"I'm a skeptic by nature and I still don't know how she does it, but Elisabeth told me more about myself and about critical points in my life than she could've known beforehand or can possibly be dismissed as coincidence or a parlor trick. 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 Tuesday 11/4/2014: It’s All About You

Moon continues its charge through me-me-me Aries, needing to be an inspiring pioneer. Jangled nerves, a heady buzz or other revelation, as well as intense emotions may be on deck during the morning hours ET, as Moon makes contact with ruthless Pluto and rebel Uranus at 9:07AM and 12:29PM ET. After, we’re free and clear.

Aries can be an inspiring crusader and a passionate champion of the underdog. It can be impulsive, impatient and yet utterly courageous. It’s always up for something new and daring. If you want to motivate an Aries, tell them a task is impossible. They’ll work overtime to prove you wrong.

Aries can be also be self-absorbed. Like this NYT video interview with uninformed slackers who explain why they aren’t going to bother voting today. They can’t possibly see what might be in it for them. Did you know that the biggest political party in the US isn’t Democratic or Republican? It’s the party that does not vote. Which  means that the outcome of today’s midterm election might be decided by about 40% of eligible voters.  Yea verily, those statistics suggest we Americans totally suck at democracy, even as we brag about how great our system is. What’s up with that?

There’s a saying that’s been around for 90 years or so, credited to a number of pastors — and also to actress and activist Irene Dunne. She was a righteous Sagittarius with Moon in Aries, and in 1945 she said in a radio broadcast:

If we don’t stand for something, we’ll fall for anything.

Here’s The Daily Show’s  Jon Stewart, skewering an example of something you can avoid falling for, if you take the time to be informed. If you are not familiar with Koch Industries, check it out, as this organization is very much involved in today’s election.

Your mission today is to not be a self-absorbed slacker. Stand up and be counted, even if the task seems impossible and even if the media outlets have already predicted which way the votes will go.  In the words of the great Yogi (Berra), “It ain’t over ’til it’s over.”  Here’s what’s at stake, suggested by the Uranus-Pluto square, along with this and this, among other things.  Waaaaaaaaaake uppppppppp!

An election during an Aries Moon does suggest a need for something new, as opposed to Moon in Taurus, which would suggests keeping things as they are. Two years ago, I  looked at the chart for the start of the 114th Congress on January 3rd, 2015. It would seem to be a  body that needs to shake up the system — but with what agenda? I will write more about that chart tomorrow.

Meanwhile, here’s Beth Owlsdaughter’s Tarot Card of the Week, always curiously in synch with planetary patterns. Yesterday’s card pull was “unprecedented” and startling, drawn as it was during a void-of-course Moon. The unexpected twist that turned up is the card I associate with the never-ending Uranus-Pluto square, which will be triggered by aggressive Mars next week and exact for the sixth of seven times on December 15th.

If you’re still not inspired by today’s crusading Moon in Aries drive, here’s a song to inspire you as you make your way to the polls. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. Shine!

What’s going on in your horoscope? That nagging need to make a change will likely be affirmed by planetary patterns, so you can move forward with confidence. Here’s the 411 on personal consultations.

Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday 9/12/2012: Let It Shine

So yesterday was September 11th, and it was the 11th anniversary of an act of violence that stunned the world and resulted in the loss of thousands of lives. I couldn’t bring myself to acknowledge this in yesterday’s forecast because, frankly, I was living in New York on That Day. Then I noted someone on Facebook opining that on every September 11th since, all of America gets very patriotic, while New Yorkers just get somber and quiet. So I thought, “OK, I’ll post something.”  After all, the Moon was in Cancer (needing to focus on homeland/emotional security; America is a Cancer nation, etc.), and it was slowly approaching a square to serious Saturn, suggesting a need for gravitas.

Here’s what I wrote:

What I remember about That Day was how quiet the city became in the aftermath. We gathered at night in public places, needing the support of community. We gave up our defensive edges. We slowed down. Drivers did not honk their horns. With whomever we met in the course of the day, we would take the time to look into each others’ eyes and ask, with heartfelt sincerity, “how are you”?

We approached each other with such loving kindness — back then — perhaps because we were all so conscious of our collective shock and grief. Everyone seemed to know someone who knew someone who had died…or was at Ground Zero and escaped, covered in ash…or was supposed to be there, but Fate intervened, and they missed their train or their appointment in the city was canceled or whatever. Point is, we all had a story to tell…and a connection to this experience that connected us to each other. We were able to see ourselves in each other.

Time passes…it heals wounds…and we forget. And often, we forget the connection. Separation — which is an illusion — creeps back in. It’s us against them. We racing to get here, there, everywhere. We get impatient with each other and start honking our horns again…or worse. And yes, I do have a thing against people who honk their horns and I have a byline to prove it. Point is, we are still sharing the same human experience — in a Big Picture, yet profoundly simple way. Even though we may forget.

These thoughts led me to decide as my tribute to 9/11,  I would pretend to be an exalted human being — and try to act accordingly — during the course of my errands in the city. That meant taking the time to consciously assess whomever I  engaged and imagining myself in their position before promoting my own agenda.

The employee behind the counter at Pret A Manger, for example, was a 20-something man with a wonderfully grounded, friendly intelligence. I thought about where he was at in his life — working behind a counter for probably not much more than minimum wage — and I wondered what his dreams might be at this nascent stage of his career. And as we were discussing the comparative merits of the caffeinated beverages offered at this fine establishment, I found myself telling him what a great job he was doing, and that I was certain his attitude and attentive presence would take him very far in life. I put my two dollars on the counter to pay for my coffee (decided not to spring for the cappuccino), and darned if he didn’t say, “It’s on the house”.

What a delightful surprise. What a lovely connection.

And what, pray tell, does this have to do with anything astro-logical?  How about this: with today’s Moon in playful, regal, sunny Leo, you are encouraged to let your light shine! Practice senseless acts of beauty and acts of random kindness. Remember, that was the challenge presented at the beginning of this lunar cycle — the New Moon was in Leo on Aug 17th, right? Show the world the results of your intention. Shine! You’ll be aided by lovely connections to the Moon from loving Venus and electric Uranus,  ’round about lunchtime on the East Coast. You’ll be helped even more by another lovely connection between Venus and Uranus, suggesting you expand your networks and allow yourself to be open to encounters that are delightfully unconventional and unusual…based on the simple premise that we are all on the same ride in the big scheme of things. That stranger on the bus could be your new best friend, even if it’s just for the few minutes you share until you arrive at your stop.

And look…here’s a song to inspire you…so many versions to choose from. Take your pick of Odetta, the Boss or the Templet Family Band. A tough choice, for sure.OMG, here’s Brenda Lee, too.  The Odetta version opens with a passage written by Marianne Williamson that may give you chills….and…oh wow. Apparently Odetta sang this song(with the Harlem Boys Choir) on the first Letterman show after 9/11. I did not know that…until now.
