Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 5/7/2015: More News; More Maxims; Venus Enters Cancer

Don’t stop. Moon is still in Sagittarius, thinking big; expanding its reach. It goes void at 1:51PM ET and quickly shifts gears into Capricorn at 2:16PM ET. Moon in Capricorn means business. Make it happen.

At 6:52PM ET, Venus — planet of love, money, women and social expression — leaves flirty Gemini for nurturing, family and security-oriented Cancer. Expect issues and headlines on those topics to pull focus.

And now, the news.

More limits breached yesterday, as global carbon levels reached a new threshold.

Update on that story about turmoil at Al-Jazeera America: its CEO has reportedly been ousted.

File this one in the Uranus Square Pluto folder: “Canada’s Political Landscape Undergoes Seismic Shift With Election in Alberta“. I was looking at Canada’s horoscope the other day. It’s been hot for a few years, ever since Uranus and Pluto made contact with its 8 degree Cancer Sun. Now Uranus has hit Canada’s pioneering 16 degree Aries Ascendant, with Pluto to follow next year. We can expect more changes of direction and perspective from our neighborhood to the north. Don’t you just love how the headline says “SEISMIC” — one of the keywords of Uranus and Pluto? How cool is that!

Meanwhile, across the Pond, voters in the UK are facing “the election of a lifetime”.  As the NYT reports, “the traditional two-party system is breaking down…” Yep. “Breaking down”. Very Uranus square Pluto.  How’s your infrastructure doing?

Meanwhile, New York State has been dealing with its own breakdowns, as yet another top dog in state government has been charged with corruption. This time it was the Dean Skelos, the Senate Leader…and what a mess it was yesterday when other state senators tried to get Mr. Skelos removed from his position.

More seismic shifts in the world of power and resources, as Tesla announced it was overwhelmed by the “crazy” response it has received to its Powerwall — a home battery whose goal is “a complete transformation of the entire energy infrastructure of the world,” according to  CEO Elon Musk. I wrote about Musk’s horoscope in August of 2013. I’m pleased to report he’s performing as anticipated.

Meanwhile, there’s a “huge shake up” going on at McDonald’s, which has been performing rather poorly as of late. A look at its horoscope (March 1, 1965 — the date Franchise Realty Corporation merged with Regrub, Inc., thus creating “McDonald’s”), shows transiting Neptune right on top of the Midheaven (status), Saturn (structure) and Sun. No wonder its CEO says the company needs “a sharper focus”.  Yup, sharper focus, a.k.a. a new vision, which is the potential of a heavy Neptune transit, bewildering as it may be.  Fun fact: every time I went to reference the chart in my Standard and Poor’s 500 by Carol S. Mull, it took me five minutes to find it. It was as if the McDonald’s horoscope was lost in a fog. Maddening.

Here’s a good one for a day when Venus enters Cancer (mom and apple pie): “A Mother’s Cookbook Shares More Than Recipes”.

Here’s one I meant to share that was apropos for last weekend’s Mercury-Saturn opposition. Saturn refers to old things. Mercury provides information and direction. Consider: “A History of Cartography in 12 Amazing Maps”.  Maps and direction — what’s not to like? It gives me an opportunity to share more of my favorite maxims, since the ones I posted yesterday were so well-received.

“No matter where you go…there you are,” is a classic pearl of wisdom from the cult classic The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai: Across the 8th Dimension.

Here’s how one of my writing teachers dispensed advice on story structure: “If you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll end up someplace else”.

Helpful, right?

Don’t end up someplace else. Know where you’re going.  One way to do that is look at a map. Your potential destinations are right there on paper. Learn about them, and plan a sensible travel route.

Of course, one map worth looking at is your horoscope. You don’t even have to know how to read it. That’s what astrologers are for — to help you plan your life itinerary and get you to where you want to go.  Here’s the 411 on personal consultations.

Happy trails!

Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday 2/26/2014: Dark Side of the Moon

East Coasters and super-early risers on the West Coast: remember that the Capricorn Moon is void for four hours this AM, not to become fully engaged in the next sign, Aquarius, until 9:55AM ET. A twist or detour in your morning routine/commute is suggested, as Moon voids often challenge efforts to move forward in a straight line.

The potential for twists and snafus spills over into the next couple of days, exacerbated by the super-charged buoyancy of jolly Jupiter’s contact with electric Uranus and the Sun…combined with the slooooooooow moving drag of FOUR planets about to change direction: Mercury (mind, travel, communication), Mars (action), Jupiter (expansion) and Saturn (contraction).  What was I writing earlier this week about not knowing if we were coming or going? If in doubt, chill out. Corollary (as seen on my Facebook newsfeed): “A wise man once said nothing”.  Word!

We are in the dark side of the Moon, the end of the lunar cycle. Appropriate actions include wrapping up projects from the past few weeks. There are no exact aspects to the Moon during business hours today, even when it does engage in cerebral, detached, “who’s yer buddy?” Aquarius. The lack of input from other planets, along with the dark Moon, can suggest a listless, restless energy. The New Moon happens at 2:59AM ET on Sunday. Patience, patience, patience….

And now, the news.

Pie-in-the-sky stories reflecting the stunning magic of Jupiter (cosmic sugar daddy) squared by Uranus (lightning bolt), as anticipated? You bet. Here’s a quote from one of them:

“I don’t like to say once-in-a-lifetime for anything, but you don’t get an opportunity to handle this kind of material, a treasure like this, ever,” said veteran numismatist Don Kagin, who is representing the finders. “It’s like they found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.”

What a nice middle-aged couple in California couple actually found was $10 million in gold coins buried on their property. OMG, don’t you wish?

Here’s another:

By any measure, it is a lightning reversal of events…

…in which the National Enquirer was obligated to establish and fund a generous play writing competition as a settlement for publishing outrageous fiction about a friend of actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman. Well, in this planetary weather pattern of heavy nebulous Neptune influences and Mercury retrograde muddling of facts, we expected more than one stunning communication misfire — remember?

Meanwhile, is it a coincidence or conspiracy that when Jupiter was engaged with the Uranus-Pluto square in August 2013, Elon Musk, the man behind the Tesla electric car and other “the future is now” productions, was making headlines? And now today, with Jupiter square Uranus again, Tesla’s stock is soaring

From yesterday: Alec Baldwin was the talk of the town when he penned a lengthy piece in New York Magazine stating that he was retiring from public life. Mr. Baldwin has the Sun at 13 degrees of me-me-me Aries, which will soon (in April) be supercharged by the Cardinal Grand Cross, suggesting a need for emancipation and empowerment.   I suspect that Cross has also been rattling his Libra Moon, which truly needs peace, balance and appreciation from others. This is in spite of a defensive “I do not need anything material from you” posture suggested by a natal Grand Trine among mental Mercury, Saturn and Pluto. Well, horoscopes with seemingly contradictory patterns do make the most fascinating people. Mr. Baldwin’s horoscope suggests he is verrry resourceful, with a mind and communication style that demands and presents substance, is highly imaginative, potentially earthy, bombastic and likely somewhat bewildering (Mercury in Taurus opposing Jupiter-Neptune). A hair-trigger temper is suggested by a volatile Mars-Uranus opposition. Not to mention a need for unconventional social expression that can be way over the top (Venus in humanitarian Aquarius opposing ruthless Pluto).  Cue the Animals, now please

Finally, not at all pleased to note actor/writer/director Harold Ramis passed away yesterday. Three planets in Mr. Ramis’ horoscope have been under pressure from the Uranus-Pluto square, and one of those planets is his natal Saturn. That can be heavy, especially when transiting Saturn is also active. Mr. Ramis starred in Ghostbusters and he directed Groundhog Day, an absolutely must-see film. It’s just so darn witty and wise, and if you pay close attention, you’ll remember exactly what to do in order to have a happy, fulfilling, meaningful life. Seriously.

If that doesn’t work, consider consulting your local astrologer…
