Friday 9/13/2019 and the Weekend: Full Moon in Pisces; the Wiggy Continues: Big Giant News Round-Up

TGIF!

The Moon is in Pisces and emotions are on the rise. Here’s reminder of planetary patterns today and this weekend:

  • FRIDAY — Lots of action, as the Pisces Moon makes contact with multiple planets between 10 AM and midnight: Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Neptune and Pluto. The hours around 4 PM may be exceptionally assertive, in a fanatical/sexy/scandalous sort of way. That’s when Moon makes contact with Mars and Neptune, as the planets of action/assertion and vision/fog prepare for a face-off minutes after the Moon waxes to its fullness on Saturday.
  • Meanwhile, Mercury and Venus will meet up at the very end of Virgo at 11:12 AM ET. They will both be at the Aries Point over the next few days, suggesting prominent matters in the headlines involving contracts and other documents, communication, arts, women, money and social expression. Power players — including energy resources as well as people — are likely consolidating forces, as the Sun trines (harmonizes) with Pluto at 3:36 PM ET.
  • SATURDAY — the Full Moon in Pisces occurs at 12:33 AM ET, close to the Aries Point.  This is an especially wiggy one, as it is within minutes of the Mars-Neptune opposition at 1:26 AM ET. Quelle scandale — likely involving fiercely held matters of faith. Meanwhile, Mercury and Venus both leave Virgo for Libra at 3:15 AM ET and 9:43 AM ET, respectively. Mercury’s condition diminishes; Venus’s condition improves. The Pisces Moon goes void at its moment of fullness….not to charge into Aries until 6:32 PM ET. Once there, it focuses its me- me-me needs against the we-we-we drive of Mercury and Venus for the rest of the evening.
  • SUNDAY — Moon continues its crusade in Aries without interference; you are free to shop, as it will not be void. Moon squares Saturn at 10:29 PM ET. Do we really have to go to work on Monday? Yes. Yes, we do.

A few notes on the Full Moon, which will be exact at 21 Pisces, opposing the Sun at 21 Virgo. This is a significant activation for the United States. In the U.S. horoscope, this Full Moon will trigger the fanatical potential of the U.S. Mars-Neptune square. This is the part of the U.S. horoscope that reflects our romantic idealization (Neptune) of everything Mars, i.e., soldiers, cars, guns, action heroes, etc. — and also our need for diverse, clever and entertaining initiatives (the U.S. Mars is in Gemini) for the perfect American Dream (the U.S. Neptune is in Virgo). Avid Readers will recall that many many many heavy players in U.S. politics have horoscopes that are tied to the U.S. Mars-Neptune square. Exhibit A: P45, whose Sun and Moon are at 22 Gemini and 21 Sagittarius. So whenever his blah blah blah Gemini Sun and righteously opinionated Sag Moon are activated, the U.S. Mars-Neptune square is also activated. Isn’t that interesting? Mike Pence has Mercury (how he needs to think and communicate) at 21 Gemini. Modern Russia has the Sun at 21 Gemini. Coincidence or conspiracy?

Here is the horoscope for the Full Moon, set in Washington D.C.

The Sabian Symbols for the Full Moon are (for the Pisces Moon) “a man bringing down the new law from Mount Sinai” and (for the Virgo Sun) “a royal coat of arms.” Sabian Sage Blain Bovee writes that these symbols suggest awareness of two shared motifs: “Might is right” and “all authority goes to blazes.” We are advised to apply this pair with a mind to awareness of “…the prevailing standards of privilege and power; justifications that can really burn you up,” along with spiritual rationalization of actions and authority; preaching from a clueless perspective; “intense feelings about the chosen one; passions that champion divine rule.” Here is a link to Bovee’s book on Sabian Symbols — a most excellent add to your library.

What’s going on in your horoscope? Is it being activated by this Full Moon or other planetary patterns? If you haven’t consulted with your astrologer in over a year, you’re due for a check-up. Here’s the 411 on consultations.

And now, the news.

The fast-approaching T-square among Jupiter in Sag, Mars in Virgo and Neptune in Pisces suggests headlines involving scandal, faith, horses, fanatics, liver, water in all excessive forms, victims, saviors, toxins, chemicals, drugs, healing, education,  film, music, intrigue, guns, cars, the surreal and the sublime. Here’s a sampling:

Meanwhile, even P45 is reflecting planetary patterns — in general and in his own horoscope. This week he and Melania announced an initiative to ban all flavored e-cigarettes because six people have died and hundreds have apparently been sickened by toxic contaminents. Toxins and other drugs are oh-so Mars-Jupiter-Neptune. So is befuddlement and memory loss. So when P45 spoke of his wife having a son — followed by a seemingly hesitant “together,” many found it odd, including The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah, who has it on tape.  But ever since the Sun, Mars, Venus and Mercury crossed P45’s 29 Leo Ascendant a couple of weeks ago, the way in which he is being seen by others (which is a key symbolism of the Ascendant) is generating more attention. And what is being seen is more and  more bewildering. Last week, he reinvented the weather, armed with a Sharpie, a cat video and a tweet at midnight –– after sending Alabama into a panic. Last night during the Dem Debate, he complained that energy-efficient lightbulbs were expensive and “made him look orange.”   Is there something else activating his Ascendant, perhaps?

Yes, there is. In effect for the past few months and exact on October 1st, we see a measurment between the Ascendant and Pluto. Keywords for Pluto include empowerment, transformation, breakdown and decay. An upside potential of this measurement is successful persuasion (projecting the power potential of Pluto on the public, for better or for worse). Another measurement in effect for the past few months and exact on September 27 is between Venus and Neptune. In P45’s horoscope, Venus refers to the area of his life that involves siblings, neighbors, local travel — and how he thinks and communicates. It also refers to his professional status. How do Venus and Neptune combine? Upside: the creation of an aesthetic ideal or romance. Downside: Neptune denies material form, seeking to dissolve whatever it touches. Neptune suggests illusion.

In P45’s natal horoscope, Neptune is involved in how he needs to think and communicate, as his Mercury (how he needs to think, etc) is squared by Neptune. Upside: inspiring and intuitive visionary communicator. Downside potential: snake oil salesman; fanciful; delusional; confusing. Over the past several years, when Neptune has activated P45’s horoscope, it has been weird. In 2011 and 2012, when transiting Neptune opposed his Ascendant, he falsely claimed that President Obama was born in Kenya, and that President Obama’s Hawaii-issued birth certificate was fake. Total Neptune delusion. Now, in 2019, transiting Neptune is squaring P45’s natal Uranus, which refers to matters involving partnerships (marital and business) and the public. Neptune in his horoscope refers to matters of shared values and investments. Robert Hand opines that transiting Neptune squaring Uranus can reflect sudden mood swings, secrets outed, having to face the truth about a difficult aspect of oneself — or about the world in general. In 2021, transiting Neptune will be exact or quite close to a square to his Sun-Moon opposition for the next two years. Wherever he is during that time span may recall the weirdness of his birther conspiracy campaign.

In the near-term future — i.e., the next six weeks, Avid Readers will recall that October is when transiting Jupiter will activate P45’s Sun and Moon for the third and final time this year. The first hit was in February — and here’s what happened then. We can anticipate similarly expansive and persuasive actions from P45 in last ten days of October. Even before then, we anticipate daring and/or reckless assertion, as transiting Mars squares his Uranus, Moon and Sun between September 15th and the 23rd, with one more expansive risk or innovation suggested on September 28th.

OK. Enough about P45. Look at all these cool and uplifting stories compiled on the Good News Network — yayyyy! And look at this way- cool NYT op-ed: “Even Physicists Don’t Understand Quantum Mechanics.” Y’know, physicists have a lot in common with astrologers…

What’s going on in your horoscope?

Thank you for reading this forecast.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 3/11/2013: New Moon in Pisces

The New Moon in Pisces officially begins at 3:51PM ET, offering us an opportunity to re-set  intentions and goals for the next lunar cycle. Next week will be about planting seeds to turn your intentions into reality. Around the 19th, on the First Quarter Moon, we can expect a challenge to those goals, with appropriate adjustments made. At the time of the Full Moon on the 27th, we can expect illumination on the success or failure of our goals for the cycle. If we succeeded, we can consciously release our success into our reality; if we failed, we let go of whatever did not work. After the Third Quarter Moon on April 3rd, we can review our achievements, tie up loose ends and get ready to begin another New Moon on April 10th.

A New Moon in Pisces suggests a need — or an opportunity — to access intangibles and share them for the benefit of something greater than the Self.  Typical “intangibles” include film, intuition, music, faith and dreams. Pisces is a watery/emotional sign whose wisdom comes from an keen understanding of the longings, joys and sorrows we share in common.  Pisces is known for its compassion and sensitivity to human suffering. You can learn a lot about Pisces energy by listening to the “Aquarium” section of Carnival of the Animals by Camille Saint-Saens or by just watching the ethereal, unified action in this clip from the Osaka Aquarium.

OK, so this New Moon has seven out of ten planets in a dreamy energetic Pisces flow. What’s in it for you?  Well, first of all, it’s happening at 21 degrees of Pisces. So if you were born around the 11th of March, June, September or December…or have an angle or planet around 21 degrees of Pisces, Gemini, Virgo or Sagittarius, you’ll likely feel this New Moon more than most. If you don’t have a planet in any of those degrees, then look to see where 21 Pisces falls in your horoscope; that is the area of your life where a focus on dreams and other intangibles may pull focus.

The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon is “a prophet carrying tablets of the new law is walking down the slopes of Mount Sinai” – and it’s just loaded with helpful hints on what we can expect in this cycle. This is an image of someone who has had a “peak experience” — spiritually and physically — and he or she is bringing back to earth certain tangible guidelines that have been presumably channeled from the Divine. On the plus side, it suggests bringing your actions in line with a higher authority and/or relying on your intuition for guidance. On the down side, Sabian Symbol guru Blain Bovee notes the potential for “spiritually rationalizing one’s actions and authority” and “to pontificate from an out-of-touch vantage point”. Really, “pontificate”….just as a papal conclave has gathered to choose a new Pope. And they are waiting until after the New Moon officially kicks in (and with Mars at 0 Aries and the Moon in Aries on Tuesday, my sense is that it will not take long for them to make their decision). Think this story will dominate the news in this cycle? Coincidence or conspiracy?

Another important signature of this New Moon is Mars, planet of action at 29 degrees of Pisces — the very last degree of the zodiac. Mars is not a happy warrior in watery Pisces, but things are about to change because Mars enters Aries, the sign it rules, on Tuesday. From 0 to 60 MPH anyone? Mars is very comfortable with the pioneering, headstrong and often rash Aries fire. Not only that, but any planet at the beginning of Aries NEEDS to be prominent!

We should see some daring actions happening as of Tuesday, especially with the Moon in Aries on Tuesday as well. Today we are just on the verge….which is why it is so important that you become a clear channel and set your intentions in alignment with the highest good for ALL. Mars in Aries can be rash, and Mercury is still retrograde. Be careful on the roads, won’t you?

General note for the rest of the month:  Mars (assertive, aggressive action) is hot, especially between the 19th and the 31st, as it makes contact with rebel Uranus and ruthless Pluto on either side of the Full Moon on the 27th. On the plus side, we should see some bold moves and breakthroughs — especially with Mercury moving forward on the 17th. On the down side, we may see some spectacular battles, outbursts and startling news from underground.

The Pisces New Moon goes void immediately at 3:51 PM ET today  and enters Aries at 7:17 AM ET on Tuesday. Moon will also be void all day on Wednesday until 3:08PM ET on Thursday. Plan accordingly.

PS: In honor of politicians reaching across the aisles on Thursday (as forecast) and actually sharing lunch and dinner together,  I meant to include this delightful link of an owl cavorting with a pussycat. No, not the ones in the poem; I’m talking about Fum and Gebra. They are best friends. Enjoy!
