Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday 10/12/2010

Courteney Cox Arquette and David Arquette announced their split after 11 years of marriage, and I know the question on everyone’s mind has been — “Wow! Could this split be directly related to Venus turning retrograde and torpedoing their relationship?” If only it were so simple. A quick glance at Courteney’s chart (working without a known birth time, so my observations are limited),  two measurements leap out: 1) nebulous Neptune opposing Mars, planet of action, which runs wild in the horoscope, suggesting “change of course of action due to dissatisfaction; going to where the grass seems greener; losing focus” (source: astrologer Noel Tyl); and 2) Courteney’s Venus, planet of love/social expression, under extreme pressure from the heavies in the Big T-Square Party (see 7/27/2010 for details on Big T-Square Party) — all of this action has been in effect for a year. In David’s chart we see nebulous Neptune opposing Mercury (mind) and Jupiter-Neptune (Big Picture thinking; his need for reward), suggesting that his already active imagination is likely working overtime.  so bottom line, the only Venus retrograde that likely catalyzed this split is the retrograde Venus in Courteney’s own horoscope (very challenging position); the restless tension, bewilderment — perhaps feeling that there is something else better “out there” likely going on all year long.

Meanwhile, what’s up with this wacky weather? Thunder and lightning and HAIL in NYC as I type! Chalk this up to the third in a row of — get ready to learn a new astrological term — SUPER MOONS. A Super Moon is a New or Full Moon that occurs when the Moon is 90% or greater of its mean closest approach to Earth — the term was coined by astrologer Richard Nolle a few decades ago (so he says — no reason to believe otherwise) — and experience has shown that these New and/or Full Moons coincide with stronger tides, leading to heavy storms and other weather extremes. I’ve been reading his research for over a year now — and he’s been remarkably accurate about this phenomenon, calling the 11th-13th and the 18th-26th of this month as time spans of potential heavy weather action — so now I am sharing it with you.  August and September were also Super Moons; the next one happens in February 2011 — with likely serious winter weather.

For today, the first day back to work for East Coasters — we’ve got Moon (emotional response) in high flying Sagittarius, tossed around in the late afternoon by expansive Jupiter (4:15PM NY) and erratic Uranus (8:07PM NY). Could be some big ideas making a pitch — or an unsettling emotional encounter. Moon goes void at 8:07PM NY — take the evening off and relax.

Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday 9/28/2010

Lunar aspects today are fairly quiet, stable and constructive: the Moon is in Gemini, needing to inform and be informed, and is making a constructive connection to disciplined Saturn, helping us get the word out in a sober, practical way. Make the call, take the meeting, craft your pitch, build your network. Meanwhile, a few astrologers far more seasoned than I when it comes to forecasting seismic activity and intense weather patterns (why should Farmer’s Almanac have all the fun?) are noting a higher probability of such things from today through the end of the work week. Could this pattern be connected with Los Angeles’s record-shattering temperature yesterday of 113 degrees? 113 is pretty intense! Hmmm….

Astro-logical Forecast for Friday 9/17/2010 and the Weekend

“Bring it on!” “Make it happen!” Did I really write that yesterday? Mother Nature sure made it happen in my neck of the woods: a “tornado-like storm” landed right outside my building in the normally utterly uneventful town of Forest Hills. Talk about a massive release of energy — to be anticipated with all the planetary connections this week. So how was your Thursday?

(Fellow astrologers can analyze the astrology of this event: about 5:40PM Forest Hills, NY 9/16/2010)

I have a confession to make: I don’t always post certain possibilities in this forecast — I prefer to stay positive. After all, planets don’t do things, people do! So I didn’t write yesterday that the Jupiter (expansion) — Uranus (bolt from the blue, shock to the system) in Pisces (water, water everywhere) might bring about certain sudden, unusual, forceful weather — such as a storm! So perhaps I’ll go on record more often. And I’ll remind you all to put together your emergency kit if you haven’t done so already: water, canned food, cash, first aid kit, etc. Put one in your car, too! We are in a volatile planetary cycle – meaning Mother Nature is more inclined to “make it happen” than usual. And it’s hard to forecast exactly where these events will occur. So be prepared. And have a great day!

Aside from further outbursts likely related to the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction that’s exact on Saturday, Friday should feel relatively balanced. Still a good day to get things accomplished, even if you’re leaving work early for a day of atonement. Saturday has plenty of connections to a Moon in the sign of socially significant Aquarius, an air sign (please, no more storms). Sunday should be quieter than Saturday. Monday the Moon is void from 9:09AM – 4:15PM on the East Coast. Read the bonus forecast on 8/4/2010 (all about Moon voids) and phone it in, if you’re living on EST.
