"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 Tuesday 8/27/2013: Wondrous Strange; Mars in Leo

More of the same from yesterday: Moon in practical, sensual Taurus, either reinforcing our efforts to build material security or stubbornly maintaining the status quo. Mental Mercury (mindset, communication) starts the day off well-supported by disciplined Saturn — well, that’s good for fleshing out an idea and other serious communications. Expressing the sensual side of that Taurus Moon is given quite an edge by a potentially over-the-top connection between a delightfully considerate Venus and expansive Jupiter, also in a security-conscious sign. It’s a great day to be on an expense account; otherwise, keep an eye on your wallet and your appetite, lest ye overindulge. The Venus-Jupiter challenge is exact at 5:53PM ET. An overindulgence in rationalizations in favor of efforts to maintain homeland security is another potential.

At the end of the day — 10:05PM ET — aggressive Mars leaves watery Cancer and blusters its way into Leo, sign of drama queens and other royally entitled persons. On the plus side, we can expect less passive-aggression in acts of assertion. With Mars in Leo, there is the suggested need for actions to be accompanied with a regal flourish, often bold and playful. On the downside, there is that royally entitled thing, and more than one astrologer has noted that people born with Mars in Leo have an amazing ability to get away with murder. They assume they will receive special treatment and are definitely the ones to hang out with if you’re looking for complimentary upgrades.

Meanwhile, we continue to process the fallout from yesterday’s visionary and/or surreal Neptune-Sun opposition, combined with the freedom-seeking and unconventional expression of rebel Uranus opposing Venus.  Neptune keywords include: music, toxins, film, photography, oceans, oil, spirit, redemption, suffering, empathy, glamor. Related headlines include the disturbing confirmation of chemical weapons killing many in Syria (as if there wasn’t enough misery in the world) and a much more uplifting story of redemption involving a former bank robber who served his time and is about to begin a prestigious clerkship with an equally prestigious judge. Within this article is a link to a fascinating exchange between the reformed bank robber and the judge who sentenced him to several years’ in prison.

Pulling out all the razzle-dazzling stops of Neptunian showbiz, Julian Assange released a “surreal” campaign video supporting his run for public office in his native Australia. You did not know he was running for office? Of course he is, as reflected by current Saturn transits in his horoscope, seeking an ambitious and authoritative expression. If you were having a major Saturn transit, you might be acting on a few ambitions, too. And speaking of surreal, Miley Cyrus’s showstopping performance on the weekend’s VMA show is most definitely not suggested by a Saturn transit. She’ll get that later this year.  Chalk this one up to an innate need for unconventional social expression (Venus conjunct rebel Uranus and glamorous Neptune in her horoscope), triggered by transiting Mars (action!). Plus Ms. Cyrus is a gamboling Sagittarius with her Sun conjunct an equally gamboling and rowdy Sagittarius Ascendant. We’d expect to see some frankly in-your-face personal projections…including the gawd-awfully garish outfit worn at said Awards.

Moon goes void for ten minutes at 6:58PM ET; then it moves into information junkie Gemini, giving us more to talk about tomorrow…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 8/26/2013: Realizing the Dream

A day of inspired vision, celebrating and/or demanding the expression of unconventional and liberating social/financial/artistic mores. Also known as more of the same from yesterday. The Moon is still in steady, material comfort and security-seeking Taurus, where it has been since Sunday at 9:13AM ET. Without going into all the details of the supportive aspects to mental Mercury and Venus (money, art, social expression, women), today and tomorrow are most excellent days to do just about anything. And the rest of the week isn’t bad, either. Move forward on your efforts to build and maintain your empire.

Major aspects exact today include rebel Uranus opposing Venus at 1:56PM ET (unconventional social expression demanding freedom) and dreamy Neptune in soulful Pisces opposing the practical, perfection-seeking Virgo Sun at 9:43PM ET. These are perfect aspects to help you celebrate Women’s Equality Day, noted here with style and flair by NYT columnist Gail Collins. Other dreams worth celebrating include yesterday’s  50th Anniversary of the March on Washington, which helped bring about critical voting and civil rights legislation in the mid-60s, during the Uranus-Pluto conjunction. It is no coincidence that now, during the Uranus-Pluto square, these issues of civil rights and participation in the legislative process would be back in the headlines.

Not all dreams are worth celebrating, but made the news nonetheless. “Ignoring Qualms, Some Republicans Nurture Dreams of Impeaching Obama” read one in the Times. Maureen Dowd has more on this story. Meanwhile, a woman with a status quo-disrupting and arguably more noble cause is also in the news: Muriel Siebert, “a determined trailblazer for women on Wall Street” passed away over the weekend. Isn’t it fascinating that this news would hit the wires on an highly-charged aspect among Venus (women, money), rebel Uranus and ruthless, power-wielding Pluto?

In Siebert’s obit, she is noted for her “brash attitude” and once explained her strategy for dealing with obstacles as: “I put my head down and charge.” Wanna take a guess as to what we’ll find when we look at her birthday, September 12, 1932 in Cleveland, OH? (Use a noon chart; no time of birth is available). Start with Sun in Virgo, Moon in humanitarian Aquarius, needing to be socially significant. Add a ruthless, charging conjunction between aggressive Mars and ruthless Pluto in Cancer (finance) in a tough-as-nails opposition to patriarchal Saturn…all of which is squared by rebel Uranus! Frost with a visionary hook-up among mental Mercury, expansive Jupiter and rose-colored Neptune — thinking big and ahead of her time.

And while we’re celebrating Women’s Equality Day (which also happens to be Geraldine Ferraro’s birthday), on a Venus-Uranus opposition and on a day with Neptune (ruler of intangibles and illusions, including photography) so prominent, how cool is it to see this article about women photographers in the Middle East post on the NYT homepage moments ago?

Moon voids for the week: a ten minute void on Tuesday no one will notice; Thursday from 12:44AM ET to 7:33AM on FRIDAY — that’s a long one; plan accordingly.
