Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 7/26/2012: When Mercury Retrograde Meets Moon Void

Moon moved into Scorpio at 10:29PM ET, after an 11-hour void. Did you feel that void? Could you go with the flow? If you enjoyed it, get ready for another one that begins at 11:38AM ET today…and ends at 1:18AM ET on Saturday. Roll with any twists or delays or spaciness that may arise, if you’re trying to move in a straight line. If you can go with the flow, this can be a creative and regenerating break. If you are new to the forecast and don’t know what a void-of-course Moon is, click here.

Moon in Scorpio can be intense. It needs knowledge for the sake of power and control. It needs to be seen as having depth and substance…sometimes only with a few chosen intimates. Scorpio has a reputation for being secretive, which others may find frustrating. One of the US presidential candidates has a Scorpio Moon, and yesterday it made the homepage of the New York Times.

Getting back to the Moon void — and the fact that Mercury is retrograde. This combination is soooooo ripe for communication snafus. Just look at two stories that hit the wires during yesterday’s Moon void/Merc retro combo: “Whoops! Wrong Flag Accompanies North Korean Names; Delays Match” (at the Olympics) and “Oops! A Typo Mars A Bill on Regulation”  (a snafu in the US House of Representatives). Please double check everything to make sure it’s spelled right, clearly understood, still open, plugged in…you get the idea. Scorpio is also known for integrity and a strong code of honor…and it can react with a vengeance if it feels the code has been violated.

Mercury retrograde is time when old friends tend to show up for an unexpected reunion…and when long-lost objects may be found, like this one. These are the positive potentials of this time — enjoy them!

Another op-ed that caught my eye yesterday reflected the futuristic vision of the innovative Uranus-Mercury trine. Called “Alone in the Void”, it also captured an ambitious reach based on a sobering reality (Moon conjunct restrictive Saturn). Often when my clients are in a phase of feeling isolated, depressed or limited, Saturn is involved. It’s a phase — and while difficult, it is usually necessary. The serious focus has a silver lining: to get real about what is limiting or lacking, so they can get clear about what needs to be done in order to be fulfilled. And when they know what to do — they can move forward.

 

Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday 7/25/2012: A Day of Revelation

Keeping tuning in to the cosmos and download the stream of innovative ideas and inspiration that can be yours when mental Mercury makes an easy connection to Uranus, the rebel genius, at 9:28AM ET.  Serious ambition — or feeling of loss — is suggested by the Moon (in cerebral Libra) in a tight hook-up with disciplined Saturn at 11:22AM ET. Those are the two exact aspects setting the tone for the day.

After the Moon-Saturn hook-up, Moon goes void of course until 10:29PM ET, and then enters Scorpio.Go with the flow of whatever twists or flakes you encounter during the void — and maybe spend some more time brainstorming on those nifty ideas that hit you in the past 24 hours.

Or, if you’re more moved by the gravitas suggested by the Moon-Saturn connection, combined with nebulous Neptune (film, escape, drugs, vision) currently running wild, and you’re also moved by last week’s Colorado theater shootings (Mars-Pluto-Uranus), why not take two hours and watch Bowling for Columbine. This brilliant 2002 Academy Award-winning documentary seeks answers in the aftermath of another massacre in Colorado — this one at a high school. Why is there so much gun violence in America — compared to other nations? Watch the film for free on this YouTube link — courtesy of the filmmaker, Michael Moore. The issues raised may well be related to the challenges posed by the First Quarter Moon (to the New Moon agenda set on 7/19), exact at 4:56AM ET on Thursday.
