Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday 5/16/2012: Venus Retrograde, Part 2

With the Moon charging ahead in me-me-me Aries (as of 5:45PM ET Tuesday), we can anticipate an active day, punctuated by a surprise, a shock or a flash of insight around 8:11AM ET…and a power play, catharsis or other deep encounter (including news from underground) around 12:10PM ET. Headline news about power/aggression and resources (including nuclear energy, oil and mines) are also a potential — and oh, look, as I’m typing, here’s a story about the former military commander of the U.S. nuclear forces calling for a reduction in nuclear warheads right on the New York Times homepage– amazing.

You may be on  your own personal power surge today — and with Venus now retrograde (as of 10:33AM ET yesterday), remember to add an extra bit of consideration in your social interactions. Venus retrograde offers an excellent opportunity to FOCUS on what we need in relationship — and to give to others the kindness we would like to receive from them.

The span Venus will retrace over the next seven weeks is 24 to 7 degrees Gemini. If you know your horoscope, that area is where you may find opportunities to review issues of integrity in relationship and/or financial and aesthetic concerns. It can be challenging to assess the true value of something during a retrograde, so you may want to wait before making firm commitments one way or the other. Example: a friend of mine once bought an apartment during Venus retrograde — and while it seemed to be an excellent deal at the time, she could have paid less, especially since she discovered (after the sale closed) that the apartment had flaws the seller had deliberately covered up. Do your due diligence in matters of love, money and beauty.

The Sabian Symbol for 24 Gemini is “children skating on ice,” or to quote Blain Bovee, “an image of unsteady legs trying to move forward on unfamiliar terrain”.  We live in ever-changing times, and patterns suggest we are about to move into a time of increasing volatility. These patterns will likely offer exciting new opportunities…and as we find our paradigms shifting, how we connect and relate with each other may also be subject to change.

 

 

Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 5/7/2012: Monday, Monday

Generally speaking, Moon in Sagittarius…where it moved last night at 9:39PM ET (after a loooong 13 hour void)…tends to lift the spirits, even when its fueled by philosophical debates that can get a wee bit rowdy (Sagittarius is not the most perfectly groomed sign of the zodiac…and you wouldn’t be either if you were half-human and half-beast, as all Centaur-Archers are). Today, however, the opinions that need to be expressed may ruffle a few feathers, suggested by a challenge to Moon from aggressive Mars in hypercritical Virgo at 8:18AM ET. The emotional outburst that may follow could be over the top, suggested by an obsessive connection between ruthless Pluto and Venus. Put your Big Girl Panties on and use a bit of charm and objective strategy to acquire the resources you need. We’ve got one more day of mental Mercury in impulsive, quick-tempered Aries; by Wednesday cooler heads will likely prevail (though they may not be nearly as inspiring or exciting).

As the day progresses, any storm clouds in your world are likely to dissipate. Take advantage of opportunities to broaden your mind and sense of physical space — or just enjoy a gambol/gamble or two.

Moon voids this week (to help you plan your agenda): Tuesday 9:34 – 10PM ET; Thursday 3:11PM – 1:03AM Friday ET.

Coming up later this week: what to expect when Venus turns retrograde at 10:33AM ET on the 15th. If you’re thinking of redecorating your home, I hope you’ve picked your colors out already….
