Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 3/29/2012: Resistance is Futile

A day of many moods,  as the need for information drives the morning with Moon in chatty Gemini. A rest period is called for when Moon goes void of course on a stable connection to serious Saturn at 2:05PM…not to enter Cancer until 7:07PM ET. Unplug from the hubbub if you can, and resist the urge to be swept into any drama or power plays that may arise during this time. In the evening, the focus turns to a dream of home sweet home and the security home provides.

Pluto in Capricorn exactly squares the Sun in Aries at 3:54 PM. You are likely feeling this potent pattern personally if you were born 7 to 11 days into the signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. Significant challenges and changes in your life are strongly suggested, brought by forces seemingly beyond your control. No, it’s not all bad; Pluto transits can be quite empowering, even though structures you have relied upon may be taken away. Rise from the ashes and build yourself anew!

Inventor, designer and engineer Buckminster Fuller had a few notable things to say about change, worth considering if you are currently coping with the above:

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” ― Richard Buckminster Fuller

“There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it’s going to be a butterfly. ” ― Richard Buckminster Fuller

And speaking of coping and transformation, here’s a bit from Fuller’s Wikipedia biography:

“By age 32, Fuller was bankrupt and jobless, living in public, low-income housing in Chicago, Illinois. In 1922,Fuller’s young daughter Alexandra died from complications from polio and spinal meningitis. Allegedly, he felt responsible and this caused him to drink frequently and to contemplate suicide for a while. He finally chose to embark on “an experiment, to find what a single individual [could] contribute to changing the world and benefiting all humanity.

Fuller was experiencing a major Neptune transit (an “ego wipeout”), during the above time frame, and somehow he pulled himself together and lived to be 87. More inspiring words from this extraordinary mind can be found here:
