The best thing I can say about today is that it offers exceptional creative potential. Moon moves into dreamy Pisces at 1:13AM ET and hooks up with nebulous — and yet often visionary — Neptune shortly thereafter. Note where your dreams take you. There could be a fine line between visionary and fantasy/delusion today, suggested by an obsessive connection between Mercury (mind, communication) and Neptune. What did they know and when did they know it — and how long will they deny it until the truth finally comes out? Or…how long will they cling to belief in a fairy tale, until reality smacks them out of their rose-colored confection?
Meanwhile another obsessive connection — between ruthless Pluto and aggressive Mars — suggests the potential for power plays, overt force (and force of will) and perhaps an explosion or two. That’s great for the planet and your own personal world if you’re wearing a white hat; perhaps not so great (for the rest of us) if you’re up to no good. Planetary patterns suggest potential resources; humans decide what to do with them.
Sun (life force) and Venus (social expression) are both in emotional/material security-needing Cancer. Mars (energy applied) is in multi-tasking, cerebral Gemini. Saturn (necessary controls) is in striving-to-be fair and balanced Libra. All four planets are “running wild” today, competing for and demanding attention. Ruthless Pluto and disruptive Uranus are squaring off, determined to tear down a facade or institution somewhere (look no further than today’s headlines — and remember that this aspect is in effect for the next few years). And yet…today’s Moon in soulful Pisces suggests a need for sensitivity and empathy, augmented by deep insight and enthusiasm. And Pisces is very adaptable — and in fact most humans are adaptable, which is why Los Angeles didn’t fall apart during the dreaded “Carmaggeddon” over the weekend. Which makes a strong case for not freaking out too much over the changes happening now and in the near future. Which brings me back to the exceptional creative potential suggested by today’s planetary patterns. The only natural break (in the form of a Moon void) comes this Wednesday AM on the East Coast and Friday PM on the West Coast. Arise, go forth and be creative — and of consequence.
Meanwhile, how about that “surprise upset” in yesterday’s Women’s World Cup between the US and Japan http://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/18/sports/soccer/japan-battles-back-to-win-womens-world-cup.html?_r=1&hp And the Moon was void of course all day, which generally favors the underdog. Coincidence or conspiracy?
Last but not least, a reader asked for commentary on Casey Anthony’s horoscope. Birth data: March 19, 1986 in Warren, OH time (unconfirmed source) 3:10PM. Sun in Pisces, Moon in Cancer. I did not closely follow this case, so can’t comment on the time line of events or other details. But even without an exact birth time, one thing that strikes me about this horoscope is the strong potential for prominence/fame. Specifically, this horoscope is likely to be known for idealism (vision or fantasy/delusion), charisma (seductive glamor, personal magnetism or a web of deception), creativity and/or sensitivity or a high self-regard.
