Astro-logical Forecast for Friday 5/29/2015 & the Weekend: Color It Rose

Take note of your dreams this morning….

After a potential jolt to the peace-loving Libra Moon at 8:17AM ET, the day is mostly free and clear. Ship it before 4:20PM ET, when the Moon goes void on an indulgent contact between the Libra Moon and Venus (money, women, social expression, values). TGIF and head for the nearest happy hour.

Moon enters emotionally intense Scorpio at 5:34AM ET, looking for depth, power and control. Idealism runs high through the weekend, many may be walking and talking with blinders on — or in a rose-colored fog. Don’t worry, it will lift a bit next week…

There’s no Moon void to detour your shopping adventures this weekend, but with Mercury retrograde, I would not invest in a major purchase. Feed your soul instead — with senseless beauty and random acts of kindness. You can probably get away with a late start to the work week, as the Moon will be void on Monday between 7AM and 2:39PM ET…

And now, the news.

Here’s a random post from almost four years ago, noting a few events that hit the wires in a prior Neptune-Sun-Mercury extravaganza. This was before someone taught me how to use hyperlinks…

Talk about shrouded in fog. Big news today is that former House Speaker Denny Hastert has been indicted on charges of lying to FBI agents about millions of dollars paid to an “Individual A”. This unknown person received these funds as compensation for an equally unknown transgression on the part of Mr. Hastert…leaving much to the imagination. It should surprise no one who reads this forecast that planetary patterns on Mr. Hastert’s January 2, 1942 birthday have been mightily supercharged by Uranus and Pluto over the past few years. His 11 Capricorn Sun and 18 Capricorn Mercury have been under pressure, along with his sensitive (degree unknown) Cancer Moon.

More Neptune on the home pages:  “In Europe, Fake Jobs Can Have Real Benefits”; Delusionary Thinking in Washington”; “Detailed Plans vs. ‘A Whole Lot of Crazy‘”. That last story refers to James E. Holmes, whom you may remember as the man who dressed up as The Joker and killed people at the midnight premiere of a Batman movie. The “detailed plans” refer to his Moon in Virgo; the “crazy” refers to Neptune running wild. His horoscope was covered in this forecast here , before an exact birth time was known.

Heavy Neptune, combined with other patterns, sometimes calls up an image of pouring oil on troubled waters. My teacher once said that Neptune “puts ambition to sleep”. In the Middle East, the entity known as ISIS has conquered Palmyra, but oddly enough, it has not destroyed the city’s “magnificent Greco-Roman ruins”…at least not yet.

Neptune is one of the planets associated with memory. How interesting to see this story: “Amnesia Researchers Use Light to Restore Lost Memory in Mice”. Meanwhile,  this story of healing borders on the surreal:  “Woman Comes Face-to-face with her Dead Brother’s Transplanted Face”.

Want to buy your own magical Neptunian retreat? Neverland, Michael Jackson’s former home, is for sale.  Or just escape into your mind with Google’ new virtual reality device. Last but not least, “Water: the Strangest Chemical in the Universe”.

What’s going on in your horoscope? Feeling a bit bewildered? You may be going through a heavy Neptune transit. A personal astrological consultation can bring you clarity and solid strategies for making the most out of what is often a confusing time. Here’s the 411 on consultations. We will have a excellent discussion together.

 

Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 8/13/2012: Venus in the Hot Seat

Monday begins dreamily enough, with the Moon in sensitive Cancer in an easy connection with nebulous Neptune at 8:30AM ET. Did you note your dreams upon waking? Could have been quite a trip.

The need of the first part of this week  is emotional and/or homeland security — all the way until Wednesday at 2:05PM. For some, that need may be a challenge. Do you remember the week of July 16th? Aggressive Mars was actively engaged with the disruptive Uranus-Pluto square. That was a tough week for many, especially those whose horoscopes are directly impacted by this powerful pattern. James E. Holmes, the man who took out his aggression in a movie theater in Colorado, is an example of a “worst-case scenario” of a horoscope triggered by a challenging Mars transit.

This week we have loving Venus — women, money, art, beauty — actively engaged with Uranus and Pluto. Pay attention to events happening now, as we will see this pattern repeated the week before the US election on November 6th, and it may feel oddly familiar. At its best, ruthless Pluto challenging Venus can empower one’s social position and/or artistry. Just ask Paul Ryan, the presumptive Republican nominee for Vice-President, who is experiencing a Pluto-Venus empowerment in his own horoscope. At its worst, this aspect can bring out emotional overkill and witchy-bitchy women as in “If I be waspish, best beware my sting.” Or the witchy-bitchiness may be taken out ON women. I’ll give you an example of emotional overkill in a minute.

Add to this mix eccentric Uranus. When engaged with Venus, Uranus suggests a taste for the unusual and unconventional. Sudden attractions that end as quickly as they begin. It also suggests the needs of the collective taking precedence over the needs of the individual. Got that? Now we add another aspect: aggressive Mars hooking up with disciplined Saturn in Libra (exact at 6:37AM ET on Wednesday). At its best, we think “military precision”, as in the military precision already noted in the exquisitely-executed landing of Curiosity on Mars. At its worst, we think of the military — or militant — precision of a police officers in Times Square who executed (with Venus-Pluto overkill, some argue) a knife-wielding man (bizarre, sudden Venus-Uranus encounter) on Saturday. That was the promised example of emotional overkill.

Those are the highlights of the week: Pluto opposing Venus and Mars conjunct Saturn on Wednesday; Uranus square Venus on Thursday. Now that you are aware of them, you can temper your responses to any provocative situations you encounter this week by consciously choosing not to add fuel to a fire. See if you can be more like the Mars Curiosity landing; less like the incident in Times Square. And yes, we will talk more about Paul Ryan, and why Mitt Romney can’t help but love the guy later this week.

Moon voids, so you can plan ahead:  Wednesday 4:21AM ET – 2:05PM ET; Friday 1:55PM ET – 8:33PM ET.
