Astro-logical Forecast for Friday 2/3/2012: Information Overload?

Read yesterday’s forecast for thoughts on Neptune’s ingress into Pisces at 1:52PM ET today.

Moon continues in chatterbox Gemini all day, not to enter Cancer until 12:06AM on Saturday. If anyone is feeling just a wee bit superior (think of The Church Lady), we may hear about it around 10:24AM ET, when aggressive Mars in prissy Virgo challenges the Moon. In your own little world, count to ten before snapping someone’s head off and don’t take it personally or return the volley if it’s your head being snapped off by someone else. On the plus side, if you’re channeling this energy with the best intentions and consciousness, you can make an impassioned case for something, complete with facts to back it up.

Self-indulgence or over-indulgence may present temptations around 3:03PM ET, as Moon is challenged by Venus in all-encompassing Pisces. Resist the urge to splurge and you’ll thank yourself when that credit card statement comes due.

More on the rest of the weekend later. It’s 12:54AM ET on Friday…and I am officially fried.

Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday 6/21/2011: Summer Solstice

Did I forget to mention that Moon moved into Pisces yesterday at 4:45PM ET, after a void so brief that if you blinked, you missed it? Apparently. Moon in Pisces needs to work with intangibles; working with your intuition and going with the flow can be an effective strategy during such times.

It could feel downright soupy over the next two days, as nebulous Neptune, the sign that rules Pisces, makes strong aspects to energetic Mars and life-giving Sun (both exact tomorrow during a day-long void). Watery depths increase with the Sun’s ingress into Cancer at 1:17PM ET, marking the Summer Solstice — the longest day of the year. The first two days around a Solstice or Equinox are especially charged, as these degrees of the zodiac: Zero Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn mark the beginning of a new season. Collectively these degrees are known as the Aries Point, and whenever a planet in your horoscope falls on one of these points, you can be sure it will push for prominence in your life.

Restrictive Saturn in Libra, sign of fairness, balance, judges squares Mercury (mind, communication, travel) in Cancer (women, mom, emotional security) at 2:42PM ET.  An apt aspect for yesterday’s Supreme Court decision denying 1.5 million current and former Walmart employees (women) to sue their employer for sex discrimination resulting in inequitable pay and promotion? Saturn-Mercury aspects can be heavy, sometimes downright depressing. On the other hand, the serious focus can be constructive. In the case of the Walmart employees, the loss sustained by each averaged $1100, according to the New York Times. What if 1.5 million women filed a case in small claims court? Putting together a case in court isn’t brain surgery. They wouldn’t need a lawyer to file; they could name corporate officers all the way to the top of the company; and Walmart would have to pay their lawyers to respond to each case. That’s my magical thinking idee du jour, no doubt influenced by the strong influence of nebulous Neptune, leading to indulgent flights of fancy.

Get it off your desk today if you can, in preparation for tomorrow’s day-long void, which starts tonight at 10:51PM ET on a potentially indulgent square between Moon (feelings) and Venus (women, art, beauty, love).

Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday 6/7/2011: Congressman Anthony Weiner

Angelenos, you could probably get away with sleeping late today. A self-indulgent challenge to Moon from loving Venus is exact at 8:27AM PDT, at which time Moon goes void in royal Leo until 12:33PM PDT. If you encounter a twist to your morning routine, a crisis of “sound and fury, signifying nothing”; a general feeling of aimless wandering or other lack of focus, blame the void. Or blame yourself for not taking advantage of a natural break in the usual push forward. Voids are a good time to chill, brainstorm or just be present.

New Yorkers, you might enjoy an especially long lunch — how about a picnic in a park?

At 12:33PM PDT/3:33 EDT Moon moves into perfectionist Virgo, where it will spend the next two days trying to get the facts exactly correct and precise. A supportive, practical connection between Mercury (mind, travel, communication) and disciplined Saturn fights to keep us down-to-earth and focused. However, while the mind may strive to be focused, emotions may lean toward expansion and/or escape. Perhaps you can plan logistics for your August vacation (Mercury will be retrograde then).

Meanwhile, a slow news day yesterday, as Congressman Anthony Weiner held a press conference to announce that yes, he did send allegedly lewd pix of himself to a number of women who are not his wife. Weiner, born Sep 4, 1964 in Brooklyn (birth time unknown) is an allegedly discriminating Virgo with Moon in Leo, suggesting an enormous…need to be loved and adored. This need is either running wild in the horoscope, or augmented by an expansive connection to Jupiter in sensual Taurus. But if the Moon isn’t connected to that expansive, sometimes expensive Jupiter, a sexy hook-up between loving Venus and rarin’ to go Mars definitely is.Add to the Virgo Sun a magnetic connection with ruthless Pluto and a brilliant aspect between rebel Uranus and techno-geek Mercury and you’ve got a guy with a lot of pizzazz. You’ve also got a guy who isn’t afraid to take risks, and in fact, arguably needs to do so.

What’s going on in Weiner’s chart now? Nebulous Neptune (unreal) is exactly on Weiner’s Saturn (real), suggesting “depression, losing focus and a sense of being wronged,” according to master astrologer Noel Tyl. Ahhhh…so that’s why Weiner initially stated that his Twitter account had been hacked, eh? Neptune dissolves whatever it touches. If it’s in touch with Saturn, which represents structure, authority, reality and ambition, reality can feel a bit like quicksand. And this aspect will be prominent in Weiner’s life well into 2012. Also of note w/in the past two weeks: rebel Uranus making contact with Venus (women, social expression), suggesting more than a bit of disruptive excitement in those areas. And of course, Uranus refers to technology, including Twitter. Coincidence or conspiracy?
