Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday 10/17/2012: Mind the Void

Moon is void-of-course in Scorpio for most of the day, not to enter opinionated, fiery Sagittarius until 8:26PM ET…then promptly squares off with nebulous Neptune, setting a potentially dreamy vibe for the night. Feel like broadening your horizons? If you are in New York — Williamsburg, to be precise — then wander over to this otherworldly place no later than 7:30PM. I will be giving a talk called “The Intelligent Person’s Guide to Astrology” (suggested donation: $15 How cool is that?

Until then, roll with any twists that may crop up in your efforts to move forward. Long void days can feel like they are moving in slow-motion, which is especially frustrating for people who work in fast-paced environments or are pressured by deadlines. This makes Moon voids an excellent exercise in  patience and faith.

And now, the news — and there were plenty of headlines yesterday reflecting planetary patterns, especially the square between Venus (women, art, money, social graces) in detail-oriented Virgo vs. over-the-top Jupiter in information junkie Gemini. We had a major art heist in the Netherlands; the CEO of  Citibank suddenly stepped down and a defense of “literary excess” made the pages of the New York Times.  I must point out the need for details — a key theme in Monday’s New Moon — was clearly expressed by the website, which I saw posted umpteen times on Facebook like so much kudzu.  And let us not forget the grand statement made in last night’s debate — “binders full of women”  — now trending everywhere. If that phrase doesn’t convey the over-the-top potential of Venus (women) squared by Jupiter (expansive) in information-obsessed signs (Gemini & Virgo), please show me one that does.

As for the debate, it was filled with jabs, exactly as anticipated. Zing! Zap! Ker-Pow! I think it is fair to say that everyone who favors Romney thinks their candidate did an excellent job, while those who support Obama are no longer on suicide watch. If you are still one of the undecided, consider taking this nifty quiz, courtesy of the non-partisan website, It will match your beliefs on all kinds of issues with the candidate whose beliefs are in synch with yours. Even if you know which candidate you are voting for, chances are you will find this quiz an eye-opener.
