"The reading was a partnership between the two of us; she did not simply recite planetary signs and meanings, but had a conversation with me, continually asking what I made of what she saw, and what I thought I could do to change the things I want to change.

When the names of other people in my life came up, she quickly looked up their charts on her computer and commented on their roles in my life -- painting a fuller picture of where I was, where I wanted to go, and how I could get there.

What was impressive was that Elisabeth took all the planets, people, and situations that made up my life and created a context for them all that was positive, hopeful, and exciting!

She has a lovely personality, a sharp wit, and a gift for astrological interpretation."

Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday 11/12/2014: Still More Power Plays

Mind the Cancer Moon void between 4:16AM ET and 1:44PM ET. That’s your excuse should you encounter any twists or flakes in your morning routine. Chill out and focus on routine tasks if you can; don’t turn a molehill of a crisis into a mountain.

Once the Moon enters Leo, a regal sense of play and a need to shine shifts the energy of the rest of the day.  If you’ve been thinking seriously about a relationship or business alliance, an advance forward may manifest, as we get closer to a meet-up between Venus (money, love, art, women) and Saturn (discipline, structure, business) at 8:02PM ET. Minutes later, at 8:29PM ET, warrior Mars clashes with rebel Uranus and adds a surprising upset or revelation to the night.

And now, the news.

The power plays and revelations suggested by action hero Mars engaging with the Uranus-Pluto square keep on coming. This just in from Beijing:  after months of secret negotiations, the U.S. and China have reached an agreement to actually get serious about reducing carbon emissions. Of course, Mars is also the warrior, and when supercharged by technogeek Uranus, it’s no surprise to see a front-page item about “smart” missiles that apparently can choose their targets without input from humans. A more positive application of this innovative potential that can be found in another front-page item, happening right now, is the Rosetta spacecraft’s effort to land on a comet — 37 million miles from Earth.

Other power plays and revelations include the Supreme Court’s decision, announced on Friday, to hear a case that could strip the word “Affordable” out of the Affordable Care Act — in 36 states. Is one of those states yours? Meanwhile, in the world of law enforcement, a practice known as “civil asset forfeiture” made headlines. What motivates some law enforcement officers to seize private property suspected of being used in a crime — even if the property owner hasn’t been convicted or even charged? The findings are disturbing.

Throw in yesterday’s alignment between Mercury and Neptune, and matters of faith and other intangibles pull focus. In Salt Lake City, the Mormon church finally admitted that its founder, Joseph Smith, had 40 wives, after 200 years of apparently insisting that he was monogamous. In Baltimore, the hierarchy of the Catholic Church is “struggling” to adapt to the changes brought about by the revolutionary Pope Francis.

Add today’s meet-up between Venus (women, money, art) and Saturn (structure, business, wet blanket) to the mix, and pop superstar Taylor Swift makes headlines over her hardnosed decision to pull her entire body of work off of the music streaming service Spotify, claiming that the royalties Spotify offers artists are too lean and mean.

Following up on yesterday’s item about Senator Ted Cruz’s Tweet comparing net neutrality to Obamacare, the Oatmeal has put together a whimsical rebuttal filled with helpful facts for those who aren’t sure what net neutrality actually is and what it means to you.

I’m still looking for a good projector and would love to trade the one sitting in your closet that you never use for astrology services. Drop me a line if we can make a win-win deal.

If you’re interested in booking a personal astro-logical consultation and want to take advantage of the Mercury retrograde incentive, please contact me today. Going once…going twice….

Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 11/26/2012: Mercury Turns Direct

…and a happy Monday to you, too! I hope you all enjoyed a blissed-out Thanksgiving and are now ready for a dynamic week.

Moon is in Taurus, happily concerning itself with material comfort and security. Not a bad placement for retailers hoping for a blockbuster Cyber Monday, especially with the optimistic Sagittarius Sun in a harmonious connection with Uranus, planet of innovation and technogeeks. What a buzz!! The caveat, however, is that Mercury (mind, communication, travel and gizmos) TURNS DIRECT at 5:48PM ET. Will the servers be able to handle the traffic? And even if they can, will they get your order right? You know the drill when Mercury changes direction: patience, focus and awareness while moving from Point A to Point B. And be prepared to review and revise plans that were launched during the past several weeks.

There’s another reason to be extra-focused in communications and paperwork over the next few days. Serious relationships, power plays and material ambition/security issues may be up for many, courtesy of an intense hook-up between Venus (social expression, women, money, beauty) and Saturn (ambition, control) in heavy Scorpio, exact at 8:19AM ET. Tuesday features a conjunction  between aggressive Mars and ruthless Pluto in super-enterprising Capricorn (exact at 3:14PM ET). Together, these two patterns suggests the potential for focused encounters that cut to the chase. What’s the bottom line? Illumination shows up on Wednesday, courtesy of a Gemini Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse, which we will talk more about later this week.

Void of course Moons are tricky this week, disrupting the straight-as-an-arrow intentions of Type A personalities. Moon goes void Monday at 7:57PM ET…and enters Gemini at 7:58PM ET on TUESDAY.  Moon goes void at 8:04PM ET on Wednesday…not to enter Cancer until 8:55AM ET on FRIDAY. Be prepared for unexpected twists and flakes…and remember that crises that crop up during voids are often much ado about nothing.

And now, the news — and there’s plenty to deliver. You may recall that on Thursday I anticipated that we’d see the consequences of a rose-colored fog and the potential for accidents in the headlines. How about “140 Car Pile-up in Texas Fog Kills 2; Injures Dozens”. With the Moon in Aries on Friday challenged by extremely combustible patterns among aggressive Mars, unpredictable Uranus and destructive Pluto, we saw “27 Injured in Lower Manhattan Office Fire”. That fire broke out in the wee hours of the morning, about the same time a Walmart shopper in Sacramento flipped out and threatened to stab people. And there was plenty of other aggressive Black Friday outbursts, as anticipated. Meanwhile, there was a fire at the State Department. Coincidence or conspiracy?

As for explosive outbursts in the rest of the world, we noted a surprise power grab in Egypt, a fire in a garment factory in Bangladesh killing at least 124 workers (anyone own any clothing made in Bangladesh?); and rebels & chaos in the Congo. There was a shooting on Friday in Gaza after the declared cease fire on Wednesday, but as it turns out, the cease fire remains in effect..so that’s good news.  Interesting to note in synch these combative warrior patterns are happening along with the passing of two men associated with testosterone: Larry Hagman (known for his portrayal of big, bad JR Ewing on “Dallas”) and Hector “Macho” Comacho, a boxer known for “living dangerously”.

You may be in the hot seat or called to action this week if you were born around the 30th of March, June, September or December…or if you have a planet or key point around 4 to 9 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.  And that can be a very GOOD thing!
