I have been sitting with the incredible experience of your gift and knowledge and letting it sift down into my understanding and psyche. It was a powerful time for me. I told a friend, "she is the real deal." I don't say that very often!

Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday 2/26/2014: Dark Side of the Moon

East Coasters and super-early risers on the West Coast: remember that the Capricorn Moon is void for four hours this AM, not to become fully engaged in the next sign, Aquarius, until 9:55AM ET. A twist or detour in your morning routine/commute is suggested, as Moon voids often challenge efforts to move forward in a straight line.

The potential for twists and snafus spills over into the next couple of days, exacerbated by the super-charged buoyancy of jolly Jupiter’s contact with electric Uranus and the Sun…combined with the slooooooooow moving drag of FOUR planets about to change direction: Mercury (mind, travel, communication), Mars (action), Jupiter (expansion) and Saturn (contraction).  What was I writing earlier this week about not knowing if we were coming or going? If in doubt, chill out. Corollary (as seen on my Facebook newsfeed): “A wise man once said nothing”.  Word!

We are in the dark side of the Moon, the end of the lunar cycle. Appropriate actions include wrapping up projects from the past few weeks. There are no exact aspects to the Moon during business hours today, even when it does engage in cerebral, detached, “who’s yer buddy?” Aquarius. The lack of input from other planets, along with the dark Moon, can suggest a listless, restless energy. The New Moon happens at 2:59AM ET on Sunday. Patience, patience, patience….

And now, the news.

Pie-in-the-sky stories reflecting the stunning magic of Jupiter (cosmic sugar daddy) squared by Uranus (lightning bolt), as anticipated? You bet. Here’s a quote from one of them:

“I don’t like to say once-in-a-lifetime for anything, but you don’t get an opportunity to handle this kind of material, a treasure like this, ever,” said veteran numismatist Don Kagin, who is representing the finders. “It’s like they found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.”

What a nice middle-aged couple in California couple actually found was $10 million in gold coins buried on their property. OMG, don’t you wish?

Here’s another:

By any measure, it is a lightning reversal of events…

…in which the National Enquirer was obligated to establish and fund a generous play writing competition as a settlement for publishing outrageous fiction about a friend of actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman. Well, in this planetary weather pattern of heavy nebulous Neptune influences and Mercury retrograde muddling of facts, we expected more than one stunning communication misfire — remember?

Meanwhile, is it a coincidence or conspiracy that when Jupiter was engaged with the Uranus-Pluto square in August 2013, Elon Musk, the man behind the Tesla electric car and other “the future is now” productions, was making headlines? And now today, with Jupiter square Uranus again, Tesla’s stock is soaring

From yesterday: Alec Baldwin was the talk of the town when he penned a lengthy piece in New York Magazine stating that he was retiring from public life. Mr. Baldwin has the Sun at 13 degrees of me-me-me Aries, which will soon (in April) be supercharged by the Cardinal Grand Cross, suggesting a need for emancipation and empowerment.   I suspect that Cross has also been rattling his Libra Moon, which truly needs peace, balance and appreciation from others. This is in spite of a defensive “I do not need anything material from you” posture suggested by a natal Grand Trine among mental Mercury, Saturn and Pluto. Well, horoscopes with seemingly contradictory patterns do make the most fascinating people. Mr. Baldwin’s horoscope suggests he is verrry resourceful, with a mind and communication style that demands and presents substance, is highly imaginative, potentially earthy, bombastic and likely somewhat bewildering (Mercury in Taurus opposing Jupiter-Neptune). A hair-trigger temper is suggested by a volatile Mars-Uranus opposition. Not to mention a need for unconventional social expression that can be way over the top (Venus in humanitarian Aquarius opposing ruthless Pluto).  Cue the Animals, now please

Finally, not at all pleased to note actor/writer/director Harold Ramis passed away yesterday. Three planets in Mr. Ramis’ horoscope have been under pressure from the Uranus-Pluto square, and one of those planets is his natal Saturn. That can be heavy, especially when transiting Saturn is also active. Mr. Ramis starred in Ghostbusters and he directed Groundhog Day, an absolutely must-see film. It’s just so darn witty and wise, and if you pay close attention, you’ll remember exactly what to do in order to have a happy, fulfilling, meaningful life. Seriously.

If that doesn’t work, consider consulting your local astrologer…


Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 6/17/2013: Sneak Peek At the Week

…and we’re off…to the start of a work week with surprisingly few “hard” planetary patterns, compared to what we’ll see in coming weeks…

Moon entered Libra last night at 9:19PM ET, seeking balance and appreciation for its people-pleasing, diplomatic skills. As a Libra Moon tends to think about what it feels, it offers an opportunity for objectivity and rational discourse, even if it has difficulty making a final decision. It’s hard to choose when you can see the merits of both sides! A surprise jolt or emotional power play, however, may be felt between 4 and 7pm ET, when the need to keep the peace and avoid conflict is disrupted by challenges from the never-ending Uranus-Pluto square. At 7:49PM ET, an easy flow to the Moon from glib Mars in Gemini fuels lively discourse and innovative action as a result. Speaking of innovative action, new ways to invent the wheel may be experimented with all day, especially in the tech and outer space sector, as the multi-talented Gemini Mars is supported by  technogeek Uranus. Think outside the box.

There are few Moon voids to derail your efforts to move forward in a straight line this week, so much can be accomplished — and should be accomplished, especially since Mercury will be turning retrograde on June 26th. BACK UP YOUR COMPUTERS AND TECHNOGIZMOS NOW. I don’t want to hear you whingeing that you lost all your data in the volatile weeks of July. You have been warned.

About the voids: we’ve got a brief on on Tuesday at 11:55PM ET until 2:39AM ET Wednesday — no big deal. On Thursday, we’ve got a void starting at 3:16PM ET until 4:31AM ET — that one is significant, as it affects people trying to get things done during business hours. Schedule important meetings and deal closings around it.

This week is dominated by two enthusiastic and expansive connections. First the annual meet-up of the Sun with jolly Jupiter happens on the 19th and makes everything feel oh so good. This is especially true if you were born around the 19th of June, and I hope you Geminis are enjoying the potential comfort, expansion and luck that often accompanies a transit (Jupiter conjunct the natal Sun) that happens every 12 years. The second aspect is a meet-up between Mercury and Venus in Cancer which suggests a certain idealistic outlook and/or spin on issues involving emotional/homeland security, family, foundation, Mom and apple pie. Watch the news for those kinds of stories.

The week concludes with the Summer Solstice early Friday morning, marking yet another turning point in our journey on Spaceship Earth…
