Astro-logical Forecast for Friday 4/29/2016 & the Weekend: Obsessively Yours with Venus, Mars & Mercury

TGIF!

The next two days are driven by the Moon in Aquarius, seeking friendship and a good humanitarian cause.  Lunar energy flows without interference until 11:29PM ET, when we’ll have a square between the Aquarius Moon and the Taurus Sun — a.k.a. the Third Quarter Moon. Whatever your agenda was at the New Moon seemingly eons ago, here’s a chance for another burst of effort.

Venus enters Taurus at 8:36PM ET, joining Mercury and the Sun in their quest for material comfort and security. Currently at 29 degrees of Aries, the planet of social expression, women, money and aesthetics is exiting feisty warrior Aries  accompanied by a plethora of fighting women in the headlines which I’ll get to in a few more paragraphs.

Consider a way to marry the old guard with the avant garde in your approach on Saturday, as the Moon makes easy connections to Saturn and Uranus at 8:46AM ET and 7:55PM ET respectively. Or you could apply seriously constructive energy to a project during the day on Saturday and hang with your favorite eccentrics at night. Note that around 10:56PM ET the Moon will go void on a charged square between the Aquarius Moon and Mercury — now retrograde in Taurus. These can be stubborn signs — something to consider if you’re wishing to negotiate an overnight deal to make a dream come true under the rose-colored glasses of  an easy flow between the Sun and Neptune at 8AM ET Sunday.

No harm, no foul during the overnight Moon void. Moon enters Pisces at 10:33AM ET, seeking an intangible escape. Looks like a lovely day for art, spiritual and healing pursuits — on the upside. A REtreat sounds divine, as we adjust to Mercury’s recent retrograde turn. Follow the lead of those who gathered at the White House last night for a final Seder hosted by President Obama.  What — a Seder at the White House — since when? Since a spontaneous Seder happened on the campaign trail in 2008. The story is charming, and this passage is so apt for the weekend’s planetary patterns:

Part of the Passover tradition includes an invocation to recline; rituals of rest and reflection are key to the celebration. “And so we paused from this historical campaign, we paused from how tired we were, paused from the ups and downs of traveling. We knew deep down that our lives were about to change – and the senator’s life would change the most – and this was a chance to reflect…”

No sleeping in on Monday — do note your dreams, as the Moon will meet up with Neptune at 6:23AM ET.

And now, the news.

Did I mention that Mercury turned retrograde on an obsessive quindecile to a retrograde Mars….AND Mercury has been conjunct the Fixed Star Capulus at 23-24 degrees of Taurus? Capulus, as some may receall from an earlier write-up on Donald Trump’s horoscope,  is associated with aggressive energy — usually masculine and sexual. Trump’s Midheaven (public status, career) is 24 Taurus. So is Hillary Clinton’s North Node — a focal point of growth potential in the horoscope. Hmmm. Take Mercury, Mars, Capulus and Venus at the end of Aries, and we might see headlines like “Are Some Women Headed for the Draft? Support for the Idea Grows in Congress”…or “NYT Boss Sued Over Ageist, Sexist…Policies”…on the same day the NYT runs with “Trump and Clinton Gear Up for a Race Defined by Gender”.  My personal favorite: “Royal Mail Threatens to Halt Deliveries to Home of Mail-Snatching Cat”, whose expression in the accompanying photo looks remarkably like Venus at the end of its rope in Aries.

Meanwhile….

The conventional astrological wisdom advises against rushing into or cementing partnerships when Mars is retrograde. That unity pledge between Ted Cruz and John Kasich, vowing to work together to stop Donald Trump lasted all of five seconds.  Mars retrograde also suggests that Ted Cruz and recently-declared running mate Carly Fiorina may be a match made in Hell. But don’t take it from me, take it from John Boehner, who called the would-be Presdent “Lucifer in the flesh.” The former Speaker may be inclined to act with more abandon than his diplomatic Libra Moon often dictates, now that rebel Uranus is adding the element of surprise and shock to his precision-crafted Mars in Virgo.  The internets went wild! How quickly we forget that NYT columnist David Brooks said as much back in January. Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the Satanic Temple was not amused.

Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 4/25/2016: Sneak Peak at the Week; Beyonce, Right on Schedule

Good Morning!

Note your dreams upon waking, as the boundary-pushing Moon in Sagittarius squares off with visionary Neptune at 7:27AM ET. This is the first of three contacts the Moon will make today to a loose T-square among Neptune, Jupiter and Saturn — the last two at 11:42AM ET and 3:47PM ET, respectively. The Jupiter-Saturn square — which will be exact for the third time on May 26th — suggests the last charge in a 20-year business cycle which began with the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in material security-seeking Taurus at the end of May 2000.

Let the record show that the chart for that Great Conjunction had an info-junkie Gemini Sun opposing power & resources Pluto, driven by a me-me-me Moon in pioneering Aries. Jupiter & Saturn were squared by technogeek Uranus, and it’s fascinating to see how that pie-in-the-sky pattern has been reflected in the explosion of tech-driven businesses that seemingly allow us to be so free and independent. We’re in the back half of the cycle until 2020, and the current square suggests the challenges created in the expansive first half of the cycle will pull focus. From the weekend’s headlines: “In An Age of Privilege, Not Everyone Is in the Same Boat”  and  “The Secret Shame of Middle-Class Americans” — truly a must-read. Neptune added to the mix suggests themes of spirits and other escapes; empathy and suffering — along with a dose of the surreal, as in “how can this be happening?”

That being said, there are no exact planetary patterns — other than to the Moon this week. This does not suggest that the week will be meh, as I’ve noticed in weeks with a similar lull before. In your own personal world, be aware that mental Mercury will turn retrograde on Thursday at 1:20PM ET. BACK UP YOUR COMPUTERS NOW.

Another shift this week is Venus, heading into Taurus on Friday at 8:36PM ET, just before the Third Quarter Moon. Venus in Taurus is a sensual placement, which may help you slow down and take time to smell the roses in May — so apt with so many planets retrograde.

Your Moon voids for the week: Tuesday 11:51AM ET until 7:54PM ET. I shudder to think of the potential twists and flakes that may lie in store for people trying to vote in tomorrow’s primaries, starting with Rhode Island, which is closing two-thirds of its polling places as a “cost-saving measure,” just as Arizona did in its primary fiasco. Let the righteous opinions of the Moon in Sag begin! That’s the only Moon void you’ll have to consider during business hours; the only other one is on Friday between 3:07AM and 4:47AM ET.

OMG…I just realized that yesterday marked the seventh anniversary of this forecast. Seven years — and no Pulitzer yet? I can’t even…

And now, the news.

Plenty to report in the aftermath of Friday’s emotionally intense Scorpio Moon, along with its surprisingly unconventional Venus conjunct Uranus attractions. You may recall Hillary Clinton’s Scorpio Sun (likely in her 12th House) was directly affected. Things the 12th House refers to include that which is behind the scenes, self-undoing, big giant institutions. Surprise, surprise — guess who thinks she might be a better president than the Republican challengers? None other than Charles Koch. Mrs. Clinton rejected the flirtatious endorsement via Twitter — but not for reasons some might prefer.  FYI, in the past, Mr. Koch has personally contributed to these political campaigns.

Another surprise in the NYT, in which former U.S. Senator Harris Wofford writes of his upcoming second marriage. He was with his wife for 48 years until she passed away in 1996. On April 30th, he will wed his partner of the past 15 years — a younger man he met on a beach at age 75.

Meanwhile, Beyonce surprised fans with the unexpected release of an album, “Lemonade,” right after the airing of her HBO special on Saturday. Not surprisingly, Beyonce is currently experiencing transiting Uranus opposing her natal Venus-Pluto conjunction in Libra. We’d expect an emancipated expression involving over-the-top emotion and partnership right about now. Isn’t astrology amazing?

What’s going on in your horoscope? I’d love to share insights with you in a personal consultation. Here’s the 411 — we will have an excellent discussion together.
