Thank you!"

Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 10/24/2013: A Dream Home with Moon in Cancer

OK, break’s over. The Moon is fully engaged in Cancer as of 11:36PM ET last night. This suggests a focus on building and maintaining emotional and home security needs: connecting with family, tending to your home and whatever else nurtures and nourishes. With Mercury retrograde, a REview of or REconnection with these needs may also be on the table. Dreams may have been especially vibrant upon waking,  courtesy of a lovely connection between the intuitive Moon and nebulous Neptune.

The morning and early afternoon have an easy flow, bathed in a rose-colored glow or fog, courtesy of the alignment between the Sun and Neptune discussed in yesterday’s forecast. By early evening on the East Coast, however, we can expect the weekly jolt, revelation and/or power plays that occurs when the Moon makes contact with the disruptive Uranus-Pluto square. You’ll feel this more personally  if you were born 9-10 days into Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn…or if you have a planet or angle at 9 degrees of those signs.  Don’t know where your planets are? Well, for heaven’s sake, make an appointment for a personal consultation and find out! Really, there’s too much going on in the cosmos, reflected in world events, to remain clueless about how it is likely to impact YOU.

So…yesterday as you know, the Moon was void of course for 27 hours, and there was a major sports event last night, a.k.a. Game 1 of the World Series. The supposedly red-hot St. Louis Cardinals went up against the Boston Red Sox and the Sox trounced the Cardinals, 8-1. The general rule of Moon voids is that in sports matches, we can expect upsets, twists and outcomes that favor the underdog. Here’s how the game was written up by the New York Times:

BOSTON — Errors, missed pop ups and fat pitches hardly seemed like the Cardinal Way. The St. Louis Cardinals had stormed into the World Series while priding themselves on this ideal of professionalism and strong fundamentals.

It made it all the more surprising when they figuratively tripped over their own feet Wednesday night, falling to the Red Sox, 8-1, in Game 1 of the World Series. Making matters worse, they also lost their star right fielder Carlos Beltran to injury…

Fascinating, isn’t it?

In other news, I’m seeing the disruptive and destructive potential of the never-ending Uranus-Pluto square, combined with the rarefied artsy-vibe of tomorrow’s Sun-Neptune alignment reflected perfectly in an art exhibition opening today at the Smithsonian called “Damage Control: Art and Destruction Since 1950.” What perfect timing! Meanwhile, Germany is quite upset over a recent report alleging that the U.S. tapped into Chancellor Angela Merkel’s cellphone, and Germany is not alone in its outrage. Given the upsets to the status quo suggested in the U.S. horoscope in mid-2014, it will be interesting to see how stories like these develop over the next year.

Following up on Monday’s forecast, JPMorgan Chase is making headlines as it faces another penalty for “turning a blind eye” to the Ponzi scheme run by its customer, Bernie Madoff. Can we expect another bold action from Chairman & CEO Jamie Dimon, reflecting the high tension happening in his horoscope? His Mars (planet of action) is under pressure from rebel Uranus through February of 2014, along with pressure to his Mercury (mindset, communication) from other planetary patterns. Here’s one possible brilliant maneuver we might see — this one involving taxpayer dollars and the “record fine” allegedly levied against the bank for its mortgage practices leading up to the 2008 financial crisis.

As we approach the fourth exact hit of the Uranus-Pluto square on November 1st, we can expect significant news involving aviation, nuclear energy, seismic events, revolution, transformation and the cosmos, just to name a few keywords associated with Uranus and Pluto. Here’s a story that hit yesterday about the cosmos: the discovery of a galaxy far, far away…

Peace out.

Don’t know where your planets are? Well, for heaven’s sake, make an appointment for a personal consultation and find out! Really, there’s too much going on in the cosmos, reflected in world events, to remain clueless about how it is all likely to impact YOU.

Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday 1/8/2013: Lighten Up

Moon entered high-flying Sagittarius at 3:28AM ET.  Well that should lighten the intensity many felt over the past few days. Note your dreams upon waking, as a challenge between the gamboling Sag Moon and nebulous Neptune may have taken you on a sublime or surreal journey. Moon in Sagittarius is an excellent time for travel and other activities that broaden your mind, including righteous and fiery discussions on philosophical subjects. We may hear some particularly bombastic opinions expressed around 3:05PM ET, when the Moon is opposed by expansive Jupiter. This opposition also suggests other indulgences, such as a binge or shopping spree.

We are in the dark side of the Moon, a time for wrapping up whatever intentions you set at the New Moon few weeks ago. Remember what those were? Well if not, you have a chance to set your intentions anew on January 11th, with the Capricorn New Moon at 2:44PM ET. Next week would be the time to launch important new ventures.

Get it off your desk today or plan to ship it on Thursday or early Friday. Moon goes void-of-course at 9:28PM ET tonight, not to enter the next sign until 3:54AM ET Thursday. If you are new to the forecast (welcome!) and you are not familiar with Moon voids, click here. Understanding this very common planetary pattern can save you plenty of grief. Basically, voids suggest 1) efforts to move forward in a straight line are more likely to be fraught with delays, twists and misunderstandings;and 2) crises that crop up are often much ado about nothing (i.e., don’t panic!). Voids are wonderful for chilling out, brainstorming and recharging — and if you can do that during the all-day void on Wednesday, good on you. Fun fact:  sports matches played during voids often favor the underdog and are notable for surprise upsets. As I type, Alabama is trouncing top-ranked Notre Dame 28-0 during Monday’s all-day void, and the game is not even half over.

And now, the news. I saw plenty of headlines reflecting truth about corruption, suggested by the annual hook-up between ruthless Pluto and mental Mercury. Lance Armstrong is reportedly close to admitting his past drug use. Investigative reporter Matt Taibbi filed another must-read expose, this one about the TARP funds in the alleged bailout of 2008.  And if you were a part of Occupy Wall Street in the fall of 2011, congratulations, the FBI may have a file on you.

Last, but not least, another story about harsh realities — with a happy ending. This 77-year-old man spent 14 years in prison, 10 of those in solitary confinement, where his only companions were a few rats and a frog. He was sent to prison in the early 70s, after a brief career as an urban guerrilla. When he was apprehended, he was apparently shot six times. When he was released from prison, he embarked on a new career and worked his way up the ranks. In a nation known for its cattle, he is a vegetarian. He donates 90% of his salary to charity. His lifestyle is described as “austere,” but he seems quite content  — and is happily married. He is Jose Mujica, the president of Uruguay, and for those of you who are going through tough times, I thought you might find his story inspiring. Plus, transiting Pluto at 9 Capricorn is exactly opposing Mujica’s Venus at 9 Cancer, suggesting an empowering surge in social prominence — so of course he’s making news at this time. Isn’t that interesting? (birth data: 5/20/35 in Montevideo, Uruguay)
