Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 2/20/2014: Good Stuff & Mark Zuckerberg’s Perfect Timing

Note your dreams upon waking, along with any flashes of insight captured by your conscious mind. The Moon in substance-seeking Scorpio is easily supported by an easy connection to intuitive Neptune at 7:43AM ET, followed by an equally easy connection from expansive Jupiter in nurturing Cancer at 6:27PM ET. Blast through your to-do list, especially if it involves organization and getting to the heart of a matter. I don’t know yet if there was a winner in Wednesday night’s ginormous Powerball drawing, but next week’s planetary patterns do suggest the potential for a big payout.

On Sunday at 1:11PM ET, the Sun and nebulous Neptune meet up in dreamy Pisces, suggesting themes of fantasy, dreams, drugs, spirits, music, film and other intangible escapes. On Wednesday we’ll see Jupiter, the cosmic sugar daddy, in a challenging square to rebel Uranus. Big news in technology, revolutions, aerospace, investments and sudden changes of fortune are suggested, as well as potential seismic shake-ups and news from the cosmos. The latter pattern involves slower-moving planets; experience suggests that events often manifest before the pattern is exact.

One big item in technology and investments that hit yesterday was the acquisition of the messaging start-up What’s App by Facebook for a cool $16 billion. I was particularly delighted to see this, because when I looked at Mark Zuckerberg’s horoscope at the time of Facebook’s dismal IPO, I noted that in 2013 and 2014, his Jupiter (expansion; often material) would be supercharged by the never-ending Uranus-Pluto square. This suggested that Zuckerberg would likely be feeling very resourceful and expansive. Earlier this year he made headlines as America’s top philanthropist. Coincidence or conspiracy? Also noted in Zuckerberg’s chart: disciplined Saturn is now exactly opposing his Taurus Sun, suggesting an ambitious reach; transiting Jupiter is opposing his natal Jupiter, adding to the potential largesse.

One of the themes of the never-ending Uranus-Pluto square is nuclear energy, as in uranium and plutonium.  The ongoing situation at Fukushima reflects that theme.  As noted in prior posts, with Jupiter almost exactly engaged with Uranus, we can expect a significant headline about Fukushima — and here it is, as of minutes ago: another big leak of highly radioactive water, “the largest since last August,” when both Jupiter (expansion) and Mars (action) were engaged with Uranus and Pluto. Wow. We’ll see what develops in mid-April, when all four of those planets will be in an exact Cardinal Grand Cross.

Finally, an odd item on the home page — at least for the New York Times — but perhaps not-so-odd, given the aforementioned upcoming hook-up between the Sun and Hollywood-loving Neptune. Actor James Franco wrote an op-ed about another actor, Shia LaBeouf, whom most New York Times readers apparently would not recognize if they fell into his lap at an Oscar party (read the comments on the Op-Ed).  Franco notes that his fellow thespian has been behaving “erratically” in public and was also accused of plagiarism. Is this a sign of a nervous breakdown? Immediately I am thinking we will see stresses in LaBeouf’s horoscope involving mental Mercury, rebel Uranus, potent Pluto and probably nebulous Neptune. This would suggest supercharged communication and thinking needs, and possible issues with escapism vs. reality.  And in fact, we do see these stresses.

Natally, LaBeouf’s Gemini Sun is challenged by Uranus; his Mercury (mindset) is challenged by nebulous Neptune. That Mercury is currently being supercharged by the Uranus-Pluto square, just as Catherine Zeta-Jones’ very strong Mercury was being supercharged last April when she checked herself into a mental hospital (for help with her bipolar disorder). Point is, if Mercury is undergoing a Uranus-Pluto transit, it likely will generate a tremendous mental buzz needing a release, for better or for worse. And if you know about such a transit in advance, you can plan a strategy to use the buzz for the former, not the latter.

May you manifest the potential good times suggested by today’s planetary patterns…

Mercury retrograde is an excellent time to REview your life with your astrologer — and find out if your own Mercury is being supercharged.  Here’s the 411 on scheduling a personal consultation…I look forward to hearing from you.




Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday 6/4/2013

OK, so yesterday was a bad day for links. If you’d like to see the Cheerios commercial and the story about colonoscopies mentioned in yesterday’s forecast, the correct links are now on the post on the website.

Most of us are waking up to an impulsive Aries Moon that is void-of-course, suggesting you can catch a few extra minutes of sleep (guilty!) without consequence. Roll with whatever twists you may encounter until 11:53AM ET, and realize that the people who are running around madly don’t appreciate that during Moon voids, wheels are more likely to spin than take you directly to your destination. Be patient with them.

The day gets into gear when the Moon enters Taurus, contributing its material security and comfort-seeking energy needs to the already static emotionally self-sufficient qualities of the Grand Water Trine we discussed yesterday among mental Mercury, stern Saturn and nebulous Neptune. Should be a rich week for creativity, finance, art and social expression — though not without a dose of magical, infectious or irritable weirdness suggested by a fast-approaching challenge between nebulous Neptune (viruses, pixiedust, sublime spiritual states) and aggressive Mars in double-talking Gemini, which is exact on Friday at 7:58PM ET. Oh, the TMI that may blow our minds between now and then.

And here I would be thinking of a TMI, nitty-gritty (Saturn in Scorpio) interview now going viral (Neptune in Pisces), pun obviously intended: Michael Douglas allegedly talking about what may have caused his Stage 4 throat cancer. A quick glance at Douglas’s horoscope and we instantly see a pixiedust hook-up between his Libra Sun and nebulous Neptune (glamour! intrigue! bewilderment — possibly — about one’s one identity) squared by an enterprising Moon at 3 Capricorn. (isn’t it interesting that Douglas has a solid reputation as a no-nonsense, enterprising producer — more so at various points in his career than as an actor).  With those placements of the Sun and Moon we conclude there would have been a tremendously intense period of development in his life in 2009 and 2011, when Uranus in early Aries and Pluto in early Capricorn put pressure on them. We also note a hook-up between mental Mercury and expansive Jupiter in detail-obsessed and health-conscious Virgo (!!); so it’s no surprise that Douglas would be so forthcoming about his health — in all of its excruciating detail —  instead of telling the reporter to mind their own business.

I have been meaning to write about Catherine Zeta-Jones (who is married to Douglas) ever since it was announced a few weeks ago that she was seeking treatment for mental health issues. Why? Because when I read the story, I immediately thought — “oh — her Mercury (mind) must be under pressure by the disruptive Uranus-Pluto square”.  And that is exactly what was going on! Her Mercury is at 10 Libra (retrograde), and was exactly opposed by Uranus at 10 Aries and squared by Pluto at 10 Capricorn when this story broke on April 30th.  This is why I find astrology so intriguing. Something happens and astrologers expect to see a certain planetary pattern; and there it is. Of course there are other measurements in Zeta-Jones’s horoscope which suggest a possible need to collapse on the nearest faintest couch, and there are also some striking similarities between her horoscope and her husband’s chart that would make for a compelling article. If you’re interested, I’ll write more on the subject tomorrow. Right now, I gotta run….
