An enterprising Moon in Capricorn means business this morning, but you’ll be forgiven if you take time to note your dreams upon waking, courtesy of a cooperative connection between the Moon and nebulous Neptune. Go about your business with earthy practicality. Note the potential for an upset as we get close to 3:38PM ET, when that proactive Moon is challenged by rebel Uranus. A few hours later, the need to make things happen can be intense, resulting in an emotional catharsis or power play. You’ll feel it more personally if you have a planet or angle around 8-11 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Capricorn and Libra….or if you were born around the 30th of March, June, September or December.
At 9:42PM ET mindset and communication gets lighter, as mental Mercury fiiiiiinallly ditches intense and controlling Scorpio for the philosophical, pie-in-the-sky world of Sagittarius. Give yourself a day or so to adjust to the shift in gears, especially with Sagittarius (world-famous for its vulnerability to foot-in-mouth disease). Not only that, but Mercury is fast-approaching an exact square to nebulous Neptune, suggesting exceptionally rose-colored thinking through the weekend. Cue The 5th Dimension now, please. Or The Beatles, if you prefer. And do pay attention when you are in motion over the next few days. Your head may be in the clouds, but keep your feet firmly planted on the ground, lest ye trip and fall.
Speaking of a head in the clouds…you may recall it was no surprise to hear “speed” cited as a possible cause of the Metro North train that derailed in The Bronx on Sunday, killing four people. The chart for the approximate time of the accident — 7:20AM ET — has aggressive Mars prominently placed. And yesterday it was reported that the train was doing 82mph in a 30mph zone. With nebulous Neptune in the area of that chart referring to mindset, I have been waiting for the papers to report that the train engineer’s mental state was seriously befuddled — and here is that headline.
Also in the air — reflecting the aerospace breakthrough suggested by the Monday’s New Moon and the weekend’s harmonious alignment between the high-flying Sagittarius Sun and rocket scientist Uranus in pioneering Aries: have you heard that Amazon can hardly wait to start delivering its wares by air –as in thousands of cute little drones flying right to your front door? Call me a Luddite, but I’m with Maureen Dowd on this one — especially when she tells us how other cute little drones are already being used in so many ways.
Finally, as anticipated in Monday’s forecast — two “good-for-business” headlines reflecting next week’s alignment between expansive Jupiter and authoritarian Saturn: 1) Detroit may file for bankruptcy, rules a federal judge; and 2) Illinois just passed a bill to overhaul its pension system for state workers.
Need another dreamy fix of The 5th Dimension? Here’s “Aquarius/Let the Sun Shine In” — written in 1969, three years after the exact three hits of the Uranus and Pluto conjunction in Virgo. I wonder what kind of music we’ll be hearing in 2018, three years after the exact seven hits of the current Uranus-Pluto square…
