Astro-logical Forecast for Friday 8/16 & the Weekend: Venus in Libra

Moon is still in Sagittarius, sign of the (opinionated) philosopher-clown. How righteous can you be while still expanding your horizons? Take care of the serious stuff by 1:32PM today; after that, the Moon will be void until 11:25PM ET, suggesting a very happy Happy Hour to reward you for whatever twists and detours you experienced up until the close of your business day.

Moon enters “make it happen” Capricorn at 11:25PM ET, making Saturday an excellent day for taking care of practical chores around the house. Note the potential for the usual upsets around 12pm ET to 9PM ET, when the enterprising Moon will be disrupted by its weekly clash with the ongoing Uranus-Pluto square.

On Sunday, be very mindful of the potential for a nasty clash of wills around 2:26PM ET, as the Moon is opposed by aggressive Mars, seeking to defend its piece of turf. Chill, chill, chill…do not turn this molehill into a mountain! Moon will be void for the rest of the day, entering the next sign — Aquarius — just after midnight on Monday. No shopping sprees during the Moon void, if you please.

The most significant planetary event today (Friday) is Venus (women, art, money, beauty, social expression) leaving prissy Virgo for Libra, one of the signs it rules, at 11:36AM ET. Look for headlines involving these themes.  Oh happy day, as social graces, peace and harmony once more become fashionable — at least until September 11th. Beautifying your home? Doing anything artistic or cosmetic? Working out kinks in a relationship? Initiating a project that requires great diplomacy? Great! Venus in Libra is happy to accommodate these goals.

Regarding yesterday’s story about Bette Midler’s opinionated Tweets about Larry Summers: it seems some were mystified. I suspect this is because they did not read the op-ed about said Tweets — here it is again.  Point of the story was this: Summers has quite a reputation for a certain intensity and roughness of style, and we would thus expect to see certain patterns in the horoscope that would reflect these traits. The patterns we would expect to see are absolutely, totally there. Astrology is amazing!  Summers is a Sagittarius with a heavy dose of Scorpio, and so is Ms. Midler. Fascinating that Summers would be the subject of her Tweets…and that we would be talking about this story on a day with Moon in opinionated Sagittarius. Got that?

Astro-logical Forecast for Friday 9/24/2010 and the Weekend

Reports from the field confirm that this was indeed a particularly intense, proactive Full Moon, just as anticipated. I’m hearing stories of explosive confrontations (ego-based), sudden crises in a doctor’s office and an overall busier-than-business as usual mood of the day. Also hearing stories of deals coming close to fruition — especially speculative proposals backed by an enthusiastic and innovative sales pitch — and all of this fits within the realm of possibility suggested by the planets this week.

Today the Moon is still in me-me-me Aries, suggesting abundant enthusiasm and pioneering strategies, on the one hand — and the possibility for more ego spats if someone feels they are not being Recognized. TGIF! While the Moon (emotional response) is not being buffeted around like tumbleweed today, we are approaching a challenge between ruthless Pluto and the Sun, exact Saturday at 8:24PM NY. Already we are seeing in the headlines more revelations of corruption in hallowed institutions, like GMAC admitting that it signed off on thousands of foreclosures without actually reading any of the files, despite the fact that it was legally obligated to do so. And then there are health “insurers”, scrambling as best they can to put their bottom line first, no matter what (which, for the record,  they are legally obligated to do), with endearing strategies like eliminating health insurance policies for children. Ruthless! And — what’s this? Minutes ago, this headline in the New York Times: “Hidden Under Tax-Exempt Cloak, Political Dollars Flow”. Well, thanks to Pluto moving through Capricorn, they’re not hidden anymore ; )

Saturday the Moon is Void from 9:12AM – 4:17PM NY — so consider yourself advised to avoid impulse shopping during this time period. Odds are you don’t really need it — and later you’ll wonder why you bought it. The key word here is “impulse”. If it’s something you’ve already scoped out, planned to purchase — and are just waiting for the weekend to pick it up, that’s another story. You may find the day better spent catching up on sleep, exercising, meditating or just wandering around and seeing where the day takes you. Let me know if you encounter any twists.

Moon moves into sensual Taurus at 4:17PM NY for the rest of the weekend, making dynamic connections to both Mars (action) and Venus (social expression), suggesting a Saturday and Sunday well-spent indulging in pleasures of the senses, especially with a significant other if you’ve got one hanging around. Even if you’re flying solo, the weekend can be delightful.
