As noted yesterday, today’s Scorpio Moon, needing depth and substance, along with knowledge for the sake of power and control, is void of course all day as of 5:21AM ET. Twists in your efforts to move forward in a straight line are suggested; sometimes this voidy energy feels like stick-shift car in neutral. Enjoy the wandering drift; do something restful if you can. Voids are not necessarily unproductive times; they can be used effectively to execute tasks that are considered routine. However, the flake factor is higher during voids — and this suggests a lower than expected turnout to today’s primary election in New York, and also the possibility of a surprising upset in favor of an underdog…though I seriously doubt that underdog would be Anthony Weiner.
With yesterday’s exact Mars-Saturn militant clash now behind us, planetary patterns for the rest of the week are relatively light. How fascinating to see last week’s call for a military strike in Syria now at least temporarily diffused by an apparent suggestion from Russia on what should be done about Syria’s chemical weapons arsenal. Well, it was noted yesterday that Mercury’s move into Libra suggested a new idea gaining immediate prominence, and while I did not see this particular turn coming, Libra does refer to diplomacy — and keeping the peace. Also noted yesterday: breakthroughs or prominent news in the tech sector, and today Apple is making a Big Announcement about Something; CNBC is all over this story.
In other news, a few Moon in Scorpio-themed stories for your consideration involving knowledge used for the sake of power and control. First, an intriguing piece about how to remain secure in a surveillance state, given the latest news that the NSA apparently has the ability to crack any internet encryption or security measure on the planet. Second, a story that was published yesterday: “New Details in How the Feds Take Laptops at the Border”. And for no particular reason other than it’s a cool story about one farmer whose unique crop-growing strategy appears to preserve soil quality while severely reducing the need for chemical fertilizers, here is “One Weird Trick to Fix Farms Forever” — let’s hope this trick catches on.
Finally, as forecast, George Zimmerman makes headlines again — with more likely to follow in the next several months, as Pluto and Uranus put pressure on Sun at 11 degrees of Libra. If you have a planet between 9 and 13 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn, that’s a supercharged pressure point in your life, too. Make an appointment and we’ll talk about how to manage it.
