From earthy to airy…that’s the way this day goes. We begin with the Sun in the final throes of Taurus (and earth sign), and the Moon at the end of Virgo (also earth), still driving for perfection in material-security/sensual concerns. After a brief (19 minute) void, Moon enters people-pleasing Libra(air) at 1:07PM ET; at 5:10PM ET the Sun enters information junkie Gemini (also air). Who cares what you have; tell me what you think or what you know. This concentration of planets in Air signs should noticeably pick up the pace.
Bright ideas and innovative thinking, bordering on genius will likely be in headlines and perhaps in your own personal world, especially if you have a planet or angle at 11 degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces. But the folks who are really in the hot seat are those born around the 1st of April, June, October and January — or those with a planet or angle at 11 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. Why? Because those are the degrees that are lit up by the third exact square between rebel Uranus at 11 Aries and ruthless Pluto at 11 Capricorn, suggesting major upheavals, breakouts, break-ups and other disruptions to the Establishment status quo. Do you know how many countries and other entities, including the European Union, were established on January 1st?
A few headlines I’m seeing as I type include a series of powerful tornadoes ripping across the Midwest and this supercool piece about an 18 year-old who’s invented a device that can re-charge a cell phone battery in mere seconds, not hours. Even cooler: the 18 year-old is female. It will be interesting to see what other news hits the wires on Tuesday, when the Libra Moon engages with the Uranus-Pluto square just before 9AM ET.
Your Moon voids for the week are Wednesday 3:35AM ET – 4:55PM ET and Friday, 9:55AM ET to 5:49PM ET. These are your natural rest periods; suffice it to say that they can be frustrating when they happen during normal business hours, as efforts to move forward in a straight line are more likely to be thwarted by twists and aimless wandering. Forge ahead today and tomorrow…
