Moon entered “make it happen” Capricorn yesterday at 6:16PM NY time, encouraging your plans for world domination. A communicative connection between Sun and Saturn (structure, control, discipline) reinforces the potential for accomplishment today. And wait…there’s more: Mars, planet of action leaves high-flying Sagittarius for earthy Capricorn, too, where it will meet up with ruthless Pluto and Mercury (which will be retrograde) on December 13th. Grabs for power, some of which could be quite brutal, are likely to hit the headlines this week. Karmically, of course, brutality will not serve you, but you can still put in a bid for enlightened empowerment. Just be mindful that others may not be as psychically clear as you are; this will help you cope with whatever trips they may be on.
Meanwhile, a brief look at Julian Assange…born July 3, 1971 in Townsville, Australia — birth time unknown — Sun in Cancer, Moon in Scorpio. The Cancer Sun can be quite devoted to building security, coupled with a need, suggested by the Scorpio Moon, for knowledge as a means of control; to be seen as a person of depth and significance; to be self-sufficient and seen as right. Add to this a sense of being on a mission coupled with profound faith (Jupiter in Scorpio conjunct Neptune in Sagittarius), and a willingness to shake up the status quo (Sun squared by Uranus). Well, that works, doesn’t it?
No comment on yesterday’s “compromise” on the extension of the Bush tax cuts except to note that measures which increase the gap between the haves and the have-nots may increase the probability of even more radical measures to come, as suggested by the upcoming clash between rebellious Uranus and ruthless Pluto in 2012. Enlightened souls can still find many joys in life for which to give thanks; so take time to express gratitude for something — or someone — precious while you’re out seizing this day : )
