Astro-logical Forecast for Monday & Tuesday 6/29-30/2015: July Fireworks After Busting-Out June

Alllll righty then!

A lot of news to digest today, the start of a holiday week. Today’s Moon is in Sagittarius, potentially lifting spirits and encouraging the expansion of horizons everywhere. Sagittarius is a fire sign, adding to the spark already suggested by Uranus (in Aries) and Venus-Jupiter (in Leo). Plus the Moon is waxing to its fullness on Wednesday, so emotions are likely running high and righteously so. We can expect boundaries to be pushed in opinions, as well as a mood that’s up for a gambol or a gamble until the Moon enters earthy Capricorn on Wednesday at 5:11AM ET. We can also expect a bit of bewilderment or need for an escape as the Moon is challenged by nebulous Neptune at 5:12PM ET.

Meanwhile, get it off your desk today or by 2:18PM ET on Tuesday, which is when the Moon goes void for 15 hours. That is the only void (natural rest period) of note, for those of you who are not on vacation. Friday is a holiday in the U.S., and many have already left the building.

Actually, tomorrow morning features one of those rare patterns often associated with luck and timing: a grand trine. Picture an equilateral triangle involving these three planets: Uranus in Aries, Venus-Jupiter in Leo and Moon in Sagittarius. If you have a planet around 20 degrees of those signs, you are more affected than most.

Other than this Wednesday’s Full Moon, notable planetary patterns include Wednesday morning’s meet-up between Venus and Jupiter, which was discussed last week. Nebulous Neptune is also active, as it makes an easy alignment to the Sun on Wednesday afternoon. This inspired connection can enhance the innovative and expansive ideas I expect to see as the week progresses, as mental Mercury makes easy alignments with Uranus and Jupiter on Thursday and Friday, followed by an idealistic connection with Venus on Saturday.

As we roll into the weekend, I expect power plays, resources and news from the underground to pull focus, as “resistance is futile” Pluto opposes the homeland and security-oriented Cancer Sun. That’s the day Greece reopens its banks. More on Greece in a minute.

This concludes the sneak peek for the week, to be followed by more weeks of dynamic action in the cosmos as we move through July. Stay tuned to this forecast for updates.

And now, the news.

“Boundaries pushed in opinions” and “bewilderment” describe my thoughts as the Supreme Court issues its rulings today. One 5-4 opinion held that a controversial drug (Neptune) used in executions (Saturn now back in Scorpio) was A-OK, despite its horrific malfunction in botched executions last year. When I got to the last paragraph of this article describing a proposed alternative, I nearly spit my coffee all over my keyboard. I wonder if you’ll do the same.

In another 5-4 decision, the Court tossed out the EPA’s recent efforts to limit the amount of pollution generated by coal-fired power plants. Why? Follow the money. But while I may be bewildered by this ruling, consider that over at the Washington Times, this is very good news indeed. Right now, it’s the lead story, replacing an earlier top headline about how the Brady Center — a non-profit advocate for gun control — has been ordered to  pay the legal fees of an ammunition dealer who sells his stock online. The dealer’s name? Lucky Gunner. Seriously.

In other “limitless” rulings, the Supreme Court also ruled that independent panels may draw election district lines, and that states may not require prospective voters to provide proof of citizenship on voter applications, as Arizona and Kansas wished to do. So “limitless” seems to be the theme for the day.

Meanwhile, Greece. I’ve been writing about its horoscope since 2011, which is when disruptive Uranus and corruption-routing Pluto began hammering a number of planets: Venus, Moon, Pluto…and recently Mercury, Saturn (ouch) and the Ascendant. It’s the hits to the 13 Cancer Ascendant that are coinciding with the most dramatic shifts. The final hit of Uranus coincided with the stunning election of Alexis Tsipras, he of the “anti-austerity party”.  The last two hits of Pluto will happen on August 30th and October 20th — should be significant action around then. Pluto transiting the Ascendant usually reflect a transformation of perspective in one’s identity that can be empowering. What is no longer working is purged so that a new form can thrive. A phoenix rising from the ashes is a good Pluto metaphor. Ditching the Euro for the drachma? It would be no surprise at all.

Pride and joy is one potential of the exuberant meet-up between Venus and Jupiter in Leo, as noted last week and in the rainbow-colored photos beaming all over social media. Wretched excess is another, especially in matters of fire, fun, sugar and drama. Will we see a significant story on diabetes, I wonder?

Meanwhile, on Saturday, during a moody bastard Moon in Scorpio, over 400 people attending a music party in Taiwan were hospitalized when they were burned by an explosion of colored fireworks powder; one woman has died. Equally wretched were the comments of the Usual Suspects outraged by Friday’s ruling legalizing same-sex marriage — too many to list here.

If I were writing this during a moody bastard Scorpio Moon, I might say something catty about Bristol Palin’s latest wretched excess. Ms. Palin, who is best known for being a single mom who scored an awesome gig as a highly-paid ambassador for abstinence, announced that she is pregnant again — weeks after breaking off yet another engagement. But rather than be catty, I’m linking  a thoughtful piece from Salon, while noting that over the next several years Ms. Palin could well become the mature spokesperson envisioned therein. Even without an exact birth time we can see that hits from Uranus and Pluto will afford her the opportunity for liberation and empowerment, after a likely period of austerity. Kinda like Greece.

Since I’ve been writing this forecast, I swear six ambulances and fire trucks have passed by my building, with sirens at full blast. Seven…make it eight…oh, and choppers, too. And now police yelling “get down on the ground!” as mothers push strollers on the sidewalk. Just another day in New York. It occurs to me now that both Saturn (control) and Pluto (power) are running wild in the cosmos, today. Add those to the rising fiery emotions and the bewilderment of Moon challenged by Neptune…be prudent in your otherwise exultant state today.

Aren’t you dying to know what all this planetary activity suggests in your horoscope? Here’s the 411 on personal consultations. I guarantee you will find our discussion meaningful and enlightening.

Thank you for reading this forecast. Here’s the “busting-out June” reference, if you’re not up to speed on your Rodgers & Hammerstein repertoire.

 

 

 

Astro-logical Forecast for Friday 6/26/2015 & the Weekend: Scorpio Moons & Other Depths

TGIF!

Moon is void in Libra until  1:57PM ET. A slow start or twist to your morning, perhaps? If you slept late and missed your usual train, chances are that the snafu will prove to be of no consequence. Moon voids are notorious for coinciding with multiple challenges in your efforts to move forward in a straight line. Chill and debate the pros and cons of Thursday’s SCOTUS decision upholding federal tax credits (a.k.a. subsidies) for eligible citizens in ALL states, not just the ones whose state governments enthusiastically established their own health insurance exchanges (and also accepted federal funding to expand Medicaid).

What’s next? Legalizing same-sex marriage throughout the United States? Well, the Moon is in Libra…and on Monday we’ll have an easy connection between Venus (social expression, love) and playing field-leveling Uranus…I am hopeful…

Intense emotions and other power and control needs emerge when the Moon plunges into Scorpio after 2PM on Friday. There it will brood until Sunday at 11:21PM ET, with no Moon void to interfere with your summer shopping and yard sale binging all through the weekend. The binge may come courtesy of next week’s luxury-loving Venus-Jupiter hook-up in Leo, discussed yesterday.

Otherwise, hang out with some strong, silent types and contemplate what heights you may reach by exploring the depths. The easy connection between Venus and Uranus at 2:26AM ET on Monday serves as your tourist visa. Start with the Sunday NYT magazine — it’s their mental health issue and it includes more than one article about sex and happiness, including this confessional penned by Elizabeth Gilbert. OK, so I said a Scorpio Moon could brood, didn’t I?

Sunday evening around 9:50PM ET may feel especially heavy as the Moon meets up with taskmaster Saturn and then goes void for an hour and a half (chill time!). It then rockets into Sagittarius, where it will gamble and gambol on Monday and Tuesday. No sleeping in — you’ll miss out on the high-flying fun.

Thank you for reading this forecast.

 

 

Astro-logical Forecast for Monday-Thursday 8/18-21/2014: Sneak Peek at the Week

Good afternoon!

A busy buzz kicked in last night (Sunday) at 6:41PM ET, with the Moon’s ingress into information junkie Gemini. It will stay in gear until 10:54PM ET Tuesday and then go void-of-course until 4:45AM ET Wednesday. Make your calls and pitches, the more creatively self-expressive and inspired, the better. You’ll be supported by a dramatic, playful and generous (upside) hook-up between loving Venus and expansive Jupiter in regal Leo, exact this morning at 1:21AM ET. The downside? A potentially unsavory display of royal edicts and tantrums of entitlement. If you’re seeing the latter in your personal world, chances are that little drama king or queen is not getting the love it sorely needs, especially if the affected planet of said king or queen is also in Leo. You might be one of them if you have a planet or point around 7 degrees of Leo (and perhaps Scorpio, Taurus and Aquarius).

Another pattern exact today is a face-off between mental Mercury, operating at maximum efficiency in detail-oriented Virgo, and empathetic, inspiring Neptune, also well-placed in compassionate Pisces. Visionary communication perhaps involving work (Virgo) is suggested — that is the plus side. On the down side, perhaps a bit of confusion around 11:42PM ET tonight, when the face-off will be exact.

Add this pattern to the aforementioned drama potential of Venus (social expression, arts) and Jupiter (over-the-top), and it is interesting to see that the Metropolitan Opera (Leo) and its unions (Virgo) have reached a tentative deal after an all-night bargaining session.  I also find it interesting that an over-the-top dramatic campaign for a charity (Neptune) was all over the news this weekend. Have you heard about the Ice Bucket Challenge? Watch Lady Gaga, a master at dramatic self-expression, take a one for the team. Coincidence or conspiracy?

On Wednesday, when the Moon enters Cancer at 4:45AM ET, the focus shifts to emotional security: family, home/homeland and nurturing. Patterns on Wednesday are relatively light, save for an easy alignment between mental Mercury and potent Pluto that is exact on Thursday at 3:15PM ET. This connection facilitates investigative reporting and deep, potentially healing communication, and we are likely to see plenty in the headlines that day, as the Moon makes its weekly contact with the disruptive Uranus-Pluto square.

The only Moon void of note in the Americas — i.e., one that could disrupt your efforts to move forward in a straight line during business hours this week — is on Thursday at 3:34PM ET, when the Moon drifts off into Cancer on an easy but disciplined connection to sober Saturn. Go with the flow of whatever twists that may arise and stick to routine. Moon won’t get into gear until Friday at 4:49PM ET; how lucky for you if you’re taking Friday off.

And now, some other news reflecting planetary patterns.

In the category of the wretched excess suggested by Venus conjunct Jupiter in Leo, it was reported yesterday that the young unarmed man who was killed by a police officer in Ferguson after apparently being stopped for jaywalking was shot six times. Here’s John Oliver with his righteous take on the situation. In other news, did you know that in medical astrology, Venus refers to the kidneys? How interesting to see a front-page article about brokers who will connect those who need a kidney transplant with potential donors…for a hefty (Jupiter) price.

I’m taking a few days off. Will be back on Friday. Have a most excellent week, and thank you for reading this forecast.

Your donations never fail to make my day, with much gratitude to you for  your appreciation. Gratitude also to those of you who share this forecast with friends. Here’s the 411 on personal consultations. Have a wonderful day!
