Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday & Thursday 7/1-2/2015: Full Moon in Capricorn; Chris Christie; Return of the Hathors

Good Morning!

Moon entered enterprising, Capricorn at  5:11AM, bringing the fiery and lofty aspirations of the past two  days of Moon in Sagittarius down to earth. What can you build on those high ideals?  Look for a boost or a bump in the action around 1:32PM ET, as the strategizing Moon opposes a sensitive (and possibly cranky) Mars in Cancer. Not the time to pick a fight.

The day’s practical agenda is infused with celebratory fallout from yesterday’s meet-up between Venus and Jupiter. Did you see them together in the sky last night? These girls probably did.

Add in a rosy-dreamy alignment between the Sun and Neptune, exact at 5:10pm ET. Mix with the rising tide of emotion that releases at 10:20pm ET, on the Full Moon, which is also aligned with Neptune. Stir it all up with a very active Mercury, which refers to mindset and communication. It touches base with three planets over the next three days, suggesting much potential for innovation, expansion and idealism. Make that pitch, if you haven’t already done so.

Tomorrow we’ll have more of the same, with a potential power play around 6AM ET, as Moon meets up with Pluto…followed by an upset or revelation around 4PM ET, with Moon makes its weekly clash with Uranus.

Here are the Sabian Symbols for this Full Moon. For the Sun at 10 Cancer: “a large diamond not completely carved”. For the Moon at 10 Capricorn: “an albatross feeding from the hand”. Sabian Symbol guru Blain Bovee suggests these two share themes of “adamantine resolve” and “grace in the rough or refined gracelessness”.  How so?

Think of a diamond in the rough. It’s one-of-a-kind, with awesome creative potential — but not quite there yet. It’s hard and faceted, as all diamonds are.

Albatrosses are “sometimes awkward, sometimes graceful…bestowed with the gift of nourishment”. Bovee offers more intriguing observations. He notes that albatrosses are known for being clumsy, with disparaging names like “stupid gull” and “gooney bird”. And who knew that while “alba” means “white”, “‘albatross’ is actually a corruption of the Portuguese alcatraz, a notorious prison”. I love etymology.

You could have a field day connecting these images with current headlines. Against the backdrop of this week’s planetary patterns, you might see — for example — the visionary exuberance of Governor Chris Christie tossing his hat into the Republican pool of presidential contenders. The New York Times sees the potential downside of these patterns: lies, excess and bluster. A local New Jersey paper is equally unimpressed. What is nebulous Neptune doing in Governor Christie’s horoscope?

Even without a birth time, we see Neptune making contact with his Virgo Sun, suggesting a need for vision. Neptune is also part of a Grand Trine among expansive Jupiter and Mars. This combination can run long on faith and fog; short on facts. While a Grand Trine is often considered a lucky pattern, suggesting the ability to function as if it is above the law, it also suggests a defensive posture, i.e., a projection of emotional self-sufficiency which acts against relationship.

Transiting Neptune may be casting its rose-colored spell on Christie’s Moon, if it is in high-flying, righteously opinionated Sagittarius. It’s definitely in touch with his natal Sun-Pluto conjunction, boosting  a need for what is ideal, but also presenting perhaps a long stretch of confusion/delusion.  Meanwhile, Christie’s square between Mercury (mind, communication) and Mars (action), certainly reflects his trademark brash communication style. With transiting Jupiter conjoining his Sun-Pluto this fall and again next May, he is likely to gain traction and further expansion — for better or for worse.

Meh. Enough with the news.

Also reflecting the potential for sublime vision, benevolence, innovative communication with practical application, guess what just showed up in my emailbox? Angels! This is the topic of the latest missive from my favorite disembodied entities, The Hathors — as channeled by sound healer Tom Kenyon. In past forecasts I’ve noted the potential for a volatile summer in the world arena. The Hathors have a knack for sending messages just before a “chaotic node” — as they call it — begins.  Coincidence or conspiracy?

Never fear, however, because fear is counterproductive. Thank you for reading this forecast.

 

Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 8/1/2013: Breakouts, Breakthroughs & the Next Few Days

Buzz, buzz, buzz…the information buzz of a stimulated Gemini Moon continues today. A self-indulgent challenge to Venus (women, money, beauty) and a harmonious connection with the proud Leo Sun are two reasons why you could wake up with a big smile on your face. I don’t know about you, but on my morning commute I noted hardly any horn honking and no jams at all. I hope your travels were equally pleasant.

Also adding to the cooperative spirit, especially among normally warring factions, is a lovely connection between Venus (women, social expression) and Mars (men, action/aggression), exact on Friday at 4:35PM ET. How fortunate for those of you with dates and other social engagements this weekend, as making love and peace becomes — for a brief moment — more important than making war. Why, even the warring factions in Congress managed to get something done yesterday, when they voted to reset and cap rates on student loans. Meanwhile, a debate on chivalry and other social graces was posted on the NYT homepage….and not a moment too soon.

We are in the balsamic phase of the lunar cycle. This is a time to wrap up projects from your New Moon agenda; the next New Moon happens Tuesday evening (ET). Ship it if you can by 12:48PM ET, when the Moon goes void-of-course until just after midnight on Saturday. Otherwise, be prepared for a restless lull best suited to chilling out, creative brainstorming and drafting (but not signing or sealing) and contemplating the stunning breakthroughs and breakouts we’ve witnessed in the past several days. You really know what I’m talking about in your own personal world if you have a planet or point around 9-13 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn…or if you have a significant planet or point at around 4-7 degrees of Scorpio, Aquarius, Leo and Taurus. Been busy, have you?

With yesterday’s challenge between action-hero Mars and rebel Uranus, exact last night around 11PM ET, we expected breakouts, breakthroughs and a bit of bad (rash, reckless) behavior. How fascinating to wake up this morning and read that Edward Snowden has been granted temporary asylum in Russia, releasing him from the confines of the Moscow airport transit zone. In a related story, details of the XKeystore program were also released. This is the genius bit of technology that allows an entity such as the NSA to collect “nearly everything a user does on the Internet”. Also in technology: a “milestone” is reached by a company that converts waste matter into fuel — potentially way cool. Another breakout making headlines: convicted felon OJ Simpson was granted partial parole — but he’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Also going “nowhere”, but still making breakout headlines:  in Texas, George Zimmerman was pulled over for speeding — and yes, he had his gun with him (students of astrology will note the position of Saturn and Uranus to the angles of the chart for traffic stop: 12:54PM CT 7/31/13 in Forney, Texas). Reckless behavior headed for a full stop?

Last, but not least — this just in from outer space (also a Mars-Uranus concern) or at least some outer dimension. Sound healer Tom Kenyon posted the latest missive from a group of disembodied entities who call themselves The Hathors. Someone turned me on to Kenyon’s website ten years ago, and what I found fascinating was that whatever the Hathors had to say was always in tune with planetary patterns. What they talk about in terms of climate change, government/institutional breakdowns & breakthroughs — and especially the crisis in spiritual evolution and consciousness that we face collectively on Planet Earth — is mirrored by the ongoing Uranus-Pluto square and other significant alignments, etc., etc.  What they als0 offer (via Kenyon) is a number of practical meditation techniques to keep you grounded and clear in these challenging times. That is why I find their posts relevant and helpful. If you decide to check out the The Hathors, I recommend starting with the first posts on Kenyon’s site. Their recent posts explaining how they see the true nature of physical reality and how human souls are connected energetically to that which we do not ordinarily perceive, may be daunting. However, the latest post is pretty self-contained.  You’ll have plenty of material to explore and maybe try a meditation over the next two days, during this verrrrrry long Moon-void. Enjoy whatever twists and surprises crop up in your journey…
