Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 12/14/2015: Late New Moon Post; Sneak Peek at the Week; Leonardo DiCaprio, Right on Scehdule

Good Morning!

I hope you accomplished much over the weekend, driven by the Moon’s ingress into Capricorn at 1:47AM ET on Saturday. The need to make things happen could have flowed beautifully that day; maybe with a few bumps early Sunday AM ET, as the Moon made its weekly clash with disruptive Uranus and Pluto, followed by Mars — all before 11AM ET.

After that, an easy flow resumed, with festive spirits perhaps lifted by a connection to expansive Jupiter at 6:07PM ET. Moon went void at that time – wandering without specific direction until 7:59AM ET on Monday. So if you’re reading this early Monday on the East Coast, and you are having trouble getting focused as you head to the office, trust that the energy will feel more engaged soon — and big!

Make the most of this week. It offers New Moon energy to move things forward — with an expansive vision and a potentially dreamy, healing aesthetic. How so? This New Moon happened on Friday in Sagittarius, an expansive, pie-in-the-sky sign if there ever was one. Big, bold, collective beliefs and opinions are expanded exponentially by a charge from Jupiter — exact Monday at 10AM ET. If you have a planet or angle around 20 degrees of Virgo, Sagittarius, Gemini or Pisces, you are likely feeling the lift more than others.

The dreamy vision comes courtesy of an communicative flow between Mercury (mindset) and Neptune, exact Monday at 2:40PM ET. The healing and/or idealized aesthetic is suggested by the afterglow of Friday’s easy flow between Venus (beauty, women, values, money) and Neptune (fantasy, empathy, spirits of all kinds). There’s even a potentially disruptive, quirky, macho and/or humanitarian element to it all, in the aftermath of Thursday evening’s face-off between Mars in Libra (partnership) and Uranus in Aries (freedom of the individual). And let’s not forget the big upheaval potential of an increasing tension between Uranus and Pluto.

Let’s pause for a minute and consider a few headlines reflecting the themes outlined noted above. In the category of big, bold, collective belief — with a healing vision and humanitarian thrust — how about the “major leap for mankind” a.k.a. the Paris climate deal that was announced over the weekend? Sounds pretty awesome on paper, though some scientists see more of the “pie-in-the-sky” potential suggested by planetary patterns than hardcore action.

As for hardcore action, sprinkled  with idealized Venus-Neptune pixie-dust and emotionally detached, Mars-Uranus techno-geekness, consider this item entitled, “Sex, Love & Robots: Is This the End of Intimacy?”   Looks that way to me. Over on the homepage of the NYT, we find these planetary patterns reflected in an article about one of the first transgendered women in New York to have her hi-tech surgery paid by Medicaid. And if that’s not controversial enough for you, consider this NYT “Modern Love” essay entitled “The Heart Said Yes; The Horoscope Said No”. It’s actually wonderful how many positive reader comments the article received. And we will forgive the NYT fact-checkers who didn’t correct the essayist when she referred to Rahu and Ketu as planets, when they are in fact two axis points of the Moon — but significant nonetheless.

OK, back to the rest of the week.

But first — a thought about your holiday shopping list (you can still get a gift for Hannukah — they won’t care if it’s a little late). Why not gift some lucky someone with a personal astrological consultation? Isn’t that a fabulous idea? Here’s the 411 on the many options available, including reports and those Really Useful Mercury Retrograde Survival Guide Bookmarks that would make such super stocking stuffers, especially with Mercury turning retrograde on January 5th, 2016 — you have been warned.

Back to the week.

We’ll have a Moon void on Wednesday between 2:17AM ET and 12:45PM ET — no big deal for most of the Americas. Stick to routine matters; chill out over any crisis that erupts (as it is likely much ado about nothing); avoid making impulse purchases. Get back to work on Thursday and then chill on Friday, when the Moon will be void between 10:14AM ET and 4:25PM ET. Just go with the flow of any twists, delays or other upsets that may derail your efforts to move forward in a straight line. If you do not know what a Moon void is, shoot me an email; I’d be happy to explain.

During Friday’s six-hour void, we’ll be processing the challenge that may be presented by the First Quarter Moon, exact at 10:14AM ET. We will also be feeling the mental buzz of Mercury as it makes contact with 1) Pluto on Saturday at 1:54PM ET; 2) Uranus on Sunday at 10:07PM ET. Words and commerce that disrupts the status quo, likely revealing some bit of potent dirt is my take on it. You’ll be more affected by Mercury’s supercharged action if you have a planet or point halfway through Capricorn, Aries, Cancer or Libra.

And now, a little more news.

Other reflections of disruptive planetary patterns suggesting headlines involving gender: 1) in Saudi Arabia, women went to the polls for the first time ever — and 17 women were elected to public office.  2) in Oklahoma, an all-white jury found a police officer guilty of multiple counts of rape. His targets: African-American women. Read the article if you do not understand why that point is significant.  After over two years of seeing horrific accounts of  abused sexual energy (thank you Saturn in Scorpio) in the headlines, perhaps we can now argue that the raised awareness is beginning to effect change. 3) Angela Merkel was named Time Magazine’s Person of the Year — the first time in 29 years that a woman has received that honor, how depressing is that? What’s interesting is that 29 years ago, Saturn was in Sagittarius — around the same degree it is right now. Wonder how that relates to the horoscope of Time Magazine? Wish we had a birth time for Angela Merkel, too. Oh , well.

Meanwhile…

So pleased to see Leonardo DiCaprio nominated for a Golden Globe this year. His horoscope was hot back in 2013 (when he was also nominated for the award). Two years ago, I wrote

Solar arcs and transits in DiCaprio’s horoscope over the next 2-4 years suggest increased public prominence and acclaim. The synchronicity with Wilson’s horoscope is faaaaaascinating –I could write more — but for now,  I’m dashing this off — and we’ll see how this film project develops over the next two years. Di Caprio should do very well, regardless…

Mr. DiCaprio also made BIG headlines in April, as noted here.  Isn’t astrology amazing? What’s going on in your horoscope?

Dashing this off again — and wishing you a splendidly productive week.

Thank you for reading this forecast and sharing it with all of your friends and relations. Referrals never fail to make my day!

 

 

 

Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday & Wednesday: Mars-Pluto-Uranus Fallout; More on Donald Trump

Carry on, driven by the intense focus of the Moon in Scorpio (where it has been since 6:26AM ET on Monday). Get it off your desk today if you can, as the Moon goes void Wednesday at 1:39AM ET, not to enter the next sign — Sagittarius — until 5:25PM ET. Remember the Moon void if you find yourself overwhelmed by a twist, delay or other crisis. Such events are usually much ado about nothing, though it doesn’t mean that nothing is likely to happen. But let’s cover Tuesday first.

On Tuesday at 9:38PM ET the fiery Sagittarius Sun makes an easy connection to Uranus in pioneering Aries. Uranus is tech-savvy, eccentric and usually up for overturning the status quo. This aspect has been in effect for a few days now. One news items that caught my eye was about one of the founders of the Tea Party, described here as a “firebrand”. Her name is Debbie Dooley and her tech-savvy, eccentric, rebellious thing is her passion for — get this — solar power. A Green Tea Partier? Why not.

Back to Wednesday. Other than the mostly-all day Moon void, Mercury leaves Sagittarius and enters Capricorn at 9:35PM ET. Mercury in Capricorn puts a no-nonsense, strategic, earthy and practical spin on ideas and communication. No more of this Mercury in Sagittarius Big Giant Philosophical Opinion That Really Can’t Be Proven Because It’s An Opinion (we hope). Mercury will be in Capricorn until January 1st; it will turn RETROGRADE in Aquarius on January 5th, and then move back into Capricorn on January 8th…where it will stay until February 13th.

On Thursday, action hero Mars will oppose Uranus at 8:30PM ET. More tech break throughs — perhaps in aviation and in the cosmos. We’ll also have the potential for more outbursts of energy in matters related to action, war, firearms, rebellions, seismic stuff, the usual…

The New Moon begins at 5:29AM ET in Sagittarius, accompanied by a sensitive, artsy and potentially healing flow between Venus and Neptune (exact at 1:14AM ET). Perhaps we’ll see some rosy resolutions as the UN Climate Change Conference wraps in Paris, especially in light of the disruptive news from Beijing this week, as the city shut down under its first-ever air quality red alert.

I’ll write more on the New Moon in a future post; know that it will go void on Friday at 11:06AM ET, not to enter Capricorn until 1:47AM ET. Sounds like a good day for an early holiday party, with no consequences for overly indulgent festivities…merry, merry….happy, happy…and for whatever holiday(s) you are celebrating this season.

And now, the news.

Guns and more guns — certainly in the U.S., anticipated by planetary pattern noted in the last forecast. Must we talk about them now? Well, yes — because that’s what made headlines over the weekend, especially at the NYT — the paper of record — and that is the conceit of this forecast.  At the New York Times, the editors did something they hadn’t done in decades: publish an editorial opinion on the front page. What was it about? Guns — and a demand for gun control. Why is the U.S. so nuts about guns? Is it something in its horoscope? How about Mars (firearms, action heroes) squared by a the rose-colored fog of Neptune?  Could that reflect the family Christmas card photo released over the weekend by Nevada state assemblywoman Michelle Fiore, with several generations decked out in  blood-red T-shirts, jeans and packing assorted varieties of heat?

Meanwhile, gun stocks are up in the wake of President Obama’s Sunday night speech on the subject of terrorism. Guns made news at the Supreme Court yesterday, when it declined 7-2 to hear a challenge to one city’s assault weapons ban. The dissenting justices were Messrs. Scalia and Thomas, FYI.

Mars in touch with Pluto — the major pattern of last weekend — suggests more than just guns. It suggests the potential for regeneration and also that which we consider masculine. The timing of this headline is epic, if you ask me: “Penis Transplants Being Planned to Help Wounded Troops”.  Astrology is amazing.

The Mars-Pluto pattern affected Donald Trump’s intrinsically macho horoscope. With his natal Mars in Leo and on his Leo Ascendant, we could expect a regal personal projection, driven by a seething sense of entitlement. The fixed star Capulus conjoins his 24 Taurus Midheaven, the point of career and public status. Capulus refers to “male sexual energy,” and this webpage offers a ton of observations from various sources on how it may be reflected in a horoscope. Transiting Mars, Pluto and Uranus are making contact with Mr. Trump’s natal Jupiter, suggesting a potential for expansive opportunity and resources.

Until yesterday, coverage of Mr. Trump’s campaign was relegated to the entertainment section of The Huffington Post. After his comments over the weekend that the US should ban all Muslims from entering the country, HuffPo decided to take him seriously — check out its editorial explaining why it is moving him to the politics section. Two other observations about Mr. Trump. First, he has Mercury square Neptune, suggesting no small amount of idealism and/or delusion and/or fantasy. Second, his horoscope continues to be quite strong from now into 2016…and 2017…and 2018….
