"I'm a skeptic by nature and I still don't know how she does it, but Elisabeth told me more about myself and about critical points in my life than she could've known beforehand or can possibly be dismissed as coincidence or a parlor trick. And she helped me to use this as a framework to analyze the here and now more clearly. The session was definitely a positive, eye-opening experience."

Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 3/5/2015: Full Moon in Virgo

Get it done early today. The Virgo Moon waxes to fullness at 1:05PM ET, then goes void with a long, deep sigh as it makes an easy connection to potent Pluto at 1:36PM ET. The Virgo faculties of organizing, sorting and perfecting may feel as if they are running wild over the next 24+ hours…or they may take you off on a wandering adventure as you uncover the unexpected. Go with the flow and take some time to chill if you can.

Depth, perspective, power, transformation and regeneration are emphasized by a cooperative connection between the intuitive Pisces Sun and Pluto, exact at 7:18PM ET. There are no exact planetary patterns tomorrow, though the Moon will engage in the next sign — Libra — at 7:52PM ET. That’ll give some focus and intention to your Friday night date.

The Full Moon sheds light on the New Moon projects launched two weeks ago. The Sabian Symbol for that lunation at the last degree of Aquarius suggested a focus on “ancient civilizations”. How interesting  on this Full Moon to see in the headlines that a jawbone found two years ago has now been analyzed and now “pushes human evolution back 400,000 years”.  With Uranus and Pluto so prominent this month, watch for plenty more “news from underground,” literally and figuratively.

The Sabian Symbols for this Full Moon are — for the Sun: “an officer preparing to drill his men”; and for the Moon: “an ornamental handkerchief”. Sabian Symbol guru Blain Bovee writes that the latter is “an image of power and rank embellished by beauty and refinement”. He reminds us of the chivalric code of the Knights of the Round Table, where a fearsome knight might earn the handkerchief of a noble lady, which he would prominently display. His fighting energies would thus be sworn to serve her presumably gentler, kinder and more refined qualities. It is an interesting symbol for this lunation, given the current potency of macho Mars in equally macho Aries, about to shake things up as it makes contact with Uranus and Pluto next week.  Both symbols suggest a discipline, courtesy and more refined expression of raw physical power. Up for the challenge?

As if on cue, the NYT just posted an op-ed on why gender equality is better for men, too. I haven’t read the whole piece yet, but did note this benefit: “have more sex”. Coincidence or conspiracy?

And now, more news.

With the Moon in Virgo yesterday, the Supreme Court heard a case challenging the Affordable Care Act, and  it all boiled down to arguments about four little words. It occurs to me to wonder why they can’t just take a poll of every member of Congress who voted for the law and ask them what they thought they were voting for: tax credits only for people enrolled in state-run health exchanges, or tax credits for state-run and federal-run. Yeah, I know: because the Justice Branch of our government is charged with interpreting the law, as I recall from my elementary school civics classes. And this is what happens when legislators vote for bills they haven’t actually read.

Anyway, the NYT thought Justice Kennedy said something telling. Mother Jones was intrigued by what Ruth Bader Ginsburg had to say. And the New York Post quoted Justice Scalia. In the end, the dress was ruled to be either white/gold or black/blue, depending upon how your eyes are physically equipped to perceive it.

Elsewhere in the world of excruciating Virgo detail, the federal investigation of the Ferguson police department released its findings, and they are an absolute page-turner — a “damning report” on racial bias and abuse. I encourage you to read it.

Another stark reality exposed in the report is this (as you can read on page 9):

City officials have consistently set maximizing revenue as the priority for Ferguson’s law enforcement activity. Ferguson generates a significant and increasing amount of revenue from the enforcement of code provisions. The City has budgeted for, and achieved, significant increases in revenue from municipal code enforcement over the last several years, and these increases are projected to continue…

In other words, with Venus — money issues — becoming supercharged by Uranus and Pluto yesterday, we are invited to realize that cities are cash-strapped. Tax revenues are not enough to fund municipal services. Instead of raising taxes, cities then plan to cover expenses by directing law enforcement departments to make up the difference by collecting fines from its citizens. Law enforcement complies….ruthlessly. It becomes THE priority.  In a related story, six police officers in Whittier, California are suing that city, saying they were forced to meet certain quotas that would generate revenue.

The opposite of Virgo is Pisces, which is intuitive, sensitive and compassionate. “Their Dying Wishes” is an NYT op-ed written by a woman who volunteers in hospice centers and seeks to fulfill the last wishes of people in their final days. These wishes may seem mundane in their simplicity; the stories are tender and kind.  Pisces also refers to endings.

In other news, there will be no more elephant acts at Ringling Brothers’ Circus as of 2018. And in Southern California, stricter emission controls aimed at reducing smog has resulted in healthier lungs for SoCal children. Finally, a man who tried to end it all by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge two years ago says his life was saved — by (an empathic?) sea lion. The man now works as a mental health advocate. Good news.

Astro-logical Forecast For Wednesday 3/4/2015: Netanyahu, Hillary & Other Happenings

OK, campers. Time to clean up the beer cans and confetti strewn about the house in the throes of Tuesday’s all-day Moon void in party-hearty Leo. Whatever it was you were up to, it may well turn out to be of no consequence — but I trust you enjoyed it. As of 6:58AM ET, the Moon finally engages the clutch and shifts into discerning Virgo, eager to sort, analyze and criticize, in its effort to make things right.

If it feels like critical faculties are functioning in overdrive, be advised that the Moon is waxing to fullness, exact at 1:08PM ET on Thursday. Until then, we have a few other significant exact patterns today, as noted on Monday. Three of them supercharge matters related to Venus (women, money, aesthetics, social expression) in me-me-me Aries. At 10:14AM ET, Venus aligns beautifully with expansive Jupiter — and some may take that abundant energy straight to the bank. At 1:46PM ET and 10:46PM ET, Venus is challenged by rebel Uranus and then by potent Pluto, setting the stage for upsets and power plays. Look for more pioneering, fearless and/or daring women in the headlines (a few were noted yesterday).

I’d use the early part of the day to initiate, surfing the wave of optimism suggested by Venus and Jupiter. By 4:48PM ET, the hypercritical Virgo Moon will be challenged by Saturn in Sagittarius, perhaps throwing a wet blanket or a brick wall into the mix.  At 10:14PM ET, just before Venus is squared by resourceful Pluto, Moon is shrouded in the rose-colored or delusional fog of visionary Neptune. Could be dreamy…or just plain wiggy.

Overall, a day ripe with potential. Remember that tomorrow, the Moon goes void at 1:08PM ET, not to enter the next sign until 7:52PM ET on FRIDAY. Get it off your desk today. Onward!

And now, the news.

During yesterday’s long Moon in Leo void, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered an address to Congress.  Jon Stewart has the story. There was plenty of pomp and applause, easily supported by the royal Leo Moon. Mr. Netanyahu was worried about Iran. In 2002, he was worried about Iraq, and said before Congress (thank you, C-span), “If you take out Saddam, I guarantee you it will have enormous, positive reverberations in the region.”

Immediately one wonders, “where is the idealism in his horoscope?” How about Venus in high-flying Sagittarius (right on his Ascendant — of course he’d be well-liked), in a cooperative connection with mental Mercury and Neptune? That’s a giveaway.  And what about that “enormous, positive” outlook? How about a Libra Sun in an expansive connection with Jupiter? Sun-Jupiter aspects can be larger than life — sometimes generous; sometimes bombastic. That need to act with drama (and a sense of regal entitlement, perhaps)? Mars in Leo, together with resourceful Pluto. Astrologer Grant Lewi says Mars in Leo can easily “get away with murder”. And it’s supercharged by Pluto. Wow.

Mr. Netanyahu’s horoscope is looking further supercharged this year and next, as his Libra Moon will be contacted by Uranus, and Jupiter will be at the top of his horoscope. The latter usually coincides with a career boost.

Other dramas making headlines: Hillary Clinton. Yesterday, the NYT was stunned to discover that she is a secretive Scorpio. Why else would she have conducted all of her email correspondence on her own personal account, and not on by an official gov address? Given that this story was running wild during yesterday’s Moon void, we’ll have to wait to see if there is really anything of consequence here.

In fact, Hillary Clinton is such a secretive Scorpio that we do not have a confirmed birth time (she might even be a double Scorpio — doubly secretive and controlling). She definitely has Mars in Leo, however. Hmmm.

In other riveting Moon-void headlines, a baby weasel was photographed clinging to the back of a woodpecker. It looked so cute, until people realized the weasel thought he’d just caught lunch. Still, the photo is amazing.

In news more befitting the empowered feminine potential and/or power plays and upsets involving women (Venus-Uranus-Pluto), yet another woman has come forward to accuse Bill Cosby of rape. We can anticipate a serious disruption of his status quo when Uranus hits his Ascendant. Elsewhere, Sweet Briar — a women’s college — announced it will close, stunning students and its alums.

Meanwhile, former General David Petraeus (and former head of the CIA), is pleading guilty to a misdemeanor (he leaked classified information to his mistress, Paula Broadwell), just as it was announced that Edward Snowden’s lawyers are seeking a way for Snowden to return home and presumably face trial.

Finally, one more item from yesterday’s Moon in Leo void: a Japanese island where orange cats outnumber humans 6 to 1. Yep, they’re running wild…just like yesterday’s Leo (the lion) Moon….
