"I'm a skeptic by nature and I still don't know how she does it, but Elisabeth told me more about myself and about critical points in my life than she could've known beforehand or can possibly be dismissed as coincidence or a parlor trick. And she helped me to use this as a framework to analyze the here and now more clearly. The session was definitely a positive, eye-opening experience."

Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday 1/28/2014: The State of the Union; Notes on Neptune; Jamie Dimon Update

An enterprising, practical Moon in Capricorn facilitates action today, accompanied by a jolt or revelation around 3:01PM ET, followed by a power play or catharsis around 7:35PM ET. That’s when the Moon will make contact with the Uranus-Pluto square, a.k.a. The Planetary Pattern Everyone Should Be Talking About.  You’re more likely to feel the potentially empowering push if you were born around the 1st of April, July, October and January…or if you have a planet or angle between 8 and 14 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn. If you don’t know what degrees your planets are at, order an Astro-Basics Report, described here.

The rest of the evening is marked by exuberant and potentially indulgent connections to the Moon from expansive Jupiter in nurturing Cancer and Venus (money, love, women, beauty) in status-seeking Capricorn. If exuberance and indulgence are on your calendar, good for you — especially if you’re planning to network. If it’s a major purchase you’re considering — especially of an aesthetic nature — you may want to consider it twice, given that Venus is still retrograde. Conventional astro-logical wisdom suggests a stronger possibility of paying too much when this planet appears to be moving backwards in the cosmos.

Add to this mix the focus on power and resources (who has them; who doesn’t) suggested by patterns discussed in yesterday’s forecast, empathy and/or rose-colored glasses (Neptune) running wild, plus an egalitarian, humanitarian, communicative connection between the Aquarius Sun and rebel/technogeek Uranus in pioneering Aries, and there’s your backdrop for President Obama’s State of the Union address. Ooh, lookie — the sneak peek reports that one focus of the speech will be income inequality, and that Obama plans to sign an order increasing the minimum wage for certain workers. Immigration (who has a certain empowered status; who doesn’t) is also on the agenda.

President Obama is a Leo with Moon in Gemini.  He shines with a need to inform. His Leo Sun is squared by nebulous Neptune, suggesting a need for a vision, perhaps — or that he may project an ideal. He may have experienced a bewildering sense of ego — or others may be bewildered by him. Heck, there are still plenty of people who do not believe he was born in America. Currently, Obama’s Gemini Moon is being squared by Neptune, so themes of bewilderment/empathy/vision/spirituality/dreaminess are likely “up” for him now — as discussed in a post last week.

So let’s take a look at the woman who is giving the Republican rebuttal to the State of the Union. She is Cathy McMorris Rodgers. She is a Gemini with Moon in Leo (5/22/69 – in Salem, OR).  She informs with a need to shine. Her Gemini Sun is opposed by nebulous Neptune in her birth chart, suggesting a similar bewildering ego experience or projection, as well as a need for vision and other Neptunian themes (intangibles, e.g., vision, spirits, music, etc.). Her Sun currently being squared by transiting Neptune. Weird, huh? We know from her official biography that she went to a Christian college, and the first paragraph of that bio reads like a dream come true.  How intriguing to note on a left-wing website a post  — with no concrete link to solid documented proof — asserting that she spent part of her childhood in Canada. With strong Neptune in a horoscope, it may be challenging for some to believe you’re for real.  Unlike President Obama, Rodgers has Neptune  in an obsessive connection to her natal Mercury (mindset, communication), suggesting a greater need for idealism in her thinking. Obama has Mercury configured with expansive Jupiter, suggesting a need to think in “big picture” terms — perhaps too big at times.  It will be interesting to see where Rodgers is at from mid-2015 to mid-2016, when other planetary patterns in her horoscope will suggest a need for prominence.

Astro-logical follow-up: a few months ago, I mentioned that right about now, we could expect another startling move involving JPMorgan Chase President and CEO Jamie Dimon, whose horoscope we’ve been following for a couple of years. His horoscope is directly impacted by the status quo-disrupting Uranus-Pluto square, and two years is about  how long it takes for these slow-moving outer planets to finish up whatever big change and wild ride they are symbolically effecting…and is about how long it feels like this particular forecast is taking me to write. Anyway, surprise, surprise — throughout all of the turmoil JPMorgan Chase has gone through in the past two years, including scandal, losses and ginormous fines — Mr. Dimon, whose salary was cut in half some time ago, was given a hefty raise.

The astrology of Japan, Caroline Kennedy and a few TV news networks has been on my mind — will endeavor to fill you in sometime this week, along with a forecast for the New Moon on Thursday.

Thank you for reading this forecast — and for sharing it with all of your friends and relatives. Makes my day.

The color black is brought to you by today’s Moon in Capricorn. Make something happen and book a personal astro-logical consultation today.

Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 1/20/2014: Heroes and Such

Alll—righty, then!

The Moon is in discriminating Virgo today, and it goes void at 3:55PM ET, on a cooperative connection between disciplined Saturn. What will you correctly organize or criticize today, hmm? Moon doesn’t enter the next sign, Libra, until 7:43AM ET on Tuesday, so you can spend the last half of the day going with the flow, avoiding the malls, and rolling with any twists or flakes that may arise.

It is a holiday for most workers in the United States, as we pause to honor the pioneering civil rights leader, Martin Luther King, Jr., whose horoscope was written about in an earlier post. Today I was intrigued to read in the New York Times about an Ohio Congressman named William Moore McCulloch, who is credited with being the first to introduce legislation that would lead to the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. I’d never heard of this conservative white Republican, whose legislative initiative was considered to be “political suicide,” but of course I had to go look up his birth date: November 24, 1901 in Holmesville, OH.

Briefly — for those who may be somewhat familiar with the language of astrology —  we’re looking at the Sun in righteous Sagittarius with Moon in earthy Taurus, a sign not known for being a fierce advocate for change. However, three powerful patterns in the horoscope suggest the most dynamic of action potential.  First, a charismatic and prominent opposition between a “make it happen” Mars in Capricorn and dreamy Neptune in Cancer, both at zero degrees, and thus at the Aries Point. Wow! Talk about effective, practical idealism made real!

Second, an opposition between rebel Uranus and transformational Pluto — do I need to say more about that dynamic, given what we know about the never-ending Uranus-Pluto square’s need to disrupt the status quo? Third, an awesome exact conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn in Capricorn (government, collective structures of society) suggests an unstoppable enterprising and purposeful drive. This Jupiter-Saturn hook-up is at 13 degrees of Capricorn, and everyone reading this should immediately recall that a planet or angle 13 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn will be supercharged by Uranus and Pluto, especially in April and June. And by supercharged, I mean it will become prominent. And isn’t it fascinating that McCulloch will absolutely become prominent this year because of a book that will soon be published about the battle surrounding the passage of the Civil Rights Act. Also fascinating: the U.S. Sun is 13 degrees of Cancer.

Meanwhile, nebulous Neptune — which refers to fantastic escapes, including drug, alcohol and other addictions — is running wild. Reflecting these themes, I was struck by this first-person account by a reformed and redeemed (Neptune also refers to salvation) trader who argues that wealth is also an addiction. Yes, really, an addiction — and I had never thought of money in that way, either. Check out his story, currently the second most-emailed article in the New York Times.
