A disruptive jolt or flash of insight may greet you upon waking, assuming you’re a very early riser on the East Coast, as Moon in people-pleasing Libra confronts rebel Uranus at 4:52AM ET. This morning is filled with high energy and confidence that lifts spirits for just about everyone. Others may be so inflated that they declare, “I’m not bossy, I just have better ideas!” Why? Because Mars, Jupiter and Moon are aligned — ever so briefly — in a Grand Trine pattern (imagine an equilateral triangle), which some see as lucky and very easy-going. Whee! Let’s see if the stock markets go up.
Others (and here I would be thinking of astrologer Noel Tyl), have observed this pattern in conjunction with intellectual snobbery and an attitude of being above the law. And it is this attitude which may lead to the emotional catharsis or power play that may hit the headlines around lunchtime, as Moon is challenged by ruthless Pluto. The Last Quarter Moon, which should recall whatever was on your New Moon agenda a few weeks ago, is exact at 10:58PM ET. Another challenge perhaps, as we get ready to wrap up another lunar cycle.
This idea of being “above the law” made me think of Gerard Depardieu, the French actor who was just granted Russian citizenship. Why? To avoid paying taxes in France. He just moved to Belgium, as you may have heard. In fact, Depardieu does not have an “above the law” Grand Trine in his horoscope. However, he was born on December 27th, so you should immediately know what that means, because we’ve been talking about late December birthdays all month. Depardieu’s Sun at 5 degrees Capricorn and Jupiter at 9 Capricorn suggest a prominent need for freedom and empowerment right this minute, as they are directly impacted by the current Uranus-Pluto square.
The reigning need behind Depardieu’s personal Emancipation Proclamation is a 27 Scorpio Moon (same as Mitt Romney), suggesting a need for power and control. Bet he feels in control now, eh? Depardieu’s Uranus opposes his Sagittarius Ascendant, which to me certainly explains that “just rolled out of a hayloft” animal magnetism (and reinforces that need for freedom thing). Here is his horoscope.
If you were born between the 24th and 31st of December, March, June and September OR if you have an angle or a planet between 4 and 11 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, my money says you’ve got a lot going on right now. Many of my newest clients fall into this category. And so does nearly everyone who is making the headlines…
