Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday 10/21/2015: Opportunity Knocks in a Horoscope

Allll-righty then!

Wednesday’s drive is brought to you by the Moon in humanitarian Aquarius, looking for a way to be appreciated for being such a good buddy to so many people, especially those on the fringe. It travels without much interference, boosted by an easy connection to mental Mercury at 6:11PM ET. You wanna talk about it rationally, with emotional detachment? Go for it. Because on Thursday at 5:20PM ET, Mercury will be challenged by ruthless Pluto, adding a mental catharsis or investigative power play to the mix. What news from underground will be added to what has already been uncovered this week?

And now, the news.

Monday’s election in Canada did result in a surprise upset, unless you’ve been reading this forecast regularly. If so, you were not surprised at all that Stephen Harper’s Conservative Party was soundly defeated by the opposition, and that Justin Trudeau will be Canada’s new prime minister. Astrology is amazing. And Mr. Harper’s lean, mean thinking machine of Mercury (mindset)-Saturn in Capricorn (conservative; authority)-Mars in Cancer (assertive homeland security needs) in a unsettling T-square pattern is out of a job. And Canada is out of Syria and Iraq.

Comedian John Oliver must be delighted, because he was hoping for an upset, too. It’s against the law in Canada for an outsider to tell a Canadian how to vote, but Mr. Oliver did it anyway. I wish I’d seen his informative and highly entertaining take on the three — (yes, there were three major contenders in the Canadian election), before I emailed Monday’s forecast to subscribers, but here it is now — just for them.  Watch and laugh uproariously…and experience the bewildering fog so notable in Canada’s horoscope (Neptune conjunct Ascendant), Stephen Harper’s(Sun opposite Neptune) and Justin Trudeau’s (Neptune opposing Saturn  — both square Ascendant). What a weird (Neptune), wacky (Canada’s Sun is conjunct Uranus). fiercely independent country it is, astro-logically speaking…

UPDATE: A few days ago I noted that we could expect supercharged action (and now, apparently disrupted ambition) from former Democratic presidential candidate Jim Webb, given patterns of stress in his horoscope. Today he bowed out as a Democratic contender…but hasn’t given up the idea of running as an Independent.

UPDATE: Paul Ryan’s horoscope has assertive and potentially expansive patterns involving his career for the next several days (not unlike VP Joe Biden). He reportedly took a meeting Tuesday to discuss running for House Speaker. No surprise, even if he did so reluctantly. Meanwhile, Harry Reid (D-NV) just endorsed him. And right this minute — 8:13PM ET — the NYT reports breaking news that yes, Mr. Ryan is willing to run for Speaker, if his party can get its act together. This comes less than two days before we see transiting Mars (action!) hitting his Midheaven (public status; career). Jeb Bush announced his campaign launch on a similar transit. Joe Biden will have this same transit exact on October 27th. You’re not surprised about any of this, either, being Avid Readers.

UPDATE:  My  world-famous 2016 Really Useful Mercury Retrograde Survival Guide Bookmarks are still available, and the number of times this link has been clicked compared to the number of actual requests received has me all confused. But perhaps you are confused by the ordering process. Please let me know if that is the case! Here’s what you do: just click this link.   It will take you to a lovely page with a gold DONATE button. Click on that gold button. It will take you to a PayPal page, which is how I am able to receive funds — unless you’d like to send me a check.

To help cover postage, lovely card stock for handwritten thank you notes and printing costs, I am asking $2.88 for one bookmark or $4.99 for three. Trust that they are beautifully designed. Really — would I send you anything that wasn’t? On the bookmark you’ll find the dates of 2016’s Mercury retrograde periods — there are FOUR of ’em. You’ll also find helpful reminders of how to handle the retrograde so you do not lose your mind. I am thrilled that many of you have ordered bookmarks for others, including Avid Reader Jane:

I would like to find out how much it would cost to get 10 Mercury retrograde bookmarks – I am so tired of my idiot friends who don’t get it, they just know something is off. To have your bookmark on hand to give them is the best idea ever.

My thoughts exactly. Make sure you include your snail mail address when you make your bookmark donation, as opposed to relying on telepathy.

OK, more news.

The lingering artsy idealism of Venus opposing Neptune! The enormous physical effort and optimism of last week’s Mars-Jupiter trine Pluto! A make-it-happen empire-friendly Moon in Capricorn during Monday Night Football….and why not air the trailer for STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS? The movie opens on Christmas Day. It will be a HUGE ENTERPRISE.

And while we’re on such a sci-fi bent, here’s a story about Back to the Future II, in which hero Marty McFly travels forward in time to October 21, 2015 — that’s today! What did the filmmakers get right when they imagined how things might be now back in 1989?

Finally, a healthcare PSA because helpful Aquarius Moon. If you’re a woman, the American Cancer Society now thinks you should have mammograms less often.

But wait! Don’t forget to grab a few bookmarks! Or if you’d really like to be thoroughly informed, consider booking a personal consultation. Just think how much easier it could be for Paul Ryan to make his career decisions if he was aware of the cycles of timing in his horoscope. He’d be far less stressed, I’m sure…

Thank you for reading this forecast.

Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 4/6/2015: Leonardo DiCaprio’s Perfect Timing; Sneak Peek at the Week

Good Morning!

The Moon is still in Scorpio, seeking to be someone or something of depth and significance. We’re still processing the fallout from Saturday’s Full Moon/Eclipse, as well as Sunday’s challenge between the Aries Sun and Pluto. Monday may coincide with a sudden jolt or other disruption of the status quo as the Sun and rebel Uranus meet-up at 10:08AM ET, adding to other jolts noted over the weekend.  As noted on Saturday, this electric buzz suggests a higher potential for news from underground (including seismic activity), rebellions, breakthroughs in technology or the cosmos, nuclear news and other power plays.

Mercury gets the most action of all the planets this week, starting with an easy flow from expansive Jupiter, exact at 9:26AM ET. Got a big idea to broadcast? On Tuesday, Mercury is squared by persuasive, perspicacious Pluto at 8:05PM ET.  On Wednesday, Mercury meets up with brilliant technogeek Uranus at 8:20AM ET. Just after midnight on Friday, Mercury meets up with the Sun in inspiring, pioneering Aries. Something new on the horizon for sure…and if you have a planet or angle around 15 Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn, you may sell have something to sell.

All of this sounds like a great time for the good folks working at the Large Hadron Collider to get back up to speed — and beyond — after the LHC went offline for a two-year retooling. Those good folks aim to “break physics” (so they said last month), and here’s the latest on what they hope to discover after they’re running at full throttle in May. Startling communications suggested by planetary patterns may not be such a great time for the editors at Rolling Stone, who published a retraction of its controversial story about a campus rape at UVA after a report written by the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism pronounced the story an epic fail.

Also in the limelight this week: Jupiter. The planet of expansion turns direct on Wednesday. If you know what area of your horoscope is ruled by Jupiter, it may feel like you’ve been in a holding pattern in that area since Jupiter turned retrograde at the end of last year.  A horoscope with Jupiter ruling the second house of finances and self worth, for example, may have experienced a delay in anticipated revenues.  With Jupiter turning direct, forward motion is now a potential. If you have a planet or angle around 12 degrees of just about any sign — but especially Leo — you are more personally affected by this expansive shift.  If you don’t know what degree and sign your Jupiter is in, consider spending $18 for an Astro-Basics Report — scroll down on this link here for more details.

Moon voids this week — natural cosmic rest periods best suited for chilling or taking care of routine matters — are as follows: Tuesday 4:42PM ET until 1:08AM ET on Wednesday; Thursday 1:42PM ET until 8:47AM ET on Friday.

And now, one more bit of news. At the end of December 2013 I wrote about the intriguing synastry between Woodrow Wilson and Leonardo Di Caprio, who had announced his intention to star in a biopic about Wilson. That all made perfect sense, though there have been no further announcements about that biopic since September 2013. Presumably a script is still in development.

However, given that Leonardo Di Caprio’s Moon is 15 degrees of Libra — and thus affected by the emancipating/empowering potential of Uranus, Pluto and the last two lunar eclipses at 14-15 Aries-Libra, it was expected that he would be doing something prominent at this time. Ready for it?

From the front page of Sunday’s NYT real-estate section:

In what may be his highest-impact leading role yet, the actor Leonardo DiCaprio, the Oscar-nominated “Wolf of Wall Street,” is planning to heal an island…

Actually, he’s planning to build an eco-resort on said island, which is off the coast of Belize. In Mr. DiCaprio’s horoscope his harmony and partnership-seeking Libra Moon rules the 10th house of career/reputation. It is in his 1st house, a highly entrepreneurial position, and it is squared by ambitious Saturn at 18 degrees Cancer. Not surprised to read about a supercharged real estate reach now, given how Uranus and Pluto have been stimulating this Moon-Saturn square. Cancer is concerned with home and nurturing; Saturn is a structuring energy and it rules Mr. DiCaprio’s 4th house which also refers to home and nurturing. This challenging project is reflected in his horoscope as a two-year period (through 2017) of extraordinary effort with much at stake.

Transiting Neptune is also strong in Mr. DiCaprio’s horoscope. Right now it is exactly conjunct his Jupiter at 8 Pisces, and square his natal Neptune at 8 Sagittarius. Neptune- Jupiter transits suggest amplified idealism. They also suggest a strong caveat in legal matters, as the glasses one wears when signing them may be a tad too rose. Mr. DiCaprio will be experiencing this transit through 2016.

On the other hand, Mr. DiCaprio’s horoscope is tremendously resourceful, suggested by three planets in Scorpio in the 2nd house: Sun-Venus and Mars. Scorpio can be a master strategist, and Mars in Scorpio can be highly effective. We also see Pluto in the 1st House, in contact with the Ascendant and the Midheaven, suggesting a relentless drive for prominence and accomplishment. There’s more, but you get the idea.

Also of note: Mr. DiCaprio’s  horoscope has no planets in Earth Signs, suggesting a potential lack of practicality — but the ability to think big. Some people with no Earth Signs compensate by delving into earthly concerns, including agriculture, cooking, nutrition and the environment — the latter of which is certainly true for Mr. DiCaprio.

To find out why you are the way you are — and how you can use awareness of planetary cycles to live your life better, consider scheduling a personal astro-logical consultation. You may not believe in astrology, but rest assured that astrology believes in you.

Thank you for reading this forecast.
