Thursday 11/8/2018 & the Weekend: Election Day Wrap

TGIt’s almost F!

The Scorpio Moon will be void between 5:42 AM  and 1:59 PM ET. That’s your excuse for any slow starts, twists and flakes that disrupt your effort to move forward in a straight line. No impulse shopping and no freaking out over “crises” that may crop up. Your purchase may not deliver as promised, but that crisis is likely to go away when the Moon gets back on track.

Once the Moon enters Sagittarius, see if you notice a lift in spirits — and for some, an exaggerated exuberance — as Moon meets up with Jupiter at 2 PM ET.  Take a walk in nature; see a foreign film; engage in a righteous debate. All are favored until 10:55 PM ET on SATURDAY, when the Moon leaves Sag for Capricorn. On FRIDAY, thoughts and communication may be expansive and sloppy in the AM; somewhat bewildering, inspired or delusional in the PM. Moon meets up with Mercury at 8:37 AM ET; it squares nebulous Neptune at 3:42 PM ET. In between, there’s a lovely harmony between the yin and yang, suggested by a trine between Venus and Mars, exact at 10:12 AM ET.  This pattern suggests a fine time to work things out with a significant other.

Patterns on Saturday are light. SUNDAY is driven by the Moon in Capricorn, seeking to take care of business. A heavy meet-up between the Moon and Saturn at 10:25 AM ET adds gravitas; a harmony between the Sun and Pluto suggests an easy power play.

No sleeping in on Monday. The Moon continues in Capricorn, and it won’t be void.

And now, the news — tons of it.

Building to a release at 5:42 AM ET today was a tense square between Mars (action, guns, military, courage, aggression) and the Scorpio Moon. Mars is in Aquarius, suggesting a rebel with a cause. Aquarius is ruled by Uranus. On Tuesday, Uranus re-entered Aries. Mars rules Aries. So we see that there is now a relationship between Mars and Uranus (technology, eccentricity, disruptor, shocks), as each planet is in the sign ruled by the other. It’s a mutual attraction, suggesting an ease of expression in matters symbolized by these two signs and planets. The technical term for this relationship is “mutual reception.” I’m seeing it reflected in the morning headlines by yet another mass shooting — this one in Thousand Oaks, California. Two of those killed were “good guys with guns.” The perpetrator was a 28-year-old Caucasian male and an ex-Marine who apparently suffered from PTSD. Mars will leave Aquarius on November 16th.

In other news,  Jupiter is now officially in Sagittarius (as of 7:38 AM ET), where it happily pushes boundaries in matters related to free speech, publishing, law, borders, travel, righteous opinions, hot air, etc —  until December 3, 2019. What does this suggest in your own personal world? I will be happy to write up a few paragraphs about what opportunities Jupiter in Sagittarius is likely to bring for you.

Fun!

Meanwhile, right on schedule, here is the big story reflecting Jupiter’s ingress into Sagittarius (file this under “I told you so”): CNN Jim Acosta was actually accosted yesterday during a P45 press conference. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders lied and implied Mr. Acosta inappropriately touched a White House intern. She tweeted as evidence  a video edited by Infowars (a conspiracy-theory outfit which has been banned from Twitter and other social media sites). Later that night, Mr. Acosta was denied access to another White House press event. But let WaPo’s Jennifer Rubin explain it all for you (and argue that Mr. Acosta should sue).

Mr. Acosta (Apr 17, 1972) is an Aries with Moon and Mars in enterprising Capricorn. His Mercury is at 0 Taurus. His Sun and Mercury are being supercharged by transiting Uranus; transiting Pluto is supercharging his Mars. Perhaps transiting Saturn is now on his Capricorn Moon; without a birth time, we do not know. Translation: we see the strong potential for his communication to be disruptive and for actions to be provocative and powerful. Fun fact: his Mars opposes P45’s Venus-Saturn conjunction in Cancer; his Saturn squares P45’s natal Mars in regal Leo. We can see in the astrology why P45 experiences Mr. Acosta as a threat to his authority and would want to shut him down. Exhibit A: “White House Goes Authoritarian on CNN’s Jim Acosta.”   The authoritarian dreams referred to in last Friday’s forecast are quite real.

The timing of this brazen move is also in sync with P45’s horoscope. From Monday’s post:

A power play the day before Election Day? With transiting Mars (action) and Jupiter (expansion) about to make contact with the Midheaven and Ascendant of P45’s horoscope on November 6th and 7th, respectively, we’ll find out soon enough.

I would argue that the dismissal of Attorney General  Jeff Sessions qualifies as a P45 pre-Election Day power play. Mr. Sessions’ letter of “resignation” was not dated (suggesting it was written earlier than yesterday), and it was released hours after the Democrats regained control of the House. (Fun fact: P45 immediately threatened to take “a warlike posture” if the House initiated Certain Investigation. That’s consistent with what we’d expect with Mars and Jupiter activating P45’s horoscope.)

The timing of Sessions’ firing should be no surprise to Avid Readers, who were informed back in January that transiting Saturn would be hitting Mr. Sessions’ Capricorn Sun and Mars three times in 2018. Strong potential for advancement (upside) and for hitting a brick wall (downside). So when did transiting Saturn clip his highly effective potential for action, symbolized by his natal Mars in Capricorn? ON NOVEMBER 7TH. Coincidence or conspiracy?

A pause, while I create for myself the Sabian Symbol for yesterday’s New Moon in Scorpio: “A girl’s face breaking into a smile.”   Mix it up with Uranus in Aries opposing Venus in Libra, a pattern facilitating “unconventional” attractions; Venus and Uranus in harmony with Mars in Aquarius:

I did believe that Democrats would take the House, and here’s why. Patterns in 2019 are more expansive than restraining for P45 in 2019. But in 2020, he will have transiting Pluto opposing his natal Saturn. This suggests an anguished year; great effort with high stakes. I did not believe this pattern could manifest without a change in House leadership. With few exceptions, Republicans in Congress have demonstrated that they are fine with enabling the man who would be king. It will be up to the Democrats in the House and the Attorneys General in Democratic states to put him in a power squeeze. This is going to take some time. So even if P45 acts rashly (see paragraph below) and tries to squash Robert Mueller’s investigation, as NYT’s Paul Krugman is currently tweeting, House Democrats now have subpoena power, so the truth is going to come out. I pay attention to Mr. Krugman because history and statistics prove he is an accurate pundit.

Meanwhile, despite the hard reality check transiting Saturn delivers to P45’s smoke and mirrors Neptune on Sunday 11/11, we can expect him to be swinging wildly against perceived attacks, as transiting Mars continues to activate aggressive patterns, exact on November 10th and 15th. Another hit of gravitas falls on December 10th, as transiting Saturn opposes his natal Mercury. This is followed by a rash/shocking initiative around December 13th, when transiting Mars activates his natal Uranus (rebel). Exhibit A: Kellyanne Conway’s husband just co-wrote an op-ed declaring that P45’s appointment of Matthew Whitaker as Acting Attorney General is totally unconstitutional.  With Jeff Sessions now gone, Whitaker is now overseeing Mueller’s investigation. Did you know that Whitaker was on the board of a company that settled a “vast scam” in May? It was like Trump University — but for inventors.

In other news, I did not expect Beto O’Rourke to defeat Ted Cruz in Texas. Ted Cruz is under the protective aura of transiting Jupiter conjunct his natal Venus, exact on November 16th, along with other expansive patterns.  No one should be surprised that Mitt Romney is now Senator Romney (R-UT). Told ya so back in January.  Not surprised Scott Walker tanked. His horoscope just doesn’t have the heat it did back in 2011. I can’t believe I’ve been following him for seven years. Bye, Felicia!

Meanwhile, fingers crossed for Nancy Pelosi — last discussed in March. With transiting Saturn on her pioneering Aries Sun righthisminute and transiting Uranus just off her hard-working Saturn-Pluto square, she is due for an upset to the status quo. Whether it puts her back in power as House Majority Leader or cuts her off, I can’t say. Transiting Saturn could go either way, and we do not have a birth time. But if P45 is telling everyone he wants to work with her, you know darn well he’s only doing it in the hopes that her colleagues won’t vote for someone he says he supports.  Here’s her horoscope.

One last political note: as predicted, there were massive technical snafus at the polls. At my New York polling place, our electronic scanner crashed, creating huge lines and delays. Every person in America should be screaming for the return of non-electronic voting machines. Contact your local board of elections and state lawmakers.

Meanwhile, in non-political news, here’s an interesting one reflecting the dreamy healing potential of last weekend’s Sun-Neptune trine: “What If the Placebo Effect Isn’t A Trick?” Reflecting the disruptive potential of Uranus in Taurus, opposed by Venus (unconventional creative expression, likely involving innovation and/or technology): “A Portrait Created by AI Just Sold for $432,000” — yeah, two weeks ago — but at least it’s not politics.

Friday 2/9/2018 & the Weekend: Big Again; Jupiter Square Sun

Huzzah for today’s Moon in Sagittarius — huzzah! As of 8:53 AM ET yesterday (THURSDAY), count on Sag Moon to drive the day with a need to push boundaries, fueled by righteous opinion. Over the next few days, take a walk in the woods; catch a foreign film — or the opening ceremonies of the 697th Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea (with North Korea and South Korea marching under one flag — RAH!).  With Venus at the very last degree of Aquarius, you know there will be a place for everyone, the more unconventional the better. With Saturday’s exact square between Jupiter and the Aquarius Sun, you also know it’s gonna be big!

On FRIDAY, note the potential for a focused outburst of energy/assertion around 1:40 AM ET, as the Sag Moon meets up with Mars.  Cue Rand Paul shutting down the government now, please. A budget deal was eventually passed at 5:30 AM ET, with Pluto exactly on the Ascendant. That’s an image of force and necessary compulsion, as in “resistance is futile.”  The government is now open. So they say.)

Around 11:05 AM ET, note the potential for a bewildering flurry of events as the Moon is squared by Neptune. Who knows how far the markets will fall?

On SATURDAY, Moon will be void between 11:38 AM ET and 9:21 PM ET, suggested whatever crisis that crops up may be much ado about nothing. No impulse shopping during the void. Moon enters Capricorn at 9:21 PM ET, marching forward on a mission of making things happen. If you have an enterprising project to accomplish around the house, SUNDAY would be a day to do it, aided by a focused meet-up of the Moon and Saturn at 9:17 AM ET.

No sleeping in on MONDAY.

Housekeeping note: the glitch with my contact form has now been fixed. Now is the time to book a consultation for your favorite Valentine. Aren’t you dying to know how the ties that bind you together are reflected in your respective horoscopes?

And now, the news.

Talk about BIG! Here’s to Space X founder Elon Musk, for his company’s successful launch of Falcon Heavy, the world’s most powerful rocket. OMG did you see this on tape? You must! Lift off happened at 3:45 PM ET in Cape Canaveral, FL — powered by Pluto on the Descendant and expansive Jupiter trine to the Ascendant. Yippee! And OMG — check out the Starman in the red Roadster. What an apt image for the far-out potential of Uranus in pioneering Aries aligned with Venus in space cadet Aquarius.

Also big — and in a rare spirit of reaching across the aisles, suggested by aforementioned harmony between Venus and Uranus: Senate leaders reached an agreement on a “far-reaching budget deal.” Did it raise the debt ceiling and increase spending? Heck, YES! Meanwhile, in Germany, “Angela Merkel Strikes New Deal With Old Partners, At High Cost.”  Coincidence or conspiracy? Walgreens is reaching across the aisles, too — with the announcement of its new “transgender inclusion bathroom policy.”  Wait, not so fast, says Bermuda — which today repealed laws legalizing same-sex marriage, replacing it with some form of separate but equal status.

In other news, the expansive potential of Jupiter is clearly seen in Nancy Pelosi’s horoscope, as Jupiter met up with her Moon, trined her Mercury (how she needs to think and communicate), and opposed her Venus, Mars and Uranus.  A need for gravitas and focus is suggested by transiting Saturn squaring her Aries Sun. Together, it adds up to this: “Nancy Pelosi Breaks Record with 8-Hour Speech” yesterday on the floor of the House. More upsets to come from Ms. Pelosi in a few months, as transiting Uranus shakes up her hard-working Saturn-Pluto square. I wish we had an exact birth time for her horoscope.

Jupiter refers to publishing. Here’s a big story: Billionaire Patrick Soon-Shiong reaches deal to buy L.A. Times and San Diego Union-Tribune.

Jupiter refers to judicial opinions. This one is big:  SCOTUS Justice Samuel Alito denied a stay on a lower court ruling requiring Pennsylvania to re-draw its districts.  Seriously, have you seen how the current Pennsylvania districts have been drawn?

Jupiter refers to grandiosity, braggadocio and wretched excess — these are downside potentials. The Sun refers to egos and leaders — including autocrats, which appears to be a global trend.  It should come as no surprise that one of the most wretchedly excessive, swaggering braggarts in recent political memory has a big idea: a military parade to end all military parades. And this big idea is in an actual planning stage: Trevor Noah has the latest. They’re talking Veterans Day as a possible Big Fat Parade date. I’m surprised no one has suggested Flag Day — June 14th — which just so happens to be P45’s birthday. I’d be thrilled if that was the actual date, because he has two exact measurements on that day which suggest 1) risky action with broad reach and 2) excessive pleasurable indulgence. A Big Fat Parade which he can salute fits that picture, and it’s arguably more preferable than a more explosive alternative.

This just in:

House Democrats on Thursday introduced the “PARADE” Act — otherwise known as the Preventing the Allocation of Resources for Absurd Defense Expenditures bill — which aims keep taxpayers from footing the bill if President Trump’s dreams of a military parade do, indeed, come to fruition.

It’s official. We are living in a theater of the absurd.

In other big news, Big trouble: all of Japan’s sumo wrestlers to be questioned as sport lurches into crisis

Meanwhile, there is the Rob Porter scandal. He is Senator Orrin Hatch’s former chief of staff — and now former staff secretary at the White House. He resigned this week after his abusive behavior was revealed by two of his ex-wives and a former girlfriend.  Not only is Rob Porter an apparent wife beater, he also was unable to obtain a full security clearance for his highly sensitive White House gig. He’s not the only one at the White House who hasn’t been fully cleared. Oh — and none of this is news to certain legal staffers at the White House; they’ve known about these abuse allegations and security challenges for over a year. Hmm. Astro Fun Facts: Porter’s Saturn at 28 Leo was eclipsed on Aug 21st by the Big Fat Total Solar Eclipse, triggered last month by transiting Mars at 28 Scorpio.  Transiting Uranus is now at 25 Aries, just one degree away from its third hit to the Midheaven (public status) of the 2017 P45 Inaugural Chart. We see the suggestion of a shake-up around March 7th. Perhaps there is more to come. Stay tuned.

Thank you for reading this forecast.
