Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday 10/30/2013: More on the Planetary Pattern Everyone Should Be Talking About

So…yesterday’s forecast is applicable today, but since I did not post until noon ET, you may not have read it. Here it is again — entitled “The Planetary Pattern Everyone Should Be Talking About” — please share it with all your friends and relations, as this is super-helpful information for understanding what’s happening in the world.

Moon is still in Virgo (read about that in the link above). The mood is a little lighter, as we are moving away from the heavy Mercury-Saturn hook-up. And yet there’s more intensity and more buzz (again, see link above). Keep your nose to the grindstone and by the time 10:48PM ET rolls around, the Moon will go void on a pleasantly indulgent challenge between loving Venus in rollicking Sagittarius and the discriminating Virgo Moon. During the void, no harm, no foul — and no consequences likely —  for whatever happens after hours, inspired by a deep, juicy and resourceful connection between energetic Mars and potent Pluto at 6:45AM ET on Thursday. The void ends at 8:22AM ET on Thursday; East Coasters may feel a little slow about getting the day started, but West Coasters have no excuse.

OK, the news. Reflecting planetary patterns, here’s a heavy Mercury-Saturn meets revolutionary Uranus-Pluto piece entitled “How Science is Telling Us All to Revolt”. Provocative, daunting and controversial. How are we ever going to figure this out? Meanwhile, nebulous Neptune is in Pisces, which you may recall from past posts — as far back as a few years ago — suggests that water (or lack thereof) in all forms — including oceans — will become a major concern during Neptune’s 14-year sojourn through the sign it rules. Add Neptune in Pisces to the disruptive  Uranus-Pluto square and see it reflected in countless stories, including this heavy article called “The Ocean Is Broken”.

Sure, you could put a SEP field around it & not read these weighty articles, but a SEP field won’t solve the challenges, and planetary patterns suggest this is not the time for hiding under the covers.  “Wake up and smell the coffee” — as Dear Abby or Ann Landers used to say, and put our collective intelligence and creativity to work in the service of the greater good. I don’t know about you, but I have to believe that once we recognize that the old way of doing things is not sustainable, a majority of us will come together to create one that is. And that’s an exciting possibility, also suggested by planetary patterns, in spite of said challenges.

In the 90s, I opined to anyone who cared to listen, that the mantra for the first decade of the New Millenium would be “we are all connected” — and whoever figured out how to build on that (Mark Zuckerberg, anyone?) would do very well. Too bad I don’t build things; I just help people, inspire them and keep them informed. And for the past five years or so, I’ve been thinking that the mantra for this decade is this: “sustainable”. What can we build on that?

Need a song to get you inspired? I’ve got one — it’s wonderfully idealistic —  written and performed by actual human beings — who can be ever so amazing when they get out of their own way.

Go out there and be amazing — on this brand new, beautiful day…

Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 8/8/2013

Finally, the Moon is fully in gear — no longer drifting aimlessly — but engaged in Virgo, sign of the organizing perfectionist. Now is the time to launch your New Moon initiatives: make the call; pitch the idea; send the documents.  A rosy idealistic glow starts the day, but soon gives way to an easy flow of practical concerns, attended to with depth and detail. Optimistic communication is suggested around 6:30PM ET, just in time for happy hour. This proactive vibe continues until 6:05PM ET Friday, when the Moon goes void with a sigh. Make the most of your time until then.

The other planetary shift today is mental Mercury, ruling mindset and communications, leaving emotional Cancer for prideful, roarin’ Leo. How many royal edicts will be issued between now and August 23rd, when Mercury leaves Leo for Virgo? Never mind; that’s a rhetorical question.

On the heels of yesterday’s face-off between heavyweights Jupiter in Cancer and Pluto in Capricorn, financial heavyweight JPMorgan revealed it is facing criminal and civil inquiries. Let the record show that this configuration directly impacts the horoscope of JPMorgan’s CEO, Jamie Dimon, discussed in prior forecasts (search the archives). It will be very interesting to see what is going on at that company around November 2, when lightning bolt Uranus adds its two cents to the conversation. A disruption of the status quo is suggested.

Last but not least — following up on yesterday’s post about the government of Japan now getting involved with the crisis at Fukushima, it was all I could do not to type in all caps GEEZ LOUISE, WHAT TOOK THEM SO LONG?  I could post news of staggering crises every day and chalk them all up to the ongoing Uranus-Pluto square, bemoaning stories like Governor Rick Scott of Florida moving full speed ahead on voter suppression appearing on the same day as this piece about the ecological collapse happening RIGHT NOW in Florida’s inland waters. It can be challenging to maintain balance and optimism during these historic planetary cycles, but we must…even though the fact is — as Edward Snowden has been kind enough to inform us — that we are all connected, whether we like it or not.

How to cope? Levity is an amazing coping strategy. Once upon a time I had a writing teacher who liked to say that drama is inspired by heroes; comedy is sparked by tragedy. Tasteless, ill-timed jokes are efforts to process information and sensory overload. Thus I must conclude that there is a giant SEP field hovering over those Floridian waters…and the SEP field over Fukushima may now be finally lifting (thank you, Uranus-Pluto sqaure). What? You’ve never heard of a SEP field? It is a most ingenious device, written about by Douglas Adams in his breathtakingly wry and observant book Life, the Universe and Everything (the third book in the series that began with The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy). I hope it makes you laugh.  If you haven’t read these books, you’re missing out on a real treat.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
