And she helped me to use this as a framework to analyze the here and now more clearly. The session was definitely a positive, eye-opening experience."

Astro-logical Forecast for Friday 6/26/2015 & the Weekend: Scorpio Moons & Other Depths

TGIF!

Moon is void in Libra until  1:57PM ET. A slow start or twist to your morning, perhaps? If you slept late and missed your usual train, chances are that the snafu will prove to be of no consequence. Moon voids are notorious for coinciding with multiple challenges in your efforts to move forward in a straight line. Chill and debate the pros and cons of Thursday’s SCOTUS decision upholding federal tax credits (a.k.a. subsidies) for eligible citizens in ALL states, not just the ones whose state governments enthusiastically established their own health insurance exchanges (and also accepted federal funding to expand Medicaid).

What’s next? Legalizing same-sex marriage throughout the United States? Well, the Moon is in Libra…and on Monday we’ll have an easy connection between Venus (social expression, love) and playing field-leveling Uranus…I am hopeful…

Intense emotions and other power and control needs emerge when the Moon plunges into Scorpio after 2PM on Friday. There it will brood until Sunday at 11:21PM ET, with no Moon void to interfere with your summer shopping and yard sale binging all through the weekend. The binge may come courtesy of next week’s luxury-loving Venus-Jupiter hook-up in Leo, discussed yesterday.

Otherwise, hang out with some strong, silent types and contemplate what heights you may reach by exploring the depths. The easy connection between Venus and Uranus at 2:26AM ET on Monday serves as your tourist visa. Start with the Sunday NYT magazine — it’s their mental health issue and it includes more than one article about sex and happiness, including this confessional penned by Elizabeth Gilbert. OK, so I said a Scorpio Moon could brood, didn’t I?

Sunday evening around 9:50PM ET may feel especially heavy as the Moon meets up with taskmaster Saturn and then goes void for an hour and a half (chill time!). It then rockets into Sagittarius, where it will gamble and gambol on Monday and Tuesday. No sleeping in — you’ll miss out on the high-flying fun.

Thank you for reading this forecast.

 

 

Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday 5/26/2015: Weird, Wild Neptune — All Week Long

Good Morning!

Still a lot of pixie dust in the air this week. Could be magical and mystical. Could be a total scam. More likely a little bit of both…with an added touch of the surreal. Why?

Mercury is still in retrograde, encouraging us to slow down, review, reconnect, relax. Mercury is in Gemini, along with the Sun and action hero Mars, so we can expect a need for a bit of buzz.

Mercury meets up with Mars on Wednesday, suggesting tongues may wag ever so sharply. Mercury meets up Neptune on Friday, suggesting a need for vision or a rose-colored fog. Mercury meets up with the Sun on Saturday, reinforcing those idealistic rose-colored glasses. On Sunday the Sun is squared by Neptune.

Dream away — but be advised that your visionary reverie may require a reality check once Mercury turns direct on June 11th. Still, it can be a sublime time to be an artist, musician, healer or some other spiritual type. You’ll understand when I tell you about some of the headlines we saw under the spell of last night’s wiggy Neptune-Mars square.

The Moon is in Virgo, continuing the quest for perfection it started on Monday. We had a First Quarter Moon yesterday, too — suggesting a challenge to the New Moon projects you began last week. Moon goes void at 10:21PM ET…not to enter the next sign, Libra, until 5:42PM ET on WEDNESDAY.  Yet another reason to chill and not verbally shoot from the hip in the foggy potential outlined in the preceding paragraph.

The only other void this week happens between 4:20PM ET on Friday and 5:34 AM ET on Saturday. So what, big deal.

And now, the news.

I love the headlines that crop up when rebel Uranus squares off with Venus (social expression, values), which it did last night. In the few days leading up to this “can’t we all get along?” pattern we saw Ireland — yes — Ireland — become the first country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage by popular vote. And then the president of the Boy Scouts announced that gay scout leaders were A-OK, and perhaps it might be time to stop banning them.  And the Girl Scouts formally welcomed transgendered girls into the club. Coincidence or conspiracy?

Now add the bewildering scam potential of a charged Mars-Neptune contact to the mix, and what is on the NYT home page as I type: “Maligned Study on Gay Marriage is Shaking Trust”.  Fascinating.

My favorite Mars-Neptune pixie dust story is this one: “Five hundred new fairy tales discovered in Germany”.  Spellbinding! Mars-Neptune also refers to Hollywood glamour and movie magic…and along with the “unconventional women” potential of Uranus with Venus, this item about last of the silent movie stars is aptly timed. Find out where she is now! Also aptly timed: a story about the “fairy godmother” who helps out Broadway divas Kelli O’Hara and Kristin Chenoweth — and she’s quite an eccentric character, too.

Seriously, why are these stories making headlines now?

And then there’s this one — just posted on the NYT home page — which begins:

The High Line.

Shake Shack.

The ballet.

Fleet Week is not what it used to be.

Fleet Week is the weekend that New York welcomes hundreds of sailors to town.  Neptune refers to the sea…and things are especially bewildering this year, as the sailors have apparently traded alcohol for other transporting experiences.  Neptune also refers to drugs…and apparently druglords can be tourists in New York, too. And we’re hearing about it now.

Neptune refers to water in general…and charity. Here’s an apt story: “NYC-based investment firm helps Detroit residents pay water bills, avoid shutoff”. Meanwhile….toxins? Poisons? Music? Neptune!Stronger Regulations of Toxic Chemicals” is the headline of Monday’s NYT editorial. Elsewhere, B.B. King’s daughters have alleged that their father, who passed away last week, was poisoned.

Wait — there’s more. Neptune-Mars suggests a potential for scandal. Case in point: Josh Duggar, the eldest son of the Duggar tribe resigned his post at the Family Research Council after he was “forced to acknowledge” that he had been investigated for molesting underage girls when he was a teenager.

Before I glanced at planetary patterns on March 3, 1988 (Duggar’s birthdate), I had a strong hunch we’d find a challenging relationship between Mars and Neptune. Sure enough, they are together. along with Saturn and Uranus. Challenging indeed. Astrology is amazing.

Alrighty, then. I hope you’ve enjoyed this little focus on (mostly) Neptune. We’re likely to see plenty of similarly-themed stories this week — and now you know about the planetary patterns they will reflect. Those born in the first ten days of Gemini, Sagittarius, Pisces and Virgo are more likely to be affected than most.

As always, if you’d like to find out how planetary patterns are influencing whatever bewildering state you might be in…and how to successfully chart a course through all that fog…then by all means schedule a personal consultation. Here’s the 411.

 

Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday 3/27/2013: Full Moon in Aries

Writing this shortly after the exact square between Mars and Pluto (11:44PM ET on Tuesday),  suggesting “news from underground”. Not surprisingly, an earthquake in Taiwan just made headlines. Not a monster one, mind you, but still…and here’s an article about earthquakes in The Netherlands, caused by the natural gas industry.

This volatile day kicks off with the Full Moon in Libra opposing the Aries Sun at 5:27AM ET, putting relationship issues in the spotlight. Fairness, equality, the letter of the law — all that jazz. A surprise jolt, revelation or other disruption of the status quo (especially demands for independence) is due around 8:05AM ET, as rebel Uranus opposes the balance-seeking Moon. But wait, there’s more: a jolly trine to Moon from Jupiter expands the fullness of emotions already heightened, and minutes later, that Moon is sorely challenged by combative contact from ruthless Pluto and aggressive Mars at 1:27PM ET and 2:17PM ET, respectively. Curb your temper and duck if someone wants to pick a fight; passions are running high, especially for those with planets between 8 and 11 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.  Otherwise, you can make your case with great conviction, especially if you do so before the Moon goes void at 2:14PM ET.

In the void, debate over what’s fair and just may well continue. As reported earlier, Moon will be void until 8:54PM ET on THURSDAY. Chill and roll with whatever twists crop up. Learn to be patient. There’s still a lot going on that is building to a release tomorow — and we’re already seeing events in the headlines today. For example, on Thursday, Venus (art, women, finance) in pioneering Aries, meets up with the Aries Sun and ground-breaking Uranus, suggesting self-absorbed idealism and also unconventional attractions, relationships and shake-ups in the financial and aesthetic sectors. Tuesday’s headlines included a woman being nominated to head the Secret Service (a first); an outrageous fine art purchase by a hedge fund manager whose company was recently fined over $600 million, apparently without impacting said manager’s standard of living; and Panera announcing a “pay what you want” pricing system in some of its stores.  Innovative! Another startling headline: “BRICS Nations Plan New Bank to Bypass IMF, World Bank” is sure to shake up the status quo (with thanks to the avid reader who sent that in).

But wait, there’s more! In addition to the gripping arguments presented to the SCOTUS yesterday and today (highlights and audio are here — and they really are gripping), a court in Italy overturned the acquittal of Amanda Knox, and ordered a new trial. Shocking! When Knox’s horoscope was discussed in this forecast a couple of years ago, I did note that right about now, rebel Uranus, ruler of her 10th house (career/public status) would square her Mercury (communication, mindset), which rules her Gemini Ascendant and her 5th house of creative self-expression. Seemed like a perfect time for Ms. Knox to publish a book (due out on April 30th). But as we saw in Matt Lauer’s horoscope last week, Uranus transits can be unpredictable and stunning. They disrupt the status quo! Looking at her horoscope again, it is also clear that stern Saturn (ruling Knox’s 9th house — the law) is also challenging the area of her horoscope related to public status, as well as ruthless Pluto. Saturn-Pluto transits are usually difficult, and this one is in effect for Ms. Knox until fall.

Regarding the Defense of Marriage Act, which is the headline event at the Supreme Court today. President Bill Clinton signed this bill into law (read about that here) at 12:50AM on September 21, 1996 in Washington, DC. The chart for DOMA is amazing because it is so clear that it would be prominently in the public eye at this time, and so ready for change! No time to get into the details, at 648 words and counting — but if you’re a student of astrology, take a look at it.

Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday 3/26/2013: Order in the Court

Chag Pesach Semeach!

Such an appropriate week to be celebrating liberation from slavery, given the focus on freedom and independence in current planetary patterns. Even the Obamas hosted a seder, which apparently they’ve done every year since 2008. Who knew?

As reported yesterday, there are no lunar aspects today. Moon is still in Virgo and still void. Does your desk need to be cleaned? Got a closet that needs to be organized? Such tasks can be richly rewarding, and there’s plenty of high-octane energy to attack such projects, with willful Mars in a supportive connection with expansive Jupiter, exact at 6:27AM ET. An early morning workout isn’t a bad idea, either. Really, find a constructive way to blow off some steam.

With the Moon waxing full,  so are emotions.In Virgo, the need to be correct is paramount. Who’s finding fault with you now? Try not to take it personally,  and choose your battles verrrrry carefully. If you’re really on the side of the angels, stand your ground and push for a breakthrough. If not, let it go. Many will be noticing more than the usual stress in relationships this week. See yesterday’s forecast for those most likely to be affected.

Moon enters Libra at 5:32PM ET, shifting the focus from perfection to fairness and integrity in relationship…which could be a challenge, given ruthless Pluto squaring aggressive Mars just before midnight ET. Well, at least you will know where you stand…

 

All of the above make an intriguing backdrop for two major cases to be argued before the Supreme Court today and tomorrow — both involving freedom and equality in relationship; i.e. same-sex marriage. Here’s a historical perspective on the issue — and you’ll note that the article gives 1969 as the start of the gay rights movement. Yes, 1969 — shortly after the Uranus-Pluto conjunction that reflected so much revolution around the globe…and here we are now, with the Uranus-Pluto square.  Astro-logical patterns suggest this is the time to move forward, not backward.

While many are saying that Justice Kennedy will be the decisive vote in a possible 5-4 decision, Justice Antonin Scalia has also been getting press, as some wonder how he will behave as the arguments are presented. Scalia’s horoscope is under pressure  from Mars and the Uranus-Pluto square — specifically, a point that refers to dealings with the public (and how he needs to evolve in this lifetime). Still another point that refers to the potential for combat in relationships is highlighted this week, as follows: “energy helping or upsetting relationship; sexual awareness in partnership; drive for fulfillment” (astrologer Noel Tyl, describing aggressive Mars on the Sun/Moon midpoint). Coincidence or conspiracy?

Meanwhile, an avid reader shared a surreal conversation that happened yesterday, during the Moon void. And you wonder why people ask “Is Mercury retrograde?” during voids…

Calling AT&T tech support this morning, including half hour of hold time…
Me: “Good morning, one of our tv receivers seems to be broken, making a loud buzzing sound and picture is freezing.”
AT&T: “Are you calling about your phone, internet or tv?”
Me: “(see above)”
AT&T: “What seems to be the problem?”
Me: “(see above)”
AT&T: “Your receiver appears to be broken.”
Me: “!”
AT&T: “Please return it in the box provided within 10 days.”
Me: “What box?”
AT&T: “The box the new one comes in. You will be receiving this in 24-48 days.”
Me: “Days?”
AT&T: “Yes, 24-48 hours. Thank you for calling AT&T.”
