Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 1/24/2013: This ‘n That

Moon entering Cancer at 10PM ET on Wednesday shifts our focus to homeland/emotional security needs and women, for example. Toss in a humanitarian, egalitarian and cooperative connection between the Aquarian Sun and rebel Uranus in pioneering Aries and presto! — the ban against women serving in combat in the U.S. military is about to be lifted. Another breakthrough in a week of breakthroughs — even without an Equal Rights Amendment ratified, already.

Be mindful of the potential for surprise or other disruptions to the status quo around 8:45AM ET, as rebel Uranus challenges the sensitive (touchy-feely) Cancer Moon, possibly janglng nerves.  News of a power play, possibly ruthless, may hit the airwaves around 6:18PM ET, courtesy of Pluto. A need for stability as we integrate innovation likely required as a result of said power play/catharsis  kicks in as evening approaches.  We’ve got an interesting mix of patterns that will be exact tomorrow. On the one hand, a buoyant connection between the Sun and expansive Jupiter is sure to lift spirits. On the other hand, a sobering challenge between mental Mercury and disciplined Saturn presents a potential harsh reality check…and the Moon is waxing full (exact in Leo late Saturday night), so emotional energy is on the rise.

In other news, Hillary Rodham Clinton testified before Congress during yesterday’s Moon void and apparently there were plenty of knickers gotten into a twist. Much ado about nothing or actions without consequence — those are the usual results of Moon-void efforts to move forward in a straight line. Gambling and speculation are also on the front page, reflecting planetary patterns involving Jupiter (expansion, luck) and Uranus (risk). Did you know that Indiana is one of the biggest gambling states in the nation? Me neither…but now it is facing some stiff competition.  In the stock market, Apple may have posted stellar returns, but its stock is tanking. And in Kansas, those in charge are now working hard to eliminate the state’s income tax — now there’s a gamble. Perhaps they will turn the state into a casino, to make up the lost revenue. And speaking of gambling, Morgan Stanley is being sued — and the speculations made by some of its employees in the months before the big giant crisis of September 2008 (which many astrologers predicted, thank you very much) are being revealed…and it is not pretty.

Last but not least, an amusing op-ed by Joyce Wadler expresses bewilderment at her sudden bluntness in communication, given her usual conscious concern for courtesy in social interactions. Well, duh. One look at her birth date — January 2, 1948 — instantly shows her idealistic Sun- Mercury (mindset, communication) hook-up being supercharged by ruthless Pluto. Of course she’s being blunt. And if she was born in the late afternoon or in the evening, she has Moon in people-pleasing Libra also being supercharged by the ultimately emancipating and empowering Uranus-Pluto square. Which can serve her well in her stated ambition to focus on her comedy writing, now that she’s just taken a buyout from her employer. Looks pretty good over the next couple of years…and Joyce, if you’re reading this, give me a call and we’ll put it all in perspective.

I hope you all have enjoyed this forecast, because thanks to the disruptions suggested by the Moon-Uranus (computers) square, I have typed it thrice,  re-creating it from memory each time. Apparently there is a problem with my website hosting service, which is  — as forecast — quite unsettling. These moments when I neglect to “save” before attempting to post, in my earnest rush to provide you with information to help you through the day are moments when I am also compelled to say that at the bottom of this forecast (if you are receiving this by email) OR on the left-hand side of this page (if you are reading this on my website), there is a link/big gold button which you can click to make a donation, for those who are inclined to use it to express appreciation. Such expressions of appreciation would be preferable to the email I received minutes ago wanting to know why I haven’t been writing about the FUBAR battery problems that have grounded Boeing’s fleet of Dreamliner 787s. Thank you, Universe, for reminding me that I am not perfect and there is always room for improvement.

But you know who IS perfect? Mark Marshall at Interage, my invaluable web designer, whose prompt and cheerful response to my website crisis will now allow me to post today’s forecast. If you’re in need of a web guru, you have found him — no matter where you live.  Thank you, Mark, for everything you do.

And thank you for reading this forecast and for sharing it with the rest of the Free World. Have a fabulous day!

Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday 1/22/2013: Reach For The Stars

Big ideas and innovation — especially in technology and aero/outerspace. That’s what I’m thinking we’ll be seeing this week, thanks to a remarkably supportive alignment among the Sun (life force) and Mercury (communication, mindset) in humanitarian/technogeek Aquarius, expansive Jupiter in info-junkie Gemini and rebel Uranus in pioneering Aries. Jupiter-Uranus patterns are often experienced as lucky breaks or investment opportunities that turn out to be windfalls. They also suggest news from the cosmos, including astrology.

You are personally affected by this “breakthrough” pattern if you were born around the 26th of any month, of if you have a planet or an angle around 6 degrees of any sign, with a slight bonus to Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Gemini, Libra and Aquarius.  The potential down side — and there is always that potential — might be grandiose or bombastic behavior, or wretched excess. Alternately, you could be feeling so good that you can’t be bothered to create new opportunities even though the wind may be at your back. Don’t let this happen to you!

Today’s Moon is in chatty Gemini, where it has been buzzing around since 9:04AM ET on Monday, just before President Obama was sworn in (again) at his second public presidential inauguration. He had to be feeling pretty good, as his Moon is also in Gemini, and transiting Jupiter (the cosmic sugar daddy), is closely aligned with that Moon…for now. Another sign of popularity and personal happiness is Obama’s progressed Sun currently conjunct his natal Venus, where it has been hovering for several months.  This was one of the patterns that led to my post in September opining that Obama would be elected to a second term, along with other astro-logical observations about Obama’s horoscope, which you can read here.

Make the most of this week — especially today.  We’ve got a Moon waxing in light — good for initiating projects. We have planetary patterns remarkably receptive to your big ideas for reinventing the wheel. Are there caveats? Sure. Get it off your desk today if you can — or wait until Thursday. Moon will be void-of-course from 6:42AM ET to 10PM ET on Wednesday — and again on Friday from 3:35PM ET until 9:20AM ET on Saturday. Also note that Thursday may have a little turbulence, notably from hard aspects to the Moon and from aggressive energy running a bit wild on behalf of some rebel cause.

Astro-logical Forecast for Sunday & Monday 2/19-20/2012: Sneak Peek at the New Moon; A Nun’s Story

Networking, friendships, being of social significance, space cadets, a cerebral/scientific approach to emotions, freedom and independence — look for these themes to pull focus for the next two and a half days. Moon enters the humanitarian sign of Aquarius at 5:28AM ET, old buddy, old pal. Deal with whatever wet blanket or serious focus that may be required around 4:22AM ET, when Moon is challenged by Saturn (I’ll deal with this one in my dreams, and you can, too).

We are in the dark side of the Moon; the New Moon in Pisces is at 5:35PM ET on Tuesday.  That’s the time to light a candle and focus on your intentions for the next lunar cycle. Meanwhile, if you’re a meditative soul — or even if you’re not — take some time to tune in before Tuesday. What does your intuition tell you? A big clue to the theme of New Moon in Pisces is the Sun’s annual hook-up with nebulous Neptune — also in Pisces —  at 3:42PM ET on Sunday, combined with an  indulgent challenge to the Moon from expansive Jupiter. Note these keywords: soulful surrender, meditate, yoga, escape,intuition, fantasy, drugs, alcohol, go with the flow, bewilderment, illusion, deception, delusion, photography, film, higher realms, oil, oceans, sacrifice, empathy. It all spills over into Monday, too — sweetened by a connection between loving Venus and the Moon at 7:28AM ET that can carry you through the whole day.

Signs of nebulous Neptune on the NY Times homepage include an op-ed about drinking and drugging http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/19/opinion/sunday/bruni-whitney-houston-and-alcohols-toll.html?hp rising oil and gas prices, the “parade of stars and fans” paying tribute to Whitney Houston; and a gem of a column by Maureen Dowd about a former Hollywood starlet who became a nun — and who will be attending the Oscars next weekend because a documentary about her called “God Is Bigger Than Elvis” has been nominated. Talk about a Sun conjunct Neptune in Pisces story! Read how Dolores Hart left Hollywood for the cloister here http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/19/opinion/sunday/dowd-where-the-boys-arent.html?hp  and here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dolores_Hart

Since we looked at Cardinal Timothy Dolan’s horoscope in the last post, I thought it would be interesting to look (briefly)  at the horoscope of this former starlet-turned-nun. Will we see similar patterns?

Dolores Hart was born October 20, 1938 (time unknown) in Chicago, IL  She’s a Libra with Moon in Virgo, suggesting a need to be discerning, exacting and perfecting. Like Cardinal Dolan, there is a connection between Jupiter and Neptune — a reliable signal of the importance of spirit. The Jupiter-Neptune connection is not as big and bold as the pattern in Cardinal Dolan’s chart, but it’s definitely there; and Neptune is still very strong in other ways. Charisma — and the potential for glamour is suggested by a hook-up between Neptune and Mars; it’s likely that Neptune is also involved with the Virgo Moon, which adds idealism and the intangible to that need to be discerning, exacting and perfecting. Also of note: Saturn, suggesting discipline, patriarchy,authority, control, structure, ambition — making a strong statement about a potential obsession with the father…which perhaps evolved into the Father…or perhaps the Mother Superior. Hmmmmmm…. Also found in Dolan’s chart and Hart’s: strong connections between the Sun and expansive, sunny, philosophical Jupiter and resourceful, empowering Pluto. Let the record show that Hart is in fact the Reverend Mother Dolores Hart and Prioress of the Abbey (since 2001) where she resides. And as Maureen Dowd and Wikipedia both note, the Reverend Mother remains a voting member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Powerful!
