Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 10/7/2013: Gravity & Venusian Escapes

Rise and shine! The work week begins with an awesome potential for profound realization and gravitas, suggested by the sobering, disciplined, reality check between serious Saturn (Father Time) and mental Mercury, exact in penetrating Scorpio on Tuesday at 3:39PM ET. Deep thoughts coupled with controlling passion are also suggested by today’s Scorpio Moon. Not a bad day for planning strategy, organizing resources and going way beneath the surface for the knowledge you seek. Get your New Moon agenda off the ground.

The emotional intensity could be softened by an easy connection between the Moon and expansive Jupiter around lunchtime on the East Coast, but the real lift arrives at 1:54PM ET. That’s when Venus (social expression) breathes a huge sigh of relief and leaves the moody, controlling clutches of Scorpio for a rowdy roll in the hay in high-flying, fiery Sagittarius. Wheeee! You may notice this immediately, as those around you suddenly have no trouble letting you know exactly how they feel — and if a few feet end up in a few mouths, well — what’s life without a few gambles or gambols. Really, ask any Sagittarius.

Your Moon void periods for the week — not a time to ship or sign anything you wish to be of consequence — won’t interfere too much with regular business hours in the Americas. Here they are: Tuesday 12:54AM – 8:21AM ET; Thursday 6:11AM ET – 11:17AM ET; Friday 8:04PM ET – Saturday 2PM ET. Use those periods to take a break from the usual Type A determination to move forward in a straight line. This does NOT mean you should do nothing, though that can be productive. It simply suggests that Type A efforts are more likely than usual to experience twists and delays — so just roll with them.

And now, the news.  Last week’s New Moon suggested considerable volatility, and the weather has certainly been accommodating. Blizzards in the Midwest, typhoons in China; hail expected perhaps in the Northeast. I’m sure I’m leaving stuff out.  Also as anticipated, some major dirt — about the current U. S. government shutdown — was dumped on the front page of Sunday’s New York Times:A Federal Budget Crisis Months in the Planning”  Yes, that’s right — planning. And this inspired me to look back to January’s forecasts for what we could expect in Obama’s second term — check out the fourth and fifth paragraphs in this prior post.  How are we doing? Meanwhile, as we would also expect to see, given current planetary patterns (disruptive Uranus-Pluto square; Saturn and Mercury conjunct in Scorpio), there’s nothing but “deep” on the docket of the Supreme Court — check out what they’ll be ruling on as the new term begins. And how cool was it that a movie called “Gravity” is number one at the box office this weekend?

Back to planetary patterns suggesting major dirt:  this perfectly-timed NYT op-ed discusses the impact the sudden exposure of closely-guarded facts may have in your own personal world. It may come in handy by the end of next week, when a potentially bewildering face-off between aggressive Mars and nebulous Neptune is added to the mix of a Full Moon and lunar eclipse. However surreal the headlines may be, I’d like to believe that if you’re reading this post, you’re one of the souls who signed up to be a beacon of light in the chaos. So rise and shine — and be helpful, as creatively as you can. Those little acts of random kindness and senseless beauty really add up — let’s get a lot of them going!

Thank you for reading and sharing this forecast.

 

 

Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 7/29/2013: Carpe Diem; The Grand Sextile

After another loooong void period (Saturday 10:19PM ET – Monday 12:43PM ET), during which you should have taken an equally long break, Moon is now firmly planted in Taurus, needing to build and maintain material comfort and security. This day is jam-packed with planetary patterns that may well support your plans for world domination, especially if you have significant planets and/or angles at 4- 11 degrees of just about any sign.

First, we’ve got the Grand Water Trine among Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune. This is the pattern talked about throughout July. The planets are moving out of the Grand Trine (the technical term is “separating”), but the influence is still there. It suggests emotional self-sufficiency and dreams made real. Late this afternoon and early evening we’ll have another Grand Trine in effect — this one among the Taurus Moon, Venus in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn — all Earth signs. A Grand Earth Trine suggests self-sufficiency and/or a projected aura of abundance in material resources. Let the record show that the markets have been doing very well this month…and they also did well in March of 2012,  under another Grand Earth Trine.

Drawn on a piece of paper, the two Grand Trines look like a Star of David, and the technical term for this configuration is “Grand Sextile”. The distance between each planet in the configuration is 60 degrees —  a sextile. Planets in a sextile relationship with one another communicate very well. On its own, the Grand Sextile suggests a stellar opportunity, balance and harmony — and at the very least, a meditation, however brief, on world peace. And isn’t it amazing that today at 5:30AM ET, the New York Times has posted an obituary for Garry Davis, a peace activist who renounced his American citizenship and declared himself a world citizen.  He believed, reads the obit, “that if there were no nation-states, there would be no wars.”

“The nation-state is a political fiction which perpetuates anarchy and is the breeding ground of war,” he told The Daily Yomiuri, an English-language newspaper in Japan, in 1990. “Allegiance to a nation is a collective suicide pact.”

He had a fascinating life, well worth reading about, starting with his birth in Bar Harbor, Maine. According to the Times, last month he sent a world passport to Edward Snowden, whose U.S. passport was revoked. Cue John Lennon singing “Imagine” now.

But wait, there’s more. Countering the need for stability suggested by this Grand Sextile are two T-squares. This is a pattern that is inherently unstable, challenging us to take action. First, there is the volatile T-square among aggressive Mars, rebel Uranus and power mongering Pluto, exact last Saturday through this Wednesday. This suggests technological breakthroughs, accidents, increased violence and continued awareness of the breakdown of the structures of the world as we know it.

The second T-square is comprised of an ambitious/controlling Saturn opposition to the Moon (10:41 AM ET), squared by the Leo Sun (1:43PM ET). Having stern Saturn strongly connected to the 3rd Quarter Moon suggesting a serious move on the New Moon agenda set three weeks ago — either a major strategic reach or restriction.

Make the most of this day of extraordinary potential. And get it off your desk before the Moon goes void tomorrow — Tuesday — at 11:58AM ET for almost 24 hours until Wednesday at 11:42AM ET. On Thursday, Moon will be void again as of 12:48PM ET…until just after midnight on Saturday. Start the weekend early!

And now, a few headlines reflecting planetary patterns worth sharing.

Mick Jagger turned 70 on Friday, just before Saturn (Father Time) square the Sun (it’s later than you think). Here’s a piece by Gail Collins about Mr. Jagger and other aging rock stars from the 60s, marveling that they are still performing. Of course they are still performing; they all have Pluto in Leo, and this is a generation of perpetual teenagers. They will never grow old.

For war, with a decidedly tech spin — suggested by aggressive Mars triggering Uranus and Pluto — here’s a piece about a film commissioned by the Imperial War Museum, featuring U.S. drone operators. These are the guys who sit in front of video screens in Nevada and kill people living thousands of miles away — at least 4700 real live people so far, according to Senator Lindsay Graham.

For tech breakthroughs and expanding consciousness, as we realize the world is much more than we imagine it, here’s a piece expounding on the statistic that one out of seven stars in the universe probably has a planet similar in size to Earth. And here’s a recent picture of Earth and the Moon as seen from Saturn — with thanks to NASA and our tax dollars.

Enjoy this glorious day!
