Ohhh…what a lot of news to process today….like a raindrop hanging on edge of a leaf, trembling as it contemplates a sudden release….falling into the ground…being absorbed and assimilated…into something greater than itself…
Clearly I’m writing under the influence of the Sun at the end of Pisces…only two more days and then the Sun will be reborn in Aries, and a new cycle begins. Trouble is, some people experience the end of Pisces as if it really is THE END. They can’t believe there’s a new dawn just around the corner. They give up hope; they wallow; they drown; they plan their escape. And here I would be thinking of yesterday’s reported suicide of fashion-model-turned-fashion-designer L’Wren Scott, also known as Mick Jagger’s significant other for 13 years. There’s some confusion about Ms. Scott’s birth date, though Wikipedia reports it as April 28th, 1964 in Salt Lake City. If that is true, her horoscope has been going through a long transit involving nebulous Neptune, ruler of Pisces, to her Saturn, suggesting a bewildering dissolution of structure and security. They say it’s always darkest before the dawn…
Today the Moon is still in relationship-oriented Libra, gliding unimpeded through business hours until 9:07PM ET, when it makes an impassioned connection with Mars…and then goes void with a sigh until 5:13AM ET. A communicative connection between Venus (aesthetics, social expression, money, women) in friendly, offbeat Aquarius and Uranus (aviation, space, seismic activity) in pioneering Aries is exact at 3PM ET. Network to your heart’s content. Experience some unconventional art. Explore that sudden attraction to that kinda cute technogeek with the cobalt-streaked hair. Feel free to move beyond your comfort zone. During the void: chill, chill, chill…and enjoy where the drift takes you.
With Mars retrograde, I have noticed a lot of headlines involving a review of issues involving cars. And Mars just happens to refer to cars. Amazing! Here’s a follow-up about an auto plant in Ohio that Mitt Romney allegedly said was doomed because of the taxpayer-funded rescue of American automakers. Well, that’s not quite what happened. Meanwhile, Toyota has halted production at a couple of plants in India because of labor issues. And General Motors is rushing to REcall a number of cars after a “decade-long failure” to correct a certain defect. In Paris, cars were actually banned — well, for one day. Finally, Tesla, the revolutionary car company, is battling mountains of red tape that are preventing sales of its electric vehicles in New Jersey and other states. Oh, I can’t imagine who might object to the sale of electric cars…
With Venus sextile Uranus today, it makes sense that we’d see a piece about how a novel technology is changing social expression at Virgin Airlines, along with seemingly-credible developments on the search for the missing plane, MH370. Reflecting a more “out of the blue” potential of a story involving Venus (a woman) and Uranus (aviation), the internet was abuzz with a post by Courtney Love, wondering if she might have found MH370 after scanning a satellite map. Far out — but not really. With Mercury (thoughts, communication) running wild in Leo and prominently placed in her horoscope, it makes perfect sense that Courtney Love would need to share her research with the Entire Free World — with drama and flair.
Meanwhile, a story about a more collective sharing of resources — and how non-profit companies are on the rise — also seems fitting — and also reflects the bigger-picture economic disruptions suggested by the never-ending Uranus-Pluto square, a.k.a. The Planetary Pattern Everyone Should Be Talking About. What is this thing called “zero marginal cost society?” Click on the preceding link. The Uranus-Pluto square suggests — nay, demands — major change, especially with the latest climate report from NASA. Did someone say end of the world? Perhaps will we get to that point faster if top-secret trade agreements like the Trans-Pacific Partnership go forward. This deal has been mentioned in prior posts; here’s an op-ed about it in a mainstream newspaper…finally.
But of course it’s not the end of the world…it can’t be…even though we’re in the last two days of the Sun in Pisces — and the end of the astrological year. A new year is just around the corner. Have faith! And let this story which broke today really blow your mind: scientists have detected what they have long predicted; i.e., primordial gravitational waves — a.k.a. the first tremors of the Big Bang.
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
And God said, “Let there be light…”
