Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 10/10/2013: Dream A Little; Do A Lot

A void-of-course Moon between 6:11AM and 11:17AM ET offers an opportunity for extra dream or snuggle time…and/or some odd twists and delays in your efforts to move forward in a straight line. Said dreams may be especially rosy and sublime, courtesy of a bewildering and/or rapturous connection between loving Venus (women, beauty, money, social expression) and nebulous Neptune, noted in yesterday’s forecast & exact at 5:06AM ET. See if your dreams have any messages for you this morning.

Once the Moon gets into gear at 11:17AM ET, it’ll be in the sign of Capricorn, an earthy, enterprising energy that needs to make things happen. There’s relatively smooth sailing on actions taken today, as the Moon makes its way through the cosmos with little interference. Only another dreamy connection to the Moon from nebulous Neptune at 4:10PM ET tosses its two cents into the day. Tomorrow is when things may be shaken up as the Moon makes its weekly contact to the volatile Uranus-Pluto square in the wee hours,  followed by the First Quarter Moon in the evening (ET). That’s when you’re likely to experience a challenge to the New Moon agenda you set last week. Could be supercharged and grandiose…

Meanwhile, in honor of the Venus-Neptune square which suggests a certain feminine mystique, here are a few beguiling women making headlines this week. First, Diana Nyad, whom we mentioned yesterday. She’s almost done with her New York swimming marathon (Neptune rules most things aquatic), raising at least $72,000 for charity (Neptune refers to charity, too). Then there’s the awe-inspiring Malala Yousafzai, who floored Jon Stewart this week when he asked her how she might treat the gunman who shot her in the head because she is an advocate for girls’ education. Talk about grace and higher levels of consciousness (more potential Neptune).

Another beguiling woman: Chelsea Manning. She sent a provocative letter to The Guardian stating that her motive for releasing all those documents to Wikileaks was in the interest of transparency. Frankly, her letter is more reflective of yesterday’s hard-core Mercury-Saturn hook-up, which would favor tangibility and transparency over the alternative.  And then there is Janet Yellen, who’s just been nominated to be the first woman Chair of the Federal Reserve. Why is that beguiling?  I am fascinated by planetary patterns on the day she was born — August 13, 1946 in New York, NY. That’s only a few days before a notorious and effective razzle-dazzler, Bill Clinton.  But the driving force behind Clinton’s oh-so-charismatic personal projection is an earthy, practical Moon in Taurus that needs material comfort and security. I do not know what Ms. Yellen’s Ascendant is — it could be an Earth sign — but there are definitely no planets in Earth in her horoscope. Her Moon is in either Aquarius or Pisces (Air and Water, respectively). And if memory serves, there are no planets in Earth signs in outgoing Fed Chair Ben Bernanke’s horoscope, either. Isn’t that interesting?

Sometimes a lack of Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) suggests a lack of practicality in one’s philosophical ideals. Sometimes it suggests an overcompensating focus on material concerns. Sometimes it suggests an aptitude for or belief in creating material worth out of thin air. Now there’s an intriguing thought. What is the intrinsic value of a C-note, anyway? Who decides what it can buy? With the Moon still in Sagittarius as I type, forgive me if I wax philosophical.

One last salute — not to a beguiling woman, but to an idealistic and artistic man who imagined a more beautiful world. Happy birthday to John Lennon — a day late, but no less sincere. Imagine…
