Happy last week of 2017!
The Moon was void in Pisces for most of Christmas Day, encouraging you to go with the flow and not make mountains out of molehills. It also suggested resisting the impulse to buy flannel sheets online, no matter how tempting the discounts offered. The 25th was notable for one other pattern and a shift: Venus (women, money, social expression and aesthetics) left high-flying Sagittarius for Capricorn at 12:26 AM ET. Twelve hours later, Venus met up with Saturn.
In social-climbing Capricorn, Venus suggests an enterprising spin on social interactions for the next few weeks. If you were born with Venus in Capricorn, you could be quite adept at knowing how to use relationships to get ahead. You may wait until later in life before realizing that love is more valuable than status. A Venus-Saturn meet-up (the technical term is “conjunction”) suggests a sobering or ambitious reality check on issues related to Venus. “Reality check” might also include cuts, limitations and other brick walls. Here are some Venus-Saturn headlines from a past conjunction.
Meanwhile, Moon charged into Aries last night at 7:27 PM ET, where it will zoom until early THURSDAY. Humming in the background is a harmonious alignment between Mars (action, yang, war, courage, anger) and Neptune (fantasy, lies, drugs, forgiveness, fog) that will be exact Thursday at 1 AM ET. Mars-Neptune aspects suggest charisma and other forms of pixie-dust, facilitating starpower and scams. Less so with the scams, given that is an easy Mars-Neptune connection, but still. This particular configuration conjures up images of secrets, sexuality, peace offerings, spirituality and (the potential downside) more than a little fanaticism, likely of a religious kind.
The Aries Moon makes its weekly clash with Pluto and Uranus at 5:25 AM ET and 3:57 PM ET on WEDNESDAY — watch for impulsive power plays and/or upsets around those times. Your Moon voids — times to chill and avoid impulse shopping purchases — are WEDNESDAY 3:57 PM ET until 1:23 AM ET on THURSDAY; FRIDAY 9 AM ET until 3:31 AM ET on SATURDAY. By then emotions will be on the rise, waxing to fullness with the Moon on New Years Day, 9:24 PM ET in Cancer.
And now, the news.
Venus (social expression, love) was exactly trine Uranus (freedom) last Wednesday…and also in an applying conjunction with Saturn. Freedom and a reality check about family obligations and social expression? How about “Debunking Myths About Estrangement.”? In this NYT article, “new research challenges the deeply held notion that family relationships can’t be dissolved and suggests that estrangement is not all that uncommon.”
Take the far-out potential of the Sagittarius Sun in harmony with Uranus (12/16/17), along with a New Moon exactly on the Galactic Center AND a REview of the past suggested by Mercury in retrograde, and here’s this from 12/18: Former Navy pilot describes UFO encounter studied by secret Pentagon program.
Saturn and Capricorn refer to bones. With Saturn in Capricorn, WaPo offers this: “Calcium and Vitamin D Supplements May Not Prevent Bone Fractures.”
From yesterday, when Venus met Saturn (and got down to business): “Business Schools Now Teaching #MeToo, N.F.L. Protests and…” Here’s another involving art, women and gobs of cash: Clock Is Ticking on $10 Million Reward in Gardner Art Heist. This one involves isolation, social expression, faith and other spirits (Mars trine Neptune), for better or for worse: Thousands Once Spoke His Language in the Amazon. Now, He’s the Only One.
It would be good for Utah if Hatch, having finally caught the Great White Whale of tax reform, were to call it a career. If he doesn’t, the voters should end it for him.
