Thank you!"

Monday 1/9/2017: Sneak Peek at the Week; Mercury Direct; Meryl Streep, Right on Schedule

Good morning!

Note your dreams this AM, as the info-junkie Gemini Moon is challenged by visionary Neptune at 9:09 AM ET. Neptune aspects can be fuzzy, and combined with Mercury’s move forward Sunday in sloppy (but righteous) Sagittarius, you may need to take it slow. A day with Moon in Gemini suggests a need to be the smartest kid in the room; to chat up a storm; to seek out the facts — but still…

Not that the electrifying and rebellious buzz generated by Uranus making a hard contact with the Sun on TUESDAY at 11:21 AM ET is inclined to be patient. Combine that with the rising emotions reflecting the Moon waxing to its fullness (on THURSDAY). Add the yuge potential for expansive and empowered action suggested by WEDNESDAY’s challenge between the Sun and bigly Jupiter, along with a harmony between Mars (action) and Pluto (power). Color it prominently rose, suggested by a meet-up between Venus and Neptune on THURSDAY, along with Mercury — now direct — at the Aries Point.

Bottom line: the rush to act rebelliously is supported; however, chances are good that the action plan needs a re-think. We’ll see if it gets one.

The Gemini Moon goes void on TUESDAY between 4:38 PM ET and 5:49 PM ET — you might not even notice. On THURSDAY, however, the Cancer Full Moon goes void at 6:34 AM ET…not to enter Leo — the next sign — until 7:08 PM ET. That’s a heads up to focus on routine concerns and not make a mountain out of a molehill. And no impulse shopping, if you please. Roll with whatever twists and flakes may crop up in your efforts to move forward in a straight line. If you oversleep, don’t worry — you probably did not miss anything of consequence. Chill!

That’s the overview of planetary pattern for this week.

And now, the news.

On a day with Mercury turning direct in Sagittarius — a sign not known for its attention to detail — we could expect a few glitches in print. Even a newspaper like  The Guardian — usually a reliable source — can screw up. “Barack Obama says Donald Trump may have ‘enough craziness’ to be president,” is the headline that’s been on its home page all day — and that’s not what President Obama said at all. Which you’d find out if you read the first paragraph of the article:

Barack Obama thinks Donald Trump is “very engaging and gregarious” and “not lacking in confidence”, to the point where he may have “enough craziness to think [he] can do the job”.

Yuge difference there — right? C’mon, Guardian proofreaders! Stay focused and pay attention to planetary patterns!

Meanwhile, a newspaper in Germany has taken pains to dispute an utterly false story reported by Breitbart. No, hundreds of Muslims did not set fire to an historic church on New Year’s Eve.  And if these fake news stories tick you off, the NYT offers this empowering piece: “How to Destroy the Business Model of Breitbart and Fake News.”  More effective than signing your name to a petition — go for it!

Last Monday, the top story was the secret vote taken by members of the Republican Congress to hobble the Office of Congressional Ethics. Ordinary voters  were given credit for helping to save it by flooding the offices of Congressional members with phone calls — depending on where you get your news. Over the weekend, ethics was again a hot topic. Why? Because there are at least nine Senate confirmation hearings scheduled to begin this week — for incoming Cabinet nominees who have not yet been cleared by the Office of  Government Ethics: “Ethics Office Warns Confirmations for Trump Nominees Are Moving Too Fast.”

Let the record show that House Majority Leader Mitch McConnell clearly outlined his expectations for how Cabinet nominees were to be vetted and confirmed — in a letter to Harry Reid dated February 12, 2009. This is one of two must-sees in today’s forecast. His response to Democrats demanding the same standards now: “Grow up.”   If you’d like to contact Senator McConnell and remind him of the courageous letter he wrote back in 2009, here’s how to contact him. You’ll also find contact info for all members of the Senate. Phone calls are more effective than emails.

UPDATE: Meryl Streep, whose horoscope I ve been following for several years. She and Elizabeth Warren are astrotwins — born on the same day and year — at the beginning of Cancer, suggesting an essential being focused on caring and emotional/home (land) security. Their Suns are conjoined with Uranus, a planet symbolizing rebellion and lightning bolt clarity. They are both born to be prominent — as fiercely humanitarian individualists, daring to buck the system. Their Moons are in Taurus, also seeking comfort and stability — but in a material form. They need to build something tangible out of all that caring energy. You can feel that, right? As if they are cut from the same cloth. They are!

Two years ago I wrote about Ms. Streep’s horoscope and noted the strong potential for significant recognition right about now, given that transiting Pluto is squaring her Midheaven.  Action to the Midheaven suggests action in matters  of reputation and professional status. Pluto suggests fame and empowerment, and it will hit Ms. Streep’s MC three times in 2017. 

Last night, with transiting Mercury (communication) at the Aries Point, thus making contact with her Sun and Uranus conjunction, Ms. Streep was awarded the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award at the Golden Globes. Her acceptance speech is the other must-see item in this forecast. It lit up social media and brought many listening to tears.

Astrology is amazing. Want to know when you’re likely to win an award — and/or otherwise rock the world? Consult your local astrologer. Here’s the 411 on consultations. Together we will plan a strategy for this New Year.

Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 11/3/2014: Sneak Peek at the Week; Bill Cosby

Happy Monday!

Focus on routine tasks in the early part of the day, as the Moon is void-of-course in Pisces until 1:53PM ET.  What is a Moon void, some of you new to this forecast may wonder. Have you ever played on an old-fashioned pinball machine? The ball bounces off those rubber bumpers with force and direction, lighting up the board and scoring points. Eventually the ball stops making contact with the bumpers and rolls down to the bottom of the machine. If you imagine that the Moon is the pinball and those bumpers are planets, the last contact the pinball makes with a bumper is equivalent to the last contact the Moon makes with a planet while it is in a particular sign, such as Pisces. The time it takes for the pinball to fall back down to the bottom of the machine and be relaunched (into the next sign, such as Aries), is like a Moon void.  The pinball rolls back down without much force, and sometimes there is a delay, as the pinball gets stuck on the side of the machine. So it can be with a void-of-course Moon. Got that?

We have a few long Moon voids this week, during which your efforts to move forward in a straight line may feel like you’re herding cats. Roll with whatever twists and flakes crop up and resist the temptation to make mountains out of molehills. Avoid impulse shopping and finalizing plans. Otherwise, chill out. Here are the voids, in addition to today: Wednesday 8:25AM ET – 4:33PM ET; Friday 11:17AM ET – 8:45PM ET.

It’s full speed ahead once the Moon charges into Aries at 1:53PM ET, ready to get something started with fiery conviction. Never mind those pesky details; just jump! Upsets and/or revelations, as well as power plays — for better or for worse — are likely tomorrow morning, as the Moon makes its weekly clash with the never-ending Uranus-Pluto square at 9:07AM and 12:29PM ET. But first, be aware of another charged clash between the Moon and action hero Mars at 12:52AM ET, suggesting you pay close attention behind the wheel and avoid ego-driven confrontations. Better to apply this brief power surge to a creative project or something productively physical.

Other patterns of note this week include the Full Moon in Taurus on Thursday and Mercury entering Scorpio on Saturday. Humming in the background is a fast-approaching challenge between an extremely effective Mars in Capricorn to Uranus and Pluto, which will be exact next Monday and Wednesday. What kind of events can we expect? Here’s what happened in April; here’s what happened in June.

And now, the news, brought to you in part by Saturn in nitty-gritty things we might prefer not to face in matters of sex and death.

First, Brittany Maynard passed away on Saturday at age 29. Ms. Maynard was diagnosed some months ago with terminal brain cancer and made a decision to end her life “on her own terms,” rather than let the disease run its course. She moved to Oregon and made headlines as the poster child for those advocating the right to die with dignity (as one can in Oregon). It is interesting to note her passing on a day with Moon in Pisces (endings), Mars (action) in a cooperative connection with Neptune (drugs, spirit, surrender), along with other exact patterns noted in prior forecasts.

Second, comedian Bill Cosby is making headlines again. Back in September I noted the release of a new biography about the iconic comedian, which was reflective of general planetary patterns. But obviously something suggesting prominence would have been going on in his horoscope, especially since the reason Mr. Cosby is making headlines this month is because a male comedian (Hannibal Buress) called him a rapist several weeks ago in his stand-up act.  And in fact, Mr. Cosby was accused of sexual assault/abuse almost a decade ago, and thirteen women were going to testify against him…until the case was settled out of court.

These allegations were raised again back in February by Salon, but the article did not generate much traction. Now, within a few days, we have Burress’s shout-out going viral and a lengthy account by Barbara Bowman, a woman who did not settle, now detailing  the whole sordid, OMG-must-we-know-all-these-awful-things, tale. (Yes, we must. With Saturn in Scorpio, we can’t look away. Even though we were able to back in 2006).

So what’s going on in Bill Cosby’s horoscope? How about ruthless Pluto turning direct and making contact with the top of his horoscope for the FIFTH and final time since 2013? That’ll get you prominence: a new biography, a new sitcom and — oh yeah, those sexual assault allegations you thought were buried. Not with Pluto.

Next year Uranus will be making contact with Cosby’s me-me-me Aries Ascendant and his emotional security-seeking Cancer Sun. Other patterns reinforce the suggestion of a break-out and an overturning of the status quo. I am intrigued by a measurement to his perfection-driven Virgo Moon suggesting a trauma up for healing, especially since the Moon is part of a pattern in his horoscope called a Grand Trine. I learned from Noel Tyl how Grand Trines, traditionally viewed as “lucky”, also function as defensive structures, which allow the native to act as if the laws others must follow do not apply to him or her. We shall see.

Meanwhile, headlines in Canada are currently focused on allegations of serial sexual assault that resulted in the firing of media personality Jian Ghomeshi. Sign of the times.

And speaking of the Times, the New York Times would like you to know  — in a pithy article — that Bill Cosby and Hannibal Buress will be performing in the New York Comedy Festival this weekend. But not on the same stage.

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.
