Thank you!"

Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday 3/26/2013: Order in the Court

Chag Pesach Semeach!

Such an appropriate week to be celebrating liberation from slavery, given the focus on freedom and independence in current planetary patterns. Even the Obamas hosted a seder, which apparently they’ve done every year since 2008. Who knew?

As reported yesterday, there are no lunar aspects today. Moon is still in Virgo and still void. Does your desk need to be cleaned? Got a closet that needs to be organized? Such tasks can be richly rewarding, and there’s plenty of high-octane energy to attack such projects, with willful Mars in a supportive connection with expansive Jupiter, exact at 6:27AM ET. An early morning workout isn’t a bad idea, either. Really, find a constructive way to blow off some steam.

With the Moon waxing full,  so are emotions.In Virgo, the need to be correct is paramount. Who’s finding fault with you now? Try not to take it personally,  and choose your battles verrrrry carefully. If you’re really on the side of the angels, stand your ground and push for a breakthrough. If not, let it go. Many will be noticing more than the usual stress in relationships this week. See yesterday’s forecast for those most likely to be affected.

Moon enters Libra at 5:32PM ET, shifting the focus from perfection to fairness and integrity in relationship…which could be a challenge, given ruthless Pluto squaring aggressive Mars just before midnight ET. Well, at least you will know where you stand…


All of the above make an intriguing backdrop for two major cases to be argued before the Supreme Court today and tomorrow — both involving freedom and equality in relationship; i.e. same-sex marriage. Here’s a historical perspective on the issue — and you’ll note that the article gives 1969 as the start of the gay rights movement. Yes, 1969 — shortly after the Uranus-Pluto conjunction that reflected so much revolution around the globe…and here we are now, with the Uranus-Pluto square.  Astro-logical patterns suggest this is the time to move forward, not backward.

While many are saying that Justice Kennedy will be the decisive vote in a possible 5-4 decision, Justice Antonin Scalia has also been getting press, as some wonder how he will behave as the arguments are presented. Scalia’s horoscope is under pressure  from Mars and the Uranus-Pluto square — specifically, a point that refers to dealings with the public (and how he needs to evolve in this lifetime). Still another point that refers to the potential for combat in relationships is highlighted this week, as follows: “energy helping or upsetting relationship; sexual awareness in partnership; drive for fulfillment” (astrologer Noel Tyl, describing aggressive Mars on the Sun/Moon midpoint). Coincidence or conspiracy?

Meanwhile, an avid reader shared a surreal conversation that happened yesterday, during the Moon void. And you wonder why people ask “Is Mercury retrograde?” during voids…

Calling AT&T tech support this morning, including half hour of hold time…
Me: “Good morning, one of our tv receivers seems to be broken, making a loud buzzing sound and picture is freezing.”
AT&T: “Are you calling about your phone, internet or tv?”
Me: “(see above)”
AT&T: “What seems to be the problem?”
Me: “(see above)”
AT&T: “Your receiver appears to be broken.”
Me: “!”
AT&T: “Please return it in the box provided within 10 days.”
Me: “What box?”
AT&T: “The box the new one comes in. You will be receiving this in 24-48 days.”
Me: “Days?”
AT&T: “Yes, 24-48 hours. Thank you for calling AT&T.”

Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday 4/5/2011: Obama, Scalia and More

Why do things happen when they do, according to astrology? Your horoscope is a map of a moment in time — the moment, presumably, when you took your first breath. That map (you could also call it a pattern — or even a software program for the soul) does not change. But the planets keep moving, and as as they move, they connect with planets and points in your horoscope. Imagine a cue ball striking other balls on a pool table. The cue ball is a transiting planet — one that is moving. The other balls are planets in your horoscope — not moving. Got that? So when those balls on the table are being triggered by transiting planets/cue balls, the horoscope is “hot” and  things happen.

For example, last Tuesday a man presumably on his way to work was issued a ticket after rear-ending another car stopped in traffic. This man, born Mar 11, 1936 @ 8:55PM in Trenton, NJ, had his natal Mars in impulsive, impatient Aries triggered by last Monday’s Jupiter – Saturn opposition. This suggests frustration or delays in efforts to expand or move forward, directly connected to his 3rd house of short journeys.  The man’s Mercury (mind, communication, travel) is currently under the influence of nebulous Neptune, perhaps clouding his usual sharp focus. Transiting Mercury was stationary retrograde almost exactly opposite his Libra Ascendant and Pluto in Cancer.  There’s more, but that’s enough to suggest a potentially explosive release of energy projected in a public one-on-one encounter, as a result of unfocused thinking and impatient and/or aggressive actions curbed by certain controls, such as two tons of steel blocking one’s path. Such was the case with Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia Fascinating!

Meanwhile, rumors that Barack Obama would announce his campaign for re-election on Monday had me flummoxed. Launch a major initiative during a void of course Moon? But…why? I was therefore surprised to receive an official announcement email from his campaign committee time-stamped 4:13AM — two hours before the void began. Hmmm…interesting.  Do you remember a few weeks ago, when Obama ordered our military forces into Libya, I observed that the top of Obama’s horoscope (which has to do with career, status and reputation) was being challenged by a square from nebulous Neptune, suggesting confusion and/or illusion in those areas of his life. Others may find his actions bewildering — or inspiring; Obama may be struggling to present a clearly defined picture, but somehow the message is diluted and/or dissolved. Would you believe that the chart for 4:13AM 4/4/2011 in Washington DC shows this EXACT aspect: Neptune challenging this top of the chart!! Coincidence or conspiracy?

Finally, this tidbit: Steven L. Newman, CEO of Transocean Ltd., the company that co-produced last April’s Mercury retrograde disaster (the Deepwater Horizon oil spill), might well benefit from an astrologer on his staff. Apparently unaware of the likely effects of Mercury retrograde in impatient, impulsive Aries, last week Newman proudly announced…oh, let me just quote the opening line of the CNN article. Warning! May cause spit takes:

“The owner of the Gulf of Mexico oil rig that exploded last year, killing 11 workers and leading to what has been called the worst oil spill ever, said Monday that calling 2010 its “best year” in safety “may have been insensitive.”

But surely not as insensitive as Newman’s reported $200,000 salary increase. Did I just hear you mutter, “that’s not FAIR!”  (see yesterday’s forecast) Congratulations, you’re reflecting perfectly Saturn’s current journey through Libra.

Bottom line: in a Mercury retrograde, especially THIS Mercury retrograde, silence can be a very good friend.

Tuesday dawns with some lunar traction in Taurus, a sign that needs to establish material security by giving form to — and organizing — ideas. No void Moon on a work day — woo-hoo! This can be a wonderfully productive day, buoyed by an optimistic, expansive connection between the Sun and jolly Jupiter, the cosmic sugar daddy. Buy a few lottery tickets, especially if you’re celebrating a birthday this week or if you have a planet at 16-17 degrees of Aries. Hey, you never know. And definitely get it done today, as opposed to Wednesday, because the Moon goes void again Tuesday at 7:02PM EDT…and doesn’t enter Gemini until 7:22AM EDT Thursday.

Tomorrow, a look at the horoscope of Governor Paul LePage, currently employed by the people of the State of Maine. To the readers who made this request several days ago, thanks for your patience.
