OK campers, the long Moon void is over as of 2:24AM ET. From now until 6:08PM ET, Moon is fully engaged in Virgo, offering plenty of drive to organize, discern, sort and make things right. Take time to daydream around 5PM ET, when nebulous Neptune opposes the Moon; otherwise, move through your tasks with astonishing efficiency. You can do it!
And now, the news.
A lot happened last week that I did not share because I was distracted by dental drama. But last week’s headlines were extremely significant, as they reflected the “crisis of awareness” suggested by the Cardinal Grand Cross/Square everyone should have been talking about. For example, I’ve been saying for a couple of years now that one of the Really Big Crises That Would Change the World, as reflected by the seven exact squares between rebel Uranus and ruthless Pluto, would be climate change and the realization that the reckless, short-term thinking of human beings has caused it. And headlines last week and this week, too, continue to support that realization. Here’s a study released yesterday that shows how climate change has already impacted the United States, state-by-state. And here’s the NYT editorial about that study, published just minutes ago. And here’s an op-ed by Jon Huntsman, Jr. (R-UT), urging members of his party not to ignore the writing that is so clearly on the wall. Coincidence or conspiracy?
Another big story last week was the tape of LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling apparently advising his bi-racial girlfriend “not to bring black people” to basketball games. How does this news event reflect the huge potential for corruption exposed and a disruption of the status quo suggested by the Uranus-Pluto square? Because the world of major league sports stuff leaves me somewhat glassy-eyed (unless there’s a triple lutz involved), I was challenged to put L’Affaire Sterling in planetary perspective. Thankfully astrologer Bill Herbst , whose posts are rare these days — wrote a commentary on April 30th.
As noted in prior forecasts, I discovered Bill’s website 10 years ago; he was writing about the potential suggested by the Uranus-Pluto cycle way back then. I was determined to learn everything I could about why he saw things the way he did (the passage of time has proven him right)…and now that I can see them for myself, I share them with you. If you are new to this forecast and aren’t quite clear on why the Cardinal Grand Cross and the Uranus-Pluto cycle is so important, read the commentary Bill posted on April 10th. It sums up much of what I’ve written in bits and pieces during the past few years.
Last, but not least — thank you to those of you who were inspired to send donations this week — wow! I need to check my horoscope to see what transits have prompted this small outpouring of appreciation, as often months go by without that big gold button on the Daily Forecast page being clicked. Please know that these delightful surprises made my day…may your kind generosity be returned to you a thousandfold. Gratitude!
