Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 7/18/2011: Casey Anthony

The best thing I can say about today is that it offers exceptional creative potential. Moon moves into dreamy Pisces at  1:13AM ET and hooks up with nebulous — and yet often visionary — Neptune shortly thereafter. Note where your dreams take you. There could be a fine line between visionary and fantasy/delusion today, suggested by an obsessive connection between Mercury (mind, communication) and Neptune. What did they know and when did they know it — and how long will they deny it until the truth finally comes out? Or…how long will they cling to belief in a fairy tale, until reality smacks them out of their rose-colored confection?

Meanwhile another obsessive connection — between ruthless Pluto and aggressive Mars — suggests the potential for power plays, overt force (and force of will) and perhaps an explosion or two. That’s great for the planet and your own personal world if you’re wearing a white hat; perhaps not so great (for the rest of us) if you’re up to no good. Planetary patterns suggest potential resources; humans decide what to do with them.

Sun (life force) and Venus (social expression) are both in emotional/material security-needing Cancer. Mars (energy applied) is in multi-tasking, cerebral Gemini. Saturn (necessary controls) is in striving-to-be fair and balanced Libra. All four planets are “running wild” today, competing for and demanding attention. Ruthless Pluto and disruptive Uranus are squaring off, determined to tear down a facade or institution somewhere (look no further than today’s headlines — and remember that this aspect is in effect for the next few years).  And yet…today’s Moon in soulful Pisces suggests a need for sensitivity and empathy, augmented by deep insight and enthusiasm. And Pisces is very adaptable — and in fact most humans are adaptable, which is why Los Angeles didn’t fall apart during  the dreaded “Carmaggeddon” over the weekend. Which makes a strong case for not freaking out too much over the changes happening now and in the near future. Which brings me back to the exceptional creative potential suggested by today’s planetary patterns. The only natural break (in the form of a Moon void) comes this Wednesday AM on the East Coast and Friday PM on the West Coast. Arise, go forth and be creative — and of consequence.

Meanwhile, how about that “surprise upset” in yesterday’s Women’s World Cup between the US and Japan http://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/18/sports/soccer/japan-battles-back-to-win-womens-world-cup.html?_r=1&hp  And the Moon was void of course all day, which generally favors the underdog. Coincidence or conspiracy?

Last but not least, a reader asked for commentary on Casey Anthony’s horoscope. Birth data: March 19, 1986 in Warren, OH time (unconfirmed source) 3:10PM.  Sun in Pisces, Moon in Cancer. I did not closely follow this case, so can’t comment on the time line of events or other details. But even without an exact birth time, one thing that strikes me about this horoscope is the strong potential for prominence/fame. Specifically, this horoscope is likely to be known for idealism (vision or fantasy/delusion), charisma (seductive glamor, personal magnetism or a web of deception), creativity and/or sensitivity or a high self-regard.

Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 1/6/2011: New Congress, New Speaker

We haven’t had an exact aspect to the Moon since  7:15AM NY yesterday, and we won’t have another until 7:59PM tonight.  What we do have is a approaching challenge to Sun (the energy of the day) from restrictive Saturn in “hey! that’s not fair!!” or “mind your manners!” Libra, exact on Friday AM at 9:09 NY time. Feeling any tension and frustration? Keep on trucking! You can do it!

Without exact aspects, planets can “run wild” in a horoscope. When Moon in Aquarius runs wild, as it was for most of yesterday and most of today, you end up with an overwhelming need to be of social significance and innovative – or at least be seen that way. Mars, symbolizing the our drive to apply energy/take action is also running wild in the “make it happen” sign of Capricorn. And so is Pluto, which wrote the book on ruthless power mavens. That’s the blueprint of the energy that marks the start of the 112th Congress. Fascinating! And it took our new House majority less than half a day to strip six delegates (who I’m quite sure represent people who pay US taxes) of certain voting rights http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/01/05/house-gop-delegate-voting-rights_n_804906.html Ruthless power running wild? Readers, what do you think?

Our new Speaker of the House, John Boehner, born 11/17/1949 in Reading, OH is likely keenly aware of power, being a Scorpio ruled by the aforementioned Pluto. I don’t know what time he was born, but even so, his horoscope has a few notable patterns. First is a likely strong Moon-Neptune connection in socially-oriented Libra. Understand that the Moon defines the reigning need of the individual. And Neptune tends to dissolve whatever it touches — sometimes into puddles. Neptune can be vision, idealism, dreams, fantasy, escapism, drugs, alcohol, spirituality; it can be sublimely inspirational, too and it works well in the charts of healers, artists, con artists and other visionaries.

A person with Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Libra might assume that everyone else thinks the way he does, be of great personal conviction and might need others to appreciate him so much that he gets elected Speaker of the House. Add in that Neptune energy and you have a man who might need to be a visionary. But what kind of vision?  Hmmm. “The American Dream?” Another notable pattern specific to Boehner’s  horoscope is Uranus, symbolizing an intensity in areas of independence, rebellion, challenging the status quo, freedom, innovation — running wild! And right now, all that intensity is being pushed into prominence and empowered by transiting Pluto opposing that Uranus — and has been since early  2010.  Finally, we note a focused, disciplined and potentially militaristic connection between Mars and Saturn in Virgo, a sign which needs to always always be correct. Compromise, anyone?

But hey, look at it this way: you don’t have to be the 112th Congress to take advantage of the potential for a power grab in your favor. It’s Thursday. Seize the day!
