Moon entered people-pleasing Libra Sunday at 3:06AM ET, where efforts to be appreciated may have been dampened by a challenge between serious, disciplined Saturn and loving Venus…and also by a sudden jolt, flash of inspiration or break for independence several hours later.
Today, the only exact aspect is a stability-seeking connection between the Sun (life force) and Saturn. That should help expedite whatever lands on your desk this morning. However, note that Mars (constructive energy applied and/o anger, aggression) AND Pluto (depth of perspective & resourcefulness and/or explosive, vengeful, nefarious control freak from hell) continue to run wild, suggesting the potential for more than the usual amount of “if it bleeds, it leads” headlines too disturbing to reference in this forecast. If you read the headlines over the weekend, you know what I’m talking about.
Last month, when I first looked ahead to planetary patterns this week and next, I wondered what sudden, hugely prominent events and volatility we’d be seeing in the headlines. Why? Because the Sun (life force) is fast approaching the first degree of Capricorn, which corresponds to the Winter Solstice on December 22, AND it is challenged by intense, status quo-disrupting Uranus. Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn are the signs that start the seasons: Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter, respectively. A planet at the very beginning of those signs tends to command attention.
Interesting to note yesterday’s status quo-disrupting announcement of the death of North Korea’s Kim Jong Il. Already this news is inspiring “worry and anxiety” http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/20/world/asia/kim-jong-ils-death-inspires-anxiety.html?hp
Contrasting with the potential for upsets this week, other planetary patterns suggest peace, inspiration leading to soulful artistry and exuberant feelings of good cheer. Two of those patterns will be exact tomorrow. More anon….
