Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 4/17/2014: Moon Void; Supercharged Planets; Ending on a High Note

Chill, chill, chill. The depth-seeking Scorpio Moon is void of course as of 3:09AM ET, suggesting twists and delays in your efforts to move forward in a straight line. The flake factor is high, as wandering lunar energy can feel like herding lots of unruly cats. Go with the flow — take care of routine tasks — don’t make a mountain out of a molehill – avoid impulse purchases. The latter is especially relevant because the key planetary aspect today is pleasure-loving Venus in harmony with expansive Jupiter at 9:19PM ET. Sweet — but potentially expensive and indulgent.

After 5:44pm ET, Moon enters high-flying Sagittarius, ready for a gambol or a gamble. Buy some lottery tickets, why don’t you, especially if you have a planet or angle around 13 degrees of just about any sign. No, that is not a guarantee that you will win big…but ya never know. Find a pleasant diversion this evening — preferably one that broadens your mind.

And now, the news.

Venus can be ultra-compassionate and forgiving in soulful Pisces, sign of salvation. Jupiter can be quite bountiful in nurturing Cancer. Together,  they offer the potential for extreme good fortune.  Like this 20-something Iranian man who was about to be executed for a murder he committed in his teens…until the mother of the boy he killed approached him, slapped him in the face…and forgave him. Which set him free. Wait ’til you see what his mother did…

In other news, illumination on one of the themes suggested by the New Moon on March 30th; i.e., resources: who’s got ’em; who doesn’t. According to a Serious Academic Study just released , the United States is not a democracy. It is an oligarchy, not that anyone who’s been paying attention needs the serious academic folks at Princeton and Northwestern to tell them this. But now it is official…with footnotes and everything….so maybe the folks who have not been paying attention will finally get around to doing so. Mid-term elections are in November, and planetary patterns with respect to the United States strongly suggest we are at a turning point. Which way will we go?

Meanwhile, Jimmy Carter knows something about turning points, as he and nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners wrote in a letter to President Obama, a fellow Laureate:

“You stand on the brink of making a choice that will define your legacy on one of the greatest challenges humanity has ever faced — climate change”

The “choice” is whether to greenlight the Keystone Pipeline, which Carter and the other Laureates oppose. Turning point!

Jimmy Carter has been getting a lot of press these days — so much that you might conclude his horoscope was being supercharged by the never-ending Uranus-Pluto square…and in fact, it is. Carter has his natal Pluto –referring to power and perspective at 13 degrees of Cancer. It will be directly impacted by next week’s exact Cardinal Grand Cross, which adds Jupiter and Mars to the Uranus-Pluto dynamic.

The horoscope of South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu is also being supercharged: his Sun is at 13 Libra. He’s calling for a boycott and divestment campaign against fossil fuel companies, as 100 Harvard professors are petitioning for their university to divest itself of its stake in the gas, oil and coal industries…just in time for this sobering op-ed noting the fourth anniversary of the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig. You do remember that, don’t you?

Can you tell I’m writing this forecast on a heavy hook-up between the Moon and stern Saturn in Scorpio? I promise the day will feel much lighter as the day progresses — and definitely once the Moon enters Sagittarius later this evening…enjoy.  And if you want to know how your horoscope will be affected by next week’s Cardinal Grand Cross a.k.a. the Cardinal Grand Square, I’m offering a special mini-consultation through the end of April — check it out.

 

Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday 4/16/2014: Accentuate the Positive

This full day of Moon in emotionally intense Scorpio starts off with a feisty and potentially confrontational challenge between mental Mercury and action hero Mars. Watch for outbursts if you’re getting up around 7:15AM ET. Like the crazy cold weather much of the United States is having today, this too shall pass. A couple of hours later, emotional needs for depth and substance are supported and expanded by harmonious connections from loving Venus and jolly Jupiter. By lunchtime you may be feeling quite regenerated.

Get it off your desk today, as the Scorpio Moon will be void of course as of 3:09AM ET on Thursday….not to enter high-flying Sagittarius until 5:44PM ET. For those who are not working on Good Friday, consider taking Thursday off to count your blessings. Or, if you took yesterday’s post about the Tarot Card of the Week to heart, use some of the self-reliant Aries energy that’s in abundance right now…and create some abundance for yourself. Here are 30 nifty suggestions — if you’re short on ideas.

Man, is there a lot of upheaval in the headlines. How many times we will see the word “fiery” on the front page? Plenty, suggested by planetary patterns — so I’ll leave you with a positive application of a ginormous ball of fire. This just in: solar power is getting cheaper and cheaper by the day…and it’s only a matter of time before it becomes “a dominant force in the energy markets”. One can only hope…

…and now, here to sing the subheading of today’s forecast — please give a warm welcome to Miss Bette Midler & Mr. Bing Crosby…or if you prefer your optimism to be sung by an Aries — here’s Miss Aretha Franklin. Have a fabulous day!

Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday 4/15/2014: Full Moon Fallout; Venus Trine Jupiter

Writing this forecast in the aftermath of the Full Moon/Eclipse; the Libra Moon went void-of-course after reaching its exact fullness at 3:42AM ET. Who stayed up to watch it?  It was a lovely sight here on the beach in Hawaii: a red Moon with the extra bonus of Mars, the Red Planet right up above.

For most of the Americas, the void of course Moon suggests a slow start or twist to your morning routine. Sleeping in late, to process the fallout from the release suggested by the eclipse, would not be unreasonable. File your taxes and take it easy until 12:20PM ET, when the Moon sinks into the emotional depths of Scorpio, demanding substance and control. There are no exact aspects to the Moon for the rest of the day, though the rose-colored glow of a harmonious connection between the Moon and nebulous Neptune just after midnight can soften whatever upsets arose during the intensity of the past 48 hours.

I meant to note in yesterday’s forecast that a harmonious connection between loving Venus and Jupiter, the cosmic sugar daddy will be exact on Thursday night.  It’s a pattern that in synch with Tarot reader extraordinaire Beth Owlsdaughter’s Card of the Week. Her latest post is filled with wise words for managing challenging times — and this week’s card is perfectly in synch with the potential of the Venus-Jupiter alignment. Check it out and plan accordingly.
