Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday 3/26/2013: Order in the Court

Chag Pesach Semeach!

Such an appropriate week to be celebrating liberation from slavery, given the focus on freedom and independence in current planetary patterns. Even the Obamas hosted a seder, which apparently they’ve done every year since 2008. Who knew?

As reported yesterday, there are no lunar aspects today. Moon is still in Virgo and still void. Does your desk need to be cleaned? Got a closet that needs to be organized? Such tasks can be richly rewarding, and there’s plenty of high-octane energy to attack such projects, with willful Mars in a supportive connection with expansive Jupiter, exact at 6:27AM ET. An early morning workout isn’t a bad idea, either. Really, find a constructive way to blow off some steam.

With the Moon waxing full,  so are emotions.In Virgo, the need to be correct is paramount. Who’s finding fault with you now? Try not to take it personally,  and choose your battles verrrrry carefully. If you’re really on the side of the angels, stand your ground and push for a breakthrough. If not, let it go. Many will be noticing more than the usual stress in relationships this week. See yesterday’s forecast for those most likely to be affected.

Moon enters Libra at 5:32PM ET, shifting the focus from perfection to fairness and integrity in relationship…which could be a challenge, given ruthless Pluto squaring aggressive Mars just before midnight ET. Well, at least you will know where you stand…

 

All of the above make an intriguing backdrop for two major cases to be argued before the Supreme Court today and tomorrow — both involving freedom and equality in relationship; i.e. same-sex marriage. Here’s a historical perspective on the issue — and you’ll note that the article gives 1969 as the start of the gay rights movement. Yes, 1969 — shortly after the Uranus-Pluto conjunction that reflected so much revolution around the globe…and here we are now, with the Uranus-Pluto square.  Astro-logical patterns suggest this is the time to move forward, not backward.

While many are saying that Justice Kennedy will be the decisive vote in a possible 5-4 decision, Justice Antonin Scalia has also been getting press, as some wonder how he will behave as the arguments are presented. Scalia’s horoscope is under pressure  from Mars and the Uranus-Pluto square — specifically, a point that refers to dealings with the public (and how he needs to evolve in this lifetime). Still another point that refers to the potential for combat in relationships is highlighted this week, as follows: “energy helping or upsetting relationship; sexual awareness in partnership; drive for fulfillment” (astrologer Noel Tyl, describing aggressive Mars on the Sun/Moon midpoint). Coincidence or conspiracy?

Meanwhile, an avid reader shared a surreal conversation that happened yesterday, during the Moon void. And you wonder why people ask “Is Mercury retrograde?” during voids…

Calling AT&T tech support this morning, including half hour of hold time…
Me: “Good morning, one of our tv receivers seems to be broken, making a loud buzzing sound and picture is freezing.”
AT&T: “Are you calling about your phone, internet or tv?”
Me: “(see above)”
AT&T: “What seems to be the problem?”
Me: “(see above)”
AT&T: “Your receiver appears to be broken.”
Me: “!”
AT&T: “Please return it in the box provided within 10 days.”
Me: “What box?”
AT&T: “The box the new one comes in. You will be receiving this in 24-48 days.”
Me: “Days?”
AT&T: “Yes, 24-48 hours. Thank you for calling AT&T.”

Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 3/25/2013: Sneak Peek at the Fiery, Feisty Week

There’s an interesting dichotomy in planetary patterns this week. On the one hand, four planets — Sun, Venus, Mars and Uranus — are blazing ahead in feisty, impulsive, inspiring and impatient Aries. Over the next several days, they will be making contact with the rest of their planetary pals in ways which are likely to be experienced as startling/shocking, power-packed, expansive, unconventional and sometime ruthless. The continuing saga of the banking crisis in Cyprus — the latest of a never-ending string of banking crises — is but one example of shocks we may see to the system.

I’ve noticed more sirens than usual here in New York over the past few days. Also many people shouting into their cell phones as they stomp down the street. The taxi on fire last Friday in front of the Hilton was certainly impressive. Be super nice to those born this week, as well as those born during the last week of June, September and November. They are feeling the power surge more than most.

But while the rest of the planets are symbolically bouncing off each other like pinballs, the Moon will be void-0f-course & wandering aimlessly through the cosmos for most of the week, suggesting  much of the action we see may be “all for naught” or much ado about nothing. Here’s the VOC schedule:

Monday 8:45 AM ET – 5:32 PM ET on TUESDAY; Wednesday 2:14PM ET until 8:54PM ET THURSDAY; Friday 4:25PM ET until 11:13PM ET SATURDAY; we’ve got all-day voids on April 1st & 3rd, too.

Monday morning starts off with a burst of organizational energy that is driven to perfection, courtesy of the Moon in meticulous Virgo. Transformation, resources and power plays are themes that will carry through the rest of the day, as Moon goes void at 8:45AM ET on a supportive contact from potent Pluto. The void suggests we find ways to chill, and my big plan is to put together a bookcase that is being delivered, so I can organize my ever-expanding collection of astrology books.

Meanwhile, aggressive Mars in Aries likely has another agenda. The Warrior Planet will touch base with expansive Jupiter at 6:27AM ET on Tuesday, which suggests a healthy does of physical energy for you to expend. A still greater release may arrive around or before 11:44PM ET on Tuesday, as Mars makes a provocative challenge to ruthless Pluto.  Really, this is not the time to pick a fight. Mars-Pluto challenges can be brutal. If you must perform a feat requiring extreme effort — like run a marathon — they can be quite helpful. They are also helpful for a forceful expression of will — but not necessarily pleasant for those on the receiving end. Watch the headlines for stories of saber-rattling and other demonstrations of force. News from underground is also to be expected.

Back to you in the studio…
