A bit of a stop-and-go week, at least during business hours in the Americas. Today, a proactive Capricorn Moon starts off in harmonious aspect to mental Mercury at 5:56AM ET. That’s good for writing up your to-do list. Five hours later, exuberant expansion is followed a potential jolt or revelation, as the Moon makes its weekly collision with the never-ending Uranus-Pluto square. A power play, emotional catharsis or an opportunity to heal may present itself at 2:57PM ET; the rest of the day is free and clear.
Get it off your desk today, as the Moon is void-of-course at 8:35A ET on Tuesday…not to enter the next sign, Aquarius, until 6:39PM ET. Wednesday looks good for getting things done; Thursday is another long void from 9:13AM ET until 8:10PM ET. Clear sailing on Friday. Moon void from 9:44AM ET until 9:54PM ET on Saturday. See what I mean by “stop-and-go”? For those new to this forecast (welcome!), here’s the 411 on how to handle Moon voids.
We are in the balsamic phase of the Moon; i.e., at the end of the current lunar cycle. Use this week to wrap up projects initiated at the New Moon on March 1st. The next New Moon is on Sunday at 2:45PM ET, and it looks like a powerhouse start to potentially volatile April. Patterns this week are comparatively light: mental Mercury gets a boost from expansive Jupiter on Wednesday and perspicacious early Friday morning. Saturday presents a potential mixed message when loving Venus (women, art, money, aesthetics) makes a harmonious connection to Mars (men, action, war) in the afternoon…and then gets smacked down or structured a couple of hours later by stern Saturn. Relationship challenge?
And now, the news. Last Saturday’s exact hook-up between mental Mercury and nebulous Neptune suggested music, spirituality, drugs and the surreal. Judges on the Italian version of The Voice were blown away by Cristina Scuccia, a.k.a. the Singing Nun. Meanwhile, a bizarre drug bust involving cocaine, condoms and a package addressed to the Vatican has investigators baffled. Add the nitty-gritty dark potential of Saturn in Scorpio (forcing us to look at the most unsavory matters of life and death), and we might be talking about a 16-year old who gave birth to a stillborn baby and is about to be tried for murder.
I’ll end on a high note — literally. Have you heard about the Uranus in Aries daredevil Justin Casquejo? He’s also sixteen, and last week he made headlines when he climbed up to the top of the tallest building in New York, a.k.a., One Freedom Tower. In the middle of the night. Despite the “ring of steel” security measures in place at the site….
Thank you for reading this forecast and sharing it the with rest of the Free World.
