“I can't thank you enough for the incredible adventure in astrology. You have that rare gift that certainly all who call themselves astrologers don't possess... you're the real deal!! It seriously blew me away that you were able to not only nail so much from my past (exact times/years certain events took place, along with situations with family, relationships and beyond) but you've already helped with my present! The answers you gave to the specific questions I asked pertaining to important career-related happenings this week have already proven true. I will look forward to an update in a year or so.”

Tuesday 7/11/2017: Sneak Peek at the Rest of the Week; Full Moon in Capricorn Gets Your Goat

Greetings from Los Angeles!

…where I’m filling my calendar up with delightful Avid Readers — so much fun to meet in person! I have a few appointments available until July 18th. Then I’m off to Raleigh, NC.

The work week began with the Moon in super-friendly Aquarius, looking to network, network, network  — and be appreciated for its unique social significance. It travels without much static all day TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY. Such a relief, comparing the jolts we experienced on Sunday, when the Moon clashed with Pluto, Uranus and Mars. More on that in a minute.

Moon will be void on WEDNESDAY at 8:40 AM ET; it glides into intuitive Pisces at 11:51 AM ET. Thus, on the East Coast, you can get away with sleeping in or flaking out. Not so in LaLaLand.  On THURSDAY the Pisces Moon meets up with Neptune at 2:28 PM ET, suggesting a dreamy start to the day. Upside: the potential for inspiration and vision, especially as we roll into FRIDAY afternoon, when expansive thoughts in the courts and in the media are likely to pull focus. This is courtesy of a cooperative connection between Mercury and Jupiter, which expands whatever it touches. Downside: communication may be muddled or overly idealistic on Thursday.  When in doubt, push for clarity.

The Pisces Moon goes void on FRIDAY at 1PM ET, and wanders without much direction until 7:52 PM ET. Yes, start the weekend early, though there is bound to be some late-breaking piece of news during the void that causes a perceived “crisis”. The general rule about Moon voids — when the Moon is drifting along with as much energy as an exhausted pinball — is that crises which crop up during voids are much ado about nothing — without consequence. Thus, ye are advised to chill!

Once the Moon enters Aries at 7:52 PM ET on FRIDAY, the pace picks up noticeably with its me-me-me-first drive. Saturday is fine for impulsive shopping. Sunday is likely to be as rollicking as last Sunday, thanks to the Moon’s weekly clash with Mars, Uranus and Pluto.

No sleeping in on MONDAY.

And now, the news…

…which I didn’t pay much attention to over the weekend, as my focus was on a joyful wedding and a college mini-reunion. Still, the intensity of the Full Moon in Capricorn, supercharged by the aforementioned Mars, Uranus and Pluto, was felt even without looking at the headlines. Here is a scene from the reception…

…which was perfect and lovely, nonetheless, even if the ceremony was disrupted once by an Emergency Evacuation Alert going off on a cell phone. Turns out fires were all over the place — in six states and in Canada. As for the college gathering, I was a bit apprehensive about scheduling it on a day that would begin with a tense aspect between the Moon and Mars. Sure enough, there were cancellations. Some were worried about the wildfires (pictured above); another actually sprained her ankle. But those who persevered enjoyed a wine-tasting and picnic lunch at Demetria Estate in Los Olivos, just down the road from Fess Parker — made famous in the movie Sideways (a must-see).  The day ended with a surprise visit to the just-opened Leashless Brewing in Ventura. It was a surprise to the owners,  who did not know for sure if I would be able to drop by — true to the spirit of the afternoon’s  proactive Capricorn Moon’s square from Uranus. Surprise! And what says “leashless” — i.e., FREE — like the Moon in touch with Uranus?

Meanwhile, in the actual headlines….

A full Moon in Capricorn is an apt pattern for an article about how goats are going to steal our jobs. Capricorn is the sign of the Goat, doncha know. In other news, the Sun-Pluto conjunction in January was accompanied by a ton of stories about the Russian involvement in the November elections, as you will recall from the last post. The Full Moon suggested further illumination on this topic. What did we get? P45 Jr., appearng to admit  for all intents and purposes that he took a meeting with a Russian lawyer last year, hoping she would provide him with dirt on his father’s opponent.

We do not have an exact birth time for Mr. P45 Jr., but let the record show that he is a Capricorn with Moon in Virgo, seeking to be appreciated for the exacting perfection he brings to his enterprising efforts. Is that why he keeps updating his recollection of that meeting?  Like his father, P45 Jr has a Mercury-Neptune connection, suggesting a need for idealism, vision or rose-colored fog in matters of communcation and mindset. His Mercury (how he needs to think) is in high-flying, righteously opinionated Sagittarius, almost at a dead stop (Mercury had just turned direct).  It is possible that his natal Neptune is in a tense connection with the Moon, reinforcing a need for those rose-colored glasses.

Also like his father: Mars (how he needs to act) is in regal Leo, a placement which some astrologers say can get away with murder in its show-stopping, entitled action. It’s interesting to note that transiting Mercury met up with P45 Jr’s Mars over the weekend, suggesting dramatic communication and assertion. It’s also interesting to see transiting Saturn about to meet up with his 21  degree Sagittarius Mercury — that’ll happen next month; the first hit was in January.  Add him to the truckload of players who have planets around 22 degrees of Sag, Gemini, Virgo and Pisces — all tied in to the U.S. Mars-Neptune square.  When Saturn hits your Mercury by transit, it suggests a need for a reality check in matters of thought and communication that may be weighty, cutting or depressing. If P45 Jr was born in the late afternoon/evening on Jan 1, 1977, transiting Saturn will add its gravitas to P45 Jr.’s Virgo Moon. Life gets serious.

Here’s the latest — posted minutes ago at The Guardian:

The emails show music promoter Rob Goldstone telling the future US president’s son that “the crown prosecutor of Russia” had offered “to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father”.

Goldstone adds: “This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr Trump.”

Trump Jr replies 17 minutes later and welcomes the offer. “If it’s what you say, I love it, especially later in the summer.”

To be continued.

The next notable day of planetary action is Monday, July 17, when  action hero Mars will be challenged by rebel Uranus…AND…Venus will be challenged by Neptune. Watch for upsets, accidents and innovation in matters of action, leaders, aviation, technology and gender concerns, coupled with idealism about the feminine, aesthetics and healing. I wonder if we’ll be hearing more about the oppressive dress code enforced last week in the Speaker’s Lobby on Capitol Hill. A journalist from Across the Pond offers this rant on the women journalists who were ordered off the premises for the crime of wearing….a sleeveless dress. No, there is nothing specific in the dress code that prohibits the wearing of sleeveless dresses.

Thank you for reading this forecast — and sharing it with your friends.

Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 1/24/2013: This ‘n That

Moon entering Cancer at 10PM ET on Wednesday shifts our focus to homeland/emotional security needs and women, for example. Toss in a humanitarian, egalitarian and cooperative connection between the Aquarian Sun and rebel Uranus in pioneering Aries and presto! — the ban against women serving in combat in the U.S. military is about to be lifted. Another breakthrough in a week of breakthroughs — even without an Equal Rights Amendment ratified, already.

Be mindful of the potential for surprise or other disruptions to the status quo around 8:45AM ET, as rebel Uranus challenges the sensitive (touchy-feely) Cancer Moon, possibly janglng nerves.  News of a power play, possibly ruthless, may hit the airwaves around 6:18PM ET, courtesy of Pluto. A need for stability as we integrate innovation likely required as a result of said power play/catharsis  kicks in as evening approaches.  We’ve got an interesting mix of patterns that will be exact tomorrow. On the one hand, a buoyant connection between the Sun and expansive Jupiter is sure to lift spirits. On the other hand, a sobering challenge between mental Mercury and disciplined Saturn presents a potential harsh reality check…and the Moon is waxing full (exact in Leo late Saturday night), so emotional energy is on the rise.

In other news, Hillary Rodham Clinton testified before Congress during yesterday’s Moon void and apparently there were plenty of knickers gotten into a twist. Much ado about nothing or actions without consequence — those are the usual results of Moon-void efforts to move forward in a straight line. Gambling and speculation are also on the front page, reflecting planetary patterns involving Jupiter (expansion, luck) and Uranus (risk). Did you know that Indiana is one of the biggest gambling states in the nation? Me neither…but now it is facing some stiff competition.  In the stock market, Apple may have posted stellar returns, but its stock is tanking. And in Kansas, those in charge are now working hard to eliminate the state’s income tax — now there’s a gamble. Perhaps they will turn the state into a casino, to make up the lost revenue. And speaking of gambling, Morgan Stanley is being sued — and the speculations made by some of its employees in the months before the big giant crisis of September 2008 (which many astrologers predicted, thank you very much) are being revealed…and it is not pretty.

Last but not least, an amusing op-ed by Joyce Wadler expresses bewilderment at her sudden bluntness in communication, given her usual conscious concern for courtesy in social interactions. Well, duh. One look at her birth date — January 2, 1948 — instantly shows her idealistic Sun- Mercury (mindset, communication) hook-up being supercharged by ruthless Pluto. Of course she’s being blunt. And if she was born in the late afternoon or in the evening, she has Moon in people-pleasing Libra also being supercharged by the ultimately emancipating and empowering Uranus-Pluto square. Which can serve her well in her stated ambition to focus on her comedy writing, now that she’s just taken a buyout from her employer. Looks pretty good over the next couple of years…and Joyce, if you’re reading this, give me a call and we’ll put it all in perspective.

I hope you all have enjoyed this forecast, because thanks to the disruptions suggested by the Moon-Uranus (computers) square, I have typed it thrice,  re-creating it from memory each time. Apparently there is a problem with my website hosting service, which is  — as forecast — quite unsettling. These moments when I neglect to “save” before attempting to post, in my earnest rush to provide you with information to help you through the day are moments when I am also compelled to say that at the bottom of this forecast (if you are receiving this by email) OR on the left-hand side of this page (if you are reading this on my website), there is a link/big gold button which you can click to make a donation, for those who are inclined to use it to express appreciation. Such expressions of appreciation would be preferable to the email I received minutes ago wanting to know why I haven’t been writing about the FUBAR battery problems that have grounded Boeing’s fleet of Dreamliner 787s. Thank you, Universe, for reminding me that I am not perfect and there is always room for improvement.

But you know who IS perfect? Mark Marshall at Interage, my invaluable web designer, whose prompt and cheerful response to my website crisis will now allow me to post today’s forecast. If you’re in need of a web guru, you have found him — no matter where you live.  Thank you, Mark, for everything you do.

And thank you for reading this forecast and for sharing it with the rest of the Free World. Have a fabulous day!
