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 5/1/2013: Light the Beltane Fires

No break in the action today. The enterprising Capricorn Moon goes void for all of thirteen minutes at 10:07AM ET, on a tense challenge to mental Mercury, suggesting the potential for a brief spat.  That should calm down before noon, with 1) the Moon’s ingress into detached, humanitarian Aquarius and 2) Mercury’s ingress into earthy Taurus, which slows down the impulsive rush-to-judgement thrust brought to you by the past few weeks of Mercury in Aries. Adding depth, potency and the discovery of resources you did not know you had is Pluto’s easy connection to the Sun at 1:33PM ET. It’s a great day for connecting the dots and mingling with your mover and shaker friends, though we may encounter a limitation of some kind when stern Saturn challenges efforts to be socially significant at 11:51PM ET.

So much in the news continuing yesterday’s stubborn opposition between Mars in Taurus and you-better-believe-we-are-going-there Saturn in Scorpio. The morning-after pill is now available without a prescription to girls and women aged 15 and older, just in time for a particularly stubborn and nasty “sex superbug” to make headlines, a bill allowing limited abortion rights is introduced in Ireland and Larry Flynt endorses former South Carolina governor Mark Sanford’s bid for Congress, hailing him as a “great sex pioneer”.

In other news, an ongoing hunger strike — 100 of 166 prisoners held at Gitmo are participating in this militant protest —  has finally drawn the attention of President Obama, who reaffirmed his intention yesterday to close controversial prison. I am overwhelmed by the literal sludge that I’m seeing in the headlines and find my thoughts going across the Pond, where fires were lit in celebration of Beltane. And if it seems as if I’m abruptly ending this forecast because the dynamic energy of this day demands I get moving, it’s a perfect reflection of planetary patterns. Don’t miss a minute of the creative potential this day holds.


Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 7/12/2012: Taurus Has a Dark Side

Moon in Taurus needs to keep things as they are — or as they should be — for the ultimate goal of preserving material security. This is a day to take comfort in food, sweet music and snuggles — assuming said snuggles are available. It is also a day when you — or others around you — may be digging in their heels or stamping their feet like a terrible two year-old and simply refusing to budge…likely over some idealistic perspective that simply can not be discussed in rational terms.

Emotions may run deep and high around 11:34 AM ET, when Moon cozies up to transformational Pluto…and a dramatic clash of mood vs. mind may occur around 8:35PM ET, when the stubborn Moon squares off against mental Mercury in royal Leo. These are potentials, mind you. Hopefully in your own personal world, you’ll apply the steady determination and organizational skills of a Taurus Moon constructively — without the stubborn drama.

Meanwhile, I am already hearing reports of computers and other communication devices and systems on the fritz. That’s your friendly reminder to back up your computers and iPhones in preparation for Mercury turning retrograde on July 14th.

In other news, I was thrilled to hear from the reader who clicked on a recent link posted in this forecast that takes you to a website that tells you if one of the 50 states — and parts of Canada — might be holding money you didn’t even know was owed you. This reader just got a check for $125 — how cool is that?

Headlines that have caught my eye include yesterday’s void-of-course Moon vote in the House of Representatives to repeal the Affordable Care Act. The general rule on events occurring during a void is that they are likely to be of no consequence. We shall see…

General note on the headlines: with Neptune now firmly in the early part of Pisces, it is interesting to see all of these stories of mysterious infections, drugs, oceans, and  oil on the NYT homepage as I type. I expect more of the same over the next thirteen years.

Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 10/14/2010

Presumably you are putting the power of today’s Moon in Capricorn to work by making it happen. The urge to get others on board with your agenda might hit a bit of a snag this afternoon thanks to a challenge between Moon and Mercury (mind, communication, travel). Don’t forget that Venus is retrograde — you’ll have to be extra-conscious of your social interactions and remind yourself to sweeten your demands with a bit of sugar. That might be the additional challenge presented today via today’s First Quarter Moon. Whatever you’re putting out there, feedback may suggest a few adjustments to your Grand Plan.
