Astro-logical Forecast for Friday 10/24/2014 & The Weekend: Paint It Rose

Put on your rose colored glasses. The Scorpio Sun and Moon suggest depth and intensity, but other patterns are positively dreamy. A dreamy intensity?

The only aspect of note on Friday is an easy connection between the Moon and Pluto at 2:15PM ET, offering a healing quality to whatever deep subjects may be broached. The rest of the day and night benefit from the potential magnetism of the Sun and Venus meeting up at 3:31AM ET on Saturday — oohlala. An expansive connection between the Moon and Jupiter at 5:44AM ET suggests indulgence; a reality check or serious focus kicks in around 12:11PM ET Saturday, when the Moon goes void until 12:40AM ET on Sunday.

No shopping sprees during the void, if you please. And be mindful running errands about town. During the void, Mercury turns direct (at 3:17PM ET), suggesting a higher probability for communication and travel snafus. Plus we’ll have action hero Mars pulling focus in high-flying Sagittarius. Why pulling focus? Because it’s at the end of Sag, about to hit 0 Capricorn on Sunday at 6:43AM ET, which regular readers know is the Aries Point. If you have planets or angles at 29 Virgo, Gemini, Pisces and Sagittarius….or 0 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, you may be feeling rather feisty, and the world will probably know it. We’re sure to see some feisty action in the headlines.

Mars functions very well in “make it happen” Capricorn. If your New Moon agenda includes building an empire, go for it from now until the first week of December. Otherwise, note your dreams Sunday morning, as the high-flying Sagittarius Moon will be challenged by nebulous Neptune at 9:33AM ET. A day with Moon in Sag is always up for  a gamble or a gambol; let your dreams inspire you to broaden your horizons.

No sleeping in for East Coasters on Monday. West Coasters, Moon goes void at 12:18PM ET with lovely connections among Venus, Sun and Neptune in the background. Oh, must we work today? On the upside, if your job involves the arts, peacemaking, philanthropy and other ways to make the world a kinder, more beautiful space, it may not feel like work at all. These lovely vibes will carry us through the following week.

And now, the news.

You will love this article, given all the planetary patterns suggesting a mood of idealism in recent days. “What If Age is Nothing But A Mindset” asks the NYT Sunday Magazine…and then it goes on to report actual studies demonstrating how this is powerfully so. Meanwhile, if you’ve been putting off the decluttering and REorganizing potential of this Mercury retrograde, a woman from Japan wants to show you how to put your life in order with great love and joy, including your sock drawers.

Last, but far from least, a famous astrologer passed away this week: Joan Quigley, who consulted with the Reagans for several years starting in 1981. She wrote a fascinating book about that experience, “What Does Joan Say?” Here is her horoscope and an interesting interview that Salon published in 2000. Ms. Quigley was a Vassar grad and a pioneering Aries.  I did not know until now that she was born on the same day as two other pioneering astrologers: Linda Goodman and Sydney Omarr. Coincidence or conspiracy? RIP.

Mercury retrogrades are excellent times to REview your life with an astrologer. Right now I’m offering a little incentive for new clients — grab it before the end of October.  Here’s the 411 on personal consultations.

Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 10/21/2010

Oh, that bewildering Neptune. And that witchy bitchy Venus retrograde in Scorpio dredging up the dreck in relationships — past and present! How else to explain Mrs. Clarence Thomas’s phone call to Professor Anita Hill on Oct 9th asking her to apologize to her husband, the alleged sexual harasser and current Supreme Court Justice. Quick glance at Mrs Thomas’s chart: immediately we see she may be prone to idealism (Sun in Pisces, ruled by Neptune, trine to Neptune), with likely obsessive tendencies resulting from stressful connections between aggressive Mars and delusional Neptune, and mental Mercury and ruthless Pluto (“sexuality, illusion, fantasy and deceit can be played out; may be driven to focus on the unknown, unconscious or subconscious; can be cunning persuasive and manipulative through use of communication and information”). Mrs. Thomas was driven (check her transits) to place a phone call to Professor Hill on a day marked by a stressful contact between Mercury (mind) and expansive Jupiter —  “grandiose thinking; opinionation and bias; driven by belief systems, religious concepts, philosophical ideology; idealism” — and Venus (women) had just gone retrograde EXACTLY on her husband’s Midheaven, which represents his public career status! Yes, nebulous Neptune is currently “hot” in all three charts: the Thomases and Professor Hill — and in the case of Clarence Thomas, we see his Sun (life force), Venus (women, social expression) and Mercury (mind) all under pressure from the Big T-Square Party, especially ruthless Pluto.  Fellow astrologers — birth data for all three posted below; we could talk for hours about these charts. Dear civilians, I’ll now move on to the moment you’ve been waiting for:

Moon is still in impulsive, start-it-yesterday Aries, inspiring you to push ahead. And push ahead you must, while the Moon is still waxing full. Note a possible clash between boundless enthusiasm and a lump of coal in the early part of the day — work through it, if you must. Note also that we are not out of the weirdness zone yet: Friday we’ll have a Full Moon and nebulous Neptune challenging aggressive Mars. Be mindful of what you put in your system over the next couple of days as your sensitivity to toxins may be higher than usual. This includes people selling snake oil. On the plus side — a charismatic performance might be within reach if it comes from an authentic source.

BIRTH DATA: Mrs. Clarence Thomas Feb 23, 1957, time unknown, likely Omaha, NE; Mr. Clarence Thomas Jun 23 1948, 9PM Pin Point, GA; Professor Anita Hill Jul 30, 1956, time unknown, Tulsa, OK  — acknowledging Ricki Reeves, author of THE QUINDECILE — all quotes above from her superb astrological text on a little-known, but extremely potent aspect
