Well, if it was something of consequence that needed to be shipped yesterday, you might consider holding off until Friday. The security-seeking Taurus Moon goes void at 8:55AM ET, not to enter Gemini until 9:37PM ET. And it is going void on a potentially cranky connection to stern Saturn. An extra cup of caffeine, anyone?
Shake it off with a sigh and stick to what’s routine, if you can’t flake out at the office today. Sure, it may feel as if you are herding cats, as efforts to move forward in a straight line may be oddly beset with twists and delays. But once you get into a groove, go with the flow — which is likely to get more pleasant as the day progresses.
Meanwhile, a round of applause as jolly Jupiter turns direct at 10 degrees of Cancer. If you know what area of your horoscope is ruled by Jupiter (hint: it’s the house with Sagittarius on the cusp), it may feel like you’ve been in a holding pattern in the areas related to that house. A horoscope with Jupiter ruling the second house of finances and self worth, for example, may have experienced a delay regarding those issues while Jupiter was retrograde. With Jupiter turning direct, forward motion can now be expected. If you have a planet or angle at 10-11 degrees of just about every sign, you are personally affected by this expansive shift. What bounty might you soon receive? Count your blessings and buy a couple of lottery tickets. Consult your local astrologer for further details.
And now, some random headlines:
I have a headache. Sort of a headline, isn’t it? I attribute this to Mars, which rules the head, as well as the sign Aries, being retrograde. Anyone else with Aries and Mars prominent in their horoscopes reaching for aspirin or acupuncture this week? Remedy: work out the backed up energy — literally — at the gym. Or just take a hike. It will help. I hope.
Saturn is also retrograde. Saturn rules the skin, bones and teeth. If you have Saturn or Capricorn prominent in your horoscope those areas of the body may be health concerns at some point in your life.
Meanwhile, people are still talking about John Travolta’s mangled pronouncement of Idina Menzel’s name at the Oscars, so I thought it would be fun to take a look at his horoscope. We know we’re going to see some nebulous Neptune action, given that his behavior was rather bewildering/surreal, right? And since the behavior was so disruptive and prominent, we can assume — before even looking at the horoscope — that the never-ending Uranus-Pluto square is also involved.
OK, so. One look at the horoscope and — there you have it: transiting nebulous Neptune just barely past an exact connection with Travolta’s Venus (social expression) in Pisces and his Mars (action) in opinionated Sagittarius. And there’s his Midheaven (public status) at 13 Aries — with Pluto squaring it at 13 Capricorn (prominence!)…and about to get hit by the full-blown Cardinal Grand Cross (Uranus-Pluto-Jupiter-Mars) in late April. I would not be surprised to read of something big happening for him around that time — and if we don’t hear about it this spring, keep an eye on October — and again in January of 2015.
Also of note: transiting Saturn at 23 Scorpio was stationary retrograde and exactly squaring Travolta’s natal Pluto at 23 Leo on Oscar night. Saturn – Pluto contacts are known for being tough….as in, “whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” Travolta has Moon in Virgo, which needs needs needs to be correct. Ouch.
