Thursday-Friday 7/27-28/2017: Icarus Falls and Other Wonders

The Virgo Moon went void at 2:31 AM ET, wandering without focus on its quest for perfection — for better or for worse. A Moon void suggests crises that crop up are likely much ado about nothing. Should I file this morning’s headline about the “Justice” Department’s argument that a federal civil rights law does not protect employees from discrimination based on sexual orientation in this category? Is this yet another distraction from Other Things the PTB Would Prefer We Not Know About?

At 11:37 AM ET, see if you notice the shift as the Moon engages in the next sign, Libra. A Libra Moon seeks balance, fairness and no small amount of people-pleasing. It cruises without interference for the rest of the day, pushing forward its agenda around 9PM ET, suggested by a boost to the Moon from  the Sun (leaders) and Mars (action) in “l’etat, c’est moi” Leo.

More of the same on Friday — smooth sailing for the Moon in the AM and early PM,  building to an expansive burst of optimism or excess around 6:35 PM ET, as the Moon meets up with Jupiter. A power play or emotional catharsis may soon follow, as the Moon makes its weekly clash with ruthless Pluto. Should be an interesting afternoon for end-of-the-workweek headlines.

And now, the news…a.k.a: “oh what fresh hell is this?”

Wednesday morning began with a face-off between the hypercritical/perfection-seeking Virgo Moon and delusional/bewildering Neptune, exact at 6:37AM ET. Add in the planetary pattern of the week — i.e, the meet-up of the Sun and militant Mars in rip roarin’ Leo, and you’ve got an apt backdrop for yet another boondoogle of a tweetstorm from five-time draft-dodger P45. Driving us to distraction this time was a royal proclamation that in order to form a more perfect military, transgendered persons will no longer be permitted to serve. It’s just more efficient, you see — and thrifty, too — especially in terms of health care costs — all  cherished Virgo buzzwords. And never mind that the health care cost of transgendered personnel pales in comparison to the amount spent on treating erectile dysfunction (blasted macho Mars in Leo fried to a crisp by its exact meet-up with the fireball Leo Sun) — $41.6 million on Viagra alone.   Delusional? Surreal? A tad dictatorial? The Defense Department was “blindsided” — never saw it coming, reflecting the potential of Mars (war, military) literally blinded by its exact proximity to the overpowering Sun.

Caitlyn Jenner, clutching her pearls as she processed the shock of realizing what havoc her Election Day vote has wreaked upon the nation, expressed outrage, just as her horoscope suggests she would at this time. Check out the chart and notice how the Sun-Mars meet-up is provoking her Scorpio Sun and Ascendant, while transiting Mercury in Virgo sits on her Mars; transiting Saturn squeezes the life out of her Venus (social expression; values) at 20 Sagittarius; transiting Pluto squaring her natal Mercury motivates her to transform her perspective and express herself persuasively; and finally, transiting Uranus squaring her natal Jupiter shakes up her values and self-worth. Isn’t astrology amazing? Just wait until 2018, when transiting Uranus zaps her Aquarius Moon and intensifies her need to be seen as a humanitarian of social significance. Watch her broaden her reach.

Late-night comics are having a field day, as is NYT columnist Gail Collins, whose usual cheerful demeanor is noticeably subdued once again by the influence of transiting Saturn (sobering) on her Mercury (mindset). Op-ed columnists liberal and conservative — including  Charles Blow ,  Jennifer Rubin and even Ken Starr are also reflecting the potential of the Sabian Symbol for the recent New Moon in Leo: a fit of apoplexy. Told you so.

Meanwhile, Orrin Hatch (R-UT)  surprised many when he stated last night, “Transgender people are people and deserve the best we can do for them.” I’m not surprised. When it was rumored months ago that exposure of corruption in the current Administration and on Capitol Hill would lead to Senator Hatch becoming president, I thought, “well, that seems like a really big stretch, but given the chaotic Mad Hatter Tea Party suggested by pertinent horoscopes, let’s check it out.” Do we see the potential  for exceptional recognition and reward in Orrin Hatch’s horoscope?  Yes — and we do have a birth time for him: 1PM on 3/22/1934 in Homestead Park, PA.

His pioneering Aries Sun at the Aries Point brings energy to lead and inspire, driven by a Moon in Gemini that needs to be the smartest kid in the room. It’s fronted by a Cancer Ascendant, needing to be seen as caring and sensitive, concerned with family and home(land) security.  And oh — looky, he has a Sun-Mars conjunction, too — only in Aries, champion of the underdog (on a really good day).  Those religious hymns he writes? Chalk that up to an opposition between Mercury (mindset. communication) and Neptune (faith, music) placed in the areas of his horoscope related to writing and publishing.

His horoscope has been hot this year — and will continue to be so into 2018.  Like P45, he’s been enjoying the expansive and rewarding potential of Jupiter’s return to its natal placement in the horoscope. It was exact on his March solar return and will hit again on August 23rd.   Transiting Uranus is squaring his Cancer Ascendant, suggesting a potential fresh start or upset; it’s also conjoining his natal Uranus, suggesting a need for independence and freedom, as in not having any more eff’s to give, as the saying goes. The potential for a change of status could apply in personal as well as professional affairs. The first hits of these two series of three emancipating/disruptive Uranus transits happened in May, when that wild presidential rumor hit the headlines. Let’s watch around October and next March, for hits two and three.

But the measurement that really intrigued me – after pondering how events in his life might reflect the potential in his horoscope — is between his Midheaven (career/honor/public status) and his prominent pioneering Aries Sun (technical term, for astrology pros and students, is “solar arc”).  It permeates all of 2017 and it is exact on August 2nd.  It suggests “professional fulfillment; getting what one deserves,” as expressed by astrologer Noel Tyl.  Point is, based on that transit, I’ve been anticipating an opportunity for Senator Hatch to shine in the spotlight right about now, and was thus pleased to see him making news yesterday on such a positive, caring and humanitarian note.

In early December transiting Saturn will oppose his Moon.  Hard aspects between Saturn-Moon aspects can suggest ambition/advance realized out of a sense of lack or loss.  The gravitas continues in January, as transiting Saturn squares his Aries Sun, suggesting heavy responsibility and/or streamlining —  with an extra dose of prominence in public and personal status. We shall see.

Meanwhile, yesterday’s Sun-Mars in Leo meet-up also involved the asteroid Icarus. In mythology, Icarus was given wings made of feathers and wax which were to be used to escape imprisonment in labyrinth.   Ignoring his father’s wise advice, Icarus flew high — way up to the Sun — where his wings of wax melted and he fell into the sea and died. Moral of the story: hubris will destroy you. Add that mythological element into your reading of yesterday’s news.

Meanwhile…Leo refers to entertainment and fun parks. Here’s a headline from WaPo — posted soon after that Sun-Mars-Icarus conjunction in Leo: “Aggressive Thrill Ride Snaps in Mid-Air, Killing One and Injuring Seven.” What’s the name of the “thrill ride”. THE FIREBALL. Still not convinced by the astonishing synchronicity of headline news and planetary patterns? I don’t know what to tell you then, because I can’t do any better than that! Feel free to chip in to my Cosmic Tip Jar — I’ve fixed the link — fingers crossed — if you tried it before and couldn’t follow through on your appreciative (and much appreciated) impulse. Gratitude.

Other Mars-Sun (and arguably Icarus, too) headlines:

Saturday & Sunday 7/22-23/2017: New Moon in Leo; Shake, Rattle & Roll

Greetings from Durham, NC!

It’s just like LA, only with 5000% humidity and no palm trees. Yes, surely I jest. It is hot — like most everywhere else this week — but lush and green and beautiful. The local market is a foodie’s paradise, offering delicacies such as local cheese made from water buffalo milk among the five varieties of grits. I don’t think I’d find any water buffalo cheese in the little brick store sporting “TOBACCO” in big black letters against a bright yellow background. Not “Joe’s Tobacco Shoppe,” just TOBACCO. Also in black and yellow:  fabric signs on manicured lawns  reading “Thank  you, Jesus.”  Haven’t seen those in Manhattan or Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, in the stars…

Driving the day with a need for emotional/homeland security is the Moon in Cancer, where it has been since early Friday morning. Are you staying close to home? Calling Mom? It’s a dead Moon — the last day of the lunar cycle. This would account for any sense of listlessness or restlessness felt over the past couple of days, as if you’re waiting for something new to begin, but you’re not sure what. Between now and the New Moon on Sunday at 5:46 AM ET, the Cancer need for emotional comfort will be challenged by the Moon’s weekly clash with powerplayer Pluto and rebel Uranus, at 8:49 AM ET today and 2:05 AM ET on SUNDAY.

As I was typing that paragraph just after 8:49AM ET, a friend posted an article from Scientific American on my Facebook timeline, stating that babies used to be born spontaneously throughout the day and night, but now with so many scheduled C-sections and induced labors, 8AM on Monday has become the most popular birth time in the U.S.  That’s a power play involving Cancerian motherhood concerns, right? “How does this affect natal charts,” my friend wanted to know.  Answer: babies born around 8AM will most likely have the Sun in the 12th house , which suggests a greater need for privacy than most; an ability to work behind the scenes with an insider’s perspective; and a possible strong connection to “the other side,” too. Intuitively I have always felt that a 12th house Sun may have some resistance to being born (!!!) — and being literally dragged out into the world kicking and screaming in a delivery scheduled for the convenience of Mom or a doctor would reflect that potential!

At 11:16 AM ET, the Sun enters Leo. God save the kings and queens! Creative self-expression, a sense of play and romantic love are Leo trademarks. So are royal entitlement and ego aggrandizement. Leo is born to rule; there’s no need to prove its case, and the sooner everyone in the room recognizes and honors it, the happier everyone will be. Why is that so hard for non-Leos to understand?

The New Moon will be exact at 5:46 AM ET, when the Sun and Moon conjoin at 0-ish degrees of Leo. Make a list; light a candle. A New Moon offers us an opportunity to re-set  intentions and goals for the next lunar cycle.  Around July 30th, on the First Quarter Moon, we can expect a challenge to those goals, with appropriate adjustments made. At the time of the Full Moon on August 7th — which is also an eclipse — we can expect illumination on the success or failure of our goals for the cycle. If we succeeded, we can consciously release our success into our reality; if we failed, we let go of whatever did not work. After the Third Quarter Moon on the 14th, we can review our achievements, tie up loose ends and get ready to begin another New Moon on August 21st.

New Moon in Leo 2017

In this New Moon chart, the need of the Leo Sun and Moon to shine shine shine  is energized by its close conjunction with action hero Mars, also in rip-roarin’ Leo. What does Mars in Leo do best? Get away with murder with that Leonine royal entitlement. Let the record show that when we set this New Moon chart in Washington DC, the Leo Sun, Moon and Mars are strongly placed for all the world to see in the First House AND on the Ascendant. I expect we’ll have more than the usual share of regal edicts and other drives for ego assertion and recognition making waves and headlines in the U.S. during this cycle.

This “making waves” potential is echoed by the Washington DC New Moon chart’s Ascendant of 26 degrees of Cancer. You’ll note it is squared by Uranus at 28 Aries. A Cancer Ascendant needs to be seen as being nurturing, caring and sensitive; such needs are likely to be either a) disrupted or b) expressed in a way that is experienced as disruptive, eccentric, fringe and/or innovative. That disruption will also be for all the world to see, as Uranus is in the 10th house — referring to leaders and government/corporate institutions. The innovative and groundbreaking potential is echoed by a harmony between tech-savvy Uranus and Mercury (how we need to think and communicate), exact on MONDAY at 12:32 PM ET. Mercury is also in regal Leo — and we could argue that there’s a loose Grand Trine among Mercury, Saturn and Uranus, suggesting a subconscious projection of self-sufficency, i.e., who needs to ask for input from anyone else? I got this!

Note also that this New Moon chart is dominated by Fire Signs — suggesting an improvisional flair to the monthly agenda. You won’t find that agenda written anywhere; it’s make it up as you go along.

Meanwhile, there’s a harshness suggested that is likely to recall issues that were on the table in the cold, cruel month of April. –  That’s when Venus (women, money, social graces) was challenged by Saturn (patriarchy, control, ambition) in opinionated Sagittarius twice in one month. Peruse the archives of this blog to refresh your memory of that tough time.  Note that the first Venus-Saturn challenge in that harsh cycle began around the last week of January. On MONDAY at 10:53 AM ET, Venus and Saturn will oppose each other, illuminating and releasing the challenges posed during these three Venus-Saturn squares.  Venus-Saturn transits can be isolating and stark…but the silver lining is that out of the sense of lack or loss, a plan for advance may emerge. 

Also of note in this New Moon chart: power and resources to the max, suggested by the third and final of a series of squares between expansive Jupiter in Libra (law, fairness, diplomacy) and Pluto (power, news from underground) in Capricorn (Powers That Be). Follow the preceding link to a write-up on this pattern posted last December.  This third hit will be exact on August 4th. Last, but not least, nebulous Neptune, planet of the surreal, is running wild in the New Moon chart. That’s your context for the “curiouser and curiouser” events we’re likely to see in the headlines.

The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon is 1 Leo:  “a case of apoplexy” — I kid you not!  And once again, Sabian Symbol guru Blain Bovee’s wonderful book offers a meaningful interpretation. Given the volatility suggested by this week’s planetary patterns, the “case of apoplexy” is remarkable. “To be apoplectic refers to any effusion of blood into an organ or tissue…sudden fits of rage or embarrassment.” We last had this Symbol activated in the Full Moon in July of 2013, accompanied by tense patterns among Mars-Uranus-Pluto — not unlike those we experienced during the last two weeks. During this new lunar cycle,  Bovee advises us to watch for “focused enthusiasm eager to broadcast self-evident, universal truths…an intense desire to burst out of the mold; dramatic outsets of fever, feverish expression or fervent belief…watch especially for creating circumstances in which the unexpected can strike.”

You’ll see this theme manifest  more personally for you if you have a planet or angle around 1 degree of Leo, Scorpio, Taurus or Aquarius…or if you were born around the 22nd of July, April, October or January.

And now, the news….

…which is pretty much a series of “I told  you so.”  Here’s the forecast for P45’s 2017 posted last November.

Meanwhile, in Donald Trump’s horoscope, we see the first of three hits to his Moon, Sun and relationship point from transiting Saturn on 12/30, 1/6 and 1/14, respectively. Thus begins an ambitious agenda (upside) or a feeling of restrictive focus, control or loss. This pattern hits again in July, September and October. The Moon is only exactly hit once, but will still be under pressure in July. The restrictive influence of Saturn suggests he will not be able to have everything he wants — bringing to life the reality of the song he kept playing at rallies, despite objections from the artists.

These limitations are countered by expansion — in the form of three hits of transiting Jupiter to his Jupiter, ruler of the area of his horoscope which refers to creative self-expression, children and speculative ventures. Saturn co-rules that area of his horoscope, so it may be six of one; half dozen of the other. Expansion of power and resources is suggested by an extraordinary double whammy of  Pluto — also to his Jupiter — now and through 2017.

A need for innovation and excitement that disrupts his mindset, communication and professional status is also at work in 2017, suggested by transiting Uranus squaring his Venus. When I think of Venus with Uranus, I think “I love you, but don’t take it personally.” I think of unconventional attractions and surprises involving women, values, money and aesthetics. OMG I am just realizing that Venus will be retrograde in brash Aries from March 4 through April 15th. What an inauspicious time to be redecorating the White House.

Back to the president-elect…

Chiron the Wounded Healer is still in play now and next year, continuing to expose toxic patterns and relationships going back years. This week, a month from now and January-February are active for Chiron, as are June, July and August. Of special interest: the total eclipse that will fall across all of the continental United States on August 21st. This hits two points in Trump’s horoscope: Mars and his Leo Ascendant, at a time when Mars (action, aggression) will be more easily provoked. The eclipse will be triggered on September 3rd by Mars and all that week by Mercury (this applies to anyone with a point or planet at 29 Leo, Aquarius, Taurus and Scorpio). Fun fact: Mitt Romney’s Ascendant was eclipsed in May of 2012. Jeb Bush’s Ascendant was eclipsed in September of 2015. A change of status? The truth comes out? Mark your calendars.

Well?

Right now, the second big Saturn squeeze noted in November is putting pressure on P45’s opinionated Sagittarius Moon and his Gemini Sun. Saturn is at 22 Sagittarius, exactly conjoining his Moon on August 20th. Saturn opposed his Sun on July 7th and will do so again on October 11th. Even his relationships are feeling squeezed, with exact hits on July 22nd and September 27th.  If your Moon is around 20-22 degrees of Gemini, Sag, Pisces or Virgo, my money says you are also feeling squeezed, e.g., isolated, alienated, desperate to make an advance — even as your resources are feeling streamlined and controlled. Same for your Sun. When Saturn is in hard aspect to your Sun (life force), the squeeze and focus on your resources may include health/vitality concerns for you and/or a member of your family (often a parent).

Contrasting the squeeze of Saturn is the boundary-pushing expansion suggested by P45’s third hit of Jupiter conjunct Jupiter — and you’ll see some of that potential in the next two paragraphs. Bombast and luck?

Another chart to keep in mind is the one for P45’s inauguration. Here it is again — with the prognosis — posted  on January 25th.  Transiting Mars and the Sun just crossed the IC — the foundation — of the inaugural chart; Mars also opposed the Sun and today the Leo Sun opposes the Aquarius Sun of the inauguration. With this chart and P45’s chart, it’s no coincidence to see shake-ups in the Administration, including one involving his “ambassadors,” the recently-departed press secretary Sean Spicer and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.  “Spicer’s Abrupt Departure Rattles A White House on Edge.”   “Citing Recusal, Trump Says He Wouldn’t Have Hired Sessions,” who, by the way, totally talked with the Russians about things he said he never talked about, according to recent revelations in WaPo.   Given what we know of Mr. Sessions horoscope — posted in March — that’s no surprise.

Other (saber) rattling news included P45 warning Robert Mueller to keep his investigation far, far away from his family finances, for obvious reasons summed up in Esquire. That, along with rumblings that P45 may be looking for ways to pardon himself and his associates for any wrongdoing, tweeting this morning that “all agree the US president has the complete power to pardon.” You may recall I noted in the last forecast that we’d be seeing more and more of  “because I said so” offered as a rationale for action, now that Mars has entered Leo! Does this one fit the bill?  Vladimir Putin may or may not have been joking when he said this week that he hadn’t decided whether he would ever leave the presidency, a presumably elected  post he’s had now for 17 years.

In other news, last Thursday evening’s Sun-Uranus square was a pattern suggesting accidents and seismic activity might capture our attention.  What did I see on the news in my brief stop in New York? Planes (crashing), trains (derailing) and automobiles (also crashing — during a 120 mph Venus trine Jupiter “joyride”). For seismic activity, Greece and Turkey obliged.  Meanwhile, on the tundra, “all hell breaks loose.”

Freedom is another Sun-Uranus keyword, and this week O.J. Simpson was granted parole, a few weeks after his third hit of transiting Jupiter square his Cancer Sun. That can be expansive, for better or for worse.  He will be released in October after nine years in prison. In November he will have a hit to his Pisces Moon from transiting Saturn, along with a potentially heavy solar arc to his Sun from Saturn. That suggests a squeeze – or other serious restriction imposed. If a health issue makes news, I would not be surprised.

What’s going on in your horoscope? Aren’t you dying to know how all of these planetary patterns apply to you personally? Let’s talk about it in a personal consultation — by phone on in-person. I’m in Raleigh-Durham until Tuesday — then back in the Big Apple.

Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday & Wednesday 6/7-8/2016: Giant Meteor Edition

Moon continues through today in Cancer, seeking to fulfill a need for emotional/homeland security. It opposed Pluto at 4:05AM ET, infusing the morning with a power play or other emotional catharsis. At 3:20PM ET, an upset or other revelation is likely to present itself, as the Moon is challenged by rebel Uranus. At 8:18PM ET Moon goes void on an easy alignment with Mars, facilitating action that is carefully and methodically thought out. Otherwise, put a sock in it.

The Moon enters regal Leo at 2:47AM ET on WEDNESDAY. During the void we are advised to roll with the twists, flakes and other crises that may derail efforts to move forward in a straight line. Upsets favoring the underdog are common during voids.

There are no exact aspects to the Moon on Wednesday. We’re on cruise control with that Leo Moon, seeking to shine, shine, shine — with ever so much entitlement. Personally, I prefer the side of Leo that needs to play. What about you? Choose and act accordingly. And be mindful of the opposition between Mercury and retrograde Mars, exact on Thursday at 1:01PM ET, suggesting — as noted yesterday — a stubborn clash and release of (frustrated) action.

And now, the news.

Last night on an apt meet-up between the Sun and Venus (women) in Gemini, a sign that needs to be the smartest kid in the room,  the Associated Press declared that Hillary Clinton had enough delegates to clinch the nomination. How intensely clever can the AP be? Despite the fact that the delegates surveyed in the AP poll will not actually vote until July 25th. Despite the fact that the six primary elections being held today aren’t over. Despite the fact — and here is the real abuse of power, oh AP media giant — that by announcing a winner in the presidential race, many voters may feel there’s no reason for their choice to be counted. Even though there are other elections being held today — it’s not all about the nominee for President.

Therefore, if you live in New Jersey, California, Montana, New Mexico, North Dakota and South Dakota, get thee to the polls! Make your voice count! Even if your candidate has already been declared the winner. And be prepared for a few twists and flakes after 8:18PM ET. Remember: if you don’t vote, somebody else will.

Next year I’m thinking that as soon as the Oscar votes are tabulated, the press should announce the winners, even if the votes are counted the day before the actual ceremony. Whaddaya say?

This concludes the public service portion of this forecast.

Astrologically, Bernie Sanders is a week away from the third hit of transiting Jupiter to his Virgo Sun, suggesting the potential for expansion and reward. Transiting Uranus in Aries conjunct his Mars suggests an intensified need for action– possibly rebellious. Transiting Mars may be hitting his (probable) Scorpio Ascendant next week, too — echoing a need for action. On July 18th and 19th, we see reward and action potentials again. The downside potential of Jupiter transits is wretched excess and/or bombast. Again, its up to the individual to choose how to apply the potential.

We do not have a confirmed birth time for Hillary Clinton.  With the 8:02AM time that many astrologers do use, there is not much exact  tension in her horoscope this month or next, save for a challenging aspect between Mars (action, assertiveness) and a point in the horoscope which refers to meetings with other people and the need to work together for a common goal. Ever wonder what Hillary Clinton was like when she was 22? Today Wellesley College released excerpts of her commencement speech from 1969.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the aisle, let the record show that sudden or forced alliances made when Mars is retrograde (as it has been since April 17th) often have their own special brand of challenges, as people like Lindsey Graham and other Republicans opting to support their presumptive nominee (warts and all) are now discovering.

File this under last week’s potential for “women of steel” and/or “harsh treatment of women” to make news, suggested by tough taskmaster Saturn opposing Venus. Also file under Mars, retrograding back through Scorpio, forcing a provocative take on nitty-gritty Scorpio issues we might prefer not to examine, i.e., sex, death and money (debt).  Brock Turner was a freshman at Stanford when he was caught — drunk — behind a dumpster — sexually assaulting a drunk woman who was also unconscious and thus unable to give consent. Last week he was sentenced — to six months in a county jail. Outrage ensued, and the woman he assaulted read a 23-page letter in court, detailing the nitty-gritty awfulness of her experience. The letter has gone viral. Mr. Turner’s father, who may live on the banks of a river in Egypt, defended his son’s sentence as apt for “20 minutes of action,” making matters even worse. The judge is facing a recall. Today — finally — Mr. Turner’s mugshot was published around the world, replacing earlier images of him taken in a more innocent time.

Meanwhile, John Oliver exposed the nitty-gritty cesspool known as the debt collection business. Reflecting the expansive and benevolent potential of Sun, Venus and Jupiter in a powerful connection with one another, he also made TV history with the biggest giveaway ever: forgiving $15 million dollars of medical debt at a cost of only $60,000.  Oh and let’s not forget the Neptune portion of current planetary patterns. Neptune refers to healing, charity, and other intangibles — including television.  Watch the whole segment here.

A couple of days after Mars dipped back into Scorpio, Poland announced it would revive efforts to extradite Roman Polanski, who fled the United States in 1978, just as he was about to be sentenced for having sex with a 13-year-old girl. Last fall, Poland announced it would not be extraditing Mr. Polanski — so why this sudden reversal?

Looking at Mr. Polanski’s horoscope, it takes less than a second to see transiting Uranus at play, squaring his emotionally intense Moon-Pluto hook-up in Cancer, which in turn opposes conflicting-avoiding Mars in Libra. Sudden upsets to his public status and a potential total overturning of the tables — now and into next year. Retrograde Mars is squaring his regally entitled Leo Sun, suggesting an outburst of energy — possibly an attack. Transiting Uranus hit his 15 Libra Ascendant and 19 Cancer Midheaven earlier this year — suggesting more disruptions of his status.

Transiting Pluto, now at 17 Capricorn, has also been part of the tear-down process — and it is far from finished. If transiting Jupiter does not gift him with the biggest stroke of luck in the century when is meets up with his Jupiter-Venus conjunction in August, he may well be sent back to the United States to face resistance-is-futile Pluto as it crosses his Ascendant by solar arc and transit this summer and into next year. I’m betting on Pluto and Uranus to work its magic, much as it has been working through Bill Cosby’s horoscope.

Where are transiting Uranus and Pluto in your horoscope? Find out so you can plan a strategy for making the best of this potential for emancipation and empowerment. Here’s how to schedule a personal consultation.

Thank you for reading this forecast.
