Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday 2/4/2014: It’s Elementary…

Another day of proactive drive, courtesy of the Moon in RAMbunctious Aries. There’s an easy balance this morning, which flows unimpeded until 6:14PM ET, when the me-me-me Aries Moon may clash with the relationship-oriented Mars in Libra. Let the conflict fizzle out with a sigh, as the Moon will be void-of-course from then until 4:46AM ET.  Remember that crises that crop up during voids are likely to be much ado about nothing. Chill!

A couple of patterns dominating this week: first, a dreamy/delusional flirtation between nebulous Neptune and Mercury in Pisces may result in fuzzy thinking and communication. Hard to tell what’s real and what’s not. What does your gut tell you?

Second, a carry over from last week: status-conscious Venus in Capricorn, just getting up to speed as it now moves forward, is close enough to ruthless Pluto to feel things oh-so-deeply — and sometimes just over the top. So, no…you’re not crazy. It’s a little weird out there…and intense. So how about a cosmic joke:

Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson were going camping. They pitched their tent under the stars and went to sleep. Sometime in the middle of the night Holmes woke Watson up and said: ‘Watson, look up at the stars, and tell me what you see.’

Watson replied: ‘I see millions and millions of stars.’

Holmes said: ‘And what do you deduce from that?’

Watson replied: ‘Well, if there are millions of stars, and if even a few of those have planets, it’s quite likely there are some planets like earth out there. And if there are a few planets like earth out there, there might also be life.’

And Holmes said: ‘Watson, you idiot, it means that somebody stole our tent.’

Get it off your desk before the Moon void begins at 6:14PM ET…did you BACK UP YOUR COMPUTERS YET?

Now for a limited time: the Cardinal Grand Cross Special. Find out how this important planetary pattern will impact your horoscope in 2014. If you were born around the 2nd of April, July, October and January, you are likely to find this mini-consultation especially helpful. Ditto if you have a planet or an angle around 9 – 14 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra & Capricorn.

Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 1/17/2013: Gut Instincts

An over-the-top or otherwise self-indulgent power play or catharsis may grace the headlines this morning, courtesy of the feisty Aries Moon clashing with ruthless Pluto (power) and Venus (indulgence) in Capricorn (the Established Order). Otherwise, I can’t find much to complain about. This is a great day for practical, no-nonsense communication and structuring artistic/creative projects. The me-me-me Aries Moon can learn to play nice for the good of the team, courtesy of a cooperative connection from Mars in humanitarian Aquarius. Make the most of the proactive thrust of the next couple of days.

Meanwhile in the news, it’s guns, guns, guns —  everywhere you look in the US papers — with President Obama vowing to “put everything I’ve got into gun control”. A noble cause, Mr. President — go for it — but gosh I hope you save some of your mojo for a few other pressing issues we need to address in these wild and crazy planetary times, y’know?

As anticipated, yesterday’s ruthless Venus-Pluto hook-up was reflected in some down and dirty moves, including this especially down and dirty one pulled by the NRA. And just who IS the NRA, anyway? Not George H.W. Bush, whose letter of resignation made headlines some years ago. Leave it to Mother Jones to dig up the dirt in an exclusive published yesterday.

Speaking of down and dirty, here’s a piece on an effective treatment for intestinal infections some may find shocking. But didn’t I tell you yesterday we’d see a shock or two to accompany the ruthlessness of the Venus-Pluto conjunction?*** And you gotta admit, this treatment is so Capricorn — earthy and proactive — with a hint of Saturn in Scorpio (decay, regeneration).  Which is a perfect opportunity to mention the exciting world of probiotics, simply as a public service. Worth exploring if you’re having issues with digestion, as so many people are. Here’s Dr. Mark Hyman to tell you all about it. You can read his article while waiting for Lance Armstrong to spill his guts on Oprah tonight….

***After this forecast was sent out via email, a story crossed the wires about the first death row inmate to be executed in the U.S. this year. Robert Gleason, Jr. was electrocuted — about half an hour after the Venus-Pluto and Uranus-Moon conjunctions on Monday evening — at 9:08PM ET in Jarratt, VA. Ruthless and shocking, indeed.

Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday 1/16/2013: A Day of Dynamic Action

Moon goes void at 4:32AM ET, not to enter the next sign Aries, until 11:07AMET. What twist, flake or other unexpected detour will spice up your usual morning routine? Go with the flow and don’t stress out….even if you overslept and are late for a meeting. It is not the big crisis you think it is. Seriously!

After the void, the day really gets into gear. That’s the time to initiate the contacts required to get your New Moon agenda off the ground. Aries energy is pioneering, impulsive and often in a hurry. Aries people fall down stairs because it’s faster than walking, but who cares so long as they get there first? Just be advised that Aries is not known for its patience or its emotional maturity, especially on a day with an exact hook-up between Venus (social expression) and ruthless Pluto. Add a rebellious hook-up between the feisty Aries Moon and rebel Uranus to the mix, and you’re looking at the potential for shocks, upsets, revelations and/or guttersniping. Remember this, especially around 8:30PM ET, lest ye go off like a rocket. Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water. And don’t use a sledgehammer when a flyswatter will suffice.

Other than those caveats, today and tonight could be a lot of fun on the social front. If the opportunity presents itself, why not mingle?

Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday 1/15/2013: A Day of Uncompromising Vision

Another day driven by dreams, intuition and vision — what forms will they take? Moon is in soulful Pisces, pushed along by a supportive connection from disciplined Saturn, thus offering structure for said forms. How excellent for your New Moon agenda/to-do list.  Mars — which refers to the energy for taking action — is running wild in Aquarius, aiding and abetting all rebels with a cause. Mars also refers to firearms — watch the headlines. We’ll likely see some bold moves that may border on the downright aggressive, especially with the tension building between Venus (money, women, social expression, arts) and ruthless Pluto (transformation, power).

Neptune — which refers to vision, sacrifice, healing, spirits of all kinds, drugs, illusion and delusion — is running wild in Pisces, the sign it rules. Neptune also refers to redemption. Sounds like the perfect planetary patterns for Lance Armstrong to finally ‘fess up about his doping use…and apparently he is not going down alone, according to reports about an interview taped with Oprah yesterday (Monday).

In your own personal world, keep moving forward and curb any impulse to react to provocation with a witchy-bitchy attitude, lest it come back to haunt you. Sure, others around you may be a bit snippy, but they are not aware of planetary patterns. Put your special knowledge to good use.

Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 1/14/2013: Sneak Peek at the Week

After last week’s frustrating (for many) clash between aggressive Mars and Saturn, a.k.a. your friendly neighborhood brick wall, it’s a pleasure to report a week of planetary patterns that are much lighter in comparison. We’ve got practical New Moon energy to launch new projects. We have only one lengthy void-of-course Moon to throw a twist into our efforts to move forward in a straight line. That’s on Wednesday between 4:32AM and 11:07AM ET — barely an issue during business hours in the US.  Welcome to the first week of 2013 that actually feels like a New Year!

Wednesday is when we’ll experience the most potentially challenging pattern of the week: an intense hook-up between Venus (money, women, social expression, aesthetics) and ruthless, transformational Pluto. On the plus side, you may have an especially juicy intimate encounter, notable for its emotional depth and empowerment. On the down side, you may experience “emotional overkill” in a sudden, disruptive confrontation that is way more destructive than necessary. That potential is especially high around 8:30PM ET  Wednesday, but we may feel the tension building over the next few days.

Today (Monday) the Moon is in soulful Pisces, augmented by a dreamy connection to nebulous Neptune (exact at 8:20AM). How wonderful for artists, healers and other types who are fueled by inspiration. As the day progresses, optimism rises, courtesy of a buoyant challenge to Moon from Jupiter, softened by a cooperative connection from loving Venus…and that carries us into the evening.

And now, a few headlines from last week that perfectly reflected the status quo-disrupting square between Venus and rebel Uranus. First, from my Facebook feed: a fashion designer in China has a most unconventional model for her line of hipster women’s clothing — her 72-year-old grandfather. Second, a clip of transgender Matrix director Lana (nee Larry) Wachowski talking about her childhood at awards gala. While both of these stories were posted last fall, the fact that they showed up on my Facebook feed within minutes of my writing about the prominence  of this particular Venus-Uranus square in early Capricorn is no coincidence.

Meanwhile, in the fashion (Venus) section of the New York Times,  there was an article about a new generation seeking a radical “upending of gender roles beyond the binary of male/female“. A link to a clip of the utterly charming and thoughtful Stephen Ira talking about his transformation (he was born Kathlyn Bening Beatty) reflects the suggestion of prominence in unconventional social expression (with a pedigree!) we would see with Venus-Uranus square. As the first-born child of Warren Beatty and Annette Bening, a birth time was announced in the papers, so we have a horoscope to study, and it takes about five seconds to spot the astro-logical suggestions that gender identity concerns could be an issue in this horoscope. First, Sun (ego identity) in the 12th house conjunct unconventional Uranus and nebulous Neptune. Second, an unaspected Saturn in the 1st house (personal projection/identity) ruling the 1st house suggests father/control issues running wild. Third, rebel Uranus in hard aspect to the lunar node suggests that the influence of the feminine/maternal might interfere with statements of identity (!!). The Moon is in Aquarius, in the 1st house, ruling the 7th and 6th, suggesting a need to be unique, socially significant and entrepreneurial, especially in areas related to the body, the body politic and the public.  Themes of public empowerment and transformation are suggested, courtesy of Pluto in the 10th, also running wild. There is a strong need for prominent communication and opinionation suggested by energetic Mars and mental Mercury together in “tell-the-world” Sagittarius, so the world will no doubt be hearing more from this brilliant, empowered humanitarian.

Last but not least, who watched the Golden Globes or any of the many football matches on Sunday? Did you notice any surprises or upsets? The Moon was void-of-course all day in unconventional, humanitarian Aquarius, so we could expect underdogs to be favored and actions not going quite as expected. A surprise win certainly happened for the Atlanta Falcons…and there was some other match that went into overtime and ended with a twist — I don’t remember which teams were involved. Ben Affleck was a surprise win for Best Director and “Argo” was a shock for Best Picture, though arguably not undeservedly.  And then there was Jodie Foster’s surprising acceptance speech, apparently addressing a topic we’d expect to hear about under the influence of the Venus-Uranus square…
