"The reading was a partnership between the two of us; she did not simply recite planetary signs and meanings, but had a conversation with me, continually asking what I made of what she saw, and what I thought I could do to change the things I want to change.

When the names of other people in my life came up, she quickly looked up their charts on her computer and commented on their roles in my life -- painting a fuller picture of where I was, where I wanted to go, and how I could get there.

What was impressive was that Elisabeth took all the planets, people, and situations that made up my life and created a context for them all that was positive, hopeful, and exciting!

She has a lovely personality, a sharp wit, and a gift for astrological interpretation."

Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday 8/27/2013: Wondrous Strange; Mars in Leo

More of the same from yesterday: Moon in practical, sensual Taurus, either reinforcing our efforts to build material security or stubbornly maintaining the status quo. Mental Mercury (mindset, communication) starts the day off well-supported by disciplined Saturn — well, that’s good for fleshing out an idea and other serious communications. Expressing the sensual side of that Taurus Moon is given quite an edge by a potentially over-the-top connection between a delightfully considerate Venus and expansive Jupiter, also in a security-conscious sign. It’s a great day to be on an expense account; otherwise, keep an eye on your wallet and your appetite, lest ye overindulge. The Venus-Jupiter challenge is exact at 5:53PM ET. An overindulgence in rationalizations in favor of efforts to maintain homeland security is another potential.

At the end of the day — 10:05PM ET — aggressive Mars leaves watery Cancer and blusters its way into Leo, sign of drama queens and other royally entitled persons. On the plus side, we can expect less passive-aggression in acts of assertion. With Mars in Leo, there is the suggested need for actions to be accompanied with a regal flourish, often bold and playful. On the downside, there is that royally entitled thing, and more than one astrologer has noted that people born with Mars in Leo have an amazing ability to get away with murder. They assume they will receive special treatment and are definitely the ones to hang out with if you’re looking for complimentary upgrades.

Meanwhile, we continue to process the fallout from yesterday’s visionary and/or surreal Neptune-Sun opposition, combined with the freedom-seeking and unconventional expression of rebel Uranus opposing Venus.  Neptune keywords include: music, toxins, film, photography, oceans, oil, spirit, redemption, suffering, empathy, glamor. Related headlines include the disturbing confirmation of chemical weapons killing many in Syria (as if there wasn’t enough misery in the world) and a much more uplifting story of redemption involving a former bank robber who served his time and is about to begin a prestigious clerkship with an equally prestigious judge. Within this article is a link to a fascinating exchange between the reformed bank robber and the judge who sentenced him to several years’ in prison.

Pulling out all the razzle-dazzling stops of Neptunian showbiz, Julian Assange released a “surreal” campaign video supporting his run for public office in his native Australia. You did not know he was running for office? Of course he is, as reflected by current Saturn transits in his horoscope, seeking an ambitious and authoritative expression. If you were having a major Saturn transit, you might be acting on a few ambitions, too. And speaking of surreal, Miley Cyrus’s showstopping performance on the weekend’s VMA show is most definitely not suggested by a Saturn transit. She’ll get that later this year.  Chalk this one up to an innate need for unconventional social expression (Venus conjunct rebel Uranus and glamorous Neptune in her horoscope), triggered by transiting Mars (action!). Plus Ms. Cyrus is a gamboling Sagittarius with her Sun conjunct an equally gamboling and rowdy Sagittarius Ascendant. We’d expect to see some frankly in-your-face personal projections…including the gawd-awfully garish outfit worn at said Awards.

Moon goes void for ten minutes at 6:58PM ET; then it moves into information junkie Gemini, giving us more to talk about tomorrow…









Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 10/11/2012: It’s Debatable Again…

If you did not receive the usual forecast yesterday, please check your spam folder. That’s where my copy ended up, and I have a feeling I’m not the only one who had that experience. Let’s hope there are no glitches in today’s delivery…

Not much to report until 3:23PM ET, when the Moon enters discriminating, detail-oriented Virgo. Until then, go with the flow, regardless of how deviated your efforts may be to move in a straight line. I say this because the Moon went void-of-course as of 5:40PM ET on Wednesday. See the link in yesterday’s forecast — the one posted on the website — for more on voids, assuming you do not know what they are and how to best handle them.

About an hour after Moon enters Virgo, it opposes nebulous Neptune, which is frankly more of a challenge than the support the Moon receives ten minutes later from structured Saturn. How dreamy/spacey might you be feeling, in spite of the Virgo Moon’s need to make order out of chaos? That energy carries us through the rest of the afternoon, and as we move into suppertime, ornery Mars in opinionated Sagittarius clashes with the nitpicky, perfection-seeking Moon (exact at 9:36PM ET). If someone doesn’t get just a tad combative over details in the opening 30 minutes of the Vice-Presidential debate, I will be disappointed. And yet…disappointed I may be, because even though aggressive Mars is ready to rumble (and making serious connections in the horoscopes of both contenders), nebulous Neptune is just as active as it was in the horoscopes of the Obama-Romney contest last week. This suggests a rose-colored fog permeating the airwaves…but let’s take a closer look.

Joe Biden (Nov 20 1942 — around 8:30AM in Scranton, PA)) is a Scorpio with Moon in Taurus, suggesting a need to preserve material security and keep things as they are or as they should be. He has Sagittarius on the Ascendant — probably 3 or 4 degrees into the sign. Sag is an outspoken, rather randy, often disheveled/undisciplined force of nature that values high ideals and blunt candor. That is why Sag is so often associated with foot-in-mouth disease. Right now Mars is at 3 Sagittarius, exactly on Biden’s Ascendant and opposing his Uranus at 2 Gemini. This is a potential for fireworks, unless the reigning need of Biden’s Taurus Moon and the energy of his Sun in controlling Scorpio can keep things steady and calm.

As with the horoscopes of Obama and Romney, nebulous Neptune exerts a powerful influence on Biden and Ryan, too. So much that I am beginning to suspect some kind of conspiracy, and would feel so much better about it if other, less Neptune-influenced candidates could participate in this political process. Candidates like Dr. Jill Stein, Rocky Anderson — heck, I would be happy to include Roseanne Barr, too — she’s running on the Peace and Freedom ticket — with Cindy “Speaking Power to the Liars” Sheehan, no less. Did I leave anyone out?

But I digress.

Paul Ryan, whose horoscope was covered in detail in an earlier forecast also has an early Sagittarius Ascendent, at zero degrees, in fact. He was born with Neptune exactly conjunct the Ascendant, shrouding him in a rose-colored fog or vision, depending on whether you like what he has to say (with Moon running wild in people-pleasing Libra,  he has more than enough charm to convince you that you should).  Neptune — now at 0 Pisces, is exactly squaring the Ascendant — that point of personal projection — kicking up those clouds of pixie dust even more. But hey — in Biden’s horoscope, Neptune is involved, too — making a sextile to the Ascendant! While arguably this is a much less problematic aspect than Ryan’s conjunction (in terms of living in a real world, not an imaginary one), Biden still must deal with the challenge of Neptune transiting by square. Will he — or his opponent — be able to make a case that is clear and distinct? I am not convinced. It is more likely that people will hear whatever fits the reality they think they would like to live in. Sigh.

Back to Mars, which is the symbol for action, often of an aggressive nature. We talked about Mars and the potential for Biden to be provoked. Same goes for Ryan. Mars is right on Ryan’s Ascendant, too, with the same potential for provocation. There is even a connection between transiting Mars and Ryan’s natal Uranus — similar to Biden. Fascinating. Looking at the chart for the event itself — 10/11/2012 at 9PM in Danville, KY, nebulous Neptune is squaring the Ascendant — and Mars is also at an angle. This mirrors what is going on in the horoscopes of Biden and Ryan! Regardless of this astonishing synchronicity, I am not convinced that the outcome will rock the polls one way or the other, while there will be plenty of arguments about what was actually said. Fact checkers, take your places!
