A slow start to the early morning, for those of you up and about between 2:43AM and 7:48AM ET, when the sensual and/or stubborn Taurus Moon is void-of-course. Make sure you grind your coffee beans before you pour hot water over them. Otherwise roll with any twists that may arise in your efforts to move forward in a straight line.
At 7:48AM ET, the Moon ingresses into Gemini, driving the day with chatty, mental energy that needs to inform and be informed. Who’s the smartest kid in the room? Some guy with Moon in Gemini, hoping you’ll notice his clever way with words and find him ever-so-entertaining. Use this day to buzz through your to-do list, noting the potential dreamy, spacey vibe that settles in around 7:58PM ET, when the Moon is squared by nebulous Neptune. That may put a confusing spin on some of your communications. Try going non-verbal in an evening of music, creativity, healing and other spirited pursuits.
And now, the news.
As noted in prior forecasts, between yesterday’s disruptive hook-up between the Aries Sun and rebel Uranus and this morning’s (4:39AM ET) square between the Sun and ruthless Pluto, a power play involving resources — as in, who’s got it; who doesn’t — was expected. Could we be less surprised by yesterday’s Supreme Court 5-4 decision striking down “a decades-old cap” on the total amount any individual can contribute to federal candidates in a two-year election cycle”. NYT columnist Gail Collins wasn’t surprised, writing about it with her usual chipper spin. Wanna buy a political candidate? You might not be able to afford one, but last weekend in Las Vegas, four prospective presidential nominees went to Las Vegas to meet with one man who can.
Meanwhile, there’s more “news from underground,” as anticipated. A volcano in Peru that had been dormant for about 40 years has erupted, after rumbling back to life last September (right around the last exact Uranus-Pluto square). Chile is experiencing aftershocks after an 8.2 quake occurred on Tuesday. Coincidence or conspiracy?
Finally, in the spirit of the ruggedly individualistic, eccentric and rebellious breath of fresh air suggested by Tuesday’s Sun-Uranus conjunction in me-me-me Aries, check out this story — currently the second most-emailed on the NYT website. Dr. John Kitchin is a man who made “seismic changes late in life,” ditching a career as a successful neurologist for a simple life by the beach. Now, he spends his days in a rollerblading state of meditation, and he’s never been happier. What’s the deal? Is he nuts? The reader comments on this article are fascinating. Some applaud his convention-defying lifestyle; others judge him harshly. Why is that? What do you think?
If you enjoy reading this daily forecast, you’ll really love finding out what it means in your own personal world. Astrology is an awesome tool for understanding “why am I like this?” and “why is this happening?” Here’s how you can book a personal astro-logical consultation.
