“I can't thank you enough for the incredible adventure in astrology. You have that rare gift that certainly all who call themselves astrologers don't possess... you're the real deal!! It seriously blew me away that you were able to not only nail so much from my past (exact times/years certain events took place, along with situations with family, relationships and beyond) but you've already helped with my present! The answers you gave to the specific questions I asked pertaining to important career-related happenings this week have already proven true. I will look forward to an update in a year or so.”

Astro-logical Forecast for Friday & the Weekend 7/3-5/2015

Briefly…

Exact planetary patterns are light today and tomorrow, with the Moon now in Aquarius. Fitting for the U.S. as it celebrates another birthday tomorrow. It was born with an Aquarius Moon. With “liberty and justice for all…” or at least that was the idea, and how appropriate, given that humanitarian Aquarius is a cerebral sign. Get together with all of your eccentric friends and brainstorm matters of social significance. Planetary patterns among mental Mercury, Jupiter and Venus favor expansion and idealism in your thoughts and communication.

The Moon goes void for two hours on Sunday morning, entering soulful Pisces at 10:23AM ET.  A heavy square between the Moon and Saturn at 8:31AM ET may put an edge on the morning. We’ll likely see more “news from underground,” including matters of power and resources, as the nurturing Cancer Sun is opposed by Pluto on Monday at 11:36 AM ET. The announcement of BP’s $18 billion settlement for its part in the Deepwater Horizon oil rig disaster falls into that category. So does this piece about a ginormous dome of radioactive waste in the Marshall Islands that is now leaking.

Right now I’m thinking about Saturn transits, as I scan the headlines. On the plus side, Saturn suggests opportunity for an ambitious reach and/or increased executive authority. On the down side, it suggests separation, streamlining and loss — of favor, material goods and sometimes — sadly — loved ones.

Three men whose horoscopes are undergoing heavy Saturn transits are Barack Obama, Donald Trump and Joe Biden. We’ve been tracking the progress of Saturn in the President’s horoscope for years. Search the archives for the latest. In the case of Donald Trump, Saturn squaring his Ascendant (combined with other authority-seeking measurements), has coincided with a run for public office.  However, his big Moon-in-Sagittarius mouth has offended numerous business partners who have consequently severed ties.

As for the Vice-President, it was anticipated here last year that 2016 would likely be a time of expansion in his career, preceded by the heavy focus of Saturn on three planets in his horoscope this year. And in fact, it has been heavy for Biden. His son Beau passed away on May 30 at age 46. Loss. But now there is talk of the Vice-President contemplating another presidential run. Ambition.

Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders continues to gather steam, as anticipated — under pressure from Uranus and Pluto

Where is Saturn in your horoscope? Are you on the brink of an ambitious reach? Are Uranus and Pluto putting pressure on you to make a fresh start? Maybe you’re up for a major reward or promotion, courtesy of a Jupiter transit. Awesome, but here’s the thing: if you do not know that this potential is on the horizon, you might miss a valuable opportunity. I could tell you many stories about chances taken because someone knew of an upcoming transit that suggested positive results IF an effort was made. That is the benefit of knowing where you are at in planetary cycles of timing.

People ask me all the time, “how often should I consult with an astrologer”? I’d advise a check-up on your horoscope at least once a year — as often as you would make an appointment with any other healthcare practitioner. If you’re in a crisis mode, you might see an astrologer more often.

One of the Sabian Symbols for last month’s Full Moon was “a flag turning into an eagle that crows”. And here it is in the flesh, just in time for 4th of July. Here’s the full story. Thank you for reading this forecast. Have a happy 4th!

 

 

Astro-logical Forecast for Friday & Saturday 2/17-18/2012: Practical Idealism

Well the markets certainly took the enthusiasm suggested by yesterday’s  Moon in Sagittarius, along with expansive Jupiter, ruler of Sagittarius in happy contact with mental Mercury, to heart. Good news on the job front sent markets soaring — were you soaring, too?

Moon enters make-it-happen Capricorn at 12:03AM ET on Friday, needing tangible structure and results from all that optimism. So if you haven’t already taken off early for the holiday weekend (it’s Presidents Day in the US), you can anticipate a proactive day at the office, even with Mars retrograde and the Moon at the end of its monthly cycle. At the end of a busy day, an indulgent celebration is suggested by a challenge from loving Venus to that make-it-happen Moon.

The Capricorn energy continues on Saturday, making it a great day for taking care of business. Our need for practicality is augmented by an even more practical connection between disciplined Saturn and the life-giving Sun, exact at 11:02AM ET. More headlines about fairness, justice and equality will likely show up beforehand. Note the potential for rich rewards as a result of investigations, suggested by an easy connection between ruthless Pluto and mental Mercury, exact 4:23PM ET. Go ahead and dig deep; you won’t be the only one talking about life, the universe, everything — and what you found swept under that rug.

Saturday is the last day of  the Sun in humanitarian Aquarius. It’s also the day that cardinal-in-waiting Timothy Dolan (currently Archbishop of New York and also an Aquarius) gets to drop the “in-waiting” from his job title. And what a fitting day to contemplate structure and authority (suggested by strong Saturn patterns and the Capricorn Moon), along with spirit. Nebulous Neptune makes its once-a-year hook-up with the Sun on Sunday at 3:42PM ET; regular readers of this forecast know the keywords for Neptune: fantasy, transcendence, spirit, drugs, alcohol, rarefied art, music, photography, soul union, illusion, confusion — and all sorts of other intangibles. In your own personal world, the mix of Neptune’s rose-colored glasses and Saturn’s realism can make for an elevated  experience for you, too.

Timothy Dolan was born on February 6, 1950 in St. Louis, Missouri — birth time unknown. But even without a birth time, we see that horoscope has the potential to be quite a powerhouse. Dolan has the Sun in Aquarius in close connection with expansive, lucky Jupiter, also in Aquarius — and wow! that dynamic duo is challenged by ruthless Pluto, suggesting great resources and empowerment. When he enters the room, he makes his presence known (Dolan is reportedly 6’3″ and described as “a bear of a man”).  A need to be concerned with matters of spirit is no doubt suggested by nebulous Neptune (spirit) in strong contact with that Sun, Jupiter  and Pluto.

There’s also a challenge from Neptune to mental Mercury in practical, authoritative Capricorn, echoed by an easy contact to Mercury from practical, authoritative Saturn. Mercury-Saturn contacts suggest a conservative mindset, and Dolan does describe himself as a conservative. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timothy_Dolan On the flip side, however, Neptune-Mercury contacts, while inspired, also suggest the need for idealism. Isn’t that interesting? A combination of the practical and the idealistic…Saturn and Neptune…the two planets pulling focus this weekend.

Dolan has Moon in Libra, suggesting a strong need to be appreciated (which he is) and a preference for peace over conflict. It’s likely that Mars is conjunct that Libra Moon, adding great energy and drive to cerebral matters — a need to talk and debate…probably a quick temper (despite the desire for peace) that had to be managed…and also a need to be cerebral about emotions. In fact, there is likely a disconnect with personal relationships, suggested by Venus (social expression) in stubborn,  “I love you, but don’t take it personally” Aquarius…which is also retrograde. Venus retrograde is rare…and it’s a reliable signal that  relationships (especially intimate relationships with other humans) are going to be a challenge.  There’s much more that could be discussed, but suffice it to say that Timothy Dolan’s need to take a vow of celibacy, devote his life to matters of spirit and ideals, become a powerhouse within a structured organization and connect with the collective so effectively that parishioners gush, “he makes everyone feel like he’s their best friend” (an Aquarian’s dream come true  http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/02/16/soon-to-become-a-cardinal-joined-by-friends-from-home/  is a fascinating and awesome series of choices of playing the hand suggested by the horoscope. It would be interesting to see how a few of Dolan’s astrological twins played theirs.
