Astro-logical Forecast for Friday 7/15/2016 & the Weekend: High-Flying & Hyperactive, With a Bit of Mick

It’s been a tough week. TGIF!

Moon entered Sagittarius early Friday at 5:14AM ET, suggesting a lift from the intensely brooding potential of the Moon in Scorpio. Harmonious aspects among the Moon, Mercury and Venus are ripe for playful and creative expressions of righteous opinions. Throughout the weekend you are invited to take a gamble or a gambol, pushing boundaries for better, not for worse — with certain caveats.

First, note that the Moon will meet up with heavy Saturn at 1:45AM ET on Saturday — followed by a challenge from Neptune at 4:26AM ET. Note your dreams and the potential for a wee bit of  freakazoid wigginess. At 9:31AM ET, the “other shoe” potential of a disruptive square between the homeland security-seeking Cancer Sun and rebel Uranus will be exact. However, Sun-Uranus manifestations often show up ahead of schedule. More on that in a minute.

Regal idealism and a flood of efficiently focused physical and/or militant drive are certain potential, suggested by the Sun and Mars in perfect harmony, exact at 11:45PM ET. If you need to make a big push on a project, this would be a good time to do it — weekend be damned. As noted at the beginning of the week, my hope is that we see these energies applied in the headlines for better, not for worse…but reality suggests otherwise. You can still make positive use of this energy flow in your own personal world.

On SUNDAY the Sag Moon goes void on a friendly alignment with Uranus at 4:57am ET. Here’s an opportunity to push boundaries even further, enjoying the wandering trek. At 3:33PM ET, Moon enters Capricorn, seeking to get down to business, using people and things for the pleasure of its own ambition and status. No sleeping in on Monday.

And now, the news.

On Monday, I wrote this:

At 9:30AM ET on Saturday, the Cancer Sun will be challenged by rebel Uranus, possibly reflecting the other shoe dropping after the intense power plays of last Thursday’s opposition between the Sun and Pluto. Also on Saturday just before midnight ET (11:45PM), we’ll have an easy flow between the Sun and Mars, operating efficiently in Scorpio. May it be used for better, not for worse.

On Wednesday, I wrote this:

Thursday evening, however, is marked by a meet-up between the Scorpio Moon and Mars at 6:22PM ET, suggesting focused and penetrating action re: that Scorpio need for mastery. Moon then immediately goes void, not to enter the next sign — Sagittarius — until 5:14AM ET on FRIDAY. Chill on Thursday evening.

Was I thinking that Thursday’s Moon-Mars meet-up would trigger an outburst of ruthless violence we’d then see in the headlines? Yes, especially given the continuation of other anguishing and erratic patterns noted in earlier forecasts, i.e., the uneasy alignment between Mars and Uranus, and Saturn/Pluto at the prominent Aries Point. And if you’ve been reading this forecast long enough, you may have been thinking the same thing, too. Hopefully you also remembered that there is always a positive application of even the most disturbing planetary patterns — and then you acted accordingly.

One of the “other shoes” I expected we’d see dropping before the weekend manifested in the horrible outburst of destruction in Nice last night at 10:30PM. The lethal focus of the Moon-Mars meet-up is almost exactly square the Ascendant in the chart for the event. This afternoon, headlines are ablaze with news of an attempted military coup in Turkey…where martial law has been imposed.

Meanwhile, in last night’s Moon void, Donald Trump postponed today’s 11AM ET press conference, in which he was supposedly going to announce his running mate, Mike Pence. Instead, he confirmed the pick on Twitter, followed by the release of his new campaign logo — one of the few lighter moments in a heavy news day. As logos go, it’s an epic fail…yet totally suitable for a man with Mars in Leo conjunct his Ascendant and the Fixed Star Capulus on the Midheaven. Translation: the man needs to project an image of macho, with a reputation for pure, unadulterated male sexual energy (that’s Capulus). With the Moon in Sagittarius today, trine to Mercury and Venus in Leo, social media had a field day creatively expressing its collective opinions and edits.

Will TrumPence be asked about the logo at the official press conference on Saturday at 11AM ET? Or about exactly when they believe America was once great, so we know to what decade this dynamic duo would like us to return? 1950? 1850? 1250? I jest a bit, but astrological patterns suggest this team needs to be taken seriously. Trump’s horoscope is in a formidable period of development, as as any astute astrologer observed since well over a year ago.  One day perhaps mainstream media editors will catch on, replacing their perplexed pundits with people who have a real inside track.

Meanwhile, speaking of male sexual energy, guess who else has the Fixed Star Capulus prominently placed in his horoscope? Mick Jagger!! His 23 degree Taurus Moon is exactly conjunct Capulus, and since the beginning of June transiting Mars has been opposing his Moon at 23 Scorpio. Today it was announced that Mr. Jagger and his latest flame, 29 year old  Melanie Hamrick are expecting a child. It will be his 8th child, on her first Saturn return.  Lots of other things happening in his horoscope, too…

Isn’t astrology amazing? When you want to understand why things happen when they do…or why people are the way they are, astrology offers an extraordinarily accurate perspective. If you’d like to find out why you are the way you are and when things are likely to happen for you, I’d be delighted to share insights in a personal consultation.

Thank you for reading the forecast.

 

Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday & Thursday 6/29-30/2016: This Space Intentionally Left Blank

The dust of the start of a volatile week settles somewhat with the Moon’s ingress into Taurus at 6:03AM ET. A Taurus Moon seeks stability, comfort and security. It is often resistant to change, preferring to keep things “the way they ought to be,” whatever that means to a Moon in Taurus mind. A harmonious connection between the nurturing Cancer Sun and the sensual Taurus Moon at 8:29PM ET suggests a easy flow of matters “touchy-feely.”  Taking pleasure in creature comforts — with gratitude — would be an apt part of this day. And now I’m laughing because a discussion has just popped up on my Facebook feed about the expression “you can’t have your cake and eat it, too.” Synchronicity!

Meanwhile, thoughts and communication related to emotional/family/homeland security are likely to be prominent, as Mercury enters Cancer. Regular readers of this forecast will recall that planets at very beginning of Aries, Cancer, Capricorn and Libra need prominence. Also prominent today — but for other reasons — is Mars, planet of men, action and aggression. Mars is pulling greater focus because it is at a dead stop (from our perspective on Earth), about to turn direct at 7:38PM ET. Planets pull focus when they change direction.  If you were born around the 15th of November, August, May or February…or if you have a planet or angle around 22-24 Scorpio, Taurus, Aquarius or Leo, you’re feeling the heat more than most in June and July.

Humming in the background is an approaching face-off between Venus (women, money, arts, social expression) and Pluto (resources, power, perspective, the murky depths), exact at 11:29PM ET. This adds another dose of emotional intensity to the mix, potentially clearing the air and changing perspective, but not without a power struggle.

Keep ego and outbursts in check, and you can have a productive THURSDAY, using the Taurus Moon’s consolidating energy to advance your plans for world domination. Be aware that the Moon goes void at 8:19PM ET on a face-off with Mars. The Moon-Mars pattern suggests tenacity or a stubborn clash of will, for better or for worse. The void suggests you roll with any flakes or twists, and CHILL over “crises” that may crop up. Moon enters Gemini at 7:44AM ET on FRIDAY…and I can’t believe that half the year is over.

And now, the news.

Speaking of the above Venus-Pluto face-off, the Washington Post reports:

There’s great news for women who dread that annual pelvic exam (i.e. basically everyone). On Tuesday, a panel made up of medical experts that advise the government said that there’s not enough evidence to support doing them for women who are healthy and not pregnant.

It could be great news. Although right now, these annual exams are covered in all insurance policies as being medically necessary. Will women get a big break on their insurance premiums if it is decided that they must now pay out-of-pocket going forward? Women, resources, perspective. Venus-Pluto. Is less really more?

Mars at a standstill in Scorpio, ruthless and effective — in an uncomfortable relationship with sudden, erratic Uranus. Moon in rambunctious Aries, meeting up with Uranus and discordant Eris on Tuesday. We could see the potential for destruction in the headlines, starting with the suicide bombing at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport. Then there’s the story of former Colts running back  Zurlon Tipton accidentally shooting himself  at a car dealership.   Athletes, guns, accidents and cars — how much more Mars-Uranus can you get? Mr. Tipton did not survive.

Adding Venus-Pluto and a prominent Mercury (language, communication) to the mix we have  “The Marines Just Took ‘Man’ Out of 19 Job Titles, and People are Losing Their Minds.”   Add Saturn in Sagittarius’s need to control opinions, comedic and otherwise, and we have another ex-football player, Paul Gascoigne,  standing trial in the UK for allegedly making a racist joke at a…comedy show.

Earlier this week we were talking about the astrological symbolism of Eris and its current tension between Mars and Uranus:

…Eris, named for the Goddess of Discord, discussed in the April 2016 New Moon forecast. In the language of astrology, one manifestation of Eris would be outrage expressed by those who do not feel they have a place at the table. It would be the “have-nots” rising up against the perceived “haves.”  Eris will be in a tight meet-up — a conjunction — with rebel Uranus into 2017.

Today’s NYT has an op-ed by Bernie Sanders, whose Virgo Sun was graced by expansive Jupiter for the third and final time on June 18th. An op-ed published in the NYT is pretty expansive, don’t you think? When Senator Sanders announced his campaign last year, the strong potential for his social expression and action to heat up this summer (and into 2017) was noted. Last year, I was thinking of transiting Uranus supercharging his 22 degree Venus in Libra and 23 degree Mars Rx in Aries. With Eris involved, we can better understand why the Senator is so focused now on expressing outrage over income equality in the world. While he has vowed to vote for Hillary Clinton in November in order to defeat Whatshisname (thank you, peace-keeping Venus in Libra), he has not endorsed her yet.  He is not going to shut up about the wealthiest 62 people in the world having more wealth than half of the world’s population, etc., etc.

Meanwhile, transiting Jupiter (enthusiasm, bloviation, publishing) conjunct Trey Gowdy’s Mercury retrograde at 17 Virgo (“what I think in exacting detail, except for my double agenda”) has coincided with the release of the Absolutely Final Benghazi Report, an 800 page document that cost $7 million to produce.  The report has produced not much of interest, if you read the New York Times, or, if you read the Washington Times:

“There is new information on what happened in Benghazi, and that information should fundamentally change the way you view what happened in Benghazi. And there are recommendations made to make sure it does not happen again,” said Mr. Gowdy, pleading with Americans to read the full report and draw their own conclusions.

Mr. Gowdy then produced another 800 page report with recommendations to make sure that the daily toll of 27 Americans who are killed in gun homicides never happens again, either. All of the pages were blank.

OK, I made that up about Mr. Gowdy producing a second report.  But the “daily toll” stat is true.

In Mrs. Clinton’s horoscope on June 27th, we see a fast-moving, yet significant planetary pattern between the Sun and Moon, suggesting the potential for “seeing the light.”

Thank you for reading this forecast. To schedule a consultation to find out what all of these planetary shifts means for you, here’s the 411.
