use the energy of the void to chill and recharge. Monday will be another day to hit the ground running.
