"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."

Tuesday 9/5/2017: Sneak Peek at a Shortened Week: Mercury Direct; Mars Enters Virgo

Easy does it, as the work week begins.

Lots of action while you are sleeping early TUESDAY morning (with Mercury retrograde, naturally I misteakenly wrote last week that this was all happening on MONDAY. I hate it when that happens; apologies for the error. Really, it’s all happening on September 5th).

First,  a face-off between the Moon and Mars at 1:15 AM ET suggests provocative action. Moon then goes void for several minutes and enters Pisces at 1:28 AM ET. Another face-off between the Sun and Neptune happens at exactly the same time ET; we’ve been feeling this one all week. Neptune refers to the surreal, oil, chemicals, toxins, spirits of all kinds, water, oceans, floods, refugees, faith and charity. Here’s what was going on in the news in the wake of the annual Sun-Neptune opposition in 2015.

But wait, there’s more. Mars leaves regal Leo for perfectionist Virgo at 5:35 AM, channeling its action/assertion drive into making things right. Extreme patience and focus in all travel/communication is advised, as Mercury turns direct at 7:30 AM.

Note that the Pisces Moon will travel through day without interference, waxing to its fullness on WEDNESDAY at 3:03AM ET. Two hours before the Full Moon is exact, it meets up with Neptune, planet of faith, dreams, healing, oil, water, delusion, spirits, refugees, victims, chemicals.  This can be dreamy or deceptive…and perhaps a little bit of both.

In the wake of Wednesday’s Full Moon, we will have a heavy challenge from Saturn (control, patriarchy, ambition) at 4:29PM ET. Then the Moon goes void until THURSDAY at 8:01 AM ET, when it charges off a cliff in pioneering, me-me-me Aries.

On FRIDAY, the Aries Moon makes its weekly clash with Pluto at 1:49 PM ET. This suggests a power play and/or an emotional catharsis. On SATURDAY, Moon is opposed by rebel Uranus at 8:54 AM ET. Humming in the background all week is a trine (harmony) between the Sun (leaders) and Pluto (power, plutonium, news from underground, corruption). Here’s a headline reflecting the Sun-Pluto trine from last year:

Add the power/resources consolidation of the Sun trine Pluto and say hi to what could be the largest energy infrastructure company in America: the merger of Spectra and Enbridge.

Finally, on Saturday at 10:52 PM ET, Mercury stops shouting “Off with their heads!” in Leo and re-enters Virgo, where it may now dedicate itself to thoughts of order, refinement, service and humility. We hope.

The chart for the Full Moon, set in Washington DC, has disruptive Uranus and Pluto in contact with the Midheaven and the Ascendant, a.k.a. the angles of the horoscope.  Heavy planets making tense contact with the angles of a horoscope reflect strong potential for action.

The Sabian Symbols for this Full Moon at 14 Pisces vs. the Sun at 14 Virgo offer these insights.  “A lady in a fox fur stole” is the Symbol for 14 Pisces, suggesting, writes astrologer Blain Bovee, “cunning camouflage for family protection.” Just imagine this lady gliding through society, effortlessly, putting out an image of belonging. What’s her real agenda? 14 Pisces was the Symbol for the New Moon in March of 2011. 

For the Sun at  14 degrees of Virgo, and the Sabian Symbol is “a family tree.”  Again with the family ties? How will that play out in the headlines? Even if you do not feel that you belong, act as if…???  This was the Symbol for the New Moon in September 2013.

Meanwhile, if you follow Tarot Diva Beth Owlsdaughter’s weekly card pulls (always in sync with planetary patterns), you may remember her writing  that last week’s card was the Six of Swords — challenging perhaps, but not as challenging as the Five. So guess what card showed up this week.…bwahahahaha…

This week, take your time adjusting to Mercury’s forward direction. Breathe. Go with the Moon in Pisces flow.  And take Beth Owlsdaughter’s wise words to heart:

In your own world this week, be extra careful not to make enemies. Instead, approach any potential conflict with candor and scrupulous honesty. Whenever possible, first stretch out the hand of peace and magnanimity.

Beware of the temptations of malicious gossip, half-truths with an agenda, and gloating over any advantage you may currently enjoy in a competitive situation.

On the other hand, have you been defeated or cheated out of something by a wily and cunning opponent? Do you feel you have suffered because of someone’s cowardliness, ego, or malice?

Perhaps now is the time to walk away while you can. A strategic retreat may be the wisest move.

Take extra care to protect what is valuable to you, and be careful about people who would wield their power in underhanded, dishonest ways, as well as any urge to do so on your part. Infamy and trickery are floating in the air.

Winning at any price will not really vanquish a competitor. People will always remember how they were made to feel. This is why sooner or later, the payback always comes. Fairness and justice, eventually, must be served.

And now, the news.

Thrilled to report cosmic headlines reflecting the far-out potential of Mars in harmony with Uranus; wiggy Sun opposing Neptune:

In other news…

Secrets coming out — past actions REviewed — as anticipated — in the wake of last month’s Big Fat solar eclipse and Mercury retrograde. You’ve seen the story that broke on Friday, yes?  Alex Wubbels — the Utah nurse who was arrested on July 26th because she refused to be bullied by a police detective who wanted to illegally obtain a patient’s blood sample? The arrest — and assault — was caught on tape.  It looks like what you’d expect to see on July 26th: the regal Leo Sun meeting up with regal Leo Mars, trying to get away with murder.

Turns out the unconscious patient whose rights Nurse Wubbels defended (in accordance with the law) — works in law enforcement. Talk about a backfire for the aptly named Officer Payne. The patient’s police department thanked Nurse Wubbels. And effective immediately, police officers visiting that Utah hospital will no longer be permitted to contact nurses, nor will they be allowed in patient care areas.  Where was Mercury on July 26th? 1 Virgo — where it was last week and will return again over the weekend. Stay tuned…

Revealed: the handwritten letter from President Obama left for P45 in the Resolute Desk on Inauguration Day.

Revealed:  the DOJ confirms that P45’s assertion of having “wires tapped”  by President Obama was “a total fabrication”

Revealed: a WWII bomb discovered in a construction site in Frankfurt forces the evacuation of 60,000

Revealed: UK at center of big fat money laundering scheme in Azerbaijan

Revealed, bigtime — coupled with the explosive potential of Mars meeting up with Mercury on North Korea’s recently eclipsed Saturn  — this heavy, sobering WaPo headline: North Korea defies predictions — again — with early grasp of weapons milestone

Cleraly the Washington Post does not appreciate the value of astrology — otherwise it would not write that this dreadful development “defied predictions.” Astrologers who write about these things have warned of this potential at this time for months.  The explosion resulted in a 6.3 quake on the Richter scale, and it’s all terribly bewildering. Couldn’t North Korea find something better to do?

And how exactly do North Koreans get their news? From the “pink lady” newscaster, of course — with clips provided by The Guardian. On a day with the Sun opposing Neptune, color the apocalypse weird and rose…and send out thoughts of peace and calm.

U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley has her work cut out for her. I hope to find time one day to write about her horoscope.

Congress is back in session. In the aftermath of last week’s Jupiter-Saturn sextile, will bipartisanship save the day? Meanwhile, Hurricane Irma is on its way — so let’s end on this happy note:

UPDATE: Prince William, whose horoscope was discussed on August 10th, including this observation:

In 2018, transiting Uranus will oppose  his 2 degree Scorpio Midheaven, suggesting a disruption in the family and in his professional status. That opposition occurs twice next summer: on July 23rd and August 28th, accompanied by another measurement between the Sun and Venus. Sun-Venus measurements suggest a focus on love, popularity, creativity and/or birth

Today it was announced that Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge — a.k.a. Kate Middleton — is pregnant. Made me smile. Life goes on…

Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday 6/24/2015: Mars in Cancer; Hot Horoscopes

If you feel like you’re being kicked out of bed, you’re picking up on the energetic boost suggested by the First Quarter Moon, exact at 7:02AM ET. Said Moon is in people-pleasing Libra, seeking popularity, balance and fairness in relationship. What challenges may come to light re: the agenda you set last week on the New Moon? You’ve got the whole day free and clear to work it out.

Two and a half hours later, action hero Mars pulls focus by leaving Gemini for Cancer. Look for prominent action related to home and homeland security — or general Mars matters such as iron and steel. Here’s a story that popped up an hour or so ago — about an axe thrown by a Fox & Friends host that missed its target and hit a West Point drummer instead. Will this be tomorrow morning’s hot topic?

Mars will be in Cancer until August 6th. You are more personally affected by transiting Mars entering Cancer if you are someone like — say — Barack Obama, who has his Venus at 1 degree of Cancer. Immediately we expect his social expression to be more active and prominent. And — oh lookie — here is an article from the NYT about how he’s been wearing his heart on his sleeve more than his usual cool, airy (Moon in Gemini; Aquarius rising) mode of expression allows. Blame it on transiting Mars activating his naturally caring, sensitive social expression (yes, really), brought to a sensitive, deeply spiritual blossoming suggested by a prominent transit of Neptune. Really, no surprises here…but I suppose journalists do need something to write about.

Meryl Streep is another person affected by Mars at the Aries Point. She has Sun and Uranus conjunct at the Aries Point in Cancer (happy belated birthday, Ms. Streep). Yesterday she made headlines by urging Congress to pass the Equal Rights Amendment.  You may recall the last time her horoscope was discussed in this forecast it was expected that she would experience a change of direction in her career that would also be prominent. And now she is getting quite serious about this women’s equality thing — RAH.

In other news, the Trans-Pacific Partnership was fast-tracked by the Senate yesterday. Score another victory for Barack Obama’s horoscope, which clearly suggests he’s at the top of his game. No lack of ambition and gravitas for him through early fall, as Saturn completes its series of transits to his Midheaven and his Moon.

Maybe someone else can think of a good reason why this deal should go through, but I am skeptical for reasons cited here, and in this video here. If you can think of a good reason, feel free to share.

Elsewhere…

That flag. That Confederate flag. Suddenly most everyone is in agreement — as if it just hit them for the first time in a quantum leap of consciousness.  Soon it will be off the state license plates in Virginia; Walmart and Sears won’t be selling flag-emblazoned items anymore; heck, maybe Mississippi may change its state flag.

In South Carolina,  Governor Nikki Haley urged state legislators to consider taking it down from state grounds. Calling it an “emotional” decision, she said:

“It came down to one simple thing,” Ms. Haley said in a phone interview Tuesday. “I couldn’t look my son or daughter in the face and justify that flag flying anymore.”

Just like that. A quantum leap facilitated in the aftermath of the Uranus-Pluto square and the brutal force of transiting Pluto square Saturn in the US horoscope.  Wake up and smell the coffee. Change or die. Stuff like that.

Fun fact: Sabian Symbols work in pairs. I did not tell you about the opposing Symbol of last week’s New Moon at 25 Gemini but here it is: “a flag bearer”. Interesting, eh? Wish I had time to write more…
