Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday 12/14/2011: More Fun, With or Without Newt Gingrich

There are an awful lot of generals on the field today, each clamoring for command and attention. Four planets: ruthless Pluto, action-oriented Mars, Sun in rambling, gamboling Sagittarius and the Moon in regal, playful Leo — are running wild~!  Power plays, news from underground, high-flying opinions and a need for adoration and celebration are all suggested. Watch the headlines…

As your brain adjusts to the forward motion of Mercury (mind, travel), take it slow and be patient. Better you should walk around with a big, sunny smile on your face than hurl royal insults at the hapless serf who gets in your way. Gaining traction and cooperative focus may be easier tomorrow, when the Moon in Leo is more engaged with the rest of the kids in the sandbox, which is why whatever praise you can give to others today will be much appreciated  — and perhaps even returned in kind. Be creative and have fun!

Oh — and if you’re feeling generous this holiday season, why not give that special someone a gift certificate for a personal astro-logical consultation with yours truly. I guarantee it will be all about them and they won’t be able to thank you enough.

In other news, some may be experiencing the weird compulsiveness suggested by an obsessive connection among nebulous Neptune and rebel Uranus and Mars (the warrior planet), especially journalists who can’t stop writing and talking about Newt Gingrich  here  http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/14/opinion/dowd-honeymoons-in-space.html?hp … and here  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/12/13/newt-gingrich-palestinians-palestine-yasser-arafat_n_1146132.html   and here  http://thinkprogress.org/lgbt/2011/12/12/387714/gingrich-reaffirms-opposition-to-marriage-equality-affirms-family-leaders-anti-gay-pledge/  The weird, charismatic, larger-than-life energy found in current planetary patterns can also be seen in patterns in the horoscope of Mr. Newt. Coincidence or conspiracy?

Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday 5/17/2011: Dominique Strauss-Kahn

Yesterday a reader asked about the horoscope of Dominique Strauss-Kahn, managing director of the International Monetary Fund and once thought to be a serious contender in the next French presidential election. Strauss-Kahn, as much of the free world now knows, was arrested over the weekend (pulled off an Air France jet that was just about to depart JFK) and accused of sexually assaulting a maid in his $3000/night  Sofitel hotel suite. He is being held without bail in a New York City jail.

Regular readers of this forecast know that if someone is in the headlines, there is something going on in the horoscope. What can we expect to see in this one? First, an aspect suggesting PROMINENCE, right? Hmm…that’s probably ruthless Pluto. Second, we might expect to see an aspect that suggests a disruption of the status quo. OK, readers, what might that be? Rebel Uranus, perhaps?

Strauss-Kahn was born April 25, 1949 at 11:10AM in Neuilly sur Seine. What do we see? Would you believe rebel Uranus making an exact connection to DSK’s Moon in me-me-me Aries, suggesting emotional excitement, impulsive, self-indulgent actions. Astrologer Grant Lewi wrote of this aspect over 70 years ago: “this is an eye-opener for the soul, and whatever events come under it will teach you some very important things about yourself and your ideals.” Would you also believe we find ruthless Pluto making a challenging connection to DSK’s Midheaven (which refers to his status in the community), which suggests major life adjustments and changes in perspective .

Other aspects of note: an expansive challenge to DSK’s Sun from Jupiter, no doubt adding to the grand sense of entitlement already suggested by DSK’s Leo Ascendant. We saw a similar relationship between Sun and Jupiter in the horoscope of Raj Rajaratanam. And look — there’s also an obsessive connection between nebulous Neptune and aggressive Mars, which can often suggest inspiration, charisma and/or delusion about one’s own magnetism; we saw this same obsessive/compulsive aspect in the horoscope of Newt Gingrich. Fascinating, eh? In France, there have been reports of an alibi. Stay tuned…

Meanwhile, falling into the “revelations and creative spin” category of headlines anticipated this week, we note the following as of yesterday:  “Japanese Officials Ignored or Concealed Dangers” of seismic activity to nuclear power plants http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/17/world/asia/17japan.html?hp; “Orchestras On Tour: Names Strike a False Note” (e.g., the Dublin Orchestra is actually from Bulgaria) http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/17/arts/music/some-foreign-orchestras-offer-misleading-credentials.html?hp; and “Mortgage Lenders Accused of Fraud” http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/05/16/foreclosure-fraud-audit-false-claims-act_n_862686.html  And it’s not even Tuesday.

Full Moon in Scorpio at 7:09AM EST suggests more than the usual emotional intensity. What do you desire? Fish or cut bait. Seriously. You can mull that over for a few hours…until 1:22PM EST while the Moon is void of course, suggesting a twist to your morning routine. You can expect to hear a number of opinions on what should go and what should stay, courtesy of Moon in high-flying Sagittarius, as the day progresses. You may even have a few opinions of your own.
