Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 7/6/2015: Sneak Peek at the Week

Good morning!

I trust you all had a lovely holiday weekend. Here’s what’s on deck for the week:

Today’s Moon continues its journey in Pisces, beautifully supported by the nurturing Cancer Sun and regenerative Pluto around 10AM ET. Whatever power play or purge is dropped on your plate this morning, courtesy of the Sun’s opposition from Pluto at 11:36AM ET may be more easily integrated. A sensitive Pisces Moon can go with the flow more than most, even as it seeks to identify and work with what is most ideal.

You’re more likely to be dealing with a personal power play if you have a planet or point around 14 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn. Whatever it is may well be related to something that was lit up for you in mid-March and early April.

Other planetary patterns of note this week include a harmonious connection between Mars in Cancer and Neptune in Pisces, exact on Wednesday. Mars-Neptune aspects suggest charisma and other forms of pixie-dust, facilitating starpower and scams. Less so with the scams, given that is an easy Mars-Neptune connection, but still. This particular configuration conjures up images of nourishment, family, peace offerings, spirituality and (the potential downside) more than a little fanaticism, likely of a religious kind. Combine this with power play of today’s Sun-Pluto push, and it sounds like a great backdrop for Pope Francis to razzle-dazzle ’em in South America this week. Neptune refers to music and other intangible art forms such as photography. The weekend’s final Grateful Dead concert fits the mix, too. So does the cover story of Sunday’s NYT magazine, subtitled “Looking back with Robert Frank, the most influential photographer alive”.

Also happening on Wednesday: mental Mercury finally leaves Gemini for Cancer. Mercury functions ever so quickly and cleverly in Gemini, detached as it can be from weighty emotions. Not so in Cancer. How we feel about it — especially how emotionally secure — is likely to be more of a factor in thoughts and communication until July 23rd. Meanwhile, the 3rd Quarter Moon is also exact on Wednesday, adding an energetic push to the day.

As we get closer to the weekend, shake-ups are in store. Rebel Uranus challenges the Sun late Sunday night — but we’ll feel it beforehand. I doubt you’ll be bored this week, but if you are — just wait until next week, when planetary patterns — including a New Moon — are even more exciting.

Your Moon voids this week are as follows:  Tuesday 10:36AM – 12:37PM ET; Thursday 9:47AM – 3:49PM ET; Saturday 5:52pm – 8:16pm ET. Not too many natural breaks in the action. If you are new to this forecast and unfamiliar with Moon voids, here’s a primer.

And now, the news.

So last week we were thinking that today’s Sun-Pluto power play would be reflected in the ongoing drama in Greece. Yesterday voters rejected the notion of more austerity as a condition for a bailout. Today, banks are still closed and the finance minister has resigned. Last week we were tracking patterns in the horoscope for the establishment of modern Greece’s democracy. Today I’m looking at the chart for Greece’s  independence in February of 1821 and noting that this chart is also under pressure from transiting Pluto through the fall. Next year, when Uranus hits this chart’s Aries Ascendant, we can expect an intensification in areas of shake-ups and break-ups. Until then, this chart is feeling the pressure to streamline as transiting Saturn squares its Sun through August.

We do not have a confirmed birth time for Greece’s Prime Minister, Alexis Tsipras. We have enough information to see, however, that persuasive communication and mindset through next year is strongly suggested, as transiting Pluto opposes his Mercury. It is also interesting to note rebel Uranus running wild….and sitting exactly on the 7th house cusp of 1821 chart. We’d expect his  drive for freedom and independence to shake up the whole country.

So much more to talk about. Did you know that today is the birthday of the Republican Party? That’s a horoscope I hoped to write about today, but will have to wait until tomorrow.  The Democratic Party was born on May 13th, 1792. We’ll get to that horoscope, too.

I’ll leave you with a positive power play: the United States won the Women’s World Cup last night. If you were thinking that planetary patterns on Carli Lloyd‘s birth date were supercharged now, you’d be right.

If you’re wondering whether patterns in your horoscope are supercharged, consider scheduling a personal consultation. Here’s the 411.

 

Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 6/15/2015: Sneak Peek at the Week

Good Morning!

Moon is in Gemini — buzzing around, chatting it up, seeking to be informed. It makes contact with Neptune at 6:59AM ET, so note your dreams. The rest of the day is free and clear of planetary patterns, so there’s little static or other charge to impede your progress, with one caveat. As we are in the dark of the Moon, we may feel listless or restless, sensing that there is a new cycle about to begin. If so, use the energy of the day to wrap up projects started four weeks ago. The New Moon happens Tuesday at 10:05AM ET. Make your wish list a good one. More on that tomorrow.

Moon voids for the week: Tuesday from 10:05AM ET until 6:51PM ET; Friday from 1:52AM – 2:23AM ET. That’s it. Much can be accomplished this week, because the one pattern that is building in strength (exact next Monday morning) is a “sky’s the limit” connection between Jupiter and Uranus — huzzah!

This is the third in a series of Jupiter-Uranus connections that began in September 2014. The second was in early March. Did you start a expansive project in late September? You might be poised to reap a reward if you have a planet or angle around 19 degrees of just about any sign, but especially Aries, Leo and Sagittarius…or if you were born around the 9th of April, August or December. Watch the headlines for fiery and/or cosmic breakthroughs as we get closer to Monday…say, for instance, the miraculous resurrection of the Rosetta spacecraft that’s been hibernating ever since it was launched on a comet’s surface seven months ago.

And now, more news.

Mars pulled focus over the weekend, meeting up with the Sun in Gemini at 11:56AM ET. Mars is firepower, and when connected with the fiery Sun, words like “explosive” and “fighter” can be expected in the headlines.  Exhibit A: “Explosive Intervention by Pope Francis Set to Transform Climate Change Debate”. Indeed, and Pope Francis is publishing his papal letter on the subject on Thursday, on a day with a nurturing Cancer Moon. Most excellent timing.

Exhibit B: in her first big rally on Saturday, Hillary Clinton portrayed herself as “a fighter”. Of course she did. And let the record show that at the scheduled start of the event (at 11:45AM ET on Roosevelt Island in NYC), we see Mercury, ruler of the chart, beautifully placed on the Midheaven, with that fightin’ Sun-Mars meet-up in the 10th house. Mercury is opposed by Saturn (an ambitious reach) and squared by nebulous Neptune (idealism).  Fascinating to note Neptune exactly on the cusp of the 7th (the public),  a similar dose of pixie-dust presented in the event chart for her formal campaign announcement in April. Fascinating to note a lot of patterns in this chart, frankly….

What’s going on in your horoscope?
