I have been sitting with the incredible experience of your gift and knowledge and letting it sift down into my understanding and psyche. It was a powerful time for me. I told a friend, "she is the real deal." I don't say that very often!

Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 1/23/2014: Love, Money & Fashion Statements

Moon is in people-pleasing Libra until 4:43PM ET —  void of course. But I told you this yesterday, so you’re prepared, right? Go with the flow; take care of what is routine. Chill. Meditate. Please do not make mountains out of molehills, which so often happens during voids. Chill!

Libra refers to partnerships, especially marriage, and Venus, which rules Libra, is currently retrograde — until January 31st — and this can put a stress on relationship. And even though yesterday was filled with jarring aspects, I was certainly jarred to read that The Captain and Tennille are filing for divorce after 39 years of marriage. Cue “Love Will Keep Us Together” now, please.

Of course I looked at their horoscopes, and both have transits involving the 10th house (public status) and the 3rd house (mindset). In the Captain’s case, it’s a Neptune thing: [he] “seemed blindsided by the break-up. ‘I don’t know why she filed. I gotta figure it out for myself first.'” That bewilderment he’s feeling? That is Neptune. In Tennille’s case, it’s a Saturn thing — which could be a reach for ambition or a need to cut losses….or just to cut. As the song goes, “Whatever.”

You may recall in an earlier post that Venus retrograde in Capricorn was likely to be reflected in stories of outrageous purchases for the sake of social status.  “We are broke, have an unconscionable amount in credit card debt already, and this Inaugural is killing us!!” wrote Maureen McDonnell, wife of the then-Governor of Virginia, to her still-husband. She really, really needed a dress to wear to a ball.  They have just been indicted — for accepting status-enhancing gifts — including a dress — from a businessman who allegedly expected certain favors in return.

Meanwhile, in the ongoing series of stories we can expect to see about wealth inequality (thank you Uranus square Pluto and Saturn in Scorpio), Oxfam released a report stating that 85 people on this planet have as much wealth as 3.5 billion of the poorest among us, which is  more than half the world’s population. This just as the elite of the world gather at Davos to discuss the state of the world economy. Actor Matt Damon was there — to alert the world to its impending water crisis. Thank you, Neptune in Pisces. And thank you, Matt Damon, for trying to do something good for humanity.

I think it’s time to have a look at what kind of pants the Norwegian curling team will be wearing at the Winter Olympics…

This light blue is brought to you by today’s Moon in Libra, as well as this soft rose. Neither of these colors will be worn by the Norwegian curling team at the Winter Olympics. Contact me if you’d like to schedule a personal astro-logical consultation.

 

Astro-logical Forecast For Tuesday 11/5/2013: Venus in Capricorn & Other Matters of Importance

Waking up with a buzz of righteousness that requires proactive expression, perhaps — with the Moon in opinionated Sagittarius, and it’s New Moon energy to boot. Have an innovative thought with your morning coffee, won’t you?

Be aware that the Moon goes void of course at 11:48AM ET — not to enter the next sign, Capricorn, until 4:44PM ET on Wednesday. That’s long time to feel like you’re herding cats, treading water or encountering delays and twists in your efforts to move forward in a straight line. Try to spend some time turning inward, especially since the Moon void begins on a potentially hypercritical and argumentative challenge from action-hero Mars in prissy Virgo. Unless you’re really up for a heated and righteous debate.

Last week was intensely supercharged; take advantage of this natural planetary rest period to let the dust settle. Not that the intensity has disappeared, mind you. On Wednesday AM  we’ll have the annual conjunction of the Sun (life force) with stern Saturn in penetrating Scorpio. That can be super-heavy — but it also offers us an opportunity to get real. Here’s how this hook-up was reflected in the headlines last year — sixth paragraph, please.

Meanwhile, Venus (referring to women, money, aesthetics and social expression), entered Capricorn this morning at 3:43AM ET, demanding decorum and a pedigree in these areas. Venus in Capricorn knows exactly how to use its connections to climb up a ladder (preferably corporate), and until March 5th, so could you.Why such a long stay in Capricorn? Because Venus will be turning retrograde in Capricorn on December 22nd, not to turn direct until January 31st. You can search the archives for thoughts on Venus retrograde — or wait for me to write a post about it as we get closer to December 22nd.

On the 14th and 15th, Venus will make contact with the Uranus-Pluto square (a.k.a. The Planetary Pattern Everyone Should Be Talking About, thus shaking things up in Venus-ruled arenas. At that time, you may find yourself mingling with all kinds of unconventional, yet credentialed types who instantly become your new best friend. These “sudden attractions” are typical under Venus-Uranus transits, when an open-minded, humanitarian, freedom-loving buzz permeates the air. Add Pluto’s intensity to the mix, and some of your social encounters may be quite cathartic.

Mind the void — remember — no impulse shopping sprees or signing of contracts. If you’re looking for ideas on what to do, here’s one possibility, especially with artistic expression so ripe for prominence in the cosmos over the next couple of days…enjoy!
