Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday & the Next Two or Three Days: Politics, As Usual

Allll-riiighty then!

As you know from Monday’s post, the Virgo Moon went void this morning at 9:22AM ET, not to enter Libra until 5:41PM ET. Of course a friend of mine texted me at 10 AM ET with this important message:

funny day get off train walk in opposite direction of destination

Elsewhere, a colleague’s work day began with the explosion of a can of flavored water — all over her cubicle. Well, the void did launch on an easy flow to energetic Mars. What about you? Any unexpected twists and flakes in your efforts to move forward in a straight line? Guess how many I experienced in a effort to post a forecast today?

Once engaged in Libra, the Moon may facilitate social graces, relationship-building and rational discourse, at least through Friday. As noted on Monday, the innovative structuring of ideas is also supported, hopefully reflecting your grand vision.

And now, the news.

Senate Republicans have lost their minds, is the headline for today’s NYT editorial, responding to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s statement (backed by Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee), that there would be no hearings and/or confirmation of anyone President Obama might nominate to fill the current vacancy on the Supreme Court. If you know anything about handwriting analysis, you’ll have a field day with the signatures on the letter from the Judiciary Committee. Isn’t it interesting that Ted Cruz’s signature does not even acknowledge the existence of the line he’s supposed to sign on?

We do not have a birth time for McConnell, but we do see in his horoscope at least three planets — Mars, Saturn and Uranus — together between 21 and 26 degrees of Taurus. This is a tough as nails combo of stubborn energy dedicated to keeping things “the way it ought to be” (so says my mentor of Taurus). If you’ve been paying close attention to what I’ve written about transiting Mars recently, you might think, “oh wow — transiting Mars is in Scorpio and is opposing that trio of planets right now.” So this extremely risky action is not unexpected.

Here’s John Oliver with an informative and entertaining take on the roadblock, including a Really Useful lesson in American history.

Meanwhile, we also see the potential for bold action in the birth chart many astrologers use for the Republican Party. Note the GOP’s Moon at 24 Scorpio — just triggered by transiting Mars at  — 24 Scorpio! We’d expect an aggressive expression of the GOP’s need for depth, power and control. Isn’t that fascinating?

Avid readers will immediately spot the tension the GOP’s 14 degree Cancer Sun has experienced in the past two years, courtesy of the Uranus-Pluto square. How has the GOP’s identity been transformed, empowered and/or disrupted? And how interesting to see transiting Neptune, which dissolves what it touches, now squaring the GOP’s Saturn (structure, authority and control). Neptune-Saturn patterns can be sooooo surreal. The sense of bewilderment — of falling in love with something that seems ideal that may later prove false — is also suggested by a solar arc between Neptune and the GOP’s Scorpio Moon. This might be reflected as a need for a spiritual experience or vision. Emotional intensity and power plays are suggested by an arc between the GOP’s Pluto and the Moon.

There’s much more that could be said astro-logically which echoes what many pundits have been saying about the ongoing dissolution of the GOP.  If we accept the 12PM birth time as correct, we see an additional breakdown and transformation of the GOP’s identity suggested by a recent solar arc to the Ascendant from Pluto, with another solar arc from Pluto to the Midheaven exact in November.

UPDATE — on Monday’s study of the event chart for an alleged gang rape last month — hot off the NYT home page. As the chart suggested, the story did not happen as initially reported. No charges will be filed.  Nor will a case move forward against Rick Perry, former governor of Texas. Now all of the abuse-of-power charges filed in 2014   have been dropped.  In Rick Perry’s horoscope, we see transiting Venus exactly on his 9 Aquarius Midheaven — his reputation/career/status. Such a transit suggests a boost in popularity or appeal. In traditional astrology, Venus is considered to be a fortunate influence.  Venus rules the governor’s 27 Taurus Ascendant, which is significant. Interesting to note that the New Moon this month was on Gov. Perry’s Jupiter, a planet that is also often considered to be lucky.

Hoping for some headlines that are not all about politics in the next forecast….stay tuned!

What’s going on in your horoscope? Here’s the 411 on personal consultations.

 

Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday 1/25/2012: Basking in the Afterglow, Except for Mitt

Note your dreams this AM for signs of a lingering rosy afterglow, suggesting by a sublime connection between nebulous Neptune and the Moon. Enthusiasm for making some of those dreams come true shows up at 7:47AM ET, when jolly Jupiter aligns with the Moon, which entered soulful Pisces at 4:11AM (shortly after that hook-up with Neptune).

Dreams, glamor, empathy, spirit — what else will drive a day when Pisces craves a connection with intangibles? Not to mention oil, fish, drugs and the sea (watch the headlines). Go with the flow…and note the revelations that may turn up toward 7:30PM ET, when Moon connects with Pluto, bringing whatever is hidden into the light.

And speaking of dreams, who was that man at the podium on Capitol Hill last night? http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/25/us/politics/state-of-the-union-2012.html?hp A feisty State of the Union speech indeed – and so thrilling to witness, given yesterday’s astro-logical forecast. So many initiatives presented — and yet with Mars retrograde (darn it), I regret to say the chances of them materializing in the near future are not promising. But perhaps there will be some who heard the call and will begin to plan a strategy for execution at a later date…

Looking at yesterday’s patterns — with Venus (money) and Pluto (resources, empowerment, news from underground) running wild — I wondered how that might manifest in the headlines. Other than Apple posting stellar earnings at the end of the day and tomorrow’s Fed decision, another story really driving news was Mitt Romney’s tax returns http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/01/24/inside-the-romney-tax-returns/ Really not a good day for Romney, a Pisces born March 12, 1947 at 9:51AM in Detroit, MI.

For months, Romney has been lost in a cloud, suggested by a loooong challenge to his Moon in “knowledge is power” Scorpio by nebulous Neptune. His Jupiter in “I must have a mission” Scorpio is also affected — suggesting, perhaps, an overblown sense of what the mission might be — or a huge leap of faith. This Neptune-Moon connection also suggests a big blur and/or befuddlement around communication — and a certain amount of anxiety about popularity — odd for a horoscope that otherwise suggests a natural inclination to reach out to the public. It dampens the fires of ambition…and the ambiguity will likely continue as Neptune challenges Romney’s Gemini Ascendent (identity crisis?). This has to be hard to deal with, given other measurements in the chart that suggests the need to be known for having a strong sense of purpose. Note that Rick Perry just went through a Neptune challenge to his Ascendant (yes, that’s what all the confusion was likely about), and Barack Obama was having a Neptune challenge to his Midheaven (public status, authority) early last year (that influence has since left the building — in case you hadn’t noticed).

 

Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 11/10/2011: Rick Perry’s Perfect Timing

With apologies for the delay and thanks to those who shared their take on yesterday’s potential without the astro-logical 411. Here’s what you just lived through:

Wednesday at 2:45AM, Moon left zippy Aries for the security-seeking, consolidating, generally peaceful and patient (and sometimes really stubborn) sign of Taurus. If you woke up feeling rather buoyant, you were likely tuning in to the expansive, optimistic influence of Jupiter, the cosmic sugardaddy, exact at 10:20AM ET. A supportive trine from transformational Pluto at 2:08PM ET likely gave depth and power to whatever you were constructing…and after that….no exact aspects to any planet at all until the Full Moon is exact TODAY at 3:16PM ET.  Since Moon in Taurus likes to keep things as they are, a long period — even several hours’ worth –without exact aspects can feel like we’re in holding pattern…

So what happened to Governor Rick Perry at last night’s debate? Newswires are all abuzz with this priceless gaffe, in which Perry can’t remember the third of three “government agencies (sic)” he’d eliminate if he ran the zoo http://video.cnbc.com/gallery/?video=3000056443  Well, would you believe that nebulous Neptune, which tends to dissolve whatever it touches, changed direction yesterday at 1:55PM ET. And that Neptune, which rules Perry’s Pisces Sun is currently squaring his Ascendant, suggesting 1) things may not be as they seem; 2) a confusing perspective or appearance. I’m also noting the Sun in Scorpio squaring his Pluto, which rules one of the house related to public outreach, and that Mercury (mind, communication) and Venus (social expression) are hooked up in Perry’s 7th house, in the “foot-in-mouth” sign of Sagittarius. It’s not surprising at all that Perry would pull focus for something he said, and that something would be confusing or bewildering.
