Monday 10/14/2019: Sneak Peek at a Possibly Short Work Week

If your Monday began with a twist, flake or other slow start, chalk it up to the Moon being void in Aries until 12:24 PM ET. After that, when the Moon entered Taurus, you had no excuse for not turning your inspiration into a materially secure and comfortable form.

We all woke up to the ripple effect of today’s 3:34 AM ET square between the Libra Sun (leaders, heart, ego) and Pluto (power, corruption, breakdown; news from underground). Did Austin’s Parsley Energy just pay $1.65 billion to acquire Denver’s Jagged Peak Energy? Why yes — yes, it did.  And Iran made “a huge natural gas discovery that could power Tehran for 16 years.” Great! What will they do in Year 17?

Meanwhile, Mercury is digging for more dirt in Scorpio, in a cooperative alignment with Saturn. That was exact early this morning. The rest of the week goes like this:

  • TUESDAY:  More Moon in Taurus, mostly cruising without speedbumps, though a clash of mindset may erupt around 8:33 PM ET — see how that plays out during the Democratic Debate (which starts at 8 PM ). Visionary thinking is supported, courtesy of a harmony between Mercury and Neptune at 6:45 PM ET.
  • WEDNESDAY:  Chill, chill, chill, as the Moon goes void at 4:37 AM ET — not to enter the next sign — Gemini — until 10:30 PM ET. As Moon voids go, a Taurus Moon offers greater potential for focused accomplishment than most. Still, you may need a push to get started. Once you do, routine projects are favored; roll with any twists or flakes that disrupt your efforts to move forward in a straight line.
  • THURSDAY: A Gemini Moon drives the day with a need for chit-chat and to be the smartest kid in the room. Who knew it and when did they know it? Film at 11!
  • FRIDAY:  Note your dreams in the morning, as Moon squares Neptune at 5:26 AM ET. Double check the directions and look twice when crossing the street. A face-off between the newsy Gemini Moon and Jupiter around lunchtime may blow a tidbit out of proportion — or simply add an extravagant spin. Moon goes void at 10:14 PM ET and enters Cancer on…
  • SATURDAY:  at 6:43 AM ET. A Cancer Moon needs to focus on home and homeland security. A home-cooked meal or other domestic project is favored. You may have been especially persuasive or perspicacious in recent days, as Mercury harmonizes with Pluto at 6:17 PM ET. Good for getting the word out, especially if you’re an investigative reporter. Something especially assertive may be triggered, as Mars arrives at 10 Libra, activating the July 2 solar eclipse. If you have a planet around 10 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn, you may be triggered, too, especially as we approach…
  • SUNDAY: …at 1:35 AM ET, when Mars squares the Moon. Saturn challenges the emotional security needs of the Cancer Moon around 9:29 AM ET; Pluto pushes feelings to extremes aournd 8:07 PM ET. In between, there’s an exact harmony between Venus and Saturn at 9:58 AM ET, which suggests a conservative approach in matters of money, women and aesthetics.

And now, the news.

I know of more than one astrologer who opined that October was a month for concern, as P45 was likely to push boundaries so far that we might be engaged in a military conflict. Not quite, so far…but still…. P45’s decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria has not only led to senseless deaths of declared allies (the Kurds), but the release of hundreds of people with “suspected links” to the Islamic State — all of which happened over the weekend. Sun square Pluto power plays involving heads of state indeed. The other part of the P45 October forecast is that — as they were in February and May —  boundary-pushing actions were not likely to result in consequences just yet. For example, not only does Deutsche Bank not have P45’s tax returns (an apparent anomaly, as reported over the weekend), but the good folks at the National Enquirer and American Media allegedly shredded whatever scandalous documents it might have had in its safe.

We will see what there is to see in late January/early February.

Meanwhile, the front-page story of Sunday’s NYT was a massive investigative report solving the mystery of who bombed four hospitals in May, in order to “crush the last pockets of resistance to President Bashar al-Assad.” Because really — who would bomb a hospital? The NYT reporters concluded beyond a doubt that Russia was the culprit. In other news, Vladimir Putin is in Saudi Arabia today for the first time in 12 years. Power plays and oil deals: apt for current planetary patterns.

Elsewhere, awesome power was on display in the world of sports, especially for women. Stunning Venus opposition Uranus upsets occurred as Kenyan Brigid Kosgei smashed the women’s world record at the Chicago Marathon, just hours after fellow Kenyan Elius Kipchoge (unofficially) smashed the men’s world record with a time of under two hours.  World records were smashed by gymnast Simone Biles  and tennis champ Coco Gauff.

File under “Awesome Power” that’s actually “Much Ado About Nothing”: during this morning’s Moon void, there was much pomp and cirumstance in Parliament, as the Queen gave a speech that was actually written by PM Boris Johnson (and other ministers)  who don’t even have a majority. The Guardian called it “a show without substance.” Right. Next!

Pluto refers to purges. These two purges have silver linings — because they were thwarted. In Kentucky, a judge ordered 165,000 “inactive” voters restored to the rosters. In Ohio, 20% of 235,000 voters were found to be on a list to be purged in error.    Which makes it a good time to invite you to check your voter registration status — and share this link with all your friends.  There are many reasons why a voter might purged; one reason is failure to consistently vote. There are elections next month. Vote!

Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 11/25/2013: A Rosy Sun-Neptune Square; Sneak Peek at the Week

Good Morning!

OK, show of hands to these questions: how many of you experienced yesterday as a bit of a wandering, dreamy detour? Any unusual twists in your everyday routine? Have any trouble getting motivated to plunge into a planned project? Did any of you suspect that the Moon might be void of course — i.e., drifting along without a clear sense of direction? That was my suspicion almost immediately upon waking. I’m often at the local greenmarket bright and early, but yesterday was not the case. And the usual greenmarket was anything but, given that a fierce wind had blown away most of the awnings covering the stalls. I couldn’t get the fennel seed-laced scone I’d been looking forward to having all week, as the scone lady was so frustrated by the destructive wind — and that it was 25 degrees outside — that she packed up all the scones and was leaving by the time I got there.

By then my suspicion was a conviction: the Moon had to be void — and when I finally got home after a afternoon of wandering nowhere, I checked the astro-logical calendar and confirmed that as of 3:59AM ET on Sunday until 7:11AM ET on Monday, the Moon is void in Leo. Best use of this energy (if you’re reading this before 7:11 AM) is to chill, play, shine — and help others shine, too. Any crises that crop up in this time period is likely much ado about nothing.

A sense of dreamy wandering was — and still is — amplified all the more by another pattern exact on Sunday: a challenge between the Sun in high-flying Sagittarius and nebulous Neptune in Pisces. When Neptune is prominent, rose-colored glasses are often appealing. So is music, art, healing, spirits of all kinds, visions, fantasy, glamor and peace. On the flip side: deception and bewilderment. You would feel this planetary pattern more personally if you were born a few days into Pisces, Gemini, Virgo or Sagittarius…or if you have a planet or angle around 2 degrees of any of those signs.

The rose-colored glow will likely still be present when you wake up on Monday. Although the Moon will be in earthy, discerning, perfection-seeking Virgo, it too, will be challenged by Neptune — at 12:21PM ET. At 2:28PM ET, we’ll have the 3rd Quarter Moon, suggesting a challenge or resolution regarding the New Moon agenda you set on November 3rd. That’s when some of the glow may fade, to be replaced by the serious thinking that a hook-up between mental Mercury and stern Saturn suggests, exact at 8:55PM ET.

Your Moon voids for the week: Wednesday: 6:44AM ET – 5:00PM ET; go with the flow if you’re traveling that day. Same goes for Friday: 6:14 AM ET – 11:03PM ET; now you have an astro-logical reason to skip those Black Friday sales, as the Moon void rules suggest you won’t get much use out of whatever you buy.

Meanwhile, I promised you a pile of dirt uncovered, courtesy of last week’s cooperative connection between mental Mercury and Pluto, Lord of the Underworld. So what happened? How about this story: “Two Surprises In DNA of Boy Found Buried in Siberia” (the boy in question is 24,000 years old). Shades of nebulous Neptune in that story, too. How so? Because Neptune works to dissolve whatever it touches, including ideas of separation. “We are all connected” is another way of expressing Neptune — through empathy, telepathy and understanding that we all come from the same Source.

On Friday, during a nostalgic, patriotic Moon in Cancer and healing, rose-colored potential of the approaching Sun-Neptune challenge, we were all connected by the 50th anniversary of the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.  On Sunday, the empowered communication and synergy of last week was reflected in this story — also on a healing, we-are-all-connected theme: an accord that would “temporarily freeze much of Iran’s nuclear program”.  Finally, speaking of nuclear, empowered communication and synergistic action, on Thursday, the Senate voted to change a key rule that will allow most executive and judicial nominees to be approved by a simple majority. Which means no more filibustering these nominations by members of an opposing party. Yes, I am bewildered by the use of the term “nuclear option” to describe this rule change, too. And as you might suspect, the minority party in the Senate did not like this rule change one bit, even though twelve members of this party expressed very different sentiments back in 2003 and 2005.

You can sort through a lot over the next two days, and Thanksgiving offers plenty of potential for expressing gratitude. Get out there and have a great day — and when you need some personal, astro-logical insights, here’s how to reach me.




Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday 10/10/2012: Lines Blurred; Edges Softened

Another day of potentially deep thoughts and revelations, possibly involving material facts about a spiritual world. Or a chance to make a dream a reality, no matter how unreal the dream may be.

Today’s two big planetary patterns involve — first —  a communicative aspect between mental Mercury in dirt-digging, cut-to-the-chase Scorpio and ruthless Pluto in Capricorn. That can be intense, and it can also be quite candid in all areas involving your interactions with others today. If you are doing research, more power to you.

The second patterns involves Saturn in Scorpio (law, authority, structure) in a most excellent alignment with nebulous Neptune (faith, illusion, dreams) in Pisces, the sign Neptune rules. This aspect will occur again on June 11 and July 19, 2013. So whatever seeds you’re planting now to make a dream reality may be flowering in early summer. You are especially affected by this pattern if you were born during the first few days of Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.

In the headlines, I am fascinated to note this startling study that appears to conclude that more and more Americans are abandoning their faith (Neptune) — or at least the structures (Saturn) where they might practice it. Healing is another Neptune keyword, and also on the front page we see this item: “New Style of Health Care Emerges to Fill Hospital’s Void”. Look for more key developments on these themes in June and July of next year.

Neptune softens the hard edge of Saturn’s usual need for stern discipline and no exceptions to the letter of the law. Look for empathy and compassion to be more prominent in the headlines — and perhaps noticeably so in persons striving to win our collective vote of confidence in a just a few weeks…

Don’t forget that the regal Leo Moon goes void at 5:40PM ET, not to enter nitpicky Virgo at 3:32PM ET on Thursday, setting the tone for the next exciting debate. Get it off your desk before the void if you can. If you are new to the forecast and do not understand Moon voids, click here.
