Go with the flow today, suggested by the Moon being void-of-course until 7:58PM ET. As Moon voids go, Taurus is arguably one of the easier signs to handle. Other signs can be impetuous, tempting the twists and flakes a Moon void suggests. Taurus tends to be slow, deliberate and patient…which is a good space to put yourself in…and frankly, it may feel like time is moooooving slower than, say…when the Moon was in Aries on Black Friday. Can you appreciate the difference?
Consolidation of power — perhaps of a warrior kind — are also suggested, courtesy of aggressive Mars conjunct ruthless Pluto in enterprising Capricorn. That aspect is exact at 3:14PM ET — at 8 degrees of Capricorn. If you were born around the 30th of March, June, September and December…or if you have a planet or point at 8 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn, you may be feeling a surge of power — if not within you — then around you. Who’s been knocking at your door? China has its Sun at 7 Libra; the horoscope of Japan also has a planet aspected by this macho/warrior pattern. So it’s interesting to see a story about Japan expanding its military power on the front page of the NY Times. And here’s an intriguing allegation of the consolidation of corporate power — in what appears to be a trade agreement that’s described in this article as a “global coup”.
Venus is also highlighted this week — by disciplined Saturn on Monday; by ruthless Pluto on Wednesday and by macho Mars on Thursday. This is one reason why I suggested relationships would be up for constructive advancement and transformation this week. We can also expect news involving women, finance and social expression — and maybe all three themes combined in one story. Warren Buffett is on the front page again with his sobering argument on raising taxes for high-income households. OK, he is not a woman, but he is serious about finance. The Chair of the S.E.C. IS a woman, and she is on the way out; her replacement — another woman — is on the way in. Coolio!
Meanwhile, a Brooklyn-born social activist/”anarchist” named Dorothy Day, who passed away on November 29th in 1980, is reportedly being taken very seriously by Cardinal Timothy Dolan as a candidate for sainthood — and this has taken some people by surprise. Constructive advancement and transformation in relationship, anyone?
Oops — almost forgot: Moon enters chatterbox Gemini at 7:58PM ET and squares nebulous Neptune an hour later — probably in search of escapist entertainment that stimulates conversation. Plan accordingly. Also be aware that Gemini, when it is not grounded, can descend into chaos faster than you can say “Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse”. If you’re feeling like you’re all over the place, an old wives’ tale recommends eating potatoes to keep you earthbound on Wednesday morning.
